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. Crisis Demaim concession declare victory, and it's a standard play because it works in diplomacy is in life, the reasonable often defer to the unreasonable as long as it will persuade them to shut up.

Understanding 'church and state' in Brazil
"Today's show. 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

Majority of Brazilians Think Lula's Release from Prison Was Fair
"Fifty. Four percent of Brazilians Fink that the decision to free Lula was fair And forty two percent disagree agree. But that's quite interesting. Marcus when Lula went to jail in April French thousand eighteen. It was the opposite fifty. Four people actually said yes he should go to jail so I think there's been kind of a change of mind among Brazilians about that topic has brought that about well. I wonder if it's because the the the slyly and popularity clarity of variables scenario. Because there's being another question here if you trust You know what's Jacobson says. Forty two percent of people of Brazilians. They do not trust anything. They're both Sonata. Says for Lulu thirty seven percent so so it's quite interesting numbers and people are already predicting that you thousand twenty not to our next presidential election will be again a battle between both scenario and the Workers Party and who knows if there will be kind of a more centrist force in the country. So are you basically saying that now having joined ables Dinara in power makes former lead Seem more viable options a bit more interactive. I guess you gotTa Markus.

Brazil's former President Lula released from prison
"Former president Louis Lula da Silva has has been released on one of the first things he did was to address thousands of his jubilant supporters. The Metalworkers Union in Sao Paulo Monaco's Latin American affairs is correspondent leasing. The Elliott was there and I'm delighted to say. She joins us on the line. Now Welcome back to monocle twenty four. Listen what were things like on Saturday. When Lula appeared appeared was I stay really sort of marked a move really away from Lulu the political prisoner Emerton Lou? The politician thousands of people as you say gathered outside right the union where his political career really took off back in the one thousand nine hundred and they were there to hear his public address and it was a carnival of sorts with live music coming home really that that contrasted hugely to the very somber mood last time. The Workers Party supporters met at the site in April of last year when Luder actually handed ended himself into the authorities and went to prison. We stayed until fairly late. And there was a brief moment where he sort of popped his head out of the Union Wendo to say good night but it was certainly one of if one of celebration on Saturday and also there is a sense that this is a political breakthrough because yes he has been imprisoned and no he. The corruption charges have not been dropped and no he can't run for public office but this is him positioning himself back in the political limelight. Isn't it yet. He certainly and he reiterated his political ambitions of the weekend naturally said that the left can take back reveals presidency in the twenty twenty two election. Technically yes he's barred from running running for public office because of the conviction because of the charges against him but there were talks actually of a national tour in coming weeks or months where he set to meet with constituents truants. I mean there haven't been further details about that whether he actually manages to eventually become a candidate again. What is clear he seems to be trying to? Galvanize is in reinvigorate the left in Brazil because up until now there's been a distinct lack the plausible opposition figure to Bolsonaro since he took office a little over eleven months months ago and unloader appears to want to be just that. Do you think he will be able to be plausible political figure given the fact that he has got such a backstory that no one can forget get I mean for his detractors. Lulu still remains a highly controversial figure and is blamed for fostering a culture of corruption in Brazil and should be kept opt in prison. I mean I remember. When he was jailed back in April last year there were fireworks going off in parts of the country and celebration and also on Saturday? Although it wasn't as widely reported did but pro Bolsonaro groups really came together in the city of some Paolo in supported. The president's and to many of the millions voted for Bolsonaro in the last election. Lueders release piece is is a reminder of exactly why they did and there have been talks among political analysts early this morning that say that maybe it's not the best moves by the Workers Party to out him. At Center stage we see how in Argentina recently by putting polarizing but nevertheless still powerful figure Christina kitchener further in the background. You know she ran as vice president. That really paid off and she liked. Lula had a string of corruption related charges against her But being in the backseat so so yes. This is still very much up for debate at a whether it would be a a move sorts. Tell us a little bit more about what his the next move can possibly given