"A big old gap right here. Anybody can walk through. The district announced in June that rob elementary where the shooting took place would be permanently closed. The Biden administration says the new COVID-19 booster shots mark a major turning point in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, NPR's rob Stein tells us health officials are hoping the vaccinations will become more like annual flu shots. The new boosters are the first shots updated to match the strange of the coronavirus that are currently infecting most people, and unless a new variant emerges White House COVID-19 response coordinator as she's just as the new shots could be the last people need for a year. Barring any new variant curveballs for a large majority of Americans. We are moving to a point where a single annual COVID shot should provide a high degree of protection against serious illness all year. That's an important milestone. Millions of doses of the new boosters are becoming widely available for free this week. Some experts worry the new shots may not be as effective as hoped, but federal officials say they're confident the boosters will protect people better. Robb Stein and PR news. On Wall Street, stocks finished lower today, you're listening to NPR news. From WAB news in Atlanta, I'm Emil Moffat. It's 5 32. Advocates say a new report on climate change by the national association of evangelicals could help galvanize Georgia evangelicals doing environmental work. Emily Jones reports. The report makes a biblical case for addressing climate change, citing scripture that calls for stewardship of God's creation and care for the poor and oppressed. Cody norad leads Georgia interfaith power and light, which works with faith communities on climate action. He says evangelicals make up a large proportion of religious Georgians. So I think for them to take climate action seriously is one of the best ways that we can make significant progress on those issues in faith to me is especially in the south. This report doesn't have the kind of authority that a statement by the Pope would for Catholics, since the national association of evangelicals is not a central body, making decisions that churches follow. But leaders say it could still have an impact. Marcus Cole is with the evangelical environmental network and grace snellville church. It gives local pastors and lay people just regular evangelicals a permission structure to work within and say, I might not have considered that before, but now people I trust are talking about this. Some evangelicals in Georgia are already taking some climate action, like installing solar panels and increasing energy efficiency at their church. Cole hopes the report will push them to think bigger. But once you start seeing the savings of the money and get people comfortable with those type of actions, then you can expand out to policy that's local with county commissioners or mayors and then maybe you can start to raise the saliency of that value when it comes to voting. Surveys suggest evangelicals are less likely than other Christian denominations to think climate change is a serious issue, or that it's caused by humans. Coal and Nord hope, the biblical case in the new report can help change

She said there's two things that businesses really need to pay attention to. One is, are they really connected? Are they delivering on the experience that they're marketing in a consistent and sustainable way and secondly is do the leaders of the organization have the patience to understand that marketing takes time to generate the results that you're looking for.

"This was we're not letting aircraft apart and were requesting some aircraft land. Yeah, the former is pretty routine for a whole host of reasons, but the latter actually requesting are not requesting, but requiring that aircraft already in the air land, that probably hasn't happened since 9 11 on a wide scale? Yeah, at least on a scale this large. I mean, it was just very, very strange to hear. This kind of didn't pick up until the following morning when people started asking some questions. And the FAA was kind of quiet about it. I guess at first and didn't really say much of anything and they finally issued a statement that said nothing. We have policies and procedures in place for these things and we're reviewing these policies and procedures. Context here is that at roughly the same time as the FAA put this ground stop into place. The North Koreans had launched a missile projectile of some kind. And about the same time the FAA issued this kind of stuff. Norad says we didn't tell anybody to do anything. We didn't say that this should happen. So the FAA did this kind of on its own. Unclear, still why the FAA felt this was necessary, whether this was some sort of accidental issuance of an emergency ground stop, whether it was being very proactive, I guess, or I think one person described it as hyper vigilance or hyper cautiousness. In any case, a very interesting situation and one that left a lot of us scratching our heads. So if you're listening and have any idea what precipitated this or what's going on or have any information here, podcast at FR two four dot com, we would love to know what you know if you know something. Yeah, a lot of people passing off speculation and guesses as fact. Yes, these two events did happen at approximately the same ish time, but there is, as far as I know, no official linkage of one event with the other. So people really need to stop saying that that was an absolute fact that that one thing caused the other. If anything I would have expected the FAA to do this kind of thing in Hawaii, which makes more sense than the entire West Coast. I don't know if I haven't heard of anything like this happening in Hawaii at the same time. So it just strikes me as quite odd, but we talked about this earlier before we were recording that we are reviewing the process around this. Kind of does make it seem like somebody hit the wrong button. Yeah, that was part of the FAA statement. They're reviewing the process about what happened. So my working theory is that somebody was being overly cautious or perhaps not on purpose because it's the whole thing lasted 15 minutes. It was basically over before it started. And I think the aircraft that were required to win. Were very few. So that's something to keep in mind as well. And there were apologies issued for the inconvenience to flight traffic. Let's move on to something that the chances of happening are low. Infinitesimally small that I can not believe it happened. And aircraft departing a California airport. Took off crashed, came to rest on a railroad crossing. The police are called, they arrive a train is coming. They pull the pilot out of the aircraft seconds before the train collides with the aircraft smashing it into tiny pieces. Tiny tiny pieces. What? I mean, especially it being in the LA area, like there are not many high speed trains, maybe not high speed, but trains moving at significant speed in LA. For these events to align where a plane would crash on a railroad crossing and a passenger train moving at a high rate of speed would hit that plane is just astronomically unlikely to happen, but it happened. It happened and the pilot was injured in the crash, but was pulled to safety before the train hit the airplane. We haven't received any updates on his condition other than that he was taken to the hospital and is expected to eventually recover. But I mean, just, wow, in you brought up a good point the other day about the fact that the train, it should have been relatively simple to stop the train. Well, yeah, the first responders had enough time to set up yellow caution tape and cordon off the area. Something in the link of actions failed here. Every railroad car in the U.S. has a little blue placard on it that says, here's where you are, here's the crossing ID. Here's a phone number to call if there's an obstruction, either somebody did not call that number to inform metro links or BNSF or whoever operates whoever actually owns the rail on this crossing to stop rail traffic or maybe they did make that call and dispatch just couldn't get that information to the train in time. But if you have enough time to set up auction tape that's probably enough time to make that phone call. Yeah, I mean, there were a lot of people standing around. You know, lots of police officers, people filming, you know, the stop to see what was going on. So yeah, I thought it was really interesting. And also, I forget who brought this up on Twitter, but you would think that given the fact that the airport and the train tracks pretty much run next to each other. The tower at the airport would.

