Is America Heading for Civil War?

"Yeah, so the question is, are we heading towards a Civil War? Dennis has been prolific on this and prophetic because he said it earlier out loud. We're already living through. And it's just a matter of time before I think we really kind of it catches up to the what is going to happen is going to catch up with our living through, which is when I go to San Francisco, I have nothing in common with the people there. And it's mutual, by the way. Sarah Silverman who calls herself the comedian came out and she said, why are we living in the country with these unvaccinated people? I don't want to live in a country. Why don't they have their own country, and we have our own country. And exactly, and what I just heard from so many people, people just said, yeah, let's do it. And right. And so I just want you to kind of just absorb what has happened in the room here. You have a bunch of people who love this flag. That flag's not going to be around if those of you that just clapped, get what you want. I'm being serious. You just clapped for secession. And so that's a serious thing. That this room's enthusiastic about separating. We're already there, folks. This idea of like, oh, we're divided like you got one side that's demanding the severance and the other side that can't wait for it. And so and you're already seeing it through kind of the slow motion secession that's happening on Southwest Airlines or American Airlines of people that move to other states because they feel they don't represent them. And so who knows how this is going to end up? It could end up in physical confrontation. I think the regime is trying to provoke physical confrontation. I think they want us to get physical, which is why at every event on that and anyone asks me would literally someone ask me rather bluntly and suspiciously bluntly, when do we get the guns? I denounced him, and I said, that's exactly what the power grabbers want you to do. That will give them the Patriot Act two to be able to really seize control over you right now. It's that what they don't want you to do is keep on showing up to school board meetings and be patient and have self control and take back power through peaceful means. That's what they're really

Border Crisis Sparks Calls for Change in Immigration Policy

"June twenty first two thousand nineteen jv pritzker signs measure to help protect illegal immigrants in illinois governor jv pritzker in june of two dozen nineteen signed three bills designed to protect illegal immigrants in illinois that would prohibit law enforcement agencies from coordinating with federal immigration authorities. Pritzker sign the keeping illinois families together. Act which prohibits local law enforcement from coordinating with immigration customs enforcement. Now this was two years ago. Why am i mentioning this. Because you have blue states by the way this is one of thirty examples of blue states that have been signing laws that prohibit police officers and local sheriffs in da's from coordinating with federal officials. That's an act of secession. That's an act of nullification saying we don't want any part of this. Federal compact and we as republicans and conservatives sat idly by like. Oh yeah that's bad. Let's keep going to the courts they've been ignoring the courts and ignoring the laws for years. And so then when one point eight million illegals come into the country to change the country permanently by the way what do we do. We beg joe biden for help. So what are the democrats do when things start to trend in a direction. They don't like they take action. The democrats have the willingness to reshape. Destroy the country. Republicans are getting there now. Some people emailed us and they said well. Charlie couldn't joe biden nationalize the national guard. It is very rare to do so usually only done with the consent of the governor and prayer pet presidents have rarely federalized a state or territory guard without the consent of the governor in the wake of hurricane katrina president. George w bush declined to take control of the louisiana's national guard due to the objection of governor kathleen blanco. But this is such an easy thing. First of all joe biden can't nationalize state troopers. Secondly he can't nationalize texas rangers. Thirdly the governor of texas would say i'm sorry what did you design a piece of paper. There's still our national guard. They're not gonna listen to you federalized nationalize i mean federalize. And so what should have been done. And what's still can be done. Is every single. Texas ranger national guard member state trooper that can be allocated should be deployed to the southern border with handcuffs and arrest authority and charter flights. Ready to send people back where they came from

"So there answer is we must secede from the union like matt wall said. I can't live in a country where they were they mask. Two year olds and chemically castrate. Twelve year olds. Which is no no and i can't live in a country where they believe in women's right to abortion. I mean my god and when you boil it down it really comes down to abortion because the other ones are just crap excuses anyway and they're trying to lay the groundwork here in their hoping hoping that people like tucker on fox news take the nibble and start to promote this logic. Which they there's a very good chance that you'll start to hear tucker carlson talking about succession from the united states. And as i always think about this folks. I think that what unites us is stronger than really what divides us at the end of the day. Right i mean we've made it two hundred and forty five years as a successful union and they wanna throw it all away. Throw it all away because they lost the election because we believe in mass in vaccinations and we believe in women's rights and for this they want to throw two hundred and forty five years of a perfect union away their political snowflakes folks. They're dangerous political snowflakes. The way i look at it here is it's not time to succeed. It's time to be an american and have an honest debate like we've always had about these. Things not spread rumors of election fraud. That don't exist. These are the types of lies that destroyed democracy. And i think avenue some said it correctly when he said you know what democracy is like a football that you throw around. It's like it's like a ming dynasty vase. You know you drop it it shatters. It's it's toast. It's not like a football so folks. I think it's really time to realize the common sense here in front of us that vaccines work masks. Help and it's time to stop fighting a vaccine that you can see is not only working in the united states but it's working globally. I mean hundreds of millions of people. It's time to respect. Rovers has weighed not destroy it. We can have an honest debate but not lies that race to the logic. That secession is our only option. It's like the old saying goes and we've all heard this before folksy united we stand divided. We fall when it comes to doing. What's right what makes sense protecting voters rights using a vaccine. That actually works all these things. Make sense whether you're a democrat or republican. And i really believe most americans get this in the thing that's worrying. Is that the conservative fringe right now that these arguments are trying to lay for succession will work their way up the media food chain into fox news and then you'll hear donald trump talking about it and now we've got something else that we've got to fight in addition to all the other. Bs things that don't make sense..

"Reconstruction since blacks left the american south and came to north in the eighteen seventies eighteen eighty and eighteen nineties whether it be people going from california to texas from new york to florida from illinois to florida this movement from one state to the other which i know a lot of you have done yourselves is a form. That's playing into this broader idea this movement of separation. Now this word secession. Where does it come from. Well obviously comes from secede or it comes from. I no longer want to have an official attachment now. Let me reemphasize this point. Some libertarians disagree with this tom. Woods who i think is very smart. He had a big impact on how i view a lot of things. He's very libertarian. He says that there's a constitutional right of secession. Respectfully tom woods there is not a constitutional right of secession. The founding fathers did not articulate that the founding fathers did not enumerate that in the greatest political document ever. I think this is part of the strategy. Though i think part of the strategy of what we are seeing culturally and politically is they want to encourage these movements especially from foreign adversaries like the chinese communist party. They want to see america no longer be the united states of america but instead twelve fifteen seventeen twenty twenty-five countries and we're this trend is heading right. Now that's where we're going. We are heading towards some would call it a national divorce and the question divorces well who gets to keep the kids who gets to see them win. Because what's gonna happen in tennessee and kentucky might form their own coalition estates that dakotas might country my form their own. And if you think i'm being a little bit hyperbolic were alarmist. I'm only beginning the argument of telling you what we are living through right now which is a generally negative thing. And then we're going to talk about solutions and a remedy of how we can pivot away from this at its current trajectory. We are flirting with self separating and dicing up the greatest nation and republic ever to exist. Hey guys you guys have heard me talk with my friend. Kelly shackelford before kelly shackelford from first liberty is a good person. Look we've talked about court packing. It's the tool of left wing. Authoritarians who gosheh vez pack venezuela's supreme court with socialist cronies and paved the way for his radical regime. But now joe biden and american socialists radicals when a pack our supreme court with four new liberal justices court. Packing isn't some policy idea to improve our courts. It's a coup a coup to take away your constitutional freedoms and turned america into a socialist country..

