'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King
"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news.

Muscling up to China and 25 years since Srebrenica
"Tom Switzer, he and welcome to another episode off between the lines now today on the program will be commemorating the twenty fifth anniversary of Europe's worst massacre since the Holocaust in ninety, ninety, five more than eight thousand people died in Shrimp Nitsa. The town was supposed to be a U N protected safe haven in the vicious civil war that tore Yugoslav apart instead the civilians ended up being massacred by Bosnian Serbs. Were lightning fast with their superior weapons. They easily overran the lightly. I'm Bosnian government troops and the token full civilian peacekeepers. The UN's Valley to protect the civilians inspired Washington to launch unilateral action against Serbia and end the civil war. Would things be the same today now? That's later in the program, but first defense. Last week the Morrison. Government launched a defence strategy and force structure review now the move signals a major shift away from the strategy outlined in the last defence white paper. Remember that just four years ago in two thousand sixteen. It plotted out Australia's strategic costs for the next decade. But that White Paper has as we know been rapidly overtaken by Vince covert China or that now the new review has promised two hundred and seventy billion dollars over the next decade to enhance Australia's defence capabilities with renewed focus on areas like Saba and spice capabilities and the possible development of hop sonic weapons will be fitting aircraft with long-range anti-ship missiles, increasing underwater surveillance and boosting fuel ammunitions reserves. Now, underscoring the seriousness of the shift, the Prime Minister even drew comparisons to the nineteen thirties and the lead up to world. War Two that period of the nineteen thirties. Is Been Something I've been revisiting on a very regular basis and when you connect by the economic challenges and the global uncertainty. It can be very haunting, but is the money too much or not enough is going to all the right places, and we'll do enough to safeguard Australia from China's increasing assertiveness and is rapidly growing military capabilities. What's the role of Australia's diplomacy? And all of this will joining me to discuss this at three distinguished guests. By skill is professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University Holiday Bites. Thank you good to be here Melissa Conley. Tar is a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. Hi There Melissa could to speak again Tom. And Pay. The Jennings is executive director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. Tom No. Can you talk us through the top of scenarios and potential conflicts that the defense review is preparing us for the scenario that the review is focusing on is one involving a high end conventional conflict, so I've gone to the days of stabilization operations in t more Counterterrorism operations in Afghanistan This document is preparing foresight on onsite conflict. Involving countries that have sophisticated military forces. And, of course, the document doesn't say. I don't think it would be reasonable to expect it to say. That China is the problem. But let me tell you China is the problem that is the now neoplasia competitive that way of thinking about when we think about what's adequate in terms of the topic of military capability we need to have. and to does reflect to change. From past years Tom I recall when I started by defense career, we were thinking much more about the risks presented by Indonesia, and the so called low level in cushions in the northwest. Of course, that's no longer features in anyone's strategic thinking. Really it's about China and the risks that the People's Republic is presenting to all of its neighbors in abroad since in the Indo Pacific region and beyond I cabinet crudely putting it some sites laying the groundwork for fortress Australia US sign. This is preparing us to join a potential use LID. Containment slash war against China for example to protect Taiwan Peter Jennings. I think that is it covers a spectrum of possibilities. One possibility which I think is Epson you were in terms of language of the document is that we might conceivably end up having to face military conflict without being able to rely on the direct combat support of the United States, and that's what leads to discussions around extra stockpiling munitions and fuel insightful. But I think in general terms. Yes, the expectation is that Australia. Through its history has been a country that forms coalitions usually have like minded partners, the share the same types of objectives. And the the plan will design the Defense Force. Really gives us the capacity to do that with Rachel Ellis lecture, example, Japan but also with our traditional ally the United States okay bates skill. You've recently completed a review of China's defense capabilities and its recent military modernization, specifically looking at the implications for Australia Wind you expect the Peo- The People's Liberation Army and its navy. When do you expect them to have the capability to project power as far as Australia annual Pacific knives, well in many respects Tom, they already can I mean they have the long range missile capabilities to do that? Know as a from a standoff position launched from their own from their own homeland against hours. But what I think, the the new strategy is looking at is really the development of capability over the next ten fifteen twenty years, and that's by the Chinese own own acknowledged calendar that they would be able to by that time of mass, a large enough capability, both in terms of its long range strike, you know striking from their own homeland, but also bill to project. Project Power passed the so-called first and second island change and being a position to more directly threatened through those platforms Australian security. So you know we're talking ten or fifteen year window here and I think given the time it does take to try and respond to develop the the deterrent and defense capabilities for Australia. That's that's you know that's in some ways a short window. for Australia to be mobilizing in reaction Melissa Tali. What's the role of a strong diplomacy and all these well I think it needs to be growl. And one of the concerns when we look at the deteriorating strategic environment is we think all that's a defense problem? And so when the prime minister launches the strategic update with those comparisons with the nineteen thirties. It pushes US toward seeing in purely military terms but we don't just want to say things in that security lands, we want to think about all of the parts about national power projection, so that's diplomacy and development as well as defense I think if if people thought about it I think what we invest in all three strongly, but that's not where it is if you look at federal budget fifty. Fifty nine billion to defense and less than seven billion to diplomacy and development together the lowest point with ahead in our history and I think we missing that opportunity. If we don't take US seriously, the way that diplomacy and development can shape things in the world so I was struck. Today was a defendant looking at the latest poll on what are the major concerns that Australians have at the moment of the top threats in the world and the first five, a role nontraditional that drought, environment, disaster, climate change, pandemics, and downtown, global economy, and those places where you know military spending isn't going to help shape that environment. So we need to have an effect on those. We need to be thinking much more about what we can do in the diplomacy and development to mind Peter Jennings. What would you say in to Melissa's observations? Because they reflect a certain mindset that that perhaps we should be focused more on non state actors rather than say China for instance well, I think all of these you know threats that have to be taken seriously. I'm and simply because we're living in the middle of a pandemic for example, doesn't the climate change is gone away in this no longer going to present a problem to us. I guess what I'd say. Is that the you know the five things Melissa listed? That were in the featured in the low e Poland terms of popular concerns. Are also the things which could. In different ways late to the risks of conflict escalating in the Indo Pacific region generally so You know my my view, please while I would like to see spending on diplomacy increased. While I. Say Development Assistance is