Julie Kelly: Leaking Info to Corrupt Media Isn't Helping Garland

"Julius is that why you think Garland gave this kind of rushed this is sniveling coward of a human being gave this rushed kind of pathetic presser yesterday where he just scuttled off without even taking a single question They must know this that the narrative they've lost the narrative at this point They've lost the narrative and I'll tell you Dan leaking information to The Washington Post and now just within the past 15 20 minutes to The Wall Street Journal Instead of letting the legal process or doing what they said that they were going to do which is wait until this afternoon to hear from Trump's lawyers and then they would release at their leaking it to the same regime propagandist who obliged the American people about everything related to Donald Trump for 6 years This does nothing to restore their credibility It actually burns it even further because the only people that Americans hate more and trust less than the federal government is the news media And they're giving it to these mainstream outlets who promoted the Russia collusion hoax and every other stupid scheme that the government has put the anti Trump government forces have put together So this is not in for Merrick Garland and Chris ray basically to low key threat in Americans for criticizing this or criticizing the agency That really is certainly not helpful and will infuriate people even more Julia I'm having

"And the thing that i found really interesting was that they said this idea of objectivity in the news only came about as as newspapers began to rely on advertisers. So it is. Capitalist idea is a capitalist incentive to be objective in the news so as not to scare off any potential advertisers. And i thought fascinating and where that has left us today as the news continues to pretend to be objective and how people are starting to really rejects that. Because it's so obvious that the news is not objective. I just thought it was a really fascinating thing to think about it especially interesting considering the necessity of news to look unbiased to be able to sell stuff because otherwise your car dealership printing shop or hat store would be like necessarily supporting the content of the articles that it was you know beside right and so you can see that this idea that this is a neutral location for people to get neutral. Information is ideal for an advertiser. Because you can then say you know. This is a a newspaper of record or of respectable level of whatever and by our hats. It's i think that's really fascinating. That's a really fascinating history that that is quite instructive. Considering the advertising advertising has fallen through the floor in the In the media industry in canada. And so what does that mean for us. Moving forward exactly maybe. Maybe this is something that should be abandoned. The idea that all news is objective. Because we know that it ain't anyway. I thought you might know. I love that. That's awesome thank you for that. I got more thank yous to give. There's a whole bunch of folks that we have to say. Thanks to this week and so to everybody.

The land hadn't checked with his colleagues before he said this in court. He hadn't been briefed to say it. He hadn't even really been prepared to say it. But in the heat of the moment in court in front of a judge it just came out truthfully. I'm not sure anybody at that moment. Including myself understood. Just how big undertaking. Lee is a lawyer. He works for the aclu the american civil liberties union. He's worked for nearly thirty years. He's now deputy director of the immigration program and when he made this promise he was in a court in san diego. It's twenty eighteen.

Away lee aclu. You were in court fighting to reunite this one mother with her child but they will also using this one case as pov something bigger to stop the trump administration's practice of separating children and parents at the border because by this point in two thousand eighteen. The aclu knew that this was happening on a larger scale though. The trump government wasn't admitting it as news of more and more cases began to reach them. The aclu started to add other separated families to this lawsuit building. A class action. At first they were talking about four hundred children who had been separated but then that number grew and grew. I don't think at that moment. If you said to me for years later five years later will you still be looking for families. Will you have had to go to central america to look for families i would have had any conception of that and also had no idea who would be willing to help us so in our mind we were going to be looking for roughly four hundred plus families. It turned out that we've been looking for thousands soon off to knee had promised to find an reunite. Those families in court. The number grew again to seven hundred seven hundred children taken from their parents at the us border and put into a holding facilities and then it grew again off to the trump administration revealed that the number was actually in the thousands. Two thousand eight hundred. They admitted in court since then the total number of children actually separated by the trump administration has grown to over five thousand five hundred children of all ages including still breastfeeding infants. The youngest just four months old and so lee and the aclu with a coalition of partners embarked on a giant piece of detective. Work to find. The parents of children separated and detained the young victims of america's so-called zero tolerance policy. I'm becky comings. And you're listening to the slow newscast.

Ron dutch is head of special projects at the wickham media foundation. The nonprofit that owns and operates wikipedia denny. Thanks very much and thank you for having me. Here's another impact of the pandemic authoritarianism and extremism seemed to be surging across the globe. Luke cooper has been tracking this. He's an associate researcher. The london school of economics and the author of a new book called authoritarian contagion. He joins us from london to be clear. Luke your book is not about disease contagion but contagion as a metaphor for how authoritarianism spreads so. Let's get meta here. How has authoritarianism been on the rise through this highly contagious disease cove nineteen. Yeah absolutely inc. They replicate in very different ways. I mean i thought. I think the current authoritarianism as phenomena which is almost universally. Close the weld. It does pre exist corona virus and in some ways the jury still out on how exactly this is going to impact it. The pandemic is still going on and the mix of policies that you've seen from different governments who live the world. We identify one clear case. That authoritarianism is green lighted by the coin of rbis pandemic or it's been thrown into decline. It's a much more variable a mix so covet. Nineteen is being a really kind of complicated issue for the visable authoritarianism. It's still not quite clear. How exactly it will play out. So i want to get to china but maybe you can give me an example. The kind of policy just talked about that. You believe could have accelerated authoritarianism. The kind of policy around covert say. This does normalize level of state intervention into people's individual personal liberties deeply-felt personal liberties. The is clearly historically. I think unprecedented in many societies. Not to say out is something that we should be concerned about to some degree. I think is necessary to have that attempt to suppress the virus or was necessary before that we're vaccines and but we should be cautious around. We've introducing mechanisms that way introduced in an exceptional environment that then become semi permanent. Yes so a lot of things. Converging authoritarianism disease privacy issues. Let me just ask you what you see is the risk of obligatory vaccine passports in this discussion. I suppose what the questions that we need to ask about. Is the way i would frame response. So who controls the information. How is it allowed to be used. What clinton democratic scrutiny to citizens have and what kind of rights as individuals citizens have a how their information is used. So i would guess basically counsel caution on vaccine paul sports than say a flat and categorical not to them. So look if you look at china. The desk the reported ones anyway or among the lowest in the world per capita we know. China is an authoritarian state. But are those low numbers the result of authoritarianism or simply good governance. I think used that very strong institutional structures that they've built extremely effectively to protect public health. And say did they're very totalitarian more to help them. Yes i think it probably did because when you say to citizens in hand and the government says to them you can't leave your house tool and we're going to monitor this on a street by street level with local teams that something it in a totalitarian society is much more culturally acceptable to the population than it would be in a democratic society so i would be very cautious about upholding china as a model to the of course there is something that we can not any from china will say am democratic societies like taiwan south korea. Australia new zealand that at least in the first phase of the pandemic were much more effective at suppressing the virus. I'm speaking with researcher. Luke cooper at the london school of economics about the rise of authoritarianism during the pandemic. is there a country. Luke that you've seen has clearly become more authoritarian during the pandemic. i think the huge power. That's emma ban. A hungry has given gave to himself under. The auspices of corona virus is something we should be worried about. But to be honest he was looking for any opportunity to give himself and will power is a very very authoritarian government. I mean it does show the slippery slope of where we are in this moment. Where exactly would you say this leaves. Democracy can be restored in some of the places where it seems to be retreating. Yeah well let's spies in some ways you guys in across the pond all the big test question. The case study that everyone is looking at. And i think that there were features of the new authoritarianism. The donald trump's government in the us really closely encapsulated. I want to the biden administration is now tossed with doing is to try to say well look. Can we protect american democracy from this ongoing threat. On what's the best way to do that. And i think in some ways will looking at the united states to see whether the social justice agenda the economic agenda be strong enough that it really builds the legitimacy of the democratic project as it were so what should stronger democracies like the us and others be doing to empower democratic values around the world. It sounds like that's where the hopeless. Yeah i think in some ways it is. We're example the proposal that they've made at the world trade organization to suspend patents on corona virus vaccines. I think that's hugely important. Because democracy is going to mean anything has to be to deliver social justice and public health for the populations of the entire weld on a universal basis. And at the moment we have a terrible vaccine apartheid's situation where most of the wealthy weld is the vaccinated all going to be back stated quite soon and the poorest counties in the world on vaccinated so i very much welcome biden coming behind people's vaccine but those are the kinds of policies. The i would like to see democrats are putting forward. So the people's vaccine does that in some way promote obligatory vaccination and is that in line with values of democracy like individual freedom. I'm not keen on the idea of obligatory vaccination. I'm not sure about it. Ethically and i'm not sure about it practically the so if you choose not to be back stated unfortunately it's not just a personal choice because you're making it more likely that the virus was spread so your personal choice does affect other people so it's not an easy easy issue and I don't think the people's maxine promotes obligatory backs nation is roth Giving everyone in the world the opportunity to have at the back station. And that's the crucial..