Oregon Dad Under Fire for 'Let's Go Brandon' Christmas Call with Joe Biden

"Meet upon its also spent much of the Christmas weekend, berating a father who yelled let's go Brandon when he was on the phone with president Joe Biden on Christmas Eve now. This also is part of the norad Santa tracker. Where the president and in this case First Lady Jill Biden took part in the Santa tracker with the norad. And the president will take selected phone calls. And we'll talk with young children around the country. Talking with them about the status of Santa, where Santa is. In this particular phone conversation, though, towards the end of the conversation, this father said let's go Brandon. Well, evidently, Joe Biden didn't too much care. Care whether he said it or not, he kind of laughed it off. But the left and the media have had a fill day with this. Now, we all know what the phrase let's go Brandon means. What it signifies and is not a compliment to Joe Biden. Main Street media journalist have, in some cases, called this phrase vulgar, vitriol, some have gone as far as to compare people who say, let's go Brandon with ISIS sympathizers. Jared smuck is the I'm sorry, smack, Jared smack, some might say that he's a smock. Jared smack is the father. He's a former Oregon police officer, and he said that he simply was just joking with the president. He said it in a joking manner. And again, Joe Biden didn't seem to take offense to it. Some outlets, however, appeared to disagree, for example, NBC. Their headline parent uses right-wing slur during Biden call with norad Santa tracker. ABC says father uses vulgar insult during holiday call with president Joe Biden. And the list goes

For example, MSNBC dot com their columnist Hayes Brown wants to cancel the norad Santa tracker. Have you heard about this story? And I'm sure if you're familiar with norad and how each Christmas Eve, it's for 60 years now. They have tracked Santa. I can remember it as a kid myself. You dial in in some cases, your local TV, radio. They kind of keep you up to date on where Santa is based on norad's tracker. Well, columnist Hayes Brown takes issue with this.

"To and may be drinking with squawk pod, and our team Joe kernan Becky quick and Andrew Ross Sorkin. Here's Becky. Sparkling wine experienced increased demand during the pandemic and now a shortage of bubbly in the global market could impact holiday celebrations. Ray isle is food and wine, executive wine editor. And he's been looking into the champagne shortage of 2021 for all of us. Ray, this sounds like such rich people problems, really. There's a shortage? There actually is a shortage of champagne. It's kind of crazy. It's like the worst thing to run out of during the holiday season. But it's not so short that you're not going to be able to find anything with bubbles. There's definitely there's bubbly wine out there. Some of it is champagne. Some of it is other options. But yeah, it's kind of crazy. You hear the news and you think, well, this can't ask you to be true. They can run out of champagne. But the combination of basically a lot of it goes back to COVID, and then it goes back to agriculture at the same time. The demand for champagne was very low at the start of COVID and what's odd is that the champagne regulatory body can control how much the farmer's harvest and champagne. And so they cut yields in the region. And the demand shot through the roof, which caught them a little shorthanded. And they'd also had a number of sounds like the oil problem. And in fact, you're going to see you actually basically prices rise for champagne. Champagne problems out there. I mean, we really mock things when we're calling them champagne problems. But in this situation, who's being affected the most? Where are they getting hit the hardest? Well, what you're finding, what I'm finding is that where you're seeing shortages are of the big names of the most popular brands like Google and things like that. Because that's what people are autopilot go for. And so those are out of stock like if I was looking on wine dot com, which is the biggest online retailer, certainly that I know of. The other day and they're out of they were out of yellow label. They were out of DOM perignon. Variety of things. But at the same time, I checked the stew Leonard's in Yonkers. And they had cleco yellow label. So it's very hit or miss. It's the same time. But then there are brands that are not the super well known and they're out there. And they make some wonderful wine. So you have to be a little adaptable if you're hunting for champagne this season. You know, I find it kind of funny that they're running out of champagne of all the things we've run out of. I mean, I couldn't find cream cheese this morning to make cream cheese cookies. But this is a big deal for places like restaurants, which have already been struggling so much. What do they do about this? They just moved to the backwoods too? I think they moved to the backups too. They pivot to a brand that's known to some degree, but maybe not the one that everybody goes for. And the nice thing about restaurants is that you actually have some coming to the table who can say, by the way, have you ever had this? And give an option. And similarly in retail, if you're in a wine store where there's a staff, they can tell you about the alternatives. And there are, there are alternatives champagne that are great sparkling wines that are out there. I mean, cava is one of them from Spain. And it's funny because I have in my hand. I'm going to show you because this is the news you can use segment. The guys were just laughing at me because I tried to open this in the break and I spilled it everywhere. I've never opened champagne before. But this is the cover. And it's a really pretty bottle. From Spain. And actually, historically, kava got its first boom in popularity during World War I when there was no champagne available because the French were at war. So there's a historical precedent for this. But I love this, you know, so your view does is a great brand. A Magnum of this one, which is a double sized bottle is 60 bucks, which is for a party. It's not bad if anybody's having a party this year. And it's got that I can confirm that about the coal. Yeah, my wife wanted to give someone a gift and that's a go to brand. You know what it goes back all the way back to you remember the Germans wore gray at you wore blue, I remember, we'll always have Paris. I mean, that was the champagne that bogey opened during absolutely. During Casablanca was and my wife just thought it was a couple it was a place where she was. And she's like, do you believe that? I couldn't get any vocal. I told her, just by some letter. Isn't it pretty comparable if you get a moment and it's comparable and in fact it's owned by the same company, LVMH bones. Is that around? It's a little tricky to find right now. Is it really? Yeah. You can find some of those smaller brands like Paul roger, like Alfred gratian, which we have here today. This is a model. How about the inverse the DOM versus cristal controversy? What's the difference? I can't tell. I have some here, too. And in the morning, if mixed with orange juice, you only need one sip to feel it. What do you have? What's the difference between DOM or crystal better? I don't understand. That is a debate that's been going on for decades. And they're both very high. They're what's called tetra champagne, it's the top of the cube. And cristal is a little more dominant. Champagne typically is a blend of Chardonnay Pinot Noir, Peter McGee. Cristal leans towards Chardonnay dumb. It's a little less so crystal's a little leaner is a little richer. But they're both spectacular champagnes. If you can find them right now. And they actually benefit from aging too that's what people don't realize champagne can be aged in a seller. I did. I didn't know how glad I was going to be you were on. And now I just thought of something else. So Becky, and Andrew, I have migrated. People used to make fun of me because I would bring Chardonnay. Now I do like read more. If you had a Faust, I have had found. It's amazing. It's not everything. It's like, what's that? What are you talking about? A rose for manly men. I think is a good thing. I think this is where you're bringing your croissant. It's great. I think it's great. It's a great breakfast. And then, yeah, and the other thing is also is great. People love rose. Rose champagnes have a little more body in a little more power to them. They can be great as a dinnertime wine. People think of champagne as a celebration toast wine but they're actually terrific with main course, roast chicken and rosa champagne's fantastic. Afghan is one of these producers that's a little bit under the radar, so they haven't sold out one more. So you can. And then yeah. And then go ahead. And then I have one more because I'm really going to impress you with this last one because I've only had it twice, but I think it might really be if you had verite la jois had tried that. I have had veritas. You see what I'm saying? I don't often buy it myself. No. The 400 bucks a bottle. Someone had someone had.

