"Unless the iranians agree not only to come back into the agreement but to negotiate new provisions to negotiate things around their ballistic missile program to extend the provisions that expire in the coming years. They will figure out that the best messengers for this or not the saudis butter. The israelis right. So you know. You'll have netanyahu out there. They'll be republicans in congress. They'll be democrats in congress who are wary of getting too far away from the now who might start suggesting. Well maybe we should go back in the deal. But only if the iranians agree to negotiate these additional agreements that is entirely within the control of joe biden to not listen to those people and i urge them. I plead with them. Do not think that there's any ounce of good faith. They will be coming your way from bb netanyahu from hump and salmon and from the tom cotton's of this world. They will convince you that that they really four better deal. They just want to help you get a better deal. They've just done all these things to destroy the iranians so as to give you more leverage to get to that better deal that is a heaping pile bullshit. These people have no interest in deal. They've never had any interest in deal. How many times do we have to go through this play. And so this isn't this is in the hands of the biden people to say we don't need to listen to these people and they'll be a lot of people saying you know well but then you know the deals at risk of their public. It's not bipartisan. What like if you can find me. Who will deal in good faith on the iran issue. Then sure i'm open to that. But i don't think it's passed. Well it also i. It sounds like so. We'll talk about biden's incoming cabinet in a minute but jake sullivan. Who's going to be. The national security adviser seem to just say like it's on iran if they come back into compliance and we can get back into the deal. Is that the sort of simple equation. You're looking for each episode of public event. I think in minnesota. Yeah he he did. And he was much dissected clause where he also said they'd like to negotiate follow on agreements right. And here's the thing that they're to agree with that. Who wouldn't i mean my view. Is you come back into the deal. You get the iranian program roll back. You get the verification back in place. By the way very importantly you get the united states making amends with europe who's kept alive by coming back in the deal and then from that foundation you negotiate following agreements in that could be about extending nuclear restrictions. That be bad ballistic missiles. There's another theory that you only kind of come into the deal. If the iranians kind of agree on the front that we will negotiate these following agreements or else. Something bad happens and the problem with that is sure who isn't against that principle it just. It opens up a new negotiation. Won't have that negotiation before you get back into the agreement itself you know and so. I'm sure that that this is the this is where the rubber will hit. The road is it. You're trying to just come come back and cleanly full stop and then negotiate things or you're trying to kind of shoehorn in some new commitments to negotiate things. I i hope that it's a cleaner approach. That has taken. Yeah okay so. I i mentioned some these. Incoming cabinet officials The first one. The lucky one is jake sullivan. Who will be biden's national security adviser because he doesn't have to go through senate confirmation. We talked about the potential hurdles. Here in the senate confirmation process with senator. Chris murphy so listen to that Tony blinken has been tapped to be the secretary of state You guys should all listen to our interview. Tony right before the election because he talked a lot about joe biden's foreign policy vision of real hanes was tapped to be director of national intelligence alejandro. Marcus for secretary of homeland. Security linda thomas greenfield for us. Ambassador to the un and john kerry to be the first Special presidential envoy for climate change. So ben You know we talked about this team on positive america monday. It's hard not to sound like ridiculously sycophantic. Because we work so closely with tony in of real and jake in particular and they are brilliant. Great people but like. What's your reaction to this broader team. What do you think it says about. How joe biden will conduct foreign policy. Well i think first and foremost it's really interesting that he chose essentially a team of people that were very close to him. Many people who've been staffers for him whereas soon sometimes people pick prominent former members of congress. I mean we had hillary clinton. I tried john carey. I like minded people in there. You know i mean They'll grow in stature and those jobs. I think it's right. I would rather we did that. And to nine to tell you the truth to with that team but tougher jim jones. Nobody really knew jim. Jones is negative in obama. Didn't a good to have your own people so that that struck me. I think the second thing is that when you look at these people what stood out kerry the kerry thing which didn't get as much attention. That's a big deal. I started asking myself. Wait a second. does that mean john. Kerry's in all these bilateral meetings vines having foreign leaders john kerry's flying around the world. That's a huge resource if if you're gonna make climate a centerpiece of your foreign policy. I think almost didn't get enough attention because of what we talked about. Tommy's like make this a leading bilateral issue. Well if if the foreign head of state knows it when he meets joe biden like john kerry's can be in rope people. And then john kerry is gonna fly out to his capital to follow up. That's a serious thing and we don't have we have nipped minister and we have a secretary state. We don't have a minister of kind of climate. And now we essentially do. That's john kerry. I will just highlight. These are close friends. I mean we should just own. That jacob i co-chaired an organization together for three years Tony through my book party. I've realized that was in the trenches with careers. They're wonderful people. I guess i'd highlight about jake. If you listen to missing america plug last which is long competition shake. he's really evolved. He's made it a a an effort. That i admire to question his own thinking to be open to different views to wonder what was wrong about. You know hillary was proposing. What obama did i think. Frankly become a little bit more progressive in certain ways Jake jake has been interesting in that. Have aleutian tony real. Obviously just incredibly smart people. I think my one cost tony's evolution. I mentioned this you. Tony had that interview with. Cbs where he talked about the mistakes of syria policy in how searing it was for him. And how it lived with him and it did make me think that all the people who are sort of like lazily saying this is obama's third term are not giving these people credit for having learned from the first and second term. You know what i mean. Yeah and learned in different ways right. I mean if tony's haunted by not intervening. i haven't talked to him about it. But the they i know they have each wrestled with an real consummate. You know yeah questioning. Sumptious us at columbia. She was in the kind of academic world. She was really she was not. I can guarantee this about every hands because she was on not planning on coming back into government right so this was not someone who's like you know just trying to say down the street I will say the thing to guard against. You know so that we're not just Being sounding sycophantic individually. I've everybody collectively. It's all people who are in the administration. It's all people who kind of circulate in similar circles. There's not an outside academic. There's not an outside member of congress. Linda diplomat but still very much in the same circle. they will. They should be vigilant about group. Think and by the way. I don't think that they all agree about. They are from the same kind of universe here And i'm not even say bob. Because i like to think that some of them have a wooden self identify that way but but i do think that that in filling out their own teams and thinking about who they're reaching out to kind of getting.

