Kevin McCarthy Needs to Stop Embarrassing Himself

"Speaking of horrible horrible men, you tweeted about Kevin McCarthy, which can I just say how hilarious it is that he probably is not even qualified enough to actually get the votes together to be speaker. So we'll see. I mean, do you remember Nancy Pelosi had to put down more than one rebellion? That's why she's such an amazing negotiator, vote counter and leader, but I thought, oh my God, this stumble. He's not going to be able to figure out how to piece together enough votes. It doesn't seem like right now. Yeah. But yeah, and you talked about his oh, and the very first day wolff read every single word of the constitution allowed from the floor. You just said the thing is this yutz knows what embarrassing this is, but he'll do it anyway, cringe or not. Also, they've done that every Congress forever. I know. I know. And it is so cringe. Whenever whichever party does it, you know, it's like this big show. Nobody's watching. I mean, if you're watching, what is wrong with you? It takes you, it takes 5 minutes to read the constitution. You know, instead you're going to sit there and listen to them for a couple of hours. It's the right wing version of virtue signaling. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.

So you are the you were man enough to retweet Donald Trump Jr. who said after turning a blind eye to pedophilia and the sexualization of our children as well as forcing vaccines upon people against their will with severe consequences, et cetera, the west has really seated the moral high ground to bitch about Qatar enforcing their beliefs that the World Cup. Oh my God. You said, do we have to show you the video of your dad and Jeffrey Epstein again? Can I just say the drag shows, I don't, in what way does that sexualize children? I have just been looking all over Twitter. It pictures of those child beauty pageants. That's sexually mainly red states. Is that not the sexualization of children above and beyond anything else? Yeah, yeah, and by their logic, if you're gonna shut down things that where grooming of children for sex has happened, shut down multiple churches, multiple religions. If you're gonna do that, you know? And have they ever produced anything? Any bit of evidence that shows that, you know, somebody went to a drag show and brought a child to a drag show to groom them for exploitation. It's just, it's so ridiculous. And so to me now, I think we need to go with you're a pedophile. If you think drag shows lead to booming kids. Because you know who talks who thinks about how to groom kids, pedophiles. Yes.

"pelosi" Discussed on WCPT 820

"Pelosi was brutally attacked by a drugged out illegal alien that should have been deported and Paul Pelosi should have been a gun owner and shot his attacker. Oh, I see. Okay. So she wants to. So that was the opposite thoughts and prayers. He got booze. Yeah, sure. And if you had a gun. So she wants to force people to purchase guns and keep them? I don't know if the attacker had a gun pop policy would be dead. So there's that way of looking at it. Yeah. You're fantastic. Second Amendment. Okay. And then there was this. Democrats have ripped our border wide open. But the only border they care about is Ukraine. Not America's southern border. Under Republicans, not another penny will go to Ukraine. Wow, wow, wow. Our country comes first. This story this morning, Biden's top national security adviser has been speaking with his counterparts in Russia and an ongoing attempt to deescalate the nuclear threats by Putin. The game has been to guard against the risk of escalation and keep communication channels open not to discuss the settlement of the war in Ukraine. Chinese ally Z presidency has made it clear to Putin that a nuclear weapon is a red line for him, one former KGB agent said Putin is not stupid and likely wouldn't act in a way that would ultimately result in his own death. Can I just say the minute I read the story, I was like, how much did that Republicans are rooting for nuclear war so they can blame Biden? So they can say, oh, look what Biden caused by screwing up the Putin Russia situation. I mean, that's how, I mean, the fact that she's just coming right out and saying we're going to stop helping Ukraine is okay. And she's only one of the right wing ladies

The Democrats' Obsession With Doing Whatever the Heck They Want

The Democrats' Obsession With Doing Whatever the Heck They Want

"Thing up, last year, we and we've talked about this on the podcast before that the Democrats obsession with doing whatever they wanted to do and sort of be damned with the rules, everything else just doing it because they can do it. At the time, a lot of us said this is going to come back to bite them. This is going to come back and be a problem in the future. What they get done now will come back to be a problem later. The thing that you have to realize in Congress is as much as you might think otherwise, Congress is really a body that operates over very set schedule, all fours are very set rule package. It offers a very set quorums and decorum and how it goes about its business. And over my biggest gripe with the Nancy Pelosi, speakership over the last four years, and especially the last two that I was there, and I wrote in my book, the clock and the counter. I wrote about this was the Democrats would be willing to end result do anything they had to do, whether it was taking the rules of practice of the house and throwing them out, whether it was breaking the rules and prices of the house, throwing them out. They didn't care because at the end of the day, they wanted to get an end result. It was either get it Donald Trump or was either to get legislation passed, whatever it was, they were going to do it because they simply had the votes to do it. Simply having the most to do something is not the best way to do this. I'll use an example that I've used before. Nancy Pelosi and I clashed many times on the floor. One of those times that we classed on the floor was at a time in which she was giving a speech during impeachment. She accused the president, Trump at the time of a crime and Colin McRae, which you can not do. I know rules of the House and language are very different than they're there for a reason, but she said that she, you know, she made the claim. I was handling the bill for the Republicans. I stood up and I said, I'm going to give you a chance to correct your language. She said, nope, I've already approved this. She threw her papers at the well and left.

"I hate that every time we have to talk to you, there's something that's proves you're right that is not a good thing. Someone just tweeted as Malcolm nan says they want to kill Americans. You tweeted, you know, after the Colorado Springs stochastic terrorism, Kerry lakes doing it in Arizona. Kerry lakes lies force Maricopa County election official into hiding with a torrent of death threats. I mean, Malcolm, it just feels like one long unbroken story. January 6th, the Paul Pelosi attack, you know, and they just don't stop. You know, they don't stop in terms of targeting people, Mike Pompeo just called the head of the teachers union, the most dangerous person in the world. Wow. Really? Yeah. I mean, I saw that yesterday I was absolutely stunned. Well, yes. And they want to kill Americans, and they are now encouraging other Americans to target other Americans. And the worst part is we are just getting started. Things are going to get much much worse. And I'm going to give that to you straight, no chaser. This is a pure, very obvious intelligence analysis that now because they won the House of Representatives. They feel not just empowered, but emboldened to go after their enemies. The good, you know, to a gay nightclub and shoot all the patrons. You know, to the point where, you know, families were there. They just, they have been told over and over again that liberals, liberalism, you know, education with the case of Randy Andy Randy weingarten. That's insane. Yeah. These people have decided they are going to embrace the potential of violence or actual violence and calling out their enemies so that this, you know, the crazy criminal crusaders will all come out and start killing them.

