hello and welcome. So 305 of that TN almost forgot what episode it was proudly brought to you by the world's most persistent, persistently vindicated right wing political network. And my God, James, we're gonna be vindicated today on a lot of a lot of stuff. If you've heard it somewhere, chances are. But somewhere was here. Jasinski feels tournament James also, sir. How are you doing? Well, doing extremely well. Enjoying the lock down and moving from project to project in Ah, this lock down state. It's gardening time. Fan Spring is here. I'm get those. Get those bulbs in the ground bulbs in the ground? Yeah, yeah, things are going well. Just enjoy some time outside myself a little bit. It's good to be outside. I think at this this point a lot of people are. It's been seen pictures from our friends that it's snowing in various places. Um, and this has negated the ability to get out there and, you know, do that gardening bed or like whatever you're going to do I have a bunch of other things I got to do. But I'm gonna think I'm gonna plant some corn this year and, uh, have a little have a little harvest, you know? So, uh, me should be nice. Yeah, I got to do a lot of prep for that. Just because the animals are gonna eat, eat a lot of that stuff, so but it'll be fine. Fun should be good. What else you gonna dio? I mean what this is like the seventh week, and it's not going anywhere. And that's actually a great segue you into the first thing we want to talk about today, which is the the distorted cell of flattening the curve. Um, it's it's more like surfing the death wave, because if you look at this curve, I mean, this is this is the thing that has been used to justify Well, if you do this lock down than everything will be fine. Now that that's a good thing that we did it. I'm still been on that train from the beginning. Still on that train now, Um, it's good that we did it, but the thing that I think was sold to a lot of people is that you would have this symmetrical curve that would go up like a roller coaster and then down very symmetrically from how quickly it rose and what we're seeing in Italy. What we're seeing in Spain and what you're seeing, not even yet in the United States, is it goes up, there's a peak, and then it plateaus for a very long time. And it's just deaths every single day for a very long time. And you saw this in Italy, where you'd have AH have a new peak and then a decrease for three days. And then then maybe not a new peak, but you'd have another sort of higher marker. And so United States hasn't even hit the peak yet, and everybody's declaring that it's the peak already. And that's not actually like how many waves, how many pictures of the flattening? What is the graphic James that you see with flattening the curve every time, right? It's a symmetrical wavelike up and then down, and then it, like, dissipates into nothing. But that right side of the curve has never been this not documented scientifically. Anywhere, like every single wave now is is up and then plateau, and they don't know how long that plateau goes. But as we're going to get into here and explain what this back toe work chump movement by the Trump administration is all about, it is trying to put people back in this position of going back to work, going outside, pretending like we're on the down side of that symmetrical curve when in reality it's gonna be like 2,603,000 deaths a day for an untold period of time. We really don't know how long, really, as we'll find out, it's it's until everybody in the country has been infected or they have a cure or they have treatment like those of the three options, like there's not a back to work chump and curve just goes away like when the weather becomes 70 degrees. That's all been debunked. So yeah, no, that's exactly right. And and you'll see this presented very duplicitous Lee, of course, where you'll see a picture of, like the longer rhythmic rate of increase right and this is this has flattened and people say, Oh, this is great, you know, Pandemic over, like it reached the top and now it's done like No, no, because with it Ah, with that day that death rate, wear it at where where it is, where it where it b where b and how it do. And have you ever been so far as to think? Yeah, with the death rate where it is, then you are still experiencing thousands of deaths per day. It's not as if you've reached this level, and then and then things just go away. So while the while the rate of increase may fluctuate as you know it does, that doesn't mean that fewer people are dying necessarily where the fewer people are getting infected. In fact, we know now it means the opposite. We reached our highest ah, highest deaths per day just this week. Yeah, as they're declaring that we've hit peak and then the numbers keep just staying steady. It's not going down. And when you look at graphs of Italy and you look at graphs of Spain there, they're not there. You're lucky if it's a plateau. In some cases, it's kicked back up. There have been spikes in Europe now Europe cases have now spiked in Spain, Italy, France and Germany and the UK, and you don't have to like a lot of people keep hiding behind this shibboleth of of conflicting data or something. It's like you don't have toe hide behind anything. You can go look at the graph. You can look at what the numbers air doing, and this idea that just a slight decrease stay over day in those numbers is that you're home free and you can just run back outside and run back to work. They're using all kinds of justifications to to make that into a reality, to get everybody back to work. And it doesn't work. I mean, it's not it's not gonna bear out that way. And, ah, the numbers air not going very good for people. And then you run the risk of a second spike. I mean, that's that's the reality of what could happen. Yeah, that's exactly right. And I think we we mentioned this before. But it bears repeating that when you do see decreases in daily deaths or daily infections in an area a state or country that has imposed quarantining measures imposed mandatory mask orders, stay at home Issues like these are the strategies that are used to lower that death rate right to lower the rate of transmission. And when you you present this Ah, this falling raid or this Ah, you know, things coming under control as evidence that it's time to relax these measures. That's the exact opposite of what is going on, right? The measures air working when you see the rate of infection decrease and that is all the more reason to continue using them as you're getting this. And it's like when you're getting a fire under control, it's like, Yeah, okay, this is great. Now Ah, might as well throw in the can of gasoline. It's entirely the wrong approach. It doesn't it doesn't really make sense. And in the long run, this is This is something that we could have avoided. We could have avoided this, and we're gonna be talking a lot about that today. We don't have Why do we have to sustain 2 to 3000 deaths a day like this was entirely avoidable. That's the That's the sad part about it. And it could have been much worse. That's something that Trump wants to hang his hat on. That you know, thank me. for doing such a great job getting this under control. But we have the most number of cases. We have the most number of deaths, and that's inexcusable. This should have been dealt with a lot earlier. End Europe is, ah, harbinger of perhaps what's to come if we start to open things up too quickly because they're they're keeping things in place for a while and they have significant lockdowns and they're already seeing a second spike. And so what this means for the U. S. Is something potentially pretty awful. Trump has caved on his state's right challenge. It's so nice, James. I got to say, It's so nice that you don't have to ride the Trump wave. I mean, we're gonna ride, trumps Death plateau for a while with Corona virus cases. But we don't have to ride the trump roller coaster Of all the people who thought like, yes, Donald Trump is gonna be an authoritarian. I stand with the What is that? I stand with Donald Trump, not the Constitution and all these people who thought that they were gonna get this hardcore president No. 24 48 hours later would we get James he caves, he goes out, he says. We're starting life again. We're starting to rejuvenate the economy again. Where's the cook? He says. You're going to call your own shots. Governors were going to be standing alongside of all of you. It's so nice not to have to put up with, I guess, hanging your hat on. Oh, yes, it Donald Trump is going hard core now and then rallying people into believing that this is gonna happen and, you know, fool me once, shame on you. And we've gotten fooled plenty of times for this guy and no more. We saw with, like, What did I say on the mid we show, I could spend a lot of time explaining, like how gay this is and how how this could be Trump's Jacksonian moment or something. But it's like this is gonna be gay. He's gonna cook. He doesn't have this authority period and a story. And what did he do? He just cooked. Any released this guidance about staying home? Um, that is really I mean, it may. It was. It was designed to increase the stock market. The market rallied by 800 points on that in some promise for some drug from Gilly ad. But then Gilead came out after hours trading and said, Okay, don't get the hopes up on this. The market is overreacting to to the news, so I suspect that's not gonna not going to stick very long. But Trump released these. This guidance that is basically none of it's starting right away. It's all predicated on I don't know, things improving and nothing changes, really. He just wanted to come out and have this. I don't know this this moment where he could say that the that we were going to be easing restrictions. But it's if it until with half of this stuff. And you have the spike of cases in the Heartland now, um, in places that did not have stayed home orders. So you have fires to use your metaphor, starting up again in the middle of the country. And these are the places that Trump wants to target opening up first, you know, go back to work, Trump. You're not have in many cases, but what is it? Oklahoma saw 53% increase in cases over the past week. Eso Arkansas had a 60% increase Nebraska had a 74% increase, 82% increase in Iowa and South Dakota. Saw a 205% spike. So, yeah, these are like the target communities that Donald wants to go back to work first with its South Dakota. That's Ah, that's Governor Christy Nome there. Right? And he's the one that she is, the one that when she was asking Donald about how he doesn't it doesn't really matter. Yeah, Kristie. Well, but she was the one that asked Donald. Hey, Donald, like we're small state, what you gonna do for us? And Don was like, we're gonna be taken care of you so great and then dropped her from the from the conference call. So, yeah, I mean, these are these are the states that were reticent to impose these orders, and now they're paying the price for it. And as we talked about on the mid week program with McNabb a few weeks ago, these air states that do not have the resource is, um, you know, you could say the urban states didn't either, Which is true, the coastal states, but these states, especially don't have the resource is toe whether a situation like this, they don't have the hospitals, they don't have the personnel. They have an older population. That is, that is going to be any Ah, in the medical industry, that is, that is going to be more susceptible to to ah, you know, getting infected. So, yeah, this is a recipe for disaster, and they have a president who is willing to treat them as cannon fodder. And he's doing that now. You have the like, Christy Nome is any. They're using this rhetoric to encourage this. She says we have to trust South Dakotans to exercise their personal responsibility. And then you have Pete Ricketts of Nebraska says this is a program that depends on people exercising personal responsibility in civic duty. This is about making that decision, not the heavy hand of the federal government taking away your freedoms. I'm not even making this stuff up. And this is This is this thing that gets the that gets parroted by boomers parroted by ma goes. And if you keep your keep your bootstraps six feet away from my bootstraps. Good. Yeah, right. I mean, but see, this is the problem, though. Is yeah, the American Heartland is far less dense than New York, but it's home to much of the country's agricultural manufacturing base, and you've already seen food processing plants. Not that I have a problem with Tyson's in Chinese own Smithfield Foods shutting down for other reasons, but you're having these places shut down their closed due to outbreaks that have caused deaths so far with two workers. Um, you know, people might be inclined to believe that every single person working in a Tyson's or Smithfield Foods pops processing plant is a ah, what is that guy's name? Who killed Ah? Who killed that girl in Iowa? Can John, I never remember. And it's such a great name. Yeah, it's these air, these stat. These plants are not entirely staffed by John, but it's a lot of John buds in there. But a lot of them are white guys. A lot of them are people getting sick. A za result of this is a result of the fact that there's no no um no stay at home orders. And Christy Nome insists that the State Home Order would not have prevented Smithfield from happening at all. So yeah, and I mean you have higher prices, potential for food, shortest surges. And it's because Republican governors in the Heartland are following Donald Trump's recommendations. People are dying and it's actually, and this is this is what people have been concerned with and have Point tried to point out to Donald Trump were certainly not advocates of helping out big line fuck Big line Fuck the Jews that are in charge of of the financial markets. But if you really want to prevent big line in help, big line in the long run, it would be to keep things shut down. We care more about saving lives, but But what's counterintuitive, counterintuitive is if they open up the country and you have breakouts at food processing plants and you have things getting shut down and then they have to shut back down again, it's going to get very nasty. It's not gonna be very pleasant for them, right? Yeah, we made this case two months ago that you have to respond hard and fast and deal with the short term pain in order to stave off even worse long term pain. And the uncertainty that is being allowed to foment here is going to be more destructive for big line. In the end, which, you know again, not are. That is not our concern, but it's also going to be more fatal. More people are going to die. And in the case of these, these rural farming communities and red states, you have farms here that the few remaining family farms that are not owned by, you know, corporate mega entity. These places often will run on small staffs. You know they'll be worked by family and people in the community. And if you lose a few of your workers or you lose people, you don't have the ability to harvest your crops and they just rot in the fields. Yeah, a lot of these people are living year to year in term and keeping their business running year to year. And this could be very destructive for for these small, independent family farmers to, But they want to rush back into it because Trump is very short sighted. Um, and he wants this to be turned back on as quickly as possible, his approach essentially so people don't have toe, you know, they rely on us to give them the the actual information. Nobody wants to sit through one of these press briefings, my God. But in phase one, essentially, the plan recommends very strict social distancing for all people in public. Gatherings of larger than 10 people are to be avoided in non essential travel is discouraged. So basically what you have now, but they haven't. They can't start phase one yet because they need 14 days in a row of decreasing cases, which is, I think, pretty generous and face to. People are encouraged to maximize social distancing and limiting gatherings to no more than 50 people unless precautionary measures are taken, Who knows what that means? And then travel could resume. Phase three envisions a return two enormous normalcy for most Americans, with a focus on identification and isolation of new infections. So what's that mean? Nobody really knows. But all of this requires testing, which we haven't seen. It requires actually a vaccine. It requires effective treatment. It requires herd immunity because they're really only three pathways out of this. Like I said, the first is the vaccine. The second is effective treatment for the sick, not just effective at the margin, but effective that catching the disease becomes basically about his worrisome as just the flu, bro. They The only way that you get out of this and any meaningful way is to turn what this is into just the flu, bro. In reality in practice, so that you can go outside and do whatever the fuck you want, and if you get it, there's a treatment for it, and then you don't need testing at that point if they come up with that. But we're really long way away from that. The most optimistic projection for vaccines is that they begin to be available this fall, and that would be insane. The reality is, is that it's going to take one or two years from now to your development cycle would be unprecedented speed for any vaccine, and they've never done one before for Corona virus. So good luck with that effective treatment. There's rendez severe, which they were talking about with Gilly ad and whatever. But it's hard to get this stuff, and it's hard to get very much confidence that they're gonna work and there's no such thing as a miracle cure. And then the other thing is like, could you get 60 to 80% of the population have antibodies, and then you have to have tests for those, I think the more effective test. It's so if you want a good example of how just totally in abjectly retarded this country is. They had Dr Fauci out there. I heard this in the car explaining what testing means. It's insane that they have to explain it this way, but he x here to say, like in very slow, methodical language. If you get a test today, that doesn't mean that two or three days from now, if you come into contact with another person that has the disease, that you are still negative. It means that you have to get a new test to confirm if you have it or not. So you have to get tests maybe once every other day or once a week, because a test of showing negative doesn't mean that you're home free. It's amazing to me that you have to explain this to people that a test, it's like, Yeah, I'm negative today. But if I jump back in the pool with other people that you know might have the virus, it's like I still could get the virus. It's amazing that we have to explain this to people in this country. But I guess that's what you have to dio Half the country doesn't speak English and, ah, you know, is in some level of functional retardation, So yeah, yeah. No, that's Ah, that's Yeah. You know, it is pretty incredible that that's ah, what has to be done here, but yeah, I mean, even if you do