"Even if this is an opportunistic move that is more about trying to move away from the CFA franc, then trying to move towards Bitcoin. The fact that Bitcoin exists and is a tool for that attempt to gain more monetary independence is in and of itself powerful. Welcome back to the breakdown with me, and I'll W it's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. The breakdown is sponsored by nexo IO, arculus, NFTX, and produced and distributed by coin desk. What's going on guys? It is Wednesday, April 27th, and today we are talking about the second nation to officially make Bitcoin legal tender. Now, a couple of quick notes before we get into that. First, you know the spiel, give the pots some love wherever you listen to it. And if you want to get into the conversation, join us on the Discord. It's truly an awesome community and I'd love to see you there. But second, if you have not yet registered for coin desks consensus event, I sincerely suggest you do. It's happening between June 9th and the 12th in Austin, Texas, and is the event that covers the full spectrum of what this industry has to offer from Bitcoin to blockchain to web three to metaverse to all these different buzzwords. It's for new people, old people, and everyone in between. What's more they just announced that balaji srinivasan has been added and you know he always has something interesting to say. If you do want to register use code breakdown to get 15% off your pass and you can do that at coin desk dot com slash consensus 2022. All right, so today we have an absolute flurry of jurisdictional engagement with Bitcoin and crypto. It is just so clear that this is one of the biggest themes, if not the biggest theme for the industry this year. Governments from city to the nation state level and even beyond are taking this technology seriously, grappling with how to fit it into public policy regimes and figuring out if it needs to change those regimes. So let's start with an exciting follow-up to a story we discussed earlier this week. The Central African Republic does in fact seem to be adopting Bitcoin as legal tender. A bill that had been jointly prepared by the minister of digital economy and the minister of finance and budget, and which the National Assembly had previously passed was just signed into law by the president. The bill establishes a legal and regulatory framework for cryptocurrencies in general, but also makes Bitcoin specifically legal tender alongside the existing CFA franc. A little bit of quick background here. I still owe you guys a full show about the CFA at some point, but CFA is an acronym for the African financial community, but in French. And it's the name of two currencies the West African CFA franc and the Central African CFA franc. Between them these currencies are used in 14 countries in the middle and western part of the continent. These francs were created in December 1945 at the close of World War II. As part of ratifying bretton Woods, the French franc was devalued in order to set a fixed exchange rate with the United States dollar. France then created these new currencies ostensibly or reportedly at least as a way to spare their colonies that devaluation. However, since 1960, these CFA currencies have been devalued 99.9% against first the French franc and later the Euro. Their biggest criticism remains post colonial control and influence. The currency is still deeply tied up with the French treasury, making it not really a sovereign currency for the nations who use it. In January 2019, after the Italians criticized France for the CFA franc, accusing them of impoverishing Africa with it, France booted Italy's ambassador to Paris. That said, later that year, the president of France and the president of the Ivory Coast announced a wave of reform, including replacing the West African CFA franc with a new currency called the eco. In May 2020, the French National Assembly also voted to end French engagement in the West African CFA franc, which means that the country is using it will no longer have to deposit half of their foreign exchange reserves with the French treasury. Still, there is clearly here an incredibly complicated post colonial relationship. And that makes the CAR decision to add Bitcoin as legal tender all the more interesting. The finance minister Herve and doba said last week, there's a common narrative that sub Saharan African countries are often one step behind when it comes to adapting to new technology. This time we can actually say that our country is one step ahead. Now I'll atchison from genesis says it is interesting that it is the first of the CFA countries to take a step away from French monetary hegemony. There are 13 others not to mention several other small economies that are probably paying attention here. I need to approach makes another interesting point, quote I can't tell how sincere this move by the presidency is, how much they understand Bitcoin, time will tell. But it's interesting to see how one country after the other thinks about how Bitcoin could help them gain independence. Anita's point which I really like is that even if this is an opportunistic move that is more about trying to move away from the CFA franc, then trying to move towards Bitcoin. The fact that Bitcoin exists and is a tool for that attempt to gain more monetary independence is in and of itself powerful. This one isn't getting the same sort of press and play as El Salvador partially because it's not the first, partially because there isn't a naive bukele who has such a command of social media and partially just because of just how poor the Central African Republic is. But it's still going to be another.

