"It seems to be aimed not at never Trumpers, but not at the kinds of people necessarily who were baying for blood at the The base of the Hill of Congress just a month and a half ago. Well, I think one of the reason that this is I catching is that you know Al Jazeera until recently had a cable TV news channel for the U. S. Al Jazeera America. That first of all, I had a lot of resistance kind of getting picked up by seven cable systems around the country. So there was when they had a lot of difficulty getting interviews with certain you know, right leaning Figures Number two and number three. Ah, lot of the center of gravity of that channel didn't seem to be focused on conservatives. I mean, like their initial Sort of branding or outreach if I could call it that was based on, you know, kind of like the Guardian, which is we're going to report stories that the other media outlets aren't reporting like that kind of thing. If that makes sense, so it just seems like a surprised. Do you agree? Think it's baffling Al Jazeera America didn't work here for the reasons you described Al Jazeera. English still exists and has reporters around the country and a J. Plus his, you know, certainly got a decent footprint digitally. What they always promised was to hold the mirror up to America. In a way that corporate media in America was disinclined to do, perhaps because all of the fault of America were baked into American corporate structures, including its corporate media. This seems like it's in some ways some sort of rail politics played by doing something much more explicitly conservative, explicitly ideological foreign audience that may be extremely reluctant to absorb whatever they have to say, given the source of it, what you know to that end as an ideological play, you know, some journalists inside al Jazira wrote a letter to Management objecting to this new platform, saying it would tarnish the network's brand. And the letter also said that quote the media in the U. S is already polarized. That's a quote and that this new platform wouldn't be a solution, but rather a deepening of the problem. So what has been the reaction more broadly to this? Well, you know, I've talked to a few people inside Algerian. Some formalities here people and they are even more confounded than I am about it, You know, in part because it's explicitly ideological, in part because that ideology is is explicitly on the right. And in part because it's based on at least from the outset appears to be based on conversation and interviews rather than on reporting. You know, this appears to be really we don't know fully what form it will take. But at the moment to be done is conversation. You know, the podcast world has supplemented that enormously like I'm not sure what it is that there Value added will be which is not to say it couldn't be wonderful. You know, one of the things that people have been critical of Fox and other news outlets on the right for is for the contentious nature of its tone, and for its unwillingness to accept criticism or information that cuts against what they have to say. You know, we really haven't seen this outfit play out yet. We've got to give them a little bit of time to show. That they're able do something constructive and interesting here, but so far it does seem to be a puzzlement. So just a few months ago when President Trump didn't like how Fox News reported on his election, basically refusing to go along with his falsehoods, he very publicly and those around him. Started very publicly catering to This even more conservative one American news network and you can imagine some of the fraction of the audience. He's outlets are playing to getting narrower and narrower. Do you think that That's what's inevitable here. You know, look even before the Trump years, a senior Fox news executive said. To me Look at our best moments were getting 34 million viewers in prime time in our top rated shows, and that's you know, less than 2% of the nation. 1 1.5% of the country is watching. And yet it had an outsized influence on that to be successful in cable is too narrow cast its to identify a large, small, discernible audience. And to hold onto as much of it is possible. And I do think that the more entrance there are, the more it weakens. Fox is holding them or that the narrow cast becomes increasingly splintered. That was NPR's media correspondent. David Folkenflik. David, Thank you so much, You bet. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. Support.

"Little tip For those of you that keep looking for an alternative on social media or media in general, you want You want your conservative Voices to be heard. Well, I don't know how you're gonna feel about this one. But I kind of stumbled across. I haven't seen any promotion of any kind. But Al Jazeera America Is the hill is reporting they're launching a new conservative channel. Despite unopened letter from about 100 staff members. Who are not happy about it. Well. Yeah, they work for Al Jazeera, and they are media people, and I don't know when it comes to 100 100. For for a cable network. Well, when I started of Fox business we launched With 350 people. No, there were like eight of us on the air or 10 of us something like that. But the rest of writers producers On Ben. Of course we had Go mingle the Fox and Fox business stuff with floor director's camera operators, control room engineers audio all that I mean, there's takes a lot of people. So that I'm going well, 100 critical staff isn't That much. I don't know how big Al Jazeera is. Al Jazeera America. But anyway, Michael Weaver, senior vice president, business development at Al Jazeera says We're going ahead with rightly We believe in what we're doing in the company believes in what we're doing, It's our direction. He said he was deeply involved with the creation of the new digital platform, which launches today with his first show right now with Stephen Kent. The interview program will address according to Al Jazira, the issues animating right of center Americans today. So I don't know where they are. I don't they have to get Are they going to be online or do they have Table clearances and with cable Clarence is it takes a long time to go to all the different cable companies out