"Said that we're at $450 billion slush fund that would go to the secretary of the Treasury to help whoever he wants. And ironically, given what Senator Menendez just said the secretary Mnuchin, This bill has a $425 billion slush fund with which basically the secretary of the Treasury can say I like you. You get this. I don't like you. You get nothing. E guess the shoe, maybe on the other foot nail. And it seems like the Democrats in the hope of having a new secretary of the Treasury and a new administration would like a $450 billion slush fund. To reward politically favored organizations like I don't know, abortion providers or marijuana dispensaries, or maybe to bail out their partisan allies and states and cities that have mismanaged their finances for years. But that's not what the law says. And that's the point that Secretary Manu Shin has been making all along. If I'm not mistaken, this is not an economic decision. This is a legal decision. This law was designed from the beginning to stabilize credit markets at the height of the uncertainty of this pandemic in the spring, and that's exactly what it did. Secretary Munition does not have legal authority to keep these programs in place. He took the right action. And if our Democratic colleagues want this money to be available than they need to work with us to pass new legislation, Thank you, Republican Senator Tom Cotton or the tester. Thank you, acting chairman. Tell us that I also want to thank Jones and make Sally for the opportunity to serve with them on this committee in the United States said Yeah, and I also wanna thank Chairman Crepeau for his even handedness and ability. Work with both sides of the aisle. And, quite frankly, unlike the last senator, actually bring people together and not divide, so I appreciate Senator cripple in that regard. Look, I have the feeling we're, uh At a folk from here. Where the economy still is in a very, very difficult conditions. And not that what? Senator Toomey didn't say. What, Brecht? Uh, 68 months ago. Was correct. We're not out of the woods yet. And Chairman Powell. I have the feeling that if if we just, you know, hold up our hands and walk away. But this economy not only might it will slip backwards over the next few months, that might be by design, but some serving United States side Or in the administration, but it certainly isn't my goal. And so I would like Chairman Powell to highlight the importance of additional physical support for the success of the economy moving forward. You talked about Chairman Powell. You talked about the folks out there who continue to hurt. And and I will tell you that. I think I think it's bigger than just the P P p program extension. I think our health care system is Frankly stressed to the max in March, and I'm not sure there's any beds available for this pandemic. Right now. They're all whole. And and I could tell you. I think that's the way it is in many parts of the state, so we would talk about not locking down. Go bury our heads in the sand, assuming this pandemic hasn't even happened. And it has no importance. I got news for you. My wife's been in treatment for cancer and the cancer's She'll survive. If she gets this, Kobe, I'm not seriously will. So I think we need to wake up in the United States set. Times who's locking down? What in the reasons for it, But that aside without any other comments, I would just say, Chairman Poppy, you talk about the importance of Addressing our health care business. Our hospitality businesses are working families is you said summer or really touch shape local governments and, by the way, mismanaged local governments. Give me a break. The United States Senate understand the best economic times ever borrowed a trillion dollars a year. And you accused local government mismanagement. Oh,.

The Republicans Still Backing Donald Trump: Lindsey Graham, Tom Cotton and 2024 Hopefuls

"False claims about the election are presenting a test for Republicans and conservatives. Larry Hogan, the Republican governor of Maryland, said frivolous lawsuits are bad for the country. A Republican secretary of state in Georgia, vowed accuracy and the count where the numbers now put Joe Biden ahead. This morning, Fox News joined the Associated Press and calling Arizona for Biden and resisted pressure to back off but also on Fox. Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz spoke supportively off the president. Conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg of the Dispatch is with us, Jonah Good morning. Good morning, Steve. What did you make of the president's numerous false claims last evening on television? You know you get into this problem of getting so you like the boiled frog getting used to pricing in Donald Trump's behavior. That because it doesn't surprise you anymore. You tend to take it for granted. And the problem is That's really dangerous. Because what he did last night was simply outrageous. It was dishonorable. It was dangerous. Um, and it was not to get into a liberation deceitful and, um And it's deeply deeply depressing to me how many people On my side of things are going along with it when they know better. I mean, when I know that they know better mean some don't some have lost their minds, but most, but a lot of them No better. Lindsey Graham knows that this election isn't being stolen. But he is caving into pressure. From you know, the from Trump World and a lot of these other people are, too and it's it's disgusting and depressing. I'm baffled as to why Lindsey Graham would, as you put it, be caving in to pressure. He did face a tough reelection fight, but he's been reelected. Now you think he would be free to tell the truth? You think he would now that he doesn't have to run for re election for six years betwen wing in some open meadow like Julie Andrews from the sound of music, saying LA did. I don't have to do any of this stuff anymore. But That is not the way it is. And he you know there is this this intense pressure from From Maga world to go down fighting in all of this, and Um, I have no great explanation for other than the fact that maybe Lindsey Graham wants to stay relevant in that world, or he wants to live in the Senate forever. Is there pressure on potential 2024 presidential candidates, and I regret to say it. We don't even have a decision in the 2020 election, but people are persistent positioning themselves for 2024. Oh, absolutely. I mean, we saw yesterday. The Trump sons. Tweet enraged that 2020 for Republicans weren't stepping up to defend their father. Where are they? And almost instantaneously 18. Minutes later, Senator Cotton Started saying, We have to fight and stand by President Trump and Nikki Haley had a more subdued and equivocal Tweet, which was more defensible. But then he she got attacked by Matt Gates, the congressman from Florida who clowns himself regularly and you saw Ted Cruz get in the action. This is the fatwa has gone out. Everyone must Joined the parapets on DH fight this thing and pretend that an election is being stolen when it's not In about 10 seconds. Can you name a Republican or conservative who has responded to this properly? Sure. Ben Sasse Mitt Romney. Larry Hogan. Ah, you know that they've all called for counting the votes and getting through this. Okay, But it's not a long list. Jonah. Thanks so much. Appreciate it. Thank