That is a Bloomberg business Flash. I'm Nathan Hager, Paul, Matt. Nathan Hager, Thank you so much. We appreciate that. Today's big take From Bloomberg News an exclusive interview with the embattled president of Venezuela after years of harsh sanctions from the Trump administration. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro says he sees no sign of policy changes from the Biden administration, but he believes a win win relationship between the two nations is still possible. Maduro spoke exclusively with Bloomberg's Erik Schatzker. They conducted the interview in Caracas entirely in Spanish, so we'll be hearing it through an interpreter, along with Eric translating his side of the conversation. Let's listen to now. Yo Creo que lessons. I believe that the sanctions are immoral. That's the first thing they are cruel, very cruel for a country And I think that at a round table of conversation, even if it's private, the United States of America, the Biden administration should accept it as such, should see it as such. And the sanctions are transformed as the human rights organization, says the special reporter that came to Venezuela for the matter of the sanctions. The sanctions are transformed into a great violation of the human rights of the Venezuelan men and women. Furthermore, not only is it a cruel mechanism that causes suffering to the people, but it's also a failed mechanism failed because all the sanctions And an extremist and irrational manner were applied by the trump government against Venezuela for a change of regime. And they didn't achieve it. Nor are they going to achieve it, so the sanctions should be recognized as illegal, irrational extremist cruel and they should be lifted. So opinion, senor Presidente Olivia s locked in your opinion, Mr President, but it's still US policy, and it seems to me the US won't change its policy without a change in positions. Then it's a closed game, Eric because we have our principles, our Constitution we have the right to life to economic freedom to commercial freedom. Venezuela and the whole world has the right to commercial freedom. There can't be one country because of the control of the currency and of the banking system imposes to the rest of the countries of the world. What should happen in their country at a political level who should govern or who shouldn't govern? If that was established, Eric it would simply be the end of the United Nations system. The end of the international law. No, the United States must recognize that an international law exists that a multi polar world exists that another world exists. And furthermore, it must recognize sooner than later than what they are doing with Venezuela is a brutality only comparable to the Vietnam War and the massacre that they committed against the people of Vietnam. They're committing an economic massacre. Venezuela has the right to freedom to produce oil to sell it to obtain profits to fulfill its in International obligations to maintain the life of the people. Venezuela has the right to produce gold and sell it. Why aren't we going to have the right to do that?.

"Say it again and again knowledge that he made it but i think it perfectly described the situation with the president and his behavior around this Virus that killed six hundred thousand americans could the same charge be leveled. How fox news handled the chrome bars and something. I wrestled with because you can't. You can't look at Let's let's take. Let's take a record of the deaths. He can't point to a person's name and say well. That person was a real fox news junkie. So it's no wonder they were misinformed. It's no wonder they didn't believe the virus was serious and and that's why they died. I think that that you can't say that that's not fair. It's not it's not ethical but it is clear that that fox's downplayed. The pandemic did affect its audience and its audience included trump the trump white house so it did affect that trump government's response to the pandemic and. That's that's a really sad example of the vicious cycle that existed between government and tv between twenty seventeen and twenty twenty one. A lot of critics feel like the network has blood on its hands but at the same time. There was a lawsuit. There was attempted against fox for that very reason and it got laughed out of court. So you comes down to this question of. How do you prove it. How do you measure it. I don't think you can. But i think we have recognized that downplaying the pandemic downplaying the riott lying about the election. All of these narratives have had consequences. There has to be a reckoning. Well as you started mentioning Dr fauci at the beginning of this whole thing and and tucker carlson last night was again on fao saying disqualified himself as a scientists and going online on. But this does continue to. He's questioning mass now. Still mean this is crossing question vouches authority on mask center. This does still impact americans response to the vaccine. It does it does to this day. Because all of those seeds were planted in february march of twenty and twenty and then they couldn't be dug up once they were planted. They affected everything sense that the new narrative fallacy is really this i i would a couple as one. It's an attempt to shift all the blame for anything wrong onto onto valgy and thus Absolve trump of his mistakes his seven so partly. I think that's what's going on..

