What Biden Could Do (But Won't) to Avoid WWIII

"Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific mortgage at Andrew and Todd dot com. We're going to dive into the continual coverage around Russia and Ukraine. That's not the only thing we're going to cover today. There's a lot of other news stories that I think that are being, let's say, covered up because of the fixation on Russian Ukraine and don't get me wrong. Russian Ukraine the story matters when a superpower invades a small country, that should be something that we talk about and that we dive into and especially the ramifications and the implications here domestically, but there's inflation, there's questions about domestic markets. There's questions about our porous southern border. There's a lot going on here. We're also going to dive deep into the preview of Biden's State of the Union address tonight as he gives his first State of the Union address. But I tried to find some commentary of what Joe Biden has been doing the last couple of days. Now we know he's not a leader. We know he's no Teddy Roosevelt trying to broker peace as Teddy Roosevelt did between the Russians and the Japanese in the early 1900s, which won him a Nobel Peace Prize, but where is Joe Biden exactly?

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords

"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel. What's the price

"Ethiopia's government on tuesday summoned all capable citizens to war urging them to join the country's military to stop resurgent forces from the embattled tigray region once and for all the call to arms is an ominous sign that all of ethiopia's one hundred ten million people of being drawn into a conflict that prime minister abi ahmed a nobel peace prize winner once declared would be over within weeks. The deadly fighting has now spread beyond tigray into neighboring regions. tuesday's announcement effectively ends. The unilateral ceasefire. The government declared in june as its military retreated from tigray it. He's also almost certain to magnify the toll of a nine month. War that does led to the massacre of thousands widespread gang rapes and displacement of entire communities mostly to gran hundreds of thousands of people in tigray now face famine conditions in the world's worst hunger crisis in a decade the prime minister's summons chilled to grains even outside to gray with the statement calling on all ethiopians to be the is and is of the country in order to track down and expose spies and agents of the tigray forces witnesses and lawyers have said thousands of tigrayans already have been detained during the conflict for their identity alone.

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand

"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup

"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.

"Very sad news out of me on mars. Some people call it. Burma long story there. Were it's going to go with myanmar for the purposes of this show but over the weekend the military staged a coup They surrounded myanmar's parliament building and arrested top civilian leaders like onto chee. The commander in chief of burma's military is now defacto in charge. The military has declared a year long state of emergency for those who don't know on succi is a political leader a nobel peace prize winner who spent decades under house arrest because of the military. She's revered and also controversial. Figure so ben we can start this story in a lot of places what you like. Twenty seven two thousand fifteen nineteen sixty two nineteen forty eight but i think for now maybe we just go back to november of last year. That was when aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party trounced the military's proxy party the union solidarity and development party in these parliamentary elections. I think her party won. Like seventy or eighty percent of the vote in this threatened the military's control of the country which they had a lot of because of how your mars constitution is set up in so the military quickly declared that this election was fraudulent. There was a lot of chatter and concern and speculation about a potential coup. It's sort of increased ever since november when that election occurred I should know that election observers international observers don't believe there was fraud but this coup finally occurred over the weekend on the day that the parliament was supposed to convenient for its first session and not coincidentally Also means that mars top general ghosts from this lame duck figure who is gonna retire in june to a defacto dictator. So ben what. What else do you think people need to know about what happened and like despite you know all these concerns into predictions that had been building over time we surprised that the military ultimately went through in just seized power in a very classic old school military coup this weekend. Well i think first and foremost it's a tragedy for the people of myanmar. I think what people need to understand. Is that the competition between aung. San suu kyi in the military has never been resolved and it goes back. Many decades in the military's been in charge for most of the en marche history as an independent country on. She went back to the country and won a landslide democratic election. One thousand nine hundred and the milton validated and through in prison and put under house arrest is essentially and it wasn't until two thousand eleven that she was able to re enter politics and there was this moment in two thousand fifteen when her party. The ldp won a landslide election. But that didn't mean that she had the power she became what's called the state councillor because the constitution expressly prohibited her from becoming president. There was a provision in the constitution written into the constitution. That said if you had foreign born children you could not become president and was ridden with her in mind. The military under the constitution prescribed itself a twenty five percent bloc in the parliament which was enough to prevent them from allowing the constitution to be amended. So you can see what was going on here. The military was trying to wrest power right and and keep its economic interest by the way too because they're corrupt the enrich themselves all their power. All their money could be a risk if onkelinx and the nfl could reform the constitution and so since she won that election in two thousand fifteen her five-year term the five-year. Parliamentary term was very tense because she wanted to reform the constitution. The military obviously didn't want her to do that. You have but we talked about a lot. The ethnic cleansing of the hindu got a lot of attention where she seemed to not want to challenge the military in part. Because she didn't want what just happened to happen you know. She thought that she might be able to co op. Some of the military to make a deal with them to show them perhaps said she was in his threatening as they might have thought but this question was unresolved and she had a very negative relationship. But just a rivalry with this commander in chief. Minhang lung The two of them did not like each other did not get along. I met when i met with her. But when i was still government. She would complain about him that he he wanted to do something like this. She spoke about fears of a coup. So this has been lurking in the backdrop despite kind of the partial democratic opening. It's taken place in the

Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?

"United kicked off the year with an attempted coup and myanmar kicked off this month with a successful on me and mas military has seized power in a coup against the democratically elected government. There me and mars military moved in in myanmar's capital. The bridge to parliament is blocked by police. And the roads are lined with military and move the country's elected leader and her cabinet out somewhere behind the guns aung san suu. She is once more prisoner of the generals but even though the military swept a democratically elected leader out of power this isn't quite a textbook takeover even before this hour coup happened. The military was really with sharing their power with a civilian government. Dr van trend study social movements in myanmar. So we asked him to explain. Why a military that already had plenty of power in myanmar decided to take all during the general election that happens in november. Two thousand twenty. The result was a landslide for the ruling party of that time. Which was the national league of democracy. The first official results trickling men from mass general elections giving three parliamentary seats to suit. She's national league for democracy even before the final count is in the potty says it's confident of a landslide win however the military claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and that there were millions of ballots that were missing and they requested the Government led by the national league of democracy an auditor to investigate these claims of voter fraud. And what's also important to note is that there is the national local election observers who've seen the entire process from the voter lists to the election and they said that the election in street and fifth they have had talks and meetings with that the governments in the preceding days however those talks and discussions have not led to any kind of agreements between the two sides and since they failed to reach an any kind of agreement is very likely that there was a reason why they have decided to go forward with the crew right before a new parliament. We're supposed to convene. How did this get to the point of a coup. I mean i. I know the military in myanmar had been a strong presence already. Even you know throughout the leadership of unsung cheap but were there warnings there might be a coup so the relationship between the energy party and the military has always been a complicated one back in two thousand ten when they decided to carry out a political liberalization. They didn't want to have all of the political power of the military to be stripped away. Even before voters cast. The result is ensured. Twenty five percent of saints will go to the military alliances with the current regime have been made to ensure political survival in more than forty percent of seats. The only content as a candidates linked to the current regime or does not regarded as a fridge with the and government since two thousand fifteen They have been trying to tread very delicately in terms of how they deal with the the the military they try not to confront with military on various policy issues including the rowing crisis fall.