there and say we would like you to, um Broadcast our cable our network. And The cable companies have to pay them so much for them s so it really comes down to where the they're going to get a lot of cable coverage or not. But as you would expect. It's editor in chief is a guy by the name of Scott Norville. He used to be. Fox News president. And he and Steven Tent. Um Working together. But they are that's called rightly is an umbrella brand under the sub brand of Al Jazeera, There will be a Syriza's shows and then a series of other hosts and potentially it will expand into other formats is being built organically. The idea is to get the first one out the door and make first ventures into this market. And point this put this point of view out there. I think this is smart. This is exactly What Roger Ailes did. He spotted there was a dearth of right voices. And so he teamed up with Rupert Murdoch and Creative Fox News. I don't know where this is going to go. Because you've got one American news and I know some of you like it or not. I'd find it to be very much well, I think it's like college. Level broadcasting. I'm not. I've checked out news, Max and I I think that's also They're not prime time players other than Greg Kelly. I really don't think so. They're pretty lightweight. My humble opinion. But they're getting an audience so good for them. The guy who owns him knows he's a good guy knows what he's doing. So I think right now with the shake up on the right, um, these Al Jazeera is gonna try to make a run like one America News and News Max has done against Fox. Um, boxes having good days and not good day, so we'll see how This competition works, but it's they are specifically. Looking to give a conservative slant to whatever the news of the day is. It sounds like they're starting with just One program, so I presume. It is going to be an online product. Which isn't that we're one America News is I think it is. I don't know. I don't know enough about one American news. I apologize. So, um Al Jazeera America. Look it up. So if you can find what they're doing with this show that they are launch. I don't have the time, it just says launched Thursday. Today's Thursday. And it's their first show, so they've got one show is not like launching 24 7 of programming, which is a lot Put together 24 7 of programming 24 hours. Of programming seven days a week. Is is a humongous effort, so This for those of you looking for something on the right. This is this is another alternative for you out there that maybe you can dig around with So we got that and like I said the job's report today. First time jobless claims 730,000 that was down over 100,000 from the previous week, but it's still massively high. There's over four million continuing jobless claims. S O. That number is still in need of improvement. That it did not help. On Wall Street today, not at all. One man COMMENT line band That's all we can afford Market today. Ouch!.

"You're listening to Dr Tom Razon live. It is Sunday in the nation's capital, and we're at that precipice. We're at that place where we have so much on our plate. We're trying to make a decision about what to do on so many different levels. You know, not only because we're being locked down and shut down and so forth, but And my opinion being lied to on so many different levels. It's like incredible. But my platform is your health and your well being. And the things that are being told you that can be extremely Yeah, well, but put it mildly and say misleading. You know, in the first half of the program, I told you that there's a lot of information that is not being put out publicly. You have to even go outside, You know, to take a look at something. Somebody asked me the other day. So you know what media is, like, Do I look at and listen to actually very few. Occasionally I'll listen to, you know, business news, but I usually check out what I want to online. Uh, I will go Tonto outside the country. Guess what? Guess what. I listen to Al Jazeera America. Why? Because they have a very different perspective. You're gonna hear things that are different. They're not. Yeah, I said that It was their interesting in the reporting process because it's pretty honest compared to some of the stuff that you're being exposed to and then addition to that I'll read the epic times and I try to get as much factual data as I possibly can. So we're gonna talk about that more about that, but, uh, the the endgame Right now, with this covert 19 vaccine is to get all of you to step up and they're not going to report the side effects and we said there are literally dozens of people that have already died from this thing and other reactions that are extremely significant. So buyer Beware. You need to do your homework You need to be, you know very, very much, Uh, diligent, if you will about you know all of those things. I want to go to the phones. Toc begin with. We have somebody that's been patient and holding. So we'll do that. And then we'll come right back. And Andy, how can I help you? Oh, well, thank you. Dr Richard. I want to follow all of your comments. Um, And if there's any way you could possibly put some length to some information that you trust on your website to be very helpful. But I am her from what you say when you said we have to do our due diligence before. Before we take the vaccine that it's impossible that we have Raymond. There's just no way we can get enough information. Really make an intelligent decision on whether or not to take the vaccine is that trajectory? It's a challenge, even for us as a challenge. I could go into different sites, and I put doctor's credentials in and I get other data. You know, I do a lot of publishing at my Facebook page, and that's the only thing that I put down. There's anything that's related to health care. The article that I just quoted earlier on from epic times is there right now you could go and just go toe are Thomas result. You don't have to friend me. You can just go in and take a look at it. It's open anybody that wants to see it, but what you do and how you have to go in and you have to dig deep into the archives. So you know if you put something up and you want to research it online Uh, there's a lot of misleading information