China says it will retaliate after US orders its Houston consulate to close

"With the Chinese. Let's deal with the hacking situation and the story that broke yesterday and even before this, we had heard that the Chinese were actively trying to steal intellectual property on Research for a Corona virus vaccine and it comes down to the Chinese know that this virus originated in Wuhan. The Chinese know that they misled the world. They misled the United States they misled. Originally, the World Health Organisation, which has become complicity with the Chinese. On multiple levels and the Chinese did a disservice to humanity. Let's look at it through the prism and the lenses of us here in the United States. That if they would have let us know in December Or early January what they knew and if the Chinese would have locked down Wuhan sooner, even just a week sooner. They didn't tell their own people between January 14th in the 21st and there was a massive spread and rule on at that point. They don't even tell their own people or they didn't move to lock things down. And again the Chinese Communist government completely to blame here for mishandling and mismanaging and lying to the world. And with that said the Chinese don't want Toby. Shown up that they don't want to be behind the eight ball. They want to also be the ones that say, Hey, we've got the best vaccine against Corona virus. Instead of all of the other pharmaceutical and research and institutions around the world that are working diligently and feverishly. On a vaccine whether it's German scientists whether it's French, whether it's what we're hearing out of Oxford in the UK Fizer here in the United States and, of course, their branches all around the world, Moderna. You know, that's just a fraction of who's working. Johnson and Johnson here in the United States is just a fraction of who's working on this vaccine. And the Chinese were we heard this two months ago. I talked about this on the program months ago that the Chinese were tryingto hack and steal data from all over the world so they could be first. Was saying, Hey, we got the vaccine. And now we have two Chinese hackers that have been formally charged with trying to steal research on the Corona virus vaccine. Trying to steal from private companies trying to steal from our government agencies as well. And this is what came down from the DOJ yesterday. And these two guys apparently work that the Chinese Ministry of State Security and the Gwang Dong State Security Department To lead a campaign, which the DOJ the assistant attorney General, John Demmer said was a sweeping global computer intrusion campaign. That's the nice way to say hacking intellectual property theft just going in and stealing. Chinese are very, very good at this. That's why they've gotten so far militarily. From a industrial standpoint, they stolen countless countless hundreds of billions or trillions. An intellectual property. Lee. Zhou Yu, 34 years old and dung. Jeez, I got zero J A Z a shot. G, uh 31. According to the reports, they targeted intellectual property and confidential business information. Held by Pharmaceutical companies and those that are steaming full speed ahead toward a corona virus treatment. Treatments. So the therapeutics the testing issues, the vaccines they were trying to rip off and bust into everything. And this is what the Chinese have done again. Defense contractors. Why do you think the latest generation of the Chinese fighter jet looks just like the F 35 Because they ripped off was the Lockheed Martin or north of Groman. They They controlled her back in the late to thousands like 8 4009 And they stole a whole lot of defence information on the F 35 ripped it off. So it's defense contractors. They rip off the pharmaceutical companies. A computer high tech medical device companies. The Chinese even have a history of busting into solar energy companies here in the United States video game development They're ripping off information. They're stealing codes. It's nonstop on what the Chinese do their absolute thieves. When it comes to intellectual property. According to the indictment. These malicious cyber activities began more than 10 years ago. And were ongoing as of the date of the indictment, according to AA de MERS. During that time, the hackers stole terabytes of data from hundreds of targets. Establishing themselves as a prolific threat to the U. S and foreign networks. And these charges from the feds. They say that these Chinese hackers tried to access the accounts of other organizations that we're not government organizations. They tried to bust also into dissident organizations or actual dissidents or clergy, human rights activists. Is it trying to get Intel and so they can punish and and go after anything that's a threat to the Chinese Communist. Regime. That's what this comes down to. Yeah, Lee and Dung they were working on high tech companies. That was their focus, but they had a whole team. They work of others, obviously, but Lee and Dung they were, they were focused on busting into high tech companies here in the United States, also in South Korea, and Sweden and Spain, Australia, Belgium, Britain. Germany, Japan, Lithuania Nothing about a stony and Latvia. But Lithuania and these indictments were filed in U. S District Court in Washington. And shows that Beijing is using fight cyber theft. In a worldwide campaign. To quote Robbe replicate and replace non Chinese companies in the global marketplace. And then there's also said that China is providing the safe haven for these