Amid Brexit impasse, Germany urges no-deal preparations
"Germany's chancellor. Angela Merkel has told EU member states to prepare for a no deal. BREXIT documents seen by Reuters indicates that an extension to the transition period were in now is unlikely, so all twenty-seven EU countries need to be ready for the thirty first of December when this period and all to find out more hear from Anna Rosenberg, she's head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy signal global, and she joins me on the line from the black forest in southwestern, Germany welcome, back, monocle twenty four. And what do we know about this document? Well it's it's a leak document that was probably leaked on purpose to highlight that the EU is still very much also counting with no deal and I. think that's the whole point about the document. It shouldn't be a surprise really that the US still at taking a no deal outcome as a real possibility, it's probably more revealing that it was leaked i. think that serves a purpose, and the purpose is there to put pressure onto the UK. Is there a suggestion that for the show. This is an element of public brinkmanship, but does that accurately reflect the mood? What's really going on in the negotiations? I think it does, but quite frankly would have been surprised. I would have been surprised. The EU would not be planning for no deal. Anyway. It is well known that the EU has already implemented all of the preparations necessary for no deal earlier in negotiations, and so we've been talking about brexit familiar for years now, so you has really covered SPEC, when a no deal. Deal happens. Of course it would still be highly disruptive, but it's no surprise that the EU is planning to be prepared so i. do think that really the aim here is to ensure that the UK knows that the EU is prepared, and that it will not agree to everything to avoid an ordeal, and how serious a prospect is a no deal at the moment. We personally don't think it's particularly. Likely, we give it a twenty percent likelihood it's if you look at the negotiations over the last few years. There's one consistent sector and it's that no deal has always been avoided. By either extending the deadline or agreeing to some. Last minute concessions and I think we're going to have to into the same direction, so from our perspective we believe the most likely outcome for the end of the year is going to be a partial deal or recall it sexual mini deals, simply because it's the least disruptive outcome for everyone. However, even though that is going to sound like good news, it's still a disruptive outcome. Right the going to be sacked. Sacked, as it will not be covered by partial deals, and as such. There's going to be an economic hit.
Germany aims to reopen borders - what you need to know
"We're going to head across the board or to Germany now a border which opens officially on Monday the country has been praised for its handling of covid nineteen, but Deutschland Inc is immune from the impact of the virus is having on the global economy. So how can major corporations be supported by the government in Berlin I'm joined on the line from points dot in southwestern Germany by Anna Rosenberg irregular, and is the head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy cigdem global. Couldn't talk. Couldn't tack. Very good here for humanity. Oh, no is a great to have you on the program. Literally probably for the last what five or six weeks we've seen one German company after other, and these were really talking about global names that all of our our listeners will will be well aware of companies that touch people's lives Some have seemed to be sailing through this reasonably well, but we've seen of course many others and probably most the most. High. Profile instances is tons of which has been. In the news almost every day for the last two weeks on on business pages around the world, and with a lot of focus right now on major job layoffs that will probably see before their AGM it in the coming weeks. I'm very keen to hear how the story is playing out domestically, though because I think outside of Germany Anna everyone of course is seeing a similar type of story, the relating to how daylights bailouts might occur in Australia or Canada or elsewhere, but I. If we look at the front pages, if we look at what's being, said on the tag, a show how I would say sort of what is the mood and the reception nationally right now? I would say that, of course luther tons is a concern, but it's not the biggest concern I think that the German government has over the past few weeks, a lot of the things right and of course at the moment top of mind for everyone is the recently announced fiscal stimulus package, which is another one hundred thirty billion euros, and to support Jimmy consumers and business, and that's I would say currently preoccupying people's minds business all relief by the measures announced and I think that's overtaken the bad news from Lufthansa. Also you have to keep in mind that. Lufthansa was bailed out. Even though they are still of course, suffering, huge job losses, overall, there are some positive signs, and I would say that. Combined with the opening up of the economy, those all being well received. We've seen a consumer sentiment reports out of Germany as well, and and certainly there was a feeling a little bit early on that. Maybe people's fears were a little bit misplaced still fearful but if you look at the mood now, and whether that is just your read, for from where you're sitting, at of course how your consultant he looks at it. As much is of course what might be popping? Popping up in the pages of Honda's Blot you look at a stimulus right now. There's going to be cash handouts for families and a lot of money for every child. Does this raise the mood? And of course whatever economy looks at is consumer sentiment in terms of getting out onto the High Street shopping filling up grocery baskets. All of those things. Where where would you say the consumer mindset is right now? I think the consumer mindset is cautiously optimistic. Very cautious because I think that, it's not yet quite clear how this crisis will ultimately pan out. There's a realization that Germany is a relative. Winner or let's say not too bad loser from Kobe than other countries it's has. Done more than others in terms of trying to contain the disease, the government has stepped up significant economic measures as I mentioned before so those things at Kohl's obviously provide cause for optimism, and I think the the the money that the government will be handing out for child support another three hundred euros, plus lowering the VAT. All of that will stimulate consumer spending but I think it's too early. You're not going to see suddenly. Suddenly consumers go out and shop like crazy. Ultimately, these still cautious Jim and consumers that going to want to continue to monitor how plays out and I think once there is confidence that things won't get much worse. That's when you're going to see consumers. Step up spending I do expect this to happen over the next few weeks and months, and especially over the summer, because that's also when you just have a pickup optimism generally. Do! You think there's also maybe a patriotism wave, and that's a it's a tricky word in in Germany or at least in some corners at wet, better patriotism when it comes to a head Shelton, Deutsche signed a made a made in Germany feeling. Of course you can go to lots of grocery stores. Local markets and people want to of course singing, the praises of the of the Chicago this Baragan that's grown around the. The Corner, etc, but does that also extend you think elsewhere in in in consumer spending that people are are going to be thinking about jobs in Germany. It might be a little bit more expensive for me to buy that product, but it is made in Germany I. See that it is going to help the state that I live in or the state next door or is going to be driven by WHO's got the best price. It depends on your income. I would say I think that consumers that have a little bit of leeway will make those conscious decisions. They will buy local whenever possible I think. That's a trend that was here before. Kobe ticket buying local, being more environmentally conscious, making sure that your products don't have a very large carbon footprint that was here before and I would expect that consumers that are wealthy enough to afford to make these choices will continue to make these choices, but of course those that are going to be squeezed. They will not be able to. They're going to go for the cheapest option, and there will be quite a few of those as well so I. Think it'll be a mixed mixed back really and just before we go. We just maybe shining a spotlight on Berlin and certainly foreign policy a you and I have touched on. Whether the dock countries Germany Austria Switzerland are are looking to maybe come together a little bit and and show that there is there leadership even though these countries are also very disjointed in many ways, but is there a sense that you Berlin you now? I mean really also being recognized almost daily around. The world is having done a very good job, Switzerland and Austria as well that they. They start to convene big MESSA again. Of course, when when public health obviously issues and public health guidelines allow, because it certainly seems on many other levels Germany is trying to push ahead, but does it see itself as also being a commercial convener sooner rather than later because we've seen so many are still being so I mean I wouldn't say pessimistic, but maybe some would argue in business overly cautious. I think there's a big. Division in terms of the states in Germany about this topic. I would imagine that if you now see. Infection rates stay low over the summer which we expect we, we do think this going to potentially be another wave in the autumn, but if things go more or less smoothly over the summer, it's going to be difficult to continue to extend lockdown measures, and instead people will cool for more openings and eventually also call for mass gatherings, and I think that's what you can see things like larger messy mess, being organized again and large public offerings coming together, but I think we'll still a bit way from this, and I don't expect it necessarily to accelerate in this first half and second half of the year really. On Rosenberg from CIGDEM global in Germany very good to speak.

