The Defence Ministry in Pyongyang says that Washington and hostile forces had spread a rumor of arms dealings aimed at tarnishing North Korea's image. A senior official at the ministry's equipment bureau says they have never exported weapons or ammunition to Russia before and we will not plan to export them. White House National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby says that the U.S. had no evidence that any sales had actually taken place. Military experts believe that the Russian military continues to suffer from severe supply shortages in Ukraine, probably as a result of sanctions and export controls.

Some comedy on budget record labels. Last chance plays for some, as they are a little ropey. We start with a right cheery number from comedian Bobby Comber- La-di-da-di-da. A popular entertainer through the 20s and 30s. I can find little about his history online. Plenty of history about Sandy Powell. Here he gives us Sandy the Doctor. Next Harry Leader and his Orchestra- Little man you've had a busy day(1934). Leader was a prolific band leader who operated under many different names and had a long career. He was particularly associated with the programme Workers Playtime. Vocals are by Dawn Davis. She sang with a few British bands in the 1930s and 40s, as well as a solo and in a duo. She notably dueted with Al Bowlly. She moved to Australia in the late 40s but returned to England in 1955. Unfortunately she was unavailable to get back into the entertainment  business. She died in 1993, aged 83. Madame Nina Rae- Anne Laurie(1921) Other than being born in 1878 in Glasgow I could find nothing about her. Billy Williams, we've played before. Here he sings I'll lend you my best girl. Australian born he had a highly successful career in British Music hall. He died in 1915. Tommy Handley was another very successful comedian. Especially during WW2 in his radio programme ITMA- Its that man again. He gives us 'How many pips are there in a pomegranate'(1929).  Charlie Higgins- Down in the field where the buttercups grow. Another popular comedian from the 1930s. He played the London Palladium three times. He billed himself as  'A fool if only he knew it.' Ernest Butcher- I sing as I limp along(1935). A character actor from 1930s to 1950s. Nothing really online that talks about his singing. We have two of his records in the F.S collection. This track is self penned. Savoy Havana band- Dear love, my love. They were the resident band at the Savoy Hotel in London, 1921 to 27. Started by Bert Railton, they did the British Premier of Gerswin's Rhapsody in Blue. We get all modern to end the show. Troubled Welsh diva with Dorothy Squires- I walk behind you(1953). Composed by her partner of the time Billy Reid. She was successful throughout the fifties and into the 60s but her faded away and she died in 1998. We finish with John Kirby- Undecided and the spacey Dawn on the desert-1938 and 1939. Kirby started on the trombone, switched to tuba and ended up on the double bass. He played in many band and started his own well thought of jazz ensemble and orchestra. He sadly died young in 1952.

They have replaced Ukrainian currency with the ruble, rerouted the internet through Russian servers and arrested hundreds who have resisted assimilation. 他們發出俄國護照、手機門號和觀看俄國電視用的機上盒。他們已用盧布取代烏克蘭貨幣,把網路經由俄國伺服器傳送,並逮捕數百名抵抗同化的人。 In ways big and small, the occupying authorities on territory won by Moscow's forces are using fear and indoctrination to compel Ukrainians to adopt a Russian way of life. “We are one people,” blue-white-and-red billboards say. “We are with Russia.” 透過各種大大小小的方式,莫斯科部隊占領區的執政當局,正利用恐懼和洗腦,壓迫烏克蘭人接受俄國生活方式。「我們是同一個民族」,藍白紅三色的看板寫道,「我們與俄國同在」。 Now comes the next act in President Vladimir Putin's 21st-century version of a war of conquest: the grassroots “referendum.” 如今俄國總統普亭的21世紀征服戰願景準備進行下一步:草根式「公投」。 Russia-appointed administrators in cities like Kherson in Ukraine's south are setting the stage for a vote as early as September that the Kremlin will present as a popular desire to become part of Russia. They are recruiting pro-Russia locals for new “election commissions” and promoting to Ukrainian civilians the putative benefits of joining their country. 俄國在烏克蘭南部刻松等城市指派的官員,正安排一場最快9月舉行的投票,克里姆林宮將此包裝成大眾渴望成為俄國一分子。他們召募親俄的當地人,成立新的「選舉委員會」,並向烏克蘭平民宣傳加入他們國家的潛在好處。 Any referendum would be totally illegitimate, Ukrainian and Western officials say, but it would carry ominous consequences. Analysts in Moscow and Ukraine expect that it would serve as a prelude to Putin's officially declaring the conquered area to be Russian territory, protected by Russian nuclear weapons — making future attempts by Ukraine to drive out Russian forces potentially much more costly. 烏克蘭和西方官員說,任何公投都是完全不合法,會帶來不良後果。莫斯科和烏克蘭的分析家預估,這會是普亭正式宣布將征服地區納入俄國領土的序幕,在俄國核武保護下,未來烏克蘭要趕走俄軍代價可能會更加慘烈。 Kherson is one of four regions in which officials are signaling planned referendums, along with Zaporizhzhia in the south and Luhansk and Donetsk in the east. While the Kremlin says it will be up to the area's residents to “determine their own future,” 刻松是官員預告計畫舉辦公投的四個地區之一,其他包括南部的札波羅熱,以及東部的盧甘斯克和頓內次克。雖然克宮說,這些地區的居民「將決定他們自己的未來」。 As a result, a scramble to mobilize the residents of Russian-occupied territories for a referendum is increasingly visible on the ground. 正因如此,匆忙動員俄國占領區居民參加公投的行動,在當地已愈來愈明顯。 The Russian-appointed authorities of the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions, for instance, announced that they were forming “election commissions” to prepare for referendums, which one official said could happen Sept. 11 — a day when local and regional elections are scheduled to be held across Russia. 例如,札波羅熱和刻松地區的俄國指派當局宣布,他們正籌組「選舉委員會」,為公投作準備,一名官員說可能於9月11日舉行,這天是俄國預定全國舉行地方及區域選舉日。 “Russia is beginning to roll out a version of what you could call an annexation playbook,” John Kirby, spokesperson for the National Security Council, said last month. 美國國家安全會議發言人柯比上月表示,「俄國開始大量鋪陳一個你可稱之為併吞劇本的版本」。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/6533747

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Wednesday, August 10th, 2022. We’ve got some crazy news to get to today, so let’s dive right in… https://www.politico.com/news/2022/08/08/trump-fbi-maralago-search-00050442 Trump's Mar-a-Lago home searched by FBI in unprecedented move The FBI executed a search warrant at the Mar-a-Lago estate of former President Donald Trump on Monday as part of an investigation into the alleged mishandling of White House records, including potentially classified material, according to two people familiar with the matter. The Florida raid, which one of the people said took “hours,” resulted in the seizure of paper records, according to one person familiar with the development, who also noted that Trump attorney Christina Bobb was present during the search. It was a historic step by the Justice Department and FBI to investigate the residence of a former president, who is battling an increasingly complex thicket of legal threats. No former president — particularly one who is openly considering another bid for the Oval Office — has faced such a public law enforcement action, which immediately led to calls among his allies for recriminations and even the elimination of federal law enforcement agencies. “They even broke into my safe,” Trump himself said in a lengthy statement decrying the FBI search and comparing it to Watergate. Trump, who was the first to confirm the FBI action, said in a statement that his resort was “under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump said. The former president was not present at Mar-a-Lago. Instead, he was at Trump Tower in New York City, according to a person familiar with the situation. His son Eric Trump informed him of the raid. The FBI and the U.S. attorney’s offices in Washington didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. Spokespeople at Justice Department headquarters in Washington declined to comment. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, the Secret Service and the Palm Beach Police Department deferred comment to the FBI. Two sources familiar with the matter said top Biden White House officials were not given advance notice of the raid, which could potentially alter the course of both the upcoming midterms and an eventual Trump-Biden rematch in 2024. Though the investigation of Trump’s handling of presidential records has been percolating for months, it has largely remained in the background while the Jan. 6 select committee built a case that Trump committed crimes to disrupt the transition of power after his defeat in the 2020 election. The National Archives and Records Administration had confirmed in February that it had sought to recover 15 boxes of records from Mar-a-Lago that it deemed improperly removed, including some marked as “classified national security information.” The Archives confirmed at the time that it had been in touch with the Justice Department about the recovered documents. At the time, the Archives said it had had “ongoing communications” with Trump’s team about recovering missing presidential records. The Archives also indicated that it was working to recover un-archived social media messages and that it had evidence that Trump tore up and destroyed some papers, not all of which were recovered. The Archives also confirmed in December that it was reviewing whether Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows had properly stored records from his personal phone and email accounts. That investigation has also become an increasingly public threat to Trump, with some of his top allies and former White House officials facing grand jury subpoenas and FBI searches. Earlier in the day, the Justice Department defended its decision to seize the cellphone of John Eastman, the attorney who helped devise Trump’s strategy to seize a second term he didn’t win. Federal investigators have pursued evidence that Trump’s administration mishandled presidential records and even removed some boxes to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. An executed search warrant would require the signoff of a federal judge or magistrate, who would issue the warrant based upon evidence of a potential crime. The law enforcement moves at Trump’s residence came as lawyers and other observers have been bracing for action this month in politically sensitive Justice Department investigations as prosecutors approach a traditional quiet period for such probes in the lead-up to elections.