Lee Smith Helps Us Unpack the Ukraine War

"With us right now is Lee Smith. He is a well respected author and columnist and an expert on international relations as we are going to kind of just give an update on what's happening in Ukraine. We haven't even mentioned Ukraine for a couple of weeks, and nobody better than Lee Smith to help us unpack it, Lee. Welcome back to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, thank you very much for inviting me back. It's great to speak with you. And thanks for asking me to speak about this important topic. Look, I mean, what I have written, what I've explained in the past is a lot of the noise that we've seen coming out of the war. I mean, these are two countries at war, Russia and Ukraine. So we can expect for there to be all sorts of propaganda. And information warfare. What's peculiar about this, what's peculiar about this conflict is the amount of propaganda that's coming out of the United States. In particular, it's coming out of Washington regarding this war and as I've argued since the beginning of this conflict, what this indicates is information warfare is attached to real genuine operations. The information warfare that's being waged against the American people regarding the conflict in Russia and Ukraine is attached to genuine operations targeting the American public. In particular, you're a great audience may have seen yesterday a letter signed by former intelligence chiefs, including James clapper, Michael morrell, Leon Panetta, right? And what they are asking what they are warning is that the disinformation coming out of Russia means that the intelligence community needs more control over big tech. And if you break up big tech, if you go after Google, if you go after Apple, if you go after large big tech corporations, you're going to be making American national security vulnerable. And they've been so helpful so far. These big tech corporations to us here running national security. What I'm getting at is that Vladimir Putin's invasion of Russia has served as cover for the national security establishment to escalate its war against the American republic.

"China's new weapon is only one of a series of hypersonic weapons being developed by Beijing Russia and the U.S. the U.S. and Russia have also spent decades working on their own hypersonic nuclear capable systems And the two countries have conducted tests on the weapons in recent months Here's the difference the Chinese have stolen our technology and improved it While we sit on our hands Washington and Moscow have only made public details of their medium range hypersonic weapons that are designed to be launched from ships or planes and do not strike from space But China's testing now of a 25,000 mph hypersonic missile which flew through space before launching an attack on its target took analysts by surprise indicated Beijing's missile program is more advanced than previously thought That was the extent of the details as they're known right now Now our missile called the arrow Can reach a speed of 15,345 mph The what they call the fractional orbit bombardment system or the Chinese new missile that they fired the top speed is not 25,000 mph Excuse me It's 21,000 mph The range is unlimited The range of our missile is believed to be about a thousand miles but it's not certain launch from a B one B bomber The Chinese can launch their missile from any land base

"7 21. This is morning edition from NPR News. I mean, Martinez and I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. The White House is facing some difficult times internationally. The way the withdrawal from Afghanistan is playing out, has some allies questioning us competence and resolve. Last night, the Biden administration trying to get the focus back on its top foreign policy objective. China President Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping had a phone call only their second since Biden took office. NPR, China Affairs correspondent John Ruiz is with us on the line. Hi, John. Hi there what they talk about? Well. The conversation, according to the White House was broad and strategic. They talked about areas where the U. S and China have interests that converge and areas that values interests and perspectives diverged in there. A lot of those, the Chinese readout was pretty similar to the U. S. One. And interestingly, it struck a more conciliatory and sort of hopeful tone than state rhetoric has done in the past year. Relations are really bad now between China and the U. S. And in button and she Both talked about how the two countries have a responsibility to ensure that competition doesn't veer into conflict. But you know, it's hard to know at this point. Just how much of this call will really help relations? I mean, it's the first call since February, which is a pretty long hiatus right for something that's so important. I understand. The Biden administration says it asked for this phone call right? Yeah, it did. Relations. As I said, have been pretty icy. Their interactions that there have been to date have been frustrating to the U. S. According to a senior U. S. Administration official. This person said Chinese officials were basically showing up to meetings to read out tough sounding talking points and that might be good for domestic propaganda in China, but really didn't amount to what the US saw his engagement or diplomacy. So The idea for this call was to kind of re ignite dialogue at the highest level, try to unstick things. But also the Afghanistan withdrawal is still reverberating right? Biden's poll numbers are down. So this is the way really, to show that he's at the helm on this key foreign policy issue, but is the issue that she, Jean Ping doesn't want to engage as much as the U. S. Would would prefer. Yeah, that's what they were trying to probe with this. You know, they're not happy in Beijing with the Biden policy towards China. They didn't like Donald Trump right. He launched a trade war and then took a series of unprecedented steps near the end of his presidency that harden US policy towards China. They felt Beijing hopes bit Biden would be different. So far, he hasn't rolled back many of Trump's big China policies. He's working with allies to try to get tough on China. And the U. S mantra has been that the relationship will be competitive in some areas and cooperative and others. Chinese officials, though, aren't having it. I mean, they've they've said it's foolish for the US to expect cooperation when there Doing things that Beijing seasons undermining China's interests. Whether that's on technology, trade or core issues like Hong Kong, Taiwan, a Xinjiang and meanwhile the G twenty's coming up in October is Xi Jinping going to go? We don't know. It's a good question. You know, the big question here is whether this all trickles down and changes the way things work at lower levels. Yeah. NPR China affairs correspondent John Ruiz. Thank you. Thank you. Time.

