"And usually the season's over by then. So back to our friends in the new era of genetically engineered vaccine, well, look they like to. Put out press releases a news that are positive. They said you know we got good results on our vaccine. You've seen a couple of those reports in the newspaper promising good results, but they're really early stage. It's like fifty people's vaccine. Here's the great news nobody dropped dead. So now, we can move onto the serious stuff which is recruiting ten, twenty, thirty thousand people and testing it on them in a randomized full blown clinical trial with a placebo group and a dried group of people getting it. That's the. Real test but it doesn't stop the stock market investors from you know using this minor good news to pump up their stocks or move their stock around. The whole thing gets me nervous jared and I know I'm not a lecture here but I'll showed up after this. I get nervous because I think it breeds distrust. If people think you're just maneuvering news around on these vaccines to make money. Well, that's the question that I have is is the public memory short that people don't look back and see that they know they haven't brought to market before. So there there's should probably be a hefty dose of skepticism impracticality here. So I think what happens is the market people the savvy people kind of know what we're talking about with respect to the novelty. Of the platform that's being developed for the current round of Kobe vaccines. But. There's a lot of folks in the stock market. They just see Oh good news out and that lets people sort of you know sell at a higher stock price because the Buzzer goes out there the media aren't always cautious in how they report. Quote Unquote Good News and these guys are in it for the long run right? If they make money. On the basis of a press release last week. Well, that's fine. So they don't really worry too much about the intention span or the memory of folks if they can just generate some buzz, a lot of things. To. Pretty well in the stock market that way well, you're quoted about this and this New York Times piece about a Novia when you do read it and think to yourself well. They were supposedly going to do something for the swine flu in two, thousand nine and Larry Air Zeka, the cancer, and as you said are they haven't actually done Any of it. So it's Not, I mean, by the way we're talking like you know the vaccine is going to be here at the end of the year it's going to be here next year these vaccines may not work and what does it mean to not work? Well it looks like an early small volunteer studies they built up some antibodies but what if they don't build up enough to really prevent you from getting sick or what if the antibodies there but they last I don't know making this up three months and then they go away. It's not going to be really helpful vaccine. You'RE GONNA vaccinate everybody three, hundred, million of US every three months. So you know success isn't just I got a positive response as a sort of hyperbolic said nobody's dead. It's like, show me in a big trial over maybe six months to a year that you get enough of immune response that it's useful against the virus in the real world. Well, we know where the vaccine is working. Here. That's right we believe. Vladimir Putin tells us they fixed it all. I'm glad to see by the way that Putin has joined trump in a they're they're donning their white coats and. Offering US more and more sound medical advice..

Nineteen has received regulatory approval from the country's Health Ministry the vaccine was developed by Moscow's Galilea Institute. Putin. said. It forms stable immunity and passes all necessary safety checks putting also said, one of his daughters has actually received that vaccine Brian this news about Putin and this potential vaccine is huge but I think we do need to take it with a grain of salt. Well, trying to make sense of it, Becky, good, morning Wolf Becky as well. I mean trying to make sense of it. You have what you think are the markets sort of key points, right? Trillions of dollars in stimulus potential payroll tax cuts, all the market themes that we've all been talking about on CNBC all day long powering the markets higher seven days in a row you wake up at whatever four o'clock in the morning and Russia says, Oh, by the way, we have a working vaccine it's been approved by our own institute and I gave it to my daughter says Vladimir Putin so it is a huge developing story and I think. Guys it really whether or not you believe it or not, and there's GonNa be a lot of scientists that want to see the data. What is this vaccine? What is it based on? How many doses are available? How much does it cost as the world get it either way the market did move a little. We were up before the headlines crossed, but it did move a little on this news and I think Becky it does call into question. What happens on the day and whether that day is today or not the day the world gets a working vaccine. What happens? What do we do? Do we know? I, guess drink some vodka do we go out and street down the street I have no idea you know I might look here. Here's what I. Here's how I kind of look at this news just from what we've been hearing in the last several months from experts. There is a huge debate here in the United States taking place about whether these potential vaccine candidates should be fast-tracked even more and brought directly to the public before it. Goes through the extensive as one face to face three testing the phase three testing that you would normally see it's very high bar. They want to make sure that that not only is it safe for people to take. But also that there is efficacy remember last week we heard from the Dr Anthony. FAUCI that there's a a real risk that you are not going to see something that has ninety percent or north in terms of its effectiveness. The FDA is now looking at fifty percent as the floor. If they can get fifty percent effectiveness, they would think that that is great. Sixty, seventy, five percent even