being something which is effectively the United soft in of Australian power, and the military is the hot end of Australian power. I think. The message against all of these areas is that we have just been underinvesting for decades underinvesting for decades, so we're we're all. High fiving ourselves at just reaching about two percent of gross national product, being spent on defense, but that is compared to what we spending in cold or years, which was sometimes between three and a half percent in four percent of rustic product. So what we have grown used to Tom I would say is. Free written on the United. States code tiles of security for for decades. We've dramatically under. Invested in the things that we need to do to strengthen Australia's position, not just militarily, but also diplomat. A now. We're rather surprised to hear the news that Gosh the bill is a lot more expensive than we really thought. It was only if you've got that confidence in the US. and. In fact, the whole trump stories, the story of the Americans really big being fed up with the rest of the world, thinking that the US can fund the bill for their security, so we're going to have to do more and I think we're going to have to do it against multiplicity of areas not. Justin sought the defense organization. We'll some scholars such as you want and James Current from the University of Sydney. They say that this document sounds a lot like an acknowledgement that the US might not always be there to help us out. By are we starting to plan for more independent Australian defense posture I think it would be a wise move to keep that option open when you think of the capabilities that the Chinese developing in which do have a direct pose a direct threat to Australia or could do so. In many respects, the I think the types of threats that you might not expect an immediate or even timely response on the part of the United States what I'm thinking here. Cyber capabilities is a huge priority for the Chinese. We already know what they see the sort of capability. They can wield against Australia and that's not the sort of thing you can expect a kind of cavalry to. Lead the charge from from Washington to come to Australia's defence slowly long range strike capability on the part of the Chinese capability. They already have in which are going to continue to develop. which could threaten Australia down the road now? These are capabilities that I think that Australia's going to have to develop their own defenses for. They can certainly do that with United States, but again it's not necessarily the sort of threat that we would expect some sort of traditional ally joint response not to make it well. Some of are in listeners will email me and they'll say that if Uncle Sam struggles to police. It's own CDs. Melissa. How on Earth Can Uncle Sam Police? The Asia Pacific region in the face of a rising China. What's your sense about us staying power in the next decade or two in look? It's difficult One of the things that strategic update looks at is more threats to the global rules order, and unfortunately the you know, the US is part of that. the US is not along with the strategies interest on things like global trading system, and a number of international issues like global health where we would say you need to be supporting. A Global Response that said I don't think the strategic update will be read negatively in. Washington, it's my guess. it very clearly couched in terms that I think the US will lock about Australia contributing more and having more self. that could be seen as a statement that we think that the US might not have outback, but can also be seen as something that the US has been for for a long time. I particularly liked a few elements of the update things like making sure that we have. You know material ammunition You know that aren't going to be disrupted. Buckle supply trying having more capability eight industrial cut suffering capability here antiques fuel reserves, which is not as long sane as an issue for us, so I mean those are things that are worth investing in. Regardless of US resolve because as we've seen from COVID, we know that supply chain can be disrupted very quickly and easily, and it's worth having eligibilities. Cepeda Jennings bite skill and Melissa Conley Toilet and Melissa. The Pacific step up last year. That realigned Australia's development budget to deal with some of the strategic challenges posed by China in the Pacific Do you think it goes far enough? The step up was followed recently by strategies new International Development Policy Partnerships for recovery, and that's made it very clear that strategies focus should be on the Pacific and also southeast. Asia including. Indonesia and team August. I think that has a very clear statement about what we want. In the region of being entrusted trusted development partner and influencing those societies that we think positive for four region. Again you're going to. You're going to say you. Hear this from me all the time, but again the problem is that we not really making much invasive lunch, so partnerships for recovery head no new money it talked about the massive challenges that covered as as creating for for the for the Pacific, and for for our region broadly, and the only funding announcement was that we're going to repurpose the money. We would have spent on sending Australian. Volunteers in scholarship holders. And we're GONNA use that so I I suppose I. Feel a little bit with all the areas, not actually include district update in that as well that what we've seen through the foreign policy, White Paper and International Development Policy through to to the defense. Strategic Updike is. We talk about how. how? What a time! These these frosty leaving a contested difficult awful environment that we've now got to leave in and the Dow L. Easy Times over, and then we say, and we're not gonNA. Give any new money so I mean the defense announcement is essentially just that we're going to continue to you know, extrapolate out the money that was planned to be spent in the twenty twenty six, and we're going to extrapolate that out to twenty thirty terabytes skill. Do we risk getting into a bidding war for influence in the Pacific? I don't know if it's a risk. If it is a risk worth worth taking. I mean obviously the Pacific region is so extremely important Australia's future. Both for for defense reasons for regional engagement for diplomatic reasons, developing reasons and the like. so It's quite possible that we're entering in a more competitive phase with China in this. SITES WRIST BYTES I'm talking about more the budgetary concerns he because in the wake of the Corona Virus Crosses. There'll be serious limits on how we can spend on these things scholley. Yes, there is and party left to be be developed for that, but you know when you're talking about your own backyard. I mean I I. I don't think it's the kind of country that can simply. Pretended it's by itself getting back pay to Jennings to the region, generally in the rise of what. Angus Campbell is of the Defence Force he's talked about the rise of political warfare, the idea of grey zone warfare things like cyber attacks, economic coercion influence operations that fall below the traditional threshold of war. He says we need a whole of government response to it. I, you seeing that whole of government approach happening in Campbell, or is this Manley focus on defense and the spy agency so far Peter Jennings. It probably is focused on the national security agency's Tom. That's not too surprising because you'd expect them to sort of pick up on the risks I. But General Campbell is right. It does need to be all government is. There's a whole lot of things happening there that simply cannot and should not be done by defense organizations. and. I think that realization is slowly dawning. Along as both of the speakers have said that actually ladyship comes with cost of infrastructure is going to play that role, but you know, give you a small example of this we. We have lost the ability to broadcast into the South Pacific and Southeast Asia. In a way that we used to very successfully over over decades to give us the capacity to do that. We're probably talking about you know that. He million a year forty million a year, which sounds a lot of defend. It's nothing if you're in the Defense Department. Let me tell you. But you need to be able to do things like that. To be the truth teller in the region to actually tell the region that there are alternatives to Chinese Communist Party authoritarianism I think that's what's needed with responding to this grey zone on threat. Is Actually to be the truth teller. In this part of the will