Megan Basham Discusses David French's About Turn on Marriage

"Megan, so let's keep going. We're talking about something that just happened. Thanks to these horrifically feckless Republican senators, 12 of them, God help us. What has been the evangelist, the reaction of some evangelicals now. By the way, the fact that you mentioned the southern Baptists and the U.S. Catholic bishops dissented said this was not good. That alone is amazing news because the U.S. Catholic bishops have been incredibly pathetic on a number of things. On this, they did it right. I'm thrilled to hear that. But what has been the word out there in the rest of evangelicalism? Well, I think there's been a lot of shock over in particular that David French piece. I assume your audience is probably pretty familiar with David French, but if you're not, he is a well-known evangelical pundit. He writes at the Atlantic. He has his own publication called the dispatch that he publishes with some other never trumpers. And he put out a piece yesterday that is shocking a lot of people, not only did he defend the respect for marriage act, the disrespect for marriage act. But what he did in this piece was essentially say, I have evolved on marriage and he made the argument that he still personally from a religious perspective believes that marriage is between one man and one woman. But he no longer believes that there's any reason in law to limit marriage to a man and woman. And basically said, I have changed my views legally. And the reason that's important is because I'm just going to lay out in my opinion. And I understand that there are different opinions. But the reason that we have marriage as a state recognized institution at all is not because the state needs to be in the business of blessing affection between individuals. The purpose of the state recognizing marriage is because it is the institution in which with a man and a woman, children are produced and it provides the best rearing for children the best development for children. I mean, we could go in the study after study. So it was interesting that David French did not deal with that at all in this piece. He just sort of made the argument that you hear from ostensibly Catholic politicians like Joe Biden like Nancy Pelosi saying, I am personally pro life, but I am not going to seek to defend my pro life views in law in any way. And so it's sort of astonishing for a Christian and a really well known Christian who speaks on religious legal issues frequently to say, I'm not going to argue anymore that marriage between a man and a woman, God's design for marriage has any real value in American law.

"Does anyone listening to this broadcast believe that? Or is it a lie? Of course it's a lie. But truth is not a left wing value. It's a liberal value. And the conservative value. A crisis that continues to disproportionately harm trans people of color. So trans people of color are being are being stolen away, whatever that means by violence, I assume it means killed. Really, and by whom? Is it by white Trumpists? Who is killing all of these transphobic? Trans trans people who are of color. Pelosi went on. That fight remains more urgent than ever as right wing extremist target transgender Americans most fundamental rights and freedoms really, like what?

Nancy Pelosi Blames Colorado Shooting on MAGA Republicans

"Nancy Pelosi blames maga Republicans after gay nightclub shooting. Nancy Pelosi is an individual who proves how easy it is to live with one's conscience. No matter what one does. That's how I look at her. Really, maga Republicans are responsible for this length to this gay nightclub shooting. By the way, do you recall, what was the name of the club where there's a big massacre of gays? Where was that? It was in the on the east coast. That was in Florida, and what was the name? It's on the tip of my tongue, the name of that nightclub. And they, of course, spoke about how this is another example of homophobia in America, all these gays killed, and it turns out it was a Muslim, and it was not who did it, and he was just looking. Is that correct? Is that the case where it was a Muslim? And he was just looking for a place to pulse the pulse nightclub. And even he didn't do it necessarily because they were gay. He just wanted a place to shoot people up. He had another name on his list. Had nothing to do with homophobia. He didn't even know it was a gay place.

Happy 80th Birthday, Mr. President

"President is now 80. This is kind of a big deal because again, it's a first. It's a historic first. We have a very old president, but I think that's pretty evident to everyone. One of the questions now, however, becomes whether or not he's going to continue on, right? Because at some point you just say, I'm getting up there like Nancy Pelosi did, right? Well, you're getting up there, plus you're losing. And thus you have to start to say, maybe it's time for a change. Maybe the Democrat party needs to think about who else? Who else is out there and I'm not talking Kamala Harris because I don't think that she's winning material in any way, shape or form. It would be great for the GOP actually if they were to run Kamala Harris. But right now, it's looking increasingly like Joe Biden wants to maybe do this again, at least that's the message that he has been conveying recently in the media. They say they're going to look at it more closely between Thanksgiving and Christmas. So, you know, that's like right about now. But he would be 82. 82 when he's running next time around, and then he would be, well, let's do the math. 86 by the time he leaves office. Already, he has shown numerous signs of his age. I'm not an ageist, you know that. And I do believe it's just a number. However, there are certain realities that you can not ignore when you're 80 years old. We've seen him now show signs of slowing. And if I am not talking about mental, I mean, I think in some way, shape or form, that's been obvious for a long time, perhaps even as long as 40 years ago, because you just can't ever quite seem to say the right thing. I do believe he was speaking about visiting Columbia recently when he meant Cambodia. So that kind of stuff. But, you know, he's done that forever. But nonetheless, there are some issues, certainly physically, you've seen he has a much slower gait right now, a halting gait and that's sort of in contrast to what we saw. Even as short as two years ago in 2020, remember, and he was jumping onto the stage on election night. So

"The real point is this is a quick one. You're talking about the 25 kid depth down to California that basically were attacked and maimed. And yep. The perpetrator was released. But yet, the attacker on Paul Pelosi, he's still in jail. Man, I'm just pointing out the hypocrisy of the California injustice system. That's a great point. I didn't really think about that, Greg, but you're right. That guy is still in jail, and I think it's important for us to use the word alleged attack because clearly we don't have all the facts. And something is not quite adding up. They're in the Pelosi mansion in the Tony section of San Francisco, but to your point, I mean, you're right there is, I mean, look at what's happening right now in Washington, D.C.. How many American citizens have been locked up since January 6th? No trial. You're right. The Pelosi one, that is alleged. But this guy that did this thing down. Oh, he did it. California. There's no alleging on that one. That's right. And in my opinion, it should be no trial, no report to file, just he should have been shot on the spot. And it's just not there's nothing there's nothing. There's nothing to think about on that one, but you know, for the DA down there to drag it out and let the guy go, it just shows you just what we're up against.

