What did you learn from reporting napa. That maybe informed. This book didn't just inform this book and led to this book. The premise of the fifth risk was that. Stop thinking about the federal government. However you think about it if you think about it and think about it. As a manager of a portfolio of risks many of them existential that has been left to degrade and under the trump administration was actually kinda bashed around the head. A bunch and one of those risks is the risk of pandemic disease. The fifth risk was asking the question. What happens if people neglect these risks and actually spent more of more of the time just pointing out the risks. That i won didn't really know existed that you could go into any department any agency in the government. The commerce department the agriculture department departments that you think maybe they don't do very much and find just terrifying things. They're managing so.

European Commission Unveils Plan to Tackle Foreign Subsidies

"It block deals with foreign companies if those companies get unfair subsidies from their governments. You don't have to read too terribly closely between the lines to see the EU was talking about China here as the global search for leverage over the world's second biggest economy. Seems to be waning event marketplaces to replenish or has that one European leaders are increasingly worried that China's state heavy economic system is threatening their own companies. James Lewis is with the Center for Strategic and International Studies. He says China and Europe have a history here about a decade ago. The Chinese through a combination of industrial has been nauseous and economies of scale from the local market and huge government subsidies, basically ate the solar panel market and drove the Europeans out of the business. Europe's new rules are trying to level the economic playing field. Concern over human rights is another factor. Other governments also concerned President Biden is reportedly circulating proposals targeting China. The G seven summit David Dollar is with the Brookings Institution. We and the Europeans we can control who invest in our economy Who's able to do mergers and acquisitions in our economy that there lots of other areas where we just do not have any leverage. Anything that China does within its territory from subsidies to human rights is probably out of reach, he says Jennifer Hillman with the Council on Foreign Relations. Says China's growing influence as an investor and infrastructure through its international belt and road initiative has made it harder for some countries to confront him. And Hillman says the U. S is partly to blame. It's very hard when we're going around the world telling everyone don't use wall weighs five G when we do not have a five G alternative to offer we're concerned about the degree to which China is building all of this high speed rail around the world, but we do not have a high speed rail alternative to offer.

"government" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government

"Sometimes you live by the sword and you die by that same sort up similarly if you wanna talk about living by sort and dime by sort obsessing over hunter biden as i mentioned a little bit earlier here. I don't think impeachment is what doomed donald trump. He got impeached in january. Yes when he got impeached over. Fifty percent supported not only his impeachment but removal from office. And if you want to add in the percentage of people who think that just impeachment alone is removable from office. A lot of people thought donald trump was doing pretty darn bad job and they thought something was up with strong arming ukrainian government and to that point I was reading today. that the ukrainian government is shutting down a probe that they had going on into hundred biden and it sure looks like that probe was started because it was strong armed by people probably in the united states federal government in the united states. I don't think it's an accident that probe into one hundred biden done by the ukrainian government is being sunset right now Just a couple of weeks after the election seems settled. Actually a few days after the election seems settled the current governments hedging their bets. Here you never know tra my comeback you never know but obsessing over hundred yeah it got him impeached and it was enough to finally break the day on the feckless democrats who were sitting by and letting things like the mola report go by and not impeach. Donald trump letting reports of children being separated from their families. Go by and not doing anything about it. We were seeing that. The new figures are up. It's over six hundred. Children separated from their families. Real human rights abuses doing nothing about it real people real people and you can talk about any number of other that have gone by that. The democrats chose not to impeach. Oh for a and they are continuing to take a. Don't impeach temperament going into this. Lame duck session here which is in certain ways enabling donald trump but the one thing that they did get their resolve up to his when you went after dear joe biden when they went after joe biden their future. President they rallied and they impeach donald trump. And that didn't help him. And then the crazy part of this is that trump and his people didn't stop trying to pursue dirt on hunter biden. They continue to pursue it all the way into october. Well after the realities of the american situation had changed we went from being able to go out and party on new year's eve in two thousand nineteen to having to wear a mask to go vote and they were still talking about hunter biden instead of thinking about the coronavirus and the pandemic which gets me to my next point. A big reason why. Donald trump loss Perhaps if you wanna just attributed to any one thing if he does this he probably wins not getting a second stimulus past particularly going into october of twenty twenty i get on a strategic level if not an economic or just human decency level not getting. A second stimulus passed sooner but not getting. It passed in october. Made him look like he was ineffectual. And not a strong leader a thing that we have seen from republican respondents is really important to them when they are looking for a president or not like the democrats looking for unity. Republican voters and independent minded voters. Who might swing one way or another. Who colleague shorter. Republicans not really republicans. They're looking for strength. Trump's inability to get a second stimulus past exhibited weakness his disinterest to getting a second stimulus past exhibited weakness mark. Who now has the crow virus coming out and saying that we are not going to contain the virus rather in addition to being foreshadowing for for what would happen in his own life is yet another exhibition of weakness and if trump had shown that he can get nancy pelosi and mitch mcconnell to people who like people don't have deep love for inner room. Bang those heads together and get something good to happen and oh by the way that something good is coming into your wallet and maybe makes it easier for you to pay rent this month. That changes things. Not as many people go out on vote on election day for the democratic alternative candidate to the republican incumbent. I just think that that's a fact of life. And the democrats needed all hands on deck because of trump's turn out here so trump in not getting a stimulus passed in throwing his hands up over cove. Nineteen and the pandemic writ large and the economy writ large serve accepting. Whatever two-thirds recovery the communists made as being sufficient and maybe acknowledging that two-thirds back is still one third down that is donald trump's biggest problem. And then you can also talk about. Donald trump getting cove it in october of twenty twenty. This of course further undermines the case that he had that he was able to be a strong leader on a major pandemic and strong leadership. Again if we are looking at exit polls that have been done so far. Strong leadership is a recurring theme among republican voters. Donald trump does not exhibit himself to be a strong leader when he gets covid nineteen and then he's being secretive about it and he's worried about that strength. We know he's worried about that strength. How do we know he's worried about that strength. We know that he's worried about that strength. Because he needs to go out and dance doing the elliptical thing that he's come up with here young man. Yeah strange song choice. But that's another conversation for another time. He's feeling young. He's doing the elliptical. He knows that he needs to look strong. He knows that getting covid. Nineteen makes him look weak and it makes his administration look weak. The more people in the white house cove nineteen when people get covid. Nineteen at the amy conybeare at ceremony. It looks weak. Can he assuage some of those concerns by getting a stimulus out. Yeah probably probably enough even given the electoral college margins to change the game here but certainly make it look very very different in a much more sober narrow victory for the democrats than what it currently looks like right now You don't look under the hood at the electoral college map. But if trump on the stimulus checks out that changes things another example though of mistakes that donald trump made that were self inflicted. It's just the way he waged this campaign in october. He waged it like he was a losing man. If you think like a loser you lose. I've talked about this a lot with the democrats but trump's are really good example of it this time around. And what do i mean. Think like loser. So he's going to places like michigan and wisconsin ago at off. I lose on. Never come back to this place. And he's put it on the air that he is going to lose the state's maybe he does. Maybe he doesn't. Though some of these margins are really narrow and you watch those rallies they are the rallies of a guy who doesn't want to be there right up to the point where he's even saying some cases he'd never want to be back in some of these places so i think that hurt him and then you talk about omaha almost a really good example. Where talk later about how. The democrats need to be thinking about campaigning. As a battle of districts and battle ground locations and how actions can have an outsized influence..