on both sides, and that's what you really have to be careful about. But you have to begin to cherry, pick the information and then just follow the leads. It takes some time to do it. You know, I'm constantly in front of a computer trying to get data. See what makes sense What doesn't make sense. At the end of the day, you have to look at it and try to Set aside the emotional inflammatory reactions that have been put out there on both sides to try to get you to respond. And you know if they say, you know a briefing, you have to say by who? Um, if they say that this happened, you have to ask the question. When did it happen? How many times that It happened? And what is the you know what's the overall situation? No, they're trying to say right now. That about left. There's 11 points. I think it's one or 2% of serious reactions with this now, what do they call serious? That's the piece that you have to pick apart on every million and vaccinations that air that are out there. Well, you know, maybe And you know, compared to the regular flu, which is something that has a very, very, very low effectiveness rate anyway. But when you look at the research that's out there, you look at India where they Fizer did a lot of his original, uh, test trials. India threw them out. They won't let him back in the country because what they were fighting that women were becoming sterile from the vaccine permanently. And you know, now with the fighter vaccine and AstraZeneca and Madonna vaccine because there are in a attachments, RNA polymerase attachments they're telling you do not have. If you're in childbearing ages do not have Unprotected sex for at least 30 days up to 60 days prior to or after having excuse me after having the vaccine Excuse me, You know, guys begin will continue to produce sperm, You know, on an ongoing basis, women are are born with X number of eggs. And they don't get any more. So if this thing is genetically damaging women are in trouble, and that's what happened in India. They found that their women that were permanently sterilized because of their test runs their trials. Now that's a fact that you gotta dig. You can find it. It's there. Um, it's a challenge for all of us, including made trying to find the information. That is accurate and true, but you have to make sure that you don't What's the impatience in the office and they come in and say, You know, what do you think about the vaccine and I tell them when I smile, and I said, Look, here's the data. I am not going to have that You have to handcuff me and put into my arm. There's no way it's going to take place unless they do that. So, you know, be aware. Be careful. And I hope that helps you a little bit. Get ahold of me if you need to it, Dr. Tom yourself.

On the Bidens, and they've studied and rolled down deep on how the Bidens have milked their official capacity as daddy being vice president and part of the Obama administration. Milk. Taxpayers of money. Milk Chinese of money, Ukrainians of money and right now he's on Maria Bartiromo on fact. He was over the weekend, and he's talking about how The Bidens and Ah, a guy named Devin Archer. That's one of the partners and, of course, John Kerry's kid, but they got $4.2 million in their business dealings that that's just the tip of the iceberg. 4.2 million. Can you think of a way they could rationalize that that they could excuse that? How would they do that? I'd like to hear him try. But what Ah Senator Ron Johnson is talking about is a Joe Biden a straight up lied. He was interviewed on something called Axis, which is a straight of Communist organization. Almost like Al Jazeera America, But the bottom line is is that he lied. You just straight applied lie. I don't know anything about Elliot. Really? He was part of it. He made made. It wouldn't happen if it were not for Joe Biden. Nobody's calling him on it. A man Donald Trump, please. I'm yourself with some questions tomorrow night police and just throw him out there. Even Biden doesn't Ah, take debate. Let him hang there. The one the one risk Donald Trump runs is you can't make it look like he's trying to point out that Joe Biden is mentally adult. He is. But but it's it's fair game to put out there that Hey, you want to be president? Answer this question. How do you explain the fact that you have Ah, for example, all the houses and millions that you have when you're never in free markets free of our free enterprise system. You're totally a politician, all your life. Players of lunch bucket. Joe even had a real job. You've been living on the public trough and the bottom line. Is that your snout in it So long was enough 47 years 40 Niners and you have multiple houses huge as houses. And your kid has AH company with billions associated with how's that happened? Throw it out there. Now. You know, the bite is going to make a deal of Donald Trump. You haven't paid taxes. And what is it? Seven years? You're Ah, You've been Ah, fraud, But Trump could always come back with what? Well, no, I used existing tax law. To avoid paying taxes. That's how it goes, and I earned the money I avoided paying taxes on in the free market says them. People don't care that the the collective mind if you will, the straight up matrix. Ah! That is the progressive psychotic. They don't care that there's one of vilify Trump matter what Rush was all over that today. That's what's gonna happen. You watch tomorrow night, Joe Biden is going to defer to constantly trying to malign Donald Trump. Ah, accusatory, so he's never going to state any policy cogently. I've got 25 questions that he must be asked. He must be asked Before we go there. Michigan's Michigan allows ballot harvesting for more than four days now. Before I get into this peace. This is an expose by Joel Polly probably really know about this. Ah, somewhat. Ah, Leftist activist judge yet in Detroit has said that people can count ballots in Michigan 14 days after the official election day. Michigan Court decision. It will extend the deadline for postmark mail in ballots to be received up to 14 days after Election Day will also allow balance to be submitted by third parties. It's called Balan harvesting during that during a specific period. Ah! Michigan Court of Claims Judge Cynthia Stevens