the fact that he's barred from standing for office but nonetheless is not barred from speaking in public exactly so the charges haven't been dropped against against him what's changed. Since Thursday's Supreme Court ruling is that he can appeal but as a free man and very publicly before he had to exhaust. The appeals process from jail and this is also applied to thousands of other inmates here in Brazil his conviction relating to the beach side apartment stands and his lawyers said the over the coming weeks immediately. They're going to continue to appeal because he was serving this for eight years and ten months for corruption and money laundering and still faces a half a half dozen corruption. Trials luda still whoa denies all the charges and he's urging that they're politically motivated in order to keep him out of the presidential election and but for the moment you know the the main thing is that he's out in public. Listen to relate. Thank you very much indeed for joining his own monocle twenty four. Let's get more on this now. From Ovarian Fernando Pacheco Echo Fernando is native of Sao Paulo and was back home visiting his family over the weekend. In fact just off the plane hunting your finances so welcome to the studio. Just tell us a little bit more about what it it was like to be in Sao Paulo in your hometown and see Lula back in the headlines again. First of all he was such a surprise. I was not predicting This decision decision by the Supreme Court and when it was announced of course it was big news in Brazil it was on tv all the time. I had to cancel my evening plans because as a good journalist even on holiday today I was I mean He Luli such one of the most important political figures in Brazil ever in a way and as listened to say he's quite divisive You either loving or hating. It's very difficult to not have an opinion about Lula in a way and interesting. Because you know I'm from some Paolo which is actually political conservative states especially in recent years so perhaps I got a different vibe. I'm sure Lula has many supporters in the northeast. But where I was in symbolic impala could fuel a lot of people actually attacking the Supreme Court For our the ruling can be felt in the streets got it because I mean Brazil has never been Brazilians. Excellent never been backwards in coming forward and expressing their political opinion in the streets but Your mum is from Sao Paulo and she's a therapist isn't she says she's gentle lovely lovely soul anyone who's been lucky enough to meet Fernandez. Mother will have their life slightly enrich via. But you get but even she has been subject to political Michael victimization. Doesn't she's by simply going on. Line trolling is rife absolutely me Shirota. Something like democracy or on her social media and and so leaving among her group of friends people were attacking and some people start even swearing. I mean she even decided to delete that and it is true Even in Brazil some point I was covering the election eighteen. I kind of I felt kind of a some sort of fear when I was in the cab. If I wanted to express my political opinion lenient because people. They're very heated. They will call you names. I mean I'm not saying everyone does that but it is very heated moment In Brazil the moment dis. I think that the release of Leila a man who's who so intrinsically linked with Brazil's past and with all the corruption that goes was with it is the right person to change the political game in Brazil given the fact that Bolsonaro in many ways is an open goal given how deeply deeply unpopular he is with certain areas of society. This is so hard ammo because let's not forget. Lula is a fantastic reiter. I mean when he spoke when he was released released. I mean it was like Oh my God finally have a challenger to both scenario but I agree with you this is a man also who hated by many Brazilians and a person that that is hated by almost half of the population. I think it's quite hard for him to be kind of become president again for example. We don't have leaders Such such as Lulu or even a bolt sonar. We don't see a new generation coming up at least at the moment so it's going to be very hard and aggressive in check. I thank you very much indeed for joining me in the

briefly explain the backstory here between Turkey and Syria and the Kurdish allies and isis and and how the United States is involved in all this we I'll try to keep it brief there is a very complicated situation down there efficiently northern Syria is a territory that is largely Kurdish it's part of what occurred consider Kurdistan which is not a country as recognized by anybody else but on the Syrian Kurdish people's protection units or they're they're a militia that is extremely anti ISIS are extremely anti Turkey and they are their own ethnic group they are their own militia and they are allied with there also communists so that I had the and sort of bizarre twist to this but they consider themselves pro America marches because they consider Marxism the opposite of jihad jihadist ideology radical Islam all that stuff and the word of ground troops that liberated locked out which was the capital of the ISIS caliphate they were the ones that went in there we gave them air backing fighter jets backing and it