"And so part of the reason that president trump has been able to pace a little taxes at least according to the Times is because his businesses have lost so much money they've lost more than a billion dollars and he. . Has, , used the carry forward provisions among other things to reduce his tax bill for years and years. . You know when you have business losses, , it's like you have like money in the tax bank that you can use to pay less taxes in the future. . Now, , originally back in nineteen eighteen when carry-forward I started if you lost money one year, , you could use that loss to reduce your taxes for next year but only for that one year and then a while later Congress said you know what you can carry over losses. For . two years then Congress extended it further to fifteen years and eventually congress said you can spread your losses out. . You can carry losses forward for as long as you want forever President Trump signed the bill that made that change into law in two thousand, , eighteen and Isaac says there are good reasons to have this provision in the tax code it can be helpful for struggling businesses. .

So it's useful but also <hes> but <hes> but depending on, , you know how clever you are about your investments and how you go about booking what counts as a loss. . There's lots of room to kind of gain with creative accounting. . It is it is wildly open to abuse. . So carry-forward is sometimes a reasonable useful thing and sometimes something that people and businesses abuse to pay less taxes than they should, , and there are people at the irs whose job it is to figure out for every tax return that uses this provision you know which is this reasonable or is this abuse but as it says, , the funding that pays for the IRS to enforce carry forward rules and the rest of the tax code, , it has been cut for years it's been. .

Except there's one congressional committee that specifically looks into the super-rich but only in some cases but but. . One of those cases use the case of president trump. . There was this one paragraph in the time story I mean there were a lot of paragraphs in the time story and a lot of it was interesting but there was one paragraph in particular that really I wanted to understand better. . So the paragraph was related to this seventy three million dollar tax refund that Donald Trump apparently got in two thousand and ten and that he and the government are still fighting over. . Okay. I'm . going to read this paragraph it says quote refunds require. . Blah. Blah . Blah in opinion of the Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation Blah Blah Blah and tax law requires the committee to weigh in on all refunds larger than two. . Million dollars to individuals. . So what this paragraph is saying is there is a committee in Congress that has to give an opinion every single time the irs is about to send some rich person, , a multimillion dollar tax refund as I read this and I thought like why you know what is going on you have questions. . So I called Dave Norton he's a corporate lawyer who used to work at this committee, , the Joint Committee on taxation, , and he told me this is not a normal kind of congressional committee. . You know it doesn't right laws. . It doesn't hold hearings where lawmakers ask questions that are really more like comments and the joint committee staff is. . A non-partisan expert staff of economists. . Lawyers. . Accountants. . So it's like it's like Congress's. . Team of tax nerds. . That is a good way to put it. . Exactly, , right mostly the nurse on this committee figure out what different changes to the tax code would mean for the government and for the economy, , you know how different potential tax tweaks would work. . But a few of them go into work everyday and review giant tax refunds that the IRS is about to send out it's it's interesting because it's so one by one right you don't think of Congress as doing. . Anything on like we'RE GONNA get every big tax refund that goes out in America. . But that is what they're doing here and I agree it is <hes>. . It is pretty unusual. . It might be unique in terms of something that the Congress would get involved with Congress got involved with this back in the nineteen twenties basically because they didn't trust the person who was overseeing the IRS, , the Treasury Secretary Andrew Melon. . Melon was one of the richest men in America. . Also, , one of the biggest tax payers in America had all these business interests that he held onto he was treasury secretary, , and so congress was like wait you're the boss of the IRS and you owe all these taxes and you have investments and all these businesses that the IRS is supposed to be taxing that seems very shady. . You know we want to make sure that you're not just having the irs and you and your pals massive tax refunds. . So what we congress are going to do is we're going to pass a law that requires this Joint Committee to review big refunds. . Congress basically said tax nerds keep an eye on these rich guys in the refunds, , and so here we are almost one hundred years later and the tax nerds. . They are still keeping an eye on these guys, , and that's why in two thousand eleven trump's refund made its way to this committee. . Apparently, , the committee reviews hundreds of these refunds a year. . So it's you know. . Sort of, , but there are a couple of things in this case in the case of Donald Trump's giant refund that are unusual. . One unusual thing is typically the committee reviews the refunds before they get sent out to tax payers make sense. . Yeah. . It would think you would think but there is this special corner of the law and it actually applies to sort of the twin Sarah of what you were talking about earlier in the show the twin of the <hes> carry forward provision right where you can carry forward losses. . The twin is Keri back. . Here's how Carrie backwards if you lose money in the year, , you're filing your taxes for now instead of carrying those losses forward as you do in carry forward, , you can look back to. . The past, , you can say, , look a few years ago. . I was making tons of money I was on the apprentice and I paid tons of taxes, , and so what I WANNA do is I want to carry my losses from the present back into the past and I want you to give me a refund for all of those taxes I paid a few years ago. . Right so that is what president trump in fact was doing in this case when he got this giant seventy-three, , million dollar refund and the special provision of the law that applies here is actually something they call a quickie refund and so innocent. . Cute little seventy-three, , million dollar tax refund and what happens with a quickie refund is the IRS. . Okay. . We will send you the refund before we've done a thorough evaluation of your claim and you have to promise that. . If we ultimately decide that your claim for this refund, , not you're going to give us back the money. . So that's what happened here. . That is thing number one that was unusual to quickey refined I seventy three million dollars. . Yes. . Okay. . So thing number two that is unusual is just how