"Castro's Cuban revolution was just a year old Jose Martinez, a pilot with a national airline, found himself in a strange position. Martinez was secretly working for the CIA and was chosen to fly Fidel's brother, Raul Castro. Back from a trip to Europe. Martinez shared this with the CIA's man in Havana American William Murray, who told CIA headquarters According to CIA documents. The response was swift. Tell the pilot to arrange a quote accident to remove Raul Castro, then Cuba's military leader, It was ah plot of opportunism that fell into the CIA's lap. That's Peter Corn Blue. He's with the National Security Archive, a private research group. Now. Time was short. Murray and Martinez discussed options during a car ride to the Havana airport as the pilot prepared to fly the Europe. This was what Murray called an emergency meeting. He only had one opportunity to convey the mission. Martinez raised the possibility of crashing into the Atlantic Ocean. Knowing this would be suicidal. He actually said if I die, will you make sure that my two sons have their college education paid for? The CIA agreed to pay Is Martinez with wheels up in Havana. It wasn't clear what he might do. And shortly after he left CIA headquarter sent updated instructions to the Havana station. Drop the matter. That was problematic. There was now no way to contact the pilot. Let's pause here to note that half baked CIA plots to kill the Castros are well documented part of the larger anti communist crusade at the time. Lillian Gara is head of Cuban studies at the University of Florida. It's like a combination of extreme American paternalism, combined with racism and disdain and contempt for Latin Americans, and so that drives their inability to see things Peter Corn. Blue has researched these schemes for decades when I casually asked how his day was going, he said. I woke up at five o'clock in the morning dreaming of CIA assassination plots and Cuba 1976 Senate report made a brief, tantalizing reference to this first CIA attempt to kill either Castro. But the details were redacted. Then one month ago as Raul Castro prepared to retire corn blue returned to a massive archive of declassified government documents. And found the full story Very few people are aware of the details of this incredible plot against pro Castro really applied that deserves to be known in its entirety. Which brings us back to the pilot, Jose Martinez. So what did he do? Ultimately, he delivered Raul Castro back to Cuba Safe and sound. In a few months later, Martinez defected to the US Surely after this aborted effort, the CIA began work on a much larger operation that also didn't go as planned.

"With a more humiliating punishment. Castro paraded them on television. Creating a a spectacle. He offered to return the prisoners to the us in exchange for five hundred tractors. Eventually they were returned for medical supplies. The bay of pigs invasion was an embarrassing farce and an unequivocal disaster. The cia and cuban. Exiles chastised kennedy for not sending in the us military to help in all likelihood. Kennedy's inaction was out of fear of soviet retaliation as it was the bay of pigs invasion was doomed from the start. It was predicated on the mistaken. Belief that castro's regime was weak and only needed a nudge to collapse. The cia had been woefully misinformed. As for castro he came out of the bay of pigs invasion not only unscathed but greatly strengthened the cia an american government had inadvertently injected the castro regime with steroids. By the american goliath castro's prestige and power were enhanced became even more of a legendary hero. Now no one could touch him. Unfortunately this wouldn't be the last time.

