"Hey everybody charlie kirke with assault and brunei otherwise known as james. O'keefe you brought a couple of people in the room with you. See i need you hard time. James suzanne on each other a couple of years hard time but you are one of the few people that actually do something meaningful in the movement. I appreciate that. So you are now.

The media was actually interested in right and you just kind of filling the void of courageous expose style journalism. Why i think there's a relationship. The journalists have become slaves to their access. They they've become dependent on protecting the people in power. They they wanna protect the status quo. Cnn invites clapper on even though he committed perjury. They have a symbiotic relationship with the very people are supposed to be holding accountable so no one is willing to do this. Sort of aggressive watchdog journalism anymore and twentieth century. These explorers lost their mortgages their homes they got divorces but now there's life after whistleblowing because of the digital age and websites like gibson. Go facebook insider morgan. Common last month raised half a million dollars. Charlie in twenty four hours. What did he exposed. He released documents inside facebook. As a software engineer they had quote vaccine hesitancy so facebook admitted. Even if what someone is saying on facebook is true they will censor you and they don't want you to know that they're censoring you and to me. That's the part that so shocking. They want to hide what they're doing. We want transparency into baked tack. So the whistle blowers are coming out in spades.

ASEAN Leaders Plan Myanmar Visit This Week Amid Divisions
"February's coup d'etat. In myanmar presented a considerable diplomatic headache to the association of southeast asian nations or as the on myanmar is a member of as yan and but as he and maintains a general policy of not getting too involved in the internal affairs of its members. However there are indications as the end does understand that. This is at least kind of the problem this week.

Saints ham dived at that point. But not one of the points in the five point consensus has been delivered on since that diane even an even the appointment of an envoy has some good at the chances that joint oh will allow a representative representative of as ian to land in myanmar. Well that would depend on the calculation that the joint aches. We choose whether or not the would be any any downside for them. By rejecting the arrival of anez ian rent the military in myanmar is very good at delaying things. They've they've done this repeatedly of a many decades and they do that to take the political sting out of situations and to take the impetus away from people who might be able to force them to change their direction.

Ai so hi guys and thanks so much for joining us today going high. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. And your current role at brunei. Matt will start with you. I'll bet chambers i. My background is mostly in production and visual effects. I mean in past life. I worked in like internet service and industrial machine monitoring things like that but most of the work i've done is in render farms and big data asset management. And things like that. For feature films. I've worked on the hobbit and the planet of the apes movies and some marvel movies and all those movies generate tons and tons and tons of data in so at buna. I you know.

The transition from Computer graphics and visual effects to machine learning and data science is that We were back.

We were dealing with this huge production of
Going After What You Want in Life Without Shame
"I feel like what we have to do here. I is talk a little bit about shame. So a lot of what i've learned about. Shame comes from bernie brown which is probably no surprise. So i feel like. I need to shout out here at the top of the episode because she researches shame like that's been her main life's work and of course she's written a lot of books about it and ted talks about it and all that stuff. But she's like the foremost researcher chaim. And so this is where i've learned a lot about. What is what it means and what we can take away from ant so her work has informed a lot of thoughts and reflections here. So let's turn to brennan for a comprehensive definition of shame. So this is what she says. I defined shame as the intensely painful feeling or experience of believing that we are flawed and therefore unworthy of love and belonging. Something we've experienced done or failed to do makes us unworthy of connection. I don't believe shame as helpful or productive. In fact i think shame is much more likely to be the source of destructive hurtful behavior than the solution or the cure i think the fear of disconnection can make dangerous another interesting quote from brennan. Shame corrodes the very part of us. That believes we are capable of change. The reason this particular hind stuck out to me so much is because if we don't believe we can change. We're not going to go after what we want right. That's if our belief in our mind is that. I'm not capable of change or i'm not worthy of change than we never take that step forward to actually go after what we want in life and part of living unapologetically as this line says that we're talking about today. Unapologetic is going after what you want in life and so when we believe that we will accept where we are without question because we don't think we're worth whatever comes on the other of change for us. We believe that what we have is. Maybe even what we deserve. It also makes me think of that quote from one of my favorite books of all time the perks of being a wallflower. That book has meant so much to me and my life and there's a quote from the book that when i read it as a teenager it certainly meant something to me then but it does not even come close to the understanding. I have of this quote now in my life and that cool is we accept the love. We think we deserve and as a teenager. I was like okay. Yeah like i get it. I'm like kind of a surface level. But now i've had a lot more experience both with accepting love from other people and for accepting love for myself and i have found that to be so incredibly true. We accept the love. We think we deserve. We accept a lot in a lot of ways. We accept the life. We think we deserve right. And i don't wanna like gloss over privilege and access and and having money like the things that that can do for us in the world's because there is certainly certainly for a lot of us relations. Why maybe the exact life we want. It's not just because we we don't think we deserve it right. There's a lot more to it. The not but i think it is hopeful lens to look at some of this stuff through like i simply accepting what i think i deserve here. Do i think the. I deserve less in this situation and so i have found it very enlightening to look at in this in this area of like accepting a life that i think are or am i accepting lake the call for something bigger or something different and so matching like my sense of worth my sense of deserving ness to what i want so yeah but yet we were talking about shame. I got off her but i do. Think that year quote from brunei. About like shame corroding the part of us. That believes we're capable of change I think that's really important to look out along with her definition so now that we've established like what we're talking about when we say shame. Let's think about the first part of the cement going after what you want in life. So let's give this some context. Okay i have had conversations with people where i will ask them what they truly want in their lives and they can't answer me and by the way that's not because they don't want anything bites. I believe it's because they have learned that the are allowed to want things or that they're not worthy of wanting things that they should just accept things the way they are because what they want is impossible for them and again. This is not something. That's like a super conscious thoughts on the surface. It's not like i asked the question. What do you actually want in life. And they're like While what i want is impossible Because they don't believe him worthy of it right not the actual thoughts going through. Someone's had but it's kind of these underlying beliefs that we have about ourselves Sue ya and and it's really interesting. Because i think on the surface to a lot of us think i know what i want. I totally know what i want like. I just wanna be happy or ida. Slake wanna i don't move to a bigger house or like i just want to be out of debt right but like my question is what are you truly. Want in your life lake. Where do you truly see yourself and what. How does that correspond to like the values that you have your core values right and that's when the conversation gets gets more interesting because it's kind of off of that surface level and more into like the depths of lake. How do you actually want to live. And that question can be challenging to

