"FM 97 7 Good evening art Sanders along with you at 7 47 right now The challenge along the southern U.S. border continues to grow for the Biden administration more than 13 thousand Venezuelan migrants were among those intercepted as they tried to cross into the United States in October and immigration reporter Nick Morris is covering it for The Washington Post and spoke with como's Bill O'Neill Nick that number represents the highest one month total ever of Venezuelans stopped as they tried to enter the country Yeah that's right And twice the number who arrived in August So the tendency continues to be upward and during the 2021 fiscal year that just ended on September 30th nearly 50,000 Venezuelans were taken into custody by CVP along the Mexico border That is by far the highest total we've seen No no Venezuela is a country with a number of issues What is driving these Venezuelans to try to enter the U.S. and bigger and bigger numbers As many of your listeners know Venezuelans have been migrating to the United States for 20 years now really ever since a former leader Hugo Chavez came to power many of those first wave of immigrants settled in South Florida They tended to have visas and arrived by air what's different about this new wave of migrants is they're coming across the border They reflect a much broader range of Venezuelans and they're this current wave is composed of both Venezuelans who have left their country recently as economic conditions there continue to be terrible and the coronavirus pandemic has hit the country very hard But we're also seeing Venezuelans who left their country years earlier and resettled in Colombia or Ecuador or Peru They're on the move again as those countries also suffer from the effects of the pandemic and the economic fallout They're sensing an opportunity to come to the United States now And once they get here the overwhelming likelihood is that they will be released into the United States and allowed to stay that we had any reaction from the Biden administration as to the Venezuelans in particular in these numbers here The Biden administration extended temporary protected status to Venezuelans in March That granted essentially a kind of provisional residency to more than potentially 300,000 Venezuelans who were already living here without some kind of legal status And so their extension of those TPS protections is believed to be at least according to some of the impression attorneys we've spoken to One of the drivers of this current wave given that some of the Venezuelans believe that if they if they can get here that they will be extended those protections even though the Biden move explicitly stated it's only for people who are here before March Now behind the scenes what we know the United States is doing is talking to other countries in the region particularly Colombia to see if countries in South America will take back Venezuelans who had resettled who had settled in their nations before leaving for the United States But so far there's nothing been concrete has been announced And in the meantime the United States is trying to get Mexico to tighten up its Visa requirements for Venezuelans to crack down on management's were flying to Mexico and then walking across the U.S. border That's Nick Muir off and you can read much more on this online go to Washington Post dot com That's como's bellow neill Pakistan is welcoming another round of talks between the U.S. and the Taliban a spokesperson for Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the talks would be a welcome development and called for enhanced engagement of the international community with Afghanistan Pakistan is home to more than 3 million Afghan refugees U.S. and Taliban officials will arrive in Qatar next week for two days of talks Your money at 20 and 50 passed the hour on como news Sponsored by propelled insurance As they did earlier in the day in Europe U.S. stocks tumbled today The major index is all dropping at least 2.2% As fears about a new coronavirus variant spreading in South Africa sent investors seeking safe haven assets The down industrial skit at 905 points or two and a half percent The S&P 500 lost 106 points and the NASDAQ composite slid 353 Stocks in almost all sectors lost ground particularly travel related companies but healthcare shares were an.

"That's wrong is my OBD or been David. And now it's time for our second discussion. So Miriam having said it to yuli, is it time to say it to Simon Ferris? Yeah, they are connected, I believe. As Rx magazine recently reported in 1984, diplomat and politician Colette avital came back to Israel after a three year foreign ministry posting in Paris. Against the backdrop of an economic crisis in Israel with 450% inflation, recent elections had produced a deadlock. This had led to the formation of a labor Li could national unity government and a rotation agreement with labor leader Shimon Peres serving first as prime minister to be swapped out two years later by Likud leader yitzhak shamir. Colette avital, who moved to Israel from Romania in 1950 when she was ten, was then a career diplomat, but she was also a socialist leaning laborite in her bones. She did what any brilliant ambitious mid career political animal would do in her position. She reached out to try to get a job with the new administration, perhaps as Paris media adviser. Yossi balen, who was Paris cabinet secretary told her that her name was proposed to Paris for the media adviser job, but quote he rejected you out of hand because you're a woman..