get the vaccine rolled out right, that's looking at two years for development. Plus, um, who knows how long until that becomes widely available. And the many of these these medicinal treatments we know that these drugs are not manufactured in the US There will be difficulty in getting them and securing them at a reasonable price. And then when they do, if they do become available, say, for for prescription, what is that going to cost people? Right. And if you don't have insurance, what are you going to have to pay out of pocket to get the treatment necessary for? Don't worry, bro. You're just gonna get You're gonna have to say squirrel away some of that $1200 to cover all these treatments that's, you know, pack it in, chump eso. It's it's just insane. So if you go the antibody route, though, they're saying that you would need 60 to 80% of the population to have anybody. So in anybody, test would be a better measure, because then you're testing people who have already had it in who have built up antibodies. But based on what they think so far, it's between three and 6% of the people in the UK in the United States have had immunity at this point, so 6% across seven European countries. So if you're talking about only 6% infection so far and the point to get to, you know, a place where you can go back to normal is 60 to 80% of the population. So that means we're only 1\/12 of the way through the crisis and actually heard somebody else say that we're only 1\/10. But however you cut it, I mean this idea that our A peak now it's like it's a little bit daunting. It's a little bit overwhelming to think of the fact that you were there's like 2,603,000 people dying a day and only 1\/12 of the way through. So you have these people that are projecting 60,000 deaths. Like guy, we're already at 37,000. How many more days of 2600 dying a day. It's just gonna blow 60,000. Ah, blow the roof off of that. So, yeah, or 4300. And, yeah, you're there within a week, Right? And the, You know, the thing is, these air, all strategies that you use or you have to resort to after the pandemic kicks off. And after it becomes a crisis like this, there are plenty of lessons that could be learned if our system was interested in learning them about how to prevent things like this in the future, including closing borders. Actually, you know, having meaningful restrictions on travel when something like this starts in a foreign country. But I have a feeling those lessons are going to go unlearned. Yeah, it's funny listening to ah, some of the people who are in the camp of wanting to keep things shut down, which which were in that camp. But we just happened to happen to intersect with with liberals. Unfortunately, It's not a terrible thing, but they're not wrong. But what's funny is listening to them get asked questions about Well, wouldn't shutting down the border have helped this even Mawr and they're like, Oh, no, no, no, no, no. Like they still have to keep the stuff to keep that posture and admit that you know, like we have to keep free movement of people in and out of our country. We can't go back to these draconian. It's like I just shut the fuck up like Like, have it have a real position on this. But but even Wall Street has told Trump to keep it shut down. Apparently he had a shit show total shit show of a call with Wall Street bankers and financiers. So, basically a phone call, Jews. Trump had a bridge call with some juice to reopen part of the economy. Um, and he has been. A couple of these people were from hospitality, health care, tech construction, sports, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Um, it had a lot of problems, though Many of the bankers said that they knew nothing about the call until very late Tuesday night. Um, several had quarterly earnings calls that directly conflicted with the timing of the wall. The White House summons Goldman Sachs CEO David Solaiman couldn't be on the call at all because of these earnings. Neither could Jamie Diamond. Um, Brian Moynahan was barely able to get in on the call they had. Ah, another senior executive from JP Morgan attempted to jump on the call in diamonds place. Uh, people said that he couldn't get through for 20 minutes and finally gave up. One executive, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that the call was quote a shit show that produced little of substance. Trump asked several questions, including two Moynahan about how the small business loan program was going. Yeah, I was going, Donald, you fucking orange faggot. It's out of money. It's OK, Brian. How's How's the money going with the burger? It's out of money, Donald out of fucking money. And meanwhile, 43,000 US millionaires got a stimulus averaging 1.6 million each. This is that tax cut. They were talking about that Jared Kushner and friends are benefiting from basically of 43,000 individual tax filers who make at least a $1,000,000 a year, um, saving $70.3 billion as a result of this. So divide that 43,000 ways and then the $1.6 million stimulus I mean, may not be a check in the mail, James, but it's Ah, it's cold, hard cash. Either way, you cut. Yeah, no. And of course, the greatest beneficiaries of this are going to be the hedge fund investors that were applying and finding permutations in the law and not permutations. These were there by design finding finding ways to qualify as small businesses so they could receive the bailout that was designed to go to the mom and pop business on Main Street. And it's these major 100 plus unit real estate investors. People like the Kushner's who are going to be benefiting the most from this. And so then you had ah Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman, who apparently had Corona virus and recovered. He had a pretty mild case, but Trump spent a good portion of the call praising the bravery of James Gorman forgetting the case, and apparently he, like tried toe deflect the praise. I mean, you can always always imagine how that goes Oh, James, You know, you're so brave. It's just shut the fuck up, Donald. But, um, they were starting to get, apparently, according to people who were on the call, they apparently starting to get pretty frustrated. You take all this with a grain of salt or not do it, everyone. But, um, they're getting frustrated with Trump's approach to the crisis. They say that his pressure tactics to open the economy as fast as possible make no sense. If the virus is not fully under control and consumers and businesses don't feel safe to resume anything close to port to normal activities, it's like, why don't you guys just, like, get out of the way and make this bloviating retard like let him do what he wants? Like, I'm just saying. I mean, they don't they don't want to be on the hook, um, for this. But if the guys making a mistake, just let him make the mistake, let him look retarded. And maybe this is why this article is getting put out there, where they're kind of being like, Yeah, we're, you know, we're not really on the side of the president wanting to do this. I mean, sure, they're gonna make money. They're gonna make money. If the stock market goes back up, a big line goes up. But they make a lot of money from volatility anyway. And so they're trying to go on record that Trump's Trump's optics air so bad on this that they're kind of like, yeah, we want to do big line and what not? But this is just suicide, a lot of pain. I think I and I think they're coming out and saying this because they know there is a lot of anger in the country right now. And if Wall Street work to have the appearance of, ah, driving people back out in the streets and we're talking a bit about how unpopular it is to open things back up now, they know that that is only going to lead to further anger at Wall Street. And this is, you know, you can you can read into this this being tactical or whether this is what they really mean. But they're definitely distancing themselves from from Trump's flailing, bloviating response. Yeah, because it's that bad. It's that bad. And they they have had Astro turf this in a very significant way. This is the Astro turf ing and we'll explain that. We're not just, you know, this isn't just hyperbole like, I will prove to you that these that these protests in Michigan, Ohio, Idaho, Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Utah, Oregon, in Texas are all Astro turf. So give it all of the data and we have a lot of it. You don't need to be an epidemiologist to understand any of the above. You don't have to be, Ah, some sort of Wiz kids scientists to look at a graph and realize that the deaths are mounting and it's getting bad. And it's way beyond just the flu, bro. And there's zero case to be made for opening up anything and actually my metaphors that it's like having 80 floors in a 100 story skyscraper on fire and telling everybody it's OK to return to the floors. That may not for the moment, beyond fire. Get back inside, chump, right, just like those floors aren't on fire. So it's fine. Like this is the metaphor with the states that have had relatively low cases. But all of the floors were going to be on fire soon and the Catch 22 in this metaphor is that if you don't send people back into the burning building, the entire city burns down right. Like if he doesn't get people in there as quickly as possible, then the economy is gonna have a much tougher time now. Money, money printer can go Burr up to a point, But you can't have this thing survived on life support for six months or 12 months. It's just insane. So Trump has this dilemma with the economy, and it's really a Jewish dilemma. And there really isn't much of a distinction between Trump's dilemma and the Jewish dilemma. It's sort of one of the same, but there's a real danger of people lashing out at economic circumstances. People who are not Margus. People were not the retards that we've seen in the streets, Um, and these people are lashing out or it's a boiling tempest because these things have been simmering long before the virus ever touched down in America. So people lashing out at Trump Jewish bailouts depleted small business funds measly $1200 stimulus checks, and so thus the attention must be turned to demon rats. Dr Fauci, the media and Shiina, which we're gonna get to in a second. But first you have to see these Astro turf back to work. Trump protests popping up in red states all over the country. And they're doing this as an in before, to the rial angst that they're worried about. They want to have these people out there stamping their feet and making demands. They want to make it seem like there's this groundswell of support to get back to work and whatever. And this is all this is all being pushed by adjacent of the Trump administration. It's not even that many people. These protests have been kind of pathetic. Haven't damning. They've been pathetic. They haven't been thousands of people in the streets. It's like a few dozen in the Virginia capital you had. How Maney in Michigan, James, They're bringing their kids to this. You have some, like three percenters and what? Not there either. Usual crowd. And it's ah, it's really limp wristed. I guess this is the best that Trump can muster, right? I mean, this is the true measure. Yeah, I know. You had Ah, you You had I think the picture that I saw it looked like a few dozen. Ah, was was the extent of it in Michigan. Now they say that there were a lot of people in their cars driving around doing a bit there, too. But, yeah, it's Ah, it's definitely being asked, returned. And this is definitely not not, ah, the majority sentiment as well get to Yeah, I mean, you have people blocking traffic in their cars. But you also had Utah. North Carolina. Ohio saw some demonstrations, with more planned for the coming days in Michigan. Gretchen Whitmer had imposed some of the country's toughest limits on travel in business. And, of course, this is to protect the blacks. I mean, Detroit has had some pretty significant problems, but they had operation gridlock, people waving signs for Trump. But one of the organizers of the demonstration in Lansing, Michigan, machine on Matic, said she was frustrated that much of the media focused on a handful of protesters who gathered on the steps of the Capitol, including militia group members and a man holding a Confederate flag who she said were not part of the rally. It's always the same old story, right? So she faulted Mortimer for dis dismissing the event and demanded that they engaged well. She is one of seven board members of the Republican Aligned Michigan Conservative Coalition. The MCC Uh, who in organized the protest. She's also a board member of the pro Trump Political Action Committee. Women for Trump Women's for Trump. Um, so who is Michigan Conservative coalition? Well, they and the Michigan Freedom Fund are basically all funded by Betsy DeVos is family. Um, Michigan Freedom Fund was founded by again named Craig McNeely is a political adviser to the DeVos family, whose provided all of the Finnish excuse me, all the financial support to the organization. And so you have the Astro turf ing of these protests to get back to work, jump and then you have Donald Trump going out there and saying, Liberate Virginia Liberate Minnesota. I don't know how many of these tweets that he made, but on the Virginia when he said Savior, Great Second Amendment, it's under siege. It's like he's basically trying to get the gun people to come back out again after they lost and get people twist it up. I mean, he's like he's essentially act, trying to activate his base on behalf of Big Line. And it's been met with, even though the administration and packs and whatever else are throwing a lot of money at this, it's resulted in, like a few dozen people showing up and then the same old like broken record of, you know, Tea Party, sort of Allah 2020. And it's just pathetic. It's pretty amazing. It's like, Where's this huge groundswell of support? I mean, maybe maybe the mob, maybe Maga. At this point, James is just Twitter bots and cap boys. Maybe that's all the Yes, well, I mean, if you listen to their their premiere podcasts so highly respected, which I think should be renamed barely recognized. If you look at the viewer numbers just isn't popular right. The Maga 2020 is going nowhere. And aside from the people that that go because a lot of these people in this trump thing, they like to go to these rallies and events and protests because it's an opportunity for them to stand around and talk to other people with pocket constitutions and yell and scream and fight racism and and, you know, think they've really done their bit and They're real American patriots and, ah, it's just a social cause. And these are all old people. You look at the people at these things, and it's almost entirely old people who are holdovers. And this is just, you know, the people with nothing else to do. Snow snack, No Step E. It's just all the all that stuff you, the Gadsden flags and you know, the people that you're not going to take my freedom since secure. Yeah, and a lot of plate plate carriers and Oakleys and chinstrap beards. And, yes, tactical tactical guy. Yeah, but see, that's that's the thing. Is is Trump is saying, Save your second Amendment. It's like, Where the fuck were you, Donald? What were you what? Why are you putting this on somebody else to save the Great Second Amendment in Virginia? You didn't do anything, Not a thing right? Where and where was the activation? And where is the incitement? Let's be honest with this is this is an incitement to action and you know when he's saying talking about liberating Virginia, the Second Amendment being under siege, and I think you could get a pretty good idea of what he's implying here. Where was this energy and passion when the country was being flooded by illegal aliens when the courts were holding up the border wall when you know you weren't able to to do anything meaningful and immigration, you know, you go on and on down the list. And if there are still people that are believing in trump and having a good intent, where was this energy? There You look at what really motivates him. What really gets him incensed. And it's the state of big line getting you to go back out to work and sacrifice yourself on the altar of the Dow Jones industrial average. Yeah, like Eos he went and did this with the bikers to remember how he, like, used the biker, my my biker buddies, my supporters who were bikers. You don't want to mess with them like the implication is like they but he's gonna have anybody's back. Like if these people on the steps of the Capitol of any one of these people got arrested except stepping in to help you. You're just cannon fodder. Everybody, everyone, single One of these people is just cannon fodder. And if those people get sick from interacting with each other. If they're little kids that they're dragging out of the house and dragging to these events toe to look cool and whatever, if they end up getting sick and dying from this, there's Donald Trump is gonna pretend like they did this on their own and he had nothing to do with it. And in just downplay the whole thing and it's no, he doesn't give a fuck if any of these people die. He doesn't give a fuck up thing and thrown in jail. And you know, all these Margus are just gonna have to tow learn the same old lesson. And I guess it it feels a little bit good to be in good company because it would be one thing if Margo's and Cat boys and everybody else that are still in the Trump train, I would say like, Oh, well, Donald Trump abandoned people in Charlottesville because that was bad optics. But he's got everybody else's back. No, we fucking doesn't. He's got nobody's back. He doesn't give a fuck about anybody except for people who have a fucking star of David festooned on their forehead. And that's it. That's all he gives a book about. That's it. People in small, this small hat club. And, you know, he even let Michael Cohen rot in jail for a while to, but probably cause he knows, you know, it's not that. Don't worry, though. The Department of Corrections let him out this week. Yeah, he's free. He's free. Yeah, Paul Manafort, Not so much, but Paul Manafort, Charlie Black. And that whole crowd, that's all those aero Shabbos spin anyway, More on the proof of this being Astro turf as though you needed it. But, um, these groups are popping up across the United States. They're showing up on Facebook. Um, they've garnered only a handful of supporters. Others have built a few 100 followers. There is the Pennsylvanians against excessive quarantine. Uh, and then there's also the Minnesotans against excessive quarantine. Like both groups have identical descriptions and names, and one of them, Pennsylvania has got 48,000 members. Minnesotans has got 17,000. Wow, just groundswell of support. Facebook support, That is, um then you have Operation Gridlock Tennessee in Operation Gridlock, Los Angeles. And if you look at the of the the about's on these groups on Facebook. Um, it's the same Cove in 19 is a very real virus. This has been an excellent reminder for everyone to practice hygiene, but we all need to get back to work. It's like they all say the same thing. It's the same thing. Text verbatim everywhere you go. So, yeah, this is