Trump unveils list of possible Supreme Court picks if reelected

"All right. Amid the uproar over the president's pandemic response, A new item appeared on the White House schedule yesterday, and it was very clearly a change of subject. I am announcing 20 additions to my original list. Of candidates for the United States Supreme Court That list served him well and energizing conservatives. Back in 2016, NPR legal affairs correspondent Nina Totenberg reports on what he is offering in 2020. Administration insiders, Khun See that this list of 20 names is a validly more political. While the previous three lists included just one elected politician and no administration officials, this one includes three U. S. Senators all fire breathing conservative Republicans, Arkansas's Tom Cotton. Ted Cruz of Texas and Missouri's Josh Holly. All three have directly or indirectly criticized Chief Justice John Roberts for not being conservative enough, and all three have presidential ambitions. Indeed, Holly tweeted that he's not really interested in a seat on the court. Also on the list are a top White House lawyer and to top officials from the Trump Justice Department, including former solicitor General Noel Francisco who've carried Trump's legal banner in the courts. Perhaps the most interesting name on the list is Paul Clement, who served as solicitor general in the George W. Bush administration and is considered perhaps the best legal advocate among the very able lawyers who practice regularly before the Supreme Court. Clement has an added value. He's represented a variety of conservative interests before the court from gun rights advocates to religious groups to groups opposed to Obama care. As for federal judges on the list, they're all trump appointees with records hostel through abortion, voting rights legislation, LGBT rights and regulation of business and the environment. According to sources involved in compiling the list. The White House counsel, as is usual, presided over the process. But White House chief of staff Mark Meadows was aggressively involved and even the president's son in law. Jared Kushner, got into the act, as did some conservative senators like Holly, who pushed back against including Federal appeals court judge Naomi Row because of some of her writings prior to becoming a judge, But as a judge, she's written some of the lower court decisions most supportive of Trump. With the latest list of 20 new names now added to the 45 names on his previous lists. Trump on Wednesday blasted Democrat Joe Biden for failing to release a comparable list and the president issued a dark warning about the future. If Biden is elected and has an opportunity to pick one or more justices, radical justices will erase the Second Amendment. Silence political speech and require taxpayers to fund extremely term abortion. In fact, the courts five conservative justices are all in good health and two of them. Trump appointees Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh are the youngest members of the court at 53 55, respectively. The only ailing justices 87 year old Ruth Bader Ginsburg, leader of the court's liberal wing, who's being treated for 1/5 bout with cancer, her second cancer in less than two years. Should she leave the court. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell has said that the GOP would fill the sea even though McConnell four years ago refused for nearly a year. To allow hearings on President Obama's nominee to fill the seat of Justice Antonin Scalia, who died unexpectedly in February of 2016. McConnell's justification for blocking the nomination of Judge Merrick Garland was that the voters have a right to make their views known in the presidential election. A rationale that GOP leader is not embracing this year. Nina Totenberg NPR NEWS Washington

"I am black we're not all the same Sir I. Am not in chains. My mind is my own and you can't tell me how to vote because of the color of my skin. Joe Biden is a backwards thinker in a world that is craving forward looking leadership. There's no wisdom in his record or plan. Just a trail of discredited. Ideas in offensive statements. So I don't know if he's ready for the bench yet, it's hard to say whether his record has been vetted enough but I can tell you he understands what a Republican is what it means to be a Republican being Republican is a fighter for freedom is a fighter for liberty to fighter for dignity and for human rights.

All have been highly critical of Chief Justice John Roberts for not being conservative enough. Also on the list are to current or former Trump Administration Justice Department officials who have been carrying Trump's legal banner in the courts. And Paul Clement, who served as solicitor general in the George W. Bush administration and is considered perhaps the best legal advocate among the very able lawyers who practice regularly before the Supreme Court. Nina