"And lily drugs, but they're building it back up. Guys, Meg, we were talking a little bit earlier about this idea of whether you could get the defense production act in place, and that could actually create a lot more volume of the Pfizer drug. As you just said, 10 million doses by the summer, 10 million doses by the summer, maybe too late. When we talk to Scott golly about this, he seems to suggest there was still a 6 month lag in terms of even if you started right now. It would take 6 months to really be able to ramp properly. The question is, is if you start now, it may be that by the time of the summer, you could get to a 100 million if you really went to it. Is there a resistance by Pfizer to do that? Well, certainly companies never like when the defense production act is used to force them to do something. Sometimes it could be beneficial to them because it puts them in the front of the line for materials and supplies. We saw that with the vaccines it was helpful to the companies if they were on that end, but it also has knocked down effects. Other drugs get pushed to the side. So it's something that people in the industry hope is used very precisely. In terms of the supply, though, Pfizer did increase its full year forecast for supply for the world to a 120 million courses yesterday up from 80 million. The U.S. is only order 10 million at this point. Could we see them increase that and when could more get delivered is a big question, but Doctor Fauci did talk yesterday about how complicated this drug is to manufacture and that it does have that time of 6 to 8 months for the active ingredient. And then finally there's an incentive question, which you just raised, which is those that are unvaccinated are almost I don't want to say have a greater incentive, but in some ways they will probably have access to this drug before those who are vaccinated. It's sort of the anti incentive to get vaccinated. I don't know if you read yesterday Chapman online, had made this statement that got a lot of people very upset, which was that he said, basically, that unvaccinated people should not be taken care of. I don't think anybody agrees with that, but how do you change that incentive structure in this case? Yeah, it's a real problem. It's an ethical question, but something we saw with the antibody drugs when they were in short supply too. If you got a prioritize the highest risk folks, that's folks who don't have the vaccine, so we'll have to see how that plays out in these treatment guidelines. Complicated stuff. Meg, thank you. Appreciate it. We have something of a holiday tradition on squawk box, checking in annually with the top secret military mission at norad, the North American aerospace defense command. Which fields thousands of tips and questions from the public about a certain flying object every December 24th. Santa was spotted over Petersen Air Force Base, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Let's get back to Becky. The recent boom in space tourism has the skies more crowded than ever, but that isn't deterring our next guest and her team from their mission of tracking Santa's voyage around the world on Christmas Eve. Let's welcome this morning, U.S. Air Force captain, sable Brown, who is a public affairs officer at the North American aerospace defense command, which is otherwise known as norad. She's also a member of the norad track Santa team. This, by the way, is the 66th year that norad is going to be tracking Santa's global journey and captain, thank you for being with us today. I would imagine that this job has gotten a lot more difficult over those 66 years because there's so much more stuff in the air, including all of the stuff that's in space right now. How are you guys doing this? How are you handling it? Well, thank you for having me, Becky, and yes, the job of watching the United States and Canada's skies is a little bit tougher, but we're able to keep up with it by working with our partners and allies around the world and in regards to tracking Santa. It takes a lot of contributors and a lot of volunteers to get that job done and they are happy to do it every year. So how do you guys do this? Let's track through all the technology that you have to actually watch Santa as he goes around the globe because this is something little kids have been so curious about for forever. Right. And when we get children that call in the op center, we give them all the answers about how norad tracks Santa every year. And it starts when he makes his first movements out of the North Pole. The radar in the northern Canadian and northern Alaskan Arctic area track him with those north warning satellites. And then as he moves west across the international date line, are satellites can watch the infrared signature from Rudolph's red nose as he flies around the world. And when he makes it back to Canada and the United States are fighter escort pilots, make sure to give him a wave and safely escorted him through North American airspace and then he heads back home to the North Pole to get ready for next year. I know we can all follow along by watching on the Internet on the website. How many people actually call into the limestone? Back in 2019, we had over a 150,000 calls. The phone never stops ringing. What do kids say when they call in? And how did this whole thing start by the way? Well, it started back in 1955 when there was a misprinted ad for a department store saying that children can call Santa at a certain phone number. But the misprint actually led to the conad back then it was continental air defense command. The call center there, a red phone that colonel Harry shop famously picked up and he went along with the call and so did the rest of his crew all night and that's how the tradition of norad tracks Santa got started. Well, it's a great tradition and we appreciate you all keeping it up this year. We'll be watching and we know you all will too as Santa takes off on Christmas Eve. Captain Brown, thank you so much for joining us. And good luck to you and your staff with handling all these calls this year. Thank you. And happy holidays and hope to see you tracking Santa with us. Merry Christmas, we will be. I haven't seen Christmas vacation, the movie this year. That's an annual app might be my favorite. I think, just because of cousin Eddie because of Randy Quaid, but you remember where they're at the table and Clark griswold says you know sand has been spotted coming across the border there. And he looks at him and just goes, are you serious, Clark? Exactly. But there's about a hundred lines from that movie that I use, I think of some of the other ones I've been using. Oh, yeah.

"Part of how we fight this pandemic. In terms of the nearly quarter $1 billion that's going out the door to the ports, how quickly is that money going to be spent, and when we think about the inflationary aspects of some of the supply chain issues we're seeing, what kind of impact do you think that can have in what kind of time frame? So it really varies based on what's going on in an individual port. But what I'll tell you is often ports can move very quickly. For example, last week I was in Savannah, George R fourth, busiest container port, and by many measures are most significant for things like agricultural exports. They got creative and created what are best described as pop up inland container yards. So the idea here is, you know, there's just no more space at the port itself with these containers piling up. So you get them out to a different site. Sometimes more than a hundred miles inland and you sort them out there. You move them on to rail and truck chassis there. It's one of those ideas. It sounds very simple, like a child would think of, but actually incredibly dynamic and complex to pull off. They were able to do it in a matter of months after conversations with the supply chain task force and the work that we were trying to drive out of the administration to do that kind of problem solving. And they were able to use repurposed federal dollars to do it. So we're about quick solutions where we can find them. But let's be clear, the point of this bill is to get America ready for the decade and decades ahead and create jobs across the decade and decades ahead. And we're not going to rush things at the expense of doing them right. We're going to look at short term and long term side by side every day. And then finally, mister secretary, the build back better plan, which seems to have obviously been put on pause, at least for now, without Joe Manchin's support, if you were to look into a crystal ball for early 22, what parts of it do you think actually have a chance of getting across the finish line? Do you think it does? Yeah, I've been rooting around the office of the secretary ever since I moved into it looking for that crystal ball. And maybe it's in a closet somewhere, but I still can't find it. What I know is this. The elements of that package are both needed and popular. And I think that's especially true. When it comes to having a stronger economy, you saw how the rating agencies and a lot of the banks reduced their expectations for our economic growth, when there was news of this setback in terms of the progress of the bill. Because the economy is telling us, the economy itself in its way is telling us that this bill is good for the economy. You add to that the fact that with families seeing pressure on prices, this could lower the cost of insulin, the lower the cost of prescription drugs lower the cost of housing and child care. One thing I'm excited about, of course, is a chance to lower the cost of electric vehicles. I mean, you look at the pickup truck, the president was driving when he visited the plant. Mister secretary, we got to run in a second, but were you surprised the stock market? Since that announcement has not fallen dramatically. To the extent that the market is speaking and I know that the market is distinct from the real economy. Let's stipulate that. But oftentimes, these things do have an impact on the market, and the market in a almost maybe perverse way to the way you might think about it has responded. I want to stop short talking about crystal balls of imputing things to the market. But I guess if I were going to do that, I would say it's a sign that the economy and the market share my optimism. They were actually going to get this done in the new year and that that'll be good for the economy and for families. Mister secretary, want to wish you a happy holidays and we look forward to seeing you in the new year crystal ball or not. Thanks.