RCEP: What's the Deal?
"Who has spent much time around. Soldiers will be aware that for the purposes of saving time and door baffling civilians. They communicate to a large extent in three letter acronyms. So an armored fighting vehicle is an a an improvised. Explosive device is an and a three letter. Acronym is itself a t. l. a. There are many more some formal some colloquial some veils for cheerful obscenity if journalists employed a similar vernacular one such t. La would certainly be bb. I to denote a story which is boring but important which brings us. And we think we've just about stuck the landing here to a four letter acronym asset and that seems to be the consensus on pronunciation which is going to catch up a few news. Readers or it could be are kept or chip or recap whichever way you say it. The letters stand for regional comprehensive economic partnership. Stop come back at cetera. Sip is a trade deal all seriously this will only take a few minutes also is a mighty big trade deal indeed arguably the biggest ever don. It includes japan. South korea new zealand and the ten members of asean from tiny brunei to immense indonesia at which the unwieldy asset name does make a certain amount of sense comprehensive regional asian partnership being an obvious non runner. This will seem hilarious in about ten seconds. You'll get that. There is a lot going on with all set as is to be expected from any agreement which fifteen countries many of whom don't get terrifically will have been nearly a decade negotiating but it will be significant given that the signatories of set between them account for nearly a third of global gdp. Some oftens have already estimated. That are sept. Could add two hundred billion dollars to the global economy this decade which given how much of this decade is likely to be spent catching up from this year is no small change. The economic headlines are approximately as follows. Many tariffs on imports. Among member states will be eliminated. Some immediately of his more gradually they will be new unified rules of origin which might encourage companies in asset nations to build more of their supply chains with each other and hopefully do lots of what all free trade agreements is supposed to increase production and opportunity reduced prices on bureaucracy and contribute to a climate of cooperation as opposed to competition which is where our sep looks almost as significant diplomatically. As it does economically it is the first time that china has signed up to a multilateral. Free trade deal. China's premier li ka chiang himself an economist by trade has indeed hailed it as a great victory for multi-lateralism and free trade. Fine talk it may be muttered for the second ranked member of the politburo standing committee of the central political bureau of the communist party of china. And it's at least worth wondering. Is this really where china sees the real value of asset because just as notable is who is in our set is who isn't specifically india and the united states india pulled of the talks last year for fear that eliminating tariffs would threaten indian manufacturers and producers however as the leaders have stressed that the door remains open the us flounced from a different asia pacific trade arrangement in two thousand seventeen. I'm going to issue our notification of intent to withdraw from the trans-pacific partnership a potential disaster for our country. The trans-pacific partnership was one of the first victims of a donald trump tantrum. So there is little doubt about which of assets members will be the dominant partner but it does appear to have been the middle powers of that drove the deal possibly recognizing that it would be preferable for all of them to have china japan and south korea coming to terms rather than blows an optimist a class of pundit who is having a testing kind of you might suggest that this also indicates that china recognizes that submitting to rules-based trade is the next step in its journey to modernity and that it cannot prosper in the long term purely by bullying and menacing a pessimist. Might that this is exactly what china proposes to use this new block for that asset is a means for to keep its friends close and its enemies closer and whether or not that quote is correctly attributable to sun. Suu or michael corleone. The point stands

"Welcome everyone to another not another anxiety show seniority. TOLD GONNA stutter. I, Erica Letham and I am with knees Robinson. How are you? I'm. Good I'm so glad to be with you this morning.