may have been the most useful allies we've had in the region they don't really have much of a dispute with for Charlotte's odd because they simply operate in a different region of Syria than where a lot of the active hostilities in terms of Assad verses the rebels which are often soon the Arab Muslims and they they certainly have a dispute in that they believe that they are a sovereign state within Syria a sovereign Kurdistan but they haven't really brought that up yet to Assad they're still trying to fight Turkey do you do with Turkey is that part of Kurdistan is inside the Turkish border and we're in Turkish Kurdistan there's a group called the Kurdistan workers party which is a Marxist group deemed a terrorist organisation by the United States and they often engage and they they have for years engaging kind of bombings in small level the kind of seventies style terrorism we saw in Europe that's what they've done and they no longer do much of that but Turkey considers the PKK to be indistinguishable from our allies against ISIS the third you want to go in it and eliminate the Syrian Kurds that helped us eliminate ISIS because they think that they are the same as the marches terrorists within Turkey and so that's where the big issue is because Turkey is also a NATO country which means that we are bound by treaty to defend them from anything and they consider that our allies are a threat to their sovereignty the mass wow wow service is more tells our gas from Breitbart Frances chasing the hammer here now one of the things I find interesting is we're hearing a lot of reports that the Pentagon officials were completely blindsided by this they were shocked they had no idea this was coming down is that what you're hearing is well one take me through what's going on in the Pentagon right now well yes and I think something big that happened here last time on the show with you guys actually was when John Bolton stepped down in Bolton is a huge supporter of the Kurds huge supporter of an independent Kurdistan and he leaves and suddenly we have the decree that we're gonna where we're gonna let the Turks do what they think is necessary and get rid of the the card is present on their border that was a bit of a shock to the Pentagon because the the Turkish plan the one plan and everyone is an Islamist he's a Muslim Brotherhood guy he is not our friend even though we are treaty bound to defend the country everyone wants to cross the border eliminate the Kurds and then re populate that area which Arabs Syrian refugees because Turkey's economy is completely boggle down by the millions I believe it's four million Syrian refugees are in Turkey now and they're living in refugee camps essentially within Turkey he wants to get rid of those people by getting rid of the courage and then replacing that Kurdish area with Arabs who are friendly to Turkey and the Pentagon is obviously not in favor of this planet doesn't benefit anybody except for everyone on and in some cases outside of the all kinda linkedin groups that can recruit from the Sunni Arab population any benefits to some extent Russia which is an ally of Assad because Assad doesn't want to deal with it is right now we've got a whole other civil war to deal with so there's a lot of resistance in the Pentagon to doing anything that benefits everyone and rightfully so at the same time I mean there's a lot of frustration from the White House and from people like rand Paul who are kind of anti anti war folks that Americans are dying because of this mess you know the average American could barely tell you workers hand is why should our children we don't want to die for this but I think the average American does know the term or the word the group ISIS met his is ice is still a big problem in that region I mean the caliphate's been destroyed I I think that's really was a big reason why there was a United States presence there yeah and I was never a problem in the region that we're talking about because that was the Kurdish territory so they weren't even allowed in those militias are hard core they did what they could do is keep them out where I was in Iraq on that with an Arab territory and the Kurd went in because we said we would back the curtains and and a lot of people are kind of uncomfortable with that because having a Kurdish army invaded our territory that to be problematic but I got rid of isis so at this point there are you know there are a few pockets devices religions and what there is is a huge population of ISIS jihadists in Kurdish jails that there's a lot of concern now that if we you know if we don't defend the Kurds they're going to be attacked and then those prisoners are going to break free and we're gonna have another I Turkey's going across the border to get the rest of ISIS button and they don't like the Kurds either in Turkey wants to take them out as well is that right is that really care about ISIS either way I mean everyone likes to say that you know treat all terrorists like terrorists street the card the same as license and kill them all but you reality border was officially open from twenty fourteen to twenty sixteen for any ISIS jihadists who wanted to come from here or Germany or wherever I want to go into Syria and join ISIS thirty did nothing to stop