Get tips straight from Kramer, the only club with exclusive trading leads for early access symmetry email at CNBC dot com slash investing club. This is squawk pod from CNBC. Here's Joe kernan. New studies suggest a lower hospitalization risk than other variants. Meanwhile, the FDA has cleared Pfizer's COVID treatment pill, Meg Terrell joins us now with more on the COVID. Hey, Joe. So of course, it's good news. Those studies from both South Africa and Scotland showed a much lower hospitalization rate with omicron compared with other variants, but Doctor Fauci warned yesterday that the sheer number of people who are getting this variant could sort of obviate that effect. I would point out that even if you have a diminution in severity, if you have a much larger number of individual cases, the fact that you have so many more cases might actually obviate the effect of it being less severe. And we got some good news yesterday in the Pfizer pill that was cleared by the FDA. It was cleared for high risk adults and kids 12 and older who weigh at least 88 pounds who have a high risk factor for severe COVID. This is a drug that has to be taken within 5 days of symptoms and patients will take three pills twice a day for 5 days, the results showed it could reduce the risk of hospitalization or death by 89%. But supply is going to be limited at least initially. The White House saying yesterday 265,000 treatment courses expected to the U.S. by the end of January, the full shipment of the order of 10 million courses expected by late summer, but because of this, we talked with a pharmacist yesterday, doctor Michael gano from the American society of health system pharmacists who pointed out prescribers are going to have to make tough decisions because this drug is going to be essentially in shortage about which patients are highest risk and should get it. Here's what he told us. What's really going to be again up to that prescriber discretion to look at the patient, their age, their body mass index, their comorbidities, and say, this person is highest priority versus this person who's not. And that may take the vaccination status into account. So, of course, that's a major question. Especially with oma cron being able to evade some of the protections of the vaccines, but we also know they do provide great protection against severe disease. Meanwhile, that is not the only drug in what The White House is calling its medicine cabinet. We are potentially expecting EUA for Merckx pill. And if that's cleared, that's going to be a lot more supply. 3 million courses in January. That one doesn't work quite as well, so Pfizer's would likely be preferred, but the supply is going to be an issue. Also, the AstraZeneca preventive antibody new data this morning confirming it holds up against uma cron. There will be 500,000 courses of that in January and the only treatment antibody drug from bearing GlaxoSmithKline, which holds up against this variant, 300,000 courses. So guys, some of that medicine cabinet got wiped out in the Regeneron.

"But not not ordinary people so by comparison do do know what the governments of the time. We're using like what kind of what the technology they using the time to you now. Well they were certainly using something stronger than fifty. Six bends right. The government had secure telephony at the time The student three that is secure telephone unit. Stu three was used for phone calls for military applications. If norad cheyenne mountain wanted to discuss a possible soviet missile attack with their chain of command. They will get on a ski three and talk on that right but those were you know not available for ordinary people so peach. Ep was a kind of poor. Man's strong encryption. And you know. It wasn't a telephony product. It was an email product so that was within reach of the average person. You know right. So would that well. During the development of peachy p it looked like the government was going to make a move toward outlawing it. There was some legislation that was proposed at the time that would encourage communication companies communication service providers to put back doors in their products and services. Right now that never became law. That was that was a proposed legislation. And when i saw that. I realized that i better hurry because You know what if it's not gonna be legal soon right so i decided that had this had to be free so that i could change the facts on the ground so that it would proliferate and become harder to stop so peach. Ep was released in june of nineteen ninety-one for free and it spread all over the internet really fast. The appetite for it was was strong pat. I want to get to the point but back. It's one of the other things. I recall from the time. Extra couple of things that trigger memories is at some point back then. The government put expert controls on encryption labeled ammunition right and they limited to forty bets. That's right yeah and the reason for that is because you have to go back to world war two and look at. How decisive cryptanalysis played. What role greenhouses played the network. We've all heard about the allies breaking the enigma machine. Germans had we also broke the japanese codes with the purple code in the pacific theater and in fact the battle of midway was decisively won by the americans. Even though the japanese had superior forces they didn't know that you know we had the element of surprise they thought they had the rise but we intercepted their communications and we knew where they were. And so we ambushed them and we won.

