Is Bitcoin a Chinese Financial Weapon?
"What's going on guys. It is thursday april eight and today we have a juicy one. We're talking about a question. Brought up by peter thiel yesterday. Is bitcoin a chinese financial weapon. So some days. I'll be honest. It's a bit of a struggle figuring out what to dedicate a show to. That's less so in the bull market certainly a little bit more in the bear markets. Other days there's some big news that makes it obvious the most interesting days however are when it's not big news item but a big community discussion that drives the days content so when i saw headlines last night coming out saying that peter thiel a stalwart supporter of bitcoin had said that bitcoin was a weapon of the chinese government and that because of that the us government should be asking more questions about how that works. Oh boy did. I know that this was going to be today's topic. I want to have this conversation in three parts. First i want to look at interpretations of what the actually said second. I want to look at the specific idea of bitcoin as a weapon for the chinese government. And i want to look more broadly at the geopolitical geostrategic battle around the world reserve currency. As i've said innumerable times this is a show about power shifts power so this should be a fun part one. What actually said now i will be honest the parsing and pinching trying to argue what a specific person meant when they said something is actually sort of the least interesting part of this discussion to me much more fascinated in the broader conversation at brings up however there are a lot of people on all sides of this discussion trying to lay claim to the statement itself. So let's look at that first and before we get into interpretations actually listened to what he said from china's point of view. They want to get on. They don't like the us having this reserve currency because it gives us a lot of leverage over iranian oil supply chains and all sorts of things like that they like They don't want the room to become a reserve currency. Because then you have to open your capital count and do all sorts of things that they really don't want to do on the euro you could think of as you know is in part chinese weapon against the dollar didn't last decade hasn't quite worked out that way but that was china we've liked to see to reserve currencies like like the euro and know even though i'm sort of pro crypto pro. Bitcoin maximalist person. I i do wonder whether at this point. Bitcoin is also should also be taught in part of as a chinese of financial weapon against the us. Where it's it is. It threatens fiat money but especially threatens the the us dollar and And china wants to do things to weaken it. So it's sort of china's long bitcoin and perhaps from political perspective The us should be a little bit off some tougher questions about exactly how that works.
Matt Gaetz associate expected to plead guilty in sex trafficking case
"Congressman Matt Gates, multiple All reports surfaced earlier today that Joel Greenberg, the former Seminole County tax collector and close associate of Gates, is facing charges for sex trafficking of a minor is in play negotiations. We know the Justice Department launched an investigation into Gates after first investigating and indicting Greenberg and the lawyer for Greenberg said today. You sure Matt Gates isn't feeling very comfortable right now. What do you make of that development? Well, you know, Ryan, it's something that any of us who are involved with the federal judicial system saw coming. Quite a while ago, they superseded the existing indictment on Greenberg. He was then violated on the conditions of his release taken into custody. And so now they have him where they want every several defendant and that's in jail and the only way out for him is to begin cooperating because his guidelines and fairly severe given the nature of all the charges that are pending against them, not just the sex trafficking charge and that one carries a significant penalty to it. His only way out now is to cooperate against somebody else and that somebody else Escape, and so gate should be very worried about what Greenberg has to say. He's a corroborating witness. He is according to everything that we read and seen a coconspirator in the activity involving the young lady who was under the age of 18. And so his testimony is going to bolster the government's case, and Gates is going to be looking at an indictment coming against him, and Greenberg's gonna benefit from his cooperation. Now I know

"With with with lawmakers or there's a whole variety of tactics. That's why you need a sophisticated campaign across the whole regulatory spectrum. E do find it interesting. You draw the perils of what Treasury the U. S. Government Treasury certain took a lead. And cutting off financing for terrorism. After 9 11 on my impression is they were reasonably effective at that. Is that right? Is that accurate? Absolutely. It was amazing. I mean, first of all, A lot of things across the government of the national security spectrum happened, Um, during that time of the whole government reorganization, But what Treasury did in just those those two months after 9 11? He worked with the White House to roll out. I mean, President George W. Bush was explaining that this is a financial threat and he's he's starting the war on terror with, you know, by going after their networks struck the pen, and they had all of these new designations and took down nodes of terrorist financing. They really developed their intelligence capabilities started the longer term investigations coordinated throughout the government. Congress passed the most sweeping overhaul of U. S anti money laundering laws in a generation, like two or three weeks after 9 11 and, um Actually, the thing in the India is going to be the next biggest thing like that. But then the internationalized the Treasury. They got 30 countries to do the same all in like less than two months, so we can do really big things well, and that's really why ask the question because typically, when you start to talk about well contributed campaigns or alternative meeting feels like there's just no way to do that. In this fiber space. It's just too complicated. But for your analogy that suggests that maybe you think we could be really effective. We want to cut this off. Absolutely. We've done the hardest part. The hardest part, frankly, has been the politics in terms of you mentioned cyber and is all of these new tools of foreign interference have been hurting her democracy for at least half a decade now. And we've had a difficult time addressing them Closing, we pulled Doon the administrative work. Because they're effective in in in. I mean, we do enough to ourselves in terms of paralyzing our politics, But then they just push on that and take advantage of it. And so for the past few years, it's been difficult in both the administration in Congress to do much, but now we've got this landmark law coming and we've got administration that's really committed to it. So Absolutely. They've got all the tools. They just need to get organized into a cookie, and I think they will. Okay, The last I think tricky question. Is there any reluctance on the part of the U. S government to this Because to some extent we may be doing at ourselves in some places. No. I mean what we do in terms of, um of spending money in a way that you could have Geopolitical consequences is very different than this malign, malign influence in the money laundering. I should say we did do this way did spend money on foreign elections.