How Europe is responding to the coronavirus pandemic
"Want to start really by having a look at what is happening in this part of the world and certainly how countries In and around a Middle Europa at handled covid nineteen as pandemic some economic powerhouses. The United States of course the UK have had a bit of a miserable time. You could say but Germany and Switzerland are getting back on their feet and even in the last hour or so here in Zurich. We heard the country's main aviation hub of the national carrier. Swiss have outlined an incredibly aggressive relaunch plan. Of course if we go north to the border in Germany LUFTHANSA'S HOPING TO INC. It's bailout package to do a bit of the same well for more on this. I'm joined here in Zurich Rob Cox regular with us. When is the global editor of Reuters breaking views and on the line from start in south western Germany on a Rosenberg as also the line and she is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy Sigme Global? Welcome to both of you rob. I wanted to start. Do you think something is up? Maybe in this country I think also we look to Australia and certainly Germany as well as everyone starting to behave as a bit of a block at a time when everyone is supposed to be yes nice nice role in together are we moving into a period where people are maybe trying to score a few points. Released position themselves That look we are open for business. And we're moving ahead here. We're kind of in this competitive de Lockdown Mode. Where everybody you know? Calm countries like Switzerland which WanNa score high on the the Doing Business World business indicators and things like that and I think they have something like thirteen hundred. Us companies alone. That have offices or something here so everybody is trying to kind of to ease the ease travel. Do it in the right way. But also the same time to showcase that they've done a good job or a decent job of of battling pandemic of ensuring that their citizens have safe that that and doing it in a sort of you know an intelligent way And in some ways opening opening up the borders as a way to show that off now I think they're quite conservative. You saw you saw. The Federal Council was saying yesterday and in other countries. You know there are still this tension between the politicians as it were and the health professionals at still going on. We're still going to see that for quite some time. But there's definitely a sense of like like let's get moving again But the the the big issue though is you can't just apply what the Swiss do or the Austrians due to say London or Dublin or Perez and I think so. The worry is a little bit like we have these fights over tax policy right That you have this sort of race to the bottom in some ways and I think that's it's one has to be quite careful. So if the Swiss open up or the Germans and people say Look Frankfurt's open for business in Syracuse. Open for business. The worry is that these other guys. I don't know or London that engage a well. We better do it quickly. Problem is that there's no one size fits all for battling this pandemic Rosenberg. When you look from your side of the border but maybe across to Austria and Switzerland do you feel that may be an of course? Federal Council Minister over in Vienna yesterday front from Switzerland. Do you feel that the dock nations are starting to to get work in a bit of unison? Work as Mitteleuropa to say that we can together be the the engine that we can point direction. We know that this is a time of of not great central leadership. I'm not sure if there's really a cross border collaboration as as that. I think it's more happening more here. Is that individual states within Germany. I using this as an opportunity to profile themselves when you look at pandemics throughout history typically they benefit smaller entities smaller countries smallest state smaller city states. And exactly the same has happened in this pandemic and Jimmy Away is positioned the way is positioned also because of its highly federalized decentralized system which means you have sixteen individual states that can make their own lockdown and opening up decisions and these decisions currently being made. They're all over the place and I would say there's kind of a rather than we're in this together. I would say there's a little bit of a rivalry at the moment towards who can open up. Fossa who is more concerned with the health of individuals citizens than the others? So it's still pretty much an looking inwards would say Germany. Do you think that some of that also ladder is up though? I mean whether it's whether you're talking about Bio You're talking about no Don Volya that obviously people who are sitting at the Foreign Ministry in Berlin. There were trying to figure out. How do they put this into a concerted message Which they can put across globally? I get the sense. is certainly in Switzerland while the Swiss like to talk about being humble and they don't WanNa talk about having had a good pandemic you do get the sense here that they are trying to. Of course push their message. This is a country that is going to be open for business. If you need to come to Europe And hopefully do need to come to Europe to have a meeting. Then maybe you might consider coming here. I and I'm wondering if Berlin regardless of what it's doing with a federal structure with the states are doing they're trying to have some kind of unified message or no yes. Of course ultimately there's a lot of coordination still trying to be made on on the national level. Am I do think that Germany has certainly benefited from this Kobe crisis? It has turned a crisis into an opportunity and for a variety of reasons and I think Germany ultimately when you look at where Jimmy Stewart's just before the Kobe crisis it wasn't quite a weak economic position that was stagnation that was not enough of investment. Going on into key sectors of the economy that was all these arguments about stepping up fiscal stimulus and spending and constant pushback from the government that wanted to stick to strict fiscal prudence. All of this is different now. The government is saving business left right and center splashing out it's investing and the economy. The Gym Mindset has changed to away from Frisco prudence that was evidenced of course the supporting joint debt with other European nations. And so in a way. Jimmy's kind of taken an advantage from Kobe. In repositioning itself. And I think if you ask me what does Jiminy and the EU stand in one. Two years down the line. I think Germany will clear when I hear on that we just before we went on air we were talking and you just touched on Dublin Dublin. Of course as as essential in Europe which has done very very well at tech. But we're now in a moment right now we're of course. Companies are more mobile than ever. And certainly when you look at some of those players who are who are in Dublin. Of course their headquarters being On on the. Us West Coast yet. There is mobility They move around the going to look of course for the best tax breaks That are out there. Is this also time and again I mean. Certainly you see the power of the money that various spends on go and put your headquarters or least your your regional or European headquarters in Munich. For example do you see this kind of acceleration? Absolutely the ease of doing business index. This is this is going to be part of it. Everyone's going to look at how you did it during this crisis And I think and how quickly you were able to come out of it and I think come. Countries like like Switzerland Like some of the Nordic countries that have have done a pretty good job a relatively good job relative to France or the UK or Spain or Italy are so they're going to have a better pitch to make an a country like Ireland. Which is you know punches. Well above its weight when it comes to global headquarters for I say European headquarters for many of these TECH COMPANIES. The facebooks and people like that that is also

Coronavirus: Germany shuts down borders, halts public life
"We begin today's broker In Germany where people are being urged to stay at home because go with nineteen infection rates are rising. The country hasn't been as badly affected US off European power hoisted hoses like the UK France and Italy but there are fears that could change if lockdown measures lifted too quickly. Let's get more on this with on Rosenberg who is head of Europe and the UK at the political consultancy. Cigna M- Global an-and. Choice me on the line from the black forest in. South West and Germany good afternoon. How much has changed in? Germany changed since we spoke to you last week. Actually there's a lot of ambiguity about the fact if it has changed at all. There was a bit of noise yesterday because new data was released that showed that the infection rate has gone up somewhat marginally to one which is a measure that using here to see if it's going up or down and one or one point one is considered a dangerous state that could overwhelm the healthcare systems. But since the data was released yesterday there have been conflicting news coming out showing other numbers that actually show that it hasn't increased much. And that's just a normal fluctuations so all in all. I would say it has not changed dramatically yet so it is normal fluctuation when you look at those numbers until they they are not the same one all the time we see different reports. That's right that's how it seems at the moment however you have to keep in mind that the lockdown measures would just released a few days ago last week so in a way it takes at the minimum ten to fourteen days to see changes in infection rates because people have been stepping out more going more to shops etc. I would expect and a slight increase once the the numbers actually show the reality because just walking about over here at considered me say that there's much more activity on the streets. People are now going into shops more frequently. You even see kids playing with each other which they shouldn't be doing but you certainly see. That behavior has changed. Germans have been advised to stay at home as much as opposable is there. John's Berlin will still needs to rethink its next steps when it comes to easing restrictions. Yes there is a chance. I think that's not just the case in Germany. That said likely going to happen at one point throughout Europe. However the key thing about Jimmy's that these decisions are not taken on a on a national level for the most part Gemini is a Federal Country. Where with sixteen states where each state is pretty much responsible? For the lockdown measures it wants to implement and as a result you have very different measures and also some states. Favoring script lockdown measures over others for example. Bavaria has been on the forefront of very strict lockdown measures versus not invest fine which have been much Keno on prioritizing. The economy over health concerns. If you will so much disagreement. Has there been in Germany. Then over the speed in which. The lockdown measures should be east so over. There's an interesting shift in rhetoric occurring at the moment. Initially there was very strong support towards keeping the lockdown measures very strict. Everyone was in favor of that. I would say since the beginning of the week since the weekend that has been a clear shift in rhetoric towards the critics of lockdown measures becoming much vocal and everyone's starting to criticize the drastic measures and the impact on the economy arguing. That the deaths that we have currently seen do not justify the crippling of the economy. And we're hearing more and more prominent politicians make that point so even if you see an increase in infection rates. I think it's going to become politically more difficult for individual states and for for merckel overall to reimpose stricter lockdown measures simply because the the rhetoric and the discourse has moved on from where it was at the beginning Goodison. Could you tell us more about the situation? Merck finding herself in at the moment. So she has had an interesting few months obviously. She was a prior to the Kobe. Crisis in a very difficult spot with her party going through severe scandals and with the governing coalition being really close to collapse that was even talks about early elections. She has benefited tremendously from this crisis. Simply because this has happened across Europe by the way in times of crisis people want strong leaders. They do not want arguments between the opposition and ruling parties. So she has benefited from that. She has seen a surge in popularity whereas other parties especially the Greens and the IRA has seen quite a huge loss of popularity. And so she's been doing quite well but I do expect that we are now at the beginning of that popularity being eroded again and you can see that by the opposition voices becoming louder. Angela Merkel is due to discuss own thirsty as a matter of fact the next steps folded easing off lockdown restrictions with the state's premier's. What do you expect? We'll be destroyed them. Yeah so I don't think that. So many groundbreaking things are going to be decided. Some of the things. That aren't the agenda is to try and increase testing capacity further and also include new meshes in into that those testing results for example. They want to start to collect the people getting getting well again in in national figure something that they haven't been focusing so so much on they want to provide more financial support to 'em to care workers to healthcare workers. They want to increase a shorter works schemes. Germany has been quite helpful in providing salary support schemes for companies. They want to step that up and they're also going to increase the the ban on foreign travel. If you will so I think borders are going to remain closed for a little bit longer by the sounds of it Rosenberg. Thank you very much for joining us. Anna joins us from the black forest in southwest
"rosenberg" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"Hi everyone this is Chuck Rosenberg most important. I I hope this message finds you and your family and friends well. This pandemic as you know is hit communities big and small throughout the United States and around the world the number of people who have died or who are suffering from this awful disease is absolutely heartbreaking but together. I think we're making a difference. Thank you so much for heating the advice. Public Health officials listen to the doctors. Listen to the scientists listened to the epidemiologists following their guidance helps to slow the spread of this dangerous virus and keep everybody safe. We have a collective responsibility to each other. You know that and the duty to try to ease the burden on healthcare workers and on first responders. Many of you have written to ask whether the oath is returning. Will there be a third season. Yes absolutely we are coming back in fact. We were working on a terrific third season. When the physical distancing protocols kicked in so we have slowed production for instance no face to face interviews for now but we have not stopped our work. We finished the few third season interviews. And I think they're wonderful. We have more to complete of course when we begin to publish these interviews again. Hopefully in early June. I think you're going to truly enjoy our guests. We have a great lineup. For our third season those guests include Leon. Panetta the former Secretary of defense and director of the CIA and Kathy Sullivan. A former astronaut. And the first. Us woman to walk in space the Vet Murphy. The former surgeon general of the United States and many many more we have additional great guests lined up and some wonderful surprises. So I hope you'll be patient with us. We are coming back. I also want to say thanks to all of you. During the last two seasons I have received thousands of emails from you and I have read reviews and comments on the various platforms. That you use to listen to the oath. You told me that this podcast has reinforced a rekindled in you a sense of faith and trust our government and in the men and women who worked so diligently to protect and serve this wonderful nation. That is incredibly heartening. You've also sent.