criminals in order for the Chinese government to get all this information that these guys were Pretty much on the Chinese kami payroll. China has not taken its place alongside Russia, Iran and North Korea in that shameful club of nations that provide a safe haven for cyber criminals to exchange or in exchange for those criminals being on call toe work for the benefit of the state. Again to feed the Chinese Communist Party's insatiable hunger. For American and other non Chinese companies. And to steal their hard earned intellectual property, including covert 19 research, according to Des Murs, assistant attorney general It's a huge problem it has been, and that's why the Chinese are as far as they are. So on the heels of that now we go to the next chapter. And that's that the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, has been ordered closed and, you know he's got his finger on this pulse and is spot on and is not a great job and doesn't pull punches. Mince words. And that's Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio. He gets and has gotten the Chinese threat for a very long time. And what Marco Rubio said today in Fox Business interview is that the Chinese Consulate in Houston is a front for a massive spy organization. And the State Department has ordered that consulate in Houston. To shut down, he said. This consulate is basically a front. It's kind of the central node of a massive spy operation. Commercial espionage, defense espionage. Also influence agents try to influence Congress, according to Marco Rubio. And by the way, Senator Rubio is the acting chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. And he said that this closure of the Houston Chinese consulate was long overdue. And he said the State Department Was completely right Team make this move, and the State Department says that this is absolutely necessary to protect intellectual property here in the United States and private information. And of course, the Chinese. They're going ballistic. They're saying that they could retaliate. That this is uncalled for. This is a gray GIs. We could retaliate. China China When you get there, try to get you to send another virus our way. Is that how you going to retaliate? And Rubio also predicted that China Would then retaliate by closing one of our diplomatic facilities. In China. And if you wanna get a snapshot of what we have in China, Of course, we have the official U. S embassy in Beijing, but we have five consulates around China. We have a consulate in Shanghai. We have a U. S consulate in Gwang Ju. We have a U. S consulate and Cheng do and Wuhan Great and in Shenyang, So we have apparently five other Consulates. On top of our embassy. So the expectation is the Chinese going to retaliate by shutting down one of our places. Hey, what about this fire? What about the Houston Fire Department being called to this embassy or this consulate? Has to shut down by end of business like 45 o'clock on Friday. So the Chinese have to shut this thing down and get out by the end of this week. By Friday afternoon, And last night, there was a fire at the embassy Smoke and Houston Fire department responded. What do you think happened? Where was the fire? What were they doing? Hold on to that thought, because we'll wrap up this whole story with that next. Here on Schmidt, I

LoL Words Hasn't Been Cancelled (At Least Not Yet)

"Legends, world seemed to be cancelled, and then suddenly it wasn't I'm dreams, and so the sports minute presented by East Sports Network, China announced that they cancelled all international sporting events through twenty twenty, at first, that seemed likely to include the of legends. World's scheduled to be held in Shanghai this fall, but according to ESPN that decision will not affect leave legends. The plants implement a bubble system where all teams and some select media operation staff enter a closed ecosystem. At that point, no one's allowed in or out until the competition finished. It's a similar system to the one being used by the NBA to get it. Season finished as with anything this pandemic. There's no precedent or guaranteed. This type of format will actually work. The original plans for world, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year to be held across six cities this fall, according to ESPN new plans to implement the bubble this year and then run with the city tournament in two. Thousand Twenty, one So. What does this mean for the tournament? It's quite complicated and no one really knows. The viruses have various levels of contaminant across the world with the US having the most cases right now. Many countries have put a temporary ban on US travelers until we get things better under control. China at one point ravaged by the disease is down to reporting single digit new cases. Every day now eastport sites don't even count Chinese viewership for events because we have no independent corroboration so I'm certainly not taking those numbers as perfect fact, but it is clear. That China has a better handle on the disease than we do here. In Europe, many countries are also reporting very few new cases after massive spikes in April. A lock can change a few months, but there is a realistic possibility that LCS teams will not be able to compete in world this year if something doesn't change soon across the states. In addition, the bubble format is not fleshed out, either it's only goes wrong with the NBA's attempt begins on July thirtieth there's a possibility we see. World canceled outright. That still hasn't been ruled out yet.

