UN General Assembly: US-China tensions flare over coronavirus

"Pandemic is a test of international cooperation. One, the U. N secretary general says the world is failing is NPR's Michelle Kellerman reports that failure Was on display at the ongoing General Assembly. The secretary general is trying to use this virtual General Assembly to get countries to work together to fight the pandemic and many other global challenges. But one Security Council debate showed just how hard this will be. You know shame on each of you. I am astonish, and I'm disgusted. That's the U. S ambassador to the U. N. Kelly Craft accusing her colleagues, though not naming, which ones of playing politics with covert 19 members of the council who took this opportunity to focus on political grudges rather than the critical issue at hand. My goodness Craft defended the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the World Health Organization and said China should be held to account for quote, unleashing this plague onto the world. China's Ambassador John Joon, says the US is just trying to blame others for its own failings. The United the States has been spread in political virus on this information. And for 18 confrontation on division. Up to that point, it had been a rather dry Security Council meeting about global governance in the wake of covert 19. There was a lot of talk about multilateralism and a few veiled swipes at the Trump Administration's America first approach, Kraft said. The U. S has given you n agencies $900 million to counter the pandemic and compared that to others on the Security Council. NYU's year 4.6 million South Africa 8.4 million Indonesia five million. The US does give more to the U. N than other, says Richard Gallon of the International Crisis Group. But this is not just about money. Foreign diplomats had grown accustomed to trump attacking. Yuen arrangements like the Paris climate deal on mechanisms like the Human Rights Council. But they were genuinely shocked the Washington would walk away from the W. H O during a global pandemic. Speaking via Skype, he said diplomats are worried about what he calls a nasty fight between the US and China as Beijing tries to increase its influence in the world body on a day to day basis, Chinese diplomats in New York are often Very assertive, increasingly hard line and sometimes bullying colleagues from smaller countries. The reality is that for most members of the U. N, neither the US nor China Is offering an attractive vision of the future of multilateralism and the world needs multilateral solutions on a range of issues beyond the pandemic, says Latisha Courtois, who represents the International Committee of the Red Cross. She's raising the alarms about the forgotten conflicts from Yemen to this, the hell region of Africa has a triple threat of climate conflict and called it mansions. And for that they need to be a collective approach. The U. N Secretary General Antonio Guterres made the same appeal all week, reminding diplomats that the World Sol a previous period of fragmentation a century ago. The result was the first World War. Followed by the seconds. Over. 19 is casting a dark shadow across the world. And he called the band eh Mika warning that must spur US toe action. Michelle Kelemen. NPR news, the State Department

C.I.A. Operatives in the Early Years of the Cold War

"Scott Anderson joins us now from the catskills. He is a contributing writer for the New York, Times magazine, and the author of many books. His latest is called the quiet Americans four CIA spies. Of the Cold War tragedy in three acts, Scott Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks much nice to be here. So you are allowed on the podcast to talk about your previous book Lawrence in Arabia which came out in twenty thirteen hand, which of course feels like now centuries ago which makes it clear to our listeners are longtime listeners that this is not your first. Book. Involving spies I'm curious what what's the draw for you but I think Speiser inherently fascinating in not just to an awful lot of people and of thought about what is I think it's the the allure of having a secret life. I think that I think that for an awful lot of people this idea that you have a whole separate identity is really fascinating New People. What I was drawn to in both the Lawrence and with in the quite America's the foresee a officers I follow is that in both cases, this was at a time when individuals out in the field had a tremendous freedom of action. So it wasn't. People sitting behind desks following policy that they're actually out in the field doing crazy stuff. You also have a personal connection to the story right in terms of what your father did for living you talk a little bit about that. Sure. My father was agricultural adviser for the Agency for International Development, which was a branch of the State Department. I grew up in. East. Asia in in Korea and Taiwan as Indonesia. and. So this was the nineteen fifties, nineteen sixties when I came along American government workers abroad often in those sorts of countries often were two hats whatever their official job was my father's job as agriculture adviser but it was also part of this great anti Communist crusade was happening around the world. So the upfront hearts and minds, soft power aspect of my father's work was working on agrarian reform in line with countries like these countries were were the land was was had been controlled infra centuries by all darkies. But the the more hard power in the darker side of what my father was doing was was setting up rural vigilante squads, home guard militias to watch over the local populace and to make sure that they weren't being swayed by the communist in certainly in countries like Taiwan or South Korea. If you were exposed or accused of being a leftist, your life was not going to go. Well, you know I'm now getting a sense of why one of the four characters in your previous book was an agronomist perhaps. That's right. Yeah it's well It's it's an interesting thing because. It just for national development was often used by the CIA as a cover because. Are Out, in the field, they're not, they're not saying, I'm destined to capitol there often out among the local population and probably have a better sense of what's happening. Outside what you one thing I'll say I've noticed over time in different countries. I've been almost invariably the ex Patriot community that knows best what's happening in the country are tend to be the people are out in the field in often the Middle East is the oil guys. They have a sense much more than than people sitting around in the capital. Let's start with frank wizner. The first person you mentioned, and this is not the the first book to be written at least in part about wisner who was he and what made him. So central to the story wizards amazing Turkey was a corporate lawyer who was working at a Wall Street firm when even before World War Two broke out and he quit his law firm to join the navy, he ended up being an operative for the office to teacher services, which is the the wartime intelligence agency of the of the army that they owe asset kind of the precursor to the CIA. That's right. That's right and he ends up being A. Kind of the first American to to to witness. The Soviet takeover of country in Eastern Europe, and this was in Romanian to summer of nineteen forty. Four So full year before the war ended and a wizard was on the ground as a as an oasis operative and just watch the strong arm tactics did really a matter of weeks led the Soviets to take control the country he and he was sending cables back to Washington telling telling them what are so good allies doing he sees the say he has the same experience in eastern Germany at the end of. The war in watching the way the Soviets for taking over, he goes back to his law from for couple of years for the complete unhappy, and then when the CIA starts up in nineteen forty seven, they have this idea that they wanna start a covert operations branch of of the CIA called the Office of Policy Coordination and frank listeners chosen to head that the name was deliberately chosen to be really boring. That's right and in fact, the name itself, the Office of policy coordination was was so top secret that even you can't even say the name out loud for twenty five years. So in that role wizner e created, what what he called the mighty world, which was this vast covert operations umbrella of a operating throughout the world and everything from hard power aspects of it like dropping dropping partisans behind the iron curtain to everything to cultural stuff voice. Of America. Radio Free Europe that was all came out of the Office of Policy Coordination.

