You Can't Love People and Vote for Democrats
"I started off by telling you that you can't love people and vote for the Democrat party. That isn't to say that every Democrat out there is evil. That isn't to say that every Democrat is bad or a bad person, that's not what I'm saying, but I'm talking about the structure of the politicians of the Democrat party and how they exist today. This is an evil party. I'm sorry. I'm not going to hold back. I don't believe this is hyperbole. The stuff that this left wing party, this Marxist party is doing is unheard of is unprecedented and we'll get into some of those things, but I argue you can not love people and vote for the Democrat party today. Oh, Carl, what are you talking about? You don't believe me? Let's just look at the black abortion rate. Do you understand that the black, the black population, is approximately 13%? Yet we kill approximately 36% of our babies. I mean, well, we kill 50% of our babies approximately. I'm sorry. Only 13% of the population, yet we account for. So let me reframe that. We account for 36% of the abortions in the city of New York, New York City. More black women listen to me. More black women have abortions than they do give birth to their children.
Douglas Murray: There's No Reason Immigration Should Only Be a Right-Wing Issue
"What of the Democrats got to say now about migration? There's no reason why a left wing party can't get on top of migration. It's happened in Europe, certain left wing governments have been able to get in migration under control in Europe. There's no reason why it has to be a right wing issue. There's no reason why it shouldn't be a left win issue, in fact, a Democrat party issue that American laborers are losing their jobs or being undercut by foreign competition. There's no reason actually a right wing issue. It could be a left wing issue. And yet because the left and the centrists were not willing to make this acknowledgement, this turn. They just wasted their time and everybody else's. For years, and there's still no demonstration that they've learned from it. I think it's a great sadness for America as a whole.
Israel's New Unity Government Is a Sham
"Netanyahu and Israel and how this guy But he fought and fought and fought. And he really let him have it. The media in Israel is is really disgusting. Actually more disgusting than Army because there's really only a handful of conservative outlets altogether is no Fox News. In Hebrew in Israel. So they have nothing to that extent. But you have true Stalinist type hacks. Have been trying to take after this prime minister and obviously the people of Israel of like this prime minister. His party and he still got more votes than anybody else. She have a guy by the name of Naftali Bennett. Just listen quickly. He runs to the right of Netanyahu says he's not conservative enough. He runs in his own party. You need 120. Actually, they have 120 ministers. Excuse me, 100 and 20 members of the Knesset, their parliament. His party got six. Six. Lot less than 5%. He's now the sitting prime minister of Israel. He swings to the left, He embraces the left wing parties. He embraces the Arab Party, which is really a jihadi party movement. Because he wants to be prime minister is 48. He won't wait. It's absolutely unbelievable, actually. And so by one vote. Effectively. One member they take over the government. This guy lied to the people of Israeli lie to the people who voted in his party. Hundreds of thousands, Not many, but still To get what he wanted to get. And the media. Think this is a unity effort. It's a unity effort. Unity around what Have these disparate groups. Anti Zionist pro Zionist, most of them anti Anti American. In some cases hard left, they call them center left there. Nothing center left over there. They're hard left wing kooks. And this guy Naftali Bennett throws in with them because they say we'll make you the prime minister first, then the Styler full lap that he can be eaten getting behind.

"He spent a lot of time in the united states. And it's very very close links and close ties to the republican party. Institutionally and is approached the us a lot like a republican partisan He i mean he's built the us-israel relationship around cemented highs with one of the two major parties and scorning the other one treatment as a security threat to israel I think that is going to change. I mean lupita has been very clear that he wants it to change and bennett. I don't think we'll have the running room to try to Create this kind of partisan or strengthen the increasing partisans if the us israel defied in a way that netanyahu could when he led a stable or relatively stable coalition. What do you guys think but to me. You know in the past two administrations in the us. Essentially the other than settlements and the position on settlements. I think obviously the iran deal has been the major wedge between the us and israel because specifically between the obama administration and netanyahu who vehemently opposed the iran. Nuclear deal thought. It didn't do enough to stop iran from getting the bomb if it wanted and gave iran way too much In terms of money specifically economic benefits that netanyahu and people who agree with his position thought that iran you then use to funnel to do more terror attacks and fund more terrorist groups etcetera That is one area. I think we could see a bit of a detente between the us. Israel relationship specifically right the by administration right now is working very hard along with european allies. Try to figure out a way for the us and iran to get back into compliance with the nuclear deal. Netanyahu was the biggest thorn in that s- on the israeli side. There other compliance issues and negotiation issues to in the us and iran but talking about the us-israel relationship right. That is going to be gone. If netanyahu's gone right low-paid and several other people In the coalition or all basically on record having criticized netanyahu for opposing the us getting back into iran nuclear deal. It's not totally clear. Where bennett is going to end up. Coming down this if he ends up being prime minister even if he ends up being on like the netanyahu side right like as we already talked about. He's going to be part of this coalition and so he will have to hopefully in some ways bent his position. So i think we may not see as much of the hard core like i mean. Remember netanyahu literally went on the floor of the us congress to denounce the nuclear deal and try to convince us lawmakers to push hard against it. I don't think we're going to see that kind of strong opposition from this coalition iran. Nuclear deal and i think that's one good news if you support the us and iran getting back in to the deal but it's also going back to the earlier point is good news for the us israel relationship. If you remove that huge thorn in the relationship then you can kind of get back to the more general. Now whether you think that's a good idea for the us and israel have great relationship et cetera. That's a separate question. So i think the iran nuclear deal in particular. It's going to be interesting space to watch one other thing going back to the israeli domestic political scene. Just one other thought. I had a vacuum talked about the kind of ethno. Ethnic identity schisms within israel. I think in some ways. I don't wanna be too pollyannaish here. But i think in some ways the fact that neftali bennett's you know jewish nationalist right-wing party is in coalition with an islamist party is something that is potentially beneficial for the ethnic divisions that we've seen the the jewish arab tensions on that flared up over the last month or so remember during the latest flare up between israel and gaza. Neftali bennett essentially said that. He wouldn't work with the islamists because of what was going on that he just couldn't sell that essentially to his base. And i remember talking izaak the time we were saying this is the time when they should most if any time that they should work together. It should now help like try to in some way. Heal these divisions and show that they can work together they can say we are all part of the same country etcetera etcetera. So i think you know even a really basic sense again like they still have ideological divisions. They're not going to be best friends. But i think that alone could go at least a little bit of a way to. Maybe he'll some of the like the most on on the surface the most vicious tensions that are happening right now because there is this coalition. And they're saying we will work together. If you can see the party leaders doing that then you can potentially see people on the streets going. Okay well you know maybe maybe we should settle down for a little while and not you know completely go to war with one another. I don't know maybe. That's maybe i'm too optimistic See what you think. I would like to think that you're right. I really like that. It's just so what. But i also don't know how much i actually think this will work. It's difficult right like you can one scenario. That's really easy to imagine for me. Is that this government splits over some foreign policy crisis or some flare up in tensions with the palestinians or something related to jerusalem or something like really really divisive internally inside the coalition netanyahu's in at this point the zyppah theatrical again and so the likud which is still the most popular party in israel is led by a more palatable member of the center. Right that other people like bennett and lieberman who are on the broader reich. And get along with if you have similar election results of the one you have right now. In terms of the distribution of seats that has which brought ideological tendency gets what percentage of seats it would be really easy trivial easy to form in extremely right wing government including a jewish supremacist faction that Netanyahu worked hard to bring into his coalition. And that kind of hard right governments. Which would you know that sort of the natural majority right now in these early parliament prevented only by netanyahu's personal unpopularity in the thornberry tendencies. That is the only reason why this change. Alliance exists in the first place as opposed to a right wing government with these results. And then you can. You can imagine that government. Going right back to demonizing arabs inside israel to passing laws. Kurt their status an equal standing inside israel. Which we've seen all throughout netanyahu's term. It's possible that this is just a way of getting netanyahu out the door and then israel's rightward march goes right back onto continuing forward after he leaves. That's one of the sort of less optimistic scenarios that could come from this. I just don't know if that's what's going to happen or not. I'll switch gears for a second because as as my want usually. I'm thinking a lot about the the us and sort of the the vitamins rations app and we talked about this a little bit. But i will admit to sort of thinking out loud on this. Because i'm still very all over the place on where i fall. So if i'm biden i don't know how i take this news of this new coalition government on the one hand. Bb's gone the and as i agree with everything you've said so far like this is actually be you know. They'll probably be quieter. On iran and other issues in like you can probably keep the relationship going without it being a big hindrance to us foreign policy objectives and so on that and that could probably be good the the downside is going to be to a certain extent right like i do know that don't agree on much but they have a long term working relationship they are friends. Like netanyahu is welcomed by it until like the family of israel if anything last israel-gaza flare up for better worse..

Final vote results show major setback for Israel's Netanyahu
"Election results show Israel is once again in a political deadlock. The election Commission in the country says that with 100% of votes counted, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his opponents have fallen short of a governing majority. Netanyahu's right wing Likud Party and his allies 1 52 seats in Israel's 120 seat parliament. Diverse group of parties committed to throwing him out. 1 57 seats, a right wing party won seven seats and an Arab Islamist party won four. Both are uncommitted. No one is able to assemble a 61 seat majority. In weeks of negotiations, Israel would go to elections for 1/5 time in roughly two years. In
Israel's Fourth Election in Two Years: Is There A Clear Winner?
"So there is no clear winner yet. Netanyahu is expected to win the most seats in parliament, but he'll still need to build a coalition with other parties to get a majority. In your fourth election Now in two years. The last one was just a year ago. How unusual is this? I mean, what is this cycle of elections? Yeah, Israel isn't really in deadlock, and it all comes down to Netanyahu. He has been on trial for corruption and not enough parties have been willing to join a government with him. On the other hand, the opposition has just been too weak and too divided to come together and unseat him, and that's why we've seen this deadlock. Last year, Netanyahu had to share power with his centrist opponent, and that opponent was supposed to take over actually as prime minister later this year. Instead, Netanyahu forced these new elections so he would get another chance to stay. Prime minister. And what could help him this time? Are the vaccines. Many Israelis, no matter what their political affiliation is. Give him credit for securing covert 19 vaccines Early and Israel leads the world today and vaccinations per capita Looking ahead. What direction could this election take this government in terms of policy? Well, the government no matter what happens is going to be fairly right Wing or very right Wing on DIT depends. I mean, the left wing is very small in Israel, so we're looking at a few options if Netanyahu wins a majority. He would partner with ultra nationalists with the hard right with Jewish religious parties. They would strengthen Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. President Biden does not support settlements like Trump did. Now, if the opposition somehow manages to form its own government, it would also be heavily dependent on right wing parties. This vote will all come down to how the small parties come out. It's a very, very tight election, Audie That's NPR's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem. Thanks for your reporting.

