Pompeo: Chinese threat may be worse than a 'Cold War 2.0'
"US Secretary of state might compare has bill named middle of Oprah this week you warning that the threat from China good welby worse than that posed by the Soviet Union at the height of the cold. War Mr Pompeo's visits is taking in the Czech Republic Austria, Poland, and Slovenia. This is what he said yesterday. The contrast between free and unfree society has never been clear. Free nations must work together to confront authoritarian threats. Chief among those threats is the Chinese Communist Party and its drive to control people and information at our economies. When a Balkans correspondent guided Loni has been following his journey. Welcome back to the program guy good to have you with us. I wipe out the with Slovenia with no disrespect obviously to the nation itself. I think far enough I mean it's only two million people live here. So it's not exactly huge, but it is a NATO member and there is a family connection of course, Emma and Mr. Pompeo made that point in his opening remarks saying that he brought greetings for Melania trump who is noticeably absent from her homeland. She was born in San Nitsa as Melania canals and she doesn't come back here very often. But Mr Pompey's said she was very envious about him visiting nurse Levin in particular Lake bled where he was doing his news conference but. The rather factors as well. So Slovenia is at at the moment and this is I wouldn't say was out of character, but it's just a matter of where how the political winds blowing here at the moment at the moment in the Prime Minister's office you've got somebody who thinks Mr trump is rather smashing fallow where prime, minister. Yannis Yansha uses twitter almost as enthusiastically as MR trump and spends quite a lot of that time. Enthusiastically, retweeting Mr Trump's tweets. So if you're going to have a friendly audience in Europe at the moment of your representative of the trump administration then Slovenia's an office place to stop off so more than simply passing on greetings from floaters and enjoying a slap up lunch at Lake bled we've just heard there a clip from Secretary of State Pompeo. Making China the real focus of his visit. He really did, and you only speak for about three or four minutes yesterday bend and I think at least two and a half of those minutes were spent really having a good old dig on against China before that. He was speaking about well, he was actually signing a declaration with the Foreign Minister of Slovenia about five G. Security, and this is all part of pushing what the trump administration calls. They're clean network program, and this is an attack on Chinese. Telecom. Companies Chinese tech companies hallway in particular Zeti threatening for the Balkan they've both been very high profile targets of the trump administration and leave you signing up to this five of this clean network program. You'll basically making a commitment, you'll knocking to use any untrustworthy. Vendors in your five G. Systems and the United States is saying it wouldn't have any of these vendors anywhere near any of its embassies went allowed anywhere near any of this State Department. Systems. A lot of come countries, of course are not signing up to this, but Slovenia has and it's got its five G. Network installed by. As of last month, take that way well has replied China Chinese commentators of wounded central and eastern Europe shouldn't be fooled. What would describes Mike pompeo embracing an entirely entirely cold war mindset it is. It is a dangerous thing. Isn't it when you start going into the likes of the Czech, Republic and Poland and Slovenia, and START TALKING ABOUT IDEOLOGICAL THREATS Yes I'm you know he really has gone the full evil empire on? Am You when you talk about Cold War rhetoric either way that he's he's talking really as I mean, as you heard in the clip there, it sounds like something from the nineteen eighties a talks again chief among these threats as the. Chinese. Communist. Party. It's drive to control people and. Information and our economies, and it's it's again talking about freedom loving people and becoming a five G. Clean country as Slovenia has done today as solidifies staff position. In this fight, the tide is turning against the Chinese Communist Party in its efforts to restrict freedom for all of us and I think what's interesting guys of course he's not saying China he's specifically saying. The Chinese Communist, party so he's criticizing the the system of government and control rather than country and the people itself, and that's I suppose the GATT out card But this is the way that the trump administration is going I recommend everyone to have a a good read of the clean network program just to see what they're saying in that and. Quite apart from anything else it does make it clear and not that it's part of the trump administration's drive and it's very interesting phrasing not the United States, not the State Department but the trump administration. So a spot of electioneering perhaps

How to Generate a Weekly Flow of Inbound Client Leads with Tom Poland
"Tom. What's up to fire nation and sure something interesting about yourself that most people don't know. Who was that fire nation? Some, that's kind of interesting. The most people don't know is that in September. Two Thousand Sixteen I had a brain hemorrhage and fifty percent of the people had this particular type of brain damage die. And there's another forty one percent that apparently brain damaged and I had three the suck us over ten days. I survived a thriving y that is something I definitely did not know in you are thriving Tom and fire nation. That's exactly why we brought him on the Mike today because as I shared during the intro in talk about generating a weekly flow of inbound new clients leads in. Tom, you've written a trilogy of bestsellers on lead. Zoology. So let's start with you sharing the benefits of Liza algae. Best Way I can do that is paint a picture. So let's let's the picture what changes in your life when someone puts this place is pretty simple. Let's let's take. Let's take Monday morning you wake up you sipping coffee, you open your laptop. Tablet using. And you see. Bookings that have come in from people who are highly qualified who WanNa know more about working with you. That's the scenario and you have message. You haven't had to follow the miles that had booked time to have a talk with you about becoming client, and when you have that meeting was not going to be convincing designing GONNA be confirming because they've already created pre motivated prequalified in terms working they just want us to tell them that it's the right thing to do. That's that's the outcome. That's the benefit of lead dodgy I mean fire nation that's the dream I. Mean You WanNa create a business you want To create a system, you want to have the tools in place where you're waking up and having qualified people that want to know more about you, the one Qassim, your content that want to work with you, and now you've made quite a distinction Tom between marketing and selling. So I defined the two and then break down this distinction marketing is where we generally and selling us where we can better and as someone quite said, nothing happens in a business still selling salt until you've got a prospect and you converted. That person into a Klein and they pay some money we don't have anything we we can't do anything. We can't do our research development county supplies we got by a south. So true nothing happens in a business something sold, but nothing is sold until leads generated. So lead Gen is at the point of the pointy end of any business if you're not generating leads and if you don't have predictive control of the generation of not only the quantity of the caller slates, then you future is blitz. That's is precarious. To say the least. So let's make that distinction between marketing and selling. I mean you just went ahead and kind of define the to what the differences are. But what exactly do you want to make sure fire nation gets when it comes to their marketing and then when it comes to their selling like what's that process look like? So what don't want people to get is that essentially what Peter Drucker said the great management? Guru he said you know the goal of the goal of marketing is to make selling redundant. The way I said is that cell has what you have to do your marketing socks and I got my teeth selling life insurance as as a as a twenty one year old over four years ago I was selling life insurance I would make money morning and call people didn't WanNa. Hear from me. I had to be incredibly good selling because my marketing absolutely shocked. So. All the people go into the sows conversion courses in the south training courses and the whatever type of lettuce you know I'm twisting wise to close the Salad di. They all become redundant relevant. If you get ready your marketing because marketing is going to set it up. So that effective marketing, we'll set it up so that people want to actually work with you before you've actually spoken with him on at all and that that's the big distinction is at first of all inititally jet under control. Selling completely pointless. Now, under convert ride, you know leads coming to prospects and secondly when you get really good at marketing, you don't need to do and he's selling anyhow If if I've done the mocking right people aren't going to say to me well I to think about if I've done my marketing ride, people won't say Will County Florida done. My marketing ride people are going to be motivated and wanted to guys do consoles I have clients. is not about convincing because convincing selling it's about confirming because of done hopefully the marketing right in the first place.