"secession" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show

"I saw segment last evening. On sean hannity's program with a guy who is advocating for the counties of eastern oregon to secede from oregon and become part of idaho with him was a friend of mine. Bill white who was advocating that buckhead county which is a not buckhead county but buck had the city or the region of atlanta divest itself from the city of atlanta. The story was written up in the new york about idaho. Back on may. Twenty second political divisions in oregon can be to a great degree measured by a river. The day shoots with with with with wins. Snaky circuitous way through the states. Mid section mike mccarter says quote. Those of us in rural oregon are written off the greater idaho movement that spurred the special election vote on tuesday has been simmering for years. But it's picked up steam as the new york times says amid growing political polarization that accompany the november presidential election voters in two other counties. Union in jefferson voted last fall to address. This question and these counties have voted that they want to leave organ and be part of idaho. We are seeing something that is happening in in front of our very eyes and most people are not mentioning I'm about to diagnose this. But i'm not gonna say whether or not this is a good thing or a bad thing. This is simply and merely an observation. But it's very important as we ask ourselves. What kind of nation do we want to be. And are we going to be a nation much longer. we are living through. Slow motion secession. Then it's a hard thing to say but in more ways than one. We are already seeing this question that i get asked all the time when i travel the country to churches to tea party groups to republican dinners. People say charlie. Regan have secession anytime soon. And i answer the question. The best i can because for good reason that word secession brings back memories of the american civil war abraham lincoln argued that succession was not a constitutionally granted. Right he called the south's declaration against north. He said it was an insurrection. He did not say. It was a secession. Abraham lincoln wrote extensively and he said this in his most famous speech outside of the gettysburg address. The cooper union speech where he said the only way we are going to appease the south is if we no longer support the abolition of slavery. So for good reason. This term secession kind of stops people in their tracks. They don't like talking about it. And i don't either. I don't think this is a healthy thing. I think this is a negative thing. But instead i'm gonna tell you what's happening. I'm always going to tell you the truth. 'cause this is this is not like anything we've seen in recent memory people are already in real time divesting themselves from the attachment of the broader nation. We are heading for a collision course. Some would call it a national car crash. We are building if you keep even call it that unfought lines. The fracturing is real. The cracks are emerging and we are living through a separation thankfully right now it is mostly peaceful in fact. It's entirely peaceful. We have people that are trying to use the constitutional process to either leave the state that they're in or enter a new state. So let me give you three examples. That were already living through this. Slow motion secession. Not we're already dividing ourselves into many countries that were already asking ourselves the question. What i have in common with that guy from san francisco. I don't like him. he doesn't like me. Are we even in the same country now again. I want to reemphasize this. This is a very provocative topic. This is something that americans don't like talking about. I am not saying this is a positive thing fact. Generally saying this is a negative thing. But i'm saying it's happening and not even saying that it's happening for people that want to sow division. I think it's happening that i think it's happening. Because people wanna preserve something that they can recognize or live in a place where their values and their ideas are not constantly under attack. As i mentioned in idaho. We are seeing this happen. Almost all of eastern idaho wants to become part. All of eastern oregon wants to become part of idaho mccarter says most of us in rural oregon realized that whatever portland the willamette valley area once. They get do. We have freedom to vote and what we ought to govern us. That's the question tim. Die a professor of economics university of oregon. Go ducks he says. These are really small places and tough places to make a living if you look at the map of eastern. Been there many times. It's a completely different culture than what happens in portland or eugene or in salem or in corvallis my father my uncle. My aunt all went to the university of oregon. So i understand oregon rather well. We're also very big ducts fans and our family. But this fracturing that you're seeing in oregon is just one of many examples. As i mentioned this is happening in buckhead the beverly hills of atlanta. They say we do not want to be part of atlanta anymore. We want govern ourselves. This also happened in virginia. in virginia. There are five counties that have petitioned want to leave virginia and become part of west virginia. You might not have heard that story and governor jim. Justice from west. Virginia will happily accept them for decades. There have been rumblings of texas. That want to secede. But what if. I told you that the slow motion secession is happening in a way that you might not realize did you know. We're living through the greatest migration of states.

"The people in the North. In parts are saying, Why don't we just get out of the city of Atlanta and become our own incorporated city that we can have our own police force and we can hire people who are going to enforce the law and let them know that we back then? You know, Michael, this makes me think of the it's really used in for religious institutions. More We talk about the term but the term subsidiarity, which is really the best level of administration, the most effective level of administration is going to be local. You know, In other words, you're H o A is going to be more receptive to what you need, because it's probably only what 102 100 homes and Eurasia way vote means a whole lot. It's one of 200 then the president to you, because he really doesn't care. I mean, you know, hundreds of millions of people vote for the president, of course of election cycles. Your vote. You know it matters, but you know, mathematically. It obviously doesn't matter as much. And I think this is one of those ideas that listen. If New York State is so big, it's not going to listen to him Onondaga County or whatever it may be. You know that Maybe these counties could join us, And I think having come from Maryland having lived there for a long time, Western Maryland Michael is always like my gosh. Why can't Can we get out of here? Can we go to West? Virginia? Yeah, Western Western, You know, I I know very little about the area, but I've been through it a couple of times. And once you get to Frederick and beyond the whole character of the state is utterly utterly different than what you see in Baltimore or around the chest speak. It's just it has way more in common with West Virginia or rural Pennsylvania, then And or, you know, or even parts of Virginia that don't have anything anymore, really in common with Northern Virginia, and yet because of the way because there's the dominance of urban and suburban areas in terms of population, you can vote to your heart's content in Western Maryland, and it doesn't matter. You're just going to lose every time the same way somebody in upstate New York will always get out. Voted by the city or somebody in you know, the rural Virginia or Western Virginia is always going to get out. Voted by Northern Virginia, those suburban counties right around Washington, D. C.