NASA and US Space Force team up for planetary defense

"NASA is joining forces with the Department of Defense's Space force on a number of fronts, including looter exploration through the Artemus program. For more we turn to the KCBS Ring Central News Light and talk with CBS News military expert Dr Jeffrey McCausland, a retired U. S Army Colonel, Colonel. Thanks as always, for being with us this afternoon. It's great to be with you. Let's talk a little bit about NASA's history with the military. It's a long one. It certainly is. This is Ava knew really of an agreement that was done about 19 years ago between then and NASA and U. S Space Command because Space force had not back been created. The collaboration occurs on such things that space policy research technology and the protection the planet from has was objects such as asteroids. Talk a little bit about the newly formed space force and how it will interact with NASA. I think that's way to describe. It might be a metaphor between the Department of Defense and the State Department. Space Force eyes, obviously there to secure space for the peaceful operations of the United States, its allies and others. And to protect the U. S interests in outer space. I think we need to think about this in terms of the domains of warfare, which traditionally had been three air, Land and sea. And now more more. We're saying two new domains of warfare. Appearing. One, of course, is cyber and second in space because of our dependency on space and a growing concern that a number of countries around the world China is a very good example. Have been testing in I satellite weapons testing lasers. Testing the use of cyber weapons to hack into space systems like Space horse there to provide security so that NASA has a scientific diplomatic organization can conduct peaceful exploration of outer space. In the term. That's I believe you might have mentioned Is that certainly in their news release today, planetary defense that really is, is less about aliens coming to get us in more about protecting the planet from asteroids, for example. That's right. I mean, we got a lot of things going on. You know, I think right now, would you believe that an asteroid is supposed to come fairly close to the planet Earth the day before upcoming presidential election now? All predictions are little cause no harm. But just monitoring objects like that, as they moved through outer space is one thing that NASA does, and we'll do that in collaboration with the air Force now in space Force, now, brother And keep them appraised so they can't coordinate their activities. When you talk about attacks on satellites. What What kind of arsenal is in the defense? I mean, how do you prevent or or Interrupted in progress. Certainly you can maneuver satellites. Certainly you monitor the launch of other nations satellites as they moved through outer space. To keep track on research on and on and they're testing of analyst satellite weapons and what they're doing. And the last not least not unlike nuclear weapons. You have to have a certain deterrents aspect of all this. The other side knows if you attack my satellites, I'm going to attack your satellites either in doing physical harm or attacking him using cyber

Smoke starting to clear out; Seattle air quality improving

"Turning to the weather. Tonight, some people in western Washington are finally getting a breath of fresh air. Because the air quality is improving across the Puget Sound region. Check out this map from the state Department of Ecology. It shows the air quality in our area improving ranging from good To unhealthy for sensitive groups. Let's get over to Shannon O'Donnell Mohr Rain this weekend, Shannon and what a breath of fresh air literally right so nice to see it. We've got our smoke cleaner at this point rolling through. It started last night. It continues right now, The biggest left over. Part of this is going to be the heavy rain at times. It's not the drizzle. We had a couple of days ago that just served a soap that smog you later make it sticky. This is the real deal that will help clean things out. Also the important factor the wind. We needed something to stir something up. So you can see that's happening out there tonight as well. With the breeze picking up the chance for lightning and hail, which had been pretty dominant here earlier in the game has lifted for the most part, everything settling down. You can see that we have a couple of slightly heavier showers, but nowhere near to the intensity we did earlier this evening. Most of those around Montesano and then back between two common Olympia. You've really had some heavy rain there around like still coming back toward DuPont Lacey into the north and also a pocket of leftover heavier showers around Stanwood and Camino Island.