Committee agreed to set up a commission to rename those basis, so there may be a showdown on Horizon Greg Murray national security correspondent for NPR I'm Greg. Thank you so much. My Pleasure Robin. We're in pandemic a race moment problems of the economy, but this is also a China moment the virus likely started there and think of the trade and tariff wars, so we WANNA. Take a step back to look at a fascinating new book about China's evolution and the important role played by choose yes, to Jewish families whose massive business empires and work rescuing refugees in World War. Two helped shape the country today especially Shanghai Jonathan. Kaufman is author of the last kings of Shanghai, the rival Jewish dynasties that helped create modern China. He's also director of the journalism, school, at Northeastern University Jonathan welcome thanks very much rather. Be here well, and this is nothing less than. Than you know the history of China over the last several hundred years, so we're going to have to hopscotch through. It reads times like an epic or a masterpiece theater. We have these two families. The Sassoon's the Kadoories the Sassoon's come to China I from Baghdad David Sassoon the patriarch, fleeing mistreatment in the early eighteen hundreds with just the shirt on his back, and with eight sons he builds this billion dollar dynasty that as you right would bank roll, a king, and advise prime ministers and educate others through a school system Elly Kadoorie was a student. He then go build his own family dynasty, becoming one of the richest men in Asia, the Kadoorie the Sassoon's. How did this happen? Like what was the pool of? It wasn't really China with Shanghai. What was the poll? Well I think what we tend to forget sometimes is that some empires are built on military or missionaries? This was really built on business when the British up China. During the opium wars in the eighteen forties, their goal was to make China place where people could make money and I'm the Sassoon's were at that point in India David. Sassoon was dabbling in the opium trade, and he saw this great opportunity, and so he had eight sons, and began to deploy his sons across China to see if he could open up. Markets and Shanghai became the place. Where if you were young and ambitious, it was the place to go, and there's a little bit of a whiff of. Colonialism here I. Mean You say opium? The Kennedy family. You know made their money on trade of alcohol. This was something that not everybody approved of me and there were people who were saying. This opium is not helping our injured Chinese workers. It's making them addicts I mean. There was some controversy over the way they made their money. There was and I. Think the analogy is probably close to the cigarette and alcohol industry as you say with the Kennedys, which is opium was legal at this time. There's no question that the Chinese were opposed to it, but one of the geniuses that business geniuses of the Sassoon's was that they found a way to exploit the sale of opium in a way that managed to both monopolize the. The the production of IT in India they then shifted to China and then worked with Chinese middlemen to then sell it on in Chinese shops, and I think in the end. The moral concerns was something that they didn't think about very much. They also built huge hotels. Whole school systems devoted rubber electricity. You've described their businesses even with criticism of the opium trade. You've described their businesses as enlightened. Well. Shanghai before the Sassoon's Kadoories arrived was it was a big city, but it was really a backwater, and what the Kadoories in the Sassoon's did with their hotels and other investments was really put Shanghai on the map, and they gave it by the eighteen ninety s Shanghai had very advanced transportation system gas system electricity. It had those incredible buildings that we see now along the waterfront along the Bund. It had as many skyscrapers cities like Chicago you had thousands of people coming on cruise ships to stay at these hotels and experience China Charlie Chaplin all coward. It was a place suddenly that everyone wanted to visit. It was the power of the East and the sooner. The Kaduri's were very much part of creating that atmosphere. I mean there's so much here and we'd just a few decades after a penalty. His father arrived when we've got this. Magnificent Dynasty but we must fast forward because it's time to land in the Nineteen Thirties and here we are in an old Rar, black and white movie. Victor Sassoon descendant of David looks a film actor. Maybe the lifestyle, too, and thousands of Jews are fleeing Europe head of World War Two and the Nazis and the senior Elly Kadoorie of the other family in an encounter between these rival empires, tells victor, stopping playboy and help form united front on refugees, and they do just briefly. What did they do to bring Jews from your? Well. The Jews are fleeing Europe. Because there's no other place they can go every other city. Every other country shot the doors, but Shanghai, because it's occupied by the British by the American, and by the Japanese is an open city but the important thing is the Japanese are tightening noose around Shanghai, invaded China, and the Japanese are allied with the Nazis and Victory Soon essentially produces one of the great. Khan jobs in world history, where he basically helps convinced the Japanese that he is so influential, and that Jews are so influential that they can help. Keep the Japanese from going to war. With the United States and with Great Britain. The Japanese are somewhat antisemitic already. They're very suspicious of Jews, they believe Jews do control the world and Victor Sassoon decides. He's not going to disabuse them of that notion, but instead will sort of string them along by inviting them to its nightclubs to his parties all the time, saying let these juice day and I'll try to work on things behind the scenes in truth behind the scenes. He was spying on the Japanese. He was some believed working for British intelligence. He was buying up land in South America believing that perhaps he could resettle Jewish refugees there until finally the Japanese caught on and Victor Hunter flee the country just before Pearl Harbor. In fact they had been living in this secluded. You know marble-floored Gilded area within Shanghai, but that as you say, the news is tightening in along the way, though the families have interactions with Shanghai check the anti-communist Nationalist Leader Mao Zedong the Communist counterrevolutionary Sun Yat Sen as you rate China's George Washington. Who overthrew the empire? It's just so remarkable, but the guilded cage gets dismantled. What happened? I think in the end the Kadoorie assumes were brilliant businessman, but politically they missed the rise of communism. I mean you speak to their children and grandchildren today I'm big knowledge that they put all their bets on the nationalist, and the Kaduri's were much the same way, so they after World War Two and the Americans liberate. Shanghai, this is Susan. The kadoories come back thinking they can resume life as normal, but of course they can't, and they end up losing everything in Shanghai on this assumes lead, and they never go back on the Kadoories. Go to Hong Kong and decide that they're going to try to do it differently and they. They recognize that they were part of what led to the rise of communism, the inequality, the great wealth, scrape poverty, but at the same time they also feel they should do more for the Chinese, and so, what are the things that could do? Is they rebuild their fortune in Hong Kong is they ended up helping three hundred thousand Chinese refugees helping them start on small farms small plots where they can make a living, and they try to correct some of the mistakes. They saw that the earlier generations had made, and it pays off for them. They become incredibly wealthy, and then return to China in the nineteen seventies and eighties richer than ever. you have one scene where I think it's a grandson Michael..