Los Angeles study suggests virus much more widespread
"George Rosenberg epidemiologist UC San Francisco is with us Natasha cheetah is also with us infectious disease expert at Johns Hopkins medicine and science reporter Lesley McClurg and we've been talking a lot about the Stanford study which found that far more what is far more widespread coronavirus infection rates in previously thought Leslie McCurdy was gonna run down from you about the U. S. C. study how it differs and what it actually tells us in conjunction with a separate study or against we're talking about that the USC study looking at Los Angeles county yes yes there in in Los Angeles county I mean both studies basically find that the antibody rate is much higher indicated many more people had antibodies than than previously thought so in Los Angeles county researchers looked at about eight hundred and forty six people and they found that up to five point six percent of the county's adult population carried antibodies to the corona virus if that's accurate that would mean that more than four hundred thousand residents have been exposed to the virus and you know for comparison only eight thousand cases have been confirmed and you know around that around eighty eight thousand cases here in early April so when this when this study was done it was like a thousand cases so you know we're looking at four hundred forty two thousand verses eight thousand so if these test results are accurate which you know as the other guests have pointed out there's a lot of questions about our ability to know if antibody testing is really working but either way there may be many more cases than we thought and the prevalence of the virus in the community is likely much higher than we think in a tweet George was very from a listener named Michael says the criticism I heard as a Stanford study wasn't the people tested were not a random sampling of county residents well that is a criticism they tried to adjust for the advertisement the recruitment was through Facebook interesting idea but there's you know there's always there's there's sort of nagging suspicion that people who participated may have had like a like a previous like a previous caller discussed you may have had symptoms of thought they might have been infected and and went to participate in the study for that reason so that would skewer towards higher results obviously you need a perfect you know you'd come up with the perfect estimate for the county you need a perfect example and you know that that's just the problems of epidemiology it's a it's a a trade off between efficiency and cost and get imperfection on the other hand and you know what yeah well I just answer a question from a listener who says there must be antibodies formed or there wouldn't be a peak and decline afterwards an incidence well antibodies yeah that is it if they're older there's old infection antibodies are measuring older infection as Dr cheetah says it's you know they peak at around eleven twelve we first can measure antibodies around eleven or twelve days post initial infection so yeah they reflect what's happened in the past in the and to the extent that we see out of bodies it's question not up with whether they're there or not but how many are there what's the what proportion of the study population at positive antibody test we know that your antibodies we know that job bad days probably peaked here last week and we know that we're gonna have you know that there's been a faction circulating let me go to another caller and Jill is joining us next from Oakland show you're on the air welcome thank you for taking my call so I'm wondering when antibody testing is going to be available to the public I believe that I have both made back in late January and I contracted it from going to the pharmacy I was sick for over ten days had all the symptoms other than ammonia didn't go it down inspiratory system and I've been asking my doctor and health care provider for an antibody cast and they keep saying out loud not approved by the FDA do we have any idea when they're coming out let's have a clear sense of life here I think I think that the reason I'm I'm pausing is that you know because these antibody test are not necessarily accurate we're gonna get a lot of marketing I think we're gonna get point of sales and direct consumer tests on the market you know I think there's like ninety something available as George pointed out so but using those tests to determine whether or not you had the virus is questionable at this point because the thirties test are not necessarily reliable and there are a few that the FDA has approved but even those were really pushed through much quicker than we normally would we are really in an interesting moment you know for some contacts as a science reporter at these two studies that we're talking about this morning we never would have gone to print onto pre publications in a past era you know a few months ago if you if I was given a press release about two studies that were not in an esteemed journal and had been here if you would we never would have brought that information forward to the public but we're in a very different era so to address the caller's question antibody testing could be available you know very soon but whether or not the test results are accurate and really tell you whether or not you have the virus is you know really still yet to be determined and again if you have questions or would like to join us you can do so at eight six six seven three three six seven eight six let me go back to unitas cheetah a good question from Joe's question is the relevance of antibody testing what is relevant to have the test for figuring out when to end or loosen shelter in place well that's a great question and I think there's been a little bit of confusion and conflation around the wall of serologic antibody testing with regards to public health measures to you know ease up restrictions so it's one part of the arsenal of helping us control and the pandemic what what anybody can do for us is you know what we know is there something called her to me which is once another people in a population are immune to a specific infection it tends to keep infections at bay whether or not there's enough herd immunity is partially dependent on how infections and infection is so for example with measles which is I think one of the most infectious diseases out there you have to we will reach levels above ninety percent immunity to prevent outbreaks of happening some experts have estimated that given that the transmissibility and effectiveness of sars could be too we probably need somewhere between fifty and sixty percent of the population to be infected to upgrade amenities so what what's your article testing computer in terms of clinical easing of restrictions is give us a snapshot of where we are as a community in terms of how many people could potentially have immunity and again this this is provided that the tests are actually testing for true in unity but without other measures like aggressive contact tracing these meaning you know a health department here is about a case they go they find that case they test them and then make sure that that person is quarantining themselves and then test all the people who work closely connected to that person find more cases Quintino sites without those kinds of measures we cannot mitigate the epidemic and just knowing so logic testing is not going to help us in terms of opening back up easing restrictions etcetera unless we have that other piece of things which is aggressive contact tracing I do after a few days but I think we're a few months out from the reader program we did a whole hour contact racing I think it's interval just as you're saying it is but science is moving very quickly or at least trying to I'm wondering though since you mention her community what you would say in response to a listener name Angela who writes I've heard that Sweden is about to return immunity status my concern is that by isolating are we not creating a situation we are less likely to develop community and one of other viruses out there that we could also be susceptible to because of isolation and lack of community development thank you Judy I mean in terms of other viruses I don't I don't know if there is other viruses that we necessarily need to worry about people not getting immune to I mean most respiratory viruses circulate annually and those most viruses you do not have long term protective immunity in terms of respiratory viruses you know I think the question of should we just let everybody going to there's more immunity how to do the bit about that idea flattening the curve and so if if everyone gets stars Kobe to we're going to have the health system completely overwhelmed because even if you know the the the mortality rates are you know lower than what's been anticipated you're still going to have a lot of people going to the hospital needing to be an icy use etcetera and then even if we're talking about they were saying the fifty to sixty percent of the population of the United States needs to be immune to have herd immunity that is fifty to sixty percent of millions of people and then even if you have a mortality rate that's lower than what's been projected you're still looking at around you know sixty thousand or more people dying from sars Kobe to and I think the question is are we as a country ready to look each other in the eye and say that you know that's a that's a consequence willing to take and again I think what we focus a lot of mortality rate but we're not looking at again hospitalizations people going to the intensive care unit the stock quote les of people's health from having those experiences and what that does I think it's hard to incorporate all of that I think it's safe to say there's a major chasm between to detecting antibodies and interpreting them I think I've learned that from the stating that I've been doing index rose were do you have a comment about Sweden's approach no shelter in place order relying on people use common sense for more calorie rate six times out of Norway I think it's a failed experiment as far as I can tell a doctor doctors she was totally right we could do this assuming we know what antibody positivity mac but it would be that that the cost you remember the original projections are two point to one point seventy two point two million deaths in the US yes seems like pretty big cost to me water you can just hang tight and wait for vaccines also yeah I don't think it's a I don't think it's a great idea well since you mentioned that scene this is a little bit ominous question from a listener and polishes its antibodies formed or not neutralizing doesn't that mean that any vaccine might not be protective no I don't think so I we it has to be directed to I think an act of a vaccine directed against the part of the of the covert nineteen virus the stars Kobe to virus that attach is to the to epithelial cells through the Asian hub is to enable our receptor site you directed antibodies against that part of the that part of the virus the so called spike protein I think that has a high likelihood of producing immunity and that's in fact when we do look for neutralizing antibodies that's those are the types of antibodies that come that come up that are specific for that piece of the virus the part that attach as they were not saying then that sorry we're not saying that the infection isn't producing a body or you talking about it I think we're just saying we don't know if that's the case yet and can you answer a question from another listener doctor to entice you cheat against infectious disease expert Johns Hopkins medicine listen once in
New York - New Jersey Tops 51,000 COVID-19 Cases, 1,700 Deaths

Coronavirus in the U.S. - What lessons can we learn from Israel?