Maybe it'd be nice if the FBI and the Justice Department just stayed out of it, let me the people decide who we think should represent us who we think should lead us. That's supposed to be how America works. So this is the focus on the judiciary committee, the political nature of the Justice Department, and the linkage now to what was happening with the Hunter Biden story. Again, just 15 days before we have presidential election. Now, this tremendous congressman asks maybe one of the most important questions of our lifetime. Why can't we let the people decide who will govern us? And lead us.

"That was a great, great night. And leader Pelosi was such a wonderful guest and the energy of the crowd. You know, I had met her before. She joined us on that show. I had done some TV shows with her, but honestly, there's no way to measure how many lives she saved by getting the ACA passed in the first place and by saving the ACA. Her greatest achievement may have been, taking all these Democrats in the caucus from the democratic socialists to the pro lifers and keeping them united in message discipline for the first two years of Trump's term. Yeah. I mean, it's hard to explain what leadership is. You just know it when you see it. I remember that night because you know our filthy little show. It's rockets. But by the way, you can see it on pay per view, folks. If you go to meet hook dot live, but go on, please. Yes. No, but I was just remember that night, don't you that when she came out? I mean, you could have heard a pin drop in that theater. People just hung on every word she said. I mean, she just, and you know, as usual, she just had unbelievable grace and class and timing. I think she did it perfectly, you know, in terms of saying it's time for the new generation. She's going to fulfill her term, but you know, it's not about ego for her. She's not obviously she will be there to pass the torch. Oh yeah. And I will say, though, in fairness, Nancy Pelosi did nothing about crime or inflation by going after Hunter Biden's laptop. I mean, like, there were so many chances she could have gone after his laptop to fight inflation and crime, and she just refused to. So now I think the real reason she's staying is so she can have a front row seat as speaker emeritus to watch Kevin McCarthy's dreams go up in violent bloody flames. It is the two years of a clown show and two years of Democrats saying, oh, by the way, look at all these new jobs, some of the infrastructure Bill we passed. Oh, by the way, have you noticed seniors, you're paying lower for prescription drug prices, thanks to the IRA, they are going to have a record they can run on. That's in play by 2024. And Kevin McCarthy is going to give people a great big commercial while you shouldn't trust Republicans. Thank you.

"By the way, we have more time than I thought. I mistakenly segment word, which is wonderful. I'm happy to have more time with you. So I just want you to know, and I wonder if I represent anything other than a little tiny segment of the population. If I have a choice, I don't buy items now made in China. Do you think I am idiosyncratic or represent some percentage of the population? So they're probably R is some percentage of the population, but my guess is that most people don't even think about that. I mean, many of the things that you'd order on Amazon are probably made on China, for instance, or some other, you know, if you ordered online, it's very hard to tell where it's sourced. Right, but forgive me. I want to tell you an interesting thing looking at Amazon, how often, you know, they have a series of questions about the product, the Q&A, it's a common thing, almost always, I now see is it made in China is one of the questions. Right. Yeah. So I do think that there is increasing concern, but it's a tough consumers, I do a lot of work research on sustainability too, and people that people want to buy based on price, to be honest. If they like it and the price is good, I think that I'm aware I'm aware. Okay, so again, I don't know how many my policy represents. The but I want to just review so companies that are still there are doing well. However, isn't there a big problem, which is part of your book, obviously, given his authoritarianism and clamping down on even free enterprise let alone free speech or free movement, there is a downturn in the Chinese economy. Is that correct? Yeah, I mean, definitely at least, I mean, if you believe the government figures, which, of course, those are frequently thought of sort of with the great grain of salt. Yeah, the economy has been down over the last few years. Very much so I think a result of obviously the COVID lockdowns. People are stuck at home. It's much harder for them to be sort of out and going to restaurants. Et cetera. Although there has been even a more vibrant delivery economy driven. So I do think the economy is definitely down without a doubt. But I think that these businesses are hoping that once things open up again that there will be this sort of service. But why would they open up again? He's closing them down. So the economy or the firms. The economy. Yeah. I think that's a good question. And I'm not super optimistic about when China is going to open up again. I think that they very much like having limited foreign foreigners coming in. So let me ask you a philosophical question. Sure. Do you think, because I dealt with this in my study, my field was Russia. And I always wondered, is it the czarist influence that led people to accept communism to the extent that they did? Is it the is it the Confucian background that allows people in China to accept totalitarian rulers? So there is, I think, an element of that that you could make the case because in Confucianism there is this sort of very much hierarchical relationship between the state and people. So the idea that there is a strong central state that's authoritarian, has existed throughout Chinese history. That said, other countries that have also followed that model, you know, Taiwan or Korea or Japan. Oh, that's correct. Democratic. Back in a moment, Mao and markets final segment coming up.

"Okay, next question, what happened to Jack Ma? Yeah, I mean, I think this is why China is sort of scary place. You know, he crossed the government, had been doing very, very well for a very long period of time. By the way, let everybody know that the man is the founder of Alibaba. He is the Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos of China. Exactly. And so he found that Alibaba, which has like an eBay type of platform, however, what he did is he then created a payments company on the back of that ant financial, which was the company that was going to go public and a variety of other products and the app is actually it's not just like a PayPal or an eBay. It's actually a lifestyle app where people can pay all their bills, they can order taxis, they can rent bikes. So he created this really very effective and creative platform for people to use. And the payments part of that and financial was going to go public. And they had savings accounts. The banks in China are basically state controlled. And they are mostly state owned. Have very low interest rates. And so he, because he had all these people's sort of cash because they wanted to do transactions on the taobao or Alibaba platforms, you know, he had these big pots of money that he could actually invest in money market funds and return at a much higher interest rate to the general public. And so he gained a lot of power by having get by gathering all these assets sort of outside the formal banking sector. So when ant financial was going to go public, this is now a few years ago, the government basically two days before actually had some very strident comments about government regulation in this area that they should meddle. They would just create problems. And has disappeared. And yes, they canceled the IPO literally like two days before it was supposed to go public. And then they disappeared him. And he was, you know, he's still sort of missing from what I understand. You know, occasionally he'll pop up. So you have no idea where he is either. I think the last time I heard he might have been Spain, believe it or not. Oh, okay, well, oh, sorry. Look, I pictured him dead. So yeah, no, no, no. He's alive. Oh, good, okay. But clearly. But they got rid of him. They got rid of him, basically. And not an uncommon pattern to be honest. Correct. We don't have a lot of time to take you to the very end of the show, but the last segment is sure. Explain to me the crazed crazed policies of lockdown in Shanghai and elsewhere. What animated that. Yeah, so I mean, I think there's a couple of things. One, you know, I think that she and the CCP all right, hold on, we'll get your answer. I forgive me, but while you're American, you know about commercials. I usually have to explain it to foreigners.