China Superchargers

"We're here. Today would just have a few quick things to go through pretty quiet day for Tesla overall as Elon. Musk has decided to leave twitter for a little bit. Not necessarily bringing news to a screeching halt, but definitely having an impact. We talked late last week about Tesla, potentially seeking out some land for a possible factory or something else in the UK. Well today there have been some rumors floating around on twitter. That musk may have flown to London today. Wednesday June third I'm sure I could probably fact check that but I'm personally not really big into the whole flight tracking concept so I'll leave it at that just passing. Passing along some of the rumors on twitter for what it's worth did originate from an account that has blocked me I'm not sure if it is someone using the blacklist or something else, but take that for what it's worth x today we have electric reporting on some pretty major superchargers expansion plans for China. They say quote at their Shanghai office last week. The automaker announced its plan to deploy four thousand superchargers in the country in twenty twenty, alone and quote, and while I'm not sure where they got this information electric says that there are about twenty five hundred superchargers stalls currently in China supercharge dot. Info is where I like. Like to get my tracking information for superchargers, and they have the whole of Asia Pacific right now at just over four hundred super charging stations, and of course, each station has multiple stats. The for a super charger location worldwide is about nine superchargers per station I think over time that number would grow so if we assume ten charges per station with the support of four hundred new chargers, we could be looking at four hundred new locations in China or something in that ballpark. The super charger location build out in China historically has been pretty linear so I. Think with gigafactory Shanghai now ramping up. We're going to see that change, too. Too much more of an exponential type of growth, and I wouldn't be surprised to see the super charger numbers in Asia Pacific Exceed Europe within the next twelve months of course, hopefully, gigafactory Berlin means see similar exponential type of infrastructure build out in Europe as well, but China market is larger. Even Volkswagen sells more vehicles in Asia Pacific than in Europe, so at some point, those are likely to flip next. Today is an interesting news Ford dealerships specifically independent Cardio ships in the United States so non franchised dealerships CNBC has learned and confirmed with Wells Fargo Bank that Wells Fargo last month and I sent out to hundreds of independent dealerships. Them know that they were dropping them as customers, and they would no longer accept car loans coming in from those dealerships, a wells Fargo spokeswoman told CNBC that the bank had quote an obligation to review our business practices in light of the economic uncertainty presented by Covid, nineteen and have led the majority of our independent dealer. Customers know that we will suspend accepting applications from them and quote so the timeline, and how temporary the situation is a little bit unclear, but this may add in some cases a little bit more pressure to some of those dealerships now. How big of a deal is this really probably not? Not all that big. The Independent dealerships can likely find financing elsewhere, and as it relates to Tesla. This is about independent dealerships, so this is more of the used car environment versus new vehicles, and I think regardless of Tesla's disruption for new vehicle sales, and a little bit for US vehicles as well. I think dealerships for used vehicles are probably going to be around for quite a long time. Next is a quick update on space, X. if any of you have launched fever from the launch over this weekend, you'll have another opportunity to get your fix tonight if you're in the US on Wednesday June third. Third? At six twenty five PM Pacific Time Nine, twenty, five pm. Eastern time. This is another exciting mission for SPACEX. Because this is related to Starlink, this is the eighth launch of Starling satellites for operation so operational satellites four, hundred, twenty, one through four, hundred and eighty. June should be a big month for Starlink launches with three expected launches scheduled for the month about the crew dragon mission. There was a pretty interesting quote that was shared on the TMC forums by Astronaut Doug. Hurley was quote the thing that really stood out to both of us, and we mentioned it as soon as we talked is that? That, we didn't even feel the docking. It was just so smooth, and then we were docked and the shuttle. You felt a bit of a jolt. That really really surprised me and quote so obviously. The autonomous technology that spacex is using for docking at the International Space Station has a lot different than the autonomous technology that Tesla is using on earth, but nevertheless uninteresting and nice quote to read Leslie today I just want to give a few thoughts off the top of my head on the Nikola interview yesterday. Obviously some mixed reactions from that interview, but I appreciate those of you. That came to it with. With an open mind that interviews, not my time. That's Trevor's time to give us his take on the company. Then we can take that information and we can assess it for ourselves for me. It's about getting good information out. There were lucky. I think to have platforms to speak directly with CEO's of these companies and assess based on the things that they say rather than having everything be shrouded in mystery. So that's the whole goal I really appreciate Trevor taking the time to do that and answering my questions, it's not exactly the easiest environment to come into you, and it's not every see yo that is. Is Willing to do that so I really appreciate that in terms of Nikola as a business. I wish them all the best. My personal preference is Tesla an investment. I'm a really big fan of the vertical integration. That Tesla has I think that allows tesla to learn a lot and it rate very rapidly as you said in the past pace of innovation is the most important thing I believe that vertical integration helps with. That doesn't mean another model can't work. Nikola does the advantage of not having that legacy business waiting them down. That could allow them some room to operate so I. Think they'll be interesting. Interesting to follow, but personally not the investment for me, and that's okay again. This is all about open-mindedness, due diligence and sharing

Is Shangri-La A Real Place?