long it has taken to figure out whether the refund was legit. . You know whether the president in fact qualified for the refund under the law so Typically. . The Joint Committee Clears Clears Refund reviews. . In about three weeks maybe a little bit more than three weeks <hes> in a kind of standard run of the mill case they've says that some really complicated cases might take a few months to figure out but the president's case is still unresolved and it went to the committee nine years ago years they've says, , he never saw anything take anywhere near that long when he worked at the Committee I never saw years Adam okay. . So a case that went on for years would be very unusual in your experience. . That's fair. . Say yes and you know it makes sense that once Donald Trump becomes president trump the case would become exceptional and more complicated and take longer but this was already going on for years before that happened and so it's not entirely clear why it's taking so long. . So Okay we've been through <hes> what's going on with the president's case, , and also where does this weird committee review come from <hes>? ? The one last thing I wanted to ask Dave was does it even makes sense to have a special Congressional Committee Review You know individual tax refunds you sort of worked on both sides you you were describing working for clients whose refunds are held up by the committee you've worked on the committee holding up People's refunds as you study them. . Do you feel like it's useful? ? I do think just from a from a revenue perspective <hes> the taxpayer gets huge bang for the buck out of the C. T. Refund review process it costs almost nothing to run. . It's you know as I said, , just a few people and they can be counted upon to spot millions and millions and millions of dollars of potential mistakes. . The spotting thing. . Hey, , look this is this million here million there at this shouldn't be going out for this this this reason

"We talked about this in the pre debate special. The New York Times report on the president's taxes. This was inevitably going to come up tonight. The question was. How would President respond? Well, we got our answer. I paid millions of dollars in taxes millions of dollars of income tax and let me just tell you It was a story in one of the papers that I paid $38 Million.1 year I paid 27 million years. Actually, I went, you'll see it. As soon as it's finished, you'll see it. You know you want to do go to the board of elections. There's 118 page or so report. That says everything. I have every bank I have. I'm totally under leverage because the assets are extremely good. And we have a very we have built you a specific question. Which let me tell you that I understand all of that. I just don't know. Mr President. I'm asking you a question. Will you tell us how much you paid in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017 millions of dollars You paid millions of dollars of dollars? Not something millions of dollars and you'll get to see it and you'll get it. But let me love you. Chris, Let me just say something that it was the tax laws. I don't want to pay text before I came here. I was a private developer. I was a private business people like every other private person unless they're stupid. They go through the laws, and that's what it is. So there were some moments where either President Trump or former vice president Joe Biden were able to give a little bit more of an extensive answer, But for the most part This is what you heard What you need you the American people. It's about you. That's what we're talking about. All right, That's the end of the segment. We're moving on. Didn't take them. Vice President cannot be honest. It's a very important Tio. No thie. Answer to that question is no Ukraine, sir, With a billion dollars of God. You know what your way not prove You're doing it. You're gonna have true, gentlemen. I hate to raise my voice, but I think maybe I should not be different than the two of you. So here is the data point we're talking about maybe close toe. 80 minutes of the 90. Plus minutes of the debate was was that s O. That's really the clip that encapsulate SW What America witnessed tonight. Coming up in a moment, We'll get the pro trump perspective on the debate. Reaction from Jeffrey Lord, coming up here next on the 2020 vote, the first presidential debate on my heart radio. With the Varro banking.
What you need to know about Tesla's 'battery day'
"Over the last few months there has been information leaking out about Tesla establishing a new battery production line near the Fremont factory, and it is aptly code-named roadrunner not only does that hint speed, but there might also be. A reference there to roadrunner and Wylie coyote the looney tunes characters engaged in a perpetual game of Jason, in which Miley Coyote could never catch the roadrunner. Maybe legacy auto is the Wiley Coyote to Tesla's roadrunner. So one of the expectations for Battery Day is that Tesla unveils this roadrunner production line to demonstrate the potential throughput that can be accomplished with all. These advancements I believe Ilan made reference to this today as well as tussles other progress in manufacturing outside of batteries. When he tweeted quote speed running Victorio and real life dot dot dot, and quote if you're unfamiliar Factoria is a video game described themselves. By saying quote Factoria was a game in which you build and maintain factories you'll be mining resources researching. Technologies building infrastructure, automating production and fighting enemies and quote that you're sounds a lot like. TUSLA. So a lot of these are related but I believe manufacturing and energy density at the pack level to be the two most important things for battery day. But it doesn't just end there. There are few other topics that may be discussed at Battery Day the first. which has been heavily speculated on is the possibility of Tesla introducing a million mile battery. So first things first on that that means a million mile life cycle or another way to say, that would be the ability for the battery to recharge. Let's say three or four thousand times without having significant capacity degradation because of already done a full ten fifteen minute episode. On the Million Mile Battery I'M NOT GONNA go into as much detail on that here a link that episode but the Short version is that they're already batteries capable of producing that many cycles. It's just a matter as it always is with batteries of the trade offs are willing to make. For example, does that increase the life cycle lower energy density or? Increased cost, and if so maybe it's not worth the tradeoff in fact, Tesla already has batteries that are capable of doing a million miles. They just don't use them in their vehicles because of those trade offs rather they use them in their energy storage products. So we'll see what Tesla has to say about a million mile battery they have talked about wanting. To, get there with the whole powertrain and the past, which really makes a lot of sense when you bring in a Tommy because if a scenario exists where