"I'm here with jay rosen from nyu esteemed professor of journalism. Who's been coming on this show every year since <hes>. Since the beginning of the trump administration to talk about the way the press grappling with the very unique problem of donald j trump <hes>. And every year we sort start off by asking you for great jay <hes>. These are unusual times unusual circumstances. How do you think the american press has handled the trump era. Well i think where the problem of covering trump has intersected with existing practice in the press as for example with investigating his tax returns. When he doesn't want to release his tax returns. The press has done pretty good. I would give it a b. b. plus sometimes even in a minus but we're covering trump has required breaking from routine and inventing new practices. I would give the american press. Sierra de with the exception of that week or so after the election. I think something and we saw american journalists really fighting for democracy as they also reported. The story of what trump was trying to do in disputing the election. I think that was a special kind of like interval there. Where a kind of breakthrough was was made. And then i would add everything involving the coverage of jared and. Ivanka is s in my booze. That was a total embarrassing failure from beginning to end and it continued right up to the very end where a couple of days ago. Ivanka was said to be trying to mitigate the problems of the riott for i in some way which was totally unrest by. Anyway that's a total bomb out. So i think you've been pretty consistent throughout the years and you and i both agree that the us mainstream press has done a great job when it comes to flexing investigative muscles <hes>. Great reporting from the times and the journal and the post in particular propublica. I would argue that for a large swath of population. They've done a very decent job of covering the trump administration in general. There's lots of easily accessible reporting that gave you a pretty good idea what was happening within the trump administration when we started off. We were very worried that he was gonna freeze out the press and deny them access and and and it turns out. He couldn't shut up he was always talking and even when he wasn't officially talk. You they weren't leaks coming out of the white house. Geysers full of information and and you. We can argue about framing. But there is just a ton of information out there if you wanted to access it as you're if you're sort of mainstream news consumer i think we heard and learned about what was going on in the trump white house through the efforts of the washington press. And so what you're talking about is something that the complaint we've been hearing from lots of people <hes>. You often hear on twitter <hes>. i don't mean to diminish it that way. It's it's i think it's talking about sort of framing of news and how you're engaging with <hes>. Sort of you've got you've got the american press is used to doing. I'm going to ask. Republicans and democrats. We're gonna ask them for. Both their opinions will meet somewhere in the middle. We've done our job and if you do that with the trump administration you've done even worst job of of failing than you normally would because they don't exist on on any sort of plane of reality so you can't go ask someone the trump administration what they think about something because they'll tell you something totally nonsensical or doesn't have to do with even what's happening in their administration in my summing-up your complaint correctly. I'm well no. I am not sure. I think the the biggest challenge for the american press has been how to stand up for american democracy in a more vigorous way when it is under threat from the president of the united states which is a situation that nobody in the washington press ever thought they would be in and i think it took way too long but as i said earlier at the very end they learned how to do that but it took too long because it involves breaking routines coming up with new practices and sort of shrugging off old limitations and that was really hard. And there's a related problem of what critics <hes> call normalization of trump. I think that's an area where the journalists are totally baffled by that criticism. They don't accept it. They think silly they make fun of it. Now they're so sick of hearing that that they've kinda shut it out but there's something to it and i think journalists could have been much more supple in understanding what people mean by normalization <hes>. So something to talk about. That's another part of of my critique so those are the those are two areas where i think the press didn't do as good a job as it should have and in the background of that as a as another fact. This is not something that i assign responsibility to journalists for but there was the whole portion of the country that was not only not listening to journalism and journalists but within way actively organized against them and that was a huge part of the trump years as well yeah and spoiler. That's that's where i end up at the end of this. Which is that. I think you and i can debate. How well the american mainstream american press did but if a huge swath of the country is actively not listening to them than we have problems that we can't fix with better reporting better framing. Let's we we. We can get that discussion. Let's talk about what standing up for democracy means in the frame of sort of conventional mainstream press. What what what did you want them to do. And what did they finally do in november. That made you happy well. They after the election. They finally realized if he succeeds at claiming this thing was stolen the entire <unk>. Democracy could fall apart and that we were much closer to like zien government by consent than anybody ever imagined and therefore they had to say the most straightforward way that is completely untrue. this argument has no validity. He's simply trying to win where he lost. And and they became kind of not self-righteous but righteous about defending american democracy. And i think that could have started to happen much earlier. Like it's not that they didn't write about these things. But i don't think that at the sense of urgency came through so the way i tried to describe this in my writing was you can't keep from getting blown away by the trump agenda until you have an agenda of your own and something to defend. And that's what i wanted to see happen earlier and finally did give me an example. What would have liked prior to the tempted election. Overturning can give me an example. The last four years where he went there to stand up and say enough or this is not so in a way that they weren't. I think the the <hes>. Tracking the story of of the republican party becoming a counter majoritarian or anti voting party. And the way that's been built into the structure of the republican party could have been appointed emphasis on the way that making it. More difficult to vote is aligned with making it more difficult to understand what the party is really four <hes>. Is is part of it when the in the post office <hes> came that was reported but it but again that was the case where i thought journalists should should be in a sense set against that the crisis in american democracy building for a long time and it took a long time to get the press to kinda like shift over into crisis mode even though the signs were very clear <hes> and they finally did and that's good but i felt that should have come much earlier even though those stories were written about <hes>. And i felt that they should <hes>. And in the white house briefing from the beginning and ch- and switchover to hide in reporting rather than try and make something of this institution that they clearly that the trump government had clearly broken on purpose and turned that whole confrontation into a different purpose entirely which was to display journalists as hate objects and whip up the base to reject everything that the press does. I felt that it that they should have actually gotten out of the air from the very beginning because it was clear how they were going to be used as props. Four trumps hate campaign. So those are the kinds of things that i mean.