and getting our system in Cambridge used to that reality to understanding what needs to be done. To starting at different type of conversation with our region. With our own people for that matter that that is a sort of a psychological change which I can see happening, but we're not quite yet. There's a bit of work still to be done to get to that point Melissa. Conley Tyler. Is, just responding on that. I agree entirely with what pitcher saying on on broadcasting. It's a small investment, such a an increasing influence. It should be Brian and I hope that did that's being seen. I think having defense voices. I will help a lot in a banks, seriously I'm but just went. When you ask Tom Balaton host government and what's happening there? There are some really good examples, so for example win. This Pacific step pop started an office of the Pacific was established in that apartment and tried and each job. He's to be that coordinating body, and it's bringing together the. The defense, the development and the diplomacy in a way that he's gone to maximize our influence. and I've noticed this a lot more discussion about that that three. How do you bring defense development diplomacy communities together? I'm involved in initiate the Pacific. Four Day and I think a lot of people not talking about what more we can do for that that joined up coordination to make the most about national instruments by skill. You're an expert on China. The elephant in the room of course is China doing need to be careful not to overestimate China's military strength. What about the weaknesses? Exactly right I mean you have to know your enemy's weakness as well as their strengths in the case of China, they are undertaking enormous reforming organization effort. They're pouring billions of dollars into new capabilities, but there's a lot of things we need to recognize I. Mean One is that the Chinese have not fought a shooting war and more than forty years. They are have no. They have zero experience in high end combat against a serious. Adversary, scenario, so that's not to downplay them, but to understand that they've got enormous obstacles to overcome that day. Themselves acknowledge that they themselves. No, they have to overcome, and that's why we had this window that we've been talking about. A fifteen to twenty years. to try and develop capabilities to get in front of the kinds of things that the Chinese want to bring to bear around. Around, twenty thirty or twenty, thirty, five, twenty, forty, paid-up Melissa to be continued. Thanks so much for being on our in. Thank you, tell my pleasure. Thank you, Tom. That was paid jennings. He's executive director of the Australian strategic pulsing suit by skill professor of Asia Pacific Security Studies at Macquarie University and Melissa Commonly Tyler. She's a research fellow at the Asia Institute at the University of Melbourne. These between the lines with Tom Switzer. Coming next, we're going to replay a version of a segment from between the lines. I 'cause commemorating the massacre of Bosnian Muslims at shredded Nitsa on the eleventh of July nodding ninety. Five twenty five years ago this week. More than eight thousand people were killed by Serb forces. It was the worst massacre. Europe had seen since the Holocaust. Serve softening up Trevor Nature for the army's final push into the town. Town of course was supposed to be a safe haven protected by the United Nations, but the civilians ended up being sitting ducks as I woke Larry. Hollingsworth Remembers I. Myself Feel Devastated and ashamed I was there with them? When we told them that it was a safe haven I watched. Many of these people walk in with the minimal possessions into shreds, knowing that it was a safe haven, and now they're fleeing out because we've let them down, let them down to the extent that within dies. About Twenty three thousand women and children were deported, and about eight thousand Muslim men and boys left behind where executed and buried in mass graves. Now, reports from the time described, frightening scenes stiffen overawed from medicines on frontier. Speaking he. Loading some of the children and women into buses, but there's no indication as to where it was buses, going with seen some horrifying streaming, going on women and children going into the buses being taken away from their family This was going on with a lot of crying a lot of panicking. The slaughter had been planned carefully and executed with precision. All the wall Dutch. Pace is literally stood by, and did nothing indeed even when the Serb assault on Srebrenica was imminent. in-command is still rejected Kohl's racetracks. Positions. Pope John Paul. The second declared ribbon Nitsa a defeat for civilization as media reports begins to reveal the scale of the unfolding tragedy. The UN says nine hundred thousand people are still unaccounted for. About some became clear as government soldiers emerging from the forest in central Bosnia, told of horrific massacres at the hands of the Serbs one young. People executing them on spot, but this didn't come out of the blue. By the time this massacre took place the civil war that tore the former Yugoslavia. Repot was heading into its fourth year. More than a million people have been displaced, and the world became familiar with a new term ethnic cleansing. So? Who is to blame for these well? Let's start with the United. Nations from ninety two to ninety, five shrivel Nitsa was the world's first union declared civilian syphon. It was supposed to to her aggression. It was supposed to aggression and set the scene for political negotiations to end hostilities between the Bosnian Serbs, and Muslims, but the UN soldiers in the SIPHONS. They were bedeviled by problems. If you declare an area safe haven in the name of the United Nations. Nations if you tell the people if they are safe in the name of the United Nations you have got to put the troops on the ground, and it's no good for politicians say yes, we go for safe havens, but we're not gonNA put the troops meanwhile the Europeans vacillated and equivocated failing miserably to cope with across at its own back door. America was also reluctant to get involved as then President George Bush senior explained in Nani Nani to. I? Something because I learned something from Vietnam. I am not going to commit US forces until I know what the mission is to the military. Tell me that it can be completed until I know how they can come out. You have ancient rivalries that have cropped up as as Yugoslavia's dissolved or getting dissolved, and it isn't going to be solved by sending in the eighty second airborne, and although on the campaign trail that Ye Bill Clinton pledged to reverse the appeasement of that bushes of Belgrade as President Clinton allowed the Balkans to bleed for three more years. French President Jacques Chirac was moved to declare quote, the position of the leader of the free world vacant. Trinite Sur changed all that having done nothing the before during the mass killings in Rwanda Clinton was galvanized into action, and crucially he cut the United Nations out of the Decision Chine on August thirty Washington led a night bombing campaign against the Serbs the NATO action began early this morning. The harsh light of fires and explosions coloring the night sky. Some people watched the bombardment from their houses, but after more than ten thousand deaths here in the last three years, most Sarajevans had given up any hope of outside intervention. Last night it came on a scale which could yet change the course of this war by the end of not ninety five sixty thousand nine hundred troops, including twenty thousand Americans were on the ground in Bosnia. Pace was declared. The BOEKEN's wars ended only because the US finally acted. He's President Clinton in November ninety five my fellow Americans in this new era there are still times when America and America alone can and should make the difference for peace. The terrible war in Bosnia is such a case nowhere. Today is the need for American leadership. More stark are more immediate than in. In Bosnia in the years since the Mexica Europe inaction was heavily criticised, and the US was held up for its global leadership in particular for its unilateral humanitarian intervention. This is when the US secretary. Of State. Madeleine Albright said America was the indispensable nation, and that idea would fade into the justification of the Iraq invasion in two thousand and three as a war of liberation, but he's a question with the US intervene. If the shrivel Nitsa massacre happened today from the standpoint of twenty twenty, we might ask if the era of US unilateral humanitarian intervention is well and truly over.

