A highlight from Vivek Ramaswamy talks national security, China, and Russia with Hugh
"Welcome to today's podcast sponsored by Hillsdale College all things Hillsdale at Hillsdale .edu I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there and of course a listen to the Hillsdale dialogues all of them at hugh for Hillsdale .com or just google Apple, iTunes and Hillsdale Welcome back America. I'm Hugh Hewitt inside of Studio North Joined now by Vivek Ramaswamy. Vivek is the author most recently of Woke Inc. inside corporate America's social justice scam He's a graduate of Harvard College of Yale Law School, which is pretty good for a kid from Cincinnati, especially a St. X kid. Very successful biotech investor now runs Strive. Of course He is best known for sustained attacks on woke ideology and for his very surprising 2024 campaign he's in third place if you use the RealClear politics He's in second place if you use some regular polls. Vivek, welcome back. It's good to see you again Good to see you. How are you? I'm great now. I've already told the audience we chatted on Friday You did not want a pre -interview. I want people to know that but I always talk to candidates so that they're not ambushed by me We had a good conversation This is a national security interview Let me begin by saying you're going to the Nixon library on Friday And you're Belinda to give a speech about national security. Why did you pick my favorite presidential library? Well, I think it would commemorated my foreign policy vision Hugh I'm actually gonna really reorient our foreign policy away from the model of liberal hegemony Back to a model of actual I would say protection of the homeland a modern Monroe doctrine But a big part of my strategy is to pull Russia out of its military alliance with China Russia China together outmatched the US in every area of major competition Hypersonic missile capabilities ahead of that of the US a larger nuclear stockpile in Russia's case Naval capabilities in many ways that exceed ours in China's I know that's something we can debate but together they outmatched the US And so what I want to do is the reverse maneuver of what Nixon did in 1972 what did Nixon do he pulled Mao Zedong out of Bresin have led USSR's hands right now I believe Putin is like the new Mao. Did we trust Mao then? No, we did not should we trust Putin now? No, we do not but we can trust each of them not to actually follow their own self -interest And so that's how I plan to end the Ukraine war Do a deal that yes does give Putin concessions but in return for requiring Vladimir Putin to exit his military partnership with China and there are echoes of Nixon's diplomacy in 1972 that I thought the best place to do this was actually at the Nixon presidential library itself And so we'll be going into far greater depth Hugh But that just gives you a sense for why we chose that as the location to do it Well, we can go into great depth here because we're not rushed and I don't want to rush We're gonna play what we don't play on the air today tomorrow on the program so we don't have to rush I want to ask though You're you're going out to Nixon land in Yorba Linda as we approach the 50th anniversary of what I think is Richard Nixon's greatest foreign policy accomplishment The Yom Kippur war is that something with which you're familiar and how he acted there? I Am though that was not part of the inspiration for my actual going to the Nixon library was more the Reverse maneuver with respect to China. That's my case when Israel was on the ropes in 1973 Nixon said send everything that can fly We didn't have a treaty obligation to do so But he did and he saved them from the invasion by the Syrians the Jordanians and the Egyptians How is that different from sending everything that can fly not men not soldiers not women not Marines But weaponry is what Nixon sent to Israel in 73 50 years ago I gather you want to cut that off to Ukraine now if Putin will do a deal.
Fresh update on "ussr" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"So, so Blake, the counter argument from weak Republican criminal justice advocates would be, but it could be a potential death penalty for a young person that might be caught up in a moment of passion of like, like, I mean, I get it. You're like, okay, so that's the position. So it's a teenager goes and steals a bunch of Nike's potentially could get a bullet. Look what we have now. Like we have teenagers who carjack, who are carjacking Ubers who are joyriding and Kia's and Hyundai's who are, you know, mugging people who are committing these severe assaults. This is happening because we have unleashed chaos is stealing. And I'm not disagreeing is stealing Nike's or Apple computers morally equivalent to like assaulting a human being. It is not, but I think we, it is easy to understate it. It is like to, you could do anything with your life and you decided to just go smash into a store, steal a bunch of things that aren't yours, endanger the public. And like this, these things routinely get violent in the act. Like these routinely lead to murders and such as we saw in the aftermath of this and say like, no, this is entirely unacceptable behavior. So why is like, it's like saying if someone just breaks into your home, is it like, can you not use force on those people if they're only trying to steal things like, is it really worth ending a teenager's life if they just want to steal your jewelry? Oh, I'm perfectly on the page of that. But Blake is the part of your argument that also it would create deterrence. This would make looting almost non-existent. The thing about it is, is that if we shot looters, we in, you know, in six months, we wouldn't be shooting looters anymore and we wouldn't have looters. Whereas right now we have looters and we still have all these shootings because looting causes all other crimes to become easier and more common. So here's, what's the craziest part, the broken windows theory, 100% broken windows is true. It's like been demonstrated over and over. No, it's stop crime by punishing crime. So here's, what's the craziest part about this whole thing. I'll throw this in cause Jack will appreciate this. Neo-Marxists that this is like, what's so mind blowing to me. How did they handle stealing in the USSR? So in a collectivist society, pretty aggressively, right? Oh, you get shot. Yeah. It was the law. It was the law. There was a lie. I think it was called the last night. I don't believe in private property, right? The last spikelets, which was that if you stole grain, right? Because it's collectivist, we have to shoot you because there's that. There's nothing that will stop it other than shooting. So this is like the craziest part about the whole thing. When you look at the broader context of politics is all these people that are, are advocating on behalf of just like looting and rioting are actually aligned with Marxism, but the end result of Marxism is that all of these people would be shot for doing what they're doing. I think it's just a great moment, by the way, is in the Gulag archipelago. So the Soviet constitution, they ban the death penalty and someone brings us up when they sentence the guy to be shot. And the judge is like, he's not been sentenced to death. He's been sentenced to be shot and shoot him. They did. Yeah, exactly. And that's the other thing, death penalty by working to death too. And Gulag, like there is, you have to address that this is what Marxists. So the only way that you actually survive in a society of with looting and stealing and the most forgiving society is the society in which we currently live. But that's not what they're advocating for. They're fighting for a society that would ultimately lead to this repercussion. So it's like either we get more stringent as a society now to actually protect more people or their own ideology is going to lead to an extermination of their, of everything that they're teaching their children. And to have them, well, the difference, all I would say about Tyler is that it's, yes, it would lead to extermination, but it would lead to extermination of their political enemies, namely us. That's the difference. They wouldn't actually just be going after like the petty criminals and those guys. Maybe some of them, they became too much of a nuisance, but what they'd really be doing is going after like the priests, the nuns and the political distance. The guy's actually causing problems to the revolution, namely the people on the show. Yeah. The application of the law. So I just want to make sure I'm clear, Blake, that this woman meatball would have been, it would have been okay to shoot her under. I think she was recording the regime. She got charged with six felonies. We haven't played the clip yet. 173 encouraging the looting and live streaming it charged with six felonies and robbery. Play cut 173.
A highlight from Expose the Tyranny of Lies with Vivek Ramaswamy
"I want to thank Charlie, he's an incredible guy, his spirit, his love of this country. He's done an amazing job building one of the most powerful youth organizations ever created, Turning Point USA. We will not embrace the ideas that have destroyed countries, destroyed lives, and we are going to fight for freedom on campuses across the country, that's why we are here. Brought to you by the loan experts I trust, Andrew and Todd at Sierra Pacific Mortgage at andrewandtodd .com. Today Donald Trump is going to be arraigned at a DC federal courthouse. Former President of the United States, arraigned by this feral dog by the name of Jack Smith, who is using the full force of the federal government. And Merrick Garland signed off on this. It's supposed to be an independent council, this is not an independent council, this is one of Eric Holder's lackeys, went out to The Hague. This guy has failed time and time again with his prosecutorial record. Failed with McDonald, overturned at the Supreme Court. He is perfect for political prosecutions, or should I say, persecutions. I've read the indictment multiple times, we've been through the details of this. This is a disgrace. It's a total disgrace, and I will say, I'm sensing a little bit of a change of even some of the most ardent Trump critics that I speak with and I text with. I spoke with one the other day, someone who hates Donald Trump, and I called him, I said, so, how do you feel? He said, man, I hate Trump. I said, but I don't hate him this much. He said, what do you mean? He said, man, this is so bad. This is so damaging, so dangerous. He's like, Trump's probably going to win the nomination, I'll support him in the general. He's like, I really think Trump is bad for the country, but this is worse. I was like, OK, that's an honest take. I could take that. That is progress. That is movement. And I'll be honest. Anybody who is now doing cheap shots at Donald Trump while he is under active, multi sham federal indictments, I've lost respect for you. Read the room. Understand what's really at play here. This is not the time to get in cheap shots of, oh, Donald Trump should have fired Fauci faster. Yeah, yeah, yeah, OK. Get out of the way. We don't have time for this. OK? There's something much bigger going on here than policy disagreements. That might be valid. OK, personnel selection. We've talked about it. This is the whole ballgame. Can an unelected administrative state take out the leader of an opposition party? They believe. Yes, absolutely. So The New York Times, I read it, so you don't have to. It's just the lack of self -awareness here is amazing. So they go through the co -conspirators. We had John Eastman on the program and who's likely going to be indicted or unindicted co -conspirator. We don't know. This is this is the headline. First Amendment is likely linchpin of Trump defense. Allies prepare for fight over free speech after indictment calls out lies. And then it goes on to say the indictment cites a campaign of election falsehoods. Time out here. Are you allowed to believe things that the government doesn't believe? Why do we have a First Amendment? We are the speaking beings, as Aristotle would say. We have reason, dialogue, conversation, disagreement, debate. What opinions exactly need to be regulated? A free society means that you're allowed to not just disagree, but challenge. And in a free society, you're allowed to have what is deemed as wacky or goofy opinions. I don't even think what Donald Trump was espousing was wacky or goofy. For the record, I think Donald Trump was onto something huge. His gut instinct is correct. The 2020 election was a sham. From the intel agencies to the fake Hunter Biden laptop letter to the mass mail -in ballots to the Center for Technology and Civic Life to the Yul -Roth meetings with Twitter and the FBI, Donald Trump was onto something. But this indictment, and this is why when people do these cheap shots on Trump like, oh, Nikki Haley, move on, get out of the way. You're a waste of time, all right? This here is the criminalization of wrongthink. This is the criminalization and the potential imprisonment and death penalty. That's right. One of the statutes that Donald Trump is facing could potentially get him the death penalty for asking questions. Now, let's just go through the last couple hundred years. Is there ever a time where somebody challenges an orthodoxy and ends up being proven right? One of the most famous examples is Galileo. Galileo, who was basically put on house arrest for questioning, saying, hey, maybe there's something to this heliocentric theory of, nope, I'll put you in house arrest. Go into prison. Or in the 1900s, lobotomies used to be considered to be the most amazing medical breakthrough. How about as recently as the Hunter Biden laptop is a Russian disinformation? Our leader said that, or that the vaccine is safe and effective, or that lockdowns are going to help kids, or that the virus is going to kill 20 percent of our population. What's really going on here with this indictment? And what infuriates me, and I have not heard this point made, is like, OK, they're going after somebody for wrongthink. Meanwhile, not a single member of the administrative state, not a single maggot, not a single vermin, not a single one of these people have been held accountable for their lies the last couple of years, for their intentional misrepresentations, for power, for profit. And yet they're going after Donald Trump for asking questions that they don't like. And The New York Times says, well, you know, the First Amendment is likely his defense. Well, yeah. What they are trying to do is set a precedent that, I'll be honest, is even bigger than Donald Trump. They're going for a civilizational changing indictment here. Not only do they think they will be able to take out the leader of the opposition party, they want to set a precedent in what will be the highest profile case. More eyeballs on this case than I think any in American history. Maybe, maybe the Scopes Monkey trial would come closer. This is going to be, this will be covered wall to wall, every motion, every filing. And by the way, I know it's not customary. We need to demand that there are cameras in the courtroom. We need to demand it. And every one of these trials, there is not an argument not to have cameras in the courtroom, period. You're going to go lock up the opposition leader. I want it on every television. Own it, Jack Smith. Own it, prosecutors. Come on, show us what you're doing. I don't want to look at some sort of sketch by some sort of guy. No, no, no, no, no. Cameras in the courtroom. I want to know what's going on. This will make the O .J. Simpson trial look like child's play as far as the high profile civilizational impact. And that's not just one. You got documents. You got this conspiracy to defraud the United States, a bunch of silly stuff. You got the Georgia one that is looming. We need cameras in the courtroom. We need eyeballs. I thought, because democracy dies in darkness, right? That's what I'm lectured by the degenerates of the Washington Post every day. What is really going on here in this indictment is, yes, Donald Trump is part of it. But the bigger game is can they eliminate the First Amendment? And that is even bigger than Trump. That is the crux of this indictment. The of crux this indictment is the promise of the United States Constitution that our founding fathers put in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, inspired largely by George Mason, Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof or abridging the freedom of speech or of press and the right to peaceably assemble. Here is the key. Here is the key. And to petition the government for a redress of grievances, this entire thing, even if you think Donald Trump was on Neptune and he believed wacky stuff, which I do not. I think he was onto something. You are constitutionally allowed to challenge your government. You're allowed to believe wacky and weird stuff. In fact, that is what makes America a great country. We should applaud it when somebody asks questions of their government. We shouldn't send them to prison. The government is not the arbiter of truth. And that's what I just keep on going back to it. What was the state -run newspaper of the USSR? Truth. Pravda. We know the truth as the USSR. Not you, Kulak. If you disagree, I will put you in prison and murder you.