We started embarking on a new journey toward larger on it so we had their early over. I think we have about one point. Five million developers now in dallas so signed up but we saw that big move award. Large large companies like verizon and likes that wanted to have a lot more flexibility and being able to handle more complex. Use cases with their varietal agents Migrated toward what we just launch in. General is but at the same time we expanded toward agent assists and insights we added to the portfolio so the history starts at a piano. The i four years ago. But i think they're somewhat of a split about two years ago to address the large enterprise cases those use cases and so for those who you mentioned. It's this this dialogue floor the cx was created. There is agent assist olympics and insights. Those are the those are the the full men compo- insects out yet but inside his common. That's right isn't it. Yeah so. It's a early preview right now. It's coming on in in In preview the states kind of bit is a new term. Like we don't have alpha beta anymore. We have previews and j preview previews coming out. I think in the next month and now it takes care is incites is no analysis product per se. It is it is inside. So floyd assists on sites had the three main main products. And i'm accents. Okay then so. Donald flows has been used a lot for goodness actions as well as chump dot says wella's contact center etc for those up in the day a more than likely have experienced dialogue floor in some shape or form. So what is it. The drove the need for dialogue floor. Cx whetted cx come from. Sussex is more graphical. It's it's slightly different to. Es what's the history. Yeah that's actually very important. So essentially asks is basically dial for the daleks with everybody knows that the prior version she will that was meant to build simpler interactions. So one or two turns. Maybe three turns if you if you really need to go a little deeper but some people have called it like slot failing type of bots little bit of that no s something getting tencent and entities and do something where the work or cloud function fairly simple. But when you talk about larger apprise they need to handle much more complex use cases longer. You know five. Ten twelve fifteen turns in conversation or you know things that lasts for two or three minutes on the voice side and being able to handle that without floor essential was very difficult. Because linking intense between them. The nfc between intense was a little difficult to do and the visual builder was a big improvement where you can see a complete flow manage the transition in dragon drop. Ui all without code was really important to a lot of customers but it really doesn't stop there Dallas came from a need for better predictability in spending for example so the pricing model is different. Secession based rather than a turn or fifteen second incriminate. It has a skill ability Capabilities that are much higher so delicacy. Excellent handled forty thousand intent in a single implementation issue. Compare that doug. Flu central two thousand ten. You can have mega agent on it. Which allows you to go to twenty but cx with forty thousand and ten and we have customers that are in the many many thousands fifteen seventeen thousand intents so it does happen that you need this kind of skill. It also has a lot more features toward ivr's when you used alpha essentials. It's unlikely you're going to replace your vr and hence your vr with. It's more about knowing if you think about assistant. Its interaction with smart device.

"If they you'd have to rename the eu because it isn't europe it is look. I'm all for anything that allows me. I'm i'm ready for the united states to to to join the schengen zone so that there'd be free movement of people from europe to the north america and frankly all over. I'd i think the idea that there's officious government bureaucrat. Standing at the border Preventing people from moving one. One to another is pretty out. It's pretty obvious. We're not talking about the land of the free anywhere. He actually believes this. He says given that blue states have higher growth per capita and disproportionately drive the economic dynamism of the current economy from technology to medicine to creative industries. He says a blue state nation would likely attract parts of the red state nation from which it had seceded especially those parts that had formerly been swing states. That may very well be true. I don't know but the i will say that. Lots of people moving from new york to florida. And which is marginally red state and it's certainly freer the new york california too. Yeah i was gonna say. The way to. Florida seems to be popular. At least amongst my people one scenario would be thus would thus be negotiated reconstitution of the united states along more democratic constitutional line. As though people like the the thing that i dislike about this whole term democracy like the idea that the hobo on the side of the street should have the same You know say as Say a brain surgeon. This is what democracy tells us this is absolute lunacy. There obviously people who have no business voting. I don't want any of those people that have say over my life. I don't care who you are. He says all that said secession would be the second best solution but the point is to be clear that it's better than the constitutional status quo antebellum abolitionist garrison argued for northern secession from the federal slave power in all seriousness but their campaigns were also designed to make ending slavery. A key part of national politics. So he's making the argument that you've made mark that that Purporting the idea of secession and getting serious about it might make the federal government pays your direction or pay attention. He similarly a modern campaign would use local referenda on succession to spotlight the just claims. The blue states for equal political representation. Arguing for secession but with the preferred first choice of being national political reform. So he's saying this is his favorite solution if his big problem is that the republicans get their president too often. I don't think he's looked at this as deeply and his he's objecting to the senate What he considers to be disproportional representation. It wasn't intended to be proportional and brought these kids. That's what this is. Yeah that's what it is and you know what if this is encouraging people to to embrace the session. I think it's fantastic. And he goes on rambling about the senate and the electoral college The last part is just basically him talking about what he wants to see. Change at the national level but ultimately he is making a case for session wraps up by saying we face a mounting constitutional crisis. One that in turn amplifies the crisis of voter suppression racial and economic equality and climate change with the majority that is majority. Will that has repeatedly thwarted by minority rule in every aspect of policy ultimately building a serious blue state threat to secede. It's the only way to end this crisis and create a nation based on equal representation. For all well. I hope that More people on the left. Start looking seriously at secession. Especially those who can see biden clearly for what he is. You know that this is not the left and they don't now they'll see him soon. Yeah this is not the leftist. You thought you were electing. He's just another arbitrary power mad sicko another half the different face. Yeah so there's your story there let's get into some good news here capping kick ass. You've got a really interesting story about this. Nfl guy he He got a deal where he's the first. Nfl player actually get half of his salary in bitcoin. Right we've talked about this guy before. Russell kun currently plays for the nfl team. The carolina panthers. He had lobbied his former team. The seattle seahawks as well as the panthers when he switched teams for receiving all of his pay in bitcoin. He wanted to be paid in bitcoin and they couldn't really work that out with the league. So he worked it out with his agent and somehow they made it so that half of his salary gets paid to him now in bitcoin. I don't know if they're using a service like a like a bit wage or something like that. Or you know you just deposit into this routing number and it becomes clear while it somehow but he has managed to do that and when did that go into effect you do you know when that was was at twenty twenty one at the end of december of twenty twenty okay. According to this article from bitcoin dot com so the price of bitcoin gone up quite a bit in just the first year. it says russell okuno is well-known. The most well paid shortly. Have you read this article. Know he just made a smart gas j. Yeah but he is well known at least in the nfl circles for his stance towards bitcoin and well before he was paid in bitcoin he relentlessly asked to receive a salary in crypto at the end of december. Twenty twenty shocked the world when he announced he would indeed be getting half of his thirteen million dollar salary paid in. Btc is that per year presumably presume a salaries generally per year. I presume as well as it paid in one lump. I never been player. It's certainly never received hypoc thirteen million a year they divided into. I believe it's weekly payments or might be biweekly. I'm not sure But he's going to be getting in. Btc or is getting hafid btc. Nice now is. Bitcoin has continued to climb higher value week after week since then. A number of people have noted that has made a lot of money so far choosing to be paid in. Btc for example when btc hit forty. Four thousand the half of his contract that is paid. Btc climbed to ten point. Five nine million at fifty six k his half turned into more than his entire quoted salary where he is getting it all at once because that would suggest he's getting you know certain contracted to pay a certain amount of bitcoin hanging in which case they i hope they really hope they bought all that ahead of time. Oh kuhn has entered the top five position however the nfl's recently decided to cap the league salaries at one hundred and eighty million. That's a per team and contracts can change twenty twenty one because of that so he restructures might not be getting a full thirteen million per year. Whatever it is but many proponents think of him. Currently as the highest paid player in the nfl and not just ahead of the highest paid offensive tackles. That's the position he plays. But among all the nfl players quote you are the highest paid player in the nfl unquote and individual said to russell. Kun recently on twitter. Simply by taking your salary in a different unit value. Amazing it will not be long before your peers catch on. He said they'll figure that part out. So you know you do the math here you know. He's getting paid arguably more than the highest superstar. Take like tom brady. Era mahomes or a rogers or something like that at least for the weeks. It's so ccording to various different sports websites. Here it says they do get a weekly pay from their base salary aside from their signing bonus and apparently during the regular season so through the regular season. they're getting weekly pay now. i don't know what the signing bonuses for him but it may be that he is you know signing bonuses. I believe are paid in a lump sum so and that's usually a free agent. Contracts are generally. They want the big lump sum up front. And then you know some salary over the course of x. amount of years right. It would be a salary if the lump sum if there if there in such thing as a signing.