"Me now to talk about the latest on Florida's vaccine distribution efforts, joined by state government reporter from the Tampa Bay Times. Kirby Wilson, who's been doing a great job covering everything that's been taking place, including Ah, lot of our top state officials who are in charge of overseeing the distribution of this vaccine throughout the state. Kirby Thanks so much for taking a few minutes to talk to US and And from what I've seen from afar and and there's been a lot of other news that has distracted me from following. This is closely as I would've liked over the past week. But from what I've seen, Florida's seems to be doing a decent job of distributing the vaccine. Not the best, but certainly not as bad as some other states where they're literally wasting vaccine vials. What have you seen so far in your coverage? Of how things have gone up to this point. Well, thanks so much for having me and I can't imagine what other news you're talking about other than the vaccine distribution, But no, you're I think you're dead on the numbers say at least that Florida is, uh, pretty much middle of the pack in terms of the percentage of the population. That's been vaccinated. Governor Romney, Santis often points out that Florida has a pretty high share of the people who have been vaccinated who are over 65. I think more than half of the people now and I think we're over three quarters of a million people who've been vaccinated are over 65, which is a staff that he likes to point out. Um, but I would say the Issues that have come with the vaccine distribution have less to do with actually getting shots and people's arms and more to do with what the state has sort of publicized on what I mean by that is that Governor Romney Santis in a couple days before Christmas, put out an executive order that said. Any one of these over 65 is eligible to get the vaccine. But he did that before the state had Any significant vaccine allocations from the federal government. We've only had a few 100,000 case. A few 100,000 shots delivered us. And so if anything, that criticism is that you He over promised, which has led to a surge of every senior citizen thinking. Oh, well, let me go get let me get vaccinated, and then they sign up and there's way too much demand and people get busy single on the phone and they get You know, they get clogged online portals. I'm so it's more of a style thing over substance. At this point. Have you seen a difference in how the state has handled Their efforts to distribute the vaccine and actually give the vaccine to Floridians and how the partnerships with the private sector, including a company like Publix have worked. So far, the state has really delegated a lot of those efforts to you know, if not private sector actors. At least third party actors CVS Walgreens Have done that. You know the system living facilities public says he mentioned on then hospitals have largely been in charge of vaccinating everyone else. So there are a few state run sites like the one in In South Florida. I don't think there's been any. I don't think those have run any worse than any others, but I don't think they've been the focus of the state's effort either. Now Jared Moskowitz, who is the head of Florida's Division of emergency management, and he's somebody who I've certainly been impressed with throughout the course of this pandemic. He spoke at a House committee meeting. And you reported on this, And he really explained where the problem seems to be coming not so much at the state level, but it's really the federal level and just a lack of communication. That's right. I mean, from what he said The federal government only communicates the state allocation six days in advance, so they learned on Tuesday what they're going to get Next week, which means that they don't have they don't have the bandwidth toe tell people sign up for a shot will give it to you in three weeks, which has led to some of the logjam you've seen locally with sign up portals. And beyond that, it's not just the statements, frustrated local hospitals and frustrated because they don't know how much of the vaccine that they're distributed that they can give out right away or how much they might have to save for a second dose. Um on and I thought it was noteworthy that we saw Moskowitz. Um, uh Levy that kind of criticism because he was a Democratic representative who governor the Santis surprise some people by choosing to be ahead of that. That post and so he's been more critical of the federal government under President Trump government. Santos has been less critical of that effort, although to be fair, I don't know if it's all political because governor dissented. I think it's fair to say his job is to tell people what and its people who work for him like Jared Moscow, it's his job to tell to say exactly how s O. The logistics are more of a frustration for somebody like Jared Moskowitz. Where is Governor De Santis. It is sort of his job to be the public face of the upper and to go around and say, Look, we have Publix and you could go to Publix now, and anyone is over 65 to get the shot. So you know it's reasonable that there be a difference in the approach of how that criticism goes. But given the partisan divisions that has to be noted, too Read a memorandum from a major health care system here in the state of Florida earlier today, and they laid out there when it comes to scheduling the first vaccines for People who would be eligible to get them. They've had to pause it because they need more information from the state, and they don't know what the supply is going to be like, and it sounds like State doesn't really have an answer for them because they're waiting on the federal government to tell them when the state's going to get more. I think that's right. I think the state could have done a better job of communicating with providers. The big change in their plan or the big the big headline, sort of splash. She we're gonna let everyone over 65 sign up. Immediately. Florida had a much bigger pool of potential coded vaccine recipients than a lot of other states, which led to a high demand, which led to some of the chaos. But medically, I think there's plenty of you could argue that was a sound decision because, as governor Sanders points out, people over 65 are far more likely to suffer the worst effects of this disease, then Even frontline health care workers who are younger than that, But right like I think it, Z Almost certainly all at this point that there isn't federal supply and in the feds, they're not communicating with the state on what the next week's supply might be or or what the weeks in advance supply might be. I'm joined by Kirby Wilson, State government reporter for the Tampa Bay Times, and we're talking about Florida's distribution of covert 19 vaccines and You laid out in Twitter thread that I caught when it came to some of what Jared Moskowitz had to say again. The director of Florida's division of emergency management I thought he made a really important point. There is a plan that they have in terms of how to do this and how to distribute the vaccines, but When there's only six days notice. It's really difficult to make it all work. It's it's just not something that can come together that easily and that quickly. That's right. I mean, I think I do think that there could have been better communication among state officials to lay out who what actors are getting the vaccine and, for example, You know, Director Moskowitz said today that they're going to communicate exactly what each county's vaccine allocation is because they're allocating it based on Uh, the county's sheriff's 55 overpopulation. So, for instance, with for a batch of 250,000 doses, which which is about we've been getting from the feds every week. Um, uh, Miami Dade County, the largest county in Florida, gets about 22,000 shots, which is not nearly enough to cover Elderly population in any kind of timely fashion. But that's that that, for example, that's just a metric that he did. That's why her Nando County was part of that public's rollout that initial rollout there. Her Nando County has a high number of seniors over the age of 65..