Fresh update on "ussr" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"That's the speaker of the House of Commons, Anthony Rota, who invited Yaroslav Hunter. Rota This House is above any of us. Therefore, I step must down as your speaker. I reiterate my profound regret for my error in recognizing an individual in the House during the joint address to Parliament of President Zelensky. That public recognition has caused pain to individuals and communities, including the Jewish community in Canada and around the world, in addition to survivors of Nazi atrocities in Poland among other nations. I accept full responsibility for my actions. On Wednesday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, also formally apologized. I also want to reiterate how deeply sorry Canada is for the situation this put President Zelensky and the Ukrainian delegation in. It is extremely troubling to think that this egregious error is being politicized by Russia and its supporters to provide false propaganda about what Ukraine is fighting for. Friday's joint session was about what Canada stands for, about our steadfast support of Ukraine's fight against Putin's brutality, lies and violence. It was a moment to celebrate and acknowledge the sacrifices of Ukrainians as they fight for their democracy, their freedom, their language and culture, and for peace. This is the side Canada was on in World War II, and this is the side we are on today. Meanwhile, Canada's conservative leader, Pierre Poiliev, described the event honoring the former Nazi soldier as the biggest single diplomatic This week Poland's education minister issued a statement calling for Honka's extradition to Poland to be tried. For more, we're joined by Lev Galinkin. He is the Ukrainian -American journalist who's looking for the forward, first confirmed Yaroslav Honka was a World War II veteran who fought in best a unit. Nazi SS Lev has reported extensively on the Ukraine crisis, Russia and the far right. Welcome back to democracy now, Lev. So explain exactly who this guy Honka was. How was it that he's standing there, 98 years old, in the gallery and pointed out by the House of Commons speaker and everyone who have Trudeau apologizing? I don't think Zelensky has said anything about this yet. He has not, as far as you know, Zelensky has condemned this unit SS Galichina in 2021 when there was a march in honor its in Kiev. So he condemned it in 2021. He's been silent since as far as this incident. I'll tell you this, Amy, as soon as I saw the news that he was described as fighter a for Ukraine's independence against Russia, I knew that he was a Nazi collaborator. The only question, the first question that just went through my mind was which unit was he in? Because that's a euphemism that they used to say, you know, we didn't fight for Germany. We fought against Russia. It's a cheap rhetorical trip because when they fought against Russia, they were fighting alongside and under and under. This dark history and taking in Nazi collaborators, including in the nation about Canada's Nazi monuments, which they have monuments to this exact division, this is a country that on its soil has monuments celebrating the Waffen -SS, as does the United States. So, in many ways, Jaroslav belonged Hunka up in the parliament because he was there as of part a country that took in at least 2000 SS Galicianavets, 2000 of these Waffen SS soldiers from a division that committed horrific war crimes. And one of the interesting things is because they were taking in partly because they were enemies of the USSR, so it was Cold War politics. But, and this is something that gets often lost, an extraordinary benefit for why Canada took them in was the using them as strike breakers to break the powers of the unions. The unions were growing strong after World War II, and these men that were organized and ready to act as strike breakers. So this is a stark part of Canada's domestic policy and foreign policy together. So if you can explain further when it comes to World War II, how All these Nazi units were formed, what their relationship was with Germany? Yes, it's very important to know that these people described as their Ukrainian heroes, the overwhelming majority of Ukraine fought against the Third Reich. Two and a half million Ukrainians perished. They gave their lives fighting against the Third Reich. The only ones who really say that Ukraine, Ukraine collaborated with the Nazis. That's what Vladimir Putin says. That's what Moscow propaganda says. The reality is that that a small region in western Ukraine welcomed the Nazis. And this is the same region where they started slaughtering Jews as soon as the Nazis invaded. In many cases, the SS didn't even have to kill the Jews because the Ukrainian nationalist death squads have already done it. So, this small percentage rose up. They joined the Nazis. And in 1943, when Germany needed even more soldiers because Germany was losing the war, they created this Waffen -SS division, which was mostly composed of volunteers and people like Hunka said that they volunteered for this division. They committed war crimes. At the end of the war, they were taken in and they were released. And many of them, thousands were taken into the UK, into the US, into Canada. So, the biggest thing that people should understand is that when we think of Nazis being taken into the new world, we think of Argentina and Nazis hiding there and keeping a low profile. These Nazis were openly proud of what they did in Canada. They formed organizations, they formed veterans associations. I think, you know, people have been asking me like, what was he thinking? Why was he even putting himself out there? And the answer is because Canada spent so long turning a blind eye to these people and allowing them to be proud of who they are. The notion that anything would happen, the notion that people would complain, I don't think it crossed this man's mind because I and everybody else, the few people who report about this, we were Russian propagandists. And even though these were literal Nazis who were historically strictly proved to have committed war crimes, people don't want to hear it because they were, it's Holocaust revisionism. They were portrayed as heroes. These are war criminals who successfully painted themselves as heroes. So I was stunned that all of a sudden Canada decided to face its past. So why do you think the Ukrainian President Zelensky has not said anything given he's condemned that unit in the past? I mean, there he was along with obviously Justin Trudeau, the House of Commons speaker who has since resigned applauding man. this And how was he brought to the House of Speakers attention? I think he lived in his area to be brought to the House of Commons to be celebrated as Zelensky met Well, this is a man who was active in the community, especially I think there's evidence coming out that he don't he definitely donated money who did his family did he donate money to the University of Alberta, for was this a person who was active in the community. So he wasn't just some random, random person plucked at random. So as far as that, as far as Zelensky, I mean, he's in the middle of fighting a war. That's obviously a something that's in his mind. He was just away on a state visit, he came back. think But I the important thing is so far, I don't think anybody's asked him in the media. And I think the important question not is why hasn't he said anything, but why wasn't he asked for his response when Trudeau apologized when the Canadian Parliament Speaker apologized. And they also just want to suggest to understand how entrenched this is in Canada. Canada's deputy prime minister, Christian Freeland, has spent presenting years her grandfather, who was a Nazi collaborator, as a war victim. attacked him. OK, so the Canadian Parliament Speaker spent 30 seconds turning A perpetrator into a hero. Christian Freeland has done it for decades. And it. Explain exactly who her maternal grandfather is. Her grandfather worked as a propagandist that took over a Polish newspaper.

"Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're talking about movers and shakers. Dancers, stunt women, martial artists and other pioneering women who've used their physical prowess to shake things up. Today we're talking about a globe trotting explorer and filmmaker who traveled around the world, literally. She drove across countries most of her contemporaries would never see in their lifetimes. And documented her expeditions on film to bring them back home. Her escapades earned her the title of the world's most widely traveled woman. Please welcome aloha wanderwell. Though her travels would take her around the world, aloha's story began quaintly. As a young girl named idris, growing up in salmon arm British Columbia. She was born on October 13th, 1906, and spent her early days reading adventure novels. The fantastic tales of lands around the globe inspired her to dream of a life outside of Canada. When idris stepfather died in action during World War I, her mother moved the family to Europe and enrolled her daughters in a convent school in France. Even across the Atlantic, idris felt stifled by her new surroundings. The 6 foot tall, self described tomboy, had little interest in learning how to be a proper young lady. Instead, each rest dreamt of adventure she wanted to fly into headstrong winds and sleep under a Canopy of stars. Not sit in a dusty old schoolroom all day. In 1922, her wanderlust would become a reality. One day, 16 year old idris was looking through the newspaper when she came across an eye catching ad. Brains, beauty, and breaches it read world tour offer for lucky young woman. It called for a good-looking brainy young lady prepared to rough it in Asia and Africa. Incidentally, that same young woman should be ready to forswear skirts and marriage. For at least a few years. Idris could hardly reply quickly enough. The ad was taken out by captain Walter wanderwell, a Polish traveler, hiker, and cofounder of the work around the world educational club. The club was founded as a way to promote world peace in a post war world. And fund Walters travels. Walter competed against other teams in an international car race. The goal was to log the most miles worldwide, selling souvenirs and holding movie screenings along the way. Walter needed a secretary, a Jack of all trades who was scrappy enough to keep pace. It was exactly the job idris was hoping for. With her mother's blessing, idris joined Walter on the road as aloha wander well. A stage name, cobbled together from a childhood moniker and Walter's own surname. With a new image and a new calling, aloha hopped in Walter's Ford model T and sped off. She drove the wanderwell crew across the French countryside. Waited through political upheavals in Italy and Germany. And camped at the foot of the Sphinx in Egypt. She trekked the Sudanese desert, tussled with bandits, and even became an honorary colonel in the USSR. Every step of the way, aloha documented each detail of their trip. Appearing both in front of and behind the camera. In February of 1925, during a visit to California, aloha and Walter were married. The couple would go on to have two children together. While in California aloha began to refine her editing skills. She'd recut and create new narration for her films depending on the audiences she'd be lecturing to. Over time, she took on more roles in her own production process. In December of 1927, aloha drove through France once again, and in doing so, she became the first woman to drive around the globe. Since first hitting that gas pedal in 1922, she'd traveled 380,000 miles across 6 continents. All by the time she was 22 years old. At the end of the trip, aloha and Walter compiled all of the footage and released their first full documentary called with car and camera around the world. For their next expedition, aloha and Walter voyage to the state of mato grosso, Brazil. While there, they film the ceremonial dances and customs of the baro people. Aloha used footage from this trip in three of her films, including her only theatrically released sound film, the river of death. The battle of the elements was reflected in the turmoil of spirit and the wild beating of our hearts as we looked forward in great anticipation to our adventure in the jungles of South America. The storm abated and soon we were steaming on to real de Janeiro. In hopes of continuing their travels, the wander wells purchased a schooner named karma. But this would prove to be Walter's final adventure. According to newspapers of the time, just before the boat was to embark, a stranger and a long gray coat climbed aboard. Moments after, Walter was shot. Several suspects were questioned, including aloha, but the murder remains unsolved to this day. A media firestorm surrounded the trial, but fizzled soon after. Just a year out from Walter's death, aloha married another Walter, Walter baker, a gas station attendant. The two would travel together and collaborate on all of aloha's future films. Her last films include to see the world by car and explorers of the purple sage, which featured the only known footage of desert dust, a famed wild stallion. In 19 39, she published a memoir titled call to adventure. Aloha began to wind down her lectures as she got older. She dedicated the rest of her life to preserving her films. Sending many to various organizations, including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In June of 1996, aloha passed away in Newport Beach, California. She was 89 years old. By the time of her death, aloha had faded into obscurity. But the Academy Film archive and the Library of Congress were able to obtain restore and preserve her films. The films are stored in the aloha wanderwell baker film collection. And are available for viewing for a new generation of adventurers. All month we're talking about movers and shakers.