"Get into that story tell everybody. Oh yes, I have the news. The news from Washington, D.C., Nancy Pelosi is stepping down as the leader of the Democrats. She would no longer be speaker because the Republicans eked out a majority. And the reason that I have nothing important to say about it is because there is nothing important to say about it. What difference does it make? What Democrat does what? It will be destructive no matter what, because Democrats are no longer liberal. They are leftist and the left ruins everything it touches. Okay, so there will be a new leader, a new destructive force. Have you noticed this that actresses the word actress is no longer used? They say actor? Yeah. And what is the reason for that? Lest we make a feminine masculine distinction? It shows you how bored everyone on the left is the whole woke world. They meet to manufacture causes. You know how, you know how much better society is, now that we no longer say actor or actress, do they do it, by the way, at the Academy Awards? Is there leaving actress and leading actor best actor best actress? They've kept those terms. So anyway, that's not the reason I'm mentioning it. I'm mentioning it because that's the way this article is written. Candace Cameron beret faces backlash after announcing traditional marriage project. Where is this from? Did you send this to me? No, you didn't actually. And I discovered that daily mail, I think. It is from no NBC News. There we go. NBC News. So here's the story. The actor, NBC is woke. It's not the actress, the actor. Well, does NBC News use LatinX. You know, I'm a Jew. How about dukes? Maybe they'll JE wx. How many dukes are there in America? These people, they're so bored. And now secularism plus affluence equals boredom equals leftism. That is that is the way to understand modern life. The actor Candace Cameron beret is facing backlash now why would an actress face backlash? What did she do? Did she make some anti you name it comment? What did she do did she say men do not give birth? Which can definitely get you. Blacklisted, fun can use the term in Hollywood. No, let's find out. She's facing backlash following her recent comments about her new TV project that she said will prioritize portraying traditional marriage. That is bad news. Cameron bure, 46th, the former full House star showing you ever watch full House. And yes, you did too. All of you did, good. I'm sorry. Oh, you went to school with her? Wow. Made the remarks in a recently published interview with The Wall Street Journal magazine, a reporter asked whether great American family, the new cable network she joined after she left the hallmark channel this year, would feature same sex couples as leads in Hollywood movies. According to the journal, Cameron beret said, no. I think that great American family will keep traditional marriage at the core, she told the magazine. On its social media pages, great American family describes its programming as quote celebrating faith, family and country. For that alone she's going to be blacklisted in Hollywood. Faith family and country wholly crow, you can't get more patriarchal, homophobic, islamophobic, what are the phobias are there? Transphobic. Then that.

"Would the U.S. get involved if China and Taiwan went to war, what do we know about this? The U.S. has a policy of strategic ambiguity, so we do not say whether or not we will defend Taiwan, even though we've given billions of dollars for Taiwan to defend itself. That's basically our policy. U Taiwan defend yourself. We'll help you do so. But whether or not we will come to your defense will leave strategically ambiguous. Now, president Joe Biden three times has said the U.S. will come and defend Taiwan. And each time his staff has watched back his comments saying the policy hasn't changed. Himself has said that, but you know, when you go on three occasions and you're the president, kind of go, yes, it is our policy to defend Taiwan. That ups the ante. That's almost de facto changes the policy. Whether a future president sort of continues that or follows a huge ambiguity, and since 1979, we don't know, it does feel right. It does feel like, you know, if it was 50 50 before, it's like 55, 45 now that the U.S. would do so, in which case we're talking about really a massive conflict here. Which would also bring in Japan, probably South Korea. Other U.S. allies and who knows what else? It would be as close to World War three if not World War three than you'd ever see. What Alex is a war between China and Taiwan most likely to start over. Well, anything that could spark a miscalculation and lead to mistrust between the U.S. Taiwan and China. And Pelosi's visit isn't like the perfect thing for that, but it's darn close. Because it feels like, right, if you're in Beijing right now, you're going, again, the second in line to the presidency. You know, I have to present and vice president themselves. It's a Speaker of the House of the same party as the president, going to Taiwan to basically go democracy, small D is good, human rights is good. We stand by Taiwan, then you have Chinese military exercises in response to that because of Xi Jinping's own political needs. He's got to act tough, which will then lead to some sort of perhaps stronger response from Taiwan and the U.S. and who knows this could spiral out of control. That's sort of been the big issue here, is that something small ish. Causes a series of miscalculations and escalations that eventually leads to someone doing something very stupid and starts a war. Again, I wouldn't say Pelosi's visit is it. We have precedent, right? Former speaker, Newt Gingrich was there in 1997, tons of American lawmakers have gone to Taiwan. This isn't new. But the fact that China is finding angrily to this could lead them to do something dumb, which leads Taiwan to the U.S. to do something dumb. And

