"The situation in one thousand nine hundred ninety s germany was dire. the country had lost world war one. Their economy was tatters.

Finding A Cure For Hangovers
"Everyone, it's Martin from twenty minute fitness. I'm here in San Francisco and I'm connected with season Lee founder of more laps Could you please do to yourself and Tello our audience? WHAT MORE ABSENCE? All about? Yeah. I Li- Martin having me. Yeah. Little background about myself. I was born in Korea and immigration with my family to Canada when I was nine. So I grew up in Canada did all my school here under Grad and that moved To Central Cisco right after that where it began my career as a product manager at Facebook, a couple of years through lots of different asserted destroyed I ended up in L. A. starting two thousand seventeen to start what's more laps today am what has more labs do is essentially we're stupid you company on Consumer Goods Company that makes what we call science beck supplements that combat modern-day stressors that slow you down such as fatigue poor sleep quality. Hangovers. I. Mean we referred to our products says, life products you know things that can help you hack your life be more productive than just more joy out of it and yeah, I mean like one of your hero products has been morning recovery. Maybe we can start with that product and you can tell us what actual day stressors this product actually focuses on. Yeah I mean I think the sort of DOT gr no more labs and our mission definitely evolved from morning recovery, which was the first product and basis of our company in its early days although we a lot of months where this was sort of a fun side project before it stepped into A. FULLTIME and a company with a mission, but ultimately, morning recovery think of it as their a remedy for when you consume alcohol especially if you to consume too much alcohol. So we we have it's a holistic approach though it's not a single ingredient but the hero ingredient is flavonoids called out Dha, which is an acronym. Extracted from a plant known as doses, which is also known as on Oreo, Japanese, raising tree, and product that carry the is actually quite popular in Eastern Asian culture especially create Japan, and what's interesting here is that it's got properties a speed up the breakdown of what as hell to hide, which is a highly inflammatory biproduct alcohol that's created when we rate out in our liver and so ultimately when we consume any type of liquor beer wide, ultimately, it's alcohol that we needed to break down into a civic asset fled under body but before call acidic acid, it turns into height that's actually a byproduct as much more than alcohol itself, and so all the really doing is. Acting as a catalyst to help your body break on sort of faster than that you, you didn't have a morning recovery and so at its core at you know that sort of how it works right. So basically helps me to process alcohol much quicker or my liver by that I mean, of course, and then the next day I on much faster recovered and I don't half that sensation of well hangover which for many people can be quite a few different things from nausea rain faulk to exhaustion dizziness headache CETERA, right? That's right. Yeah. Arrive at that compound yes. Oh, you know initially I mentioned through a lot of serendipitous dirty. We got two more labs and so I think It's difficult to sort of describe how we found developed the product without going through the founding story. But I, mean ultimately over decades especially in places Korea Japan, there's actually a giant industry, but that's explicit known as hangover drinks as funny as that sounds just like how energy drink is massive north. America with hero brands such as red bull monster at everybody is very familiar with personal concept over there but replace energy drink with hangover drinks. Now why? Why is that? So I mean I think a lot of it is a cultural thing and I think there's two components to it. This is just my best my best guess what is scheduled to set to drink quite a bit and so a data sources such renominated a year year actually shows that Korea especially is the number one liquor consuming country in the world. So I'll give you a statistic that's kind of mind blowing fourteen shots of liquor per week per capita in south, Korea and number two Russia at seven, and so I think this is one of those things where when people talk about worker. Party without ever actually having been to places like. China Hong Kong Japan Korea people definitely drink a much frequently and I think maybe that's also the reason why and especially because they have such a cutthroat work environment where even though the throughout the week, not just weekends next day you you have to dress up and go to work
Early morning military parade held in North Korea for anniversary of ruling party