We turn now to the revelation that the Ukrainian World War II veteran honored last week in the Canadian House of Commons was actually Nazi a setting off a diplomatic crisis. Last Friday, Canada's House of Commons gave a standing excavation to a Canadian Ukrainian veteran who fought in a Nazi S. S. Unit during World War II. 98 -year -old Jaroslav Honka was honored during a visit by the Ukrainian president, Lodimir Zelensky, who also applauded him here in the chamber today, Ukrainian Canadians, Ukrainian Canadian world veteran from the Second World War who fought the Ukrainian independence against the Russians and continues to support the troops today, even at his age of 98. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. The speaker the of House of Commons, Anthony Rota, who invited Jaroslav Honka. Rota resigned from his post Tuesday. This house is above any of us. Therefore, I must step down as your speaker. I reiterate my profound regret for my error in recognizing an individual in the House during the joint address to President Zelensky. That public recognition has caused pain to individuals and communities, including the Jewish community in Canada and around the world, in addition to survivors of the atrocities in Poland, among other nations. I accept full responsibility for my actions. On Wednesday Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also formally apologized. I also want to reiterate how deeply sorry Canada is for the situation this put President Zelensky and delegation in. It is extremely troubling to think that this egregious error is being politicized by Russia and its supporters to provide false propaganda about what Ukraine is fighting for. Friday's joint session was about what Canada stands for, about our steadfast support of Ukraine's fight against Putin's brutality, lies and violence. It was a moment to celebrate and acknowledge the sacrifices of Ukrainians as they fight for their democracy, freedom, their their language and culture and for peace. This is the side Canada was on in World War II and this is the side we are on today. Meanwhile, Canada's conservative leader, Pierre Poiliev, described the event honoring the former Nazi soldier as the biggest single diplomatic This week, Poland's education minister issued a statement calling for Honka's extradition to Poland to be tried. For more, we're joined by Lev Golinkin. He is the Ukrainian -American journalist who's reporting for the forward, first confirmed Yaroslav Honka was a World War II veteran who fought Nazi in a SS unit. Lev has reported extensively on the Ukraine crisis, Russia and the far right. Back to Democracy Now, Lev. So explain exactly who this guy Honka was. How was it that he's standing there, 98 years old, in the gallery and pointed out by the House of Commons speaker? And everyone applauded. You have Trudeau apologizing. I don't think Zelensky has said anything about this yet. He has not. As far as he knows, Zelensky has condemned this unit, SS Galichina, in 2021 when there a was march in its honor in Kiev. So he condemned it in 2021. He's been silent since as far as a fighter for Ukraine's independence against Russia. I knew that he was a Nazi collaborator. The only question, the first question that just went through my mind was which unit was he in? Because that's a euphemism that they used to say, you know, we didn't fight for Germany. We fought against Russia. It's a cheap rhetorical trip because when they fought against Russia, they were fighting alongside and under command of Nazi Germany. And honestly, I have been shocked because I have reported on Canada's dark history and taking in Nazi collaborators, including in the nation about Canada's Nazi monuments, which they have monuments to this exact division. This is a country that on its soil has monuments celebrating the Waffen SS, as does the United States. So in many ways, Jaroslav Hunka belonged up in the parliament because he was these Waffen SS soldiers from a division that committed horrific war crimes. And the interesting thing is because they were taking in partly because they were enemies of the USSR. So it was Cold War politics. But and this is something that gets often lost, an an ancillary benefit for why Canada took them in was using them as strike breakers to break the powers of the unions. The unions were growing strong after World War Two, and these men were organized and ready to act as strike breakers. So this is a dark part of Canada's domestic policy and foreign policy together. So if you can explain further when it comes to World War Two, how these Nazi units were formed, what their relationship was with Germany. Yes, it's very important to know that these people described as, you know, their Ukrainian heroes. The overwhelming majority of Ukraine fought against the Third Reich. Two and a half million Ukrainians perished. They gave their fighting against the Third Reich. The only ones who really say that, you know, Ukraine, that all of Ukraine collaborated with the Nazis. That's what Vladimir Putin says. That's what Moscow propaganda says. The reality is that a small region in western Ukraine welcomed the Nazis. And this is the same region where they started slaughtering Jews as soon as the Nazis invaded. In many cases, the SS didn't even have to kill the Jews because the Ukrainian nationalist squads have already done it. So this small percentage rose They up. joined the Nazis. And in 1943, when Germany needed even more soldiers because Germany was losing the war, they created this Waffen -SS division, which mostly was composed of volunteers and people like Hunka said that they volunteered for this division. They committed war crimes. At the end of this, at the end of the war, they were taken in and they were released. And many of them, thousands, were taken into the UK, into the US, into Canada. So, in, and the biggest thing that people should understand is that when we think of Nazis being taken into the new world, we think of Argentina and Nazis hiding there, a keeping low profile. These Nazis were openly proud of what they did in Canada. They formed organizations, they formed veterans associations. I think, you know, people have asking been me, like, what was he thinking? Why was he even putting himself out there? And the answer is, because Canada spent so long turning a blind eye to these people and allowing them to be proud of who they are. The notion that anything would happen, the notion that people would complain, I don't think it crossed this man's mind, because I and everybody else, the few people who report about this, just we call it Russian propagandists. And even though these were literal Nazis who were historically proved to have committed war crimes, people don't want to hear it because it's Holocaust provisionism, they were portrayed as heroes. These are war criminals who successfully painted themselves as heroes. So I was stunned that all of a sudden Canada to face its past. So why do you think the Ukrainian President Zelensky has not said anything given he's condemned that unit in the past? I mean there he was along with obviously Justin Trudeau, the House of Commons Speaker who has since resigned to this cutting man. And how was he brought to the House of Speakers attention? I think he lived in his area to be brought to the House of Commons to be celebrated as Zelensky met with the House of Commons. Well, this is a man who was active in the community, especially I think there's evidence coming out that he donated definitely money to the University of Alberta, for example, for a scholarship that the University just decided, just announced they were giving away. So, this is a person who was active in the community, so he wasn't just some random person plucked at random. So, as far as Zelensky, I mean, he's in the middle of fighting a war. That's obviously something that's in his mind. He was just away on a state visit. He came back. But I think the important thing is, so far, I don't think anybody's asked him in the media. And I think the important question is not why hasn't he said anything, but why wasn't he asked for his response when Trudeau apologized, when the Canadian Parliament Speaker apologized. And they also just want to say, just to understand how entrenched this is in Canada, Canada's Deputy Prime Minister, Kristia Freeland, has spent years presenting her grandfather, who was a Nazi collaborator, as a war victim. OK, so the Canadian Parliament Speaker spent 30 seconds turning a perpetrator into a hero. Kristia Freeland has

Was making threats now he says he's never made threats that just goes back and forth. But a more philosophical general question about nukes. And you may not have an answer for this, but so say nukes and the state, right? Like no one likes nukes, but the state invented nukes, you know, now the state is like the caretaker of nukes. Russia obviously has the largest nuclear stockpile in the world. How do we reconcile this all of this with free market theory? I mean, is there a free market denuclearization program? Well, okay, so a couple of things. People say Russia has the largest stockpile, but given Russian technology, it might not work. We have to assume half of them won't work. Which is not really a good thing. I mean, it makes it more dangerous in a sense. I mean, there's a counterpoint to the hopper talk. There's a guy Sam Harris, who I don't like a lot because he's really a mainstream, and he's really annoying. But he had this guy Timothy Snyder on recently, one of his recent episodes, episode three O one. I sent you the link. It's on making sense. And he knows a lot about the history of all this and great historian. He makes a pretty good point that. About the risk of nuclear war. You could be increasing the risk of nuclear war by giving in to his nuclear blackmail. Right. Like right now. Because it will embolden him and all that. I mean, I used to be terrified of the prospect of a nuclear world, which is obviously where we're heading someday. But, you know, if you think about it, it's kind of impressive that the U.S. has been able to get its vassal states like Japan and Germany. Not to not have nukes in Canada, et cetera, under the under the promise that we're going to protect it with our umbrella. What I think is becoming pretty clear that if Russia did somehow attack, I don't know, Germany or Japan or China attacked Japan or Taiwan. I don't think the U.S. would actually use nukes to respond. So that's going to become a parent at some point, which means that South Korea and Japan and Germany and Canada they can instantly go nuclear because they're very rich high-tech industrialized countries. And I think that they will. And so but let's imagine that Ukraine had never given up their nukes after the fall of the USSR. Budapest memorandum. Yeah, so let's imagine every country has nukes, even the backwards world. It's going to be a more dangerous world in a way, but maybe a world with no war. I don't know. No. The problem is when people can print nukes in their basement with a 3D printer. That's going to be the problem because there's Muslims out there that will use that. And crazy terrorists, but for a certain point in time, I think that, but I think that's where we're heading, but right now the U.S.

"Your global looking ahead of the top stories for investors in the coming week. The Philippines is going to be in the spotlight, joining us now to tell us why Bloomberg daybreak Asia host Brian Curtis had done prisoner. John, we take a look at Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos junior's upcoming state visits to Singapore and Indonesia. This may be a good time to tease out the direction of what the new president means by developing an independent foreign policy. Independent of what is the obvious question, once again, the Philippines will find itself trying to maneuver carefully between the United States and China as it moves forward with foreign policy. Joining us now is Bloomberg's Andrea kalonzo to discuss this. Andrea, thanks very much for joining us. So he'll visit Indonesia from September 4th to the 6th and then Singapore from September 6th to the 7th, and obviously there are a lot of very interesting discussions there. But let's go back to what I outlined a few moments ago about this delicate balance between handling the U.S. and China. What can we expect there? Okay, so as you mentioned in your intro, Marcos has been doubting his independent foreign policy. So he has said that national interest will always be the guide to his foreign policy direction. If we can recall, this is the same thing that his predecessor ridiculous has said in his 6 years as president. So we can say that this is kind of a continuation of what the previous administration has said. So he has also said that the Philippines will be a friend to all in an enemy to none. So he has market ancestor repeated this as a candidate and now as president. So he has emphasized cooperation and consensus and regarding the South China Sea. He has also said that he will not abandon even one square inch of territory there. So that will entail really having a balancing app between China and the U.S. if you can recall the Philippines is a former U.S. colony. So we have maintained strong military ties with the U.S.. We are the U.S. the USSR defense treaty ally here in Philippines. Then we have China Duterte, the former president, moved the Philippines closer to China in the past 6 years and markos coming in during the past few months have also indicated that he will foster those sites with China. So typically Philippine presidents visit neighboring ASEAN countries first before they kind of move themselves onto the international stage, can you give us kind of a basic view of the current view of mister Marcos when it comes to ASEAN? So yeah, so that's correct. Duterte visited the assay and first Southeast Asian nations first during his term. And that's, well, frankly, that's because of practical decisions because those are the neighboring countries and their closer to visits. And then regarding Marcos, he has said, he has described the assay and it's a very important regional organization to the ambassadors from Southeast Asian nations have paid him. A month after he won the presidency in May. So Marco said this in the context of pandemic recovery. He said that the Southeast Asian nations will be important partners in pandemic recovery and his goal is to really to recover or regain the Philippines status as one of the fastest growing economy in the region pre-pandemic. And then another thing, another aspect by which Marcos wants to engage fellow and our neighboring Southeast Asian nations is in resolving territorial tensions with China. So the Philippines has ongoing territorial dispute with China regarding portions of the South China Sea. And Marcus wants to tap the in resolving the conflict. And in particular, he wants the code of conduct being developed between China and Association of Southeast Asian Nations to be finished. He views this as an important step towards resolving this conflict with China. Andrea, thanks very much for joining us Bloomberg's Andrea kalonzo in Manila. I'm Brian Curtis along with Doug Krishna.