I want to thank you for doing this because I didn't realize that this was a thing. But what happened is this person gave me a dollar and of that dollar pay pal took thirty three cents.

But I already filed all this paperwork. So here I am. Yeah. I try and figure out with some of these candidates. I start with enough respect for them that like they're not totally delusional. They have the end game. I'm trying to figure out the endgame and with most of them. I think I see it. I mean with swale, well, you have a guy from California Kamala, Harris, if she moves on to bigger and better things, she's not going to be this big voice. And she's already a Senator we know Feinstein's is going to be retiring at some point fairly soon here. So I think this is a ploy to position him as the most well-known likable democrat that could run on the left and be a replacement for Feinstein. I think in the case of molten if Elizabeth Warren ends up winning then there'll be vacant Senate seat that he can access were potentially if not she's fairly old anyway..

"And now you've established him a little bit in the political side because engagement Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia's going to be inhere. Gently political more from Seder? I think I can get Putin to say that at the Moscow press conference, if he says, it we own this election, America's most difficult adversary agreeing that Donald is a good God in a Goshi eight we can own this election. Michael, my next steps are very sensitive with Putin's very very close people. We can pull this off Markle. Let's go to Bush from Brooklyn getting a USA, president elected. This is really good. It was not really good. But it's very interesting that Seder keeps flushing his hand of Russian government context. Russian government context and Cohen is aware of those Russian government contacts Cohen recalled the conversation with Donald Trump in which the candidate suggested that his campaign would be a significant infomerrcial for Trump rented properties. So again, Trump is mixing peanut butter and is chocolate here. A little. Yeah. I'm running a political campaign, but I'm running political campaign. So that more people know, why am so that we have this big infomercial for doing business with don't Trump and maybe convincing in duping some of these despots around the world that the best way to get better relationships with America is to do business with Donald Trump, the non president of the United States in this time line post letter of intent contacts with individuals in Russia, given the size of the Trump Moscow project Felix Stater and Michael Cohen both believed that the project required approval whether express or implicit from the Russian national government, again, your source here is very clearly Michael Cohen, including from the presidential administration of Russia. Seder stated that he therefore began to contact the presidential administration through another Russian business contact. So here this point of collusion. Is Felix Seder someone who is part of Trump world, but it's kind of floating in between Trump world in Russia. World has a Russian business contact that Russian business contact is reaching back to Russia..