"James Hilton was simply dreaming of a place that humans have yearned for since they I learned to yearn a heaven of sorts a Paradise Utopia Xanadu the garden of Eden Shambala Hilton a popular writer in the first half of the twentieth century named his Happy Place Shangrila and he made at wondrous in spiritual talking it high into the mountains in northwest Tibet. It was setting of his nineteen thirty three adventure. Novel lost horizon which instantly became a worldwide bestseller. It was also made into a major Hollywood film. The legendary Frank CAPRA directed and Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt starred in Nineteen thirty seven from the moment lost horizon hit bookstore shelves Shangri la became synonymous with utopia back. Then it was an ideal a place to escape to during a time when the real world had just been through a global war in the Great Depression since then the simple idea of the place has sparked countless trips. Tibet journeys of faith and perseverance of hope and distant. Promise of supposed enlightenment and sometimes disappointment. It's kind of an amazing phenomenon considering that the place doesn't exist and it never has except for ten years or so when what's now called Camp David. The presidential retreat was founded under the name Shangrila by then President Franklin Roosevelt in nineteen forty two. Or at least that was the only time it's existed until recently but let's start at the beginning. Hilton reportedly did most of the research for his novel in the British Museum Library not far from his home in the northeastern part of London. He never actually visited Tibet. Instead he took inspiration for Shangri la from another utopian dream a place known for centuries as Shala we spoke with Ed Birnbaum who lectures on comparative religion mythology and wrote the way to Shambala in nineteen eighty. He said there was one. Sort of very very garbled version of the Shambala myth that Hilton Red and one of the Catholic explorers writings. But it wasn't an all clear. It was the sort of universal theme and at that time. Tibet was pretty much unexplored. So if you're going to look for hidden utopia that was an ideal place to do it. Shala is a Tibetan Buddhist legend about a Utopian Paradise far in the Northern Mountains of Asia. It said to be a spiritual place where people of all religions and backgrounds live together in harmony and also said to be the place from which when Warren Evil Engulf the rest of the world. A leader will emerge to defeat the forces of chaos and usher in a new age of peace and happiness. Shambala grows out of the Buddhist Teaching College Chakra or the wheel of time which states that the center of the universe. Mount Meru sometimes called Mount Subaru. Set to be well. North of Tibet. Birnbaum said people sort of looked at Tibet as this mysterious Utopian kind of place and the Tibetans themselves looked even farther north for that. Utopia Shambala if Hilton who died in nineteen fifty. Four was indeed modeling Shangri la after the Buddhist teachings of Shambala. It might paint him to learn what's happened to his imaginary wonderland because it's become real but not an particularly Buddhist way in two thousand one the Chinese government which is controlled. Tibet since late nineteen fifties changed the name of Zhongdian County to Shangri la for simple purpose to cash in on tourist dollars. Many areas and China had been vying for the right to change their names. Shangri la and took nearly a decade to decide on a winner. Zhongdian one out in. What the Guardian in two thousand six called one of the most day. She's rebranding exercises in history. Today the larger area Shangrila boasts say Shangrila resort a Hilton Garden Inn Shangrila and airport with daily flights to Beijing Shanghai and Lhasa. The capital of China's Tibet Autonomous Region in the heart of what Westerners now as Tibet visitors can tour the largest Betton Buddhist monastery in Yunan province. And when they're done they can cough down. Abreu at the Shangri la beer bar tagline beer made in heaven Tibet and the newly named Shangri la a draw for reasons other than tourist traps. Of course Tibet is known. After all is the roof of the world it shares the highest peak in the World Mount Everest with neighboring Nepal. Though that's a long way from Shangri La. The area's natural beauty is breathtaking. Which makes it a destination for outdoor levers. That's especially popular with Chinese tourists. It's harder for Westerners to secure visas to get there. But is this the Shangri La that James Hilton envisioned? Is What modern travelers expect. That it seems is probably up to the pilgrim. Birnbaum said there are different ways of going to Shambala to me what I found most interesting was the symbolism of it sort of reflects an inner journey