On Thursday Biden said too much of what's happening in the U.S. is not normal. I'm Jim Forbes. You're listening to Bloomberg opinion. I'm Ronnie Quinn. The death is a speak of Mikhail Gorbachev elicited a massive response, a huge statesman presiding over the death of a system, the whole way of governance, and a body of countries as they became. Also, maybe a little bit of trepidation in underscoring a final legacy for Gorbachev. I spoke with Bloomberg opinions, Clara Ferrera Marquez. Clara, what for you is the lasting legacy of Mikhail Gorbachev. I think it's a really interesting and the far more difficult question than I think a lot of people realize and particularly in the west where we have a very particular view of Gorbachev and what he what he did and what he represents for us for many of us is the end of the evil empire. It's in reality a lot more complicated. So he was clearly a man of the system, a man who wanted to work within the system. Obviously he did not start out to collapse the Soviet Union. That was unintended consequence largely of economic and co reform. He changed the world. He was able to end the Soviet Union largely peacefully and that is remarkable. But also a lot of the ill conceived economic reforms that he brought in the chaos that he left in his wake allowed kleptocracy to take root and in many ways he is responsible for where Russia is today, Russia is two, of course, Putin, many of us in the west who supported the system, but the way that the Soviet Union came to an end, the economic plundering that was possible was to a degree because of Gorbachev. Right, now we had volodymyr yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher on the show a few weeks ago who actually has been tweeting something similar, he says that Gorbachev is an eternal problem of Russian democracy that he's almost a symptom of its incapacity to stick with principles he wanted a democratize the USSR, but finally back to Russia, fascism. Now obviously, this is coming from a Ukrainian philosopher who is experiencing the war. But there is some truth to that, right? There's a little bit more of a complicated legacy than just he presided over the end of the USSR. And I think if you think about some as a bit of a political Rorschach test. So to us in the west he's the man that Margaret Thatcher said she could do business with. For many in the former Soviet states, he's demand that brought down the wall. But for Russians and I think in particular what matters for us as we look at this today and we think about which end of August early September 2022 is really what he means for the Putin regime. And so then he is the man who lost an empire. The man who brought national humiliation to a great nation. And I think that's really very, very important in understanding where we are today. So just to go back to perestroika in Glasgow's those reforms were life-changing events, countries, state changing events. Is there any remnants of those left in Russia? I mean, obviously the last few months have changed the story completely, but even before that, were there any remnants of what Gorbachev had introduced? Well, that's a difficult one. I'd say almost almost no. So if you think about the three things that he really wanted to bring, he really wanted a thriving economy. He wanted openness and he wanted democracy

And so in setting these goals, the utilities were forced to go out and contract for really expensive power that had financial implications for all of the utilities. But when it came to making sure that the utilities made good on these targets, that was left to the California public utilities commission. And frankly, that was the sexy place to work within the agency.

"When governments fall, we usually look and we remember, when the government of Afghanistan fell last summer in the Taliban took over, we'll never forget that. When Vietnam completely collapsed when we barely were able to get our troops off. We looked and we remembered. In 1917, when the Bolsheviks took over the government of Russia, they took over the SARS and they implemented their own communist Marxist war against the west, people who were alive at the time and historians they never forget that when governments fall, it's worthy of notice. You are witnessing the dissolution of a government. And not a government in the traditional sense, but a separate type of government, not the USSR, not Cuba, but instead the rule of the administration of Silicon Valley.

Because if you don't allow that diversity, if you don't permit individuals to say the truth as they see it, or to voice their opinion, as they believe it, then you know what, you're no better off, you're no better than the USSR.

"Repeating what Lukashenko is saying and just following him in any possible way. I mean, Lukashenko has been playing with Putin and this game of creating kind of the USSR with how they call it their union between Russia and Belarus for many, many years. And Lukashenko is as crazy as Putin in his views and history and ideologies, everything. He does give some interviews for BBC and he was trying to be very, very arrogant, which was very explicit because he was like, well, he doesn't really know much, but he just hates the bus. It sounds like he didn't know anything about the west, but for some reason he just hated it. And it annoyed me so much because it sounds like you have no idea what's happening. He just said something so I can't remember precisely what it was. But it was something about Brexit that just doesn't make any sense to any person actually follows the news. And I was like, okay, so like Putin, you are saying the west is bad. The rest is dead and all of this stuff, but you have no idea what you're talking about. So I'm afraid until Lukashenko is in power. It doesn't seem like there is anything. It's an exciting going from Belarus. Let me ask you two questions. One is very simple. Where are people mostly heading to escape from the war in Ukraine? You said you have some friends and cousins going to cross the border. Are they going mainly to Poland or where to? So it depends where you are. Sam Ukrainians would try to go to west in Ukraine, especially those based in regions or in the capital of Ukraine in some western regions. But since it doesn't look like it's very safe that the moment as well, I feel like the sound will try to go to Moldova, some will try to go through many, some will try to go to Poland. Obviously, maybe today they will make an announcement about accepting refugees as well. So just we don't know for now, but Poland is probably one of the first places that Ukrainian Ukrainians would think of going to now. And the other question someone even ask here on the chat is this is possible this invasion is chaos, so it continental or World War. And I want to compliment this question with the following. Is by reading Putin's statements and his list of demands, one of them is not only preventing Ukraine from joining NATO and preventing further expansion of the alliance, but also rolling back all the military infrastructure installed in the Baltics are in the NATO expanded countries after 1997. So he wants to roll back back to 1997. And I also want to ask this to Matthew. Do you think

Bernie Sanders Is Making Some Good Points About Russia
"I want to talk about Russia and Ukraine. There was a op-ed that Bernie Sanders wrote today and we saw Glenn greenwald is commenting on it. Basically saying, hey, this is like usual Russia bashing that's become sort of like the throwaway line. Democrats have to put in anything that they say or do. But then he makes some great points about how in 1962 we were on the brink of a nuclear war with Russia when they put nuclear warheads 60 miles off the coast, 90 miles off the coast of the United States. Now we're talking about bringing Ukraine into NATO potentially. This was started under Bush, and if we observe the spheres of influence argument, what are we to make of that? Does Russia have valid concerns to be nervous about what the U.S. is doing with our partners in NATO? Look, I almost spit out my coffee when I was reading it this morning because I'm like, this is Bernie Sanders, right? The same Bernie Sanders, you know, we know he's a Russia expert. He took his honeymoon there in Moscow back in the I believe back in the 60s when it was full on communist USSR. We would know that he loved the politics over there, but it seems that again, you get these glimmers, every once in a while of nationalism from Bernie Sanders. If these glimmers of populism, where he realizes that, you know what? War isn't always the answer, the way it seems to be for so many in Washington, D.C.. And so this is something where I think that just like TPP, I'm going to have to go ahead and say, Bernie Sanders, like you said, is making some very good points because he says Russia as a state does feel concerned about the encroachment of NATO. I'm just reading from this. To put it simply. Russia like the United States still has an interest in the security policies of its neighbors. Does anyone really believe that the United States would not have something to say, for example, if Mexico was able to form a military alliance with the U.S.
Why You Should Stop "Trusting the Science"
"How many times have you heard we have to trust the science? That the science is settled, you have to wear two masks, you have to get vaccines plus boosters, you must stay at home, you must shower with a mask. The science is settled. How many times have you seen the signs on the side of highways, sponsored by pharmaceutical companies? We trust the science around here. Nancy Pelosi to Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer. We are the pro science party. Now, we've done a fair amount of work in the fields of where this word science came from. And why the cult of science has dominated American life over the last two years. The idea of being able to master the natural world and the human condition through scientific inquiry is nothing new. Science absent of morality is how you get some of the most horrific totalitarian dictatorships like the national socialist Workers Party in Germany or the USSR. Much of it was derived from the industrial revolution where the Germans themselves with Hegel and then marks, they looked at science as a means to the end. All we need is groups of experts in Walt off rooms that had a lot of power and they were able to organize society the way they saw fit. They know better than you. Now, if you look at kind of the push towards the acceptance of the term science over the last 20 or 30 years, there's been some primary actors that have been behind this. One of which is Bill Nye, the science guy. If you grew up in public schools like I did starting in 6th grade, I went to public school in the suburbs of Chicago, almost once a week I would say there was almost an infomercial that was shown with Bill Nye, the science guy. Talking about how cool science was. He would do chemistry experiments he would do physics, demonstrations. He would talk about all sorts of different kind of wrinkles in the natural world that we have discovered. And science was platformed in the eyes of young people in some ways rightfully in some ways dangerously as an irrefutable Pinnacle of human existence.

"Repercussions of trying to cut off ties like that would be more serious So the goal should really be to figure out what are the vulnerabilities What are we trying to prevent What are the technologies that we are trying to protect And that we don't want U.S. money supporting within China What are the companies within China specifically that are say working with Chinese military or the Chinese surveillance state that we don't want investment going into Drawing a line fairly targeted line around the areas that we want to be careful about And then working to build multilateral support for these kinds of restrictions To that exact point you write in this editorial that the commerce department can help by moving faster to publish a list What is it that commerce department could do in this area So the department has been asked to provide lists of foundational technologies from certain elements of quantum computing to biologics and so on Areas that could possibly have dual use applications for both civilian and military groups or that are key to U.S. technological advantage And it's very very difficult to do Obviously because most new technologies can have some sort of dual purpose to them So it's understandable that they've taken time But companies to reduce uncertainty need to know what it is they need to be worried about And investors as well So I think just laying some of this out now would provide some clarity And then you can always amend the list Rather than having to sort of vague threat hanging over investors that restrictions might be coming clarity I think would be helpful to everyone Just sit here jarry Thanks for taking time and joining us on Bloomberg opinion Thank you very much Coming up on Bloomberg opinion the threat of USSR.