"S context so Sixty minutes is cbs's newsmagazine program. Right and of course the the job of all the news magazine programs is to Promote whatever the left wants right the especially biden administration and so But that doesn't mean that everything that they report isn't right or everything. The report isn't true right and so sixty minutes is doing a hit piece on assad to prop up what the biden administration wants to do. But that doesn't mean these aren't sure stories. I want you to listen real quick to the regime in syria. What's it about. And why should we care. We've got better evidence against assad and his clique. then we had against milosevic in yugoslavia. We had in any of the war crimes tribunals in which i've involved in some extent even better than we had against the nazis nurenberg because the nazis didn't actually take individual pictures of each of their victims with denting information on. You'd love to go to court with this would be a great trial against the assad himself in trouble is assad has nearly won the war the us and others have imposed sanctions but most criminals will be safe in syria. The un tried to refer syria to the international criminal court. But that was vetoed by russia and china if assad gets away with impunity. What has the world lost. If the word is that you can commit those crimes and the you can get away with it and this is the way. You supress a popular uprising. Then others will do the same thing. The future will be much more dangerous than the than the past and a lot of what we built will be destroyed. And ron in the chat. Make a great point here. You know the the ideas you know. We wanted saddam taken out. Who replaces him. You know you're into the malls and around who replaces him and you know. It's not just a matter of ending the one bad guy. It's sometimes figuring out what would happen in the vacuum. And i again. I don't pretend that. I know whether this is right or wrong. I'm just giving you some context around it and Bosscher assad all of everything else. Set aside bashar. Al assad is a real live bad guy. This is an interview with photographer.

"The state of play on game. Stop the biggest of the big. Red it hype. Stocks slid more than thirty percent in. Monday's trade is a further fall to come game. Stop has had a wild ride recently. After exuberant retail traders sparked a short squeeze in the stock. That meant that the professional traders who had against the mall retailer were forced to buy it to limit their losses pushing the price even higher. At this point you've been watching this guy's got a one thirty eight dead so down thirty percent yesterday to to to to twenty five and now down from two twenty five forgot it at one forty i gotta i gotta one thirty eight bed right now. So thirty percent yesterday. Thirty seven percent today. I don't know what to say about that other than we said all along when when the shorts get covered. What's it worth. What's it worth when the shorts get covered. It did anyone. Ask that question Well we did. Obviously but yeah. I don't know what the the company is. I don't know what the company is actually worth. And i love the i love when people say you know maybe the guys got some some great plans who knows. Maybe maybe they do. Maybe there's some online business model that works for brick and mortar right. I mean that's that that that i guess you could. You could somehow justify you know a two thousand percent run up. But i know what do you think is this. Just go back up to five hundred at this point or is the fever. Broken at this point look i. I wouldn't proclaim to know what's going to happen with different investors who try to get in and run with this. We knew from the beginning that you may double a stock and that looks outrageous enough but when you're trading at twenty times what you were a couple of weeks ago there's something besides fundamentals that are at play there so it'd be almost impossible to say because it hasn't been a fundamental Move that's been driving this for quite a while. Hollywood's weird isn't it. There's a couple of movie versions in the works already. they have. I hear it when they make a movie. They made three different endings. They have no idea. Well what the ending of this is going to be on on the ben. Mezrak is doing one of the social network before this one's the antisocial network eilly anti-secession well i'd like to.

"So i got the right to zero speech but when i did the one i said My conclusion was that if this place congress Speaking if this place would just play more baseball. We'd all be a lot better off and stay away from this place. Don't come in here. Legislating and i really meant in many ways because you know the baseball game was special because it it brought out The the youthfulness outta out of people who like to play baseball and playing game on a baseball diamond. That wouldn't be the place to negotiate or go over to one of the players on on the bench and start talking about policy. That was taboo. I never saw that happen. Became real political though. This go around when ran was there on a diamond and the Wild man comes in and start shooting guns and That was that was much worse but basically the baseball game was good and and and it sort of build a an agreement between us. If i walked back to the capital which i have not done likely to do it or if i bumped into any of the members if i knew that if they played on a baseball team i probably remember it and they would prior remember that i played in the basement. It did a lot of break the ice and it was so different than the attitude that go along especially especially today so The the truth is the country would be better off if they played More baseball i liked it because i was a frustrated baseball player We didn't have a baseball team in high school. I was a long time before little the so. I always thought it was pretty neat. If you could be on a team that had uniformed i mean we had to pick up teams and get on our bikes and go find other teams and and we made our our our own way. I don't think hurt us one bit so if if that's the case it was it was amazing. People people really really enjoyed. And i did enjoy it but i got to put a uniform on and people are still still.