that to the idea that turned you want to go in there to eliminate isis is just it's nonsense as more tell world editor at Breitbart joining us here on the hammer and Nigel show I'm looking at a couple tweets here Francis the president had a tweet storm earlier and one of the things he mentioned was it's time for us to get out of these ridiculous endless wars many of them tribal and bring our soldiers home meanwhile senator Lindsey Graham who's had kind of a back and forth relationship with president trump over the years he tweeted out there press reports are accurate this is a disaster in the making what is this going to mean for Donald Trump inside of his inner circle on Washington well I think the people that have been there from the beginning with trump and know that he's wanted to do this for awhile and and will back him Congress is going to go nuts and they already are going nuts with Graham tweeting cemented because it it's a it's beneficial for you know it'll get you on TV shows to go not that trump over not understanding foreign policy and two they want to create this idea that determined abandoning our allies and making allies with dictatorships they've done this with China they claim that from the middle out enough on the Hong Kong protests even though our country's doing everything we can you know do in terms of legislation to defend the Hong Kong protests they've done this with Saudi Arabia and so now they're going to do this with everyone where they're gonna come out and try to tarnish the president on this the thing that is most interesting to me is that if you actually look at what the statement says we're withdrawing from a real job which is the the Kurdish area we're just moving out of there to a different part yeah I didn't see anything about these troops coming home in a report that the ship coming home and more recently the president tweeted that is he is displeased by anything Turkey does he just gonna go back in there and and destroy them and that's very easy as the troops are just moving you know a couple of pounds over which was kind of my impression of what's happening grams was obviously very different he thinks we're just giving up our presence there entirely we also president trump claimed to give up the American presence in Syria entirely at the end of last year and I was a huge fire storm as well so if we withdrew completely live here from Syria I'm not even sure who were withdrawing

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.

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..
Is the separation of church and state an impossible fiction?
"Van jealou- Kohl's more explicitly politically ambitious in the Catholic church was they want to take a more direct role in Brazilian politics. Absolutely. Evangelical have been by far more active and more proactive in seeking political influence the evangelical priests in their churches, especially those of the biggest searches in in Brazil, such as the universal church of God, the vision of cell to Hainault deals led by Juma. Do it. You must see a do also owns a very large devestation in Brazil called record TV. And he hasn't been extremely vocal. But he has given some public comments supporting Jibal so narrow 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 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 suppo-. Live off. What is currently the far right movement in Brazil, the sort of tough on crime conservative in social terms. So this is a very strong movement in Brazil, and a majority of the oven Jellicoe showed support for valuable so Naro by some pulse. Seventy percent of Brazilians who identify as evangelical voted for ball Shara. What's your sense of which way round the horse in the car were there by which I mean were evangelical voting Vizcaya Bolsonaro because they think he's the guy. Always I also narrow going out of his way to convince evangelical that he's their guy. So the interesting thing is that Djabel sano is not an Jellicoe. He doesn't follow innovate Jelica religion, his Catholic. However, his wife is even Jellicoe, and he has demonstrated several policy positions and brother philosophical points that are very aligned with even Jellicoe concern. So for instance, the transfer of the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to jerus-. Elim 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 even Jellico is because of their belief that the Jews should return to resume and rebuild the temple. So that the second coming of Christ would come. It's a belief that is very widespread and even Jellico community, at least in Brazil and other points such as publicly stating certainly in the past and to some extent in the present will sonata stating opposition to gay marriage to the presence of gender and sexual education in schools that even Jellicoe stink is beyond unacceptable for their ultra-orthodox views. So these points if Jellicoe symbols on auto are very well aligned there are some voices in the Jellico community that worry about the long term implications of this for the oven Jellicoe 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 oven Jellicoe, both Renato also state some points that are quite violent and points regarding public security such as shooting to kill criminals, supporting