all this is all fake and gay and people are just falling for it. I mean, if you're go outside and protest, have a good time. It's just like nobody has your back. And you probably like unlike previous protests with people go outside, nobody has your back like this time like there's a non 0% that you could get a get really sick and die too, by the way, yeah, yeah, and actually, when you look at the numbers on people who want to keep the country or keep keep locked down in place versus people that want to send everybody back to work. We went through these numbers last week. The get back to work trump crowd is 25% of the country and growing smaller by the day, and it's sort of funny. People will say, Well, Trump will stick up for these people, but he wants to cut for people in Charlottesville. And no, we won't. And the the ironic thing is like removal of Confederate statues was actually less popular than sending everybody back to work, right? So yeah, yeah, exactly. Yeah. And I mean, this is this is continued in Idaho. Um, in Idaho, it's being funded by the Idaho Freedom Foundation, which is a Coke Brothers operation. So of course, they want people t get back to work there. Um, also in Idaho, a pastor and one time Senate candidate. This is a GOP guy, Diego Rodriguez from Idaho. Ah, he launched a website at Easter in defiance. Sorry. He launched the website at an Easter service held in defiance the governor's orders on Easter Sunday, which also addressed, but which was also addressed by Ayman Bundy. Everybody remember Ayman Bundy, leader of the militia operation, Um, and so on and so forth and like, those guys have sort of been given a pass by the government like they got off the hook and what was predicted. What we predict that these guys would start becoming just mouthpieces for the regime. And, you know, here he is Bundy out there in Emmett, Idaho, where he now lives, Um, repeatedly Ah, you know, violating Idaho orders, he writes on Facebook. We all have a duty to defend what is right and to make sure that what God has given man does not take away, especially that great gift of agency and, yes, freedom. Let Farida Marie ing. It's just like Jesus Christ, Ood. I just can't take it. This is happening in Washington State as well. Um, Tyler Miller, who's a Republican State Committee man, organized a protest at the state capital on Saturday. So it's all like glow in the dark Jews and people funded by Betsy to boss in the Koch Brothers. So, yeah, like that's what this is all about. Yeah, and people stuck in like the 19 like, stuck in the 17 hundreds. Really, That just, like have this reactionary government bad me fight tyranny, me patriot And I think that they're like, really like striking a blow to Teoh. Who knows what right? They they fancy themselves as the American revolutionaries, which hey, probably not a bad comparison, actually, because who is that? What we're finding out? I mean, basically what we know It's like, Yeah, these guys actually do have a lot in common with the Founding Fathers, except the Founding Fathers would use these people as cannon fodder to. And they did actual cannon fodder. They did. So yeah, it's it's pretty hilarious that this is all happening in this way, and nobody. Nobody has thes people's backs. And but But see, here's the thing is these people will stand up for their freedoms in whatever on something like this, something minuscule that is safe. And, uh, you know the defense will. They'll die for the big Jewish line on the CNBC screen. But when it comes to tranny showing up with their local library, they sleep when it comes to Mexican, showing up in their town and opening up bodegas in their downtown area like Worthington, Minnesota. They sleep. These people just, you know, they're not standing up for anything they've laid down, and the boomers have laid down for decades to Jewish tyranny and will never stand up in the face of that. And so, yeah, that's right. And and if they did, the United States government can has and will commit acts of human rights violations that the world has never seen. Not even China would make China blush. The things that the United States government would do if these people actually stood up and took a stand against Jewish tyranny. But they won't, right, They won't. Right? If this was actually a cause of concern for the federal government, if they were afraid of the guys showing up in rolling coal and, you know, wearing the camouflage, then rolls would not be, Yeah, this would not be with the with the what I love is like the two stacks coming out of the back with flags attached to both of them. That's great. But ah, they would they would be. They would not be allowing this right. They would not be allowing this to take place in in capital cities across the country. They would not be allowing it to to grow to 70,000 people in Facebook, Which is how you know that it is part of an organized operation. And it is not a grassroots movement and organized homosexual operation. In other words, a gap, which is what this is. So, uh, Dr Phil goes just the flu, bro. Um, he was on Laura Ingram. just to show you like the full, like a just to complete the whole picture you have all like we talked about in the mid week. You have all these white actors out there pushing the five G stuff, and then you have white, beloved television characters like Dr Phil. Um, maybe you should call him Mr Phil because Mr Phil has zero. He's licensed to practice in zero states. He's a psychologist, is not a medical doctor by any stretch of the imagination, and he sounds like some of them like his arguments sound like some of the most drug arguments that you're still hearing today. And that's because they want people to repeat what Dr Phil says because they want to sound smart. Here's Dr Phil Lauren Graham. This is hilarious people 250 people a year die from poverty, and the poverty line is getting such that more and more people are gonna fall below that because the economy is crashing around us and they're doing that because people are dying from the Corona virus. I get that. But look, the fact of the matter is, we have people dying. 45,000 people, a year die from automobile accidents. 480,000 from cigarettes three and 60,000 year from swimming pools. But we don't shut the country down for that. But yet we're doing it for this. And the fallout is going to last for years because people's lives are being destroyed and, yeah, the fall. It's gonna last for years, Dr Phil, because the economy is Jewish, greedy Jewish economy. And I love this. Take that he does. It's the take that everybody just the flu breauxs have sort of pivoted to. It's a new cope, Which is that Here, let me, you know, trot out all these statistics. Let me add them together for you. And at least it's not this man, and it's just it just say OK, so you're okay with 60,000 people dying by the end of May, if we're lucky, maybe it's going to be more than that, um, 60,000 people dying on toe over and above all of these other things that are avoidable. If you're gonna come at me with all these statistics, like how many swimming pool deaths are because a black person got in the pool, right, like I mean, apparently 360,000 year, which seems astounding, if that's actually the case. But what are you saying there that ah, 200? I don't know what he was saying or what he meant to 100 within deep poverty. Night of poverty? Yeah. All right. Yeah. So people are dying because of poverty and because of changing economic circumstances and because their futures have been stolen from them in this country, that's absolutely true. But that's been going on Phil for decades. It is not a new phenomenon. And Mrs Start in January, Mr Mr Phil was not around talking about the heroin epidemic. Mr. Phil was not talking about the death happening in the middle in the middle of the country. Mr. Phil has been totally silent on all of those things until big line was a problem. And then they roll him out under Laura Ingram, right? Yeah, it's bad. How many episodes of Mr Fills ah, TV show have been dedicated to investigating who was pushed the opiates on these people or cause he'll talk about people who are addicted to drugs right with. Yet he never talks about where these drugs came from. why this white blizzard of pills swallowed up the American Heartland, never talking about that. So if you're concerned about people dying of poverty and dying deaths of despair Philip, then look at the cause. Look at why this is happening. Don't, uh, don't use this as an excuse to send more people to their deaths, But I just want a call us out because I see people doing this regularly, and it's a coat. But this idea that you're gonna look at any other just first perspective. Dude, here's other people who have died of heart disease and cancer and eso what's the big deal like, man, it's like, OK, but you're OK with the additional deaths just so that we're clear of its 200,000 300,000. You're okay with that? Half the people that died in the Civil War. You're okay with something that was entirely preventable. And in fact, a lot of these deaths that he's citing 360,000 swimming people 33 60,000 people have not died in swimming pools like maybe maybe lifetime. That's happened, But it's not. No, that's ridiculous. And so yeah, but just to make the comparison like just for a perspective, man. It's like how about we just minimize these deaths as much as possible anyway? I mean, they want to minimize the number of people that have died in car accidents. They want to minimize the number of people who die in swimming pool deaths because, I mean, the insurance companies don't want to make payouts for these things in the first place. But no, they just want to keep going and Kony's. But we don't have to shut the country down yet, you dio. It would've been a lot worse, so I'd love to see where these people were then. But it goes from bad to worse. James, you have, doctor, You have Mr Phil doing just the flu, bro. And look at these other deaths just for perspective. But then Tucker, who has just had he just keeps swinging, just keeps missing, just keeps way. I mean, I know he's doing what his bosses want, but, um, he's doing sort of this more tries to do the what about our freedoms in a little bit more of an intelligent way. But I never thought that the Tucker would try to spring anti Semitism on on this governor and play gotcha with Jews. But he did. It did. Let's see if this is gonna work or if my audio is gonna be fucked up. No, it's gonna work. Here we go. So you made that decision. And as I noted before 15 congregants at the synagogue in New Jersey were arrested and charged for being in a synagogue together. Whoa! Now the bigger states, as you well know, protects Americans right, enshrines their right to practice their religion as they see fit and to congregate together to assemble peacefully. By what authority did you nullify the Bill of Rights in issuing this order? How do you have the power we were that that's above my pay grade. Tucker's. I wasn't I wasn't thinking of the Bill of Rights. When we did this, we went to all. First of all, we looked at the date like science, and it says, Stay away from phoned. That's the best thing we could do to break the back of the curve of this virus that leads to lower hospitalizations. And ultimately, I'm not contested that, though I think it's I do. Do you think there's a debate. This is a rolling, rolling conversation because we're learning new things every day and nothing is settled at this point. But I do want since you are, since you are elected official, a leader in the government in executive. How do you have the authority to order something that's so clearly contravenes the Bill of Rights of the United States, the U. S. Constitution? Where do you get the authority to do that? Where are you on all the contravening of the US Constitution that's taken place at Charlottesville Online, People who have been, ah, censored in silence time. He has sort of said things from time to time in support of those things. But he is like, How does he have the authority to shut down the government? Because it's a health? It's a nationwide health crisis, Tucker. That's why eso is as creative as you want to be in trying to, like, play gotcha with one of the more densely populated states in the country. Bill Murphy is there. Phil Murphy, another Phil, this Charlie Murphy Charlie, Chuck Murphy is the governor of New Jersey. Um, he's like Tucker has to be like, you know, how dare you nullify the Bill of Rights, you even you have been violated the rights of Jews. What do you have to say to that, Phil? Anything? It's like, Yeah, we weren't thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this because the health emergency. But I've heard boomers making this argument where it's like you can't violate the Constitution. It's like once again, do you ever have that comment? Is that thought ever cross your mind unless somebody else puts it there for you when it's safe to make that argument? But you won't make that argument about anything else. Not gay marriage, not abortion, not trannies and libraries, not people out there saying the exercising their First Amendment right to stand up for statues that have been around for 100 50 years now, he said. And actually, actually, the argument about regarding the Bill of Rights doesn't even pertain to a state governor. Because this is of course not. If it doesn't apply to the states right that's applying to the federal government, you could make a better argument that your speech online on nominally private platforms, which is really the public square of the modern era that is more protected by the First Amendment than the right of some Jews to gather in a synagogue. If the state governor declares a state of emergency, right states have derived these powers elsewhere from outside the Constitution, as is their right to do so. We don't have to do the whole 10th Amendment and federalism bit. But you understand that these arguments are being given to people to use because it fits aid narrative. It fits a an agenda, and it fits what the system wants you to think, which is why you're being directed into thinking about the First Amendment in these freedoms. But you're not directed to think that way when it comes to private companies. What does Conservatism Inc tell you about free speech online? I should say they tell you, in that case that the Constitution doesn't apply because the Constitution doesn't bind thes thes private companies and you know it's It's a federal legal document, not a not a one that regulates private business. So the entire thing is, is tactical constitutionalism that is being given to you when it suits the elites when it suits what they want. I think that's an episode title. We rarely come up with them on the fly, but tactical constitutionalism is gonna be, I think, the episode title, even though we're going to spend a lot of time talking about China and Jews. Spoiler alert. But speaking of China, speak of China, There's a lot of Chinese saber rattling going on are actually what I should say is M net saber rattling To go after China, they have to pay. Right? James, we have to. We have to blame China. We have to punish China for what they've done, right? Yeah, that's right. Global it. Folks, if you're a serious guy with good, I'm not a fringe wig Net. If if you're something for Look, folks, folks. Sim ping for China. We're not doing that. Globalism has to die with this virus, right? Uh, which, of course, you know where the cat boys going to come from? If not for me from Asia? That's Ah, supply chain question that I have to be answered, but yeah, so you have the who's who of conservatism of neo conservatism. You have the who's who? Everybody from those on the purchase of Fox News to the coat tail Riders and window lickers begging to be let in the neoconservatism. They're all getting in on this. We must punish China Act. You have Ah Vidor's paleo con populist hero, Josh Holly, calling for an international investigation to China's Corona virus. Cover up. We had a Tucker. Of course we had Lou Dobbs. This is Ah, this is a new one. Jazz blue dubs the U. S. Should take China toe war over Corona virus. What was done was an active biological warfare. Well, this is one of Donald Trump's phone friends, like right? He's always in the White House. Residents talking on the phone with Lou Dobbs and Lou Dobbs started to go negative on Trump for a little while on the immigration stuff that he wasn't keeping his promises. But yeah, I mean, Donald Trump must have worked something out. Where Dobbs has got a contract through, I don't know 2024 or until keels over one or the other. It's just like I don't know. Maybe he got him free cheeseburgers to loot dubs, Um, but yeah, it's it's it's kind of amazing. Yeah, it's like how the he starts to question trump seriousness on immigration and then it's like, just flips the other direction. It's like we need to go to war with China. It's like, Wow, Okay, bro. But he's not the only one, is he? I don't even know who know who is Nick Adams in USA. Who is this person? Somebody some s and blue check conservative. Hey says that if the Corona virus originated in Wuhan Lab and China covered it up, they deserve immense retaliation. All caps. This would be the most costly cover up in world history, and it's not even close. China lie that all caps China lied and people are dying. Rt If you believe China should pay and big all caps esque scalding take on Fuentes, you have to read. You have to read in the voice, though it's not appropriate yet. And knicker gang. If it's confirmed that Corona virus originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese government covered it up, bribed W H. O and continued to allow outbound international flights from China for months, how would not constitute an act of war? Obviously, a direct shape. I can't obviously direct shooting war with China is not in the cards, but there must be significant retaliation. When this is over, This cannot go unanswered. They have to pay for what they did to our country. Globalism has to die with this virus. You have several people. You know it's gonna die with this virus, Nick your brand of shitty conservatism. And everybody's gonna remember that you double down on Donald and started going down. But everybody, let's take a who cares? It's like who's left at this point, it's just like it's just like Umaga boomers and like, weird 16 year olds at this point. But yeah, yeah, check those. Check those. Ah, check those reply threads and yeah, not looking good. But But that's the thing Is is. And with Nick, I mean, remember back to the killing of Sulamani. He was one of the few people that took the position that this doesn't really matter and it's cool to see the US throwing their weight around internationally and and so and even that was ah was sort of a stretch at that point. But with this China op, which is what this is, of course, you're seeing some of these Maga people that were Maga Twitter personalities and and we're I guess in the nascent all right, in 2015 2016 coming out and and saying that Ah, that to To fight China for the U. S. To fight China. This is a nationalist position, and the U. S should use this as an opportunity to go after China and secure