"Kim Jong-un threatens to use nuclear weapons and potential military conflicts with the U.S. and South Korea by hung Jin Kim, Associated Press, Seoul, South Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un warned he's ready to use his nuclear weapons and potential military conflicts with the United States and South Korea, state media said Thursday, as he unleashed fiery rhetoric against rivals, he says, are pushing the Korean Peninsula to the brink of war. Kim's speech to war veterans on the 69th anniversary of the end of the 1950 53 Korean War was apparently meant to boost internal unity in the impoverished country amid pandemic related economic difficulties. While Kim has increasingly threatened his rivals with nuclear weapons, it's unlikely that he would use them first against the superior militaries of the U.S. and its allies, observers say. Our armed forces are completely prepared to respond to any crisis. And our country's nuclear award deterrent is also ready to mobilize its absolute power dutifully, exactly, and swiftly in accordance with its mission. Kim said in Wednesday's speech, according to the official Korean central news agency. He accused the United States of demonizing North Korea to justify its hostile policies. Kim said regular U.S. South Korea military trails that he claims target the north highlight U.S. double standards, and gangster like aspects, because it brands North Korea's routine military activities and apparent reference to its missile tests as provocations or threats. Kim also alleged the new South Korean government of president Yun suk yo is led by confrontation maniacs and gangsters who have gone further than previous South Korean conservative governments. Since taking office in May, the union government has moved to strengthen souls military alliance with the United States, and bolster its own capacity to neutralize North Korean nuclear threats, including a preemptive strike capability. Talking about military action against our nation, which possesses absolute weapons that they fear the most is preposterous, and is very dangerous, suicidal action, Kim said. Such a dangerous attempt will be immediately punished by our powerful strength and the Yun sukul government and his military will be annihilated. South Korea expressed deep regret over Kim's threat and said it maintains a readiness to cope with any provocation by North Korea in a powerful effective manner, in a statement read by spokesperson Kong in soon, June's presidential national security office said South Korea will safeguard its national security and citizens safety based on a solid alliance with the United States. It urged North Korea to return to talks to take steps toward denuclearization. Earlier Thursday, South Korea's defense ministry repeated its earlier position that it's been boosting its military capacity and joint defense posture with the United States to cope with escalating North Korean nuclear threats. In April, Kim said North Korea could preemptively use nuclear weapons if threatened, saying they would never be confined to the single mission of war deterrent. Kim's military has also test launched nuclear capable missiles that place both the U.S. mainland and South Korea within striking distance. U.S. and South Korean officials have repeatedly said in the past few months that North Korea is ready to conduct its first nuclear test in 5 years. Kim is seeking greater public support, as his country's economy has been battered by pandemic related border shutdowns. U.S. led sanctions, and his own mismanagement. In May, North Korea also admitted to its first COVID-19 outbreak, though the scale of illness and death is widely disputed in a country that lacks the modern medical capacity to handle it. Kim's rhetoric inflates external threats to justify his militarily focused and economically struggling regime, said leif Eric easley, a professor at ay university and soul. North Korea's nuclear and missile programs are in violation of international law, but chem tries to depict his destabilizing arms buildup as a righteous effort at self defense. Experts say North Korea will likely intensify its threats against the U.S. and South Korea as the allies prepared to expand summertime exercises in recent years, the South Korean and U.S. Military have canceled, or downsized some of their regular exercises due to concerns about COVID-19 and to support now stalled U.S. led diplomacy aimed at convincing North Korea to give up its nuclear program in return for economic and political benefits. During Wednesday's speech, Kim said his government recently set tasks to improve its military capability more speedily to respond to military pressure campaigns by its enemies, suggesting that he intends to go ahead with an expected nuclear test. But Chong Chong Chong at the private sea Zhong institute in South Korea said North Korea won't likely conduct its nuclear test before China, its major ally, and biggest aid benefactor holds its Communist Party convention in the autumn. He said China worries that a North Korean nuclear test could give the United States a justification to boost its security partnerships with its allies that it could use to check Chinese influence in the region. North Korea recently said it is moving to overcome the COVID-19 outbreak amid plummeting fever cases, but experts say it's unclear if the country can lift its strict restrictions soon because it could face a viral resurgence later this year. During Wednesday's event, chem, veterans and others did not wear masks, state media photos showed. On Thursday, North Korea reported 11 fever cases, a huge drop from the peak of about 400,000 a day in May. North Korea has rejected U.S. and South Korean offers for medical relief items. It has also said it won't return to talks with the United States unless it first abandons its hostile policies on the north. In an apparent reference to U.S. led sanctions and U.S. South Korean military drills. This episode was brought to you by mint mobile. Hate your phone bill? Yeah, most people do.

