Jay Sekulow is China ready to mount a full-scale invasion of Taiwan keeping you informed. Now this is Taiwan's President is now vowing to defend his democracy against aggressive China want to hear from you, Sharon poster, call one 800 683110 essay and fortifies magazine and in it she warns of catastrophic consequences if the island with the full China. She says this would mean authoritarians have the upper hand over democracy and chance that fault-tolerant doesn't seek compensation.

It would do whatever it takes to defend itself, and now your jury just a moment here a Logan Sekulow foam. I drove at 1800-684-3110 1-800-684-3110. Again, we are talking about the topic today which is the ongoing situation in China as reports are coming into China could be mounting a full-scale invasion of Taiwan in the coming years. What you just wrote a piece is available on ACLJ.org right right you go about shortly yeah yeah there are several things happening course the Chinese media is promoting this idea based in some facts that the US is in decline. They have warned our allies writ large that they cannot depend on us to protect them and are using Afghanistan in Vietnam as examples of that.

So while there increasing their rhetoric about Taiwan President. She is also said that the ultimate not the ultimate goal. The ultimate result.

He says will be that Taiwan will be incorporated into China by force if necessary, he says. And while all this is going on.

We have all of these flights of Chinese fighter aircraft and bombers into Taiwan's airspace hundred and 45 flights in the last four days 750 flights into their space this year and so the Sabres are being rattled. Taiwan is rightly concerned and the United States.

We support Taiwan we have of ever since the revolution in China in the late 1940s.

We also have a very complicated and ambiguous relationship with them as well because we recognize the one China policy, which says that the Chinese communist are one China right so it's kind of a mess we do. My dad was joyous. It also will let you know that you're watching the researcher saying that there is currently a I will recording this active shooter in Texas at a high school just wanted to know that our prayers are out that were monitoring it.

Not a whole lot we can do it comes to coverage what you know the world where we are live right now and as a people watch. The topic is different than what major news sources are covering and are curious if we are lively, our life will be monitoring that as we do. We have two minutes left, but then we got my dad back so I was I would follow.

Wes and I think this is really where you kinda got a focus on this and I will be take a look over the last year during 2020. What type of accident were for flights go where the Chinese Communist Party taking over Taiwan were they doing it and I think the answer is no, they were doing it then and I don't will get the numbers observed or available but they are deftly saber rattling. But the problem is, the United States is not as leading from behind.

Again this is and I we recall that leading this is exactly what Pres. Obama wanted those same people are now been promoted in the final administration. So when you expect that you're going to get. We have to look at concrete ways in which the American people will respond. That includes Congress. I mean nobody wants a war in in Asia. I mean obviously that would be a disaster. And China is a huge trading partner of the United States, only a professor Hutchinson's thoughts on that. So we come back in the breaker to get into all of this, but this affects every body that Watson is broadcast right now you are impacted by what happens.

China lot by his out of what you buy a lot of BD assume a lot of things happened in China is a lot of stuff happening now to see working to keep you engaged in covering this topic.

Which of these very important for American people to not only here but to understand how we do have Odyssey lines open right now. What 106 843-110-1800 684-3110 were to be discussing all of this situation in China how its impact America also. Again, we are covering the shooter situation. Having a Texas high school will keep you updated with anything that needs to be set on that bind under local coverage, more secular once again 164 3110 challenges facing Americans are substantial time and are now more freedom and sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice for decades now ACLJ on the front lines protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms and then remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times.

The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member.

Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing become a member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice is, is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn is called mission will show you how you are personally support the publication includes a look at all major ACLJ cases were fighting for the rights of pro-life activists and vacations weighing 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the abortion industry and what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership in the ACLJ is empowering the right to question a free copy of mission in life today online ACLJ/secular. We are joined by my dad the remote. We also have all coalesced Smith in studio that excitement will have on record L as other panels would join us throughout the show. Currently talking about the situation in China and what it means and what you need to know is the American citizens on its potential invasion of Taiwan again. I did one also say that we are covering what's going on in Texas right now, which is an active shooter is a Texas high school. I will update you as necessary. I would encourage you that if you are in that area and you want the most up-to-date coverage of that public find another source and another want to tell people to turn off our show, but we don't have that information on hand will just reporting what we hear on the news so you're looking for something more specific on that. I encourage you to find another source we are talking today though about China. There is a new piece about to go up on ACLJ.org. Dad from Col. West Smith, sit right here because I think people here China you know it it's one of those threats that you can't hear the political season but we don't think about it as much because like you said you log things in China's law deals with China. China is always happening.

