"CNN plus has shuttered after a couple of weeks. And Twitter is now going to receive a tender offer. And tender offer means that the board of directors will not be the only ones that vote on this, and tender offer means every shareholder will have an opportunity whether or not to accept or deny the bid from Elon Musk. So I'm going to tell the guy that manages my stocks for me. Hey, go buy a couple shares of Twitter. I'm going to go vote on it. So I'm going to go buy order Twitter shares are probably up today on the news if I'm not mistaken. Yeah, they're up a little bit and actually not that bad. It's 46 bucks. It is the least I can do. So I'm going to send a text in the break. Say, hey, go buy a couple shares of Twitter. And by the way, if the tender offer goes through, the stock price is going to go up. And this is all public information. And so I'm going to do that. You should as well if you want to vote on whether or not Elon Musk will should be able to take it off. You want to talk about democracy dying in darkness? Well, let's turn Twitter into a democracy at least for right now. Let's all go buy shares and we can vote on them. Producer Andrew is going to buy some. I'm sure producer Connor will and we're just going to get, I'm going to, for anything else, then I want to be able to vote on Elon Musk doing a tender offer to take over Twitter, which I believe is fundamental for online discourse and for a free society. And if Twitter craters, I'm not going to go buy a bunch of Twitter stock I'm going to buy a couple shares. It's like whatever it's like. It's like going out to lunch now, $46, unfortunately, going out to lunch is a lot cheaper than that. So I encourage if you're interested in actually saying, what can I do? You go buy a share or two or Twitter, a tender offer, you'll get something in the mail, or you'll get notified with an opportunity to vote on whether or not this deal goes through. I'm maxing out my knowledge on merger and acquisition law, but from every expert I've talked to, and I've talked to a couple of billionaires in this business, just kind of texting back and forth. That all seems to check out and seems to be correct, as Elon Musk now comes with the funding to do that. Okay, let's get to some sound here cut 71 short Montage of mainstream media going after Musk for wanting to buy Twitter, calling the move dangerous play cut 71. Elon Musk wants to change the way we tweet, but could his obsession with free speech on the platform take us down a dangerous path? Elon Musk's hostile takeover bid for Twitter. Right wing media is celebrating Musk's bid, saying he's going to rescue free speech. You know, it's kind of funny. Elon Musk wants to play it, but there are massive life and globe alter altering consequences for just letting people run wild on the thing. The media is collectively losing its mind. They're doing everything they possibly can. To try and stop it. I mean, even calling Saudi princes to come in like, yeah, let's go, trust the Saudi princes on free speech, like you should probably sit this one out. Not exactly a Pinnacle of Saudi society as freedom of speech. I encourage all of you to listen to Elon Musk's entire TED Talk. And look, I've said this all in. I think this is, you need to have fair views of things. Elon on the Neuralink thing, I don't like it. I don't like it at all and I would love some opportunity eventually to talk to Elon Musk and have a conversation with him about this. Either on ear off air and really kind of dive into I mean, he obviously would make some brilliant points, I'm sure, but messing with the human mind, not something I'm okay with, not even a little bit. But The Boring Company to SpaceX, it's amazing. Now, Elon Musk looks like this is a tweet he put out a social media platforms policies are good if the most extreme 10% on the left and right are equally unhappy. Dave Rubin says the problem is that the right generally wants the left to be on platforms so they can expose the lunacy. The left generally wants people banned, fired, and erased. It's very true. And look, I'll say this, I don't know what you consider to be the quote unquote far right or what that even means. I have no problem, and I haven't had any problem with all of these maniacs on the left to be able to tweet out all of their nonsense. Just let us do that. As I continually am suspended from Twitter, and I refuse to delete the tweet. I just have to say, again, I am not taking credit for this. I can't stand what people do it. But just the fact that and I will, I will acknowledge this. The fact that our tweet about that guy that thinks he's a woman that runs the health, whatever, I can't remember what title it's like how bizarre, like rear admiral or something, I think that's right. Like rear admiral of health, the fact that we've even played a part in the chapter of exposing Twitter and the straw that breaks the camel's back of Elon Musk taking over Twitter has been one of just one of the most great moments of my life. Being an entrepreneur and running a business is not for the faint of heart. I have two jobs. I do the Charlie Kirk show till noon, then turning point USA till I go to sleep and all the problems in between. A lot of stress, 330 days on the road I spent last year. But if you're not careful, the stress can start to take a toll on your body. Raising your blood pressure, making it harder to sleep, draining you a vital energy and making you more irritable. That's why I recommend you supplement with magnesium daily by 75% of people are magnesium deficient. That number might be higher among business owners and sea level professionals. That's because stress depletes magnesium levels. This can trigger a various cycle of rising stress and severe magnesium deficiency. This deficiency can lead to higher levels of anxiety, irritability, trouble sleeping and low energy. It can even contribute to foot and leg cramps while you sleep..

