12:02 am
nancy pelosi to taipei, which kicked off earlier with her meeting high ranking. taiwanese officials, including the deputy elect, a slit, a speaker and president. he has some of the latest footage shaped by chinese media . 21 chinese war planes passed through. ty, one's a defense identification zone, and according to beijing, military sources, schools will include non nuclear mc muscle known to us on the see east of the island territory. that include live, fire exercises and coordination between warships and fi to aircraft. ty, ones, islands, i'll say to have been put on full combat alert. as chinese media is flooded by footage of alleged military preparations, china had already worn washington of serious consequences of the us because it, china will definitely take all necessary measures to resolutely safeguarded sovereignty and territorial integrity and response to the us speakers visit. all
12:03 am
the consequences arising there from must be born by the us side and the taiwan independence separatist forces. ah, he has a good look at once. what constitutes china anti ones military resources? ty pays total at to forces on just a fraction of what stands behind beijing. the number of chinese aircraft navy ships and tanks also well supports as tie ones, military forces. while top us officials claim washington is sticking by,
12:04 am
it's one china policy. nancy pelosi meets the president of tie one and gets a reward from her order of the piteous cloud for her contribution to us. tie one relations earlier. pelosi pledged both cooperation and full support for taiwanese authorities during the meeting and parliament. we want to increase, enter your parliamentary cooperation and dialogue and we do so at a time when our president has put forth an asian pacific initiative, which we support. and we want to be specific in terms of how we work with taiwan in that regard. clearly it's a publication of china and if you are talking about cooperation in the atmosphere, that's here at the moment of confrontation, military compensation, you're talking about building up the american presence or support of taiwan, which is basically an aircraft carrier for the united states. and it's foreign
12:05 am
policy, so visit, i'm sure, despite the controversy over who in the white house supported a woman, miracle ministration, who didn't, must have the okay from president biden and from others. so it's a publication of china and it's part of the whole process that has been laid out in the madrid summit declaration of data to contain. china could have been to continue the publications of china. and of course, russia as well. the 2 countries being joined together because most represent opposition and a poll of attraction in the world to the united states. this is the moment nancy pelosi arrived at function airport and i pay the flight tracking sight, flight rate of $24.00. the come said the number of people following her jet,
12:06 am
which is almost 3000000, a reco figure for the service. the us house speaker said her visit is evidence of the u. s. commitment to support taiwanese democracy. the lucy has become the highest ranking american official to visit the self world island in 25 years. the white house, meanwhile, has stated that a dialogue between washington and basing will be kept open and that the u. s. won't be involved in any military conflict with china. the united states will not and does not will not seek and does not want a crisis. we are prepared to manage wellbeing to chooses to do. at the same time, we will not engage in saber rattling. we will continue to operate in the seas in the skies of the western pacific. as we have done for decades, we will continue to support taiwan. defend a free and open indo pacific and seek to maintain communication with beijing. since
12:07 am
it's switched recognition from ty paid to basing, washington has held an ambivalent position on china and ty, one, it officially acknowledges beijing is the only legitimate government for the whole of china, including ty, one in line with the one china policy. and whether this has not prevented us from entailing unofficial relations with, ty, pay and sending military aid to the island. china now accuses the us of stirring trouble in the region. the open political provocation has aroused the fury of the chinese people and is opposed by the whole international community. this again proves that some us politicians have become the troublemakers of china. us relations and the u. s. has become the number one savage or of the peace and stability of the taiwan strait one china policy has been a definitive aspect to us china relations for the past 40 year. but today's visit by nancy pelosi seems to put all of that on the brink of destruction. the one china policy is that the united states acknowledges the people's republic of china as the
12:08 am
one chinese government on the mainland. it does not have diplomatic relations with the government on time one, then an advocate, taiwan being peaceably re integrated with the mainland into one giant. now it appears that despite the fact that nancy pelosi has gone to taiwan, the white house and john kirby and others that us state department are maintaining that the one china policy does in fact, remain intact with us. they are not backing away from that. however, we're seeing signals to the contrary, a lot of action by the united states and the lead up to today's big that i have indicated that you as the one china policy may be on the brink of being revoked. this is what we heard from a representative of the american institute in taiwan observing recent trends, the united states no longer sees taiwan is a problem in our relations with china. we see it as an opportunity to advance our shared vision for a free and open in the pacific and also as
12:09 am