"Chief in Tokyo. To Myanmar now where the junta leader min hung land has announced the release of more than 5000 prisoners arrested for protesting the February 1st military coup. Ronan Lee, the academic and author now joins me to look at the latest situation in the country. Ronan, what did the leaders say about the prisoner release? Well, the releasing they say 5000 prisoners. We understand that some of them will be political prisoners, but what they're indicating is not a relaxation of repression. The repression is going to continue. There's a complete lack of transparency about in fact who is being released. There are serious questions, of course, to be asked about why many of those people are in jail in the first place. I mean, these are people who were who were arrested and jailed, certainly there were not anything that you'd consider to be a fair trial. But many of them were gelled simply for being participants in anti military activities and anti coup activities. And some of them that have been in jail or the family members of activists. So when the military weren't able to get their hands on the activists they wanted to try and lure them in they'd arrest children, wives and husbands. But what's important here is the signal that this sends and the signal is that the military is incredibly embarrassed because of international activities that have happened this week. They've been utterly snubbed by ASEAN. And they have a deep concern about what that means domestically for them. And so is that why the prisoners have been released? With that question with that question. So as EN has damaged the domestic legitimacy of the military junta. The junta always relied upon Asian to give it some sense of international legitimacy. They were of course critical of bodies like the UN that have that message stronger on human rights. But as EN has a view that it does indeed intervene in sovereign states and tends not to get involved in domestic politics. So the John to had a feeling that it could, it could leverage as the end for its own interests and by demonstrating that Asian was giving was giving the crew leaders some international legitimacy, it could try to diminish resistance to the coup and to military rule domestically. And that's all changed because ASEAN has disinvited the coupe and mingling from the ASEAN form. If they are saying something to major international meeting, it was scheduled to include will include President Biden. So this is a big snub for me and mass military. Will there be representation from the country that just isn't from the military, though? We're led to believe that there'll be one Asian has called non political representation. And what that will be remains to be seen. It's very unclear how you could achieve that. But what's most significant is that ASEAN has decided that there will not be representation from anybody that represents the military government. So it's been seen by the military as they've taken it as an affront. State media today says that they are the military run state media saying we're the only ones taking seriously the threat that is posed by what they call the terrorism of the alternate government. The alternate government is the national unity government made up of everyone else within Myanmar, the politicians that were elected at last November's general election in the country representatives of ethnic minority groups representatives of young people and of women's groups and of trade unions within Myanmar. They're what the military now portrays as terror groups, which is ludicrous. When you consider that these are the groups that represent the will of the people of Myanmar. But the military presents the situation that Asia now has gone soft on terror, rather than a situation where Asian is acknowledging the will of the people within Myanmar as he ends albeit reluctantly creating a huge reputational issue now for the Myanmar for the Myanmar military. And this will encourage stronger resistance to the military code. I mean, as you said, as he has done this, excuse me, reluctantly, they don't normally intervene in the domestic affairs of member states. What's pushed them to this point? Well, I think there was going to be a huge reputation issue for Asia and itself. You simply couldn't have a situation where President Biden and other world leaders would turn up to an international would turn up to the essen forum with someone like minon Lang a genocide or criminal on the same platform of them. So I think there was an issue for Asian that to maintain any level of international credibility themselves. They needed to make sure that world leaders didn't run away from their meetings. And I think that was the real potential. I think there was a very real likelihood that President Biden and others might have felt that they would not be able to attend, attend as he and meetings, if figures like minon Lang were on were proposed to be on the platform. So while as he and came to this reluctantly, it's actually a very positive step in terms of promoting democracy within Myanmar. So back in April, Asian agreed of 5 point plan with the military to deescalate the crisis. What does this latest move mean for that plan? Does it still stand? Very little happened was happened with the plan. Has managed now to appoint an envoy. I mean, it's been a better part of 6 months. There's been no the envoy hasn't visited me and mom. It's been made clear by the junta that the envoy won't be allowed to meet with opposition political figures. So the representatives of the people are on census and the ousted president of the country. So there have been very little progress. And this was a big problem for us again that it had stored as the international body that was telling the world that problems within Myanmar, we can get involved in and you should work through us. But then nothing had been achieved. So by the time we come to October, there is now heavy pressure on ASEAN to stop being weak and really this is now come to a head. And it's come to a head not because SEN wanted to. But it's come to a head because the rest of the international community has said to us again, we'll look if you want to maintain any level of international legitimacy. You're going to have to do something positive here that signals that Asian is not comfortable with the state of politics, domestically within Myanmar. Hence the release of these some 5000 prisoners. How many political prisoners does that leave incarcerated? And what are the conditions in which they're being held? Well, the conditions are horrific. Know that there have been some hundreds that have been tortured to death while in prison. There'll be certainly more than 5000 still within prison. I mean, this is an attempt I think by the military jaunty to distract from its embarrassment with ASEAN. They do this from time to time. This is no sign that they're intending to relax their oppression or anything of the sort that that will continue..

"Hills is the world we start with a big meeting kicking off in new york. Today it's opening day at the seventy six session of the united nations general assembly. One hundred ninety three member states are taking part but to countries present an immediate challenge. The first is afghanistan and the question here is whether the un will officially recognize the taliban as the legitimate representative of the afghan government. The other country is me and it was taken over in a military coup back in february which was followed by a deadly crackdown by the army to governments claim to run myanmar. So the un has to decide which one to recognize the world's southeast asia correspondent. Patrick win reports on. What the un's decision on me and mark could mean for the troubled country who deserves to run the country of myanmar for a lot of folks. That's pretty obvious. It's the people who won election last november only they are now tormented by military that has seized power and instead of sitting in parliament there in prison or on the run. Some of them remain underground in me emma. They don't go out. They rely on their relatives to get them food. Many of them have to change locations.