"Because that mean that tomorrow, that banana is starting to go a bit squishy and a bit black and it's not so good anymore. More black, you know? How close how close arm would you to be? Because Madrid know this by the way. There's a reason they signed coming and there's a reason they have very Valverde. They are aware that at some point that transition has to happen. But of course, Luka Modrić keeps on putting it off by being brilliant. Yeah. So there you go. So the banana hasn't turned all black. Then you add a vespas to a Madrid back in 2003. I mean, I can't even believe my brain can't even process this stuff. I believe to score that goal, he was a famous goal where he dribbled past Hugo Sanchez and Raphael Martin Vasquez major anger dio all in one run. That's how long ago it was. I finally said, excuse me, played in Saudi. It's not unusual for super cups to even play abroad and say the eyes done it. Yeah, you can plenty of time. Where'd you go? Yeah, Morocco, he's right, China, Canada. There you go, all over the world. Kind of what the French speaking part I assume here? Yeah, it was real. But obviously with Saudi it is more of a loaded issue as well, given the human rights record. Were you surprised that raul Garcia, the Atlético bowel guy said before, but before this game about why are we doing this? Why are we going here? I was surprised because I was surprised that a player was prepared to say it. I think I should probably caveat this in terms of rail Garcia. Because Rao Garcia, the way he expressed this was actually not about the politics. He didn't talk about the Saudi regime. He didn't talk about Saudi society. He didn't talk about LGBT rights or women's rights. He didn't focus it on that at all. He focused it on a very, very much more simple thing, which takes it away from Saudi Arab and goes back to all those examples you were just reading out. On a very simple thing of this is the Spanish Super Cup. Why are we going abroad? Not just not necessarily we're going to tell you, but in Rao Garth's defense, because, well, I don't know if counsel's defense, but I think so. He talked about it as a part of a broader thing of not really caring about the fans. And here, by the way, of course, we have to recognize this. It's a narrow view of what fans are. You know, she's talking about the fans that go to your games every week. The fans that are in your kind of local community, which of course, if you play for athletic club, is an even more powerful statement in a way, because you're talking about a club that's very much of its community. And he said, we don't do things thinking about fans. So for example, he even picked up on or mentioned, you know, the games we play in Spain are at bad kick off times. We're doing things for markets and for sponsors, not the fans. And in that sense, of course, as I say, it's not about the political element of going to Saudi Arabia. It's about the fact that you're taking it somewhere else. And I want to slightly defend raul Garcia as well from the accusation. The inevitably has come from this, which is, well, you make a load of money because of all this. Well, he doesn't actually make a lot of money because of all this because this is the first time athletic club had been forced to go abroad. Now this cyber contract four years ago before any of these happened. So he's not saying let's not have money, that's not have commercial viability. Let's not Chase investment. Let's not say sponsorship. He's saying, let's not lose sight of those theoretically simple elements, and he also caveated this or preface it by saying, look, yeah, I'm quite old fashioned. I see the football in slightly different terms. So I don't see the hypocrisy that he's accused of because of the simple fact that he's paid to play football. That doesn't make him a hypocrite. What? Because he's paid money. He's not allowed to have an opinion. He's not allowed to say hang on. Should we stop this? I just think that's a nonsense argument. It just doesn't stand up, in my opinion. Well, if anything you could argue he's entitled to more of an opinion because he benefits from it. You see what I'm saying? He's actually advocating something that could be the detrimental to him. He's advocating not going there and not having that money. And you know what, if that means we have less and I have less, I still think it's the right thing to do. And as I say though, it wasn't focused on the political side of it, which has been talked about a bit, but less sona now because it's the second time they've gone. The first time they went, the president of the Spanish federation rubiales. I tried to suggest that this was a moment of perestroika. This was opening things up. We will go there and this will help women's rights. This will help open up Saudi society. He even tried to call it the Super Cup of equality. So, you know, by us going there, this will change things. I think this time he's realized that that's actually probably backfired on him. Out of it. Joe Joe's, I mean, as I see it, there are about as it says. The club is very rooted in its community and in the Basque Country and so on. Around Madrid, I think, in justice legitimately say, well, that's not us. We're a global brand. We have found some all over Spain..

"saudi society" Discussed on The Argument
"Know sometimes said that history repeats itself. I e repeats itself as a disaster and as a tragedy. The second time we repeats itself as a comedy once again. we are assuming that the aliens are benevolent. There kind hearted. People that will use their technology to usher in a humanity. Utopia i think that is silly. In fact it's a comedy dr vodka. Clearly you say that there are a lot of benefits we get. What would those look like. I think the benefits are that we can gain a perspective on ourselves and see from another civilization that it is in fact possible to get through this technological bottleneck that we're in right now to have confirmation that there is a civilization out there that may be able to provide us some advice. I mean as. I look into humanity's future. I do not see any assurance that we're going to make this on our own and so getting some input. Learning from the lessons from other civilizations in itself could be much more advantageous than any of the risks. I do want to emphasize a point where i agree with events yale and that is that the idea of benevolence of altruistic aliens just sending us something for our benefit. I think that's questionable. That is at the foundation of saudi society. Scientists say look the older civilizations they should do the heavy lifting. They should send us something. There is another form of altruism called reciprocal altruism where someone send something to another civilization and hope for something positive in return but in those scenarios someone has to take the initiative but the possibility is that the older civilization say look. Young civilizations are the ones who have the most to gain show. You've got some skin in the game and send us something and then we will reply. I think you've just laid out the argument that kills everything you've been saying you just stated in very clear language that you hope. The aliens will help us help us during this time of need. I couldn't believe what you just said..

