UK PM Rishi Sunak Is Pushing Heavily for CBDCs

"News that you can use. We did mention that the UK prime minister Rishi sunak is pushing heavily for CBDCs. I watched the video. I don't think it's in this article here, but there is a video of him and it just, it makes me want to retch because they are selling CBDCs as though they are going to be such a blessing for the people and it's going to just lead to all kinds of ways that we can use our funds and make everything more secure and the bottom line is. It's a trap folks. It's all a trap. Central Bank digital currencies will be used in the hands of nefarious people which many of our leaders already are to track everything you do. And if you want to question if this reality is something that could be a reality here, look up the Chinese social credit score system. They implemented this a few years ago where they are tracking everything people buy and sell. They're tracking what they post on social media. Who they are in contact with. And if they decide that you said something, they don't like or you are somehow in relationship with people that might be undesirables, they lower your social credit score just like that Black Mirror episode nosedive.

"Now, throughout this, there are some harrowing moments. You almost drowned in the Suez Canal. You mentioned it centimeters. If someone doesn't extend to hand, you're dead because you jumped in the water with, I don't know how many kilometers of how many kilograms of weight on you and you were sinking like a rock. Another time you have to get a soldier off of his knees in the Golan Heights. In fact, the Golan Heights were hard on both you and your brothers, all of them. So it's a matter of interest in war. When you're making that decision to go or not go and this is going to lead me to Iran. What is the, what is the ultimate calculation, mister prime minister? I think the first thing is whether you can maintain a clear head in the midst of battle or in the midst of that enormous duress in the. Firefight. We were at the time at war with Egypt happily that's behind us, but we had a terrible war of attrition and we were being attacked by the Egyptians across the canal to our side. And raiding our people, killing them, killing them wholesale. And the army command decided to send my unit to their side of the canal. And we successfully did that one night and Egyptian military convoy and that's, by the way, not a pleasant experience to see the sea of people in agony and died something that I never and every rejoice then put it this way. But of course, there was great rejoicing on our side, so they said, okay, we'll send you another car. And 48 hours passed between the successful rate and the next one. And as we got into these zodiac rubber boats, across the canal, the as we approach close to the Egyptian side of the canal, the Egyptians dug voxels every hundred meters without our knowing it. And they opened this horrific fire at us, which killed one of my friends in the post ride in front of us. And I

I've never read that before. That might be familiar to listeners in Israel, but ain't familiar to Americans. That's kind of an extraordinary story. Well, indeed it was. I could tell you that far from being just an extraordinary story was an extraordinary in many ways an unbelievable moment in my life. And it's one where my brother was pitted against me, we had 16 soldiers from our unit just as mechanics about to fix and fix a hijacked plane.

Ali Velshi's Worldwide Perspective on the Turn From True Democracy

"If anyone has a worldview because you report from all over the world all the time, it's that, right? Netanyahu is making a comeback. What's his name, Bolsonaro, thank God, just lost, but it is this ongoing worldwide battle, isn't it? About autocracy fascism. There are a couple of standouts though in that. So Netanyahu, mama had been Salman who doesn't have to run for elections ever. Vladimir Putin who doesn't have to run for elections ever. And Xi Jinping. We have a few people here who are in a much better position if Donald Trump were to win the election. And Donald Trump now looks like we'll declare that he's running for president on according to some sources on November the 14th. So there are people who are setting up for it, right? So Saudi Arabia and Iran got together to cut oil production to increase oil prices right before an election to hurt Democrats. And because they would like to hurt Democrats and they'd like Donald Trump in power. Netanyahu facing indictment and all sorts of things want to be prime minister of Israel looks like that's actually going to happen. And have never had a better friend than Donald Trump. So there's two themes going on in the world. There's a general lurch to the right, but not just the right toward fascism toward all these things. And I think a lot of people don't understand that having the vote does not guarantee you democracy, right? Iran has about Russia has a vote. All these people vote. But there's this lurch to the right, and then there's a bunch of people in the world setting up for Donald Trump to regain the top spot as the anti democratic guy in chief. And that's a big issue. You've now heard a lot of Republicans talking about, I don't know if we should spend this kind of money in Ukraine. Kevin McCarthy Senate Marjorie Taylor Greene said it. You know, so I am very worried that that is an abstraction to a lot of Americans, right? We're dealing with the price of gas. The price of food, and these are all very, very real issues with interest rates going up and inflation. But if democracy ends while we're worried about that, it's going to be a problem.