torture of criminals, all 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 even Jellicoe. So it's not a complete harmony of thoughts. But so far the social conservatives mobile on auto and of the Jellicoe movements have become quite aligned is it a challenge for president Bolsonaro any Brazilian politician to try to manage the the expectations the hopes and the energies of of both the van calls, and the Catholic church are there points of difference between the Natale I believe that it is a challenge to acquire the politic. Support of these different communities while also attending or respecting the less conservative positions of the rest of the Brazilian population. So the reason why this balance between even Jellicoe sin Catholic hasn't been very prominent in recent years is that the Jellicoe 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 is a country with around thirty parties represented in congress, and it is very fragmented. And there are von Jellicoe, you know, in many many parties, the Workers Party that is now the main opposition the arch enemy of Bozon arrow in his right-wing movement. The work aspired self aligned itself with the evangelical during Duma Rousseff and Duma Roussev went back on some Paul. Proposals to provide sexual education gender decay shin schools because of even Jellicoe influence in true, Brazilian, political fashion. Diva Jellicoe movement has been quite versatile and adaptive in aligning itself to whoever is in power in order to increase its influence and try to block some of the moves there 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 of that phenomenon as being personified by the current president Daud extent is that being driven by religious faith. Whether it is the more, traditional Catholic, faith or the new and in a jetty evangelical faith, I think a big part of this right-wing shift of Brazil and the growing conservative.

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.

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.

This elections a second round run-off between Bolsonaro and a candidate from the leftist Workers Party racist, bitterly, polarized, Latin America's largest democracy. We're joined now by NPR's Philip Reeves, he's envio deja narrow. Hey there Philip. So is this election essentially a done deal as he that far ahead. Will it certainly look that way of the last couple of weeks giant Bolsonaro has had an eighteen point lead in the polls. Thanks to his ability to capitalize on deep public, contempt and anger in Brazil's towards establishment politicians. He's done that despite being a congressman himself for many years, and he's channeled that anger at his rival from the Workers Party blaming that party for the recent recession, which was the worst in Brazil's history and for a huge corruption scandal because that party was in power win. Those two crisis began to play out. However, the latest poll from yesterday shows the Workers Party candidate phenomena Adagi has narrowed has made some ground and that the lead of Bolsonaro has narrowed to twelve points. A why are we seeing this late swing away from Boston are what's driving it? Eight hundred be certain. The a couple of incidents this week that might have been factors. Boston outta made a speech in which he talked about his leftist opponents as red bandits and said he wanted to drive them off the map and amount of never before seen in the history of Brazil and also a video emerged from July in which one of his sons who's also congressman is heard talking about how easy would be to shut down the supreme court. That's Tim rebuke from the chief Justice of Brazil and analysts here think that this has set alarm bells ringing about whether both now does a threat to democracy because although this country seems to be swinging fought to the right poll show that Brazilians strongly favor keeping their democracy and don't want to return to the dark years of the nineteen sixty four ninety ninety five military dictatorship. So given that polling or these worries of both are well-founded. Well, Bolsonaro says that he's going to respect the constitution. He wants government. He says. Authority, but not an authoritarian government. And that he says he he doesn't want a military takeover annoys as does the army, and he has distanced himself from his son's comments about the supreme court characterizing those really as a mistake. We've been talking about political divisions here in the US. But I understand that campaign has been fairly nasty. Can you talk about what that looks like it started out being nasty, right? From the beginning. I mean Bolsonaro himself was stabbed and severely injured a newly September. And since then we have seen a brawl on what's up, which has been awash with fake, news and abuse. Of course, people have been recalling Boston does pass record of making the Sajjan est and racist and homophobic remarks and that has been out there. And people have been reminded of all that that's been a big scandal about a report that emerge showing that businesses have been Bank rolling. Mass message. Ages are what's up targeting both hours opponent, financial dashiki? And also the have been attacks on the street, which are related to the election and attacks and threats against journalists.