The IRS has stockpiled five million rounds of ammunition and spent $725,000 on bullets this year, according to Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, who has introduced a bill to block future ammunition purchases by the agency. The Republican lawmaker announced his sponsorship of the Disarm the IRS Act in a July press release. The bill would ban the IRS from acquiring ammunition through direct purchase or otherwise. The bill awaits a potential vote in the House Ways and Means Committee. The issue drew national attention after Gaetz appeared on Fox News’ Jesse Waters Primetime last week, saying that the IRS had spent $750,000 in 2022 alone on ammunition. “Call me old-fashioned, but I thought the heaviest artillery an IRS agent would need would be a calculator, not $725,000 worth of ammunition,” Gaetz said during his appearance on Fox News. While people may not think of the IRS needing weapons and ammunition, it has a criminal investigation division with armed law enforcement to pursue tax felons. A 2018 report from the Government Accountability Office said the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division had 2,148 law enforcement officers, 4,461 weapons—including 15 fully automatic firearms—and 5.05 million rounds of ammunition. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, four officers with the IRS have died since 1989 from medical conditions or accidents. None was firearm related. But the IRS isn’t the only governmental agency building up massive caches of guns and bullets. OpenTheBooks.com, a nonprofit government watchdog group, released a report called “The militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies” in December 2020, detailing how agencies that people wouldn’t normally associate with law enforcement were stockpiling weapons and ammunition. The Environmental Protection Agency owns 600 guns. At the same time, special agents at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are equipped with machine guns and AR15s. Even the Smithsonian Institution employed 620-armed “special agents,” up from zero officers in 2008, according to the report. Adam Andrzejewski, CEO & founder of OpenTheBooks.com, told The Epoch Times via email that the public should question why these agencies are armed to the teeth. Not only do they wield legal power, but they are also amassing firepower. “Just who are the federal agencies preparing to battle?” Andrzejewski wrote. Andrzejewski said there is no public purpose for rank and file, paper-pushing federal agencies to load up on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment. “Our data shows that the federal government has become a gun show that never adjourns. Taxpayers need to tell Washington that police powers belong primarily to cities and states, not the feds,” he stated.

Who ya gonna call? Assuming that you don’t have the number for the Ghostbusters, you’ll probably dial 911. But in a number of cities, the odds that anyone will be available to respond quickly enough to save you have been dropping. The problem has grown serious enough that even the Associated Press has been forced to cover the story. They begin with an interview with George Spaulding of Portland, Oregon. Five years ago, his son Brian was shot to death in his apartment. Though George checks in with the detective assigned to the case frequently, the police say they still have no leads. But even George admits that the police are simply overwhelmed and they probably just don’t have the manpower to assign anyone to really work the case full time. And it’s not just Portland where this is happening. Response times to emergency calls are rising and the number of criminal cases being closed are falling in many cities. From Philadelphia to Portland to Los Angeles, killings and gun violence are rising at the same time officers worn out by the pandemic and disillusioned over the calls to divest from policing that followed George Floyd’s murder are quitting or retiring faster than they can be replaced. Departments are scrambling to recruit in a tight labor market and also rethinking what services they can provide and what role police should play in their communities. Many have shifted veteran officers to patrol, breaking up specialized teams built over decades in order to keep up with 911 calls. If you read through that entire report, the AP cites statistics and provides quotes from various officials in five cities. Take a look at this list of names and see if you notice anything in common. Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Baltimore are all cited. It should come as no surprise to most of our readers that these are all cities that were subjected to violent BLM riots during the Summer of Love and all of them later attempted to “defund the police” in various ways. Now crime rates are up in each of those cities, particularly violent crime rates. Response times are up and case closure rates are down. The police forces in each of those cities have been depleted and they are struggling to find qualified recruits to replace the officers who have left. (Along with the officers who were killed or too seriously wounded to return to duty in some cases.) Is there any honest person who is having trouble connecting the dots here? The Associated Press gamely quotes one professor from the Crime and Justice Policy Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. He claims that you can’t blame the protests and the defunding movement because “crime is up in many areas,” even where those things didn’t happen. That much may be true, but it’s definitely a lot worse in the cities on this list. How can anyone continue to deny this? Today, we’re hearing complaints from disgruntled and frightened citizens. That’s understandable. But we should also remember that many of those complaining the loudest also helped elect the municipal officials who put all of these policies in place to begin with and bent to the will of the mob. Now they are reaping what they have themselves sown. If you don’t like what’s going on in the streets, take some responsibility yourself and work to put new people in charge who will deal with the situation in a serious fashion. Once you do that, you just might be able to convince some new aspiring law enforcement officers to come to work in your cities. Well, let’s shift our eyes over seas now. Did you know that China, is one of the freest countries in the world?! Nancy Pelosi: “China Is One Of The Freest Societies In The World…” - Play Video https://thepostmillennial.com/watch-pelosi-says-china-one-of-the-freest-societies-in-the-world?utm_campaign=64487 Pelosi says China 'one of the freest societies in the world' She cited Freedom House as a source, but Freedom House, however, does not list China as a free country, calling its government an "authoritarian regime" that has "become increasingly repressive in recent years." Freedom House writes: "The ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to tighten control over all aspects of life and governance, including the state bureaucracy, the media, online speech, religious practice, universities, businesses, and civil society associations, and it has undermined an earlier series of modest rule-of-law reforms. The CCP leader and state president, Xi Jinping, has consolidated personal power to a degree not seen in China for decades." Freedom House considers the small island nation of Taiwan, however, to be "free," ranking 94/100 on its freedom scale. Perhaps this is what Pelosi was referring to, as she just returned from a trip to Taiwan. Pelosi's Taiwan trip was a huge issue for China, which took the opportunity to engage in a massive show of force over the island. The self-ruling island has faced increased threats of violence from the CCP in recent days following Pelosi's visit to there, to repeated condemnation by the communists. US officials have made clear, though that they do not support an independent Taiwan, despite comments from President Joe Biden that the US would "militarily defend" it. https://twitter.com/i/status/1554169482242916354 - Play Video That was John Kirby for those wondering. https://www.outkick.com/oklahoma-cale-gundy-didnt-want-resignation-football/ ‘VAST MAJORITY’ OF OKLAHOMA PLAYERS DIDN’T WANT CALE GUNDY TO RESIGN: REPORT Many members of the Oklahoma Sooners reportedly didn’t want Cale Gundy to leave the program. The longtime Sooners assistant resigned from his coaching position after he admitted to reading a “shameful and hurtful” unknown word off a players iPad during a film session. He announced his resignation late Sunday night after more than two decades as a coach with the program. Despite his resignation, it sounds like many members of the team didn’t want him to leave. Gabe Ikard reported “the vast majority” of players on the roster didn’t want Gundy to leave. However, it sounds like they couldn’t sway his mind. After more than two decades as a coach with the Sooners and several seasons as a dominant QB in Norman, Gundy is gone because he read a player’s iPad during a film session. As Gundy claimed in his statement, they weren’t his words. He was reading a message on the iPad. ““I want to be very clear: the words I read aloud from that screen were not my words. What I said was not malicious; it wasn’t even intentional. Still, I am mature enough to know that the word I said was shameful and hurtful, no matter my intentions. The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so,” the former Oklahoma coach told fans in his resignation announcement. Overall, it seems like this situation spiraled out of control before most people even realized what happened, and that’s backed up by the fact most players didn’t want him to resign. What an incredibly bizarre and strange situation within the Oklahoma football program. This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, share it.

This is Garrison Hardie with your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief for Wednesday, August 10th, 2022. We’ve got some crazy news to get to today, so let’s dive right in… https://www.politico.com/news/2022/08/08/trump-fbi-maralago-search-00050442 Trump's Mar-a-Lago home searched by FBI in unprecedented move The FBI executed a search warrant at the Mar-a-Lago estate of former President Donald Trump on Monday as part of an investigation into the alleged mishandling of White House records, including potentially classified material, according to two people familiar with the matter. The Florida raid, which one of the people said took “hours,” resulted in the seizure of paper records, according to one person familiar with the development, who also noted that Trump attorney Christina Bobb was present during the search. It was a historic step by the Justice Department and FBI to investigate the residence of a former president, who is battling an increasingly complex thicket of legal threats. No former president — particularly one who is openly considering another bid for the Oval Office — has faced such a public law enforcement action, which immediately led to calls among his allies for recriminations and even the elimination of federal law enforcement agencies. “They even broke into my safe,” Trump himself said in a lengthy statement decrying the FBI search and comparing it to Watergate. Trump, who was the first to confirm the FBI action, said in a statement that his resort was “under siege, raided, and occupied by a large group of FBI agents.” “After working and cooperating with the relevant Government agencies, this unannounced raid on my home was not necessary or appropriate,” Trump said. The former president was not present at Mar-a-Lago. Instead, he was at Trump Tower in New York City, according to a person familiar with the situation. His son Eric Trump informed him of the raid. The FBI and the U.S. attorney’s offices in Washington didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment. Spokespeople at Justice Department headquarters in Washington declined to comment. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Florida, the Secret Service and the Palm Beach Police Department deferred comment to the FBI. Two sources familiar with the matter said top Biden White House officials were not given advance notice of the raid, which could potentially alter the course of both the upcoming midterms and an eventual Trump-Biden rematch in 2024. Though the investigation of Trump’s handling of presidential records has been percolating for months, it has largely remained in the background while the Jan. 6 select committee built a case that Trump committed crimes to disrupt the transition of power after his defeat in the 2020 election. The National Archives and Records Administration had confirmed in February that it had sought to recover 15 boxes of records from Mar-a-Lago that it deemed improperly removed, including some marked as “classified national security information.” The Archives confirmed at the time that it had been in touch with the Justice Department about the recovered documents. At the time, the Archives said it had had “ongoing communications” with Trump’s team about recovering missing presidential records. The Archives also indicated that it was working to recover un-archived social media messages and that it had evidence that Trump tore up and destroyed some papers, not all of which were recovered. The Archives also confirmed in December that it was reviewing whether Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows had properly stored records from his personal phone and email accounts. That investigation has also become an increasingly public threat to Trump, with some of his top allies and former White House officials facing grand jury subpoenas and FBI searches. Earlier in the day, the Justice Department defended its decision to seize the cellphone of John Eastman, the attorney who helped devise Trump’s strategy to seize a second term he didn’t win. Federal investigators have pursued evidence that Trump’s administration mishandled presidential records and even removed some boxes to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. An executed search warrant would require the signoff of a federal judge or magistrate, who would issue the warrant based upon evidence of a potential crime. The law enforcement moves at Trump’s residence came as lawyers and other observers have been bracing for action this month in politically sensitive Justice Department investigations as prosecutors approach a traditional quiet period for such probes in the lead-up to elections.