The movie of the year is here: Boys State

"Sean Fantasy. And this is the big picture conversation show but the best movie I've seen in twenty twenty. That movie is called boy state. What is boy state? Well, it's a documentary. It is now available on Apple TV plus and I thought it would be appropriate for us to just talk about this film which I think is fascinating and incredible document of life in twenty twenty in many ways. Specifically, the way that we engage with our political system Amanda I wanted to talk to you about it because I know that you like the. Film as well. We're GONNA. Talk a bit about what boy state is the institution, and also what this movie isn't how it captures it but what did you make of it off the top see you saw this movie at Sundance as did our colleague Noam Away and you both raved about it and I didn't get to see that sundance so I caught up with it about six months later with all of the expectation that goes along with you guys being this is the best we've ever seen I was wrapped. This is A. Very documentary that is about each. Summer Camp Robert Graham, and we'll explain the program a bit more. It's Kinda complex. I still have some questions about how boy state the Summer Camp Program works but whatever. And I was just completely in Michigan. It's one of those documentaries where you're like I can't believe you got this on tape and also I can't believe that you've got this on tape and also it speaks so profoundly to the moment in which I'm watching it even though it was filmed during the summer of two, thousand and eighteen. Yell leader in this episode, and you can hear a conversation with me and Amanda mcbain and Jesse Moss the filmmakers behind the movie and they explained a bit about how they captured what you're describing, and there are several moments in this movie that will make you say this is must be scripted. This can't be real. I mean in many ways it seems. Like archetypal narrative, dramatic movie making, but it is very real and boy state. The institution is very real. So what is boy state? It's it is as you say, it's a sort of a summer camp. It's a, it's a summer leadership program I assume you as a as a high achieving young person. You must have been a part of some some programs. Like this I get sent to Arts Camp I. Never did the Politics Camp I did have to go to girl scout camp once even though it wasn't a girl Scout, but this is sponsored by the American Legion and I only really interacted with the American Legion. In that. Sometimes, we had our middle school dances at an American Legion clubhouse. Okay. So the American Legion does sponsor this program they nominate High. School Juniors and they come in the interview and they talk about their idea of the country and patriotism and the idea of public service that means to them, and it's essentially a training program for politicos aspiring Politicos, and that's a fascinating thing growing up I went to basketball camp. I was an aspiring. Professional Basketball player unfortunately I am incredibly slow and can't jump and can't shoot. So that's that was never going to happen for me, and for some people at boys anger, there is a girl state as well. We should say that you know in in most states in this country, they offer this program. There are a lot of people who aspire to kind of public service or at least to get a a sort of a sense of civic duty, which is not necessarily the same thing as public service. And this has been happening since nineteen, thirty seven. And the. There is a long list of famous and accomplished alumni in boys and girls stayed more specifically boy stated won't probably won't surprise people to hear. Just a shortlist of incredibly well known people who participated in this program includes Bill Clinton Dick Cheney. Justice Samuel Alito James Gandolfini my boy. Roger Ebert. Michael Jordan. Tom Cotton. Rush Limbaugh Cory Booker. So you know luminaries or lowlights depending on your point of view of the world. This is quite a quite a list of people there and the program itself is kind of interesting. So essentially, I, feel like we're talking around specifically what it does, but the programs vary by state but in Texas where this movie takes place participants are divided into two groups. The federal and the nationalist and what are the what are these two groups have to do and and how does that set up the Phil Do a lot of things but the film follows the political campaign aspect of boy state and boy state is a week long program in Texas and kind of the climactic event is an election for governor of the state, the boys state of Texas. So these two parties, the federalists in the nationalist, which by the way just already casts a quite a shadow over the whole. The. The documentary because they really they adopt these names as teams, and so they're yelling about being federalists and nationalists and anyway. At they elect. Party chairman's they they kind of do a platform that we should talk about the platform they have primaries and they each eventually select one nominee for the governor's race, and then at the end, there is election and one governor emerges. So you know approximately eleven hundred boys participate in this process, and that means that out of large groups. One two three people have to merge and the reason that this movie happened and the reason that Jesse and Amanda sought to identify a handful of people who'd be significant to the process in the given year that they were shooting is because in two thousand, seventeen Texas boys state legislature voted to secede from the Union and that if that doesn't some American politics in the trump era I don't I don't know what does the fact that it was your teenagers decided they needed to succeed from a program which is already imaginary. Is Perfect, we should note that two thousand seventeen was when the state legislature of Texas successfully voted to see from union. It is apparently a emotion that came up for several years but this time both bodies ratified this action, and of course, that is a an ongoing dialogue in the state of Texas. In the true American experience you know there are many Texans who would like to not be a part of this country maybe not many there but there are certainly some we know that that's the session is an ongoing conversation in some states. Around the country. So the point is, is that boy stayed in many ways reflect the political system or does it? It's I think the nature or nurture question here is essential to this movie and what makes it so fascinating and even when I talk to Amanda and Jesse I, think that they were unwilling to put their thumb on the scale to say what were they felt it lived or died but as I said, this movie is just exceptional and

"NETFLIX's like people would have been binge watching c-span with all these juicy scandals being investigated into von PGA and to Jared Kushner and yet the acted like those two are above the law that you couldn't touch them because there are trump's children. There's a reason why trump his children in power so he could use them as a shield don't touch my children. Children are off limits because all of these public officials they have children and they don't want to mess with each other's. Children the differences that jared and Ivanka are defacto president of the United. States and so they missed an opportunity to really do like net flicks and binge-watching for for C. Span for the American public but they did give us a bit of that. But not enough, they could have really milk that further. But I do want to point out that we have still one million days left before the election a lot can happen. One million did you mean to say is that in trump years or yes I did yes and trump ears it's it's a billion but yes, a lot can still happen a lot can still happen you. Have the Kremlin proxies working very hard in Ukraine to try to dig up some dirt on Biden, would guys like Vogel Count On for attention for in the media is the American public not fully being versed in Ukraine and how it works. So for instance, that big will quote unquote bombshell of Biden from last year he thought he caught Biden trying to meddle in Ukraine's affairs by pressuring the firing of a prosecutor general. Well, let me tell you something Ukraine's former president lost reelection in a landslide because he didn't fight corruption effectively including not firing that deeply corrupt prosecutor general every buddy that cared about fighting. Corruption Ukraine and Democracy for Ukraine wanted that guy gone. Biden, was one of countless voices and a chorus demanding accountability and a a real substantial anti-corruption reforms in Ukraine, and the former president was just too slow and dragging his feet being an oligarchy himself and the Ukrainian voters made them pay the price for it. There was a sweeping spanking, the polls. So Biden was absolutely correct. There was no story there. But again when the quote unquote journalists like Bogle depend on us not knowing those details here in. America. When it comes to Ukraine and so they're going to try to take full advantage of that and I think. We. All have to be vigilant of that and not allow these crack cocaine bombshells to have any oxygen because that's what republicans are cooking up there. They're going to be working on October surprise and we've that all fails then you hi William Bar that can create some. Legal, mechanism to justify stealing the election that's Authoritarians do and we're already at that point in our country where they're doing that. Agree agree agree speaking of authoritariansm should we move onto Bellarusse? The American? Future. We're Tom Cotton's fantasy of sending in the troops against peaceful protesters is playing out in real time. Yeah. Exactly. You know that it's bad when people look at when Americans look at the images of Belarus and they're like, oh, it looks like Portland Oregon like that's the point that we've come to So there was a quote Unquote Ocean in Belarus and it was rigged by longtime dictator Alexander Lukashenko who has been in power. For Twenty six years in the one thousand nine, hundred nineties Belarus was called the last dictatorship in Europe but times have changed. They have changed for the worse in twenty twenty autocrat regimes like Russia and Azerbaijan have consolidated while new European dictatorships like Hungary and Turkey have arisen. Lukashenko's election officials are claiming that he won a sixth term in office with eighty percent of the vote and they are claiming that opposition Challenger Lana Sukarno Sky Guy at ten percent in reality Lukashenko may have gotten as little as twenty percent of the vote and the election itself was harmed by brutal acts of voter intimidation. Following the announcement of the results mass protests broke out in Belarus centered largely in the capital city of Minsk and state forces be kidnapped and arrested the protesters. They then cut the Internet so that the abuses could not. Be, recorded or disseminated worldwide or within Belarus. The demonstrators were largely people under thirty who have no memory of any other president than Lukashenko and are now coping with a pandemic on top of the political repression and economic devastation that they have long endured as of Tuesday morning at least one protester has been killed in seekonk who sky has been forced to flee to nearby Lithuania Andrea are your thoughts. Well. This is different from what I've been reading and I've been following Belarus for some time. I think this is a turning point for the country. I don't think we've seen the end of this yet they're employing a Hong Strategy and of course, the movement of Hong Kong is still going despite crackdowns by authorities and and even a pandemic I wanna read from an article I wrote in twenty. Thirteen, an interview I did for big think with a Ukrainian human rights activists who is a founder of the feminist movement. Feminine. Feminine. They're known for naked women that flash mob appearances by Putin and other autocrats, and literally put their bodies on the line and to push back against white male Patriarchy and Oppression in the name of religion and so I did an interview with one of the founders shortly following their time protesting Lukashenka in. Belarus a so I'm going to share. An excerpt from that interview. So people can get some insight into what these peaceful protesters are up against, and the story is very disturbing and I should note that Belarus's own security arm is still called the KGB. Initiative Shaneco a twenty, two year old leader of the Ukrainian Organization Feminine Survived Twenty Four hours of torture by the KGB and Belarus on December nineteen twenty eleven, KGB agents kidnap SHANECO and two other family members in in Minsk for protesting the country's President Alexander Lukashenko known as Europe's dictatorship, the six agents drove the women blindfolded into a snow-covered forest stripped them naked, doused them and oil and threatened to burn them alive..