"So there's a lot of speculation swirling about about Biden's State of the Union I've seen it even in some Relatively right leaning outlets that are saying well Biden has a chance to turn things around The first couple of years of the Clinton presidency weren't necessarily good He left office with 55% plus approval The first couple of years of the Reagan presidency weren't necessarily that great Well the first year was second year not so much But Reagan turned it around is Biden have this opportunity tonight with the State of the Union what's the problem with that The problem is that the reason Biden's presidency is not going to turn around is because it's Joe Biden There is no Joe Biden's Friends including the president when he was vice president said and I quote don't underestimate Joe's ability to things up Dropping F in there if you know what I mean These are people who are closest to them There is no reason to believe this man has the capacity to change course or the compass to do it Now the Clinton administration granted not a fan of the Bill Clinton obviously I think you can figure that out based on my politics but he did give his speech at one point where he said the era of big government is over Believe it was a State of the Union He did that because for all of the knocks on Bill Clinton and believe me there are not a lot of knocks including a knock on the Oval Office throw What are you doing in there sir Is an intern in there with you I'll be back a little later Give me a few minutes Bill Clinton had a lot of issues But Bill Clinton could lick his finger and see the political wins and what direction they were going through He got that He understood it He had the famous sister soldier moment You look it up for those not in our generation Jim For your little younger if you're in your 30s or below most of you well most of you probably know what it is anyway When you called out that entertainer and people on the left told them I leave it alone and he did it anyway But he had kind of a dick Morris around them Biden surrounded himself with idiots He surrounded himself with dunces Jake Sullivan Ron klain peppermint patty these are not tactical geniuses These aren't people who even have the ability to analyze what the other side is thinking So forget me but I have no hope whatsoever that Joe Biden is going to course correct tonight at all Not even a little bit What am I basing that on Again evidence Joe Biden's career has been full of faux pas failed presidential runs and an ability to get elected only in his state of Delaware He's shown no evidence to be a politician that appeals to both sides of the political aisle Playbook Politico has a thing this morning too saying hey watch for the president tonight to reframe build back worse Build back better I should qualify for build back better Tonight into a four point economic plan LS lawmakers to work on immediately Reuters is reporting that in the State of the Union tonight Biden is going to promote these things that seem familiar Ask me which one of these things is going to contribute to a course correction in the United States economically healthcare wise education wide COVID wise public safety wiser national security office And this is what he's going to focus on tonight according to Reuters Raising pell grants for education Oh there you go Jimbo He's got this thing down That'll do it That'll scare Putin right off Sir mister president mister Putin Yeah Biden's giving a speech to that He's talking about increasing pell grants Get tropes out General maximoff turn your troops around sir That 70 mile motorcade can you do a U turn Austin Powers on the zamboni turn it around Bring it back Fire reminds me of my friend one timey He thought he got two stakes but one of them was actually a potato upside down So he gave us one of the steak he kept the potato when he found out it was a potato He said bring it back It's a potato Bring it back You think pell grants are going to make them do what you turn My Friends let's say right now I'm going to get a kick out of it He remembers that story well Bring it back It's a potato Pell grants So the cost of university education is exploded out of control because of the third party payer effect Us disconnecting the student from the university by instituting a middleman a third party payer the third party payer being government and Joe Biden wants to solve that problem by making the third party payer even more important to giving away more money That'll scare Putin off that'll definitely bring down prices You know how you bring down prices and Joe Biden's crazy mind You bring down prices by giving people more money to spend on things They don't have enough money to spend on now which will drive the price up even more But in Joe Biden's world that's what's called a solution Oh my gosh is this guy an idiot Really This guy is a dunce Okay so that's number one Here's another thing they're saying he's going to talk about tonight Raising the federal minimum wage to $15 Forget it It's over now I can already see it Putin's probably listening to this show on WMA elo had ever W Jerry's getting he's getting on bungee dot com right Putin says minimum wage turn it around General sarcoma turnout motorcade around bring it back Bring it back as a potato Bring it back $15 an hour minimum wage Now we have a crisis now one of the largest issues small businesses are having is finding qualified