ruled that mail in ballots postmarked by November, 2nd the day before Election Day. We'll still be counted in them in Michigan 2020 election. This is absurd. Now before we're going further on this, Where is our Michigan Republican elected official dumb. Where are they? I mean name. Where is Tim Walberg? Where's what's his name up there? Ah, ah, the rest of that Another names. Thie other us Ah, House representatives. Why are they not screaming about this? Well, not might Just bullet is your district. It's your state. Why are they not screaming about this? Where they're not issued Some type of a statement? Ah unified statement on the part of the Republican House of Representatives members. Why have they not issued some kind of unified statement that this will not stand? We need to get this to the Michigan Supreme Court as soon as possible, And I'm not even picking on elected Republican officials in the State House. What have they done that and maybe they haven't? I missed it. I don't know. You think it to be somewhere where I trip over? I hit so many websites every day. Nothing. In addition, Judge Stephens She's an activist. She's not a judge. Said. The strangers can return other people's ballots. That's normally a felony. Between 501 P. M on Friday, October 38 p. M on November 3rd the moment that polling places they're supposed to close on Election day. How is this If that's normally a felony, why's it excusable now? Because some psychotic brought in a black robe Senate where our elected officials where are they? Why have they not called A Shut this bitch down? Why? Why? I don't know why. Stevens wrote the court and joins M C L Baba Baba by this election from 5 P.m.. Friday, October 30 until the close of the Poles November 3rd. So you walk up with a bunch of ballots that you found in the trunk of your car? Wink, wink nod, nod, and they have to count them. And they have to count balance for 14 days passed. So here's what we need to do. Here is the only way we shut this down because our elected officials are doing nothing. Nothing, sir. Keys doing nothing. I don't care what they say about they got some kind of a lawsuit Going there doing nothing.

"Your this question is advised. Nicole's Joe Questioning Authority daily. That could be the very reason why. Youtube is upset. Hey you do the music. Venue here beneath my voice is from a broadcast. Sound Library that I pay for and in Ham the receipt so I bet your copy right violation right here and now. Here's Nicole like that. Welcome to a Friday. Hi I'm so proud of us because we have made it to the end of another week. Most of US anyway and we are you know and this week was very similar to the week before which was very similar to the week before. Except when we see the numbers going up and we see the mad man at his you know to our commandeered infomercials. I don't know trying to rush things along while the the scientists are saying. Hold up buddy you know. Hold your horses as my mom used to say? We don't want to rush into anything because you open things up and we get a second wave. It's going to worse than the first so who knows what's going on. I think right now. What we need to do is take hold of. What's in our minds in our hearts and our souls and make sure where taken care of One of the casualties in this quarantine I really believe is not going to be evident for quite some time. And the casualty I'm talking about is our peace of mind We all to varying degrees struggle with some kind of mental health issues with me. It's depression has been for years with some people at the end. Zaidi some people you know. Everybody's got got our own ships and when we're stuck in a high stress situation the way we all. Are we all deal with it differently? One of the problems among many in our healthcare system is the lack of availability for good psychological help now thankfully the affordable care act made it so that mental health care was included in every insurance policy but since trump opened the door to these junk policies again you could be paying for insurance without those protections and not have no coverage or he could be like my kid. Who's you know? She turns twenty one in three weeks. Oh my God and this year bought her policy on the exchange which is way too expensive for what she gets high high deductible and copay and then premium cheap either and this is a kid a twenty year old with no medical problems but she wants to go see a therapist her copay per visit sixty five dollars. That's not affordable and that's just one of the major issues that we are going to need to deal with if and when we come out of this on the other side all right. I'm going to do things a little different today because we are so jam packed that I don't have time for a funny. I mean I guess I could but it means we'd be hitting Kelly Carlin a little later. Here's what we'll do perhaps at the end of this show We'll we'll we'll do an overtime progressive voices. Listeners won't get it but the podcast people will and people listening live. Well so we'll save the funny and the What's news for the end of the show? Today mobile fit it all in. We'll just run a little bit of over time If you listen to progress voices at five you'll get you'll get the meat of the program and the meat As I've been promoting for the week Kelly Carlin is GonNa join us at the tail end to do sort of a guided meditation. This is what she does. I mean she's got a issue was raised by her dad. George Carlin so she got the the comedy the sense of humor the irreverence. The you know the stuff that makes her like one of us and But she also studied for years and got her masters in Youngin psychology and takes very seriously and she does coaching sessions and she does seminars via zoom. We'll talk about all that but she's going to give her special assignment for today because we're all in this together so she's GonNa lead us on a guided meditation that hopefully you can use again and again. It's not just one time deal. Thankfully my show is not behind a paywall so you can share it. You can get it on Youtube. You can get it on the podcast however whatever works for you. Whatever floats your boat. Go for it but we're GONNA start with an interview that actually recorded a couple hours ago and we