"We owe two political parties. This is America and we put country before party. We will stand together behind our new president. I think Donald Trump actually put the majority of Americans First I like the America first policies of Donald John Trump. I think it it led to great successes. And speaking of successes, I heard something this weekend where Jake Tapper either accidentally. Or, um, maybe he was having Ah covert fever dream, congratulated or complimented Donald Trump on some of his accomplishments. This happened yesterday on CNN. I come to you at the end of the show today to praise Donald Trump not to bury him. Okay? He's repurpose ng Shakespeare there what she did say But to praise Donald Trump not to bury him. Continue, Sir, You have my ears. Outgoing President Trump deserves our thanks for approving Operation Warp speed. Hmm. Did you ever think you'd hear that on CNN, CNN who was wall to wall with the Woodward book. But in the book, it does say that Donald Trump Way first heard about the pandemic instantly approved operation warp speed to get us to the vaccine, which was put in people's arms in America today. Continue praising the president, Jake Tapper, which helped to bring us the covert vaccine. Yes, he has rethought trade deals he has re imagined Peace in the Middle East is pushed foreign policy consensus to put more of a priority on bringing US service members home even if his follow through has been rather wanting. These are legitimate achievements. There are other ways outgoing President Trump perhaps inadvertently has done us a service. Oh, here it comes. This is the but you know when somebody gives you a compliment. And you keep waiting. You're going. Oh, there's a but common there is a but common and knowing CNN. It's gonna be up big, but go ahead, Jake. The relationship between the news media and the U. S. Government should not be anywhere near as antagonistic as it's been under president from, But it's what I buy. Buy buy. Antagonistic G I wanted that's a two way street. Could that possibly be considered two way street where the mainstream media might have had coverage of Donald Trump that somehow was hovering around 94%? Don't know for the past five years. You called the guy a racist. You called him home. A phobic. He called him massage. Ernest. You call them everything in the book and you let your Biden get away with everything. Everything that you accused Donald Trump off. Everything. Remember Joe Biden was the guy who didn't want his kids going to a segregated school because he didn't want them in a racial jungle. Joe Biden was the guy who was author of the Crime Bill. Joe Biden was accused of sexual assault by a former staffer, and that woman was isolated. Just put away. It's just amazing. The tapper and CNN. The mainstream media itself can say that Donald Trump is the problem when they themselves were the Flint striking the sparks towards the Trump media fire. There's a little bit more from tapper here didn't from, but it should be adversarial. Yes, the media relationship with the president should be adversarial.