"Every time but like for the commercial airliner for any of it, whether it's the commercial jetliner or the small private planes that potentially could have been a target, you told you describe the tools that you had to bring down a plane. But if it's over Washington, D. C versus a more rural area. Did you give any thought into how you would have done that? Yeah, for for the larger aircraft again, it would simply be, um, taking off the tail. Which would be you know, I would essentially be a kamikaze and ran my aircraft into the tail of the of the aircraft. And you know, I gave some thought to you know what I what? I have time to eject, but So I would need to ensure that I mean, you only got one chance. I mean, you don't want to eject and then have missed, right. I mean, you got to be able to stick with it the whole way when we came back, and we continued to do the combat Air Patrol over D. C And there were plenty of other aircraft airborne that we did actually have to turn away. Um what we final? What we employed was we would thump them. I mean, we would we would fly in front of them and Put out a flare to flare is a well, I mean, you know, two flares, and so we pump out of flare out of the aircraft and basically turn those other aircraft away. And we would also get on the, uh, victor frequency. Um, it's called guard and then try to communicate with the aircraft that way too. 1.1 point five is a frequency that all pilots know about and it's sort of a it's called guard. It's universal. If you get in trouble, or you need help, or you don't you know you're not on the same frequency. If you go over to the guard frequency, then you should be able to talk to anybody. So we would also try to get them up on guard. So you were prepared to take your own life if necessary to bring down that plane. Of course. Let me ask you about flight 93 that crashed in Shanksville. When did you get worried about that? We got word. Um, not specifically that it had crashed, but that it was. I mean, it was no longer a threat. Probably. My recollection on this is relatively fuzzy, but maybe an hour or so, um, after we got an airborne and yet there was still a lot of uncertainty. There were reports of bombs going off at the State Department and other planes still in the air. So at that point, what were you doing, saying mission? Yeah, Well, it was it was the mission to protect, Um, the national capital region. So what had happened was then, uh, raising and Igor got their aim nines on the Jets, and then they took off and, um, as we were airborne Then, uh, marks as Seville and Dan Kane Assassin Region worked with the automaker traffic controllers, and this was actually true. It's just such a testament to the professionalism and abilities of the air traffic controllers there in Potomac, because their job is to keep airplanes separated and keep them on routes which are kind of like roads in the sky, you know and sequence them that certain minute miles or minutes apart from each other. And in Less than five minutes. They learned how to speak military fighter pilot to us as if they were combat controller because, um, assassin raising said. All right, so there's a navigation aid on Washington Reagan airfield. It's called the Vortec. So take this Vortec and there are if you can imagine 360 radios coming out of. It's one of the ways that we navigate. So you take those radios and they take a mileage off of that radio. So, for example, um, instead of calling the the Washington Reagan Vortec National, let's just call it Bullseye. All right, follow me on this. Just call it Bullseye. And then if there's somebody who might be on the 090 radio of that vortex, you called up Bull's eyes and 090. And if he was 30 Miles away, you call it 090 for 30. And then give me an altitude cut 090 35,000 ft and instantaneously. These guys got it. They're learning agility was phenomenal, and they adapted and changed. How they had been trained, operate, um, and sequencing airplanes and separating them to then learning how to bring airplanes together and affect and intercept and help give us a vector to go intercept somebody they might see. Or for example, if we had a radar, uh, hit on an entity out there, we would say, Hey, you know, declare contact Bullseye 030 for 25, 2000, ft and Potomac would then say, Oh, Well, that's a medevac flight. 13 63 he squawking 5 to 63. And he's off of Fredericksburg, and he's headed towards eastern or something like that. And so they were very quickly able to start speaking military speak and then because we were not talking the same language we could. We could then discern and differentiate between who was the first responder who was supposed to be airborne who was helping the good guys? And who were those unknowns out there? That Either. They were just sort of bumbling around because they didn't get the news. Um, and so they were sort of just unintentionally airborne because they didn't know any better and who was potentially a threat. So The first responders. We let them go on their way. And anyone else who would go check out When did you get back on the ground? About four hours later, Um NORAD had started their response through first Air Force, so folks down at Langley took off, but they were vectored. Over the Atlantic Ocean because they thought, well, there might be more flights coming inbound, um, over the Atlantic. So they went out over the Atlantic and they were high. They were above 18,000 ft, um and NORAD. It also scrambled some tankers. And so then they were takers. There were out over the Atlantic as well. So when, um those guys and came in they were called the Quince. When the quince then came in over D. C. A Knee ads, which is the Northeast air defense sector, which then can is part of NORAD. But knee adds, is that regional control. They call the Potomac. It said. Hey, we got the quince, Uh, airborne. We need to talk to the guys that you have already see. So then we began working with the quince. And then they had, um, uh, refueling capability over the Atlantic. And so then that's what enabled us to stay airborne for four hours. And we put the quince in a high cap to look to see if was there anyone because the higher you are the further out that you can see with your radar. So they were they had the high look, and they were specifically looking out over the Atlantic. And then we had basically an ex cat where I had the Northeast. Uh, leg. South to the northwest leg raising had the southwest leg and then Igor had the Southeast leg. And so then we were clearing. And, um, basically pushing down all the unknown aircraft and keeping them away from D. C. When you got back on the ground. Did you have a chance to watch the news? Where you being debriefed by your superiors? How did your afternoon unfold? Um, I landed. I went to the bathroom, sent an email to my parents to let them know that I was alive and then was rounded.

"What's first, Josh? Only hours after the bodies of 13 fallen American heroes were transferred to Dover Air Force Base and what the military calls a dignified transfer. Our nation's vice president suggested to the State Department that America hold a candlelight vigil to memorialize valiant Taliban and Isis freedom fighters. Who had sacrificed their lives defending their homeland. I don't know where to start with This is totally insulting to all our military personnel who fought the terrorists. These terrorists weren't fighting for anyone's freedom, including their own. Their culture is Islamist dictatorship. That statement is beyond stupid. She needs to be impeached. U. S. MILITARY BASES HOUSING Afghanistan evacuees are building their own city type leadership organizations to deal with sanitation, food and other challenges as the numbers of Afghans coming into the US grows. Air Force General Glenn Van Herck, who heads U. S Northern Command, said there were over 25,000 Afghan evacuees being housed at the bases. He acknowledged there have been problems at the bases as they grapple with language, cultural and other issues. He said that he's building eight small cities. We're going to have challenges, he said, the basis of designated in military officer as a mayor to be in charge of a couple dorms or housing units. And an Afghan counterpart who can communicate about any ongoing issues, he said. Northern Command has asked the D O D for additional linguists who are fluent and can speak with the Afghans. Our military will eventually be able to house as many as 50,000 Afghanistan. Evacuees at the eight bases around the country and it won't likely need to tap additional facilities, said General Van Herck, who is also the head of the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD. Afghans at the bases are divided with single males and single females in separate housing and families walled off in their own sections, where possible to provide privacy. This seems to be a very valid way to treat these people since we don't seem to be doing a very good job in ensuring that these Afghans are really in the group that we promised to bring here. There are likely some active terrorists in the group. Dealing with them will be a challenge. In the final days of the withdrawal, the US balanced loading or destroying equipment with the need to evacuate people out of Afghanistan. Some of the equipment was taken out on flights demilitarized at the airport or destroyed in controlled blasts. A U. S official confirmed to CBS News last week that our military was conducting controlled explosions of ammunition at the airport to lighten the airlift load before departing. The pieces that were left behind at the airport and demilitarized were either too big, like the M raps, which can weigh 14 tons or were old pieces of equipment belonging to the now toppled Afghan air force that were largely defunct, anyway. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said. Quote they can't operate them. We made sure to demilitarize to make unusable all the gear that is at the airport. The only thing we left operable are a couple of fire trucks and forklifts so that the airport can remain more operational going forward, end quote. There is still equipment outside the airport that the Taliban took control of when it overran the Afghan forces in the lead up to the fall of Kabul on August 15th. Kirby said. Our military does not have an exact inventory of the equipment. The Taliban now has Our military and coalition partners evacuated over 123,000 civilians and what was the largest non combatant evacuation in our military's history? The operation ended one minute before the deadline of August 31st on the East Coast. The mission ended without completing the evacuation of U. S citizens and many vulnerable Afghans. There's a lot of heartbreak associated with this departure. We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out. All told the Pentagon left behind tens of billions of dollars worth of equipment given to Afghan security forces, the U. S government spent $83 billion to train and equip the Afghan army, according to the special inspector general for Afghanistan, reconstruction. The Pentagon and White House had maintained that Afghan army ranks totaled 300,000 soldiers, but in reality, there were far fewer. So our government decided to abandon all this equipment and many Americans in Afghan allies just to run away by a fixed date. Why didn't we have changed the date? Why didn't we start taking things out? Months or years ago? You know, like the Russians did when they pulled out a couple of decades ago, We left a lot of working equipment. There we look like and are total losers. This is a total disaster by every standard. Oh, and I've spoken to some of the people still actually getting our people out their biggest problem. Our State Department. And that's the news. As Americans is our responsibility to ensure that our nation is well run and on the right path.