"The national unity government and they can take up arms against the military or they can put up with the military gionta. And i think the way they'll be feeling now. Is that that any ambivalence that they might have felt on their own part about taking up arms. Will that's been clarified. Now and endorsement. From the national unity government will be seen domestically as an endorsement by on sense achie- for taking up arms. And i think that's what's important in many ways. It was her actions during the nineteen hundred onwards where she endorsed peaceful approach. She prioritize negotiation and and really. She was seen as a politician who was against using violence. To get rid of the military and people will people will remember that but p and people follow too and people now though will look at the look at what the national government has said and they will see that this is aung san suu chee directing them to take up arms against the me and military. It's it's a it's a it's a bold move and it i think represents a clear change in direction within me and my and a strong rebuke of as the as well This week as yen serve as he ends envoy to me and maronites that that he had reached some agreement with the military that there would be negotiated. There could be a negotiation and a ceasefire For for a period of time this is a strong rebuke of as fans role within me. And my which has not been seen by the opposition as as legitimate. It's been seen as as as backing the military. So ronin very briefly. How should the international community reacting to this move. Well the have to react because next week. The united nations has to make a decision at its credentials committee about which which which representatives of myanmar it will allow to cease in general assembly. Will it allow the representative national unity government to sit there is the legitimate representative of me and my or will it would reject that representative and endorse the military. I i i think the shrewd move. Now on the part of the international community is to back the people of myanmar and to endorse the representative of the national unity. Government and to provide provide strong support to the national unity government. These the people that represent the people in not the military. Join the military june to seen domestically as illegitimate and it holds onto power through violence and terror and the international community should back the people of me and my in getting them out of power.

"Since seizing power. The start of february men must hunter has imposed a lengthy and vicious crackdown against protesters. However running in the comparative background has been a so-called parallel government. Message has been one of relative peace until now the national unity government has formerly called for the people to engage in people's defensive war against the hunter calling people to revolt against them in every corner of the country to stockpile food and medicine and to avoid unnecessary. Travel all to tell us more. I'm joined by ronin leaf visiting scholar at queen mary university of london's international state crime initiative and author of the book man mazorra hindu genocide identity history and hate speech. Good morning ronan. Gets you in the studio. I mentioned a moment ago. That the this so-called parallel government has been running comparatively in the background. What exactly They've been doing. These are the people that represent the politicians that were elected last november at the general election within me and my dad the people also who represent ethnic minorities within me and my and and other groups within the country that have have come together since the code represent young people and represent Th the voices that have been ignored in politics in myanmar may be over the last five years. So it's it's a broad coalition of people who are regarded by the public of me and my as the legitimate government of the country. The these are the people that have the support of the vast majority of myanmar's fifty million people and since the code. They've been very clear that they oppose military rule. They've issued various statements. About what sort of country they want me and to be once they can get the military out of power but significantly and the has been a a loss of violent opposition to the myanmar joint since february but significantly has been a view on meant by many people. When me and my that the national unity government is amby had been ambivalent towards that violence or not prepared to endorse it wholesale. That's changed now and exactly and it has changed very clearly to a more aggressive position. What are the exactly they calling on. The people of men might do will have called for people's revolutionary war. They've called on the people to take every step that they can to remove the military from power important to remember that this a couple of strands of thought within myanmar opposition as to how to deal with the military one strand is is obviously that that's been adopted by particularly by ethnic minority groups over the last many decades which is to take them on militarily to engage in political violence and to fight the military and to try and force them out of power. The other strand has been. Broadly regarded as the sense that she approach peaceful forbearance Patients prioritizing negotiation. And hoping that you can ultimately convinced the military to hand over power peacefully. Now the this is a sign that the the national unity government dominated by people connected with long since it. She has changed direction and has decided that peaceful forbearance isn't going to work and that means that we think going to see a much more violent future within myanmar. it takes it in a certain direction that once. You've started this. You can't stop it water people's fears for what might follow. We'll it's what we feared. When the coup occurred in february that there could be state collapse within myanmar. a and. i think the reason the hasn't been state collapsed within me and marriage. The national unity government didn't wholesale endorse political violence so that there was the formation of a people's defense groups defense organizations within the country so these these groups of people form themselves into into into local and regional armies and linking up with with already armed ethnic minority ethnic groups within the country. But the was a that. The energy didn't support that overwhelmingly whole-heartedly. That's completely changed. And i think what we all now see is something that looks a lot closer to the sort of traditional civil war that we might have seen in other parts of the world where where at conflict and violence is far more widespread importantly as well the spinner reaching out by the national unity government clarification that they support the sorts of civil disobedience movements that have been very active since the coup and again. That's that's been another element of opposition to the military where there was a perception of some ambivalence on the part of the national unity government. They've clarified that entirely. This is now this is now a national unity government that is prepared to endorse every group within the country that he's taking on the military and that wants to get the military out of power whether they're going to do that through civil disobedience or whether they're going to do that through violence if you're assist isn't of man and you had witnessed the protests that have been so violently clamped down upon by the by the hunter and you were then quietly supporting the the parallel government hoping hoping hoping that something might change and a peaceful resolution might come to this. How might you be feeling right now. I think this is a strong sign to those people. Because i think i think people in that category will with the sorts of people who were hoped hoped and prayed that they would be able to get the military out of power through peaceful means and. I think that this has been a. This'll be a wakeup call for them that they've got a. They've got a decision that they've got to make. They can follow the direction of the national unity government and they can take up arms against the military or they can put up with the military gionta. And i think the way they'll be feeling now..