"I don't think we or anyone else viewed Instagrams as a competitor is a large, multi purpose social platforms. In fact, people at the time kind of mocked our acquisition because they thought that we dramatically spent more money than we should have. Billions were thrown it smaller companies in an effort to get them to sell. To most glaring examples of this unlawful scheme where instagram and what's up. They also sent a clear message to the industry. Don't step on Facebook's turf. Or as one industry exec put it, you will face The raft. Mark the wrath of mark the raft. Mark, not the most frightening looking character I've ever seen in my life. If he loomed out of the darkness of I'm gonna sleep. It's a work. What are you doing in here? Going on? Well, the headline is the U. S. Government and 48 attorneys general of filed landmark antitrust lawsuits against Facebook on Wednesday. They're trying to break up the social networking giant. Over charges that engaged in illegal anti competitive tactics to buy bully and kill its rivals, which sounds very dramatic, But the law is often a little more dry than that, and to help us understand what's going on. We've invited Elizabeth Dwoskin, the Silicon Valley correspondent of the Washington Post on Elizabeth, How are you? I'm pretty good. How are you tired? I don't know how your reporting on this, don't you? Aren't you worry over the wrath of Mark? Yeah. Before this. We've definitely felt the rest of Mark. Yeah, all right. He didn't jump out of a scary closet. I'll bet you you have felt so it's some of the reporting on this, particularly in broadcast media is awfully dramatic, and then They buy bully your Varian and one of the charges. The New York attorney general throughout there was that they would they would just throw money at rivals and buy them out. You know, to which I reply. Send me the paperwork. But what? What are they being accused of that? It seems to you the closest to real monopolistic violations. Well, that's what's so interesting and complicated about this. This case, it's there's a lot of things about the case that are unprecedented as far as what the FTC is trying to claim. And what what actual harms face because cause because the other piece of it is even if they are a monopoly, and by the way, I've been awfully doesn't mean just the only player in one market. It could be good. Even on this case isn't about Google and Facebook dominating on ads. You could say those two have a monopoly because they have such enormous share of the market if in courts have defined a monopoly As one company having at least 50% of the market and somewhere around 75%. And if you look at, you know, just the number of Americans are on Facebook. You know, it's about 70%. And then you add instagrams. They own another 37%. So I think you can get to the To the idea of market share, even though they'll say But look, we have competitors. You know, we have. Tic tac has been a huge competitors. Some reports a tic tac was more downloaded. And Facebook this year, So you know, and other competitors as well snap, etcetera, But you know, they don't need to have no competent they can have some competition still be a monopoly. The next question That's what's wrong with Like throwing money at things and buying things. They're not right. Well, that's where like that's where the most interesting questions to me in the lawsuit come because a lot of people in Silicon Valley just said Look That's business. As usual, you're powerful company, and these companies were willing to be sold. But what you see is some of the questionable business practices almost like the strong arm tactics that Really crossed the line like saying to companies. Look, you know you use our data because a lot of the companies that Facebook was competing with even if they were tiny startups, or, you know, maybe seeing that they were interesting potential competitors. Those were companies that were using Facebook's data. That's how Facebook could see how well they were doing because even remember, think of dating app, you know, log in with your Facebook profile. And then you get access to all of these people, So it's three. They were services that were built on top of Facebook. Millions and millions of services are built on top of Facebook so they can see what people are doing. And they see a competitors and then they might say, and they have said, and it's not hypothetical in the documents show they came to lots of different companies and said, You know, versions of Will shut you down. If you don't sell to us, you know, we we have the power to do that, because if we take away our data, you live and die by our data. So there's questions about our aren't those anti competitive tact and they were in they? They were in effect to doing what you just described. They did. I mean, there was even a lawsuit. It's got to be out of bounds. Well, it's certainly that would be one of the more like clear cut definitions of an anti competitive business practice.