"Left in the Trump presidency, and it doesn't look like it's going to go quietly. Someone who told us that I think is almost his exact words where it will end, But it's not going to end well or it won't end It won't end pretty. He didn't say it like that. But he he indicated, was gonna be a bumpy landing is a Pulitzer Prize winner. He visits with us on Tuesdays, four times. Best selling author, You know so much about Trump. Government law taxes and now He really drills down on this bloody coup attempt. He's David Cay Johnston. Hi, David. Well, hi, Mark, and the phrase was it will end badly. I didn't know the details, but I said it would end badly and it would end in violence and That's what Yeah, and then this latest piece you did and I love d c report dot organ. I'm not just saying that because David's here I like the fact that they cover a lot of things that you don't see covered on many other websites, among them the environment, but but that's just for starters. But now we turn to you know the politics and this this bloody coup attempt and your latest piece. Make no mistake. The terrorists were there to kill pence. Pelosi, someone and then you documented and you go on to documented very clearly Go into that forest, please. Well, the videotapes that I reviewed and Internet traffic I have been looking at made it clear that this was their purpose. One point you had, uh These terrorists. They're domestic terrorists and insurgents who want to overthrow our government screaming. Bring us Pelosi. You had a member of Congress, the freshman representative Bo Burt, of Lauren Gilbert from Colorado. Who's the one who insists you should be allowed to carry her Glock when she is in Congress? Sending out a text message about the whereabouts of the speaker when she was being hunted by these people since my piece ran two things have happened. Um I said that there were the Internet traffic indicated there will be violence between now and Inauguration Day and the FBI put out a bulletin that came became public after my piece ran confirming that And now The Washington Post in our two ago of reported that the FBI had, uh, decided written a report days ago, saying that there would be warfare. At the Capitol. Yeah, this is funny. I was going to get to this day, but I I because David is right. I mean, just as you have suggested it sort of reminiscent of 9 11, but it's even more nakedly clear that they knew about this And that really provokes a question, Which is then why wasn't more done to make this Sacred area on a sacred day, more Impenetrable. This is a recurring problem in this country. Tim Weiners book a legacy of actions about the CIA shows that again and again and again in the On an international level. This problem of knowing and not acting has come up the 9 11. You know, we knew there were FBI officers agents who were trying to get their bosses to pay attention to things and they weren't getting anywhere. But, you know Is also an important element in this. There were polls done right after the November 3 election that showed basically everybody accepted the outcome of the election, and then Trump started screaming. The election was stolen part of his political vandalism. Now you have this significant number of people who say otherwise, including 147, members of Congress and six or depending on the boat. Seven senators Who wouldn't confirm the election of Joe Biden, even though there is zero credible evidence that the election was stolen or the Trump won in a landslide, and by the way, a DC report we've been writing about voting machines go to our website put in the word Greene with an E at the end, and Allison Greene's pieces we have more coming. Critically examining that the voting machine business something I've been on this far back in 1990. Um, because there are problems with voting machines. But the hand counting of ballots in Georgia, they recounted $5 million by hand, either two or three times show. Trump's claims are just delusional. And yet we have members of Congress who are insisting that that's the case. So then we have one very important development Park. This is a country dominated by corporations. The rules that we have allowed to rise up for corporations, their economic power their financing of politicians. Corporations are the dominant structure in America, especially the top 3000 companies that have assets of over a quarter of a billion dollars. And you're seeing those companies now turn on Trump and turn on those Republicans who wouldn't certify Joe Biden selection. And why are they doing this? In fact, if they're run by some socialist come all I mean these air corporations that are profit oriented enterprises. It's because the leaders of those companies recognize that if this revolution succeeds, They lose all their power influence that they become vassals of a fascist state that will make them do what it wants, rather than being free to pursue their profits, somebody or whatever, you know, rules and regulations that we have. This is a very important development to see Comcast, 18 T, United Airlines and others all saying, No, you have to respect our democracy is a really important development, especially given the fact that these corporations over while Knowingly favor in their donations. Republicans This is a great take. And I like that You lay it out there the way you do, because the fix is in always. It's always going to go toward the plutocracy that is there. But I would suggest that you stated so well, which is the steak is so great for them, and I would add, they got what they wanted from this administration. They got a Supreme Court, which is corporate friendly. I mean, business friendly, anti regulatory anti worker and they got a lot of the regulations lifted by the various agencies that they felt were sort of income. Bring them in the past. In other words, the cake is baked for them, you know, bring on the next guy. On and certainly in the as there is smoke beginning to clear they don't want to. They don't want the trump stink on them. It wouldn't seem either. Yeah, And I mean, I think that at this point, if you're not worried of you, you're not paying close attention. There is going to be more violence. The FBI says that all 50 state capitals, the building ol and the U..