there is a full self-driving row taxi that vehicles going to be traveling a lot more than ten thousand or fifteen, thousand miles per year if the utilization is five times higher or ten times higher. Then to have a useful life of ten years twenty years, you're going to need a million mile powertrain including that million mile battery. It also makes a lot of sense for other utility vehicles such as the upcoming Tesla semi the other wildcard that could potentially add life cycles to the battery for a vehicle would be vehicle to grid technology. Again, we've talked about. Tesla hasn't been super bullish on that technology in the past. So it's relatively lower on my expectations list there certainly value to that feature, but there's also complexity in extracting that value. So we'll wait and see what Tesla has to say on life cycle and any additional features that could drive utilization of those battery packs higher next on the watch list is. Charging capability there's a lot of potential here. We've already seen Tesla over the years increase the supercharging rate from ninety kilowatts to one hundred, twenty kilowatts, two, hundred, and fifty all the way up to two hundred and fifty kilowatts at peak now, and at the cyber truck unveiling last November onscreen they shut a graphic that showed the charging capability of the cyber. At. Two hundred and fifty kilowatts plus you elon musk at that unveiling said quote it will be capable of more than two hundred and fifty kilowatts will reveal the actual number later and quote. So maybe battery day ends up being that later we know that just last week lucid, motors announced that the lucid air will have three hundred and fifty kilowatt capable charging Tesla's kinda competitive. So I'm not sure they're gonNA, sit around for too long being outmatched on that charging rate. If we can get a bit speculative for a moment, one of our listeners, Florian halen helped me out with this it appears that the V. Three superchargers should be capable. Of quite a bit more output than the hundred and fifty kilowatt. Max. That does vehicles can charge at today to get a full understanding of this, we have to start with the version two superchargers. If we look at the label on those chargers, we can see the voltage listed at four hundred and ten volts. They amperage listed at two hundred and seventy amps to get the power capacity. We just multiply the voltage by the amperage. So in this case that comes out to about one hundred and eleven kilowatts but what happens in reality is that vehicles on version two charges, one hundred and fifty kilowatts all the time. So the amperage here is. Actually understated the same thing appears to be happening with the V. Three superchargers as well on the label for those, we can see that the voltage is thousand and the amperage is four, hundred and twenty-five. So multiplying those together yet Max power capacity of four hundred and twenty five kilowatts. So that's already higher than the two hundred and fifty kilowatts. The vehicles can accept today leaving some room for upside and charging rate but back to the amperage, it appears that the amperage capacity is understated on the be three charges as well. We have a screen shot here of a model three charging at that Max two hundred and fifty kilowatt rate, but with. The voltage only at three hundred, sixty eight. So if we divide those two hundred and fifty thousand watts, two hundred and fifty kilowatts by three hundred, sixty eight that gives us six, hundred eighty amps, which is well above the four hundred twenty, five amps on the label right now, a model threes battery is limited to four hundred and four volts. So at six hundred and eighty amps that would mean a Max charging rate of two, hundred, seventy, five kilowatts instead of the two, hundred fifty, that is listed, but it's probably limited at two hundred and fifty kilowatts to avoid overheating if we consider a new battery though maybe some of those constraints can. Be removed and the V. Three superchargers seems capable of delivering quite a bit more power than that two hundred, fifty kilowatts. If we use the six hundred eighty amps here that we have already seen register out of a supercharged V three location and we multiply that by the maximum a thousand volts we could be looking at a power output of six hundred eighty kilowatts from three charter and potentially even higher based on whatever that true actual limit on ams it's. So none of this means that Tesla's going to suddenly unveil a battery that's capable of charging at seven hundred kilowatts just that the V. Three chargers do seem to be putting in. Place. The infrastructure for higher charging to come over time with a new cell likely being introduced. Maybe we will hear more about that at battery debt last couple of aspects that I've heard discussed the first mining Tesla has alluded to maybe getting into mining someday if they needed to that's not something that I expect here from Battery Day as should be cleared by this point in time I think they've got enough to go through without going down that figurative rabbit hole but I do expect. Yulon mosque to again plead with suppliers to ramp up supply especially for nickel next is a point on Tesla suppliers we know that tussle works with Panasonic LG. L. To source batteries from them. So the question has arisen of how those partnerships are going to work and evolve if Tesla is designing and manufacturing their own cell and I think this is answered by what we spoke to earlier with product differentiation Tesla is going to need all the batteries they can get their hands on it's going to take time to ramp up their own battery production. So not only can they not just convert all their products over to their own cells instantly even if they were to do that, they still probably need even more batteries so they're going to continue to partner with these other suppliers though suppliers give them viable. Products, which can help Tesla Grow capture revenue capture prophet regardless of their own endeavors and battery cells and production as far as tesla actually supplying these cells to others I definitely don't expect that not for a long long time if at all, and that's really for the same reason, Tesla is gonNA need these cells themselves supplying them to another oem just adds again that extra layer of cost because both sides need their margin that creates a more expensive and a product for the consumer, which is contradictory to tussles goal of accelerating the advent of sustainable energy. So as long as Tesla is battery constrained, which I expect to be for a long time. See them supplying their batteries to anybody else. All right. So after all of this, we finally come to the product. The last thing to maybe expect out of Battery Day could be the introduction of the plaid model s and Model X. potentially being the first products to utilize these new battery cells as Tesla works to ramp up that initial production it's been yearly quiet on the plaid. Powertrain Front for a while now, but the timing is about right and maybe we will finally again here's something about the new roadster.