"We have come here to let you know that change is coming whether you like it or not. Can we turn this around. Have no other option. The only option we have succeeded. What we do now and in the next few years will profoundly affect the next few years. So how much can. China's new carbon market help fight climate change. The world's a customer took a dive into that and has this report. A carbon market generally means that every molecule of carbon that leaves the smokestack has a tiny price tag on it they have a pretty singular goal says carbon market expert yen chin call. The market is a the market based mechanism aiming to reduce emissions reduce carbon emissions in most countries of carbon markets. The government sets a cap on carbon emissions. I e the power industry or manufacturing and then companies can buy or trade credits but altogether. They have to stay under an emissions limit. China's market is different. There's no cap. The focus is on the efficiency of power plants. The priority is that to improve the overall efficiency of the coal fleet to make the overall initial factor to decline as of this month. China's carbon market covers some two thousand power plants in china mostly coal inefficient coal fire power plants now have to buy credits if officiant plants have credits to sell. It's a baby. Step not likely to be closing down coal plants in the near future. China's seems to be starting very softly with with not very strict to targets. China is still building in planning new coal fired power plants whether the carbon market can interrupt that trajectory will depend on whether that first baby step turns into something more haiphong legion arlene sunny shed dot offering to president xi jinping announced in september that the country will reach peak emissions by twenty thirty and net zero emissions by twenty sixty to get their coal historic engine of china's economic growth needs to be phased out as the rules are now the new carbon market won't shrink the coal industry but if the rules change it could says you von lou china energy expert with bloomberg. I believe china will gradually tighten up the the rose like the price of carbon or limiting the total amount of emissions rather than just focusing on efficiency will definitely keep on watching how fast and how tight china can change the rules so now. The chinese government has a toll and any day they wanna make it more effective and efficient. It can be done overnight. Other carbon markets like the one in european union also rolled out slowly and we're eventually made restrictive enough to reduce emissions that something leash war with greenpeace. China hopes will happen in his country. Diversifies dion the twos data garment. Come us he said. There are indications that china wants to make big moves to clean up its power sector just this week. The government announced its considering boosting renewables to cover forty percent of the country's electricity by twenty thirty in the real life is eight needs to accelerate Moving away from coal. There's increasing international pressure to do that. Here's the un secretary general antonio gutierrez speaking to chinese university students. Last summer that he's such inga's clean coal and cultural. They have no place in any rational recovery plan. There's also the question of whether the market could help with the transition to renewables leash. War with greenpeace says a higher price on carbon would make renewable energy more financially attractive. I i have no doubt that the speed and the momentum that we have said over the past that kay this regard to win that solar development will will continue. The question is can we do it faster. That's that's the only question says the carbon market could be used to speed up that process. China's carbon market currently covers power plants that account for fifteen percent of the world's carbon emissions government officials. Say they plan to expand the market in the next five years to cover around eighty percent of china's co two emissions. That's a fifth of the world's whatever the chinese government decides to do in terms of its interventions into environmental protection can have overnight very significant impact on the planet is an environmental policy expert at nyu shanghai. He says the sheer scale of china's carbon market and the power of its government is a double edged sword. The market could be used to surveillance and control members of industry in ways. That are harmful or unfair. And there's the issue of transparency. China doesn't have a stela track record of being transparent with its own data so overall i think the idea of carbon market can only work if there is a robust monitoring reporting and verification system. Next month china will release. Its next five year plan and that will likely provide information about the role of the carbon market will play in reaching the country's nets goal for the world. I'm ana customer. She done nothing except champion. A woman's right to drive a car. But yesterday saudi arabian activists widow. Jane hathloul was released after a thousand and one days in prison. Family members and international human rights groups have been calling for her release and an end to her alleged torture. Al hathloul was arrested in two thousand eighteen for leading a campaign to grant women the right to drive in saudi arabia. Dr best mamani joins me. Now she's a professor of political science at the university of waterloo canada. Welcome to the program. How significant is this Lujan al hathloul release from jail. Well it's just wonderful news to be honest with you. I think so. Many of us were worried for her. She's a wonderful person. And i think certainly the fact that She's finally been released is a great thing. But they're still a lot of concern about her situation. And i think there's going to be a large discussion. And hopefully she'll be able to at some point talk about the really the suffering she endured. I mean the photo of her after release. It's joyous smile. But how does login even start to rebuild life after trauma like this. There are allegations of torture during your time in jail. So i think the rebuilding process for her is going to be significant. Certainly of course the the trauma being imprisoned I think there was abuse That may have been sexual nature as well torture from looking at the picture. She's clearly thinner. She has gray hair now and i met her five years ago with not a not a single gray hair on her head and i mean there's definitely a beaming smile in the photo. And that's because she's with her her parents but she still separated from her siblings of course many of which are outside the country and ex husband. You know there was a falling out of of a marriage because of the so. I think there's there's a lot of pain and suffering. I'm sure aside from her parents. You have a sense of what her support system in. Saudi is no i think She's certainly under a some sort of gag. Order not to speak to people and i suspect House arrested is a part of that. So she's not gonna have free movement in any way She has a wonderful family parents. Who are very supportive And have been really behind her from from day one of her activism. they're really quite impressive. People dutchwoman. Let's get to the bigger picture. We know that crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin salman sees himself as a reformer. What impact could james release have on the internal politics of saudi. Arabia haven't been really wants to take this as a win. A certainly i think if it wasn't for the biden administration coming in. I don't think we would have seen her release unfortunately so elections matter as they say but one of the things that i think her story will be told hush hush i think many people are discussing it online and certainly social media buzz there some very interesting hashtags and saudis twitter to talk about all these kinds of issues there still a lot of great discontent at the same time. Unfortunately hamad bin salman is seen as reformer in some way internally. He's opened up the country culturally. And and certainly you know. Put down the conservative or religious police which is a welcome news for young people. So you know. I think she she would be to be honest with you and more popular of saudi arabia than inside saudi arabia. But that's partly because of kind of nationalist propaganda that has permeated much of saudi society today..