its global hegemony. And that would be a nationalist position if they were to do that. And you know, the question you have to ask them is, what do you gain from that? But if this is a nationalist position, who is benefiting? Are you benefitting? Are we benefiting our American workers Benefiting from that? Yeah, I don't think so. And more. I don't think anybody on whose behalf are you doing this right? Who are you doing this? Four. Because I'm even if something might be good for me in a different world, where you know China is is geopolitical enemy, and it's between us and them, and it's obviously we're gonna not gonna bow down to them. But in a world where this benefits Jews and it's it's really a kosher dialectic, which we're going to spend the entirety of the second half looking into in explaining why this is gay. And by the end of this, by the end of this episode, you'll know exactly where you need to stand on this, and it's it's and it's a position that you can feel good about. That resolves a lot of of these questions about where where to go. But it's certainly not the direction that he's going be. The best thing would be if you wanted to counter globalism would be raised tariffs. Instead, the rhetoric is to do something to punish them, and it's sort of vaguely warlike. And so why do I get the feeling that instead of punishing China by raising tariffs, were trying to get conned into owning globalists by forcing China open up its markets? Big thing Emoji. Wonder why that is, and we'll talk about that. You'll never guess. But Larry Fink plays a huge role in all of that. And so these guys aren't the only ones there. The fellow travelers, right? There's Breitbart's very just Steve Masher. Um, wants to wave China's sovereign immunity and seize its assets. This is your fellow travelers are guys, I mean, but one, right? I mean, this guy, this is this would be good for us hegemony, right? This is a nationalist. This is an American nationalist position that Stephen very Jewish Stephen Mosher has where he advocates for moving forward on the International Criminal Court, file formal charges against China, wave China's sovereign immunity in the US and take away the assets of the Chinese government and Chinese companies that operate in the United States, and open up the international courts to allow private citizens to sue the Chinese government on behalf of losses suffered by this. So this is part of the redirect right, where if you're a small business owner that has had to shut down your business and you lose your business, perhaps. Oh, don't worry. Going well, just delighted. Suit Chyna. And, uh, of course this will never happen, right. But ah ah, and he's mo sure has a much more like this is his passion project, right? This is what his cause has been for decades. He, um, looks at this as as he says, an opportunity to end totalitarian ism in China, he says, quote, I think we moving forward six or seven ought to be moving forward on six or seven fronts and put as much pressure on the Chinese Communist Party and its leaders at at this point in time as possible. These regimes appear almost invincible from the outside, like I'm going to like diamonds very, very hard. But a proper blow from a hammer struck just the right angle can shatter a diamond into 1000 pieces. So yeah, American nationalism, right? Shabby change in China shatter shattering number two diamond into 1000 pieces. Um, yeah. And of course, this is This is always the same thing, right? Like that's always pushing for for this, and we'll explore why we'll tell you why why they're doing this and what? Yeah, yeah. And with the other narrative he's seeding is that China needs to be crushed because they're like Nazi Germany, basically Kristallnacht every day in China, he says. He was asked by Breitbart's why China failed to take in any refugees from the Third World. Moshe explained that quote. China governs an ethnically based empire, and the CCP self consciously and openly touts the racial superiority of their race over all others. Similar to Germany's Third Reich, the leadership of checking the Chinese Communist Party is almost entirely Han Chinese, which is of course very disturbing for anyone who lived through the last century, where a century where we had a world war fought against people whose government claimed they were racially superior. It was the Nazi doctrine of superiority that led their effort to invade and conquer and blah blah, blah. Yeah, um, anti racist American nationalism, saber rattling regime change in China. Imagine, like Breitbart, 2020. It's like How come you didn't let in those refugees? China. Why didn't you let in more refugees? Wow. I mean, would they would you have ever imagined them doing this in 2016? Never. But they're on the other side. It's so it's so amazing how this Ah, how this pivots. So all of this China saber rattling back to work chump has caused Trump, Trump and trumpism actually to take quite a big hit. Trump thinks it's because big line go down and it's not and he's miscalculating. That's one of the reasons he's so desperate to get back to work Trump, because he knows that he's politically in a not so great space. But what people are really frustrated with is his continued mishandling of the crisis most Americans. This, according to Pew research, which is typically leans pretty right. Historically, they say, 73% say that in thinking about the problems of the country is facing from the Corona virus outbreak, the worst is still yet to come. I mean, seems to be confirmed by the data. Ah, With With the Trump administration and many state governors actively considering ways to revive the stalled US economy, the public strikes a decidedly cautious note on easing limits on public activity. About twice as many Americans say that their greater concern is that state governments will lift restrictions on public activity to quickly 66% rather than not quickly enough, 32%. Trump's handling of the kroner virus outbreak, especially his response to initial reports of Corona virus case Corona virus cases overseas, is widely criticized. 2\/3 of Americans 65% this cuts across both party lines say that Trump was too slow to take major steps to address the threat when cases of the disease were first reported in other countries. Fewer than half of Americans say that Trump portrays the Corona virus situation about as it really is, only 39% say his public comments on the virus outbreak. Ah, or how it really is. 52% say that he is making the situation seem better than it really is on Lee. 8% say that he's making it seem worse than it really is. So it's like, Yeah, dude, uh, you're all of this in So he is actually. So I'm saying, like what Wall Street saying, like guy like keep it shut down. It's like, Don't interrupt me. He's not an enemy, though, right? Like I would say otherwise, it's They don't let your enemy don't interrupt your enemy while he's making a mistake. But, I mean, they're they're better off just standing clear of the blast radius, man. And, uh and, ah, just letting him implode. And then they can get puppet. Biden and ah probably get a lot more of what they want. In fact, they would get a lot more of what they want out of Biden. Um, you know, again, Trump is giving slo mo whatever the fuck he wants. But Trump is unpredictable. With puppet Biden, they could just call them up and not have to deal with any of the other bullshit. But his approval rating has also tanked. When it was up at 49% when the Dow was at 30,000 and now it is slid to 43%. Um, and so yeah, the decline comes this about 65%. We just said the 65% of Americans say he was too slow, um, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. What was good news? Those trash is above average average since taking office is 40%. Get as soon as the approval is stepped into the forties. Um, the disapproval has has climbed, um, rapidly. And so it's not just pure research, it's not just gallop. It's also real clear politics. Pull data. The last 11 national polls have shown Trump's disapproval rating outstripping his approval number. His average approval rating in these polls is 46% while his disapproval is 51%. And ah, yeah, I mean, it's just it's just bad. I mean, and he's and he wants to open things back up in risk risk, there being a second spike in these numbers, actually getting even worse and the economy breaking back down even further. I mean, as there are five and six more 1,000,000 jobs lost each and every week. I mean, that can only That can always get worse, Donald. But now, I mean, can you imagine James that the election is in Ah, 200 days. I mean, just hard. Hard to even wrap your head around. Yeah. No, that's Ah, pretty crazy, huh? Yeah. Yeah. And the thing with the if they had their their ideal shit puppet biden Ah, in office, then they wouldn't have to deal with with Trump's, Like these inclinations he has and, you know, wild ideas. He gets like he could just listen to to the Wall Street executives and just be told what to dio. Essentially right. And that's that meeting that trump out of the phone call would go very differently if it were biting in office. And ah, and yet, like, the response would not have to be wrangled as it is. A zit is with Trump, and they would make you one would think they would be able to make the better long term decisions for big line, which, which Trump is now, is now failing to dio Well, um yeah, the other cope that they're doing is is with Jeff Sessions. You have Ah, you have immigration moratorium. Is this hashtag that has taken off? And it's not what you think. Jeff Sessions has come out and made the foundational element of his Senate campaign in immigration moratorium, but with a big fat but only until the U. S unemployment rate reaches pre Corona virus pandemic levels. And then, I guess, according to Jeff Sessions, just turned right back on. See if I am not swine Nats out there promoting Jeff Sessions. Hashtag immigration moratorium. He's a real America first candidate. It's like he's America first until big line goes up. And then it's back to, Ah, Big Brown go up to right. I mean, that's what that's what he's pushing. And it's kind of funny, because sessions we've criticized him for not actually going after, Um, he's not actually going after Trump in any meaningful way. He's trying to play this game like, Oh, I'm still supporting the president's agenda, and this is how I'm going to get elected. And also immigration moratorium, which is just a thing to like boost his campaign. But apparently the Trump campaign sent Sessions a letter they called Sessions delusional for tying himself to Trump. And I mean for AM nets and wine nets and people still on the Trump train. I mean, this is the guy that your rallying around right now for an immigration moratorium and you're just sitting there saying, Ah, that that you think this is his guy. Meanwhile, Trump's campaign is demanding sessions stop attaching himself to the president in his effort to win back his old Senate seat. Apparently, there was a letter sent to the Sessions campaign. Ah, they called Sessions claim that he is the president's top supporter. Delusional quote. The Trump campaign has learned that your U. S Senate campaign is circulating mailers like the one I have enclosed in which you were misleadingly promoting your connections to spend support of President Trump. Michael Glassner, Trump's campaign chief operating officer. Of course, Jared Kushner would hire someone named Michael Glassner to run the campaign. Um, but Mr Sessions, who was the first attorney general to support Trump, has repeatedly invoked Trump the enclosed letter and donor form. In fact, mentioned President Trump by name 22 times. The letter even makes the delusional assertion that you are Mr President, Mr president struck Number one supporter. We only assume your campaign is doing this. To confuse President Trump's loyal supporters in Alabama into believing the president supports your candidacy in the upcoming primary runoff election, nothing could be further from the truth. The letter goes on to make clear that Mr Trump, in his campaign, unambiguously endorsed Tommy Tuberville and concludes Mr Trump and his campaign do not support your efforts to return to the U. S. Senate. Meanwhile, AM Nets are like Ma got 2020. Also immigration Moratorium. It's like guys, how do you square that circle? That's exactly what you took the words right out of my mouth. I was going to say, How do you square the circle of having your loyalty be your one and only loyalty being to Donald Trump while also thinking this is like an epic good optics ruse that Jeff Sessions is going to do to to get elected and then and then sneak this policy in and end immigration in America? It doesn't make sense, and we would be talking about this differently if this had been Sessions platform from Day one. If he had run a campaign and he had called out Trump for his failings on immigration that this would be a totally different the different candidacy Red and, um, that would be actually productive because it looks like sessions is actually going to lose here. So what? He's going to go out with a whimper, begging like you know, he'll be joining the cat boys looking the windows of conservatism asking to be allowed in asking, Please, Trump noticed me it. Ah, yeah, it Zen entirely unproductive. But it would have meant something if he had run an anti Trump candidacy or run, uh, calling out Trump for his failings and for his absolute abandonment of immigration as an issue that would be productive. Something would be it would be useful, this totally useless, totally useless. And one other element before we go to break of of Trump's people riding on Trump's coattails going down in flames. Trump's approval rating and his Jewish economy aren't the only things going down in flames right now. Apparently, Lindsey Graham, Lindsey Graham has outraged has been out. Raised by black Democratic Senate candidate Jaime Harrison in South Carolina's record setting Senate race, his challenger out raised the incumbent Republican for the first time in the race over the initial three months of 2020 setting a South Carolina campaign fundraising record. In the process, Harrison brought in seven point 3,000,002 grams, 5.6 million, according to two releases from the campaigns Wednesday night. So grand might lose the Senate seat. And on top of that, what its grand do 24 hours later? Well, he declassified a bunch of FBI informant transcripts Carter Page and Fiza Records. This was like breaking news for all the people who still give a shit about this. I just I mean, there's not much to really say here, other than like a Black is out fundraising. Lindsey Graham And the whole thing is going up in smoke trumpism conservatism. All of this is going up in smoke and you know, cat boys and everybody else are along for the ride. It's like we remember guys, everybody's watching in your all making fools of yourselves. And this is a sinking ship. So right, right, this is Ah, this is swimming. I mean, yeah, it's clear that this is going down in flames, but ah, this is basically like hitching yourself, you know, firmly of fixing yourself to the ship as it's going under tying off that. Not saying this is gonna be great. Yeah, yeah, it's a big mess, but ah, well, they're clean to China in there, like sanctioned Jewish Chinese racism. Now, is this new cope that they're doing well, we're gonna put holes in all of that. You're gonna poke holes in that big time in part two. So that further do will be right back on.

This is our to, of course, of ftn three or five, but, ah, special topic that has been talked about. We've talked about it in this program, obviously and, um, sort of not in this holistic way that we're going to hear. What we did is we researched Jews in China, and this is of course, very important topic. And it relates to I mean in understanding of this issue is essential to understanding the history of China hit China and its role in the 21st century and current relations U. S. China relations. US Israel relations Today it's very important undercovered we believe, and so we hope in this. Ah, this hour to give you. Ah, well, I say our going to be more than an hour, but ah, this is some some new research here that I think is going to be very enlightening. And, of course, the context for all of us. Now the current context is the incitement of anger and rage from Conservatism Inc Ports, China. And this is, of course, an effort to get you angry at China. Shift the blame for the inadequate Corona virus response away from the U. S. And moreover, away from this new liberal finance capital driven system that completely failed. You people have, ah need to feel like this is being done to them escape goat or isolate one entity as being responsible for this. This was done to you and you are feeling suffering that is being that is more than you are. Then you should be feeling because of inaction and because of a botched response. But it was done to you by this system that refused to act on the information that it had when it would have mattered to protect you. Now, regardless of Corona virus origins, we know that it arose out of China. Chinese authorities alerted the World Health Organization organization in late December, and it took 33 days before Trump closed in name only the borders to China. Even then, dozens of flights allowed in 45 days to close off travel from Europe and the companies that have been moving this critical manufacturing overseas for decades. This has been going on for a long time with no meaningful recourse from the U. S. So this idea that China has has sprung a trap on us is ah, is absolutely a diversion of your justified anger that you should be feeling towards this system. Now we're gonna do is we're going to look back in history here and we're gonna start. Ah, actually, not in the 19th century, not in the 17th century. Got to go all the way back to understand using China all the way back to the ninth and 10th century. Now, at this time, Ah, this was the advent of global trade, and ninth and 10th century Jewish merchants were some of the leaders in establishing routes of commerce from Spain, from Europe to China by land and sea, and these people, European Jews, they left seaports in France, Italy, Spain and they had three main routes into China. One was through Syria by land, at one was by sea to India and China and another through Eastern Europe. By land and along all of these routes, these Jewish traders established themselves and established a permanent presence there. And so these people became quickly became the monopoly interest in not only Europe's Europe's financial sector, but the glass trade, silk trade, wool trade, the diet trade. And he dominated the import of spices from Asia into Europe. And this was there was, ah, debate in the Jewish community between whether or not this was what they should be doing, whether trading and being merchants was dirty. Some of the tell Mutis Jews, which were essentially the Orthodox use of the time well viewed it as sort of something only fit for gentiles. But then they realized jazz how much money there was to be made. And sure enough, there perspective changed that Quick 1 80 they got themselves involved, and they brought with them new and