"Hi. Did you hear my question? Yes, I did hear your question. So it's looking extremely likely. Now that it is going to be Mr Biden. If it were to be Mr Trump. I don't think that it would not be positive for the climate agenda, but it certainly wouldn't wouldn't be the end of the road. They're huge trends in the global economy, which means that the shift towards low carbon is pretty well irreversible. Now with renewable energy cheaper than coal in this parts of the world, for example. And secondly, when when Mr Trump did withdraw, nobody followed us out of of the agreement. So the stated intent of Mr Trump to leave was was made about three years ago and no one no one has followed him so But nonetheless, having having the U. S re engaged, I think would be a very powerful Phillip to the international process. Having having the world's biggest economy back in the game with with with a serious talk it and us will need a serious target, and we can talk a bit about How it might put such a target together, particularly if if the Democrats end up not controlling the Senate, and secondly, in the U. S just brings huge diplomatic Wait. You know, the U. S couldn't couldn't work with allies to persuade them to raise their Ah, Their ambition is the Obamas did Ah, back back in. In that administration. What with China. What with some of the international institutions Tio, reform them and make them more more supportive of climb agenda. On DH. How would How would a Biden presidency go about trying to achieve the goals it might need to achieve under the agreement, So the first thing is, it would need to rejoin Paris, which is a very simple process. It could be done by executive order and it and the U. N process takes takes 30 days so that could be done very, very quickly. The U. S will also need on ambitious emission reduction commitment. The world will expect something you know significant from the U. S. And that that will in an ideal world. The U. S would have congressional legislation to put that into place that looks like it's going to be harder. Because of this. I think there's a couple of run offs in Georgia, which could change the picture, but it looks likely that the Democrats won't want control the Senate so you know, I guess. One question is whether the the the the U. S. Could start learning howto work across the aisle again and work up policy and legislative options, which can command support from major parties. So Biden's talk about having a major green stimulus program. You know many Republicans like manure, but energy they like electric vehicles like energy efficiency, so You know it's possible that some some element of that quote could pass. But secondly, us president has these artists proposal so massive executive authority that Khun mean the US come take action on its emissions. Without AH, going to Congress. So, for example, the bombers the Obama administration set overall image for emissions from coal fired power stations, methane emissions from the oil and gas industry vehicle standard, so a lot can be done with executive authority, although clearly legislation provides for a more comprehensive approaches. Let's bring our guests in here, Brian class. Do you have a question for Pete? Yeah, I'm wondering, you know, when you when you look at the changes in the U s a cz results of the election. How much faith do you put in states? Because a lot of the lot of the biggest economies in America are controlled by Democrats. Is there. Is there significant scope for sub national climate change progress that regardless of who's in the White House or in the Senate? Yeah, it's it's completely good question. We've seen huge progress by individual states and, indeed cities on actually businesses as well over the last Three or four years, so in action in the U. S, has continued, even though a lot of the the the measures put in place by Obama has been repealed by Mr Trump. And I think that could continue. And you know, one could, for example, envisage Ah stimulus bill, which provided additional support to states. To enable them to drive and accelerate the action of many of them taken already. And Rob, Tell me J. I'm curious, because I think quite often, When I think about these big international agreements, I think of them as being very performance it so I'm wondering how the U. S. Has the second highest emitter of Theo to emissions is going to reconcile its role at the international level through the Paris climate Agreement with more ambition ist more ambitious. Proposals by the left wing Party of part of the Democratic Party. The Green New deal. So how how is that reconciliation going to take place? You think going forward with the potential Biden presidency? Well, you know, So in the first Obama president, he frankly didn't give huge priority to climate, Mr Obama prioritized healthcare, which it was interred intimate choice. He only really drive climate hard in the second term. I hope that on I believe that Mr Biden will prioritize crime in his first term. I think it's a much more core part off the coalition that he's that he's put together. Come on, Harris on DSO onto so so I do think it will be prioritized. I think there will need to be conversations about you know how to put put together radical packages, which will command cross party support, particularly if they If they all major spending programs, which need to pass the Senate. But I wonder if we've moved past the point where the U. S would be expected to provide global leadership on climate change..

Tell me What happens this election? I'm extremely concerned. I'm concerned, Glen. Not just about who wins. It's whether we will actually have a clear winner because let's set this up for a minute. Where we're headed Republican Party is pushing an encouraging people go to the polls like you always do. Go stand in line. Do what you need to do. Democrats are pushing mail in ballots. Don't go and line up, but, you know, let's do a mail in ballot. What that means is you could have a situation where Trump is ahead on Election night. But nobody wants to call it because you've got all these mysterious battle ballots out there that haven't been counted. We could go days or weeks without a clear winner and it could really drag on in a way that becomes very, very destructive and we become more and more divided as a country. And that is intentional. I believe I mean, when Hillary Clinton came out and said it on Friday and then Beto setted this weekend, don't give up and Trump is going to hell. Just take that office and he won't care what the law says He won't care with the ballots say which is so untrue, Andi said. There's we're never going to give in. Yeah, And and they and they rewrite the I mean, I went back and looked remember Stacey Abrams in Georgia. Yes, I went there and they said, you know, she won that election It was stolen from or her. I went back and looked. You know how many votes she lost by 50,000 votes 50,000. So how do you say and my point is, is they rewrite history in a way you would be one thing if you lost by 500 votes, But 50 thousands close close.

"wing party" Discussed on KSFO-AM
"It's a living death as far as I'm concerned. I have a report of a friend who works for a major bank in New York state. Who was forced to sit in on company conference calls discussing what white people going to apologize. And make up for their privilege. Are you listening to this? Apologize for the white privilege. I have a real question for you out there. Okay? And I'd like an answer from those of you who think it's cool to rip down statues? When will the Vandals in barbarians be stopped? Who will stop the Vandals and barbarians. Trump talks tough The other day. I cheered when he said it should be a 10 year sentence for tearing down statues. He was right. Tom Cotton, a certifiable Iraq war veteran. One of the best man in our Senate said the same thing. But where is the action from the corrupt Mitch McConnell McConnell exists as far as I'm concerned on ly to feather his own nest. They are the classic rhino operatives. They do nothing for the nation. Nothing for the people. It's certainly nothing for the future of our nation. So it's falling upon us. We, the people. To defend our nation. But how? What should we do? These are the questions Maybe you have the answers. How is it that a nation that has a DEA that could take down Pablo Escobar. How is it that a nation that has special forces in the U. S Army? That could defeat Isis. How is it that we have a nation of hard core military cannot take down a group of Vandals and barbarians. Ask yourself that question and you'll have all the answers. I watched these movies about Iraq. And I see these men going in and breaking down steel doors, waiting into machine gun fire and hand grenades and stopping them and they can't stop a group of barbarians and Vandals who are burning cities and looting. So it doesn't add up unless this is on purpose. It's all happening on purpose. It's not happening by chance, because this could be stopped. Could have been stopped. You've got little girls who hate people. Mainly white men. Putting on the Internet. Ideas and plans on how to how to vandalize statues. That's called crossing State lines. To come in a riot. It's a federal offense, Mr Trump. You don't need to write new law arrest her. Arrest those who are teaching others how to pull down statues. They've crossed state lines on the Internet. Did you hear what I just said? They've committed a federal crime. You don't need to write new law and have some cockamamie rat left wing bum Judge. Slow us down. Arrest them now. Stop them now before it's too late. The American people are screaming for leadership. We cannot suffer any more of these indignities and these assaults upon our Heritage, our culture. In our nation, we cannot take it anymore. Black lives matter was founded by hard core Marxists. Well established. They've even boasted about it on the Internet. What happens after this crisis stage? Normalization. Of the abolition of our freedoms. And what happens then? Demagogues like Newsome. Demagogues like Cuomo. Tell us that we do not need Business is we do not need free market. We need a government. Who will help us And the radical Left wing Democrat Party, the racist left wing Party of the Democrats. Will be the salvation for America. Remember a few weeks ago, I speculated us the widest Pelosi. Why does she want this country to collapse? What are they thinking? And then it dawned on me. It dawned on me that way back when During the Great Depression. The people were dependent upon the government. Not only that, but there was another element to it. Billions were made in the black market. Ha! Now you're starting to get the picture. Coupons. Or given out by the government for basics Gasoline, sugar. Bread, You name it milk. And there was a great black market in coupons for basic goods and who controlled it. Well do some tracing of the lineage of some of those destabilizing America. Look into their past their fathers. Their ancestors.