The IRS has stockpiled five million rounds of ammunition and spent $725,000 on bullets this year, according to Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, who has introduced a bill to block future ammunition purchases by the agency. The Republican lawmaker announced his sponsorship of the Disarm the IRS Act in a July press release. The bill would ban the IRS from acquiring ammunition through direct purchase or otherwise. The bill awaits a potential vote in the House Ways and Means Committee. The issue drew national attention after Gaetz appeared on Fox News’ Jesse Waters Primetime last week, saying that the IRS had spent $750,000 in 2022 alone on ammunition. “Call me old-fashioned, but I thought the heaviest artillery an IRS agent would need would be a calculator, not $725,000 worth of ammunition,” Gaetz said during his appearance on Fox News. While people may not think of the IRS needing weapons and ammunition, it has a criminal investigation division with armed law enforcement to pursue tax felons. A 2018 report from the Government Accountability Office said the IRS’s Criminal Investigation Division had 2,148 law enforcement officers, 4,461 weapons—including 15 fully automatic firearms—and 5.05 million rounds of ammunition. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, four officers with the IRS have died since 1989 from medical conditions or accidents. None was firearm related. But the IRS isn’t the only governmental agency building up massive caches of guns and bullets. OpenTheBooks.com, a nonprofit government watchdog group, released a report called “The militarization of the U.S. Executive Agencies” in December 2020, detailing how agencies that people wouldn’t normally associate with law enforcement were stockpiling weapons and ammunition. The Environmental Protection Agency owns 600 guns. At the same time, special agents at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration are equipped with machine guns and AR15s. Even the Smithsonian Institution employed 620-armed “special agents,” up from zero officers in 2008, according to the report. Adam Andrzejewski, CEO & founder of OpenTheBooks.com, told The Epoch Times via email that the public should question why these agencies are armed to the teeth. Not only do they wield legal power, but they are also amassing firepower. “Just who are the federal agencies preparing to battle?” Andrzejewski wrote. Andrzejewski said there is no public purpose for rank and file, paper-pushing federal agencies to load up on guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment. “Our data shows that the federal government has become a gun show that never adjourns. Taxpayers need to tell Washington that police powers belong primarily to cities and states, not the feds,” he stated. Armored Republic The Mission of Armored Republic is to Honor Christ by equipping Free Men with Tools of Liberty necessary to preserve God-given rights. In the Armored Republic there is no King but Christ. We are Free Craftsmen. Body Armor is a Tool of Liberty. We create Tools of Liberty. Free men must remain ever vigilant against tyranny wherever it appears. God has given us the tools of liberty needed to defend the rights He bestowed to us.

Who ya gonna call? Assuming that you don’t have the number for the Ghostbusters, you’ll probably dial 911. But in a number of cities, the odds that anyone will be available to respond quickly enough to save you have been dropping. The problem has grown serious enough that even the Associated Press has been forced to cover the story. They begin with an interview with George Spaulding of Portland, Oregon. Five years ago, his son Brian was shot to death in his apartment. Though George checks in with the detective assigned to the case frequently, the police say they still have no leads. But even George admits that the police are simply overwhelmed and they probably just don’t have the manpower to assign anyone to really work the case full time. And it’s not just Portland where this is happening. Response times to emergency calls are rising and the number of criminal cases being closed are falling in many cities. From Philadelphia to Portland to Los Angeles, killings and gun violence are rising at the same time officers worn out by the pandemic and disillusioned over the calls to divest from policing that followed George Floyd’s murder are quitting or retiring faster than they can be replaced. Departments are scrambling to recruit in a tight labor market and also rethinking what services they can provide and what role police should play in their communities. Many have shifted veteran officers to patrol, breaking up specialized teams built over decades in order to keep up with 911 calls. If you read through that entire report, the AP cites statistics and provides quotes from various officials in five cities. Take a look at this list of names and see if you notice anything in common. Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Baltimore are all cited. It should come as no surprise to most of our readers that these are all cities that were subjected to violent BLM riots during the Summer of Love and all of them later attempted to “defund the police” in various ways. Now crime rates are up in each of those cities, particularly violent crime rates. Response times are up and case closure rates are down. The police forces in each of those cities have been depleted and they are struggling to find qualified recruits to replace the officers who have left. (Along with the officers who were killed or too seriously wounded to return to duty in some cases.) Is there any honest person who is having trouble connecting the dots here? The Associated Press gamely quotes one professor from the Crime and Justice Policy Lab at the University of Pennsylvania. He claims that you can’t blame the protests and the defunding movement because “crime is up in many areas,” even where those things didn’t happen. That much may be true, but it’s definitely a lot worse in the cities on this list. How can anyone continue to deny this? Today, we’re hearing complaints from disgruntled and frightened citizens. That’s understandable. But we should also remember that many of those complaining the loudest also helped elect the municipal officials who put all of these policies in place to begin with and bent to the will of the mob. Now they are reaping what they have themselves sown. If you don’t like what’s going on in the streets, take some responsibility yourself and work to put new people in charge who will deal with the situation in a serious fashion. Once you do that, you just might be able to convince some new aspiring law enforcement officers to come to work in your cities. Well, let’s shift our eyes over seas now. Did you know that China, is one of the freest countries in the world?! Nancy Pelosi: “China Is One Of The Freest Societies In The World…” - Play Video https://thepostmillennial.com/watch-pelosi-says-china-one-of-the-freest-societies-in-the-world?utm_campaign=64487 Pelosi says China 'one of the freest societies in the world' She cited Freedom House as a source, but Freedom House, however, does not list China as a free country, calling its government an "authoritarian regime" that has "become increasingly repressive in recent years." Freedom House writes: "The ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP) continues to tighten control over all aspects of life and governance, including the state bureaucracy, the media, online speech, religious practice, universities, businesses, and civil society associations, and it has undermined an earlier series of modest rule-of-law reforms. The CCP leader and state president, Xi Jinping, has consolidated personal power to a degree not seen in China for decades." Freedom House considers the small island nation of Taiwan, however, to be "free," ranking 94/100 on its freedom scale. Perhaps this is what Pelosi was referring to, as she just returned from a trip to Taiwan. Pelosi's Taiwan trip was a huge issue for China, which took the opportunity to engage in a massive show of force over the island. The self-ruling island has faced increased threats of violence from the CCP in recent days following Pelosi's visit to there, to repeated condemnation by the communists. US officials have made clear, though that they do not support an independent Taiwan, despite comments from President Joe Biden that the US would "militarily defend" it. https://twitter.com/i/status/1554169482242916354 - Play Video That was John Kirby for those wondering. https://www.outkick.com/oklahoma-cale-gundy-didnt-want-resignation-football/ ‘VAST MAJORITY’ OF OKLAHOMA PLAYERS DIDN’T WANT CALE GUNDY TO RESIGN: REPORT Many members of the Oklahoma Sooners reportedly didn’t want Cale Gundy to leave the program. The longtime Sooners assistant resigned from his coaching position after he admitted to reading a “shameful and hurtful” unknown word off a players iPad during a film session. He announced his resignation late Sunday night after more than two decades as a coach with the program. Despite his resignation, it sounds like many members of the team didn’t want him to leave. Gabe Ikard reported “the vast majority” of players on the roster didn’t want Gundy to leave. However, it sounds like they couldn’t sway his mind. After more than two decades as a coach with the Sooners and several seasons as a dominant QB in Norman, Gundy is gone because he read a player’s iPad during a film session. As Gundy claimed in his statement, they weren’t his words. He was reading a message on the iPad. ““I want to be very clear: the words I read aloud from that screen were not my words. What I said was not malicious; it wasn’t even intentional. Still, I am mature enough to know that the word I said was shameful and hurtful, no matter my intentions. The unfortunate reality is that someone in my position can cause harm without ever meaning to do so,” the former Oklahoma coach told fans in his resignation announcement. Overall, it seems like this situation spiraled out of control before most people even realized what happened, and that’s backed up by the fact most players didn’t want him to resign. What an incredibly bizarre and strange situation within the Oklahoma football program. This has been your CrossPolitic Daily News Brief… If you liked the show, share it.

Taïwan : la Chine veut-elle vraiment la guerre ? LES INVITÉ.ES : - François CLEMENCEAU - Rédacteur en chef international au Journal du Dimanche - Valérie NIQUET - Responsable du pôle Asie à la Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique, auteure de La puissance chinoise en 100 questions - Frédéric ENCEL - Géopolitologue - Virginie ROBERT - Cheffe du service international des Echos Les tensions continuent de grimper dans la région de Taïwan. Depuis la fin de la visite de Nancy Pelosi sur l'île, la Chine s'emploie à d'importantes manœuvres militaires. Hier, onze missiles balistiques, tirés depuis le continent, ont survolé Taïwan. Des exercices suivis de près à Washington. La Chine a "choisi de surréagir" à la visite de la présidente de la Chambre des représentants a déclaré John Kirby, porte-parole de la Maison Blanche. Ce matin, la Chine a aussi annoncé mettre fin à la coopération avec les Etats-Unis sur plusieurs dossiers, dont celui du changement climatique. Le conflit entre Pékin et Taïpei dure depuis 70 ans. Si Taïwan a bien un gouvernement, l'Empire du Milieu considère l'île comme une de ses provinces. La visite de Pelosi a donc été perçue comme une grave provocation.La Chine a annoncé aujourd'hui vouloir « imposer des sanctions » à la cheffe des députés américains, ainsi qu'à sa « famille proche ». Depuis Tokyo, où elle termine sa tournée asiatique, Nancy Pelosi a voulu calmer le jeu :"cette tournée ne visait pas à changer le statu quo ici en Asie, ni à changer le statu quo à Taïwan". Pendant ce temps, les mauvaises nouvelles se succèdent pour la santé de l'économie chinoise. La croissance fait du surplace depuis la crise sanitaire et la politique « zéro-covid » de Xi Jinping. L'activité industrielle manufacturière aussi a enregistré une baisse en juillet. Enfin, la crise immobilière prend de l'ampleur. De plus en plus de petits propriétaires refusent de rembourser leurs crédits immobiliers pour protester contre des promoteurs multipliant les interruptions de chantiers. Un conflit avec Taiwan pourrait encore davantage plomber l'économie chnoise. L'île se distigue dans l'industrie électronique. Sur le plan géopolitique, la Chine peut compter sur un allié : la Russie . Les deux pays ont de plus en plus d'intérêts communs et la coopération économique et commerciale entre eux ne cesse de faire des progrès. D'où la résistance, chez l'un comme chez l'autre, à une hégémonie de l'hyperpuissance américaine. Un axe Pékin-Moscou qui inquiète l'Occident. Alors, devons-nous craindre une escalade des tensions dans la région de Taiwan ? Le scénario d'une invasion de l'île par la Chine est-il crédible? Comment l'économie chinoise peut-elle se redresser ? L'entente Russie-Chine est-elle une menace pour le monde ?