"Help patrol the two countries' borders. The arrival of the aircraft coincides with the meeting between the two countries leaders Vladimir Putin and Alexander Lukashenka in Moscow. Calories and Russia already formally part of a union state and could look to deepen that integration, something which concerns NATO and many who are opposed to Mr Putin and Mr Lukashenka. Eleanor Bind Man is an expert on Russia and Eastern Europe at Manchester Metropolitan University here in the UK and joins us now, Welcome to news Day. What are we talking about, then in terms of military cooperation, it's not just a couple of jets. No. So Russia's had Russian gallerist have long had quite intensive cooperation in terms of military and defense, and next week they will be engaging in the sort of quite large scale military joint military exercises as well. And I think the aim is really to underline that the closeness of the relationship between the two countries But it's not really a new thing. It does seem to be intensifying. But it's not a new development. When you say show the strength of that relationship is that from his perspective domestically, just say two opponents watch out. Look who's on our side. Or is it a signal to NATO to Western Europe? Or perhaps to both? And I think it's very much to both and also signalled to the EU as well. So they'll arrest is obviously quite sort of unique position in terms of its geographical location that borders Russia, But it also borders a number of EU countries and also Ukraine as well. So, um it's in a really key position, and I think this is very much meant to signal to this internal opposition. But also its external opposition coming from particularly from from Europe from NATO from the U. S. And so on. And does President Lukashenka take this sort of decision from a position of strength now or rather one of weakness? Um, I think I think very much. One of weakness. He's the relationship between him and Putin has always been fairly close, although, at times been quite sort of fracture is quite problematic. But it's certainly in the last year since domestic politics and the other risk became much more complicated for him. And he's really lent on that relationship with Putin, and it has made him much more dependent on Russian support for his own regime survival, So I don't think he's very much coming from a position of weakness, not total weakness. At this point. He's still in power. He's maintaining his position, but he is becoming increasingly dependent on Russia is really his only supporter. What about this issue of the Union states? Sort of linking the two nations? Is that something that will the status of that will change do you suspect over the next weeks and months? And it has been talked about for quite a long time. It's something this union state has been in existence again for a number of years. Um, what's quite interesting is that even now, when Even Lukashenka himself talks about deepening the relationship with Russia about possible greater integration between the two countries. He's still quite keen to protect the sovereignty of the other arrests itself, so there was talk that they might sign some kind of road map towards further integration between the two countries today or in the near future. But even if they do, it's not clear that that will actually dramatically change the status quo. So it seems like again it's all kind of a performance in some respects, but that the relationship itself, which is already very close may not go much further than it has already because that's a difficult line to walk isn't it's greater integration and yet maintain our sovereignty. Yes, very much so And of course, as we've seen with Russia's annexation of Crimea, for example, taking that from, you know, out with Ukraine's sovereignty, um that's you know, very problematic. If Russia gets heavily involved in those situations, it tends not to go the way of the country where that particular territory is located. So I think that actually, he's probably quite wary of seating even more control to Russia than he already has. And Russia has an enormous amount of economic influence and generous already. And so it's not clear that greater political influence is necessarily something that Lukashenko would what would welcome. We talked quite a lot about Belarus's motivations. What is Mr Putin thinking at this point? Well, he has a few different reasons for supporting this extremely unpleasant, an extremely repressive regime. Belarus So first of all, the fact that the opposition in Belarus has been challenging the authority and the legitimacy of Lukashenko's regime for over a year now is extremely unhelpful to Putin because he's also facing opposition to his regime in Russia, perhaps not on the same level, but it's meant to be a signal in some respects to Protesters. Opposition forces independent media in Russia that he won't tolerate that kind of behavior at home, and he also won't tolerate it in galleries to some extent, either, but also if there was to be any kind of regime change in gallerist that would be perceived as a big threat to the Russian regime, which operates not entirely along the same principles. Increasingly along similar using similar tactics of repression against journalists against opposition activists, and so on, So it's ready to sort of maintain Russia's dominant certainly in the region, but also to maintain the legitimacy of his own regime, as well as Lukashenko's.