"Are counted that despite such enthusiasm castro had a slight problem. Batista was going around saying that castro was dead. That wouldn't do castro new appearances. Were everything sympathizers would give up hope revolution. If they thought he was dead but if he could show he was still fighting and project confidence in victory he would inspire others to join his cause and also make batista look like a fool so in february nineteen fifty seven castro drafted the first manifesto from the sierra maestra the manifesto urged cubans to fight the regime and disrupt the economy by attacking sugar cane farms putting his money where his mouth was castro range to have his own. Family's plantation burned to the ground coinciding with the publication of the manifesto a reporter from the new york times. Miraculously snuck his way past. Batista's patrols and made it to castro. Castro always want to recognize the importance of propaganda leapt at the opportunity to speak to the press when the times article was published. The regime naturally refused to believe it saying it was all lies. But then a photograph showing castro with the american journalist was also published proving. That castro was very much alive and so was his revolution. You know one two punch with teesta looked like a fool. While castro was hailed a hero still batista had bigger problems than castro with virtually no popular support much of batista's power rested on the back of the us. So when a group of naval officers in san diego's staged a revolt unrelated to castro's revolution. But he employed american military planes to bomb the city killing hundreds of innocent civilians. American generals praised batista. But the us state department was horrified soon. There was a feeling among government officials. That perhaps it was time for batista to go while batista struggle to keep his head above water. Castro was gaining steam. his guerrilla army. The twenty sixth of july movement was growing and they were finally gaining. Some real victories including the capture of the elevator. Garrison in late may much of castro. Success relied on his ability to win over cuba's poor his army redistributed land and livestock after driving out large landowners in the territory. The rebels took over in eastern cuba. He ordered hospitals clinics and schools to be built. But that didn't mean. The revolutionaries hands were free of blood. When castro's inner circle discovered that a local man had accepted a bribe to lead the guerrillas into an ambush. Castro sentenced the man to death according to some reports. Jay personally shot the man in the head. The move was reckless and wasn't isolated. Though castro is making real headway many of batista's proponents remain suspicious of him. He had a reputation for being boorish and having sudden outbursts of anger his companions were seen as immature boys in order to win. Over these moderates castro released a second manifesto in which he made a series of liberal promises among the promises were free elections and land. Redistribution in which landowners would be fairly compensated. The second manifesto managed to put moderates at ease but before any of his promises could be fulfilled. Castro still had to defeat but army and that was no small task in may nineteen fifty eight and annoyed. Batista launched operation fin female or end of fidel. Roughly ten thousand soldiers were tasked to hunt down around five hundred rebels within a month. The army had castro hemmed into around a few square miles and nearly out of food and ammunition. But even now castro refused to back down instead. He launched small-scale ambushes. And quick retreats into the jungle the epitome of guerrilla warfare and highly effective and castro's men also had a few other unexpected advantages. Though there fo- may have seemed insurmountable. There were in fact serious. Cracks in the batista army two thirds were raw recruits with low morale constant guerrilla. Fighting convinced them that the rebel force was far larger than it actually was even worse the. Us finally abandoned batista. Congress was now controlled by a left leaning democratic majority and they were unwilling to ignore the atrocities committed by batista. They pulled out all of the states military aid leaving. The cuban cardio dangerously is elated by august fin day. Fidel had imploded with morale and discipline extinguished the army that had assembled to crush castro simply packed up and walked home. The whirlwind momentum shift was now firmly with the rebels in late december chain and three hundred men captured. Santa clara a large city. In the center of cuba batista's men were so dispirited. That around twenty five hundred soldiers surrendered from then on more of batista. Soldiers would simply lay down their arms rather than fight. They didn't see the point of fighting for a leader who is rapidly falling from grace. Fidel castro could taste the victory. He was less than two hundred miles from the capital of havana and with soldiers waving the white flag. It seemed as if he could easily waltz right in waltz. Right in castro. Did a fear stricken batista's saw the writing was on the wall and refused to wait for the rebels to arrive so on january first. Nineteen fifty. Nine batista resigned as leader of cuba. The next morning he climbed aboard an airplane and flew to the dominican republic in exile. Of course before he left it was revealed that batista's government had embezzled or appropriated over four hundred million dollars worth of cuba's gold and dollar reserves leaving the treasury with some twenty million dollars but that was a problem for another day while batista's spent the beginning of nineteen fifty-nine fleeing for his life. Fidel castro was celebrating with his closest companions and allies among those sipping champagne with him was american actor. Errol flynn by january third. The dust had settled in. The revolution was officially victorious in a speech before two hundred thousand spectators in santiago castro proclaimed the revolution begins now for the first time the republic will really be entirely free but cuba's new leader didn't realize he had one more fo- to face the united states of america coming up the us attempts to overthrow castro at the bay of pigs.

"Writing. The cia could never figure out how to enact. The plot getting the castro was always the problem then. They discovered soon be in new york city to visit the united nations. The began mulling over. Thallium salts a deadly substance once houston rat poisons. They didn't necessarily want him to ingest it once exposed to his skin to force castro's iconic beard to fall out as though he were sampson and his facial hair gave him his powers. The cia plan to spread the thallium shoes and nightstand at a new york city hotel but the trip was cancelled. There was another idea to construct fountain pen with a deadly tip that one got as far as being given to a cia. Contact named rolando kabila that same day in nineteen sixty three john f. kennedy was assassinated and cuba lost his nerve. The cia looked at castro's habits. He liked to go diving so a scuba suit and breathing apparatus contaminated with tuberculosis and deadly fungus was signed. The cia believed that could offer. The scuba suit has a gift to castro. When negotiating for the release of prisoners in the bay of pigs aftermath when that proved difficult the cia started looking into exploding seashells if the could find one so spectacular so beautiful that castro would have to pick it up then it never happened but the i did eventually find someone to get close enough to castro to expose into the sea as chemical ingenuity. They recruited a woman name. Marita lorenz a lover of castro's who intended to slip poison into his drink. She hid the poison container of cold cream but had trouble fishing it out which made castro suspicious. Castro began questioning her and then handed her a gun to use instead. He told her that no one could kill him and while he wasn't wrong years after the fact a cia agent who kept one of the botulinum toxin cigars brought out of storage to test. Its remaining potency was still lethal even to touch but what god leave. The i learned was that it didn't matter how dangerous weapon was. He didn't have the right person for the job. Maybe all they were missing was george white. A happy and healthy. Castro busied himself allowing the soviet union to build nuclear testing sites in cuba leading to a standoff between the us and russia the flirted with war in one thousand. Nine hundred one. He accused the united states of sabotaging cuba's crops and introducing dengue fever to its population claiming it was biological warfare. He went on to rattle the nerves of eleven. Us presidents reigning for nearly fifty years before old age began to mimic the effects of the cis plans speeches became less coherent. He passed away in two thousand sixteen of what one assumes were natural causes during his life. Casher was not only aware of the cis foiled plots he was by them. He ordered a havana museum to create exhibits. About the failed attempts there cubans could visit and get a tour of the c. i. As inability to eliminate their target. Castro thought they were over six hundred attempts on his life. Roughly thirty by the cia in a nineteen seventy five senate investigation. The cia swore it only been five or six no matter how many.