"Rosenberg is a senior writer for tablet magazine. He's covered elections and multiple countries interviewed. White House officials taken on Cyber Nazis. He's also a regular speaker and commentator on contemporary anti-semitism both online and off but he's also got a softer side for the last five years. He's been composing an original album of chabad melodies. He joins us now from his home in New York where like the rest of us he sheltering in place. Yeah you're welcome to the people of the pod. Good to be here. So let's talk about the hard news. I we are sheltering in place. What lessons can we learn from Israel right now that we should perhaps be applying here in the United States that we aren't doing so now yeah I mean I think that in general if trump look to people who he sees as his sort of political kindred spirits and other countries she would learn a lot about what should be done you know? Britain is doing a complete full lockdown. They're enforcing it with the police Israel today as you know when it through a similar sort of situation where they're basically shuttering all of the non essential things and people have to stay inside and there's limits to how you can go out and all of that and this is draconian and it's hard but if you do it quickly and you do it for a certain period of time. Then you hopefully really mitigate the impact of the virus on your healthcare system and then it can be at manageable levels going forward and then we have time to develop all sorts of mitigation strategies. Stuff that trump wants right. Whether it's you know anti medications that we discover a ten health which we already have or working on a vaccine or figuring out which places in our country we can open. Because it's not as bad but all of these things ramping testing. You just need to buy yourself time to do those things. The stimulus package will help. Don't you think or no? Yeah and there are better and worse versus of a stimulus package. And that's what's congress debating but one of the ways you make sure that you can get through. A lockdown is by supporting businesses in the workers that are being forced by the government. And by this pathogen. Not through any fault of their own. It's not like the banks best over people and then suddenly find themselves in a bad situation. These are people who no fault of their own are getting messed over economically so you want the government to step in and tie them over during that time so that way. They can come back strong when ready to reopen the economy. So that makes sense. So how do you think that the differences of opinion about how to handle this are going to affect the upcoming elections? Do you think it will play a role at all? Oh I mean I have no idea you know this from covering Isreaeli politics but anyone who makes predictions about these things is asking to look like a fool in two months time. Who would have even thought that there would be a global pathogen destroying the global economy two months ago right the factors that were certain signs of it. But you know people didn't know how far it would go and so on and so forth and so I wouldn't say that. That's the deciding factor. I think that trump will obviously be judged on what happens with the vice now if the virus peters out because there are for example competing studies done by very good researchers in the United Kingdom. One of which most policy has been made on the Imperial College Study. Which shows that really suppress this virus? It's GONNA kill millions of people in various countries. Which is why policymakers have made such hard stone calls on these things. But there's another study that came out of Oxford more recently where they said. Actually we think the virus lot more contagious than people. Think and many more people haven't which means that just a Lotta people get an and nothing happens to them. And we know that they had it but also means that it will spread across the country pretty quickly quicker than we thought and a lot of people will be immune and the virus. Will Peter out on. Its own at least for a little bit until we get another wave. Immunity wears off right well to be sure. Asian Americans are suffering the brunt of the prejudice. The blame the cruelty out there having to do with the spread of the virus but there are also a fair share of conspiracy theories bubbling up out. There that no surprise. Blame the Jews. I'm curious what you've seen out there since you monitor this kind of stuff. What have you seen that maybe does surprise you or at least shocks you. And how do you control the spread of that virus? Yeah so you've got to sort of antisemitic. Responses to the virus. One of them is what I always called the goebbels gap which is the amount of time between something terrible happening in the world and someone got away to blame the Jews for it. So that's discussing. Which is that there are people out there. In the conspiracy fever swamps to talk about this being sort of most odd thing or you know Israel operated thing and also other conspiracy theories putting other shadowy actress. So that's out there. And then there's another brand. Which is the sort that just celebrates when Jews die from it and specifically Israelis under the cover that anti Zionism makes it okay to celebrate when random people die right and so you had people after his run out this first corona virus death on social media? This was actually not a small tiny people. It was a lot of people tweeting horrific nasty things like. Let's go when they you know. Israel HAS FIRST CORONA VIRUS DEATH. And of course it comes out of course that it's an eighty eight year old. I think he was. He was eighty years old. The Holocaust survivor. You know wonderful. Lovely amazing human being and a lot of those people ended up looking particularly that of course. If this person was a truck driver it would just as evil right tonight to celebrate that person's death simply because of their nationality right so that's another way that certain people have exposed themselves right in response to the corona virus. And so you know you see both of those things. They haven't been super prominent. I think that one of the things that occur rotavirus world does is that it's sort of overwhelms everything else. So it's one thing if there's a terrorist attack in France and it doesn't affect the vast majority of people in the entire world so there's lots of people around the world who as their pastime could speculate which sadly conspiracy or Jews were behind it. But when like you're actually being actively threatened by the virus you have other things on your mind. You don't have as much time to get into super conspiracy theorizing of course after disasters. That's when people start finding trying to find people to blame and the Jews are always on that list right so that's actually sometimes when you worry

"That is that it's not over yet but it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders and his socialist revolution let's just put it that way it's out he's got it he needs a miracle to come back in and win this thing in the end it or don't have a shot at it he needs to do really well and a lot of these upcoming states he doesn't have my chart margin for error and the reason for that is is that what happened in the a few days after South Carolina was the Democrat establishment coalesced behind Joe Biden really quick and it's pretty clear deals Joe Biden's wouldn't on super Tuesday the DNC machine gave it to on they took it for granted I'm they gave it to him so there's a few things that happen in the lead up to super Tuesday that are really important Terry McAuliffe the former governor of Virginia former DNC chair endorse Joe Biden that means the whole Virginia machine got behind that's why does Clinton though he was outspent by eighteen million dollars by Mike Rosenberg so Clinton's hatchet man Hillary Clinton hatchet man have a cold AF send the message and and then in that in the state of Virginia McCall's machine went to work but I didn't did but barely any campaign events are spent barely any right in Virginia so it's like how the hell did he win that big sorry I didn't mean to say that that that bad everywhere here but how the heck did you win that big of a race on hi I'm fine in in Virginia to the point where Bloomberg didn't even get any delegates after spending eighteen million dollars there Bernie did get a handful of patents out of Virginia but that it wasn't just for Genya Beto Rourke came in from in Texas the genesis machine came in Amy Klobuchar who dropped out at the urging of the party al there's the behind the scenes people the Obamas and so on and so forth I I came in for I'm in Minnesota in Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren the supposedly leftist progressives socialists who really it doesn't actually believe in what she puts forward is more loyal to the party establishment that she is and to the ideas she supposedly espouses and she just dropped out today but she stands in Massachusetts that blocked burning in Massachusetts and in Maine Rodney near nearby neighboring Maine and so on biting winds all these states that he probably should know one and Bloomberg really under performed across Italy he's got already and now warrants out of the race and it's really a two person race and so again Bernie's gonna need a huge night in Michigan he needs to not just win message when Michigan who needs to win decisively he he are coming on Tuesday other states I the upcoming that burning is to do really well in other rust belt states like Maine upper Midwest states like Wisconsin or Pennsylvania Arnaud heiau Bernie Bernie has a swing pass show but it's not looking good form and it's pretty clear they came for Bernie on Tuesday night and they seem to have delivered pretty close to a knock out
A Rosenberg by Any Other Name?