"Um, And I think it's a bit on Amazon Prime. Didn't you say that Netflix picks it up, too? But no, no, I said quick. Didn't pick it up. It took. It took the distributor almost a year. Teofilo and anybody that would would show it because they were so I think they were just so afraid of the how the Saudi government would react. Yeah, probably. And then and then the trump government, too. Don't you know Trump is in this too, and he's just course he is. He's just a jerk and everything coming in, and even some worse. Jared and bin Salman were such good friends. Oh, yeah, yeah, they that that's that's gone into slightly, but, uh, yeah, It's uh It's zah great documentary. It's one of the best of the year. If it's actually it probably would have gone on my top 10 if I had seen it earlier, which is which is which is another reason why top 10 lists are so silly really meaningless. Really. They are. They're they're just lift. Now, only one way. And then how do you compare? You know? How do you compare? Like? I don't know. Sound of music to the dissident. I mean, you can You know what? There's no comparison? Of course. But you know what? Yeah, of course. Thank you, Paul. But the thing is, I just, you know, I um uh you know, I I I I lost my train of thought. I totally lost my train of thought because I interrupted, you know, that's okay. I'll think about it. You know, as much as my grandmother used to say to me when I would do that, she would say, Well, it must have been Why, if you focus on and I really I would challenge your ad takes. What? How on God's green Earth? Did you conclude that anybody say that That's so funny? Yeah, she's to say what must have been alive, said Okay, right? Whatever, Gramma. OK, so that's a that's a definite Let's see it. That's an Amazon prime, which means you have to pay for it. Unfortunately, I can't believe first they make you pay for Amazon Prime and then they make you pay for the movies. Well, you know if you can wait like a few weeks what usually after they get some initial, you know bucks for it, then they usually just becomes a part of your subscription, So people want to wait for a couple weeks, but it's also a good movie. It's a good cause. Really. Really? It's a good cause to contribute people. Yeah, Yeah, absolutely. You pick one now, Mimi Little hobbit pieces of a woman to go to Netflix. Speaking of dismemberment from dismemberment to pieces. Oh, you're good. It took me. It took me like about five seconds to get that piece Is this from Male dismemberment two pieces of a woman. Yeah, Okay. And this? This is another one of those woman movies that we've been talking about. There was I'm your woman member that promising young woman anyway. This is a very interesting drumming and hits Netflix today and I'll tell you why. It's interesting for one. It's one of the most unusual portrait of Unexpressed repressed grief that I have ever seen in the cinema. And I'll explain that. What makes it doubly interesting is how it puts the viewer right in the forefront of the characters own grief by putting you the viewer. Actually, through the traumatic experience of the main characters in real time on screen. In other words, the movie begin. The movie actually begins with this extended sequence in real time involving childbirth, and that's all I really want to say in terms of plot because a lot of this has to be discovered is this movie goes along, but it's a harrowing and intense sequence. And as I mentioned, it's done, and it's shown in real time so because the audience is put through the mill, the six Periods were right there in the room with this couple and midwife, the couple's play by Shyla buff and Vanessa Kirby and the midwife has played by Molly Parker, all of whom are really excellent. This movie. We can then emotionally relate that much more and sympathize and empathize that much more with the emotional aftermath and anguish of this event and how these characters including the mother, Of the woman giving childbirth just brilliantly played by Ellen burst, and I mean she's so always so good. She gets better. She ages anyway, but way get to empathize with them in their processing of this experience. So this is a movie about a family dealing with grief and inconsolable loss and how it affects them after the fact in their marriage and their professional lives and their friendships, and it is just it's powerful. It's based on a play that the screenwriter Kata Weber Adapted for the screen, and the opening is very strong stuff. But if you stick with the film and you brave your way through that sequence, you'll be rewarded with an impressive and and memorable, very memorable drama. I keep thinking about it. I saw it weeks ago on it leaves you thinking as well because of the issues that it brings up and emotionally rewarded as well. It's called pieces of a woman. Okay, But here's the thing about that is we're really upset this week. It's been a hard hard wheat him. I don't know if you were listening earlier pen and I got a big fight on there anyway. Yeah, fight all the time. Well, you know, it's funny when you sent me the email and you said we really need to be. You know, we need an uplift this week. I looked at the movies that I saw him. I thought none of these really are uplifting. If anything, they're you know, they're kind of depressed. Well, no, I actually didn't find any of them Depressing just but most of them were pretty hard hitting. And yet there's this meeting is good. And normally, you know, I'm good with that. But I'll tell you what I'm gonna do. We're gonna take a break. Comeback. Apollinaire gonna put our heads together and not fight and we are going to think of a really good movie that can be uplifting. That's going to make people happy, and you do the same thing to him. Okay. All right. All right. See, that's the hard It's e Give assignments that are easy to accomplish. Yeah, All right.