employees And we're going to make that better somehow by increasing the federal minimum wage to make the private sector have an even more difficult time competing with the federal government and crowd out effect He has Biden hasn't thought any of this because he's surrounded himself with a Motley crew of idiots He's got Ron klain Ron klain peppermint patty and Jake Sullivan surrounding him giving him advice Here's another one He's so gray and according to Reuters it's going to bring up tonight Another policy prescription here A national paid family leave program Oh that'll definitely do it Oh my gosh that'll turn things around tomorrow I know in my neighborhood where I live in Martin county she's a pretty middle class county It's not Palm Beach but we have some nice areas but pretty middle class I know when I go into the diner on Sunday after church and I have my 6 eggs a bagel and my Ebola oatmeal and sourdough toast you You eat all that Yes I ordered that in the lady goes okay done I go no no that's just me My wife and kids have to win her too Now she doesn't do that anymore but the first time I ordered that she was like that's just for you I'm like yeah yeah no that's just my stuff My kids want her So when I know what I said and I go in there I know everybody comes up to me He goes damn Inflation Healthcare prices COVID Supply chain management It's all a problem but you know what's on my mind Dan Yes sir Thanks for stopping at the table What's on your mind Wait wait sir let me guess Paid family leave Yes yes that's it That is it Dan How did you know I don't know sorry just have my finger on the pulse of America You're right Paid family leave That's it Federal paid family That's it Now you sit there and this is not a matter to Mark No Biden is With everything going on right now This is what you're doing You're forcing companies to institute a policy By the way there are employees many of their employees don't even want They want workplace flexibility Some people like the gig economy Some people like their jobs as they are now They like their sick pay arrangement Now paid family leave is going to cost companies money especially if it's mandated by the federal government Then they should be doing that They should be doing a lot of things They should be paying everybody a $100,000 a year if they could That's not the real world liberal dunces I live.

The fact that you know Circles continue to run into each other and from our time at verizon soda bounce into each other at that dinner the other night i thought was really a fortuitous Yeah thank you thank you. Thank you for having me yet man. I loved it. It was great. I stood up to introduce myself at dinner. I look over there. You were saying connect with. Chris again has been way too long it has. You've been doing some really cool stuff. I mean i know you're over a tenable. He made the shift back to the government to serve again. Congratulations on making that shift in appreciative. So the country You know one of the things that we were talking about the other night which loaded kind of picked a conversation. Back up you know is is the public private partnership you know we. We've been talking about this now for for quite some time right. I mean obviously with the anniversary of nine eleven coming up. It's kind of like a real conversation around while at started Debate the information sharing failures in gaps etc. But at the end of the day. You know we're still having this conversation. I like to think some things have gotten better but your view of where you sit now of how. How are things going in that space. So you know. It's funny in the mentioning. I'm probably while. I'm definitely repeating myself to you. Whether the rest of the world has heard me say this or not you. You've probably heard some version of this in the past You know the public partnership is is a wonderful thing But i don't think people always understand sort of what lies beneath this construct of a public private partnership now. I'm kind of cynical. And i'm going to say i'm not wearing my navy hat right this minute. I'm gonna talk from the defense contracting world. Because you know you and i crossed paths at verizon when we were there together I've worked for a bunch of defense contractors. I worked for a tech startup. That went that failed miserably I worked for one. That went public when i was at tenable time in the military in uniform. Active duty reservists governments. I think i. I'm not saying i'm an expert in this by any stretch of imagination. Just think i've had the opportunity to observe this from just about every denigrate vantage point for sure. Yeah i mean. I've been able to observe this from just about every angle sitting in the cheap seats kinda watching this whole cynically. The public pyro partnership is all about you know what the other. Party's going to get out of this right. So i think when cynically when the defense contractors or the commercial sector look at public private partnership it's sorta like what can i get from the government right. What what contract can i get them to sign with me. How can i. How can profit from this. I think when the government looks at the same argument is sort of like well. What can i get from industry for free. now that might have been circuit ten years ago. I do think we're in a better spot where we are now With with the sharing of information. You know i i have a my own issues with the