"outmatch" Discussed on WEEI
"Do I wouldn't do that. Yeah, that was not. That was not a good effort. I thought that they were the rain the ball too much on first down. They didn't you know, utilize their receivers in the way that they should. And we're just out coaching outmatched by the room. I will say that I think that the Cowboys qualify as well. As a team with a lot of transition. Him in a weird shed in a weird off season in week one getting Brady. I think the colts and, um in the box in the Cowboys, and maybe a couple of teams really just fall into like The day it had another couple of weeks of all season training, and then a couple of games appreciation to get warmed up and to sort of be on the same page jacket here. I mean, Jack back in the morning, Trooper. Have a reasonable amount of reps ago. Attacking Michael Gaps a deal you know, I mean, we're the land is brand new that for three play there in you know what it is Not that, but But if you think about it like they're in this mess contact, the tight end didn't get high enough. It was kind of pushed down by by the defenders, and then that caused the land to run underneath the sticks. Be sure to be sure of the first down and then Jack's not the timing wasn't right with back of the throat. You sort of wonder all those factors. Do they come into play? Where, if that's a team that is running that same play, and we can Is, you know, Is it hiding clear enough space to see the lam get north of the states on his route? The decade the ball out faster because he knows to you and we trusted you. And I think that is a viable case. It may be that maybe maybe look at my party dude. You got to kick the ball time came to you like this early in the season with these guys on the same page. I mean, it's a little bit hindsight, but Yeah, I think Dallas should be a little bit panicked, but we'll probably be fine. Looking at division is awful. Will.

The Khun Sa Files
"At the end of January nineteen, eighty to the forty eight year old coon saw lost almost everything. In a matter of days, the empire he'd spent years building had fallen since his escape from house arrest in nineteen, seventy, six Kuhn saw had risen to become one of the most powerful and infamous drug lords in the world from his base in northern Thailand. He trafficked opium out of Burma refined it into heroin and sold it to organized crime outfits across. Southeast. Asia approximately seventy five percent of the world's heroin was coming out of the region. Much of it. Thanks to Kuhn saw, and he was able to do it all with the help of the Thai government and Sean State Freedom Fighters. But in the early nineteen eighties, his luck ran out at the behest of the United States his type benefactors turned on him. And on January Twenty First Nineteen eighty-two the time military descended upon his headquarters in the town of Bond Hint Tech faced with complete annihilation. GHUNSA had no choice but to flee back to Burma taking the remains of his private army with him. They left behind fifteen tons of weaponry and millions of dollars worth of heroin processing equipment as bad as these hits were coon son knew that far more damaging was the loss of the Thai government's support without their protection coon saw was significantly weaker and everyone knew it January twenty first proved that his militia was no match for a real military. Embarrassed and betrayed ghunsa swore he wouldn't let himself be beaten. So easily he was still the self proclaimed King of the Golden Triangle and a world renowned freedom fighter. He would just have to figure out how to rebuild his operation in Burma. The problem with going back to Burma was that he was essentially a fugitive there. But looking at the political landscape, he decided to take a gamble. The Burmese military dictatorship was embroiled in ongoing battles with the Communist Party of Burma and a number of regional separatist groups. Despite his relatively high profile. Kuhn, saw wouldn't be the government's first priority a more difficult problem for him would be rebuilding his army. The only way he was going to hold onto his share of the drug market much less survive in war-torn northeast, Burma was through military strength. Kuhn. Saw and his Sean United Army started going after smaller drug organizations on the Burmese side of the border with each victory. The losing soldiers defected to Kuhn saw as they swept through the region, they secure key trafficking routes and territory for new heroin refineries. Seeing, just how quickly and forcefully Kuhn saw was able to rebuild the Taya Thirties realized they'd have to make amends with him. They appreciated that he was keeping the Burmese side of the border under control by taking over all the warring groups and their financial stakes in the heroine industry also meant they wanted to get back on the drug lords good side. They just needed to convince coon saw that it would be more lucrative for him to forgive and forget their trail luckily for the Thai officials coon Saws Pragmatism won out over his anger. In return for his forgiveness though he required that the Thai government's recognize him as the sole figurehead of the Sean State Independence Movement? This would legitimize his role as a freedom fighter on the international stage. However, in the years, he'd been in Thailand other Sean separatist groups with stronger ideological roots had expanded their bases in Burma. In particular the Sean State Army with whom Koon saw had an on again off again, relationship had become a military and political force to be reckoned with. If Kuhn saw wanted to even be the nominal leader of the rebel movement he was going to have to eliminate them. February nineteen eighty-three Kuhn saw shan united. Army. Swept into the homeowner valley whether Sean States Army kept its main base. It's close proximity to Thailand provided an easy escape route in case of attack from the Burmese government.

Because the powers that be are not happy with president, trump's well, maybe a little bit would that payroll tax they like that? But it's not that free money that they can pass around. And an here's a question that should be asked at the next presser. A has Arizona spent all of the covert funds. That have been allocated. Have we spent it all and how have we spent it? That'd be a good question when interesting. This from the American Post Gazette. Do. See wins race to the bottom ouch. As Lord Ducie. That's what it says here. Right? As Lord Ducie.