In this week's episode, we discuss Nancy Pelosi's recent visit to Taiwan. Nancy says she supports Taiwan's democracy while the white house says the exact opposite supporting the "One-China" policy. We discuss the real motives of her visit which may or may not have to do with insider trading. We also discuss the Alex Jones trial where his lawyer "accidentally" sends years' worth of texts to the opposing lawyer completely undermining their entire argument.    Subscribe and leave a 5-star review! ----more---- Our website https://redpillrevolution.co   Protect your family and support the Red Pill Revolution Podcast with Affordable Life Insurance.

Hello and welcome to red pill revolution. My name is Austin Adams, and this is episode number 38 of the red pill revolution podcast. And man O man, it has been an interesting, interesting last week or so we have inched our way closer and closer to what could potentially be a catastrophic disaster for basically the entire world. Uh, basically what's happened recently is Nancy Pelosi has took it upon herself to check on her stock investments.  allegedly, uh, basically going over to Taiwan. And causing what is a international catastrophe with China then Boeing up to the United States and all sorts of craziness. In other news, Alex Jones was accused of perjury after his Sandy hook. Parents' lawyer obtained his test tax messages from his own lawyer. Uh, so that's gonna be something interesting to talk about. I guess Alex Jones is currently, uh, going through legal proceedings regarding, uh, defamation trial or some type of, uh, civil lawsuit regarding the Sandy hook shooting and saying that it did not happen. So we will discuss that, but really today's conversation. Uh, conversation's going to be going over a lot about Nancy Pelosi starting an international incident, and we'll find out why, what China said and everything in between. So stick around on today's episode, number 38 of the red pill revolution podcast. Again, thank you so much for joining. Welcome to red pill revolution. My name is Austin Adams. Red pill revolution started out with me realizing everything that I knew, everything that I believed, everything I interpreted about my life is through the lens of the information I was spoon fed as a child, religion, politics, history, conspiracies, Hollywood medicine, money, food, all of it, everything we know was tactfully written to influence your decisions and your view on reality by those in power. Now I'm on a mission, a mission to retrain and reeducate myself to find the true reality of what is behind that curtain. And I'm taking your ass with me. Welcome to the revolution. All right. Thank you guys so much for joining me again. Episode number 38 of the red pill revolution podcast. And the very first thing that we are going to touch on is the Alex Jones trial. All right. It says this article that I have in front of me right here, it says Alex Jones is accused of perjury after Sandy hook parents' lawyer obtains his text messages and what could be the worst blunder ever by any lawyer at all ever  which quite atrocious move on your lawyer's part to basically completely, uh, send every little piece of evidence they could to the. Opposing team's lawyer.  literally the worst thing you could possibly do. So we'll read through this a little bit, this article here about it, and then we will watch the clip of Alex Jones basically caught with his pants down. I have my own opinions on this. I have my own opinions about Alex Jones. Um, but whatever you believe about it, this is pretty hilarious. So what this article goes on to. Is that the lawyer representing Sandy hook parents in Alex Jones' damages trial said Wednesday, that Jones' lawyer sent him years worth of text messages and emails from Jones's phone. It goes on to say that Jones who was repeatedly says, has repeatedly lied, that the Sandy hook shooting was a hoax has already been found liable in defamation cases, brought by families of the victims. The Texas jury in the damages trial will determine how much Jones owes victims' parents after publicly making false claims. What they're saying, uh, 12 days ago, your lawyer messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone with every text message you've sent for the last two years. That is how I know you lied to me. When you said you didn't have text messages about Sandy hook. And that is the attorney mark Bankston, who is the attorney for the Sandy hook victim's family. And this was on Wednesday, uh, today. And, uh, so it goes ahead and says that worth noting judge Maya, Guerra gamble of the Travis county district court, who is presiding over the case, told jurors the contents of Jones' phone were not properly turned over when it should have. Okay. Well, if you watch this clip of Alex Jones is the judge on this case. It's like pretty apparent that this judge is just wants nothing to do with Alex Jones is fed up with his trial is a little agitated by anything and everything that he does. . So let's go ahead and watch this clip here, because again, it's, you know, I have my own thoughts about Alex Jones. You know, like everybody, uh, says he's got this crazy demeanor about a lot of things. He's been right about several, several things. This is not one of them, in my opinion. Um, this Sandy hook situation is quite atrocious. Just like all of the other mass shootings that we've seen is horrible, horrific. Um, And again, the way that Alex Jones went about it. I I've said this before about shootings. I've said this before about the conspiracy world that comes up when you talk about these, uh, these shootings in these schools. And I, I just don't, I think it's off the mark. I don't think that there's crisis actors. And I don't think that, you know, people are going on the stage and, you know, if anything, that's so many loose ends that it, it is just so unprobable. And so sloppy of, of an idea that, you know, to actually implement that there would be so many people who would have to be in on it, that it would just make it such a difficult situation to follow through on. And, and again, there would be so many people who would know what happened there would, it's just a mess. So I, I just don't think that's the likely, the likelihood is there. I don't think that there's a bunch of actors in this situation. I don't think that's what's going on. I do think, however, you. You wanna put on your tin foil hat for a minute, that there is federal agents who are on chatboards with people who are saying horrible, horrific things with these, you know, young people who are in terrible frames of mind who may or may not, uh, talk to them in these types of situations. And there's a lot less loose ends that way. Um, but anyways, let's go ahead and watch Alex Jones, uh, get caught with his pants down here.  every text message he's ever sent over the last several years, being given to a lawyer  this is just worst case scenario, right? Like if you're on a, if you're on trial, you know, for literally anything. Let alone a trial that's getting watched by hundreds of thousands, if not millions and millions of people. And literally the enemy standing across from you in the courtroom has every piece of evidence has every little flirt TA just text message you sent to your wife has every little, you know, bad day that you had every little, uh, I don't know, uh, name that you called a friend that you don't want them to know about. I mean, literally every little dirty secret in those text messages and worst case scenario, it gets sent to the opposite team's lawyer. All right. So  just, uh, I, I, it just horrific situation and, and I guess it raises a lot of questions, right? Like he, the, the lawyer actually goes on to say that your lawyer didn't even. Stop us from bringing this to court, right? Like your lawyer didn't even attempt to write his wrong. And literally in any situation as a lawyer, how are you not checking the recipients of your text message that you're sending everybody or, or every text message ever that somebody's ever sent that you are defending? I dunno, it just seems like a crazy, crazy happenstance to find yourself in. If you're one of the most controversial figures ever, literally one of the first people ever to get banned on all social medias before even Trump got there, you know, is quite impressive if you ask me, but alright, here's the clip. We'll go ahead and watch it. And, uh, I think it's just about a minute or so, so we'll see what, what it, what goes on on it. Here we go. So you did get my text messages and it said you didn't nice trick. It's just  yes. Mr. Jones. Oh, indeed. You didn't give this text message to him. He doesn't, you don't know where this came from. Do you know where I got this? No. This lawyer sounds like an evil villain  because yes, Mr. Jones, indeed, I do have these text messages. , it's every evil villain of every animation ever. I'm just gonna restart that for you. So you can actually listen to this beautiful evil villain laugh by this lawyer. Once he feels like he has Alex in the corner. I can't imagine how excited this lawyer was to actually get this trial, especially in a time where I don't know if there's been any other specific time in history where court cases have been so publicized and, uh, you know, just so in the public eye as the last six months or so even. Um, but anyways, listen for this beautiful, beautiful Disney villain laugh by this lawyer. So you did get my text messages and they said you didn't nice trick. That's just not . Yes. Mr. Jones. Oh, indeed. You didn't give this text message to him. You don't, you don't know where this came from. Do you know where I got this? No. Mr. Jones, did you know that 12 days ago, 12 days ago, your attorneys messed up and sent me an entire digital copy of your entire cell phone with every text message you've sent for the past two years. And when informed. Did not take any steps to identify it as privileged or protect it in any way. And as of two days ago, it fell free and clear into my possession. And that is how I know you lied to me. When you said you didn't have text message about saying, okay. Did you know that? I see, I told you the truth. This is your Perry Mason moment. I gave them my phone and Mr. Jones, you need to answer the question? No. Did you notice? No, I don't know this happened, but I mean, I told you I gave him the phone over. Just that, just answer the question you said in your deposition, you searched your phone. You. And that's where we really, you can start to see the judge just like rolling her eyes about the whole situation. She's just so fed up with having to actually sit here and do this trial. You know, she, she goes on, if you listen for her, you'll hear just the irritation and agitation in her voice. As she's speaking to somebody, you know, being Alex Jones on this trial. And then she actually directs it a little bit at the other lawyer because she probably feels the need to balance out her frustration  for the public eye's sake. Um, but you just listen for how frustrated and how like agitated. She sounds with Alex Jones. You said you pulled down the text, did the service function for Sandy hook? That's what you said, Mr. Jones. Correct. And I had several, several different phones with this number, but I did. Yeah, well, of course. I mean, that's why you got it. No, Mr. Jones. That's not why I have my lawyer sent it to you. But I'm hiding it. Okay. Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones, that just answer questions. There's no question, Mr. Bankson also only asks questions. Sure. Mr. Jones, in discovery, you were asked, do you have Sandy hook, text messages on your phone? And you said that under oath, cause you not didn't you. I, if I was mistaken, I was mistaken, but you, you got the messages right there. You know what perjury is, right. I just wanna make sure, you know, before we go any further, you know what it is? Yes, I do. I mean, I, I'm not a tech guy. I told you, I gave in my testimony, the phone to the lawyers before, whatever. And, and so you've got my phone, but we didn't give it to you now, Mr. Jones, one more time. And please remember if you need to assert fifth amendment, you can, I need to know that you can do that, but you testified, so you did. He goes on to say, if you need to assert the fifth amendment, you can, like the other team's lawyer is telling him, maybe you should be quiet at this point is hilarious. Like how many times has that happened in court? Like, Hey, if you don't wanna go to jail for perjury, maybe just maybe just sit this one out. Maybe just say you don't know  so again, I, I find this to be interesting. I, I think that it's, uh, what a horrible position to find yourself in. I, if you're in any courtroom at all the actual other team's lawyer and what is he gonna do with this? Right. I mean, I'm, I don't know what type of, you know, there is client attorney privilege and there's, this does raise questions about whether or not Alex Jones gets some ability to say that there's like some type of mistrial, but I guess, because it's a civil case and not a. You know, some type of, um, actual, what is it called? I don't know, whatever the other type of case, it's a civil case. So the actual ability to, uh, call it a mistrial or whatever, doesn't actually come into play here. Uh, so interesting. But he may be actually able to go after this lawyer, from what I understand for doing that, because he literally just killed his entire case, right? The, the lawyer has a responsibility to do his best to defend him regardless of the situation. And part of that probably does not have to do with sending the other team's lawyer.  every text message you ever sent ever.  over the last two years. Um, so unfortunate for Alex Jones. Uh, it'll be interesting to see what comes of that trial. You know, who see, who, who knows how much money they'll actually get out of him for that. It seems like, you know, just looking at the. Uh, the judge in that case, Alex Jones is gonna lose . So it'll be interesting to see how much money actually comes of that for those parents. But I don't know something to watch. It's I, I bet you, it's probably the most entertaining trial. Uh, Alex Jones is far more, well, you call him what you want, but he is far more entertaining than any of the other trials that we've seen, whether it's Kyle written house, whether it is, uh, you know, um, pirates of the Caribbean trial, that's been going on Amber herd and Johnny Depp, you know, but Alex Jones is far more entertaining, so at least, you know, gives us some good comedy.