The movies that you see how a lot of movie studios are coming out with movies straight from China.

It's just part of our culture.

At some point where I found my pocket watches on this is an attack on Taiwan which would be and we have agreements with them with an Apple defense agreement for 5000 psi. Col. Smith, that person. We have agreements with with Taiwan but is it include sending military troops if they were invaded by China because it talked about global conflict.

At that point right yet there is no agreement like that we have not really said one where the others whether or not we would support them with military forces on the ground there. The relationship is one that is referred to as strategic ambiguity. Following Pres. Nixon reaching out to China in the early 1970s we adopted this one China policy per their request that there is one China and that's the communist Chinese but at the same time. In 1979, Congress passed the Taiwan relations act, which says that we will, we are obligated by law to arm Taiwan to support them with military equipment and weapons so this is the background is a very complicated ambiguous relationship.

China, meanwhile, is saying more so in the last year that they will reunite Taiwan with her country.

Not that is out of town or city you like what okay so let's play this sound from the presence asked the question was going to buy that will have free Wi-Fi that we are with you here about abiding by the Taiwan agreement. What is China's obligation they have none that that was a very lively statement. Yeah that was not reassuring at all.

Basically what he just said was you. We are urging China not to attack but we will abide by our agreement to give weapons to the Taiwanese Taiwan has 24 million people. They are, they are armed heavily because of us. But at the time that there's no way they could succeed in a war with China short of someone else helping them but I want to make clear what the President set on what he just said. He said he spoke to presidency and he said, and we made it clear that I don't think he should do anything other than abiding by the agreement, but he is not part of that agreement is Communist Party did not sign on to that agreement. So there's nothing for him to abide by which they raise raises the economic weapon and professor Hutchinson the law and economics. Let's face it, we had to be real here.

China and the United States trading is probably still one of our biggest trading partners if not the biggest. I think you're right. And so geopolitical events may bleed into economics, and to every arena in American life. So we should keep in mind that China is the leading supplier of medicine drugs to the American people on talking about legal drugs here. There also a leading supplier of illegal drugs. In addition, we depend on China for cell phone technology and production they purchase copious amounts of our direct we are right now witnessing a battle in Congress over whether or not to raise the debt ceiling, and I think at any moment in time, to the extent that it provides a strategic advantage to China they could decide to pull the plug on our economy, and so one of the things that are listener should keep in mind is that China and many of our opponents in the world. They are playing a very long strategic game and they are not prepared to accept no for an answer and I think listening to Pres. Biden speak.

I believe it was yesterday. There's no reason why China should be deterred from taking action that they see in their own interest.

After all, China has witnessed the American surrender in Afghanistan. After all, China has witnessed the fact that we have given up protecting the sovereignty of this nation. With respect to our southern border and after all we are playing a game with terrorist regimes in the Middle East and were prepared apparently to cave to Iran. So if you look at all of this from a Chinese government perspective this is increasingly a right time to test the will of the Biden administration and to test the will of the American people in Taiwan I think could be a part of a perfect storm loaded.

I don't have any updates on the know from where I live there's nothing on the situation in Texas quickly so we can cover it in detail because obviously were were were not resources down there.

I will just sent me notice something about much other than the confirmed multiple people have been shot. This is a medical teams and they put out a statement saying they're setting up an area to reunite with your children. If you are there locally and I had a lot of that have been following it again.

As I've said, and not encourage people to not listen to our job so you should. This is very important topic. But if you're local and you need immediate answers find on your local Dallas FI look at us. We run it will have a said that people to govern a new show that sent other currently setting up a relocation point at the Mansfield before consider for the performing arts, so I will cover that as needed. But again, that's if you don't know what's happening. There is a good look like a school shooting that's happening currently in Texas or is it just data in a high school so I see our prayers and will keep our updates coming for that we did want to keep on this topic.

We do have a call and I think we should go ahead and take it.

Let's go to bury his calling in Virginia online to there's an interesting guy? Hello there okay Chinese command and debate and going to Taiwan. What's the literary production command states that what you think that happened there failed to cure Vietnam and I'm just wondering what's gonna happen that what we really appreciate your service, but it's hard to know exactly what they would do a minute with what they said and II think this you know it is most abide by the Taiwan agreement but he wants Chinese to abide by the Taiwan agreement which they're not hard up they invented up in Capitol Hill. So can I sleep all topic of China is a is a lot there's a lot of stuff in there.