were recorded it mostly for logistic sake because alley they'll she and others at MSNBC and other news organizations are working pretty screwy Hours these days so he never knows when he's going to be on call there you know. Everything's all messed up so we figured we had a good chunk of time today at around noon so he hopped on skype from his home and I hopped on it from my home studio and we recorded this interview and the way it came about was just a little bit. I'm such a bitch sometimes on social media and I called out Allie for something and have long been a fan of his. I really do appreciate his work. And I think he's one of a very small handful of people at Msnbc who I truly truly respect and enjoy watching and listening to so. I felt badly when I sort of had a little tussle with him on twitter but He handled a beautifully and we became buds and we exchanged emails and I invited him on the show and well. Here's how it went joining me on the line. Now is Allie vel. She he somebody that well. We welcome into our homes all the time. I've become a big fan of Allie Bell. She's in fact. I started really following you. Allie when you joined Al Jazeera America because I was excited that for the first time in in in this era we had news channel. That was about news. It wasn't about one ideology over another the goal. There was to present news in an objective. Manner wasn't it. Yeah it was two goals. One is news in the absence of You know what we used to think of as news Being as objective as possible and we can discuss. What objectivity is because? I think we've learned over time that maybe it's not exactly what we think it is but that was one of the goals and the other goal that I thought was really important. I've been a journalist. Probably Twenty some odd years before I joined. Al Jazeera and we were really concentrated on telling stories from the perspective of the voiceless being voice for the voiceless and it occurred to me out while I had always thought about those things and I thought I was reporting about those things my life as journalist in New York City working for mainstream media. Don't expose mito whole lot of voiceless people as we go out of our way to find them. Even our most junior employees at a media organization are powerful right because they can call up anybody and tell them they're from the media So so I really. It caused me to get outside of a zone in which I had been operating. It wasn't a shift in ideology for me or the way I think about things but it really caused me to say. How do you tell stories from the perspective of the very people who don't have the voice whom you talk about whom analyze whom you characterize all the time and I have to say to call? That was a bigger challenge than I. A guy like me thought it was going to be I. I thought this was obvious right. I know who these voiceless people are. I know what their challenges are. What their lives are why didn't and and and it changed my perspective. It was. It was a remarkable experience for me for that reason and then has fortunately unfortunately. Is these things happen? Aljazeera didn't catch on here. I think it was more of a because I enjoyed watching them. I like the objectivity. I'm always looking for it because it helps me. Organize my thoughts so I can be more objective about what I cover and I'm deb. My show is not objective. News coverage it's opinion and commentary but always based in fact. That's gotta be the underlying basis otherwise it's worthless so I was. I was bummed when it went away and I wonder how much of that was Xenophobia was the fact that Al Jazeera was in Arabic network that was based in Qatar. Or an was that a big part of it. You know the other day somebody Tweeted me something that was meant to be criticism and said you know how that Aljazeera thing working for you and I I said Oh like did you watch it. They said no I never did. It was biased. So you've never watched anything on Al Jazeera America and he said no and I said would you mind looking for me and let me know what you thought was biased about that and that was the problem those people who watched even if they had political bias we had people watching us who were conservative or liberal but they felt that they could get the news And and those people who never did never didn't think so and part of that was that logo which was remarkable Arabic calligraphy. It was it was a competition. Somebody won many years ago to design the eldest logo which to the untrained eye including mine. Looks a whole lot lake Isis Lung? We don't we are not familiar with Arabic. Were certainly not familiar with Arabic calligraphy. And we're not familiar with Arabic anything right. In North American society there is car there is no chewing gum. There is no Soft drink Arabic to Americans for the last twenty. Five years has generally speaking associated with bad things. Terrorism al-Qaeda stuff like that and that was very difficult to overcome So I think that was a lot of. It's I don't think that people watched it an object to do it. I think the people who watch it actually came around to the idea. That was pretty good. We there are some people who would just never watch azan barriers would never carry. Yeah it's it's the it's the inbred bigotry. It's that institutional racism now you Allie vel. She have made no secret of your background. Your kenyan-born Muslim who grew up in Canada is now living and working here in the states and I'm guessing that you've gotten both you know. Kudos for that and some criticism because people are like that comes up every Every few weeks somebody will tweeted A as if it's criticism and like it's at my twitter bio I was actually just annoyed because for a long time. I was the most famous kenyan-born Muslim I knew until op showed up on the scene. I say tongue in cheek. I'm actually that guy. And he was never at any of the meetings so so yeah to me. I did grow up in a world. In which varied experience and diversity is of value and that can be from anywhere that could be economic where you are where you're from what you speak color. You are what gender you are what you identify with? So I've never ever ever thought of that as a negative right to me the list of stuff you are and let people make with it.