better. But you probably not talking about a vaccine where you have ninety three percent effectiveness with the measles shot. My guess is that the Russians have taken a candidate and fast forward it without doing a lot of those types of extensive studies that you're going to see on candidates vaccine candidates here in the united. States and there's a big debate about that. There are people here in the United States are pushing for us to do the very same thing but if you talk to. Some of the more cautious experts, some of the people who look at this they say, no, we do this for a reason it would be disastrous if you approved vaccine and then it turned out it either wasn't safe or that it didn't work very well but people would lose faith in vaccination programs. It's difficult enough to get people to accept vaccinations and do this, and there are more people here and the United States who are anti factors at this point who are raising questions about whether they'd even take it but there's a real reason that you go through these extensive steps and try to make these things positive now again. Totally, a guess, but I don't know how they would have had time to do all the testing that that we are making sure everyone of the vaccination candidates here in the United States has gone through and that's just the safety question Becky I mean look at the day we've got so far from all of the US in European trials. If you could put safety aside has any of them showed yet enough effectiveness in treating this forest enough antibodies antigens or whatever it is they're trying to create. I'm not sure where even quite there yet. Anyway on some of the data points and to that point whether it's a safety concern or. Effectiveness concerned with the Russian vaccine I doubt will get the daytime. You put the news on twitter whatever you WANNA call it and there's a group of people that just don't want to believe anything. They don't want any good news is that people are just bad I don't know why that is like Oh, well, it's not real or it's Russia must be faked maybe it is fake who knows there's a lot of candidates out there not just on the vaccine side but on the antibody side, the treatment cyber general and other things we could have real candidates by September by the way September is next month. Let me give you a few reasons to be optimistic. The are one the reproduction rate has held fairly steady. There are community spreads parts of America, but overall fairly steady. The question I've got is this we're starting to get some indications that Americans maybe closer to so-called hurt immunity than we think because t cell reproduction rates have seen higher in some communities ironically corona queens a few weeks ago or a month ago they found twenty five percent of the population had developed t-cells or anybody's and twenty five percent was not ill indicating that perhaps there is a greater capacity for amazing bodies to generate these t cells and these antibodies than we think in other. Words guys. There's a lot of terrible news out there and a lot of families are suffering but the market I think have looked at the fact that we had nine, hundred, sixty, eight, sixty, million people got avian flu, the Hong Kong flu and Nineteen Sixty eight off and fifty thousand or so Americans ended up dying from that about two hundred thousand in today's numbers no vaccine was ever created for that. You can debate whether or not. We have a vaccine it's still exist in some form. The point is I think the market is at least looked out a year and said life will hopefully be. Much, different and maybe much more normal than it is right now

She explained that for the would be authoritarian, the lying is the point that the ability to create a reality flagrantly staring down conspicuous fact. Is a crucial component of building and sustaining power. And last fall boxes, David Roberts noted bluntly, where such a strategy left unchecked, could lead this sort of cultish, increasingly authoritarian movement takes over the country. In Russia and Turkey and Poland. Right's a disturbingly longer and longer list. We see countries that we thought were democracies devolve into this. In the U. S. So much has happened in the last few years that we thought would never happen. I think we should really loosen up our imaginations as to what can happen when a movement that is convinced that everything it knows and loves is in danger of falling apart movements that's thinking like that unconnected anymore to fax or reality. And got its hands on the power of the federal government is the basic recipe for democracy is falling apart. And so last fall on, the media producer Leia Feder reported on one of those places Poland, a young democracy teetering on unstable ground and where it's far right Nationalist government is intent on rewriting the nation's painful history. For almost a decade, Poland has been in the grip of a conspiracy theory what really happened when a plane crashed in a forest in western Russia, killing Poland's president and dozens of other government officials. The plane had been on route to commemorate another Polish tragedy, a massacre that had occurred in the very same location in 1940. 1973 documentary explored the mystery While the German army is advancing from the West, the Soviets crossed Poland's eastern front court in a method of Polish army collapsed, Um, surrendered. The victors, divided the country down the middle and imprisoned every soldier they captured. Russia took a 215,000 Poland officer Corps were never seen alive again. Many. What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth. Smolinski conspiracy implied that there were dark, mysterious forces continuing to try to manipulate and undermine the Polish nation. It also drawn the larger story of a Poland continually attacked by outsiders and the valiant Polish resistance to threats past and present line Justice Road that narrative electoral victory. And then wrote its electoral victory to further consolidation of that narrative in service of Polish nationalism.