"I'm going to it in my Gregg book, mass hysteria because no one else real. And if I don't who will you America's anchor hammers gonna tell you to go buy it. Wall banger. Is going to tell you look at the greatest book of our time. I don't think America's anchor ham will knowledge, Michael Savage. Nor the others. So I'm gonna tell you that this is the most important book for you to have in your hands right now in a read you one paragraph. If you disagree with me, tell me why. Today is Republicans joined with Democrats to demand that end to separation of families as the illegals crossed the border. We see the warning I put forth coming to fruition. Congressional Republicans as well as high profile conservatives have caved to the emotional outcry championed by the leftist media, oddly enough, they're concerned for these children has only come about under the Trump administration as this practice was largely ignored in the Bush, Obama era, not only has congress rejected efforts to remediate these practices, but it is also failed to replace the largest immigration family detention center, t Donohoe who toe in Taylor Texas yet. Again, we witnessed the media the Democrats and Republicans being persuaded by madness. Public figures are attempting to influence the masses with outrageous statements and exaggerations most irresponsible came from former CIA director, Michael Hayden as he compared this policy to Nazi Germany on Twitter. The former CIA director wrote the governments have separated mothers and children along with the black and white photo of the Birkenau concentration camp and death camp in Poland. As one commentator pointed out, this is page, thirty three of mass hysteria. There were no cafeterias and teachers and video games in the concentration camps of Germany. The kids in our amnesty, detection facilities have all of this and more there. This is nothing but left trying to avoid the real issue of a need for the Democrats to sign on the legislation that will address our immigration laws and other found irony in their hypocrisy and wrote this the national socialist German Workers Party, aka Nazi party murdered six plus million innocent Jews were committed no crimes. The national socialist American non worker, aka democrat party has slaughtered. Sixty million innocent babies chop them up. The chopped up their tiny bodies and sold the parts with the same zeal shown by their ancestors, and the SS who pulled gold out of the teeth of their victims for me, the moral outrage from common useful idiot on the left rings just a bit hollow. And so now, we're being dragged into an emotional hysteria, and my friends again, I ask you to please. Pass a copy of mass hysteria out in the few days that remain. So you will see who is actually pulling the strings on this invasion. And if you think that there are no politicians on the Republican side who are making and we'll make fortunes off the surge of immigrants and have been making fortunes. I can give you a shopping list of their names, it's all fouled and stop mass hysteria. The most important book you will buy this year. So again, what would your advice be if you were advising the president as part of his radio cabinet? We won't call it a kitchen cabinet of the type that Ronald Reagan had I won't call it a buffet cabinet of the type that Donald Trump wants had. He's now being advised by people, and I have no faith in in many of them. I'll be honest with you once this guy Bolton was made national security advisor, the the axis shifted in the Trump administration. Everything went wrong. The whole administration went off kilter. It was good. It was doing really good ones. Bolton was put in there by by very powerful international forces who right now Bolton's trying to scare Russia. You joking. You think the Russians are going to be scattered this guy? You know, what's ironic about Bolton? And Russia just for a minute. This was plaguing me over the weekend. Bolton had a screaming match last week allegedly with general Kelly. Now general Kelly is a certified war hero. He's a four star marine. General do you know what that means? Most people don't even have any idea how significant that is general Kelly is the real American their general Kelly is actually a dove the warmonger is the draft dodger Bolton think about the irony of that a man who is probably never fired a gun wants war with Russia wants to bring missiles into Ukraine a man who's actually seen men die in his arms and seeing them bleed out in front of his arms. A man who gave his son to this nation. Because when I met general Kelly, I went in his office. I we were talking about heroes. And he said do you really like heroes? I said, yes, he said let me show you a hero. And general Kelly. Asked me to enter his office in the White House. And then he closed the door behind him. And he showed me a picture on his mantle and a flag. And he said that's a hero. It was sunny gave his son to this country. He gave his son's life to this country and he's a dove. He doesn't want war because he knows what