"Speaker Pelosi's plane landed in Taiwan, The Washington Post published an op-ed she'd written called why I'm leading a congressional delegation to Taiwan. Quote, in the face of the Chinese Communist Party's accelerating aggression, our congressional delegations visit should be seen as an unequivocal statement that America stands with Taiwan, our democratic partner as it defends itself and its freedom. Today explained we're back with Alex ward, he's a national security reporter for Politico. Alex, what is China's saying about Pelosi's visit to the U.S.? What is Xi Jinping saying to his own people? What does he DMing to Taiwan's leaders? What do we know for certain about how China feels here? So unhappy, right? So what they're planning again is some sort of increased aggression in the sense of missile strikes. Into the water airplane incursion shifts, et cetera. But what they've been saying is like, look, in a call that we're told lasted more than two hours, she warned President Biden, those who play with fire will perish by it. It is hoped that the U.S. will be clear eyed about this. And he says that a lot, it's a pretty evocative phrase, but Chinese state run media commentators have basically been threatening and they take their hues from the leader and from the government. They would consider shooting down Pelosi's play. There's no real risk of that. Sorry, I should tell him, that's like no real risk. It's like .0001%. That would be a calamitous moment. But there is fear in The White House and elsewhere from the Chinese are saying that like, this is going to lead to short term, perhaps medium term escalation. And that's something, you know, no one can really afford at the moment, especially with the Russian Ukraine thing going on. So, you know, which China is basically saying is like, you should have stopped her from going. You know, Joe Biden. The fact that you didn't is a signal to us that you really are trying to escalate this moment because look, it's a democratic Speaker of the House. Under a democratic president. And whether or not we know that it's kind of hard for Biden to tell Pelosi what to do, that doesn't translate well elsewhere in the world. I go, okay, well, obviously this is a signal, even a wink wink signal. So a very unhappy about this event. What do China's threats about Taiwan actually mean? What has happened in the recent past that we might worry about? Well, I think we should first know that even though they might be sending signals to the U.S., it's mostly for domestic audience, right? We got to remember where Xi Jinping is here. And I try to always emphasize dictators have politics too. So Xi Jinping has a party Congress this fall. The 20th Communist Party Congress, in which he is both trying to find the lies, his forever rule, and trying to get past some of his own policy preferences. And there are parts of that Communist Party that do not want him to lead for life and do also consider him weak. And how weak does this make Xi Jinping look if Nancy Pelosi lands in Taiwan, you know, weeks, months before that party conference. It is unsurprising then that she is in his apparatus as putting out tons of messages, signaling strength, signaling they would shoot down the plane, you know, showing that they would do more military stuff. If speaker Pelosi visits Taiwan, said the Chinese foreign affairs spokesman. It would grossly interfere in China's internal affairs. Being quite boisterous. About this visit. He warned the Chinese military would never sit idly by. And again, part of this is just sort of what happens in China, right? When something goes wrong, you show your strength, you roar, a bit. But of course, the problem, everyone knows that China doesn't want at the moment of war with Taiwan because it doesn't feel like it's ready. And it would basically shift the entire narrative of what China is trying to do, which is a quote unquote peaceful rise, and could jeopardize its perhaps ultimate goal of being the world's top power, right? Effectively launches World War three. So it is for the U.S. in hopes of like, why not try to stop Pelosi from going? Especially if you do, you could make the Biden administration look weak. So that's a win win, but it is also mostly for the domestic audience of like, she is unhappy and he will respond strongly if this happened. So it's a bit of a dual game here. Why did Nancy Pelosi's plane go out of its way to avoid the South China Sea? Is this like polite symbolism? China wouldn't really shoot down speaker Pelosi's plane, would it? Probably not, but why take the risk? I think of it this way. I know it's not a perfect parallel, but I've flown to Korea a lot. We used to go over Russia. It doesn't now, but it was always the moment when you came down over the Arctic through Russia. And the fastest way to go over North Korean airspace. The plane avoids it. You go around North Korea and then you land at the airport. Part of it, of course, is North Korea hasn't granted access to Korean airlines. So why take the risk? Why go anywhere near that airspace? So again, not a perfect parallel, but why even take that risk in South China Sea and or you're trying to do a subtle signal that like, hey, I'm going to visit Taiwan. I'm not here to be provocative towards you, China. If China and Taiwan were to go to war. What would that look like? Basically what you're looking at is China is going to look to obliterate Taiwan with just a barrage of missiles, even before any troops show. There are just so many missiles already pointed to Taiwan right on the other side of the street. You would take out large parts of Taipei, a lot of its own missile systems, and you also want to do that because it's a pretty treacherous, you know, a 110 or so mile trip across the street. In Taiwan is a lot of its own missiles and advanced airplanes on its own. So if you're trying to you're basically trying to just sort of mow the grass, let's say before you even set foot on tight when you speeches, and Taiwan is fortified speeches already, but you know, there are some of them that can be landed on. And so what most people have sort of come out to in terms of war games is China would very likely win. Of course a lot depends on whether or not the U.S. and Japan and other countries get involved, but even so, likely China would win, but not necessarily the victory we're all thinking about, they would probably take the northern part of the island Taipei would probably still be in Taiwan's hands, but then you have currently already dangerous situation made way more dangerous and way more fraught by having China like right on the Taiwanese capital doorstep and probably always threatening even more and that gives China even greater leverage over this issue, but frankly, global politics.

"Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that? Yes. You are. That's a commitment we made. And I should note, president Joe Biden has three times, said the U.S. would defend Taiwan in case of an invasion, although his team is always locked it back. Today they insisted our policy has not changed, and that the president is simply committed to provide Taiwan with the military means to defend itself as he has in Ukraine. You know, it's sort of this fascinating moment where you know, especially former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo was like, hey, she should absolutely go. And then you've had the former defense secretary Mark Esper also for Trump, who was just there, basically saying, you know, the one China policy has outlet. It's usefulness. I think if the speaker wants to go, she should go. So again, not going there to back a Republican stance, but it's interesting the Republicans are backing her trip and Democrats are the ones who are sort of mostly worried about it. But I also want to reiterate, you know, Pelosi has bucked the Democratic Party for years on China and mostly. She's been a fierce advocate for small D democratic norms in that country for human rights and that those issues have become increasingly problematic as leadership continues the crackdown on Hong Kong. The detention, the forcible detention of Uighurs in Xinjiang, and his consolidation of power to the point that he could be leader for life. So her going to Taiwan in a moment when there's fear that eventually there could be an invasion. It's unsurprising that she feels that way and is doing this and that Republicans are backing her because she has been sort of on her hawkish states where China more I would say on where Republicans have longer been than where Democrats are. Alex, do you think Taiwanese leaders feel that they're running a risk with this visit or are they happy to have Nancy Pelosi there, even though it's drawn a lot of attention from China? I mean, a bit of both. I mean, I've talked to some Taiwanese officials and they are saying, look, you know, we're worried about what this means. There's no illusions that China is just going to sit this one out, right? They're expecting maybe missiles to be shot in the Taiwan strait near Taiwan itself. More planes, more ships near the island, perhaps some cyberattack or something. You know, there's tons of possibilities. So they're fearful, right? It's not like this will be, this will just move on by. And of course, it's not like war is going to break out because of this visit, but the chance of miss calculation rises. And that doesn't make anyone feel good. But the other part of it is like, yeah, hell yeah. We're happy to have Nancy Pelosi here. Because it shows how close America and Taiwan are now, you know, how much the U.S. really does seem to care about the plight of Taiwan and sort of all those other things. And sort of interesting because the inauguration Taiwan's lead representative, not ambassador, believe representative to the U.S., showed up there, which was the first time in a while. And then in early 2021, the U.S. ambassador to Palau went to Taiwan being the first U.S. envoy to be there since, you know, the USGS policy in 1979. So there's been sort of a closer relationship