What is the sense on Capitol Hill right on that. Well, it's people certainly agree with the assertion he made a few minutes ago the Chinese is important economically IJ, but I think one of the areas where maybe this administration needs to be more honest with itself on its relations with China, is the fact that there also an adversary may look there's there's no hiding the fact that China wants to be the world's next superpower and you see them taking actions in multiple different ways to do that, certainly economically. Prof. Hutchison touched on those there's certainly guilty of all sorts of IP theft that you now you see the the military maneuvers that they're taking the threatening maneuvers towards Taiwan and then certainly the response to cover 19 J I think could have been rooted in the idea that if they could get an advantage around the world. They would want to take that and so I think you have to approach in each issue with China, not just from the standpoint that there economically important but also that they can be an adversary and I think when it comes to the to the Biden administration. The caller's question certainly it is a good one. What would we do if we got there, but I think the more important question for this moment, J is how do you prevent it to getting there and you know continuing to arm Taiwan according to the agreement is certainly a part of it, but you've also got to be tough. Economically, you've got to be willing to level the sanctions when they do engage in IP theft how you got a hold them accountable for what happened after cover. 19. This administration has not been willing to do that. And in this moment JI think it's actually those other efforts that hopefully would prevent a military conflict is that's it.

That's a place that were the rest the world certainly doesn't want to be.

I think that I think you're absolutely right but I does show Logan with Becky where to go to break what they say okay because of your sweetness. There were about all this is not only putting up papers and giving real thought to this offer experts on her own table were dealing with on Capitol Hill as well and encourage people then to support the work of the ACLJ that's how we do all of this in Logan. You could talk about that for a moment, but that is part of how we do all absolute scores were ACLJ chicken on the latest news blogs bids we have going on ACLJ.org guesstimate is enough social media platforms you search for Jay Sekulow ACLJ we are there Facebook on YouTube on Instagram find where they are talking about important issues keep you informed and engaged support the work of the ACLJ financially going ACLJ.org Rick Grenell joined us in the next only one.

You are already a member. Thank you.

Not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life changing, member today ACLJ joined shortly by Rick Grenell or one of our advisors and I with the rents connection difficulties. Let us know when he is up but we are continuing the conversation on China info lines are open at 1-800-684-3110.

I currently I did what I dress as I have the topic about reachability segments is if you're looking for information on the Texas high school shooting in others a statement being made right now will track information of what's going on. We are currently not covering that is a full show. Just because if you need that you can find other sources that can provide better, more up-to-date coverage that's of your locally or you have issued questions about that you find upon other outlets, but we are available right now. Take your phone calls about situation China because talk to Wesley or West. I think we think of China for a lot of normal Americans. You're kind of its existence in the ether. We know that a lot of our our electronics. A lot of everything is made in China would not really considering the threat. Supposedly that could come from it in a global scale, that there is a real threat here that the West, virtually all of the West, including the United States is dependent on China for so much of what we use on a day-to-day basis as well as our finances and China thus far has not been made to pay a price for any of their misdeeds, whether human rights abuses Internet fraud, cyber attacks, theft of intellectual property, invading part of India.

They don't they have invaded about 27,000 mi. in India, the coded lack of cooperation to cover up all of those things they have been made to pay no real price sanctions and warnings have little effect on China data that we have now Rick I joining us via phone had some issues with his video connection, but I'll let you take from your dad where you want to leave this conversation so all coursework with the service director of national intelligence and also ambassador to Germany and conservative) almost a decade so written in the situation China rattling sabers again.

This time, threatening Taiwan we can hear Quincy a lot of Sabbath saber rattling during your administration with Presidents from what you read on the situation and also in that regard. The Chinese are really electric flyovers. We and we talked about the economic trades and impact that we have with Chinese but how do you see that when we talk about that threat is a former director of national intelligence where you write this will clearly well. I discovered that there's a difference between a threat of military action in a credible threat of military action. When Donald Trump was President and it pretty regularly, would confront them.