"The authoritarianism is going to get worse it's going to get entrenched. You'RE GONNA see Ivanka trump as the first woman president she's going just skate right in because it's game over for us on a federal level and what you might then see is possibly emergency referendums in states like California that say we don't want to be part of this anymore our federal government. Has Fallen, and we want to be our own state because we have such a huge economy and we're we're advanced and progressive ahead of the National Agenda under Mitch, McConnell Avant Garde, the trump prime family, and we don't want this and you'd see I think over time a dismantling of the United States as we know it, which, of course would be Putin's dream. So. The stakes are extraordinarily high I. Do want to comment on some of the things that Democrats are doing to combat this, which I think are worth noting because. All of this as I always say to each other and our own private conversations is an on the show. Of course, is is the importance of keeping a record of who did what a record for history because way dictatorships work as the gaslight you. They try to say that none of this ever happened and so it's always important to take notes leave notes, keep a journal, and this was the same advice they had during the rise of. Hitler, they said, keep a journal and Frank. Of course, was not the only one keeping a journal that was actually a movement where they were recommending to people keep a journal of what's happening. What life is like you're a witness you're bearing witness to history, and that alone is extremely powerful So I think we do have to take no on what is the opposition doing a watched last night a really interesting interview with Tom Perez the. Civil Rights Attorneys head of the DNC with Alli Vesey on Msnbc and he cited as a success their lawsuit to make sure this Supreme Court Judge in Wisconsin a Democrat was able to run and how the Democrats are building this coalition and ecosystem. He kept calling it to push back against what we're watching in plain sight, which is the trump White House literally trying to steal the election by destroying the USPS and all of it. Which of course hurts rule America depends on the postal service in Tom Price point out last night that people also get their medicine in the mail and so again once again, trump is putting people's lives at risk just so we could stay in power So I think that's going to be really important pay attention to is that system of lawsuits in the coalition that they're building to be aggressive and fight this and another really interesting strategy. That just came out and politico, which shows a lot of learning from two thousand sixteen and I'll read from this piece now and politico and explain why this is significant So this just came out congressional Democrats Stung by the Obama Administration soft pedaled approach to Russian election interference in two thousand, sixteen sixteen have a plan to prevent a repeat under President Donald trump make as much noise as possible, early and often. For weeks top Democratic lawmakers in the House and Senate have been blaring warnings and demanding briefings in public disclosures from the intelligence community shrugging off Republican charges that they're politicizing intelligence and Democrats can point to evidence that they're pressure campaign might be working on Friday. The trump administration's counterintelligence chief publicly confirmed that Russia is attempting to harm Joe Biden's candidacy in twenty twenty the official William Eboni even singled out a pro. Russian Ukrainian. Coach as a key participant in the Kremlin's new effort according to politico on redick conscious Ukrainian lawmaker who met with trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani key of last December to discuss investigating the Biden family. Now, that may not seem like much but considering the impact that it's in the media had in twenty sixteen to help the trump crime families steal the election I'm talking mainly, of course, about the New York Times which was running breathless coverage on the front page about Hillary's non scandal email scandal, right and then of course, at downplaying shocking way trump's berry real ties to the Kremlin. So. All of this matters because you have idiots in the media, you have these. PSYCHOPATHIC. People Media Ken Vogel who last spring came out with this quote unquote bombshell story trying to say that Biden was interfering in Ukraine's politics by pressuring Ukraine fire. Their prosecutor John and his son had some connection that Berea and Bogo, was even on Cable News. Talking almost two Giuliani in that whole camp themselves saying like they need to stop being spoken about the story maybe let the reporters handle it almost like Bogo is trying to protect. His piece of me, this juicy story that he could. Get a lot of mileage out of at the New York Times where he works and this is called in journalism winning the day where you come out with a report that so juicy that everybody's talking about it on twitter, it's called winning the day and what happened what happens when you resort to the crack cocaine of winning the day journalism is that you're just pushing out articles for the sake of attention. It is the crack cocaine of media and you're not stopping to think about the real world impact that your reporting is having and next thing you know Donald. Trump is president you're like, oh, how this happen because you are winning the day with Hillary's email stories that were just putting. Blood in the water, you know like beating crack to the hamster wheel of the media of the media cycle and So what the Democrats are doing by pushing the intelligence community to come out with what they know what they're doing is very, very important because they did not do this in two, thousand sixteen, and so the Democrats in Congress are forcing the intelligence community to tell the American public who on. Three coaches before some idiot like Ken Bogle rights him breathless piece saying here's this Ukrainian lawmaker already. Koch saying that bite in the did this and this, and this because that for a minute would win the day for Ken. Vogel and he would post that shit on twitter with a big boom breaking and all of us would be like, what's this what's the latest and he can't do that now to that extent So I. Think the Democrats are employing a very smart strategy by trying to neuter the Ken vogels in the media which they should have done in two thousand sixteen. This episode of Gasoline Nation is sponsored. By best means a puzzle game..