He is a gun grabber and supports red flag laws I. Remember that dot controversies well, with the help from his fellow deep state legislators. He signed the largest budget in Arizona history even bigger than the Michelle Reagan budget. He is the most arrogant and condescending person we have come across, but these are things you already know. And, his crimes are too numerous solicit here.

U.S. women's soccer criticized for celebrations after blowout win over Thailand
"The the goals in the game that everybody was talking about yesterday. Okay. When it comes to the World Cup, the US is facing Thailand. And it was it wasn't close at all. It was a blowout US women's team World Cup team. They win thirteen. Thirteen o okay over Thailand and. After the route. There were some people that were frustrated and have some opinions about was it showing a lack of class by essentially running up the score. On Thailand yesterday. Now I'm not a great soccer mind. But I said this to Paul Jordana earlier and we can't take any phone calls on this. If you have an opinion at six five one nine eight nine nine two six. I just didn't view it as, as running up the score because we are talking about world class athletes, and you're talking about women that have trained amazing athletes amazing women that have trained their whole lives to be in this spot. Okay to be in this spot. You don't take it easy on a country. When it comes to scoring a goal. Now the celebration part. I don't know. I mean was was all of the celebrations was at a little bit over the top when they got to go number nine or ten or eleven. Maybe I'd I don't know how how you wanna evaluate that. But I'm not somebody that's gonna have a problem with with within putting up the amount of goals. They ended up putting up just because of always been one of those advocates to that when it comes to football would've Bobby Bowden you say when he was heckled to Florida state. You know, he says, in track when you ahead everybody you don't slow down. So, you know. Stoppable if you don't like it. Stop them play better defense. And if you can't play better defensive, you can't stop them. Then, then this is what it is. And I saw an article. Earlier from Scott Gleason, from USA today. Why it's okay that the US woman ran up the score in the World Cup match against Thailand. In the biggest point that I think most people will look to is the goal. Different matters. Right. That's, that's absolutely a big deal from, from a practical standpoint that matters in the World Cup the top two teams from each group, advance in scoring differential could be the determining factor between seating in alternately advancing past the group stage as it's used as a tiebreaker, okay? Striker Alex Morgan, who had a World Cup record five goals in the wind Tuesday, said afterward that quote, we knew that every goal could matter in this group stage game. So I have no issues with that none. Absolutely. None. Another thing that was pointed out in the article momentum for the rest of the tournament that could be. When you're up five nothing you probably had all the momentum in the world. So, so I, I don't know thirteen the momentum really mattered that much. But to me, the difference differential when it comes to the scores that matters a ton. And then he also states sending a broader message to fearful. Hey, you want other countries to, to be paying attention to what the heck you're doing to give you some to put some respect on your name. Right. But there's plenty of respect. Okay. There's plenty of respect when it comes to the US women's team, the US women's team are like one of the favorites if not the favorite to win the whole thing and. It's interesting thought that this was a great point. The men would do it too. Like we're really questioning in talking about here with the women. But if it was the, the US men's team will we be as pissed off about it? Because I don't think that most would even view the, the US men's team is capable of scoring thirteen goals. Right. So I didn't have any issue with it. It was a phenomenal performance against the team that just was, you know, outclassed outmatched. They just not on our level. But I just did not have any issues with it. I, I don't know if you have a particular take on DJ, if you had any issues with enough, even if you're a soccer fan, but if you're gonna watch the US women's team over the course of the World Cup. I get into stuff like this, and we all do, right? Like even if you're not a soccer fan when you're talking about your nation performing on a big stage. We all rally around that I don't care if it's a men's team. I don't care if it's the women's team. We all have pride in these national teams. And we want them to do. Well, yeah, absolutely. And I, I'm not a huge soccer fan but certainly pay attention to the World Cup. I did not have a problem with them running up to score either. But. It's for a different reason than you've mentioned so far. Here's the deal. In soccer. You are only allowed I believe it's three substitution 's throughout a soccer game. Which means you're, you're not able to pull out all of your starters and put in all of your backup players. So. Maybe you can sub three of them, but other than that, you still have to play your best players, which is, you know, that's the opposite of what we say in college football or something if there's a blow out in the second half you putting in third. Stringers fourth stringers if you're at home and you've got the full whatever hundred plus players and you just can't do that in soccer. So then what he's supposed to tell these players to do that, are that are better than your the opposing team. These US women are better than Thailand, I suppose to, you know, kick the ball back and forth and play keep away for an hour. No, that's more insulting than scoring the goal. I still remember a time when I was playing volleyball. We're in the sand volleyball league and the team we were playing was better than us. And I was fine with it. They were killing us, but whatever we're losing and then the other team started to like started to kind of pity play with us and they had hit balls. They shouldn't and save their own hits from going out of bounds and I almost walked off the court because look, it's one thing to beat me, if you're better than me. But don't but don't embarrass me. Don't play keep away from me. Don't make a joke out of the sport. Play just beat me and go home and move on. So because of that, I think I think Thailand would agree. I would hope that, hey, you're better than us just put up the goals beat shake your hands afterwards, and we'll go home and try to get better for next time. It's one of those deals where it's like you know, okay when you're facing a football team or basketball team. And then, you know, they're, they're run up the score whatever. And they're really, really good in. Then they say we're gonna try to ease up. We'll take out the five star recruits put in the four star recruit. Yeah. Right. You can't win. It's like come on, man. And there are things that, you know, there are things that you do when you're up by that many points that you would stop doing. But in this case, when you know you can't put in your third string players all across the board and points. Do matter goals do matter goal differential. So yeah, I'm with you. I have no problem with it. Now there is one thing that we do know for certain Dave with is one thing that we know for certain that if this was the Mayak the US women's team got kicked out.