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

The Big Story

Will a Universal Basic Income finally get a real shot?

"You can say one thing for the current crisis. It's given us a chance to try a lot of things that we might never have had the will to do otherwise I amongst those just giving people money okay not everyone but millions and millions of people in Canada and not forever but at least for a few months and this isn't a new idea. It's been around in some form or another for decades. You probably know it as universal basic income and you might associate it with the most progressive voices come the liberal side of the spectrum and you may also associate the opposition to it with complaints of lazy people want free cash instead of working but despite having a long history as a potential way to ease poverty and improve health. This has never been tried on a large scale or for a long time. So the people arguing on either side of it have never had enough evidence to prove their point. So it's been a political football until like with so many things. These days along came the virus and now getting money to people who need it quickly is absolutely essential governments around the world even the most conservative of them have done that and those who support or oppose that kind of policy have mostly agreed on the need for it. It's what happens next. And what we learned from that will determine if we finally give a universal basic income. A real shot. So we'll explain history of the policy small tests that we've seen on it be political behind it and whether or not it will stick around when we get out of this current mass. And we'll do that as soon as Claire gives the details on this current mess cargill is dealing with the outbreak at one of its meat processing plants. This one isn't Schambori Quebec southeast of Montreal. Sixty four workers have tested positive. There cargill had another outbreak a few weeks ago at a beef packing plant in high river. Alberta in that outbreak more than nine hundred workers tested positive. It reopened last week after a two-week shutdown also in Quebec schools in the western part of the province are set to reopen today but attendance is optional. Desks will be spaced apart. And there can be no more than fifteen kids in a classroom at a time. Ontario reported the lowest number of cases of Cova nineteen for the province on Sunday since March. Two hundred ninety four new cases. And this comes. The province reopens Provincial Parks and Conservation Areas. Although camping is still not allowed and things like beaches playgrounds and public washrooms are still off limits. And lastly schedule and is suspending the sale of alcohol in the Northern Community of La Lush to help control the spread of cove in nineteen. The alcohol store will be closed for two weeks. To prevent people from gathering. There will be support for those at risk of alcohol withdrawal as of Sunday evening. Sixty eight thousand eight hundred and forty eight cases of covert nineteen in Canada with four thousand nine hundred and seventy deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings. This is the big story Max. Faucet is a writer and a reporter for many publications including on this project for the Walrus. Hey Max he joined our. I'm doing as well as can be expected. Which is how everybody should hopefully answer that question. These days you start by defining What is a universal basic income Broad is that term. And what does it mean? Sure so I mean you know this is an idea that's been around for some time now and and there can be competing definitions and I suspect. We'll get into that in a second but the one that I adhere to the one that you know certainly I informed Andrew Yang's campaign in the United States and that has been informing most of the conversation about UBA. Right now is It has three conditions it's automatic. It's unconditional in its non-withdrawal. So basically that means it comes every month doesn't matter who you are you get it. You could be making a lot of money or a little money and you get it. And then it's non withdraw so It's not means tested. So it doesn't get clawed back you know as you as you make more money you know. There's much conversation on you know econ twitter about various amendments and adjustments to that formula. But I think that's a good way to think about it. Can you give me a little history of it? You mentioned it's been around for a long time Has it been tried for real anywhere where to come from that? Depends on your definition of for real right. I think people look at the idea of giving people money from the government. And they think well this must be a left-wing idea but actually the first real experiments with it happened in the nineteen sixties and early nineteen seventies and it was driven by a Richard Nixon and Milton Friedman. Who is the father of supply-side economics? Yeah they saw it as a way to replace the welfare system and so they their idea of a basic income is not quite the way I just defined it. It was something called a negative income tax. And so let me. Just get a tiny bit. Wonka share the way it worked in their conception is basically they would give people a percentage of the difference between their income and defined income cutoff or like the point where they start paying income taxes so if they set the cutoff at let's say forty thousand dollars and the negative income tax percentage was fifty percent. Someone who made twenty thousand dollars a year would get ten thousand dollars from the government. They made thirty five thousand they would get two thousand and from the government so is this sort of sliding scale where topped you up up until a certain point and then it went away right. They cancelled it in one thousand nine hundred and you know the the the Reagan era kind of buried it under under Nixon's legacy in Canada. Did something called the men come experiment? Which was the Manitoba Basic Income Experiment? That was more that was closer to the basic income that that I described earlier in the one that a lot of people are talking about right now so that says that gave thirteen hundred urban and rural families in Winnipeg and don't Fan Manitoba with incomes below. Thirteen thousand dollars a year back then money. But by the time that the data was collected in nineteen seventy eight so they ran up from seventy five to seventy eight. The Canadian government kind of lost interest in and they cancelled the project. So we've had these these aborted attempts to gather a sample and it hasn't really provided any conclusive evidence In the in the American one. There's some evidence that it that it you know Negatively impacted people's willingness to go to work in the Canadian won the data suggested otherwise. But there just wasn't enough data to conclusively determine the impact of giving people money on their both on their willingness to work and on on the outcomes that the government's wanted to test. Which is you know better. Health Outcomes Better Labor outcomes better social outcomes so you know the jury was still out right. Will what kind of a sample size and study length? Would you even need to determine that because again we had one or at least something like one here in Ontario Under Kathleen Wynne. A few years ago and the next government came to power and it was immediately phased out. So you know. I don't think we got more than two or three years out of that either. So what kind of scale are we talking about? Yeah I mean to make it work. You would needs multiple cities multiple tests populations and a long duration of study. This is this is a a bold policy intervention but you need to be able to control for extenuating circumstances and factors the Ontario project. Was it had some really promising results. As it turned out there was a study group at McMaster that basically interviewed the people that participated in the program. Some of the data they had eighty percent of of people reporting better health outcomes. They were using less tobacco drinking. Less eighty-three percent said they had better mental health. They were feeling less stressed. They had a better diet And there was even interesting. Data around better labor market outcomes people were basically using the minimum income the guaranteed income to improve their jobs to look for better job. So it's disappointing that the government scrapped it after basically what amounted to one year and left us in the same spot that we've sort of always been with these things where we just don't have enough data for either side to conclusively prove that their argument is right and you know maybe not maybe now is the opportunity to kind of walk in that that longer sample size but you know the problem here is that. It's always tempting for governments to to start these programs and then abandon them or different governments to come in and cancel them. You'd need some sort of agreement by all parties that they're going to let this run. Its course and we haven't really seen that yet. So you mentioned that it's seen mostly now at least as a left-wing idea might have begun under Nixon. But certainly I think that's how most listeners would frame it as you know Whether or not you support it About the side of the spectrum that it comes from but as we've started to see government's realizing how badly they need to help people as the economy collapses during this pandemic have seen any movement On the other side of the aisle towards this kind of idea I think we've seen much more movement on on the conservative side than we have on the progressive side the beano progressives are are are very wary of guaranteed income proposals because I think you know quite rightly they remember certainly the academics who studied this. They remember that it was originally an idea that was intended to get rid of welfare and other social supports and that is always a concern that if you bring in a guaranteed income. Is it really just an attempt to shrink? The size of the state is an attempt to get rid of targeted support programs that that make people's lives better and I think that's a totally valid concern when I when I posted my article from the wall or something twitter. I got a lot of feedback from economists about that where they basically said you know. Oh here we go again. People people don't realize that this is a an attempt to slip in through the back door reduction in social programs. That's really interesting. Yeah but you know. Over the last few months we've seen a really array of conservatives. Come out and say that this is a good idea. Hugh Seagull. Who is a former senator standing red? Tory I WOULD. I would describe him as a thought leader. He's been he's been banging the drum for for guaranteed income for quite some time now but he was always sort of out there in the wilderness as a conservative suggesting that this was a good idea and he wasn't one of the ones who was saying that it should replace social programs. He was saying it should be an augmentation to them but in the states over a matter of weeks you saw people like Mitt. Romney coup is basically the Avatar of hedge fund capitalism. Coming out and and suggesting that this was a good idea that would support. Americans during the fallout from Cova and ultimately Donald Trump's government. It's not it's not a permanent basic income. But they sent a check to every American and that is sort of one of the hallmarks of a basic income. So it's interesting the degree to which we've seen conservatives rally behind this particular policy flag. I think that it is driven by shorter. Term political objectives American politicians having election. That they're looking at in November and one of the surest ways to get defeated is to be in being government while people are losing their jobs losing their homes losing their livelihood so I think it's more self preservation than a genuine change of heart but in from a policy perspective. You take the support where you can get it and you build on it from there. So you know I think advocates of a U. UB. I should take their support and and leverage it in order to build their movement if you can may be explained to me the thought behind the benefits of this applying to absolutely everyone including people who have job because that's really And we can debate in Canada versus the US for however long. But that's that's like the primary difference between what trump's government has done and what Canada's done with the baby. Yeah that's the tricky part. That's the part that a lot of people struggle with conceptually and intellectually as is the idea of giving people who don't need money more money right. Yeah and Ken Boston cool. Who is is a former adviser to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark? He's been kind of driving the bus in Canada around the need for a UB. I you know he's he is preferred that to the more targeted approach that the government has taken with Serb. You know his idea in the short term is we just need to get money into people's hands right. Now we need we need to stimulate the economy and ultimately will tax it back next year on people's income taxes that's the thing about a guaranteed income in the context of the system. We have here is if you're making sixty seventy thousand dollars a year. This is going to a portion of this. We'll get taxed back right and so it's not. It's not really free money. It's a little bit of free money and I suspect there would be some social programs that would get pulled back a little bit to to make the numbers work but you know at the end of the day. I don't think you can let the weaknesses in the policy that that might impact a few people. Override the benefits that would impact far more people. You know there's there's all sorts of data out there that suggests that a basic income would actually stimulate economic growth. There's all kinds of data that suggested improves. Health outcomes and Lord knows improving. Health outcomes would save taxpayers and the government a lot of money. Because that's where an increasing increasingly large part of our social budget is going and we'll continue to go in the years and months to come so you know it it is It's a tough idea to get past for some people that I find working already. Why should I get more money from the government but that money's going back into the economy and it stimulating economic growth that supporting jobs? It's reducing healthcare costs. You know I think there's a pretty good case for it and and you know it's one that we should be willing to explore. I am I am more than open to criticism about the cost factor that I suppose we can get to that in a second but I think we also need to look at the benefits and look a little a little bigger in terms of where those benefits accrue it. It's not just lifting people out of poverty. Although that's that's an obvious benefit it's improving people's health outcomes improving their labor market outcomes. Let's people who have a