She's an avid friends. Fan loves dinner on Porch with friends and is passionate about telling women they are loved and worthy, and so he so happy you're here. Out Thank you. Thank you for having me. Excited to chat. So we were talking as. As you know. I frankly and sweaty was getting on air here. I have a couple Internet Faux Pas. I spent an awful lot of time in the south for work especially in in your neck woods near near Atlanta and I've been called a damn Yankee a couple of times our. I spent enough time I. Went to college in the West and There are a lot of folk that move there and someone i. To listeners if I drop my New York drawl and pick up a little bit of a southern trying as we. But. A welcome and dying to know what exactly daring facilitator as because you know if you're a browns fan like we are in, are a lot of our listeners are what the heck is that how do I become you? Can I think my head against yours? What is it? Yes. So very nice. ACILITATOR is someone who has been trained in research and the methodology of Brunei Brown and you are trained to facilitate the curriculums that she has written. That are based on her books to gifts of imperfection daring greatly, and rising strong, and then there are certified there to leave facilitators that are trained to. The curriculum that goes along with her books near to lead, which is for businesses in corporate work. In that sort of thing I I am a huge Bernice, out fan I have to say that Her work literally changed my life or Yeah in tooth and I'll I'll Kinda make the story short. But in two thousand, twelve several people from different areas of my life kept asking me if I had seen this woman's Ted talk and they're like name grenade or rene or something like that. This is before Burnett like really hit it big. And like we're five people in the course of a couple of months kept mentioning Ted Talk to me and finally I was like, okay, got to figure out who this woman is and what she's about and so because I tend to be a little bit upset. I I was. I was just going to dive right into Rene, and so I spent the whole, all of two thousand, twelve reading everything she'd ever written, and at that time she had dreamed books out Thought, it was just me the gift of imperfection enduring greatly had had just come out and I spent reading everything. She never written every article I listened to every podcast interview I just really like speak to myself in grenade for several months and I was totally taken aback I've felt like everything that she talked about in her books was what I heard everyday clients talking about on my couch and and I also felt like she was giving voice and naming so many things that that I still struggled with in my life that you know just in whole concept of shame. Keeps a small and and and chain can sometimes we really loud in our lives and sometimes it can be really covert and just recognizing in my own life like, wow, there there are a lot of ways in my life right now that I'm still hiding and you would never know from looking like looking out you know looking from the outside in you know I was at the time was a practicing therapist as I am still now and I'm giving talks and you know and I was out there but I realize in reading from work and reading her research I realized how? To little ways that I'm hiding hiding in things that I I do hiding in things that I never try hiding in people that I'm like Oh. We don't have anything in common I'M NOT GONNA you know get to know her just lots of little ways and and so I started taking comes little baby steps to come out of hiding really really small things that again, no one on the outside would have noticed any difference in my life but I was taking these little steps that felt very vulnerable to me and to my life and one baby step led to another baby step led to another baby step. And in two thousand thirteen. I had been working at a counseling center here in Atlanta were seven years at the time and or six years, and in two thousand and spring two, thousand thirteen. I went out on my own and started my own private practice and and it was because of Brunei and I know I recognized how cheesy. I mean out of my mouth, but it was you know these months with like Oh my goodness. I'm hiding I'm playing small. I. Am giving into those messages of shame and scarcity and I'm not enough I'm not enough capable enough. I'm not business minded enough and you know there was just a lot of not enough nece still going on in my life despite being a therapist and having done years of personal growth and development work and all of those daily steps to this big professional league of going out on my own and starting my own practice which you know has ended up just being. Probably one of the two best decisions ever in my entire life and So in the spring of two, thousand, thirteen I went out on my own, and then that summer was when I went to Texas for the training to be a certified waste, acilitator and So the the work the training just allows you to do a deeper dive into the work and teaches you how to teach the material to others how how to. Apply it to your client work and and so I, I hold daring way retreat to hold rising strong retreats and I integrate the work into my clients and and it's really foundational in a lot of ways to my practice and how I conceptualize shame with clients, and how I talk about all the different ways we armor up we protect ourselves from vulnerability and it's just been life changing personally and professionally for me.
What does South East Asia want from the US and China?
"Bland is director of South, East Asian program at the low institute and Longley to. She's a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute walk into your by. Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. But on the other hand, there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. Gemini so I think we have to understand. It's a complex picture, right? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, Asia Thailand, and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. Try and run the loss years. So it's quite complicated I. Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. Partner, as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. Living next to China, they've known China. Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. The anxiety about China's and China's might end as you mentioned, they've gone through A. Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. So in overall I think they they do have anxiety. There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. Also not too. Aggressive or not to assertive, and they also want to involve other. Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. Where does Jakarta stand on China? Now it's an, it's an interesting question building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. He he is an economy I president. He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, getting more investment into Indonesia, and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. Chinese. Private companies like qualify as well. On, the other hand of course, Jacoby has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. So I think when those of come to head, Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between Indonesia and China. So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, we'll have to find this delicate balance, but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. Let's talk about that. It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, and of course, it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. One of the examples of that, but it is similarly with others opposition countries, which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. Now, you mentioned also on which is very important. Aspect in the relationship. Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, which is very important for agricultural conditions in. Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. Of course, they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. East. Asia towards the United. States if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. What happens if China's rise continues on, abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. Trump and pretty anti-china. There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. In, that scenario. All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, but I don't think at the end of the day. Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. So, it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region
Bren Brown On The Power of Vulnerability
"Renee. I know that you have been Y'all eleven count countdown the days till Brunei. Literally on twitter all my twitter rotties here. Twitter by by quit, April. Rene Vulnerability A has. Ability She's really Dr Bernard Brown but we get to call her Brunette because we're that friendly. She is a professor at the University of Houston Grad School and has spent the past decade studying vulnerability studying courage studying worthiness and shame, and she's also the author of daring greatly. Now. Talked about the book as much as we hear to talk about you all now I know a lot of you saw our two thousand ten Ted talk on the power. Vulnerability. You're among the ten million views and counting for that Ted talk, and she has over two hundred thousand devoted followers on facebook and twitter not bad for a girl from ticks. People have been telling me tweeting me you gotta meet Brown and we finally met a few months ago and we just click we're sisters. We're lost sisters and she introduced us to the notion of daring greatly and I was like yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Could not agree more life is about showing up you say and being seen and daring greatly is the guide for tonight's class teaching us how to bring in everything we've been craving. More. Of everything in our is more joy more trust more intimacy, more empathy, more innovation and creativity. So tell everybody what daring greatly means. Okay. So we asked the life class community to fill in the blanks for US vulnerability. What does vulnerability feel like? Can we see this answer? I grew up thinking vulnerability So vulnerability feels like. Being, helpless. Embarrassed being a small child a lump in your throat emptiness allowing people to judge you letting go the life preserver your first kiss your first kiss everybody remembers that. and. So one of the things I think I've learned the most that was so powerful for me is learning for the first time in my life at forty seven that it is possible to be. Afraid and courageous and the exact same moment bow like i. always grew up believing you're either brave or you're afraid you're either courageous are you were fearful and I think the truth is that most of us are brave and afraid every minute of the day at the exact same time. and to me, that's what daring greatly is. And the truth was that. Up until the Ted Talk I had engineer my career to be very small. Because everyone's sitting in here. Everyone watching. Has something can think of about themselves that would be so hurtful to hear someone else say about you. That, you'd risk anything you do anything to not make that happen like I would never want to hear someone say this about me, and so for me I had that list and in order never to hear those things, I kept my career really small. Then Ted happens and it gets out from underneath me. Then, you get ten million. I love it when she uses that voice. Say. It gives me goosebumps. It just comes over me I can't I know. It's awesome. So. There's like a week where I am everywhere in every magazine and every. News article. And, my husband and my therapist are like do not read the comments online. So I read all the. How many of you can resist show of hands? How many of you think you could resist I have learned to resist? He learns rivals twitter thugs. stugz. Fixing to set them straight. into. Two. Okay. So I read all the comments and on this one day I heard everything. I heard everything that I was afraid to hear my whole life that kept me small. I heard of course, embraces imperfection. What choice would you have if you look like her? She should wait and talk about worthiness when she loses fifteen pounds
What's Triggering You? Get at What is Keeping You Stuck!
"As many of you know. I'm really big on the awareness. Part of our journey we. I have to have awareness to gain insight by getting out there and getting curious about what's troubling you before we can invoke or practice or he'll through behavior change. Have you ever asked yourself? Why does this bother me so much? That's what we're going to try and answer today. The power of the feeling wheel knowing near feelings I has to come through somebody irritating us or of. Oh King that emotional reaction that feeling many unpleasant ones. Those are the Times that we can get clearer about what were angry about or what. We're sad about what we're happy about. Is it envy? Is it guilt is it shame is it freedom is it curiosity? Is it isolation or do you feel provoked? Do you feel worried. Do you feel inadequate. He get what I'm saying here if you are interested in boosting your emotional intelligence if I have to learn your emotional red flags your emotional triggers in Deir to lead Brunei Brown says wherever perfectionism is driving us. Shame is Riding Shotgun. Many emotional triggers down from perfectionism. We feel ashamed to admit things like anger because we are jealous of somebody who I don't know looks better than us. Got a promotion got married. I don't know it could be a ton of things in your world but unless we're willing to look within to see what is deeper and what is triggering us. We may never get to not feel that feeling asking ourselves those tough questions. What is it about this person or their life or their experiences or opportunities. That makes me so jealous. Angry inferior on comfortable. That's the key word. What makes us so uncomfortable around certain people or certain events or topics or even words triggers are unique to you your individual history your personality your experiences think of triggers as wounds. They often come from past trauma remembered. That trauma doesn't have to leave a scar. It doesn't mean hitting it doesn't mean kicking doesn't mean all those terrible things that we hear about emotionally neglecting. Someone is trauma when Moore triggered. We re experienced that past injury that past trauma it creates a disproportionate reaction tune event or to a word and it doesn't feel good. It feels really uncomfortable. Our primary triggers are inside of us in internal dysfunctional personal belief. That we somehow learned usually in childhood can trigger ourselves into feeling these really nasty uncomfortable feelings ashamed of something. If we don't measure up for instance we can activate our inner critic and boy you know how she he they roll right over you. And what the inner critic does is put everyone else before you shame based beliefs about ourselves can make us feel so vulnerable. But it's the wrong hind vulnerability. It's the triggering kind. We're vulnerable to the attacks that we perceive from words and behaviours of others. We surrender our self esteem when we're criticized even if it's not intentional because of these emotional responses for those of us who are highly sensitive in have built a life of co-dependency. Ooh When someone tells us where too sensitive or even selfish Gut Punch right. These are the words that become internalized and brand us for life these judgments that people put on. Us label us. They're untrue now. Triggers can also be external in some cases. They are imminent signs of danger that preceded in earlier wound. We learned to react to them in order to be safe in order to be loved when they were developed they were meant to be helpful but when they're Habich Uli automatically to different situations as we develop in. Grow our reactions become dysfunctional. They don't work anymore. This is when we get uncomfortable when we overreact. And we know were overreacting. We believe that our perceptions are accurate because were reminded of a circumstance of a moment or many moments important pivotal branding moments in our lives. And in some cases these overreactions are learned behavior that were modeled by a parent or a loved one. Someone who really influenced our daily lives
Kishore Mahbubani says COVID-19 won't stop China's rise