"Yeah. Hello again in welcome to a special edition of don't worry about the government. My name is Chris November. Now over the next several episodes. We'll be looking at the mall report in its entirety. We begin on this episode by taking a look at Robert mower synopsis for section one which focuses on collusion collusion being broken into two parts the internet research agency, which we're going to look at today and the hack of the Democratic National Committee, which will look at on the next episode. So let's get right into it. Muller begins in a very laser focused fashion by saying the Russian government interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election in sweeping in systematic fashion. From the report the special counsel's investigation established that Russia interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election principally through to operations. I a Russian entity carried out his social media campaign that favored presidential candidate. Donald J Trump and disparaged presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Second a Russian intelligence service conducted a computer intrusion operation against entities, employee's in volunteers working on the Clinton campaign, and then released stolen documents. The investigation also identified numerous links between the Russian government and the Trump campaign, although the investigation established that the Russian government perceived it would benefit from Trump presidency and worked secure that outcome, and that the Trump campaign expected it would benefit electorally from information stolen and released through Russian efforts. The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities that was from pages one into of the mole report and what Muller did establish although he did not establish criminal conspiracy..

"And that that it was appropriate and all of that. But what he said is. Well, it's not a good thing for president to go attacking the press, or whatever to call press enemies or things like that he goes. But it's a far more dangerous thing for the press to be the government the press to be able to pick and choose winners into have enormous power in aim at at a president this way. Like, I mean, that's that's this fella's a point of view. But you see that point of you out there that well, he, you know, in comparison to a few rude statements or something on the other hand, there's this enormous empire that he's up against that just keeps at here's the proof the reporting bad things about him every day. And then if you if you check with any of those media, let's they're going to say will Ecorse report. Bad things. He's doing things that aren't good where reporting them, you know. So you see the this kind of circle. And there's no way out right? Yeah. Yeah. On a certain level. You know, the press is not supposed to be massaging reality to be in service of the government in power. There's a term for that. It's called propaganda. A but then to put back to the history side of it because we're my history can beat up your politics. There's a long history of Bush war contentious media atmospheres in America than even right now. Now is not exactly a great time for media. But if you go back to the start of the country, there were deeply deeply partisan presses. And you could certainly argue that those deeply partisan presses especially like when you get like, the eighteen eighties eighteen nineties machine politics is really a thing. And you have newspapers that literally identify themselves as the Wisconsin democrat as in. Put up by the Democratic Party, specifically TOA lighted hearing to the Democratic Party. Even then those newspapers only had X amount of influence on the government. So I think when Trump states this case as an emergency, not unlike other emergencies history in the data doesn't necessarily back him up. Yeah. We we got got it. Right. Essentially in that in the whole episode really of that it is dangerous for present to start talking about the press that way, and and I would actually reverse the gentleman's equation that and I probably did in in my response to him. If I remember that. No, I think the the the people who have the power of the people in government have greater responsibility oppressed can can be you know, it's not a good thing. Either. I don't like to see a newspaper just be biased one way or the other or television station. But. But the greater danger to the Republic will, you know, cause hopefully there's a there's a lot of sources the greater danger to the Republic would be someone who's seeking to sort of shut down sources right to shutdown voices. And also the person that possesses the levers of government. So they they have to be watched a, you know, the legal term might be a stricter standard must be applied to to that. So yeah. And that's what I way I see it. But you can you can see where and then also just one last thing to, you know, Donald Trump also took this into places that aren't even related traditional political press. Right. He went after Djamil hill who is a sports journalist. So we're talking about sedition. We're David doesn't really talking about it. It terms of the political president at hope that there wouldn't be much debate that it's probably improper for Eddie government official to be calling for the resignation of a sports journalist. But there is on that side of things there is criticism. They do. Go after people who are Trump supporters say Google after SPN for being a little bit too big for for adding politics into the coverage, and for generally, you know, putting putting on more more liberal political voices. Look, that's. Footballs under politics in a big way after Trump became president in with the flag salutes and things like that on. So it's it's become a light this contributed that to that as well. So I mean again, so if we're looking at this there's an interplay here to why are we talking so much Trumpy news on ESPN? Well, that's because Trump has inserted himself into the football conversation..

"And moreover der passes company is actually a source of debate on congressional level and between the congress and the president over the last two years here, and it was certainly something that was on the mind of the Russian government as the American government was moving into their elections in two thousand sixteen they wanted to figure out who is going to be the best person to get a transaction on that. Would it be Hillary Clinton who has had an adversarial relationship with Russia?

And over the way, I have compromising information on you from the campaign and also our years of business dealings.

"Get one or two of them over here on the everybody side from time to time not saying never see those on the side.