"Drive and they wanted movies in the kingdom and popular music and they wanted to Open it up for more business as you say, privatized the national oil company. So initially he was received with open arms in the West. I knew he had a famously cold meeting with President Obama, but After that, this charm offensive. Did it convince people that here was a guy that who was open to becoming a more democratic society? I would call a democratic. I mean, he basically never spoke about political reform. He never sort of implied that Saudi citizens would have a say in how the country was ruled, or that there would be any kind of democracy. But he wanted there to be a social opening, and he wanted there to be economic reform. These were basically the two Main planks of his platform, and he really wanted the world to be involved in there. So the trip that you're talking about was in the spring of 2018. And this it was a remarkable trip. He went to five states plus the District of Columbia, He met three former presidents. He had a meeting with Trump in the Oval Office. He had coffee at Starbucks in Manhattan with Mike Bloomberg. He flew to Seattle saw Bill Gates went to Silicon Valley. Mark Zuckerberg, Google. Then he went to Hollywood and he met. You know, it was just sort of this remarkable, remarkable trip the number of people that he met and at that point Plenty of people were interested in him and and you know, we didn't see a lot of new deal sign, and we didn't see a lot of new businesses, saying Yes, we're going to put money into Saudi Arabia. But there was this curiosity and there was an enthusiasm about what he wanted to do. And a lot of people that really felt like, Wow, if this guy serious and he really does want to make these changes, maybe we want to be a part of that right. But then came Jamal Kashiwagi. Which seemed to put an end to that. There had been along the way a number of things that I think should have been some cause for concern. I mean, long before the murder of Jemaah Shoji, which was near the end of 2018. You had the Yemen War which you know the Saudis intervened in in 2015. You know, in 2017 you had this sort of bizarre detention and force resignation of sod Heidt, the prime minister of Lebanon, And then you had this bizarre event of these hundreds of business people in princes who were locked in the Ritz Carlton accused of corruption, and he basically tried to take their money away. So for those of us in the region who were paying attention, we sort of saw The reforms he was talking about, and we saw these things that were getting people in the West excited, but we also saw these things happening inside Saudi Arabia that Really sort of raised a lot of questions about his judgment and about just kind of his rash way of doing things. And then you know, just becomes clear The longer that we watch him that, okay, We're gonna have societal reform. We're going to have social opening. This is gonna happen at the same time is this authoritarians crackdown that is really gonna put all of the power in Saudi Arabia into his hands. And so is that what he saw in Joe Malka show Gaea a direct threat to his power. So Jamal Khashoggi, you know for those of us who had been in their world for a long time and studied Saudi Arabia. Jamal told you for the vast majority of his career was part of the Saudi establishment. This was a guy who traveled with kings traveled with princes. When I started covering Saudi Arabia in 2013 he was the guy that we would call whenever anything happened in Saudi Arabia because he could tell you what it meant. You would call him up and he'd say, Oh, well, I think the king is thinking this and I think that the government is worried about this and He was a huge asset. I think both for the Saudis and for people like me who were trying to figure out what was going there because he served its this kind of bridge between the two When NBS begins his rise. He actually considers Jamal originally a potential ally. He invites him to a reception and they have, you know, they sort of speak about these things. And I think he expects that Jamal is going to go off and write positively about all of this on But once kind of the authoritarians side of NBS rise kicks in. Jamal becomes very critical of it. He starts writing against it. The first falling out that they have is actually around President Trump When, when Donald Trump won the election, the Saudis were quite shocked by it, and NBS and the Royal Court basically decided we need to court this guy. It's very important for us to have A good relationship with him, and Jamal was very worried. And he wrote about it. He wrote a quite famous column at the time saying, You know, we don't need to be scared of Trump, but we need to prepare for him. He received a call from the royal court telling him you need to shut up. We're going to cut you off. You're not allowed on social media. You're not allowed to appear on TV. You're not allowed to publish articles. And so it was not long after that, that Jamal packed his bags left the kingdom and move to Washington, D C area. Where he soon started writing for the Washington Post. Right and then the story of his unspeakably brutal murder and dismemberment inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. You have strong opinions that this was in fact orchestrated by NBS. I I don't see any reason to think that he didn't know about it. You know, there was a CIA assessment that was basically leaked to the media. That I think is about right. I mean, they basically say there's no smoking gun. As far as I know nobody. No intelligence service has a recording or has definitive proof of NBS ordering his guys go get this guy for May. I don't think anybody has that. So in a court of law, it would be difficult to convict NBS of ordering the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. But over the course of his rise we saw An escalating campaign against dissidents that sort of started with the arrests at home. Then we started seeing different kinds of hacking attempts. There were a number of people who are literally kidnapped abroad and dragged back to Saudi Arabia to be put under sort of either house arrest or thrown in jail. So this is kind of accelerating in the background and And I just think it doesn't make a lot of sense of, you know, Saudi society. This is a very top down kind of place. Everybody looks to the person above them. It's not a place where people take a lot of personal initiative. NBS is definitely not known for delegating his powers. And so I think a lot of people, including myself, just find it hard to believe that such a complicated operation could have happened without at least a nod from him. I mean, we had 15 agents. Fly from Saudi Arabia to Istanbul on private jets that were owned by the government. They stayed in hotels. They worked in the consulate beforehand. They brought along a bone saw in order to you know which they ended up using to dismember him. They brought along a guy who looked like a mafia choked who could then go wander around Istanbul is a body double to try to confuse the surveillance cameras. I mean, this was not a last minute operation that they threw together. This was quite extensive and I think it's just quite hard to believe that somebody would have been ableto pull together. Those kinds of resource is for an operation like this without the Crown Prince at least having some idea what was going on. Right. Then he was worried himself Jamal Kashiwagi about going back to Saturday. But he wouldn't because he was afraid for his personal safety, right? Yeah. Once he moved to Washington, D. C are so he was living in Tysons Corner in Virginia. He basically realized that it would be dangerous for him to go back. I mean, he was still in touch with a number of Saudis. He still visited the Saudi Embassy in Washington. A number of times he even met with the ambassador, at least once, who happens to be a younger brother of NBS, and so he didn't believe that he was under threat that.