"Don't wanna think about salvaging it and saving even even when we talk about monetary policy. People say you want to just go back to the gold standard and they would sorta ridiculed the idea of going back to the gold standard. And i my ass is usually been not go back to the gold standard. It was less than perfect. It wasn't a free market gold standard and the government became the counterfeiters is so you know just going back. doesn't help. I think it's to me. I look at it for the spirit of liberty that we need to cultivate. And then seceding means that you have to be able to leave and we had those principles. Wendy renew that The principle of learning how to live in a country as that is so abusive to our rights. Is something has being done. All the time and more and more people are thinking about that. But that's not true. True secession and it's not really Trying to salvage the current system. But i'm sure the individual was thinking about. How do you salvage the good parts. You know the strict limitation on the federal government over the states. And that would be a form of salvage salvaging you know the more important and and more reasonable things in the constitution but it looks like those people who had wanted it because they did you know hammel. Tony actually believed in a much stronger. Central government than jefferson did so the sees of of this problem was planning very very early. So that's why. I think we have to concentrate on making sure. The principle of a free society is well developed. And then once people say yeah. That's the kind of society. I wanna live in. Then you say well then. What are we gonna do. What kind of a government would should we have. Well we we shouldn't have a government that Is in charge of everything that we do that. They can do what they've done. This past year have locked house With no legal basis to it no constitutional basis to it i mean. That's that's what has to has to stop so but you can't have that until you get a people arouse the point is i'm sick of the authoritarianism. Yes it was incremental or was slow it was insidious is developed and that's what the founders worried about and i would i would say that we really had a major change in this country in the Since the progressive era on the last century and You know if you look at monetary policy spending keynesian economics foreign policy. I mean there. There's not much of the republic left So we might want to make sure that we can get more people to understand. You know the the whole the whole issue of living in republic and then the government's then would reflect this but right now the government's do not and there's a lot of hindrances but we need the discussion. So i like these kind of questions because it makes people think about where the real problems are and quite frankly even if you had a pretty good law protecting the right of secession That would be good and it would be defined but but at the at the same time if the people weren't forward if if you still has sixty sixty percent of the people saying don't do that how am i going to get my social security. How am i going to get my Mice check when you have a hurricane and and all these problems with or the viruses. Eating us up we have to..

There were several hundred came in. It's a shame we can't go over all of them because of the time but we tried to pick the best ones and we'll get started with the first one which comes from snack toshi and he s is the united states Too far gone to salvage is it. Time for secession. Well i think of Cessation there's always time for secession. Because not many governments are unique in that their design For the type of limitation that. I'd like you know. Having a very very minimalist government that's ho- sole purpose is trying to protect the independence of the individuals. The individual and the small groups can voluntarily take care. There's always time secession. Can have philosophic secession. Different countries have different views on on how to succeed and You know you could have just legalizing secession from the school districts or something like that and everybody just leave or A way having a choice on medical care or a or a mandate like obamacare.

"You need over here any time that's gonna say just so we're clear. That's how far it's come that New Jersey has now got less aggressive restrictions than Pennsylvania. This is not where you wanna be Pennsylvanians. People on my side of the river constantly threatening to move to Bucks County if they don't have the stomach or the ability to move as far away as you know, South Carolina, Florida. That's kind of our skate fantasy to move on over there. Um, but now I don't know. Maybe it's gonna reverse. This keeps up. Maybe people be moving over to Mama's an ocean. I'd be happy to have him, but it's It's awful sad for a great state. It's pretty clear to me this is just naked politics. I really think it's nothing more than putting the hurt on. You know, let's turn it up extra high because they want that federal money and I suspect they I think they're banking on the federal government's saying, All right, All right. All right. Quit torturing them will give you the check. That's what I think they're counting on is my bed. I don't know if you agree. Oh, absolutely. And it saved Jersey in the in the Garden state contacts you've been writing around at this for a long time. New Jersey's pension systems, one of the worst, if not the worst in the nation. We Before the pandemic on Lee had about a third of the money on handed that we needed to fund our public pension system. And again, That's before the bottom fell out with all these coded 19 lockdown restrictions, so think about that for a moment. These governors in these purportedly blue states they rely on public sector unions support nowhere more true than New Jersey. So Murphy and the teachers union are attached at the hip. That's why we can't get all of our schools open. In person instruction over here, because that's not what the N J D a wants. So if you're governor like Phil Murphy heading into reelection next year, you need that money from the federal government. So you don't have to cut any social programs that your voters like and depend on or just once. And you certainly can't be laying off public sector union employees because they're not going to show up for you at the polls, so it's even worse. And just the usual socialist nonsense. It's actually part of get out the vote effort for these Democratic governors. They need Joe Biden and Congress to give him money. So that they don't have to lay off their core supporters that if you ever needed a reason to go volunteer in Georgia or send those Republican campaign to check there it is Matt Rooney's It saved jersey dot com. I don't know how Uncomfortable. This word. Secession is for you. But there is talk of it this week in certain corners. I know guys like Limbaugh even brought it up on his show. And so I only bring it up because I read your headline today at Save Jersey, New Jersey joins 19 other states. Opposing Texas is Supreme Court lawsuit So you have about an even split of states that are suing Four states and then an even split of states that are suing those other states for so I mean, you've basically got a legal civil war brewing headed for the Supreme Court. Those that say These states cannot just willy nilly change the way they do their elections That's in violation of the Constitution. And then apparently, states like New Jersey and 19. Others who say Oh yes, they can, and we stand with them. One wonders how long If this doesn't simmer down, one wonders how long this can sustain itself in this country. These states this ideologically opposed run by these ideologically divergent people. Well, yeah, it's a totally fair question to ask. And, of course. That's all rush did ask. That's all leaders in the conservative movement like Chris Diggle are are wondering aloud and then the video on the other side of the aisle takes to an extreme runs with it says that You know, world home knitting Confederate flag from getting ready to go to engage in makeup, arms action ourselves, Right? Yeah. Dixie Haram? No, I mean, obviously, that's not. That's not what anyone saying. I mean, you know the Democrats only, you know, we're talking about the leadership here. They only want this country when they win the election every other time they spend Full four years degrading it. So God, I mean, we We certainly don't want to see this country fall apart. But you can't deny that there is some writing on the wall that we're in trouble. And there's what you just mentioned Chris. The fact that It seems as if we're increasingly divided politically, and we're at each other's throats, and now we can't even agree on what constitutes a fair election. And there's also just cultural problems. I was talking about this with a friend the other day, even in 18 60 if you took a farmer down in the cell And a factory worker and New York City. A new immigrant from Let's Say Ireland. Yeah, they had a lot of differences, but culturally, they believed in God they believed in the nuclear family. They had a lot more, maybe in common with their day to day lives, respected law enforcement, the rule of law. Exactly whereas today I mean, what does hipster in the village have in common with a farmer in Iowa? Absolutely nothing. They might as well live on different planets. Wow, let alone different countries. So yeah, that's that's a challenge that we can escape. And it's something we're gonna have to figure out how to bridge. Otherwise we are. We're gonna be in deep trouble. And the electoral college has to be a part of the solution. The left want to get rid of the electoral college? Well, at that point, you silence the voices of so many people who feel disconnected. Rightly so, from their fellow countrymen. You get rid of that. Um, you know, we are going to be in person hurt. You just always just got to keep working to try toe. Avoid that with every possible breast that we have, because this this country still the best. Last hope for the planet Earth. Um and we're not going to be able to defeat China if we're not standing together, But we can't ignore these problems, but you're not gonna go away. I mean, I'm not. I don't When I say this, I don't mean to sound dramatic and I don't mean Tonto. You know, e think Sometimes when I say these things, it sounds self, a grand izing yourself important or something. So I want to be clear. I'm only throwing it out. There is a point of conversation. Nothing more. But it has been a real conversation over the last year. I'm committed to staying here. I love it here. I've raised my family here. You know, I'm not going anywhere, signed a long term deal to stay here. So I'm you know, I just want to be clear from the outset. I'm not saying this is some sort of empty rhetorical threat or than anyone would even care if I left that said, I have had legitimate conversations about. Well, if our kids can't go to school here And my friends. Businesses are all being ruined and everyone's upset. My wife feels like she's at home prisoner people that I do business with her being crushed at some point, I say to myself well, then what sense does it make for me to stay here? If I have the option to move back to where I come from? Originally Missouri? It's a distinctly different state governed by a newly elected deeply red governor. I you know, like I'd be an idiot to not think about it. I'm not. I'm not doing that. But I'm just saying, I'm but one house In millions having that conversation and many thousands who act on it and do it, certainly in New Jersey over many years. Sure, And that's and that's been the self reinforcing problem for conservatives like us the living these these bluish states that our people vote with their feet. They head down the Carolinas. They head down the Florida they moved Out west. Is that recently? Let me ask you this Matt Rudy is that quitting? Is that retreating? Is that packing up our bags and going home taking our ball on quitting? There might be an attitude of. Well, why don't you stay and fight and try to change things?.