"Held a bit of a party, the 75th anniversary of the KP W, the Korean Workers Party or Communist Party of North Korea. And the Kim Jong UN used it as an opportunity to Unveil some, frankly, a surprising weapons systems, everything from a new, larger ICBM that has, as of this early this morning never been seen before. And there wasn't just one trembling down the parade way. There were several in a row. Right down to some small arms, then we didn't know the North Koreans. Had now not granted. You know, this isn't the entire North Korean army. But it's a thousands and thousands of troops representing the North Korean naval Infantry, which is they're Marines. Army border guards the whole thing off some first impressions and I'll send a link out to the unedited Fourcade 2.5 hour stream. But it's given us some insight into whether or not Corona has actually hit mirth Korea or not so thing one. Kim Jong UN is wearing a Western style suit and to be totally honest, he looks like he's lost weight. The reasoning behind that is because nobody would survive the encounter. If they came to him and said We're going to put you in a corset for 2.5 hours. Hear me out. We're gonna put you on a course it for 2.5 hours. Make you look thinner. Even his sister probably wouldn't wouldn't be down with that. It really looks like legit. He lost weight, which might give credence to did he have the cove ID four months ago or one of the five times this year he's been declared dead. Maybe there was some sickness. Besides the obvious thing, which is that he is a mother, love and fat ass on DH, the fattest man in North Korea. And I don't think That's even a debate and sew up there on the dais and the viewing stand. Of course, he had rows and rows and rows of the stone faced upper ranks of the North Korean People's Army. These are the guys in the khaki uniforms with the rose of medals. Festooning their uniform from their collarbone to their scrotum on the left side and the right side there, just so out there so awesome that they don't just wear one row one set of ribbons on there. Left chest. No, no, no, no. There that much better than everyone else on Earth. They need to rose. They should wear two suits. They're going to be wearing him down the back soon anyway, The skill with those guys is to not Crack and emotion. The only emotion acceptable is gushing tears, which on cue happened today. So Kim Jong un gave about 20 minutes speech before, he said, Unleash the amazing parade in Korea. So thing one nobody and there were about 100 luminaries, etcetera on the viewing, Stan. Nobody wearing a mask. Oh, and they were shoulder to shoulder on in the front row. Kim Jong un was flanked. Shoulder shoulder by his generals and then behind him in several rose not to. But as they say in certain military services were other senior ranking guys. No masks. No
North Korea holds military parade with missiles
"What appeared to be new strategic missiles and a military parade today. NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul on the event that marked the 75th anniversary of the founding of the ruling Workers.

The Latest On municipal Elections
"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott

Going old Turkey: a regional power spreads
"A decade ago, Turkey's Foreign Minister Audit of Attalou used to boast his country was on good terms with everyone police fantasia want. less confrontation, less tense attitude. Especially, in the region, he spoke at the Council on foreign, relations with the will of the principal. In. Two thousand three. Zero problems with our neighbors. And the made a huge progress. All, that now seems a distant memory Turkey is growing its international influence and not always with a light touch. The country has been backing Libya's government in its civil war. Last month. The Turkish Defence Minister landed in Libya to inspect his troops and opposition warlord warned them to get out or else. Turkey prompted an angry statement from Egypt last week by allegedly planning gas exploration and Egyptian waters. And yesterday Turkish officials railed against an American company for its dealings with ethnic Kurds in neighboring Syria. That Turkey believes to be terrorists. To some, all this adventurism is reminiscent of past chapter of the country's history when the Ottoman Empire ruled all of Syria and far beyond. Turkey, has been playing an especially prominent role in Syria since protests spread into a full blown civil war. Turkey has really become a meshed in Syria since the start of the our spring, the uprisings that took place in two thousand eleven across the Middle East it back. The Islamist. Movements that initially took to the streets and then took up arms. Nicholas Pelham is our Middle East correspondent. But as those fighters were false back towards its border, it's really stepped into try and protect its southern border, stop any more refugees coming into the country and to provide some sort of safe zone for the proteges, and it's also very nervous about the current state law that emotion the northeast of the country. It feels very threatened by the emergence of Kurdish power on the southern borders, and is it reasonable for Turkey to think that those Kurdish forces are really a threat historic? The have been links between the PK, the cuts down Workers Party, which has been waging a thirty five year a war for. Autonomy and separatism inside Turkey. Many of those fighters did flee sought refuge in Iraq and in Syria, and so Turkey is worried about what it sees very much kind of PKK influenced state emerging on its southern borders. So this year it's been launching pretty heavy attacks inside Iraq, it's been sending tanks across the border. It's established positions inside northern Iraq. It's been carrying out drone bombardments, such two hundred kilometers from its border in Saint, John More, Kurds all the way along its southern border inside Syria inside. Iraq see a new Turkish assault, which is pushing deep into their territory and not just unsettling. Kurdish aspirations