The 'Seductive Lure' of Authoritarianism
"And Applebaum joins us. Now from London, she is the author of the Pulitzer Prize Winning Gulag History and her new book is called twilight of democracy, the seductive lure of authoritarianism and thank you so much for being here. Thanks for having me, I want to start with a very basic language question because people are throwing around a lot of terms, these days, authoritarianism, dictatorship, demagoguery, autocracy, fascism, and sort of get to an understanding of what we exactly mean and what you need. Europe by authoritarianism. Book is about democracies really and it's about people and political movements in democracies who become dissatisfied with their own political systems and seek to change radically. And I. Agree with you that it's hard to sometimes describe what it is that they want to go towards whether it's a one party state or a liberal democracy or A. Not necessarily dictatorship. In which there's less openness and less competition, and so you know my book is about that. It's about the disappointment that some people feel with democracy and the draw towards more authoritarianism more centralized, less competitive, less open political systems. You're not so much concerned in this book with the specifics of the autocrats of our time, the Erdo ones and Putin's, and Orban's so much as you are with the people who vote for them side with them enable them. Why did you decide to look at it from that angle, but actually it's explicitly. None of book about voters I mean I think the reason why people vote for populist or authoritarian parties are various and I you know that sort of separate subject but you're right. It is a book about journalists spin doctors, intellectuals, and the people who sometimes help create these movements who create the ideas behind them, and then sometimes sell those ideas to the general public. Poorly I read about the because those are people I know not all of them are my close friends, but some of them are people have run into. The World I know and I thought it would be useful therefore for me to try and explain them in an an understand what happened to them over the last twenty years I wanted aired Juan because. About journalists and intellectuals he someone who and I think we could say this. About Putin von and others as well. These are people who have suppressed. The Press Ltd journalists closed down newspapers imprisoned writers who are the people on the other side who are the two of these other journalists and intellectuals who are supporting someone like Oregon. For example, in Turkey, will some of them are people who have become convinced. There's only one form of Turkish patriotism and that it's a nationalist form of patriotism and that anybody who has a different vision of Turkey vision of Turkey this integrated with Europe or a Turkey that secular those people are traders to. The country and their voices don't deserve to be heard. Some of the will have other motives. Some of them will be opportunists. Some of them will see the chance of if you get on the Government's bandwagon and you get on state media than its way to make a career, some of the will like the proximity to power. There's a range of reasons actually that's one of the themes of the book is, is the various different kinds of attractions that these kinds of movements have for people like that. So I'm probably betraying a little bit of my prejudice. As journalists and someone in the book world that the pamphleteer is the bloggers, the spin-doctors, the producer of TV programs in creators of memes. These are people that I can easily see supporting some of these autocrats I. Guess I'm interested in what circumstances in which countries it's writers intellectuals and and what's behind that I mean look they've always been nationalist intellectuals and intellectuals WHO and writers who supported dictatorships. well, into the twentieth century one of the themes of the book one of the kind of threads that I run through it is an analysis that was written in the first half of the twentieth century by French writer Julien Benda called it was called the clerks, the treason of the intellectuals, and it's a book about intellectuals who align themselves politically and who abandoned their search for truth or their object Tivi in order to be part of political movement. So this urge to do that and to be to play a political role or to be the voice sir to provide the ideas for movement is I mean I think it's as old as writing, public speaking itself. Talk about how you've seen that in Poland where you normally spend most of your time. So the book actually the idea for the book came from my reflections about the history of Poland. Over the last thirty years in especially some of the people who I felt aligned with in the nine hundred ninety s there was a kind of center right anticommunist movement that was I mean it wasn't ever cohesive, but it was the people within it certainly spoke to one another in the nineties who all had a similar vision of Poland and who all hoped for Poland it would be part of Europe and part of NATO and would be. Some kind of democracy. And connected world. Some of those people now have acquired a very different vision of Poland and they. Hope to pull, it becomes kind of Catholic nationalist one party state. They've been part of or supporters of a government that has cracked down on independent media and may be doing. So further that uses openly homophobic and anti Semitic slogans in its election campaigns and that I think worse of all really has sought to pack the courts in order to remove the independence of judges and the transformation of those people is one of the subjects of the. First part of the book, and again I think their motives are various I mean some of them are personal. They personally didn't like the political system that emerged in the nineties and two thousands and they they are. They didn't fight until they had a personal role in it. Some people felt police losing something they. They developed a stellar sometimes mythical nostalgia for some other version of the country that they preferred may have existed sometime in the past. Poland's cases to pre-communist past you know some of them felt that Poland was losing its identity as emergency urban there multiple reasons but the the overall impulse is one that I think Americans should be aware of too because the you know the attraction of authoritarianism, the attraction of the one party state or the attraction of liberalism I think can be felt in lots of countries including our own
U.S. to withdraw almost 12,000 troops from Germany in sweeping reorganization
"Defense Secretary Mark Esper says about 12,000 U. S. Troops are going to be withdrawn from Germany. About half will return home while the rest will go to other European nations. President Trump has blasted Germany, claiming it fails to meet defense spending commitments for NATO. Esper says pulling US troops is not punishment. Moving forces out of central Europe, Germany, where they had been since the Cold War. Uh, since I first traveled during the early 19 eighties, and we're now moving, we're following in many ways.