Whether it was about the leader when the current B manipulation. He was very clear with the Chinese that the behavior what the problem and he dangled out with them a more close relationship that the behavior would change, and that they would have never done what they're doing now Taiwan under a competent patient be very clear about that. This is the danger of having a President and Delphi value content that put America part because the opposite of America part is content that envelope with the now whether it the Russian weather at the Iranian whether it the North Korean mallets I need that by statement being half dead, and thereupon the far have been very weak, with only encourage bad behavior from countries around the world. So when you look at a situation like this. And as we talk about the economic side of this and let's be clear most of the medicines we Come out of China. The Chinese were to to invade Taiwan, which they're threatening to do what I say, let's react. Look, I think a great point. We have found ourselves in a situation where a lot of lights came and up in China because cheap.

Let's remember that that that many of the manufacturer have gone over the hour I found Brenton are made and assembled in China and we have to be able to do is recognize the long-term by heat opponent that we have in China and lately it feels like an enemy. And what we have to be able to do is recognize that bringing that the piping home we saw that in the post-COBIT reaction where map and glue them, and other products were all made in China and we will hold them to the Chinese manufacturing we gotta bring that home not only for Congress start mandating that but you know I've been a big hit for not allowing American company have contract in China and without US intelligence because I think that the need to be able to bring all white cane all began to unwind.

I fell from the chief good of China and then will be able to I think have a stronger economic hand in and let's be honest, that's what the American way more than our military might always be using all of the tools of the economy and the power and the engine of the United States, and that without it. Well, here's an interesting thing so silly. Rick is also present by the reporter comments towards China's publication over Taiwan response China has. I've spoken with G about time China we agree will abide by the Taiwan agreement. That's where we are and we made it clear and I don't think he should be doing anything other than abiding by that agreement.

United States is a party to that agreement. Chinese Rick China on Taiwan. Of course not and and let's remember that the Chinese have a very wrong policy and that one China, which is very clear to the United States that they believe Taiwan, Hong Kong, is there if they one China policy and by the way, any part of the United States government. Any politician and anyone in the administration method and begin to call Hong Kong or or Taiwan, a country or or start to treat them as a separate entity of China. There is an immediate reaction from China on US diplomat and other day that we have a one China policy and usually the American back down pretty quickly on that though this idea that somehow we have an agreement on Taiwan baloney. We count all of that to be rather fascinating and request Wesley got two minutes left so far your marketing your grade to the foreign policy initiatives of the administration a conversation. What's your sense.

I can even get an app that you know they keep saying that they diplomat the back rent on it back and not back and repeat across the board. Look at me now. The printer that the bike know what was going on.

We got an app, foreign policy, and absent President Rick. We appreciate your insight is always a great habit of part of our team here at the ACLJ and I again service director of national intelligence served as ambassador Germany. 10 years of the IP are you when we can get more qualified people and folks and Rick would tell you this to your support of the ACLJ makes all of this possibly look at our foreign policy team say the slogan of the best in the world with some of the best and brightest in the world as part of our team is absolutely not just our entire team immediately. Everyone digital media so I see the show at each and every day on all your social media outlets on YouTube and on ACLJ.org and read a half-hour coming up on secular info lines are open for your calls at 1-800-684-3110.

The discussion going about all things are happening. The relationship China Taiwan and with America circuit 100 684 $0.31 for the ACLJ ACLJ.org is under local station broadcasting live for another half-hour on our Facebook page on our YouTube channel to search ACLJ Jay Sekulow ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedoms and rights in court and Congress and the public of the American Center for Law and Justice is on your side you're already a member.

If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ keeping you informed and now is J secular got an update on the prayer with our audience and text big audiences. The state of Texas.

What's the latest loaded yes and universally mother was a school shooting that happened this morning in Texas. The latest is currently four people were shot. What but I know deaths have been these been confirmed.

That is a positive lease, but as of right now I three people were taken to hospital one refuse treatment, and the person of interest, however, has is to get away. Is it a silver 2018 Dodge charger in there seeking him in Arlington's 18-year-old suspect so here in the Texas Air election got that information out to see if we are in the Arlington area. So that's the update. The update is currently reason for people shot. I know deaths, which is great but the person the current shooter is currently still at large and is made his escape and is no longer on the property of the school to his 18-year-old in a 2018 silver Dodge charger will initially spread that information as we have well alright so were to get back to another issue coming up and I want to go to best in a moment that's an international criminal court overreacted but Harry, one of the back for a moment economic side, and that is what China and the will of the ICC in the next segment.