In fact, only one day in March of 2019 did they not have 2.4 million passengers. Air travelers cleared so they've come back some, but they're still a long ways.

"Surgery Castro do you think that vote I mean you you probably know some of these people. So, do you think that that vote is going to happen before the election Do you think it will happen in the lame duck session if there if so happens that we have a new president what do you think is going to happen with this vote I mean This already has turned into You know the most political process that we could have imagined mostly because it's another example of the hypocrisy of Mitch McConnell and these Republicans. Because everybody remembers last time what they said Barack Obama pointed Merrick Garland during that during two thousand sixteen few months before the election I think it was about two hundred and forty days before the election. From. Mitch McConnell the Ted Cruz to any number of Republican senators said, no no. No you can't do that. When we have an election coming up in just a few months, we should wait for the American people to have their say in that election and then let that president that's elected. Make the nomination because of that they held up Mark Merrick Garland. Basically ripped off seat from President Obama. Now. They've completely changed her tune and they wanNA give trump his nominee and not only that they wanna do it ace APP. It's total hypocrisy hypocrisy. Of the system. Yeah. I, mean it's an abuse of the system under a constitution it's playing games but here's the thing. The problem is we got all of these politics. We got them playing games abusing the system and the stakes are. One week after the election on November tenth. The Supreme Court. Is GonNa hear the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act? I whether it's constitutional and they're going to rule on that in June. Tens of millions of people could lose their health insurance because these folks WanNa, stack the deck. To do right wing things and they're doing it with such hypocrisy. It's amazing and I'm I'm happy that. That the Democrats are pushing back as hard as they can on this because I think he would be the wrong thing to do and if. They continue to abuse the system like this. Then I agree with some people that have called for structural reforms to make sure that this doesn't happen again it's well, it's first of all I re listened to the Mitch McConnell clip where he was like basically like Merrick garland there will be no vote on Merrick garland because he made this like impassioned speech about why it was inappropriate. And it's I mean my blood boil because he's such a great actor and I think that's what's really frustrating is he's in the wrong profession. He really should use those skills to get an Oscar you know what? I mean and not to ruin democracy. So I really think Mitch McConnell has been misguided just in his life choices in that way. Lou, what do you feel is is GonNa Happen I'm really hurt that you guys are really ragging on my boy Mitch. Upright. I. WAS ALWAYS HONEST I've never seen him do things for his own purposes. I mean I I've never seen it. I've read it. and I've heard it and I look away because. He's so that it looks like is. I I think it's I mean he is who he is and. I think like he really showed exactly I. Mean I think everyone knew he was going to go through with it I. Don't think anyone was like a will maybe help know everyone was just like, yeah. Because especially, a huge focus of has has been just. Flooding the judiciary with conservative. ideologues I mean. He's been doing that in the circuit courts Yeah. That's been a huge focus. And that impacts. So much of what's going on like having that impact in the Supreme Court. Will. Say One thing he's no dummy. Like he has a plan. And then the other frustrating thing Lou is not only that he's dummy but also you know he's within his constitutional rights, right? Like they're nowhere does it say in the Constitution that you can't? have another. Vote. So the question WanNa ask. Is the question on everybody's mind, which is court packing. How possible. So let's say I. Mean. So many things have to go a certain direction for quarterbacking to even be a question and but let's say they do. You know someone they bring on someone. WHO's there's the leading figures Amy Barrett what's her name oh? My God I'm blanking on her name and I did not write it down. But the leading person that they're one of the leading person on the pack to become justice a Supreme Court is amy conybeare there it is amy conybeare it and. They. You know she's really conservative. She said some things you know anti row. Say, the Supreme Court doesn't factor become a six to three leading conservative court. Let's Biden wins the election. Let's say the Senate is controlled by Democrats. Let's say we can pack the court. Secretary Cash. You think that's a good idea. We'll look I've said that I think for a lot of us. That wasn't our first preference, right? But that issue is that Mitch McConnell now has abused. This system under the constitution. With flagrant hypocrisy and that the stakes because of that abuse, the stakes are the tens of millions of people may lose their healthcare that. A women may long no longer have reproductive freedom in this country. That the voting, Rights Act will likely get eviscerated. When those are the stakes and those are the stakes because of an abuse of the system. Then yeah. I think the Democrats should consider how you ameliorate.