cnc construct and putting more onus of security back on the on the commercial sector albeit there are things that the commercial sector could be doing to be better Working with the government etc but but this public private partnership thing. I don't think that we've we've hammered out enough to sort of understand what each side wants out of this. We talked about information sharing in at the surface. That's great right. We all want sort of transparent very quick information sharing. But i think the commercial world would say look the information that we derive from the things that we do does not happen free. You know. it's not at no cost to us. We have organizations. We pay employees. We have you know whatever benefits that we pay for. When it comes to data that they ingest or whatever you on the government would say oh well will on the flip side what we do and how we collect information through the intelligence community through through you know means and techniques and tactics and things that are you know then you then you bounce into those two problems in the government can't share because it's classified in the commercial sector has issues because it costs them something to do this and they're looking to be made whole I don't think anybody acknowledges that on the surface but deep deep deep down in the outside. I'm trying to think of one of those movie lines at the places you don't to talk about at dinner parties or some quote from a movie. There's something that's you know. It's that deep. Deep deep thing that we don't acknowledge openly to each side of the equation. And it.

"Defendable, Almost the entire country. We're gonna talk to Josh Rogan. Today, he wrote a book called Chaos under Heaven. In part, he talks about covert, and he talks about the U. S China relationship under President Donald Trump. It's a fantastic book. It's fantastic conversation. We have that want to play for you right here. My name is Rob Hunter, joined by Mike Russell. Let's get this going. This is Josh Rogan. He has written a book called Chaos under Heaven. And this is Josh is first book has been a journalist for a long time. And I've been a long time political reader in Josh. I'm just gonna pay this continent, right? I grew up reading the Woodwards. I grew up reading the Bernsteins this book as far as explaining the U. S China relationship and really digging into how the Trump administration worked. His first of all, It's just phenomenal, so credit to you on the reporting in the sourcing of it, And I wanted to ask you about that. Just from the hours you put into writing this book, as you talked to. Oh, I don't know. Dozens of officials and you hundreds of officials. You flew on Air Force two with Vice President Pence. You were here in Scottsdale, where we live with Robert O'Brien from the National Security office. So what was that experience like for you In the start to the finish of this book, you know, Thank you for asking about, you know? For those readers aren't familiar with my work. Basically, I'm not a left die and not a right guy amount of Democrat. I'm not a Republican. I'm not even a pro trump or an anti trump guy. I've always focused on foreign policy, and I've always realized that the government Trade back and forth, So I was source and that people on both sides. So when the Trump administration came in a lot of the mainstream media reporters didn't really no. Have you no know who to talk to, But a lot of I still had good sourcing. I have a lot of good opportunities, a lot of people helping along the way. The other thing was that if you remember in 2016 and 2017, it was all about Russia, Russia, Russia, Russia, Rightly or wrongly, I wanna Get into that whole thing, But we had 50 people working on Russia and I was one of the very few working on China. So I had, you know, basically a lot of running room and I was collecting all this crazy information much more than I could put into these columns in the Washington Post it over time, It seemed clear that I had enough to write a book and then I'll have to figure out how to do that. And then they get I need time to write. Stand home. I had nothing. I know where to go. I was literally stuck in my guest room, You know, with absolutely no excuse, but to sit down and write this book. And, of course, the pandemic, wrote the China issue home to the minds and hearts and of every American, so it made the book. I think more relevant to our people's lives, and it made the story a little a lot more. Crazy to be sure, you know, you know, I would. Rather the pandemic had not happened, Of course, but you know a zit Turns out it was it was, it was crucial to the story in crucial to our understanding of how the U. S and China. Interact and just Rogan's book is chaos under heaven. It is highly recommended for one major reason. I'll say this is there's a lot of political books out there that are written by 30 hands in air quotes written by politicians that haven't even seen a page before it's published. This man actually went through all of the process and wrote his very first book Now, did you? Did you have any mentor ship in doing that? Because so many people say, you know, I'm gonna write a book. I think I'm gonna write a book and not really know what that entails. You have had so much information to amass, organized and put into book form. Did you have any help in that? How did you do? That was the process. Yeah, well, I did kind