Activists, Anna Arnold Hedgeman

"Today we're talking about a trail-blazing political activist and educator. She was the first black woman to be a member of a oral cabinet in New York City and the only woman on the administrative committee for the nineteen sixty three march on Washington. Let's talk about Anna. Arnold. Henchmen. Anna was born in eighteen ninety nine in Marshall Town. Iowa. Her family later moved to a NOCA- where they were the only black family in the community. In Nineteen Eighteen Anna graduated from high school and enrolled in Hamline University. It was there that she heard a lecture by w e boys and was inspired to pursue a career in education. In nineteen twenty two Anna was the first African American to graduate from HER UNIVERSITY After graduation unable to find a teaching job in Saint Paul Public schools because she was black and found a teaching job but historically, black school in Mississippi called Rust College. On her train ride down south to her new job in Mississippi Anna, had her first experience with Jim. Crow segregation laws a train conductor told her that when the train reached Illinois had to sit in the overcrowded colored section and not in the dining car white people sat. Anna spent two years at rust college before turning to Minnesota. Unable to find a teaching job after once again, facing racial discrimination, she switched careers. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, and became an executive director of the black. Branch of the Young Women's Christian, association or the YWCA. She continued her executive role for twelve years helping to develop various international programs and education. In nineteen thirty, three Anna married folk musician merit a henchman. In nineteen forty, four Anna was appointed executive director at the F. E. P. C.. The national. Council for a Permanent Fair Employment Practices Committee. She spearheaded the fight against employment discrimination. From nineteen, fifty, four to nineteen fifty eat anna served in the cabinet of Robert F Wagner Junior then New York mayor. She was the first african-american and first female member of a mayoral cabinet. For the next few years she worked in a variety of roles including as a columnist as well as as a public relations consultant. In one thousand, nine, fifty, three Anna spent three months in India as next leader for the State Department. She also unsuccessfully ran for Congress in one thousand, nine, hundred sixty and for New York City Council president in Nineteen. Sixty five. One of Anna's most famous feats was her role in the nineteen, sixty, three march on Washington. We hold these choose to be self-evident. That, all men are created. Was the only woman on the administrative committee working with civil rights leaders, Martin Luther King, junior, Bayard Reston. And Eighth Phillip Randolph. Mobilize people to attend to arrange transportation logistics and to organize food and water for attendees fell on Anna's pleat because King Randolph and the other men she wrote for carrying on all of their regular responsibilities and it was difficult to get them to the meetings. Shortly before the march. Anna was angry when she saw that no women were included as speakers instead randolph was planning to briefly mention some black women activists in his speech although Anna strongly urged for women to be included a speakers on the program her calls were largely dismissed. In the end as a compromise, daisy beats was allowed to speak at the end of the march but her allotted speech time was significantly shorter than all the other male speakers. Anna later captured in her autobiography a moment during the March as she sat in front of the steps of the Lincoln. Memorial. I thought of the one, hundred, eighty, thousand Negro soldiers and the twenty nine thousand black seamen who had moved in at the crucial moment to win the war and save the fragile union she wrote. Most of the two hundred and fifty thousand people present could not know of these men for the history books available to Americans have failed to record their story. In the Nineteen Seventies Anna continued her work as an author and lecturer in the US and abroad. She wrote two books about her life's work. The trumpet of sounds in Nineteen, sixty four and the gift of chaos in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, seven. Anna was honored for her working race relations by various organizations throughout her life and was awarded honorary doctorate degrees from both Howard and Hamline University's. She also received the Pioneer Woman Award in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, three from the New York State Conference on Midlife and older women. Anna died in nineteen ninety she was ninety years old.