What die near Smolensk, in a forest called catching after decades of opacity and suspicion on investigation in the early nineties, confirmed finally, that it was not Hitler. But Stalin, who had ordered the massacre. And so when, on April 10th 2010 a delegation of 96 Polish politicians and officials traveled from Warsaw to Smolensk. It was in service of remembrance and reconciliation. But what happened instead compounded the national pain. Poland's prime minister burst into tears when he heard the news today that his country's president was killed in a plane crash pilot tried to land in a thick fog at least twice missing the runway. And ignoring the control tower's direction to divert to another city. Not just losing the president of that country. The first lady, the ahead of the army chief of staff, the National Security Office head deputy Parliament speaker, the deputy foreign minister. It was a devastating national tragedy. What's more, the symbolic layering was undeniable. Ah, longstanding tragedy finally solved and a new one appears in its place. And yet, in the immediate moments and days after the crash, there was a kind of common shock. An Applebaum is a journalist and academic beast in Warsaw At the time of the 2010 crash, her husband was minister of foreign affairs in the Polish government, and there was pretty straightforward reporting. About what had happened. What was immediately clear There were people on the ground who saw the crash. So there was a kind of concensus initially about what had happened that it was a terrible Accident and that you know many people of value to the nation had died. But the story started to shift is the investigation into the crash proceeded. Investigators say pilot error was mostly to blame. It became clear that one of the causes of the crash was the fact that the pilots were under pressure to land. The president's delegation had arrived late for the plane. They were running behind schedule as they got closer to smell lens, which was even really an airport. It was a kind of airstrip in the forest. They began to be worried about the fog and the pilots weren't sure they could make the narrow landing. But according to black box recordings, Polish President Lech Kaczynski, head of the opposition party directed the pilots to do it was meant to be the launch of his reelection campaign. So there were cameras there which he knew, and he was very anxious to go under pressure, the pilots tried to make the landing. Instead, they hit a tree, killing all 96 people on board. The president's twin brother, the head of the nationalist right political party in Poland, same parties, the president He didn't like this story. It made the president look bad, more to the point. This is a terrible crash very near to a place where a Nurlita generation of poles were murdered by the Soviet state. Because of that eeriness. People immediately began to speculate that there was actually a different, deeper story that perhaps the Russians caused the crash. Perhaps there was a bomb on the plane. And conspiracy theories began to proliferate online. The president's brother, Nijinsky began openly alluding to them. Kaczynskis Law and Justice Party made unraveling the Smolensk conspiracy. It's key campaign promise once you had bought into their idea that there is a secret conspiracy, possibly involving the Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk. Possibly involving the Russians, and that lots of people high up in the state were implicated in some great big secret plot to kill the president. If you believe that Then you can believe a lot of other things. The point was to get people to believe in a kind of alternative reality to doubt institutions to doubt that the government was telling them the truth, and that was absolutely an attempt to help win an election, But it did more than carve out a new electorate. It created new divides in Polish society. Where one's Polish politics were split between Communists and anti communists around economic policy. Now it was over a vision of history. It was how you see Poland's place in the world. And whether you think secret dark forces air trying to undermine your country and whether you know you need to elect a government of Patriots in order to make sure that doesn't happen. Where you fell on that dividing line affected how you would vote and how you would understand politics for the next several years, And so when line justice one in 2015 it spawned a new kind of power a power based on the willingness to embrace the myth. They fired large numbers of Polish civil servants. Polish members of the foreign service. All kinds of people who work for the government also leaders and board members of state companies and they replaced all of them with people whom they were sure we're loyal. And one element of the loyalty test was belief in this Molinski myth. Smolinski conspiracy implied that there were dark, mysterious forces continuing to try to manipulate and undermine the Polish nation. It also drawn the larger story of a Poland continually attacked by outsiders and the valiant Polish resistance to threats past and present line Justice Road that narrative electoral victory. And then wrote its electoral victory to further consolidation of that narrative in service of Polish nationalism.
Anti-Kremlin protests continue in Russia's far eastern city of Khabarovsk
"Thousands of people took to the streets again in Russia's. Russia's far, east and city of Khobar of yesterday protests against Moscow, and the Kremlin have now been going on for over three weeks. Joining me for more to mark. Gherman Russia analyst stunt senior associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute Good Morning and welcome to the program Mark. Could we first recap what exactly has happened so far? The first protests were sparked by the arrest off a local politician weren't they? They were the local governor elected local governor Sergei for Guile, and this was on fifteen year old charges of involvement with some contract killing, which may or may not be true. He was set me involved in some questionable business. But the widespread assumption amongst the locals was that it was simply because the Kremlin was was peeved at him at the fact that he had stood against their candidate and then just simply rummaged around looking for suitable charges, and since then these protests have continued for, as you said, now, almost a month and it's really. So transmogrify from being about four, how to actually being about Moscow. About Putin and about the sense that in a way, the government in Moscow cares about the rest of Russia outside. It's ring road when it comes to taxing them rather than looking after them. Have those protests course most grow by surprise? Absolutely, an indeed one of the interesting signs of that is precisely that there has been such a clampdown