for sovereignty in Iraq and Syria, and this is also unnerving Arab leaders as well. Who Turkey pushing deep into territory, which was part of the Turkish Republic predecessor. The Ottoman Empire, which ruled the Middle East centuries until its dissolution about a century ago, which is to say that Turkey is expanding its influence is doing this adventurism beyond Iraq and Syria all over the Middle East of the moment. There's a this year has seen the new intervention of the Turkish, Army. Libya. They came to the rescue of the besieged government of National Accord. In Tripoli, which has been fighting a civil war against a renegade general. Khalifa. After Turkish forces established at base on the borders of Tunisia, we're seeing it's frigates make a bid for control of looking coastline and even ward off French frigates. We're really seeing a substantive increase in Turkish. Power across the Middle East and it's not just happening in Liberia. It's happening in Gaza, which is an ally of Turkey. Turkish forces there have tried to help. Cut Break Its blockade by Saudi Arabia they're. A. Few hundred to a few thousand Turkish forces that are they're wasting more Turkish interested in Yemen civil war. We're seeing interest in a Sudanese port and actually Turkey's largest overseas basis in the point of Africa. So really this is a massive increase in Turkey spread across the middle, East and do you believe that the the the Ottoman history plays into that as a return to former glories? In some way? It's very much the in the rhetoric certainly saw Mr. Osman tropes at the at the height of the Arab spring wanted to appear to be the leader of the Muslim world. He was promoting his version of governance across the region hoping to clone the Turkish model across the Middle East. But since the collapse of Islamist movement since its as from power in Egypt and the retreat of many of its forces, he's really kind of played much more on Turkey's national interests. He's ally domestically with what had been his nationals opposition. He seems to be much more concerned on trying to maximize Turkey's economic claims in the. The Mediterranean this since much more about promoting Turkey's national interests than flying it systems colors. This is really an exercise in in hard power and trying to exploit the weakness of others, the retreat of Europe and America from the Middle East. The policies of many Arab governments, and try and push Turkey to fill what seems to be a vacuum of power across the Middle East, and so is that push to serve Turkey's national interests working is, is it benefiting from this from this expansionism? If you're trying to put together a balance sheet of profit balance sheet? Sheet Turkey has benefited from Khatri investment cutters, loans, and investments have helped prop up the Turkish lira. It may be that country's also hoping to fund part of its military costs in Libya Turkeys, keen to promote its companies when it comes to eventual reconstruction of war-torn Libya, which after all is energy rich state, and so long term, there may be benefits, his critics home highlight, the cost it's estimated that Turkish operations in Syria have cost anything up to about thirty billion dollars, and of course, there is a threat that you're going to see a major escalation. Escalation in the Middle East, which could embroil Turkey. It's not just Turkey is entering the middle, East enforce. It's also Russia. Many Arab states are trying to gain Russian support to push back Turkey, not just Syria Egypt the United Arab Emirates looking to Russian support in Libya, and Egypt is sending its tanks to the Libyan borders. The UN warned that the risk of a of a regional war focused on Libya and beyond that that risk was huge. So this is a massive gamble and it looks as if the stakes are going to be increasingly hyphen
Why has North Korea stopped talking to South Korea?
"We should probably acknowledge upfront. The North Korea throwing a massive tantrum about something or other is as shocking headlines. Go up there with Sun rises. The Democratic People's Republic is indeed readily imagine as a vast fortified Kat. It's missile launchers as angrily flung toys, its occupant, a child who's upbringing was rarely punctuated by the. None. So this week's announcement that north. Korea has abruptly severed all communications with South Korea may seem like no big deal. It may even be no big deal, and yes, these caveats are being inserted up the top, just in case North Korea just as abruptly decided to end it sulk while this explaining is still current. At issue? This time is the pretty long standing practice of defectors who have fled North Korea for. South Korea and activists sympathetic to them of drifting balloons across the inaccurately named demilitarized zone which separates the two countries. The balloons generally carry anti-regime messages, but also also born chocolate bars, US dollar notes and advertisements for the joys and benefits of treacherous, warm, mugging capitalist revisionism. She never. We have made a miniature version of the New Testament and we are sending these over by using balloons. Last year, we sent about sixty thousand copies disabled. We're going to send about seventy thousand copies. To. Don Those pudding recently that. To. In fairness to North Korea, which is not a phrase. One authors often. North Korea does have a case. If your neighbor continually floated blimps over your share