"us state department" Discussed on WRVA

"The program. We've got more problems trying to cross the border. Yeah. And some people walls are immoral. Let's tear down all the walls. According to Robert, Francis beta bozo. And we'll hit that at the bottom of this half hour, we'll have an update, but I want to draw your attention to a column which has blockbuster when you get to the heart and soul of it of John Solomon investigative reporter and executive vice president of the hill because if you were called last week, we had the nine and a half minute press conference if you will, of Robert Mueller and all of a sudden, the mullahs report never delivered. What the left was telling us he was going to deliver now. That's the fourth time now that investigations have come to the same conclusion, and that is no Russia conspiracy. No Russia can. Collusion of any type. No obstruction of Justice, and it was a huge massive letdown expose. But we've been saying it's nothing but fake news conspiracy theories frauds. The news media, that has been sold lazy and fixated on being an extension of all, things extreme radical socialist democrat, you know, literally caught with their hands in the cookie jar running advance and advancing the lies advancing the hoax advancing, the conspiracy theory, anyway, so. Muller gives us nine and a half minute speech and he says, well, we couldn't indict the president because of Justice department policy and the issue of whether a sitting president can or cannot be indicted, leaving a clear implication. Well, we might have mayo. But we can't say but there's a possibility yet when you look at the fact that there's no underlying crime. The president was open in his criticisms of people like rod Rosenstein at times, and he fired Komi Komi deserved it. And he could've at anytime have fired Robert Muller himself under article to legally. He had the legal authority to fire Muller, and there was severe conflicts of interest, the day before Muller became the special counsel, begging Donald Trump of the job as the FBI director, and then he got appointed by rod Rosenstein now is prize. They've had conflicts in the past that the golf club, the president owned, I guess. Still owns but as a private citizen, so he gives us nine and a half minute speech. It's like manna from heaven, heavily waters now have been sent to every liberal news, media mob organization and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it only lasts a couple of hours because there were multiple times multiple witnesses that heard Robert Muller's say, just the opposite. In other words, that was not a consideration for his decision. He was never going to make a decision on obstruction. It is going to present as the law requires what his findings are to the attorney general, is not the old independent counsel statute, this is now the special counsel statute, and then it would be up to the attorney general, to make a determination of any laws were broken. And in very short order the attorney general bar. The deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and the office of legal counsel concluded. No obstruc. Action Muller himself. No collusion. That was done quickly, Muller's, the Muller issue is dead. But he had to make a clarification. And frankly my interpretation of it was that attorney general bar threw him a lifeline by allowing the special counsel's office to team with the attorney general, and put out a statement that no no, no. This is what he really meant clarification because so many because he said the opposite. I got the feeling. He didn't even read the draft. It seemed like it was written by somebody else. Anyway. Now, the next step we're now, discovering, a lot of things in the so-called Muller report are absolutely false. You know, it's literally breaking and his key assertions in this document of his four hundred and forty eight pagers on not accurate at all. You know, the, the report describes Paul manafort's Ukrainian business partner as a shady individual with ties to Russian intelligence. In other words, the Muller report wanted you to believe that the Trump campaign was essentially embed with a Russian spy, John Salman breaks the story, and what do we find out that we knew it was total Bs and manafort's business. Partner was actually a sensitive intelligence source but for the US State Department, and how and why team Muller purposely deceived, the we the people is beyond my imagination. That's probably likely one of the reasons Muller doesn't dare want to go before Nadler's committee and face Jim Jordan, and Mark meadows. In fact, in this case, the guy had visited the US twice in two thousand sixteen to meet with State Department officials he regularly met with the chief political officer inside the US embassy in Kiev and Muller had access to all that information, which means that they this was a premeditated line. And yet, he cast a dark shadow on the individual and it. To present this person as an affair is actor tied to Russia. It wasn't true. And the very same plan, by the way, that was given to the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen Ukrainian peace plan. Well, that was presented to the Obama administration. Well, that context should have been in the mullahs report also because Muller's team knew it. So the another example of outright deception and just the latest in what is a pretty disturbing pattern. I mean, the separately, edited transcript from the former Trump attorney John down during a privilege routine call remember in the case there. The joint defense agreement with general Flynn and Muller conveniently leaves out, John Dowd statement, that his request is for communication was not only for the president before the country, and that he was not asking for any confidential information, which was the exact opposite of what the Muller team portrayed. An. In other words, sculptor Tori evidence was ripped right out of it, which is classic. Andrew weissmann. If you read licensed, the lie, by Sydney Powell, and you can't forget all that, and not come to a conclusion is that they purposely wrote this report, withholding knowledge, altering knowledge, just to make it look as bad as they could John Solomon broke the story is with us now. There's no way they didn't know what they were doing John because this was this was easily found out by them. Well, listen. What I have is actually a section of the mother teams files either actually Robert Muller's file include FBI interviews. The Robert mother team did with State Department officials who in, in worked on a daily basis with this Manafort, partner named Constantine. I have the cables in the emails in which State Department officials on a daily basis relayed valuable intelligence. They came in from Mr Clinton to the embassador at the State Department, at the Ukraine embassy in cab to officials in Washington, among themselves, and I have all the emails that, that Mr. reineck sent to his handlers at the State Department, and he wasn't just dealing with any old person at the State Department. He dealt with the deputy chief of mission, and the two chief political officers for the embassy. So he was such a valued asset that he was handled at the highest levels of State Department in one of the things that are in the documents really clear, the State Department officials told the F B I they made a conscious effort. But never put Mr. Clemens name in any cables for fear that WikiLeaks. We'd get a hold of him and his identity as a secret source of the United States, government would be compromised. So that was all sitting in Muller's files, no doubt about it confirmed by interviews by the markings on the documents, Robert Muller had that side of Constantine, committed life nail down and for reasons that I don't understand, and I have not been able to ask for team to reporting Robert Muller, chose to portray Constantine communiqu as a Russian, synthesis somebody who had connections to the Russian intelligence group and the Russian intelligence services, without telling this entire other story, and I think that it deserves the public. If the goal the mullahs report was to get transparency, the failure to mention this vast body of evidence portrays clinic, and a very different light trusted by the United States government giving valuable, by the way. Doesn't the same thing exists. Now, we know that Carter page was an American asset that he worked for the community. It's not. I mean I asked them straight up and he said, well, it's out there. Yeah, I was working for our side. Yeah. When that was in March, sixteen as recently as March or twenty sixteen just as he was joining the Trump campaign has now been verified by the FBI documents. I obtained and others that Carter page was working to help the FBI bring a case against Russian mobsters. So all of these missing elements, always have a common pattern the common pattern. Is they make the person close to Trump look, dirty or kosher to rush more problematic than the actual evidence. And let me give you one example from the Constantine committee documents that just gives a sense of how misleading by omission. The mullahs report is the mother report does a big makes a big deal out of the fact that Constantine committed in August of twenty sixteen came to New York. The sign. And he's not a Russian spy because he was a Russian spy. We wouldn't have given them a visa. He gets in the country. He drops off a peace plan to try to settle the Russia Ukraine crisis in chromium, and the Mahler says, oh my gosh. This is an example of him doing the Russians bidding, and he was trying to influence Trump and get Trump involved in this matter. There's only one problem with that story. If you go through the FBI documents and the and the cables, and the State Department memos that, Bob, mother possessed and is ins committed, I will ever the peace plan to the Obama administration four months before he gave it to Trump. So he gave it to both parties. And how did the Obama administration, reactive State Department official thanked him saying is very valuable information were noodling it over, if you have that part of the report all of, and you knew that part of Constantine, communiqu you'd go? Well, why am I worried about the contact with Donald Trump? It sounds like he was trying to get everybody aboard in, in solving the Ukraine crisis all of that. So mid, and it's always omitted to the negativity of the Trump campaign, the portrayal of the negative. Of the Trump campaign is always more negative, when there's no mission here. I think the American public have to ask why. Well, I mean, you, you literally, literally looked at hundreds of pages of government documents that we know that Robert Mueller possess since two thousand eighteen and they knew the, the demarcation, they knew the sensitive intelligence source that was this guy. And, you know, they know they're aware that he worked for the State Department and well informed on matters involving Ukrainian Russia, and it was such an incomplete and deceptive portrayal of, of such an important person in, and they use it in this overall narrative. Right. And to me, there's only one conclusion is they wanted it to be interpreted the wrong way, and they purposely wrote it to be interpreted the wrong way. And I honestly think it just shows. And by the way, there's a poll out that confirms this half of Americans now believe that Trump was a wick Vic. Item of a witch hunt. And, and it also confirms my belief that Robert Muller does not wanna testify and I don't think he will testify because I don't think he can sustain the questioning of Jim Jordan. Mark meadows and company. But it'll be I think came star said on your show last night, he would be a travesty for the American public, if mother got away and didn't answer these very seminal questions, I go to the credibility of his investigation, the credibility of his findings and the honesty of the work that he said, and I remember something can said last night. I just star said on your show, it was very important. He said when Bob Muller made that nine point statement, he emphasized that this investigation was built on the integrity of good people who work with him that integrity is now in question that work is now in question. Why wouldn't Bob mother come coming answer the questions that would allow us to ascend can't, well, why hired these people? He can't answered when he knew those no collusion. He can't answer. Why such a bias team? He can't answer questions. Like why did you have time for taxi medallions and Farah violations, but not Hillary dirty Russian dossier. All right. Stay right there.