"I'm Jason La Steak and I'm really excited to welcome Geraldine. Good a fan and Kirsten from left to the podcast today. To talk about Kirsten's book a Rosenberg by any other name. A history of Jewish name changing America Josie could offend. It's a scholar of modern your studies currently teaching at American University. She received her. Phd In history from Brandeis University in two thousand eighteen and her research is focused on migration gender and the intersection of law and religion in French. American Jewish history. And we're also joined of course by Kirstin from Agla who's an associate professor at Michigan State University's Department of History her book Rosenberg by any other name. Which we're GonNa talk about today explores the history of name changing in the US in the twentieth century and her first book American Dreams and not nightmares looked at secular Jewish intellectuals. Use of the Holocaust in the early nineteen sixties. Thanks Jason I'm Geraldine. I'm very excited to talk with Kirsten today about her book on Jewish name changing in the United States. I was really fascinated to read Christian books because he deals with so many different things. And one thing that really stood out is the question of the types of economic and social anti-semitism that juice faced in the twentieth century. And this is a story that has been obscured both in how American Jews tell their own story and how they really name changing itself. But it's also a topic that has been obscured largely in the history of American Jews. And so a lot of the discussion with Kirsten really centered on the question of how everyday life of Jews in America were is shaped by anti-semitism and how American Jews del their own story in their recounting of how juice change their names in the twentieth century. I hope you'll enjoy this conversation. Kirsten hiding for joining the Jewish history matters podcast. Thank you so much for having me. I'm really excited so I actually wanted to start with a joke. That's awesome so it's actually a French. Joke offense Jewish joke as I understand it. So it's a story of Mister Meshu Shoe Katzman. We'll goes to the French authorities in the early twentieth century because he wants to change his name. A finds that cats minis for to foreign sounding Fort Jewish sounding so he asked no. Would it be possible to change the name and the French official tells him yes? Sure Okay so what's your name Katzman. So he breaks cats on into to any asked him. So what does that mean in German and the Jewish men says it means Shah Cat in English Okay what does men mean and the men answers it means lum the men so essential official says okay. Katzman you are no no longer cats men but shallow brilliant. It is marvelous because it's really about how your revealing I see in the process of trying to conceal it as you say in the book. Jewish name changing is no laughing matter. We have a lot of jokes involving name changing but it is in fact a very serious topic and so I wanted to start the conversation by asking you why it is such a serious topic and also what do you mean by name changing because I think the readers need to understand what that meant in the American context so the first thing that's really important to say is I only looked at one archive when space for name changing which was official name changing in civil court. It wound up being incredibly rich space. But there's lots of other places in lots of other ways that people could change their names for example. When I started talking about my work I had immigration. Historians say but this is not the only kind of name changing that happens if immigration memoirs you can see and I teach for my students memoirs where people decide to change their name on the shop floor. You know all the people they work with at the sweatshop. I'll sit around and spend the day talking about what your new American names should be. There's definitely kind of informal name changing people sort of take on names and the US among if not the than among the most flexible places in name changing you can really informally. Change Your name to anything. You want without any kind of permission or official status whatsoever. And it's legal this Anglo American law that the US actually took it even to a greater extent in England in some ways on sort of informal name changing people's selecting names because they like them because it sounds good. Those actually are are themselves legal so people can really change their names to anything so because I was using official name changes in city in civil court. I was looking at people who chose to do so officially who chose to be having the state know about their name changing and so- choosing to look at official name. Tinging meant that I was also looking not just at the state it wound up meaning also that I was looking at other kinds of people who might be interested in your name private employers or universities or other kinds of places and spaces where they might these surveillance you. I think maybe watching you questioning. Why your name looks different from one place from the other? What I saw gave us a real insight into the impact of the anti-ageing and the importance of it which is actually kind of your second question right. Why is this important? Why is it serious? A lot of what I've found in the archives. I mean I think a lot of people would have found it boring people's reasons for changing their names if you didn't spend a lot of time looking at them. They were very boring. I want to change my name because it's hard to spell because it's hard to pronounce equal can't remember it. It's hard to say on the telephone. You know a lot of sort of things like that so you had to kind of read through the lines but also some sad stories people who would talk about being excluded in the military people who talked about their employer telling them they had to change their name when they got promoted people who wanted to erase memories of having escaped Germany during World War Two. There are a lot of those sad stories and in other kinds of readings. I did oral history is that I did. It's not always you know. Sort of a tragedy. But there's a lot of lingering sadnesses there's a lot of lingering ambivalence and I think the larger part of the story is people feeling like they had to do this. Some of the interesting part of looking at the state and the government's interest in doing this right and sort of making name changing available to people so easily right so readily you can change your name. Go ahead and change. Her name is volunteerism. The circumstances under which they're changing their names are not free and open they are constrained. They are significantly constrained not forcibly coerced. But they are constrained and sometimes they are being asked to or told to change their names by employers by military officers by defense industry contractors by people who kind of represent some kind of power and have interactions with Stay or certainly with their possibilities of getting a job and living in America. I think it's interesting that everybody's treated this so much as a joke that no scholar studied it. You know which I find really interesting right. That people have so far. Brush this and treated it as something that was not serious that was insignificant or Hurace. Something that was not really important so you actually mentioned the state a few times so I wanted to ask you about the state. What's at stake in controlling names and name changes from a state perspective so the federal government begins asking about name tinges voluntarily on Naturalization Petitions in nineteen of Sex. It is voluntary. It's just a line on your naturalization petition so I only did a very limited look at naturalization petitions but I found at least a few where somebody clearly had changed their name so that it looked very different but clearly the people setting this out that they didn't fill out a name change like the government didn't see this change in spelling as actually being a change in name. So there's a certain amount of laxity that European grants are being treated with in their ability to change their names so my story more begins with really World War One and then especially the Inter war period and World War Two and it spirals as the welfare state as the government begins to be concerned with issues of security and be concerned that the people standing in front of whatever federal worker may not be who they size so one of the most important things I think that leads to the nineteen forties in particular being. Sort of the place. Where you see. More of these official petitions being submitted than any other time in the twentieth century is that the government decides that during World War Two. It actually happened in nineteen ninety eight. They begin having defense. Contractors require birth certificates on so they can ensure the safety of their defense plates. So you see beginning in the nineteen thirties forties this kind of spiraling new. People start to have to produce their birth certificates in order to get jobs to become a part of the war effort which is where the jobs are happening and then as people begin to register for the draft or as they begin to be officers they are getting inconsistent right. It's not I don't think this is every single person who goes to apply to become an officer or to register for the draft or even to try to work for the defense industry but what you get is just more and more people who are getting defense contractors or officers or rotc people or whoever saying. Oh your name doesn't match you know you're going to have troubles you know you need to come back. And produce a birth certificate that matches so some of this is about security right security as the country is going to war and I think some of it is just about the government beginning to look to documents. They are trying more during the welfare state especially during the war to keep track of. Who's who I didn't see a lie. That was necessarily pushed by the Alien Registration. Act But that is something that is starting to begin to question people who have not become citizens yet so my gases that is playing a sub textual role in some people's decisions to do this. The state is beginning to keep track of people and so this kind of very open ended name policy which was working really to sort of bring white immigrants into the country and enfold them seamlessly as the US goes to war as it begins to offer benefits like welfare benefits but also especially as it begins to go to a second war it begins to want to keep track of people and it's using names as part of that way of kind of keeping track of
"rosenberg" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"Declare war Because they think in part they realized that it was the executive who had the ability to make war And that that and I think more properly coincided with this commander in chief title that the framers gave the president but this is an ongoing debate. And like I said earlier it's GonNa go on long after Donald Trump Is Out of office there. There's another element to all this too. We talk about here As well and that is how the public is processing all of this right now. Their reaction to everything There was a survey last year. Actually it's two years ago now. I forgot that it's now twenty. Twenty two thousand eighteen survey From Georgetown University versity that looked at Americans in their trust in institutions and it actually found there was pretty strong trust in a private company in Amazon But there was very little trust when it came to the executive branch came to the presidency When it came to Congress for that matter probably should acknowledge also very little trust trust when it came to the media? I I wonder listening to you. Describe the oath of office that you took how Salam the occasion felt to you how meaningful it felt to you. Do you sense as the public watches all of this that there is a cynicism that has taken hold that affects the actions of our you leaders. I think that's a fair way to think about it Steve. You know I've always said skepticism is fine and fact skepticism healthy. Cynicism I think is corrosive of and there seems to be a cynicism settling in as really ashamed because those institutions that you just mentioned right the institutions of government and the media via Are Among the most important institutions in the United States. They've kept US safe. They've made sure that we have equal. And Civil Rights enforce the law. They conduct intelligence. They operate the courts. These are some of the most important things we do as a society and for us to lose trust in those institutions Russians for that cynicism to sort of take hold at sad I think it may be deeply unfortunate and I think it can be highly corrosive and I worry About that Chuck Rosenberg. You've made our first crossover episode here in the MSNBC podcasting world a success. Thank you so much for joining us. Oh It's my pleasure. Thank you for having the Senate Majority Leader Mitch. McConnell and minority leader Chuck Schumer both addressed impeachment on the Senate floor today. Senator McConnell argued that the structure of the Senate trial should follow the same format. It was used for president. Clinton's impeachment trial just like twenty years ago. We should address mid-trial questions such as witnesses after opening arguments Sarah questions and other relevant motions there is. Senator Schumer responded. I just heard leader McConnell. Speak for thirty minutes on the subject of the president's impeachment went there was a lot of finger pointing name calling and misreading of history but not a single argument or discussion about the issue. And that's holding up a Senate trial whether there will be witnesses and documents not one mention. He has no good argument against having witnesses and documents so he resorts to these subterfuges. There doesn't seem to be much agreement there. We will see what happens when the full Senate is back in session on on January. Sixth but in the meantime if you want to know more about how the Senate trial might play out. Check out this past. Monday's episode of article two from earlier. This week article.