However, some Republican lawmakers air condemning the U. S troop withdrawal and say it is a gift to

Trump's tanking in the polls
"Anzalone, welcome to campaign HQ David Blah always good to hear your voice. Yeah, you and I met I back in Iowa back in the eighties, not to date ourselves, but the answer. Let me start with this. Let's talk about swing voters for minute. Obviously Joe Biden is doing. Incredibly well in public polls I'd assume he's also doing well in your own polling correct. Yeah I think that it's fair to say that. We're seeing a lot of what the public polls are showing that you know. This is in some ways I. Mean you've seen you've been through a lot of presidential campaigns, and as you said, we've been in this together for over thirty years, so we've seen a lot of historical data and quite frankly what we're seeing right in the public bowls and internal is. Is pretty historic right, so let's start with what we might consider. The Swing Voter Side of the ledger, and then we'll talk about some of the turn out registration targets, so you know you have been part of campaigns world. We Lost White Seniors by twenty points. We a static. You guys right now. white seniors or tied of which means with seniors overall your head. Talk about that like why is that? How much of that do you think it'd be maintained over the next fifteen weeks? I think that there's a couple of things you know. When we take a look at swing, voters There's actually like four really important groups that. You know everyone wants to compare how Biden's doing public Poland's with Hillary but what's really interesting about key group set of moved from sixteen. Is that Biden's not only doing much better and leading in most polling with Voters over sixty five, but he's leading with suburbanites. He's leading with independence, and he's leading with college voters, and so those are like four really important groups that not only did trump win, but is you know Romney won right and so listen? These presidential candidates. Have Different coalition I mean people like to talk about the Obama coalition in. It's important. But Biden's coalition, GonNa look different and clearly part of this started in two thousand, eighteen where we saw suburban women Super White Women College Educated Women but also college educated men really move. I mean take a look at Gretchen Whitmer who is a a a client of ours in places like Oakland County Right She also wanted to Comb County Reagan Democrats which is interesting, which also biting one in the primary, so we're seeing these swing. Voters these groups that Biden is bringing around that is different than the coalitions that we've seen. Seen in the past while at the same time narrowing margins within the Republican base with white voters and also rural voters, and keeping on par with our democratic base, right with young voters in women, and so You know when you, of course you know two thousand eight you. You saw this I. Mean when you are moving, and you have a moment, or if you sustain that moment, you tend to do well almost everywhere, meaning that even in the Republican base voters, rural voters and things like that, you tend to narrow the margins, and they're on margins. In tough places. Is just as important as doing well in some of these other swing areas. Now just specifically unseen Yars I. Listen, you know we see trump's jump rating just getting worse and worse on handling the coronavirus eppendorf pandemic clearly seniors Vulnerable the most at risk, and I think they're reacting directly to that risk in terms of feeling like he didn't get serious enough. He didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan and now with the kind of the surge feel like he's put his head in the sand and I think it's just cost him dearly with that largest age bracket the motor sixty five, and over the last Democratic presidential candidate to win sixty five and over. Is Al Gore so that Kinda gives you an idea. Of! How important this is! Yeah, reminded. Every election is its unique beast so on whether it's seniors suburban voters, you mentioned both college educated women and men Joe Biden right now, doing extremely well. Two questions for you John Do you think he's close to his ceiling there and the job really for your campaign is to maintain those numbers. Do you think there's room to grow? And secondly just how durable do think it is? Do you think that some of these voters are already locked in and is going to be really hard for trump to dislodge them? You get a feeling that where we are today. is very difficult for trump and listen first of all we should say we. We all have a collective PTSD right from two thousand sixteen, and so none of us are getting overseas, but at the same time you know you have to acknowledge the good polls because you know, there's a couple of things that are different from where Joe Biden is from past democratic nominees, including Barack Obama and and twelve. In that, he's also at fifty percent. Right at this point in time whatever what hundred four days and you know there's been no Democrat or Republican candidate you go all the way back to two thousand who's reached that threshold and so you know that's really import. The other part is is that Joe. Biden isn't scary to voters. I mean that's one reason he's leaving with independence. And if you take a look at I don't know the NBC Paul I think is is a good example or one of the most recent ones where I think it's the Fox foxhole. We're Biden is actually above water popularity. Naturally trump is underwater, but trump's very unfavorable is at forty seven percents, and binding I. Think is at thirty one. There's win been one thing that I think when they write about Joe Biden in the primary and the general election is the stability of his vote, right? It really hasn't moved that much. I mean trump's has moved down during the primary I mean. We're biden kind of started at the beginning. He ended at the end. It was very stable. Other people moved all around, but Joe Biden was incredibly stable and I think. Think that we're GONNA see that same dynamic here and we have really in the last several months. The Joe Biden's vote has been incredibly stable it's in a couple of points to the fifty percent mark. trump has moved down right and that is that is a good thing but the stability is important for Joe Biden. One is how voters view him and to how voters view trump. You know there was the I think it was the B. Poll that showed fifty percent of voter said there was no chance at all that they would vote for trump, and so your question is you know, will biden's numbers remain stable, and there just seems to be a universe of voter that is completely cut off from trump and it's because of how people you him prior. Let's think about this. Let's dissect prior to the pandemic. People you know we always heard the same thing. Whether it was you know for for Biden. Her for US Senate race for a congressional race. Is that people disliked? His behavior is tweeting his bowling. He was a jerk They basically just didn't like him as a human being, but hey, you know it's not like some of his agenda and his policies. They like how he took on. The median shook things up in Washington, DC. Now they're problem with him. Is Not only behavior how he reacted in a protest and things like that doubling down. Of Racism but their main problem is. Is that they feel that he failed the leadership test on the three crises, whether it was the health and crisis, whether it was the police brutality protests crisis, and now the economic crisis, which is hurting his economic numbers, and so they're now viewing him His biggest problem isn't just his behavior which they haven't forgotten. It's his lack of leadership or his mishandling of these crisis, so three and a half years in their judging him president. President. They're not judging him as a personality. That is his biggest problem right now, and you know I don't think that you know that's going to change. I think that we have a couple more crises potentially coming very soon, college kids and K. through twelve kids start going to school and mid August and you know it's GonNa be It's going to be really a a really tense time. I think it's GonNa. Be a problem for a lot of communities, a lot of states, a lot of holds and that is the problem. They're going to squarely put. On trump because he didn't take this series at the beginning, you didn't listen to medical experts. He didn't have a plan. And that's a problem I mean. We have more crises coming quite frankly. Yeah, now that's that's a great point and your point about his very under favorable I mean if he's sailing into voting time in late September and October with forty seven percent, unfavorable lombardo grounds He's really up against a wall there so John. I, think one of the mistakes. Sometimes you can make whether it's politics. Are Businesses your opponent? Your competition does something puts. Puts out, an ad or new strategy and you know you're like well. That's dumb and of course I've learned like you better. Take a minute and think through why they think it's smart right, but on this suburban thing what what strikes it's almost like trump got a briefing saying you're hemorrhaging the suburbs and he's like Ooh I. Know what I'll say. I'M GONNA say Joe Biden is going to destroy the so like. Do you see any evidence that that tactic which seems to be front and Center for trump, and his campaign now has any chance of succeeding. Listen I think that you know you and I have been through a lot of campaigns, and when you're in a campaign where you're behind, and you're behind eight or ten points, what do you do you just kinda start throwing things at the wall and he tends to throw things at the wall I. Mean You know in one week? He's hitting us on. China I mean all paid TV the next week. He's in his on. You Know Nafta now. Now, he didn't on defunding the police and so they try a lot of different things out right but the fact is is that trump was up on TV in the battleground states for a couple of months prior awesome. You