"Are immoral. Let's tear down all the walls. According to Robert, Francis beta bozo. And we'll hit that at the bottom of this half hour, we'll have an update, but I want to draw your attention to a column which is blockbuster when you get to the heart and soul of it of John Solomon investigative reporter and executive vice president of the hill, because if you're call last week, we had the nine and a half minute press conference if you will, of Robert Muller, and all of a sudden, the Muller report, never delivered what the left was telling us he was going to deliver now. That's the fourth time now that investigations have come to the same conclusion, and that is no Russia conspiracy. No russia. Collusion of any type. No obstruction of Justice, and it was a huge massive letdown expose. But we've been saying it's nothing but fake news conspiracy theories frauds. The news media, that has been so lazy and fixated on being an extension of all, things extreme radical socialists democrat, you know, literally caught with their hands in the cookie jar running advance and advancing the lies advancing the hoax advancing, the conspiracy theory, anyway, so. Smaller gives us nine and a half minute speech and he says, well, we couldn't indict the president because of Justice department policy and the issue of whether a sitting president can or cannot be indicted, leaving a clear implication. Well, we might of. Well, we can't say, but there's a possibility yet when you look at the fact that those no underlying crime. The president was open in his criticisms of people like rod Rosenstein at times, and he fired Komi Komi deserved it, and he could have anytime have fired Robert Muller himself under article to legally. He had the legal authority to fire Muller, and there was severe conflicts of interest, the day before Muller became the special counsel, begging Donald Trump for the job as the FBI director, and then he got appointed by rod Rosenstein. That was this prize. They've had conflicts in the past the Gulf club. The president owned still. Loans, but as a private citizen, so it gives us nine and a half minute speech. It's like manna from heaven, heavily waters. Now been sent to every liberal news media mob organization, Democrats on Capitol Hill, but it only lasts a couple of hours because there were multiple times multiple witnesses that heard Robert Muller say, just the opposite. In other words, that was not a consideration for his decision. He was never gonna make a decision on obstruction. It is going to present as the law requires what his findings are to the attorney general, is not the old independent counsel statute, this is now the special counsel statute, and then it would be up to the attorney general, to make a determination of any laws were broken. And in very short order the attorney general bar, the deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein, and the office of legal counsel concluded no obstruction. Muller himself. No collusion. That was done quickly, Muller's, the Muller issue is dead. But he had to make a clarification. And frankly my interpretation of it was that attorney general bar threw him a lifeline by allowing the special counsel's office to team with the attorney general, and put out a statement that no no, no. This is what he really meant clarification because so many because he said the opposite. I got the feeling. He didn't even read the draft. It seemed like it was written by somebody else. Anyway. Now, the next step win out discovering, a lot of things in the so-called Mullah report are absolutely false. You know, it's literally breaking and his key is search ins in this document of his four hundred and forty eight pagers on that not accurate at all. You know, the, the report describes Paul manafort's Ukrainian business partner as a shady individual with ties to Russian intelligence. In other words, the Muller report wanted you to believe that the Trump campaign was essentially embed with a Russian spy, John Solomon, breaks the story and what do we find out that we knew it was total Bs and manafort's business. Partner was actually a sensitive intelligence source but for the US State Department, and how and why team Muller purposely deceived, the we the people is beyond my imagination. That's probably likely one of the reasons Muller doesn't dare want to go before Nadler's committee and face Jim Jordan, Mark meadows. In fact, in this case, the guy had visited the US twice in twenty sixteen to meet with State Department officials. He regularly met with the chief political officer inside the US embassy in Kiev and Muller had access to all that information, which means that they this was a premeditated line. And yet, he cast a dark shadow on this individual and. Present this person as an affair is actor tied to Russia. It wasn't true. And the very same plan, by the way, that was given to the Trump campaign in two thousand sixteen Ukrainian peace plan that was presented to the Obama administration. Well that context should have been in the Muller also because Muller's team knew it. So the another example of outright deception. And just the latest. What is pretty disturbing pattern? I mean, the separately, edited transcript from the former Trump attorney John down during a privilege routine call.

And in other words, skull, Potosi evidence was ripped right out of it, which is classic. Andrew weissmann. If you're licensed, the lie by Sydney Powell, and it can't forget all that, and not come to a conclusion is that they purposely wrote this report, withholding knowledge altering knowledge they just to make it look as bad as they could John Solomon broke the stories with us now there's no way.

"This a comment by Mexico's president about needing to deal with the root causes Oscars because most of these migrants on actually from Mexico just passing through from places like Honduras and got Amada. Yes. That's correct. The majority of migrants arriving at the US border actually coming from Central American countries. And in many cases have actually surpassed Mexican nationals arriving crossing the border, particularly the case in Guatemala, which is a nationality. This far far exceeded Mexicans arriving at the border in recent years. Now, the view of the Mexican president is that if you want to the numbers of people leaving countries like Salvador, Honduras, traveling through Mexico to get to the United States, then you need to boost economic development in Central America and create an incentive for them to stay with all the couple of days ago. The US State Department said it wanted to halt aid payments to Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador. That's right. And that's really going to create a problem not just for the Central American countries themselves, which as you mentioned are suffering from poverty and also extreme violence, which without some kind of financial support. There just aren't going to improve and migration isn't going to stop. But it's also going to create intense friction between Mexico and the United States because Mexico's policy in lupus, those policy has always been, you know, we need to support the Central American countries financially to curve migration. And so the Trump administration's moved to cut that financial aid not only goes against what these countries needs.