"rosenberg" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"A whether or not it's impeachable and whether or not he'll be removed moved again is a political judgement that the senators will make in. There's a point that the president has made in other contexts as well specifically. I think the molar report and in the conversation around. But it's also something that Democrats have referred back to During the impeachment drama in that is the president talking about article two of the Constitution giving him the breadth of power. He has basically allowing him to do just about anything. Also take a look at one other thing. It's a think world's else article too. Nobody ever mentions article too. It gives me all of these right at a level that nobody has ever seen before. We don't even talk about article article. It's an argument. The president has made those powers those article to powers. How do you interpret the limits on them given what's in the constitution article two does confer broad powers on the president but certainly not unlimited? Let me just give you an example. Steve no question that the president has the authority in fact the constitutional authority to grant pardons or to nominate men and women to serve as federal judges or ambassadors. But I don't think anyone believes that that power power is unlimited meaning for instance if he wanted to make Steve Kornacki The United States Ambassador to France. Fine have at it. That's great But he couldn't and do it in return for a five million dollar cash payment that would be corrupt and so whatever. The contours are of presidents power under article two of the Constitution. Shutian as commander in chief or to exercise pardon authority or denominate men and women to the Federal Bench. It has to at least be constrained By the notion that you cannot act corruptly and it's also balanced by other powers that you find in the constitution ascribe to other branches of government. And there's always a fight over that by either way between the legislative branch and the executive branch often with the judicial branch. You know trying to weigh in and Determine the contours of that authority but it is absolutely absolutely not unlimited For the record I would decline the nomination to be ambassador to France. Too much travel for me. I'd hold that for Canada. I think I could probably handle. Oh that one let me follow up on that though because I think that you raise an interesting hypothetical there you're painting a scenario where okay five million bucks in cash. President gives out an an appointment clear clear corruption there but it does point to some pretty significant grey areas. Here doesn't it thinking of not five million bucks give into a president by an individual but five million bucks given to the campaign given to organizations supporting the campaign. That seems common when we talk about Ambassadorial appointments other appointments. It's in government. It seems to be a gray area there. Well look. I think you're right. I think all this behavior that we're talking about is on a spectrum from surely innocent to purely corrupt and the example. That you've just drawn I think is a great one steve. Because it shows you that it's not always easy to determine You know the difference between Corrupt Behavior And behavior that we think of as unseemly and behavior. That's perfectly okay in the eyes of just about anybody right. It's all on a spectrum but but You know the example. I use the five million dollar cash payment to make you ambassador to France even if you would turn it. Down is clearly clearly corrupt. An article article two cannot possibly be read. Not by any sane person to permit that you know where it really comes into play the article to authorities of the President and and the contest with Congress over whether or not it's legitimate is in the power as commander in chief right to make war to launch airstrikes to sending troops hotly debated During World War Two in the Korean War the Supreme Court granting a lot of authority to Franklin Delano Roosevelt With his article to Commander in chief hat on But actually restricting Harry Truman in some important ways when he tried to exercise similar powers during the Korean Rian War so this is a long standing debate it will go on well beyond the presidency of Donald J trump. We're GONNA take a quick break chuck but stick with with us. 'CAUSE WE'RE GONNA be right back. Pay Everyone Steve Kornacki here I wanNa tell you about an NBC news podcast. I'm hosting uncalled article. Two inside impeachment. It's exclusively dedicated to bringing you the latest developments on the impeachment of president trump.

Willie geist here this week on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast. I sit down with rapper. Actress Comedian Aquafina Vena to talk about her huge year with roles in crazy rich Asians and oceans eight. The podcast now for free wherever you download yours. I WanNa talk about how the idea oaths has played out in other impeach. We don't have many examples from the past but we do have one we reference it here frequently Bill Clinton and in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight nine hundred ninety nine back then. With Bill Clinton. He was impeached. One of the charges. It was perjury. It was that he had lied to a federal grand jury about an extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky. Henry Hyde the judiciary committee chairman back then Republican from Illinois. He made the case back then. That Clinton had violated waited the oath that he took when he gave that testimony with the office of the president of the United States. The personal fate of the president is not the issue. The political fate of his party is not the issue. The Dow Jones Industrial Average is not the issue. The issue is perjury lying under growth that oath constituted a compact between the president. The American people that compact has been broken. The People's trust has been betrayed. It's interesting to look at. How oath were invoked back then chuck into remember that certainly in in public opinion and as it turned out in the Senate that argument we did not carry the day back then? No it didn't You know sometimes where you stand depends on where you sit. And you're seeing some of the arguments advanced today by Republicans Skins Echo eerily arguments advanced back then By Democrats when Bill Clinton was president. What's disappointing to me? Is that the president's conduct president trump's conduct seems to be Very much like what. The Muller team found with respect to Russian interference in our twenty sixteen election by that. I mean an attempt by president trump to get Ukraine to interfere in the twenty twenty election and that goes to the heart of the president's public conduct or if you will misconduct. I don't in any way condone. What Clinton did I thought his behavior was awful? Awful and lying under oath is not something I would have tolerated as a federal prosecutor. In fact I prosecuted people for doing exactly that but Clinton's misconduct act Didn't go to the heart of our electoral system as bad as it was again. I don't condone it in any way. It didn't go to the very fabric of our electoral taurel system. And that's what's so dangerous about President Trump's behavior now senators can decide whether or not that's impeachable. They ought to decide it in in a fair and impartial way. That may just not be happening. There's also we mentioned Clinton there's another parallel here with where the news is right now in in an where. It was back during his impeachment as Bill Clinton was impeached by the House. In December nineteen ninety eight. He launched Operation Desert Fox airstrikes in Iraq Iraq. Their purpose is to protect the national interest of the United States and indeed the interests of people throughout the Middle East and around the world now now two decades later we've got pending Senate trial and military action the president authorizing military action drone strike. That killed the Kassam Sulamani. Top Top arrhenius general. We took action last night to stop a war. We did not take action to start a war. Flinty of Democrats out there right now saying the president had an obligation to consult Congress on this that he couldn't and shouldn't be doing this unilaterally You've got Republicans out there A saying he had the right to do that. He's got the the right. Under the two thousand one and two thousand to a military authorizations in the wake of nine eleven that Congress never pulled back in and I and therefore citing an imminent threat from terrorist he can he can authorize it. I'm curious what what would you make. Yes so this. Is that age old debate Under Article One of the Constitution Congress has the authority to declare war and also to appropriate money for the Department of Defense for our Armed Services under article Michael to the Constitution. The president is the commander in chief and when I referenced earlier you know what. The Supreme Court did with respect to Presidents Roosevelt giving him free rain or largely free rein and how the Supreme Court sort of restrained or reigned in President Truman. That goes to the very heart of this question. In fact when the framers were considering that power of Congress to declare war one of the debates they had in the constitutional convention mentioned was whether Congress could make war or declare war and they settled on.

