Does Sean Penn Want to Go to Nuclear War With Russia?

"Let's listen to Sean Penn and what he said about nuclear war with Russia. This is very alarming, but it's also revealing. Listen. Well, even countries that have nuclear weapons can remain intimidated to use them. And we're seeing that now with our own country. And I fear what that legacy is going to be. We don't know one wants to see a nuclear company. I don't want to see one. Nobody at the same time, if only one bully is going to be able to use those weapons as a threat. We think what we're doing. Wait a minute. So Sean Penn wants to go to nuclear war with Russia? We shouldn't be intimidated from using our nukes, but what? What is going on? What are these far left radicals doing advocating war with Russia? And then think about it. The neocons, they always want a war. They want to go to war with Sweden. And the never trumpers. This is we need to go, we're not doing enough. We got to go. What's the one thing they all have in common? The America first agenda. They are collectively responding to what Donald Trump introduced in a powerful way. Put in this country first. Worried about our interests before we worry about Uganda's. Or Yugoslavia's. Or yes, Ukraine. Put in America first. Upends the globalist agenda. That's why they despise Trump.

"uganda" Discussed on Real Dictators

"It's November night in 1956, in the British protectorate of Uganda, in the heart of East Africa. On the northern shore of Lake Victoria sits the city of Kampala. Tucked away in its back streets is a gymnasium. In the tropical air two boxes slugging out. They smack worn leather gloves into each other, harder and harder. Over and over. Staying just within the parameters of the queensberry rules. Amid the smell of sweat beneath the pool of cigarette smoke. The spectators yell themselves. The two men trying to beat the living daylights out of each other a heavyweights. Powerful punches. Both trying out for the Uganda amateur boxing association championships. The first, Les peach. There's a white colonial police officer. The other man a few years younger is an army sergeant. African black, over from the barracks in Ginger. There have been a number of police contestants. Peach is well known. His opponent, however, is an enigma. The one thing marks him out. Even by the standards of the weight division, he's huge, an absolute man mounted 6 four maybe 6 6 in height, weighing in at nearly 300 pounds, as wide as a door frame, with a thick muscular neck, tribal scars and fists the size of shovels. Once more, shuffling around in black trunks and casually half laced boots. He carries himself with an extraordinary confidence. As an aura about him, a raw magnetism, something almost Supernatural. Stories of his unit's patrols in the bush come with descriptions of the young man's utter ruthlessness towards the rebels they've been hunting down. But it's not the young man's night. He's forced to the ropes and pummels. It topples back onto the canvas. To a rule and a shower of beer, peach is proclaimed Victor. But his opponent's time will come. The vanquished boxer will ultimately become Ugandan heavyweight champion. By his own estimation he will hold the title unbroken for a full 9 years. Ordinarily, this would rank as a crowning achievement. But here, it would be but a footnote to an extraordinary life. But this young sergeant this young heavyweight will one day become not just the armies field marshal. But his country's leader. President of Uganda. But the peak of his powers he will be viewed by many as the most famous, most infamous person ever to have come out of the African continent. His name is sergeant idi. Idi Amin..

Renewable Energy Can't Be Achieved by a Ban on Fossil Fuels

"Wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal, which you should all be aware of. How destructive the green activists the fanatics of our day are to poor countries. This is by the president, Yoweri Museveni. President of Uganda, Africa can not sacrifice its future prosperity for western climate goals. The continent should balance its energy mix not rush straight toward renewables. Even though that will likely frustrate some of those gathering, at the global climate conference in Glasgow. I'll continue reading from it, but I want you to understand the issue it's very simple. The west got its prosperity thanks to fossil fuels. No fossil fuel, no energy, no west. Fossil fuels have been one of the greatest blessings in the history of mankind. What the selfish, rich white. That's really who it's ironic that I would use the term, but that's who it is. Selfish, rich, bored, that's incredibly important. That's who make up the environmentalist movement. Selfish, rich, white, bored, people, who need some meaning in their lives, and saving the world is as meaningful as it gets, isn't it? So if you destroy the western west's economy, and make impossible for poor countries to develop. What the hell? Their wealthy enough to withstand it. And I make them feel great to boot. So we're telling countries that now want to get wealthy like the west. You can't. We used fossil fuels. You can't. You and Uganda? You need wind turbines.