"These days for China there's been an economic slowdown a trade and technology war with America. One of the few issues of bipartisanship in today's Washington then there have been protests in Hong Kong global criticism of Beijing's treatment of the Muslim minorities not to mention Western anxiety about the role of Y in those five G. networks and don't forget the allegations of Chinese interference in sovereign states across the region. Add to this. The outbreak of corona virus or covered nineteen and silently some pundits and they mainly in the West. They're asking whether we're witnessing communist China's Chernobyl moment what do you think well one distinguished intellectual who profoundly disagrees with all this skepticism. He's my guest today. Kishore Mahbubani is distinguished fellow. The Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore a former ambassador to the UN twice and a former foreign secretary of Singapore case. Your has risen several influential books on Asia and the rise of China the lightest one is called has China won the Chinese challenge to American Promessi as published by public phase in New York Keisha. Welcome back between the lines. My pleasure there'd be back now you've heard all these. These dial warnings about China and as I say they mainly come from listeners. What do you disagree well? I think it's absolutely certain that the return of China to his place as the number one economy in the world cannot be stopped because from the year one to the eighteen twenty or eighteen hundred of the last two thousand years the two largest economies of the world were always those of China and India so the past two hundred years of Western domination award. History have been an aberration. All aberrations come to a natural end and China's return cannot be stopped. And that's absolutely set. You say in your book that if Xi Jingping does not put in place San Succession mechanisms. America could win this geopolitical contest and bear in mind just a couple years ago. She overturned legislation on. Term Limits for presidents essentially might himself later for life. Some of these critics say that. How does that promote good governance for China and a sound succession mechanism? That will allow China to Rosza Unabated well I would say that the history of China has taught them when they have strong central government. The people benefit a lot. When this week government they suffer a lot and you look at a hundred years of humiliation. That China's suffered from the first opium war of Eighteen. Forty two right until the establishment of the People's Republic of China in nineteen forty nine. The main reason why they went through one hundred years of humiliation was because they had weak central government so what Xi Jinping has given to China is once again very strong central government this is an asset for China. I think he's going to be around as Vita for a long time. And as long as he's around. I think China will do very well. Okay will you say that this geopolitical contest that's broken out between America and China? That will continue marathon. Rice does that mean that Beijing and Washington a doomed to confrontation. Well the the reason why. I'm producing my book now. Has China one his precisely because I want to avoid a confrontation in my. I think it's absolutely unnecessary for the United States and China to get entangled in this confrontation because at the end of the day the primary goal of the United States government is to improve the wellbeing of the American people than the best way to improve the well being of the American people especially in this call. The crisis is to work with China and not work against China but of course unfortunately the United States has other goal and is the primary goal of the United States is to maintain primacy in the global order. Then that will lead to confront To leading American proponents of containing China. John Shaw. The University of Chicago Have Stephen. Walt whom you quoted approvingly in your book about the perils of American Hubris and exceptionalism but on China I disagree. They say I've been guests on this program and I've made this point Measham and casual. They say that a rising China does indeed threaten the regional status quo and Washington moreover will and should go to great lengths to ensure that China does not dominate the Asia. Pacific your response. Well I think the question is whether or not they can both live with each other In the region if if the United States by the way you know all the countries in this region many of them one the United States will remain strong player in this region. I think it'd be good for the region to have United States. Remain as strong Leah. By United States can remain a strong player without on fronting China. He can remain a strong player by working with China In in in many critical areas. And frankly if you ask the countries in the region What they would like to see they would like to see a strong China and they would like to see a strong United States. But they don't want to be forced to choose within China and the United States and we'll get to this question about choosing later on in the show but I want to stick with America. There is a consensus in the region. That America should stay but Foreign Affairs magazine. This is the Distinguished New York Journal to Achieve. Contributed this month. It faces a range of top. Foreign Policy Thinkers. They're all weighing on whether or not the. Us is in the process of global retrenchment The cover of Australia's leading Foreign Affairs Journal. This month is is called can trust America So Am I right in saying you? Don't think American showing any signs of withdrawing from Asia. Now I see no signs at all America retreating from the region and And I think that very strong as you know policy in America is to some extent made by the president but is also made by the deep state and the deep state has a very strong consensus that they got to remain very strongly Industry region. So I don't see an American of withdraw anytime in the near future but I do I do argue that the United States has got to behave differently. With China net once had One tenth the size of China's of America's GNP retailers but today China's be GNP BB. Dems is bigger than the United States. So you behave differently. Was this animal. What about that? Animals DASA more assertive. Now in your book and you listening to Katia Mahbubani. We're chatting about his new book. Has China one in your new book as show you dedicate a chapter to the question is China expansionist and you say basically China wants to respect global rules and norms but let's face it. It has ignored the ruling from the UN's Permanent Court of Arbitration. That was at The Hague in two thousand sixteen. The high concluded for those of you listening who've forgotten about this this is four years ago. Chana's conduct around the Scarborough Shoal and the Spratly islands it was illegal and let's remember Beijing has continued to build up a military prisons on artificial Alan's at drive out local fishermen and in the last few months case. Short Sean has been bullying Indonesia over the Natuna islands. How is all this respecting global order? Well you know one point. I emphasize said there were people talk of benevolent. Great Powers Turn Benevolent Grid. Power is an oxymoron. So as you know the United States today has not ratified the law. The Sea Convention. So in in some areas as China emerged behaving exactly the United States. The United States would never accept going to a tribunal to judge whether or not the United States valid or invalid claiming any area in that respect. China is behaving like the United States by just as the United States. Most of the time respects most international rules and conventions China. Also most of the time respects most of international rules in confections in many ways. China's behavior and America's behaviour is very similar in the international arena. Your critics would say that. China's maritime climbs a contested by the Philippines Malaysia Brunei Indonesia Vietnam Beijing has antagonized nations log New Zealand Australia with cyber attacks and and political interference. Nightside casual these. Not Diplomatic Wins for president. She hasn't he made some big mistakes. Well I it's it's it's interesting. It's always the rest. That is screaming very loud on this South China Sea When was the last time you heard a very strong statement from militia All of all of Philippines On the South China Sea. Why you're seeing behind. What is happening behind the scenes is a lot of diplomacy that is not reported in the Western media. Now I cannot comment on the side of the tax on Shelia and New Zealand but I I believe it was Edward Snowden revealed to us that if you live in today's world you can assume that anything you put up. There is being monitored completely by the National Security Agency of the United States. So I think what the world needs is new conventions in the cyber area and the world should work together do agree on some set of rules for what you can or cannot do in terms of cyber hacking spoke with the New Zealand professor. Anne Marie Bridie last week on this program and she told us about three investigations into Chinese interference in politics that a currently underway in New Zealand. But we WANNA go there now and finished your point. I was quite struck by a law in in your book. He sure well. You talked about the Chinese reluctance to conquer Australia quote. Future historians will marvel at the fact that even though Australia is geographically close to China. It was physically. It was physically occupied in conquered by far more distant British forces absolutely true. I mean if China was an expansionist power wrenching. Her travel all the way to Africa. He could have easily gone to Australia. Additional Australia. Remarkable accident of history. That Australia was colonized by British forces than not Chinese. I mean future. Historians will marvel. The anomaly visits Tom Switzer. On our in 'em I guess is Keisha Mahbubani the former foreign secretary of Singapore and President of the UN Security Council. He's now a distinguished fellow at the National University of Singapore. We're talking about his new book. Has China one now for some of Iran's listeners in Venice Matas whether your overstating China's rise and I WANNA put to you this very rule weakness in limitation surely because many analysts They argue that there's a ticking bomb in China it's low birthright and the aging population and this is the argument that will reduce the workforce and could potentially break social security system. How would you respond to those critics? Oh that's absolutely no question. That China faces a lot of serious Internal Challenges. Because you know it is to instill a developing country It's CABBIE DYING IF I get it right. It's still about ten thousand dollars. One-sixth debt of the United States has a long way to go before it becomes fully developed country. And that's precisely why China wants to focus on its internal development and not get dragged into an all-out geopolitical contests with the United States. So you notice that China wherever possible is trying to avoid getting entangled with the United States even though the United States clearly is challenging the United States challenging the United States charging China In many
Take Your Shot with Robin Waite
"All right Robyn. Can I get it. Oh Yeah Oh yeah nice. Nice Nice first of all robin like we do every single time I wanna say thank you for taking the time out to talk with us because as I know. You're busy entrepreneur. Business owners so there's about a thousand things that you could be doing right now but you decided added to take some time out to talk with us so thank you for that. It's my pleasure. Thank you so much for having me on your show. The next thing I like to do is to ask you to tell us about about yourself now when I say that still free to go all the way back to the day you abort or you can start more. Current Day tells us about Kumaon. Yeah basically I live in the south west of the UK. I've always lived out in the countryside. We have a teachable. I'll take the call twelve and if I need to go listen to visit the the UK they should definitely come and check out the proper like yolly welby costs. Well how does everywhere. I like chocolate box type stuff but now fast forward kind of went through school always wanted to set up a business but didn't really business. I wanted to say so. I worked for a medical device company for about four years systems. Unless I'm a numbers Guy Elti propagate at the gate love my mouth and that point we managed to double the ten Brunei ended up pretty much running the company by the end of the four years so we grew to about a million and a half pounds a year in terms of ten AIBA and being systems analyst. I ended up. I suppose anyway. Firing about half the workforce so we actually work for Stanford about fifteen people down to about seven right because of the systems which I built so very good. I'm list but didn't realize the negative impact on coming on our work or people even at jobs which was fantastic side instead talking and four I started with marketing business. Run that twelve years we agree. That's about a quarter million pounds at ten A.. managed to get up to find employees within that business. That's really great. That will business point. My family was growing so I already had a daughter and then my second daughter is about to come on and I just had that you only have that sort of moment I call it kind of the shit moment where I realized really the agency with great but it wasn't really fulfilling me so I took three months off claims the agency see down and took three months off to spend time with my family and my daughter and you have been a paternity leave on during that time. So we're talking to two Thousand Sixteen fell into the coaching. Actually some people said. Oh you're really successful business. That's in Khost Day in that. Can you help us with that. We don't need to do any of the work. We want you to tell us how to do it so I feel as business business which is what I do now. The coaching practice already built that too similar. So this is actually my marketing business. Not GonNa go to amazing coaches and a couple of other people helping me now and I haven't looked back accurately there's been a real roller coaster ginny. Wow there's so much unpacked there that I don't even know where to start but I'm GonNa take a step back and learn a little bit more about you. What's your favorite thing to do? My favorite thing is the thing so which the U. K. isn't really well nine for itself and you'd probably be looking at Hawaiian someone. uh-huh actually about forty minutes away from where I live now. They've just opened up a wave garden. So that's my Kinda like guilty pleasure disappearing off down there plenty times in the new year. So yes I think. The biggest I've ever said his didn't sound very grandpar- pretty big at the time of fifteen foot waves to Morocco. I call the first. One wasn't quite lucky with the second one and ended up going under the water. It felt like forever but it was about forty seconds before I go back up again and they were very scary. Surreal experience parents. Probably one of the best experiences in My life actually now surfing a fifteen foot wave in Morocco may not seem like a big deal to you Robyn. But that's that's kind of a big deal. My friend tell you what we did is. I went out surfing with a couple of buddies and my friend called me into. And he's like he's like adult paddle paddle and then all I had I was coming off the top of the wave with. Oh Yeah I guess it was more of a big but it was like live the moment that you realized the power of the like. You're you're not point it's just GonNa do what is going to do with you have absolutely no control over it. That's a really good segue to my next question. I'm curious I heard in your intro. The businesses you start it and we're able to grow them in how you were started at a company as a systems analyst and ending running the company talk a little bit about surfing as it relates to that mentality of how you've been able to be successful in business. Joe Funding go on the other day about like if I could align myself with Perry he would not like well. It'd be mass boy again sandwich. Sounds like super nerdy. But I don't know why but I never got the radio bond stuff so you're never going to become like an engineer or something like that but one of the things I did get very early on with uh with the the basic economics on how to run a business in terms of kind of you know not just you know piano profit and loss type stuff ten by not properly sanity but cash is king and cash is one of the things which I kind of understood right from an early age not just to earn it but also have to keep it which is a a thing which a lot of progress really struggle with you here entrepreneur say things like oh I've got cash flow problems but it's not a cash flow problem. The tool the cash flowing into that business is also flown straight back out of the business so he's not cash. Play that issue. It's actually about being up to make more money but also being to keep some of that money so that you can then put towards growing a business and I got that in that first business because the the A business owner at the time. He's a great guy he really got the product innovation side of things. But how do you know understanding pats business so I kind of got into Kunar forced to kind of had to learn it as an eighteen year old school. And I've been out to take sort of fool with tweet to the businesses lifestyle runs in so I'm curious to know a little bit more about that period of your life in career so you end up starting at this company as a systems analyst and you said I think by year four year running the company and end up having a let half the people go because of the system that you put in place. How do you reconcile it? Well I mean the thing is going on since obviously and they got. They got jobs at the time. So that's fine but at the time it was like a you know when you're twenty one twenty two and realizing I like that you'll making people redundant it's actually really hard to stomach because you realize at that point that people hate you and I kind of when I started to run my own businesses businesses on. I realized that if just course this is just part of the journey going as a business owner having to make those really tough decisions kind of hiring and firing people and one of the the things which one of a mentor of mine said this really stuck with me for the United again from the very early on in my business career he said you need to highest level and five so people aren't performing properly. They're things that coming along through replacement then adopting you kind of need to get them out of business because typically the people of the most expensive business but the rules are the most important part of the business and I had this moment I realized I should work for that company and things weren't going well. Ten were wise. But I just wasn't enjoying it. I realized I shot a Graham changing. Take that piece of knowledge. And that's at my marketing business and see thousand four and I'd won so at that point I wanted to roam my marketing business. It'd be big enough. I the hiring people instead of having to find them. Got It so obviously over your career. You've had many things that you've had to overcome. Do you have a methodology analogy or a method to how you overcome challenges me. It's always been about having somebody to because if you try and deal with a lot of this stuff and business on the Rhine. I mean like you're dealing with things that you don't have experience in dealing with this. I have a mental or coach. Who got your back? You know no matter what when the irrespective irrespective of whether you're paying them or not like it's super important you have people around you who understand business because businesses we live in a day and age. Actually where the ten sometimes number businesses that were like the star of the Internet age so here in the UK. I think we had about half million businesses in the guy at the door of the night. Now there's six million serpent comes into business thinking it's super easy to get business. Stuff is a global marketplace clients your fingertips dot she ten number people. Doing whatever your listeners do are you right now. Which means it ten times to get found and so for me? It's always once you have those little moments of realization actually business. It's pretty tough. And you've got my support network around you so that when things do get haunt the wheels fall off and you can. You can go Nassir bit of advice. That's when the magic happens has a great offer. You probably read the book. Thinking Rich Rich Hill only talks about and there is about the mastermind effect and having groups of knowledgeable. People around you. Ron could work all this stuff out on your because you you're working out and you're conventionally but it's much easier if you can do a bit foster