novel financial innovations, including doing business based on credit and negotiable securities. Instead of gold, they would give you loans to buy your goods from them. What a nice new novel, Innovation and the thing. This is also, by the way, how the ah Plague, which we talked about very early on in the Corona virus saga. How the plague got out of China and spread all of Europe. Do you think it was bands of Chinese that came into Europe? No. Is the juice and all their junk that their ring back and forth? Not not quite junk, actually, In Europe, they wanted a lot of things that that the Orient had. Yeah, it's It's not the only thing. Silk and porcelain. Those weren't the only things moving along those Jewish trade routes. No disease and credit. Ah, credit was was a new innovation that they launched around this time, the 10th century, And the Romans had, you know, the Roman and what became European law. They all have believed that debt was personal and that if you took out a loan from someone else that ah, that creditor could not sell that note of indebtedness. But tell Munich law broke from this tradition. Tom, You Nichola recognized impersonal credit arrangements and held that whoever held that note ah was was due payment, right? So this was the 10th century. Back in the 10th century, they were inventing new ways of swapping securities. And and, uh wow. Sure enough, nothing has changed in in the 1000 over 1000 years. And as an aside, if you listen to the Hamilton Deep Dive, you'll recall that Hamilton found himself at odds with some of the other founding fathers because of his plan to allow war profiteers to keep Revolutionary War vets bonds Ellison on the same spiritually wavelength as these 10th century Jewish merchants now in the Ming and Qing dynasties. Chinga supposed this. But roughly between the 14 hundreds and the early 19 hundreds, China did attempt in various ways to crack down on foreign trade. They heavily restricted sea routes. They restricted coastal settlements. They tried to prevent foreign traders from coming into the country. But these do is these European Jews. They flagrantly violated these orders, and they cross these borders anyways because the European market just needs silk and porcelain. Jazzy. What are we going to do without our silk and porcelain? And in return the credit would be exchanged and silver would be traded and and yes. So this this was the selling of the seeds for what would eventually become international debt finance capitalism back in the ninth and 10th centuries and all, even beginning in the 14 hundreds, is when we have the first historical record documented historical record of Jews establishing themselves as, ah as emissaries in these big, cosmopolitan cities along these key trade routes and setting up these essentially clearinghouses in all these cities. And you can look at the historical record and find the first record of Jewish settlement in China is is disputed. But most people agree it's between 9 16 11 27 China got their first synagogue in 11 63. Now you'll hear if you, if you start looking into Chinese Jews, will hear a lot about these people called the Kaifeng Jews. And this is sort of a misdirect because the Kaifeng Jews essentially became like the We was Keynes. That we was the real black is relates, right, These people, that's sort of what they became. They existed as a as a minor sect that by the 17 hundreds had inter married with Han Chinese and in their community dissolved, and Israel does not recognize these people as legitimate juice. Ha'aretz actually talked to a guy named Jin, whose uncle, slo Mo jin, went to the Israeli Embassy in Beijing. Teoh request to immigrate to Israel, and embassy officials sort of laughed him off. They didn't want anything to hear about it, so he eventually had to come into Israel through three European third country. A safe third country is how we got into Israel. But yes, so the Jewish hooks have been in China since for over 1000 years, actually, and we see this becomes very important as we move into the ah into the 18th and 19th centuries. But what's really important here is not the Kaifeng Jews. That's sort of Ah, it's a red herring. What's really important to look at is a center of Jewish power in Asia. Asia is Shanghai, and the Ah, the British British East India Company were involved in this as well. Um, and Shanghai is regarded today as one of the greatest Jewish cities ever constructed. If you read the Jewish press and you might not know that, but ah yes, Shanghai became a center of Jewish power. The British East India Company began smuggling opium into China in the 17 seventies, and by 17 90 they had increased their opium exports to 339 tons per year. But you hear the name British East India company, and you think it's those darn Anglos again? Not the case is. It's just not the not if you look at the leadership who made up the British East India company. Now that is something that has been trotted out as something that the British were doing to the Chinese. It's really it's really just a lie, though. Um, British East India Company was financed by Joseph Salvador, actually, who is a Portuguese sip Arctic Jew. He was also the director of the company in the 17 sixties. Really, when this started going full force, Um and then, of course, what happens 10 years later, it's like, Oh, yeah, they start flooding China with opium, of course. So Salvador actually belong to the Portuguese sip Arctic Jewish synagogue in London. He was the leader in the affairs of this Portuguese speaking community in London. There's a prominent businessman and financier, and in fact, he lobbied for the 17 53 ju bill to extend full citizenship in civil rights to Juice UM 17 59. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society. When King George the third ascended the throne of England, Salvador headed the seven man delegation that congratulated him on behalf of England's Jewish community. And then Salvador, of course, was also a pro. Hannah very in free Mason. This is where a lot of this free Mason stuff, uh, probably has some roots in the truth, Um, with a lot of the people who are involved in it. Maybe not today. It's a thing that people sort of cling to, And I think it's a valid criticism of the people who cling to the Free Masons as the scapegoat instead of the people who are members of it. Most frequently. At this time, Salvador was also ah, great patron, the Jewish community. Along with the DaCosta family, he sponsored transportation for 42 very poor Jews. Vam Sure, they're so poor to Georgia. And 17 33. And of course, given what we know about the American South, specially the prominence of Jewish communities in places like Savannah and Charleston, Um, this is the focus of the slave trade. This is where they built a lot of the control in the South, and they migrated from Savannah to Charleston after the Spanish attack. Georgia. Um, and so this became a popular place. Charleston, South Carolina. We're going to hear more about it a little bit later. But from the 17 thirties, on where Charleston actually became the preferred destination for support of Jews in the South and so Salvadoran DaCosta, they brought, they bought hundreds of thousands of acres in the 96 district in South Carolina in the 17 thirties. Huge landowners, huge slaveholders. Joseph's nephew actually was Francis Salvador, who came to South Carolina and 17 73 who bought 7000 acres in this district and then joined up with the American Revolution. The caught fighting for the Patriot cause, 17 74. He was elected to the first provincial convert Congress. He was the first Jew to be elected to public office in the 13 colonies, and in August of 17 76 he was killed in battle in South Carolina. So is the first Jew to be killed in the American Revolutionary War. So I go off in a little bit of a tangent here But this is how the so much of this is is interconnected. And we're going to see why, Um later And of course is you note here the Chinese responded by banning the opium that was being pumped into their country again and again and again. I wonder, James, do you think that they named the Jew or were they naming the Anglo? Really? Nobody we may never know. Yeah, well, yeah, it's ah, they were certainly having a bad time with it. Ah, either way. And they banned at opium because this was not being legally imported. This was being smuggled into the country. They banned it, actually, four times on four separate occasions. 17 29 17 99 18 14 and again in 18 31. But these Jewish traders, who again had been building these trade routes into Asia since the ninth and 10th centuries. They were profited greatly from this. The largely Jewish British East India company was profiting greatly from this, and they went from 339 tons per year of opium in 17 92 3500 tons per year by 18 33 All the while the Chinese air doing our is sort of throwing up their hands. What can we do about it? And eventually they just said, Yeah, we're done with this And they had their military forces raid the warehouses begin blockading English ships, confiscating cargo, and a war followed right. The British declared war on the Chinese. And of course, this is probably the height of British naval power in the 18 hundreds, and China's quickly forced to bend the knee. And as a result, China has to give up Hong Kong, give up the entire territory of Hong Kong in the surrounding islands and agree to five treaty ports. Is reports that would be managed by the British in Canton. Ning Po boost. Wow! German and Shanghai. Now Shanghai's very important. 10 years later, course they fight this again, right? The emperor, a new emperor, takes the throne. He again gets fed up with the Chinese air with the with this importation of opium, and they sees a British smuggling ship and put the crew in slavery. This time, Britain and France come along and blockade Chinese cities and force yet another Chinese surrender the terms. This time around, we're actually even more egregious they demanded cheap Chinese labor both in the colonies and in Britain. This became essentially Chinese slave labor. They demanded the legalization of the opium trade and the opening of all Chinese ports, not just those five all Chinese ports, to British merchants and opium smugglers. But maybe most importantly, prevision of this treaty was to grant foreign merchants the right to travel uninhibited within China, which was one of the concessions the Chinese were forced at gunpoint to make. So when we talk about kicking in markets around the world, this is a prime example of that. And ah yeah, you want to guess what happened jazz in the following years after the markets are kicked in? Well, beginning in the 18 forties and fifties, a network of prominent Sephardic Jewish merchant families, the Condor ease the hard dunes, the as roads than the seems, the Abrahams, the guppies and most importantly, the Sassoon's. The Root of the city, the grubby, the grubby hands. Yeah, groovy And they joined. They became this occupying elite. They became the most powerful families in Shanghai, and they were small, but of course, immensely powerful. They began financing these mansions, financing art exhibitions they built essentially Shanghai's version of Vietnam Vienna's Rings Rossa, which was completed in 1929. You're actually in complete in 1929 was this Sassoon Cathay Hotel that's of these people became the elites of Shanghai, and most of what survives today in Shanghai is artifacts of Jewish Shanghai. And of course, they then led the development of this industrial and not industrial. But the financial district, which is what Shanghai became today. And in the 19 thirties they got more Jews. They received Nazi refugees. Shanghai's existing Jewish community became even more visible, exploding in size to nearly 30,000 strong. Now the Japanese that were occupying Shanghai at the time put them in camps. Hair lived in ghettos which were patrolled. There's a strict curfew. Food was rationed. You needed a pass to enter relieve. And of course, some of these Jewish men Inter married with the Chinese women in Shanghai. So and it's like Mark Zuckerberg mean, Yeah, yeah, exactly. Know it's exactly right. And sure enough, you know, you see the U. S. Military make liberating Shanghai one of their top priorities on the Asian front because of who was there and this this was actually the first riel exposure. Ah, first organized exposure of China to organized jewelry. And this kicked off. What? Ah, this phenomenon of Jew curiosity that many Chinese elites and intellectuals have because they studied these people, right? They they're interested in these people in a way that is not violas, Semitic, nor anti Semitic on. And you'll see this on. We'll get to this in terms of how how the Chinese study the Jews. But you have people like these Chinese nationalists sun yet Sen saying quote, Jews were wealthy and talented. If we could make a favorable impression on them and obtain their support, it would be a great help to us. You see, uh, interesting optics, good off the A. Yeah, he really hasn't that this is just speaks like a China man who just hasn't had a whole lot of experience with Jews. They're sort of like, Oh, wow, look at this. They sort of have this scientific view of people. It's like you really haven't experienced much of this. All they know is that these merchant people came and made them wealthy. I mean, I guess they blamed the British for the opium don't really know much about them. Very limited information, but sun yet Sen. I mean, it goes beyond that. He, Ah, he admired the Jewish people and Zionism. He also saw parallels. He also saw perilous like parallels in today's nationalism, a modern nationalism, quote unquote nationalism, America first nationalism. He also saw parallels between the persecution of Jews and the domination of China By Western powers, he stated, though their country was destroyed, the Jewish nation has existed to this day in the form of Zionism. It's one of the greatest movements of the present time. All lovers of democracy cannot help but support wholeheartedly and welcome with enthusiasm the movement to restore your wonderful and historic nation, which has contributed so much to the civilization of the world in which rightly deserve an honorable place in the family of nations. Wow! Sounds like sounds like Steve King Sounds like, uh, you know Donald Trump. I mean, this is the Nash Chinese nationalist, right? And this would've been this was radical for the time, right? Yes. This embrace design. Yeah, this is I mean, and that's the thing is it doesn't sound that out of the ordinary when comparative today's politicians and leaders. But at the time, people would be looking at this guy like, What are you talking about? But the important people were looking at him and and wholeheartedly agreeing. And, of course, the his faction there. These Chinese nationalists were U S allies in World War Two. They were, yes. So another wave of 18,000 Jews from Germany, Austria, Poland all came to Shanghai in the late thirties and early forties. There's several waves of these. Shanghai was an open city at that time. Did not have any restrictions on immigration. In some Chinese diplomats such as Ho Fang, Sean issued protective passports and the Japanese diplomat, Shi Yoon Segarra issued transit visas with which refugees could go to Shanghai after a short stay in Japan. So and then in 1943 the Japanese army required these 18,000 Jews to relocate to an area called Hyung Koo today known as the Hongkou District, where they lived in group homes, called Jaime the total number of Jews who entered Shanghai during this period. This is listen to this total number of Jews who entered Shanghai during the pre and current World War two period equalled the total number of Jews who fled to Australia, Canada, India, New Zealand and South Africa combined. So they pretty incredible. So in general, in the period of 18 45 to 1945 more than 40,000 Jews came to China to do business or in search of safe haven. Probably the former, not much of the ladder. Everywhere they go, it's about doing business. Um, but but yeah, it looks like they were on the asset to I mean, this is something you read in indestructible Jews, right? Yeah. There's a book by a guy named Ah Damonte Max Demonte, who was a European born Jew who, you know, just went on to become a top U. S. Intelligence officer. Funny how how that route was open to him in World War Two. And he wrote this book called Indestructible Jews. History of the Jewish People. And it's interesting book. I mean, talk about, like, dense, hubris, dense chutzpah. This guy, like I caution people reading this book from because this guy will tell you that like a Jew, you know, um, claiming credit for just about everything in the world that's ever been done but ah you know. So take it with a grain of salt. But he talks about at the time. And this book was written in the seventies, by the way, So shortly after World War Two. It's interesting to read, because the Holocaust had not become this all informing, ah, piece of narrative that, ah, that shapes the dialectic that weren't to that point yet. But he talks about the Jewish attitude towards the diaspora, Post World War Two. And he writes quote, for the Jews, World War two was a momentous turning point in the first act of world history. We saw the dispersed throughout 1\/3 of the world encompassed by Greco Roman civilization. As the second act progressed, we saw them dispersed into the 2nd 3rd of the World, Europe and the Americas Post World War Two. We see 1\/3 dispersion of the Jews. This time it is into the last third of the world Asia, Australia and Africa. The Jews now have D asper outlets in every continent in strategic positions for acting out the third act of our manifest destiny. And so they really wanted to get there, get their hooks into everywhere they had not yet brought under the yoke at this point, and chiefly among them was Asia. It was Asia. This is a place. This is the final frontier, and you're seeing it play out in real time today. One of the reasons why there is saber rattling going on with China there they've tried to crack that nut. They haven't quite gotten what they wanted, but they've been there all along. The idea that Jews are not existed in China and China's somehow this this pure government that exists just for the sake of the Chinese people and is is wildly nationalist and socialist at the same time and is totally devoid of any sort of Jewish influence is just wrong. It's wrong where you talk about that right now. The Chinese civil war ended in 1949 and the P. R C People's Republic of China emerged on the other side and little known fact. Um, Chairman Mao, his entire inner circle was full of Jews, um, so 1940 90 of this revolution in China and most of these 40,000 Jews and actually almost all Westerners, except for about 100 remained of those 100 these were juice that were right around Mao's inner circle. After World War Two, you had most of the Jews emigrating to Israel. In the West, few of them remained. Three prominent non Chinese lived in China from the establishment of the PRC onward. Sydney Shapiro, Israel Epstein, Ruth Weiss and a 40 actually, and there's some more. But these are the prominent ones. Sidney