through brother does it and does it also have been used again I get up in this more I get up this morning to look at your yeah there's a few cups going up and down the freeway I don't know where they gone up but everything looks really pretty normal to me there's a horse track around here there's you know there's that for the the California Zephyr went by with seven cars we mention it before the show how yes it was it was a death is very important it's before we start the car yeah it's seven car economy that is that is typically good news was better I missed a digit being eight to nine car train generally speaking broadband access I'm I'm amazed were even in the seven our economy at this point seven car economy that's that's fine and it's a it's a pretty good and so I'm not sure what I don't know what this guy worries living in there throwing rocks at him I don't get it the shooting anyone of these is house I mean he's just sounds miserable meanwhile so they could be so Judy vice let them finish and then cuts it over to Scheels and shields plays the you know the jeep is little more politically savvy and he has the kind of bringing a Brooks and shows about big bite and fans that are kind of so he brings it back down to reality a bite is a good man mark are you what are you hearing someone it to moderate I agree with David has been a terrible week a horrible week virtually this is a presidential year it's a political decision American voters have a rather strange quirk which repeats itself and that is one of president disappoints them they go looking but frankly for what was missing and that president in there in his successor and I think it's fair to say as the only present history was never obtained positive job rating from his fellow citizens that Donald Trump is disappointed a lot of people and I think what they're looking for is is maturity I think they're looking for restraint I think they're looking for somebody who is uniter not a divider and that is I think that's that's what the job description that Joe Biden has to fill the in twenty twenty what he had to say on the news hour tonight was was stopped what was restrained was mature it was not stirring as David was looking for but I I I really think that the and the American people American voters are are looking for that maturity and that judgment in twenty twenty yes I I have a feeling that half the American viewers are still trying to figure out what the word mature means but okay two point seven million people watch as mature yeah he was the price happy about Joe's gaps three cops yeah it is a good guy against a curb is he is heading at the curb yeah that's yeah that's great so we go back in it goes back and forth it continues and then we got the clip three work we're we're Brooks is really pretty much and you are just about full here what about that it's a fair point we want maturity we don't want somebody who's going to go us hello hello ET cetera wrong it's maturity my maturity matured maturity date right maturity what about that it's a fair point we want maturity we don't want somebody is gonna go off crazy but you can hear on the other side and I do think what this pandemic has done has exposed as everyone keeps saying the structural remains in our society and I do think there is a hunger for change and and change of some significant nature I'm conservative I'm I'm not for resolution but I am for a comprehensive agenda so that when the George flowing to the world grow up in in the ward three of Houston where he been living for so many years and they're going to church every weekend they're serving in their communities spreading their faith and then what is this about George Floyd but he said to George because of the this is the bed the George Floyd bio which I have not received the bio but apparently they have let's listen again so that when the George floated to the world grow up in in the ward three of Houston where he been living for so many years and they're going to church every weekend they're serving in their communities spreading their faith and then they go off to Minneapolis they're not going off to a world of danger and they're not living in ward three Houston in a world of danger and that I just think you know changing the structure of those neighborhoods asked to be on the agenda here not just police training and I I'm sure let me leave this but I just think that it's going to be articulated yeah once you go read to your buddy Joe Biden's list all voices black agenda and come back to me and see if anything you said is on it now what's on there is I'm going to do a study to see if reparations would work police in Saudi society studies all which is what the Democrats always do they always you know that is the yeah so here's this glass is a bonus clip this is Brooks talking about the Twitter versus trump battle that's going on and how he needs you know this is you hear it hit Twitter instituted a new policy where they flag some of the president's tweets including one that had to do with Minneapolis are we sliding down a slippery slope here I mean do we it can only come back we are yes yes yes could be stopped you're going to be listening to a journalist and this is pretty common by the way this is like a little diatribe of mine a journalist who doesn't want to hear from the president that did this to journalists that don't wanna look at wikileaks it's not it's illegal journalists who don't like his you have a cache of information that was I don't know stolen but you're a journalist you actually have the rights to look through it and you you look through it you don't know not you don't want to do that the CIA has a special report is a room you'll read it no no I don't want to see anything I don't want to look at wikileaks I don't wanna I don't wanna hear from trump I don't wanted to hear what he has to say and I'm a journalist I'm in I'm in the business of news giving the public news but I don't want to know anything I'm a dot is you make any sense to you it doesn't it makes zero sense but they're so triggered and I just hope the people sit at home and here that and go wait a minute that doesn't sound like your job but listen again in full context Twitter instituted a new policy where they flag some of the president's tweets including one that had to do with Minneapolis are we sliding down a slippery slope here I mean do we it can we come back from a place where we are now where pretty much anything goes not just in social media but in public discourse sure somebody in the house and it follows a week you know I happen to be on morning Joe on Tuesday would make a presence he read out this letter from the with what do you say is on morning Joe this guy in the in the Alps and it's almost a week you know I happen to be on morning Joe on Tuesday when make a presence he read out this dignified letter from the window of the young woman who died in in Scarborough's office nineteen years ago and it was a man who is just trying to defend the dignity of his family against rumour mongering from the president and I thought that was gonna be the bottom of the week and that was only the beginning of the week and so what what Twitter did in to the tweet to market but not eliminated to me is the right thing I think people need to see what Donald Trump is doing I remain resolved that this country can be United arounds against racism and but marking it because we should have standards internet platform has the ability to regulate what's on the platform and without having a liability for it and that's what the law says and so I thought Twitter basically.