sure what the number is, but I think it's close to fifty million dollars. We never saw the numbers. Move I. Mean you see that in the public calling right? I mean our numbers actually got better. His numbers got worse even though he was on TV by himself and very high levels as well as with his allies, and so you know now. We're on TV. So now we're in a position to you. Know have our own message. Ever Own Voice of voters see what Biden's about What's his agenda and his vision and again we don't see any deterioration a matter of fact, if the last ten days are any indication and again we don't you know. We don't get over our skis on this but the. The. Number of polls have showed this in double digits. is a good place to be. It doesn't mean that we're not gonNA work hard doesn't mean we don't take anything for granted. We know that we just gotTa fight for every vote and we know that it's going to get closer because that's what thing, but that's just. The natural physics of presidential races but I think that again it goes to the opponent meaning Joe Biden. clearly isn't Hillary Clinton. You were talking about very unfavorable in two thousand sixteen. Trump's very unfavorable was forty seven percent, and Hillary's was forty five percents, so there was a lesser of two evils dynamic. Going on, you always see this kind of analysis of what they call double haters, people who dislike both candidate. Well you can't call them double haters this time because they are. They hate trump, but they just kinda just like Joe. Biden are they dislike politics? Right is so his very unfavorable with that group is you know literally I? Think it's a quarter of trump's, and he wins that group by forty plus points depending on the pulled that you see, and that's actually really important again. They don't see Joe Biden scary. They see him as a compassionate relatable. Guy you know they keep the fact that he's lunch Pail Joe and he's a guy. WHO's GONNA look out. For Working Families and he is, you know someone that one. The trump and their allies throw punches. you know they? They're not sticking like their sticking and past presidential campaign. Right, so I WANNA. Talk about filling in the blanks on Joe. Biden, what you guys have started to do, but I want on I. WanNa talk about battlegrounds from and so you made an important point. which is you know when you've got momentum? Momentum in a campaign particularly national campaign. You see you see you see progress everywhere. It's just not in a particular state or region, so I a couple of questions one. Are you seeing with swing voters in particular? Are you seeing the same strength for Joe Biden in the south in the Midwest and the West and I guess secondly I would've thought. Let's say ninety days ago hundred twenty days ago, trump's floors, floor and battlegrounds. Forty six. It looks like it may be lower. So what do you think is I? Mean I agree with you that you know when you see a poll right now. That shows Biden fifty forty. You know the other ten percents gotta go somewhere. And you know probably more of that comes to trump it goes to you guys because you're bumping up against a pretty pretty good and healthy ceiling, but I'm curious kind of what where? Where you see both, is there uniformity in terms of the movement across the country and secondly kind of? Where do you see trump's floor now? Yeah, well, I do think that there's again. We you know you can talk about Joe Biden's feeling, but really when you look at it, historically all the way back to two thousand is just presidential candidates ceilings I mean there's not a lot of presidential candidates who've gotten over fifty percent. Who won right and so the fact that we're in this divided country and there are third party. Candidates who siphoned off universe. Hopefully it won't be as much as two thousand sixteen, and we don't think that it will be but the ceiling is is is almost as close to fifty or a little above for almost everyone right I mean that just kinda historically has how it's happened. Happened in the battleground states like you, you say whether it's Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Florida Arizona I, mean he's having trouble getting to the mid forties right I, mean he in places like Michigan and Pennsylvania in Wisconsin in the real clear politics or the fivethirtyeight average of polls, he stood at forty, one and forty two percent now Florida in Arizona and in North Carolina or Kinda GonNa Act like Florida. And North Carolina in Arizona, they're they're always going to be tighter. Right I mean like Scott Ours no always says Florida tight and that's true now we haven't. You in a lead that's above the margin of error. That hasn't happened very often. That, you and I have done enough Florida. politics polling to know that that is a state that tends to tighten up again. I think that we have. An advantage there because of how we're doing with seniors, and we're competing David I. Mean you know it's like this campaign is going to look a lot like you to you like two thousand eight because of where we're competing? The balanced expansion. In the media markets in Florida, well, where do you WanNa? See I mean I. Remember Two thousand like it was yesterday we were. We were up on TV at high levels. Competing with McCain wear Panama City Talahassee. Jacksonville Gainesville, we were fighting the fight in the panhandle. Right and you know. I mean protect protect I four and all that type of stuff. You GotTa do well Miami Dade Palm Beach etc, but when you see a campaign competing against the Republican in the Republican areas That's what you gotTA. Do to win a place like Florida, and a lot of campaigns often have to make the cost benefit analysis, or make the bad decisions, and this campaign, because it's been under great leadership and the reason, a lot of money gives you the ability to run the race. You need to run to win, right? So I want to just ask you quickly third party because you mentioned it and you live through this horror in two thousand sixteen, where trump could win states like Wisconsin with forty seven point two percent of the vote because the third party vote share was. Higher than historical averages right now in your research and it seems to be true in public research. You're seeing that those numbers may revert more to two percent or less that we've gotten used to write, and that's huge because your ceiling is higher than trump's. I would guess at this point right and so I think that I think that this is how I look at that and you know I mean when you pull when you add third party candidates two point, they always get more on the pole than they actually do on election day right I mean. That's just kind of the dynamic, and so you know you have to. You have to test things a bunch of different ways. But I think there's one thing that we all kind of instinctively know that in two thousand sixteen. There were how a lot of voters Bernie voters etc. WHO stayed at home? WHO VOTED FOR GARY? Johnston voted for Jill Stein and ninety nine percent of them who vote did one of those three things were ninety nine percent. Sure that Hillary Clinton was going to be president, and so they were doing a protests about. those voters now know what's at stake. And they're You know their their enthusiasm. If you will to get vote or get, trump out of office is incredibly high. It's an incredibly intense, and so I think that that dynamic and quite frankly Bernie Sanders and his campaign and the Joe Biden and his campaign have worked together on a plethora of issues. will make the dynamics here much different so we don't see that bleed, and and internally we see we see that you know. Joe Biden just has better with Bernie Voters Than Hillary Clinton did in two thousand sixteen well does tighten up. That's going to be such an important dynamic. So, You mentioned You know the Biden campaign. has a very expansive electoral map again. Something we might not have expected months ago. and you know those are pretty weighty decisions. You're involved in those decisions with General. Molly Dylan and Donald other leadership in the campaign, but John when you think about the places that look now plausible. Not Win them, but you know Georgia in other poll out in Texas today publicly had Biden Upright one Ohio Iowa those are likely not going to be in. My view is two hundred seventy electoral vote, but do you think there's a scenario where you could get surprise? Where maybe you don't win in north, Carolina and Georgia, or is there really a stack ranking on these states? Well as you know, there's always a stack ranking and you were at the you know. Know Genesis in two thousand twelve of analytics right, and so there's a there's a lot of simulations things that you know you and I didn't learn about growing up in this business and there's and there's tipping points, states and things like that. I think that at the end of the day again. The leadership of this campaign is incredibly focused and disciplined, and you can see where we're buying TV. It's public and it's always you know reported on. You know we're very focused on the six battleground states, and you know until you know, they move on to another state. We will be focused on those six states in a very disciplined way, because that is the ball game I think that what's difficult for trump is that he's not only communicating in those six days. He is playing defense right now in Ohio and Iowa, so he is spending a lot of money in Ohio in Iowa. Just protecting himself he's also up in Nevada right, which I don't understand, but you know, right. Right and so she's the one that is actually expanding a lot of money. and I can't say in an undisciplined way. He is in trouble, so he has to expand his hip protected. He has to expand but right now. the Joe Biden campaign is very disciplined and very focused and you know will there be expansion states. You know there's a big map on the wall just like there is you know in two thousand, eight and twelve and sixteen, but you gotta be careful, and you have to be very analytical about doing that.