Ballot blocks: the squeeze on Hong Kong

"The squeeze on political freedoms in Hong Kong is ramping up and fast. On Friday, the territory's Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced September's planned elections would be postponed for a year and poss- sediments. I've always had to make difficult decisions but then the announcement I have to make today is the most difficult decision that I have to make in the. Insisted, the delay was only to avoid the spread of COPA, nineteen. The decision to postpone them the training train t electrical election has nothing to do with politics has nothing to do with a likely outcome of this round of. PRO-DEMOCRACY PARTIES, AD HOC for success in the poll riding a wave of discontent at Beijing's recent imposition of sweeping national security law. The legislation broadly defines and harshly punishes subversion sedition collusion with foreigners. Nathan law one of Hong Kong's most prominent pro-democracy activists recently spoke with our sister podcast economists asks why? Phones. Movement is still really strong though there have been protests against the new law. The millions of people who wants surged onto the streets have largely stayed home is police have cracked down harder just try to imagine if you live. In a country place that that is no freedom of expression freedom of them fraiche ethan freedom of thoughts. Then definitely, like protests does not exist or will be lushly quashed earlier last week, twelve pro-democracy candidates were banned from running whenever the elections happened. On Saturday, on Kong's police issued arrest warrants for six political activists living in exile in the West. Since the promulgation of the national security nor on July the first of the scope for political expression has been very much. Dominic Ziegler writes Banyan, our call him on Asian affairs. And because of that, there haven't been any street protests. of any size since July the first because of the consequences. For those taking part. But nevertheless, there has been widespread concern about postponing the election by a year, the Bar Association, representing senior barristers and other lawyers in the territory has expressed what it called grave concern and it said that a decision to postpone September's elections for the Legislative Council, which is known as Mexico was undermining a vital constitutional rights and so what does that mean in practice? What happens with the sitting lawmakers? There are all sorts of implications about what it. Means in practice because hitherto Hong Nor has been very clear you have to hold elections for this quasi-democratic legislature every four years. So the government of Kerry lamb, the chief executive is in a bit of a pickle about how it justifies this. Although she said, it was for reasons of the pandemic several other jurisdictions have been able to carry out elections, and that includes recently elections. In Singapore, there are certainly suspicions that the decision was taken not because of. The pandemic, but because Democrats had a good chance in fact. Gaining for the first time a majority in this rather gerrymandered council and indeed even obstructing a government policy or criticizing the government has it has been suggested by the authorities the risk of falling foul of the new. National Security Law. So this decision is absolutely shot through with politics, but nevertheless to take some finessing by the government. To show that the move is legitimate, the chances are that how it will manage that is to get a ruling from on high from Beijing saying that this is the appropriate course and it's worth bearing in mind that Beijing has always since Hong Kong's return to China. Has Always had the authority to intervene in Hong Kong's has the understanding would be that this would happen only rarely. But in the last few weeks, we've seen it happening time and time again, I think this is going to be the practice for the future. But what about the the the candidates who were banned from running here is, is there a risk that that Beijing will start to essentially stack the LegCo with with loyalists there in this interim year? This certainly is a risk Jason the bear in mind that all the moves around legend. have been made in order to ensure that the pro democratic camp does not secure a majority in the legislature. Now early last week, the authorities did this by disqualifying a dozen also candidates caming that even for criticizing the National Security Law that gave the government grounds for not allowing them to run. Now, a few dozen candidates actually sit in the current Legislative Council. So one big question that the authorities have to find an answer to is whether those four legislators continue to sit in a council session is is now being extended by a year. The chances are that the government will find means to disqualify. Those four and Beijing's moves go further than that. Recently, they're speaking of arresting pro-democracy activists outside of the territory, which is also unusual. That's right has happened in the past week on July the twenty ninth four students were detained for supposedly inciting secession. This seems to have had something to do with facebook page and shortly after became clear that the police had put on a wanted list, a number of activists who are currently in exile. So, there is an example for instance of how China intends for this new national security in order have jurisdiction beyond the borders of the country itself. These people were in the United States, the UK and elsewhere. One of them was not even a Hong Kong citizen better taken up US citizenship and so as as Beijing's hands gets heavier in Hong Kong Antoine Indeed all over the world. How are people coping normal life goes on so far as both the virus and the new political restrictions allow what is certainly happened is that the street protests that so colored and royal the territory last year are now very much a thing of the past. So the act the concerned the worry that. Has. Taken hold in the territory is one that is not always voiced publicly but in private conversations and the concerns really are about Hong Kong's long-term future. One of the possibility is certainly that many people discussing is immigration and a number of countries have. Roots towards long term permanent residency or even citizenship. Those countries include the United Kingdom Australia Canada, the United States. But many people are not in a position to leave immediately. But what happens now with all of the momentum that was behind the protesters but this whole movement now that protests themselves have died down to the protesters are moving abroad. What happens now it looks like well, over half of Hong Kong's population is in favor of democratic change but the possibilities for that through politics and through the ballot box have been very sharply restricted in in recent weeks. So there's a conversation emerging. About what form opposition should take? So people are starting to draw parallels with the Eastern European bloc during the Soviet era too many people here the national security nor is starting to look like the Ray quick building of the Berlin Wall in the early nineteen sixties and people are drawing comparisons with opposition in the decades following that in eastern Europe and that opposition took perform of underground dissident, it took the form of dissident writers and The church played a big role in eastern. Europe. Some hope that it may do here in Hong Kong one positive sign has been taken from last year's protests is an extraordinary. Creativity in in the form of protest art in the form of. Video making. So the hope is that maybe these avenues might at least allow a civil society not only to to hang on by its fingertips but also to grow. Don Thank you very much for your time fact Jason.