"prime minister" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories

"Britain's new prime minister is already facing his first crisis by Armani said London. Britain's prime minister Rishi sunak is facing the first political crisis of his premiership. Less than a week on the job after around 200 conservative MPs chose him to lead the country. The crisis for the UK's first prime minister of color swirls around Home Secretary suella braverman, also from a South Asian background, over her hard line approach to migrants. Braver men is no stranger to controversy. She was forced to resign by sunac's predecessor, Liz trusts, the UK's shortest serving leader ever, on October 19th, after admitting to data breaches that broke the government's own rules. But just 6 days later, she was reinstated by sunac as the UK's immigration minister. Now she finds herself at the center of a scandal over newfound scrutiny of data breaches, and uproar over policies that have resulted in unsafe conditions at an asylum processing center, and Kent, southeast England. Here's what to know about the braverman controversy. And what it means for sunac's leadership. Leaky Sue's data security violations. Speaking with journalists Emily maitlis and Lewis Goodall on their podcast, the news agents, the leader of the centrist liberal Democrats at Davies, said journalists told him braverman has been nicknamed leaky Sue by colleagues over her mishandling of sensitive information. Braverman admitted to breaching the ministerial code by sending an official document, and her October 19th resignation letter, she emailed a draft ministerial statement from her personal email to a trusted parliamentary colleague. She called it a technical infringement and said she reported the error immediately via official channels. Others have disagreed with that characterization. So Ella braverman did not mistakenly leak a meaningless document. She endlessly consulted a maverick. She deliberately emailed a policy Doc not yet agreed to her private email. Then she sent it to John Hayes and someone she thought was his wife, tweeted Tim shipman, the chief political commentator at The Sunday Times, referring to her political ally, Hayes. For many, it remains unclear what changed in the short window between braverman's October 19th resignation and her reinstatement last week. On Monday, braverman admitted to sending official documents to her personal email address on 6 occasions, raising further concerns about data breaches. Overcrowding at the manston migrant center.

"There was one in 2004 starring Nicole Kidman. Welcome to stepford. Stepford is the family Paradise. It has no crime, no poverty, and no pushing. Good morning, ladies. Wait, you work out dressed like this? Which differed from the novel slightly in that it had the women's enthusiasm for domestic labor deriving from a nano chip that was implanted into their brains. So in that film, the process was reversible. In the original novel, it's not quite so optimistic. The husband's actually murdered their wives and replaced them with eerily life like robots, provided by a former technician at Disney, which is quite a grim outlook on the relationship between the sexes. Men would actually rather have a robot that waits on them hand and foot than a fully fledged partner. And it's a grim view that you say has some resonance today. Absolutely. I was struck when rereading the novel that it's very dark. It's very witty, and it dramatizes a backlash to women's rights that we are seeing in a different format today. There's a nostalgia for the values of the 1950s in some quarters on TikTok. There's women who are glorifying being staying at home girlfriends. Classic means tradition refined. It means elegance and being poised and rejecting the idea of modern feminists, which is you can dress however you want. You can dress slovenly and never wash your hair and every time is wine a clock and not taking seriously how wonderful it is to be a really feminine woman. So that is to say that the stepford wives aesthetic, let's call it is still having cultural influence. Absolutely. I think it's most evident in a new film called don't worry darling, which is set in a 1950s inspired desert town called victory. All of you wives. We men we ask a lot. We ask for strength. Food at home, a house clean. Well, the women stay at home and drink martinis and Hoover and the men go off to work. They are the undisputed breadwinners. The protagonists don't worry darling is the woman called Alice, who's paid by France Pugh, and she moves to victory with her husband, Jack, played by Harry Styles. And Alice starts to suspect that something is wrong in victory. She's particularly put off by Frank, he's paid by Chris Pine, who is the sort of enigmatic leader of victory. And Olivia Wilde, the director, has said that that character is inspired by Jordan Peterson, a controversial academic, and his ideas about order and chaos are sort of run through the film. The film four shorts and the fact that it doesn't really delve deeply into the men's motivations for taking their lives to victory. It suggests that they're driven by a sense of masculinity of failing to thrive in the modern world and to support their families and their wives. But it doesn't provide a particular psychologically compelling portrait of these men. Well, never mind the emasculated men what about women and their rights and how all this looks 50 years on. I think the reasons that wives and don't worry darling are resonant stories today is because that nostalgia is still a powerful force, populist politicians are still talking about traditional family values and many of the legal gains that feminists achieved in the 1970s have either been halted or pushed back roe V wade was overturned earlier this year, the equal rights amendment is still languishing in legal limbo and in general this idea that sending women back to the kitchen is a way to deal with unruly women is one that remains powerful for people that think that gender equality has gone too far. Thanks very much for joining us, Rachel.