Moore's mother Deborah was at home in Alabama when she got the call seven o'clock in the morning and the phone rang Ryan and I thought well maybe somebody calling from school you know and I picked up the phone and I think it was some embassy or somewhere in London or something and he was like. Have you heard your son has been killed and I don't really think get Richard with me so I talked for a few minutes and she fakes it. He's dead he's dead. They say he's dead and I was in in so much shock or denial she fakes or you go into school today. Not might sure I'm going onto work. Get close at in the car and I got about probably ten or fifteen minutes. It's from here and I got at a stoplight. And all at once distress shirt a membrane Anada started screaming and screaming. No no no and just crying and crying. Deborah called me and told me the news that same morning. I was lying on a half inflated air mattress on the floor of my new apartment. I felt a surge of heat and my chest. My hand started to shake. My immediate reaction was to work. I put together a new story about Omar and then rushed to the airport. I just started a new job. That week is reporter for Al Jazeera America and I wanted to present the piece from the main studio in Washington. DC but my flight was canceled so our producer ended up reading my report on the air. In two thousand six Omar Emami twenty-three-year-old American born and bred in Alabama left his family and his friends who joined the Islamic holy war and Somalia. Because I never made it to D. C.. Three and a half years of my life were boiled down to four minutes of copy read by somebody else to the end. Mommy was resigned to his fate and unrepentant about his his calls determined not surrender as a journalist. I'd always prided myself on getting in with so called bad guys. Hit men and skinheads and Omar. I was good at withholding judgement allowing intimacy to develop between me and my subjects. So they would feel comfortable enough to reveal to me what they might not tell anyone else Omar. It had gone further. He'd become human to me in a way that made his death confusing. I felt the loss of him He wasn't a friend but he was a person. I'd spent years trying to understand. Still I knew he had done terrible things. nomo person. It will have done what he has done. There must be something else pushing him to to go to that place and joined a group show Bob. They are pure evil. MOLLICA Abdullah had lived through decades of war in Somalia and lost dozens of friends to terrorist terrorist attacks. He made the case against Omar in very plain terms. I mean do real true Islam is the only Allah knows about Paradise in Holland. And were you gonNa go and for him to say he was gonNA be Maurier and it's just fantasies that he had this just crazy easy. Just shows you how crazy was whole thing of fighting for religion or killing on behalf of God you know Scott in until you to kill people my effort to keep Omar talking I sometimes compartmentalized the details of the violence. He had done in the name of his faith. I promised myself that that I'd come back to those details when it was finally time to report them. Now that Omar is dead though. It all jumbled together in my mind. There's this this one recording of a phone call between Omar and me like the right to do Derek that person in the call. I'm asking Omar about an execution. He said he'd been a part of what other detail question that I have from my writing we described when you had when you had to execute that guy according to sharia law. It's excruciating listen to both for what he says and for the way. I keep up this facade. That what we're talking about is somehow normal. How did you did you do it with a knife? How did you do it exactly? Yeah like on like you slightest pettus throat like how does that. How does that work I? I'm not familiar with the law nor like how one would actually go about killing one so give me if you can. You can give me a little detail helpful. We make sure that your knife is fish today. That you don't put some guy threw some crazy pain and then Make sure that tied nicely. So that like you also don't have to worry about like around in like vein and what have you so if the guy.

"As we thought we would take a visit to a place that doesn't get a lot of visitors or at least it hadn't until the past few years, but increasingly of late more and more of the rest of the world was getting to take a look at just exactly what is down there. They believe this is Cuba. And this is the viewpoint that has put forward by an international journalist and author. David REO stow who has the Saint Martin's press publication, subtitled an American journalist under Castro's shadow, David. Thank you for joining us tonight. Thank you for having me. What made you decide that you would put together such a story about the the Cuba of twenty eighteen. You know, I think any any journalists that gets assigned Havana has has in the back of their mind. They're going to write this great book on Cuba one day. And so when I moved down there. I just kept a notebook kept several notebooks full of these random observations. But the idea that someday I would I would put it together it took about nine years, but but eventually I got to it, and and sort of cobbled together all these notes, and and sort of mishmash to bit of investigative reporting with my own personal memoir and. It sort of hope of creating a bit of a layman's approach to unraveling this enigma country. Was Ernest Hemingway looking over your shoulder. You know, there's a certain romanticism about that. Right. And I can't I can't deny that he and the Graham greens, and the others who kind of went down to Cuba with these rose tinted lenses about what the what the island is what the island could be informed. Some of the writing, you know, I think that's a big part of what is to Americans, and it is to the world this sense of this romance wrapped up in this fishermen in the seat type of mentality and cube is that in many ways, there's a lot more to it sort of an under belly that I hope to to expose a bit. All right. Let's look at the other side of the stereotype the the nineteen fifty line time capsule. The the sixty year time warp when everybody drives around from an ancient era. And and this sort of thing is that still true in twenty eighteen post Castro and post embargo. Whether it is in terms of. Cars sixty thousand they'd call. Classic cars are still rumbling across the island sort of the largest collection of these old behemoths anywhere in the world. Of course, that's the outside of the cars, and the inside you have you have Russian engines and Chinese spark plugs in cobbling baling wire and really just sort of a hodgepodge of things that there are anything, but the classic Ford and Chevy in kind of a microcosm in some ways or a metaphor for the the island itself in the near of of this sort of old mentality, you know, sort of the godfather to ask romance. And and you know, pre Fidel Castro Batista days of this sin city is that the sort of Las Vegas bordello in the Caribbean. And but on the inside we've seen obviously a lot has changed since then. But you know, these cars, you know, they still they still rumble. Cross the island. I