And that is how you help support the show doing things like going on the road eventually, but in the interim paying for server space in keeping the lights on don't worry about the government does. Incur expenses, all of these things cost money, unfortunately. But I wanna talk a little bit about the Michael Cohen hearing. I was very interesting hearing the first thing you got to remember going into it is that muck Cohen could not talk about any of the ongoing investigations into Donald Trump that he is involved with and I believe it less count there. Eighteen different investigations into Trump slush from be things. Whether it's the Trump organization, Donald Trump the man himself or Trump and his relationship with Russia. Anything Trump about eighteen different investigations. And cone was instructed specifically not to talk about SDN y stuff, although he did actually spill the beans on something whoopsie Dipsy that there's a lot to keep track of who could be that mad at Michael Cohen. But that was new information. Andy also couldn't talk about anything involving the Mola pro. So with. All of those copy of front to me. It's remarkable. How much new information we got the didn't touch any of the other ongoing inquiries. So we have some more light stuff. But I think things that are interesting. For example, this note about deutchebanks one Trump has had relationships Deutsche Bank. There has been seizing of Deutsche Bank records by the US government. And a lot of people suspect that has something to do with the Trump organization. Maybe Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Don, jR, someone in that orbit and he gave Georgia Bank his tax records from twenty eleven through twenty thirteen to inquire about a loan to buy the Buffalo Bills. And he also gave those same records to Forbes. I think what's really interesting about these exhibits that ended up Michael Coen's testimony. And this is something we didn't know on that day. But we now know from reporting. In Vanity Fair of all places is that Michael Cohen decided that he needed to get all this documentation, and all these exhibits and all of the evidence to back up everything he said before congress, and it was very effective because by the Washington Post math. I believe the Republicans only spent about eight percent of their time actually, attacking the narrative and the information and the exhibits that Michael Cohen presented. So I consider that a pretty effective use of evidence muggle Cohen decided to get this evidence by watching television news and seeing that they were going to attack him and say that he was a liar. And that the whole idea was going to be how can you believe him and Mike Cohen said upfront and his opening statement. You don't have to believe me just look at the documents for yourself that was very very clever of Michael Owens part. And I thought that Michael Cohen on balance. Extraordinarily effective witness one because he wants to be there any wants to give the information to all the Democrats doesn't matter. If Jackie speier, rollock Zandro Cossio Cortes Cohen is there to give you information. He was there to help. And the other thing was when the Republicans were trying to intimidate him. They finally met their magic Michael code at. There was this moment of recognition in Michael Cohen's..

I mean, the government can change what defines healthy. And then you're not actually doing anything with that. And ensuring universal access really just means that there's stores all over the place. So in most cases, there are stores over the. Place. But there are places where there are desert's. That's a real thing that should be a standalone Bill, especially to address food desert's a lot. We're there are food desert's those are very targeted and localized places. That's actually a really nice way to build together coalition of representatives, especially if you're talking about addressing the food desert in their district. You'll get a lot of Representative support behind that amd by partisan Representative support behind that. If it's about addressing food deserts, and it's not devicive. It's very targeted smaller is better, especially on that thing. And then we get into removing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. Good, maybe we can get those Harvard and Neo guys who said that they were going to pump other gases into the atmosphere to fix the other gases that are in the atmosphere that seems a good idea and removing greenhouse gases pollution from the air. Yes of we need to do something about that. But removing greenhouse gases from the. Global atmospheres pretty fucking ambitious from one nation. Let alone as item number ten in our green new deal, then we get into the mitigation in management of long term, health, economic and other effects of pollution and climate change. Whoa. Do we just open up a healthcare leg of this?

"Of course, I'm favor of retraining and all these things, but but to go so far as to say, it is the duty. For the government to create good in high wage jobs. I don't know about that. I certainly all government jobs that you're getting government. They should be good. They should be high wage and have good benefits, but the government's duty to create a bunch of jobs for all of us to have another one is invest in the infrastructure for the twenty first century. I'm in favor of that. Actually, I think that's sort of much less. Controversial Kloss, right? Like the government in the twentieth century did the interstate roads project in and we have had a long discussion going all the way back to the nineteen hundreds. I was doing research for Bruce Carlson, and I was looking at the whig initiatives in the debates with the Jacksonians eighteen forty going all the way back to the nineteenth century. There is this believe that the US federal government should be investing in the infrastructure for the twenty first century well for century at that point the nineteenth century and then the twentieth century. But this is something that has been a long held belief. And then this last clause. It is the duty of the federal government to promote Justice and equality by stopping current preventing future and repairing historic oppressions of indigenous peoples communities of color, migrant communities deindustrialized communities deposited rural areas. The poor low income workers women the elderly the une housed people with disabilities and youth. Wow. That's a lot. And somewhere towards the end of that lists I stopped being able to figure out where the through line is to the green new deal, which is about climate change. And this is the problem. Right. So before we even get into the requirements of the falling projects that is just the articulation of what is the duty of the federal government to do in order to combat the polar ice caps melting. I am in favour of getting rid of greenhouse gases cleaning up the ocean cleaning up the river figuring out what we're doing about animal operations Howard, doing industrialized agriculture all of these things are very complicated things, but to tack on at the end of this promote Justice in quality for all this laundry list of people. I I'm not gonna read it all again, but we got one too. Two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven different groups in that lodger lists. That are supposed to be connected back to climate change people with disabilities. Should we be doing something for them? Absolutely. What do people with disabilities have to do with climate change? I could go on low income workers. Do I want low income workers to have a livable wage union jobs benefits, be able to support their family? Of course, what do low income workers have to do with climate change directly. So now, we get into the requirements of the Bill what it's looking to do. And that's that's a big goal for the federal government. So it's going to require a lot of projects, and this is part of the problem. Right law should be decoupled. So let's start with the first one. This is just the first bowl point building resiliency against changed related disasters like extreme weather. So here's. The funny thing about whether it comes in many different forms, and this the thing about whether it manifests in many different ways across the country. And so why I being such a jerk because what you need to do if you're going to do something like that. That is one Bill that is like ten bills inside of that one Bill. So that alone would be a standalone because you gotta deal with forest. Fires in California. How are you dealing with drought conditions out there, that's important? What about flooding conditions in the southeast of the country? That is also important. Okay..