"Our Twitter handle is at K Q E D forum. We do welcome your involvement and again Philippian here in studio is. Director and chief operating officers. The plush ploughshares fund and also former vice president of the Asia foundation and senior former senior policy advisor at the US State Department. Well, at this point, we're not only talking about really United States relations with Saudi Arabia. What we're talking about? What may be just interested in the factory sampling? We've got an election going on in Israel next week. And we've got the a lot of steak there is real and Saudi Arabia now seem to be pretty much allies against Iran, and that's taking Israel is a nuclear power. So if Saudi Arabia becomes a nuclear power or of this helps at least move Saudi Arabia toward becoming a nuclear power. We're talking about a whole reconfiguration in the Middle East possibly and an arms race as I said before a nuclear arms race. I think that's absolutely right. And that's why what we do with respect to Saudi Arabia at my hope is that we if we decide we want to share nuclear technology. We have what's called the gold standard, which is an agreement that we. Did with the United Arab Emirates where they specifically renounced the ability to reprocess and enrich the stuff that you know, to to make the fuel that's necessary. And you know, if you don't do something like that what you're doing is as you know, the Iran deal, the United States, basically withdrew in reneged on the Iran deal. I think essentially the Iranians for the most part have held Pat because I think they're hoping that Donald Trump loses reelection, and then we can go back to the status quo, ante where the deal is basically in place. So they've been you know, despite their domestic political pressures. They've steps stood firm with this. If in fact, the one two three the that Saudi Arabia has that capability that increases more pressure on Iran for them to basically, you know, not adhere to the Iran nuclear deal, and then you're off to the races. Let's go to our callers with find out. What you our listeners have to say or asking we begin Peter with you. Good morning. You're on the air. Thank you. Thank you for this opportunity and for your. Your guest whose work is so important. I'm just wanting to struggle up publicly here with the the difficulty of looking at the fundamental hypocrisy. I believe in the present established nuclear clubs saying we're right in your wrong to new nuclear power. There may be some possibility of concession or some humility some. You know, some relief of sanctions some measure of goodwill actually as a as a mode of defense. And and shouldn't there possibly be a greater more public dialog involving North Korea? And and the public in a global discussion. How did totally denuclearize the entire world. Question is really about diplomacy, and how diplomacy might work in either of these cases, but more toward North Korea Philippine? Yes. So there's a one of our Graentiz I can international campaign against nuclear weapons has been talking about the notion of completely banning all of these weapons. And so that is a dialogue that is ongoing right now. And in fact, I can receive the Nobel peace prize two thousand seventeen for their work. I mean, there's just a small group of people in Europe, and they've had a huge impact of creating a new norm here, the two main powers United States, and what used to be the Soviet Union now Russia under Putin are moving forward with more new. That's that's that's essentially what you're what. I think your your listener has been talking about is the hypocrisy that's involved in this. I mean as part of the non-proliferation treaty nuclear non-proliferation treaty, the ones who have recognized and said they have nuclear weapons so that they eventually are going to get rid of these things, but we have yet to do. So. And the problem right now is as you as you mentioned, the United States is on par to predict to believe it's something to trillion dollars over the next thirty years to renew our nuclear weapons capabilities. I mean, it's it's really outrageous. And in this time where you know, there's so many more needs for that money..

"We need to do is make sure we have an agreed position we know will come on the support of the feature trading arrangements, and we can go to that with the the maze. People again, saying Brexit is the will of the British people top North Korean officials set to meet with US President Donald Trump and secretary of state Mike Pompeo in Washington later this week Bloomberg sources saying this could signal a second summit between the two countries. And that it could happen soon. Kim Yong shoal will be in Washington Friday, the official line from the US State Department is there are no meetings to announce November meetings were cancelled US Pentagon has confirmed the death of five military fighters by an explosion near a patrol and Syria. Islamic state has claimed responsibility now shortly after that announcement vice. President Mike Pence addressing an audience at the State Department. We are bringing our troops hall. The caliphate has crumbled, an ISIS has been defeated. But Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham says this is dangerous my concern by the statements made by President Trump is it should set in motion enthusiasm by the enemy were fighting. You make people were trying to help wonder about us. He says the president needs to look long hard before he withdraws from Syria. And even though is trying to improve exchanges with North Korea. South Korean officials say they've stopped businessmen from bringing North Korean painting south that have been covered under the UN. Sanctions. It says even now permits are required in San Francisco. I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Bryan, sir. Edward oh. Thank you very much in Singapore. Olivier dossier head of applied research at Exuma Asia's our guest Olivia. I'm it's great to have you with us on the program. We have some concerns in the Mark. This morning, but likely already discounted by all the selling that we saw back in December. And so the markets are advancing. But my question to you is should we actually wait for the Chinese stimulus to kick in to buy China? Or should we get out in front and go do it? Now. Well, that's a good question. And it actually depends. You know, if you're an international investor or if you're a domestic local investor right now, China's still has a lot of work to do it has to rebalance if the economy it has to deal with the the huge amount of leverage in its in its financial system, and it has his trade war going on with the US. So what what it needs right now is really stability while it deals with some of these problems. So I think you're likely to get a stimulus for that. But that's only going to be designed to provide liquidity enough liquidity ahead of the Chinese New Year period to have financial stability, and you're not gonna be able to change the fundamentals that it has to deal with your kicking the can down the road on the leverage issue or the de leveraging issue, but you're not going to be able to change the fact that the global economy slowing that investors last quarter have kind of changed their mind about how strong the economy really is. And actually how weak. It could be and that's going to be a headwind that you can't prevent with just a stimulus package. Yes. Certainly does seem at least what happened yesterday kicking the can down the road. What about in terms of some of the other stimulus points? They've seen the couple of weeks ago that triple I caught Ben earlier this week as well vowing logic tax cuts today. Just more of a I guess papering, the overall issues are they gonna help longer Tim? I think again. Yeah, they they're designed to help the banking system says prevent any kind of run on the Bank so to speak. If there is a for some reason a negative risk event. That happens you have Chinese New Year coming in with a huge demand for cash at this time of year by by retailers. So they're going to the Bank anyway to to to to withdraw cash so banks really have a an equity shortage ran this time of year. So that's really designed to help with that. And what really the government there is trying to do is is they have to organize a soft landing of their economy. They have to prevent any kind of run on the Bank or financial crisis from the debt load that they have and they have to deal with the trade war. So they really need to have everything as calm as possible. Even that time, we're not used to focusing on cracks in the Chinese economy. But the auto sector really cracked last year in two thousand eighteen and if that happens in the housing sector this year. Well, look out below right? That's right. That's right. So they are all these potential cracks that are in the system. A lot of the loans that the banks have are related to property. A lot of the the the that that's out there is related to properties. Obviously, this is a crack that everybody's watching.