How many have professors like that all the time. Of course you do what do you do. You have then all of a sudden you have to ask yourself a question. Which is the most important question that a lot of uganda ask in the next year. Which is this do. I challenge this professor and record this professor while. I challenge them and put at risk. Your great now. This is the question. Isn't it which is do you take a bold step to try to do what you know is right even though you might pay a price or consequence for that now. A lot of you've already made that decision. How many of you are like. I don't care i'm going to do the right thing now. Not every hand goes up because some people like. I don't know i might actually lie right. That the greatest thing ever and that there's unlimited amount of genders whatever and now. I'm not saying there's a right or wrong answer to this right because my friend and i respect him a lot ben. Shapiro has a different opinion on this. He thinks that grades of the most important thing you know lying. Your way through college is important. My belief is different. I would rather have a generation of courageous students. Then a bunch of a student nerds that lied their way through college. So they'll get a good grade. I would rather have a generation of young people that are stepping up and doing the right

"If you look at what country has embraced the vaccine the most and the lockdowns the most and the masks the most israel would be the top of the list yet. Their rates for cases are worse than almost any other country on the entire planet per capita.

Look at the indian government's own website you do know that they say in their treatment portfolio. Just go take some ivermectin and hydroxy klaren india's. Kobe rates have plummeted. What's the lowest cove rates in the entire. World is in america. not even close. Is that mexico. No the lowest as of a couple of months ago and it's probably changed as uganda. Why is it that african countries that take antivirals with their breakfast food literally because malaria is so widespread. I don't mean that as a pejorative. it's just you take anti antivirals all the time you get bit by a wrong insect in africa just injured life. Do constantly drinking tonic water constantly. Taking anti-malarials why is that. Why is that. Why is there not been a massive coverted death surge beyond anything that we would have expected in the poorest countries with the worst healthcare systems like africa.

"Which i phone really really fascinating was that they had over ten thousand signatures from from people from religious institutions to people from Education wise that who were all objecting to such languaging. And i think that your question assault really points out to the the importance that we rarely gave language within policy framework and and the wisdom. We'd certain language that is used for certain things opens up discourse around that particular issue for example this is specifically to sexuality. And i think that your question around the language and the framing and the fear around died and and i think an important paper which is which is and in. An article is for From sleepytime lee. And i think that was the emcee. I don't want to do that. Because my ancestors will be mad if i might add it but the article Out of the closet. Unveiling sexuality discuss in uganda so and it stems from that case of The equal opportunities commission when they were being asked do have like a sexual minorities among the marginalized within their framework and how that discourse on sexuality or so then brought in this particular the which is framed now as the gay agenda or the the need to up the children. So i think that that there is A lot of power when it comes to sexuality education which is largely around preferences in sexuality diesel solidly about around intercourse outside of sex as biologically described within that scientific framework. And i think that's sexuality often moves away from the ways in which our front has been rejected in the sense that they're teaching youth things where and i think i'll borough from for phase conceptualization of A banking system of education so the banking system is where where the teaching you to be disposed depositaries like they just throw knowledge at you swallow. But when they're throwing knowledge that is around sexuality and they're saying or these particular pods or pregnancy or these days. The option of bush shown or like when it comes to intimacy around your body in an ascending your body then that that that framing of education doesn't surpass because then it it moves away from the books it moves away from science and it becomes a practical thing and when it becomes a project costing me about bush if you tell if you if you told me about like sex short says if she told me about Sexual practices or pleasure then that becomes personalized so when that is the lies so that the lung that then the language of sexuality education becomes a threat rudder if we go the language of a national sex framework then it becomes around Sex in the biological sense..

So my sister. And i were probably the youngest americans in the country without an american guardian. My mom of course could have left but of course she wasn't going to So while we were there we were the only americans on campus. Everyone else was from australia.

What belongs to americans and what belongs to the school because we live in university housing and so not everything that was in. Our house was ours so they had a clipboard. And they were like okay. So what belongs to you and my mother would say this schools and then my mother said no. It's mine so the soldier was there and my mother brought out her finished passport and she. She had grown up very poor in finland. So i know as a missionary you're not supposed to care about worldly goods But you know. She grew up so poor her mother would stand in on cow dung to warm feet when she watched the family. Cows in my mom grew up without indoor plumbing no indoor water. She was hauling the water. So my mom was like someone's gonna come and take our things. This is not okay so instead of saying well. Let's be let's be. Let's be very like careful with the soldier Instead got a little aggressive and she was like i'm finished. She cannot take my things and so the soldier was like well. What about this.