Gene Editing and Recovery from Radiation
"Welcome to the talking biotech podcast. Weekly podcast about agriculture medicine with an emphasis on biotechnology and the good things we can do for people and the planet names kevin volta. I'm a professor and a podcast host. Who cares about science communication mostly around the area of biotechnology. So today we wanted to talk about something interesting. Radiation and radiation has many places in biology. Of course our resistance to it. The problems that can be caused from it as well as its use as a therapeutic agent used to induce genetic variability when we do plant breeding but has some deleterious downsides and they've represented barriers both for remediation of radioactive. Waste as well as if there's issues with the side effects of radiation therapies for cancer. So i was excited to learn about some work. That's happening. The innovative genomics institute out at the university of california berkeley. There's work that's gone. Underway under darpa funding to attempt to use gene editing to solve some of the problems associated with radiation exposure. Mostly in acute radiation sickness. and so. today we're going to talk to dr feodor urnov. He's a professor in molecular and cell biology department at the university of california berkeley as well as the director for translation technology at the innovative genomics institute associated with berkeley. So welcome to the podcast. Dr urnov thank you for having. This is really a pleasure. I was really excited to read about this. Because it seems like such a cool project that's long overdue and i can certainly understand arpaio's interest in this. I tried to frame a little bit of the problem ahead of time. But could you give me a better explanation of. What is the problem with acute radiation sickness. And where do we see it across. The bay from the berkeley campus is one of the best if not the best teaching hospital in america. Ucsf in the chair of radiation oncology. Dr mary fung has told me how frustrating it is to have. Her patients succumb to cancer of the abdomen and of the pelvis. Oh things like pancreatic liver you. Try a variant. Despite the fact that she has a powerful weapon to pure those cure is a big word and the weapon is radiation as you pointed out as all technologies radiation has had a positive side in the negative side the negative side. Of course we think about weapons. We think about radiation disasters such as mobile in in the ussr. Where i went grow was born and raised three mile island Shema but then on the positive side radiation is used to determine how our teeth are doing or our lungs are doing which is particularly timely given. What's happening right now. In our nation and has also a really really powerful medicine to cure cancer. The reason it's not more widely available is what's technically known as dose limiting city and in english. That means you cannot give enough of the cure before it side effects overpower its benefits. So in dr funk's practice the physician. So i'm regurgitating. What i learned from her and other had the honor to collaborate with. She has a patient with a with a major cancer of the abdomen. Or or the pelvic area she can irradiate the tumor and eradicated. The patients do not recover because tissues that are inevitably also effective so the gut and the bone. Marrow where are aquatic stem cells live are irreversibly damaged by the radiation itself. So the patients Die off either lethal diarrhea which cannot be stopped using anything

To reveal our common humanity. Marina, welcome a real honor to have you. Hello and thank you very much for inviting me to such inspirational show. I'm honored. Thanks. Can we start by talking about your childhood in Yugoslavia and your mom and your dad, please? Yes, Well, I was born and raised in at that time Yugoslavia. It's now Servia. I was very curious child I had about 100 plastic pianos, but at the age of four Um, my parents really didn't know what exactly to do with all my energy with all my curiosity, So at that point, they sent me to a classical boy school at the age of four. And then later on, I started even swimming because they said, I still have extra energy that I have to burn somewhere well, and at the time Yugoslavia was a communist country. When I was raised in the eighties, and we I have to say had the kind of everything free if you're very, very talented than you have an extra, so I went to two schools. My father was a economist and professional soccer player. So I can say that I learned from him a love for people and passion and kindness. And my mother is attorney And she was running the pension fund in forming Yugoslavia during the teacher's time, so she was very disciplined. She was very proper and she loved art. So if you put all those Characteristics together. I can say That's me and I have not had any free time. I was always kind of working on Excel Ng in whatever I started, so it was first piano and that became my really first love. Um, at the time, my professors, especially classical ballet teachers, said Listen, She is bored, very bored at this ballet class, and she's constant. She's standing by the piano accompanist, I think is best for you if you take her to a music school so she can start piano. It took them a while until I get a real one. By the age of seven. So about three years I had to convince them that death, my love and also we lived in a very small apartments. My room was S so small that they had to put upright piano on one side of the wall. On the other side of the wall was my parent's bed. So I have to tell you my father would call my mother every day to ask if I stopped practicing so he could come home and s. Oh, there you go. After very, very shortly Two years later, after and the age of nine. I wanna first piano. Petition. In that time Yugoslavia I was performing all ready for the audiences of 2000. It was my first solo concert. I perform Chopin, Beethoven brands. I started at the time by one of the world's great piano, mass masters and their many Russians who were coming through Yugoslavia to go to the rest because it was still USSR. They were closed, and so one of them could stand in beginner picked me and another girl to work with me. So one of the first bigger concerts and actually, one of my recordings were with send Peter's books always Where I perform most of piano concertos and that was turned into a CD and later became one of the best South classical CDs in 11, European countries.

Taking Advantage of Mr. Bear by JL Collins on Tax Avoidance Investment Strategies
"I decided it was time to cuddle up to mr bear and let him help me. Avoid some capital gains taxes as regular readers. Here no for the past few years. We have been homeless and nomadic. It's a lifestyle that agrees with us and when we'd like to keep doing for some time however at some point age will force us to settle down. The trick is deciding when that is act too soon and we miss out on xtra wandering wait too long and i might not have the energy left to easily make the transition but sometime in the next five years. There's a better than even chance that will be buying a final years house to that end we've had money growing. In a taxable account invested in of course vitae ax as i track this against the eventual sale to fund the house. I realized that we be on the hook. For a twenty percent capital gains tax until at least this new market selloff suddenly that capital gain was disappearing indeed with an eight percent drop today it would be completely gone so with the market down about six point. Three or four percent figuring that we'd be close enough. I put in the cell order and moved from visa x to our money market fund conveniently by the market's close. It was down seven point six percent almost exactly when i need it. Good luck so with this sale. I now have the capital freely available and will oh little to no capital gains tax at the same time then sold an equivalent amount of e b t lx bonds and bought v tsa stocks in an ira. Because this was done in an ira. There's no tax consequence. The net effect is that i have moved bonds from the ira and stocks into it again. While freeing up money for the purchase with no capital gains tax to be paid at the end of the day our asset allocation remains the same. This is not a bet that the market has bottomed cuna. Wouldn't you have been better off if the market had continued to rise even if you had to pay the capital gains tax of course but as i learned playing poker. You play the cards. You're dealt not the ones you wish you had. If i had a crystal ball i would have sold before the drop and happily pay the tax. But i didn't. This market declines simply offered an opportunity. And i took it. I prefer the market. Never went down. And i always could sell it again. The market doesn't care about my preferences. Why not wait to see. If the market drops further that way you not only avoid the capital gain but gets a harvest to capitol lost. I want to preserve as much capital as possible for the future purpose. Selling break even is the sweet spot for this gambit. Doesn't this run afoul of the irs. Wash sale rules my thanks to the several readers who raises question and especially to john are who suggested i added here. This was my reply to james. The first who raises question wash sales apply to selling at a loss from the article. You linked to quote loss from wash sales of stock or securities. This ruling provides that if an individual cells stock or securities for a loss and causes his or her ira or roth ira to purchase substantially identical stock or securities within a specified period the loss on the sale of the stock or securities is disallowed under the section ten ninety one of the and the individuals basis. In the ira or roth ira is not increased by virtue of section ten ninety one d end quote in my case the objective was to sell at break even with neither. A loss oregon. Because life isn't perfect. There will likely be a small gain or loss when the dust settles. But it'll be too small to worry about. Why did you move into a money. Market fund rather than bonds with v bt lx mostly because it was easier. And i wanted to get the order in before the market closed i might move into bonds later. Wait but are in bonds.