mean, people I will say this the Cubans are among the most industrious people that I've ever encountered general stereotype, and would they be able to do to make these cars run? This is sort of how they've managed to survival years. They just sort of find a way to make it work. I was gonna say this country. There's a phrase that you will hear on occasion. Your car is totaled can't get parts. Well, obviously, obviously, the the whole population of automobile drivers in Cuba. Haven't had their vehicles totaled. So I'm having to assume that you quote can't get parts that they must be involved in makeshift parts. Yeah. You know, when I if you write a taxi down in Cuba, whenever you walk out of the car. I think Americans particularly New Yorkers have a tendency of just sorta slamming the door shut. And that is just the last thing any Cuban cabdriver wants 'cause they have to protect the vehicle's, and they have gotten parts, you know, you might smuggling parts from south Florida from Spain. In those little blue plastic wraps, and that that kind of meant to ward off sticky fingers of Cuban customs agents, but by and large these are these are ripped up and redone automobiles that that sort of cobbled together parts of many different many different vehicles. You might find olfactory carburetor within excuse me old farm Carberry of a tractor within. Nineteen fifty seven Plymouth, and the thing would work for maybe a couple of weeks, and then breakdown, and they'll just find something else to to to fill the gap. And it's kind of kind of the stereotype, I mean, if you own a car in Cuba, sort of a rite of passage is to be seen pushing the car along on the side of the street has it broken down. Just kind of what happens down there. What about the availability of and the price of gasoline and motor oil transmission fluid. This sort of thing. Actually, it's a it's a very good question. It's not all that dissimilar from what you might find out elsewhere in southern United States the gasoline in the divorce, particularly that that Cuba gets has for many years in subsidized by the Venezuelan. They sort of have this to and fro relationship in which Venezuela offers, Cuba, subsidize energy in exchange for doctors, medical services, and even security services. Which in some ways has propped up the Madeira administration there. So even as that country and Benadryl teeters on the brink of collapse and almost becoming a failed state. They still have managed to subsidize oil that they send to Cuba, albeit it has reduced years, but it sort of gives you a sense of that symbiotic relationship between the two countries. And then of course, we come to another stereotype the political stereotype. Pictures of Fidel everywhere billboards of Fidel speeches by Fidel, three four five hour speeches on the only TV and radio outlets available. Most of us would at this point say, well that stereotype can't still be truly he's gone and Nali is he gone, but brother, Raoul is gone, you're in the post Castro era, and yet there's still a communist government. So at this point. We realized that our stereotype probably isn't correct. But we're not really sure what is correct. Right. Well, you go down there and you'll still see you won't see advertisements like you see in states and many other countries. What you real see is a lot of billboards declaring the triumph of the revolution. And and murals of Che Guevara Kamera Fidel role, you know, these these sort of bearded revolutionaries and that sort of harken back to the glory of the Commons passed fifty nine revolution. Fidel had this penchant for being sort of this bombastic leader, whereas Raul was this sort of tactician at a little bit more a bit of a pragmatist, and so many historians sort of liking these two is the kind of like the perfect Ying and Yang dictatorship in which one person has sort of had grandiose larger than life personality on the others being role would would manage behind the scenes now while role is technically gone and handed over the presidency to fifty six year old technical. By the name of DS canal. He still is actually technically head of the communist party. You're not going to relinquish that until twenty twenty. And so, you know, while the day to day operations of the country still are being governed by the canal, the bigger questions about the direction of country, the move towards increased power the legislature and other big big questions that are there sort of looming in this post Castro era are still being overseen by rebel Castro. So while we're technically post racial presidency or not quite in a post Castro Cuba yet. That's that's really the big question today will Castro has died when Raul Castro dies. That's the real question. Are we gonna see this jockeying for power like we saw with the Soviet Union where the old oligarchs gave to the rise of Putin? Or are we going to see a move towards more empowered legislature, which there are signs on? So is there ever? The indication that you would see in Cuba after North Korea. The second hereditary communist monarchy was there ever in the end. Because after all you went from one Castro to another are there are there young Castro's around. They're like we used to talk about young Kennedy's in this country. In fact, I opened my book when I inadvertently had drinks with with rebel Castro's. Only son Alejandro Castro Castro Speen, and I had a sort of a long night drinking on inadvertently with with Alejandro it'll bar but only hundreds head of the head. But he's you overseas, basic counter, espionage and surveillance within the interior ministry and the armed forces. And he's growing in power when I met him. He wasn't the the figure that he is now, but he was since that role side when when he negotiated or student when he was in Panama shaking, President Obama's hand he negotiated with Ben Rhodes and in Geneva in Canada for that's related to the dictator, and many people think that he is still a guy that's kind of behind the scenes, it's will rule Cuba, at least in part from sort of. In the shadows. There. I think from Rowell's perspective, it was just too untenable to have the Kim type of dynasty that you you saw in in Korean so with deeds canal officially in the presidency. I would think that Alejandro has quite a bit of power behind pulling behind the scenes, although the levers of power are capricious, and sort of shrouded in secrecy in Cuba. But he's a man that I would keep your eye on interesting, and we will keep an eye on much here that we're talking about inasmuch as this is Cuba. And there it is ninety miles off our southern coast for the last better than half a century. A thorn in the side of this country before that a playground for mafia. Also, a variety of things that that Cuba was and as for what Cuba is and what Cuba will be. We'll pick the brain Sabur when we come back. About our guest, David Ariosto, again, he is an international journalist. He's worked for CNN NPR, Al Jazeera, America. Reuters and National Geographic and is now the executive producer of Jeeves zero media at the Eurasia group. He's written. This is Cuba published by St. Martin's press, subtitled an American journalist under Castro's shadow one eight six six five zero JIMBO back in a moment.