People died. and that's a really big difference between the numbers but so although people in the west knew about idi amin know i watched a lot of the newscasts about it. there wasn't a lot Kind of accountability to who who was being victimized and why so what would happen as people would disappear Then get on the radio and he was once saying you know. I'm paraphrasing. what my parents remember. You know he was saying. Don't blame the government when your husband doesn't come home because he ran off with another woman basically argument and so he would have all these really outlandish things that he would say. And so it's very easy. You know my parents say laugh or cry on so it was very easy to laugh but because he was so outlandish she was also able to do all these horrific things so while we were there You know obviously wants. My parents got a read on the political situation. They didn't know much when they went. Which is kinda Talking in the age of internet how you can go somewhere not know much about the country but my mom quickly realized you know this is not a safe situation and she was trying to look for a way out for a long time and my dad's feeling was if ugandans are here. You know we're not going to be the kind of missionaries that turn tail and run so there's a real conflict within my parents About staying or not going saying in uganda but interestingly enough both times. We have encounters with idi. Amin my is not present so so in some ways he was the one who is like. You know. we're going stay. We're going to stick it out..

Nobody wants because it was tucked up in the jungle so we had a jungle that completely surrounded our house. it wasn't a large jungle. I realize now as an adult it was a pretty small habitat but it was a really diverse habitat so we had all kinds of snakes. Mongoose monkeys on wildcats jennifer cads seven.

How vaccine inequality is endangering the world

"With that anniversary one year ago today when the World Health Organization officially declared the covert 19 outbreak, a worldwide pandemic when a year on and 2.6 million people have died worldwide, and the economy is in tatters. There is also hope, because Kobe vaccination drives under way more than 100 countries with more than 300 million doses of ministered, but who gets vaccinated, for example, there around 80 million refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide. Will they be included in vaccination plans where they live? Filippo Grandi is the U. N High Commissioner for Refugees and his current in Uganda. When I spoke to him, he started by telling me what impact the pandemic and lockdowns have had on refugees. Where I think the impact is severe and will be even more severe is more on the economic side and in lockdowns, which prevail all over the world. We've seen an escalation off poverty if you wish in refugee and displaced community all over the world from Lebanon, Toe black in America, the Venezuelans toe Afghans in South Asia and so forth, So this is really the key challenge that we have to face now. We know that the key to getting out of the pandemic. His vaccination aren't refugees at the end of the list of people who are going to get vaccinated or too often, well, that was very much our concern, especially refugees. Refugees are not nationals off the country's they're in, and we were worried that because of that they would be marginalized. You know, there's been some good developments. I am in Uganda is speaking to you from Kampala and here, for example, today the vaccination begins. I was with the acting prime minister this morning He was going to be vaccinated and he was keen to tell me refugees will be included. There's no question about that. You can the host 1.5 million refugees. Almost the pandemic has the underlying the inequalities that disparities Throughout the world on one of those is that the richer Western countries of vaccinating at a much higher rate than poorer countries, and yet so many of the world's refugees, Aaron places Like where you are right now, you can do that slower roll out in places like Uganda is undoubtedly going to effect refugees, isn't it? You're absolutely right. George. Vaccination programs have to exist and to be rolled out to include refugees, and this is where really the enormous inequality of the international system has appeared. Very carries. The tent of March is the first day that you can to a nation of more than 40 Million people is receiving its first vaccine when in rich countries. This has been going on for several months. So this inequality is blatant. This needs to be corrected. We are active as an organization in those initiatives that aimed at securing a minimum amount of doses. For poor countries and our role there is to ensure that some of those does is go to the refugees as well. But frankly speaking, that effort is not enough to correct that huge imbalance which is really short sighted. It's not only wrong, it's shortsighted. It's a bit like refugees and nationals in the country if people in poor countries do not get vaccination. This is a global issue. It will backfire everywhere else so then more vaccines and needed and more needs to be done to deal with, as you say, the social impact of the pandemic on Refugees in particular. He's a difficult questions, and there aren't presumably easy solutions to them. But what are a couple of things that could should be done to make progress in this sense from the very beginning off the pandemic? I've reached out personally to the leadership of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. These institutions have led The establishment off economic rescue packages for countries impacted by Corbett and lockdowns, and my message to them has bean first of all to accelerate. The disbursement of those packages so that this country's are more protected, but also to ensure that vulnerable groups are included actually are considered as a factor to increase those packages. In other words, take Uganda again. Uganda is negotiating. If I understand with the I m F one such package and the message that I will pass through the eye, meth and other similar institutions is remembered. Uganda has what 40 45 million people. It's national population. It has almost 1.5 million refugees. These needs to be factored in, especially in countries like you can that that are very inclusive that include refugees in education programs in health programs that extend to them efforts to create livelihoods. This additional burden that these countries have needs to be considered when this economic packages are rolled out. This is not always the case. Look at Lebanon, for example, where one in four people is a refugee. This huge political tension in Lebanon over this refugee issue. I'm very worried that rescue packages being rolled out and Lebanon has many challenges may not include refugees, and this would be catastrophic for this huge, vulnerable population in that particular country, And this example is valid in other countries as well. So yes, More complex, I would say even then the vaccination inclusion.