"Of Canada. The Pentagon says more troops will be deployed along the Mexico border for 1/4 year. As many as 3000 soldiers will stay until September of next year about 3800 troops are currently deployed to support US customs and border agents. President Biden is urging more Americans to get vaccinated because the delta variant of Covid is spreading across this country. We can't get Complacent Now. ABC is Karen Travers joins us from the White House. Karen, What's the plan? You know, the president yesterday talked about this hard work, and it's going to be done in the summer months. And you know that we can do this and get more people vaccinated. But I thought it was notable that there wasn't a new timeline set. Remember, We've been talking for weeks about the administration's goal of July 4th and having 70% of Americans partly vaccinated. That goal was not met that last weekend, but they say they will get their over the coming weeks. So instead of saying, you know, Labor day we want to get 75% or 80% or something. Instead, the administration is saying they're really going to refocus efforts to try and persuade people who might be persuadable to get their vaccines and a couple of specific things we're going to do is targeted community by community outreach, you know, using volunteers and community organizations to literally go door to door and trying Find people who haven't gotten their shots but maybe want together or just aren't sure where to get it to tell them it's safe and to tell them as widely available. There's going to be a more of a focus now to get vaccines to primary care doctors so people can get their shots where they're already going for checkups will also see a big focus in the coming weeks on those kids who are 12 to 18 so that they can get vaccinated before they go back to school. At their physical exams or sports checkups and things like that big Thank you from the White House is saying, If you're vaccinated, you have high, effective or high degree of protection against the delta variants. The vaccines are highly effective. If you are not, you really need to think hard about getting vaccinated. Checking the president's schedule. Today. I see one of the things that'll get. His attention is all the ransomware attacks that we've been having in this country. Yeah, he is having a meeting today before he heads to Illinois, focusing on cybersecurity. The White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki a few moments ago, said that the president is reserving the option of taking action. If Russian cybercriminals don't cease these attacks on U. S companies and organizations. We are expecting to see the president around 10 30 our time when he heads. Out of the White House to travel to Illinois, hoping to take some questions about that meeting after it concludes we learned this morning the president of Haiti has been assassinated, has the White House correspondent The White House has given a initial response, saying that they're still gathering information, but they will be helpful in any way to the government and the people of Haiti. Jen Psaki, in an interview on MSNBC called this assassination a horrific and tragic attack. Karen. Thank you for your update this morning, and we'll stay in touch.

"Plans during the bush administration And this was even then seen as quite provocative y- three baltic republics. Lithuania estonia latvia. That had been a part of the former soviet union had already come into nato and these were two countries that were clearly going to be provocative in terms of extending this by vizier russia. I don't need to tell you that because since this member membership action plans are offered. Russia has invaded and occupied hearts of both those videos. Clearly get animating force of everything about weimar. Putin is basically been these. Two countries are not going to go into nato. And i think that the awkward truth here newman how much you care about ukrainian sovereignty. We should and ukraine's ability to choose. Its own relationships. Is article five says an attack on one is attack on all you have to mean it. You suddenly you're taking in countries where you know you're not sure if you go to war to defend them the whole purpose of the alliance collapses and let's face it. Do americans want to go to war. Three i mean russia's in ukraine right now but logic of them being nato's if he would go to war with russia right because there and this is the awkward dance biden has to act like. We're still open to this. But i think commonsensical people know like this is not happening anytime soon. You know but you don't want totally withdraw because you don't wanna look like you're caving to the russians but you also don't want zelenskiy to be out there saying oh it's all coming in the nato so we got to be careful about this you know. It's a difficult balancing the china thing. Look i think it's important that the g seven china was on on on the agenda at nato. It's important them to kind of be noting it as they kinda did in. The communique is something that is going to have to think about. But like i'm a little wary of like saying nato okay now like we're at afghanistan with the russians over here but but now gonna get ready for the next conflict with china. let's take one step at a time here. We're going to get out on ghanistan. We gotta four defy europe eastern european security in the face of russia. We're gonna think about cyber challenges to think about the mediterranean in the gene where there's a lot of activity terrorism and so i- introducing china's something. That is disgusted. I think it makes sense. But but the idea that like nato is gonna be patrolling. The south china sea here like. Let's let's let's calm down there too. You know so. I think with the binding trying to shape the agenda for all these stations going forward like these are going to be. We need to talk about. And i think that's right. I wouldn't over crank that china piece. Yeah i think that's that's well put so we'll close to the g seven so On mondays positive. America we talked about the frustration from activists that g seven countries didn't do more to commit to helping developing countries. Get cova vaccines and you know. Do more on climate change specifically hastening the transition away from coal fired power plants so you know given the urgency of both those problems. I think it's obviously fair to