a beacon to people's around the world who aspire for a more just safe, prosperous and democratic world. now you, as the visuals insist they are not wavering on the issue of taiwan. however, it doesn't help when you have the president of united states making remarks like this. are you willing to get involved militarily to defend taiwan? if it comes to that? yes, you are. that's a commitment we made. now we see last official giving mixed signals almost as if they're not talking to each other before they make their statement or engage in their actions contradictory messages being sent by washington. the world is quite nervous about this, as they fear it could push things onto the brink of another. global crisis did see independent arms control and conflict consultant says that policies visit is an ill timed stage provocation. the idea of having a one china policy and then leaving it good and well alone. maintaining the
12:10 am
strategic ambiguity has been the backbone of us policy for decades, and it's largely work order and taiwan is prospered under that policy. so the idea that nancy pelosi somehow needs to go in and rectify a situation that's been working just fine, is bizarre. this was an unnecessary and thoughtless provocation based on the actions of someone who won't be the speaker of the house much longer at age. 82, even if the democrats managed to hold on to the house of representatives is november's election. if this is about her putting your footprints in the sands of history, it's remarkably the old time. i think it's extraordinary that we're seeing a distance thing of the us administration of the executive function in the u. s. to, with the legislative function is represented by speaker pelosi. i think it's, it's the same democratic party in the us controlling both bodies at the moment, although that may not last for much longer. but the fact that they're saying she's on her own, essentially, and she can do what she likes, is a total abrogation of the executive functions responsibility to make an execute
12:11 am
foreign policy. they're handing over the foreign policy on china and taiwan to the speaker of the house. of representatives, i expect biting to drop this like a rock as soon as she's back in the, in the us. he's going to try and forget about this as soon as people lead him. whether people do, let him forget about it is another question. again, my colleague will, is to say, discuss policies as a to tie one with a correspondent, rachel blevins. hello. she's finally touched down there. you know, even an, even in the face of all this rhetoric from china. hello, she apparently had to make her visit. what are your expectations now that she's here? you know, she released that statement right after she touched down in which she claim that she was there to support were she referred to as taiwan, the vibrant democracy. she also went as far as to say that she does not believe that she is in violation of the one china policy, which is absolutely not how beijing sees it is not what they have worn again and
12:12 am
again, when it came to the lead up to this proposed visit now it was also notable that she talked about democracy there because it makes you wonder how do the people of taiwan see this visit. and what we've heard is from people on the ground there who say they are concerned about the long term impacts of policies, visit that will play out and impacted them. long after she has returned to the united states, take listen to what was said, but it's all about mercury interest. they use taiwan, they, they use that your political mom measure to, to benefit themselves. they only care about how the government can be holding the power. it is in there in them states. so they just use tie one to get our attention for domestic market from good hello. see touch china's bottom line. she touched the red line. so both the u
12:13 am
. s. in china have to take actions accordingly. the only pelosi will benefit from the elusive visit that's all hello she's visit will attention to close the taiwan straits, which has no benefit at all for the taiwan people. i really hope that the americans will not come around to mess things up so that we can live at peaceful life in all of this. it's also been notable to see how the white house has responded to this, right. you get president biden to himself has admitted that the u. s. military did not think this trip was a good idea that they were concerned about the ways in which you would increase tensions between the us and china. exactly as we have seen. and then at the same time, you also had a secretary of state lincoln who spoke out and said that the decision was entirely up to nancy pelosi herself. and you think about all of the possible ramifications that could come out of this between the world's 2 largest economies. and yet you have the white house sitting there saying it is the speaker of the house who is allowed to make this decision. and to do something that would lead to the current tensions that we're seeing. and yet when we've looked back at the statements that
12:14 am
nancy, lucy, it's me and she's kind of shrugged it off and downplayed the situation to say the least. take a listen to what she said earlier, the president, earlier, well, earlier in his term talked about a strong emphasis on the asian pacific. he, he has visited there. as vice president visited, the secretary of commerce and others. and we want that congress of the united states to be part of that initiative. of course, as a west coast person, we see that pacific as they're, you know, that they're their home. we're part of that as well. so you can see there, she's almost shrugging it off as if it's no big deal. she's just going to see more of the pacific ocean. and yet we look at all of the ramping other engines that we're seeing between the u. s. and china right now that makes you wonder if she truly realizes the impact of this visit that let's take the politicians rhetoric out of the equation for now. rachel, what's the general view in america?