"They're back in february but the democratic resistance is not going away and now the leaders of myanmar's mars opposition are declaring all out war against the country's military rulers. Either alania d delude to you tolan. Apd the official call for all citizens of me and march to revolt. It was posted on facebook. The main speaking as lachey la the acting president of the national unity government government in exile composed of elected officials who fled into hiding after the february coup. Their goal now is to launch an armed uprising against the military and revived me and mars democracy. The world southeast asia correspondent. Patrick wind is on the line with me. How will this declaration of war. Change things on the ground in myanmar. Well i think it's a warning. Marco that this resistance which has already started is about to really intensify after this declaration of war. They're asking everyday people to stockpile food and medicine. Everyday people are told to spy on troop movements and informed the revolutionaries if anyone works for the military government even just as like a tax collector or engineer. Or even a secretary they are put on notice that you should quit and join our movement. Instead or else. I do have to say i'm mostly seeing positive reactions from people in myanmar about this declaration of war. There's just so much rage. Marco at the military which is quite vicious and not very competent at running a country since they've taken over the banking system collapsed. The hospital system has collapsed in. Covert is rampant. So i do have to caution that this revolutionary government it mostly exists online with these exiled politicians hiding out and communicating over encrypted apps and making statements over social media. They don't have any buildings or any liberated area just yet. So how will the resistance of the hunt actually fight this war. They've now declared do they have an army and can match with the generals. Have at this point. It can't match what the generals have they do have an army but one very embryonic state and not a conventional one so after the coup all of these people young and old started slipping into the jungles contacting armed indigenous. Rebel groups in myanmar. And asking them for help you know. Can you train us so that we can take this fight back to the cities where we live in recent months. You've seen this embryonic army spring into action assassinating officials by the hundreds bombing. Police stations and on a weekly basis carrying out all sorts of sabotage operations like blowing up cell phone towers owned by the military. So this is going to be a guerilla war. It's going to be more like the ira than two armies going toe to toe. We'll see what happens. I should note. That monsoon season is just now ending in myanmar. Things are starting to dry out and that's when people usually start the real fighting. What did the military government have to say about this declaration of war patrick. Oh well they said this national unity government..

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

The Chinese government is banning the BBC from airing its world news program in China and as NPR's John Rule, which reports the move comes just days after a decision by Britain's communications regulator to strip a Chinese state TV channel of its broadcast license.

The BBC came under fire in China for report this month on conditions in reeducation camps for ethnic wingers in the Xinjiang region.

"national unity" Discussed on Radio Free Nashville

"By Sebastian Hafner. A memoir. This is from chapter 17, about a little more than a third of the way into the book. At first the Revolution on Lee gave the impression of being and historical event like any other matter for the press that might just possibly have some effect on the public mood. Nazis celebrate Journey January 30th as their day of revolution, they're wrong. There was no revolution on January 30th 1933 just to change of government. Hitler became chancellor. By no means the furor of the Nazi regime cabinet contained only two Nazis apart from him. Swore an oath of allegiance to the Weimar Constitution. The general opinion was that it was not the Nazis who had one but the bourgeois parties with Wright, who had captured in quotes the Nazis and held all the key positions in the government. Constitutional terms. Events have taken a much more conventional UN revolutionary course than most of what had happened during the previous six months, outwardly also that they had no revolutionary aspect, unless one considers a Nazi torchlight procession through Wilhelm's to masa. Or a minor gunfight in the suburbs that night as signs of a revolution. Most of us outsiders. The experience of January 30th 1933 was that of reading the papers and the emotions we felt while we were doing so the morning headline was Hitler called to president. Produced a certain nervous, impotent irritation. Hitler had been called to the president in August and November, He had been offered the vice chancellor ship and then the chancellorship. Both times he had set impossible conditions and both times urban solemn declarations. Never again. Each time never again had lasted exactly three months. Hitler's opponents in Germany at that time suffered from a compulsive urge to offer him everything he wanted into fatigue, a ble and it even cheaper price indeed, depress it upon him. It's the same now, with his opponents outside Germany again and again, this appeasement was formally renounced and again and again and gaily reappeared at the crucial moment. Just so today. Then, as now, one's only hope was Hitler's own unreasonable NUS. Would it not sooner or later exhaust the patients of his opponents? Then, as now it became apparent that their patients know knew no bounds. Mid day, the headline said. Hitler makes impossible demands. We nodded half reassured. It was only two credible. It would have gone against his nature to ask for less than than too much. Perhaps the cup had once more passed from US. Hitler the last defense against Hitler. At about five o'clock. The evening papers arrived. Cabinet of National Unity of Formed formed Hitler Reichs Chancellor I don't know what the general reaction was, for about a minute mind was completely correct. I see horror. Certainly this had been a possibility for a long time You had to reckon with it. Nevertheless, it was so bizarre, so incredible to read it now in black and white Hitler race chancellor For a moment. I physically sense the man's odor of blood and filth, the nauseated approach of a man eating animal. It's foul sharp claws in my face. And I shook the sensation off, tried to smile started to consider and found many reasons for reassurance. That evening, I discussed the prospects of the new government with my father. We agreed it had a good chance of doing a lot of damage but not much chance of surviving very long. Deeply reactionary government with Hitler is as its mouthpiece apart from this and did not really differ much from the two governments that had succeeded Browning's even with the Nazis, it would have been it would not have a majority in the Rex Dog. Of course that could always be dissolved. The government had a clear majority of the population against it, in particular the working class, which would probably go Communist now that the Social Democrats and completely discredited themselves. One could prohibit the communist but one could, but that would only make one more dangerous. In the meantime, the government would be likely to implement reactionary social and cultural measures with some anti Semitic end additions to please Hitler that would not attract any of its opponents to its side. Foreign policy would probably be a matter of banging the table. There might be an attempt to re arm that would automatically add the outside world to the 60% of the home population who were against the Hitler government. Besides, who were the people who had suddenly started voting Nazi in the last three years? Misguided ignoramus is, for the most part victims of propaganda. A fluctuating mass that would fall apart of the first disappointment. Know all things considered, this government was not a cause for alarm. The only question was what would come after it. It was possible that they would drive the country to civil war. The Communists were capable of going on the attack before a prohibition against them came into force. Next day. This turned out to be the general opinion of the intelligent press. It is curious how plausible an argument it is even today. And we know what came next. How could things turn out so completely different? Perhaps it was just because we were all so certain that they could not do so. Relied on that with far too much confidence. So we neglected to consider that it might, if worse, came to worst be necessary to prevent the disaster from happening. Through the whole of February 1933 everything that happened to remain a matter for the press. In other words, it took place in an arena that would lose all reality for 99% of the population. In the moment, there were no newspapers. Admittedly enough occurred in that arena, The Reichstag was dissolved. Then in a flag fly flagrant breach of the constitution. Hindenburg also dissolved the pressure regional guff parliament. Were fast and free. You're curious changes of personnel in the civil service book define Hitler..