"My journey as a songwriter. I think it's been kind of difficult to be honest in songs you know and to take something from your bedroom more from voice note to really recording it and putting it out into the world so. I know how tough it can be to be a songwriter. Then you also learned that there isn't much to learn you just have to speak from the heart. You have to be honest with yourself in your riding. My sound is so many things it's arm be at the core but it's so many other things and you know I. It's definitely emotional sometimes. It's electric sometimes warm. I don't know if it's just one thing. It's it's everything what makes a great song a great melody. You know something. That's unforgettable and unforgettable melody and I think the truth you know something that you know everybody has has felt or gone through or can relate to. I think those things make a great sal. I feel really hard when I hear a song that reminds me of a moment or memory or that reminds me of something. I feel most of like the purple rain album. Made me feel so much you know Dangelo. Those are some of my favorites Alicia keys of Lauryn hill songs in the key of life. All those albums or like my favorite these albums play over and over again. It never gets old and I always feel like I don't know what it is. That feeling is when you hear a great song but I get it from all those albums. Songwriters are so important you know. They don't get enough recognition. But you know for a lot of artists. They make the art senior. They make they make a lot of people. Feel something and you would never know that. It's the person writing like I feel like a lot of songwriters. Artists have written so many songs in and you see them walking down the street and you would never think like he wrote you. Know wrecking ball or songs that we we've known our whole lives. They don't get enough recognition. The experience of being at saw land is much more special because people get to see behind the scenes of what happens in writing sessions. It's like you're literally watching a writing session happen. And that's very rare. You know that doesn't just happen. People don't get to sit in on sessions people writing hit songs. The energy here is is so free. And it's so fun and it's like there aren't any rules but to just make a great song that's really why being here. I love Ester she's so dope she's created so many hits. Somebody songs that I still play. That are still in my playlist.

National is one of my favorite places to right and he has so much of that Nashville him. That just makes me so anxious to get in the studio with him. He's just so warm in his writing is incredible like he has written so many songs that I love and I know he knows about storytelling like he's really about storytelling.

Bernie in the lead because there is a substantial number of people who are disaffected from what's going on and nobody's listening to them in the mainstream but he's also in the lead because they don't have anyone to oppose them and that's what the debate was about last night. It was about the fact that they you know people say well if they would just if they would just clear the Middle Lane. They would just do this if they would just do that. Who Who Biden is so all the can't put an English sentence together. You know Bloomberg is really screwed himself warns plans don't work they don't have anybody to stand as someone who just steps out can stand up to Bernie Sanders. You're not it's drew. It's not that the country has gone socialist. It is that he's the only person who understands that he is speaking for those people who feel left out all right. So let's take a look at the debate.

She's the only person who actually ask tough questions of everybody. I want to start deepen the debate where she finally got around somebody. Finally I mean if Brennan hadn't been there nobody would have done this. I don't think finally got around to asking Bernie. About the fact that he has sucked up the every communist iron in the world and has now been caught praising. Castro not caught we did on sixty minutes praising Castro this murderous tyrant for his literacy program when he's going into his you know there's a swing state Florida where a lot of those people know exactly. Castro is an art impressed. This cut number twenty. You've praised the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that?

During Castro's searle hundreds of thousands of Cubans fled the country generally settling just across the Florida Straits in Miami.