K. exiting the E. U. so certainly I think everybody in this whole negotiation process in Dublin would agree it's better for Ireland to have a stable governments to lead the country three about process not the last politics is politics the voters are given their verdict not spend we have this very complicated picture on resolving about is certainly not going to be easy Chris page it's not just an island that old certainties are coming under scrutiny this week saw an unusual cloud of uncertainty descend over German politics the woman angler medical had hand picked as her successor and a great crime Kambala or a K. K. resigned as leader of the governing CDU the Christian Democrats the move was raised all sorts of questions about the future direction of German politics as I've been hearing from Damien McGinnis in Berlin this latest crisis was ready Spock's by a local florist see she shows after votes in the eastern German state of Thuringia in which I'm peas in her policy I voted for candidates as premier of that state's also supported by the far right AFP this display needs that she lost control of her policy because one of the big round was going on within the center right CD you is whether to work with the following safety particularly in eastern German states like syringes or whether to keep this firewall gave the far right that we have right now so I KK stepping down as clearly as you say a very poor reflection on the leadership of the CD you but how much of a blow to the party and indeed to angler miracles supposed plans for a succession if anything the struggles of any potential successors show how indispensable under the necklace so personally speaking it hasn't really hits her very hard but what it does to damages under Michael's vision for her policy and for Germany because what time the mac was done what I leading Germany is ready for a policy to the sensor grounds and what's cook conservative critics want to do is really make a center right possible Conservative Party again on this is a big impacts on the country as a whole because this part is the biggest party in Germany it could well be in government next time and the question is is Germany's biggest policy does journeys next government become more conservative I'm potentially one day even work with the far right safety or does it potentially stay in the US and around the maybe even one day from
Climate Change: A Partisan Issue?
"On today show on joined by Ryan and Williams and Rebecca Liba Ryan Williams is executive vice president targeted victory involves Mitt. Romney's two thousand twelve campaign spokesman. He joins us from Cape Cod road. And Rebecca Liba is a climate politics and science reporter for Mother Jones. She joins us from Washington. DC Ryan want to start by framing framing climate change as a policy position within the context of the current presidential election. And obviously I think it's fair to say that this like everything else. In American politics politics are everything else in American life is going to be seen as a partisan issue doesn't strike you that there is a serious policy difference between Democrats it's and Republicans or is this just a case of the Republican seeing the Democrats saw for this therefore we must be against it. I think there's a significant policy difference. Prince obviously president trump has mocked the green new deal which is the cornerstone of the Democrats Climate Change Agenda. It was put out by some of the more liberal politicians in the party party but it's become essentially a mainstream position amongst Democratic primary voters to support this and I think you're gonNA see every Democratic presidential candidate to some degree have to support report this or else risk alienating liberal voters who make up a significant portion of their primary electorate with Republicans trump is marcus repeatedly. He's mocked the concept of climate change. And I don't think his position is essentially where a number of Republicans are I think. Republicans are beginning to move a bit on acknowledging knowledge in the climate. Change is real for many years. Most Republicans running had said. The science is disputed. I think we're getting beyond that. Debate to some extent with mainstream Republicans publican's trump not being one of them. And I think now the question is how to solve it. The Democrats are taking it pretty dramatic and far left approach with the green new deal. I think some some Republicans you're GONNA see propose more moderate solutions. You've seen Lamar. Alexander Retiring Senator from Tennessee. Come out with a plan recently. That relies on investments and technology nuclear nuclear power. So I think that's kind of an overview basically of of how the debate is shaping up now with the two parties Rebecca if that is the case that there is a gathering consensus consensus among as Ryan says mainstream Republicans that there's not much dispute about the science that climate change is a thing have the proponents of the green renew deal possibly made a mistake in the packaging because obviously there's a couple of screaming red flags that to a lot of even moderate Republican Publican. Voters agree that the Republican base doesn't necessarily reflect what the president is saying on climate change. Denial polls consistently show Oh that acceptance of climate change science and belief that it's getting worse is the majority of voters while the president's still regularly. He calls this something like a hoax. But I think what the green new deal conversation has really done. Here is broaden out. The conversation on climate change for so long talk about climate solutions was really relegated to an environmental policy into this niche topic in debate and you saw that reflected in in the primary debates in past election cycles where there was no climate change debate that even came up because it felt like this bottom tier issue for voters what the green new deal has done is brought in that out and connect climate change to other policies like economic justice distace like social injustice like healthcare and. I think it's too early to tell if this is a tactical mistake but I think you've seen the results. It's just a few months. How climate change has really soared in the Democratic Party and it's consistently now ranked as a top tier issue and God for the first time fifteen? Eighteen minutes of debate in the first two presidential debates. Royan is there a way that you can run and win on this even if you do need to win. Lean over conservative voters as Rebecca pointed out there. There has been a tendency certainly among some parts of the Democratic Party and the left elsewhere to tie climate a change into things like economic justice and social justice traditional I guess Social Democrat left wing positions. Is that a mistake. Dyke from the democratic. Party's point of view. Do you think would it make more sense for them to run on actually the economic benefits of attempting to reinvent environmental environmental policy. All of which it can be plausibly argued that there are many well. I agree with Rebecca that this new deal certainly has raised the issue of climate change to a degree that it has is not been in recent years. It's being discussed now both parties with democratic debates. And of course president trump tweets about it frequently. I don't know if social justice and other liberal concerns are the best way to build consensus amongst the broader swath of voters. It certainly something that they're going to have to discuss right now. The Democratic candidates because they're trying to win over Democratic or credit base voters to secure the nomination so it makes political sense to focus on those issues right now in a general election. I really do think the economy's the biggest issue and the main attack on the green deal. He'll anybody who signs on the green new deal is that this is a job killing economy. Busting Bill because of its price tag because of the restrictions that puts on businesses and free enterprise and I think Democrats if they signed onto the new deal which most I think will are GonNa have to counter that with an economic message so I think in general election. They need to beep prepared if they're gonNA support this to counter the narrative that this is GonNa kill jobs. They're going to have to deal with that when they get to the general election whoever the Democratic nominee is Rebecca. Do you think there is oh has been just a brutally if you like economic case for combating climate change that you can actually make prophets From renewable energies. And is it arguable. That the Democrats and broadly left wing parties elsewhere in the world have been a bit shy about making the argument. I can remember myself talking to people. Involved in Green Energy in Abu Dhabi in one of the reasons they were excited about it was not just because of the environmental benefits because they thought the United Arab Emirates wearing a fantastic position to make immense amounts of money from it for so long. Climate Change has been framed in the US Set lease as a conversation around the costs of action and what it would cost to transition the economy from fossil fuels to renewables. And I think what's changed. Actually for especially in the Democratic Party is talking about this more as an economic opportunity and not just framing this as what are the costs in. How do we pay for it? But what are the costs of inaction first of all which is a conversation that we don't often focus and I think press should definitely always work into stories about talking about paying for climate change but I also think the green new deal what what that has done is give Democrats vision for in economic opportunity here. An investment in things like infrastructure in jobs. And that does I think give voters and economic message. Here that isn't just about. We need to fight climate change because of the moral reasons but because there there are economic reasons that are affecting you in your lifetime that this kind of investment could help you right now and. That's that's the message that I think. Green new deal. Proponents are trying to make. This election is a good test for how well they will make that message. Roy and do you think there are actual political opportunities for Republicans and other conservatives in approaching climate change if for example a Republican not necessarily presidential nominee but any republican running running for office next year was to decide to make this thing and get out in front of it. Could they reach their anyway. They could take Republican voters with them. All would a plurality of that Republican base just think that candidate X. had completely lost their mind gone over the wall and might as well be working for the other team. No I think there is an opportunity especially for some blue state. Republican senators are up for reelection in two thousand sixteen. I'm thinking of People Cory Gardner senator from Colorado who faces the very challenging reelection campaign. Proposing a common sense. Bipartisan solution. To address climate change. I think could give political benefits to a Republican running blue-state sensible moderate and have the ability to bring in swing voters and potentially some Democrats as well into their coalition. I do think though to achieve that. We're going to have to put forward a plan. Somewhat in line with what Senator Alexander has talked about which is basically a plan that doesn't have government overreach doesn't have the government dictating how things are going to happen. Happen to combat climate change but rather sparking the investment and technology that would be required to address it and then relying on something that Democrats have to some degree of opposed over the years which is nuclear power. Nuclear Power does not produce carbon in the air. It's something that Republicans have supported for years. And it's something. I think that a Republican publican could use as part of a broader solution to the topic. That would not alienate conservative voters. Just as a final thought on this rebecca when Democratic candidates have talked talked about the green new deal and when they've talked about climate change in general they have made frequently an appeal to some sense of national unity. The idea that this needs to be a collective effort something that the entire nation needed to get behind do together. Does it strike you especially in these polarized type of partisan sometimes that that kind of national cohesion is still a viable option. The American people are far. Less polarized on the subject of climate change than the political elites are and there are a few areas where the political elites Congress had some areas of consensus. They're very small alike. Nuclear Power has found some bipartisan consensus carbon capture and certain technological investments. The major challenge in election in is bringing this kind of message to a popular base. And I think this is truly a climate change election. The first time that climate change is front and center her and it will be a huge test for the green new deal going forward. Rebecca Lieb and Ryan Williams. Thank you both very much for joining

"wing party" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Hi, everybody. New York Times article about the elections for the European parliament. Election puts Europe this the headline election puts Europe on the frontline of the battle with populism. So I made the point. That is the heritage Amish, the of all left wing. Reporting is the use of terms to make their point not to be accurate. There are other no left wing populist, the I can't name them. Can you? There's no such thing. Exactly. As another thing. There are. No right wing parties in Europe. They're only far right parties there. No left-wing parties in Europe. Progressive. There's liberal. Let alone far left, far left. Here's the article Matteo Salvini than triumph on Monday after thumping victory for his far right? Far-right go. Italy elected a far, right? Party. Now, when you think far right? Why do you think you think something close to not the case of Italy think fascist, right? Lissa Laney was far. Right. That's the way it goes. Actually, if you read. If you re let's see Joel Goldberg. Really important book liberal fascism. And if you read our friend. Too many names in my brain, who has done videos for us, and who made the movie on Barack Obama from India. Of course. When I forget that doesn't mean that's not central to my life. I forgot the name, it's an issue. It's not a big issue. Anyway. The next to soothe his written on this. And so is Joe Goldberg, the leftist roots fascism. But people don't wanna know about it. Because if it's too upsetting. If you're a peasant incubator for resurgent nationalism in recent years now, also feels like an active battleground.