on any references to the protests. In the official TV media, we've seen accounts in the newspapers and online sites, but very much from the televisions point of view, it's nothing and that's a classic sign off what what Moscow does when it doesn't know what to do. It basically tries to by itself, some breathing space, but the trouble is cost nowadays. Russians. Are Very Internet savvy and. And the news has gone out anyway, and at the moment I, think the Russians Russian government is essentially playing a waiting game. They don't really want to try and take on these thousand strong protests especially because the local law enforcement and security agencies frankly don't particularly infused to do so and therefore ain't now waiting hoping that it'll die down to the point when they can actually begin to crack down. Do you think that's going to to the protests? We'll just eventually die down. Well I think the honest answer is, yes. We saw the most recent protests are actually smaller than in previous ones and impact that was because it was rainy rainy day in such like. But because it's not as though, these can can go anywhere what the what, what are the real significance not that somehow this protest will, it will explode and expand. It's precisely what it shows about incipient protests potential within Russia because there's nothing particularly special about kebabs. He's not like he was unusually poor or badly hit by corona virus or whatever, and I think. Right. This is so worrying for the Kremlin, is that sense of fine we can ride out this one protest in this one city. But what does it say about the potential for more protests all across the country exactly disease dimension that. Putin rather strong grip on power buddies this. Really, the case everywhere in Russia also in more distant places such as city in the Far East? Well. This is interesting thing. It's that you might have protests the loyalty to the center. Until. Push comes to shove. We've seen as particularly in Russia east of the Urals for which there is classic. Russian proverb God is in Heaven Bizarre is far away where absolutely Moscow is a very distant force and we've seen it in the past where actually local authorities. Are often in cahoots with local security operators in their own corrupt deals and so forth. But also they feel the same kind of pressures and resentment as ordinary Russians. So I think one of the strengths of Putin's regime has always been that he's understood when not to push when to make concessions. But at the moment in a corona virus has eroded his personal support, the money is tight it's that much harder to make the kind of. Deals Shantou involve splashing the money around that. He has in the past. So it's an interesting question. I mean, yes, he's not gonNA be swept away by this. He's not disappear anytime soon, but the slow corrosion, the legitimacy of his regime is becoming all the more visible exactly, and let's remember this beauty can did now stay in power until two thousand and thirty six thanks to changes to Russia's constitution. Do you think he actually has to address this issue of erosion and do you think people are going to appreciate him for years to come? Well I mean who knows quite how history is going to take him. Frankly, I think probably quite harshly. He will have to address the question of legitimacy, but again I think the thing is that. Putting has been around longtime. He's been power twenty, two years I. Think if trump has exhausted his capacities to reinvent himself he's got these grand national projects that you meant to be about totally reconfiguring national interest structure and health and such like, and it's really quite telling that he's recently pushed back the timeframe for their accomplishment. He clearly has a very ambitious agenda. Agenda, but he doesn't seem to know either how to really accomplish it, and secondly how to afford it. So I think he's he's hoping at the moment that things just get better that do course the virus abates. The economy stabilizes and things will work out not sure how far holding your fingers. A crossing your fingers is really going to be a proper answer. The most go the Kremlin on Moscow seemed to be waiting that these protests were seeing in Cabbarov Squirrel, just gradually die away. But what if they doesn't what kind of a warning example this? Of Four four Moscow and UNFOR, Vladimir? Putin. We we have reached elections coming up rather soon. How can make sure that something like that doesn't happen in those cities in those regions as well? Well, here's the problem he can't because it's really about is going to catch nation of random factory in football was not particularly personally popular. It was more the just his arrest, which under other circumstances might well have. Have passed pretty much unnoticed. Just somehow catalyzed. They just general sense of being fed up. There was a coastal city. Now. Elsewhere, we have certain places I. Mean, for example, in in Novosibirsk in Siberia, there's sort of contested elections coming up where we actually have real opposition politics emerging. The government is going to hope that it considered squelch Shalit's, but didn't that it has to have these parliamentary elections however. Much the parliament itself is just a rubber stamp. Nonetheless, it has to have these elections and elections. Inevitably case it paces when situations are that, there will be discussions disagreements, it will generate or kind of precious. Again, what we're seeing something that means it's highly difficult to predict. That's irritating for an analyst like myself. You difficult to predict exactly what and where it's going to happen, but there is a prevailing sense in Moscow that. The country is entering some bumpy. Times? Would it be easier for peace in to lead his country. If it was simply smaller, it is understandable that Russians thousands of miles away from Moscow? Mayfield. They don't wants to be controlled by the capital, isn't it? Exactly. Eleven time zones away or whatever I mean the actually that sense that Moscow doesn't really care is really quite pervasive, but to be perfectly honest look I've traveled outside Moscow itself. Even within the Moscow region, you find these pockets of ticky rural poverty, where actually all the shiny new infrastructure, the bright lights, the hipster bars and things of Moscow seem alone wrong where way. So size does matter, but I think it's really not the key issue. It's about the extent to which this is a regime which is focused on Moscow and Petersburg, a handful of other major cities and really has developed them at the expense of the rest of the country. And just finally, Mark Looking at these protests and fierce Moscow and beauty may have. How can President Putin bring the nation together? Again is widely assumed that looking for enemies from the West has been