Thank God that it was an awkward which is Great. It's coming back home. Maybe anyway. It's our year twenty nineteen year. I always like is just reminder. -Til out there sometimes conversations conversations don't have to be that complicated. Yo you know what I mean especially with dudes to be honest.

I hate that hate hate that lake. That sort of marced yet forced lake. I don't know just like a weird humor. Yeah Weird Humor you. We had our you everything good good good cut. We asked the we as the group what we what we should talk about for the Intros and there was a suggestion a suggestion into the books we've read this year our favorite books that have really impacted us or Ben thought-provoking or interesting and so we are excited to talk about that in this intro throw Ya and my reading pattern I've learned and now accept is that I can't really sit for hours on end and read. It's not but I have friends who do and I'm among little jealous. You know where I finished his book. Today I started at this morning. I took out of House Harry Potter. I wish I wish I had that. I don't know if it's attention attention span or what so my styles just I'm able to pick it up. Open read for twenty minutes an that's up for the day. I think the books that I'm reading now now. Don't really allow me to to do that because most are self help rea- so I need to take one bet absorb it digestion and that's actually really early in this I was listening to this podcast. I forget the name of it but the person was talking about how you really learn and you should really be able to process and digest the information in order to make it applicable so it's not like plowing through everything just to get it done. It's really absorbing it right. Yeah I can start I have like I had this random one suggested to me recently by my therapist but and she gave it to me women who run with the Wolves Nice heard of that myths and stories of the wild woman archetype and I wanna read from the back that just gives a really good idea of what the says within every woman their lives a powerful force filled with good instincts passionate creativity and angels knowing she the wild woman who represents the instinctual nature of women but she is an endangered species in this book. Thus doctor stays unfolds rich intercultural miss myths fairy tales and stories many from our family to help women reconnect with the fierce healthy visionary attributes of this instincts nature so basically like we. I've lost this like we are condition not to be wild woman to tap into her to be her to really express her so it's a a really nice digestible. I just read one story like every day and I didn't think I would story is to be completely honest. I'm like Oh myths and stories. He's you don't even then I'm like Oh. This reminds me of college. Were breeding of Odysseus. I don't really know but it's great it. Like Kinda puts you in that you know Dreamworld of Oh this. This is something I feel very deep. Deep inside of me and I'm really unable to express this and like why I love that I really I really liked being untamed women y'all and then for for work. I just dip into Brunei Brown's dare to lead every night for a few pages brave work tough conversations and whole hearts so it's really coming from a heart centered that took place when you lead and what's been really helpful as how those hard conversations and so much bad is through wilner ability so much of that is through a setting expectations so much of that is being honest. You know being honest. When maybe you don't know or when you fuck up up your team if you have a team respects you more and there is more interconnectedness and the full goal or the the overall goal so I really I love Bernie? She's she's the best so even if you're not managing a team if you're managing a family oh you know a lot of different social construct sandwich that same structure or prescription. She prescribed works I completely agree. I'm talk. I'm excited to see that I actually haven't read it. Yeah that's really good and then I always have my. I've mentioned this on the podcast before but my ask your guides by chicks chocolate coat coach. Shit now. I read this romance novel. I notice it looks like our own Ken. This is connected to your divine support it systems so she really gives you a set by subway. Then it gets deeper as you go along to connect your spirit guides to your writing dear guides to do you know different types of guides so it's really cool and you do a little experiments along the way in it fucking works the all who's the the author for that one. Sonia Coach Coquette C. H. O. Q. U. E. T. T. e. she also trust or vibes at this one's. Real Rogan love that she got to work one works spiritual or and then like a story time where he time one love that that's great correct so I actually plowed through all love Janine roths books this year I needed dig in. I have read anything so Janine Roth is she talks a lot about the emotional relationship chip and familial relationship that we have with food our relationship with food and I really love her approach. She's been really inspirational for me and a few other people people that were very close to yet simkin who's been on the podcast Janet Cabreja who's been on the podcast so I read all of her books. when food is Love Women Food in God when you're eating at the fridge pull a chair emotional eating or breaking free from emotional eating and there was just a bunch of them and there's actually one that was a workbook that I didn't. I didn't do but an end to be to be completely honest. I think if you just read woman food and God or when food is love. You'll be good you could you could explore the other ones about it because I feel like sometimes there is redundancy. You know when I read all of them. At the same time it was really beautiful to kind of explore the ways in which I could could see how my eating patterns within my life and with my childhood came to play with my relationship with my family with my mom and my dad and everything like that so so it's really informational. It's it's not like a diet broke. It doesn't really tell you how to eat when to eat or anything like that. It just helps you to really analyze and look at your relationship with with food and what food means for you and your life is food. Intimacy is food. Love is food. Freedom is food and escape. Whatever food is for you. It helps you really understand that and then works through that in a really beautiful way so interesting about that like is intimacy. Is it freedom as an escape. Yeah it's interesting. I know it's like so they describe each one and then deciders like a little quiz or not. West but CERNAN yeah. That's really just how I kind of thought it so in there is different ways and relationships that it is described but that's kind of the way that I gathered that information information yeah expand the ways that works cool but yeah it's really good and I would highly recommend for anyone that has binge eating. You know anything related. Did you any food issues where they would like to better understand why they do what they do as relates to food so that was really good. That's Janine Roth. I'm hopeful to have her the podcast and then I just I actually reading Graham handcocks new book America before INS about new discoveries discoveries as it relates to findings archaeological findings and historical findings that they've discovered in north and South America in the recent twenty years I and it kind of goes against the fact that we believe that we are the most advanced civilization civilization to exist today and it speaks to the fact that there were most likely more advanced civilizations than us that existed in the Americas in previous times and it talked about about a global cataclysm that ended the last ice age and how there was people living before us that were more advanced and had better technology than we do so it's really beautiful and it's just really interesting and and really thought provoking and I really love grandma handcock. I think he's an amazing person. I think he's so well-spoken and it's it's interesting seem to think about and talk about and with that. It's kind of like a fun oftentimes what I'm looking for in books as something to better understand myself but more you're so I'm always looking for information. That's interesting conversations. I want to be always thinking of new things. I want to always be bringing new information to the table. Whether it's a podcast with friends with my relationship it's really important that I remain dynamic in that way and I'm learning something new so great man Cox books are really good for that and Graham was also on the Joe Rogan podcast cast so you can hear that podcast episode and he talks a lot about it so if you want a teaser to the information from his book you can look look there and then I actually got recommended commended this book by a friend 'cause I'm looking for more information about the history of race relations in America and and how I can go deeper and that now I can learn more about that