fence, which scattered pamphlets declaring that you'll loan was tatty in your bird box was ugly. You'd likely scratch them off your Christmas card list as well. There's also the fact that until as recently as two thousand eighteen. South Korea operated immense banks of loudspeakers along the border which broadcast among other things deafening decibels of K pop into North Korea. In this specific context, the keeping of Kim Jong Hoon thumb off. The Big Red Button appears an active superhuman restraint. That aside, however North Korea has never been famous for its sense of proportion in much the same way that South Korea has never been famous for its non annoying pop music and Pyongyang's response to the balloon issue has been characteristically vituperative. Roden Sinmun the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the workers. Party of Korea and a journal which can be safely seemed to be accurately. Reflecting Pyongyang's thinking has called the balloon senders disgusting riffraff rubbish like Mongrel dogs and human scum has said that the tolerance of their behavior by South Korean authorities has aroused out dismay that one may have lost a few degrees of each and translation and menaced vote. showed them how much price they out to be forced to pay for hurting the holiest. And emotions of our people. There's yards more of this sort of stuff if you're a bit start for distraction. The practical implications of North Korea's latest strop as follows the twice daily calls to the Cross Board Liaison Office in the border city of case Song will cease. No more balling sniffling puppet of American imperial thuggery. How's IT hanging? The channels which allowed the military's of the two Koreas to communicate with each other will also be closed. These strategic upshot of all this from north. Korea's perspective is a little hard to glean. The balloon offensive is not new indeed has been going on for a while. North Korea is clearly choosing to make a thing of it, and as invariably the case with people prone to making a thing of things. If it wasn't this, it'd be something else. In this instance, the significant aspects may not be so much the what as the WHO, or whom whichever is correct, one of the signatures on the new no speaks policy. Was that of Kim Yo Jong increasingly prominent sister of Kim Jong UN, long thought of as a sort of executive assistant to her brother. These last few months have seen Commute Jong increasingly framed as a policymaker, and perhaps given the recurrent speculation about Kim Jong UN's health, they future leader North Korea may be trying to get North Koreans and the rest of the world used to her. And all this could be a pretty standard north. Korean play create.

We'll look at a couple of places which is and politicians make pretty unabashed best use of each other and at one country where a critical mass of the population seems to have grown tired of the arrangement. We'll stop in Brazil who's new president. Cheyenne Shaya Bolsonaro. One power on campaign heavily geared towards the least generous impulses Brazil's traditional Catholic believers and it's increasingly influential and rather less tolerant evangelical converts joining me to discuss. This is Antonio San Pyo research associate for conflict security and development at the International Institute for Strategic Agents Studies. Antonio I'll start with the very basics generally right now how religious a country is Brazil. Well Brazil is a very religious country. People's religion is quite important for their dentists. Mostly although obviously in the big urban centers in the southeast where people are wealthier and more connected to coacher and things this tends to be a bit smaller but resists to a very large Catholic country. There are a lot of. Catholics is by far the majority the Evangelical Population Elation Brazil has experienced tremendous growth in recent decades and it is estimated now that there are about thirty percent of the population identifying themselves as if Angelico but this population is divided in several different nations different churches but these population tends to be extremely conservative -servative in social terms in terms of controversial social freedom issues like gay marriage abortion and other issues. We'll come back to the van Jellicoe presently because they are a relatively recent arrival certainly in the Brazilian political sphere at least to the extent they now operate if we look at the Catholic Church in particular which is as you point out historically the root of Brazilian faith. How politically active or influential? Have they been. The Catholic. Search has been relatively modest or discreet in terms of politics in never officially endorses. Any candidates TASR assumed for itself a role as an actor and a supporting pillar in the more impoverished communities in Brazil Brazil as a country with large areas that are extremely poor and marginalized It is very important in urban areas. Where the poor resort to religion as an escape scape from the realities from the marginalization that the broader society and the broader economy regard them with so it is an important factor in social terms but politically medically? It hasn't had a lot of influence in Brazilian politics at least in this current era of democracy since the mid nineteen eighties. So is it fair to say. Even the evangelical more explicitly politically ambitious in the Catholic Church. was