So how has this changed the environment in which the fed must determine whether economic conditions warrant a rate cut are fed reporter, Nick Tim Roche has been speaking to Charlie Turner from Washington. Well, let's be up front about this Nick has any fed chief ever faced such pressure before, from a president actually, yes, you could probably say that this is something fed cheers in the postwar period, have faced, what's different about President Trump? Is that his criticism has been much more public of the fed? So just to. Go back in time in the nineteen sixties, the fed chairman by the name of William mcchesney Morgan was very unpopular with president Johnson recall Johnson was trying to boost domestic spending while fighting the Vietnam war, and he did not like the fact that the fed was raising borrowing costs to limit inflation. And so he was very critical privately of Martin. There's a story about how he pushed him up against the wall said my boys are dying in Vietnam. And you won't give me the money I need. So there is a history of presidents putting pressure usually in private on the fed chair. What's different about this president is that he does it pretty often in public via Twitter via interviews or off the cuff statements to reporters on his way to Marine One helicopter. And so it creates a perception problem for the fed because the fed doesn't want to be seen by the markets is responding to anything but the economic and financial. Data that they analyze that could change the way investors. Think about inflation, and bond yields, and so forth. You described three challenges fed chair pal is navigating at this point. What are they so the fed has to set the right interest rate of the right time? The fed has to explain clearly, what they're doing and why they're doing it, and those are two challenges that every fed leader faces, but the third one is unique as we've talked about. And that is he has to deal with this public pressure, campaign, very loud, criticism from the president something that we haven't seen since the early nineteen nineties President George Bush senior was the last president who even said publicly what he thought the fed should be doing President Clinton and his two successors Bush, and Obama maintained this rule where they were not going to comment on the fed, and Clinton's advisers convinced him. This was a good policy for them because they had seen how President Bush. This is a first President Bush had called on Greenspan to lower rates. And Greenspan didn't go along with it. And so Clinton's advisers told him, look, you really don't have anything to gain by pressuring the fed. They're going to do what they think they need to do. And you putting pressure on them isn't gonna make their life any easier. They may feel like they have to do the opposite to to, you know, to look independent so Clinton and then Bush forty three and Obama never said anything about the fed, and that was a tradition that continued up until about a year and a half into Donald Trump's presidency doesn't fed chairman pal. Face pressure to cut rates for the rest of the year, including at the June meeting. So the Fed's next meeting is in less than two weeks on June.
Explainer 167: Why has Trump ramped up his war on the environment?
"As a people, we want and need economic growth. But now we must also expect environmental responsibility and respect the natural world. It was a Republican President, George Bush, senior, and not democrat to help stay through one of the most ambitious pieces of climate change legislation today, eight amending the Clean Air Act in nineteen ninety two limit air pollution, and tackle, everything from urban smoke to acid rain while his son fad less. Well, refusing to ratify the key Oto protocol in two thousand and one and helping tank brand America around the world. George Hw mate, an important point, protecting the environment and advancing big business didn't need to be mutually exclusive when one does, if the current Oakmont of the White House, don't. Out, J Trump has ever listened to that speech. We've seen enough of this stalemate. It's time to clear the air. You know, I think we will indeed since moving into Pennsylvania Avenue in January of two thousand seventeen Trump's administration has mounted a concerted effort to refu- climate change science and loosen regulations in favor of the fossil fuel industry. So how did the forty fifth president of the US become such a champion and chief of the environmental skeptics? And they say as and why as ever with Trump. The answer is complicated and contradictory Trump's musings, own the environment, actually predate his ascendancy to the presidency taking his favorite communications medium Twitter. He regularly lamb bastard. His predecessor Barrack Obama for wasting federal money tackling global climate change and as recently as two thousand fifteen he cooled the whole thing a hoax. All of this with the global warming and that a lot of it's a hoax. It's a hoax. I mean it's a money making industry. Okay. But then, just as we're starting to think with seeing patent Donald Trump before his many about tons of trying to throw us off the scent in two thousand nine for example, he signed an open letter that challenge diploma to come up with a more meaningful climate change policy will recently, his stowed, the importance of clean-air, and who can forget, those clean co comments while allowing measures that will undermine it often his framed, his stones as a business competitively issue right now. We're at the cleanest, we've ever been. That's very important to me. But if went clean, but every other place on earth is dirty. That's not so good. Of course, actions, speak louder than woods and ever since the now shamed and departed fossil fuel politics. Scott Pruitt was installed to lead the Environmental Protection Agency. We knew something was a mess, and no action speaks, louder than the decision to put after the Paris climate agreement. A huge blow even if many of the US's largest companies have found to continue following its rulebook. More recently, the assault on climate change has talked people working in government agencies pressuring staff to avoid using the words climate change in speeches. They have also been moved meant how scientific studies carried out by doing away with worst case scenario projections, and several members of Trump's inner circle are pushing to create a climate change panel. That will challenge environmental assessments, according to a recent New York Times report, the chasm between George H W Bush, and Trump may simply be a reflection of radically different times, the age of political decorum, and bipartisanship Bush, happily mentioned the Democrats in the room in that speech along gone. Meaning a compromise on the environment is unlikely. And then there are the people that Trump has chosen to surround himself with many of them, committed climate change deniers, just listen to this Arctic Council speech by secretary of state, Mike Pompeo earlier this month. Arctic is at the forefront of opportunity and abundance, it houses thirteen percent of the world's undiscovered oil thirty percent of its undiscovered gas and an abundance of uranium rare earth minerals gold diamonds, and millions of square miles of untapped. Resources fisheries glory, dark, money donors, so competent, knee, described by New Yorker journalist, and Monaco, big interview, e Jane man, also doubtlessly have a part to play thanks to the Mercer's and the cokes, deep pockets among others, what was once fringe thinking is now part at the Republican mainstream and that includes the environment. We know that Trump and embrace of science quackery conspiracy theories doesn't have the best grasp of the facts, and whether it's someone who has the presidential ear distorted vision that the US will lose out to China, if it abandoned fossil fuels, despite the as in power moved to dominate the clean energy market, all simply watching too much FOX and friends, the whole climate crisis as they call. It is not only fake news. It's fake science. Remain be sure. But that also doesn't mean that we should doubt for one moment. The convictions of this administration. My administration is putting an end to the war on call for Monaco in New York. I'm as Docker.