Pompeo Warns Energy Majors Over New Russian Gas Pipelines
"United States efforts to stop Russia from completing a pipeline that would funnel natural gas to Europe. At a press conference Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo threatened sanctions against any individual or company that helps complete the Nord Stream to it's a clear warning to companies aiding and abetting Russia's malign influence projects. I will not be tolerated. Get out now. Or risk of the consequences. Jennifer Start with the basics. What are we talking about? And why is the us opposed to this pipeline? Sure. So the North Dream, too. Is this gas pipeline? It's a Russian gas project. It's basically this long pipeline that's going to carry gas from from Russia to Germany and Central Europe. It's being built by a company that's owned by by Gazprom, Russia's state run gas company. And it's basically you know Russia's attempt to you know. Broadened its reach into the European gas market on the U. S, on the other hand, sees it very clearly as a Russian attempt to exploit European dependence on Russian energy. And, you know, sees this as a threat to the transatlantic alliance and things like that, and making Europe kind of more beholden to Russia. On DSO. So that's kind of the basics here on DH. What's going on is that the U. S. Has essentially threatened to impose sanctions on on any companies that are helping Russia build this pipeline. So So again, while this is being built by Gazprom, the Russia gas company half of the funding for the projects is actually coming from five European energy group so Shell you Nipper, Om VI and several others. And so the U. S. Is essentially threatening to impose sanctions on these companies for helping Russia and you know, it's It's very much the US trying to kind of push Russia back. You've heard President Trump say this many times, you know, criticizing Germany directly and Angela Merkel for you know their dependence on Russian energy. And so it's very much part of kind of that that push but at the same time, you know this is this is throwing up very clear rifts between us and its European allies. Because Germany very much wants this pipeline to go through. Yes, they're dependent on Russian gas, but They are dependent on Russia. Guess so. They need it right. So so if it's causing some very serious riffs in the transatlantic alliance, even though the kind of point is too Help improve the transatlantic alliance. So it's this really big rift and it's not really clear what's goingto happen because if the U. S goes through with this, they're essentially sanctioning European companies, which is a huge You know, kind of escalation. The US sanctioning companies in Allied countries, Literal Allies, Treaty allies, and so it's It's a really big deal. You know, I recently back when we were still allowed to travel in the before times spent a few days reporting in Poland and it was a huge conference topic of conversation there. Poland Being a very close ally of the U. S not wanting You have North stream kind of go through it, and it would have to you. And so it's a very huge, huge issue in Europe. Even though most Americans probably don't even think about it. Give us some context. David about you know why this pipeline is so important to countries in Europe. So basically, Russia is guaranteeing of steady and relatively cheap flow of energy into Europe. So this is you know something that Angela Merkel has signed off on despite some skepticism in Germany, and certainly lots of skepticism in Washington, and they've already made this decision to do it right. The project is most of the way done and so that you know, there's a lot of frustration in Europe with with the US trying to derail this project that's already Ah, a lot of the way complete. But then there's just the same frustration in Washington saying, Hey, we warned you about this. At the very beginning. We said this was a bad idea and you kept doing it, so it has been a kind of it's been a thorn in the side of You know that relationship for four years now? Really? And Trump has particularly enjoyed. I think calling out. Angela Merkel is someone who had taken a tough line on Russia. Over Ukraine but had not over this issue. So he points out the hypocrisy there. Wanna quickly touch on another story out
A Little History- Based On A True Story
"They were talking about. Songs that are based on true stories. And, What's interesting about this subject? Is that a lot of times? When you see a movie that says based on a true story, it literally might have one aspect of an event that they base it on, but when it's the song, it's actually a it seems like it's more valid. There's more. There's less at stake. That film. And there's more accuracy than movies claim to be sometimes. So. We're covering I. Think they're seven songs here I realize you probably left went out and he did it on purpose. Which one would be the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon. Lightfoot Never bring that up in polite society, his based on a true event. It is one of the worst songs and don't get me wrong. I like Gordon Life. She said it. You heard it here. I like Gordon. Lightfoot care that song is. What are the worst songs ever anyway? please understand with some of these things like my very first one. There's literally no way I can tell you the entire story, so I'm having to kind of give you guys the abridged version, and so please forgive me for that, because the first one is waiting for the worms by Pink Floyd, which is about the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust. So right like starting right off the bat. There is literally no way in a single episode of a podcast. Can I explain to you the Nazi Holocaust? But what I will say is that there was this war called World War Two. In the thirties and the forties as we all know guys there. There's mass extermination and for years Jewish people and other other people like the Romani Gypsies. Homosexuals were sent to forced labor camps. And Ghettos and then this thirties in Europe, a yeah, and in nineteen, forty two, they were actually deported to extermination camps, or or other kind of forced labour camps, whereas like Auschwitz was was. A labor camp and the death camp we were there on. Didn't go on our honeymoon, but we went to. Visit Europe we went to Poland actually. Yeah, it was It was one of the most important things that I feel like I. Ever made us do I'm sorry, we. We were in. Leipzig, Germany for our son's graduation and. We decided that since we were so close to Poland, which was about? It's about a six hour drive. Didn't turn out to be. Another story altogether. There's like one road to Poland. But we we rented a car. We drove to Poland. And we went to Auschwitz and. It, if you ever have the opportunity to go experience at, please do because it's one of the most important things you can do is to just be in that space and exist in that space. And just close your eyes and just feel. And it was one of the most. I hate touching. But it was one those moments where I could feel the past. Choking me. And it's overwhelming. It's incredibly overwhelming and. Just, the the the size the scope the scale that they did things on. Were saying and it was a machine. And so. Auschwitz had. A cyclone be they would lead people into the gas chambers. Drop the cyclone being and. I think it would take maybe seven minutes, and then they would just go in clear the bodies. And put them into the. The furnaces and they're six camps that were purely extermination camps, and trebling was one of them that they didn't actually think. Treblinka existed because they had before. It, they had a chance to liberate. The literally tore everything down and planted trees. And they didn't think that it existed, but they found infrastructure like in the ground, and then they found mass. Graves and things like that well speaking of research on the Second World War the series. Band of brothers is probably at the top of things to see and my gosh episode I'm going to site. Is your favorite episode nine why we fight his capture, the discovery of this and the meaning of what it was, and they do a great job of sort of keeping in that time-frame, instead of looking back with the knowledge that we have now just imagine. Coming out of the woods in finding this. Cluster of buildings and there's barbed wire, and there's people and you're not sure what it is and I think they just did a masterful job catching the how these soldiers fell when they when they stumbled across this camp. Yeah,
What Susan Rice thinks she could bring to a Biden administration
"I'm Jonathan. Kaye part, and this is Cape up in former President Barack. Obama's first term Susan Rice was the US ambassador to the United Nations. In the second term, she was Obama's National Security Advisor. Today Susan Rice as a private citizen author of tough love, my story of the things worth fighting for and under serious consideration to be Joe. Biden presidential, running name. Here what she has to say about that President Trump's handling of the coronavirus pandemic, and whether the president is a national security threat to the United States in the Special Cape Up Life episode right now. Welcome back for the third time to the Cape Up podcast embassador Susan Rice welcome. Thanks so much great to be with you. So leery about one minute before we came on air here, there was breaking news that trump administration drops plan to deport international students in online classes, and your reaction was to applaud explained chance. Well, it was such a misguided. Stupid. Decision that they took in the first place. International students are critical part of our university structure. Our college campuses they bring talent. They bring diversity. They bring resources and to lock them out, simply because their campuses have decided by virtue of the pandemic they need to. Conduct classes, online in the fall was just calloused an. Extraordinarily counterproductive I haven't had a chance to read in detail the reporting on it, but it looks like. The trump administration saw their effort to defend this policy in court was unlikely to succeed and they backed down. And it seems to be a victory for our colleges and universities are students across this country and across the world, because so much of our appeal, our competitiveness, our soft power depends on people around the world, wanting to come here and learn and study bring their skills and talents. So this is a good day. Ambassador. Let's keep talking about foreign policy. Originally, I was going to start this interview talking about the election in Poland and the news of the reelection of Poland's president. Duda and he's an ally of president. Trump's and a supporter of the right wing Law and Justice Party he's been condemned by the e, U and democratic watchdogs, and just wondering how if you think president trump's behavior in the farm policies space his support for leaders like Duda, as contributed to the rise of illiberal nationalist in autocratic regimes around the world. Well certainly legitimize the rise of elected autocrats, and we see that increasingly. Parts of the World Poland is the most recent example it's unfortunate because Poland is an important part of NATO an important part of the EU, but it is moving in a direction where it's values, and its approach are completely out of step with the other members of the alliance and it it suggested. Particularly, when it comes to the EU. Their position could be in jeopardy down the road if if there is a further move towards anti democratic policies and structures. Ambassador is it possible for the alliance to even survive if the super in the alliance, the United States doesn't even bother to champion those small D, democratic ideals that have been the cement for Alliance for more than seven decades. All the NATO alliance is under duress. Because of president trump's callous disregard for the purposes and the interest of this alliance, our alliance with NATO is built on common values, but it's also built on interest that we stand together as North American allies North Atlantic allies. And Atlantic. And Europe broadly to counter threats to our sovereignty and territorial integrity is in alliance at which come chiefly from Russian. And when the United States, Questions the value of our lines turns it into a transactional arrangement when president trump decides to unilaterally withdraw third of our horses from Germany without even consulting with the German government and calls our adversaries from Russia to China to North Korea while putting our allies in a very difficult position, it does great damage to the alliance in that's one of the many reasons why we need change I don't think NATO, and our leadership role in the world can withstand for more years of Donald Trump. And, that's why we need change, and we need leadership in the form of Joe Biden who comes out of the bipartisan American tradition of supporting our alliances of understanding who our friends are, and who are adversaries are, and that our leadership and our strength in the world is enhanced when we can bring partners and allies with us.