B. S. the rise to power of Mohammed bin Salman in Hubbard welcome to fresh AIR so let's talk about what Mohammed bin Salman has done with his power in Saudi Arabia they're just it's full of contradictions he has big ideas for economic reform and modernization be presented these to the Obama administration of various trips to Washington give us a sense of his vision for the country and its future and how he catches it well he's he's a young man who has big dreams and you know who really thinks he can he can do big things I mean I think that there are plenty of twenty year olds are people in their early thirties who think that they know better than the older generation and you know the difference is that his father is the king of a country and he can give them tremendous power and that he also has access to tremendous resources and so he's able to sort of you know hire consultants and hire people to try some of these things out and so we've seen this kind of whole raft of of hugely ambitious initiatives so you know this goes from his you know vision twenty thirty which was his big plan to sort of reform out both Saudi society and the Saudi economy and it's it's it's this huge ambitious plan that goes through you know trying to get more Saudis into the private sector trying to get more women Saudis into the workforce it goes all the way down to you in changing society so that Saudis have more access to entertainment it it goes into trying to encourage more Saudis to exercise on a regular basis I mean this is huge kind of sprawling document about all the things that he would like to see change in Saudi society and you know I think when it came out a lot of people kind of Pooh poohed it and kindness and all this is you know I don't think there's much in it that's objectionable I think what's remarkable is that it's so incredibly ambitious I mean we can certainly debate how likely it is that he's going to be able pull all of these things off but you know I remember thinking at the time well you know there's a lot of other leaders in the Arab world for not thinking this positively about the future of those countries you know I don't think that Bashar Assad in Syria for example is thinking about where his country is going to be and and in two thousand thirty and so you know I think it's in it's in in one way it's quite encouraging that he's thinking about these things and that he's actually making some effort to put them into practice let's go through some of these one at a time because I think they're interesting I mean these Klay made some major changes in social life in Saudi Arabia the list the economic projects he had some huge grandiose ideas for you know new cities rising in various places give us a sense of some of those ideas one of them was gonna be called NEO M. Neil yes Neil what was he talking about her so on the economic front he has a whole raft of initiatives some of which have actually begun some of which may it may never quite make it off the ground well you know one of the bigger the ones was the privatization of Aramco and and so you know this was something that he had announced quite that was quite a surprise to everybody including many of the executives inside of Aramco which is the state oil monopoly and it's really the economic engine of the entire country he basically mentioned in an interview with the economist magazine that he was going to privatize Aramco when it sent everybody sort of you know scrambling for information and people who work in oil markets what does this mean this has been you know the largest one large yeah I think it's the largest company in the world and all of a sudden he wants to privatize it what is this going to mean what's it going to mean for its relationship with the royal family and so they kept setting dates it was delayed numerous times and then finally late last year they did offer a limited IPO of Aramco but only on the domestic Saudi stock market so they got some money out of that and you know there's there's there's debates about sort of how wise that was and what the what the benefits of that decision where you know he's got very solicitous to try to get more women into the workplace and I think that those those were actually those actually predated Mohammed bin Salman Abbas King Abdullah the previous monarch who was the first to really try to get more Saudi women into the workplace including in retail as supermarket cashiers and things like that and MBS has really stepped up and I think that there's a lot of success going on there some of these other things are quite high are much much more ambitious the really pie in the sky project is this thing called me home and he announced this and in may two thousand seventeen he held at an investment conference in Riyadh and invited him business people from all over the world I mean people hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people showed up for this thing and the big reveal at the conference was this thing called me home and he said you know we have this unexploited piece of land in the northwestern corner of the country near the Red Sea and we're going to turn it into the sort of Mecca for technology development business into anything that you can think of they're gonna he said they were gonna spend five hundred billion dollars on it they were going to bring in business people to write the regulations so that to sort of create the perfect climate for innovation for business for everything they were gonna bring in technology companies he said that they they were gonna have so many robots working there that they might actually outnumber the human inhabitants they were gonna take advantage of the Saudi sun and have it all run on solar power I mean this is like complete pie in the sky stuff I mean Saudi Arabia really has no experience with solar power with robotics with a lot of the things that he's talking about but he just felt that if I create momentum behind this that people are going to come to it you know and then there were sort of once they got working on it they you know there were a bunch of other documents that came out the Wall Street journal did an amazing report where they got access to some of the internal documents which I cite in the book where he was talking about wouldn't it be great if we could have a beach with glow in the dark sand and they they just kind of couldn't deal scientists were sort of working on Jeez how we make glow in the dark sand haven't quite figured out a safe way to do it wouldn't it be cool if we had an artificial moon that sort of launched over near home at night Kerry by some drones I mean really like you know really crazy stuff and so I mean this is one of the tricks about understanding Mohammed bin Salman is all one hand you feel like you know you should at least appreciate appreciate the ambition this is a guy who really wants to change things in a country that I think many people felt was in dire need of change in two thousand fifteen but but sometimes you hear about this project can you sort of wonder like you know does he really think this is possible when and if it's even possible is that really a valuable way to spend all that money like glow in the dark sand really huh right so let's talk about some of the more practical things that he has achieved one of them was kind of curtailing the power of the conservative clergy this was quite real wasn't this was very real and and to be Frank I wasn't even sure about it at the time I never I remember I was not in Saudi Arabia when it happened it was done somewhat unceremoniously the government just basically made an announcement and said that the you know the religious police no longer have the power to arrest and that they were supposed to be sort of kind in their interactions with us all the citizens and I remember sort of seeing this and saying I don't know like is this for real this is not for real is this just sort of a PR thing and it's very difficult to tell and it sort of messaging a bunch of my Saudi friends it's like what do you think and they just kind of said we have no idea either was going to have to wait and see and looking back this was a major major stop I mean this was again if you have got together sort of a panel of Saudi experts in two thousand fourteen and said do you think that you know Mohammed bin Salman or some some of the king consort of snap his fingers and take the power to arrest away from the religious police do you think he's going to get away with it I bet that most of them would have said no there was this belief that these guys were untouchable there was this belief that they had the backing of very powerful conservative sectors of society would have risen up and who would have gone to see the king and and in the end it works and you know it's it's it's made it a very different place and I think that MBS realize that if you did want to make some of these changes specifically in terms of advances for women in terms of women driving in terms of women working in terms of entertainment and movie theaters and things like that he had to get these guys out of the way and he pulled it off no tell us about what Saudi Arabia was like when when you first went there in terms of the availability of you know music to listen to or movies to see the kinds of entertainment that people take for granted in the west and help him beat how Mohammed bin Salman change that it was really really a doll I mean I would go and I will check into a hotel and then I would sort of try to figure out okay what do I do now and you know I mean I took it it took a while to sort of develop contacts to get to know people to figure out who would actually talk to you and it also I would spend sort of as much time as I could working but then you know you can only work so long and then you know you're in a new country you want to go out and sort of see what the place looks like and there was just kind of nothing to do you know you've been a hotel and okay you can go sit in the lobby and drink coffee we can't order a beer because there's no beer okay maybe I'll go to a movie there's no movie theaters they shut down all the movie theaters in the decades ago so you can't do that live music maybe I can catch a show there's no live music because we don't really like maybe in the hotel lobby you would hear some fairly quiet instrumental music but definitely nothing live okay and I remember thinking can let me know I was staying at a hotel that happen to be right next to a mall is Evelyn at least like a walk in Riyadh the capital of Saudi Arabia's not particularly friendly city for pedestrians by circulating on the mall and take a walk around and I showed up in his guards at the door he said no no it's family time you as a single man you can't you can't come in well well okay fine so I sort of sat.