"U. S was when the Soviet Union the USSR, what later got called the Evil Empire by Ronald Reagan. Sent up a satellite successfully in the US walk up. To the sweat off something coming from out of space on destroying the U. S. And there was a Moment where people came together. And achieved something that lasted a very long time, which is us superiority in space. I'm hopeful that we're getting closer to despotic moment. Is the building building building and I think the combination of inequality and injustice have come together. But I'm not completely optimistic because I don't expect this to be a top down process. If you're hoping for top part down process, it's not gonna happen. This has got to be bottom up. It really has got to come from the grass roots and develop into a lasting movements. The companies have gotten it. Because the employees care and the employees have put enormous pressure on companies to be more socially responsible. I don't think governments quite get it is yet so it's gonna have to be a sustained movement, but I think we're closer to the Sputnik moment than we've been for a long time. That's a great point of make, and I should say, by the way that if anyone who's watching one starts a question Please do go ahead with a cure a function on the screen and we would love to bring in some of your questions into the discussion of B. Proceed But I should say that I think you made a great point them home because again. When I think about what's happened the last six months and compare it to 2000 and eight there two things that leap out of me. One is that the CEO this time round do appear to be sprouting a social conscience. In a way that they absolutely were not in 2000 and eight for the most part on do you know you could sit there and say, Well, this is just about their own survival, and they're concerned about, you know, sort of pitch books of the gate. But certainly the mood in the C suite changed on the other thing that I'm very struck by is the degree to which millennials on younger people and Mama and I both got teenagers about same age. Um, absolutely engaged. And to my shame my daughter through her social media posts has bean learning about the news on average, about a day or two ahead of me. Because they're all busy talking to each other's teenagers on she is red hot, engaged in a way that I wasn't at her age. And I don't think that really teenagers were back in 2008. Either of you guys got any thoughts about that? Well, what I think one of the things that is the case. I mean, I think this is gonna be one of the big challenges for in the 21st century for companies that I want. I want to lead in the 21st century. They're gonna have to deal with the fact that Consumers and in fact, especially younger consumers care about these issues where there's thies social questions or whether it's the environmental climate change questions they're having to pay attention to these, and in many Cases, these young people whether this till the weather, the teenagers or college or at work, now have a voice. They get to organize the getting engaged to get to speak and and and and they find their ways into working for these companies, and in those companies, they have a voice so quite often, and it's quite intrigued to see what the I suspect part of the response we're seeing from business is in part driven by that, but I think it's also impart driven by the fact that they're starting to see the reality around them. I mean, look at the range of issues whether the social questions the environmental questions But even questions around the 24th century comes gonna have to deal with like, how do we deal with the use of technology in our systems and our economies in our business where there's everything from privacy or the role of platforms and these questions? These have become real questions that companies in the 21st century having to now really think about I think everything's changed said is right. Think companies generally realize you can't be a good house in a bad neighborhood that you've got it care about the neighborhood. But I think there's something else that I know that you very aware of Julian. Is that there's a level of embarrassment because within weeks off this crisis while the unemployment wait was shooting up, while more than 30 million Americans have lost their jobs at that point. Cos We're raising money left right and center at very low rates. Wall Street had disconnected from Main Street. And that's because the policy response was very effective when it came to financial side and it is Cos and which investors that benefit from from these asset markets. It's not the person in the street. So there's also part of an embarrassment that Cos the big companies expect and owners of financial assets are doing so much better than the rest of the world. And there's a fear that comes with that. Which is you know you You said it wants to pitch fork. You know they come. So I think as much of it is that there's a positive has also less charitable and element going on here..