Assume call with CNN talking about the last election, but he's on another zoom call with I'm not a not 100% sure. But, uh, hey, kind of forgets where he is. It kind of gets out cameras work on a computer and he ends up tilting one of the cameras down. And it turns out that that Jeffrey Toobin Was Hmm. Not wearing Pants. And Jeffrey Toobin, You know he's on the zoom call. He was on another zoom call. But the first zoom called talking about the election was aware of what was going on on the second team calling to the camera got panned down, And then they saw the Jeffrey Toobin was Um He was. How does one say zooming himself? Hey, crazy. What else would I say? The best I could do under the circumstances. Tony Katz, Tony Cats today. So good to be with you. Yes, he was zooming himself. And New York magazine. New Yorker magazine has come out to say that we finished our investigation and he's fired. And he put out a tweet saying I got fired after 27 years. Love the magazine. I love the people maybe a little too much and And that's not have a nice day. I'm out. But he still has a job at CNN. My question, of course, is How How does he still have a job? I mean it if I did that. I can't imagine I would have a job now. Here's what's really weird, Ari. Let's say you did that. Okay, So here's where I'm Here is my oddness, I guess. That someone is that Foolhardy. Is the fireable offenses that somebody was doing? That isn't so. So Here's Here's the difference When this all happened, he said was I thought I had logged off Zoom. I didn't realize you were still on. Well, that's the firing a fence because you don't think that you're being recorded every second your computer's open. I am the guy who has tape. On my cameras. If you look at my I have two laptops. I have three screens, two laptops, and then I've got extra cameras, right? I'm doing Newsmax. I've got the camera for Fox. I've got a whole set up here. It's kind of made and by the way that we're adding another TV on there's another whole computer system coming right? We are. We are like command center. Here we are. We're the NORAD of the Midwest. We're ready. We're ready to launch the missiles do the whole thing. Of course, I tape over the cameras on my computers on my laptops. I don't trust them. Don't trust anything or anyone anywhere. What are you crazy? Not in the slightest And that you thought that, um you did it, And that's enough. You had that much faith in the in the usability of technology. You thought that was okay?

'Avatar 3' is nearly done filming

"So. You have Avatar here, and if anybody remembers because you're like Oh yeah, he's still making it. Very much. So James, Cameron. Right now he? Says that New Zealand has been able to get a handle. On Kobe nineteen so well that now he's resuming. Finishing Avatar three. Which is ninety five percent done and Avatar to is. One, hundred percent done. And you can read the headliner here from deadline. James Cameron says ever to filming is one hundred percent complete avatar three, ninety, five, percent complete praises New Zealand for Kobe response you probably saying, yeah, whatever man that's what they say. You know they always important as we see in never works out that way I don't believe him. Well, if you don't believe they headline right there maybe not only you'll feel better if you hear from the man himself James Cameron. But also. From the man who made James Cameron the man of versa. Honest wasn't Nigger Aka the terminator. They had a little discussion about this over of zoom call and. James Cameras steams he can't tell you details, but he seems a very confident that New Zealand. They know what they're doing over there, which allows him to finish his movie. Now before I go all the House, go movie question if you don't mind. Okay. All right. Mental. Kind of interview I just is anything I. Know you're in the middle of shooting Aba I know you've to get up to the individual because of the time changing into sealant the NORAD stop. Dummy sanding newsworthy at that you should know from administer movie coming out in the theaters in what's going on. I. Love Kobe, hit us like it hit everybody it is hard. We lost about four and a half months of production as a result of that we've rolled around one more full year for release in December of twenty two that's been that's been announced already. Now that doesn't mean that I have an extra year to finish the film because the day we deliver Avatar to will start working on finishing avatar three. So where we are right now down in New Zealand shooting, we're shooting the remainder of the live action. We've got about ten percent left to go where one hundred percent complete on Avatar to you know just gotTa stop here real quick and just say I'm looking at. autosport house and it looks adorable. Core I'm looking at this big as Mary here in the back. He's got these little teacups look China look you know little plates and little animals back there. He looks like the this House looks like the House of the old woman that Babysat the kids in the neighborhood. Multitudes man you think he's just a strong man he's sophisticated as hook it really see him going to like antique shows and buying China sooner having tea parties with his wife was up and. I. You know I. Mean this funny. He does this big as guy that got this sense of the Shelf Baker. I like the meanwhile we're James Cameron living. That's my question. It seems very desolate like obviously he's on. His home or whatever. But you think you would spruce that thing up. It looks like a fucking like not a motel, but there's nothing on the walls man got the. Flour barely staying alive. Looks like he's at the W.. Two is about underwater and he's not watering those goddamn plants. Not at all, but he loves blue got a big. Blue Door? A Little. That was the way I can actually know if it was at James Cameron Movie, the Terminator Robert Patrick shows up in terminator two and that Shit immediately goes blue true lies shot in that blue tent for the entire movie. He's got a distinct style say that I believe he actually had a cat spray painted blue. Around the house inspiration, it's a genius I can do this. It's inspiration. You'll get it in twelve years whatever want to give me a couple of years actually kept talking. To resume that conversation right here we're short of ninety, five percent complete on on. The painting. That's a door God damnit. We're just we're very lucky in that. We chose this as our production site years ago we made the first film here in New Zealand and it turns out to be one of the its its ranking to the first or second best country in the world for its Kobe. Response. Germany's in the number one spot sometimes New Zealand's in the number one spot. So now all I do is sit back. And wait for the rest of the world to get their shit together.

Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News

"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice

SpaceX Launches 60 Starlink Satellites

"Once tonight in Florida a couple hours from now another space rock a lot of satellites WBZ's Ben Parker spoke with the CBS is Peter king about the first space launch of the year this was the late on Friday but they're going to try again tonight looks like the weather will cooperate for this SpaceX launch we have a ninety percent chance of favorable weather tonight at nine nineteen which is the optimum launch window it should be a really nice clear night that means those most out of the southeast have a good chance of seeing a spectacular display this is a space sex ed and then the company here with the falcon nine rockets in all of these these these satellites that are up in space like a lot of them up there put more up well they really do and and this is part of the this launch is part of their star link satellite internet system now they've already got a hundred twenty satellites up there so far sixty the more experimental sixty of them are operational the next sixty will go up tonight their operational but eventually we're talking about somewhere in the neighborhood of twelve thousand satellites in the constellation yeah this is to provide internet service to a lot of areas that don't have kids activity at a relatively low cost this service is not online yet but is expected to be a little bit later on this year but twelve thousand satellites that's an awful lot of amid SpaceX is talking about so for the neighborhood of fifteen losses this year for that project alone is anybody worried about a traffic jam in space with all those satellites eventually of orbiting I think you always have to be worried about a traffic jam in space the really good news is that the Air Force and NORAD keep track of that but that said of course you know more traffic up there means more possible space junk and that's the that's the problem keeps growing and growing and there is another concern a strong numbers are concerned that with all of the satellites up there and the old the satellites become the reflective properties of those satellites and sending light back down toward earth could make it tough for astronomers to do their job to scan the heavens so you know if there is that is well you know we've become so dependent on things that use satellites that I guess we're kind of we being the consumer are kind of responsible for all this if we didn't have so many gadgets and do dads and all the stuff that we need for with satellite communications maybe we'll need as many satellites well some would call it progress some would call it pollution and there are a lot of people who are on the fence one big SpaceX's doing tried mitigate this the terms of the light pollution if you will if they tried paving one of these satellites with a lower reflective coating see if that helps if it does the likely use that our future satellites to at least keep the astronomers happy and SpaceX's president not a lot much but when Shotwell quoted as saying lord astronomy is one of the things that get kids interested in space we don't want to screw that up I I one of the things that interest me Peter is they're launching like sixty satellites at a time if it wasn't in the old days we just sent up a satellite yes yes but you know what satellites get smaller more compact and lighter and it's not about volume as much as it as it is about weight it cost X. amount of dollars to send each pounded to space and if you can get more bang for the Buck you go for it and this is not by any means the first multiple satellite loss this video and on for years but again at the technology gets better the satellite so except for the huge defense satellite communications satellites a lot of the other satellites are getting smaller and smaller and smaller some the size of a shoebox of course were dealing with with launches of something that we you know we we didn't have the in the past and that's rockets that gotta come back down and the land here and we can use them again yeah reusability is a big part of the space X. model the more rocket stages they can land safely on the barge and re use the less money they have spent on building new ones the less money they have to charge their customers what else is a new in the world of space which would be looking for in the new decade we are awaiting another test of SpaceX's crew dragon spacecraft that spacecraft that would take astronauts to the international space station and other low earth orbit destinations or missions the in flight abort test that is to test the rocket system of the parachute should something ever goes wrong during a launch that even flight abort test is scheduled for this Saturday the eleventh it is a major milestone if it passes the test that helps clear the way for the first human logic we don't have any schedule on that but we know that SpaceX would like to launch sometime during the first quarter of the year we've got a lot of watches covered at this year's SpaceX alone is hoping to watch thirty rockets about half of that starlink series at about half for other communication satellites of the crew dragon let's WBZ's Ben Parker speaking with C.

The military's famous Santa Tracker began with a wrong number

"One December your day in one thousand nine hundred fifty five. Colonel Harry Shop. A highly decorated air force commander was sitting at his desk in Colorado. When the phone rang this was not just any old phone call either? which shop quickly realized how because shop had two luke phones on his desk one black one red? The Red One was ringing at the height of the Cold War. If you are colonel shop a commander in the early iteration of NORAD. America's defensive warning shield against the tax. You don't want want the red phone to rig. It was wired directly to a four star general at the Pentagon in when it rang. Things got got real very real. Except this time Karl Barth into the phone but there was silence on the other end until finally a small voice said is this clause shall by all accounts. I was briefly confused in then fully annoyed. Is this a joke. He said wearing around at the wide eyed staff or any sign of a smile he let the caller having what did you think you're doing cetera. Et CETERA. He began but then the a techno military might of the United States was brought up short. By the sound of sniffles. Whoever was on the phone was crying and shop suddenly realized it really was a child who really was trying to reach cynical? The Colonel Pause considered and then responded. Ho Ho Ho. He said as his crew looked on astonished. Of course this is Santa Claus. He talked talk to the youngster for several minutes. Hearing his wishes for toys and treats assuring him he would be there on Christmas. Then the boy ask Santa to bring him something Nice for his mommy I will I will Santa Shop said in fact close to your mommy now. The boy put his mother on the phone and shop. Went Back to business crisply explaining to the woman. Just what facility. There call had reached but she also had an explanation. The woman asked shop to look at that day's local newspaper specifically at a seers at emblazoned with the big picture of Santa that inviting kids to call me on my private phone and I will talk to you personally anytime day or night. The number provided m. e. two dash six six eight one went went right to one of the most secure phones in the country. It was a Typo one. Digit was wrong. When Xiaopeng up the phone rang again he ordered his staff to answer each Santa Call while he got on the phone? The black one this time with eighteen not to set up a new link to Washington. That might have been the end of it but a few nights later shop as was his tradition took his family to have Christmas Eve. Dinner with his on-duty troops when they walked into the control center. He spotted acute drawing on a board showing a sleigh pulled by eight unregistered reindeer. Coming over the top of the world the exchange range that followed became stuff of both family and air force alleged. What's that the commanding officer asked? Just having a little fun colonel. They answered waiting for the blow up. Shop pondered the offense. The team waited then. He ordered someone to get the community community. Relations officer and soon shop was on the phone to a local radio station. Conrad as the early iteration of NORAD was called hauled seemed to have picked up on an unidentified but distinctly sleigh shaped object. The radio station aided up and an enduring tradition was born. This Christmas Eve will mark the sixty third straight year. THAT NORAD will publicly track. Santa's sleigh on its global grounds. Millions of kids around the world can watch online or even they're smart speaker about Santa's whereabouts else as for shop. He went on to even higher ranks in the Air Force. Retiring as a wing. Commander he died ED in two thousand nine at age ninety one he was buried with flyover. F Sixteen fighters under a gravestone. Connotes his service in World War Two Korea in Vietnam.

How did Canada and China end up here? How does it end?

The Big Story

12:27 min | 3 years ago

How did Canada and China end up here? How does it end?