Buy the bullet: global defence spending
"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. The first of may brings out protesters all over the globe campaigning for better labor conditions. But in France weekly demonstrations by the so-called issue lay zone have been going on for months. Yesterday's mayday gatherings. Brought out a violent fringe that threatens the Jones message and president of annual Macron's attempts to address it. And we take a look at a new study that tries to measure, which English speaking country produces the most bullshit. But I. Last week. China's navy celebrated its seventieth birthday in grand style. As president Xi Jinping peered through binoculars into rain and mist a flotilla swept through the South China Sea. Nine. Winds there. What this moving you. Rose of white clouds, sailors stood on worships and saluted Mr. g who was aboard a brand new destroyer China has also boasted of its nuclear submarines and says it's building a new aircraft carrier America sees China as a growing rival, not just a military threat, but also economic one and the contest is being felt by America's closest allies in Britain yesterday. Gavin Williamson the Defense Secretary was fired by Prime Minister, Theresa may. He was accused of leaking details of how the country plans to let hallway a Chinese tech firm. Build part of its future five g mobile phone network. In response to that plan. America has threatened to cut back intelligence sharing with Britain. Beyond this America and China are leading the world in rearmament race. As a new report makes clear essentially the will to spending enormous sums of money on defense. Shizhong Joshi is economists defense editor this is the report by the Stockholm International Peace Research institute Cypriots Swedish thing Tang, and what it says this year is that global defense spending in twenty eight teen walls one point eight trillion dollars. Now, obviously that's a loss of money to put it in context of just how much it's the highest amount in real terms since sippy began this exercise in nineteen eighty eight and collecting these figures the end of the Cold War. It is seventy six percent higher than nine hundred ninety eight which was the peak of the post Cold War peace dividend when western countries began slashing on forces slashing spending. So you can see just how far we've come in the last twenty years. Also, just how much things have changed geopolitically and who's spending this one point eight trillion dollars, well essentially to. Countries are spending a leading the charge. That's America and China surprisingly America is heading shoulders above everyone else. It will spend about seven hundred sixteen billion dollars this year. That's significant increase from last year it out spends the next eight or so countries combined which gives you a sense of just how far ahead it is. Now, China is well behind spends a fraction of that. But it's military spending growing very quickly. It grew at an average of ten percent every year between two thousand and 2016 between two thousand fourteen in two thousand eighteen churned out. More ships ships with greater tonnage than the entire Indian Japanese navy. So that gives you a sense of just how rapidly they growing. And is this grew spread also among other nations or only American to the growing. It is great will that's provoking response. Particularly in Asia in Asia, for example, with seeing huge spurts among other countries. India for example, now. Spends more than any country in Europe. And I think Indians very proud of the fact that they are outspending not only countries like France, Germany, but also their old, colonial master Britain. Modern and invincible. Of whom stupefaction? Residency is Joel Indian skies ever own words. But Asia, Shirley, isn't the only place where governments want to to be up their defenses. No on Marshall Europeans. Have also been tooling up in recent years. They're obviously very worried by Russia, particularly after Russia's annexation of Crimea in two thousand fourteen they've been spending substantial amounts of quite quickly. If you're one single country its military spending would be four times that have Russia. In fact, it would be the second biggest military power in the world. So back to China, which has been spending money hand over fist as you say. But the their capabilities are still much much weaker compared to America's is there. Some sense of of when China might sort of outpace America will it'll be many many years before it can actually equal American spending. But I would say China gets to concentrate most of its military forces in its front garden in the western Pacific America has global commitments. So could we have a situation where Chinese forces in Asia? Outmatch American forces. Absolutely. We could have that very soon. Indeed. Depending on what America does depending on how China stretches capabilities so beyond America, China is is there anywhere where this would've frenzy of military spending. We'll kind of change the league table. I think we've seen a few changes taking place to Saudi Arabians in the Middle East have been spending huge amounts in the past ten years to the point where they are. Now, the third biggest spender in the world that obviously is going to have a major impact on the Middle East. If you look at Turkey, I think they've also been on a spending spree, and I think in Europe, one of the most interesting countries in eastern Europe, which of course, it's closer to Russia more about Russia's influence, and that's Poland. Police spending has been rising very quickly. They've been buying lots of American weapons, including an American Ed defense system, and they have been at the vanguard of some of this military spending spree in central and eastern Europe that we've seen in recent years. So looking at all these numbers is it's a global trend is everyone spending more. No, I think there's some pretty interesting places. West bending is is shrinking stagnating. The first example is the Middle East. Having said that Saudi Arabia. It was on this spending spree for the last ten years that slowing down. Sippy says that military spending the Middle East shrank by one point eight percent. In two thousand eighteen Saudi Arabia is planning on cutting spending after a number of years of growth, Iran is planning on cutting spending. Although we we don't have data for a few big countries like the United Arab Emirates and Casio. I think Africa's another good example military spending in Africa in two thousand eighteen shrink for the fourth consecutive year. And of course, as we know they're they're big protests in ALgeria and Sudan the military's under pressure from protesters to give way to civilians that could have an impact on on military budgets. I think finally the one I'd like to mention which is really interesting is Russia. Russia has modernized its armed forces over the last decade invested in lots of shiny new weapons. Sippy now says that his slowing. Down at that that boom in Russia is coming to an end. It's calculation say military spending in Russia shrunk by three and a half percent last year. Okay. Some of that could be to do with the fall of the ruble. This little probably spending a lot in ruble, terms. But I think what we all seeing is that the years of Russia plowing money into its military driven by oil that is slowly coming to an end, and that will have an impact, of course, on the European military balance. I mean, it's it's tempting to imagine that more spending on arms makes conflict more likely. There's just simply more more guns and weapons in more hands. What's your take on the Wilbur one really gave us a strong association between alms racing and conflict? We thought the Germans and the British and others competing supremacy. In your building up ships building up weapons and that played a role in contributing to willed, we'll one I think the political science the sort of social science around. This is a bit more complicated. I don't think there is necessarily clear connection between rapid arms racing. And outright conflict. Some people would say actually countries build up weapons, they feel they can deter their adversaries, they feel more secure. They don't feel the need to be vulnerable into lash out. So the association is complicated. What I would say is. I think there's a kind of cycle relationship between mistrust and building homes, the more countries don't trust each other like the US and China over China's island building and in competition in Asia, the more they build up weapons to prepare for the possibility of a clash the more. They build up weapons the less they trust each other. Thank you very much for coming in. Thank you very much.