That's a Bloomberg business flash politics policy, power and law continues. All right. Thank you, Greg. You know, congress is prepared to pass a two week stopgap spending Bill this week. They wanna keep the federal government funded through December twenty first what this does is allows them to put this whole budget debate on hold. So they can take the time to pay their respects to the late president, George H W Bush former US Senator from New York Al D'Amato joining us now is he does each week in our Bloomberg eleven three oh studios in New York. And Senator while I absolutely want to get your thoughts about the former president the late President Bush in just a moment. Let's launch into what these lawmakers are. Doing taking the step to keep the government functioning just an extra couple of weeks. But it expires on December twenty first that seems like they risk a shutdown before Christmas. Give me your insight high with hope that the testimonials given to former President George Bush, what sheriff kind of as an inspiration and get both sides to put the Animesh that exist today in the political rhetoric, which is so horrific put it aside and try to emulate the kind of things that he is known for bringing people together, we should not be closing down the government. It would be a tragedy. And I would hope that the president would she's a wisdom of acting more Bush like more compromising. Yes, she wanna chic certain. Things but building the wall. Is not the end all and Beal getting some of reform or the promise of reform on immigration is important. But nothing show important that you would shut down the government create all kinds of chaos, and then the finger pointing continues, and it gets worse. The animist to political atmosphere gets worse. So use this as an opportunity you try to come together. There's nothing worthwhile in bringing about a shutdown of government it wrong. So it now depends upon the leadership in the house and the Senate and real presidential leadership. Sir. We've been asking a lot of our guests if they have any personal remembrances of President Bush at this time, if you have any well, let me say he he's so well known for Desert Storm and he demonstrated. What you do you bring your allies? Together, you go in with L overwhelming force. I was there in Kuwait. When. We we took over the capitol. I flew there at that time. And I wanna tell you there's something he's not giving too much recognition. And that was his victory in Panama knocking out Manuel Noriega again going in with a superior force hitting them hard getting rid of a brutal dictator who is creating tremendous disruption in that area. He didn't let them get away with it. And he did that early on in his administration show hats off to a man who knew how to wage war when to do it was not a bully. And so when he said something sent out a message people got it. What I see today is that too much bombastic rhetoric, and when you should follow through. There is no follow-through talk with China. And yet they're pouring in Fenton. Al killing our kids, creating helping to exacerbate this is opiate. Epidemic. Mr President wake up. That's what you wanna to say you stop it now because the government of China controls that so they're pouring poison into our country. That that's when you get tough and let it be known. You do it behind the scenes, but you tell them we're not gonna tolerate this. And then I hear about this blockade of that the Iranians are are threatening. They should be called once and for all you tried it closed at peninsula cut off oil to the world, and they will be Chevere consequences, but get on go out in a bombastic way, you'd let it be known behind the scenes, and you make sure your secretary of defense gives them that message because world leaders know that if matters says we're gonna come in you better stop this nonsense. They'll listen, you know, it's very interesting. We only have about twenty seconds. But politics, aside, you were talking about how the late President George Bush was able to wage war and a quote proper way. Although everyone is describing him as a gentle soul who practice civility and. How those two philosophies can actually live in the same person you've just analyzed it. They can. Exist and are much more powerful than just being rhetoric Mombassa because people don't know you the people you want to convince if he is he bluffing. What not that? That's not good. They should know when you really mean business, and you do it most of it behind the scenes US Senator Al D'Amato of New York, we have to leave it there. Thank you so much.

And it doesn't even mean that you value some of the things same things in your life. Like it. It is a terrific movie and just tying it back to the conversation. I had with the lease on the nuance life. It's the first time I've been able to like princesses the Princess segment is so well done I needed a tire movie of the Disney Princess section. Can we just do a home where they're hanging out and problem solving in their yoga pants outfits, and their leisurewear I just want I want that whole entire I would wash like a solid two hours of that. I'm just wanna be clear with all the Easter eggs about their different stories. I love that Pocahontas clearly had a win machine in the room. I just loved it. All I want to watch that all the time. I've never in my life wanted more Princess, and I thought I could watch that movie now that I've seen this because it's so reflective it's almost like Disney took a big breath and said, okay, this is all been pretty silly. So let's get real about it. I think Sarah Silverman. Did an outstanding job. I love this character of an LP. I just this is the first time that I have been like, well, no, that's not true mwana.

I find more with Reckitt Ralph in this movie because I was like, no, we all must stay together. Stay the same and everyone that I love must stay next to me and love all the same things.

"He wants trade deals to change. No matter what else is happening in the world. And I think that's really frightening and gets to exactly what you were saying Sarah that when we talk about our presidents. We are talking about what our culture values and doesn't value. And I think that that gets t the last piece of this conversation, which is we have some folks who want to make George H W Bush perfection and Saint like in death. We have a whole lot of other. People who won't even here. Just a benign rest in peace about him without going through all of his failures. And I think that hurts us to I think it hurts us when we can't show. Any kind of grace or space for reflection in a person's death. I think it hurts us in getting more people to run for office, especially more people who are temperate and moderate who who who here this kind of discussion. And it's not even you can't please everybody. It's you can't please anyone at any time and not pleasing them. Can't even be kind of a quiet disapproval, but an all out assault on a person. Even in the moment of their death death should be the most connecting experience, we have is human beings. And I think that when we use the death of any former president to start yelling at each other about all of our old fights, we are really damaging ourselves. We hope everybody finds a moment to reflect on the life and legacy of George. Herbert Walker Bush in a way that his grace filled, and we hope that we found a moment here to do that among ourselves. Sara, what's on your mind outside of politics. Okay. Will estate up twelve thirty binge-watching. Bodyguard. I thought it would be a fun show for me nNcholas to watch together. And so we watched the first episode, and I was like this is really good. And then we watched the second episode. And then I think we watched a third episode together one night, and he was like I want to go to bed, but there was a major plot development. I was like just watch the next one to make sure this worked out, okay? And minor. It's not really a spoiler. But just let me say it did not work out. Okay. And so then I was like all in sorry. Finish the whole thing. I said until twelve thirty haven't seen twelve thirty in a long time. I do not regret a thing. It is an excellent show is very intense. If features rob start from game of thrones looking super hot with his Irish accent, which I'm fully invested in. He doesn't even have a beard, and I think he's hot, and we all know how central I usually find a beard to attractiveness, but so good. It's just good. And there's a lot of things, and I can't really talk about without spoiling the plot. But highly highly recommend bodyguard streaming now on Netflix. Okay. So if you don't know anything about bodyguard, tell us genre. Like, what's the what am I showing up for he's like protecting? He's like the secret service for the homeland security cabinet member. Is that they call it the home secretary, okay? You did all this intrigue because they're all these increasing terrorist attacks, and you have some infighting between their life CIA and their FBI. And just there are so many things I cannot talk about. But it is so good y'all got to watch. That sounds awesome. I think I could be in for that. Could I be in for that? Like yes to me about how violent graphic. How many things are going to upset me about it? Klay. There's some explosions there is one trinity graphic shootout saying. But I mean, it's about terrorism. So people die you're saying there's some people that die, but it's appropriate and not gratuitous. Now, it's totally proprio did not gratuitous.