one way for into boost his own popularity domestically. Do you expect that we may see some kind of new maneuvers from the president in the future if things get worse domestically. Well, there's this overwhelming assumption in the West that, yes, that he tries to distract attention this way we have to realize that with the exception of the two, thousand, fourteen annexation of Crimea. which was very, very unusual case. None of the various overseas adventures that Putin has engaged in Syria and so forth have been either driven by domestic considerations or frankly popular i. mean half the time. Actually the Russian regime lies to its own people to claim that it's at interventions abroad are much less than they really are. So I think what we're going to say is not some kind of adventure abroad, but we will. Will see a rising tone to this propaganda about the world is a hostile place and the Russia is beleaguered fortress. He doesn't make Putin popula. What it does do is it legitimises his Moose clamped down on the opposition because he can say, this is not a time to be divided because Russia's very future is at threat
Trump Wants to Ban TikTok, NASA-SpaceX Mission Success, & Unemployment Benefits Expire - Monday, August 3rd
"It's Monday August third president trump wants to ban TIKTOK. Info on the NASA spacex mission success plus unemployment benefits have expired why trump's team is interested in Biden's VP pick and more. Welcome to Rob Song, podcast where I bring you the latest Progressive News and politics and ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. So president trump announced on Friday night that he wants to ban Tiktok Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that trump would be making an announcement on these matters in the coming days he said this on Fox News Sunday morning futures where he also said that Tiktok, the Chinese owned short form video APP needs to be taken down via executive action in addition to Tiktok. Mike. POMPEO. Pointed to we chat, which is a Chinese messaging APP saying that both of these are feeding data directly to the. Chinese Communist Party quote for a long time a long time. The United States just said well goodness if we're having fun with it or if a company can make money off of it, we're going to permit that to happen president trump said enough going on the secretary of state added and we are going to fix it and so he will take action in the coming days with respect to a broad array of national security risks that are presented by software that connected to the Chinese Communist Party. Microsoft has emerged as wanting to potentially by all US operations of tiktok accents reports that trump does have a deal on his desk where Microsoft would lead acquisition of the US operations of six talk and Microsoft seems to believe that it's possible that a total separation can happen from tiktok parent company by Dance. It's important for you to understand that presidents normally can't just order a ban on individual companies like this but the fact that Tiktok has a foreign owner allows the Treasury Department to have broad. Authority over it. Now, at this point, it's unclear whether trump is going to allow Microsoft to buy it or if trump is just going to push for an all out ban, we don't know. But what we do know is that this is super weird coming just months before an election six does have one hundred, million US users, and so it is rather strange move it could alienate some I mean granted I don't know if it would make much of a difference, but it just seemed strange. NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Bankin are safely on earth after a historic flight to and from the International Space Station provided by SPACEX Axios says on Saturday afternoon both astronaut splashdown into the Gulf of Mexico after about two forty, eight PM eastern time a space x vessel was able to recover both astronauts from their crew, dragon? Capsule. Hurley in bank in two month mission was the first time that people have been launched into orbit from the United States. The end of the space shuttle. Program in twenty eleven. This new move of partnering for Space Exploration, with private companies can allow NASA to act more of like a buyer instead of a provider of these services now and will free up NASA's budget to focus on things like getting people to the moon and eventually other planets in the future. In fact, NASA and SPACEX already have another trip planned this time for six months with multiple. NASA. Going up to the International Space Station, this will take place around late. September. So be on the lookout. Additional unemployment benefits of six hundred dollars per week expired on Friday July thirty first and reportedly the White House Senate. Republicans and Democrats are all know we're closer to a deal? Apparently, all sides are on board though for another twelve, hundred dollar check like was done with the cares act earlier this year the main point of disagreement is the additional unemployment benefits six hundred dollars extra. A month is what people have been receiving since the cares act was passed Democrats want to continue at that rate while Republicans want to. Bring that down to two hundred additional dollars per week while eventually moving holy to seventy percent of lost wages Republicans additionally wanted to get a one week extension on the six hundred dollars per week of additional benefits passed quickly. But the Democrats are refusing because they think that the Republicans are just GonNa. Use It as just a quick win and move on. But the Democrats are saying that they want a full robust bill. Now, the Democrats have proposed a three trillion dollar deal while the Republicans are looking to pass. A one trillion dollar deal, and as of yesterday junk Schumer the Senate Minority leader said that there were significant divisions remaining but good progress is being made quote. We made good progress. There are lots of things we are still divided on and we're not close to an agreement yet, but we are making good progress and I'm hopeful that we can get to an agreement. Now they're going to resume talks today. Okay. But do not be fooled. The Republicans are trying to place the onus here on Democrats but Democrats came. Up with a bill back in May the bill back in May like I said had a three trillion dollar price tag. It was approved by the House but then has not been voted on in the Senate and Senate Republicans want to have a one trillion dollar bill that does not do nearly enough in my opinion. So but as of right now you know who's GonNa Suffer America, the American people that are unemployed we just had on Thursday. One of the worse GDP records for quarter ever if not the worst. The percentage of GDP lost was close to thirty three percent. I hope we get a deal soon things are super hard to pass in Washington obviously, and