Swedish Jews fair number leaving Sweden because of the of the amount of attacks against them. Just last was last week was Swedish Jewish woman was stabbed by a boy, a Muslim immigrant from the Arab immigrant from the Middle East. Is every immigrant from the Middle East antisemitic. And violent, of course not. But is the majority forget violent is the majority antisemitic. Of course they are. How could they not be the groping in societies that hate Jews? You don't get these reports because the press lies with the ease with which they print. But that's, that's the reason. That's people bring values with them, right? They don't come top Bulow. Rasi top Ulli. Raza. Clean slate. What is the latest from Ilan Omar or is it from two? What's the other one? Rashida to leave about America's recasts entire foreign policy to be more like the world. It was a contest. I'm continuing from the New York Times between angry disaffected nationalist, see the beauty is angry on the left. Got it. That's a thing of their ever angry leftist. It's only angry. Rightists. Disaffected nationalists wanna beat back what they see as a remote and overreaching bureaucracy in Brussels..
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Lieberman Govan And Israel discussed on Morning Edition
"Israel will hold elections again. It seemed like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is certain to get a fourth consecutive term, when his party won elections last month. But then came a stunner, he failed to form a governing coalition at his call. Israel's parliament voted last night to hold unprecedented new elections on September, seventeenth NPR's Daniel estrin is on the line from Jerusalem, Daniel, you had a late night. I started. Hey all so Netanyahu failed to get what done. Exactly he failed to form a parliamentary majority. He needed just one more party to get on board. A right wing party led by former defence minister of ignore Lieberman and Lieberman wooden. Join Netanyahu got furious have listen to this. A victim Lieberman Govan at them up my pillow. The Hamilton shield. Now, said Lieberman is dragging the country to new elections. His conditions for joining the coalition were way too high. He wanted to conscripts ultra-orthodox Jews to the military. That's now is saying, but that's not really the main issue. The main issue here is that Netanyahu is probably about to be facing criminal charges for corruption, and he tried to build a coalition that would allow him to make some pretty dramatic moves. So a sitting prime minister cannot be indicted and to form a coalition that would help them. Do that was a really big ask and it just complicated all these negotiations. So when he couldn't form the government, he did something else. He pushed for new elections. He wanted to block the Israeli President from being able to pick someone else to form the government. This sounds fairly chaotic Daniel, what, what is the reaction like there? What are people saying it is? I think people are in shock. It's the first time this is ever happened in Israel to have elections. And then a month later to throw all that away to call new ones, and there were in the last few days. These threats of new elections. And but there was a sense that it was kind of this big game of chicken last second Tahu, this brilliant tactician, that everyone knew would figure out a way to get a majority and he didn't Netanyahu as you point out has had some scandals following him around. Is he expected to win the next round of elections or vulnerable? I think he's in a very vulnerable position. The last election was very close. And if some of his previous voters, this time around blame him for dragging the country to elections, again his party could lose votes and he does win again. It will be harder for him to form a government. He'll be even more desperate than this past round and his political or his potential coalition partners will will be even more demanding in what they want in return. So all of this political chaos could be signalling to us than Thanh with all of his legal troubles is no longer a strong figure that a majority of lawmakers or at least on the right wing are willing to rally around this is not just a shock for Israel. It's also surprise to the White House. President Trump is a close ally of Netanyahu's today, members of Trump's team, working on a Mideast peace deal are into Roussel has this them, right? Well, it could be a major blow. Jared Kushner, Jason green Blat landed in Jerusalem last night to advance their peace proposal. Seems like the worst possible timing the last time there were Isreaeli elections, the White House, delayed its peace plan that could happen again. And by the time you haven't Isreaeli government. You're in November and US primary season starts twenty twenty presidential elections. Coming up the peace plan
Likudnt: Israels political crisis
"In Israel just last month. Benyamin Netanyahu was celebrating a strong showing by his Likud party in parliamentary elections. He had been forced to call an early poll as he faced a raft of corruption allegations, his victory seemed like a vote of confidence by the Israeli people. And he grinned ingredient cheering crowds on election night, but all has not gone smoothly since Israel has many political parties and mister Netanyahu has struggled to build the coalition he needs to form a government. He called publicly on one party leader. His former defense minister of eager Lieberman to join him. Let's through this of net, the victim liberal, unfortunately, until this moment, including tonight, I didn't manage to complete a victory Lieberman to avoid elections. But whoever looks at the reality that we need to be responsible and former government immediately those please failed. So a few minutes after midnight, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset voted to dissolve it. So for reports from Israel for the economist and recently wrote a book about mister Netanyahu. And this is just thirty days after it was sworn in seven weeks after Laos election in. This is unprecedented in his right. But it'd go history. And why it's been so difficult to, to build a coalition Netanyahu proclaimed victory, because his block of right wing, religious parties had a majority of five seats in the Knesset. So it seemed that he had one. However, to make that victory reality needed to get all those policies cooperating together in one coalition and one issue the issue of the draft of Sheva students, students in religious seminaries proved so prove so contentious that one of the parties demanded the law on this. We should be ready drafted the previous be passed as literally, without changing, a comma, while some of the religious parties in the coalition demanded major changes to the law, and the prime minister. Currently so prime minister, who was very eager to begin his fifth tablet, prime minister couldn't bridge those differences. So what happens now? So what should have happened last night at midnight was with Netanyahu deadline on the tiny allocated to him to form the coalition up sewing else you've received the opportunity to, to form a coalition by his Rayleigh low, but there was also, there's those close into never been used with specifies that dissolved the whole process of foreign governments stops and the country goes back to the polls, and that is the closet into Neo used and therefore in three and a half months Israel will be held another election. And meanwhile, mister Netanyahu is under investigation on corruption allegations. How will that then play out in the current absence of government and the potential for a different one was really Mr. Gatien's ready been wraps up, and the attorney general has tentatively decided to indict into now on bribery and fraud in through? In, in those three investigations Mosul efforts over the last few weeks when he should have been trying to solve this problem between his coalition partners was trying to get the parties to agree to vote on various pieces of legislation, which would grant him immunity from prosecution and would shield him from any intervention of the high court in that decision. That is now that has now been shelved those pieces of today's another go ahead. Certainly not until the election, and another government is formed, assuming wins the next election form that government. So he's lost very valuable time for him. And in that time the hearing. Harry's. It will proceed and there's a chance that before the attorney general decides to, to indict attending and to charge them in court for bribery, he, he won't have any relation in place. It to shield him has steadfastly denied the allegations ever since the investigations begun over three years ago. He said, there's nothing in them, but step after step it turned out that there is some serious evidence, which led to form investigation. But now he's instead of is standing up in court against he's trying to vade any kind of you say this situation is unprecedented. And, you know, everyone would have expected that mister Netanyahu could have formed, a government does the fact that he hasn't suggest that, perhaps his rivals smell blood and are positioning themselves for power. Well, certainly Evita Lumine the leader of small, nationalist secular, particle, Estrella bay, taint, Israel, our home, who demanded that. The law be. Passed. And that was the reason why there is no code Asian. He says he felt that he could challenge the two now. And see his calculation is that now is, is going down eventually and therefore, there's no reason for him to be a member. His coalition is ready staking out, new ground in the right wing for the in the post tenure era. So he's, he's the first major is right wing politician, Israel to openly challenge. It's in recent years, and they'll be others who will follow him, if there is this large group of parties. Why is Mr. LeBron Lieberman ended up as the king-maker here? Well, the there was nothing, you know, block of parties had a majority of five seats, those five seats, a walked LeBron's party without those five seats than the majority, and what about the peace process? Jared Kushner is is in the country with this US led plan in hand on solving is really Palestinian issues. But there's no government for. Him to talk to. Well, we've got used to the fact that the Trump administration delaying disposing the unveiling of its much way to peace plan. But now that finally have gone out to this piece for spiritedly workshop beret next month. I doubt that they'll delay once again due to the political turmoil in Israel. It's mainly anyway, for the Americans to get together with our bed regimes and work out some kind of economic offense not yet, the ethical stage of, of, of the Trump, and if we ever get to that stage, that stage will will probably be postponed due to these Rayleigh election. Right. And how do you think the, the election will go? Do you, do you think that mister Netanyahu will be able to form a coalition the next time around? It's wouldn't election two months ago. He didn't manage to take that victory and, and China into a function government, but he, he, he wouldn't the right wing religious, bodies one majority, which was not known large one, but it was pretty clear. And it's difficult to see the opposition overturning that this point. But we're in uncharted territory. Now we've never had a second election in the same year's election held just only five months after the previous one. And there's also this new rift within the right wing have a right wing party. Basically saying that Netanyahu, dreitzer, former government, he failed, and now we probably won't be sporting in the future. So there's a sort of shift in the political map in Israel, which which will have to wait and see how that pans out. Thank you very much for your time.
What do the European election results tell us abou politics?
"We begin at this hour. However, with the results from the EU elections. I know you're saying what do I care about the elections? The EU man. What do I care over there? We're over here. Well, it does have some pretty significant ramifications, not only for foreign policy in the United States, but also it goes to sort of mentality of a lot of folks in the west right now, so called populist, nationalist movement, that has been burgeoning across Europe, and the United States is on the move these elections show, it again, according to the Associated Press Francis president and the leader of Italy's eurosceptic far-right movement jock. For the role of chief powerbroker on the continent on Monday after elections to the European parliament hollowed out the traditional polling middle after four days of balloting that drew to a close Sunday across the European Union's twenty eight countries ended the domination of the main center, right? And center left parties in parliament and established the anti forces on the right and the environmentalists on left as forces to be reckoned with the center, right? And center left had basically agreed on open, immigration and free trade. Those were sort of the basic premises of the centre-right, and central now I think most people still agree on free-trade, although there are folks on the environmentalists left who do not. But I think what's happened here is that people basically on the on the far-right, meaning the nonsense righty, just regular. Right. And the have decided that they are tired of taking orders from people in Brussels people. They did not vote for bureaucrats that are elected. We'll get to decide how they do their business, and they've also decided that they are tired of not being in control of their own borders. When it comes to immigration. One of the things about being a member of the EU. Is that if somebody enters Germany, as an immigrant, they can then move anywhere inside the EU and a lot of folks are getting uptight with this. And I think for some pretty good reasons, voters delivered the highest turnout in twenty years, rejecting mainstream politics in France, Germany, Britain, and Italy, the results could make the business of governing Europe, even trickier, leaving the parliament deadlock issues to come including immigration, a major trade agreement with the United States, global warming regulation of the tech industry. And of course, Brexit, there's been a lot of talk about the EU regulating, top-down environmentalism the far left is picked up points there. But so has the far right. Which, basically says no, we're done with this. We're not going to cram down on ourselves, all sorts of environmental regulations that make our lives worse, while the chief polluters on planet earth are outside of Europe. The outcome of the election is already setting off power struggles in France. President Emmanuel Macron's party narrowly lost the French far-right led by marine Le Pen, Macron's party was poised to secure twenty one seats to twenty two for men's national rally. Spent Monday busily amassing allies ahead of a summit Tuesday in Brussels, hoping to build a durable coalition. Now it's worthwhile. Noting here. What was originally designed to do? The EU was originally designed for a couple of purposes. The European Commonwealth, it was designed number one to have an integrated market, which most people still agree with. But number two, it was designed effectively to keep Germany down to integrate Europe for future security threats end to integrate Europe against the threat to the east, namely, the Soviet Union. Well, Soviet Union no longer exists. And a lot of countries are saying no, the chief threat right now is not coming from any external power, the chief threat right now is coming from those bureaucrats in Brussels, who wants to run our lives in Italy. That is how beanies right-wing party won a third of the country's vote. They're poised to become the biggest parties in European parliament with twenty eight seats in the seven hundred fifty one legislature by midday Salvini had already spoken to lapenne Hungary's, hardline, anti-immigrant, Prime Minister, Viktor, Orban, and Brexit leader. Nigel Farraj and was promising to singlehandedly bring together, an international group of nationalists. The centre-right European People's Party, the central of socialists and Democrats dominated parliament, but they are getting creamed. They're getting creamed in these polls writing what they called Europe's. Green wave environmentalist parties taking action on climate change, did make strong gains, particularly in Germany, where you would figure a lot of Angela Merkel's voters have been moving to the left, basically everything is becoming polarized has gone can fin is one of the leading candidates from parties in the future majority of European parliament goes thrust without question there isn't one without us in Germany, Anglo, Merckel, centre-right movement, also lost ground. A subdued EP candidate emend for Weber said, we're facing shrinking center from now on those who want to have a strong European Union. Have to join forces. Real power. In Europe remains in the hands of the twenty eight Member States parliaments influences grown they've helped improve air flight safety, and you're up they've cut down on plastics use. They've basically regulated enormous number of different industries inside of Europe. And a lot of nations are saying, I don't want Anglo-American deciding for Britain. What exactly are immigration policy ought to be Anglo Merckel is very upset about all of this, obviously, she says dark forces at play here. But the reality is that she helped break apart that centre-right centre-left coalition that has been governing European politics for very long time. Germany has been hesitant to report the rise in crime levels. Thanks to increased migration in Germany, but those increased tram levels have been taking place. The same has been true of anti-semitism in Europe, folks on the left wished to pretend that anti-semitism in Europe is purely in effect of the far right? Neo Nazi parties, which are indubitably and have always been disgusting and horrify, but it is important to note that when it comes to anti-semitism across Europe is from attic rise is in large part due to the increase in the number of Muslim refugees being taken from the Middle East. Now they're the only country that has refused to join your reporting on this, basically, as Germany. So Germany keeps saying that all of the violence in Germany directed against Jews is being directed by the far right? However, it is important to note that a lot of the statistics that they cite do not include a huge majority of the incidents as politically motivated. So, for example, there's a research and information center for anti-semitism report that came out last year, and it's that there is an increase in anti semitic offenses in two thousand eighteen over a thousand in Berlin alone. They according to the study, most incidents had no apparent political motive forty nine percents of cases had no traceable motive in politically motivated cases right wing extremism was identified as the main motive followed by activists hostile toward the state of Israel, which would be nine percent. So eighteen percents for white wing extremism nine percent for activists hostile toward the state of Israel Islamic motive was only identified in two percents of the cases. But again, that is leaving more than half of all these incidents off the board. So we just don't really know in those particular cases, and if Germany were to follow the broader patterns in Europe, it would suggest that it is anti semitism, that has led to this massive uptick. There's a report from the European Union agency for fundamental rights back last year. James, Kirk reported for tablet magazine, it found that much of the upswing is predominantly, Muslim and origin. According to the findings are dispiriting it confirmed. What many? No, but he will say that European anti-semitism is predominantly Muslim origin, followed in close, second by the left wing variety. According to respondents who experience some form events Medicare aspens in the past five years. Thirty percents of the perpetrators are Muslim twenty one percent where people espousing left wing view, that would be a majority only thirteen percents, expressed a right wing view. A third of respondents in Europe, where Jewish say that they no longer feel safe there as using are considering emigrating left-wingers responsible for a full quarter of anti semitic harassment in the United Kingdom kingdom, that is more than twice that of right-wingers and exceeded only by those views, or religious background, the victims could not describe in Germany, where the absorption of over one million mostly Muslim immigrants has propelled, the nationalist alternative for Deutsche lend into becoming the country's third largest political party, sparking fears of a right-wing revival forty one percent of the perpetrators were reported to be Muslim just twenty percent right wing. So something is getting hidden here something is getting hit in here really. The German government is reporting as they did today that eighty nine percents of all anti semitic incidents were traceable to the far-right. But this survey from the EU is finding that forty one percents of perpetrators of anti-semitic harassment were reported to be Muslim in Germany and just twenty percent right wing. That's a massive massive discrepancy suggest that perhaps the government of Germany is not being honest about its districts. The reason all this is important is because if you want to acknowledge, what exactly is happening. In europe. You have to acknowledge that taking invest swabs of people without any move toward assimilating, those people or figuring out, whether those folks agree with western values, that's going to be a problem. Any place you do. This is going to be a problem. It doesn't matter any prevailing culture, or a bunch of folks from the non-privileged culture who oppose the values the prevailing culture, enter that will create cultural conflict, and it doesn't matter. Which cultures you're talking about. And this is not to suggest that Muslims can't be great citizens of Europe or the United States at all. They can be. But if you were taking invest, unvetted, Muslim migration from areas of the world that have no history of western values are really shocked when vast one of those people are not simulating in that has some problems with it. This is I think what is driving people nuts in Europe. And in the United States this notion. The can't be protective of your country's culture by asking that folks assimilate. And then if you do that, you are some sort of racist that you are some sort of bigot. It's really despicable. And that's what the left is the center has done to the center has been doing this in Europe. And that's why more people are moving away from the centre. They're saying if we cannot say that we want immigrants who come into our countries to be vetted, so that they believe in our system, or willing to change to believe in our system. Then why exactly would listen to you or bringing in a lot of these folks without regard for that, again, multi-culturalism is such a fail in Europe that even angle miracle, and David Cameron have suggested multi-culturalism was a fail. The same England who brought a million Muslim refugees from the Middle East is suggested that multi-culturalism is a giant fail because it is. And yet, the political class, in Europe refuses to acknowledge the multi-culturalism is a fail because the alternative would be to call for assimilation or too slow immigration. It'd be more picky about immigration. And a lot of folks in European Europe, chattering classes, don't want to do that, not really sympathy reasons but because many of the countries of Europe rely on new immigrants. In order to provide the labor base for what's happening in Europe Europe has an incredibly slow growth rate. Thanks to lower birth rates. It's not a wonder that people in Europe are polarizing on these
Freedom Party, Europe And Austria discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"Just a few weeks ago. Things were looking rosy for Austrian politician, Heinz, Christian stock. Mr. struck has hard, right. Freedom Party had been ruling in a governing coalition and he was the country's vice chancellor and heads. The his- at a campaign event for the upcoming European elections. He spoke from a beer tent about some of his favorite themes must see fit into human, and I'm. With a beer glass in front of him. He railed against immigration saying it causes massive development failures. He said, natives or ancestral, people becoming a minority in Austria, that the country, did not want is limitation. Now his career has taken a nosedive. He was seen in video. It was a sting was filmed covertly in twenty seventeen and it's all happening beef or so. It's become known as the beef scandal. He's discussing the possibility of illegal donations from woman who claims to be the niece of a Russian oligarch Emiko Voy is a senior editor of the economist, and was recently reporting in Austria. And there was also some of the rubber dunk stuff about controlling the media in this being part of a deal in return, the state contracts in the wake of the scandal. The Austrian chancellor Sebastian coots dissolved the coalition government by calling for elections in September. The government has fallen apart effectively. It has. Collapsed because the Freedom Party was the minority party propping up the conservative party in government in Austria. So the Israeli government that is now having to go forward to hold new elections. And we'll see what happens then. So this, right. Wing party. That was propping up. The coalition government has now got itself into some very visible trouble what happens now. The interesting thing about story is that you had is very charismatic young leaders best in courts, taking over one of those traditional parties Austrian conservatives, typically, these are the kind of policies having difficulty at the moment and having these populist challenges across Europe. Would he did reach out to the Freedom Party, which is pretty hard core is much better to bring these guys into government? We can sort out things to the satisfaction of the broad centre-right and further. Right. The problem now is that has been up Salih torn asunder to presumably in the forthcoming. Elections than the Freedom Party this far right? Party will do extremely poorly, and perhaps, the, the conservative party will get an outright majority. I think it's quite difficult for conservatives to get that, right. Majority struggled for years, but was needed coalition partners, the Freedom Party. We simply don't know you would say, wouldn't you, this is one of the great pratfalls of political drama, in Europe, but let's not forget, they do have a very strong base very strong in certain parts of Austria, and also Australia, bit defiant, and often when they find that they've got a leader, whatever their political taste, the basal leader under pressure as often stood very firm. It's not absolutely clear that being hugely embarrassed once figure is gone destroys your vote Sebastian could However, I think, will not want to go back into a coalition with these guys really has had his fingers bird. And what about beyond Austria as we head into the European parliamentary elections, will this story have resonance for all of those people thinking? About other populist right-wing hard line parties. I think the kind of nuanced populism that's to in courts represents still has a lotta vote here across Europe. And don't think it's on the way, the European elections of probably getting to suggest that what does it mean it means coming up with solutions of possible solutions to immigration and asylum crises, which you, usually about keeping the people who want to come quite a long way from Europe's borders, and particularly the borders of its inner state. So it can mean trying to do deals to keep them just at the edge of the broader e you. But I think that way of taking some of the language of hatred and stripping away, leaving that to the fall reut was same time, you preach pragmatism, but you really try to clamp down on the numbers coming in. I do think that is the politics. The is gaining in salience across Europe. That election to the European parliament begins tomorrow with all twenty eight European countries. Voting over three days. In the five years since the last elections, nationalist parties like Austria's, Freedom, Party have seen their fortunes rise. But one feature of the last few years in Europe has been the growth of extreme parties on the right. And, and on the left particularly on the right. I suppose Chris Lockwood is economists Europe editor you see in Italy, the Northern League Lega becoming a much more powerful force in politics, you see in Spain, the rise of this small new, vox party in Poland shift to the conservative party of law, and Justice, and so on, and so forth. So it's to be expected in these elections that you will see a bit of a tilt in the European parliament towards the far. Right. Does that mean that the sort of overall tilt of the parliament itself will we'll be to the right? Do you think I think this has been rather exaggerated? If you take the combined forces of what you could call the nationalist right if you define those parties as being one. That are outside of the mainstream existing parties. I wouldn't expect them to gain more than forty or fifty or maybe sixty seats which is a sizable number. But remember that the European parliament is seven hundred fifty one strong. You say this rise in the sort of extreme parties, isn't quite so worrisome as, as some might think. But I mean, do you think it's election kind of takes the temperature of the, the you as a whole? Well, that's a very interesting question. I don't want to underestimate what's going on here, you are seeing forces that previously were not in mainstream politics, taking bigger rose in national parliaments, and bigger roles in the European parliament. So that does matter because it also requires the parties, particularly on the center right shifting a bit to the right in order to fend off that challenge. So, so there is an impact, and it's a response to a number of things one, the continued depression of wages and the hangover from the European Europe. Crisis of two thousand and ten to eleven and before that the worldwide credit crunch of two thousand eight hundred words the fact that Europe did receive an enormous number of migrants coming out of the Middle East, and that's led to a tremendous backlash in quite a number of countries. So these are genuine things that are genuinely happening in their, they're shifting politics to certain extent in a right with direction. So does it seem to you, then that people are kind of losing faith in the EU as an institution? No. It didn't think so actually, if you look at all the polling, it suggests that support for the EU is rather high levels. Of course, it went down during the economic crises pass those not the economies are in a fantastic state, but economic growth is returned unemployment has come down. And of course, you have the experiment of Britain Britain vertically leave the EU and has got himself into a tremendous mess ever since not able to decide quite what the mechanism for leaving would be. Be not being able to form a consensus on when and how to do it. And as a result every other country where there have been. Exit type movements of old hundred around. Maybe it isn't such a great idea. So the fascinating thing is that despite all of the problems that Europe's been through maybe even because of them because it was seemed to have just about survived them. People have come back to thinking, well, maybe this organization isn't so bad after Chris, thank you very much for your
The strain in Spain: an election looms
"Hello and welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. In Japan policies and attitudes. That took hold after the second. World War have repercussions that still affect day to day life this week the government at last apologized to tens of thousands of people who were forcibly sterilized in post-war eugenics. Push our correspondent talks to one of them. And the rebuilding of Japan after the war took on an almost military quality as soldiers swapped uniforms for suits. That's made the country's work ethic. Famous notorious even as a new emperor ascends next week. Japanese employees are getting extra time off work to celebrate. But they're not sure they wanted. First up though. 2017 Spain's wealthy semi autonomous region of Catalonia made a push for independence. And former that sheet or the no. That unconstitutional referendum. It voted to break away from Spain. Madrid soon crushed secession bid. But the on issue was far from over it helped trigger this Sunday's general election, the third in little more than three years Spain's, prime minister. Pedro Sanchez called the snap poll in February that those cleaness. Another econ seem worst after a crushing defeat in parliament all Kombucha that up a lower than yours. Equa- his minority. Socialist government had depended on support from small regional parties, including the Catalan nationalists, but they voted with Mr. Sanchez's right wing opposition to reject his twenty nineteen budget plan. His government was paralyzed. The coming election is supposed to break that impasse. But the political landscape remains a fractured. The simmering cuddle on crisis, looms, large, still and Europe is looking for a stabilizing force in uncertain times. Spang goes to the polls on Sunday, the twenty eighth, and it's a very important election because you have another European country that is plunged into real political crisis. Christopher Lockwood is our editor for the Los Eero Spain's been led by government that any had twenty four percent of parliament's, very weak minority government and the prospect after this election is you still went to have a majority and we've seen this pattern happen quite a lot in Europe in Germany. It took many months to form a coalition Belgium had terrible problems putting together Italy the same. It's a growing problem. The fragmentation of political parties in Europe. And I think we're about to see on Sunday a nasty new case of it in Spain. So what do you expect the outcome of the election to being do think Mr. Sanchez will be able to hold onto power? I think that the socialist party which currently forms the minority government will again emerge as the largest party. But it will be very well short of having a majority and the real problem is that there are no. No, viable poss- to a stable code shouldn't at the moment. And the reason for that is the political spectrum has fragmented with the entry of a couple of new parties until recently Spain essentially had two big parties since left in the center right party. But what you've seen is the entry of radical left party Damus a party more or less than the center called the Donoso the citizens party and now about to enter parliament for the first time a fairly far, right? And he migration party cools. Vox on the problem is when you've got five twenty parties in parliament, none of them can form a coalition very easily because none of them seem to want to work with each other. So the danger is that you'll end up having some very inconclusive coalition negotiations fully by another election. If you have another election this year as many people are predicting that will be the fourth of action in four years. This is not a happy state of affairs. But as you say Spanish politics has not always been this way. What's driven all this fragmentation? Well, a couple of things I think clearly one was financial crisis followed by the year is in crisis and this hit Spain very hard. Indeed that led to a demand for new parties to come and solve the problem. If you like, but then the other thing that changed in Spain was the emergence of Catalonia and separatism there as a political issue. So it brought back onto the table. The problem of nationalism in Spanish politics. This takes you all the way back to Franco, of course, early in the Spanish, civil war body parts of it was precisely for over Catalonia and tempted succession there, and none of this has gone away. There has been a tension between Catalonia and the center founders of years, but it had been hoped that it was sort of put to bed then that all changed with demands by Catalina have an independence referendum and then actually declare independence. Both of those things were not permitted under the current constitution. As a result of which the independence that they unilaterally declared was decreed illegal with. Oppressed by direct rule from Madrid. And the people who promoted it put in jail, they're now being tried and nine of them face the prospect of extremely long jail sentences, which again, but devils the whole political atmosphere and also poisons relationships between a number of the stabbing parties and what about outside Spain. How much do you think this election matters in terms of European stability? Well, it will be engine to see what happens with vox, FOX gets taken into a coalition. I didn't think was very likely, by the way. But it could if that happens that will clearly send a lot of shivers down European spines because it will just to mate taking into power of other right wing parties. I think more likely is that Spain will just continue in this rather unfortunate period of political paralysis that's going through. And I think that's bad for Europe in a different way. The reason is that Europe needs more strong countries. Traditionally Europe was run by sort of Franco German access and one of the great strengths of having Britain in the EU. Is to certain extent balancing third power between those two having something to say to both countries to the Germans to be like Germany and apostle of the free market and sound budgetary principles. But also to the French preserving the importance of national foreign defense policies in particular certain sort of sovereigntists attitude towards the way things were done in Europe. Now Britain's leaving the you'll says it wants to leave the and people would like to know we'll be another power to balance out the Franco-German access and Spain sometimes suggested could have been one of those that seems very unlikely if it remains paralyzed it's the calm bit has terrible problems and now political problems. So I think that instability in Spain, you know, robes Europe of another potentially valuable additional actor, Chris. Thanks very much for coming in my pleasure.
Nationalist spectre hovers over Spanish poll debate
"Face one of the most divisive national elections in living memory with two electoral blocs, competing to portray each other as an existential threat Spain's feature Ben whole discusses the last days of the campaign within mount our reporter in Madrid. Dusko, you know, second books, but she didn't didn't look. So what I'm not saying this tastes better punch it when I'm gonna kiss just gimme without been Been been. Benito publicly. We've just heard a clip from the opening of one of the televised debates between party leaders, supposedly one of the highlights of this election campaign in how did the party leaders do? Well, they desperately fought to track to the twenty five percent or more of Spanish voters who are still undecided. They were very aggressive polarized dates with the right and left wing candidates bathing themselves in completely opposite colors patriot sons as the socialist prime minister remarked wryly that what TV view as well. Witnessing was a primary of the right wing parties in which they were competing to say the most monstrous things was he being a bit unfair. No, I think he's not justified in saying that he was called the enemy of Spain close friend of those who inch to tear the country apart person who preferred hands bathed in blood too. Into an agreement with moderate forces in reference to the terrorists who tact Spanish cities during the eighties and nineties. It's probably fair to say as well that much of the action in this campaign has been between the three right wing policies. So we're talking about fielded on those the liberal Fazli. Antique Catalan independence party the People's Party, which is the mainstream center-right and vox this insurgent ultra nationalist party. Yes. The arrival of ox is really pulled the other two parties to the right? Is there fearful of losing voters to a party that without any embarrassment? As called for a return to Spanish tradition that recentralization of the state a clamp down on immigration and other populist, nationalist issues that have attracted a lot of people angered by the attempt to session in Catalonia, and who are looking for a home. After the premiership of money her Hoi who is seen as sort of gray and unwilling to attack the secession of the separatist problem in Catalunia head on. And this has been a bit of a gift to Mr. Sanchez, ROY. He's been able to sort of sit back and watches these opponents sort of fight it out. Ironic that as he's moved left to peel off voters from the anti-establishment most, partly he still manages to appear to be the most centrist and moderate of all the politicians because of the parties of the right have moved so far to the right to try to capture that nationalist populist vote. And keep us a sense of how what the polls are telling us about the state of play off to voting on Sunday. Well, the polls point to a very difficult government formation. Scientists is socialist parties palling around thirty percent the traditional center, right? People's Party around twenty sea levels around fifteen, but it must around thirteen or fourteen and vox around eleven and if you put together either left or right block, neither of them adds up to a parliamentary majority which suggests that either Mr. Sanchez will have to make some sort of deal with catalog nationals parties again, which is. In a sense. What led to the collapse of last government? When those parties abandoned him because he would not negotiate a referendum on independence for Catalonia or some sort of cross party agreement between Mr. Sanchez's socialist the party, which has said repeatedly that it will not for a collision with him. But which in the past has supported him and could at some level say we're surrendering our veto of Mr. Sanchez new order to save Spain from an agreement with the separatist that could break apart the country. Whatever happens, it's most likely to be very difficult negotiations into appears that neither the three parties in the right or the two parties in the left will add up to majority and if Mr. Sanchez emerges from this election as the relative at least winner Pablo Casado, the leader of the PP the center right t the big loser. It really depends how the election turns out pollsters don't really know how much effect vox will have they're saying. They're polling around. Eleven percent. But they said that they were pulling around three or four percent in recent regional elections and undo and they came out with ten eleven percent there. The question is whether there's a lot of undeclared, vox supporters who say they will vote for the People's Party, if vox shoots up in the polls and Paseo comes close to