What we're gonna be discussing is Nancy Pelosi throwing the very first punch in what could cause a domino effect into a potential world war. As we saw her go on a trip to Taiwan this week, over the last couple of days, she was in Taiwan taking 90 million of taxpayer money to be escorted with unbelievable military presence to get there. Now, the reason that she went was obscure, she wouldn't tell people why she was actually going to Taiwan, but. Some people have some theories and I have my own, and we will discuss those as well. But let me go ahead and read this article for you, because it will give us some context. We'll look at some of the timelines of what actually went on here. Uh, and I, and I think it's important to note what's gonna be happening moving forward, because basically where we're at now is that the us is going to keep Naval assets really close to Taiwan. As China begins to ramp up their own Naval deployments and military actions and exercises, which I, I think is like, kind of weird, right? Like what is an, what is a military exer like live fire drills? What's that doing? I don't know. Um, but let's go ahead and we'll read this article and see what they have to say about Nancy Pelosi. Um, so what it goes on to say is that Nancy Pelosi went to Taiwan. In high ranking, Chinese officials issues, a new threat over Pelosi's expected visit to Taiwan. That was the very first article surrounding it. The next one goes on to say that that Taiwan is going to be keeping their military, or I'm sorry, their military assets, uh, in ready formation as this situation unfolds. So when she went to Taiwan, there's, there's a few different situations surrounding this. We'll look at what the white house has to say about it. Well, look what Nancy Pelosi's own Twitter account has to say about it, which is completely contradictory. Uh, but, um, it goes on to say that according to the us Navy, the us Ronald Reagan, USS anti M USS Higgins, USS triple E, and a guided missile cruiser are in the vicinity of Taiwan and overstaying. After her movement reports also indicate that the two us Naval submarines are also operating in this area. And so it says the movement of war us warships to the east of Taiwan comes as China announced it was moving Naval assets near Taiwan ahead of targeted military drills and missile tests. In addition to various Naval war movements, two Chinese aircraft carriers left their port as speaker Pelosi arrived in Taiwan. The two aircraft carriers, uh, are expected to move towards the region. The ships are accompanied by type 0 75 amphibious assault ships. All right. So basically what that's saying is that the us is not going anywhere right now, right? The us is going to stand their ground in Taiwan, which is also contradictory basically to what, uh, the white house said, which will watch again here. Some of the situations that unfolded there and what the white house speaker actually, you know, had to say about it. Um, but China is going to begin a set of unprecedented live fire drills off of the Taiwan coast as a result of this. Okay. It goes on to say that this is from, this is from the guardian. It says China is to begin a series of unprecedented live fire drills that would effectively blockade the islands of Taiwan just hours after the departure of us house speaker Nancy Pelosi, whose controversial visit this week has sparked fears of a crisis in the Taiwan. Straight Taiwan is characterized the drills, which will last until Sunday afternoon and will include missile tests and other military operations as close as nine miles to Taiwan's coastline. As a violation of international law ahead of the drill, it says 27 Chinese war planes had enter its air defense zone. Pelosi arrived in Taipei on Tuesday night, under intense global scrutiny and was met by the foreign minister and the us representatives in Taiwan.  she addressed Taiwan's parliament on Wednesday before having public and private meetings with the president, our delegation came to Taiwan to make unequivocally clear. We will not abandon Taiwan. And we are proud of our enduring friendship. Pelosi said, which again goes completely against what the Weis house had to say about this with their one China policy and believing that Taiwan is its own, you know, sovereign nation. No, , that's what the white house said. They believe that, you know, basically that it's a part of China, which is what we'll see here in this video. So let's go ahead and see what. The white house had to say about this. We'll see what the text messages were said by Nancy Pelosi. And actually let's go right into that here, which is Nancy Pelosi's tweets, not text messages, sorry.  Nancy Pelosi's tweets. So Nancy Pelosi tweeted by traveling to Taiwan. We honor our commitment to democracy, reaffirming that the freedoms of Taiwan and all democracies must be respected. And that was directly from Nancy Pelosi's Twitter account. During this now Nancy Pelosi actually posted what seemed to be a hype video around her, her trip to Taiwan, which I feel is hilarious. Even like, listen to the music of this. And I'll kind of talk you through it if you're just listening here. Um, and then we will walk through the article together. So you hear this uplifting music as they show her landing and walking next to some Taiwanese people. She's speaking on a couch, waving her fist around as people wave their heads as a, in a yes. Motion. just like the music kills me on this. You know, just how, how, you know, she went to stock media.com and typed in make people like me. So I guess you could receive some type of honor as a result of this, you know, that hasn't been given to other people. Um, I don't know. It's, it's really quite interesting to just, you gotta see this video, go to Nancy Pelosi's Twitter account. It's hill Larry to see just the, the vibe and the feel of this video here. They're taking selfies together. Oh, the good thing she's wearing a mask. She might start a world war, but Nancy Pelosi is at least wearing a mask in her hype video who cares about the, the fighter jet scrambled to run after her. At least she has her mask on Oh, it's so funny to see the world politics on this stage. It's like, I'm surprised this woman even wants to travel to Taiwan at this point. Um, I don't know. So let let's go over the timeline here. We'll, we'll look at something here, which, you know, in a minute, what we'll look at is the difference between the way the media has addressed. You know, the headlines that have come out of this for Nancy Pelosi doing this, you know, very, um, what people say about it is somewhat aggressive act, uh, uh, and foreign policy against some of the things that we have said we would follow in the past, including our own white house. I don't know what this, this guy is not the curly headed lady, but the man, um, I don't know what his title is, but he says some, some stuff about what the us policy is about this, and it goes completely against it. But let's look at the timeline here of what actually went down, what actually happened and see how China responded. Let's just jump into it. So it says. Footage uploaded by civilians in China. So this was breaking news is they started to show China, basically throwing a bunch of military assets on the border of Taiwan, right? The immediately close vicinity of a city directly across from Taiwan. And it says that footage uploaded by civilians in China show, large military movements of troops and equipment. And speaker Pelosi is expected to arrive in Taiwan shortly. The large military movements have occurred on major highways and railways throughout the Chinese Providence of Fujian. Um, this was at 1:01 AM Pacific time and it says commercial fights have been abruptly canceled from airports in several cities, um, in the Fujian Providence. And this was, uh, due to regional traffic control and did not elaborate further for the actual cause of that 1 0 7. Um, the mayor of Ziman, I don't know if I'm pronouncing any of these cities, right? So my apologies has called on citizens to donate blood without detailing. Why at one 11 Pacific time photos coming in the military movements. One 14, the Chinese aircraft carrier is reportedly moving towards Taiwan in additional ship in Chan. Don was reported to have left Sanya Naval base on yesterday. 1 21. They continue to talk about the USS Ronald Reagan is on course towards Taiwan reports, estimated that the shift could arrive in Taiwan in the next six hours. And then we start to see us military aircraft departing Japan and heading towards Taiwan from, uh, air force based. OK, Okinawa, um, 1 37. You start to basically what ends up happening here is a bunch of military aircraft, a bunch of tanks, a bunch of all this military equipment is being shown as traveling all across China, to get over to the streets of Z to show Chinese, uh, military equipment. There's all these videos of all these people we're posting about it now. It started to say how Nancy Pelosi is gonna basically take a long way around to get there. You know, obviously because she understands what she is doing. And again, we'll talk about why people think she's actually doing what she's doing, which has to do with more. So her stock investments, as opposed to, you know, maybe us foreign policy, as we see the white house distance themselves from her. And, uh, let's go see. So at 4:57 AM Pacific time, that's 7:57 AM the morning of this happening. Multiple Taiwanese government websites went down, right? All they got shut down, which included the actual taiwan.gov website. So. From there, we start to see her travel. Now, if you were following this at all, you'd understand that there there's something called the flight radar 20 four.com, which is where you can follow military aircraft follow any type of aircraft that has any type of radar system that you can track through air traffic control. And there was over 300,000 people following this single plane of Nancy Pelosi, just praying to see it.  go down. You know, we've seen all of these, you know, hilarious comments about this. You know, people are just saying like, you know, just keep her, we don't, we don't want her anyways, if you want to, you know, shoot her down. Oh, no, we're so sad about it.  uh, I'll, I'll hold my opinion on it. Um, but there was some pretty hilarious comments. If you start to look at these things, um, but everybody was watching this 300,000 people across the world were watching her plane. I imagine be sitting in that aircraft and, and wondering what's gonna actually happen. I don't know it, it would be if you're Nancy Pelosi and you're all dressed up in your suit and ready to go take on, you know, Taiwan foreign policy or show your support for them. And you're just wondering if at any moment your aircraft could be shut down. Now I would wonder, you know, why they wouldn't turn off their radar. Um, so you know, what is more likely to me is that that was probably some type of, you know, if they're spending 90 million for her to be there, they're probably sending a couple planes and making one as a decoy. Um, but imagine being the, the pilot on that plane too, like, you didn't even ask for this, right? You're not going to check on your billion dollar stock investments in Taiwan. You're just flying planes, wherever your command tells you to fly them.  and all of a sudden you have to fly Nancy Pelosi through enemy territory to Taiwan. Wondering if at any moment you're gonna get shot down. For Nancy Pelosi to go check on her stock investments. Which again, we'll talk about here in a minute.  at 7:01 AM. China closed the Taiwan straight for commercial air tra air traffic control. Um, and then they started to scramble, uh, 7 21, which was 20 minutes later. Taiwan started to scramble fighter jets to intercept Chinese or, uh, aircraft heading towards the country. All right. Now, Nancy Pelosi later released a state.  and, uh, this beautiful picture of her with her hands up, you know, if you recall her rubbing her fist together and just so excited to clap for Joe Biden, um, but it kind of look like one of those situations, she's quite the awkward character. Um, it says our congressional delegations visit to Taiwan honors America's unwavering commitment to support Taiwan's vibrant democracy. Our visit is a part of broader trip to the end of Pacific, including Singapore, Malaysia, South Korea, and Japan focused on mutual security, economic partnership, and democratic governance. Our discussions with Taiwan leadership will focus on reaffirming our support for our partner and our, and on promoting our shared interests. It's interesting that she calls them her partner. Our partner, right? Our partner.  not, not the United States partner. All of, all of ours, uh, all of our partners, um, which again, the white house begins to distance themselves from her as a result of this. Uh, but it says our discussions with Taiwan leadership will focus on reaffirming our support for our partner in on promoting our shared interest, including advancing free and open endo Pacific region. Uh, America's solidarity with the 23 million people of Taiwan is more important today than ever as the world faces a choice between autocracy and democracy. Our visit is one of several congressional delegations to Taiwan in no way, contradicts longstanding United States policy guided by Taiwan relations active 1979, us China joint and the six assurances. The United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo. Now things started to escalate here and what we've seen as a result of all of this, uh, you know, basically the very next, you know, several, several hours later, the China's military started to announce that it was going to launch targeted military operations to counter speaker Pelosi's visits, Taiwan, the military added it would resolutely, defend territorial integrity and national sovereignty. And they didn't say where they were aiming that at. They didn't say specifically in Taiwan, they didn't know anything specific about it just said that they're willing and able to conduct targeted military operations. Now they go on to seemingly say that they're going to be doing live fire drills. And again, this is my question is like, what does a live fire drill? What does that look like? Why would you, how does that, are you just like flexing your muscles before a fist fight? Like what, what is the point of that? Right? They showed the actual tra air traffic zones, like the, the fight areas that are gonna be sectioned off as a result of this. But who knows what's gonna come of this? I think this is the very beginning of what's gonna escalate. Uh, I, I just don't see that this saber rattling doesn't turn into something more, but we will see here in just a moment, you know, very shortly, just a few minutes here, we'll see how the white house responds to this, including what, uh, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said about it. Um, China summon the us ambassador in China over speakers, uh, visit to Taiwan. China says it will carry out targeted military operations in response to the visit. And then the Pentagon press secretary John Kirby says that speaker Pelosi has a right to visit Taiwan. He adds that the United States believes China will ramp up military activity around Taiwan in the coming days. And then also said that they support the one China policy and will continue to support speaker Pelosi's trip. They basically say that like, yeah, she can do whatever she. Okay then let her do it. If she wants to go to Taiwan to check on her investment portfolio with microchips, then maybe she shouldn't be using $90 million of taxpayer money to do so. Maybe she should fly Delta.  