"And over the summer, she was surprised to get a check in the mail from the United States Treasury, followed by a letter signed by President Donald J. Trump, and he says The White House. Washington July 31st Your economic impact payment has arrived. My fellow American. It was a stimulus check for $1200. And I thought I can't believe it. They're sending it to me. Why E mean, it's crazy, isn't it? It's crazy, she says, because she is not entitled to that money. The only people eligible for stimulus checks are U. S citizens and individuals that for tax purposes, the iris calls resident aliens. Suzanne. Weak force is neither of those now. Previously, the U. S government said the reason many non citizens mistakenly received checks is they filed incorrect tax returns that made them appear to be American. But weak force does not file a U. S tax return. Asked about this by NPR, The Iris now acknowledges that some non Americans erroneously receive stimulus money through no fault of their own. I'm just upset. I love American. This is so wrong because I saw that the number of people were being evicted every month in Chicago, for instance, and I thought One of those families would have needed this stimulus check. Why should a Swedish citizen living abroad received $1200? The iris now says it mistakenly sent checks to some non citizens who receive Social Security and other federal benefits. People like WIG force. She receives a small social security payment from having worked in California for several years. And she believes that's why the iris erroneously sent her a stimulus check. I'm not going to cash it. I'm just going to leave it here. There's no way I'm going to catch this money. It doesn't belong to me. Since Congress passed its coronavirus relief package in March, the U. S government has put no mechanisms in place to prevent these mistakes from happening again. That means if a new relief plan passes in the final weeks of the Trump administration or during the Biden administration, and if it includes more stimulus payments Some of that money is again likely to mistakenly end up in mailboxes overseas. Weak force is even likely to get another check how much money is bleeding out from the Treasury Department? Because of these similares checks? I wonder, the U. S. Government cannot answer that question. The Treasury did find that as of late May, $34 million in stimulus had gone to people who filed a tax return with a foreign address. But that includes eligible people like US citizens living abroad, and it does not include citizens of other countries who received a check at a U. S address. For example, NPR interview to citizen of the Dominican Republic who was not eligible, he had got a check at his former address in Massachusetts. That $34 million also does not include people like Wig Force who got a check but don't file a U. S tax return at all. I think the poor folks in the iris don't have the bandwidth to go chasing this end. A. Kelleher is a vice president at Sprint tax, which does us tax preparation for nonresidents. It'd be great if they did, because I believe that there's millions of dollars that has gone to people that went entitled to it and that certainly not the intended recipients. Spring tax has clients from about 150 countries who mistakenly received stimulus checks. Kelleher said the most common were India, China, South Korea, Vietnam and the United Kingdom, as well as numerous nations in Latin America. It's awful when we hear of millions of dollars going into the wrong hands, but was probably within a somewhat acceptable threshold of error or margin of error. Acceptable, he said, because Congress opted for speed over accuracy when it flooded the U. S economy with money last spring. Many non Americans who received a check and error are now trying to return it because they worry it will jeopardize their visa or immigration status. But there's equally thousands that were saying Well, if they were silly enough to make this mistake, it's they're mistaken. I'm not gonna give it back until they ask for it. Van Shockley falls in that category. He's 74 years old and was born in Pennsylvania. But he moved to Australia after becoming disillusioned with US politics in the 19 sixties. I had always been depressed when JFK was killed. Just couldn't get over that. So I started looking for someplace else Start all over. So he gave up his U. S citizenship and has now been an Australian citizen for about a half century. His last trip to the U. S. Was 40 years ago. But he to receive stimulus money even though he's not eligible for it and does not file a U. S tax return. That was a waste thing ever. I check the mail and pulled out a check. Federal Reserve Treasury thingamajig along with the eagle on that it's made out to me. What's this from America? What the hell's going on here? Why am I getting a check from the government? Just like Suzanne Wig Force in Sweden? Van Shockley in Australia suspects he mistakenly got a check because he receives Social Security from having worked in the U. S before moving overseas. First, I thought it was a joke. Then I went down to the bank gonna says Can you do some way of verifying that this is legal and the girl come back after five minutes. That says it's legal. You got the milling. Thank you, Bam! I didn't ask for the money. I didn't expect any money. But as soon as I got us stuck into the bank, he ain't getting it back. Shockley attributes the mist ake two U. S. Government incompetence, complete stupidity. They're just not doing their job properly. U S. Treasury officials said they are quote continuing to assess the accuracy of the stimulus program and the recovery efforts for any erroneous payments. In the meantime, they told NPR the Iris is relying on individuals to voluntarily return these payments. Sasha favor NPR news..

You don't have to educate me about the Tuskegee experiment. I've heard about it since I was three years old. My point is, if you've ever had a medical situation in your life, I'm pretty sure you've gone to the doctor. If you had a family member that has experienced cancer If you had a child born in your family, you have gone to a doctor. And that doctor, you say doctors and scientists and that doctor was giving you the best that they had to offer based on science. Yes, there has been and from coming from me.

Tuskegee experiment is the way y'all know about that's the one y'all run with this, countless others trust me, but with that being said You do trust the doctors and you do trust size?