"Australians accept that. My guess is John Howard, talking about the COVID pandemic. It obviously means extraordinary circumstances. But how worried are you that the size and the scope of government has increased so dramatically under a liberal government? Well, I thought what the government did was necessary and it was a view of privately expressed when I asked about the treasure in the prime minister. It has expanded, but it was necessary. And it will contract, there has to be an end date for the emergency measures. But thus far the evidence is, that not only have we been remarkably successful in containing the virus in our compareson national Britain, the death right per head in Britain is 35 times what it is in Australia. Now that's a remarkable achievement. I mean, I don't say that happily or feel sorry for the bitch but the truth is that we have been very successful. Part of the reason is the physical stimulus and I think the prime minister and the treasury of both being very courageous and very steadfast on. You've said that economic reform is quote like competing in a never ending foot race. You know you will never reach the finishing line, but you dare not stop because your competitors will surge past you. Do you see any evidence that either side of politics is committed to the kind of economic reforms that will really help the economy rebound and far up entrepreneurial energy and drive investment for tomorrow's prosperity? Well, right at the moment, economic reform is not the top of the list economic recoveries at the top of the list. And we'll have to wait and see. But I remain of that view. The pressing economic reforms of 20 or 30 years ago were greater than perhaps people think they are now. There was a lot of, as it were low hanging fruit, you still had a regulated labor market. Sadly, we deregulated a lot of it and now it's been regulated again by successive labor governments in largely that re regulation has been left in place with some exceptions. Same thing with the tax system same thing with tariffs, but it nonetheless reminds the case that you can never go to sleep on economic reform and I would hope to see the cudgels of economic reform taking up again when circumstances are more conducive to it. My guess is John Howard and we're marking the 25th anniversary of his government's election. Let's talk about international affairs. September, of course, marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks. Now, the U.S. forces the steal engaged in Afghanistan. Now by most accounts Afghanistan and indeed Iraq remind filed states, were those interventions really worth it in hindsight. Certainly, in the case of Afghanistan, the objective was to make sure that a country that had been a haven for the tourists would never again behave in such a terrorist. And I think that mission has largely been accomplished although you can never be certain. It has been a long military involvement..

"Can understand why the Finn review that was really the in the Vanguard of the anti tariff argument in Australia. I quite understand why they said that if you look at the long view, you take the long view, we were a low tariff government. And very importantly, when hawke proposed reducing tariffs when he was prime minister, instead of opposing that reduction, John Hughes and and others in the Liberal Party on his was later then argued that he should go further. He did not take to his credit Houston did not take an opportunity view and that would be remembered because if the Labor Party, the Labor Party's decision to reduce tasks was the courageous decision. It was, in my view, the most courageous economic decision the Labor Party took in government, but it was greatly aided by the fact that we didn't oppose it. We supported it. It is interesting because if you look at the United States and America we're talking about Brexit and Trump and how globalization, technological change, many people believe has helped explain why so many working class folks have been the forgotten people. We don't really have that problem in this country. Certainly not to that extent. No, no, no, we don't have that to the same extent. And this has got a lot to do with the point of my earlier. We have found a sweet spot as a nation when it comes to government intervention. We need aven sufficiently to protect the really vulnerable. Whereas in Europe, there's over intervention and some of that intervention is impeding commerce and hiring in favor. But in America, the safety net is not as strong. And there's a house that's in the American welfare system under both the Democrats and the Republicans that Australians would not accept, and that's very important and it's very relevant for social cohesion. Well I guess as John Howard and you're on radio national with me Tom Switzer now, let's address the prominent social and environmental issues you opposed in power but which have now become the political mainstream including in Scott Morrison's Liberal Party. The Aboriginal apology. Well, I had reasons for that and I don't retract. It was a very Mexico, but I didn't think one generation could apologize for the climbed mysteries of an early generation.