"Welcome back is the Ben Shapiro show. So in the last couple of weeks Israel, held its prime ministerial election. It's actually just a general election. And then whoever leads the biggest party, then generally has a chance to make a coalition. If there are a number of like minded parties who are in that coalition. Well, the big winner, of course, was Benjamin Netanyahu. Joining us on the line to talk about the state of Israel government. Plus, the Trump peace plan is hurricane and he's the senior diplomatic correspondent for the Jerusalem Post. He's been covering his early prime ministers for the last nearly two decades her thanks so much for joining the Ben Shapiro show. Thank you. So what is the latest on Netanyahu forming a government what what is the what's the process look like and how soon will that government before? I mean it tonight the president formerly in gave Netanyahu authority to form together the way workers after the elections each party has recommend who they wanna to the prime minister formality Netanyahu got fifty five of the hundred twenty sixty five hundred twenty members to recommend him. So tonight. It all started the whole negotiation coalition negotiations. Big Nancy now, obviously, there's been a lot of upset around the world, particularly on the left that Netanyahu's win this gestion that Israel has somehow moved further to the right than it originally was but the truth is that for people who follow Israeli politics. Knitting victory was a little bit less of surprise. I think that it appeared to be from outside and the notion that the blue and white party, which was his chief opposition in this election was widely left wing party. I'm not sure where that came from. Why is it that Israel's public seems to have moved away from the hard left labor party when we six seats in this particular election? Shave to say that since September two thousand start of the second intifada Israel. These public was mugged by reality. I mean, they went to the process with high hopes, then you got hit and number two thousand again with his five years of mind numbing terrorism that affected about everybody here. Somehow it left it trauma. The country has not yet emerged from. I think the story you're gonna back on the second defied into two thousand watershed moment in history, it moved to the country that trauma was compounded by another that we'd be would all in Gaza in two thousand five under premise idle own at that time, if something was we'll bring peace at least you've been quiet. What have brought was HAMAs console of Java and the worst terror in the south of the country ever put those two things together, and you've got a country that he just like I said, it'd be mugged by reality. That just hasn't seemed to go away if you're living with. Within a ten mile radius of guys, you're really worried that Iraq. It could come crashing into your kids living our bedroom. If you're induced you're still worried about about drive-by shooting by stabbing attacks Tel-Aviv for goodness sakes. You've got this now image in mind of rockets coming into your city. So so, that's what's changed. The the interesting coming to accommodation with the Palestinian has it lessened. But reality is just change the way everybody thinks it's possible. Those the interesting coming to an accommodation. There's been a lot of talk in the Trump administration about the release of some sort of proposed peace framework. It's hard to imagine. How that peace framework works number one because the people that Israel would presumably have to negotiate with aren't terror leaders. But do you have any indicators herb about what exactly that from peace deal would look like or how realistic anything like that would be? Been kicked this thing. Pretty pretty well under wraps. Nobody really had good idea. What it will look like, I think one thing we know for, sir. It's not that looked like what came before? I think the Trump team has come to the conclusion that after banging their head on the wall for twenty five years and nothing moving it's time for five different approach. So I think they're trying to different approach. I wanna be. I mean, they're asking for a far bigger buy in from the air countries in the region to give economic assistance and give economical two thousand Finian's. I don't think that you know, the parameters that we've all had mine up until now saying without JAL to the sixty seven lines Tim stage without Kaplan juiston. Nothing will work. I don't think that's going to be these parameters. I think certainly I don't think the Trump team is naive a match. Sure that they really think that this thing is going to bring peace, but I do think that was trying to shut down a new market. Because since two thousand the last time you've had the market for peace, which was Clinton parameters allies happen in Israel within defied, and but the draw from Gaza and in the region with Arab spring and whatnot. So a lot of change. And I have I have a feeling that this plan will will will reflect those changes, these rallies, obviously become a lot more realistic as you mentioned about the prospect of some sort of comprehensive peace settlement. And obviously, the Trump administration seems to have bought into that more accurate view of reality. The political left in Europe in the United States. However, has not what do you make of the rise of of the anti semitic wing of the Democratic Party here in the United States from from sitting in Israel as well as the rise of anti-semitism across Europe. Look, I think I think they're I think to a certain degree there different phenomena. But it's the same in the progressive Israel has problems of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. That's that's no secret. The thirty Sanders wing of the Democratic Party is has got a big big problem with I take the assumption. There is that if Israel would just do more if it'll just give up more if you'll just make a bigger concessions than it would be peace. These many publishers doesn't doesn't buy that anymore because Israel has given up landed has given up settlements. And then like, I said it hasn't left peace. Brought the worst we've ever faced. So so the question, how do you how do you change that? Can you change that? I think there has to be a better effort on the part of his Yale to to make inroads with the progressive wing of the Democratic Party. I think we all have to be careful of painting the whole Democratic Party with the same brush. I mean, all not from the from the. Bernie Sanders wing and also think we have to be realistic. I mean, you know, things change times of change, and we might not be able to convince them, but we have to get our you have to get point across in Europe in Europe. I think it's a different different kennel wax. I think in in Europe, you have you have this left wing sense that Israel is everything that they're allergic to like they're learning to nationalism because of what happened with this with two wars, they're allergic to religion and Israel is nationals. I ended mass movement based around religion. So so it's gonna be tough to convince anybody there of that as well. But when you see even with that then is that that Israel's relations with the world has never been better. And it's not because the world is necessarily follow of love with us all of sudden. But it's thank God, we have things that the world needs. And they want to deal with them. Speaking of the world's needs. I do want to mention this. Story that is now cropping up many on the left and some of the moderate right very upset because Omar Guti who's the Palestinian leader of the BS movement who lives in Israel and has been barred entry to the United States there. Bunch of folks the left, including Michelle Goldberg, whose pretty anti Israel writing in the New York Times suggesting that it is some form of censorship not to allow Omar Barghouti into the United States. He obviously is the leader of the BS movement. What do you make of the move to block Barghuti from visiting the United States, and what do people need to know about Barghuti the movement? They don't already know. First of all I'm decision to keep by by from visiting wash. What it was an American decision. Not an Israeli. I mean, he did not get an American visa, it's Washington. The dishes, vases are not not not America. I mean that Israel. I think you know, Guti is portrayed as kind of this this Martin Luther King nine violent type of guy. But what he proposes is essentially an end to the juice state. It's just through you know, it's to a bit more benign means other not completely benign means because he has come out and advocate or violent resistance as well. You know, it's like if somebody wants said, you know, Rosa Parks sat at the back of the bus. You didn't try to blow up the bus? And here are the centers that you know, the violent was just terrorism has never never been been been rejected by by the Palestinians. And by even known who advocate, the DS BBS's. Final goal is not the you know, the removal of settlements in the West Bank. It's removing of. Of Israel's Jewish state believes that something that Israel's just not gonna sit by and allow you don't happen. Hurricane in senior diplomat correspondent for the Jerusalem Post as much for spending some time with us, really. Appreciate your insight. Pleasure. Thank you coming up in just a second. We'll talk about the Democratic Party which maintains that it has no anti-semitism at all within it. Really?