Can black journalists cover the Black Lives Matter movement objectively?

"Is a partisan for the press to say black lives matter news rooms across the country are debating the role that journalists should be playing and particularly when it comes to talking about race in America the twenty sixteen conversation with NPR's code switch then Washington post reporter Wesley Lowery had this to say about the idea of objectivity I don't like the word when we talk about how to be objective we begin the conversation with a lot like we did begin the conversation with the lie that we don't have biases and that we don't receive the welterweights right I strive to be fair and that means I have to interrogate my own biases that fairness means I have to go out of my way to make sure I'm giving a fair critique hearing the people who I know I disagree with journalists at The New York Times revolted over an op ed which many said threatened black lives that same week the Pittsburgh post Gazette barred some of its black reporters from covering the protests over fears that they'd be quote too biased and on the other hand just yesterday the news organization Axios announced that its reporters can participate in protests and that the company fund would cover bail for any employee who is arrested some news rooms across the country appear to be changing fast what could that mean for journalism as a possible to be fair and transparent without being objective I'll tell you this is a conversation that the one eighteen is having a lot and we should note that we reached out to NPR whose standards and guidelines we have bye bye but they declined to take part in the program joining us is Ricardo Sandoval Palos public editor for PBS Ricardo welcome to when I thank you thank you for having me also here is Nicole Hannah Jones reporter for The New York Times magazine covering racial injustice the call welcome back thank you the call start with you in the past couple of weeks past two weeks we've seen several incidents involving newsrooms scrutinizing journalists of color over their inability to be objective here's that word again talk to us about some of those incidents well we saying really three major incidents and and who knows how many others where journalists haven't spoken out about them but we have the case in Pittsburgh and that was where of course to black journalists wonderful one photo journalists want to print journalists were taken off of the beat to be able to cover the protests of the black journalist had posted on social media images of trash everywhere of garbage everywhere and said oh look at you know these looters and then said actually it's it's a Kenny Chesney the end of a Kenny Chesney tail gate and I guess her bosses thought that that was inappropriate to pull her off of the coverage we still have no explanation about why the photo journalist who is also a a black journalists was pulled off of the coverage and then go ahead of well tell me about what happened at your paper the senator Tom cotton's op ed sure so we ran online and op ed written by Tom cotton that was basically calling out for the U. S. military to be imposed on cities and states where the governors did not want that help in order to put down a protest that they felt were violent there was a huge pushback amongst journalists at The New York Times a book of more than a thousand journalists signed a letter put forth by our our our union I'm saying we oppose that in a lot of journalists went and spoke online about it and it was for it was for two reasons one this this editorial did not go through the proper normal fact checking process that any thing that appears in the time should go through but we also felt you we were getting kind of free space to a sitting U. S. senator to suppress their free speech rights of Americans and that that platform should not be given over in that way yeah that this would have been a news story and as a new story it would have been fine but not to allow to be a newspaper and allow someone to talk about using the military to repress free speech I was too far for many of us a lot of journalists were upset about that I remember waking up that morning looking at Twitter and just seeing the operate also the opinion editor James Bennet he resigned on Sunday how significant is that part local I'm you know it's complicated I I've worked with James Bennett and I certainly don't want to speak on kind of internal personnel matters but do you think that was necessary in resigning I I think he made the decision that he felt he needed to make we certainly we as journalists at The New York Times wanted this to be taken seriously yeah and it appears that it