"House speaker Nancy Pelosi landed in Taiwan earlier today. All right, I believe we are seeing Nancy Pelosi coming down. It was just de boarded the plane after arriving in Taiwan. Remember, this is the highest level visit by a U.S. official in 25 years coming at a very sensitive time. China does not want her to be there. China's foreign minister today said U.S. politicians who play with fire will come to no good end. The U.S. called that saber rattling, but it should be noted The White House didn't want her there either. So, what is Nancy Pelosi doing in Taiwan? What is she not doing in Taiwan? I don't expect her to like stand on a Taiwanese beach. And stare across the street with her arms folded and going, um, China. We're here, but I do sort of expect her to make as many, again, small deep democratic statements and show her support as possible because that ultimately is what this trip feels like it's about. That's coming up on today explained. There's merely listening to today's point. It's today explained I'm Noel king Alex ward longtime friend of the show, national security reporter for Politico. Why are so many people losing it over Nancy Pelosi being in Taiwan? Because of the escalation that it portends. There's necessarily for visit. It's more what could happen afterward. So you're seeing already escalation between China, whether sending planes to the middle of the Taiwan strait that separates Taiwanese island from Mainland China, you're seeing shift sale near that. That sort of border, the leader of China Xi Jinping say, hey, don't play with fire here. Then this comes amid a pretty tense moment, not already between the U.S. and China, but as the U.S. is trying to get China to stop helping or to not help, I should say, Russia and his war against Ukraine. And so having Nancy Pelosi be there, which would make her the first speaker to be there since 1997. There's no way around that. So then why is she there? What's the official reason she's given if all of this is stressing everyone out? Well, the thing is, she doesn't even give him official reason. When her office provided an itinerary of her visit, it didn't include Taiwan. Singapore mentioned South Korea mentioned Japan. There's no real reason why she's going. The unofficial reason that the best thing we can surmise from our own reporting and from others is that, you know, she's fearful. She will not be the speaker by this fall. And she has had a decades long. Stands pretty much China Hawkeye and standing up for human rights in China. She was in Tiananmen Square shortly thereafter the famous tank and the tank man moment saying that the U.S. stands for people of China, the U.S. national human rights. The three members of Congress had been optimistic about their human rights mission to China until they themselves went to Tiananmen Square. Democrats Nancy Pelosi from California and Ben Jones from Georgia and Republican John Miller of Washington staged their personal Tiananmen remembrance in front of the international media in a square full of Chinese tourists and security personnel. And so maybe this is sort of a bit of legacy furniture. Maybe this is in her final days. She went to Taiwan, stood up for its democracy, gave the middle finger to Chinese leader Xi Jinping and showed herself to be the true champion of democracy worldwide, not just in the U.S. that she fancies herself to be. Let's put all of this in some context. What is the United States official policy toward Taiwan? It is that we do not recognize its independence. We haven't done so since 1979, when Jimmy Carter officially made the U.S. recognized Mainland China with Beijing as its capital and Taiwan as a separate political entity. It basically break away state. The United States of America and the people to Republic of China have agreed to recognize each other. And to establish diplomatic relations as of January 1st, 1979. Within this context, the people of the United States will maintain cultural commercial and other unofficial relations with the people of Taiwan. However, it does recognize its ability to defend itself from would be invaders, which of course would be China and we have sold a billions of weapons and missiles and planes and all other kinds of things to Taiwan to help it defend itself and create what some analysts would call a porcupine quote unquote, which is an island so full of missiles so full of weapons that it would basically Frick China if it tried to take the island by force. What is China's policy toward Taiwan? And I mean both its official policy and also the way it behaves toward Taiwan. The official policy is that there is one China. And by the way, I should say that the U.S. believes in that too, that is the one China policy Taiwan as a separate entity. By June believes that Taipei is not its own capital that it belongs to China. And so the sort of official policy is that eventually there will be the reunification of the island. And so it's been decades in which sort of a democratic Taiwan has built up basically off the shores of a very communist China. And so the goal is perhaps economic integration, perhaps with change in Taiwan's own politics or just given enough time, there will be a reunification. The thing that worries a lot of people and a lot of people here in the U.S. especially is that China may grow impatient and especially with the authoritarian leader in Xi Jinping. And especially with other internal politics, dictators have politics too. We always forget seem to forget that. There are people that might consider she weak for allowing the U.S. to still defend Taiwan. So this is sort of leading to some concerns that China's gearing up for an invasion of Taiwan, not imminently not anytime soon. But soon enough, the Chinese timeline, let's say, and I'm making this up as like 20 years from now, while the American timeline, and of course the Taiwanese timeline is never do that. Okay, so Nancy Pelosi's visit is making a lot of people tense, did she get approval for this trip from President Biden? No, the opposite. Well, actually not even the opposite. Biden didn't call her as far as we know and say, please don't go. What Pelosi heard was a lot of anger through the media about what U.S. officials were thinking. White House officials, oh, why would we start another fight when we've got the Russia Ukraine thing going on? And we don't want China to actually start helping Russia in that clip. But what's been interesting, the administration stance has changed and changed in the sense that they're like, look, if she's going to go, we're going to do what we can to defend her. It's her right to go. We're never going to list kowtow to what a Chinese leader is saying. If she wants to go, we will not be intimidated. And this was said from The White House podium. Put simply. There is no reason for Beijing to turn a potential visit consistent with long-standing U.S. policy into some sort of crisis or conflict or use it as a pretext to increase aggressive military activity in or around the Taiwan strait. President Biden didn't want her to go, what about her Republican colleagues? Many of whom share her hawkishness on China. What do they think about this? They're delighted. It's a big deal. And look, let's not sure about this. It is a massive deal that she's going because what it shows is that it's the highest ranking Democrat in decades to show up in Taiwan. And it's the highest ranking American to show up in since 1997 in Taiwan. And Republicans like it because there has been sort of a shift in Republican thinking on Taiwan. And I should say among some Democrats as well, but most of the Republicans, they don't like that the U.S. has what's called a strategic ambiguity. Stands first Taiwan, which basically means that if China were to invade Taiwan, the U.S. is not going to signal what it's going to do. Whether it's going to defend Taiwan or whether it's not. Republicans have told me they've been very open about this and we should get rid of this. Get it done. We will defend Taiwan is what they want. Why make it into U.S.? And that's not what Pelosi is going to Taiwan to say, as far as we know, but it does sort of show a level of closeness and integration. That could lead eventually down the line to like, why would we