"This morning. Benjamin netanyahu. It looks like we'll win a fifth historic term in office is Lee cooed party now tying that of his challenger general Benny guns and for him tying is good enough a victory, and that's because this is a parliamentary system, and if we look at a map his right wing parties, which are his coalition partners. They pulled and performed very well, and he really has the only past putting together a ruling majority. It's unlikely those parties will defect and doing guns on the left party on the left wing party. How divide it is Israel when it comes to this election, so close I mean, the margin seem very very close. Anyway, from what we read. It was very divided on the leadership of Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, some see him as a corrupt politician who kind of tacked Israel democracy to clear his name went after the police. He went after the judiciary is, you know, there may be real charges against him in the coming months made a fissile of but others defend him. And he's the only person who can really lead Israel on the international stage and protect Israel from Iran. But what does election shows is that many of the electorate are continuing to move to the right? And this is a trend we've seen over the last ten years because in the end there are more right wing parties that have the electoral threshold that will enter the parliament. And they are the ones that will came up Netanyahu. There are more of them than left wing parties for the West Bank, Israeli Palestinian conflict and some of those issues. I don't think it bodes very well for the prospect of peace between Israelis and Palestinians. How just a couple of days before the election to annex do settlements in the West Bank? It's unclear if that was just a ploy to get out his base or if he really intends on doing that he did say, you would try to enlist the help of President Trump in those annexation plans thing that even you know, he had accomplished annex say the word annexation, but he had accomplished something akin to that on the Golan Heights with President Trump recognizing that also before the election. We're gonna have to see what comes out of the president's US peace plan. It will likely be unveiled in a couple of months. But there is a a lot of pessimism here that there will be a breakthrough not only because Netanyahu seems so reluctant to really engage in a real peace process. But because the Palestinians also.