Do Not Adjust Your TV
"Their feet a lot of the time though. It's simply a matter of broadcasting a stronger signal than the station is the equipment can be sophisticated but it can also be made of scrap. Parts from things like ham radios. The motives vary widely from frustration. To it's just a prank bro. to we don't even know what heads up. There will be real clips in this episode and some of them are weird with a capital. W t f the earliest signal intrusion anywhere in the world that we know of happened back in nineteen sixty six in the soviet city of kaluga and almost triggered a nuclear war. If you know only one thing about world history in the second half of the twentieth century it would probably be the cold war decades of itchy trigger finger tension between the us and the us are one night. The regular broadcast was suddenly interrupted by a seemingly official emergency warning that nuclear war had just broken out with the united states. Many viewers took the message seriously running for cover and seeing their final prayers thankfully as what happened with stanislav petrov. Nineteen eighty-three when he correctly guessed that the early warning system was malfunctioning. When it reported incoming us bombers you can hear all about that way back in episode eleven for want of a nail government. Officials weren't quick to react a good thing to at the time. The ussr had over seven thousand nuclear weapons at their disposal. Ducted eighteen nuclear weapons tests that year alone. The us had nearly four times as many. But that's neither here nor there. It would only take fifty hiroshima sized bombs to plunge the world into nuclear winter. The soviets weren't messing around. If one official had thought another department had put out jim. It message about the us attacking. That could've been the start of a very fast extinction level event thankfully. The officials didn't panic at least not officially it would later be found that a teenager had hacked the station. His name was never released possibly because of his age and possibly to save him from retaliation from his neighbors or maybe it was a made up. Cover story tin foil hat. Nuclear war became a running theme for signal takeovers and it wasn't confined to the cold war in june of two thousand seven a show called panorama was part of the regular programming in the city of prague. In what is now czechia. The show was meant as a sort of tourist program to display calm scenic areas around the country. Like a tv travel brochure. This particular episode started off as usual with long. Lingering shots of picturesque locales around prague. Without warning the screen was bathed in a blinding flash and mushroom cloud began to climb into the sky above the city. This would be disturbing enough to see on its own but panorama was usually aired live meaning terrified viewers. At home were left. They had just witnessed a nuclear strike on their hometown. The hijacking was seamless. There had been no static or breaks in the tv signal. It was so realistic. In fact that even government officials and authorities believed the explosion was real. Luckily it doesn't take many phone calls or glances out of a window to confirm that there is not in fact a mushroom cloud rising above a blast crater in the middle of the city authorities soon turned their energy to finding the perpetrators. It would eventually be discovered that a guerrilla artistic collective called sto hoven which is known for their extravagant hoaxes and pranks were the culprits. Apparently this was a piece of performance art whether or not making hundreds of people think they're about to die.
Avoiding war in the Armenia-Azerbaijan conflict
"It wherever you listen to podcasts. The Armenia Azerbaijan fighting could spiral into a larger regional conflict by Ian Bremmer. Intense fighting has erupted nagorno-karabakh a small enclave in the southern Caucasus mountains setting the entire region on edge. This is a fight primarily between Armenia and Azerbaijan two former Soviet republics with long-held grievances over land. The volve of Russia Turkey and others raises the stakes for where a war might be headed. An essence, this is a story of a powerful. Changing history by drawing arbitrary lines on a map that would later spark conflict. The states of Armenia and Azerbaijan were pulled into Moscow or and became part of the Soviet Union in the nineteen twenties though nagorno-karabakh, a mountain region about the size of Delaware was dominated by Armenians. Matt makers made it part of the Jani Soviet republic for decades are Mian complaints about the region's status were ignored and in the final days of the USSR war erupted tens of thousands were killed and more than one million were forced from their homes. A Russian brokered system in nineteen, ninety, four left nagorno-karabakh as part of Azerbaijan but ethnic Armenians with backing from the Armenian government drove most Azerbaijanis from the territory and declared it an independent republic. Low level fighting has continued over the years and an eruption of violence in two thousand, sixteen killed at least two hundred people. There is no peace treaty and nothing has been resolved. In recent years, the governments of Armenia and Azerbaijan have sent positive signals. Her budget president and Armenia's prime minister opened the first ever military hotline between the two countries and twenty eighteen and talks brokered by Russia France and the United States. Produced a joint statement and Twenty nineteen that appeared to set the stage for a treaty. But momentum was lost and an eruption of fighting this summer led to popular demand in both countries for a military reckoning. The likely never know who fired the shot that ignited these latest clashes, but dozens of soldiers and some civilians have been killed Armenia and Azerbaijan have each declared martial law outsiders are scrambling to put out the fire UN secretary general, Antonio Terrace as called for a ceasefire. The web of foreign ties in this story is complicated Turkey's president wretched type air to on eager for an opportunity to boost his popularity and shift. The subject from his country's struggling economy fully backs is fellow Turkic Muslims in Azerbaijan while others call for talks air to one insists that Azerbaijan must take matters into its own hands to Armenia occupation of the disputed region. Vladimir Putin's Russia has maintained relations with Azerbaijan and sold weapons to both countries but Russia has a military base in Armenia and is bound by treaty to defend Armenia in war. This means that as in Syria and in Libya is ongoing civil war Russia and NATO member Turkey have A. Interests here Iran which borders both Armenia and as her Badgen has offered to mediate politically active ethnic Armenian populations in both. France and the United States bring those governments into the push for negotiations. Adding to the sense of urgency to halt the fighting nagorno-karabakh is a corridor for pipelines that transport oil and gas from the Caspian. Sea to the international marketplace. If the current clashes explode into full blown war, the damage could be much greater than in the nineteen nineties. This war would be waged with twenty first century, heavy weapons provided by Russia and Turkey. Air To
Enclave on edge: Armenia and Azerbaijan
"Armenia and either by Jan, rejected international calls for a ceasefire yesterday after deadly clashes broke out on Sunday pushing the two countries to the brink of war. Both have declared martial law and total military mobilization. At least one hundred people have been killed in the fighting which is involved artillery strikes and air power. The two former Soviet republics are locked in a decades-old conflict over the disputed province of Nagorno Carla. This marks the second time in less than three months that the countries have come to blows. This time edging closer to all out war one, which could ensnare of Turkey and Russia. We haven't seen detail death tolls from the by Johnny side, but the overall death toll now seems to be well north of one hundred peaches. Ski Is our Turkey correspondent that would make the fighting in nagorno-karabakh the heaviest since two, thousand, sixteen, when at least two hundred people were killed and on pace to be the worst since one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, four, the end of the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, and what is that fight about it is about a region known as nagorno-karabakh disputed province legally recognized as part of by John. But controlled by Armenian forces to go back in history. Now, going to cut about had been a part of the Kingdom of a bar via over two thousand years ago and has been real sins by a succession of Empires. But under the Soviets nagorno-karabakh was a part of by John and as the USSR crumbled clashes erupted between the Armenian majority of the region which sought union with Armenia or independence, and the by Johnny minority and these devolved into the brutal war in which about thirty thousand people were killed and about a million displaced. Included episodes of ethnic cleansing and several atrocities. The war ended with a ceasefire in nineteen, ninety four, and as I mentioned or mean forces have held onto nagorno-karabakh itself, end to seven districts surrounding the region. So it's been despite the ceasefire still disputed since then correct not only has been disputed. There have been regular skirmishes the one in two, thousand sixteen, and as recently as this year in July, the sixteen people were killed in. Areas north of GonNa cut above thousands of Azerbaijanis responded to this also to the death of renowned as her by Johnny General by taking to the streets demanding that their government retake all of nagorno-karabakh. So why is it the conflict? This time seems to be escalating. So quickly, analysts see the signs of a much broader military offensive by as by John and a return to a much broader conflict than what we saw in previous years. Some of them told me the saw this as a much better prepared campaign with more troops and fighting on all parts of the line of contact or the frontline, and we're seeing is in addition to heavy weaponry, infantry helicopters and masses of drones on both sides. There's a threat that fighting could spill over into civilian areas and also into areas where pipelines. Deliver gas and oil from by John to Turkey through. Georgia. So it's clear on the ground then that this is a much more serious conflict but I mean, what set it off? There's a belief on both sides that there is no political solution, the new Armenian Prime Minister Nicol. Chagnon in his speech last year called for the reunification of the crowd about Armenia. Azerbaijan side feels that the only way it can recover at least parts of going to cut about or the outlying provinces is through force. Perhaps because of covid nineteen, there has been next to no international mediation of the conflict since this spring and that is said to have led to the clashes in July and the failure to mediate in the aftermath of July may have precipitated. What we're seeing today people in the region say that to some extent they saw this. Coming for miles and international community failed to prevent it and what is the international community's response. Now that it's escalated, the U. N. Security Council has called on the two sides to put an end to the fighting the European Union, the United States and Russia have also called for a ceasefire unlike other international actors Turkey has urged by John to push forward and edge of type air to one Turkish president said on September twenty eighth that peace would only come to. The region wants Armenia withdrew from Nagorno cut about his spokesperson added the next day that Turkey was quote unquote fully ready to help Azerbaijan, recover the enclave reports indicate that Mr Government has sent Syrian mercenaries who help Azerbaijan. It is also providing drones to the other by Johnny Army and our media accused Turkey of shooting down one of its warplanes, which is a charge that Turkish officials have denied and you mentioned Russia calling for a ceasefire how is Russia involved escalation? On the part of other by John or further, Turkish involvement could also drag in Russia which sells arms to Azerbaijan, but also has a mutual defense pact with Armenia. So in theory because not going cut about is not legally part of Armenia Russia is not under any commitment to defend Armenia in case of an attack on they're going to cut about and so far. In fact, Russia has only gone so far as to ask Turkey, to back its calls for a ceasefire. If Armenia dust come under attack by Azerbaijan or by Turkey, it seems Russia will have no choice but to defend Armenia and do you think that's the way things are heading I mean is there a way to calm the tensions here so far calls for a ceasefire have fallen on deaf ears it may be that Azerbaijan will succumb to Russian pressure and that both sides will. Lay Down Arms. It may be that other by John will simply settle for partial gains especially in the seven district near not going to talk about and declare victory, which would placate public opinion at home but this may yet get out of control.
Travel To Bulgaria
"Bulgaria is a small and mysterious country. It's one of those lands that Americans just don't visit very much. It's long faced east impact in communist times it was famously subservient to the USSR. But. Of course, there's lots more to see in Bulgaria and you can learn about a fascinating culture. When you go there to Bulgarian guides, joined us in our studio to help give us a better insight and a little better appreciation of the cultural. Bulgaria. We're joined by Stephan Bush job and you're. Stephanie thanks for being here. Thank you our pleasure now. Americans we don't know as much about Bulgaria as we know about Poland or Germany or Italy, or Greece that. It's not in the news it's signing country of about seven million people probably, not not a lot of Bulgarians have emigrated to the United States like Polish people. So many know when I think of Bulgaria I think of a back in the communist times a little country that was more friendly with Moscow, than the other countries in eastern Europe in fact, your leader little sort of an communist dictator two-door shifts of Shipka He. Actually proposed that Bulgaria joined the USSR and become the Sixteenth Republic. Is that true that? Yes that's still in the early nineteen sixties shifts for wanted us to be so close to the Soviets. So he proposed to become the sixteen republic. Why so subservient? The USSR you know because as a small country, we have always tried to find our big brother because you're right there in the middle of the Habsburgs and Russia and and. The meat of all those crossroads and your. Little so easy to gobble up if you're a big giant country absolutely, but fortunately, the Soviets were in the middle of the Cuban missile crisis saw they were busy and they were not interested in having trouble themselves Khrushchev or whoever was the dictator say There's a joke in becan communist time. The biggest animal in the world was the Bulgarian pig because the head was in Bulgarian. The body was in Moscow I. Was that funny. So many years ago he mentioned the pick when you have the body of the pick of the good meat is there. So we produced Oh the good stuff food and it was expected to the Soviet. Union. So practically, this is the reason why still nowadays in Russia they remember all those fruits and very funds legal, Gary, all good stuff that came from Bulgaria. So the big shot in Moscow and wind as well. Of course, all the Bulgarian wine. Oh, the best bogere in one when Russia. Well today you don't have that problem. You've got wonderful traditional food and drink and and Yuri. What is one thing we should remember about the food of Bulgaria when we visit incredibly fresh everything is fresh. What's been out of the garden? What's IT traditional? A traditional meal I I remember some beautiful soups. You must have a salad. You must argue with Salads and a little bit of Brandy. As world it goes with the Salads. We always have the strong alcohol first, and then we go to the wine and then we go to the beer you start with the strong alcohol yes, we do. We do. Why is that Stephan? It is deep tradition. What my parents belief is that when we have a trunk alcohol to open your perceptions the food, this is the best way to taste it when you have a few sips of follow traditional. Brandy. Code. Of Akia. So when I'm cooking, if people have the strong alcohol, I can actually eat my food. It helps it helps a lot. Gary is the only country in the European Union that has this surreal alphabet I was in Bulgaria when you're on May twenty fourth, that's big celebration. Why does Bulgaria have this unique alphabet and what's the cultural background of that? I remember that day because we were actually fuming Bulgaria episode into our in my hometown. So it is really important to understand these different alphabet because this is an alphabet which helped to spread the Christianity because it's surreal religious named after Saint. And who was his side and his brother Metallica's Methodius and Cyril. So they innovated this alphabet so they could write down the holies holy scripture scriptures and people could read them exactly in idea to have the Christianity. Kuo's to the heart close the. So to understand the holy wisdom to understand the words written, what century was that this was in the eight, hundred, eight, hundred, fifty, five,
What Moon Landing?
"In the nineteen sixties, two things were happening more things are happening to. One it just two things. disclaimer were bottle of wine in the first one is the Cold War, which was basically between the US and the US are that started after the end of World War Two and nineteen, forty eight and lasted until nineteen ninety-one notice how I know when World War Two was. Throwing shade at the orange. I've had wine I'm a little snarky year. Then I'm not upset the way. The second thing was happening was the Vietnam War, which lasted between nineteen, fifty, five, and nineteen, seventy five. I did not think that was when on. Okay. But seriously I didn't realize the lasted that long either I thought it started like late late. Late mid to late sixties and went into the seventies. Yeah. Holy moly history is important because not only does it give us context as to why things happens, but it also serves as a blueprint showing what not to do if anyone literally anyone decided to pay attention in history class but whatever Got I. Him. So I'm fine. So in the nineteen sixties, the US was dealing with two things one they're trying to get the upper hand in and the other they're trying to distract the public from. Does that make sense had wine? Yes. Okay. Basically, it was a perfect time for the US government to distract everybody Hooker Luna verse. Where you're mass please. And this is why they decided to fake the moon landing. Where's the wind. please. Oh happy day. This explain why it started drinking. I'm so happy right now just help it off girl you're in need it I wanna make sure Rebecca some two but no, I don't just doing with to me this is a subject but I chose up my own free will thank you so much. This is going to be amazing. Okay. But why why would we do this? The US was currently racing the USSR to be the first to the moon and the fastest way to do that would be to fake it's. Kinda like when you're never mind. There it is. Oh, we made it two minutes. That's where we learned it from. The Moon and Do to the bad press the Vietnam War Gotten General the moon landing would serve as the. Distraction at the time luckily in this day and age that only have hundreds of people been able to see through the thin veil that is as opposed moon landing but have also been able to poke holes and this historical events. Can we make sure that you know take this is poured slash s please. You can't tell that from my voice I can I only sound this way when it's bullying? Sixties radio. Broadcaster Boys. Here for all of it. So now we're going to dive into reasons why are evidence as to why the moon landing did not happen? Okay. GimMe all of it I is there's no wind on the moon correct in the flag was waving. Yep that's pretty much where we're going. Imagine this iconic scene, the year is nineteen sixty nine. Neil. Armstrong. Neil. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are on the face of this lunar body preparing especially made us flag plant on the moon as they're securing the flag in a never ending show of colonization Oh my God something curious happens the flag starts waving in the winds, which is weird because there is no wind on the moon. The Moon essentially does not have an atmosphere meaning. There is nothing to cause old glory to way proudly in a patriotic breeze. That's