they want to take more direct role in Brazilian politics. Absolutely I believe and have been by far more active and more proactive in seeking political influence the Evangelical priests in their churches especially those of the biggest searching in Brazil such as the Universal Church of God the occasion of your cell to Hanes deals led by Juma do it you must see a do also owns a very large. TV Station in Brazil called record TV and he hasn't being extremely vocal but he has given even some public comments supporting able scenario the far-right candidate that ended up winning the elections now. The president of Brazil and there are several media reports showing how even though the public indoctrination or public mention of candidates and support in the church during ceremonies themselves themselves are quite discreet or sometimes completely absent on the margins of the religious ceremonies in the way that people talk and discuss with each other. They are quite supportive of what is currently the far right movement in Brazil the talk phone crime conservative in social terms so this is a very strong movement. Many Brazilian a majority of the evangelicals showed support for Djabel scenario by some poles seventy percent of Brazilians who identify as evangelical voted full. Oh Bolsheviks what's your sense of which way round the horse and the car were there by which I mean were evangelical voting Wgir Bolsonaro. Because because they think he's the guy always Bolsonaro going out of his way to convince evangelical that he's the guy so the interesting thing. Is that Djabel. Sano is N- aunt and oven jellicoe. He doesn't follow jellicoe religion his Catholic however his wife is of Jellicoe and he has demonstrated several policy positions nations and other philosophical points that are very aligned with evangelical concern so for instance the transfer of the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem Jerusalem. He stated publicly during the campaign than closer to the election. He showed that he wasn't sure about it. And now he continues to tiptoe on that however it was a point that is widely supported by the fans Alecos because of their belief that the Jews should return to Jerusalem and rebuild their temple so at the second coming of Christ would come to believe that is very widespread evangelical community at least in Brazil and other points such as publicly stating certainly in the pass on to some extent the president also stating opposition to gay marriage to the presence of gender and sexual education in schools that evangelical bellicose think is beyond unacceptable for their ultra-orthodox views. Sold these points. jellicoe symbols on auto are very well aligned. There are some voices in the oven. Jellico community that worry about the long term implications abused for the Evangelical Movement as a whole for its future because at the same time that there are very comfortable. Alliances of positions between both scenario and the evangelicals Bono also states some points that are quite violent excellent and points regarding public securities. Such as shooting took you criminal supporting torture off. Criminals suspected criminals and these tend to afflict particularly the poor and particularly poor black men which is also the constituencies the demographics that tend to be more heavily. Evangelical John Jellicoe so it's not a complete harmony of thoughts but so far the social conservatives mobile zone auto and of the Jellicoe movements have become quite aligned. Wind is it a challenge for President Bolsonaro or any Brazilian politician to try to manage the The expectations the hopes and the energies of both the van Jellicoe and the Catholic Church. Are there points of difference between them at all. I believe that it is a challenge to acquire the political political support of these different communities while also attending or respecting the less conservative positions of the rest of the Brazil's population. So the reason why this balance between jellicoe Catholic hasn't been very prominent in recent years. Is that the Evangelical Movement has been quite divided politically whereas the Catholic Church doesn't explicitly get involved in politics. The evangelicals have been involved but in a very fragmented way so they haven't really supported a single presidential candidate or a single political party. Brazil country with around thirty parties represented in Congress and it is is very fragmented and there are evangelicals in many many parties. Do Workers Party that is now. The main opposition the arch enemy of Bozon Otto and his right wing wing movement. The work aspired self aligned itself with the Evangelical so during Duma rousseff and Duma Roussev went back on some policy proposals to provide sexual education gender education schools because of Evangelical Influence Tube. Resilient political fashion diva jellicoe movement. Woman has been quite versatile and adaptive in align itself to whoever is in power in order to increase its influence and tried to block some of the moves against its philosophy and its main driving influences main driving voice has been against social freedom issues abortion gay marriage sexual education schools and things like that so just as a final thought then if as does seem to be the case. Brazilian politics has become more conservative. At least if we think think of that phenomenon as being personified by the current President Dawda