Will Sudan's Transition to Democracy Succeed?

Background Briefing

Will Sudan's Transition to Democracy Succeed?

"Welcome to background briefing. Steve out. Thanks very much. And there was a massacre of the pro democracy. Protesters in Sudan's, capital, Khartoum. The capital is effectively locked down by the Jonjo. We'd militia is lead a committee appears to be the power behind. And the scenes here and trying to turn back the aspirations of the people who managed to oust the long time dictator Bashir, but it does appear that their chances of succeeding against the kind of brutality that the judge away to famous four particularly in the massacres I that they conducted enough or with the Saudi Arabians with CNA chipped. And with the Maradas backing the military and the judge. Wade, what's your sense, whether people power can prevail? I I've been terribly impressed in in moved over six months, so power people power, and I guess we have to say it isn't inexhaustible. They've particularly in the this, so called Muslim generals and dictators, so forth, have really desecrated the holy month of Ramadan for the population by killing people. And now making a complete farce of the, the, the holiday at the end of of fasting month. I really think they'll stop at nothing to continue with this can only call an another cool and Dan, and that they don't have much of an intention to turnover power. And particularly when they say that they wouldn't have elections and nine months. That's that's ridiculous. Really giving what they've they linked. They've gone so far to make sure elections wouldn't take place. In twenty twenty in the first place, and now to imagine there's staging elections and nine months is kind of beyond belief. Well, what I find beyond belief is that this relationship between President Trump and his son in law, Jared Kushner with MBC in the Emirates, and m BS, the Saudi Crown prince, in many ways, it was set up by this character. George Neda has just been arrested in at JFK airport on charges of having child pornography. He's a cake guy and setting up that relationship, and that seems to be at the heart of it. We have a president Scholley in Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who just simply don't care about the brutality of these people that they so unswervingly support. I mean, if you can still support Ben Salman off to the murder okay? Shoghi then you pretty shameless. Scholley. Oh my goodness. Yes. That, that without question. Yeah. So what can be done. The people in the US government show to the White House that can make some kind of stand for democracy. I guess the signs do point to the lower echelons, including the assistant secretary of state for making some pretty strong statements, and, and courage ING, or really condemning the military crackdown in the death of the protesters, and so forth. But I guess I wouldn't be surprised about the next step was to try to get in some sort of particularly African Union force to supervise some sort of oversight of, of peace talks of some nature. It's hard to imagine what they look like at this point. But that seems to be the usual pattern that the, the African Union is called into to Elise oversee these things if not bring. To some successful conclusion anyway, the next step. And again, I'm speaking with state. How is a professor says director for graduate studies at the high University School of media knots studies a sociologist, by training is work focuses on social change in Africa and social movements in the Muslim world, a just recently returned from sedan where he was visiting professor at the university for women. He's the author sedan scenes from youthful uprising and he's forthcoming book as we have mood on the path of the prophet and unsettled times. But at this point, you've got the John, Joey militia locking down the capital cartoon killing people indiscriminately and they pay to be doing. So at the behest of the military council, led by general relative Burhan. So once these guys back in the saddle and prepared to be that ruthless. Then not lucky to invite the African Union INA. They. No. Although they do have all kinds of amazing global connections in that they were brought to life after the four prices by the European Union, believe it or not, which gave to Dan, all kinds of money to make sure that migrants wouldn't cross through Sudan, into Egypt into the onto the Mediterranean in Europe. And, and the again, government gave all that money to strengthen the Jeonju, we then rename them as this rapid, deployment for to protect sue do monitor the borders, while these are the people who are now murdering protesters and compliments of the European Union. So what do you know about the John Wayne leader, heavy? I mean, how much does the military council control him? Well, you know. It's a, it's a very interesting issue, because of I'll be curious to see how it get because of really kind of rampant Sudanese racism that the people control the country, every administration, whether military or civilian since independence, have been people from the Nile valley, people from north of Kotome or itself, and vodka of someone from the four or being coming. Head of the government is, it's really hard to imagine given the way that people from the central part of the country look down on, on the Dr four people, and of course, the, the south side as well. Right. It's this is a rice between. What would you say between African looking people and Arab looking people? Is that is that the dot? Katameya and I'd say when you say Africa looking are looking, I think, for the most part from the outside perspective, it's hard to tell the difference among among the Sudanese, but it but they know who comes from where, and there that the, the central Sudanese, I, I love them dearly, but they're, they're kind of remarkable races to about the, the marginalized ethnic groups outside of the central part of the country. So they and they and they've marginalize them in terms of education, and social stature, and so horse. So they have much chance to rise up in this society through the military and is considered one of these dock skinned people. Right. I see that might limit is political horizons. What about that? As soon as professional association. That's been spearheading these protests. Do you think that simply that's going to be decimated, by the, by the Jonjo Wade, or do they have what kind of international today have I it's, it's strictly lip service to the to the to the greatest extent. I mean dot getting financial bagging. But they're certainly noble. Well, trained educated that gated peace loving good Muslim people, but without any arms at their disposal. And then, you know and they dot gonna take up arms. That's not their intention. And so, I think my guess is that they would just sort of fade into the background and, and another frustrated sort of, you know, giving up on democracy for now, kind of thing if. If things get more violent that would be my estimate. Well, is there any way to shame the Saudis agency and the Maradas who without their support this? Of course, if the US would would ravers rattle some sabres and, and make some noise about this and condemn what they all are up to. But, you know that's not gonna happen with the Trump governments. They're, they're very cozy with the leader of the Emirates and, and with these e and with, and the S and so forth, so that, that I can't see that happening. That would be astonishing and very significant but doesn't seem like we're going to intervene in that way. Unless I must we get some further public uproar in this country about it. And so I appreciate your talking about well just in closing then. These reactionary leaders liked CC, NBS NBC manage to roll back the clock in Egypt's, 'cause flirtation with the Arab spring, and in general, and if they succeed in, in Sudan. Crushing the democratic aspirations of Sudanese people. It doesn't say much for that raisins hopes for now democracy, doesn't even though you know, political Islam is being promoted by the Qataris seems to be alive, but not able to stand up to this reactionary SUNY kings and military generals, Lexi, right? I mean, the whole world is becoming very Trump like and it needs to end. So. State. How I think very much for joining us. Oh my pleasure. Thanks for calling me. And again, I'm speaking with Steve, how is professor and director for graduate studies at the high University School of media arts and studies associates by training.

Explainer 150: Has Donald Trumps presidency benefited Taiwan?

"In. One of Trump's first forays into foreign policy following his election victory. 2016 was to take a phone call from Taiwan's president sighing when it isn't unusual, of course, for world leaders to speak on the telephone. But he represented a potentially significant shift in the relationship between the United States when it was after all the first time that one of the self-governed islands leaders and a US president believed of spoken since motion and Taipei severed diplomatic ties in the nineteen seventies. The United States of America, and the people of China have agreed to recognize each other and to establish diplomatic relations. That's then US president Jimmy Carter. Speaking nineteen Seventy-nine, the government of the United States of America acknowledges, the Chinese position that there is but one China and Taiwan is part of Chen. He was eight lining dramatic change in policy, including recognition from the White House. Woulda did to Beijing strict when China policy it was in essence a diplomatic acknowledgement that there was only one Chinese government. So had Donald Trump's phone call with saying when changed all that. This is what the right wing commentator. John Bolton told the broadcast of Fox News shortly after Trump was elected. Honestly, I think we should shake this relationship for the past several years. China has made aggressive I would say near belligerent claims in the South China Sea, they declared it to be a Chinese province. They've established a provincial capital. They're trying to put their hands around the throats of the economies Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and others has a direct impact on the United States. They also think Taiwan province. You wanna talk about provinces, China, we'll talk that was Joan Bolton who to the world's astonishment would later become Trump's national security advisor cooler heads appear to prevailed in the white as it committed to own of the one-china policy in practice things at different Washington. Continue to provide Taiwan with aids and their reports that the US is ready to approve three hundred thirty million dollars with volumes to the Taiwanese women. Change your funded haven't China firmly opposes any form of official or military contacts between Taiwan and the United States firmly opposes the United States arm sales to Taiwan under any circumstance, I hereby reiterate once again, the whoever commits any act of blowing themselves up by leaning onto foreign forces and undermining cross-straits pieces to -bility we'll have to eat the bitter fruit. They brew young. It hasn't gone very well in Beijing. China's leaders have warned of severe damage to bilateral ties with the US if the sale goes ahead, but it must also be seen in the context of the bitter trade war is being waged between the world's superpowers, a great respected affection from my friend president sheet, but I've made clear our trade imbalance is just not acceptable, China's market, distortions, and the way they deal. Cannot be tolerated. Taiwan will not appear in scathed from any economic standoff between the US and China Donald Trump's America. First policies have already had a dramatic impact on the island export orders. But Taipei's leaders may feel that it is a price with paying should use warships continue to stick their finger Beijing as they pass through the Taiwan Strait it being confirmed that to u s warships passed through the Taiwan Strait yesterday. It's the first such operation this year and Taiwan is likely to view it as support from Donald Trump's government. China says that the self ruled island is part of its territory and Beijing has not ruled out the use of force to bring it under control. The US navy's presence will certainly cheer the embattled Taiwanese president. So when many of the allies have deserted. And she's no longer chair of the ruling party following poor election results. It is clearly no coincidence as you cues. Beijing fake news. She stepped down. On these are uncertain times Taiwan, but for the time being at least Washington has its back.