Biden signs 30 executive orders first few days in office

"So Joe Biden walks into the Oval Office for the first time and sits down and, in essence, signs 17 executive orders with more to come, and they range from everything to rejoining the Paris climate agreement. Extending the moratorium on evictions and foreclosures. This is all about undoing the trump presidency. To what extent can that be accomplished by executive order? Well, there are things you really can do. I mean, it's it's quite remarkable. The degree to which he is able. This is the nature of our system to walk in. And with the stroke of a pen, you really can undo the Muslim ban. Now you can't undo the damage it has caused of the last four years. But there's a reason why he believes this. What some people are calling shock and awe approach to doing it is important. It's sending a message. To the public. That these things are not permanent. But what I think is interesting is when you talk to You talk to the people who are sort of plotting the legislative approach. What they say is there's basically two steps. There's the rescue. And then there's the recovery. The rescue is what you have to do immediately like getting vaccines out like imposing a mandatory mask policy on federal property and interstate travel. And then there's the hard thing. That's exactly the hard thing is big legislation, isn't it? And that demands encountering someone named Mitch McConnell? We've heard for years about Joe Biden's belief in In politics in the way that Barack Obama found distasteful. Remember Barack Obama saying? You go get a drink with Mitch McConnell. Joe Biden seems to thrive on that stuff. Is he deluded? How far going to get Well, he and Mitch McConnell have a relationship in that you know, it is. It is worth both identifying and then identifying the limits of it. It's worth mentioning that Mitch McConnell was the only Republican senator after all, who attended Funeral for Beau Biden in 2015. These two have a very long history. And one thing I'm hearing is that they are in fact, talking quite a bit. They have been in recent weeks now. None of that means that Mitch McConnell is gonna wake up tomorrow and suddenly be a compliant, enthusiastic Promoter of the Democratic Party's interests, But what it means is that there is a basis for communication and a basis for some calculation of the interests of both sides. And that is the core of what Biden basically believes about politics in 18 61. Abraham Lincoln comes forth. It gives his first inaugural address and it's addressed largely to the South, and it's an appeal for unity for the country to stay together the union to stay together. It's an amazing piece of rhetoric. But it failed. Who does Biden have to reach to keep this country from going mad from from becoming so disunited that it becomes non functional. Well, I have to tell you, David, you know that 18 61 address was very much on my mind as I was listening. Abiding. I mean, he summoned as you remember the words of ST Augustine, he said. People are defined as a multitude defined by the common objects of their love. And when I heard that I thought of Lincoln saying, of course, that he was appealing to Americans Bonds of affection as he put it there mystic chords of memory. And six weeks later, the civil War began. So this this fragile notion of coherence of national unity is It's a risky bet, and there's I think the temptation is to assume. Well, well. Biden needs to Somehow reach the people who have been lost to politics. You know, folks who have the kinds of people who are drifting further and further from From, I mean reality to be blunt about it. I think there's another view of this question of the pursuit of unity. And I had a really interesting interview in the days before the inauguration with Reverend William Barber, who is Civil rights leader. He's the co chair of the poor People's campaign. And he's been talking to Biden often on for months, actually, because They both believe in this idea of unity. But Barber is is fairly hard boiled about it. And what he said was look, the Constitution does not call for domestic tranquility. It calls for justice and what that means is that in order to achieve real unity That means you have to attack some of the underlying problems in society, and that may cause you more political disunity in the short