extent is that being driven by religious faith whether it is the more traditional oh Catholic faith or the the new genetic evangelical faith. I think a big part of this right-wing shift of Brazil and the growing conservatism servicemen. That has been demonstrated by political leaders is being driven by evangelicals would just saw that the number of evangelical representing Congress rose by ten percent in the lower chamber of Congress in the October elections so their presence in politics has been increasing. It's just not something that is to the dominant can't power. Its shares power with some all the conservative sections so for instance in Brazil there is a faction of Congress that is called BBB so for stands for bullets bowls or cattle and Bible so the agribusiness influence is very strong as well and they also have a conservative view view. Those that support the more freedom to bear arms also tend to align themselves with the social conservatives of Jellicoe so these forces allied lied to themselves the form of important source off conservatives and to some extent swing shift in Brazilian politics Antonio some thank

"When you're white. You don't know what it's like to be living in a ghetto. You don't know what it's like to be poor. There are no poor white people. Everybody knows that. You know that white privilege thing that we've heard so much about. I was talking Friday about Jewish privilege. Because a wise man in Chicago at our politics and a pint. Event last Thursday night. He said, listen, I wanna I wanna share this with your. Here's one show. It's a concept Jewish privilege. He said I said, yes. He said at the end of World War, One the Germans we're looking for someone to blame all their troubles on the economy had gone to hell and all that was misery and squalor and no employment and and everybody was starving to death. And they had to find a scapegoat. They had to find somebody to blame. So the national Socialist Workers Party, not conservatives not small government. People not constitutionalists. Not jeffersonian Republicans. No, no, no, the national Socialist Workers Party in Germany. They decided that their scapegoat would be the Jews Jewish privilege the Jews made too much money. They were too rich. They were too powerful. Too small a group had too high a concentration of power and money and affluence Jewish privilege now the left here as updated that bit white privilege white people have too much power too much money things don't usually go. Well from this point on layer on top of that toxic masculinity. It's toxic masculine. Did we get audio of the runners are we? Because that's that's good stuff. And Bernie Sanders. We've got a couple of Bernie things first up because Bernie Bernie Bernie Sanders. He's James Hodgkinson biz. Here's one story of Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders politely asks supporters, not to harass his opponents rolling. Stone magazine reports what else do all very bad through. Engage respectfully without democratic. Opponents said Bernie Sanders in an Email to his supporters. You know, there was another Bernie Sanders supported by the name of James Hodgkinson. He went down to a baseball field in Alexandria Virginia with an S gas rifle and a pistol. The shot congressman Steve Scalise tried to shoot Senator rand Paul tried to shoot and kill every Republican on the baseball field. It was a suicide mission. This Bernie Sanders. Volunteer was carrying out. He was shot to death by US capitol police, and I'm not sure whether the Alexandria place where also involved Virginia place, but he was shot to death because he was on a suicide mission. Now, Bernie this time around maybe a little Hanky about this guy. Because this guy was a volunteer in his Facebook page was covered with Bernie and he met with Bernie staffers at Bernie's office on Bernie's Capitol Hill. And now Bernie because the left, you know, they got an Tif rioting and smashing and Bill. Have we had an arrest in that Berkeley political violence that political assaults last week? I don't think they're actually trying. What do you think because they like political violence because they're the left? So he is writing to his supporters asking them to not harass. Now. Why why do you have to do that you vile 'cause you're you're violent followers are such a threat to civilization and the answer is yes, that's actually why during the two thousand sixteen elections many Hillary Clinton supporters felt harassed by supporters of Senator Bernie Sanders. So you go ahead and harass Republicans just harass other leftists and Sanders is trying to get in front of that before the twenty twenty race heats up by sending an Email urging fans to engage respectfully with his democratic opponents say not with Republicans. So it just tells them to behave civilly with fellow Democrats as we engage with our opponent in the Democratic Party. We will forcefully present our views and defend ourselves against misrepresentations. But let us do our very best to engage respectfully with our democratic opponents. Say, but he doesn't say anything about Republicans here because that's. No, I wasn't shooting at fellow Democrats your volunteers that's one of Bernie's irregulars. There are more trust me. But let us do our best to engage. Respectfully with our democratic opponents talking about the issues, we're fighting for not about personalities are past grievances. Yeah. Good luck. With that.