"Fess is one of those stories that starts with a news event, the makes bold headline in Asia, and the US falling sharply on news, that top Chinese executive has been arrested in canon, while we see a mum long show. Appearing today in VC supreme court she since been released on ten million dollar bail, awaiting possible, extradition to the US move. She's about to fight from there. The narrative splits into stories about retaliation stories about political posturing trade, stories and business stories and technology stories most of these items are small enough that unless you're really paying attention. You might not notice them, but they are all part of the same big story and that story is still unfolding even when it's not dominating headless yesterday. The president signed an executive order effectively banning US telecom companies from using wall, way technology for five G. This is the next Canada updating its. Travel advisory for China, telling Canadians to exercise, a high degree of caution in China Canada's rocky relationship with China hit another bump today. Beijing has now blocked canola imports from a second Canadian producer Tara over alleged contamination by pests is it an show them? One day you look up your country is four months out from an important election and finds itself. Caught directly between two superpowers with no easy way. So what happens now how did Canada and China's relationship end up here? Can the liberals really soften their talk and deescalate tensions in the middle of an election? And if they do that, and Donald Trump doesn't like it. What happens then? I'm Jordan heath rulings? And this is a big story about a rock and hard place and us David Maas crop is one of our favorite. Geopolitical analysts is a political scientist, and he is the author of too dumb, for democracy. Let's start with the really basic simple stuff. How is Canada's relationship with China right now? It's pretty awful unless something changed in the last couple of hours. And I don't think it has it is that one of the lower point the being out in years, when I was doing my masters I became deeply interested in international relations and China and took a course on China studied, I are SETI, global international local economy. And so that was that's the baseline that I'm going from from my head. I doubt for a couple of years, I was expecting to China and I didn't. But then in the last year or so I doubt back in, especially the last six months, and there's been a notable decline since Canada arrested. Among one Joe on request of the Americans would like her extradited to the US where she's indicted on a couple of dozen or so charges. Of working with a Ron, which is under American sanctions. And that was really the sort of opening salvo in deteriorating deteriorating relationship between Kennedy and China and that sort of decline has been marked by obviously the arrest, but Dan, China, banning Canadian, canola imports arresting to Canadian nationals, Michael covert. Michael Foulon sentencing to Canadians to death on drug charges and Canada, considering banning while way for five technology which the Americans would very much like us to do. So there's you can see from bats quick rundown at the last several months half year or so a growing tension. But, but fundamental rift surrounding largely long-term geopolitical interests. Explain for me if you can how Weiwei is tied to the Chinese government, because I. Here in the west in the, the coverage that we get it almost seems like an arm of the government. And, and I don't understand that. So well, I don't think it is. I mean, I'm not a China expert. I'm a. A writer observer scientists democracy interested in this. And so something I track across several different types of reporting. So it's interesting to see how different countries report on it. How international media reports on it? But also have business media reports on that versus political media. And one of the things you see is that there is some doubt to the rich while as connected to the Chinese government. And as one observer point of there's no smoking gun. But the concern is that either now or at some point while technology could be used in at least one of two ways to undermine geopolitical interests, including economic interests in corporate interests. And one is through the Chinese government, requesting data from the company extra-territorially and a company to comply. So one is they show up. China's government says, look, this is the rules, give us the data and they had no choice. It's a little bit of Kim to the US Patriot Act. And if. You've got stuff. But that's that's a domestic thing. So if you're a Canadian that uses g mail on your stuff is stored on American servers, the government, the US government can access that stuff under the Patriot Act, right? This is one of the concerns with using American service in American technology. It's a bit like that. So it's not like this is just the China issue in their, their concerns with the United States from since as well. So that's one of the Chinese government will be able to request that information. And from what I've read that is generally probably true. The government asked for it while we would have to provide the other is that why would actually build back doors into the technology that would allow spies the Chinese stayed to directly access that tater through the back door? Now, China has a long history of corporate XP knowledge stealing ideas, stealing intellectual property. They're not the only ones, of course. I mean, a lot of America was built and stealing intellectual property. But that is part and parcel of the struggle, you mentioned America couple of times, I because we arrested while way CFO on their request and second. Because there may now be some pressure to not allow away on the five G network because of them. How is our relationship with the state's play into diplomacy with China, and what's Canada going to do if we're caught in the middle? I don't know. I would not want to be Christophe land right now because there isn't an immediate obvious good solution to this. If you're thinking, geopolitically, if you if you're worried about your relationship with the United States for all kinds of reason, the US has been in long-term decline. Then you have a problem if you specially if you wanna look around the world. Develop new alliances and new relationships and China's one of those, especially if you rely on China for things like canola exporting canola, which is significant for Canadian partners. On the other hand, you're dealing with Trump who's Curiel at the best of times. And you're trying to get the US MCA agreement, the US NCA ratified, which is increasingly difficult and unlikely in the current US congress, it might have to wait. So what do you do your bound to the US for other reasons to the border, the movement of goods and individuals? Whatever it was eighty percent or so of our trade, but also defense, right? I mean they're a defense arrangements, whether it's NORAD or NATO. And then on top of that, we're part of the five is intelligence community, and there are concerns that if, if those countries allow countries that are part of the fun is allow wobbly technology. They may not want to share intelligence with them for fear that it's compromise. So what do you do if you're Canada, I have no idea. You know, eve version, who's a scholar at UB a China scholar. I usually Pacific scholar thinks that the immediate move is you deescalate with China and to rebalance that relationship, the more, I think about the more I think he's onto something. But as a recently for the boat mail, we also have to think forward fifty to one hundred years, and they go, what kind of international order. We want to be part of building to ensure that we have a just and ideally democratic. World. Order governed by very careful norms. What country is due to one another into their own people? Well, how does China's global strategy play into what Canada's facing because you've used sort of outlined, some of their bigger strategies towards trade, and trying to lead that international order? So the Chinese belt and become sort of modestly obsessed with the Chinese and road initiative. Explain explain exactly what the belt in Rhode initiative is for those of us who are hearing about it for the first time. So it's several years old now, dates to give or take twenty thirteen and what it is, is in short oversupply a little bit on attempt to recreate the silk road. Through a massive roughly one trillion dollar US infrastructure and development program that will stretch across give or take between sixty and seventy countries and dozens of organizations, and this is a factory China launching a massive investment throughout the world. Now. Depending on how you see it. It's a bit of a rohrschack test for your perspective on China. You could be seen as a development project. It could be seen as a trap China's investing in these countries and that has them on the hook largely, like, by the way, developed countries have been doing around the world for years, in, for instance through IMF programs, but it's also potentially a projection military force, and building of allied ships, strategic partnerships while in the Americas in western Asia in Africa. It now has a growing military component as well to some extent, for instance, with Pakistan, who's building Chinese fighter jets, depending on how you see it. It's some combination of development program infrastructure program, military program and debt trout and big geopolitical play to help China direct the global order in the next in this. In the next century, if one of the options is to deescalate with China and ease the tensions kind of become become more of a part of what they're doing. Can the liberal government do that in an election year? I mean they've they've been standing tough so far. Can they turn around and deescalate this thing without losing face, what would what would the other parties have them do? I'm very curious to I mean Andrew shears line is that he wants to reset the relationship? I don't know what that means. What that would look like I don't know if this is a get tough on China plant, what you're possibly to get tough perspective is that China has been sort of bucking the international order for years, and they talk a lot about rights rules, but they don't follow them themselves. The liberals have been trying to for instance, negotiate some sort of settlement, obviously on canola, but also to try to secure the release of my covert space for China's been hesitant to take meetings, high level meetings and. And we don't have an ambassador in China, currently, and the Chinese investor is leaving at the end of the month. He's been quote unquote promoted to Paris. So now he hasn't exactly been, I think particularly easy to work with.