I can't wait to hear it. Actually I don't think I've ever heard any French words with a Spanish Accent while you're here. We go great excited. Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz was born on August thirteenth. Nineteen twenty six near beat on in in Cuba's eastern Oriente province. So he was the third of six children. I'm he had two brothers Rahul and Roman all of whom you may have heard and three sisters Angela Augustina. I don't know it. They're spelled like that. No I love your like Angela. uh-huh from the Chicago so his father's name was on hell. He was a wealthy sugar plantation. Asian owner who did most of his business with the American owned United Fruit Company. His mother had been a made to unhealth first wife time of Fidel's birth uh-huh scandal And by the time Fidel was fifteen. His father dissolved his first marriage with his first wife and was in married his mother at age. Seventeen Fidel was formally recognized by his father took that long for his father to be like yes. This is my son and his name was his. Last name was changed from ruse to Castro. So Fidel grew up in wealthy circumstances actually among amid the poverty of Cuba and he was educated in private Jesuit boarding schools. I'm from an early age. Castro showed he was intellectually gifted but was also a little bit of a troublemaker. I'm he was often more interested in sports than studies He attended Clay Hill the lawless in Santiago Cuba and then L. Klay. He'll the Belen in Havana where he was a pitcher for the school's baseball team and he also played basketball and ran track. I'm so how we've talked about like what if Stalin had stayed on whether man academy like what if Hitler had been accepted art school. And there's a similar legend that Castro was scouted by or tried out as a pitcher for the Washington senators in the nineteen forties Mike but was rejected. However there is no actual evidence that he ever had a tryout with Eddie American baseball so later on people tried to use this rumor to attribute Castro's anti-americanism to his bitter disappointment? Failing at a baseball tryout is that seems to be an urban legend but think about the alternate universe where Hitler was an incredible famous artists. Like ooh I haven't had had eight off Hitler in my house. I wonder how much it's worth or like the most famous weather man in Russia. Joe's Uncle Joe Stalin on and Fidel Castro. The the starting pitcher for the senators. He was so cut one. Three world series is up just turned everything around for the real real real alternate timeline. Yeah for sure crazy alternate time line just thought experiment so after Castro graduated from college. wjr Or Klay Hyo as they say in late nineteen forty five. He entered law school at the University of Vienna and he became immersed in the climate of Cuban nationalism. I'm into you. Imperialism and socialism by nineteen eighty-seven cashiered become increasingly passionate about social justice and he traveled to the Dominican Republic to join an expedition attempting to overthrow of the country's dictator Rafael Trujillo. Although the coup failed before it got started the incident still kept Castro's passion for reform alive and he traveled to Bogota Talk Columbia the following year to participate in the anti-government rioting that was their Castro also joined the Partido or tobacco an anticommunist political party founded to reform government in Cuba. It's founder Cuban presidential candidate Eduardo. Sheba's lost the nineteen forty eight election but inspired Castro to become like a big disciple of his He pledged to expose the government's corruption and warned the people about General Fu hence you'll Batista who is plotting a return to power He was the president from nineteen forty. Forty two nineteen forty four in Cuba however she bosses efforts were cut short. After his supposed- allies refused to provide evidence of government wrongdoing and in August nineteen fifty one one Sheba's who did a weekly radio broadcast. He shot himself on Air W-WHAT's trauma. Oh my God I thank God it was radio and TV so this was like Castro's like friend and his mentor. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. So in. Nineteen forty eight years prior to two she. Boss's demise cash remarried Mutai Diaz Balart who is from a wealthy political family in Cuba. They had one child also named Fidel. They nickname him. Missile delicto meaning little Fidel in nineteen. Forty nine so the marriage showed Castro wealthier lifestyle and gave him improved political connections around the same time he developed developed interest in the work of Karl Marx. Hey and became intent on running for a seat in the Cuban Congress in March nineteen fifty to a coup led by General Full Hensel Batista successfully overthrew. The government in the upcoming election was cancelled leaving astro without a legitimate political platform and little income with which to support his family. So Batista's back in office. He set himself up as dictator and solidified his power with the military in Cuba's economic elite and the AD is government recognized by at the United States so cash oh and fellow members of the Party. To- Orthodox organized a group that they called the movement and they planned an insurrection. Oh on July twenty six nineteen fifty-three Castro and about one hundred fifty. Supporters attacked the Moncada military barracks outside of Saint Jago to Cuba in an attempt to overthrow. Throw Batista the attack failed and Casher was captured and tried and convicted and sentenced to fifteen years in prison and his brother Rahul was also among those imprison but while incarcerated Castro got his group together he renamed his group the Twenty Sixth of July movement and they continued to coordinate their activities through correspondence respondents in while in prison he and his fellow prisoners were ultimately released in nineteen fifty five under an amnesty deal with the Batista government and he traveled with reinhold Mexico where they continued can you to plan the revolution around the time his wife Michelle left him and like jetted the hell out of there and went to Spain. What about feed the