"All that is not popular not the way he's doing it. There's a real issue about how this is going to get done who's actually going to execute it whether or not he's gonna fall through on it. And of course, he doesn't wanna look weak on that front, and depending on depending on how this deal was structured up. There would be people internationally Saudi Arabia Turkey other players in the region the series potentially who have phone calls Trump about how this is going to play out. We know Saudi Arabia and Turkey specifically. And if he screws that up that could screw up other things for Donald Trump. So he needs to handle that. So you got the government shutdown. This allows also cue up the debate once again about the wall, so we could get back there and the Democrats have their back against the wall because they've conceded or not conceited. But like they've been left standing at the altar so many times on this wall. The thing to kind of give Trump and optical win. I think actually. Would hurt Nancy Pelosi's power base? And if you want to that would be a legitimate, existential threat to her because now the progressive and stuff could come at her and say, she's not taking care of x y and z, and this would be a very very top of the list of x y and z item. So I think you've got that going on. But I think Trump in in his kind of warped mind also believes that if he does this government shutdown this will distract the Democrats such that they won't be able to investigate him. And perhaps maybe it would even cut off the funding to the special counsel's office. It would also bare minimum the shutdown. Critics smokescreen. We're Matt Whitaker continue to do his Matt Whitaker things. And we don't have to worry about him becoming AG? But where I think there's a fatal flaw in this plan. It actually kind of ties back into pay too is with the economy front of this. So he. He can't stretch on Trump. He kids stretch on this government shutdown forever. Because the longer it goes on the more the economy is going to hurt over it, and that's going to affect markets, and at a certain point, and this could happen, regardless of the government shutdown whenever the government shutdown ends if it goes long enough. I think what we see later on this year is the credit rating agencies showing up and saying, hey, guess what? US? So let's talk about your credit..

"I feel like that would that might be good for the government shutdown. But I I feel like that would be the workout pretty badly for the Democrats broadly. But like what I would sort of wish for in the stronger, Chuck and Nancy fantasy world is like, and this is you know, both. Sort of there's a lot of emotion that that goes into different kinds of emotions that go into this. But one of the few news things that did Pierce bubble on Christmas day was the reports of the children who are dying in detention over the holidays. But the reality that that is happening during this fight. I feel like is. It's gotta have some sort of. It's got to reflect somewhat on the lack of ability to win this wall debate. You know, what I mean like if kids are literally just dying as this like literally as this debate is going on. Not being able to find the moral high ground. I guess they they have the moral high. But like the rhetorical high ground that you need to be able to like just back defenders of keeping the government shutdown over this into a corner. It speaks to I think I don't know if it's like, it's a lack of imagination creativity or or whatever it is to like get get over that home. You know, what I mean like in terms of winning day with the reality sort of being on your side. And it's like, we don't need to be more harsh at the border, right? Like, you should be able to win that argument. We need a fix at the border. We need to have a good immigration system. But what our immigration system? It does not lack for harshness. It does not lack for like, you know, rigor. Yeah. I mean, this gets back to I I kind of always mentally go back to the remember the Democrats during the first sandy hook gun debate. When they did the congressional sin. Right. Yeah. Yeah. That is so much of like my picture of congressional Democrats where they sit in in congress hoping that the lawmakers who they are will do something and even weaker than. They were in that. There was something. Yeah. I mean, at least there was the optics of it. I mean, yes, you were getting these visits to these migrant detention centers. But frankly, I want I don't know fifty seventy of these legislators to be out at these detention centers and force the cameras on this place. They even though they don't have enough legislative power to messily affect the loss in and of themselves. They have enough political power to force this issue the way that Trump forces issues onto the docket and all the time. And it's what is weird to me is I I guess basically like a lack of imagination on a like the left-of-centre coalition, even especially among the democratic establishmentarian where it's like they can't even conceive of changing the debate. We just have to have the debate on what the debates over. No make the debate about the microbes centers. Make them have defend these the I think that that the you're sort of going into that really Chris. Allies something for me. Like, I think that there's too much in this is obviously set a lot. But there's too much deference to the idea of not sinking to Trump's level and not enough sort of realization that you need to be more relentless than Trump. You don't have to sink to his level to be more relentless than he is as much as he is hyping the caravan and all these things and MS thirteen and terrorists coming across could fight holidays.