12:15 am
regarding this whole thing? yeah, there seem to be more questions than answers as to why policy is embarking on a trip like this, right, with everything that's going on in the u. s. right now with the american people who have repeatedly said that they're concerned about skyrocketing gas prices, about inflation. but all of the issues they have going on at home. they're wondering why the speaker of the house is making a trip like this and why she's costing the american taxpayers millions of dollars in security in order to make this possible. and that really is reflected in some of the voices that we're hearing speaking out now. questioning why now, why this trip and why is this something that blows embarked on? here's the latest on that. nothing good will come of it. taiwan will not be more secure or more prosperous as a result of this purely symbolic visit. and a lot of bad things could happen. these include a chinese military response that could result in the u. s. being plunged into in direct conflicts with nuclear armed russia and
12:16 am
a nuclear armed china at the same time. so nancy pelosi goes to ty, pay. what's the effect of that? well, we don't need to guess. the chinese government has said repeatedly and clearly that if nancy pelosi lands in taiwan, it could trigger a global war. are you here to provoke a war or to start a war? what the hell are you doing here? hello. see? so we've heard a reaction out of asia. we've heard a bit of muffled reaction out of washington d. c. what about the rest of the world? it's rather quiet at the moment. we have any other international reaction to that. yeah, you know, it was interesting because earlier this week when posey was in singapore, the premier, there actually said that the focus needed to be on maintaining stable relations between the united states and china. that that was something that was in all of their best interest in the region. at the same time, we've also heard from moscow a spokesperson for the kremlin, spoke out and referred to this trip as extremely provocative, noting that russia stands with china and also that moscow understands that
12:17 am
frustration that is coming from beijing when it comes to this visit in the fact that the united states has continued to carry out. so certainly a lot of moving parts here, a lot to keep an eye on, and these consequences will likely be felt long after this visit is over. you think is any chance that nancy pelosi could actually get stuck there? because in the coming days, i saw a picture of a map that would china basically publish and said, we're going to be doing these live fire drills on the west side of taiwan on the east side. if i wanted the north and south in the coming days, is it possible that pelosi could actually get stuck that? you know, that's an excellent question. at the same time, we've seen the u. s. military really focus on trying to build up some sort of buffer zone, but you're right. that is trying to is region that is right in their backyard. and so if they wanted to make it difficult, they arguably could. now the question is going to become what they decide to do, and of course, how the united states decides to react if the by an administration is really going to step in and ramp up tensions even more than what they already are at right now.
12:18 am
well let's discuss the latest developments of the region with jack rasmus economics professor at st. mary's college and so much for joining us. lucy earlier had a meeting with the people who speaker of ty, one's parliament, in which she said to look forward to increased to quote, parliamentarian cooperation between the 2 governments. what do you think she means by this? well, you know, i don't think this is just an individual visit by yes. hello. see here i, i think this is a, a well coordinated policy move of by the us here. you had ask yourself, what are the motivations both short term and long term domestic and foreign of this particular visit. there's several explanations. i think high and alyssa domestically is a, you know, if the u. s. provokes china, which is clearly trying to do. and china responds out there, you know, you got an issue here for passing the, a $85000000000.00 increase in the pentagon budget. invite his budget that ever
12:19 am
takes effect october 1st. you know, the u. s. already spent like 68000000 or so on ukraine, if you want to get another a 5000000000, then you've got to have an issue on the other side of the world too. so that could be one motivation or another motivation is it has, it has to have something to do with this pat bill, the semiconductor chip that all that just didn't pass by her us house pending in the senate. right now, are you know, by going to try one, which is a big producer of mass production, a semiconductor chips. i know she's going to have an opportunity to speak to these companies. i'm sure she will about, you know, maybe getting a piece of that. 76000000 action by moving some of the operations a to the united states here. so that's a possibility. another possibility is u. s. domestic politics. you know, the democrats don't have much to run on in the november elections domestically, inflation and so forth. are, are gone pretty poorly here. and so creating
12:20 am
a foreign policy issue, you know, just helps the ukraine is not the same kind of foreign policy issue. now, people don't, don't really see what the, what's in it for them. but, you know, if china responded and attack the, you know, the house of representatives, then that would be something personal. so this must have politics love with this. there may be also an attempt to embarrass gee, you know, he's coming up for a, you know, a 3rd term here. and he's got a look tough. and the more they put pressure on him and he doesn't look tougher, the more undermines him. and, you know, maybe even the u. s. the saying, you know, come on the g, i know you better back off, you support for russia. if you don't want to keep embarrassing you, i don't know that could be a possibility to. but one thing is certain long term that the u. s. has made a decision years ago probably around 2016 to long time ago after
12:21 am