"No Sir claritin liquor for boys port for men, but he who aspires to be a hero smiling mystery brandy in the first place. Brandy is most grateful to the Palette and then brandy will do soonest for a man. Drinking can do for him. They all indeed few who able to drink brandy. That is a power rather to be wishful than attained Samuel Johnson. Good evening and welcome to the bar. In the second of my series on the history of spirits I've chosen to investigate brandy. Typically drunk is an after dinner digestif. GRANDY spirit produced traditionally by distilling wine. The basics of distillation have been with us for a very long time, but it wasn't until the ninth century that it was described in the manner. We know today. Eventually, it spread to Italy on the rest of the continent of Europe. By the Fifteenth Century to began to be used all master still variety of basis into spirits. And slowly various national drinks from Volta to whiskey developed. Is Not entirely clear. Wine began being fortified into brandy. In some jurisdictions, wine was taxed volume, and by distilling the wine into brandy. It was possible to avoid tax and mix it with water afterwards. High alcohol content also made the wine travel veteran long voyages, and was therefore used a method of preservation. Anyone, who has visited a distiller can tell you. Aging in wooden casks can have a significant effect on the taste of distilled drink with the aroma of the casks, being drawn out by the alcohol over time. The name Brandy comes from the Dutch word, but I'm D- wine meaning the wine. The name is apt as most brandies made by applying heat originally from open flames two wine. While brandies are usually made from wine or other fermented fruit juices. Can actually be distilled any liquid that contains sugar. All the too quiet that the liquid bailout ferment and should be heated past the boiling point of water. Almost every country has their own national brandy, many of which are not made from wine. GRAPPA in Italy is made from grape skins. slivovitz in Poland made, from plums. Shoot you in Japan is made from rice and born in the united. States is made from corn. Brandy of course is better known as Scotch Whisky. That being said the vast majority of brandies are traditionally made from wine. It is not strange. Therefore, the best and most famous brandies tend to be associated with well known and well respected wine regions. The ALMANAC can cognac regions are among the most famous brandy produces. ALMANAC is the oldest brandy distilled in France and in the past was consumed Fritz therapeutic benefits. In the Fourteenth Century Prior Vitale. Full Cardinal wrote the detach forty choose. It enlivened the spirit. If taken immoderation recalls, the past memory renders men joyous preserves youth and delays senility. Cognac exhibits an abundance of qualities, fruit, subtle rumors wolf intensity, and above all complexity with thousands of flavors, all stemming from predominantly just one grape variety. While you will likely have heard of a few major brands such as running Mata. It is the variety and the small families that have been distilling with secrets passed down through the generations that make these spirits so interesting. Aficionados flocked to the region to obtain different vintages from a wide range of distillers who each have their own unique family history. You may have heard of Cherry Brandy as well. It is not as the name might suggest a fruit brandy obtained by distillation referred to in France's. Rather most cherry brandies in fact, liqueurs with most produces mass rating, their own choice of cherries with the bay spirit of vodka before the addition of other enhancing flavours. Unlike with Jin where a lot of innovation in recent years led to a boom in the market, brandy brands pride themselves on the tradition of the drink. However brand is still trying to align itself with younger drinkers as in some ways that previous marketing has set them up a drink for the sophisticated older drinker.

"We need countries to take responsibility. China must regulate these wet markets. They are been there. I've gone into those markets myself. Taking pictures and looked at them. They are dangerous. I never saw any refrigeration. Any ice any hand washing the animals are slaughtered right there on the table or on the on the ground. They will sit there until somebody buys them. And you've got animals of every species you can imagine from around the world not just in China species that would normally never interact jammed in next to each other trading all of their viruses all of bacteria with avian influenza went over there you see chickens jammed is elevated about five feet high. The reason they poop which is a rich source of nitrogen. The pigs eat that the pigs poop and it runs into the aqua farms so that the fish have that nitrogen just. It's a petri dish. For how these kinds of things happen. And then I think we're just GONNA have to take seriously that there are risks and that we need to be prepared and we need to be prepared in big ways. You know almost every business I know in a new would understand this better than me Ryan they are. They have to shave expenses. Everything is just in time inventory and we have in. My opinion made the mistake of farming out way too much to China into other countries. Because we think it's cheaper well all those gains we had because we thought it was cheaper over. The last thirty twenty years are erased with something like this so we need to have a stable inventory. We need to have probably through our government store houses of the equipment that we're going to need if you're going to collect taxes from every American than you have to be able to provide in that time of need for every American yet seems like a reasonable request. Yes to you you know. It's easy to spend other people's money ineffectively. But if you are going to use those dollars then you ought to leverage them to their maximum potential if you know do that provide mass and gowns and gloves for our frontline healthcare workers. I have no problem paying taxes for something like that. I have problems paying taxes. And Finding out that it's been squandered or the people in the government have accessed information. I don't act on that to enrich themselves yes yes. I'm glad that you brought that up. Not Not somewhere. I had planned on going but it is disheartening to say the least choice words for this situation but when you you know you engage in insider trading based on patient that isn't privy to anybody else and you're supposed to be the ones protecting the public serving the public. Yeah there's a huge huge moral issue with that you know what we need is a wall of shame. Well I'm I'm I'm just worried. A lot of these people don't have any shame so it wouldn't do good good. You're probably right. I also think there's a level of arrogance and not just in our politicians like we're losing two now but even just just us in the way that we believe that nothing could ever happen to us in that is coming to to bite out but right now absolutely true One of the things I I'd like to do if if you like to go. This direction is is sort of talked to. What can people do in their families to protect themselves? That'd be great. That'd be deprecate so so the way I think about. This is the same way you would think about any war any endeavor. You're going to embark on you. Think about the context and what are can textually appropriate layers of protection. Okay so where? I live when nighttime comes. I locked my front door in back. Door two layers of protection. I closed my first floor windows. Second layer protection. I flip outside light on three layers of protection. That's all I need. You live in other areas of the country. You might have an alarm system for levels now you might have window bars five a panic button. Six layers of protection. So what is that for you? Based on where you live in your family's context you haven't older parent living with you a a child that has a medical problem and you do two things