warriors. Instead, you have a craven maniac around the president who has never fired a gun running around trying to ignite fires all over the globe. Because he's in the Okon warmonger who. No doubt was put there by the military industrial complex, that's a complicated paragraph. But rather easy to follow got many many different Sobel's in it. But it's quite easy to follow beware. The military industrial complex. So Donald Trump came in as a man of peace as a non interventionist, and all of a sudden we wake up and all over the globe. We have problems all of a sudden how many nations can Donald Trump have antagonism with at once. Let's see now count them. There is Russia China. Let's see now. Oh, Iran, that's three North Korea. That's four Mexico. That's. Five candidates that six what's next? When is this going to explode? You know, the the schisms are getting larger the fault lines are getting larger. There's a slight rumbling of earthquakes all over the planet. Jordan says it's pulling out an agreement with Israel that they've had in place for a long period of time. Jordan want some land back that they leased to Israel Israel's now farming it Jordan says we want. Those contested lands back. The fault lines of cracking all over the globe. I feel it. I can feel the masses starring in this country and around the world, and when you see the hordes of the world's poorest trying to break in to this land of milk and Honey. And we have tens of millions of poor in this country. Who are not being taken care of we have a drug crisis. That's overwhelmed so much of this country. Where is the money supposed to come from to treat the drug addicts, the rehab, the care facilities, all the seniors? Where's the money supposed to come from? If now you want another twenty thousand pouring in over the border where are they going to go? They're gonna go where and Los Angeles Dallas, Houston, where are they supposed to go? You're going to welcome to your apartment on the upper east side of Manhattan. I don't think so I don't know of one liberal who wants them here, by the way, they all lie about it. When I run into them. And I do once in a while and many of them listened to my show. They say actually agree with you on a few things. I should really what mainly on immigration. They said we can't have any more of them. Here. We agree with you on immigration. We would agree with you on the homeless thing. They all agree with me. But they say we can't say anything because we're afraid we'll lose business. You know yesterday afternoon. Just a side note wanted me me thing I went to the museum here in San Francisco. There's two great ones. One is the palace legion of honour up on the hill. Overlooking San Francisco Bay on Golden Gate Bridge area, and it has one of the greatest collections of Rodin sculptures in the world. It's a world class collection. And it's usually quiet. It's not got the children running around screaming. There's no music in it. And I go there once in a while to just steep myself in in great European civilization. Great European art anywhere else. I can go within an inch of a painting Mona worth eighty million dollars. And I could see the globs of oil paint. The you know, what it's like to stand in front of a master painting without a glass on that painting, an eighty million dollar painting there just to put it in dollars and cents and be within a few centimeters actually of the oil. I like to put my is right next to the paint. And. To being near that greatness. There's a vibration that comes back at you. So then I combined it by going out to one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. And you know, when I was leaving with the owner of the Chinese restaurants said take care of yourself, Michael we need your voice. I was stunned. I've been eating there for almost thirty forty years. I had no idea. Even listen to the show here is a man owns a Chinese restaurant systems. Take care of yourself, Michael. We need your voice. Okay. Think about that. And then call me. So the great nation that we all share is a great nation that we should all share in preserving. Yes, I am going to say the word stop mass hysteria because the insanity that we are seeing from the left which includes the insanity of we should open our borders to every poor person on the planet. The insanity that this country is racist. The insanity that white people automatically have privilege the insanity that people of color automatically somehow morally superior, these are examples of the insanity is that I'm trying to talk about. Of our time. But most importantly, it's the violence of the left. That's been bothering me ever. Since Nancy Pelosi started agitating crowds at university of California, Berkeley, when she said, we're all disrupt as well. Disrupt. I said you start stirring up the crowds dancy, it's gonna come to bite you. Well, it happened. Finally, a group of right wingers did to her what the left wingers are doing to American loving people. So let's listen to what happened to Nancy Pelosi Nancy Pelosi right here..