"And welcome back to coast to coast Steven Cohen with Stephen there seems to be an uncanny list of Russian journalists who have been killed or who have died. Very mysteriously. We've heard the stories of the poisoning of dissidents. Are are these connected to Putin in your opinion? What do you think? I have this problem, George, and I take it very seriously. Just like a medical doctor just like an engineer just like the best journalists, I go based only on facts. Position allegations. You don't touch rumor, well, I studied them. But if there's no factual basis to them, I can't make him part of my work. I've looked into some of these cases in which Putin is accused of having ordered the killing people there about. Some magazine which had gone, quite wild and eighty cases. Which they said Putin had been involved, but there are three or four serious one credible ones in the sense that they made it the least they have some logic to them. I found no evidence I can give you one instant based on my own knowledge. Perhaps the first case and still in some ways the most. Important Kelly was the murder of a Russian journalist name on a polar cough sky. And I think it was two thousand eight I may be off. She was entering her apartment building and stopped where the mailboxes are and you open the front door with your key and assassin came up and shot her to death. And as is the sign of a higher Chacin. He dropped the revolver at her body. This was so important that the next day Putin himself commented on it. She was very well known investigative reporter and rather anti Putin. She works for a dear friend of mine mine, whose the editor of the main independent opposition newspaper in Russia. It's called no guys yet, the new newspaper, and it's very famous. It's very forthcoming in its criticism of the Kremlin has a large following on its web, millions of people young people the editor who to this day maintains shrine to wanna back when we were there last week, my wife, and I though it was winter, and it was covered they had a beautiful garden outside the building called on his garden. So they have memorialized her life. They are deeply sentimental and caring about her. They do not believe for a minute. Putin was behind it, nor does her surviving family, which I believe is to children. So. That's what I can tell you. If they don't believe Putin was behind it. And they above all would be tuned any guilt on the part of the Kremlin. They believe. It was assassinated carried out on the orders of the leader of Chechnya. Now, this Republic of the Russian federation where she had been reporting and exposing human rights, abuses, and corruption. Most of the cases. Again, this goes to the nature of the Russian political economic system, which was created in the nineteen ninety s most of the killings of journalists. If we were to make a list of let's say twenty. Are linked to stories. They published about business corruption. Because the system still has large pockets of corruption high and low in it, and when a reporter discovers that some major project that the government officials are involved, and they are getting paid on the side or Siping siphon siphoning off large amounts of money. There is a certain culture still in Russia leftover from the nineties where that journalists becomes a target. What is this has had to do with Putin? Well, there's no evidence or nor logic because it's bad for his reputation, very bad that he's behind the most you could say is why doesn't he stop it? And then this takes us to a larger question how much does Putin actually control in a country, that's the largest territorial country in the world. Could Putin put an end to these killings if he wanted to and I don't mean to be to make a false equation. But when Obama became president. Because he was a black man and apple American for various reasons, racial hate crimes increased in this country. But we would never blame Obama for that. We would say that's built in our culture. It's lamentable lamentable aspect a legacy a residue of our past. But we would never say Obama was at fault. I think not that Putin is Obama even though he's a leader. And he has immense power to can't he doesn't. He never has any never will. Control, very substantial dark places. But he's not a boy scout. No, I mean, he's very tough, man. He's a very smart, man. He he but still the question is what could he do? I mean, it's very bad for his reputation. And you'll note that a lot of these killings take place just as he's about to go abroad on a very important economic mission is some force. So let's give it take an example from November twenty fifth which I remember because I arrived in Russia that day and then to been my birthday, well, happy belated happy belated yet another year. You remember what happened that day Russian and Ukrainian gunboats got in a brief shooting match near this bridge that Russia's built between the Russian mainland and crime eight right now, why did that happen? The American newspapers. I was reading papers today from the last two weeks and also even as late as yesterday still say that Russia was at fault. But that doesn't seem to be what happened. The small Ukrainian gunboats defied longstanding regulations that they were to stop short of the bridge. We a very narrow straits, by the way, this has nothing to do with politics is existed for centuries. Navigating those straits is difficult. So you have to wait in line. You get your instructions, and here's the key. A Russian pilot comes on board. To steer the ship through the straits. It doesn't matter if you're Ukrainian or Cuban or American ship, that's the regulation the Ukrainian gun boats. Ran. Right across the the stop line and kept going and kept going, and so the Russian helicopters and planes and gunboats came fired on them took the ships took some prisoner and created what is now a fairly big international scandal. So did this all evidence points to the president of Ukraine all of it? There's simply no one had motive when police have a homicide the first question, they ask is who had a motive Putin had absolutely no motive he was supposed to meet with Trump and Argentina remember that. Yup. Like within two days somebody wanted to sabotage that meeting. They didn't want that meeting to take place, and it did not take place Trump for whatever reason lack of resolve. Or he wasn't permitted said he wasn't going to meet with Putin. But he cited that episode is one of the reasons than. Reason. Now, the president of Ukraine on the other hand has a presidential reelection campaign coming up very soon March what is that January February about three and a half months? Three months in the poll. He's getting under nine percent. It looks like he cannot be reelected. So should we assume that he wanted to turn himself into some kind of war hero? The next day he declared martial law in the territories of Ukraine that typically vote for pro Russian candidates. They it exists today as we talk martial law. So it looks like a very cynical wag the dog. You know that expression wag wag the dog act by Kiev? I think that's a fact what I don't know is whether people in Washington encourage the president of Ukraine to do that that we don't know. Let's take some calls Steven on that. I want to talk about the Ukraine a little bit more with you. But we'll pick it up by going to Brett in Michigan to get us started. Hi, Brett, go ahead, sir. Okay. T of February twenty fourteen there was a coup d'etat. And some months later, I happened to hear a communication intercepts. With Victoria, Newland in Geoffrey Pyatt of the US State Department jubilantly celebrating their six billion coup-d'etat six billion dollar coup-d'etat. Israeli massad snipers were picking off Kiev citizens. And I think also some of the military. Just as they did. After after the the original invasion of Iraq after Afghanistan that would have been what March of all three. Same thing happened there. They disbanded the military and there's a presentation on YouTube. I think it is called the first year in Iraq the very same scenario now in Israel at Jerusalem university or Hebrew University. Start a doctor or professor Israel Shahar. Author of Jewish history. Jewish religion the weight of three thousand years. He's the fella who somewhere in the mid to late eighties to transmitted the Oded Yunan plan known as the greater Israel. Project for global conquest. So you're saying bread Israel's behind all this. What I'm saying as a combat that? Thank you for serving by the way. Happened to. No, no, even maybe Owens Broschi is a name that would ring a bell with your guest, Ellen Zabriskie. Honorable Hebrew, American Marine Corps vet US army war college Colonel. He he discovered and presents on YouTube presentation, Israel did nine eleven all the proof. And there's a there's a couple of others. All right. Well, let's get some of your reaction to that. Stephen. That's I'm not I'm not going to go with this Isreaeli behind all these various deeds because it's lace was something that I find myself, I'm comfortable with. But the episode he mentioned is very important in Ukraine. I think he missed dates. I don't think it was February twelfth February twenty twenty one twenty two when ineffective via coup the legitimately elected president of Ukraine was overthrown. Now, he's also mistaken on one thing. The tape does exist. The Torian new one who is a very high ranking member of the American State Department, and in charge of the Ukrainian operation and Jeffrey pot who was the ambassador at the time. This took place before the coup he has it after the coup, but it's even more telling before, and this is not supposition document has been published. They have a talk and they discussed the formation of a government after the overthrow of Yanukovych. What is which is yet to happen? What's interesting is the members of that government that they agreed upon between the two of them on the phone became the government of Ukraine. What do we make of that? Well, it looks as though Washington played a very big role in the overthrow of Yanukovych and the formation of the so called post. My Don government, which is still in power today. More or less. That seems to have been the case. What do we say about this? I believe it was among Obama's worst foreign policy mistakes. He was way over his head Ukraine is Slavic territory. Largely it is part of his joint centuries old civilization shared by Russia in Ukraine. The attempt to sever Ukraine from Russia lettuce today, George to where we are in this new and more dangerous Cold War that was a turning point. So it wasn't Israel. They may have been involved, but it wasn't Israel. They pulled the trigger in Ukraine in February two fourteen. It was Washington when the Soviet Union collapsed. Didn't any of those satellite countries? Want to stay with Russia? Yes. And here's what's interesting. I I wrote about this not in this book war with Russia question, Mark. But in the previous book about the end of the Soviet Union that if people say the Soviet Union was a colonial empire. It's often said yet the republic's there were fifteen republics including Russia of the Soviet Union. They all went their separate ways the ones that didn't want to go with the central Asian republics. They didn't want the end of the union for various reasons. And yet, you would think they were the most. Colonized? You see what I'm getting? Yeah. They didn't want the partly because they were receiving subsidies for Moscow, but the end of the Soviet Union set free or created fifteen new states some have worked out pretty well, some have not Ukraine in the forefront there, but the end of the Soviet Union in December nineteen ninety one is a story that yet untold is still unfolding and a lot of the things were coping with today. I would submit to international terrorism of a kind that wouldn't have existed if the Soviet Union still existed is a result of the end of the Soviet. You could be you know, I keep thinking if our fifty state salts spun office separate countries, how many of them would really make it and succeed and not a lot of them would add one thing. Unlike our states, the Soviet republics were ethnic nationality based it was an who's back Totta Georgina Ukrainian so what emerges. George is a kind of ethnic nationalism at a time in the world when ethnic nationalism is on the rise as a disruptive force. So I think I mean, not only because so the Soviet Union was the history of the twentieth century, but because the ramifications the fall out of the end of the Soviet Union. It was a great turning point in history. And we're seeing it every day today. I mean, I mean even the problems that are unfolding in France and Europe today in some ways are the ripples of the end of the Soviet Union. But certainly what we're watching in places like Ukraine. Next up. Let's go to James in Los Angeles. James takeaway. Hi, professor, Colin. Thanks for taking my call. I appreciate it. Professor cohen..