"How does this? This whole idea of portraying an opposition is socialist in the United States play into this framework. Well, I think it's a cheap shot. It's in the United States uniquely offensive label in most of Europe, you're called the socialist, people Trump their shoulders and say, yeah. So. Partisan have called themselves socialists throughout European history and function perfectly willing democracies and one elections and all that. So I think you know, this is uniquely American phenomenon. And if we look at sort of. Both the behavior and the ideology of parties and compare them internationally the American Republican party is almost unique among others sort of right of center parties in its inability to come to terms with the need for some kind of a social safety net every place else. Yeah. The cushion Democrats in Germany, the Christian Democrats in Italy every place else, you know, the conservative party for heaven's sake. Which campaigned for Brexit on the strength of protecting the national health service every place else center, right and right wing parties. Have not only made their peace with the welfare state, but actively seek to protect it and to make sure they deliver it's supposed to it's only states that the center right party. The main right wing party is just you know. No. Allergic to the idea of safety. Nets of redistribution of doing. Regulation of all the things that have been widely accepted by other center right parties in the world. You know who thought that tonight when you came out we would be talking about capitalism. So. Marxism in many ways. But you know, whenever we do these programs at the World Affairs Council invariably, we talk about the biggest. Elephant in the room, which is or the biggest players on the global stage, which are China and Russia outside of the United States. And obviously, many of these features that we've talked about are ones that these countries are modeling themselves on they're looking to Russia and China for leadership, and in fact, China and Russian often are often trying to export this model to these other countries because we never fail to talk about China and Russian maybe we can we can talk about their the unique features of their systems, and how they are if in fact, they are trying to export those features. Okay. I think both would like to have more countries like them. But in the same way that the polish authoritarians are half competent as the Hungarian the Russians are half as competent as they try knees. These were they Chinese so doing with belt and road with extensive economic investment with foreign aid that doesn't come up democratic strings with some here. The projection of soft power through the computers institutes and whatnot is to pursue a much more coherent and much more subtle strategy of expanding its influence Russia. Meanwhile, isn't devoting itself to funding right wing parties in Europe. Marine Le Pen, for example, got nine million euro loan with no repayment date straight from Putin. We just found out that the five star movement in Italy was also funded by Putin. So basically does things that when discovered look bad, and that in many ways of signal weakness rather than its strength. So the disinformation campaigns the twelfth farm the internet research agency the funding of right wing parties. And so on these these are not sort of, you know, part of some kind of a broader architecture that broadcasts long-term influence, these are sort of, you know, this is what this is. A horse flight does raise buzzes around and attacks. It can it does what it can. But a fundamentally doesn't have the power to actually bring down democracy in quite the same way that the Chinese model can which is much more expensive. It's much more coherent. It's much more wealth out. And I think there's going to be much more potential for long term influence then with Russia. Yeah. So. Look, I think China is kind of the mall, I would reverse it. Although I don't disagree with what I don't disagree with. What honest said I think they are trying to expand their influence with countries. It's very clear in Africa and Latin America, very prominent. I think every would be dictator in the world looks at China and says this is the formula for Madeira annuity. That's consistent with a dictatorship with consistent with me. Staying in power. That was always the problem. You could be a dictator, but you couldn't get the, hyper modern high-tech thing because you would lose control. And so somehow China's doing this. So all the dictators are looking and saying how can we figure out how to do this? I'm not sure China with its one point one billion people is a model for places like Zimbabwe poor countries. It isn't clear that other dictators can actually do what the Chinese are doing. But I think they're definitely seen as an alternative model, and they portray themselves as a alternative model a kind of a state capital. You know, it's like a state capitalist model. As far as them being. You know, I don't think either China neither China nor Russia for the regular people. In other countries are are even remotely attractive as models particularly Russia, which is basically just an authoritarian regime, but even China because China's mercantile country China is selling an idea as bad as the Soviet Union was back in the day. It was selling the idea of equality, and this is why millions of people all over the world. An end to exploitation. Now, it might have been overblown and difficult to and not the reality. But this was an idea that people bought into by the millions in the twentieth century. And this like this ideology was like the basis of competition. You have a worldwide competition for influence today. China doesn't have an idea. It's a mercantile society. That's buying influence. Just like Russia. It's not there's no idea that appeals to ordinary people from either of these countries, right, but their money, certainly appeals appeals. But this is as long as the money keeps going, but then. Won the money stops, right? Right. Well, so does the support right? Are there? There are parts of the world that maybe are not experiencing this type of rising nationalism. Eroding democratic I had this from a colleague of ours. Corey Shawki saying that when you look at Latin America, there's actually a better story to tell. Is that the case or was she suggest otherwise? There's a different story to tell in the following sense. That what we see in Latin America is a very different popular reaction and very different form of populism. So we don't see this is sort of right wing native, isn't that we see all across western Europe, taking root NBC wanting to exclude certain groups to marginalize others, very narrow definition of who the people are what we see in Latin America. And that's traditionally been the case is much more left wing sort of populism which is much more redistributive, and has a much broader nation notion of who the people are excluding it's a much more inclusive set of populist movements and some of their commitment to democracy is questionable certainly known places like Bolivia Ecuador Venezuela things have not always ended. Well, but these are the kind of nativist movements that want to exclude groups from the body politic. That's interesting. That's a that's a huge difference between Latin America and Europe. For example. I would totally agree with that. It's part because the populations themselves are very diverse to begin with. There are no native. When Europe you have the native white people, and then you have immigrants, but in Latin America in some sense. Everybody's an immigrant, and you have indigenous people, so they have a different historical background. I will say that Bolsonaro is kind of in Brazil is more on the Trumpian mode and also in the Philippines. They have a similar kind of democratically elected person. But. Yes. I would agree with the claim that a Latin America is is doing better, you know, with democracy right now than other places. Right. So we'll see a I we're recording this, and I think it's in part because the perception is that democracy is more responsive to the people in those countries. So it can deliver in this. Well, it's responsive to people's preferences in a way that I think people in Europe, and certainly in the US feel that that the government is less responsive to people's needs. In other words that the elite decides things over and above what people actually want. That's the perception actually thinks critical think what's what's really driven populism in Europe. For example, is this notion that the elites are totally corrupt and unresponsive to the people. In fact, that's the main claim that populists makes rate is there are these horrible leads. And when you look at for example in eastern Europe, what's been happening. I. There was a consensus around the necessity for market reforms, then there was the consensus among elites necessity to join NATO and to join the UPN union in western Europe. You have this general notion that the elites have sold out. And rather than representing the people, basically, do whatever the tells them to do and that you know, you can curse rather than national governments actually govern their countries. And I think there's a profound sense of frustration with democratic leaders and representatives that don't actually respond or seem to care about their photos and their supporters in Latin America, that's just not the case. It's not a question of delivering on promises as much as it is much more of a sense of being listened to and actually being responded to rather than just being talked over. And so the capitalize on the sense of frustration of lack of representation, and basically say and do the things that the elites won't including questioning democracy questioning the rights of immigrants and so on. Let's see has more genuine authentic than what the elites have been delivering so far, right. And just with regarding immigration. I mean, these countries are not immigrants societies they're not used to having immigrants. I mean, the EU is like a thousand two thousand in Poland in one thousand in Hungary, or something a very small number of people, but they've capitalized very cleverly on this Viktor orb on the prime minister of Hungary cynical as he is actually did he was the first one to build walls to keep immigrants out. He was the leader of the wall builders, and ultimately quietly sotto voce let in immigrants. Yes. In a deal, but it didn't didn't publicize it. But ultimately let it if it was never about. Leading several hundred people in it was all about using this in order to increase his own position. And it's also writing temporary issue. I mean one that is fed by these wars in the Middle East that is actually putting a lot of pressure. I mentioned this because I used to live in Germany in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight I remember being helmet Chancellor Helmut Kohl's office and him saying visit risen kind of. I'm vonda. We're not an immigrant nation. And he would be outraged by the idea that there would be immigrants and that would move and live permanently in Germany. So it is an evolutionary process one fed by the current moment. And I think the interesting aspect of this is that the current wave of immigration is also different from previous ways you had basically immigrant workers coming in bringing over their families establishing their own family life and whatnot. The big fear of about immigrants is the image. We have our families of refugees making this incredibly perilous journey across the Mediterranean. The stable thing for the populace to point out is that seventy five percent of the immigrants are young single men. And what's left, of course, in some cases, have been some absolutely vicious newspaper articles and images that this basically means that they will marry are women they will rape by women. They were attack are women. Right. And they will servino change the demographic profile of our nations..

Shortly after the announcement Netanyahu went on air in primetime and blasted the accusations saying they weren't attempt by the left and the media to put pressure on the attorney general to issue an indictment at any cost. He also said the timing of the announcement was unfair since his hearing where he can present his side of the case or happen. Until after the elections Netanyahu faces a very tough fight in these elections as he seeks a fifth term in office. His Likud party is behind in the polls show he still has the support of the right wing parties crucial chances of winning.

"Twenty minutes before eight o'clock, David Rubin is the former mayor of Shiloh Israel, author of that great new book, Trump and the Jews omit. Ruben welcome back to the show, sir. Thank you. Yes, sir. Are you in Israel as we speak? Yes. I'm speaking to Jerusalem. I tell you. I'm I'm due for a trip there. I may take off with the Dennis Prager and Mike Gallagher. Maybe we could have lunch over there. One day. Mr mayor. Would be very nice. So give us the breakdown. If you would Ruben about prime minister Netanyahu, maybe indicted today is this a two quaint phrase a witch hunt. What's going on in Israel? Well, I'll tell you. I I don't think it's a it's a witch hunt. But they're witches that a hunting. In other words. There may be some legitimacy to these charges and. They are alleged charges. And if there if it's true. And they can be proven then it's very problematic on the other hand there. There are those out to get Netanyahu just like throughout to get President Trump and for those on the left. It is a witch hunt for those on the left is out to get him. No matter what it doesn't matter. What he does or or or when he did it. But what would Benjamin Netanyahu be invited for, sir? Well, there is what I'll I'll pick one is probably the main charge most serious charge, which is for bribery in which the the attorney general is saying, admittedly. He hasn't made the announcement get it's gonna be a couple of hours, but the charges. That the basic telecommunications company, which is the main to- communications company in Israel. That also owns a new site. A big big news site called called Walla. And Netanyahu work that deal with them. Whereby he would pass some favorable legislation. Four. Though, it would help the basic telecommunications company in return for that would be given favorable lose coverage on their website. I understand his motivation. If if this is real I understand is what the vision because he gets terrible news coverage from the media. It's almost as bad as Trump. Yeah. The media is is to the left for the most part. They're out to get him. And after him every day. It doesn't matter if he puts his socks on the wrong way. He's going to get blessed in the media. But the fact is that it if this charge is is real. And if he's found guilty of it could be a very serious thing isn't the timing of this a little suspect seeing that he's in the midst of a reelection campaign, sir. Well, the the attorney general is is nothing else. Former director general. He he he has good relationships with Netanyahu. What's that? I believe he's a man of integrity. And and he feels fair to the public that that information was was going to be revealed. Anyhow. Then it's fair to do it before the elections. However, having said that I think it's important to point out that it might not affect the elections in any way, they might have some impact. And maybe some people would not vote for Netanyahu. If they feel that he is under indictment on the other hand. He doesn't have to resign. According to Israel law doesn't have to resign. Just because they may soon be indictment against them. And a lot of Israeli public does recognize that the media's out together him, and he may even gone to more support in a sense because they realized that the media is right? Right. Right. So if the BB is indicted, he would still be able to Stanford reelection collect correct? Oh, absolutely. And and also the indictment today is only the announcement in type of an impending Dighton after that has to be a hearing. So they wouldn't actually be indictment until after the elections. And the it's also important to remember that Israel is very much split left. And right so and there are several parties to the right of Netanyahu several parties to the left of Benny Ganz who is his name opponents on the left. So it's very possible that some people who who would say, okay, I'm not gonna vote for Netanyahu now because he's under indictment that that they're much more likely to vote for a party to the right of Netanyahu more conservative parties, which which would still increase coalition because they're the ones that he's more likely to form a coalition with you know, as an American who has a at dinner with with many many others, by the way with Benjamin Netanyahu. I just took it immediately immediate liking to this, man. I don't know because he was a misdemeanor. You know? He's I always use the word Americanized because he just really knows this country America better than most a leaders from other countries. So I like BB Netanyahu and it looks like hunt. But what's the feeling in Israel? I mean, are they are they really leaning toward supporting BB, or is it going the other way? Because like we're totally split in America. Is that pretty much the same way in Israel. Well, what Switzerland split in Israel as well. The according to the latest polls the left wing party. What's called the blue and white party, which is the? The most recent left wing incarnation of the labor, the old labor party in Israel. There are predicted to get more votes than the Likud, which is Netanyahu's right right of center party. However when you look at the of the potential right of center coalition, and then you look at the potential left-of-centre coalition. The right upset, listen gets more votes. And we'd have more businesses rarely Knesset Israeli parliament. If you were to predict that election would turn out David Ruben with Joe Piscopo, former mayor of Shiloh Israel. What would you what would you predict at this point, Mr Mayor? Well, at this point would be that that the right wing is going to be, and I I don't see anyone who was going to who who is planning on voting for the Likud or any of the parties to the right of the Likud. To change their votes and vote to the left. I just don't see that happening. So it could be we could they lose a seat or two from this. But the but the right wing most rightly the right of center parties would not lose their strength and in which case. Netanyahu is still likely to be the next prime minister of Israel, and David Rubin. David Ruben, by the way, gotta check out the book Trump and the Jews yesterday, Mr Mayor Jared Kushner met with the Saudi Crown prince he recently met with the Turkish president. How was the Kushner peace plan progressing at this point, sir? Not talking to. Let's about it. Kushner revealed a little bit. A couple of days ago where he said that. Part of the peace plan is going to have to do with borders and defining the borders of Israel. I've a bit of a problem that after Trump's spinning a great presidents that Israel, and he did so much so much. To strengthen the relationship between the United States and Israel so far. But if he's planning in this peace plan to reach the borders of Israel, and and possibly even create a Palestinian state with just which would just be another house styles Muslim state terrorists as a sack within the biblical heartland of Israel. I think that would be a serious serious mistake. I would advise President Trump not to go that route because it's destined for failure. And in Israel. They worried about anti-semites an anti Israel politicians now being elected to the United States house of representatives, sir. Is there a concern? Yeah. That is a very big problem. The the especially those. Two new. Muslim congresswoman for Minnesota. And Michigan who have been in office a couple of months now, and they're they're already spewing anti anti-semitic hatred. Not just against Israel. General. It's it's incredible. It's like the protocols of the elders of Zion. You know that old old antisemitic? Yeah. Tweet those put out and less sensory by just it's incredible. And and you know, I I wouldn't believe it if I if I didn't know that it's yeah. Yeah. With the far left. And it's a terrible terrible thing. David rubin. Former mayor of shallow Israel. You. Gotta check out the book Trump and the Jews and the dead misdemeanor. Always great talking with you. Please stay in touch and keep us posted. Would you do that, sir? Thank you. We'll do. Yes, sir. Thank you, David Reuben. I right there. Ten minutes before seven fifty one right now about ten minutes before eight o'clock on am970theansweRcom always looking out for you the calls..