"But there has been splintering of the right, certainly abroad. We mentioned Brexit that exposed real splits among the Tories, Donald Trump in the United States, of course, is bitterly divided Republicans. Now you dealt with hansonism in one nation, especially during the first part of your prime ministership. Do you think Craig Kelly's defection from the Liberal Party this week? Could that represent a trumpian split on Australia's center rod? John Howard. No, I don't think so. I think that's I've been dramatizing it. I'm sorry, he's no longer a member of the Liberal Party. I don't agree with many of these views on the pandemic, but he's entitled to have them. I don't agree with them. I think it's over dramatizing the significance of it. Greg Sheridan this week in the Australian says that Shaw mavericks have resigned from political parties before, but Craig Kelly has gone down a particularly Trumpist road in a particularly Trumpist fashion, Sheridan says this is a much bigger threat to center right politics in Australia than at my first appear. I am admired Sheridan lot and I agree with many of the things that he writes, particularly on foreign affairs, but I don't agree with him on that. Okay. How did I center right parties win over those traditional labor voters while keeping faith with liberal metropolitan voters? Well, they do largely what Scott Morrison did at the last election have sensible economic policies. Have basically a pro Australian foreign policy, not a foreign policy that appears to placate a section of the world or a group of other countries, but a foreign policy that is based predominantly on the Australian national interest. I think Scott Morrison has done that very well. I think if he continues to do that, then his appeal to enough of that segment of the electorate will endure. In the 1996 campaign writing about it, The New York Times pulled surprise winning columnist Thomas Freeman. He wrote a book called the Lexus and the olive tree and he claims that you believe that Keating had embraced too much economic reform too much free trade and that it meant quote Australia's most cherished companies were being bought up by global corporations based abroad and owned by foreigners. Thomas Freeman went on to say how a charge that Australians were losing their national icons indeed their very sovereignty and identity to the global marketplace. Well, it's palpable. It was palpable nonsense. And Thomas Friedman, who I now like a lot to have said that because to say that I thought creating embraced too much reform is a bit rich given that a lot of reforms I could only embrace because I supported him from opposition. And the very very last budget of the creating government, I've never forgotten that Kim Beasley who was in finance minister rang me the afternoon of the budget and I thought he said John do your lot still support the final privatization of the Cromwell pago. It of course, he said, well, I hope it continues because we'll need your support to get it through the Senate. It's in the budget tonight. And that was the final illustration to me of how dependent the liver party had become on our support to bring about reforms now that they still continue to be the best of them. Is your critics in the financial review? They said that you went soft on free trade. Well, you did put a phrase on tariff cuts on textiles, clothing and footwears. This is the financial review it means that short term populism under John Howard has been allowed to defeat the long-term national interest. Well, you have to take a long view about those things and that particular decision I didn't like..