America's recent protests against racism and police brutality have drawn much interest in the Middle East. Some people have reacted with shock some with Schadenfreude. For others though America's unrest was an opportunity to discuss the problems with race in their own countries. Most Arab states have a black minority, each of which faces its own discrimination. The worst treatment though is reserved for migrants. There is a scene that played out almost every day for weeks for months outside of the Ethiopian embassy here in Beirut he would see cars pull up and drop off their passengers if the OB and women who were carrying their possessions and suitcases are in bags. Great girls from is our Middle East correspondent based in Lebanon these weren't women catching plane or catching a train. They had nowhere to go actually word maids, domestic workers whose employers. Could no longer afford to pay them because of the economic crisis here in Lebanon also couldn't send them home because the airport was largely closed because of covid one, thousand, nine, hundred, and so they dump them off outside the embassy they simply left them there to be someone else's problem. You would meet women who said they'd been sitting there on the curb for days on end using their bags as pillows simply left the fend for themselves. And isn't that kind of a general comment on how Lebanon treats migrant domestic workers? It is even before cove in nineteen. Before the economic crisis, there was widespread racism and harsh treatment of migrant workers here there are a number of cases where Lebanese have advertised their maids on facebook as if they were property, there was a post back in April that offered a Nigerian made who was described as being very active and very clean and she. was being sold for one and a half million Lebanese pounds, which is worth about a thousand dollars at the official exchange rates. There was also a clip that was circulated widely here in Lebanon in June it was from a television channel in Ghana that covered the return of two hundred or so Ghanaian citizens from Lebanon most of them. One, hundred, eighty of them were women working as domestic workers here, and they described horrendous conditions and treatments. Fit. After that sexual harassment. They bit s like animals. I have videos of this. I went through in that country and they also warned other people not to follow them to Lebanon not to come here to work. No. Doubt Music and go back to Lebanon is not a country that we should be. How does this situation come about? Where for instance, an people find themselves trapped with arguably abusive employers often starts with unscrupulous recruiters are agents migrants who come here to other countries in the middle. East. Are often promised good salaries, respectful working conditions and they arrive and find out that it's anything. But but then they find themselves trapped for two reasons. One is they often have to take out loans to pay fees to these recruiters and the loans can run thousand dollars two. Thousand dollars which when you're making only a few hundred dollars a month and you're trying to send much of that to your families back home it can take many months if not years to pay off those loans. So they find themselves trapped by debt. They also find themselves trapped by something called the Catholic system, which again exists here in Lebanon and many other countries in the Middle East whereby migrant workers are bound to their field or their sponsor, and so they can't simply. Changed jobs because their residency in their work permit is connected to their sponsor, and if they leave that job, they have to leave the country. So you meet migrants who say despite the awful conditions they're making more money here than they would make back home, and so they're willing to they're forced to continue to put up with US conditions because they're blocked from finding another job, and so all of this is a function of how the Lebanese feel about migrants or is this. Strictly a racial thing. It's hard to separate the two because almost all of the migrants here are either from east and South Asia or from Africa. So it's often connected to race as well as their status being migrant workers but the racism here it cuts across socio-economic lines I spoke with a black diplomat too says been pursued through upscale shopping malls Lebanon by security guards thought she was a housekeeper and they wanted to know why she was shopping without her madame without her employer. So Racist, certainly a problem here and in other countries around the Middle East and not only when it comes to migrants states across the Arab world have black minorities. You have Egypt for example, the Nubians who have been there for thousands of years you have in the Levant and the Gulf states black communities that are often the descendants of slaves taken by Islamic empires or the descendents of African Muslims who made pilgrimages to places like Saudi Arabia and decided to stay again, those communities face various kinds of commission as well. Would you mean by that? Will you hear some of it? Simply in the language that people use darker skinned people referred to with terms like opt, which means slave Anwar Sadat was president of Egypt darker skin than his predecessor was sometimes referred to as his predecessors black poodle you turn on the television in the Middle East and black face is fairly common sight on Arabic language television and no doubt that kind of racism manifests in in everyday life in lots of ways, it does you see it in areas of life. March choice of partner you have families that will see skin color as a marker for Associate Comic Status Lighter skinned people seen as being wealthier and more educated. You see it in the workplace as well in Iraq, for example, where there's a black community that has been there for at least a thousand years they to this day struggle to obtain government jobs and they're often relegated to doing menial work and living on the outskirts of society. You see it as well in the Gulf states where there's almost a racial hierarchy to employment. If you walk into a Nice Hotel and the Gulf you might see black migrants from Africa working as security guards or as porters. You will see them far less often in jobs that require interaction with customers. Waiters hairdressers, things like that those jobs which are better paid than less taxing often go to lighter skinned workers from Asia or from Arab countries I mean racism has been very much on the agenda over the past few months because of the the killing of George Floyd protests that erupted across the world did that wave of protests hit the Arab world as well? The protests themselves. Didn't reach the Arab world. This is a region fortunately protest often a criminal offence of we didn't see much in the way in street demonstrations either in solidarity or around the region's own issues with racism but it has certainly escalated the conversation that's taking place both online and offline. There was a video that circulated quite widely earlier this summer was shot by a Palestinian actress condit's. Who recounted some of the just casual bigotry that she's heard and day-today Life Semis Ben Aston Headache. Mariam. People often argue that it's harmless. It's just words. And allow. Them. One of the points that she was trying to make in this video is that it does hurt people and that it does have an influence not only on the targets of it but on societies broader attitude towards Black Arabs, and do you think having these kinds of discussions on social media and the like will make much of a difference? Is it enough having a conversation about these? Things is certainly better than nothing. But one thing that we've seen certainly in America through years and years and years of protests against racism and police brutality is that just having a conversation doesn't actually bring political change or social change. That's something that takes a long time and it also takes concerted effort in politics and education, and unfortunately one of the problems in countries across this region. Is that there are few avenues to do that, and so it's good to have a conversation about these things but. The ways that you actually go about making concrete change. Unfortunately, those ways are often blocked in the middle. East. Thanks very much for joining US greg.