"That you will not shut down the Muller investigation? I I don't play anything, but I will have no intention of doing that. I think it's a very unfair. Investigation because there was no collusion of any kind. But you. I don't want to pledge. Why should I pledge to you have to play? Yeah. And that's what a lot of last night was what could we catch you in? What can we got you? And I saw great article. He posted on Facebook. Chad Benson show go there like it. Check it out about the fact that variety said he won. She was she was outmatched in in a lot of this stuff. It was a very interesting. Take on a lot of stuff last night from Kim to Putin. A lot of tried to get you in some Gotcha situations too. Yes. Even our favorites climate change. I'm not denying climate change. But it could very well. Go back. You know, we're talking about. They say that we had hurricanes that were far worse than what we just had with Michael who says that they say people say that. But what about the scientists who say it's worse than ever? You have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda, which is something that never gets talked about right for all of this stuff. Well, the scientists the scientists he he loses a chance to put to say, look there are other scientists do don't have a political agenda who say, maybe this isn't all it's cracked up to be. And remember this when it comes to climate change who's always in front of senators, and congress people asking for money people who have money that they need to continue and to further because climate change is their business wing climate change is your business. You want to climate change that continue right because you're not gonna you're not gonna get any more money to continue doing what you're doing. Unless you say, hey, if you fix climate change tomorrow, you get no more money if you fix poverty tomorrow, get no more money. And you want money. Do you want money? Now, one of the other things they talked about was kashogi. Now, he is the. Well, I mean, he is the arguably the biggest most influential political voice in the Middle East. He's a journalist who has gone missing after going into the Saudi Arabia embassy or the consulate e about two weeks ago with his fiance waiting outside. You get a piece of paper. So he could get married. He never came out. They said he went through the back. She says they're calling Bs the Turkey. You know, the Turkish people who've got the video and the and the officials say, but there is a big thing writing on this first of all these journalists and he's influential. Secondly. There's huge money involved in this to the tune of about one hundred plus billion dollars in big big big. Arms deals here with the US. And now, it's what do we do? How do we go about fixing this? Is there anything that? We should do when it comes to this. And she asked him last night Kenya. You know, what if this goes down? How can we get out of this deal did the prince give the order to kill him? Nobody knows yet. But we'll probably be able to find out. It's being investigated. Everybody in the world one of that order Russia wanted it China wanted we wanted it. We got it. So would you cut that on what what I don't wanna do? Boeing Lockheed Raytheon all these. I don't want to hurt jobs. I don't want to or like that. There are other ways of. Punishing now what other ways that I don't know? But it is interesting. But he goes on to talk about journalist in a very well, very un-trumpian way. There's a lot at stake, and maybe especially so because this man was a reporter is something you'll be surprised to hear me say that if something really terrible and disgusting about that. If that were the case, so we're gonna have to see. Yeah. I don't know what he could. Or couldn't do what I do know is it is a very bizarre situation that needs to get dealt with supposedly the Turkish officials have had access to go look around the consulate. And I don't know exactly what they're gonna do. It's been two weeks anything that could have been cleared up. The fact is is you're looking at potentially at fifteen guys you wanted in there afterwards. It could have been hit squad or something and out of that fifteen people that wandered in their sixteen could have got out and saying that the talks are bone saw. Saw. Right. So what would you have done tortured him to death? Eventually cut him up into bits and pieces. And then send the fifteen people that came in with bits and pieces about who knows what potentially may have happened from this. But the world is looking on. And you're finding out more and more people are banding Saudi Arabia because of this. They don't want to have a part of this. You're seeing actors celebrities and businesses pull out of Saudi Arabia right now until they get to the point where they can say definitively that they didn't have anything to do with his death. And I don't know if they're going to be able to figure this out. I don't it is ugly ugly ugly right now. But there's also a lot of jobs at stake one hundred ten billion dollars a lot of money and Trump's plan. He's trying to play the middle on the spoke to the guy. Right spoke to him.

"Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Jerry hendriks. United States navy aviator tire is at the telephone group advising, for example, Northrop Grumman building aircraft carriers. We're also looking at a paper that Jerry wrote at his last days at the center for new American security just published about the challenges for the navy and the airforce for the US military in the Pacific, especially off the shores of East Asia against an aggressive. Predatory state the Chinese with their Russian allies after the year twenty thirty when she Jinping the president for life tells us that he expects his military to match and outmatch the United States navy chief threat to their tyranny in the far Pacific, Jerry we've spoken of the air wings and the shortfall. We spoken of the carriers. Even the fourth Ford class carrier not having an answer until and if the. Navy and the airforce worked together for deep strike, but you right of something called the fine fix finish kill chain dealing with hypersonic weapons that can travel very quickly, and this other element that doesn't exist now. Although I understand it's being built, and they're the navy's debating at an unmanned platform, both as a strike platform, and as a tanker platform, what does that mean, Jerry? And what what are they building? Well, what what is important here is is minimizing what we call latency, which is the time separation between when you can find a platform or find a target you want to fix its location, and you want to track it, and then you wanna be able to then targeted for elimination. So if we have a space based asset or an overhead intelligence surveillance reconnaissance drone that is watching and it has to watch almost persistently to see any subtle changes in the. Movement of platforms or geography once it detects something that looks like a target. Then you want to minimize the amount of time between classifying it as a target and then putting a weapon on that target. The problem is all too often. Now, where either using overhead space-based, I I s our assets or overhead. Unmanned platforms that are not quipped with weapons. And so the idea of having a platform that can penetrate into a very advanced a surface to air missile environment. That means that that platform would have to have a low aspects stealth all aspects self all the way around it, and then would have to have a deep magazine because eventually once you have that platform get in there, you want it to persist in that environment for a period of time. So they could hit perhaps multiple targets. So the problem there becomes you know, how long can men sit in a bomber or an aircraft and still be combat effective. If you're in a very large bomber like the new b twenty one then perhaps you can do that. And you get up remove around have a little bit of stretching legs with Spar. Naval aircraft is very difficult to do that in your almost limited to ten hour profiles. So the idea of launching an unmanned platform from a carrier and then having it platform refuel on its way to the target. So that it can extend. It's endurance. And then look for targets identified them hit them. And then move onto a new set of targets that's really sort of the holy grail of this fine, fix finish triangle that we look at. And so this is where naval aviation oughta be going with its design for a long range fixed wing bomber. But does far has not. In fact, it's it seems to be hung up on on f thirty five's in FAA teens, which are both fine aircraft for what their original design was which was sort of a light attack mission. But when you want to go deep, you want to go with a heavier load, and you wanna be able to persist there. And so the navy has fallen short of that over the last generation and a half is the navy fighting the last war Jerry that is the curse of the twentieth century. So we we actually talk about this. We we think that the navy gets up every morning prepares to fight the battle of midway. And so it's not just the last word. It's perhaps three wars ago was a great victory. At seven minutes to change the course of the war. Absolutely. Absolutely. And everyone wants to be able to go to point lock and know the game plan to execute and the army for that sense. I mean, I think the US military's sort of fixed a strategically in sort of the larger wars of the second World War without moving onto the environment. We actually exist in and so looking to the future. If the navy was looking to that, then it would be wanting to move its carrier air wings to a new a mix of aircraft in order to keep them relevant into these future environments that we can see coming where missiles and directed energy and longer-range weapon systems are going to dominate. But does far we have not seen that. In fact, we seem to be lost in the nineteen nineties when we could park a carrier in the Adriatic Sea. And then take a fifteen minute hop over into you, former Yugoslavia, and no one's gonna shoot back at you. So the idea of being locked strategically into permissive in. Environments seems to be the mistake that we've made over the last thirty years is the carrier secure now as it as it deploys into the Pacific Kennedy defeat China now, Jerry. So that's a great question. I would say that we still maintain an advantage over the Chinese now both geo-strategically strategically at the operational level, and perhaps even tactically, but the Chinese are building capabilities and resources very quickly. And at some point in time, you can you can envision in your mind that sometime within the next ten years. I believe in twenty twenty five to twenty thirty timeframe that there will be a demolish, and and they will call our bet, and we'll have to make a decision whether we're going to lean in and come to the aid of an ally or partner or whether we're going to see that portion of the ocean, and that portion of the world to a Chinese fear of influence, and I fear that we will not be ready for that challenge and the US navy right now and the debates they're looking forward. They're talking about a three hundred and fifty five ship navy perhaps by twenty thirty with that provide the security that the carrier needs in order to penetrate. The pacific. So it will head in that direction because we certainly do need more platforms in order to surround our aircraft carriers and give them adequately defenses. But this other part that I raised in the paper, which is we need to invest in a new generation of missiles new generation of radars and sensors that will allow those ships be the cruisers destroyers frigates to better protect that carrier and its air wing as its executing mission. We also need a new generation of of frigates essentially to do the day to day presence operations to preserve the peace in the interim between now in that war. And then they'll serve an escort mission wants a war begins. And and I think the navy is beginning to think about that. We've set the number right three hundred fifty five ships. What we haven't set is what type of ships within that number. So that has not been decided on. And I noted that the air force in this last week made the mentioned that they needed to grow from three hundred twelve squadrons to three hundred eighty six so they. I have a number. But again, there debate is how many squadrons of what type how many squadrons of bombers versus how many squadrons of fighters. I would argue they need many more bombers than fighters in their future force concert, Jerry Hendrickson. United States navy retired writing for the center for new American security in his last days.