one more. I bet biden's team agrees and they're really focused. You know when it comes to climate on that big Next climate change summit in november Ben think brexit was hanging over the entire summit Biden and apparently president macron of france push board johnson really hard on issues around brexit northern ireland's. The uk itself is struggling to reopen because of an uptick in covid cases. Again like the change in tone really did help gloss over. I think a lot of the substantive challenges but what did you make the g. seven success failure tvd. So i thought the most interesting thing is. I've mentioned this. When biden gave the speech to congress when he shifted to farm policy like he didn't mention terrorism for. I was struck by just the agenda of the g. Seven was a totally different agenda than anyone we've seen before the agenda was co bid. It was climate change. It was china it was. Democracy was anti corruption. All these things. We've been talking about his pockets for viewers that is now what the agenda is. The world's democracies and that is important in new to have the us kind of emphasizing that set of issues. I mean we have ceded some of this in the obama years. But i mean you really didn't see the middle east and terrorism front and center in the ways that has been the case in the best. I think that's good. And that's the space to watch. That means the us. All these multilateral institutions is going to be focused on a post post nine eleven foreign policy or really the first time i think on the scale being bishen like like people right to push i think on each one part of this is it's early days on climate. The europeans are like well. What are you going to do you. it's like we have. I mean the we're back you know as we keep saying and hearing but like what is our building to be the passage through congress like the biggest thing america can do. Would you start. Emissions in the near term is passed the most ambitious climate bill possible. And you know it's not clear whether that stuff is gonna get sacrificed on the altar of bipartisanship You know so. I think it's just gonna take until that summit in bosco later in the year before we'd know can how ambitious the us can be with our target which is part of how we get other nations to be more ambitious read. I do think the bike is going to have to deliver. They've raised a lot of expectations. We're gonna lead the fight against a vaccine inequity against climate change promoting a global foreign policy for the middle class like like minimum taxation. A lot of these things are commitments without you know the substance behind them yet. That's to be expected when it's june of your first year in office. But i mean they've they've kind of set the report card for themselves like are they gonna be able to to elevate the ambition on climate are they going to be able to elevate the emission in getting rid a cold they can be able to elevate the global minimum tax. And and we'll see an and i we should be reading for. Yeah totally rooting for it. It was it was good to see that you know. I think pew research center poll of twelve foreign countries in in some of them. You know america's favorability was up by as much as thirty points but the flip side of that was majorities and i think all the countries surveyed or at least most of them express concern about the state of america's democracy itself. So no surprise there as to why Ben this is old news now. But did you see this story about the cicadas swarming the engine of the press charter in delaying their departure. Time i did i did. I did that press. Charter is the subject of more drama. I cursed It's yeah it's yeah. It was cursed on our first. Foreign trip was only added for days for by. Yes yes so like just so everyone knows like the foreign trips right you have reporters on air force one. That's the pool. It's a smaller group in the white house. Charter is a separate plane to take the rest of the press corps like ahead. I was often manifested on that plane. in means you get up at godawful times you land hours and hours early and sit there and wait and sometimes it can work on your favor like that time. You just mentioned. The plane broke down and we got stuck in istanbul for like an extra day. So i got to do high via the blue mosque like all the cool things another time we had to kill. I think ten hours of the w hotel in bali while you guys were all still At the summit at the end of a long ways. I'm going to do a very quick explainer tommy on something in your house.

"I think some people could argue at a disproportionate level. We teach our racial history and all of our public schools and certainly all of our private schools. It's taught everywhere. No one's saying don't teach racial history. No one's saying don't teach an honest assessment of the history of the united states including racial issues. people are saying don't put race race essentially them into the schools. Don't teach children that they are born racist and to see everything through a racial lens and that things like showing up on time and hard work are tools of being white. That is actually kind of racist. But you can't even honestly assess what the other people are saying. I'm taking your words for what they are and showing you that it's nonsense you are saying nobody wants that. The republicans don't want people to be taught about racer and honest assessment of history. That is a complete lie. You are a liar. But don't just take my word for it. Chris rufo who as you guys know is one of the leading legal experts fighting critical race theory in all of these states. He's one of the guys that are getting these states to push out the ideas of critical race theory not to say you can't teach about racism and slavery which we all learned in high school. Did anyone not learn junior high and high school about about racism about slavery. Everyone did no one's saying you can't learn about that's with these idiots are claiming we're saying but it's not true but chris roofer who has brought many of these lawsuits to say you just can't indoctrinate children and tell children that they're guilty over the color of their skin which of course they are not guilty over the skin well rufo replied to robert reich. He said i used to respect you but this is a flat out lie. None of the bills limiting teaching a none of the bills limit teaching about racism.