"That's that's definitely true. But i think one thing that the outcry about the only fans decision and that led to its reversal reminded me of like. Oh like sex work has also been changed by cove. It like now it now that it can be done. Virtually no that. It's calm normalized that you know. Sexual performance sexual sexually explicit content can be delivered virtually and people will pay for it like that feels like a positive like a move in a positive direction for sex workers who are oftentimes you know. They're they're part of the population that is more victimized by physical violence than other parts of the population and part of that is because when they're in person with somebody you know you can't really control what that person does so like. I think that the porn industry was also disrupted by By covert. And i think for the better i hope for the better i agree. I think as more power in the hands of the individual and less at the hands of institutions that can exploit people the internet. I hate when people say the internet isn't real life because it is but it does remove physical bear. It creates a physical barrier to violence that that pervades against sex workers. So i think that the internet has been really helpful in that respect. I know people who about their house and bought a house with the cash that they made up of only fans or you know when work was scarce or we're able to pay all of their bills an altered form of of income. That was that was really supplementary now. Full so i saw actually. That only fans had initially made the decision because banks were making noise about not wanting to process payments made to sex workers and it just yeah it just seemed just very. I mean it banks. Yes those people. Those people who have never patronized sex workers workers the people who are known for their morality. Upstanding the the people who are not from movies like wall street. I think like a million. Sex workers have done less harm to the world than ten bankers. Honestly a billion sex workers have done less harm to the world than ten bankers But also you know. I was thinking this is a great example of like you know these are individuals who are commodifying their own bodies and it's sort of like i feel like sometimes there's a real prudish resistance to women commodifying anything that male lead organizations and institutions are used to being able to modify like women are supposed to be giving the stuff away for free like there's a there's a poster in This in the workspace that i go to. There's a poster in the bathroom that said like the female lead food revolution. And i was like bitch. What do you mean like the entire world is the female lead food revolution. You know like women are the ones that cook were just expected to give it away for free so the revolution is women. Commodifying something that we are expected to give away. It also feels like it's like when men get uncomfortable because then women themselves aren't the commodity like a brand like hooters where it obviously as commodifying women sexuality but in a patriarchal male dominated business structure where it's like four the male gaze in men are profiting from it primarily. No men ever have a problem with that Like men never have a problem with women as the object. They only ever have a problem when then they get the pesky reminder that women are actually behind the big boobs that's us..

"Like texas and. florida have exploded. You know so you know. Maybe you could have bought a house for because the cost of living is different in different places. So you're coming in from new york and you're like oh my goodness. These houses in florida are so cheap that makes the houses go up if enough people do that in that area and it it affects people in the area too and like what they're able to get. I think austin dallas like all of those places. The the markets have exploded in the prices might aunt does real estate and so she was saying. Oh yeah the prices went by like one hundred grand like a house went from three hundred to four hundred grand just like in the time of covert and i was like. That's just wild like it's it's it's wild. Airbnb is distortion of the housing market. I think needs to be held accountable. i mean airbnb just began as a way for individuals. Make extra money like by renting out some like you know an extra bedroom may had and it was sort of a casual thing and it became so institutionalized that people aren't renting or selling apartment buildings because they're just using them for airbnb more profitable and that's a really screwed up bubble. That's ruining a lot of what should and could be liveable cities. He's an amazing. The way that like something has an intention and then something and then something else happens. That's like so fucked up that you wouldn't have thought about 'cause people's brains like work in that way you know like i did just always blows my mind that like you. Just somebody goes into it and was like oh you can rent out your garage. And it's like a now. It changes the entire market and has this tidal wave ripple effect and all other shaped like mickey mouse in the sorcerer's apprentice. He likes starts out with the and then all of a sudden it is way out of hand he's broom. These brooms are scary too. Little aaron and she will run out of the room when the brooms get too scary But no it's it's a total lake on. Like i feel like almost every little germ of an idea explodes into something like the ones that explode explode into something that accomplishes the opposite of what the germ of the idea did and sometimes and sometimes that's kind of funny like airbnb is like. Oh this is a way to like loosen up the hotel market and make it more portable and allow people to like integrate into the neighborhood. But really what it's doing is like eliminating the character of neighborhoods by making it impossible for like with a rental. It's like removing the fluidity from the rental market..

"She's so dumb and like she doesn't even know it like she's just so stupid and all like locate. It took this long. I was taking too long to get approved. Now it's approved and now they're like well. What about modern johnson expense like. Oh my god actually the fucking worst the worst get the win. That's approved you know I wanted to. I know and it's in. It's not at no cost to you. The american taxpayer Yeah i think my feelings about the fda approval in the moving of the goalposts were best summed up by a writer in michael gillette. Who is he wrote a really great memoir last year that i really loved But he tweeted so glad. All the people worried about the regression analysis of both the efficacy and safety outcome data wouldn't remain robust after taking into account selection bias in the negative impact of the statistical. Outliers can finally breathe the sigh of relief exhausting. These i mean these people don't care they just care about holding on to whatever like little strands of their belief system that they can to. We've a carpet of bullshit. I didn't think that one thing was very funny this week. I know that like the tragedy of cove is not funny the people that are going to the hospital and being like i didn't think i would get sick and then getting sick that's not. That's that's sad like there are people who who love those people who are going to miss those people. There are medical workers that are completely fucking tapped out and have had enough and those people. We have already asked too much for them. You know i agree. I've had a million times over. I feel terrible for the for people who are are stuck cleaning up. This mess is is not fair But what is funny. Is that Several members of the panel that were supposed to perform the final arizona audit had to not turn in the results of the zona audit because they all got cova all stab trombone..