League? I think they left there was still in Cuba assuming fidel had some family members they pro but his wife she empty right off so cashiers in Mexico. He met with other Cuban exiles as well as the Argentinian rebel Ernest Stowe Che Guevara. Hey who believed that. The plate of Latin America's poor could be fixed only through violent revolution curly so Guevarra join castres group and became an important confidante and helped to shape Castro's astros political beliefs on December second nineteen fifty-six. Castro returned to Cuba aboard the boat. Granma I'm sorry. Yeah like Alah Ella. Grandma Grandma G. R. A. N. M. A. is the name of the boat. They run He had about eighty insurgents with them and they had a bunch of weapons and they were near. The eastern city have Manzanillo Batista's forces this who they were attacking Batista's forces killed or captured most of their attackers but Castro as well as his brother Rahul who CHECA Vara and a handful of others were able to escape into the Sierra May Straw mountain range along the island's southern coast so over the next two years Castro's steadily readily growing forces waged a guerrilla war against the Batista Government. My God so they were pouring out of the mountainous jungle. Yeah like yeah attacking their guys. They're on the grandma. They tact group but teases group killed most of them and and then the guys that live like hidden in the woods and manage to like gather support because they were like this was bad where yeah so they so so they basically spend the next two years like growing forces and they organized resistance groups in cities and small towns across Cuba. Cashew was also able to organize is apparently well government. He's able to carry out agrarian reform and controlled provinces with agricultural and manufactured production. While hiding out. So it's kind of like the Cosa Nostra like he was kind of running like a parallel like system. Like a protectorate system in a way Hey So enough people didn't like Batista then they were like well. The guy in the woods is while we've got some good ideas. The guy in the woods has some great ideas so beginning in Nineteen fifty-eight Castro. His forces mounted a series of successful military campaigns to capture and hold key areas throughout Cuba. I'm so combined. With a loss of popular support and massive desertions in his military Batista's government finally collapsed. Under Castro's efforts in January nineteen fifty nine Batista himself fled to the Dominican Republic. So at the age of thirty two. What Astra successfully concluded his guerrilla campaign to take control of Cuba man? What have I been been doing? It really makes you so. According to Encyclopedia Britannica cash was celebrated as a hero for toppling Batista's authoritarian Tehran regime. Okay Yeah Ed Sullivan. The host of America's. TV's most popular really big variety. She flew to Cuba to tape an interview with Castro on January Eleventh Nineteen fifty-nine where surrounded by about one hundred armed men Ed Sullivan talked with Castro. whom he likened to George Washington he called cash show a fine young man which were the same adjectives he also had used to describe Elvis Presley And later that day in Havana Castro taped an appearance for the team. News program face the nation and he also talked with a few other famous. Talk show host and newscaster so Castro. who had yet to declare himself a Marxist said that he thought the American people were quote? Nice Oh oh thanks so he he did all the stuff and he kinda authoritarian regime and everyone was like great job may are young guy. Hi Great Job. Oh boy so here we go. Provisional government was quickly created then with Manuel Unwell installed as president and Jose Meteo Cardona as prime minister and that quickly gained the recognition of the United States and cash show himself arrived in Havana to cheering. Crowds and assume the post of commander in chief of the military in February nineteen fifty-nine mirrow suddenly resigned and Castro was then sworn in as Cuba's Cuba's prime minister and meanwhile hundreds of members of Batista's government were tried and executed so Castro implemented far reaching reforms by nationalizing factories and plantations -tations in an attempt to end. US economic dominance on the island among these reforms it was announced that the new government would based compensation to foreign companies on low property values that the companies. He's had negotiated with the previous Cuban governments in order to keep their taxes low so basically like the American factories came in there. Like what super cheap to build here. So they said well. You're not going to actually make a lot of money off of that because you bought that property for super cheap like trying to trick us. So American companies ended up feeling the negative effects of these measures ocean that led to a significant strain in relations between Cuba and the US. During this time Castro repeatedly denied being a communist but too many Americans has policies closely resembled the Soviet style control of both the economy and government in April nineteen fifty-nine Castro and a delegation visited the US as guests of the National Press Club Cash show hired a public relations firm to help promote his tour but at the time president. Dwight Eisenhower refused. He used a meeting with him in. May that year cash assigned the First Agrarian Reform Act which limited the size of land holdings and forbade foreign property ownership. Oh so even if you have if you were a foreign Foreign country that owned property on Cuba like nope not anymore. Wow yes yeah. So on that surface the intent was to develop a class of independent farmers but in reality that program led to St Louis in control with farmers becoming government. Employees sure. Yeah Yeah and by the end of Nineteen fifty-nine Castro's revolution had become radicalized with purges of military and government leaders including the president who Toria and the suppression of medical of any media. Critical of Castro's policies his government also began establishing relations with the Soviet the Union horse the. US are sent more than one hundred Spanish.