"Bite has them and asked for this $5 billion payment Trump talks about you know, it turns out that this is kind of a tax that they were going to be paying any way to the U. S government And there's some sort of vague, nebulous promised that they'll come up with Ah kind of some kind of Patrick chaotic education program, whatever that may mean for for us kids, So so he's gone. He's got actually very little of what he pushed. So if if you're concerned with national security This deal doesn't really do it for you. And so as you widen the aperture a little bit and think about this from the context of ongoing tensions, ongoing negotiations around trade and the broader relationship when the U. S with between the U. S and China What does this tell you? You know if you're a Chinese company, and you're thinking about making an investment in the U. S, you're thinking strategically, indeed, about your global position. Or if you're an American company now and you're thinking about you know the China market and how you should be positioned there. They should really worry you because Because it has been so unpredictable. I mean, we're in. We're in uncharted territory. There are no that there are no real rules, at least under the old system. The Silvia's system this sort of you know the screening process. It was somewhat predictable. You knew what you were getting into. A lot of deals didn't get done because companies thought themselves well, It's not going to get through the U. S screening committee, so we won't fall. But this one just came right out of left field and surprise. Surprise. Everybody. And so on the other side if you're a U s tech company, what do you think about this? Well, so and actually, it's not just tech right now. There's a lot of off talk about an entity's lists of the Chinese could actually come up with a list of companies that could be subject to retribution, not necessarily US companies so that could include tech companies. But banks Trading companies. You know, China hasn't retaliated so far, because it does it really need foreign investment. It needs foreign technology, but But, you know, pushed pushed far enough, they actually could start to take action against US companies. International companies in China Wow. All right, Andy Brown. Thank you so much. Andy Brown, of course, is the editorial director for Bloomberg New Economy. He has been breaking down this deal trying to make sense of it alongside the rest of us. I have to say.

"Business Flash. Thank you so much. Charlie Pellet President. Trump has said that he'll ban social media powerhouse Tic Tac from operating United States unless there's some fundamental restructure of its business and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says the deadline is just four days from now for a read on where things stand at this point, we welcome now Jeffrey Gertz, his fellow at the Global Economy and Development Program at the Brookings Institution. So, Jeffrey, thank you so much for joining us. What do we know about where things stand right at the moment. Great but at the moment The potential deal between TIC Tac and Oracle is under review by the US government that's trying to affect Will this alleviate the national security concerns that President Trump in administration? Has raised over the past couple months. Do we know who's reviewing it? I mean, ultimately, the president himself has understand. We'll have to pass on whether to accept the deal or not, But what is the process in so far as we know The main review process is going to be done through what's known as the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States or Sofia. Isn't an interagency, The group led by Treasury Department, including Commerce State, USTR, several other government agencies that will be doing the national review, and they wouldn't make the recommendation to the president. But it's ultimately up to President whether you want to accept or not that recommendation. So take us back to first principles as it were. Geoffrey What is the problem that the United States government has with Tic tac in the United States? So there are a few different issues and I should say at the beginning, it's a bit complicated that you know the U. S. Government never officially tells us what the national security concerns are. We have to kind of gas and read between the lines. But the first issue is really on data privacy and hear the concern is will the Chinese government through? It could sort of influence on patrol over Chinese company by dance. Don't talk Have access to American citizens. Private personal data still had threw Tic Tac. Second big concern, Right do with propaganda. And what extent is the Tic tac algorithm sort of being used to either spread or suppress certain political messages. There have been concerns in the past about you know, is Tic tac hiding messages about the Hong Kong protests? For instance of the last lane the government is looking into And then I think third more generally. This is just part of a broader U. S. China Tech competition in the U. S government really try and challenge the Chinese government overhaul way over. We chat over several other kind of broader issues in this Geopolitical tech competition. And I think the TIC Tac definitely falls into that broader geopolitical fight. So as we look at a potential combination of some way, shape or form between Oracle and Tik Tak, take the two parts you mentioned separately. That is the personal data on the one hand and the algorithms on the other. Because there are reports that in fact, Tic Tac would be willing to give up control access to the personal data to Oracle under some arrangement, but not the algorithms. Yes. Well as I understand it the potential deal with Oracle. Well, basically the oracle be in charge of managing data, security and data privacy, and you should be put some controls in there to do. Check on whether the Chinese government has access to this data that should alleviate some of those concerns, at least possibly, but the deal will not involve transfer of ownership of the ticks out algorithm. This is partially because the Chinese government About such silly Kudo came out and said that the algorithm actually falls under export controls for national security. Chinese government has really crack down on velvet algorithm. It seems unlikely that control over that will be given up on DH that will remain in the hands of the bite dance Chinese owners if, In fact, the United States does not approve some sort of arrangements with Oracle. What are the implications not just for the companies involved, but more broadly for technology between the two countries. No, I don't mean interesting test case to see you know, can the U. S and Chinese governments and find compromise outcomes on these broader technological fights that had been bubbling up for the past two years are likely going toe accelerating the coming years. Letting you know Essentially up until now, both U. S. And China don't have taken pretty hard line That's been pretty hard to imagine what type of deal wouldn't allow both the U. S and Chinese governments to sign off on At the moment if historical deal goes through It looks like that's going to be the U. S government kind of backing down from some of the earlier demands with a focus on an outright sale of tic tac toe Little thing that you know, this may be In some sense is a positive sign that there are scope for compromise between the two governments. But I don't think this is the end of these technological fight and you're singing the way you put it. I mean, this is at its core. We think of it as a legal regulatory technological question, But things like this don't get resolved in Washington elsewhere. Without some politics involved and how much to senses it make for President Trump to appear to have back down with the Chinese on the virtual eve of the election. Yeah. I mean, it's going to be replenishing the scene, so we basically know that The U. S government had already rejected a very similar or set up to Oracle is now proposing, saying that wasn't going to buy the national cheer there. So if the Trump administration now turns around and says, yes, this field goes ahead. You know, I think you have to wonder how much of that is the Trump administration, kind of friendliness and outside in relationship with Oracle and its owners, how much others were that oracles?.