All right. Let's look at the other side of the stereotype the the nineteen Fifty-nine time capsule will be the sixty year time warp when everybody drives around yards from an aged era. And this sort of thing is that still true in twenty eighteen post Castro and post embargo when it is in terms of. The cars sixty thousand they call classic cars is still rumbling across the largest collection of these old. Anywhere in the world. Of course, that's the outside of the cars inside you have. You have Russian engines and Chinese spark plugs in cobbling baling wire and really just sort of a. Hodgepodge of of things that there are anything. But the classic Ford Shelvin kind of a microcosm serve some ways or a metaphor for the to the island itself in the veneer of of this old mentality. You know, so the godfather to esque romance, and then pre Fidel Castro Batista days of when it was in the city is the sort of Las Vegas board Delo in the Caribbean.

Goodell had this pension for being so this bombastic leader, whereas Raul was this sort of tactician out a little bit more of a pragmatist, and so many historians sort of liking these two is kind of like the perfect union Yang dictatorship in which one person sort of had that grandiose larger than life personality among the others being rule would manage behind the scenes now while role is technically gone and has handed over the presidency to fifty six year old technocrat by name of DS canal. He is actually technically head of the communist party, you're not going to relinquish that until twenty twenty. And so while the day to day operations of the country still are being governed by the canal, the bigger questions about the direction of country, the move towards increased power the legislature, another big big questions that are sort of looming in this post Castro era are still being overseen by Raul Castro and so while we're technically in the post Raoul presidency. We're not quite in a post Castro Cuba yet. That's that's really the big question. Fidel Castro has died when Raul Castro dies. That's the real question. Are we going to see this jockeying for power like we saw with the with the Soviet Union where the old oligarchs gave waste the rise of Ladimir Putin. Are we going to see a move towards more empowered legislature, which there are signs on? So is there ever indication that you would see? In Cuba after North Korea. The second hereditary communist monarchy was there ever any? Because after all you went from one Castro to another are there are there young Castro's around. They're like we used to talk about young Kennedy's in this country. Yard. I opened my book. Why inadvertently had drinks with with Raul Castro's only son Alejandro Castro Castro Speen, and I had a sort of a long night of drinking on inadvertently with with Alejandro in a bar, but only hunters head of the head. But he's he overseas basic counter, espionage and surveillance within the interior ministry and the armed forces. And he's growing in power when I met him. He wasn't the the figure that he is now, but he was since it roll side when when he negotiated a student when he was in Panama shaking, President Obama's hand you negotiate with Ben Rhodes and Geneva in Canada, that's related to the detente, and many people think that he is still a guy that's kind of behind the scenes it's will rule Cuba, at least in part from in. The shadows. There. I think from Rowell's perspective. It was just too untenable to have the Kim type of dynasty that you you saw in in Korean. So with canal officially in the presidency. I would think that Alejandro has quite a bit of power behind pulling behind the scenes, although the levers of power are capricious, and sort of shrouded in secrecy in Cuba. But he's a man that I would keep your eye on interesting, and we will keep an eye on much here that that we are talking about as much as this is Cuba. And there it is ninety miles off our southern coast for the last better than half a century. A thorn in the side of this country before that playground for mafia. So a variety of things that that Cuba was and as for what Cuba is and what Cuba will be. We'll pick the brain some more when we come back of our guest, David Ariosto, again, he is. Is an international journalist. He's worked for CNN NPR, Al Jazeera, America. Reuters and National Geographic and is now the executive producer of Jeeves zero media at the Eurasia group. He's written. This is Cuba published by St. Martin's press, subtitled an American journalist under Castro's shadow one eight six six five zero JIMBO back in a moment.