He has also served in senior positions at the Department of Justice in the FBI BI and as the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration Chuck is currently in MSNBC contributor. End the host of the PODCAST. The Oath Shock. You've got a resume that puts us all certainly only meat ashamed but welcome. Thank you for being here. I think the only thing that proves Steve is. I can't keep a job okay. Well that's one way of looking at it I guess The theme today a oaths the theme of your podcast. Obviously I'm curious. Every four years we watch the president of the United States. Take the oath of office from the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. If if we serve on a jury we maybe we'd been sworn in as a juror. Maybe we've seen a witness sworn in on a in a movie about a courtroom scene we've seen oaths and I think at least again against speaking from my own experience that they often seem very sort of ceremonial formulaic. I I wonder about your experience. You've taken I think ten oaths In in positions of high public trust. What is your experience like being administered one of those oaths and is it something that lingers with you once? It's an office But what are the mean to you. Yeah I I have taken it I think ten times. I've also administered Steve. Perhaps hundreds of times. I'm most recently when I ran the. Da To new special agents to new diversion. Investigators to new intelligence analysts and two chemists And I gotTa tell you it is is a very solemn moment it may seem formulaic But it's not and something that stays with you and stayed with me all of my professional life. I remember number where I took it. I remember who administered it And I remember thinking this is a big deal can you think of one of those Maybe the first time what what that experience was like. Take us back to it very first time. I was a new graduate from the University of Virginia Law School. I had joined the Department of Justice through the attorney. General's Honors Program And with a group of ten or twelve brand new colleagues in a small conference room on the fourth floor at the Department of Justice The Assistant Attorney General At the time Shirley early Peterson swore Sahlin. I'll never forget it but I also remember Taking the oath when I became. US Attorney both in Virginia and Texas. I remember Bob Muller administering the oath to me when I returned to the FBI in two thousand and thirteen is he was just finishing his twelfth year as director. It's like I said a solemn moment and it stays with you. Do the words come to you at at critical moments when you have a decision to make when you face a dilemma. Emma at all are you. Are you thinking back to the words. Well I don't know that I ever sat down and said you know this is tough decision that I have to make. Let me pull out the oath oath and read it again. I mean it's what you really making is a promise to be diligent to be faithful to the constitution and to the rule of law. But I'm hoping for people who are drawn to this type of work that they don't need an oath to remind them of the importance the sanctity of the positions that they hold that this is who and in what they are and the oath is really a way of reaffirming that publicly. So let's talk about the oath in the context of this impeachment drama. The oath the president of the United States. I mentioned every four years January twentieth. We all watch on television. A new president or reelected president puts his hand so far some they'll ib. I be a her hand on. The Bible takes the oath of office from the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Talk about the contents of that oath. I think we all know no the words but what do they mean while. Interestingly Steve The oath that the president takes upon assuming office is the only oath in which the Constitution specifies the precise words that have to be used That's not true for the oath. I took it's not true for the oath that members of the House or Senate take only for the president and it's really rather simple. It's three dozen or so words. It's not extensive. It's not detailed. It's not specific. It's very sort of high minded. Its promise to faithfully execute the job and to preserve protect and defend the constitution of the United States. I think by design It's is not specific. We expect a lot from our president's Some of them have lived up to the promise. Some of them have not yet so in this current moment. You've got. The United States has been impeached. Democrats say he has violated his oath of office. It's a broad oath. Does that make it difficult for Democrats to make an argument or for anyone to make an argument about any president that they violated their oath. Sure because it's really not a legal promise as much as a moral I promise That presidents are making when they take that oath and so what may appear to be You know a violation of that oath to one person may not be a violation elation to another these are political judgments that members of Congress will make about this president or other presidents whether he has Committed high crimes crimes or misdemeanors whether he should be removed from office upon trial in the Senate. These are in the end political judgments. What the president promises to do when he takes the growth and what senators are assessing? Now are really much more in the realm of political judgments. We're all very familiar. Obviously with the basic the case that Democrats have made against trump. The idea that he for a period held up aid to Ukraine that the purpose of holding up that aid was was to try to get Ukraine to launch an investigation or at least to announce launching an investigation into Joe Biden. The argument that that is a violation of the oath where is is the violation of the words in the oath there right well it would be arguably that he didn't faithfully execute the laws of the United States that he didn't preserve protect protect and defend the constitution again. It is not necessarily a crime that the house has to prove that the Senate has to judge its conduct conduct now the conduct could be criminal but the founders were reasonably clear at least if when we think about what they were drawing on when they formulated our the constitution and came up with the phrase high crimes or misdemeanors to describe one way in which a president could be removed from office. High crimes and misdemeanors didn't didn't mean criminal conduct per se. It meant public misconduct. And what you just described Steve. What the president did with respect to Ukraine to try to to get it to at least announced an investigation of a political opponent? I think clearly constitutes misconduct..

Shen and my younger sister was a musician but my brother John has gained some following a sort of post punk kind of hard rock musician the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion was a fairly well known banned yeah. When did you figure out rob that you wanted to go to law school. And when did you figure out you wanted to be a prosecutor. Her will always kind of thought I'd go to law school like history and politics. I liked arguing with people I always kind of figured I would end up going to law school actually worked as a paralegal between college and Law Oskoui that didn't dissuade me from going to law school and I also always had in the back of my mind that I'd like to work as a prosecutor and work for the government why particularly being federal prosecutors gators Roy the best job you can have while still being lawyer. You're on the for me on the right side of things. It's full of human drama. There's a lot of interest in doing it. It moves more quickly than civil litigation so there's a beginning and an end to a lawsuit. You actually get to be a real lawyer. It's like the lawyers you see on TV. You're standing up trying to convince Vince a jury of of your case. It's fun you get to hang out with the F. B. I. Agents and people like that for most of the time you're trying to protect society to playing hockey and Lacrosse at Amherst Morris College you eventually went to the University of Chicago Law School. That's correct. Yep and what happened after that I went and came to Washington. DC and took good job a private law firm and worked there for three years to pay off few loans. I had from law school and try to get a background in litigation but always had in the back of my mind that I would go and work for the the Justice Department. How'd you eventually get in in nineteen. ninety-one the fiery the law was passed financial institution something something something act it was a an act passed in the wake of the savings and loan scandal in among another things that provided for the hiring of a number of federal prosecutors to pursue bank fraud claims and that's what I was hired outside in the criminal fraud section of main justice and at this was after spending a couple years trying to get into a US attorney's office somewhere but I was hired at the Criminal Fraud Section Main Justice and started working on bank fraud fraud cases and they had at that point to task forces out of DC one in Texas and one in New England was assigned to the New England Bank Fraud Task Force. Did you like like that work. I liked it at bottom when you get to look at the documents and talk to witnesses and realized there were people who were lying and cheating to steal money from mortgage holders in the federal the government but it was slow moving there was not a lot of work for a lot of new prosecutors and so in nineteen ninety two. I got myself assigned as a special assistant the US attorney to the Eastern District of Virginia Alexandria which is where we first met which is where we first met and it was just an eye opener is fast moving. It was fun you got to stand up in court at least three or four times a week if not every single day and then I spent the next several years trying to get back there permanently and finally got hired magazine Assistant. US Attorney in the summer of Nineteen ninety-five remember your first trial efforts trial is a special was a guy name Moma's Aku he was a west African immigrant granted. He was involved in a scheme to sell false Liberian birth documents because at that point if you're of Liberian origin you're eligible for what was called temporary protected acted status and so along with a gentleman who ended up pleading guilty who worked in the Liberian embassy. It was a scheme where every immigrant of west African African origin who wanted to get into the United States suddenly showed up as Liberian and was granted temporary protected status so massacre was part of that scheme and he went to trial Elon Musk convicted what happened to him. I did some time in jail and then I assume he got deported but I had no idea I know in your career because we worked together for so long that you had some of the most interesting important cases in the Eastern District of Virginia on particularly when you started a little bit later in your career working on national security matters including espionage wanted ask about a couple of those if you don't mind as you know well the Eastern District of Virginia includes the CIA the Pentagon John and a number of other national security installations and so we naturally got a bunch of espionage cases including the the largest naval base in the world in Norfolk which is also part of the Eastern District of Virginia right. You had a couple of espionage cases that I think are fascinating but not well known. I was wondering if you might tell us a a little bit about the squillacote matter so Terry Squillacote and her husband Kurt stand and a friend of theirs named James Clark were ideologically motivated evaded spies who were originally recruited while they were in college in Wisconsin by the East German security service Stasi when there was an east Germany and then after after the the wall fell and there wasn't an East Germany the US obtained the Stasi's file agents in the United States and on that list was Terry Squillacote coat and so the FBI started watching Terry Squillacote and there was no east Germany but then at one point she took out a post office box in a false name in wrote to the communist leader of South Africa pledging that she that she wanted to get back in the in the espionage game and the FBI set up a false false flag and met her at the time she was working in the Pentagon and had recently obtained a secret clearance and showed up to a meeting with someone she thought was a South African intelligence agent and actually was an undercover FBI agent by false flag. You mean a lawful undercover sting operation correct and what about her husband and Mr Clark so Jim Clark had worked for the State Department for many years our state our State Department and he actually would send information nation to his German handler and he ended up pleading guilty and testify against the other two trial. He never had much of access to national social security information. He didn't have a security clearance at least at a at a at a high level but he's still trained and sent information to his East German handler. Kurt stand that was Terry squillacote husband. His role was a recruiter and he was the one.