"That's what's so interesting that all that stuff about Willie Horton as we're having these conversations about how civil he was. I keep thinking I can recognize that particularly the letter that has gone back around and combine that he wrote to Bill Clinton, and I think there's so much of that in his service as a public service, but when he was campaigning. I don't think there's necessarily a lot of an indication of civility. And I think that's that's what I would like to sort of have a conversation about is the understanding of his legacy with regards to the reality of his life and choices because here's what I think I think that. The conversation right now is George Bush was the last of the the, you know, the old school Republicans, and you can trace his loss. And I mean, they literally said this on on the daily you can trace his loss in a straight line to Donald Trump, and this new sort of Republican party, and I wanna push back on that ever so slightly because I think that George Bush is not an indication of anything more or less than the internal struggle of moderates. Okay. Because it's not like the party of Barry Goldwater in the sixties and seventies was just a picture of moderation. You know what I mean? Like, I don't I don't necessarily buy this idea that the Republican party was always sort of a more moderate small government Republican party. I think you always had a base that was pushing a against an indifferent parts in history. And particularly when you look at his life. I was. Thought it was really interesting to hear about his house and Senate races and Texas and the house race he went right during his campaign and campaigned against the Civil Rights Act. He he regretted that later in life and talked about it and his Senate campaign the one that he lost. He got a more conservative democratic opponent than he anticipated. He lost his he can go right enough. And I thought you know, and then you have the when he ran against Reagan. And he said he didn't like any of right. You know, he was for abortion rights, he was against voodoo economics, and then he came out and said odd and say that in like in his campaigns. I think you see not necessarily you do see. There are indications of a change the Republican party. I don't debate that I think what you see is this man who struggled with with being a moderate, and how do you campaign as a moderate? And I don't think that that is something that he figured out. I'm not sure that something anybody's figured out is how do you can't stand up? And how do you get a base to support you when you're when you're argument is I'm just going to go in there and examine the facts and try to do what's right and not. Be driven by ideology. I think that's really hard. I think what's really fascinating with regards to the Willie Horton as you see to moderates coming up against each other. You see caucus and Bush. These two guys are like we just want to do. What's right? We're not going to be driven by this party ideology. But I think that, you know, then Bush made the campaign choices and made choices in his policy to to feed a base to try to maintain his power not because I think that he was some power hungry awful person. I don't really like a lot of some of the sort of reporting that wants to twist some of his choices. I think this is just the struggle of somebody who wants to do the right things gotten public service for Moseley the right reasons, he's not a perfect person. I don't think he would claim that. And I don't think there's any need to argue that. But I think it's just when I when I look back at his life and all these choices he made while campaigning. The choices he made while president the way he talked about being president, particularly the choices he made with regards to the close out of the of the Cold War, and Panama and all these things was just. Like, I said like the internal struggle of a moderate on a national political stage..

"We just need to sit back and watch it work and see what happens from there. There will be a point when the Miller report goes to congress that it becomes much more political, but we don't need to make it. So before that point. All right. We have new changes to the format of pansy politics. Everything old is new again as what we're gonna call this change because we're going back to complement the other side a few months ago, I encouraged a change to a gratitude moment because I found the compliment the other son who will exhaust eating somedays. And I wanted to be more positive is sort of felt like a chore, and I didn't want to feel like a chore went to fill like an appreciation. But it was missed. Everybody liked complement the other side. We also talk about complement the other side and are coming out February. So we're going to go back to complement the other side, I'm going to truly try to bring a spirit of gratitude to complement the other side. So for all of you who are missing it. It's back. So we're going to begin complement the other side, my complement the other side this week is Neil Gorsuch supreme court Justice. I hate to hate to put supreme court justices insides, but come on. Let's be really on on our. That's how it works. But I love it. When I see supreme court justices from what we would classifies different sides teaming up and that happened last week when Neil Gorsuch Sotomayor came out against civil forfeiture. Which for those who don't know, it's it's basically call it policing for profit. And they it's when the police can seize personal property, if they feel like they're the personal property is related to a crime, civil asset forfeiture. And there's limits at the federal level. But it had not been for some reason. You know, the eighth amendment bars imposition of excessive fines, but they had not sort of applied it to the state level. And they had a case come before the supreme court. And I thought it was so funny because they start it's this Indiana, solicitor general they're having this oral arguments. He's trying to make the case like Gorsuch comes out. And it's basically like can we just established? He says, quote, we all agree that excessive fines clause is incorporated against the states. Kill we disagree on that. Can we at least agree on that? But the guy was like, oh, I don't know. Maybe not. And he's a I think it, yes. Or no would probably be a good starting point. And then the the the Indiana solicitor General Charles the suggests that it's more complicated. And course, educates them off noting that most of the Bill of rights was incorporated to the states quote in like the nineteen forties in quote. And I I don't know. What thought that was so funny. I just love him in Sonia Sotomayor, like listen. Do we need to do this come on? We're gonna we're gonna apply everything to the states. Did it quote unquote in like the nineteen forties? Let's just all get on board with this also so before future is pull shit. So I'm glad they're going after it, and yeah, I really have very much enjoyed this reporting on the oral arguments for this case, I think for those of us he spent three years in law school hearing that kind of casualties from the court if he is aiming shocking and exciting to see the court changing in that way. There are lots of changes about the court that you don't feel so great about. But it is nice to hear the court sounding like a group of people. Yeah. Yup. Yup. Enjoyed who live in a contemporary world. Yeah. More of that Gorsuch. Good job. I wanted to complement former President Bill Clinton, which will transition us into our remembrance of George H W Bush, I really appreciated his Washington Post editorial about the very famous letter that George H W Bush left for Clinton as he came into office and more than that that. Post piece reminded me of the complexity of Bill Clinton despite a long list of deep flaws. Bill Clinton has used his time out of office to forge relationships with other former presidents and other people in the world to do a lot of good in the world. And I think it's important to acknowledge that so next up. We will talk about President George. Herbert Walker Bush who passed away on Friday..

"Because of the things that he's done around taxis and loans and all these other business deals, and I just don't know that that's a great strategy for the president. So it's been really interesting. I'm curious to know what Michael? Has to say. A lot of yet tippety with Michael Cohen centers around lying to congress about a real estate project that the trumps were pursuing while Donald Trump was running for president. I think that's really important because it's so easy as this investigation continues, and the president often sort of what I can only describe as Pige hissy fit on Twitter, which to me, I always seems indicative of like what his lawyers are his lawyers are giving him bad news. So right now we're recording on Monday. And it seems apparent to me that his lawyers gave him some bad news because he got on Twitter and pitch to hissy fit, and you know, when he's doing that. And there's sort of the minutia of the indictments and this and that it's easy to lose track. To me of the overall fact that they have lied from the beginning about their relationship. With russia. So now, we know, you know, in the beginning, they said we had no business with Russia. Oh, nope. But yes, we did all we never had any contact with them. Oh, yes. We did. But it was about adoption well that was alive, but it was about gathering dirt. Oh, but we didn't know anything about WikiLeaks. Open outlooks looks like Roger stone. I mean, like, it's just it's so easy to lose sight of the fact that their narrative about that campaigns interactions with Russia has been completely dishonest from the beginning. And as the Muller investigation concludes. I think we will see the depths at which that dishonesty reaches. It is will only remain to be seen how congress reacts to that dishonesty was reading an article about President Obama. He was speaking somewhere. And he said my administration was the only administration in modern history to have no indictments, and I didn't realize that. And then I started thinking back. I'm like, oh my God. She's right now. I don't know how far he he defines modern history. I don't know if the Carter administration had end documents. But to think those eight years were only the exception to the rule, and that since president Nixon's administration, the idea that corruption reaches the highest levels that you know, we've almost become immune to the idea that. Administrations lie. Members of the administration are indicted regularly members of the campaign. I mean, it's just it's so it's so sad and disturbing that not only can we not follow the threat on the fact that they have lied about their interactions with foreign government. But then that the next question has to be will anybody care will anybody care think that you see that mirrored in our pop culture too because I feel like the new standard has become keep it wasn't like house of cards level. And this story is going to be enormously complicated. Now, some people will see as very simple. And in a way, it is. Right. If there was an interest in personal gain via a foreign government that sets up an opportunity for a foreign government to have a type of influence over the Trump family that they might not even understand. And appreciate. And so that's the high level of it. The details of that are going to be really complicated, and they're mostly going to be financial. And there's probably going to be a lot of dryness to them. And I think that if the alternate story is not. Kind of filled with like murder and intrigue the way, we would we would pay to watch a movie we're going to have a sizeable portion of the country going like President Obama said every administration has issues, and I think that these are really serious issues, despite the fact that they don't feel like the the level of depravity that we entertain ourselves with which is a whole other topic. Why are we in our teen ourselves that way? But I just think it's important to hold onto the fact this is where I always come out when I get too deep into the Miller investigation. The process is working people. Who know what they're doing are doing their work. They're doing that work with oversight. The president would do well to remember that everything that's been filed in the past couple of weeks has been filed under his handpicked acting attorney. General Matthew Whitaker has not put the brakes on this thing. So the process is working..