first of all. These are simple but they are profound. In terms of actionable items. You cannot get infected with this virus. It is impossible to get infected with this virus. If you don't breathe it in or introduce it into your body by contaminated hands so think what that means. When you're going to go out in public social distancing if need be you can make your own cloth mask. Does it work? It helps because you won't agree in. Yeah well you won't believe in those large respiratory droplets and it's more than anything. It's a memory aid to not put your fingers on your face. Second thing is handwashing if you go to Youtube and you look up Dr Poland Jimmy Kimmel. We do a skit on there. That shows people how to wash their hands. We put a substance on their hands. That's invisible but it glows under a black light and they're shocked at how poorly they wash their hands. And what you actually have to do. Hand Washing is the best. Second best is hand sanitizer. Now here's the problem with hand washing. I have never ever and just to be clear. Ever seen a layperson. Wash their hands properly but they all think they do so. That's the problem. The same thing applies to hand sanitizer. They think they know how to use. Hand sanitizer the ones. That work are the ones that are sixty to seventy percent or more alcohol. And you have to when you think about it. The riskiest thing in terms of touching contaminated surface and then infecting. Yourself are your fingers. Nobody washes the fingertips or uses hand. Sanitizer very well on your back. Yeah they they do something like this rather than than this and then rubbing into each individual finger and even using enough of it you need a quarter to half dollar sides of it to really coat your hands and let it air dry. Wipe it off on the hands on a contaminated towel after you get done with. It defeated the purpose of using right. So those are the two immediate layers social distancing a third that we do to protect ourselves then in your unique circumstances you decide what to do in my home. You don't enter my home until you sanitize your hands We don't leave a store without sanitizing our hands. Nobody comes into my home that sick or coughing or has a fever. Unless it's Mike Family member and then I will take care of her and we do the reasonable things that scientists tell us are reasonable to do and they work. They're really effective. I think a lot of people overlook this because of the simplicity of it. We haven't tendency of doing that if it's not if it's not complex and complicated and sophisticated than it it surely doesn't work. Yeah it's not high tech. Yeah Right. Now that's good feedback and something that I think is very important. I've got a friend here in Maine. They're they're a an apparel and lifestyle company all manufactured in the USA keys. Rash guards pants boots. That make a lot of different stuff. But the shutdown most of their operation in those things and they've started making these Fabric mass that go and grew sleeve that you can actually put some sort of a mask like either an ninety five or some other other type of mask. Do Greg's year good for them. Yeah yeah that's another good thing as we see in times of hardship we see people's true colors and we see how much good is actually in the world and how many people are willing to step up and exactly so it's a it's a war effort. We're in this together. Actually you you you you put your finger on some that. I've been saying where with this generation our generation. We have to move from me to we. And that's how we'll do best. That's how we always do best. That's why we're built for community. Well said well said Dr Poland. I want to be respectful of your time. I know you're going for a run here in the next several minutes and I want to let you get get onto your and do that Do you want to ask you a couple of questions? We left on one a little bit earlier. But what does it mean to be a Man? You know my first response to that is. That's probably in fact I'm going to do this. I am GONNA write that on a three by five card taped on my bathroom window because I think that's a question. I need to ask myself every day. I think that that's a profound though as simple a profound question for me a man. First of all analyzes himself knows himself. What am I strength in? What are my weaknesses? And then I work to correct my weaknesses and I have many of them. I'm a human being and I- falter. I got a recognize those be able to accept the consequences of those do better next time and I think by being a man like that you can then lead your family and again I think that is in the physical the mental and the spiritual realm and I I raise my children that way. They got to see firsthand. We didn't hide anything from them whether it's finances whether it's what I do at work what's happening in the military You know not scaring them inappropriately short I if they were young kids but I wanted them to to be realistic and I wanted them to see. Dad's working hard and dad's not going to be home right now for this reason and they grow up to be responsible adults so so. I think that that self knowledge that self management that mentoring is an important part of being a Man. You start with you you you move to your family to your God and then to your neighbor and your community and that's not always easy. I I recognize that I'm not trying to be pollyannaish. But you know a man. Shares out of his plenty. A man helps those who can't help themselves and a man recognizes that. That's a duty not something. I'm doing to get glory or Pat Myself on the back at a duty of a Man. That's really powerful. I really appreciate that perspective. Thank you very much thank you. Well what is the best way to connect with you stay in touch? I know you're putting out some video. Content sounds like on instagram with the help of Yawn. I'll have seen a little bit on YouTube. Where do we go to follow? Yeah I think if you go to instagram Dr Greg. Poland also a youtube channel. Dr Greg Poland. We'll probably try to do another instagram. Live Qna Ryan would have really enjoyed this with you. It's the first time I've gotten to meet you instead of just watching So I'd I'd love to do another show with you. Because things are changing and if we can get that information to listeners than they can actionaid information solidly and then another another time. Graham that would be grout okay and then another time like can come back and talk from the perspective of physician of. How do you take care of yourself and your family? What does that actually look? Like definitely yeah. I'd be honored to be able to do that as we wind down. I want to thank you for your time. Your expertise obviously your willingness and sacrifice to be on the front lines of this. I know this is a very is an interesting situation to put it mildly. And I'm glad to know there's people like you on the front lines willing to engage in and do something about it. Well thank you and thanks for helping to get knowledge out. That's really our best. Weapon is knowledge definitely and. I'M GONNA make sure to send an email and thank him for the The introduction and if he does that along as well and appreciate her sure all right thanks Dr Pulley already. Blessed blessing stay safe origins. There you go my conversation with Dr Gregory Poland. I hope you enjoyed that episode and I hope he found it useful. There was some new information that I had heard in there and quite honestly. This is one of my favorite podcasts. It was one of my favorite discussions over the past five years because we talked about something that obviously is very relevant and current and needs to be addressed now but then we went in different directions to that I thought was very insightful and also valuable to talk about so if you would make sure you follow me and Dr Poland on Instagram. He gave you his instagram handle. And where you can connect with him. He's actually gonNA come on and do an instagram. Live with me in in the coming weeks. So make sure you subscribed or following.