China's Xi vows unceasing fight against Tibet separatism

"China's president has called for what's described as an impregnable fortress to stop separatism in Tibet Xi Jinping, speech, set out the country's policy direction intended to protect national unity, maintain stability, and educate the masses. Well, Isabel Hilton is the editor of China dialogue and has written extensively about Beijing's relationship with Tibet. Hello? Isabelle. Doing. Very. Well, thank you. Tell us what is this impregnable fortress. Well this is come out of the Communist Party Central Symposium on Tibet work, which is the you know the high level. It's the meeting that gathers together everyone who has anything to do with Tabet from security to economics to environment, and of course, the polit bureau is in attendance at the last one was five years ago. So it is quite important to understand the direction that things taking and I have to say it's not a particularly encouraging direction the the emphasis on a border security was not extensively publicized in China but I think that that is undoubtedly related to the continuing tensions with India, and we've seen a number of clashes along that border. But the other. Really important aspect of this statement is is really about hearts and minds, which has been a massive failure in terms of of Chinese occupation of Tibet and the the stress on patriotic education on the fact that monasteries must you know put put the party first and so on. All isses familiar but it's becoming more intense in terms of of of you know government propaganda and just simply failed over the years. So how does it intend to impose or bill this impregnable fortress to maintain not just stability but? Engage in those hearts and minds which which they find so important and what I think probably I'm sorry to say more repression it's. There is a relationship between what happens in Tibetan what happens in Xinjiang, which has lately had some more attention and but the body secretary who? Had A kinda panel up to consecutie system in Tibet then moved to Xinjiang to continue his work. So the security approach is very much the same and it is extremely tight security on on an absolute day to day level. So you know police boxes every few hundred yards kind of panopticon effect on on watching society for any kind of behavior that might be considered deviant. So that's one aspect of it and and the other oil done in the name of national security. and. Then the other aspect is the intense education and signification of Tibet. So it's been some years now since two Beden as a medium of instructions in schools was damaged and and you know there's heavy language pressure heavy cultural pressure on on Tibetans who are encouraged not to have a photographs of the delay in their homes but to her photographs of Xi. Jinping, instead to the the, it's really an an example of enhanced integration. Hitherto has been a policy in the People's Republic at least in name over SPEC for national minorities as they would call them. So Cultural Rights, language rights, and the idea that they could be in some sense autonomous and self governing. Now, that was never entirely implemented but at least it was official policy and that is now being abandoned really in favor of kind of. Han Chinese dominance in every aspect including culture and language, and how is that likely to be received in Tibet? Well. The evidence is that the more pressure the culture comes under in a way, the more people attached to it. So you know the most famous case was in nineteen eighty when when the reports from to bed to the center. Essentially said everyone's forgotten by the Dalai. Lama. They loved the Communist Party. It's all going swimmingly and it emboldened the central government to allow or to think about a visit from the delara sue the Dalai Lama sent. A representative. Group to inspect Tibet to see what conditions would like and as soon as rumors of these people's presence spread across to bet you thousands and thousands of people went to pay homage and his push notes into the hands and to weep and to go for the Dalai Lama. So you know the Chinese never been very good at reading. Tibetan sentiment and every time they criticized the Dalai Lama officially it sort of gives comfort to the Tibetans that. The Dalai Lama still matters and he still bad. So it's it's you know it's not a particularly helpful policy and the more that they cracked down on Tibet. The more Tibetan people feel more. They feel the difference and in a moment ago, you mentioned the fact that Tibet is stuck as well in terms of the relationship, the the very techy relationship that's being played out between India at the moment two degrees either side twenty used to bet. Well I think that this. That that's always I. Guess a problem you know the wasn't a border between India and China until the Chinese occupation of Tibet. So so now we have to Asian supervise and this border which is constantly disputed, which is unresolved and across which flow or manner of things including of course, people you know the flow of refugees to India from Tibet. has been a feature of the years the very large settlements of Tibetan refugees in India, which has given them pretty generous hospitality, the presence of the Dalai Lama in India. Then on the Indian side, you know there is anxiety about water supply because wall of. India's pretty much all of India's water supply comes from the Tibet Plateau, and there is constant fear in Indian security services that that the Chinese can somehow turn the top of which is unlikely but nevertheless it makes them deeply anxious. So there are any number of issues that that would need to be resolved in NFL comprehensive settlement. But at the moment you have to highly nationalistic governments each which is you postures vigorously over Tibet and I think that a settlement is not terribly likely Isabel. Indeed as ever for joining us on monocle twenty four, that was China dialogues is.