While they were some German anti semitic agitation during the late nineteenth century. Germany was not really the place. It was thought to flourish. Why did the highly educated Germans embrace a lunatic like Adolf Hitler asks Jim Powell and Forbes magazine. And he writes the short answer is that bad policies caused economic military and political crises Chow time for tyrants, and when people became angry enough a desperate enough. Sometimes they'll support crazies who would never attract the crowd in normal circumstances. Now are we in that stage in America? No, the media would have you believe we're in those bad times. We're not in those bad times is a complete construct of of the left-wing media. People are fat and happy there's an obesity epidemic. Nobody is starving in America. There's nobody really needs anything in this country. All they have is jealousy which is whipped up by the likes of the left in this country. Such as camera Harris, offering free healthcare is though that is something you're entitled to well. No, you're not entitled to it. But let's go back to how dictatorships arise and dictators come to power in a democracy because we are now certainly in a in a democracy of sorts. We certainly are. I know it's a Republic. I heard that fifty years ago. It's a Republic, not a democracy, please. Let's not get picky with each other. But how could a dictatorship arise in this country? How the left is expressing their desire for such a dictatorship. So what did Hitler do? Well, hitler. I joined the German Workers Party that in February nineteen twenty became the national socialist German Workers Party. Did you catch that national socialist German Workers Party something for everyone began as the AP what was the national socialist German Workers Party? It was a brew of nationalism. Socialism anti-semitism and pay attention in Brooklyn, Berkeley, anti-capitalism nationalism combined with socialism combined with anti-semitism anti-capitalism. So of those four elements three of them are the watchwords of the democrat party of today. The only thing missing from the American left running the democrat party today is any sort of love for the country. So what happened next what happened next? Well, Hitler became a great speaker speaker, and he started to denounce Jews capitalists and other alleged villains and he vowed to rebuild German greatness. Now, I want to go into denouncing Jews and capitalists because right now the democrat party have sitting congresswomen who are denouncing Jews that have done. So for years, mainly they are Muslims who are now the Hitler's of their party, only, you wouldn't hear that from anyone else in the media because they're all busy kowtowing to the kerchief back in a minute on the Savage Nation..

"We're back with Brazilian journalists at the cahan talking about the recent presidential election in Brazil and the far right candidate who won both narrow. So the election in Brazil was characterized in part by something that we know a lot about here in the United States fake news. So what was the role that fake news played in the election? We had a campaign Brazil that was massively based on fake news that spread out through mainly. What's up the popular messaging app owned by Facebook finding himself surrounded by claims misinformation? Shared with almost impunity on the platform, and in Brazil, this is a hugely popular. What kind of fake news was going out there that you say could move an election for a country, the size of Brazil, forty million people in Brazil us up. I participate in a lot of groups because as a journalist I want to see what people are saying. I say ninety five percent of the things that I received on what's up were lies. There are studies that very limited still that followed some of these groups most of these were things against the Workers Party related to like communism and saying that, you know, if the Workers Party win the election, they will turn Brazil Venezuela, which could be true like maybe twenty years ago, but the workers prior to having been in power for more than a decade in did not transform Brazil in Venezuela. So there was a lot of like a campaign to spread fear, and then this newspaper full at some Pollick posed how businessman make contracts with marketing companies who use what's. Up to spread propaganda, which is not illegal. But most of the information that they were spreading were pro bowls on our show and against the Workers Party, according to for this newspaper here in the United States after Trump was elected. There was a lot of soul searching in the media about how they covered the campaign. So what are journalists in Brazil saying today in Brazil, for example, what happened was that? We basically over this the urban centers. So we don't talk about the problems that people really have don't discuss that we keep covering just the capital Brazilian like hearing this e and some Paolo which compares to like New York, right? The financial market and and the political power. And we forgot about the people. We forgot about like Bailey problems that the that people have and the reader sheep has not only decreased. In brazil. But also those who read our older and also reach her. There is a lot of upset about this this election. But you know, the media response would be well but bit day the leftist party under Lula. There was so much corruption. They lost the faith of the people. So there is legitimate. Critique that the corruption on the part of the bid day leads to this exactly there is an it was huge the mistakes worker Spar commuted was huge. And I think also let people trusted them they were all position for many many years. They were they made huge promises to the people that in the end they cannot really accomplish. You know, we have more than thirty parties. Historically, they have been findings in campaigns was with. Donations from car perations, you know, in exchange for big contracts, and I think people hoped this would be different with the Workers Party. And it was not. So now what in terms of of the opposition? Will there be a real attack on civil society at this point? We don't know president Boso Nado has. He he literally said he would put them in jail forever or van them from the country, and he has also attacked the press. So basically, we don't know what's going to happen. If there's one positive thing of this campaign was that a lot of women as you as you pointed went to the streets. And I think women empowerment in Brazil is a very recent phenomenon, but the very strong one. And one of the things that this campaign made us to go von is all these women's movements and women murdered as the political voice of this campaign. So maybe position my come from them..

This year's election campaign was one of the most divisive in Brazil's history families and friends turned against each other mass protests for and against the leading candidate filled the streets. And the reason the election was so controversial was because of the man who won far-right leader Gerry Poulson narrow a former army, captain who is often referred to as Brazil's Trump because of his anti-establishment rhetoric and populist views Torius for remarks considered fascist racist, homophobic, and above all sexist.