"Was a little nervous about it when at the beginning of the week. A group of ten moderate democrats who call themselves the problem solvers caucus but really could call themselves. The problem seen only problem. They have ever. Salt are open slots on cnbc lake. That is the extent to be quite honest. Yes so the problem caucus rodent op-ed i think in the washington post about how heroic they were for for demanding that infrastructure with the care. Part of the biden plan teased out should be passed on. Its own anyway They all fell in line on tuesday. They all voted for the three point. Five trillion dollar budget reconciliation package. That pelosi needed them to four and So now that's advancing and now pelosi is also pledged to vote for the separate infrastructure. Bill they have promised to vote for by september twenty seventh which means that we now have like a kind of good idea for a timeline for when this is either going to get done or not or not yet so elissa. What do you make of the events of tuesday that happened in congress. And are you optimistic that this is actually gonna happen. I mean the events of tuesday were just to quote to quote. the movie. saint saint almost fire. They were greeted. Melodrama i mean. This was like not necessary. The democrats like like if democrats are in power and they're not going to govern like their empower. I mean like we the senate. The house Residency. like what are we doing. Which i think was the source of a lot of the yelling at the closed door caucus meeting yesterday. When i think it was reported that steny hoyer said that what the problem solvers caucus was doing was mutually self assured destruction. So look this is a budget blueprint. That they voted on. So they still have to figure out the actual budget of this three point five trillion dollar plan. And that's gonna take a lot of work that's gonna take a lot of work. It brings our friends. Joe manchin and Senator cinema back into the fold. And i think we know it's gonna take a lot but i think that we got this far. It's still it's still shows and continues to demonstrate that Nancy pelosi when she wants something she usually figures out a way to get it done the. I hope just having double chocolate ice cream for breakfast this morning. This if she didn't have it with a side of brownies. I don't know who has deserved it more. But you know the whole thing the whole problem solvers caucus. It was essentially a tantrum. The day through and i guess what they got for. It was sort of date certain in theory non-binding of voting on september. Twenty seven so. We'll see you one thing that i have been keeping an eye on that i enjoy. Seeing is the fact that bernie sanders budget chairman in the senate has been out like hitting the ground selling this plan and trying to explain to people in trump districts in democratic districts. Why it's so important. And i think that that is something that the democrats really have to get right in. The next couple of weeks is explaining to the american people that literally. This helps every single person like like we have to wipe donald trump from our brain where he literally only tried to pass bills that that impacted impacted people who voted for him. This will help everybody and democrats have to do a really good job of making that clear. And i think another thing that i've seen in this whole process it's really encouraging is in the past. I think when there are these big ideas that are bandied about on capitol hill..

"But it looks like this may be her last raw Getting this through. So she is very different interests from a democrat in some of those swing districts that's beginning or at the middle of their career and in who want to continue in their seat. You know for her. It's largely done. She'll get the credit and these guys may be holding the bag and i. I think that you know. Mrs pelosi knows well. This is the last chance the last gas to do something big in the house because she's not likely to retain her majority in the mid terms. I mean it's historically unlikely anyway even apart from the mistakes that joe biden has been making so I think there's a big conflict of interest between some of those people who are younger and mrs pelosi. Who's a lot older on her way out. One last little point here about timing There's another reason that. Nancy pelosi is pushing so hard to get this done this week and that is the democrats are increasingly worried about the white house's approval rating in the country. You know there's a very old Kind of mantra in washington or rule as it were that you know when your president is popular is dangerous for you to vote against him but when you're president is unpopular it is dangerous for you to vote for him and so there's a big worry at we're seeing joe biden's poll numbers drop. We're seeing afghanistan grow into an even bigger mess. And i think pelosi is very very concerned that if this gets pushed off to the end of august that the will among her party members will have really dissipated to go along with hugh spending blowout but kim where do you come down on this question of how much pelosi really cares about the political ramifications in twenty twenty two. I mean the president's party we all know at ch. Tens generally loses seats during the mid terms and binds approval rating is now two points underwater according to the realclearpolitics average and republicans. I'll throw in here. Also are in pretty good position for the redistricting after the census with the new census data and so two bills argument here. pelosi kency the right that writing on the wall and no. She's probably likely to retire. So i mean this her incentive to push through the big bill and They swing district moderates are going to have to deal with that and maybe they'll lose but That's that's the pelosi legacy pulled pelosi has always been willing to sacrifice her moderates..

"Sand and then just don't stick by it or find an easy escape and i think almost all the congressmen involved Have that escape. Hatch there the challenge for nancy pelosi is that her. Her democratic majority is so narrow she can only lose three votes and so if she has these nine centrists or swing state or some of them who who want the infrastructure to go first and say say that they will block the budget resolution That's a problem. And the group of progresses on the other side is even bigger. I mean it's a progressive caucus of i think ninety and they say that a majority of their members don't wanna move forward on infrastructure until the budget goes through so kim i mean how is nancy pelosi. She's a canny operator. How is she handling this. And what's the most likely outcome. One way to look at this. Is that nancy. Pelosi is doing the only thing that actually potentially could work for democrats. Because here's the problem which you just put your finger on is that let's just say she were to cave To these swings daters demands and tee up infrastructure. I it's not clear that she could actually pass that. That the house could pass it because while it has the definite support of those ten or so democrats that number might be larger overall because there are some other swing states that aren't necessarily part of this group But that are in favor of this bill and not in the progressive caucus so maybe you get like twenty boats But the progressive is of all vowed that they will vote down infrastructure unless they get their bigger budget resolution i so you essentially have to go to republicans she would had in hand and beg them for their support as a means of getting this over the finish line there are a lot of republicans who are opposed to this infrastructure. Bill because they think it's unnecessary and cost too much which is a decent point So i i just don't see the numbers for having that happen so you can make the argument..