Rittenberg. We're also going to talk about Dr Jacob Rosenfeld as well. And so this is a Kadre of Jews who became part of Mao's inner circles. They're all dead now and then. Some of them have died in the last 10 years. Some of them died in the late nineties, early yachts, and they lived to be like 98 years old. These fucking people go on forever. But Sydney Shapiro, Ashkenazi Jew born in Brooklyn, became a Chinese lawyer, translator, actor and writer who lived in China from 1947 all the way up until 2014. Fact. He lived in Beijing for over half a century, and he was also a member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Council, essentially like one of the highest advisory boards in the country. He also became a naturalized citizen in the PRC. It's like, Wow, like acting in the interests of the Chinese, right brow like it just like let the Jew like Jews and Chinese. Essentially, he held citizenship in the PRC from 1963 up into the Cultural Revolution and then through the end of his life. And like I said, he was a member of this, this political consultant Consultative Conference, which was a government assembly of the PRC, which provides a forum for input from non Communist political organizations and based on the makeup of this panel, just Jews. But what's interesting is this guy was born in America. He served in the United States Army, and they sent him to ah, the Foreign Language School in San Francisco, toe learn mandarin. And then he developed connections with China during World War Two. I'm sure with other Jews and ah, you know, he he basically just decided to fuck the fuck right off. Aziz. Most rootless cosmopolitans would do, um, and go right to China as soon as the war was over and started helping with their revolution. And ah, he was employed for 50 years by the F. L p, which is the foreign languages press. He was a translator of Chinese works of literature. So this guy was translating literature. Uh, probably sanitizing it is the more, um, probably more accurate statement. But he would actually lash out of the United States for the regular criticisms of human rights. Um, he said Democracy in America, which was won by the public through longtime struggle, started going downhill in the 20th century. It's not because of you, though, right in the States today, the intelligence agencies have got the power to tap citizens phone calls. Inquire what books a person is borrowing from the library. It's like this guy spent too much in China. He's not read in on the plan. Um, but he ah, he was you know, this this power for this guy to do translations pretty significant. I mean, he essentially controls everything coming in and out of China. I'm sure he was enlisted to translate things from English into Chinese as well. And as people know, translators have a powerful role, especially if they have nefarious motivations. As I'm sure Sydney Shapiro totally just totally pure, right, Right. And especially if there is a very limited pool of translators to draw from right and, at the time, Chinese language. Like, you know, you look at schools today in America, and many schools will offer Chinese language programs. At the time, it was very rare. It was extremely where there were only a very small, select few people that were capable of translating Ah, Mandarin and Cantonese into English and back again. And so if you have this guy in this position of power, you're right. He's holding an immense amount of power over both. What, ah, with Western perception of China and the Chinese perception of the West and both of the others. Perspective. Perceptions of Jews, many of Israel. Epstein, who is a journalist who served as the Chinese government's head of international public relations. I mean, it's amazing, like as you hear this history unfold. I mean, you have to understand there weren't other Westerners. It's not like this is just one Jew on a panel of 100 different, Like even Europeans, it's basically just Mao and the Jews, and this is another Ashkenazi Jew, this one. Born in Warsaw, his father had been imprisoned by authorities in czarist Russia for leading a labor uprising. So this guy, totally just ah, not a revolutionary at all. His mother had been exiled to Siberia. Epstein's father was sent by his company to Japan after the outbreak of World War One. When the German army approached Warsaw, his mother and Epstein fled and joined him in Asia with his family experiencing anti Jewish sentiment in several places. Epstein came to China with his parents at the age of two and settled in tenge. In eso, he began to work in journalism, but of course he did. And then he ended up writing for the Peking and Change in times, Uh, and so this guy he's he starts off as a journalist. He worked for the Allied Labor News, Um, published a book called The Unfinished Revolution in China In 1947. His book was enthusiastically reviewed by The New York Times at that point, and in 1951 Communist defector Elizabeth Bentley testified in the U. S. Senate internal security subcommittee, Israel. Epstein had been a member of the Russian secret police for many years in China, So these people are also all spies to, um and we're so I'm sort of getting a little bit ahead of myself here. But Epstein was actually spent quite a bit of time in prison. So these guys were in mouse inner circle very close to Mao and Deng Xiaoping advised the Chinese government how to polish its overseas image. Um, but apparently this guy was thrown in prison for plotting against Zao Enlai. He was imprisoned in 1968. He was subjected to solitary confinement, then released in 1973. And, ah, they apologized to him and his privileges were restored. Just amazing. But one of the reasons why these people keep getting thrown in jail throughout this time, um is they were all spies, thes air. All this is all network of Jews working in China and the whole purpose of them being there. Of course, this, you know it goes without saying, is to make sure that these revolutions that took place in China did not start trending in a direction where they did not like, perhaps like Japan, or perhaps like Germany. They want to make sure the type of communism that Mao is adopting and gets influenced by thes Westerners. Because to Mao, these people are Americans. He knows they're Jews, but he wants to make sure that, you know, you don't just end up going to programs, right? Like trying to keep this try to keep this stuff on track. Um, but his prominence, this suspect Israel Epstein. So his prominence in China was suggested by the annual talks Mao had with him. Dang attended Mr Epstein's retirement reception in 1985. And then on April 17th the Chinese president, Hu Jintao, visited him and presented him with special contributions to China. Um, even during his five years in prison, he remained loyal to the ideals of communism. But of course he did. Israel Epstein was elected as a member of the Standing Committee of the National Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultation Conference in 1983. So these people are elected to Chinese offices. They became citizens. Um, he was honored by Chinese political leaders. Ooh, in lie. Mao Zedong, Deng Xiaoping, Zing Zaman and Hu Jintao. The They had a ceremony for this guy when he died. Um, you also had pull it, pull it, Barrow Standing committee members honoring this guy, he's buried in the bobbo Sean cemetery for revolutionaries. So I haven't. I haven't gotten a chance to watch this. But apparently in 1995 there was a documentary called Round Eyes In the Middle Kingdom. Um, round eyes with tiny little hats is probably the more accurate title. Ah, that might be interesting. Um, Teoh, watch that. But yeah. I mean, these are just two of the people so far, and they're not even the most prominent ones. No, they're not. And I think it's a very important point to make that these people were there to manage and steer this revolution and to manage and steer and direct the Chinese Communist Party in this emergent state that was emerging out of a similar to the Soviet Union. Right? And these these revolutions were not what Marx would have predicted. Going from like a capitalist society and then embracing communism. These were both coming straight out of, like the agrarian era, the Soviet Union and China. And with that, you have a population that has not been inundated with propaganda. If a population that that could be very reactionary. And they were very concerned about about these anti elite sentiments and and, you know, brutality That suit in many cases Ah, from being directed, you know, at Shanghai, at the at the elites that were, ah taking up residence there or and they also viewed the Yeah, they view this as something that could easily get out of hand, and they wanted to to ensure that it did not. And that they did not have to re fight a similar, uh, you know, relitigate a similar case, as they did against Japan in Germany. 10 years down the road. It's like they're protecting their interests. It's like the ah, you know, to borrow a Star Trek references. This is like the Jewish Away team that gets put in place in China. 40,000 of them disperse. Well, they also had Israel to go to, but they had to leave in a way, team there to make sure that everything was gonna operate correctly. Seated Ruth Weiss, who is an Austrian born, ah Ashkenazi Jew known as way Lou, she in China. These people even had Chinese names, just totally like shape shifters, but she became a teacher at the Jewish School in Shanghai. But of course there's a Jewish school in Shanghai. She took up a post at the radio division. Um, she was a journalist. She was a member of the Communist Party of China. Um, and she lived in Beijing until I don't know the thoughts or something. She died at age 97. She's just another one of these inner circle people, and it's kind of interesting. Like she's, she's put in charge of the education you have. The other guy is in charge of translating literature. You have a journalist who is writing at all the major newspapers, and then you have Sidney Rittenberg. Um, this is the guy that they say is the Jew behind communist China. He's a sip Arctic Jew born in South Carolina. So it's funny about this is he's probably got some relationships with the very same Jews. 200 years before that were flooding China with opiates almost like they're greasing the skids for Sidney Rittenberg to be there. His family was very well entrench in Charleston, South Carolina, politics. In fact, while attending school in Chapel Hill, he became a member of the Dialectic Society and the U. S Communist Party, and then somehow ends up in China. It's like, Wow, your family's been in South Carolina for generations taking control of local politics. And this guy just up and decides to go to China well does. He knew it was time. I mean communism, that was That was what was spreading on half of the planet, and it was one side of the kosher sandwich they were trying to grow. He worked closely with Mao Zedong, Judy Zhu and Lie and other leaders of the CCP during the Revolution, and was, with ease, Central Communist leaders at you non. He interpreted mouse messages for Harry Truman, President Harry Truman, who is a very huge, huge lover of Jews. He witnessed firsthand at what the upper levels of the CCP, and he knew many of its leaders personally. He also was the guy who approved of crackdowns on dissidents. Of course he did. It's just incredible. He worked for the Ging Wa News Agency and Radio Peking. During the 1st 3 decades of PRC history, he enjoyed remarkable influence in a country largely closed off to the outside world. His hype rifle profile came at a grave cost, though he was imprisoned twice and held in solitary confinement for a total of 16 years. Um, s O this guy. He was also the first American citizen to join the CCP. They interviewed him before he died and some interesting sort of anecdotal questions that were asked and then answered. So one of them was, When did you first actually meet Chairman Mao? Ah, he said it was in 1946. He shows up in China, and he is immediately taken to the weekly dance in the party headquarters building, he says. When we opened the door to go in Maoist dancing in the middle of the floor, he saw me stop dancing and after, shook his hand ish. After I shook his hand, he said, We'd like to welcome an American comrade to join our work, and he took me over to the side of the hall and sat me down in a chair and immediately said he wanted mean Ah wanted me to invite me to his place and spend a day or two just talking about America. So it's like it's like the guy just walks right in the door and is welcomed, you know, with no questions asked. It's just amazing, Um, how quickly this goes on. But these guys were untouchable just in case anybody wants to make the argument that these guys were obscure or on the side and really didn't affect them or where they were ignored. They asked the question. What were your circuit? What were the circumstances of your arrest in the 19 forties? How did you run into trouble with Mao? And how did Mao personally play a role in your rest? Or was it someone beneath him? And he says, No, no, no, nobody could have touched me or any other foreigner without the personal approval of Mao couldn't have been done. What happened was this story came out some years ago. Stalin's foreign trade minister in one of his old Bolshevik allies, Anastas Mickey n, otherwise known as the Armenian rug salesman, made a secret trip to China in 1949. I think in January, Ah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. This guy blames all this on Stalin. Of course, it's like no guy like your Jew and they suspected you fucking spying and so that they ask him, How long were you in prison at that time? He says, six years. The first was in total darkness. It was not good, but yeah, this their god in that I was gonna I was gonna say, You know, it's hard to make the case that you were only imprisoned because of Stalin's personal intervention. Stalin, Stalin, that cruel anti Semite when everyone else all of your other contemporaries and co ethnics are being thrown in prison, too. Yeah, I think there's something something greater going on here. Well, and then the political pressure amounts and he gets unlocked. So they asked him, What was it like to be released? How did that happen? He says. Well, one day the chief keeper unlocked my little cell and came in and said, Come with me. Someone wants to talk to you. So I went outside into the main prison corridor. Any unlocked a door I had never seen open before and let me in. There was a man whom I later learned was the first leader of the Chinese version of the C. I. A. The state Security Ministry. At that time, he was the bureau chief at the Ministry of Public Security, which was internal. Anyway, they had a chair there. I sat down, and I knew immediately something big was happening because you don't set down a counter revolutionary in a chair. He then issued a formal apology in the name of the central government. We were wrong. You are a good man. We mistreated you. We misunderstood. You will do everything possible to make it up to you. After that, we went through the process of picking jobs that I might want to do. Said, Well, if you want to go back to America, will send you back. And we'll give you enough money to start up. Whatever you want to dio you want to travel to Europe will send you to Europe. I want to stay in China Will give you a villa in the South. You don't even have to work. Well, what kind of what could have prompted this taking, taking this guy in its word, of course. Um because he could be telling a very tall tale here about, like, how How? Ah, you know, ingratiating the Chinese were to him And how Ah, you know how this is how he should be treated by a foreign government. But, I mean, they didn't let him out of jail. He did get put in there twice, and then, you know, It's pretty well documented that they that they apologized. And now these guys are treated like heroes. So right, they were treated like heroes and they weren't just lined up against the wall. Right? And this is This was during an era in China where if you were a counter revolutionary, if you were an enemy of the state, you know there would be no qualms about just killing you, right? And so it's very revealing that these people were were kept in prison. It's almost like a recognition of the power that, ah, that they had right. And that's and that's ah, and the desire for Mao to to tap into these people and to use them before his benefit. Yeah, and they have statues of these people all over the place. In China, you have Dr Jacob Rosenfeld. It was a Marxist and hola Coast refugee who fled to Shanghai to start a medical school in China, which later became the backbone for their medical system. Ah, he came to the CCP and began in 19 thirties Vienot, where he was a well to do urologist with the clinic course. He comes to China and starts up a clinic for urology and gynecology. Like this guy was really just, like, really into looking at some Chinese snatch. Apparently, um, in setting up this whole thing. Ah, he set up the successful practice also in obstetrics in Shanghai soon after he arrived in 1939 0 absolutely. Yeah, the whole thing. And so this is their doctor Mandala, like this is actually the doctor Mandala. I'm sure we should start looking Chinese. Look at these great innovations. An abortion we've brought to you from from Europe. Isn't it great? Yeah, yeah, absolutely. Um well, he eventually made it back to Tel Aviv, but he's just in one another. One of these in a girl, Parts of this. But every year the Chinese Embassy in Israel pays tribute to the tomb of Dr Rosenfeld in Tel Aviv. According to Chinese Ambassador Zong Youngjun tells The Times of Israel. By doing so, we want to reaffirm that the Chinese government and its people will never forget the friends who contributed to the founding in the development of the People's Republic. Dr. Rosenfeld is an outstanding example of our international friends says Chinese ambassadors on He is a great doctor. That saved many lives in China in a fearless soldier who devoted his life to the fighting of fascism. That's incredible. Well, they even didn't even dedicated a hospital. This guy in the Junan County very appropriately. Ah Rosenfeld Hospital where they have, Ah, an exhibition hall dedicated to the deeds of international fighter Mr Rosenfeld built in the 2000. Yeah, yeah, there are a lot of them. There are a ton of them. There was also Hans Mueller, a German Jewish doctor played a similar role to Rosenfeld is a field doctor for the eighth Route Army, the other major CCP Army group during World War Two in the Civil War. Unlike Rosenfeld, Moeller state in China and worked in various positions at hospitals and medical schools after the establishment of the PRC and until his death 1994. These guys air honored by the Chinese um, they are they are, you know, these are the people who ah, they looked up to the most, and it's it's kind of amazing that not only were they carved out, I mean, people have to understand. Just to be in China as a non Chinese person at this time was a really big deal. These people became citizens. They got elected on to Politburo committees. They get honored by the Chinese Embassy. They lived