"Enjoy it. And I'll be back on the other side to talk about what I've been thinking about this week. All right once again, I'm joined by Chris Nova Breen. Oh, and he is joined by Bruce Carlson as we discussed. So where we are. I think we've had these discussions since early twenty sixteen just in terms of the state of play politics, and they've we it's amazing sometimes we've gotten things right other times a little off. But usually usually on course in in the box. And it's quite interesting now here we are post midterms getting ready for those the moment in January where Newhouse takes over and we have a new dynamic in in the Trump presidency. So far the first time that he'll face at least any branch of government that's not under kind of Republican control. So it'll be into an interesting. Test of his presidency. I mean where does one begin? So I think the interesting twist here is that the branch of government that's not under his control that actually poses a real challenge to him is not the house of representatives. Although that will be one in January, but it is presently the southern district of New York who is going full steam ahead on prosecutions because it looks like Donald Trump as a candidate for the president of the United States was directing illegal crimes to be committed on his behalf and SDN y I think is in a very tough position here of the evidence against Donald Trump is so strong that they're going to have to indict him. And I think that pose a real challenge to him. Because a lot of the powers of the president don't go so deep as to local control because of our federal assistance, right? But you're talking about the southern district of New York is a federal as a federal it's under the Justice. Department. I'm why can't he just start firing people until that until that prosecutors fired? I mean, he could I just think at a certain point that becomes politically untenable. And then then citizen solve your problem for the New York AG. Right, right. That's where there are some some issues. But I think New York AG would then get into the federalism in reverse where he would assert. I am the fee would actually assert. No, no, no. Where he in this case, I believe where he would assert. Oh, Trump would I am the federal officer in control of the executive branch of the federal government and state cannot lay claim on me just as of course, I don't think it would be Trump saying this would be a president's lawyer saying so. So. Well, the not the TV lawyer the real lawyer. It would be a Trump lawyer saying this that, you know, just as the federal government has limits when it enters into state perogatives, the state has limits when it enters into federal perogatives on the executive the leader of the executive branch of the federal government. We cannot have a state slowing down the executive branch of the federal government by engaging in, you know, God investigation of the of the chief officer the land and otherwise when the next democrat is elected y'all have Arkansas deciding and in Little Rock somewhere to start to find something about the democratic president and investigate and slow it down. And and what have you one campaign stop where the democrat candidate made? There's an allegation of a crime that has really very little basis in my hypothetical story here. But we'll investigate it for for two years. And and then we want to pursue it indictment because everybody's amped up against the president DC the scenario, I'm laying out there. Yeah. Yeah. It sounds reminiscent of a little thing. I like to call Benghazi, perhaps you've heard of it. So yeah, I think that that's realistic. I mean, all of this. I think goes back to Trump's ill-fated decision before the election to in this. I mean, he's made many kind of curious decisions this year. But, but this is what I think will haunt him to start fighting openly with John Roberts, and the judiciary and bash judiciary because it looks increasingly like what you're spilling out here is that Trump is going to be facing lots of scenarios where there are legal cases that are going to be escalated to the circuit courts and potentially to the.

"Again. Welcome back to don't worry about the government. My name is Chris November. No, the midterms are now in the books had a few days to process the midterms. And it was good to have a few days to process, the midterm because the way the midterms fell to me the night of the election is in fact, a little bit different than the way the mid-terms feel few days out. And that's because the numbers of changed. And there are still some things in flux. It looks like it was a pretty good night for Democrats, and certainly a better night for Democrats than it felt at least to me on election night. So we'll begin with beta or Rourke because obviously I had some emotional investment in Bago aerobic. Look beta came just short in Texas. There are a lot of silver linings here, though, let me break down some other numbers from Texas. So for the governor's race we had Greg Abbott versus Lupe Valez. That was fifty five point eight percent of forty two point five percent for Greg Abbott. So spread of over ten percent for and Rourke. It was fifty point nine percent to forty eight point three percent. That's only two percent difference. Actually, I'm sorry. That's a little bit closer to three percent difference. But you see the difference between Abbott Valdo's versus crews. No rourke. And what that is showing us is that Aurore figured out how to reach Republican voters and more importantly here going to break down. Just a second. How to reach Texans. He won the race with Texans, quite handily. Now, what was really interesting, and where you saw a lot of this movement where the Republicans started to split their ticket because you had people voting for Abbott fifty five percent of them. But there was five percent breaking away from the Republican ticket to. Go and vote for a Rourke. I know my parents were among those people, obviously, you know, trying to nudge them all the way across but look baby steps the Aurore photo. I'm happy to get the Aurora vote. But was interesting as you saw this happening across the suburbs. So for example, in plano, and in calling county, Colin Allred defeated Pete sessions fifty two point two percent to forty five point nine percent. There are in fact, a lot of people who are going through the ballot and voting person by person. So you're seeing people at least around here in Texas beginning to shoot, the concept of straight party voting. And what's interesting to go back to a rock? Now is that breakdown on Texas so CNN as the question of how long have you lived in Texas to over twenty four hundred respondents and among those born in Texas, which was fifty eight percent of respondents fifty one percent of them. Voted for a Rourke and for those who moved to Texas, which was forty two percent of them. Fifty seven percent of them voted for Ted Cruz. So it's interesting because the people who immigrated into the state they in fact, ended up voting Republican now, obviously, they didn't immigrate necessarily for Mexico. I don't think that's the entire people who've Texas or those who would be responded this necessarily be saying. But here you have this indicator of Texans. They actually don't feel like cruise is a Texan. Whereas if you're not from Texas Ted Cruz, maybe sells himself as a Texan to you. Or you are willing to go with that or more likely you moved here for business, and that's why you're voting Republican. So who voted Texas and who didn't vote in Texas. This is my scold to all of my Texan friends. If you're listening to this guy's gotta vote, you gotta vote. So. For Ted Cruz. It's four point two million votes for beta or just over four million, however, seven point four million voters in Texas did not vote they chose to abstain from the election. And there were two point two million who are eligible, but we're not registered which is to say, Texas is very much about ground..