It's like why you're if you with these your actual convictions, and you feel so strongly about the sanctity of marriage rice, but also money gets involved. Oh, it's so funny.

So it was just this is all just about his own fuck and gilts. That's all this is. Also, he he said in the same statement that Brunei will or suggested that Brunei will ratify the United Nations convention against torture, which is a big deal. And by the way, are you ready for this title? Commonwealth secretary general Baroness this woman who I guess is the United Nations common secretary general Baroness. I don't know what any of she said she said I've been in contact with the government or ni- both before and after April third strongly to reconsider the implementation of these parsh- punishments. Delighted the death penalty's been removed and the defacto moratorium on the death penalty will also cover the SPCA. Oh, however, other punishments under the SPCA oh include amputation and flogging. So they do believe still invitation of why by cutting cutting your hand like punishment Old Testament Oko. Yeah. Again, my classic saying if you're gonna fucking live by the rules of the of the old times, you don't get to use a fucking iphone. Right. So so basic Brunei went to Sultan went from saying death penalty for Sodomites. Essentially to then saying it'll be very rare. If we execute a gay person just so you guys now for gay sex won't happen. It won't be a common thing to the woman are just going to get light beatings to no death penalty. Again. That's a win a big deal. To keep pressure on this guy. Keep bankrupting his business because obviously that works, and I'm telling you, this is the saddest part of all to me.