"There's been reports of the GRE which is Russian military intelligence creating fake comments on news sites creating fake social media profiles Russian forces attempt to seize and control internet access on the Crimean peninsula. Russia drummed up support in Crimea. And then went in militarily move forces towards the border with Ukraine where they had in previous. Sleep been stationed and very quickly seizes the territory of Crimea, initially Russia denied it had troops in Crimea. The soldiers had no insignia on their uniforms, but they carried Russian weapons. Vladimir Putin said they were quote, local Self Defense Forces and Russia, then annexes Crimea, effectively admitting all of the things that they've done there that there was Russia acting Russia didn't just lie and it didn't just put out propaganda. It's subterfuge. In Crimea went deeper. Russia is undermining sort of objective reality. They are putting out messages that make it seem like there's no objective truth. It wasn't long before. American State Department officials in Ukraine started picking up on all this disinformation. Molly Schwartz brings us the story. when Russia annexed Crimea, it sent the US State Department, scrambling SRI, Preston Carney was working there as a foreign service officer. He remembers how things unfolded next. The State Department actually tried to bring together a collection of Russia experts and public diplomacy experts to try and do a counter messaging task force. She was tapped to be the campaign director for this new Ukraine communications task force. He began to notice some strange things about the way that the conflict was being described on Russian media. I saw people claiming that the CIA had put dead bodies inside a plane, and then purposely shot it down in order to create propaganda against the Russian government people were repeating that story again, and again, and I realize we had gone through the looking glass at that point that if people could believe that they could believe almost anything SRI and his task force were responding in real time. They noticed that. There are a few influential. Names who are driving the narrative on the Russian side. We would have certain actors who would pop up again.