like, see if the Delta airliner gets shot down, not a, you know, billion dollar, uh, you know, F 35 as a result of a dog fight that that came of this. So let's go ahead and watch this video. And then we'll talk about some of the, the preceding statements by the people in China, as well as the United States. But here is the Pentagon press, secretary, John Kirby, and his statements regarding this trip now on Taiwan. Cause I know that's on, uh, everybody's mind today. I wanna reaffirm that the speaker has not confirmed any travel plans and it is for the speaker to do so. And her staff. So we won't be commenting or speculating about, um, the, the stops on her trip. We have been clear from the very beginning that she will make her own decisions. And that Congress is an independent branch of government. Our constitution embeds a separation of powers. This is well known to the PRC, given our more than four decades of diplomatic relations, the speaker has the right to visit Taiwan and a speaker of the house has visited Taiwan before, without incident, as have many members of Congress, including this year, the world has seen the United States government be very clear that nothing has changed. Nothing has changed about our one China policy, which is of course guided by the Taiwan relations act. The three joint us PRC communicates in the six assurances. We have said, we have repeatedly said that we oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo. From either side, we have said that we do not support Taiwan, independence. And we have said that we expect cross straight differences to be resolved by peaceful needs. We have communicated this directly to the PRC at the highest levels. If you don't support Taiwan independence, then why is the speaker of the house going on to Twitter, supporting Taiwan independence? I just don't get how we can have such a disconnect between the third, second, third in line for the presidency. If Joe Biden dies tomorrow of old age COVID cancer or falls up the stairs, walking to get onto his plane, who's gonna take the presidency. Well, it's Kamala Harris and then it's Nancy Pelosi, who, again, we might have to worry about dying of old age at the same time, but if she's going on to these world stages and she is showing on Twitter, literally on Twitter. Saying that she supports Taiwan's democracy. We will have to choose between an and a democracy. We are showing our support of the democratic state. She's literally saying that she supports Taiwan's independence in almost every tweet that she talked about on this. And then he comes out here and, and it's all has to do with this gaslighting. Right? And he, you know, they've been gaslighting the American people for three years, and now they believe that they can not only Gaslight the people, they can Gaslight the Chinese government into thinking that, you know, we're not, we're not doing anything over here. We, we have nothing to do with our third in line for the president of the United States, making a direct attempt at threatening the sovereignty of a, some nation. You believe to be yours. It's it's it's I don't even know what to describe it as, but it's almost. As insulted as I feel when they Gaslight me, the Chinese government has to be like, yeah, what are you saying? I'm looking at Twitter right now. And Nancy Pelosi is saying that she supports the democracy of Taiwan. How do we misconstrue this? Because this man is 700 positions below Nancy Pelosi. He is not even close to this. And by the way, what the hell are these positions? Like the press secretary, the Pentagon press sec, the white house, press secretary, the Pentagon press. Secretary. What is this position for? What is this man doing besides literally getting paid to lie? About everything and read from a book, like how, how do you even get do for when you go through the interview process to be a press secretary, do they make you read Dr. Seuss allowed to people and see how convincing you can read Dr. Like, what is the process to become in this position? How much money do they get paid to literally just stand up there, sift through pieces of paper and lie about every single thing that they're talking about at all times. I don't know. It just seems like such a ridiculous position. Why don't you have the president of the United States speak to us? Oh, because then you'd have to find somebody and put somebody in that position who has the ability to form sentences. Right. That might be a problem anyways. So let's, let's watch the rest of this, but again, how I, I just don't see how you can have such conflicting conversations surrounding this. How, how the, the Pentagon press secretary can come out and say that we support the one China policy. We believe Taiwan is a part of China. And at the same time, the third, second, third in line for the presidency is going to Taiwan and saying she supports their democracy. I don't know, including as recently as last week and the phone call between president Biden and president she, the national security advisor, the secretaries of state and defense, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff have also made this very clear to Beijing in a half a dozen recent high level conversations put simply there is no reason. For Beijing to turn a potential visit consistent with longstanding us policy into some sort of crisis or conflict, or use it as a pretext to increase aggressive military activity in or around the Taiwan straight. There's no reason to turn this into anything. There's no reason at all. That's why we sent 26 F 30 fives. I'm making that up. However many fighter jets they sent surrounding her aircraft. However many huge ass military assets, $90 million of taxpayer money is what was expected to come of this trip to ensure her security so that she could go again. And again, we'll look at this article, but check on her stock investments, 90 million, if you believe. It's just so baffling to me that they can even say that. Why, why, why do you guys have a problem with this what's wrong? We didn't do anything. We didn't do anything. It's like a six year old with a cookie in their mouth telling, you know, telling you they didn't grab the cookie off the counter. Right. And they got chocolate all over their face. Why are you up so upset? We didn't eat the cookie. It's so stupid. And yet over the weekend, even before speaker Pelosi arrived in the region, China conducted a live fire exercise. China appears to be positioning itself to potentially take further steps in the coming days. and perhaps over longer time horizons. Now, these potential steps from China could include military provocations, such as firing missiles in the Taiwan straight or around Taiwan operations that break historical norms such as large scale air entry into Taiwan's air defense identification, zone ages. I think you all know that acronym, air, or Naval activities that cross the median line and military exercises that could be highly publicized. This could also include actions in the diplomatic and economic space such as further spurious legal claims by Beijing's public assertions last month, or I'm sorry, like Beijing's, uh, public assertions last month at the Taiwan Strait is not an international waterway. Some of these actions would continue concerning trend lines, uh, that we've seen in recent years, but some could be of a different scope and scale. The last time Beijing fired missiles into the Taiwan Strait was 1995 and 1996. After Beijing reacted provocatively to Taiwan's president's visit, uh, to deliver and address at his Alamo mater. I wanna contrast this now between the United States and China, we and countries around the world, believe escalation serves no one Beijing's actions could have unintended consequences that only serve to increase tensions. Meanwhile, our actions are not threatening and they break no new ground, nothing about this potential visit potential visit, which oh, by the way, has precedent would change the status quo and the world should reject any PRC effort to use it to do so we will not take the bait or engage in SA rattling. At the same time, we will not be intimidated. We will keep operating in the seas and the skies of the Western Pacific as we have for decades. We will continue to support cross straight peace, stability, support, Taiwan of course, defend a free and open endo Pacific. And we're still gonna seek to maintain lines of communication with Beijing. All of that is important. And all of that, all of it is preserving the status quo. We expect to see Beijing continue to use inflammatory rhetoric and disinformation in the coming days. United States by contrast will with transparency will. I am absolutely 100% positive. The United States will act with transparency as always as shown over the last three years. oh man. Gosh, this man, at least he's better than, uh, the other woman, the white house, press secretary at convincing people and holding a straight face and being able to finish a sentence. You know, at least it's not as insulting when this man lies to our face. I don't know it. It's it's funny. We're gonna read through all of the tweets that Nancy Pelosi had here. I have him pulled up, so we got 20 seconds left in this. I'll I'll give you the rest of the clip here and then we'll, we'll walk through those end up here. We'll answer your questions. We'll give you the facts. We are also committed to keeping open lines of communication with Beijing. As I said, this is what the world expects of, not just the United States, but of China. And we encourage Beijing to keep that commitment as well. One of the main things that he said there was that we continue to support the one China policy, right? The one China policy is the fact that China believes that they own Taiwan, right? That's the major overlying theme of the one China policy. Now, as Nancy Pelosi says on the backs of that, and the very first tweet that we see about this, well, maybe the second one, she says the United States  the United States continues to oppose unilateral efforts to change the status quo. Our visits is one of several congressional delegations to Taiwan and it in no way contradicts longstanding United States policy guided by the Taiwan relations act in 1979, she goes on to say that our delegations visit to Taiwan honors America's unwavering commitment to supporting Taiwan's vibrant democracy. Our discussions with Taiwan leadership reaffirm our support for our partner and promote our shared interest, including advancing a free and open Indo-Pacific region. Her very next, uh, tweet says by traveling to Taiwan, we honor our commitment to democracy. If you recall, China is not a democracy reaffirming that their freedoms of Taiwan and all democracies must be respected. The next tweet says our visit reiterates that America stands with Taiwan, a robust, vibrant democracy in our important partner in the endo Pacific. And this, this picture that she's in here outside. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 other people all in masks. And they're all in like black suits and she's in like a pink suit in the middle that like, somebody dressed her in , but they're all in masks, which again, you're outside. What are you doing? And even if you're inside, what are you doing? The very next post says, I like how she's like following a timeline here. Well, obviously she's not tweeting these. I would be highly, very, very surprised if Nancy Pelosi was actually on Twitter or knew how to use it in her age, but, um, in the recent days. Yeah. And she kind of moves on from the Taiwan situation. Uh, let's see if she has anymore here. Nope. She moves on. So, um, the last one that she said was, uh, about 17 hours ago and it said our delegation had the distinct privilege of meeting with the president of Taiwan. We discussed how America and Taiwan can deepen our economic ties. And by that she means her investments in longstanding chip companies.  