"In Los Angeles I'm Kai resulted it's Friday the twenty fifth of October as always to have you along so here is where we are impeachments heating up the economy is fine it's good even but there are some things keep your eye on the Fed meets next week and consumers continue to be the last best economic hope in this country so let's visit a bitch Ellie and see yeah the week went k.. Davidson is with the Wall Street Journal John Harwood is at CNBC everybody Heike Happy Washington World Series and sorry we had an oh man let's get off my radio program right so anyway I'm kate let me start with you and The report out from Treasury today about the budget deficit the biggest has been in seventy there's almost a trillion dollars were taken way more money than we spend discuss I think you meant to say we're spending way taken and that's okay guy it's Friday yeah I mean I think that this was largely an expected number government officials and independent forecasters have been projecting for months now that the deficit could hit a trillion dollars at actually came in just shy of that in part because corporate tax revenue primarily has started to pick up a little bit since May in the second half of the year and so that's a positive but of course revenues. You know we would've normally in this kind of economy that you mentioned it's it's pretty good it's chugging along you would expect to see revenues much higher so folks asked me I got an e email after my story saying are at record highs and yes they are but they're not where we would think they should be our solar John I want you to give me the historical context on this one because the last time the budget deficit rose as much as it is now not to the level but you know the pace of change unemployment was in double digits or or very nearly there and we were just out of her in here we have full employment and the economy as I said you know good well that's why it makes it more disturbing and the news is going to get worse fiscally over time because the baby boomers retiring at high numbers this is as a percentage of the economy higher than it at four point six percent yeah higher than any point in the Obama second term and it underscores the consequence of both spending increases that the administration signed on wile adopting a tax cuts that were not offset with spending cuts all right so let's let's gears a little bit here and go to American consumers our I don't WanNa roll two things into one one is consumers continuing to be the backbone of this economy and at the same time in the face of daunting indefinite numbers and a trade war that still seems to be shaky at best investors and Wall Street's seemed to be hanging in what gives no one cares about those little things and trade wars no I mean the consumer is that you know the University of Michigan and they released their consumer sentence it numbers on Friday and they're up from September and you know they said that consumers the mentions of the references to the negative impacts of tea sheriffs actually went down a little bit last month and I'm sort of joking oh consumers are aware of tariffs I heard a couple of ladies talking about them at target a few weeks backing but but I think that when it comes to some other things for example the impeachment inquiry you know only two percent mentioned that so these these other sort of things that you know like a very big deal in the news cycle they don't seem to be weighing on consumers yet Joel I'm GonNa get to impeachment in a minute with you but but I do WanNa get your context in your perspective on on the China deal that the president has worked out and I say deal in air quotes right because there are still tariffs in place there's substantial and the Chinese tariffing us do you suppose that what's happening here is that in essence the president's going to sign something call it a deal and then we're GonNa move briskly honored absolutely and I second year air quotes in this there is no reason to think that significant structural changes in the Chinese economy have been agreed to in phase one or in a prospective face to face three this is the president and his advisors looking for a way to exit a conference Haitian that is harming the economy that imperils his reelection and we saw that as soon as the the so-called phase one deal was announced and China begin clarifying that not only do they not want new tariffs they want old ones rolled back and this is a situation that at the administration I think is not prepared to lay out a specific roadmap for what they want and what's going to get done but as you say there going to tie a ribbon on it and call it a deal probably in mid November all right kate you and I have talked before on a Friday about the Federal Reserve and what chair Powell is doing in lowering interest rates and in response to the President's Trade Warren and it's those those rate cuts is ameliorative effects the Fed meets next week trade were still going on in in five words or less what do you think j palace thinking right now well I think that he's thinking maybe one more rate cut and maybe a pause after that more than one more rate cut last weekend I'm going to ask you again impeachment as I said at the top is heating up what becomes of this economy as impeachment sucks all the air out of the room does it can continue apace with with no net damage or or something actually GonNa Happen I would expect it to continue apace while impeachment plays out it seems to me that the only thing where notionally optimism pessimism fluctuates on a daily basis is on the trade deal as for a political developments in Washington I think they're assumed as background noise however once it gets more tangible and we actually have action in the house and in a Senate trial would but I would expect to happen that's what I think we're going to find out how divisive and how confidence shaking that event is I don't think it is right now John Harwood up tidily thank you very much we'll have the details when we do the numbers.