But do you think that this is a good opportunity, and maybe just hear me out for a second? But for you to start your own airline. They're very easy to start. You know, I hadn't thought of it. Yeah. Because I mean that then you can build your own fancy be your own fancy. Yes. You know, build your own fancy I'm going to build the most expensive airline in the world. But I'm gonna decide. No. It's just going to be really to be. No, I don't want any people should be on roller skates. So you can like win the plane rolls around you just kinda roll. Yeah. You know? That's a great idea..
Brunei, George Clooney And Syria discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"Sultan of Brunei has backed down on plans to enforce laws that would have punished adultery enga- sex with stoning to death on Sunday. He extended. Moratorium on the death penalty to cover the new legislation. Well, the sultan's you tone for those a global outcry over the north which included protests by ADA celebrities Elton, John and George Clooney who called for a boycott of luxury hotels owned by Brunei. We'll let the death penalty is still on the statute books. Certain crimes. No executions have been carried out in Brunei since nineteen fifty seven, and Michael I guess that. There's something rather ironic about these laws because they will part of general phasing in given that the sultans family had a reputation for being pretty wild in terms. It's lifestyle, particularly his brother here. Here. I was surprised when the one never hears about Brunei much, except when they pay for some stars to go out. And celebrate somebody's birthday in some insanely huge palace. So I was surprised to hear this. And because you know, I tend to pay attention to Syria rather than Brunei. I mean, perhaps there's some political dynamic that led him to do this that to keep more conservative elements in his Muslim population. Happy says, okay. Well, we'll we'll stone. We'll stone them to death. We'll stone homosexuals to debt. And then he gets the other side of it, which is global backlash against a country that you know, trying to be part of the global conversation, and perhaps a place where people go to visit.

"Well, and you talked about celebs. Heavy celeb- heavy standing up for something. I'm not gonna talk about this for too long because I think the story's pretty familiar at this point. But George Clooney brought up once again Bush say once again because the law is newer than it was, but sort of talked about the atrocities going on and Brunei and about the Sultan of Brunei who by the way. Many times someone who I would love to know this fiscal longtime ago at one point he was abalon Perez Perez and at one point, and maybe he's still is the richest person in the world. And I just thought like, well, that's a character. That of course, it'd be friends with the Solta Brunei Milan Peres, but first of all might we we haven't heard from a law in a long time. I don't know where the road Milanez, but it's no longer now as Sma Ma Peres, but is no longer con- speaking with the sultana Brunei or staying there at his palace. Oh, good. So you're telling me belonged Peres reads, a newspaper. That's another question. That's another mystery. So for those who don't know Brunei, which is very small monarchy in southeast Asia that has a ton of money out of west just using slave. Probably I I'm not exactly or they must have a lot of resources. They're like, I don't know if they have oil or I don't know. But. That's where maybe that's where they they came up with the formula for Lemaire. I don't know they have a little man. A lot of money. Well, there's a new Russia. Bo bar, whatever examine Lemaire Lemaire. That's right there. Oh rochet. Is that what it Rochet for rare Ochej job this little chocolate Vereshak? Bob wa. Sounds nice though. So I there is a new law there that has horrible corporal punishment. Where gay men can be stoned to death lesbians can be flogged adulterers can also be stoned to death and thieves will lose their right hand. And also, they're left so Hammurabi. I don't know what that Hammurabi is eye for an eye. He started hyper night. Maybe. Yes. So corporal, punishment was predominantly used and is in the bible and is in the Koran and is in all these things mostly because like the weren't enough prisons yet. You know, what I mean, people weren't being sent to jail for crimes. It's it's bad. It was sort of like, no, no, you're going to be punished this way because we don't have a jail system or be our jails are crowded, it's not listen. There are plenty of countries where being gay is is criminalized, but to be stoned to death in for that to be law. Like impract- is now is absolutely outrageous and the Sultan of Brunei.

"On in Brunei? Brunei already has sharia law, but they didn't go all the way injury law. I guess it's sharia law liked, and they they actually had tried a few years ago to go all in on sharia law, and there was a backlash from human rights activists and international backlash even the Beverly Hills hotel, evidently is owned by people in Brunei. And so there was a boycott that was going to go on that. So they backed off. But now they're not backing off anymore. So they're going full sharia law and out of the Daily Mail, gay sex and adultery will be punishable by stoning to death. Wait, wait. Can you check and see what year? This is somebody run that down for me. Gay sex and adultery will be punishable by stoning to death. But remember, you can't see anything wrong about their culture because everybody's culture is equal. I mean, who are you Mr. ethnocentric, you think America culture is better than the culture Brunei that's just because of your American century views. Just because of maybe we need to check with vice president Biden and see if this is, you know, if this is better than the white man culture that he's saying we've got to change because you know, obviously every cultures equal. No, every culture is not equal. Okay. A culture that says, we should stoned to death people who have gay sex and adultery is not as good as our culture is. How'd you can't say that? You must be Slama phobic. No. I don't think I want to ask you about. Why is it that if you say that this is wrong, you're islamophobic? But if you want to shut down a Chick-fil-A because the CEO is Christian and said that he believes in biblical marriage that it's totally okay to rip into his culture. But how dare you saying anything about this culture? The really are those evil Christians because you know, they hate homosexuals you in the background. Yes. I I tend to remember that actually in Christianity. It says you love everyone. But they just say that homosexuality is a sin like any other said, well, that's still just as bad. That's as bad as stoning people to death now pretty much. Yeah. Gay Sexton adultery will be punishable by stoning to death in Brunei. And if you're caught stealing you will have your hand amputated. I can't make this stuff up. Brunei already has sharia law with oversexed reality punishable right now with ten years in jail. Under the new laws starting next week gay people could be whipped or stoned to death. And adultery sodomy. Rape. You can also be put to death. The new penalty for theft amputation of the right hand for a first offense. What if you're left handed? I dunno and the left foot for a second offense. Oh, then you they're trying to balance it out. Right. It's kind of like dole. It's I think they call it the stealing hokey pokey. We cut your right hand off we cut your left foot off. We get your right hand up. And then we shake it all about the new penalties. Also apply to children what? Yes. The new penalties. Also apply to children. So if a kid steals a piece of candy, they're gonna cut his hand off. What exactly do you have to steal the have your hand cut off? The new penalties. Also apply to children in new sections under Brunei sharia, penal code and will come into effect, April three. Remember, you are not allowed to say anything about this culture. All cultures are equal. In two thousand fifteen Brunei band, excessive Christmas celebrations for free of the Muslims. Could be led astray is we would hate to lead them astray from stoning and whipping gay people to death. I mean, you don't want to you know. I don't want to take him down the wrong path. Eight hundred eighty one eighty nine ninety nine get you onboard eight hundred eighty one eighty nine ninety nine and did you see what's going on with the ratings on cable television? Fox News is killing it. CNN MSNBC are getting killed. So the mullahs report gets dumped on Friday night. Bar looks it over and gets out his summary over the weekend Monday is the first time to really look at what it's gonna do to cable news ratings special report with Bret Baier, which by the way, I think is probably the best cable news show out there. If you're gonna watch one cable new show watch prepare, I watch it every night because to me the news part of it about the first forty minutes is is is the best out there on cable news where it's actual news. And then the last twenty minutes is actual opinion. And they you know, they tell you. So, you know, which is which so Bret Baier average two point three million viewers three hundred sixty four thousand key demo of twenty five fifty four. These are all Nielsen numbers and mess NBC one point seven million. CNN one million. From five to eleven PM, Monday night, FOX averaged two point five million MSNBC two million CNN under one million. In fact. The entire primetime lineup for Fox News reached three point three million CNN and MSNBC combined for two point six million. That's during primetime. So Fox News was beating CNN and MSNBC combined for all the prime time, Rachel, Maddow. She lost five hundred thousand viewers from last Monday Monday to Monday. Then she lost another two hundred thousand Tuesday night. Oh boy. Could it be because maybe people are saying wait a second. You hide to us. We didn't really live. We just didn't. No, no, no, no. You look back over that those shows and they lie, but hey, I'm sure that's not what it really is CNN's, Brian Stelter? Has a newsletter called reliable sources and Wednesday night. He wrote in his newsletter, the viewers are tuning into CNN and MSNBC is much because you ready. Quote. There hasn't been much news. There hasn't been much news since the Muller report was delivered. You know? I mean, there just hasn't been that much news. It's a slow news week. And Fox News wasn't hurt by it because they're they're celebrating over there. So that's why there hasn't been much news jussie smollet, which we're gonna get to very soon. The Trump administration saying it's time to totally get rid of ObamaCare through the courts because it's unconstitutional Russians going into Venezuela. The vote on the green new deal.