there until the end of their lives. Yes, they were imprisoned in for various reasons because they weren't going along with the plan, but yeah. I mean, this is this is pretty amazing. This this was not like, you know, hippie beatniks. Um, and what not from from America. These were these were committed Jewish revolutionaries who right in the thick of this whole thing and what they were doing, of course, is they were making sure that China would not just stay away from fascism and not just stay away from anti Semitism, but also be compatible for the eventual transition to capitalism. They had such an influence on Mao. In fact, Mao was quoted as saying China doesn't suffer from too much capitalism. It suffers from too little. So when the new regime took power, they developed socialism, collective economy, private capitalism, individual artisans, forming economy in one piece. And so, yeah, it's like kind of like taking you remember the old serial ports on computers that don't plug into shit these days. I mean, they just wanted to make sure that China was gonna be compatible with plugging into the rest of the world at such time when it would need to be opened up and become almost like they were preserving China with communism in the same way they preserved Eastern Europe. And they preserved Russia and kept it ripe so that they wouldn't turn into something that was unmanageable for Jewish power. And now it's gotten to the point where it was time to open up the doors. Right, mouse dead. Open up those doors. You know, Have a cultural revolution. Get things going, right? Yeah. And in that time came in the mid to late seventies when Mao had died in 76. And shortly after, in 1978 China officially adopts what became known as the open door policy. And during, you know, when Mao was in power, right? So it Yes, Jews were gaining quite a bit of influence and they were finding their way into the closest circles of Communist Party leadership and advisory positions. But China still prohibited most foreign investment, But it was not an open economy was not not ripe for ah, for exploitation by foreign powers in the same way foreign economic powers in the same way that the West was becoming and that Japan was becoming. And that had to change. And they went about changing that here in the late seventies. And you know, they did this by by starting in the seventies and through the nineties, Chinese leaders were seeking advice from Western economists, many of them Jewish. And this is again this Jewish fascinator, this ah fascination with Jews that many Chinese, including elites, had Ah, they went to talk to people like Milton Friedman about how the best way to plan their economy post Mao this guy from Oxford, Wladimir. It's Bruce who is another Jewish economist. Ah, and building for even actually went on to receive an honorary professorship at Food on the leading university in Shanghai in 1988. And, yeah, the 78 open door policy led to basically like the name states opening the door of of the Chinese economy to foreign companies, factories, workers, investment ownership, capital A. You name it, bring it all in and the the you know, in the following years, 220,004 and fund adventures Just like like snap of the fingers. They spring up all across China and by 1991 you had the vice premier, Shawn Shizhen, meeting with a delegation of quote distinguished American Jews, where he publicly declared that Jews were in especially industrious people. And by the end of 1994 not even 20 years into this over $300 billion of contracting investment that's just contracting investment had been agreed on from the West into China, and foreign direct investment in China has risen to 90. No excuse me $95 billion by 2008 and that was 2008 12 years ago. You look a twin numbers from 2019. China is now the world's second largest FBI recipient after the United States, and FBI inflows are continuing to increase this curve. This is one curve that has not been flattened between 27 2018 or 2017. Excuse me? Four. Direct investment rose from 136 billion to 139 billion. That's 4% an all time high. More than 60,000 companies were established by foreign investors in 2018 alone. That is a 70% increase compared to 2017. So in a span of ah 40 years, China's economy went from being relatively insular and and, ah, with very little outside involvement to being one of the largest, the second largest recipient of foreign capital in the world. And ah, this is a trend that is continuing and it has been extremely important. Now again, this is not like a light switch brain thing where it's it's either all foreign owned or not foreign owned. There still are provisions in Chinese regulations that ah, these foreign investors, these transnational foreign investors find very inconvenient that the Chinese government will close off sectors completely to foreign direct investment state companies. Air protected national flagships are protected. They they have the ability to operate independently of of judicial rulings and independent of regulations. And the Chinese state, of course, demands for in technology transfer and intellectual property, uh, to the Chinese state. So there are still some kinks to be worked out, right? This is displayed. His program, from the perspective of of the Jewish International capital system, is not perfect. But it's something they're working on, and it sure has come a long way Since the since the 19 seventies, this door has been opened and they are walking, right, Pruitt Now, I mean, we could look at the companies that are doing that are doing that. Who is walking through this open door? The U. S. Companies taking advantage of foreign direct investment to build factories, invest in manufacturing capabilities, hire support staff. We look at the list of companies that have profited the most from foreign direct investment over the last two decades. It's companies like Apple companies like Hewlett Packard, IBM, GM, Cisco Systems, Walmart, you name it. Now you get the ownership of these companies. And you know how much of these companies are owned by Shanghai Opium Importers by Kaifeng. Synagogue Builder Is jazz by The 11 tiene financial innovators over at places like BlackRock. Larry think in his Kadre of ah, of, ah, of juice Over there, Apple. Black Rock is a number three shareholder. Vanguard being number one hp. BlackRock number three, Vanguard number one, IBM number two in one, GM number two and number one Cisco Systems number two. Number one Walmart number two, number one. And then you look at the U. S. Companies that are benefiting from culturally and economically liberalizing China. Disney, for example, Number two number one Dow Chemical, who just opened a new specialty resin line in China. BlackRock is the number two shareholder, Starbucks again number two, and number one G E. BlackRock number four and Vanguard is number one. So we look at who is profiting from this open door policy, and it's black rock. People like Larry think these are the people that stand to profit into the trillions on their investments in China. Bound companies and China's open investment policies compared to those of the past relatively open their allowing Jews to further concentrate wealth and power in China. Pretty remarkable when you see the full extent of it. And ah, it's beyond FBI as well. Foreigners are now allowed. This is a recent decision. Foreigners are now allowed to purchase Chinese bonds and equities. By that debt. International investors presence in China. It's still it's still small, but it's growing. They're currently 3% of capitalization of the equities market and 2% for the bond market. But analysts expect this to increase by by double actually over the next five years. Remarkable. What's ah the extent of what's going on there. Now, as we mentioned, there is this sort of uneasy relationship between Jews and the Chinese, and I think you put in a good way. We defined it is studious, right? The an analytical where the Chinese will look at the Jews just as people who are, like, really good at making money because they haven't been as exposed to these other cultural elements. Not yet. Anyways, Um and this is this is born out. And when you look at ah, you look at how Chinese bit P business people view the Jews, right? Some of the most popular books in China are books like 101 Money Making Secrets of the Jews, The Financial Secrets of the Talmud and the Wisdom of the Jews. How to make the World's Money flow into your pocket. These have all been Chinese bestsellers. So there's some interest there. No, we look at ah, like the modern day equivalents, I suppose, of the written burg's and they're they're you know, Juries. Answer is, of course, getting close to power, instituting these gradual market reforms and gradually bringing China fully under their yoke, that is their plant anyways. And you know, the modern equivalents of the written birds and and the Epstein, Israel's or people Blake Robert Lawrence Kuhn, again an American born ju who is one of the leading experts and people who find themselves in Ge Jinping's inner circle. This guy, he's done ideologies run the gamut of Jewish occupations. He's been an investment banker and author, and, you know, as you dio at recipient of the China Reform Friendship Medal, which is China's highest honor available to foreigners, he writes glowingly of fusion Ping. He's written articles like Why should China needs you? Jinping as its core leader, Jinping's power has a purpose. He's the one person who can see China through its development plans and, since the nineties is fine, found himself advising Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, on special projects and economic policy. It was talked about his role in China to the Western media, and he has defined his most important work as quote participating in the global marketplace of ideas. Excuse me, facilitating China's transition to participation in the global marketplace of ideas to share the Chinese way of thinking toe, learn from the world as well, and to communicate in both directions. He says he's proud that this is now deemed to be the highest level of national importance. He says that China's commitment to international communications is very strong, and I am pleased to play my small part in it. So this is one of, you know, the guys who finds himself just like Mao had them in his inner circle. Mr. Kuhn is in using pings inner advisory circle and we're seeing now also a push in Chinese media of ah in China for China media to to liberalize, to institute liberalized market reforms and to liberalize socially as well, which will touch on here in a minute, but that we're seeing editorials now in the South China Morning Post. Like this quote, why China's capital liberalization needs to be a two way street. China has been opening up its financial markets to international investors over the past two decades. The removal of quotas for the qualified Foreign Institutional investor and Reem B qualified foreign institutional market schemes announced on Sept 10 is the latest milestone of this liberalization. Abolishing the quotas means investors can buy as much Chinese onshore equities or fixed income products as they wish, subject to foreign exchange requirements. Boosting foreign investors presence in China would diversify China's investor base, which is dominated by local Chinese investors, and dilute the tendency for a herd instinct and better manage market volatility. As we know jazz, when you introduce more Jews to the market, you end up with less volatile markets. The things they're just stable, smooth sailing over here in the West, he writes. Think of the financial system as a series of pipes, pumps and tanks. It works best when there is a two way flow, allowing the system to run smoothly and if it effectively now, you think OK, this is written by a Chinese guy Tai. We probably looking out for China's best interest, right? No. He is the chief market strategist for Asia Pacific at JP Morgan Asset Management. So open up your markets, my fellow China Hman, and we'll touch on the cultural stuff as well, because it is true that these movie companies, Disney etcetera, have had to censor or remove pieces for, ah, for the Chinese market. But this is something that's being worked on right again. All the irons air in the fire at once, and rest assured that the international jury is working on liberalizing China's attitude towards homosexuality. So in 1994 the Chinese Society of Psychiatry was established. They're responsible for publishing the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders Handbook, similar to the American GSM GSM six. Now I believe now, as China has open their doors to the West, it's not just economically right. They're trying to to synthesise Chinese intellectualism, Chinese psychology. They've been looking to seek validation of Chinese traditional medicine, including Chinese Chinese, traditional psychology with Western medicine in psychology. And to do this, they're courting these experts in the field industry leaders in fields including psychology. Now Confucianism is being revived in China as a traditional source of wisdom. Religion is becoming more accepted, especially Buddhism and Daoism. And while fading in the U. S. Freudian psycho analysis, Sigmund Freud has become more popular in China. The future of psychiatry in China, according to again quote experts, will encompass Freudian theory, confusion, practical advice and a quest for the harmony philosophy of Dow ism. Now, the 1st 2 additions of this Chinese classifications of mental disorders included homosexuality as a mental illness, much like the American DSM's. But in 2001 with the publication of the third edition, it was very suspiciously removed. You ask yourself why that was well for years, there's been an effort by a small army of therapists in the US Uh, as this article says, We're getting up at ungodly hours, staying up late in the night to teach the fundamentals of Freud to their Chinese counterparts. There's a two year intensive training program has been running since the early two thousands. Called the China American Psychoanalytic Alliance Kappa. This has been the result of several overlying factors. Chinese doctors searching for new theories and techniques to treat judge treat patients. And this explosion in sort of a Freudian pop psychology in China. But the Freudian ism, of course, thoroughly discredited losing footing in the US become largely irrelevant except in the minds of mid wits were like, Oh, you want to do thing is because you have small Penis and like Mom like, you know, that's the only, ah, hell, foothold for organism has in the US anymore. But ah, gaining ground in China And the International Psychoanalytical Association is holding its first major conference in Beijing. It held that in 2011. And what did they have to do? Has to get this recognition to get the recognition from the international psychiatric community that China is a legitimate place and has legitimate theories? And these are not just crazy. Taoist Ah, ramblings. They're valid psychoanalytical theories. Well, they had to bend the knee on homosexuality and Kappa. Of course, this program to to spread Western psychology into China, has members from the United States, members from Canada and, of course, members from Israel. And the leader of this international psychoanalytical analytical association is you'll never guess. But of course it's a woman. Last name Levi. So, yeah, these were the levers of power that were being exercise to, Ah, get this these Chinese institutions to liberalize, to drop homosexuality from their list of mental disorders. And it worked. So you and of course, they have to put down roots with Zionism as well. And they've made some nascent efforts to set up shop in China. They've The Chinese government has decided to transform places of worship into Communist culture centers and rewrite and interpret the holy books of religions such as Islam and Christianity, but not synagogues and not Judaism. They fuck over everybody else but not the Jews. Israel is actually trying to engage in a long term plan to infiltrate China, and Tel Aviv wants to build a Zionist lobby in China. Of course, they dio. But to do this they need to find a Jewish family or group settled in the country. So Zionist researchers have rolled up their sleeves and pursued an individual family who settled in China. In the past, they've discovered such a family settled in eastern China, and this has become their starting point. Following long and finally planned efforts. They convince this group that they need to return to their true religion, culture and ideology. They bring some of them to Israel, naturalized them and some volunteer in Israel's army. The end of the study, Jewish individuals are assigned to top positions in the judiciary. In China, professor Dr Nadia Helmi speaks of an organization called Shavei Israel, which confirms this development. The task of this organization is defined Jews wherever they are in the world and make them Jewish and Zionist again. Although they do not have a missionary in Judaism, they bypassed this rule in China in the organization Judy Ises Thousands of Chinese citizens when they Judy eyes the Chinese, they marry off Chinese girls in thus form a Zionist Chinese generation. Starting from the preschool level, they opened schools and establish synagogues in the style of Confucian temples. Israel's ambassador to Beijing is working hard for the government to officially recognize the Zionist Chinese generation, claiming that the names of the family have changed over time and by forging existing names, reveals Jewish ones in China. There is a close rapport between the academy and the government to influence decisions on the Middle East and other regions. Israel's also using it in their see no Israeli academic relations are at their highest level. Israel established several joint research institutes in China, opened Jewish culture and Hebrew language departments in its universities, facilitated Chinese expeditions to Israel, and conducted research competitions with high view value prizes in the Jewish region of China. Israel also opened a university last December in China's Shanta How Russia's the only other country to have opened a university in China other than Israel. On the other hand, Israel's raising special rabbis to guide the Jews in China these air exemplary events, China implements medieval methods of torture to assimilate Muslims. But Israel's efforts to Judy eyes the Chinese, they sleep. Yeah, yeah, and you could look it. Ah, you could look at China's relationship with Israel and people will say and they'll bring up And you know, this is This is true that China has voted against Israel with U N. Security Council when they condemned the Gaza flotilla attacks and so based based right. But then you look at what they're doing with the belt and road initiative. And if China, again, the argument is from some people that China is simply looking out for their people's best interest, and that's it. Also the case then, then why is the belt and road initiative very conspicuously making a detour around the entirety of the Middle East? That's not the most efficient, efficient, rather not taking the most efficient routes