"So in the process of putting together in the name of Confucius, you've become quite a scholar on this propaganda operation. Have you uncovered any other Chinese propaganda or influence operations that they're doing along the same lines as sort of soft power influence, of course, other than even inside education in systems. There's other ways for the China government to to practice their soft power other than Confucius institutes because you can imagine. The universities are doing a lot of exchange program with China. Right. And they will have foreign students go into China and Chinese students coming into American campuses. And remember many of the China? As people like myself are educated in China by the Chinese government. So in our brain, we carry those propaganda. So carry that with felt we have a responsibility to to to protect the image of our motherland. Right. So that's one way out even outside of campus. There are media, and like we know in the newspaper, the Chinese government can buy some inserts. So we know the China Daily, which is main mouthpiece of the Chinese government China. They could buy inserts to have their articles published in a very mainstream American media there one place in particular that came up in the film that I think would catch most people off guard is I alwa- Iowa. I did not know that ping had spent time in Iowa, and that this isn't important part of his mythology. This would be weird to most Americans because we think of Iowa as oh, yeah. That place that has the caucuses every four years, right? That's a very recent example of how. The China's coming can exert their soft power into American actually, there's some more articles criticizing or concerning about the Chinese government's meddling of the American election, which is coming just in a couple of weeks, a belief. Yeah. Okay. Let's talk about that a little bit. We hear that a lot. And for a lot of people, especially in my audience when Donald Trump gets on the microphone and says, oh, they're meddling in my affairs. It doesn't necessarily have the ring of truth because it's coming from a person who has a diplomatic and say a tenuous relationship with the truth. But I think it's a real thing. That's happening. So could you explain to people what that would look like I rate articles on just minutes before our conversation out? I was reading article. Titled how China interferes in U S elections. I haven't finished rating. They're just started, and I can writ. Just one of parallels to you China's powerful influence in CHAI, a US elections as President Donald Trump is alleged, but one will not necessarily find a Chinese intelligence agent agent stuffing ballot boxes in local city hall or tempering with volt in both. The Chinese are to the Chinese are not need those methods, but their immense wealth gives them more sophisticated and effective methods to influence the candidates themselves the business that funk candidate elections. The universities and think tanks are that outsor- the universities and think tanks that higher politicians after they leave office and the Niels media that voters will rely on to choose. Choose their congress members on a member six to eighteen that is a far more powerful network of influence than anything. The Russians may have tried to use in two thousand sixteen. I actually read articles. In Iowa, you mentioning Iowa, right?.

"And I myself was university teacher as back in China before immigrant to Canada. So my main rose, basically indoctrinate. Universities students of the year Chinese governments or namely, the communist party's highly all g in propaganda on. So those are the materials you could find in the Confucius institutes, and they even find a. Catoon cartoon for kids for young kids on their website. The call it's internet Confucius institutes, whoever can learn Chinese from internet. So that cartoon song was was about the Korean war that it says in China way were taught it's not Korean war with we're not saying, it's Korean war. We say. Aggressive aggression of the US aggression to career, and the Chinese were helping the Koreans to defend from the invasion of of the US. So that's how we see Korean war. And that cartoon for kids was a song to educate kids about that part of history of cream war. But of course, it's not called Korean war. Of course. No, it's the Chinese defensive career. That makes sense. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So that's one problem. I found very troubling to us because now I'm Canadian I really cherish in value. Those, you know, freedom freedom of speech freedom of press freedom of believe an human rights and rule of law. All the, you know, found the mental values we cherish in west now becomes very. Threatened. I would say threatened by the Confucius institutes because they do it does export the Chinese communist party's propaganda into our schools now through through the Confucius institutes and the Confucius classroom. So that's one big problem. The propaganda and also there's some other big problems. Brought by the Confucius institutes, which are censorship and self-censorship. And because as you can imagine a certain topics are deemed by the Chinese government as sensitive or taboos like you just named Tibet independence or Taiwan independence or human rights or ten in the nineteen eighty nine Channon massacre in China, the they're not saying massacre. Of course, they would say Taman turmoil. It says rebellious or something. Yeah. Right. Like riots is I was young back then and I remembered on TV on China Central Television, which stayed on TV station outlets on the TV entre assisted TV with the imagery of people. Burning the military trucks, and the anchor would would tell us that those riots are burning the People's Liberation Army soldiers and the soldiers are so plied, and very, you know, very restricted the didn't hurt the students or the Beijing civilins. So all all the back things don't by the people or by the students towards the People's Liberation Army. And then it was surprised. So that's how they describe the nineteen thousand nine ten and massacre to us that of course, it's not the fact we win know. And also, the TV station would say, there's no not a single China's people died in that huge turmoil. But it's not fact. Who off try immigrant to Canada? I knew there's many people died. And so that's why that one sort of iconic video of the man standing in front of the tank, I think has certain salience for you. Because it's stained star contrast to what the Chinese government is saying, right? I didn't I didn't see that image that famous image until I left China onto arrived the Canada. So I didn't know the truth all the time all the us when I was in China, and of course, the persecution alot suppression of fallen going. I heard about that some people I have a head friends or even relatives practice fungal. I didn't know much because the media is controlled very tightly controlled by the Chinese communist party what to report what not to report. And how you report what? Language, you use to describe surgeon things or descript history or current affairs. So it's all about control and sometimes they lie as well. Of course, the distort history. So those are. What Chinese people are taking into our life on a daily basis? No matter you, paper magazine, you hear radio like yours, or what TV or movie or pop songs, or you know, entertainment, anything it's about the states. Yeah. You have to stay the party line. Yeah..