"Hasn't been smooth. It's been chaotic. You you'll have people signing up for a vaccine and their appointment gets canceled because the government just doesn't have enough vaccine so a lot of the anger comes from the over promising. It's unclear if the government can deliver all of the vaccines. It has promised the prime minister said he would open up the country to tourist by october. I don't see how that's possible at this point so it will probably get worse in thailand before it gets better and patrick. Makassar is just over the border from thailand myanmar You've been covering the military coup since it happened in february and on top of that now there's a dire cova situation to what's the deal in myanmar in myanmar. The government after the military coup is not really functioning and since then the country has spiraled into madness with people getting shot in the streets schools in hospital. Shutdown occupied by troops civilians joining resistant cells. To fight back. It could be fairly described as a a civil war at this point. So can you imagine a worse situation to have a covert surge. That is happening. Citizens are just fending for themselves very few vaccines hospitals barely functioning. The military junta barely testing people. And so what i see in myanmar from over the border a long lines of people desperate to fill up oxygen tanks just to keep their relatives alive and because the military is so incompetent They are not participating in helping people refill those tanks at all so we probably don't even know how horrible it is because the government isn't competent enough to give us an accurate picture on the ground. The world's patrick win covering kobe outbreaks across southeast asia. Thanks very much. Thanks marco over the weekend. Thousands of cubans attended a rally in havana.

Research consortium of peru if is to multiple game. You're sorta go way but rome. If i cut it on my says that the official result him represents a vote for change. Because he's a member of a party that is rooted in marxism and leninism so for a country that is as conservative as pru is for voters to vote for a member of that party. It means that people really asking for a major economic change in the country so politically said horry. Custodio is very different from mainstream politicians in peru. I'm also casio's background. Someone from a rural and largely indigenous area is not common among peruvian politicians. How much was that. A factor in the elections. I think it was a big factor.

That's something similar to what we saw in the. Us election is what might happen in peru that some people might continue to say. We think that the vote was stolen and therefore he is not our president and also fujimori has a lot of political capital. Her father is the former president fujimori.

"Marco werman. You're with the world good to have you with us. This tuesday who is in charge. That is the question. Many haitians have been asking following the assassination of president. Juvenal moe's now. There seems to be some clarity today. Cluj zeph the prime minister who took control of the government following the assassination. He said he's stepping down. And reo anri. A neurosurgeon and politician is stepping up with merrin corsie editor of the haitian news outlet yuba post and joins us in port-au-prince the haitian capital with loft to so much uncertainty and confusion. How did haitian officials come to this arrangement to form a new well. There is lots of questions we're getting Very governments what happened as mr l. e. u. was selected. Today's to become prime minister by the former presidents. John movies. Mr early surgeon is very close to each ck. Which is the body of the previous presidents. but what happened is if you see the composition of this cabinet. It is filled with folks who are very very close to the speech. Ck putty for instance. You have Zeph he was the minister but he's back to his government as ministry of foreign affairs. So eliza people criticizing these governments saying Insinuation of the same old government of the ck and there is nothing new there. What role did the us and other countries. Play an advocating for this new leadership. Oh i think it's a critical war. I think nobody will argue that if it was not for. The intervention of the international community would not have these government here. I mean what happened is right after jesse nation closures. If resigned two days before yes nation as minister stepped in to feel the will and all the way wounded. Recently she was talking about building a government but coming. How can we don't know quite frankly what happens. And the international community make a u-turn and says oh actually again he is suppose to continuing with building his cabinet which is something that he was doing a before. Yes that's the president's so the international community plays a role but this is rather criticize if you talk to people in civil society equation over at least three hundred organizations get together to say that they set up a committee that will select the new residents and the new minister of the country so seeing the role of the international community not listening soup for in the civil society calling for change calling for a new government calling for something that is more inclusive than having the voice. Not being heard is something that is being very criticized here. So what is the prognosis for a prime minister on re bringing stability to haiti in the midst of all this well i think he gets lots in his hands. He's major concern right now. He's sort of strengthening. He's leader shipment his power because he's questions by a lot of people and people don't consider him illegitimate govan legitimacy anyway. Because you don't have anything in constitution or anything in the laws of the country. That says how you should run. The country weighing in virtually every democratic institution is dismantle. But he has of things in his end you have the security climates that he has to deal with you have the humanitarian crisis. That is becoming dire. You have fuel shortage knowing the country. You have the election because you still have to hold elections right. We don't know yet. What is coming which agenda he would bring but what we think will happen is there is no possibility and i don't think the international community is pushing for right now to to have election in september with low marine corps the editor of the haitian news outlet ugo post speaking with us from port-au-prince about the formation of a new government in haiti will thank you very much. Thank you in peru at long last president. Officially.