I'm glad that the Democrats are sticking their feet in and trying to get this thing passed the Democrats are not perfect and I fear that they're going to cave too much here. But we've got to get something done because there is an eviction crisis looming we need to renew the moratorium on fictions. Now CNBC just posted a study recently that twenty two to fifty nine percent depending on the state that you live in of renters may be facing eviction as a result of the corona virus economic circumstances these numbers are horrifying and I'm sure this isn't the last time you'll be hearing about it. Trump's campaign paused ads over the weekend, which is really weird because they wanted to rebrand their messaging and new ads launching today are going to be depicting Joe Biden as a puppet of the radical left. This comes from two senior campaign officials but the most recent internal polls show that the puppet of the left's attack on Biden is going to resonate with voters and speaking personally in someone who lives in a very heavy trump territory. The this is the talking point that I've heard Oh Biden's not the problem it's. Going to be the VP you have to look out for as if Kamla Harrison. Some sort of crazy radical assuming he chooses someone like her speaking of the VP spot trump's campaign is very interested in that because the quote unquote radical left thing that they're going to be using their ads is a placeholder for whoever Joe Biden ends up picking. By the way, we will learn who Joe Biden is going to pick around on tenth multiple sources have suggested he said now he pushed back his self imposed deadline from. The first week of August to the second week and one source has said that it's going to be August tenth now. So be on the lookout here. No matter who Joe Biden picks. I think that Joe Biden is well-positioned. Of course, we all have to go out and vote that. This is not a matter of that we have to vote even if we live in California or Massachusetts or Oklahoma Even for God's sake, we have to vote for Joe Biden, but it doesn't really matter as much who he picks. Think this go around because trump's campaign is reportedly very upset that Biden doesn't have the unfavorability rating that Hillary Clinton did in two, thousand, sixteen, all of this trump at drama gotta be Biden's campaign to respond Andrew Bates. Director of rapid response said quote the American people know Joe Biden and after seven consecutive months of failed leadership during the worst possible health crisis in generations they know that our nation's capacity to join the rest of the world beating back cove nineteen has been crippled by one overriding burden donald trump. Representative James Clyburn of South Carolina said on Sunday that he believes trump is trying to put a cloud over the election and that he does not plan to leave office. If he loses Clyburn told CNN that the American people had better wake up to trump and he compared trump to Mussalini and said Russian President Vladimir Putin is akin to Hitler further representative Clyburn said quote I don't think he plans to leave the White House. He doesn't plan to have fair unfettered elections I believe that he plans to install. Himself in some kind of emergency way to continue to hold office. Now, all of this is to say everything that Clyburn is saying here means that we have to so overwhelmed the vote that trump cannot cheat. We have to force him out of office because on January twentieth at noon no matter how hard trump tries he will not be the president if we overwhelmed the vote and like Joe. Biden. So that's what we have to do. If you need help getting registered in your state, go to vote Dot

"Legal last last term as president and in this context he is his putting in motion very very slow moving mechanism that That is designed to ensure that he will not even have to face the possibility of challenge right right and I'm talking about it in Chicago loop way because I think that normal language that we use to describe political processes is always based on assumptions. Is that don't apply to Russia right. Like people have tried to say. Maybe you know it's a cool well. It's a cool if if you can perpetrate a coup against yourself. Putin is the only person with power in Russia and he's staging a coup against You know it breaks down. It's constitutional reform reform even that is misleading because it suggests the Constitution has wait that. There's maybe judiciary that can make independent decisions or anything right so also people say consolidation of power which is like the most difficult one to sort of say no. That's wrong I mean you can't consolidate holiday power and you further it would be a miracle physics. It's already consolidated fully right. So what is what is happening. He he is he's parent. He sees the possibility of a challenge to his power. Where none exists this? This is not without precedent in the history of dictators and in fact. That's what makes dictators most stable dictators fall when they become overconfident when they think that they're truly so beloved by the population that they will for example call an election like Milosevic did and Bingo he falls. Putin is not like that. Putin has paranoid like for example stolen right so he kept sending people to jail or to death for what was in his imagination. The possibility of a challenge to his legitimacy when in fact there was not and Sullen stay in power Until he died in Russia ruled the Soviet Union for thirty years put that style of parent. What his protecting himself against doesn't actually exist and let me just explain? The process is so he has. He gave us very strange very muddy speech attention you know. Most of his speeches are very muddy because they can be interpreted in any way possible. That's part of the way that sort of reality makes is made mushy under Putin But he has created. Ah Commission seventy-five percent commission to propose reforms to the constitution which will then be brought to a popular vote but as a package hatch right. So it's going to be kind of a you know. Yes we're for Putin and his reforms or nowhere against Bush in his report so we know what the outcome of that vote is going to be. People are not actually is going to be able to vote on substantively but the seventy five percent commission consists in part of legislators and jurors which just what you would expect but it also includes theater directors film directors the heads of the two most important museums. Russia The heads of two medical clinics the heads of some charities so what these people have in common is that they're very well known and much loved and their work depends entirely on Putin's goodwill and presidential funding and so it falls to these people to say please we want want to change the constitution to allow you to stay in office for life and also to forever possible Masha.