You know that I do a little ice-breaking rounds and it is a rapid response round. Are you ready ready ready okay. The first one misses the just a preference question Latino or green tea Hi Hate Green tea so okay Breakfast potatoes are grits breakfast potatoes. Lattes get him out.

We are watching watching for a negative bringing you in living color or martin in living color launched so many people's career so many people's careers so much talent on the stage. Okay this might be easy. When Atlanta or Savannah you would think this would be easy right then is very charming so but Atlanta Lanta because it has it has it all down almost kicked us both after that all right greatest rapper of all time? The puck rediscover some big events out here real pissed off okay And now I WANNA do word association word that comes to mind with Andrew Gaze thousand dollars free. That's three words but I'm GonNa go with that. You are on message. Melania trump quiet is investors democratic primaries fractured Stacey Abrams okay. Dreamers aspiring Joaquin Castro. Aw Good Looking Guy Guy Guy looks good. Even with that Beard Day knows my next Kosei Astros beard. You trending today. If you haven't noticed all right my last one is reproductive rights and access. Everybody needs okay. You made it through. The okay walks. News is already trying served on okay so one of the things I WANNA get into. We talked on the democratic the primary and rapid round. What right what Democratic candidates right now are you the closest person I've had Good conversations with Really mostly with three people with Gory both went to Stanford Stanford grads here. Angry reciting With Kamala. We've talked on the phone. A couple times was any every time with each other and then with Elizabeth Warren Ohio so I probably talked to warn the most but really what those three and had a good relationship relationships have a good relationship with everybody. I mean they're sixteen other people in right now but those are the people that I've talked about. And when you think about aww candidates in the field right now that you disagree with the most whom you disagree with the most not personally on policy like I don't see there's Too lex light between our physicians probably different for the issues. Obviously on the debate stage made clear by disagreements with Vice President Present Biden on immigration and on healthcare I've also expressed disagreement with Mayor Buddha judge on something so just different for you know I think did Andrew. Yang's approach is a clever approach has some recommended but I don't agree with saying that you're just GonNa get a thousand dollars but we're going to take away any kind of other programs that people can access. Because I don't think so you know there are things that I agree with and things I disagree with that folks said since you brought up Vice President Biden You had a moment to debatable. And I'm interested to hear your broker remember it. I remember it. I wasn't questioning your recollection Speaking of what happened is the Betas challenge on. You remembered winning just two minutes when you think about that vomited there anything about it that you know I know but they were suggesting but in the moment when you're up they're debating responding very quickly and what I was responding to was that he denied that he said That people some people would have to buy hi into his plan and so that was kind of my reflexive response. You know it's interesting to me that if my response had been you know somebody else on that stage aged to corey or Tacoma Lord anybody. I don't think that the media would have run when dat in the same way and I wasn't intending to make the claim that the media went with. But what I saw that night was the what happens when a narrative takes hole and then it just it just goes fire and so I mean it in fact to me one of the interesting things was that whether it was the rude or another a number of other minority publications journalists of color actually gave that moment or more full rendering right but the MSNBC's the world CNN's of the world The New York Times and so forth. There was one narrative in and said I had attacked on his age which that was not letting so so then would you say you're not in just of course you have made it very clear the whole time right. I think it's not your age each necessarily and it's not even your experience necessarily it is the most important thing I really think somebody's judgment. Somebody can be eighty eighty years old and have great judgment and wisdom. Somebody can be forty years old and APP great judgement and from voters. I think it's about identifying edifying. What is the judgment that people have shown? And that's what the whole process is about getting out if I were just you know when I vote. Vote for somebody right. That's what I WANNA know. Like what is their judgment in. What is their vision for the future? When you think about the fact that we're sitting here Orlando? There is another debate. Small It's when Tyler Perry studios you didn't follow by which has to be immensely frustrating of the place a supreme value on the voice and the most of people's on your Atlanta. And I I do want to give you just the moment if you've had an opening statement tomorrow could you give that opening statements in ninety seconds. I would say that That this election is all about the future of our country and how we're going in a move from a president who has tried his hardest to divide us to one who's GonNa try and unite us from the president that wants.

I was abandoned by my father and later by mother. My grandma raised me. According to interviews with Ariel Castro he was raised with very little adult supervision he claimed to have been subjected to sexual abuse at the hands ends of another boy and nine year old family friend when he was just five years old years later when asked about his abuse in why he never spoke spoke to anyone about it he confessed in an eerily prophetic way stating people who are abused keep quiet so I did two years after leaving Puerto Rico Lillian sent for her four children and in one thousand nine hundred sixty six at six years old aerial move to the united it states almost as soon as they arrived. Lillian started verbally and physically abusing her kids daily using her open hand belts and even sticks to discipline them aerial once told a psychiatrist that he would often ask God for her to die however however during his abuse area would come to find comfort in music one fateful Christmas areas uncle Julio Castro or sexy he came to visit the family with presence for his nephews he gifted aerial little guitar and areas love for music blossomed he he would regularly entertain the Castros at family gatherings and it was evident to his uncle.