right there, there, intentionally bypassing Israel and bypassing the Middle East because they don't want to confront Israel's operations in the region. They don't really want to put an end and stabilize the region, which would be in the interest of China at China's interest, is not having a a war torn Middle East China's interest If they're going to move their factories to Africa, China's interest would be stabilising all of that. And and, you know, maybe you could even say Well, if Israel can't can't abide by being a peaceful regional partner than maybe they have to be wiped off the face of the earth or something. But yeah, China is not doing anything to confront Israeli and U. S adventurism in the region there, simply ignoring it and by passing it when when the rubber hits the road in a meaningful way, U N security. Your U. N resolutions are like, visualize the jerk off hand motion it is. Yeah, well, And what about thes Boomer? I was talking to Jesse about this boomer conservative takes on Ah, the danger of China holding America's debt Like we bar all this money from the Chinese. It's like, No, we just sell them lots of T bills, notes and bonds. And in fact, Japan holds more of America's debt than China. And in fact, China has been trying to get rid of as much as half of American held debt. Is it can China's? The second has the second greatest amount of US debt have a trillion dollars worth of bonds, which is minuscule compared. So what the debt is today, and to the extent that anybody gives a shit about the debt, I'm only mentioning it for relative terms people make such a big deal about. We're borrowing money from the Chinese. It's like no there willingly borrowing our bonds like nobody's forcing them to do that at gunpoint. And people, I think boomers try to associate the raising the debt limit look, or gonna be more in debt to China. No, we're not like you're more in debt toe Larry. Think that's how that works? And so, yeah, I mean, so that's That's another retarded thing that they always spring up. But just talking about contemporary politics here for a second, Um, China is also forging a relationship with Israel. Or, rather, Israel is forced. Forging a relationship with China and the U. S. Isn't too happy about it. But who could have predicted this? Um, this is not a story that's gotten a lot of news, But apparently Mike Pompeo said that unless Israel reduces cooperation with China, the U. S. Might reduce intelligence sharing. It's like what do you mean by that? Pompeii? They just They already get the intelligence with their spies, like they don't need you to reduce the amount of intelligence that they get. And this is also a toothless sort of shrieking dance by the US government. Ah, but what they're really upset about is the port of Haifa. Um, they're also worried about China getting too cozy with a lot of Israel's growing tech industry. This is one of the things that they're worried about as well. But the U. S government I mean this quote unquote special relationship that it has with Israel. It's like, Do you think Israel is looking at the United States? Is this special place that it has this relationship? It's like, No, they've used the U. S. To the extent that they can. And it's been something that we've talked about quite a bit. Eventually they're going to divest from the United States and China. If they can manage to get China to open up and they are succeeding there even more, then why not do both right? Like, why not, you know, try to forge a relationship with China. They want trying a wants this special deal with Ah, Israel's Haifa port. Israel, slated to give the Shanghai International Group S I. P G. Has already put a to $2 billion into this project for this port of Haifa. And then you also have The China Railway Tunnel Group, which is a part of belt and road, has also won a tender to dig tunnels and operate Elektronik systems for a new Tel Aviv commuter rail line worth $1.4 billion. There several more. This is upsetting to Pompeo in Bolton because they're trying to saber rattle against China and Israel's just like look, I'm gonna work with, you know, whoever is gonna whoever is gonna work with me, you know? And maybe maybe it's not you United States, is they divest and and what not? And of course, China has always in the past has maintained support for Palestine, but that that has started to slip as well. And so, you know, the Trump administration condone can kick and scream and do what they want. But if Israel wants tow hook up with China, I mean, there's nothing the U S could do to stop them. I mean, it's it's all part of the whole part of the same big pool, anyway, isn't it? Yeah, that's that's absolutely right. And the idea that Israel has sure there is a significant Jewish investment that's been made in the United States. But that's and this is why you see them cultivating these relationships and these these power structures in China and facilitating massive investment into China because it's essentially getting the next horse ready to go. For when the current one gets sent off to the glue factory and the West broadly has been in decline, one could argue for, you know, hundreds of years and the Chinese, they're still an ascendant society, which is why you know, of course, they're the up and coming power, and it makes sense for for Israel to align themselves with China and you know, the Chinese again. They take a very like, analytical look to it. And if they believe that getting closer to Israel and getting closer to organized jewelry can make them wealthier can bring them more money to make them, Ah, help them emerge from the middle class area, emerge into a middle class country and not be 1\/3 world country second world country and out shore their production and manufacturing to Africa and use slave labor. If they see the Israelis and Jury is as a compatible partner for that project, they are absolutely going to make that deal well. And it's also more of this rendition of Cold War politics where it's like play playing one off the other. It's like America versus Russia. Now it's America versus China. And this is why participating in the saber rattling is just so stupid. You're participating in a kosher dialectic, no matter which side you you pick. Whether it's the you know, China must pay or Chinese believes in its own people. I mean, each one of those is just not reality. And, you know, I mean just illustrate this point. BlackRock Larry think 50% of black Horrocks growth is going to be China in the next five years. 50% of their growth they're divesting from America and investing in China. According to Fink, BlackRock is quote very engaged with Chinese regulators in the process of building a majority controlled business. So they're opening China up and they're taking control of it. And BlackRock is the firm that will make sure that nobody else has the power to leverage China. They're making sure that they're sitting on top of this pile. As China opens up as people from within China open the gates of China's market, Larry Fink is their toe walk right in the front door. He's become increasingly bullish on Chinese equity markets as the country plans to introduce a NASDAQ style startup board in Shanghai, pushing for new ways the private sector can fund its domestic companies. In fact, Larry Fink remember we talked about Aladdin in the Black Rock Deep Dive. Aladdin is this massive data center that BlackRock owns that essentially has digitized the U. S stock market in making trades and deciding risk in in making, um, making purchases and asset allocation and everything else they want to build one for the Chinese in Shanghai, and that is all gonna be BlackRock. Meanwhile, BlackRock Temasek, which is a company in Singapore, have taken up a majority stake in wealth management with the Chinese Construction Bank Corp. Which is the second largest bank in China. They've forged a partnership. Chinese banks, wealth management subsidiaries have broad business capacity, including launching publicly traded products, so it so they're attracted to international asset managers. Forming wealth management ventures would also allow foreign asset managers toe leverage. Chinese Banks Distribution Network We've received increasing enquiries on this option. So you have. BlackRock. The world's largest asset manager in Temasek, will own the majority of the new venture due to ownership restrictions of wealth management units by Chinese banks. So China has allowed for an asset managers to set up private fund businesses. Big mistake. China next plans to scrap ownership rules on mutual fund businesses in April. Wealth management ventures offer another option for money managers to enter the country with controlling stakes. So you see, this whole idea of only 6% of China is owned by foreign companies and they they believe in the Chinese people. And so they're not allowing anyone in. Yeah, guy, that's not happening. And Larry Fink is going to be running the whole fucking show in a matter of decades. And you know what adds insult to injury to this whole thing is Corona Virus has actually caused the first time for the very first time in 50 years a reduction, a contraction in the Chinese economy. So China is going to be needing. Larry thinks help even Mawr. That's why you know Jews air not that bullish or is not that bearish on the U. S. Government being shut down? Because if USG is shut down and Europe is shut down and China's going full steam, just like they transition Ah, there their businesses and everything to China and making sure that China comes out on top of this thing, they rescue China. It's like and the other thing is here. The other reason why you're seeing the saber rattling to is they want Jean Ping gone. Unless G Ping is willing to cooperate, he seems to be willing to cooperate. So far, he's got a friend and coun as you mentioned. But they want. They want China to be more cooperative. That's a lot of what you're seeing. That's what the banging on the back door was with Hong Kong protests. This was America, sending a signal that China, you better play ball and play ball. They are right. Yeah, that's exactly right. And they always want things to move faster, right? And it would be very it would not be credible for Jim being or for the just hand over the keys to the kingdom overnight. This has to be a gradual process. But it's very important to point out that this process is ongoing. And we are. I don't know what the metaphor would be were like the cart at the very top of the roller coaster peering over the edge right now. Ah, you could even argue that we're halfway down with these liberalizing of of several of foreign ownership rules and the incursion of BlackRock owned companies into the U. S. Again when you look at the companies the U. S. Companies that are shifting operations to China that are opening up businesses in China that are pivoting to China as their next market, these are all companies that are owned. The Black Rock is in the top two shareholders. It's either black rocker, Vanguard number one and usually that that combination of one and two and even these Chinese companies, companies like Alibaba, right, responsible for a lot of the supply chain for everything from restaurants toe through some retail stores in the U. S. BlackRock top shareholder. Not even close is that they own $19 billion worth of Alibaba s. Oh, yes, when you look at the state of things and, ah, you know, you might might ask. Well, okay. Isn't it already done? You know, isn't it's already over. Don't Jews already have total power? Well, not quite. And this is what they're working on. This is what they're working towards. So the road ahead, you know, they still have a ways to go on increasing China's exports, actually increasing China's international economy. The US cross border financial flow is four times larger than China's. Still, despite all of the international trade, that's what they're working on by relaxing ownership rules for mutual funds and investment accounts. Much of China's economy still being domestic. And again, these are things that they're working on their working on unchanging all of this. And yeah, I think that that just about takes us to ah to the present day isn't just we want we want to look at ah Jewish perspective on this and rounded out. Yeah. Yeah, And close it up. Yeah, go ahead. Yes. So this is again This is going back to that book written by maximum the indestructible Jews. And this was written in the seventies, and it's interesting to see his vision he had at the time for what China could become and with the rule he envisioned China having in the global Jewish power structure and to see how much of that is as we know now, coming true really, writes quote. According to precedent, we would expect jewelry to sync with Western civilization. But again, according to President, we should also expect them to emerge in a new civilization. According to Spangler, the new title waves of Civilizations should be those of Russia and China. It should be no Whitmore impossible for the Jews to establish viable diaspora centers in Russia and China that it has been in other lands, other cultures. Having shown our ability to establish diaspora centers in such diverse social, economic and religious societies as Babylonia, Persia, Greece, Roma Partha Sarsania and the Islamic empire, as well as in the Catholic and Protestant Christendom's why not Russia and China? One thing history teaches us is that we cannot count on the present to perpetuate itself. Countries that were once pro Jewish have turned against the Jews bitterly and vice versa. The possibly of Jews in China today, in 1971 should not preclude the possibility of a diaspora center taking root there. Just as in the past, diaspora centers have risen in countries where previously there had been no Jews. Ideologically, China. She could be a fertile civilization for the Diaspora Center. Because the Chinese of today are even more Judy ized than even the Puritans of colonial America. Though the Chinese may not make up see essence to obey sauce Excuse me, the Jewish heritage. They may not know a Jew from a Christian. Their ideology is more Jewish in origin than that, even of Western civilization. Amazing to see how much of that is bearing out and and how he is unfortunately being proven correct. Yeah, that was written, like, 50 years ago. So we're pretty amazing, but yeah. I mean, as faras juice and China go can be summed up like this very, very, very succinctly for what we just discussed in the last hour and 20 minutes. And there are 1,000,000 different rabbit holes that you could go off on and will probably revisit this a number of times. Um, but Jews have had a presence in China for a very long time and most most prominently in the 18 hundreds and then ramping up into the early 20th century. They fled with their capital to Shanghai and droves during World War Two. And then this culminated in the 1949 revolution. It's funny. Wherever Jews go, there's there's revolution. It's funny how that happens. But then you left the away team, this cadre of juice that became part of Mao's inner circle that remained there for decades. It led various parts of government, especially in finance and education. Ensuring the Chinese system of communism would be compatible with an eventual transition to hybrid capitalism fit for the Chinese but more importantly, fit for themselves. So this is how they've built up leverage up through the present day. They couldn't let off the gas for even a moment in the goal, of course, just like Russia's to transition China out of communism the way they did with Russia and so many other countries. Enter Larry Fink, Michael Bloomberg At Al. The transformation is complete. G is sort of in the way whether he wants to be cooperative or not, Time will tell, but there's not gonna be a war in China. They're just trying to foment potential regime change and, if not regime change, just simple policy changes about who can come in and have controlling stakes in various businesses. And that's all this is. There's not gonna be a war in China. No one's gonna pay for anything except for you. We will pay the price for this. We will pay the price for this. And there's not gonna be businesses coming back from China and going somewhere else. And in fact, I don't even know that businesses will go elsewhere there. I mean, Black Rock is about to dump trillions of dollars into Chinese markets. You think they're gonna move businesses to some other country Now you can say that they're cheaper leg labor markets, obviously, and there always are. But now they're getting Chinese ready. They're getting China ready to be the powerhouse of the of the East. So write it right. And even if they do move labor to another country, that doesn't mean the wealth is going to go there. But it doesn't mean that this this is going to be new wealth center. These will essentially be as they're constructing. Now he's will essentially be slave labor apparatuses in in Eastern Africa and elsewhere and in places for them to cheaply extract. Resource is out of the ground and you're right jumping. He sort of a wild card from their perspective. He's not there guy for sure. But he's also not anti Zionist. He's not standing. He's not putting his foot down and resisting these changes that are taking place. And as we know, they always want to move faster. This is why they would rather have someone like the Chinese nationalists of Old Sun Yat sen or a shank I sheck. They'd rather have a modern equivalent of someone like that in power in China than is usual Ping. So it's sort of maybe counterintuitive when you ask. Well, why would they be fomenting rage against China when they have all these investments there? There's not going to be a destruction of these investments, right? The Starbucks that Black Rock is financing the construction of in China are not going to be leveled by a predator missiles. It's not going to happen. What you might happen where what what might happen if anything would be, and what their goal would be would be a peaceful transition of power that leads the economy and this financial services industry they're building leaves that intact while replacing the leader with someone they can reliably count on. That's there. That's what they want to see. A joint. Yeah, that's I mean, that's really the bottom line here. And as faras you know, as far as American, sort of trying to get angry at China and be racist toward China and John, even Donald Trump's trade war. Donald Trump's trade war, as it turns out of hindsight, wasn't anything more than fulfilling this agenda for Jews. They wanted to put pressure on G to get leverage. Uh, like what they wanted in when it hurt American farmers. They gave handouts to big Gaber business and said, Fuck you, farmers. Suicides have climbed to record levels in all of this isn't because we're bringing factories back to America. It's to kick the door open for Larry. Think about that. I think about that issue McGaha your way to 2020 right guy. So, yeah, that's about all we've got for this weekend. But as always, there is some other bottom stacks that we'll get to those probably in the middle. So anyway, I hope you guys have a good weekend and we'll catch you guys. Uh, midweek show