"Welcome to the jump on passing I'm Rachel Nichols who is on assignment in Shanghai today I'm joined by our senior writer Ramon Auburn and two thousand Seventeen Matt Bond coming up we saw some exciting dunks from Bosak Levin Enzyme Williamson at the United Center last night weekly that they wouldn't Rachel Nichols Average Jefferson were there on behalf of the jump after the game in Shanghai they broke down everything happening on and off the court here's Rachel thank you I'm here with Richard Jefferson they played a basketball game that was that was funny to be here as long as we are and to have as many people that have been involved with the NBA involved here in China and ESPN for twenty thirty years not knowing up until the tip that there was going to be a game so I really think that this was a win right he was like hey there's an opportunity to kind of you know get this whole thing behind listen to move forward yeah and you and I talked to players throughout the day we can not talk to them publicly on camera which will get to admit it but what sense did you get the guys you talked to about what for them well I think the players you know they just wanted to play a game that's always been what it's about for them they just WanNa come over here and be ambassadors a lot of guys have come over here and have other opportunities and and have been coming here for years so there's a lot of relationships and a lot of connections here but I think when all of this stuff started to go for it was just like hey we just want to play basketball we just WANNA play basketball the most important to us and I I think that was the right message for them just to focus on the game actually today's the sort of routine of going through what they would normally do on a game day was a really big relief that after a couple of days of having practices moved because they couldn't use is this arena when they wanted to because so many sponsors draft out they had to actually re sand the floor here to take some of the sponsor games off they weren't able to make the appearances but today was a game day so guys had film sessions guys had shoot around guys actually took their pregame naps like there was there was a time for the bus and then they got on it so the guys I talked to said that that was a big relief for them one thing they did not do though as I just mentioned was the regular media and that is actually usually a big word of these global games because it lets them sort of spread the game to the country tell people back home what this is like for them and the Chinese government came out today and told the NBA he did not want any players speaking presumably for fear that they might say something that the Chinese government might not like and they also asked Adam silver not to give his scheduled press conference do you think that the American players that the NBA players felt muzzled that they couldn't talk or do you think they felt relieved that they weren't asked it's probably a combination of both I it's it's unrealistic to have a bunch of players given a crash course in what's going on in the last thirty six hours twenty four hours right because this is a large part of it I what's going on you know this is a large part of Chinese history and so I think it was good for them just to focus on the game just nate any of that and again as we both know NBA NFL all of these sports have this media training stay in the middle of the road don't say anything controversial don't give Bulletin Board material where here the bulletin board material would have been something for tenure to China and so it's just one of those things it's good to just like hey we're here to play basketball that's the pige and there's really we don't need to say that message anymore we're just GonNa go and play now it's one thing if players don't want to talk about something I do think it's important if you're having press count references reporters being allowed to ask questions over in Japan the Houston Rockets are still playing their against the Toronto Raptors and there was a press conference tonight with James Harden and Russell Westbrook in a report from CNN tried to ask them a question take a listen to what happened the NBA has always been a league prides itself on Ernest coaches being able to speak out openly about political and societal effects. I just wonder after the events of this week and the fallout we've seen whether you would both 'til differently about speaking out in that way in future you just question this is an event that's happened this week during during the NBA. This particular question has not been said the question what do you make of that why being first of all the situation it didn't need all of that I think there's still a need that'd be a level of trust at the end of the day a player hasn't said anything wrong yet no player has said anything wrong that led to this this is from a tweet from general manager this had nothing to do with the players I think ultimately because there are so many players you just don't want one player to Dan get isolated and then say the wrong thing or have something misinterpreted during that press conference by the way it could have just been somebody who's for higher but the idea of making it more of an issue by questioning her taking the microphone away as to your point I would trust James Harden Orissa Westbrook to be able to answer the question thousand percent one of the things you you wonder if the media was told they will not be answering questions on this topic and so then if somebody's still feels like they want to go and now and you don't have to turn this into more than what it is I fully believe that every player can handle these questions or at least say that Hey I don't know enough or you know this is the situation that I'm not that informed at that is the very accurate answer both teams played hard we do it all the time and so I I just feel like in that situation you know you just allow the players to show their intelligence and to say what they feel but I just don't know if you need to escalate the situation it did and by the way there are times when people say hey we're only taking basketball questions since the reporter's job to still ask the questions that need to be asked I understand we did see them play Bass it was a very competitive game almost went into overtime what did you learn preseason basketball overtime usually every night the legends recent Terry Gary Payton were sitting there just like please