A lot of medications come out of China to meet with the Senate. They invaded Taiwan.

It's not that easy for the United States to just disengage.

I think that is correct and I think that is particularly correct because the Biden administration is currently in office and one of the things that I think everyone will agree on is the Biden administration has difficulty seeing things clearly and basically met baking making its decisions on the basis of principal. So without principled leadership in the White House, then it will be very, very difficult to encourage the Chinese government to tamp down its aggression vis--vis Taiwan and as I said before I think with this administration in place. This may indeed be the perfect time for the Chinese government to consider some fairly drastic measures with respect to Taiwan because it's doubtful that this ministration is capable of a sustained push back and this administration continues to send signals to the Chinese government that we are prepared to surrender and we've done this in an Afghanistan, $80 billion worth of military assets and so I think at the end of the day.

Many individuals in the Biden administration. They are prepared to look the other way. The other point that I would make is that many if not most of the officials in the Biden ministration have already been co-opted by China before they join the Biden ministration. They have received funding they have received grants. Some of the academics have taught at universities and these universities are funded or certain programs are funded by the Chinese government. China has been working on its strategy for the last 20 or 30 years and the United States has basically been asleep while I think it goes to show you that these issues are far more complicated than politics, military action, see what happens but were on top of it now before it becomes a crisis for the country.

So I want people understand that part of our engagement has to be in the policy arena and that's another part of the ACL take a special permit. A special status on Afghanistan that is on the pullout on how we got in there what it's meant. You've interviewed some of the leading expert.

It's a tremendous piece to be putting in the marketplace that you put together.

I know that's becoming out in a lot of different formats but that's all very important important part of the ACLJ that's right. Now the new series will be launching very soon will tell you more information about that as we can ossify, cut into documentary of sickness" around some of the top leaders not just ACLJ amazing ACLJ voices but from people from all over from Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft Tulsa Gabbert, who wrapped up with yesterday so a lot of perspective on the entire war on terror not be coming soon from us at ACLJ and ACLJ felt the challenges facing Americans as time went on freedom and sword constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice ACLJ on the frontline protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success. But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms, and that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you.

A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.

Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free and powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in what Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question free copy mission life today online/phone calls at one 800 684 31 to 684-3110 that were joined by special guest skip as a senior counselor. The ACLJ's new blog ACL ACLJ that are called attempting to bring the international criminal court into compliance with international law. Some of the incredible content we post on our website.

I continually felt somewhat stiff with this because I this is something that is interesting article about what I read the title that were attempting to bring international criminal court into compliance with international law skip after the senior counselor PA shall be in charge of international law and step on that point.

I think it worked going right into it. We don't think they are in compliance with their own jurisdictions. Amendments are not the creator created international criminal court is called the Rome statute and the Rome statute contain some provisions that clearly by customer violate customary international law and every state is bound by customer international law. So what we're attempting to do is to go in the point that out to them one more time, but we done this multiple times before, but to point out one more time with the an in-depth analysis of why violates international law and then try to encourage them to bring to make those changes that are required to bring the treaty into compliance with international law, which would free up all the criticism from third states nonparty states. The treaty that have objections to what the court is doing and is trying to do since We had been battling the ICC in various ways and also participate with the ICC and other ways over decades now is really good in US interesting regarding Afghanistan.

Unfortunately there even though we went to court and the court suggested the prosecutor could I jurisdictions, the ultimate by the new posterior agreements that we have other things we gotta deal with in Afghanistan, not the United States. So perseverance doesn't work later. The court came into operation at 2002's were coming up the 20th anniversary of the court and you as you said we been over there to meet prosecutor to couple of times we have submitted documents at and you've argued both at the appellate level and weight submitted documents at the pretrial level and so we are actively pursuing cases in the international criminal court as an NGO is a nongovernmental organization because we are nongovernmental organization the European Center for Law and Justice.

We have we have the ability to do such things, and they receive what we what we submit now where were pushing in areas a lot of countries are pushing but but we're trying to make this court actually a court that would be effective hominids goals are wonderful it would be effective, and accord that would operate within lawful jurisdictional limits, which it does not do now because of the points were making is exactly why the United States West is not a member of the international criminal court and I think is a former soldier both you and skip from United States Army with distinction by the thought of being part of the court would be yes Eric were absolutely in the battles that we are fighting to make the point that we are not subject to them because were not part of the Rome statute is very very important. Like so many bureaucracies that are part of the larger United Nations. It tends to be biased.