"poland" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"A doctor? Can I burn my two year old to our house in a neighborhood that has a pool a community pool? Obviously we're not touching any of the lounge chairs or anything but can I bring my daughter to the pool safely. If we're not touching you know we don't. We don't have any evidence that you know. Unlike something like polio. Back in the fifties or other water borne diseases that corona virus would be would be spread that way. The issue is this How likely is your kids to be in the pool and inhale water where I see people sneezing and coughing and water getting into their nose or mouth and they spit out into the water. How likely are you to come in con- into contact with that right away depends on whether the pools coordinated or salt water so? I personally don't think that's a great idea. I don't think it's very likely that you can sort of in a bubble walk into that community pool. Dunked yourself awhile in the water get out not touch anything not come into contact with anybody. I I just think. That's an avoidable risk factor. What are some of the best questions? You're getting what are the questions? Were not asking that we should one of them is just how serious. This is You know when you when you look at it Just two days ago in the US we had about thirty thousand cases. We've got almost fifty five thousand cases. Two days later we had four hundred dead. That's doubled in two days and I think people don't have a full appreciation that and this is a bit of a difficult concept but it goes this way what you're seeing now reflects events. That happened two to four weeks ago so we are not even at the peak of this thing yet so to begin talking about well. We'RE GONNA I. I've done this for two weeks. I'M GONNA start to relax. A little bit would be mistake because there is this two to four week lag period between people getting exposed getting symptomatic getting sick enough to no longer be outside or or expose themselves to other people and then finally have having to be admitted to the hospital. I think the other thing is this false notion. Younger people are not at risk. It's true that they're not dying. At the level people my age and older are but fifty percents of the cases in the state of New York for example are between the ages of eighteen and forty nine forty percent of the first twenty five hundred patients admitted to hospitals in the US. Were between eighteen and fifty so this this misperception that. I'm young I'm invincible. I'm not gonNA have any any particular problems. Just not true. How bad do you project this getting? Well it's really hard to know and I get asked that a lot in it gives me new of sympathy for the weather man but you know let me just give you the outside scenario. These are the speedy fees numbers. Okay not mind the CDC estimate is that if we do not engage in the strict social distancing handwashing everything we've talked about by December. We could have a hundred and sixty two. Two hundred million Americans infected with twenty one million of them sick enough to be hospitalized in two hundred thousand to one point seven million debt. So let's let's not fool ourselves. This is not just the flu. This is more serious than that. It is affecting People and being transmitted in growing exponentially it has not mutated in any negative way but it nonetheless causes considerable morbidity and mortality especially in the older people or people who have chronic medical problems. The one the one other thing I would caution against is you hear a lot of really Leaning statements about drugs that are being tried that worked in such and such disease etc. Please be really careful about that. These have to go through clinical trials before we know that they help and not cause harm just because the drug helps in one disease doesn't mean that it won't harm in another disease it has to be carefully studied first. Stugotz one last question for Dr Greg Poland. Yeah dock with all that being said and understanding the serious nature of. What's going on here? Should we be playing the Valero Open? Golf Talk I mean I don't I don't know a lot about that. I've hardly had time to watch TV or or hear any media. But I think the principle is this. You do not want to bring groups of people together where you're going to magnify and amplify transmission that we had all the founder. It's called Valero. It's like two of the top fifty in the world. I mean it's golf. We're not near each other. Give us your comfort is if you can maintain you know six to ten foot distance. Go for it yes thank you Dr. We appreciate the time all right guys. Thanks Duck yes. This is from Tiger King. Right here. I am told that it's lips thank you. We will get some facts on his documentary. We've got an expert coming on in ten minutes. Who really embedded himself in the life of all of these crazy people who are being featured in tiger king. Apparently this is a lot of lip. Synching though Mike Ryan and a lot of other people have been fooled by this guy. Singing voice wait a second. Yeah that's singing. Voice isn't coming out of JOE EXOTIC coming out of Joe Exotic. I refuse to believe then. Voice of an angel his lyrics define us in the next hour. We will find out why it is STU gods. His father yelled at him. And yes we will get to that in a little bit. But as I said we've been talking about this tiger king documentary. Put IT on the poll. Guillermo please at Lebatardshow did this thing. Not Get real for you until three hundred sixty five waffle house waffle house restaurant closed. But what are some of the things got you want to know because we've been talking about this Netflix documentary? It's about exotic animal. Owners big cat owners primarily and they're just crazy people crazy people we've never had. I think what's happening here is a lot of us are being enlighten to what this world is. And it's just basically the private zoo world and it doesn't seem like you can exist in and be any kind of sane. So what kind of questions do you want to know? Fr from this gentleman who has been immersed in all of these worlds for a while now and his super informed. Because we're GONNA talk to him in about ten minutes. Well I have to episodes to go so this could be tricky for me but I am interested. I want more information on this angel investor. And what happens with him? He apparently comes in to save the day to save. Joe EXOTICA I want to know if the EXOTICA EXOTICA an exotic erotica just did their Hashtag looking at him. Just looking at him. I understand why it is. You would arrive at that conclusion because he is as erotic as he is exotic right. I want to know if the animal reserve that wife. If she actually did kill her husband like Joe Joe Proclaim. She did many many times. They made a video about it. So I'm interested in that as well. Okay so again. It's it's part comedy and it's also about a murder attempt and possibly a disappearance as well that's next..

"The party retained national control but had not only failed to achieve a constitutional majority. It lost the upper house of parliament. This losing the ability to pass new laws lavisa the left-wing coalition went from having no so representatives in parliament to having forty five. Here's Yaroslav Quiz editor in chief of the centrist media think-tank Cutura Lebron. We have quite quite a new political narrative now that seems to be more pluralistic than for the last four years when we had only the opposition that was mainly from the camp of the previous government more or less center-right and at the conservative nationalist. Right from the low injustice. So now it it's more colorful crease. Give some credit to the activism of the Polish opposition but there's something else afoot right before the elections critique of politicians a a couple other organizations released a study called political cynicism the case of Poland which found that law and Justice voters are not entirely aligned behind the idea of unchecked majority for their party after the elections. I checked back in with eager. Who explained that? These voters are likely responsible for law injustices. Electoral setbacks backs more trust in political pluralism van in their own party so it is not the opposition or the opposition on voter alter who stopped law and justice from being a constitutional majority. It's a law and justice voter. Who stopped them? Turns out that law and justice photos like all voters very in the WHYS and wherefores of their party. Affiliation the so-called old Lon justice electorate the hardliners. Maybe it'd be motivated by their loathing for intellectuals Europe and urban elites but the new law and Justice voters those whose votes decided this election are largely in it for the money especially the government's ever expanding child benefit and in the run up to the most recent election yet more they announced they would distribute an an extra month's pension a kind of so-called thirteenth month to all pensioners and Applebaum in the end they got about forty three percent of the vote of which I'd say about half is is still true believers and half are people who liked the spending policy but obviously these popular populist policies. Come at a price. I mean it's come at the cost of investment. They've stopped investing in roads. They've stopped investing in the healthcare system. They're raising taxes. All of which calls into question how long this particular strategy will continue to pay off a lot and just voters are transactional and transactional. Voters can shift for a better deal or a better story. The ill liberal narrative seized and shaped by law and justice of exceptionalism and cultural encroachment.

Something like this did not happen since eighteen century century if something to be celebrated it is that I think now you have a lot of young citizens dot to Ooh not remember communism. I know that the communist past has been manipulated in a lot of different ways and particularly anti communist sentiment. I'm wondering if you you think there's value in actually reclaiming some of that communist past. I tend to think after all those experiments with political history that we should remember more that it was a political mistake of liberals to leave the historical issues to the right. What could be decision is stew rather to teach how complex police chief three in the Twentieth Century Wars and how we ended up eventually if this wonderful event event of entering the European Union and we should start to teach it to the new generations as a history that is very complex one and then maybe we could have some conclusions for the future? I mean I would not say that. We're definitely heading authoritarianism and Applebaum nor would I say that liberal democracy has one and we'll definitely beat this thing often. It'll be fine. I mean this this I think is now. What politics is the assumption that we had it finished with those arguments and that we'd all learn the lessons of the Second World War or whatever piece of history one point?