russia and china to neutralize them before they became even more economic and militarily prom powerful. that was in iran report and democrat and republican party papers back in 2016. trump came in and upset that that whole apple cart and soon as brighton got back your boy, they started implementing that real quick. the u. s. got the hell out of a gander stand in a real quick and then immediately turned to ukraine. so, you know, the u. s. has this policy, i believe long term to weaken russia week in china, try to break the relationship between russia and china. and the provocations are going on with taiwan. this is not going to be the last. there's going to be more of this. but those are some of the possibilities, i think, long, short term, foreign and domestic. but of course the question remains, what actually is going to be china's response? because we saw a sneak of following the meeting, she had earlier with tie ones president way. she said to quote,
12:22 am
now more than yvette america's solidarity with taiwan is crucial. and she went on to say again, another quote, america's determination to preserve democracy here in time one is iron clad. so how do you think these cummings will be perceived by basing and how are they likely to respond? well, i don't know, the chinese just track record is that, you know, they're, they're not the full share. i don't think they're going to be provoked. you know, they have to do something, no, probably step of their activities and straight in some way. but i don't think they're going to take the bait and know they're going to be more provocations. a, you know, the trip also, i believe has something to do with the u. s. forging a broader nato like alliance in the pacific already of australia, new zealand, japan, those 4 countries young. she's making the store singapore, taiwan. i think they're feeling their way how much they can get these other
12:23 am
countries to join your alliance. but i don't think you're the answer your question explicitly. i don't think china is going to take the bait here. but all that means is we're going to see more provocations on the road. at the same time, though pelosi did say before this visit, that her trip would be evidence of america's commitment to tie one's vibrant democracy. but then we heard john kirby saying in his briefing, that pelosi quote speak for herself with her comments about time one. so we don't seem to be getting unified message coming out of washington. are you surprised by this? and at the same time, do you expect biden, to try to coordinate a common message off to have a 10 look. it looks like vinyl has lost control foreign policy by saying he didn't think it was a good idea. or this is a classic hard cops off play by the united states. you know, by the same play soccer up here and closely over, deploy the hard top. this is us policy, i mean, you don't, you don't have the ro,
12:24 am
cabinet, people and politicians are running around and doing something like this. without it being coordinated, you know, throughout the whole regime. this is a plan coordinated moved by the united states to try to provoke china and even if it doesn't provoke china, it creates these issues for domestic and foreign policy that i just mentioned. jack rasmus economics professor at st. mary's coach. thank you very much for that insight. my pleasure. am at the turmoil of china has imposed sanctions against 2 taiwanese funds which beijing accuses of supporting separatism and the smear campaign against beijing. meanwhile, the ramifications of policies visit have already been felt in local financial markets. chaise fell in semiconductor manufacturers, anti one home to some of the biggest such companies in the world over or taiwanese stock stopped about 2 percent,
12:25 am
which is the biggest fall in 3 weeks. the controversial visits of the us. how speaker vote down the value of a number of industry giants. in addition, this stock for was not any fault anti one, but also with other global semiconductor manufacturers. tom longo, geopolitical and market analysts, and publisher of the gold goats and guns. a newsletter says that washington is deliberately provoking beijing as part of an economic pressure campaign. the visible philosophy is interesting because it just feels like so much theater to me and. but at the same time it is very serious. right. the chinese are vickie, very seriously. in the us knows exactly what it's doing in terms of provocation. this entire affair with policy is actually the giant boss to get the chinese to over commit or to overreact to the situation. so now we can start putting up a sanctions wall around china and the same way and that, that we put up or around russia, right? which is clearly, these are lead ups to a wider conflict. in many ways i want is
12:26 am
a single point of failure. closing strip to tie one appears not have received much the port in the waste media. and as a recent article by the new york times suggests the visit may plunge the us into in direct conflict. not only with russia, but now also with china. us officials are a lot more concerned about ukraine's leadership than they are letting on this ukraine. war is so not over, so not stable, so not without dangerous surprises that can pop out on any given day. given the middle of all this, we are going to risk a conflict with china over taiwan, provokes by an arbitrary and frivolous visit by the speaker of the house. all of this would be terribly funny if it wasn't so serious. this ends up being a diversion from the united states offered to support the war in ukraine. what is betrayed by friedman's article is the utter chaos. that is the biden
12:27 am
administration's foreign policy because they keep sending mix signals. they say they will back the one china policy. they don't recognize independence for taiwan. yet policies arrival and all of the other message that's going alliance suggests that so this conflict in washington, we're washington doesn't really know what it's doing anymore. it can't decide if it's supporting ukraine fully. or if it's in the back of their mind, what to support independence for taiwan. but they don't want to get into a conflict with china. it is, it is a confused hot mess. well that's it for the salary, for anybody can use pieces that our website had r t dot com. otherwise, i'll be back with the team with the latest news and around 30 minutes from now. thanks so much for joining us. the