"And this is where you have to have a real conversation about values, but we need our leadership and the people negotiating with China to be as interested in them as they are in us. We also wanted to discuss the mini mini developments with regards the Muller investigation. Beth your our resident Muller expert where you at right now what you thinking what you're thinking because we the traditional knowledge. Speaking of things, we got wrong is that there would be sort of a trickle of indictments post-election because they took a pause during the midterms Muller investigation did and we haven't really seen that. So what do you think that is indicative throughout this investigation? My feeling has been there will be more to it than a strident. Trump supporter believes will exist and less than a strident member of the resistance, right? That we would end up. Up somewhere in the relatively unsatisfying middle with this investigation. I think the fact that we didn't see that trickle of indictments following the midterms compels me to believe that that we might land on there being more to this investigation than I thought there would be because I think that if we were going to wrap up with more kind of lying to investigators crimes more white collar, money laundering, sort of crimes from players who those of us who are really invested in politics. Would you know, we would recognize their names, but the general public might not I do think that that would have wrapped up shortly after thanksgiving. The fact that is extended causes me to wonder if we will not see indictments of more prominent people perhaps members of the Trump family. I still don't know the president himself will ever face any kind of criminal charge or even charges within the house of representatives. And the Senate I do not think of Bob Muller is a person who thrives on drama the way the president does. So I really think that if he could have wrapped this up. He would have wrapped it up, but the developments recently are that Paul Manafort has breached his plea agreement by lying to the molar team. Can I just stop coming to stop for a second? Paul manafort. I feel like we need to have a conversation about choices in much the same way. I have conversations with my children choices have consequences. Somebody needs to sit down and have a conversation with him about this. Sorry. I just need to get that off my chest. I think somebody may be needed to have that conversation with him quite a few years ago. My feeling about Paul Manafort is that if you look at the people who have paid his bills for a very long time. It could be that American prison is one of the best of his options. He is wanted for questioning in Ukraine. He, you know, there are people in Russia who do not want what Paul Manafort knows being shared with the world. And I just imagined that he at this point in his life has made choices meaning that he has very few good choices left. Homerun them. And I I do not say that with even a hint of shot in Florida or something I hate that. Like, it makes me sick to my stomach when I really think about it. I don't care enough about him to have shout in Florida. That's how I feel about him. I just don't care enough. I don't care enough to wish bad things on him. I do not wish bad things on him. I I wish for him to cooperate in this investigation to the extent that it aids in tree finding and other than that. I wish him the best that is available to him under the circumstances. The other development is that Michael Cohen who was the president's. I'm just gonna use the word consultant because I think everything we've learned has indicated that he he was his lawyer, but not really doing legal work, and that matters because what is shared between a person and their lawyer is usually protected by the attorney client privilege, but I don't think most of what was shared between Trump and Cohen is going to be protected by privilege because of the nature of work that he was doing, but he has pled guilty to charges and is cooperating now with the Muller team. And the president has not reacted well to that and has referred to him as a weak person. Who's trying to get his sentence reduced to making up? Terrible lies who should go to prison forever..

"And so that's how he creates pressure. He creates suffering and then says, okay, let's make a deal to alleviate suffering. Now, I think that is a dated approach that harms a lot of people in the process, and that we should evolve to do better than that. But it is still affective in some circumstances. I think it's possible that he will get this deal through congress despite a lot of heartburn about it because what he has said is I'm terminating NAFTA. So you can have the new deal that I negotiated or we can have nothing, and that's fine with me to those are your two options. And that is not the way that I like to work. It is not the kind of leadership that I want to support it probably will be effective. Well, I can see how it would be effective with Mexico and Canada. I do not think it will be affected with China. Now, I think that they have pushed pause on this trade war because everybody was feeling the effects. I think that the Chinese economy was feeling the effects, but I don't see a lot of promises from China coming from this delay, basically they've delayed and they're going to say they have a ninety day deadline to reach a new deal. There is a little bit of progress because China insisted no deals would be made while the current tariffs were in place, and they at least made a deal to push pause while the tariffs stayed in place. Because Trump was was threatening an increase on the tariffs tariffs to twenty five percent from the current ten percent. So I don't know if it was fear that he would make good on that. But china. And the United States don't have the capacity to just sort of do the a little bit. Like, I don't care. I don't I don't care. What happens? I mean. He can't play that card. I think in this sort of trade dispute, I think you see that and the truce they've both negotiated that we are inextricably linked. We need to sell a lot of our agricultural products to China. I think it really interesting side note of this considering your conversation with brand is there are there's a lot of development in the Chinese auto industry that they want to get involved in the American auto industry. They wanna come over in sort of be a player in the way that the Japanese were in the eighties and nineties another interesting tie into the Bush presidency, which we're gonna talk about in our main segment, and so I think that that might have worked with NAFTA. This idea of do it or don't do it. I don't care is not going to work with China. And that's what this pause, and the this truth sort of speaks to I think, that's right. I think China is much more fascinated with an attuned to our culture than we. Are with theirs and in the long run, that's really problematic for us. Yeah. I think approaching China in the same way that you would approach a Mexico or Canada where we have shared geography, we have a lot of shared culture. It's a really different situation with China and China has spent decades learning about us and studying us like animals in the wild, right? And I think we have been very dismissive of China exactly as you said, we felt like China was missing democracy in missing all of these ingredients necessary to thrive in a modern economy. I did not say that with admiration for the Chinese government. I still think that democracy is a better way than what is happening in China. And I think that the way China conducts itself in the world is often abhorrent. I think what happens is in terms of the suppression of speech and information in China is terrible. I also think the reality is China is continuing to push forward, quite successfully. By economic metrics in spite of all of that, maybe because of all of that..