Nilda fell for aerial right away and the Figueroa family family was delighted that she had found someone kind to take care of her. Their relationship moved quickly and Nilda soon got pregnant. She gave birth birth to their first child aerial. Anthony Castro junior in September of Nineteen eighty-one according to Nilda sister alita Ariel treated Nilda well he was real good to her that this would only last for a little while it was shortly after becoming a father at twenty one that Ariel started exhibiting controlling and irrationally possessive behavior towards Nilda he he frequently demanded that she bring their infant son to a club where Ariel played nightly gigs so that he could show him off if she refused brutality Carlotti would follow one of the first times aerial attacked. Nilda was during a simple disagreement. Nilda later described this initial abuse abuse saying he just punched me in the face and grabbed me by the head and threw me back against the concrete floor the second time. He punched me so hard that he broke my nose. Nilda was terrified of what Ariel might do next if she told even or close family about how he'd beaten her in order to cover up any traces of her injuries she became skilled at using makeup to conceal black eyes and bruises she would even even wrap her face tightly in a scarf in an attempt to obscure the damage aerial had done to her the night before when Nilda got pregnant for the second time in Nineteen eighty-two with their daughter Angie his rage grew one time when Nilda was slow to clean up the kitchen due to morning sickness. S. aerial punched her in the mouth knocking out her two front teeth before Ariel would allow Nilda to be taken to the hospital title for treatment. He demanded that she promised not to report his abuse on. This was aerials routine. No matter how severe the injury after one particularly violent attack when NILDA was required to get forty stitches for a head wound aerial still refuse to let her seek treatment until she froude never to say a word Nilda would later explain. That's the only way he would let me into the hospital. He wanted me to die that that day he wanted me to bleed to death eventually doctors at Grace Hospital where Nilda frequently sought treatment had grown familiar. You're with Nilda and her injuries. It became clear that she was the victim of domestic violence however without her consent they could not report the abuse to authorities their hands were tied even when the couple moved to nil this father's home to save money aerials brutal temper didn't subside aside his violence against Nilda continued to build reaching dangerous proportions. Nilda routinely rushed herself to the emergency room. I shattered rib broken nose or multiple serious concussions in nineteen eighty eight. Nilda gave birth to their third child.

"Julian Castro. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks for having me been well. I enjoyed reading the book in you spend about half of it talking about your early life. In fact, you open by recounting your grandmother's journey to this country. She has this quintessential American immigrant story. Tell us a little about her. I, I grew up with my mother and my grandmother. After my parents split up when my brother walking and I were eight and my grandmother Victoria had come to the United States in nineteen twenty two as a seven year old orphan along with her younger sister, their parents had passed away and their nearest relatives lived in San Antonio, and so they were brought across through eagle, pass, Texas a border town and ended up on the west side of San Antonio, and you know, she'd lost her parents and a few years later. She actually lost. Also, the woman who is who was there in the household of one of the relatives that brought her in. She was pulled out of school before she had finished alimentary school. So she had a very, very difficult early life in the United States. She never got a formal education. So she worked as a maid, a cook and a babysitter, and she ended up raising my mother as a single parent, and then. My mother was able to graduate from high school and then go on to college and work hard so that my brother and I could have the opportunity that we've had. So it really is this story about struggle and challenges and one generation handing the baton to the next generation. You know, my grandmother, she never owned a house, never owned a car. She never even had a Bank account, but she was able to see her daughter graduate from college, and you know, become. More successful and then see her grandchildren get into Stanford University and go to college. And so in in many ways, she lived her own American dream. And in some ways she didn't, but she was able to hand off to my mother and then to us all of the fruits of our labor if I have this right. I believe that she and also I think your father came to America because they were escaping the violence from the Mexican civil wars that, right my father's family got here a little bit earlier. Okay..

"I have received is a form of indoctrination which tells the castro side of the story and amidst all the other perspectives so it'll be interesting to see fifteen years from now let's say ten fifteen years from now be very very interesting to see what these younger people actually do and whether in fact all of this required a affirmation of the great triumph of the reformation brought on by fidel through his revolution whether whether that will change pedro for you go back and forth from florida to cuba quite a bit what are what are you here especially from young people and are there expectations different you think that that could lead in a different direction for cuba yes yes their expectations are different and and and i do i mean i was listening to patrick and that resonated that folks are very much worried about wallet issues and and younger folks in particular and younger folks also are very much focused on undetected spics you know this thing the ability to access the internet and so forth and i think the push and i think the challenge for will is to make sure that he he steps in line with the expectations of the younger folks and one of the things that is very peculiar about goo accu just goes back to the inventiveness issue is that notwithstanding the absolute government control over the media and so forth cubans find a way to find out what the heck's going on and there's something called packet they which is basically have these flash drives with news programs and movies and information and people trade data and sell it and circulated and so forth so it is absolutely astonishing to me and i've seen this in have anna and i've seen it in out of the way places like seeing foibles which is a smaller city up the coast that people are very very aware of what the heck's going on now all that you need to take with.