Saudi Arabia Arabia will open its doors to international tourists for the first time as part of a broader push to cut its economic dependence on oil Philip can tell us more yesterday the kingdom launches a visa regime for forty nine countries some will relax its strict dress codes for female visitors the tourism ministers described it as a historic moment for the country Jon's funky innocuous is chief economist at the Gulf research center in Viet I spoke to him by phone just a few minutes ago in Austin given that the Saudis government announces that it wants to being relaxed restrictions on tourism about once every six months is this time different well I believe so because now they have issued the first series of tourist visas and it seems to be quite real very historic for Saudi Arabia and they do need the tourists they need the money they need the inflow so they seem to be quite serious previous occasions when this has cropped up the media first question that comes out of the very religious segment of Saudi society is Jimmy Muslim terrorists because obviously Saudi Arabia is already a massive tourism destination during Ramadan would you mean non Muslim tourists the wider world so what is it in this case I think it's this case going beyond the Muslim tourist beyond the usual personable goes for the poker match not all the time is for the unusual tourist the tourists that wants to go to Saudi Arabia because of the sites the archaeology the sea so very much in competition with Egypt Jordan and other places in the met so what exactly is it the Saudi Arabia has to offer for those who don't immediately think oh yeah I'd love to go and see the cave of the G. in or something like that excellent question anything it has to do with the very much what Saudi Arabia offers which is the red sea coast very much pristine in terms of I'm touched territory for tourists. these sites the Saudi version of spectra and other destinations that mixes desert with the sea and the and the the various opportunities that people will have to visit Saudi that hasn't been visited for the last you know one hundred fifty years do you expect this means to be a success would you expect it to require a good deal of effort from the government to make it work Saudi Arabia at the moment doesn't have the best reputation around the world I think because they need to develop their reputation much more and they need to showcase that they can produce income from other sources and oil tourism is at the fall crumbles this new Saudi Arabia so they need to make it work and they need to bring in these people who are tourists and it continues to create jobs for Saudis so I think this is more real than just another branding of the country don't **** actors them yet thank you now less and with Libya whacked is one of the world's most century significant but under reported conflict somewhere it's just so difficult and dangerous to operate sent but a correspondent only caring it's just been to the frontline..

"I can finally see something I could see my country in what it's supposed to represent. And I'm seeing it through the eyes. My children. On NBS south. Look he came to the job with no bills to pay. He owes no one anything. He does nothing to any click. He's willing to rock the boat upset the status quo. Take the responsibility previous approach to reform was retailing slow. He's all about going wholesale wholesale. He's the first person to confront things head on in Saudi society and not sugar coat it. So that's that is my sense of things in the kingdom, admittedly from a slice of a certain part of the of the of the society. But it is really unlike anything I've seen in years of going to the Kingdom, I will just spend one or two more moments on something that Robert asked us to think about which is sort of trends in the region kind of prospects for twenty nineteen I will say not only from this trip. But from lots of other soundings I've done including last fall in the Gulf. There is a deepening sense of doubt and concern. Good evening Zayed's among our closest US partners about US commitment to the region. Partners are hedging or they're going full on past hedging to to take up policies and relationships that are clearly at odds with where we would like them to be and we have that in the Gulf within a rush for an unconditional raprochement with the Charlotte side, and we have the sense with Israel Israel, having a sense of having to go. Go it alone in terms of dealing with Iran in Syria. I will say as a former foreign policy practitioner, what is alarming to me, and what is also reflected in these conversations is a thinning out of key US, bilateral relationships in the region lack of ambassadors in twelve of eighteen of our embassies or twelve at eighteen relationships constant turnover back here in Washington at the cabinet level in the national security community positive high level engagement to way. And then finally what was remarked on during the trip. But also in my previous engagements who really speaks for the administration, and I think that really came to a head in December over the president's announcement of the troop withdrawal from Syria, and in the follow-up trip that national security adviser Bolton did to Israel and Turkey when you had just completely contradictory. Messaging coming out senior levels key developments in the face of all of this. What I see right now is. The prospect for the bilateral U S Saudi relationship really heading into the deep freeze for a variety of reasons. Congressional. I think Dana is going to address that. But also because I think structurally, there's some real problems with the way Washington is is carrying out the relationship, and that would be, you know, one of the things that has got to change if we're going to be able to pull the relationship in the direction east to go Yemen slow unraveling notwithstanding the UN process, unless the administration really gets serious and gets engaged there and Iraq, I think the troops issue is going to become toxic very fast inside Iraq, and it will have reverberations back here. And we could see a replay of two thousand eleven that cheery note, I will turn it over to you. Does Barbara Lee is a former US ambassador to the United Arab Emirates speaker is Dennis Ross. Former White House senior Mideast adviser live at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. Byron. I'm going to complemented lot of both in a positive sense. And then also in terms of a division of labor complement a lot of what Barbara was describing. I made two trips to Abu Dhabi in Dubai to speak at conferences little over six weeks ago. And then I went to Israel, and then I went from Israel to Saudi Arabian, and I came back to Israel, and I want to talk about broad impressions that that I had from those conversations in in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. I did see a number of of Saudis both official and non-official Saturdays. And then when I was in Saudi Arabia. I was air primarily seeing officials Saudis. I would start with one general observation the point that Barbara made about questioning where the US is somebody that comes through both in my trips to Abu Dhabi and Dubai in Saudi Arabia and Israel. The there's an I would even cast it a little bit differently. Questions. I got actually everywhere was really maybe Trump is not an exemption. Trump seems a lot like Obama to us in terms of not wanting to be in the region, not equating the two but saying that basically we wonder whether the US really wants to be in the Middle East, and whether what we're seeing now is a new normal. And I just put that out is a kind of reality that you get when you're when you're in the region in Saudi Arabia itself and with with Saudi today's I spoke to both prior to being there. And then when I got there what I