So I don't I mean, that's what's really going on anybody buying that. Meanwhile, Rasmussen has out the latest daily presidential tracking poll, they got Trump at fifty percent approval from likely voters thirty seven percent strongly approve of his job, but forty-one percent strongly disapprove. So he's still got more strongly disapproving. But he is a fifty percent similar to wear. Obama was during this time and his presidency. That's got to be driving. The Democrats crazy. This guy can win. We can have four more years. No. That's why Biden's over there. Apologizing for being white hoping you can win the primary because right now, he's beating. Trump. Where did I see that? Oh, I know what it was. It was the Fox News poll. Yeah. I got the right now if we had an election today, and it was Joe Biden versus President Trump. Then Trump would win. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. Apologize Biden would win. It's pretty big news. Isn't it? If there was an election held today. And it was Trump versus Bernie Sanders. According to the Fox News poll Bernie would win. Oh, man. What do you do about that? Well, part of it is that we're way early still. And when you're the president everybody's looking at everything you're doing these other guys right now are getting ready to run, and we're not really looking at everything. But it's you know, that's not great. Of course, according to those polls he didn't have a chance to beat Hillary Clinton either. So sometimes it's not always what you see in the polls. Meanwhile, President Trump wants to declassify documents related to the FBI and Pfizer, and we're going to get into that as well. Because he he was on FOX last night. And he was all over the place. I'm going after these guys Devin Nunes says says he's sending a criminal referral to department of Justice over this whole Russian collusion investigation. He's the house intelligence committee ranking member not the majority of member anymore. But the ranking member Devin Nunes, Republican California going to send a criminal referral next week to the Justice department, it will detail multiple referrals a number of different crimes, including leaking classified information. And he said that after this invested the special counsel investigation found Trump did not collude with Russia quote. We knew this was a joke from the beginning. I've said as much for a long time, basically from the time our report came out. But now the real work begins. It's good to not have that sitting out there. But we have to go on the offense and track down. All these dirty cops and bad players. All right now, I've got another question for you. Did you see Joe Biden going out there on his white man apology tour? Here's what he said. Here's here's just exactly what he said quote talking about the Anita hill situation. Remember what Anita hill and Clarence Thomas Anita hill at accused him of sexual harassment in the workplace. This was way back when this was still a relatively new thing in the public eye, and Joe Biden was in charge of those hearings. And Joe Biden said I wish I could have done something saying that she was mistreated to this day. I regret I couldn't come up with a way to give her the kind of hearing. She deserved. Joe Biden was the guy that was up there saying to the other members of the investigative committee or the judiciary committee, excuse me. That any questions that they had to ask her. We're okay. Any questions to ask her to make sure she was a credible witness? We're okay. He was the guy setting the entire situation up. And now he's acted. Oh, I wish I could have done something to this day. I regret I couldn't come up with a way to give her the kind of hearing. She deserved which would have been what you don't ask any questions at all that Clarence Thomas guilty until proven innocent kind of like what they tried to do cavenaugh. Then Biden goes on to talk about domestic violence in the early nineteen hundreds. And how it's really one thing was to blame for that. One thing..

I you know, I paragraph ROY there. Yeah. Even had to do any work. And also the photograph credits the photograph credits. Exactly the photo really at writes it. So if you right the guy's name down copy and paste it into the into the into the photo captions, you pretty much reached you would count in owner of that. I am going to have a crack at this majesty Sultan, Haji hustle bowl was a dean, what do the aluminum Sultan Haji, Omar, Ali Sopher Deion. There'll be a short test afterwards, Sadhil curry Sultan and young put one of Brunei Darussalam. Exactly one personal to one really. Rose. Clearly that that is outstanding. Yeah. Does the does the nine page of his passport sort of have two fold out to get the mole on the Brunei? Brunei to possible. Anyway, they've got round to pas writing his name down. What's the story?

"Of enjoy Brunei's experience when he walks in the door. He focuses on the service I because eventually they catch onto the fact that it's him and the whole tone of the whole thing changes. I mean, it was a fasten experience to watch Frank. Do his thing. We went to Dell postal when it was first opening up, does the times still have as much power in the restaurant world is as they used to have and what's it like for you when wells came to review the restaurant? Is that something that you're deeply concerned about it? He just sit there and go. I got a job to do the best I can and you got a good review. Yeah, yeah, it was. It was a very good view. Yes, it was a good review. It was a very interesting to Jewish in I, it was a weird thing where he gave us a lot of time. He had reviewed friends of mines restaurants that had open months after hours before hours. And it was a weird thing where I was like, okay, he's actually the giving us time to like figure it out. And to answer the New York Times still has the day that review came out. We got is significant reservations. It's still has a stream power in the restaurant industry. If at random people I've never even met, come up to me John George between the farmers market was like the best if you ever want a still think everyone reads it, especially in New York, and it has that kind of power to legitimize restaurant. And I think that was the thing that an Israeli didn't think about when he was coming mostly what it was when who's coming was how cleaned the bathroom was and how quickly his things are getting cleared and everything was going on. And obviously once he's there, there's nothing you do. You're gonna serve the food that you're gonna serve everyone else and have to have. That sort of confidence with it. But the thing that I actually personally made like about the review was he said exactly what we are, which is yes. You've read about me for seven years, whatever. But this is a new restaurant that has room to grow that is super ambitious, but hasn't figured out yet. And like it gave this sort of feeling to even the entire Russia community. Like I've had chefs talk to me in a very different way after that came out about like he gave everyone a reason to root for this restaurant, not because it's like, oh, fuck these guys because they just immediately opened and we're perfect. But because the New York Times saw that. You're very aspirated, but it's real. It's not like I'm a little wonder kid that was surrounded by all the money had the most expensive everything to do everything perfectly. He's uh, that we wanted to go to very different route from that and go very small kind of kind of reset the clock on all the low reside. I mean, there's a lot of factors to it. I'd known the people who had the space before, so it came in a very natural way. The timing of it was very natural. But also, I mean. I been living in New York for almost four years now, and I lived in Brooklyn when I first moved there. I lived in the west village and it really truly felt a sort of sense of community and like neighborhood until I moved to Lower East Side. And I think it's sort of a pit him is exactly what we wanted from a restaurant of like. There are some very nice things down there. There's still a little bit of grit to it still has like this sort of yearning for old New York that like my own. My mom lived in New York would tell me stories about New York in the eighties and all these things are the reason when your kid and you're hearing all these crazy stories about what the city was like that you want to move there and then you move there and it's just like Dwayne Reade on every corner. And then it's not a New York. There's been overrun by speculative real estate deal. And I think the Lower East Side is not. It's not immune to that whatsoever..