"Did I hurt did are here any universities or schools? Trying to close Confucius institutes actually never before. I hurt any criticisms or concerns over the land Chinese language program? I didn't know much about the Confucius institutes other than it teaches Chinese language on culture in foreign countries. Which to me sounds great, right? I want people to learn my home country's language and culture. The in this article, it says the reason the McMaster University Canada was going to close Confucius institutes because. The Chinese government was is discriminating people who have believe in falon gome, that means when Chinese government when the China's government was recruiting instructors for the Confucius institutes, they allow Chinese people who believe in falon goal to be the instructors what is fallen gong. That's another story following on put it simply, according to my understanding falon gong far long is the three Chinese characters for literally means the law wheel of the universe and it rooted deeply in Chinese philosophy traditional Chinese philosophy and culture, the principles of falon goal, is truthfulness. Compassion forbearance. So following gome was first introduced by its founder, Mr Lee home, Jude publicly in China in nineteen ninety two and then in seven years following going has spread to all over China and not only China, but also many countries across.

"And so they form packed even if they're kind of problematic or like one of them's week, and it's kind of dependent on the other one. And then they wind up having proxy wars and the things that the places where they really go. The thing that really sets them off our places that themselves are divided. This is one thing that I've been thinking about lately is in a lot of countries. What winds up happening is particularly if you have a sectarian or ethnic split in the country. What winds up happening is that the people in that country, the groups feel more of an allegiance to people outside their country, fellows of from a different country or regional power or wherever than they do to their own country. People of the other group. And so you see this in various travel places like Yemen or Syria or whatever, where you know the government is a minority soclean regime. It doesn't call itself that, but it effectively operates that way and it feels more affinity with Iran has and Russia than it does with most of the people who actually live in Syria and the Syrian people are so disgusted with the regime that they feel more Finnity with a lot of Gulf states in with Turkey with the United States, the case of the Kurds, then they do with their own government. And so these places become flashpoint. So even countries that don't want to fight each other kind of drawn in backing their respective side and and it fractures. And these, these are the fracture points. And we see these with select. With with this. It's like it's going to get smoothed over because Turkey and Saudi Arabia and the United States need to have at least decent diplomatic relations. I find it interesting that the Turks released this American pastor that they've been holding for a long time. Yeah, I'm worried about for Tula. Grew Len. Yeah, right. Yeah, that's the thing is like the almost never happens in the United States, like the Chilean this during the pitch regime, they kill the dissident like in the United States, and that was a huge issue. So Flynn was already going to try to extract Fatullah Google led to a Turkish Black site. We know this that was reported in the Wall Street Journal. So I mean, yeah, it's very scary what you see pastor Brunson released and you go, well, the way the trends been around the world's all been transactional ISM. So what are we giving back? Yeah, it was differences that that pastor Brunson wanted to go back to the United States as opposed to be being imprisoned. Whereas Glenn really. Not want to go to Turkey, but. But, but yes, but it's not about the person being extracted, it's about the political leader scoring a win and what worries me sort of like have this sort of alliance of convenience against Iran's, but then you know, it's what happens when somebody does something that goes too far or set somebody off like there's so many flashpoints you'd think about all the multiple layers that are going on in Syria with with. Sort of sick -tarian split within the country. These really interested not allowing Rhonda established a beachhead Iran's Ronnie and supporting the regime to support has blah's bore against Israel. The US Russia split the United States, protecting the Kurds, but not giving them statehood, like all these different things that could so easily go wrong. You've got so many different countries flying jets over the same country, and and they're all these incidents that, and it's just very easy to imagine this going. So like I was. In this past UN general assembly summit, the secretary general of the United Nations is usually this sort of voice for peace warned us all of the the the he mentioned the city's trap..