I was young still when we had the first free elections in Brazilian an one thousand nine hundred eighty five and I never thought I would grow up to talk about the possibility of dictatorship in present time. I find it interesting that the first thing you said was you referred to dictatorship. And there are probably people who are listening who say, but this was an election. This was not a military coup candidate during the campaign has repeatedly praised the dictatorship defended the dictatorship. He has paid tribute for for example, Cardozo Obama through was the first military commander who was convicted in Brazil for torturing is responsible for the disappearance of more than five hundred people and. When you say paid tribute. Like, what do you mean when former president Duma who Saif was impeded he was at that time a congressman and during his speech for her impeachment. He named Ostra the head of the torture unit from the dictatorship and Dilma who Rousseff was one of the women. The menu women that were tortured during that time. He praised him as a hero during his vote. View. Dale.

What are some of the things that both to narrow the soon to be president of Brazil has said against women against the LGBTQ community against afro Brazilians? What is he said mighty dad? The Hosanna is a Workers Party congress woman, and they had this discussion. And then he said, they will not rape you because you don't deserve it. And then the reason was that she was ugly. It's not only the the violence of the words is also the mindset of putting rape as something that we've been can deserve or not..

Well, let's move along slightly and look at the United States, which continues to learn that electing a populist demagogue to its highest office is not a cost free experiment.

Not seem to be a fan of Donald Trump in that Robert Bowers appears to believe Trump unacceptably liberal, but bows did walls rather where he's a habit.

It is a it's it's an event which is is hideous in absolutely every aspect, which is something. I think we should acknowledge before possibly making what might be a slightly glib comparison. But is this is this something unusual and different or is this, and it's a horrible thing to have to say out loud. Just another American mass shooting. I think it is different. And I think it's different because the frequency and the scope of the types of attacks that are occurring are coinciding with rhetoric from the president. So you know, when you look back on violent extremism that's come out of America in the past. You couldn't point to words of the US president amplifying antisemitic conspiracy theories right before the attack the argument against that would be of course, that America has an immense if we'd le- under-discussed history of political violence. Yes. That's absolutely true. But this is my point right? So win these attacks happened. They there was not an ability to say, okay. The president stoked it, right? The they targeted these people before they were targeted. So we have in the last couple of days we've had bomb sent to all of Donald trumps favorite targets. Right people that he is called the enemies of the people when it comes to CNN, and then he blamed them for the bombs after suggesting they were a hoax with the Jewish synagogue. He amplified a far-right conspiracy theory about George Soros, the Republican leadership said that George Soros was paying for this caravan of migrants coming from Latin America, and that is what triggered this man to go up, and shoot a synagogue. So it's not it's only take a massive amount of logical leaps to get from the fact that these conspiracy theories that are being spread by people in positions of power that are then being absorbed minimized by people in positions of power are happening at the same time that Donald Trump is explicitly praising political violence because he said that Greg Jian for to violently attacked reporter was his kind of guy because he used violence..

Both in our we could tick off his extremist views over the years about women extremist views about gay people about black people in at times. He's even suggested that he supports dictatorship in Brazil. How polarizing is the new president-elect Brazil? Well, he is a figure that spilt his career with very aggressive rhetoric aggressive towards minorities, he is a former military army, captain. And so he has defended the military dictatorship in the path. He has a paid homage to figure that was a torture during the dictatorship in congress, and this speech that usually resorts intolerance, and that usually talks about incriminating his opponents just the week before he was elected. He spoke of wiping, the Workers Party, the left-wing Workers Party supporters from the face of Brazil is highly polarizing and is seeing. With fear amongst people who voted against him. So it is quite a delicate moment for Brazil and an unprecedented moment in Brazilian history. So how did he rise to prominence so quickly because this is a man who also spent decades in Brazil's congress without much of a legislative record? Yes, precisely he really grew through his attacks towards the Workers Party and was fueled by the huge anger. And I think it's fair to say hatred. That's Fred towards the Workers Party in Brazil after massive corruption scandals that have emerged over the past years. So the Workers Party left wing party was in government for thirteen years. People will remember the government of former President Lula Lula is now in prison since April this year and corruption on corruption charges. Yes. And he's facing other charges as well. And many people in Brazil are just fed up with the Workers Party.