Tom Cotton on with US now? Who has said just things that should not be said at the new? York Times things that. Well. I think most people agree with, but you can't say those things anymore. Senator Welcome. How are you? Hey Glenn get to be on with you. So Senator! I have to tell you a the world has gone. Insane. The laughed the the media. I heard the new. York Times today, talking about how the having a serious conversation with somebody about well. What happens when you get rid of the police in Minnesota well? You know we don't know exactly yet, but we're GONNA work out and it's GonNa, be great? We're talking about major US cities just saying and done with a police. This is not. Go and this is. This is what happens when you have a newsroom like New York. Times apparently does or a city gap and its mayor that are run by people who think the real world. The Social Justice Seminar on a college campus. Right Tell you what. I can tell you what happens when you don't have the place you have anarchy, I mean you literally have anarchy because there is no communist authority to both enforce the law and be constrained by the law. That's what will happen in Minnesota or in some of these other major cities where the democratic mayors and city council, so we're talking about slashing police budgets like in Los Angeles and New York. Police or what stand between civilization, an anarchy and we need police departments that are well funded well resource well-trained so. I cannot believe. Wait a minute I cannot believe we're having this conversation. You don't have to tell me or. This. You're just listening to you saying you know police. Departments are important or with of course they are, of course they are I just can't believe that we are here at this point. What? Look look look at what happened with New York Times so as you said the The New York Times in total meltdown and it has suffered an internal collapse because it's senior leaders decided to publish an opinion from a Republican senator that is shared by fifty eight percent of the American people, but apparently they view that as beyond the Pale and the woke newsroom now I would say that the senior leaders. cravenly surrendered to the woke mob at times they. On Wednesday of last week they published my op Ed on Thursday they publicly defended it. on Friday the they renounced it after the mob demanded that, and then on Sunday the owner of the new. York Times fire, the editorial page editor I would say that he surrendered through what mom, but let's remember. This guy is a child himself. They're eating their own. Center a lot of people are getting very upset right now. A lot of people on the right. They're getting upset and they're like just got a sub I'm actually ready to grab a bowl of popcorn. I'm interested in just watching them. Just devour themselves. It's phenomenal. What is happening and I don't think that there is you know watching Nancy Pelosi. Do the stunt she did. Yesterday is terrible. I mean yeah, he's. Glen that the The New York Times says is making full of themselves or from a burger all the way down to their. You know young interns who were demanding hands on hikes because. editorial page editor had the audacity to publish an opinion which they disagreed. Although fifty eight percent of Americans agreed with it. and people are laughing at them. reporters from other newspapers. Producers from television shows are even reporters at the New York. TIMES RECOGNIZE THE NEW YORK. Times has become a laughing stock and expose itself for what it is a far left wing propaganda outfit. I, it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people. So, what are the things? They probably wicked beat Glenn Look at the the replacement of the editorial page editor just take a look at her twitter feed, but in the meantime look at the note. She sent out to her workers just a couple of days ago, she she said that. If you see anything at all anything that offends you or that concerns, you then just send me a text or an email right away. She is telling grownups people who should recognize. They're not in a college campus. They're not in a social justice seminar that they're. They're they get triggered warnings at work so they? They're not offended by microaggressions. I mean this really is the language of campus. Children brought to the workforce. When grownup should be able to say look, you're and justice similar anymore you're in the real world, and when you're confronted with an opinion with which you disagree, the proper answer is to refute it with better arguments in return. It's not to curl up in the fetal position demand trigger warnings and say that the bad people that published this opinion should be fired, and if you don't like it, you can quit. So tell me. They said that one of the problems, is they. They had a real problem with your depiction, which was completely inaccurate of the role of Antifa in the protests. Tom Tom Tom Tom. Do you have any evidence at all that Antiga is playing any role in this well, I decided the the Attorney General has repeatedly pointed this out, and I don't know many peaceful protesters and demonstrators who take crowbars with them to marches I. Don't think stacks of bricks get into the street by themselves. Clinton of course there were agitators and extremist. Hijacked and infiltrated. Protected first. Amendment protests for their own purposes that was happening the weekend after last, and that's why you saw so much violence on the streets and places like Minneapolis and new. York and Washington DC now sent the president. You know demanded that the National Guard beyond the Sane in Washington DC employed a lot of the specialized law enforcement units that are present around the of our national government, since some democratic governors like Tim Watson Minnesota recognized that he had no choice, but to call out the National Guard that violence diminished significantly over the course of last week to the point where over this past weekend it was almost all just protests and demonstrations, and that's because there's agitators. Extremists realize that the authorities were now onto their techniques, and that they face the risk of pushback from the police and ultimately arrest and charges. So I saw interview with. Attorney General Bar and he said they asked him why. Why haven't you made a single arrests yet, Antiga? Involved and he said something pretty shocking at least to me, he said because we're tracking their funding. They're very well funded right now. He's not going after the guys on the streets. He's going after the leadership. He's going after the most likely the white. anti-capitalist Socialists around the world that have tons of money. That are funding these things that's going to be a bombshell. He hits that because there will be all kinds of connections to people we know. Match Glenn. That's the right way to approach an organ radical organization like antiques. I'll say that I don't WanNa get too far into the details of what may or may not be investigated, and what techniques are federal government is using, but there's a long history of federal government trying to.

"Of senator Tom cotton only one of the good guys I campaigned hard for senator Tom cotton when I was on the air and are at when I was when he was running from the house of representatives to the Senate and I I hope I believe from what everybody told me that I did an awful lot of good he never even knew it but I was very much pushing people to get out and make sure that they vote for Tom cotton in as a senator and aren't we glad we did when we think about it he went on to say in this interview which are great I you know I said that I think everybody needs to to download this and listen to this interview you can probably find it on YouTube the whole interview by now so make sure that you go there an interview you know Sunday mornings with Marie Barr Bartiromo or and Tom cotton senator Tom cotton you'll get the you want me trouble finding a but make sure that you listen to it you can find the transcript read it it is a pretty amazing interview from what from the point of what Tom cotton said he didn't hold back anything and I sure hope that senator cotton has president trump here but he was talking about the manufacturing of our prescription drugs in China and he said we would give we need to give incentives to companies to build new plants here create more jobs here so we're not dependent on China in a pandemic warmer even any other kind of health concerns he is a proponent of end quote he is a proponent of that we should be giving incentives to corporations we need to go to these pharmaceutical companies and say tell us what you need but you've got to get your production of these prescription drugs out of China out of China is a matter of fact it's got to be some sort of a mandate that we can't do business with them any longer there has to be something that we can pressure them to to move out of China and we need to do that secondly he can can you to talk about so you know what I always say China cares about two things economic dominance in military dominance of the world show he says Sekine second China is continuing even now to take aggressive actions throughout the region to break its commitments it's cracking down on Hong Kong in violation of its commitments to Great Britain when Great Britain returned Hong Kong to China China is taking aggressive actions in the South China Sea and we need to invest more now in our defense industrial base to offset some of the losses we're going to see because of this virus we need more ships we need more submarines we need more bombers we need more fighters the exact kind of systems that will deter China from aggressive action against the United States and our interest in the western Pacific and ultimately all around the globe end quote thank you senator cotton look he also believes that we are going to see a supply chain our problem here in America particularly with our protein products so they are the plants they own they're shutting down or they're buying up meat from the US and we are selling it to them that's fine right now but there's gonna be a time and I would suspect a month from now where we're going to have the prices in the United States going up dramatically on protein is China is doing there Scott great are buying right now just another example according to Tom cotton quote just another example of the way they're trying to take advantage of the crisis they're not resting on our laurels not even now they're not there is a problem because you've heard me talk about it for the last fifteen years how may I don't know how many times how we just continue to let China coming by our hotels by our high rises in New York City in Miami around the country buying farmland buying meat processing plants you heard me tell the story over and over again I had a sit down conversation with the then acting minister of economics for Israel and I also had the same conversation the next day with the past economic minister who was also a very good friend of Benjamin at Netanyahu and was instrumental in getting president and Netanyahu in office his very first time you rent and we had the same conversation with them which sounded like an argument it really was a conversation about one of the things was what what what yes a small country like Israel to turn over all of their dairy to communist China what would you do that and both of the major the same way it must have been the party line they both answered the same way will we still own the callous you will not see the cows don't mean anything it's where the end product is going what the supply chain looks like for the end product who's getting all the yogurt who's getting all the milk who's getting all the cheese who's getting all the cottage cheese and all the other by products that are coming from the Derry who's getting all that China in a heart beat can snap their fingers and say we need more we're taking more and I would suspect right now they're doing that to Israel and I would suspect right now that in Israel were seen dairy products and prices going up created some inflation in the dairy markets why because it doesn't matter that they own the gals and I thought it was lunacy when Israel did this tonight and I told them both so it made no economic sense for a country that small to give that up now I understand that they have a trading Israel talking about has a J. trade agreement with China to a certain extent they they are China has been good trading partners form because China doesn't care about religion they don't care about the god they serve which is the same god we serve they don't care about that China that's your realm they don't care they're not going to hold that against anybody because they don't believe in any of it they all think they think it's a bunch of garbage and it's in your relevant thing it would be like us getting all upset because you know China's flag is right it's kind of irrelevant in the grand scheme of things so they they just don't care so they've always been trading partners that didn't make every trade some sort of political statement but that's going to come back to haunt them as well it's going to continue to come back to haunt us listen I said this over and over again China is our greatest national threat you heard me with Frank Gaffney last week the week before last Friday a week ago talking about China and the threat that they are so look we need to we need to all get on the phone first of all and call the switchboard at their house of representatives if you live in not if you live in in Arkansas all you