'Better America': Biden's Campaign Launches New National Ad

"In one thousand, nine, sixty, four Lyndon Johnson ran a now iconic campaign ad against Barry Goldwater where a little girl counts daisy pedals until her counting becomes the countdown to nuclear explosion idea being present goldwater has become elected and started a nuclear war because he's a madman. said. It. there. Is, are, the stakes. You'll make a world in which all of God's children can live. Aren't to go into the dark room, we must either love each other. Or we must die. Vote for President Johnson on November third, the stakes are too high for you to stay home. The stakes are that you're adorable daughter gets nuked. Now. Even though we're not living through a nuclear winter, we are living through a version of disaster. I mean a a national disaster resulting in thousands and thousands of deaths day after day after day and a new Joe Biden goes against the grain in many ways the opposite of the grand life and death scale the daisy at. The new the biden relates what a bummer. This current disastrous doesn't focus deaths, evictions, closed schools. It says, this virus is ruining the little things like seeing your grandkids. have been gifted with two beautiful grandchildren. We try to see them as often as possible and it's been six months. And it's way too long. And while I don't blame Donald Trump for the virus, I blame him for his lack of action and because of that, we're sitting here zooming or facetime ing with our grandchildren instead of hugging and kissing them. And that's hard. Joe Biden knows every moment is precious I trust you Biden to get this virus under control? I'm Joe Biden and I approve this message. Seems like a really real smart relatable ad for a portion of the population that Joe Biden is trying to focus on. This is for all the people who were sold on idea that there was some normal around the Ben. During the trump years because there is no normal during trump that was false join me. Now for more on the different approaches, the two campaigns are taking is Adrian Shropshire. She's a veteran democratic strategist and executive director of black pack had a lot of experience in politics community organizing and ads as well and I just I was so struck by this ad agent because it's so understood in. So many ways given how terrible things are and given the kind of micro targeted median voter. He's trying to reach you know elderly couple or senior citizen couple in Florida. Yeah I mean the reality is that. Voters understand where we are. They understand the crisis that we're in. They do not. WanNa see campaign after campaign ad reminding them of our national. Right. I've said he focused move after folks. And what? The message that voters say that they want to hear is one of national unity. They WanNa hear message about a path forward how this mess is going to get fixed and I think the brilliant thing about that ad is that. while. It appears to be targeted at one segment of the electorate. The reality is that that is all of us, right? That is my entire family every Sunday night sitting zoom call, right so it is it is. There is a moment where the multipronged crisis that are facing the country are literally touching every single one of us and what's brilliant about the ad is that. You know it's it leads toward that unifying message right? It is it in every message quite frankly every ad I would hope to see that comes out of the campaign on is a way to unify to tell a message to tell a story that connects people about the moment that we're in. It's really if you think about it in this in this way having a national unity being a campaign strategy all by itself.

Native youth talk about struggles of mental health issues during COVID-19

"This is national native news I'm Antonia Gonzalez native. Youth are warning US lawmakers in the midst of the COVID, nineteen pandemic Indian country is struggling to combat mental health issues, which can lead to suicide correspondent. Matt Laszlo has a story from Washington suicide rates in substance. Abuse problems in Indian country are always alarmingly high, but officials fear big spikes during the pandemic. That's in part because these summer months are usually marked by important native social events like powwows or canoeing few friends just to name a few. But most social gatherings are now canceled. The TASHA Gonzalez of California's Bishop Pie tribe is with the unity mission. Feels like. Has Been. Under all this in many younger travel members are confused especially, because many tribal communities haven't seen any coronavirus cases yet, Margot Vonda as a youth leader with twenty, five, hundred, twenty five. So it's been really tough time for them to grass that sort of new reality of staying home to keep safe from a threat that they can't see. Cutty Miller's CO president of the National Unity, council, he's a member of Washington State Swish Indian travel community, which he describes as a small tribe in a small town or their stigma, already surrounding people seeking mental health services. Part of it I think would just be like education. Everybody advocating that you don't have to go. You don't have a problem to go to the counselor. That's Miller and the others are asking Congress to increase mental health funding in the next corona virus stimulus package. For National Native News on that Laszlo in Washington the Executive Director of the National Council of Urban. Indian health says urban Indian centers have been hit hard and have many unmet needs to address Cova Nineteen Francis Curvier recently told the U. S. Commission. On Civil Rights, the federal government is failing in its obligations to native people living in urban areas despite the government's failures are facilities have done everything they can to keep their doors open for the patients who rely on them with or without the pandemic. She says urban Indian organisations were recognized by Congress in the nineteen seventies to assist with healthcare needs of native people living off reservations and native people who lack insurance often rely on. Others crea says many centers have not been able to keep up with the pandemic loading tests, equipment and other resources and funding, and does calling on the federal government to uphold its obligations. Leaders of the Cherokee chickasaw choctaw nation say more dialogue as needed on potential impacts of the mcgurk case, the US Supreme Court recently ruled. Congress never disestablished the Muskogee creek reservation, affirming reservation boundaries, which has led to tribal state and federal jurisdiction questions in a joint statement Monday. The tribes committed to more discussions with stakeholders and the public. The leader say the path forward requires collaboration. Collaboration with the Cherokee chickasaw choctaw seminal and Muskogee Creek nations. The statement follows proposal from Oklahoma's attorney general last week involving jurisdiction in a video message to tribal citizens, Cherokee, nation, principal chief, Chuck Hoskin Junior, said he spent the day listening to citizens and leaders, none of the leaders of the five tribes support eroding sovereignty or turning back the recognition of our reservations achieved through mcgirt. This isn't a stork ruling for Indian. Country and we would never ever undermine this monumental decision. On those points, we all agree leaders at the seminal Muskogee Creek. Nations were quick to disapprove of the state's proposal Friday and called for meaningful government government discussions. I'm Antonio