"rosenberg" Discussed on The Oath with Chuck Rosenberg
"Welcome to the oath. I'm Chuck Rosenberg. And I am honored to be your host for a series of fascinating conversations with interesting people from the world of public service today. Jim Komi the former director of the FBI is back. If you haven't heard my first interview with Jim, please go back and listen to learn more about his formative experiences as a young prosecutor in the storage, southern district of New York office in Manhattan, where he prosecuted, the mafia today we pick up with Jim in nineteen Ninety-three. He has just returned to public service this time in the US attorney's office in Richmond, Virginia, where he confronted one of the highest per capita murder rates in the nation. I was on my way to breakfast with the deputy chief of the police department one morning and he got a call over the radio and asked me where I would mind stopping at a crime scene with him. So I said, sure, and we stop an intersection Richmond, and there's a new pickup truck sitting at a stop sign, and as a woman in the driver's seat looks like she's napping leaning back against the headrest as we closer. We see that she has a small hole in her left temple and a much bigger hole. On the other side of her head where the bullet exited, she had stopped on her way to work to buy drugs gotten into some sort of argument with the dealer who shot her in broad daylight at his spot. Makes no sense for all kinds of reasons. But these were the kind of killings were seeing all over Richmond, and it was murder at as an afterthought. And so I was part of an effort with federal state, and local law enforcement to see if we couldn't change the behavior of criminals in Richmond to drive down the murder rate, and it focused on trying to make them think more about their possession of firearms because they're no carefully plan murders in Richmond. It was all what you say, would you do, and in a shootout, we were trying to use federal sentencing to scare them into being away from their guns. Keeping a distance from their guns. And we thought that might drive down homicide, call this project exile. Yep. Where do you get the name from the notion that this was about taking criminals who terrorize in the community and removing them from the community exiling them from the community and a big part of the? Campaign was to scare them. And one of the elements of that scaring was the prospect of going far away from where you would normally go, which is the Richmond city jail. We're gonna send you to South Dakota. We're gonna send you to big bend, Texas. So as the notion, even though you're working with a state and local partners of federalizing gun violence. Great using federal punishment for gun possession crimes to impose stiff penalties which they weren't getting in the state system, and to remove them from the community physically in a way that was a source of deterrence. It scared people, do you think it worked? I think it surely contributed to significant drop in Richmond's homicide from the kind of cases that the Richmond PD was reporting where they were seeing a drop in homicides. It was all of those happenstance homicides, but the drug related crime, dropped significantly not all of our federal judges were enamored with project exile. No, some of them, embraced it and understood. Good though. These weren't the typical cases that would be brought in federal court, these were still federal crimes, and the goal was one that there wasn't any more important than saving human lives, that was at one end of the spectrum. The other end of the spectrum was open hostility to it in a sense that this was a failure of the local courts and prosecutors to handle this. Well, and so it ought not to be the problem of federal judges in federal prosecutors, but they have sort of less to do with how you charge. And so, in the end federal prosecutors if they perceive, a particular problem in a particular jurisdiction have enormous power to address it. Yes. And the decisions in the federal system about what to investigate what charges to bring are all in the hands of the prosecutor and although I was probably a little bit arrogant in agglomerated, the importance of the personal relationship, especially in a small jurisdiction with. With the judges, because they can bring you pain, if they think you're not treating them with your procreate, respect is I if I had to do over again, I'd be a little more attentive to that. Because my attitude was look, we're trying to save lives here. Screw them and not every federal judge reacts well to that. Kind of approach. Right. A second problem that you confronted in Richmond was a public corruption. And you tell very interesting story about the former mayor of Richmond gentleman named young ki- talk a little bit about that, and why that troubled you so Leonidas young was the mayor of Richmond. And the senior pastor at one of Richmond's, most important and largest historically, black congregations, and he was also simultaneously carrying on multiple sexual affairs with people not his wife and the costs of that dinners and hotel rooms and gifts was overwhelming him. And so he decided to use his role as mayor to try and get some money. Illicitly and one method involve the privatization of city cemeteries. And so they entertain bids from companies and the companies were told on the side, if you want to get this contract, you need to hire consultants the following people. And these were people who are simply fronts for mayor young, the company would write a check to the consultant who would cash it and turn the money over to mayor young. One of those consultants was a junior minister who worked at Young's church and young him to be a consultant on the cemetery deal. And we brought him in to talk to him about that. And we had the, the goods on, and we could see where he cashed the money. Then we could see deposits at Young's Bank close proximity. We could almost draw dots on a map to connect it. And the guy knew nothing about cemeteries, and he started to lie to us, and I begged him not to lie. What did you beg him not to lie? Because he seemed like such a good person. Look, sometimes good people. Do bad. Things, especially when they're under the controller in the sway of powerful figure. They look up to and here was the senior pastor the mayor told him to do this, and so he did. It felt like he had to protect this mayor. This minister this boss. He was getting very little of the cut he was getting nothing. He was doing it because this was something that leonide as young wanted him to do. And, and I just thought the guy's going to ruin his life for this, this corrupt mayor. We're gonna make against case against the crap mayor anyway. And I told him and you know what's going to happen? He's going to sit in the same cheer year in and tell me the you lied today. And then you know what I'm going to have to do. I'm going to have to prosecute you because lying in a federal criminal investigation must be taken seriously. So I said, please, please, please just tell me the truth. We're not going to prosecute you just tell me the truth, and he wouldn't. And unfortunately that future I've. Predicted came true. We indicted, Leonida Xiang for racketeering, all kinds of corruption offenses. He played guilty. And he cooperated against the junior minister flipped on the junior minister as we predicted and said, of course he lied. Of course he didn't. He wasn't a consultant, of course, he gave me the money. Yes, all these deposits, you see your for the money, he gave me and then we prosecuted that union minister, and he went to jail for fifteen months. And I don't use his name use it his name now because I hope he's made a good life for himself. But to me, illustrated, a lot of things, but the most important thing is our criminal Justice system. Our investigations are based on an honor system that witnesses will tell us the truth, the witnesses when they're giving subpoenas. We'll give documents even those documents may hurt them. And because it's an honor system when this violation that we can prove beyond a reasonable doubt, as prosecutors. We have to bring those cases too. To send a message of deterrence and reinforcement to that honor system, or the system doesn't work, right. But the odd thing here is that you're cooperating witness was senior to the person who was cooperating against usually we work in the other direction. Ideally. Yep. Did that trouble you? Yeah. Which is why I was trying so hard to get this guy just to tell me the truth, because I knew there would come a day when to try reduce his sentence mayor young. We try and offer us all kinds of information. But I knew one of the things he would tell us is this guy committed a crime in your office, and we couldn't let that go. You later moved back to New York City you in fact, became the US attorney for the southern district of New York, storied office, a legendary federal prosecutors office, and you had the biggest job in it. I know it's a great honor because I had the privilege of doing something like that. And the point in my career. How did it feel to go back to New York as the boss? I felt like an impostor which I think is a healthy reaction that I kept thinking, what am I doing here and I would actually refer to the US journeys private bathroom as Rudy's bathroom and I would tell people you want us Rudy's bathroom, and it's just hard to realize you're not only grownup, you're now, the boss of this place where you came up. And so it's a it's a bit disorienting and leaves you with a sense that they're all gonna figure out that I'm not what they think I am. You've spoken eloquently about the impostor syndrome, in many different contexts. In fact, you speak about it later in your book, and I'll ask you. But when you do you say it's something that leaders should have at least good leaders in your experience. Do they? All good leaders, I think all people except for very small slice of unbelievable jerks. Feel a sense of the imposter complex that is the notion that if you really knew me the way I know me you would think, less of me that's healthy. It can be disabling because there's some people who, who are who are Phil themselves such impostors that it hurts them. But that sense that I am not all that. I'm not as cool as everybody thinks. I am. That's humility, and that's really, really important in a leader. And how do you overcome it? Then when you are, perhaps Charing meeting, and people are sitting around the table waiting for something brilliant to come out of your mouth. How do you how do you surmount that imposter syndrome by not trying to be something other than what you are? That is by showing them yourself by giving them transparency into your strengths and weaknesses. Sure. They, they may think less of you in some senses than they did. They may realize you don't speak seventeen. Languages or something. But they'll come to realize you're comfortable enough in your own skin to talk about yourself in an honest way. And that creates an environment of extrordinary.