we discussed how America and Taiwan can deepen our economic ties, further strengthen our security partnerships and defend our shared democratic values. Nancy, how do you plan on defending our shared democratic values? When the Pentagon says that they do not support your trip, that they have nothing to do with your trip, that you are going on this trip alone and they won't tell us why. And speaking of why let's jump into some of the theories allegedly as to why Nancy Pelosi actually went to Taiwan now to be fully transparent. This is not from any legitimate article, but several people online. Who are going to give their opinions as to why they believe that Nancy Pelosi is actually in Taiwan. All right. Now, an interesting situation that occurred was recently Nancy Pelosi actually sold, I believe about 50% or her not her. Of course not her. She would never trade stocks with insider information. It was her husband. He has nothing to do with her. They never share information. They don't talk about things that could potentially make them money. Of course they wouldn't do that. Her husband sold about half of their shares of the Envidia stock. All right. So, um, the first thing that says it's probably something to do with the millions that she just invested into Envidia uh, TSMC is the world's premier provider of Silicon wafer. Their clientele includes apple AMD, Invidia, et cetera. Invidia's particular in particular just realized they bought too much capacity for TM. TMC S's, uh, process nodes. The crash of crypto is to blame for that. The crash of crypto just saw demand for Nvidia GPS plummet. They ordered way too many chips expecting crypto to stay strong. Now as to why she's going there, TSMC will not change the existing deal for the chips. With Nvidia. This puts Invidia in a bad position because demand is now low and supply is going to be enormous. She owns a ton of Invidia stock and that stock price will plummet. If supply isn't reduced in some way, she's probably trying to go to Taiwan to get TSMC, to play ball. She could threaten them directly by holding up the chips act in Congress, costing TSMC, billions TSMC is set to receive money in the aforementioned act to subsidize the construction of a silicone fab in Arizona. It's literally a matter of national security that they build that fab. Otherwise when China sees as Taiwan and they will eventually China will control the best processors on the planet. Uninhibited even Intel is years behind TSM C's design Nancy probably just doesn't wanna lose millions on a bad buy. And she just is throwing her weight around threatening national security to make a few dollars. No Nancy Pelosi would not, not overcome her integrity would not, would not put her reputation on the line to make money. She makes $200,000 a year as the speaker of the house or something like that. Right? That's, that's more than enough to, to house herself in a $10 billion house or whatever the house she lives in.  uh, somebody asks on that thread do, should I buy TSMC stock now before China's takeover and somebody responds and says, China's seizing Taiwan as a matter of when. And they will control a good portion of the computer chip supply. It's one of the easiest annexes in the Asian region, but they won't invade before the us builds its own steady supply of chips because of political fallout, which would last for a duration of half a presidency until the public loses interest in Asians. I didn't say that , um, somebody said that she sold her position in Nvidia. Somebody responded by saying that she sold less than half of it, still 6.5 million position that she's in right now, which is approximately one 20th, maybe not 1 21 16th, one 17th of the total cost of the military tax hours that were spent for her to ensure her own safety, going to Taiwan in the first place. Maybe we can cut a deal with Nancy, like, Hey, don't go to Taiwan and start a world war. And maybe let's just, let's give her like a $2 million, you know, check as a result. And then she doesn't have to go play these little games and, and, you know, potentially cause the deaths of tens of millions of people, somebody else went on the same, speaking on the same subject about the chips, which seems to be a theme regarding this visit. They said that she is going to Taiwan to make a deal about TSMC. TSMC is quite literally a key part of Taiwan's defense strategy. There really isn't much competition with TSMC on the bleeding edge of chip production. And the few people that can compete are still behind them. If they were knocked out of the tech industry would be set back a decade. At least even if competitors Samsung could speed up their development and create a competing node, TSMC represents a huge percentage of the market that, um, that them going down would absolutely cripple tech markets. The other dominance of TSMC and the complete reliance on TSMC by the global tech industry is why Europe United States and China are all investing so heavily in ship. Taiwan, isn't stupid. They know they can't stand up to China and they fight TSM. C's dominance is their defense strategy. Taiwan has made the west so helplessly dependent on them and the west can't afford to let China invade. Pelosi is there to make a deal. I have no doubt. She will line her own pockets in the process, but let's not get ourselves here. Pelosi does not give a shit about the United States. You think she gives a fuck about Taiwan. This person says she will coddle them like the rest of the west until the very moment the us chip fabs can complete can compete and don't need TSMC anymore. The second Taiwan is no longer an integral part of the economy. You can bet your ass. People like Pelosi. Won't give the AODA of a fuck about them anymore.  that was beautifully written. Thank you so much. Um, Again, somebody else said, should I invest in their stock? What happens if the stock value in China captures Taiwan? Um, somebody else said that it's being kept down by the China threats, providing how stupid ball street is insanely undervalued stock. Nothing will happen to TSMC. The tech they use comes from ASML in Europe. If they can rebuild it somewhere else, it can be rebuilt somewhere else in the world. The chip act is supposed, uh, supposed to pay for them to build a plant in Texas. Supposedly Taiwan doesn't want to do it because they don't wanna lose their bargaining chip against China. Interesting. Very interesting. So there you have it. That is the theories behind why Nancy Pelosi is actually going there because she wouldn't tell anybody Nancy Pelosi would not disclose why she was going to Taiwan besides her tweets that make it seem like she's doing it for foreign policy, which is obviously according to most sources and by most sources, I mean, a bunch of random people on the internet  has nothing to do with it. Um, so take it with a grain of salt, but that's what they're saying. All right now, one thing I do find interesting regarding this whole thing is the difference in the way that they headlines reacted to the, to Nancy Pelosi, going to Taiwan and Donald Trump specifically just taking a phone call from Taiwan's president Nancy Pelosi, literally met with Taiwan's president and Donald Trump took a phone call and got just obliterated for doing so. So let's read the headlines. It says Nancy Pelosi tells this is both from the same article or from the same writer from the guardian. And it says that Nancy Pelosi tells president Cy us will not abandon Taiwan. That is the statement made by the guardian about her visit. Okay. Now what they said. When Trump specifically. So if you like recall the way that Trump was treated in the media, it's quite comical to look at the variations compared to that his presidency and no, right. He was just like, you know what I'm saying? It was, it was just the way the media treated him in the headlines was like everything that he did was a national crisis. Every phone call, literally every phone call he took was an atrocious act of self, you know, uh, self help and, and not for our country, you know, everything he did was horrific. So Nancy Pelosi goes to meet the president and the headline is Nancy Pelosi tells president SI us will not abandon Taiwan. The other headline is that Nancy Pelosi's, Nancy Pelosi pledges us solidarity with Taiwan. Okay. Those are your two headlines by the guardian for Nancy Pelosi. Okay. Now. The headlines for Donald Trump. When he specifically just took a phone call, all he did was take a phone call, nothing crazy. The headline was Trump's phone call with Taiwan, president risks, China's wrath risks. China's wrath for taking a phone call, not for flying a plane there with a bunch of military assets to protect him along with all of these aircraft carriers and you know, all of these missiles on top of those beautiful carriers and F 30 fives following in pursuit. And no, none of that just took a phone call. Now let's just read the first little couple sentences here. It says Donald Trump looked to have sparked a potentially damaging diplomatic role with China. On Friday, after speaking to Taiwanese president on the telephone and they move experts, would an expert said would anger Beijing, the call first reported by the TA a times and confirmed by the new financial times is thought to be the first between the leader of the island and us president or president elect since ties between America and Taiwan were severed in 1979 at Beijing's behest. The us closes embassy in Taiwan, a democratically ruled island, which Beijing, Beijing considers a breakaway Providence in the late 1970s. Following the historic re reapproach between Beijing and Washington, that stemmed from Richard Nixon's 1972 trip to China since then the us adhered to the so-called one China principle, which officially considers the independently governed island part of the same single Chinese nation as the mainland. Trump's transition team said Cy, who was elected Taiwan's first female president in January had congratulated the billionaire tycoon on his recent victory. So they start to fear monger. They say that it's gonna be against that just for taking a phone call  now Nancy Pelosi goes there. And all of a sudden the guardian believes that she's doing the right thing, right? that they say that China cannot stop other world leaders. Visiting Taiwan says Nancy Pelosi, right? Singing the praises from the mountain tops. And when Trump takes a phone call, he's dealing with the wrath of China. Wild. All right. And then the last thing that we will talk about here, something that is not in the news, as much as it should be currently is that Paul Pelosi Nancy Pelosi's husband is to be arraigned on DUI charges in Napa county. Paul Pelosi husband, the speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi is scheduled to be arraigned at eight 30 on Wednesday today in Napa county superior court. According to a press release from the Napa county district attorney's office, the DA's office filed charges after Pelosi was arrested for allegedly driving under the influence on May 28th, Pelosi was reportedly in a car accident. The night he was arrested, the charges include driving under the influence of alcohol con causing injury and driving with a zero, uh, 0.08 blood percent blood alcohol level or higher. According to California pen code 1977. Defendants may appear through their attorney for misdemeanor DUI cases, meaning they don't need to be present in the courtroom unless a judicial officer orders. It Pelosi has not been ordered according to the DA's office at arraignment, a judicial officer nor, uh, notifies the defendant of the crimes they have been charged with. Then a formal reading of the complaint can be waived da LA, then the defendant and their counselor can enter a plea. The case may then be continued to another date after a plea charge. Is set in the jury trial. Now it's interesting that he even got charged in this case that he's even going to court and that anybody ever found out about it. I would think if you're Nancy Pelosi and you have the ability to get 90 million to be, you know, your, your fleet of vehicles that you get to take with you to show that you're a thug against the Chinese government, that you know, maybe our own government wouldn't go after your husband for a DUI. Oh, and here's another article showing his mugshot, which is absolutely atrocious. Looks like a, um, methed out author.  it says that mugshot from Paul Pelosi husband, the speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi has been released at the night of the arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence. Last month, Pelosi was arrested on May 28th by the California highway patrol for driving under the influence of alcohol, um, under the suspicion of D a DUI. So I've heard people say that maybe this is, you know, some type of. You know, uh, some, some silly people have reported that. I dunno. It's interesting that at the same time, as she's flying millions of dollars of us tax dollars in military assets to Taiwan, her husband's in court over a DUI for running into somebody. Now, I don't believe this is the first time he's dealt with this. Uh, I've heard, I don't know, maybe I'm wrong, but I've heard that Pelosi's husband has been in this type of trouble before. And he's 82 years old. What are you doing? Getting a DUI at 82.  like, let, like you're getting drunk enough to be over the limit at 82 years old. And then also driving your vehicle. Like, was he like hanging out with the homies at the local bar? I don't know, but here here's what I think. I, I think we're getting into some really iffy waters with this whole worldwide conflict situation between Ukraine and Russia. Right. We haven't seen as much Saab rattling from Russia recently with the United States, but now China entering the arena. We've kind of been waiting on this. We've been looking out for this situation. China has now entered the chat, right? China is now Sabre rattling, not just at Taiwan, but at us leadership in governmental officials. So this is where it starts to get iffy. And if China enters the conversation and Russia's pissed off at us, because we were throwing our buddies in Ukraine, all of the missiles we could find to kill their own citizens. Mm. Things could get squirrly. Right. Uh, again, I've, I've talked about this analogy a bunch, but if you were in a bar and your buddy was in a fight and all of a sudden the guy that he's fighting, his buddy throws him a knife. You're probably gonna throw him a gun. Right. If you have the ability to right. It's like this weird consequence of events, when you're funding the oppositions. Uh, you know, ability to fight against a world superpower. Eventually they're gonna come for you. Right? And now that we have China and Russia entering into this worldwide global arena at the same time, things are just gonna get weirder and weirder. So we're gonna have to see where this goes. I'm not super posi. You know, I'm not super, uh, optimistic that this doesn't go in a direction that doesn't have to lead to some sort of war conflict for the first time between world super powers since you know, 1942. Uh, but hopefully that's not the case, but it's definitely a concern right now. You know, we see all of this weirdness going on, all of the things leading up to this and within a year of presidency, not only does Russia, Ukraine, Russia invade Ukraine, and China's saber raddling at Nancy Pelosi, visiting Taiwan. Again, we're gonna have to see where it goes, but it it's, it's, it's quite concerning. And that's what I got for you today. I hope they gave you an update on Nancy Pelosi. Now, one thing that I would like to do in the future, I'm going to get back to some deep dives. I'm going to get away from all of the political rhetoric that we've been talking about over the last several episodes. We'll include some of the recent events and things like that. But I am going to get back to our roots, which is talking about.  all of the craziness that is going on behind the curtain. Right. I think the next episode, or at least in the very new future, I would like to talk about some of the, the food aspects. Right? You see all of the bugs, they're trying to get you to eat. you see, um, you know, all of this things about seed oils coming out and all of the things that are government in our, you know, uh, worldwide, um, multinational corporations are pushing on us as a, a culture. You see bill gates buying all the farmland, you see China buying all the farmland, you see all of these fad diets coming into play, and, and that have all of these, you know, chemicals and grossness involved. And then in the very near future, we're gonna start bringing on some guests. I'm gonna start doing some interviews with people that I find interesting on topics that I find to be interesting.