It is not always fair and objective, especially when it comes. For example, to Israel and skips article points out some some great points of why were not a part of this court and not part of the Rome statute. One of the things I go back to discuss And that is that this is former over there.

December 2019, we actually appear before the appellate chamber. It's not it's not a system where you should without a fair way to put it in a very different system. It is they claim is not politicized, but you can clearly tell it is.

There were people there were taking aim at the United States government all sorts of things that were sort of ancillary to the issues being argued, you know you were there, you were right on point. And yet many of the other attorneys that were presenting were talking about all sorts of things I would like to see. It should be this way to be that way. Not what the law is.

And, courts normally should be deciding and interpreting what the law says and then applying what's happening here is that most of the people involved in the international criminal court want to stretch this law as far as possible to make it universally applicable which it currently is not one third of the nations of the world, representing two thirds of the population of the world are not members of the Rome statute, and that includes three permanent members of the Security Council. So, this court has a long way to go before it's considered legitimate by a good part of the world. So Harry got international and national coursework international projects without the court exceeded its jurisdiction and lack of I would say, understanding priorities, although I think it's getting a little better. That is certainly a huge, huge problem, it is clear beyond question that the United States is on nonparty state to this particular treaty so if this were a law school exam and someone tried to suggest that the ICC has jurisdiction on the United States that answer would deserve a failing grade, and yet the ICC itself continues to fail elementary logic and procedure so they have no jurisdiction.

They will not have any jurisdiction unless we join, but I think at the end of the day. This is another example of elites who believe that they know best, many elites, for instance, they want to abolish something called Borders international law that protects the sovereignty they basically are pushing us further and further down the road toward a one world government, and they are smart to start with so-called Western democracies because if they can gain control over Western democracies, either through the UN or the ICC, then the rest of the world will be compelled to follow so I think this is a long-term goal, a long-term strategy by the ICC, but I also believe that we do not have an administration that is prepared to resist these trends strongly. One of things I wanted sort of not doing this with overstatement, but I would say that as an organization we are one of the most active NGO nongovernment organization at the international criminal court ordered one of the most active with respect to trying to ensure that the court stays within its lawful limits. There a lot of them over there that are bringing up all sorts of issues seminary some especially the use of the human rights organizations that everything they say is I is a crime every every wrong is a crime and so we're the ones there and intact were one of the few that have pushback we be without one of the first ones to submit an amicus brief to the court and we when we got this last situation were dealing with the whole situation Palestine whether Palestine was a state when the Palestinians after weight submitted, everything came out with other statements that contradicted their previous statements. We submitted another amicus brief appointed out of the court of the court shut us down. They did want to hear and they wouldn't let it be entered towards is still locked on their website.

By the way, I know that we said when I talk about that we bother to read exactly what happened, but that would really really is and and what were trying to do now is that we contacted now 19 foreign ministers of countries that are member states of the ICC of the Rome statute and what we are asking in the letter that subpart of the blog for asking is that they consider intervening to help us to get this the Rome statute back where it should be so that it's lawful under international law and the we can't do it ourselves.

Whereas a nongovernmental organization, we can't make these suggestions directly, but we can encourage states to do so. Nicely done.

We've identified friendly people that we consider be friendly foreign ministers and we've asked them to make these arguments when they do or not remains to be seen because the meeting doesn't occur till December, but were in there trying to encourage them and answer any questions they may have precisely 5%.

The regulator team on all of that because it's really important what we do and who we are and I need also say thank you all the people that skip workforce with and by the way you're ready to go to a break when they called unless I met say thank you.

You're on the air, called for America to pay all the what that means that we are in jeopardy losing all of our property and becoming like their that's a great question and the fact of the matter is they could call it that. All day and on all day and all night.

But Harry, the fact of the matter is they had no real enforcement mechanism must be clear worded training partner for them.