S. does anyone particular stand out yes there's a lot of fits because in a lot of dates including payroll so I said I think the most important one is mostly the fed to trump house speech all these some introductory remarks at the end of the week and I think because all the dates will be out by then and over seating cincy how in Terps is they to moving forward if you look at the fed was a sorry the fed policy the moment the markets is still factoring in twenty five basis caught by December now if you stated comes out solely to protect if he stops is more neutral stones the question is does someone have to be unwound debate which we don't supportive advice verse of the day comes that week he may yet to signal not that cut is going to happen so I think that made him that he's the beaker. at the end of the week to say and the big event of the week is obviously could have an impact on the dollar so where does that go from here yeah for me I think generally the general trend is still I keep scent of always been a bottle yeah the US side waste outwards and that is so far it's been quite and I think continues one of the real reasons again this is some install a strip some assistant him your weakness which remember that you could bring the dollar index that makes about thirty two percent of the index did you combine that with studying which number ten and eleven percent so as to what they don't let him poems rising V. O. I. I think the always on the inflation data sets me very is key with breaks it off he Pat starting his Olympics it until the the get some sleep the your call me when he starts kissing footage we say and brake systems could move result I think it's very hard for dole to take so you might have sought ways imbalanced keep going higher and higher profits as you move a lot lower I think you need those two thirds so issues to be resolved let's talk about the be a a lot of kind of pressure really on governor low and the team to cut rates today but you know it's not necessarily a done deal showing eighty five percent probability though if you look at the web function what if the I. B. A. does surprise investors and doesn't cut rates which we see those you got here nothing this is a very good question because see in mind I think the market is overpriced and the rate cuts diving certainly if you look at the data has come out we can I think everyone now focuses on the unemployment unemployment rate which went up to five point three percent and given that the all the ice is a naturally is four point five percent that does indicate plan to slack in the economy so do you do any look by the business comments to eighteen consumer complicity rating you certainly have ammunition to say woman right car was itching cover the load last week had a speech and he didn't really come out signal he's he was he normally would do so the questions for me I think it's fifty fifty at best if that she caught if they don't come I think you see a slight knee jerk reaction Hana I think we'll stay below the September love about sixty three against the dollar I think we initiate shorts there and I think. one of the reasons why I wanted to hide them the right car we still remain on the table I think it market which is sad case of delayed a month from here to November I don't think the I think the off a statement if they do decide not to cut would still be like Hey we will cut if necessary the market very quickly say what we think you will get a copy and the particular employment right later this month the other one that we've been focusing on of course is the K. way and it's been hit quite hard will particularly yesterday looks like it's in bad trend is their bottom for the key way yeah certainly some of the problems at the moment I mean the key thing for the key we is the obvious he had its fifty basis point cut in August which was more than expected and you'd like that the feet and the economy set in the symptoms of cups of confidence and optimism unfortunately the IBM Z. furniture business confidence and consumer comes as both as a down tick to September in this case because of the cut as vending factor into it so you would normally expect a short term boost it didn't get any of those this is covered this is gone down to below since two thousand and eight and I think it's next week we have the PMI data manufacturing which was even a contract to tell it to the last two months if it stays there let alone it deteriorates then I think we all did that the mocking suddenly parson another rate cut off in the city in November I think much about seventy five percent I think they'll quickly go towards ninety percent let's talk about the yen because we have the tankan survey today and you know it that was showing a deterioration in that lodge manufacturing sentiment but better than expected when we see the yen maze because a lot of these companies were saying they think an average of about one oh eight point six eight to the tele yeah and then it was very close to what is right now the content can serve as you said it was better than expected but interestingly it was still worse than the previous survey so the trend is still in full she ate well better than expected still deteriorating don't think the Dalian is taken seven doesn't really moved only in that much and you know even if interest rates oversee people I think this month of Serbia conceive the B. H. I. does. ease of see that could have impacted it does and it said we know the boss quite high for them they are still in the market towards amazing. otherwise we'll see the real big thing about that is was gonna risk often that really comes back to I think the China tribal how does that play out eve oversee the wasn't improvement in that sentiment and Dolly and with vice if not totally and we couldn't so I think that's really the big play at the moment and the moment just with choice holidays nothing's really developing in that bit of redwood backwards forwards people because he's the guy shipped the next thing you guys Chasen's guy and I think that we need to be the biggest term and the short term of what all the young guys so this time last week parliament in the U.