"Striving to get all these documents are two documents in particular we were not able to get one dates to nineteen sixty nine we made a fully request of the U. S. government department of justice for documents on homes com or they say they're two documents we can give you one nineteen sixty nine thirty five pages one nineteen eighty seven which is eighty seven pages so over a hundred pages of documents created decades after the war on Tom's cobbler that the government wouldn't produce throw for a request we make an appeal of that request and they denied the request they will usually give you extradited our redacted versions of documents they would give us nothing not even pages with everything blacked out just nothing and then when we renew the request years later they said well we don't even have these documents anymore we don't know what so why would they be creating a document on com or as late as nineteen eighty seven is it possible he was still alive well he was he was born in nineteen oh one so in nineteen eighty seven he would've in eighty six years old so it's completely possible he could have been a life and the most benign explanation I can think of for for for creating documents that many years later about somebody whose dad was a subsequent trial of **** I know I mention nineteen sixty nine during that year there were some Nord Hausen officials going on trial these were **** who worked at that second rocket facility I mentioned in central Germany they were going on trial in nineteen sixty nine so it's possible there's a thirty five page document all about com or there but no again why would that exist if calmer well we're just being mentioned in the footnotes and why couldn't it be produced to us and in nineteen eighty seven there could have been something else going on that that you know that the war ended in nineteen forty five but the ramifications of the war obviously continued for decades later but I'm I'm very troubled by the idea that there are documents still be withheld and and how do you view this as a as an American that fits your government made this deal with the devil as he'd be describing the subtitle of the book I mean do you do you think is old yes is it is that it could be justified again the enemy of the my enemy is my friend yeah and that that's a key question in the book and I talk about this at some length it is troubling deal but I have to think that it's a good deal well made and well intended you know the I don't I don't like to second guess people that were making you know decisions like this on the ground in a minute in the moment and I can say with some confidence that if we hadn't made this deal we would have gotten the Rocketeer if we didn't have the rocket team I think the outcome of the Cold War would be the question mark the geopolitical landscape might be vastly different today than it than it otherwise would have been than it otherwise it is in other words if the Americans hadn't taken hold of calmer and von Braun and Dornberger then the Soviets would happen and I mean they were they were close behind the west in developing a bomb so imagine if they had a delivery system we got most of the German nuclear scientists but the reason the that the Soviets had a successful nuclear weapons tests in nineteen fifty three as early as they did is because their lead scientist was a **** a former non so yeah I it's it's a troubling deal but I probably would have done the same thing if I were faced with the same circumstances and of course I'm glad we won the Cold War obviously but I'm I'm wondering what would this have done any or hasn't done any damage to US Israel relations the idea that the American save these horrible monsters from the hangman's noose it remember you know I don't know the answer to that question that's a good question I don't think this this incident has I don't think it's a widely known enough yet to this book came out in October it's being well received people that read it love it but we we haven't really gotten official reaction from government yeah so it's too soon to tell maybe about from the Holocaust museum in Washington of the Holocaust museum in Washington was extremely helpful in research they have a great library there and there had arc of this wrong Coleman I became friendly with him that they were just fantastic and providing information I haven't gotten runs reaction to the book so so all right reaction from Mary Jean stay put on the other side will open up the phone lines take questions and comments here are I can Tina Turner hockey talk woman taking is into the break on coast to coast AM.