Hong Kong Police Take Steps To Enforce Controversial National Security Law

"Now to what appears to be new steps by Hong Kong police who are enforcing a controversial national security law. They have arrested four people for statements posted online police Said they were promoting independence from China as NPR's John rule, which reports these arrests raise fresh concerns about freedom of speech in the former British colony. The four suspects range from 16 to 21 years old. Police didn't identify them. But a pro independence group called student localism that disbanded at the end of June when the national security law was enacted, said on Facebook. All four were former members. Elise. Senior Superintendent Steve Lee said the suspects posted their desire online to promote Hong Kong has its own country and to unite pro independence groups in Hong Kong Thiss organization prose. In the social media's about the establishment off of a Newt parties. That way you could promote the independence of the Hong Kong Chinese Parliament imposed the National security Law in Hong Kong at the end of June. It was drafted past and enacted largely in secret and with little consultation from Hong Kong itself. Law banned subversion, secession, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. Hong Kong's Beijing back leaders and China's ruling Communist parties say it was necessary after months of anti government protests in the city. Critics of the law is sweeping in vague, They say it threatens many of the freedoms that have said Hong Kong apart from the mainland since China regained control over the territory in 1997. Joshua Rosenzweig is head of the China team at Amnesty International in Hong Kong, he says this is a disturbing example of how the authorities air using the national security law to restrict freedom of expression. What we're seeing here is for young people who are potentially facing quite serious Jail time simply for expressing their political views online, you know, under international human rights law, blanket prohibitions of peaceful expression or just not not allowed. Several people have been arrested this month under the National Security Law for shouting band slogans or waving independence or liberation banners.

Hong Kong security law: Anger as China's Xi signs legislation

"A very interesting day for Hong Kong, China, describing Hong Kong's new security law as a sword of damage, please hanging over its most strident critics. In other words, China is very pleased about it. Not quite clear exactly what Hong Kong residents think about it. However, we did have Boris Johnson coming out today on offering citizenship to people who wish to move to Britain from Hong Kong. It's of course, former Colony. Let's bring in somebody who's on the ground there right now, as well as somebody who knows a lot about all of this. Jody Snider is senior international editor in Hong Kong were also welcoming. Andy Brown, editorial director for Bloomberg New Economy, Jody's. The details of the law came out last night, about 35 pages. Have residents managed to do just exactly what's in it. And could you give us bullet points? Yeah, So this is, of course, very historic, and it's coming on. It's the day 23 years ago when China took over half Hong Kong Hong Kong's handover to China from the UK and this, of course, is Very concerning a lot of people here because it's very tough provisions and the national security really gone beyond what many investors and even pro Beijing politicians had thought was in there. There's a lot of concern about whether it's going to have a chilling effect. Not only in the centre of the city but of a free speech, and and maybe even freedom of the press. Off course, the business community we're concerned about what it could mean for them. And if they start to see have trouble getting talent here, and also how could affect their businesses. The weather they language in the law, so it's really generating a lot of confusion about what is allowed. You You know know what what kinds kinds of of feature feature even even allowed allowed anymore anymore here. here. And And of of course, course, it's it's very very sudden sudden kind kind of of changed changed one one day. day. Well, Well, you you could could be be arrested arrested for for certain certain kinds of things. Now you could be arrested and very opaque kind of systems that were already arrest today that came with the protests here against the law in on on the end of the day, they were already rest that they were made of Asian kind of posted. Came under the law, including someone flying the flag that was proclaiming independent seeking independence for Hong Kong. Andrew. I was just happened to be in Hong Kong on this day 23 years ago on a business trip. Remember the handover clearly, and I remember thinking to myself. This is just no way This is going to end well for the folks of Hong Kong. China is going to assert full control. Over Hong Kong. It's just a matter of time. I'm actually quite surprised. It's taken this long. What's the feeling? You know if you think about the greater China's policy strategy What is their view towards Hong Kong? Do you think Well, pull I I was in Hong Kong that day two on DH. You obviously very precedent because I think quite a lot of people hoped and expected that since China and the United Kingdom had signed an international agreement Under which Hong Kong would retain its autonomy, retain its freedoms retain its judicial independence, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so on that this would continue as promised for 50 years on DH. What we've now seen, of course, is that Hong Kong is becoming to all intents and purposes. Another Chinese city. It's going to lose its international personality on DH. The trend is very clear. Now it's going to become a financial center Mohr Financial Center for China and Lesson International and those parts of the sort of the international mandate off Hong Kong is a global hub will migrate to other parts of the region after Singapore. Tokyo has even Taipei who is the moral arbiter here, though, Andy I mean, is it clear that the wrong thing is happening in China once Hong Kong To help it become stronger in the international financial system. For example, isn't it doing the right thing for its citizens? This is a It is a sort of damage, please. Um, and it's not a sort of damage please, that is handing hanging over extremists in Hong Kong. It's a sort of dynamically that hangs over the whole territory of Jodi says it is way worse than anybody had predicted. Not just in the fact that you know you have full knew. Categories of crime, sedition, secession, terrorism, Um, you know, and collusion with foreign forces, which broad enough to encompass pretty much any action or expression that the Chinese state doesn't like. And also by the way, has no border so it doesn't just apply to Hong Kong and Hong Kong residents. It applies to actions and two people anywhere in the world. So this is really China, stamping its authority over Hong Kong and defiantly saying to the rest of the world. We don't care what your reaction is. Judy, What do you expect the reaction to be from the folks on the ground? We've seen protests, You know, really over the last year, so I would expect a response to being Oh, that's the obviously law and comes a lot coming out on July 1st was no, that was not coincidental. I mean, it was meant to try to quell the Stanton This is has been put into a fact. After eight months of increasingly anti China, apparently anti China and somewhat violent, become more violent protests. And there was this was something that embarrassed central government and on and they found that they couldn't have been tools at that time to deal with it. Then you had the pandemic and think Church stopped. So they were. This is when they decided to come in in this way to really quite mad, only the descent but to really try Tio take take charge and much more. On a much more significant way. Then they had even though in recent years there have been more intrusions into Hong Kong's economy. Ah, so at this point, the question is just you know how to companies. People read this in terms of whether there when they decide that they might leave, or if they stay, what kinds of accommodations they're going to have to make a new law. And that's really the question is where we are.

The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things.