Lord no overtime what did you learn about the Lakers and nets from Washington play this game against each other I think both things kind of correlated together right where you'll the net they miss Wilson Chandler and they're not sure what that's going to happen he's out for twenty five games to start the season due to a suspension and they miss that four that four man here with the Lakers that size that they play with Anthony Davis obviously without they started Dwight Howard next to him and Anthony Davis had eight free throws nine free throws in the first quarter now you don't want him to get banged up every game every night because he does have a little bit of a history with injury but that size is going to be impactful you don't see that with a lot of teams anymore in the lead to have that type of size throughout their front line and on their bench doesn't I stutter Spencer Dinwiddie tonight what do you do I I that's what makes the net so amazing they were out there without care sliver who went out with a high rearing obviously no K. D. and they were competitive the whole time because of the brand of basketball they play they have the next man up mentality and everyone contributed on their team and so I think the Brooklyn Nets are going to be very very surprising team this year if he can stay healthy and keep everyone on the floor I think this is a team that can really make a run in the eastern conference now Kyrie Irving most of the game because he injured his face by the way though is I know it's not funny but it is always amazing to me when the injury report says Kyrie Irving out face and that is a concern for him only because he had the facial fracture going into training camp he's had two previous facial fractures including when you played with him so that's something we're going to watch I will say though you talk about the grittiness of the Brooklyn Nets style of basketball they play Joseph cy their owner was courtside tonight and he was instrumental in this game actually being played the fact that he is the League's first the Chinese majority owner he did a lot of work behind the scenes for brokering peace between the NBA and the Chinese government and look the Houston Rockets for a long time I'm were China's team right Yao Ming played for Houston he was incredibly popular because of that Tracy McGrady became popular sort by proxy because of that Houston is no longer very popular team in China Nike in fact took rockets gear off their Nike China website they're not even selling racquets gear anymore do you think that the Brooklyn Nets might be able to step into that void and over the next couple of years become China's team oh without a doubt and I think that's an impact you'll see right away like you said Jersey getting pulled because understand this the Houston rockets in inherited they just happened to be the draft pick at the right time to get me and then they saw the opportunities that Yao Ming brought with his fan base and now you're going to look at the Brooklyn Nets now you know the Chinese people feel like they have a team one of one of one like one of art one of our citizens is an owner of an NBA team are most popular sports. So and it's you know the biggest city you know my opinion the greatest city in America and so it's one of those things that now you have an opportunity to really kind of raised that profile of the Brooklyn Nets New Orleans is the greatest sitting in America but I'm GonNa let you go with it's it's fine Shanghai is a very cool city we I'm very happy to be here the past couple of days despite all of the drama that's going on and we will be back from Shanghai later in the show but I mean back to you NBA released a statement on the incident that occurred during the hard westbrook press conference saying quote a team representative inappropriately interjected to prevent CNN's Christina McFarland perceiving an answer to her question we've apologized MS McFarland as this was inconsistent with how the NBA conducts media all right let's talk a little about Anthony Davis he posted sixteen points and five assists in twenty five minutes of play gets Nets Matt from what you've seen in short glimpses does ad look ready to carry the lake. I think the oh I think this is a big year for him this is almost like coming up party again he's in La now he's playing with a broad A healthy Anthony Davis is going to definitely contend for MVP and is player in the world so I think it's a big on him and also Lebron trusting eighty and the rest of the team to really get the job done throughout the season Lebron's in his seventeenth year he's not gonna be able to Harry M. throughout the season they want him fresh in the playoffs so it's going to take a lot of trust and Lebron but I definitely think ad ready to fill those shoes I mean I've gone back and forth and this when people say who who's your preseason an MVP in some ways it should be Lebron because he's got that narrative revenge the bronze etc Jaanus is repeat Guy Hardens always gotta be you've I think I'm starting to think he Davis I mean just the way they looked out of the gates and the way Lebron trying to set him up and going out of his way to do so Oh look at that list right there I think I think Lebron would want anthony in that role because it's cement him as a guy who need to pass the torch and also that's the next stage of his career he recognizes he needs somebody in that Johnson tight fitting on the Lakers and even in the short-term you say that it keeps Lebron fresh there's someone who's going to carry the load pretty much score twenty five thirty at night and do all the being things that allows the brunt we talk about tunnel conserves himself during the regular season but every time he's done that in his career he's been the best player on his team and for the first time now he's got some one who legitimately could be better than him and so that that makes life easier for him and allows him to conserve himself and also for Anthony Davis it's nice to kind of get a little confidence that's right after having a year that he had lashing Orleans well we forget with Anthony Davis like this is one of the best two way players I mean he has been for some time is going to say that I think he gets overlooked because he's been New Orleans and they haven't really been very consistent as far as making the playoffs in getting any national coverage games but this guy playing against them and seeing and play and down with the most talented guys in the NBA..