They can't their economy is very dependent on the United States as well. So we got we got leverage and we got bargaining power that is true, but I would not underestimate the Chinese government's commitment to its own hegemony and its own power. So I think you are absolutely correct in the short run, China would pay a huge cost if indeed it called the United States on its debt. But I also think the United China is not above using the fact that it is a huge creditor to the United States as leverage and so I think at the end of the day it's very very possible that China will make us more and more dependent upon Chinese creditors and they may insist that the debt be collateralized by which I mean that there would be physical assets which would support additional purchases of US government bonds. So keep in mind it's what I said no way said that when I can give you any collateralized debt with US assets were just a little bit that that's what the deal. Well I think we could certainly move down that road that was clearly a possibility, but I also think that the Chinese government might calm off important supplies to the American people all life-saving drugs that are being manufactured. For instance, in China, so I think yes we could try that and I also think that if that strategy were to be played out. I would hope that we would have a President more like President Traub as opposed to Pres. Biden, and I think that is probably our Achilles heel that we have a President who is increasingly known for one thing's commitment to weakness in the face of consequences so that we got this whole debt ceiling discussion going on right now in Washington we know the Chinese by a lot of our debt to Jamie for now. The Chinese still need the United States more than we need them in the goal here is to keep it that way.

And honestly I think a lot of that discussion goes back to what Rick was talking about earlier that that we need to adjust domestic policies we can bring some of that supply chain home right now J the United States Congress and the administration is doing the exact opposite. They want to spend another $5 trillion, which then directly impacts the amount they were gonna need to borrow said that we really need to sell more debt to the Chinese. I think they currently hold about 1.2 trillion of our about $29 trillion in debt and that will need to happen.

By the middle of this month. J a lot of what's happening in Washington DC now this is not to surprise you. A lot of this is drama. There is there is an ability for Democrats in the United States Senate to raise the debt ceiling on their own right now is the reconciliation process that they're trying to do use a tinted to pass the spending they can use that to raise the debt ceiling. They don't want to do that for exactly the reason that Harry was suggesting they would then own it politically.

So they're trying to bring Republicans into the room for that half the equation to try to get their votes to help them raise the debt ceiling. I may be J. Think about this if your dear Republican Sen. and you've been pushed out of the room on this $5 trillion in spending that you don't want to spend. Are you then going to in turn provide your vote for raising the debt ceiling that that spending requires. They're not going to do that the Democratic and have to find a way to do it. Interesting though J this afternoon to get a peek into whether or not they'll use that reconciliation process available to them. Or maybe will they start changing the filibuster rules of the United States Senate President yeah Job while they might not right now that you're exactly right.

Let me play that right now for everybody. This is a reporter's question and the President's response about the debt ceiling in the filibuster.

Here we go with all depends if they get the vote of Joe mansion Kirsten sent. I mean look. I personally don't want my political advice and I think they would be making a big mistake here because what it would mean the submitted happen later this afternoon there is going to be a procedural vote to proceed to raising the debt ceiling.

It's but it's expected to fail. And at that point they could use what they take on the Senate J the nuclear option they could try to change, not the rules of the Senate, but the President of the Senate and say were going to raise the debt ceiling with only 50 votes and the tie-breaking vote of, Harrison supposed to take 60 votes day. But what happens if they try to change the President of the United States Senate and Joe mansion and Kiersten Cinema won't provide their votes. As of now they say that they won't provide their votes. J.

That would be yet another legislative defeat for Pres. Biden and they be right back to square one square one is using the reconciliation process to raise the debt ceiling for the spending that they want to do. J if they were asking me for advice I would tell them to just go ahead and pay the political penalty that your spending has already triggered use the reconciliation process will know about 3 o'clock today though J and you like if you Joe mansion. I don't know how you vote for for changing the filibuster rules which you opposed and increasing the debt ceiling would you say you oppose similar couplets as quickly take a phone call. Let's go to Todd. I like to talk about for long time, so make sure he got to about China Tiger I will thank you. I would read an article about Carl.

I don't member's name should China invade Taiwan instead of getting into a conflict we should leave the other nations and condemning them and then also we the other nation been heavily sanctioning China's economy to the point of crippling them and this could potentially set them back decades and becoming a superpower which is their goal.

I was wondering which of course direction. I think Wessler superpower regularly. Yeah, exactly. Plus you know they have so much leverage financially in the rest of the world. I doubt that the world would get around to do that I will sit this one thing as it relates to Taiwan. The China's idea of defeating America does not involve fighting World War III. Rather, it is counting on the United States imploding on itself, financially and politically, so that in time like the former Soviet Union.

We will not have the will or the resources to be a superpower in China is banking on that. That's how they intend to replace us is the world's only remaining superpower, all right. We have just about one minute left. I want to say I thank you to all of you who've watched and listened today.