"Democracy are gone now the Defense Secretary Jim Mattis the former White House chief of staff John Kelly and so so in the absence of those voices the ability of people like Putin or bond to influence trump have been heightened we have fewer people around him who were who are countervailing voices arguing against what the leaders of places like Russia are telling him and it's worth pointing out that this has been the case when it comes to other stuff tier rate that especially when it comes to Vladimir Putin that there have been other issues where president trump has basically I listened to Putin or heard from Putin on something and then acted in accordance with what Putin wanted well let's start with twenty sixteen right I mean so trump to this day review uses to acknowledge that Russia interfered in the election he won and he has repeatedly cited with Putin who has denied that Russia did this US intelligence has uh evidence on the table on top of evidence and trump dismisses it and sides with Putin there have been other cases to like Russia's attempted assassination of factors in the UK you're more go which you know all of Western Europe decided was a basically a Russian assassination attempt at didn't succeed trump was very skeptical of that again kind of sided with Putin's point of view you need to prove that he did this you need to prove Russia did this in a way that was astonishing to a lot of also sellers so has this impeachment inquiry continues is your sense that we're going to hear more about specifically how Putin n- or bond and other foreign leaders might have influenced the president when it comes to you what he did on these potentially impeachable offenses. Yeah I think we're GONNA learn continue to learn a lot about the environment around trump how this happens I think we're GONNA learn a lot more this week we have important new witnesses were appearing before the committee including today Bill Taylor who is the acting ambassador in Ukraine and he is super important because he is there in in Kiev and he is correspond wanding with other diplomats and it's his expressions of deep concern that we read about in the text exchanges with the EU ambassador. Gordon Sunland and a special envoy to Ukraine Kurt Volker so we've already seen glimpses of Bill Taylor's real concern about what what they were doing and whether trump was trying to make aid Ukraine contingent on cooperating and political affairs and then we have other State Department officials including Phil Reeker who Zeno closely involved in the removal of the ambassador there and of this this whole process it's important to remember the other thing we've learned through the impeachment inquiry so far is there were a lot of people working directly with and for Donald Trump who saw troubling developments on Ukraine way back in the spring there were people in the White House who were freaked out about this for a long time and we are we are still learning more about the extent of their concern and dismay Greg Miller is a national security correspondent for the post on Tuesday Acting Ambassador to Ukraine William Taylor testified in that closed door here hang on Capitol Hill Taylor said that he was told the release of military aid to Ukraine had a stipulation it was contingent on Ukrainian officials publicly declaring that they would investigate the Biden's and the two thousand sixteen election that testimony directly contradicts the president who has insisted that there was no quid pro.

"Kris. Hello Hello Jamie. It's such a pleasure to have you on the podcast. I've been wanting to spend some time with the story for weeks now particularly after the municipal elections but I keep getting distracted by the Canadian election election so I'm so glad that we have here today to dig into it well. Let's just put it this week. Canadian elections are a lot more competitive other lot freer and there are a lot more unpredictable predictable in terms of WHO's going to win here in Russia a little bit more open. I'm so so let's let's talk about these elections. That just happened in Russia these local elections and Vladimir on Mir Putin's party. They didn't do so well right. They didn't do so well. You know depending on which way you look at it. It's a glass half full half empty kind of analogy. What's significant about it is that the level of opposition going into these elections was higher than perhaps what the Kremlin expected and I think the outcome was worse than what they expected. pro-kremlin politicians have lost eight third of the seats in Russia's capital disappointing school for the ruling party and its allies who previously occupied thirty eight out the forty-five feet. Let's be clear these are not particularly powerful jobs that that people were running for but what really seemed to galvanized things and what motivated people and motivated the protesters was that they weren't fair obvious. It was rigged from the start. Yes mean fuck. Doc Me is furious together with thousands of others she signed her name in support of a social liberal candidate in Moscow's upcoming local elections but then the electoral commission decreed that the candidate was not allowed to stand DVD's. We weren't given an explanation. They just said that's not your signature that was it and and that gave opponents sort of a common cause to rally around it got people out in the streets and and it posed a whole bunch of problems in terms of how you deal with this kind of There's a word for it here. It's called non systemic opposition and I. It sounds sounds a bit heavy but it's significant because you have two kinds of opposition in Russia. You have the kind that sits in the Duma. That's effectively allowed by Crumlin. They have parameters that they can behave within. They can propose legislation. They can do some things but what they cannot do. They can't go right after the president. They can't criticize Putin Tin and they have to color within the line and then you have the folks out in the street. They're the non systemic opposition and they're the ones that that the government is quite worried about opposition fig. Alex Vanni encouraged tactical voting in the Moscow vote telling his supporters to pick anyone but Putin backed politician in general we can say that the tactical vote worked and it's worked much better than we had expected and you mentioned before that it became clear that these elections were rigged on this might seem like an obvious question but how so well just in terms of who could run I mean they set the bar very high. If you want to challenge for a seat there's is forty some odd seats in Moscow City Hall for example you had to go out and get thousands of signatures in order to mount a challenge if you weren't with one of the authorized parties days and you bring in your signatures and they get scrutinized and the chief electoral person says Sewri all of these signatures or at least hundreds news one thousand of them. We don't believe them think