of help, You know, First of all, you have to remember that this is an era where the relationship between the Trump administration. The media was very crazy and very You know, toxic And despite that dozens of people from the vice, I mean, I I travel around the world with Vice President Pence and National Security Advisor O'Brien and Defense Secretary Esper a few times. You know, we went toe dozens of countries to see how our China strategy was. You know, playing out? You know, it wasn't always a pretty picture, you know, but a lot of them did their best in a tough situation. And there were hundreds of people involved in those trips to and then documents and interviews and sitting with all these people for hours and hours when they had other, more important, probably things to do. So, you know, it was because these people who are working on this issue wanted the world to know what had happened in our Crucial relationship at this crucial time. They thought it was important that somebody get all of this into one space some out, you know, And so that's why they help me, you know, and you know, on the journalism side yet, you know you you have your publishers. You have your agent. I have my bosses of the Washington Post too. You know, when I told him I wanted to. I told them I wanted to go see the Dalai Lama in India and in Dharamsala, one of the top this mountain I asked my boss for Italian like steak, and I go for two weeks and to go to India to climb up a mountain and go interview the Dalai Lama and he just looked at me And he said, I hope you find enlightenment..

The rise of Poland's far right has important lessons for Americans

"Election of Donald J. Trump. We in the United States have become accustomed to a degree of fabulous. Um I've done more for black Americans than anybody. With the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, the president, self aggrandizement provides the framework for his alternate reality. We have one of the lowest mortality rate way had 900 Deaths in a single day. You have the numbers place because I heard we had the best mortality number one low mortality, right? We are being given something I can't recall in my lifetime, a choice of realities. One that is mostly regarded as evidence based and one that you might call faith based that faith being in Mr Trump In either case, you have a sizable cohort to back you up. Truth has been displaced in many quarters by rage and fear. Over the past four months, we've had many opportunities to observe the impact of paranoia. When deployed by a fantasist in the White House in Arizona Man died after taking Clara Quien, his wife said that they heard about it from Trump's briefings. Are you gonna allow the government to tell you you have to wear a mask? Some believe these mask orders go against their freedoms will protect. All right, I will know asked me and I will not pay for antibiotics. Conspiracies of Sena numbers swell on Facebook and doctors warn, if left unchecked, they could undermine an effective vaccine. The death toll from the Corona virus pandemic has surpassed 150,000 in the United States. That's the highest number of fatalities in any nation by far. And accounts for nearly 1/4 of the recorded global. Told immediately after the 2016 election, I spoke with New York ER writer Masha Gessen, who, after having lived long under Vladimir Putin had some advice for anxious Americans trying to navigate the so called new normal. She explained that for the would be authoritarian, the lying is the point that the ability to create a reality flagrantly staring down conspicuous fact. Is a crucial component of building and sustaining power. And last fall boxes, David Roberts noted bluntly, where such a strategy left unchecked, could lead this sort of cultish, increasingly authoritarian movement takes over the country. In Russia and Turkey and Poland. Right's a disturbingly longer and longer list. We see countries that we thought were democracies devolve into this. In the U. S. So much has happened in the last few years that we thought would never happen. I think we should really loosen up our imaginations as to what can happen when a movement that is convinced that everything it knows and loves is in danger of falling apart movements that's thinking like that unconnected anymore to fax or reality. And got its hands on the power of the federal government is the basic recipe for democracy is falling apart. And so last fall on, the media producer Leia Feder reported on one of those places Poland, a young democracy teetering on unstable ground and where it's far right Nationalist government is intent on rewriting the nation's painful history. For almost a decade, Poland has been in the grip of a conspiracy theory what really happened when a plane crashed in a forest in western Russia, killing Poland's president and dozens of other government officials. The plane had been on route to commemorate another Polish tragedy, a massacre that had occurred in the very same location in 1940. 1973 documentary explored the mystery While the German army is advancing from the West, the Soviets crossed Poland's eastern front court in a method of Polish army collapsed, Um, surrendered. The victors, divided the country down the middle and imprisoned every soldier they captured. Russia took a 215,000 Poland officer Corps were never seen alive again. Many. What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth.