"Your podcast players. So today we wanted to start off with lots of trade news. The president has just concluded the g twenty in Argentina before he went to the g twenty the president and the president of Canada and Mexico signed a new trade agreement extensively to replace NAFTA. The US Mexico agreement he's very proud of this. And so we wanted to talk about that a little bit. And then while at the G twenty he had a sit down with president Xi Jinping of China to talk about the impending trade war between our two countries in. And says that they have a deal. I think what they have is a deal to make a deal. But we'll discuss that as well. Well, the NAFTA deal is kind of interesting timing because that was signed by President Bush. So there's lots of this is what it was is what it's going to be. He's he campaigned against NAFTA. He has never liked NAFTA. And while I think there are some important changes in this trade deal. I mean, the the most interesting thing is that it's not like it's a done deal. It has to be ratified by congress. And I think that's a pretty big lift, I think it's a big lift to most people are saying that this agreement has some significant changes from NAFTA it modernizes sections of NAFTA related intellectual property while there are some decent things environmentally in this trade deal. I'm gonna Lincoln article that analyzes the agreement purely from an environmental perspective vox has been pretty complimentary of the deal based on its treatment of labor. There are a lot more rights for Mexican workers in particular. Lead in the agreement. So it seems not bad. But I do think that it's going to be a big lift in congress. Well, this is something I've been thinking about a lot and has a good transition to the deal to make a deal that he reached with the president of China, which is I have been wondering based on some interesting reporting coming from the New York Times, they did a big piece that will put in the show notes about everything we got wrong about China. How we totally underestimated the capacity for economic development considering that they were not democratic nation. We told ourselves that the only way to get a piece of the growing economic pie was to democratize and be a liberal democracy. And that just wasn't true. We were totally wrong about that. And I think a lot about what else are we wrong about right now with regards to the global economy with regards to a lot of things, and you know, before Trump was president, we spent a lot of time on this podcast. A lot of people spend a lot of time and still talk. About how our institutions are outdated. How they're not ready for the twenty first century and all his challenges. And I thought what are we getting wrong about the chaos, he brings what are we getting wrong about the fact that you can create a lot of change from chaos and disruption. What if there are good things to come from this incredibly chaotic president who is often misinformed and dishonest and all the negative things that he brings in the disruption he brings but then other people come to the table. And I think this could be the case with NAFTA and say, okay. Well, now that you understand that we're not on firm footing. What do we all willing to look at with fresh eyes? Like what positive could come from that? Maybe there is positive things that could come from that maybe the consequences of Donald Trump presidency are not all negative. You know, human beings are not great at predicting the future. We're not great at seeing where we're wrong, and I'm trying to really think through particularly in our trade relationships. What we could gain from disruption, and maybe NAFTA, the new NAFTA is a sign of that. I think that what this president understands. Well, is that most change is not made without suffering..

"W Bush president George H W Bush passed away Friday, the age of ninety four and we figured we would we would turn this into a balanced review of President Bush what he did in his life and his death. And how he's being remembered. Of course, we were kinda shocked at how these young reporters are remembering him fondly. When many of us grew up and many of us lived in the times as we were younger watching what? George W Bush, H W Bush was doing and several things and one of the things I think just start things off the conversation because we have a lot of stuff to cover Jefferson. I mean looking back at how George H W was raised. I mean, his father Prescott Bush. I mean here is a man that. Many people want to ignore in history. Because of what he did. I mean, how he organized against Roosevelt how he was influenced by a lot of rich Nazi businessman. I mean trading with the enemy all that stuff. How do you think that influenced George Herbert Walker? Bush everson. Well, Bush grew up in a in a mill in a ruling class meal, you I think that's the common denominator of his career. So the circumstances that his father was dealing with with the World War Two time. You know that George Bush absorbed that mentality when he was coming up. So you know, we talked about was he a CIA agent. We know that George W Bush's oil drilling business in the fifties. And sixties was a CIA proprietary. Offshore. It was called. And he put it at the use of the Central Intelligence Agency. That's what that's what a proprietary company did the codename w saline has been found in recently declassified documents. So I think that you know, as a young man, George W Bush, he wasn't a CIA officer. He wasn't in the CIA. He was a businessman making his way, but he was making all of his contacts bailable to the intelligence agency for whatever purposes they needed. So the was being it was proprietary company that was basically used by the CIA in the George H W Bush was getting his contacts through that. But when when he be an active player in a lot of respects because let's go back to that document regarding J Edgar Hoover after the Kennedy assassination. He was looking for, you know, George Bush says. That's that's the key to the conspiracy. I don't believe is accused conspirators. I believe the donations to these mercenaries supposed to go in and take over when Castro was there during the bay of pigs situation. That's what I think puts him in front and center with regards to the Kennedy assassination. You know, I would say we don't know based on what the available evidence says I try to stick to stick to what's in the public record. And what we can see is. Zapata off shore was available to the CIA for whatever. Operation's. They wanted to launch in Cuba. George George Bush was waiting his his business partner. We know was quote unquote, winning commercial asset and his business partner ends offshore head that status he'd probably did too. Now, the evidence connecting Bush to the Kennedy assassination. Frankly, I don't see it. That's not to say it didn't happen. But I don't think that's the way it happened. And I don't think we have the evidence of that. Well. About the memo as I see a very very smart maneuver on the poor part of George Herbert Walker Bush to get on paper that he is in Tyler Texas when the assassination goes down. That's actually what the upshot to me of the memo is is he calls in and says, oh, by the way, I'm in Tyler making a long distance call you may wanna look into this guy at at the university. I think it was the university of Houston. You may be interested in going and doing something stupid like killing the president. But oh, by the way, I'm in Tyler Texas. What about the let's see? My key is not the document. My key is the fact that Allen Dulles actually establish operation forty and operation forty was supposed to go into Cuba to take out Castro and that they asked George H W Bush would fund that counterintelligence. In fact, I think they they didn't naphtha kind of twisted his arm to do it. He did it. And and so after the bay of pigs mission win completely awry. George H W Bush was asked to cooperate and Phillies Rodriguez. Of course, there is the name. And of course, private funding has resulted pressure from American corporations once again who suffered at the hands of Fidel Castro, and it was we've had on the show many times, a number of people who have said that operation forty had something to do with the Kennedy assassination. These are the two different documents. I'm talking about the document that people point to that's the day of the assassination document where people say was he in Dealey plaza. And there's a picture, and and it's been basically debunked. There's the second document. I'm talking about that document, which George Herbert Walker. Bush went out of his way to get on the record that I'm not in Dallas, I'm entitled remember. And then when after again, I don't remember I don't remember where I was. But yet he's sitting. But. We can get lost in the weeds here the point is did to urge Herbert Walker. Bush was he in Dealey plaza, the photographic evidence is very weak, and certainly desposit right was involved in.