"Three other one rhetoric and get texts today. But we'll straighten that out. Later on. But welcome to the show. Expecting? This is a show where we talk about politics for the next hour. All this latest hottest in the news today going on and expecting a guest from the Republican state committee. Steve Aylward to be calling in soon. Hopefully, we're going to be talking about the latest changes in the state party. The state party has elected Republican party has elected a new chairman and. Much more on the conservative side. Then they had before with the Kristen Hughes. Who is more of a moderate, Charlie? Charlie. Baker mold new chairman is war in the conservative, mold and. It'll be interesting to see really what kind of changes they have with lions in there. In in the new chairman spot because he's he's been been more of a sort of an avid kind of Donald Trump supporter. More along the lines of Geoff Diehl type person and. It'll be interesting to see if they institute some changes, they they've already released the first they plan to be more aggressive. I believe in recruiting. People to the party and they've already had a new. Statement that went out recently saying they plan to have a new plan to inch to recruit more Republican party members from the cities from urban areas, which will be interesting because they're sorely lacking. In that regard. You don't see too many Republicans in the city of Boston. That's for sure. So that's gonna be a tough challenge to. To to do that. But it'll be interesting to see if they're able to do that. We call it up here because it was an interesting plan that they have to. To is the state. Smashed chairman. Jim Lyons announces new initiative to re-engage the commonwealth's urban communities. They announced this on MLK day. To engage. The Commonwealth urban communities. State committee member Rachel camp of Boston has agreed to lead this initiative. One of the few Republicans in the city of Boston lonely position there. Quote, I ran for chair to unite and build the Republican party in Massachusetts and re engaging. Our urban communities is vital to accomplishing that goal. Chairman lion says as we celebrate Martin Luther King junior and his legacy. It's important for our party to recognize the importance of reaching out, including all people in our mission. Highlights of the initiative will include elevating GOP outreach to the Commonwealth urban communities form a subcommittee activity to a fundamental core activity of the party targeted demographics for outreach will include. But not limited to people of color millennials, existing Republicans who may feel abandoned the lentils, let's let's let's recruit millennials to the Republican party. Good luck with that one. Not you might might have a little luck there. But pretty pretty. Few and far between their millennials who are be willing to embrace the Republican party. Cheers activities. A message will be welcoming to all and will be geared towards re-energizing those urban communities. They're going to be conducting listening sessions across the state engaging with Republican activists and those interested parties to develop a refined approach for working with each of the Commonwealth cities and calling for unity within the party and to have activists convene around the Republican party's core principles. This seem of unity is big with Jim lines. The new chairman. He is determined to unify the moderate wings of the party and the conservative wings of the party because in the past. There's been a deep divide there in the Repub state Republican party where the conservative activists have felt left out of the party and. During the Charlie Baker administration, especially in the hell at the helm of Kirsten Hughes would the former chairperson of the party, they felt left out. My favorite story is stories of from the Republican convention of twenty sixteen the Republican national convention in Cleveland, Cleveland, I think. Where basically they were the conservatives would go to one part of the room and the moderates. Under the Baker wing party leadership would go to another another part of the room, and they really wouldn't mingle too much together. They would be totally separate and. They would not be. There was no cohesion one. What forces conservative would go to a party say Trump victory party or some kind of Trump party Kirsten Hughes in the moderates wouldn't have nothing to do with that. They would go to. A party for say, John casick or somebody like that. So. They wouldn't mingle too much. So it's gonna be a big challenge for Jim lines. The new chair to really unite both sides of the party. I don't think the moderates necessarily want anything to do with some of the conservatives on the party, and they're afraid they're deathly afraid of being linked to President Trump. And there's a big divide. Dare President Trump, of course, is big divide in the party those who support them and those who don't support them. There's really no middle ground there as far as I can tell in the state party. So they've got four they've got to be able to welcome. Somehow moderates in the party to feeling comfortable that they're going to be in the conserved that they're going to be walking by this new conservative wing of the party, the leadership of the party. We're hoping to talk to Steve Aylward, we're gonna I'm gonna take a quick break actually reach out to see if we can talk to him what we right back with more about and feld..

The seat of Liberal Democrats in state of Texas tell you about that, obviously, it's a big speech that I have you about it. It's not it's not open to the public. Correct. Allen. When I say Allen, you know, it's a very serious question. So my friends. You know, I believe in clarity over agreement. So now, we have no agreement, but you should have clarity. The left wing party. Believes that this is all a phony crisis. Forty crisis. Being an oxymoron in other words. It's not a crisis. It's just phony hysteria. The people who live on hysteria or charging the Republicans with hysteria. We have a existential crises constantly. The terrible crisis in the country of children being called boys and girls of toxic masculinity. American psychological association. Another heard of cowards as now is infected the sciences with the pediatricians all over this issue. With regard to. Oh, no. That's there. The pediatrician just with regard to the male female issue. And the psychologists are with regard to masculinity. Masculinity leads to rape. Well, women. You have. You really don't have an ally in the American psychological association as you will find when you start dating more and more feminized men. Good luck. Just what the country needs at this time. The masculine is males. Remember, whatever the left touches it poisons and that holds true for the border. A war won't work. A war. Awal is immoral. People make these make these assertions, but they make these assertions with no with no basis. They don't provide any argument for it. Why is it immoral? To prevent people who shouldn't be coming into the country because they're coming in legally. And they're coming in numbers that the country will not be able to sustain socially or economically in the long run. Why is that immoral? Is it immoral for any home to build the wall is America our home? What is the difference between America and your home? These would be fair questions to pose. So what what does the press the press, of course, which is an arm of the Democratic Party. The Democrats don't have to say anything they could rely on the newspapers and magazines and websites. And of course that works. They really have nothing. They don't have to. They don't need a PR department. They have a PR department. The editors of the Washington Post New York Times, the LA times NBC ABC, CBS, PBS, NPR, etc. There is no reason. It's a waste of money for the Democratic Party to have a PR person. So what does the press concentrate on who will win the battle of the shutdown of the government? The question of how does how does it miracle? Win doesn't really get raised. Does America win by not having a wall? It will be a better society as a result the left says. Yes, but they don't provide any reason for why. There was a line that gave it away last night. Envy. Pelosi Schumer statement. There was a line that truly gave it away. Well, I have the text in front of me. So I should really give I won't paraphrase. Let's see here. Yes. This is the the almost the very last words that Senator Schumer spoke, the symbol of America should be the statue of liberty. Not a thirty foot wall. Our belief is we protect the statue of liberty by building a thirty foot. Call. Because the people who come into this country are not believers in liberty. They are believers in larger and larger state bike. They fled. That's all they're used to. There was no concept in Latin America limited government. There is no concept outside of the United States of limited government. It's humid cly American ideal and achievement. That more than half of the present generation does not believe in it. Due to the fact that they were either raised by parents who don't believe in it. Or braced by parents who do believe in it. But who didn't raise their children with that belief? It is very common for people who hold traditional American values to have failed in conveying them to the next generation. That's what happened with the baby boomers the children of the greatest generation. They failed to convey those values. So it's hard to imagine. How the president will win this because over time with the constant stories of hardship that the media will play. They don't play for you. The hardship of people affected by vast numbers of illegal immigrants, and therefore not having jobs. You don't see any of those stories you see the stories of middle class folks who haven't gotten their check from the government and have had to borrow from relatives or not been able to bake a house payments, or what have you? And by the way, I feel for these people. They did nothing wrong. I understand that. But you know, I have a slightly less sympathy for government workers in this regard. They would never supposed to be allowed to strike. So if you if you are going to strike the government could sometimes strike too. Why are you the only ones allowed to strike? The government is on strike as it were federal workers shouldn't have been on strike is the worst thing that John F Kennedy did in office. Was allow federal workers government workers to unionize and strike. Why not it's more democratic votes? And the result has been of course, that these unions are massive. Functionaries of the Democratic Party. Because the more. Symbiotic relationship. The more government workers the more democratic votes. The more Democrats in office, the more money, we get and the more people are hired. Who was it? Who said the moment. You can pay for a vote or something like that democracy starts to fade as an ideal man. That's what that's what the left does the left pays for votes. One eight seven seven six eight seven seven two four three triple seven six the symbol of the country will be a warm not the statue of liberty. Why does he say that about anything else the symbol of this country will be a marine with a? With a machine gun. With an automatic weapon could say that about anything that has that isn't gentle. Symbol of this country to mow many of the people who come here is not the statue of liberty. It is a picture of receiving in the mail. A check. I don't blame these people at all. But I don't, but let's not fool ourselves that the reason that vast numbers of people are coming here is liberty some come for the liberty. And we want them badly. But that's not. That's not the earning look half the country born near doesn't yearn for liberty. The left doesn't work for liberty earns for power appearance, free quality. For people who. Yes. Well, let's an interesting question..