The National Security spokesman, John Kirby, has reiterated that Beijing had no reason to react aggressively to the visit of Speaker Pelosi to Taiwan. We speak to a journalist in Taiwan about what people there make of Mrs Pelosi's visit and if they are concerned about Chinese military exercises; and, Steve Chabot, a Republican Congressman and Co-Chair of the bipartisan House Taiwan Caucus, if Mrs Pelosi made the right decision to visit Taiwan.

Peter Lewis: Biden, Xi could meet in person, US official says

President Joe Biden and China's Xi Jinping are exploring meeting in person, a senior administration official said after the leaders spent more than two hours Thursday talking through the future of their complicated relationship, with tension over Taiwan once again emerging as a flashpoint. Biden conducted the telephone call from the Oval Office, where he was joined by top aides, including Secretary of State Antony Blinken. The official declined to be identified to talk about the private conversation. When Biden was vice president, he spent long hours with Xi in the United States and China, an experience he often recalls as he talks about the two countries' opportunities for conflict and cooperation. However, they have not met in person since Biden became president last year. Xi has left mainland China only once, to visit Hong Kong, since the COVID-19 pandemic began. However, he's been formally invited to Indonesia in November for the next G20 summit of the world's leading economies, making the conference a potential location for a meeting with Biden. The latest strain over Taiwan is House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's potential visit to the island, which has governed itself for decades but China asserts as part of its territory. Xi emphasized those claims during his call with Biden, according to China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs. “Those who play with fire will perish by it,” the ministry said. “It is hoped that the U.S. will be clear-eyed about this." The White House released its own description of the conversation about Taiwan, saying that Biden "underscored that the United States policy has not changed and that the United States strongly opposes unilateral efforts to change the status quo or undermine peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.” The goal of the call, which began at 8:33 a.m. EDT and ended at 10:50 a.m. EDT, was to “responsibly manage our differences and work together where our interests align,” the White House said. As usual, China left no doubt that it blames the U.S. for the deteriorating relationship between the two countries. “President Xi underscored that to approach and define China-US relations in terms of strategic competition and view China as the primary rival and the most serious long-term challenge would be misperceiving China-U.S. relations and misreading China's development, and would mislead the people of the two countries and the international community,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said. While Beijing's warning about playing with fire over Taiwan generated attention Thursday, it didn't represent an escalation of Xi's usual diplomatic rhetoric, U.S. analysts said. “There's a whole lexicon of Chinese threat speech that he hasn't touched yet," said John Culver, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council's China Hub. Yun Sun, director of the China program at the Stimson Center think tank, noted that both countries said the conversation covered a wide range of topics, from the pandemic to climate change. She described that as “more positive than the two leaders informing each other, well, we're going to stick to our positions on Taiwan.” She also suggested that Xi may have an incentive to tamp down tensions as he seeks a third term as president. “They cannot afford to have the relationship with the United States ruptured,” she said. The call with Xi took place as Biden aims to find new ways to work with China and contain its influence around the world. Differing perspectives on global health, economic policy and human rights have long tested the relationship — with China's refusal to condemn Russia's invasion of Ukraine adding further strain. Pelosi's potential visit to Taiwan has created another pressure point. Beijing has said it would view such a trip as a provocation, a threat U.S. officials are taking with heightened seriousness in light of Russia's incursion into Ukraine. “If the U.S. insists on going its own way and challenging China's bottom line, it will surely be met with forceful responses,” Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for China's Foreign Ministry, told reporters earlier this week. “All ensuing consequences shall be borne by the U.S.” Pelosi would be the highest-ranking U.S. elected official to travel to Taiwan since Republican Newt Gingrich visited the island in 1997 when he was House speaker. Biden last week told reporters that U.S. military officials believed it was “not a good idea” for the speaker to visit the island at the moment. John Kirby, a U.S. national security spokesman, said Wednesday that it was important for Biden and Xi to regularly touch base. “The president wants to make sure that the lines of communication with President Xi remain open because they need to,” Kirby told reporters at a White House briefing. “There are issues where we can cooperate with China on, and there are issues where obviously there are friction and tension.” Biden and Xi last spoke in March, shortly after the Russian invasion of Ukraine. “This is one of the most consequential bilateral relationships in the world today, with ramifications well beyond both individual countries,” Kirby said. Biden has moved to shift U.S. reliance off Chinese manufacturing, including final congressional approval Thursday of legislation to encourage semiconductor companies to build more high-tech plants in the U.S. He also wants to marshal global democracies to support infrastructure investments in low- and middle-income nations as an alternative to China's “Belt and Road Initiative,” which aims to boost China's trade with other global markets. Biden has kept in place Trump-era tariffs on many Chinese-manufactured goods in order to maintain leverage over Beijing. But he is weighing whether to ease at least some of them to lessen the impact of soaring inflation on American households. U.S. officials have also criticized China's “zero-COVID” policy of mass testing and lockdowns in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19 in its territory, labeling it misguided and fretting that it will further slow global economic growth. Other points of strain include China's treatment of Uyghur Muslims, which the U.S. has declared a genocide, its militarization in the South China Sea and its global campaign of economic and political espionage. - by Chris Megerian, Zeke Miller and Ellen Knickmeyer, APSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