"Arkansas senator Tom cotton saying that China will be held accountable for causing the corona virus outbreak to reach the rest of the world including here in the U. S. he's working on legislation that would allow US victims of the virus to sue the Chinese government it comes as the U. S. is conducting a full scale investigation into whether this virus escaped from a lab in Wuhan China something that senator cotton believes happened more from his interview today on fox news with co anchor and Henry yeah let's take a look at that laboratory director he's not just some independent truth seeking scientists they had he is an official in the Chinese Communist Party who is towing the party line we all know and we've known since January that that food market will hand was not the source of this virus Chinese scientists established but more than a third of all the original cases had no contact with the food market the best evidence suggests that the kind of bat from which this virus jump to humans wasn't even present there and then you have all the circumstantial evidence pointing at the labs and will hand they did have those bats they did research John are these corona viruses are diplomats in China were worried about laboratory safety there China has a history of bad laboratory safety all that circumstantial evidence points towards the labs and then of course you have the Chinese cover ups allies the disinformation the intimidation of any potential whistle blowers that's why the most plausible explanation for the origins of this virus is one of those two labs and will hand over another big development this morning is that the government of Australia key ally obviously is joining president trump in saying there should be an independent international investigation of China finally get to the bottom of this what are your thoughts on that and how can it actually be successful well if the director of this Wuhan lab won't even let independent investigators in well and you raise a good point I mean I don't think it an international investigation or heart better hold out much promise for it remember China's are destroyed a lot of the evidence here they have disappeared people who were involved in the matter and even if the virus originated outside of those labs in China if it was naturally occurring maybe another third market let's recall China's treachery in late December or early January they noted despite the lies they tell the world that this virus is highly contagious and transmissible from humans to humans and very deadly they locked down their own country yet they continue to allow international air travel to other countries all around the world that was a deliberate evil act that unleash this pandemic on the world that's why China has to pay the consequences of that from senator Tom cotton on fox news

"And as I said earlier, we're not deploying an aircraft carrier and b fifty two bombers and patriot missile systems in the Middle East to take military action against Iran. We're deploying those. To respond to military action that Iran might take or we hope deter it altogether. Jessica from Twitter, she wants to know why did you send the letter that you did to Iran several years ago? And what did you hope to accomplish by doing so, so Forty-six senators in I in two thousand fifteen released a public letter to the Ayatollah 's, because it was very clear that either secretary, Kerry, wasn't explaining to them, the nature of a treaty and our system of government, or his counterpart, Javad, Zarif was not taking that back to Theron. But we simply made two points that are beyond dispute one. If you wanna lasting and binding agreement with the United States, it needs to be a treaty that Ladimir Putin sought in two thousand ten with the new start nuclear arms, control treaty and to that future, presidents, or future, congresses. If it wasn't a treaty would be able to stop that agreement with stroke of a pen, I would say I was I was proven right? And two thousand eighteen when President Trump did exactly that is America putting enough pressure on Iran. I think everything we've done over the. Last year, especially over the last two months has been moving in the right direction. So for instance, just in the last couple of months, we have designated the shock troops of the Iranian revolution revolution. The revolutionary guard corps as a foreign terrorist organization, exactly what they are. We've also eliminated all the exceptions to the oil export ban which will have a potentially catastrophic effect on the Iranian economy, taking from where it is now a recession into what may be a depression, but also depriving the revolutionary guard corps of hundreds of millions of dollars that they use to support terrorist groups like HAMAs, and Hezbollah and with the thinking of the European Union, they aren't taking the same measures so is America, applying pressure by itself enough. I the America American economy is by far, the largest in the world, Iran's economy by contrast is about the size of Maryland's not many companies, or countries would decide to do business with an economy, the size of Maryland's at risk of doing business with the United. States. I wish the European Union, especially Germany, and France would do more to put pressure on Iran. I think they ultimately will it's just as it often is with those partners, sometimes a long and winding road to get them into the same policy that the United States as Senator Tom cotton is a Republican representing Arkansas.

It's everyone knows mayor Pete isn't really running. There's nobody candidates. There's I'm curious. How many of them are really running for president? Because the vast majority of them running for vice president or less may running for a book like New York Times steel up to Blasi. Oh, what is he like he's going to be like assistant under secretary for education running for president to get reelected as mayor. A kid because. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Because he's term limited now, and they got rid of the exception for Bloomberg. So you want for president maybe that'll be momentum to reverse it.

His sat him down and said, you're an insane person. Do not do this. And they did it anyway. And so I think he really thinks he's going to win. Everyone else though. I'd say twenty out of these candidates now are yeah. Book deal some post in the administration. A B Pia TV talking heads something like beta thinks he can win. But would also be happy being vice president. But I don't think you'll get either beta beta was just like it's basically study abroad for him. Yeah. No. That's the thing. I don't even think Bego cares about winning anything. I just think he likes being a room with people who like him. Yeah. Just sexy to be with like the Des Moines's democratic moms club.