they're fake stalked by. Swin they say to the opposition was not allowed into the polls. This is not true about half of this group is allowed and will participate in the elections. We've asked for the rest. We carefully examined the documents. We wanted to register them but unfortunately there were a number of violations the law that did not allow us to do this is this is what happened not just in one or two or three or four cases but in dozens of cases and really only to so-called independent candidates notably people that were associated with Alexina Valmy who is an anti corruption crusader here. He's the best known foe of Ladimir Putin and the Kremlin hates him hates them so much. You can't even hear his name on state television. I want to talk about state television with you in a moment but this idea that the bar was so high hi to be able to run in the first place the fact that the outcome was worse than what the Kremlin wanted. Does that say something to you about what's happening there. I think it has been discernible for the last eighteen months at least that something has been brewing in Russian society. There's a tension in there and it's a tension between the people and the government and it's manifested itself in a number of ways after the World Cup came that was a great eight high moment for Russians. A few snapped invitations haven't stopped Putin from scoring points off the soccer pitches. Well countries like Italy and Austria have cozied up to it for now at least focuses on football not the international violations which formed much of this country's recent history and it Kinda camouflaged some of the angst that was going on on over a cut in pension as soon as the World Cup ended you just saw Putin's popularity ratings dropped Russia's widely unpopular pension reform bill would raise the retirement age for men from sixty to sixty five and from fifty five to sixty for women business people pensioners almost list of Russian society ten out for this protest and so this was seen as as a rebuke to the ruling class and that has been you know the Political Michael Tremor that has been rippling through this country and I think it very much worry the Kremlin they they look at St Revolutions Arab spring now what happened in my Don in Ukraine in two thousand fourteen triggered the break up of Ukraine days do not art like large crowds totake protests and they do everything they can to to stop them out and can you tell me what they've been doing to stop them because there there have been tens of thousands of people in the street throughout the summer well. I mean in some cases. Some people got horrific terrible jail sentences one guy who went up and you know confronted a cop and then as he was leaving he turned around and saw a tweet the guys visor he got thrown in jail for for three years wow yeah and then in another another case someone else who had gone to these a number of these protests got thrown in jail for four warriors again for breaking a law that says you can't go to multiple unauthorized protests because then you'd be so we saw people carted off by their arms and legs by the hundreds. Most of them were released in what what what they've decided to do since then is to make an example of just a few and I understand there have been further crackdowns even after these elections on the weekend yeah we we've just seen in the last forty eight hours. You know one of the largest police operations for years in Russia's when my daughter called me and said the police came to search the apartment. Actually they cheated their way into the apartment because she opened the door for a neighbor a thousand police officers according to opposition figures going to thirty six different cities either you know searching people's homes or going into their offices seizing laptops seizing notebook notebook seizing phones. Everyone connected to Alexina Valmy. What she seems little says the only this time he got really upset because of the technical voting eighteen as his offspring he's sweet child. I would say the United Russia party has been busted in Moscow and seriously beaten in the regions so this this has been sort of the post election crackdown that the security services have done. Do you think that Putin hold on power is actually being threatened here. If if you look at the response of the security services to the protests over the summer you look at the follow up response now that tells else me that there is concern okay but how deeply worried you know that's that's a very very tricky thing thing we know in the past that in terms of people who are rivals to Vladimir Putin there are very few in Russia. They've either all been driven coach of Russia or in some cases most notably Boris Nemtsov assassinated shot in the back four times just before midnight Moscow time tonight. President Putin condemned the killing but many will believe this was the work of assassins close to the government. I WanNa talk with you a little bit today about how it is is possible. The Vladimir Putin has managed to stay in power in one form or another for two decades. You know my my understanding is that when he took power in late nineteen nineteen ninety s he wasn't expected to stay on as president of Russia. He was kind of like a stopgap measure well. He certainly was unexpected. I mean he he had no He didn't really have much of a national profile. He had briefly headed the secret. Police had jobs in a senior jobs in Saint Petersburg but really the it kind of came out of the Blue Vladimir Putin the career spy talks about establishing what he calls a dictatorship of the law fight corrupt bureaucrats crats and strengthen the central government. I think you know when we talk about Vladimir Putin. He's he's such an interesting figure because there's diametrically opposed ways of seeing him. I'm in the West and in Russia here. There's a great many Russians who have a ton of respect for all that he's done and they see someone who came into an extremely difficult job in an extremely difficult situation and fixed a country that was essentially broken. Its economy wasn't working. Its institutions. Institutions weren't functioning the greatness that had sustained in the psyche of a lot of Russians throughout the Cold War that was gone and Putin came in and he he kind of fixed it and and that kind of continued to a point and then it stopped and I think this is this is sort of where we pick up the story now now and a lot of Russia's economy is built on on oil prices and in natural gas and when those prices kind of collapse Russia's economy really suffers and then you have the sanctions that the western nations put on as well and and so you sort of had a perfect storm that kind of began developing read around you know twenty fourteen two thousand fifteen and that's kind of what's led to a lot of his problems now but he has a great residual sense of almost almost goodwill from the modifications even people that don't really like respective.