found was kind of interesting mood, initially when I was first seeing Saudis in the Emirates, they were quite shaken by the effect of kashogi, the international reaction to it. There was a desire to sort of get out from under this. There was a feeling of great discomfort that one as one person said to me, we haven't felt this way since nine eleven they really wanted to get over it. Three weeks later when I went to Saudi Arabia. I found a move that was really different and it was much more. I would say reflective of a kind of anger. There was one of the things you I think you have to recognize is. Mohammed bin Salman has been seeking to replace ISM with a different form of legitimacy and the former legitimacy the new pillar of legitimacy is not just modernisation, but nationalism, and when you make nationalism the form of identity will win the outside world seems to be gang up on you. What a shock that. It produces a backlash. But that's exactly what I found when I was there a very strong sense of Saudi Arabia being singled out unfairly, and in a sense kind of coalescence kind of circling of the wagons. And that was especially true as it related to Mohammed bin Salman. I found a range of opinions about whether or not there should be some senior counselors him some checks and balances, but there was no range of opinion on his centrality to the changes taking place in Saudi Arabia. And if anybody thought that if you somehow could succeed in pushing him out, which they didn't think you could. But if you could the dark forces in Saudi Arabia would be back anyone who thought that. Somehow this move towards transformation of Saudi Arabia would continue if he wasn't there was engaging in luge in that this this was not possible. And if you want to see the transformation continue, then in fact, he has to be kind of the focal point of this. I've I found at the same time while there was this kind of anger at least among officialdom, I found this very sort of sober. Sense that okay. We got a problem with the United States. We know it's not going to go away right away. We realize. The we realized what's going on in the congress. We're not happy about it. But we just we have to persevere, and we will it'll take some time. But we will same time. I found a very strong impulse towards not walking away from reform doubling down on it continue to open up things within the society. I mean, the fact when I was there the Formula one car race was there and Ricky glasses was there literally too. Something like thirty or forty thousand people were there observing this. And this was presented to me with a lot of enthusiasm. And also as kind of marker is how things are changing within Saudi Arabia across the board. I found a determination just overall depressed ahead with the reform process. I was told when I raised questions about the the guardian rules. I was told there may not be anything that is as open as a decision on women driving. But there's simply our series of steps that are just being taken. As a matter of fact, so women at this point no longer have to have male approval to apply for a job to get a loan. The same thing doing any kind of banking the same thing that more and more of what will be very practical activities. Certainly commercial activities will be made without any reference to having any kind of approval from guardian from male relationships. The idea of pressing ahead in terms of overhauling the educational system was made to me very clearly and again with the idea of. Transforming the role of education. So that in fact, you create a knowledge-based society interestingly enough, there is a standing committee now that is reviewing the overhaul of the educational system. Kind from soup to nuts. And I was told that. Hollered bin Salman is on it. But also is Muhammed Alisa on it who is the secretary general of the world Muslim League. And if anyone who's paying attention last week to the article that he wrote on holocaust remembrance day to look at that article into think that it came from someone who's a Saudi is almost hard to imagine. I have to say Barbara my first trip to Saudi Arabia was March nineteen Ninety-one because I was with Baker when we went in immediately after the conclusion of the Gulf war Dennis Ross lie to have been going there since since that time, and it does feel like an entirely different country when you're there. And when you see someone like Mohammed, Lisa, right? The things that he does say the things that he does you feel like you're you're certainly dealing with kind of a different realm. She's been radio programming from Thursday. Doubled UCSB from washed. Now, I had a number of messages. I felt like I wanted to convey and rather than conveying would I did. I'll simply say that. I still think those messages I about to go through him. I think is what the US policy ought to be. So what are the things I would like to see this administration pushing right now. One. I think we need to we need to push transparency in the trials that are going to be held for those who've been accused Saudi Arabia of carrying out the kashogi murder. I think the more transparent that is it'll be at least part of a story that the Saudis can put out that they actually have a legal system that is dealing with us. A second thing. I would like the say like CD administration push administration ought to be saying to Mohammed bin Salman. Okay. The policy of trying to convince dissidents to come back to Saudi Arabia or disci- their criticism. When grievously wrong leaders went policies. They're responsible for go grievously, wrongly assume responsibility. And you water assume responsibility for this you say, you're you're changing the policies. Okay. You're changing the policies because you know, what went wrong. I would like to see since there is clearly an effort to continue the reform process there. It's clear that the crown prince I think needs to rebrand himself again as a reformer hard to do that so long as the wing women activists are in jail. I would like to see them released. I do think that there's been a and again the immigration. I think should be pushing that there has been a kind of confusion of the demonization of Saudi Arabia in the crown prince over kashogi with Yemen. So the story what's going on in Yemen is on the one hand completely legitimate to expose the kind of starvation and the the real human deprivation..
Who is Jamal Khashoggi?
"Arabia for a global audience, there. Gestion that, yes, he is a fist critic, yes. At the same time, there's a tremendous love his home country. And nights. Say that really translates to many of the activists and individuals who really for years before Mohammed bin Salman effectively took sort of the rain's even though his father's officially still the king. I would say that many of the people that unfortunately, the kingdom is turned against recently are the very the very few who were frankly proponents of reform. This is what is so frustrating asking for things like a relaxation of the guardianship laws more open and liberal Saudi society increased direct foreign investment, increased engagement with the outside world. I mean, all of this was part and parcel of much of what these young a lot of them are young, but you know, John is not surly. One of the young ones was certainly many of the reformers wanted to see these kinds of changes, and they would have been the greatest allies in advocates of bin. So men's reform efforts. But you know, certainly, I think the crackdown on these individuals just points out how little. Room there is even for supporters of haven't been some men's reforms to to sort of share the limelight. He relayed. I would say how the sun man wants to sort of be the only one to sort of give these rights not to have other say that they earned it, but in fact that the the monarchy
