"By the youth programs. The policies of of culture for the young people a whole variety of young programs for young people and cultural programs which go far beyond. What we do in this country. The guy is Walter Durante Walters Ramsey the New York Times reporter from the nineteen thirties who went to the Soviet Union and said he had seen the future and it works while ignoring the vast murder of kulaks in the Ukraine. So Bernie Sanders goes over to the Soviet Union in the mid eighties. When young people are being compelled to do things by the government. And he says it's almost over that just over there not like here in Vermont. Really? Evens offended Daniel Ortega, the dictator the dictator of Nicaragua. And he said that he was democratically elected leader. Which is why he was a military dictator Daniel Ortega when you refer to Daniel Ortega. Now, I may be wrong. But certainly not true of one of your colleagues, at least not you usually the phrase goes. Daniel Latigo Marxist leader, or a communist leader of Nicaragua's statement. I would question communist used left-wing. Nope. You've gone more than left wing. We have used Marxist Marxist. I believe I see the problem is I don't recollection. And then I I may be wrong on this is the word communist ruler of of Nicaragua. I don't think that would be Marxist. Annual take was elected president of Nicaragua in an election. Why don't we use the phrase Daniel Ortega, democratically elected, president of Nicaragua? That's because he was actually not elected the guy who preceded him was a guy named Somoza and Ortega was a member of the five person Huta of national reconstruction, and then he simply ceased power. So what what I mean? This is insane. This guy was a full-scale communist nutjob back in the nineteen eighties. And now we are taking him seriously because frankly, we've gotten rich off of capitalism, we've gotten rich off of free markets. We have the most prosperous country in the history of the world and Bernie Sanders can sit there and whine about its problems. And then say that he has the solution. The solution is that Marxism has never been fried. Now, he has shifted his the locus of Marxism from supposedly Nicaragua and Venezuela, and Cuba and the USSR. Now, he says he loves Norway, Sweden, and all of a Scandinavian social democracies. Now, he says he loves all those countries. He wasn't saying that back in the nineteen eighties. The fact is most of those countries have actually moved away from the left over the last couple of decades in terms of their tax rates and regulations, and it's also worth. Noting that those countries do not have the robust economy. That powers the entire world that the United States does nonetheless Bernie is the front runner because he can fairly say, and he is correct that he led the way on Medicare for all which is a bunch of nonsense to scam. But he can say led the way all the Democrats are imitating him. He can say he led the way on the green new deal. He can say he led the way on universal childcare and free education for all. He made a lot of promises that all the Democrats than have to copy. So that they don't look like they are stingy in the Democratic Party. It's just a contest as to basically the Democratic Party is a van and a public park that says on it free candy. Bernie Sanders drives up, and you don't want to be the second guy with the van that says free candy you to be the first guy with the van attracting the children that says free candy if you wish to then dismember the country. So Bernie Sanders. Listen, he is the leader. I mean, Kamala Harris is having dancer questions about Bernie Sanders is agenda not the other way around. Now. I will say one thing in favor of Bernie Sanders. I think the Bernie Sanders is less dangerous to the country. Then Kamala Harris, and maybe Cory Booker, the reason I say that is because Bernie as a socialist believes that racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, all of these terrible social ills from which the United States suffers that can all be cured with socialism and one socialism is implemented we can reach a post racial world, where merit an effort are finally rewarded or he said this in his launch interview with NPR in Vermont. Here's what he had to say about intersection in about the presidential candidates of twenty twenty. Got to look at candidates not by the color of their skin by the sexual orientation of their gender. I mean, I think we've got to try to move us toward a non-discriminatory society, which looks at people based on their abilities. From what they stand for. Oh, he's not allowed to say that saying that we should look at candidates not because they're black or if they're gay or if they're women or if they're older young we should look at them based on their quality sounds like a conservative they're burning. So a little bit too conservative they're burning. That's a problem for Bernie Sanders. I'll explain why. This makes Bernie Sanders more of an attractive candidate to me. Then Kamala Harris in just one second..

"They've needed to file in secret as Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega continues to crack down on his opposition newspapers. Other media outlets have exposed brutality by government and paramilitary forces. But media offices have been raided by the police. Journalists have been beaten and arrested and otherwise threatened. There's a similar story out of Nigeria military personnel showed up this week at the headquarters and other offices of the daily trust, which is one of Nigeria's largest newspapers, according to CNN to journalists were detained because the army said they published a story that put soldiers lives in danger and shared classified information. Now, David we've kind of gone through this and the US in terms of prior restraint of newspapers. It was one of the things that came up with the Pentagon papers. But talk about this case in in Nigeria and what the political environment's like right now over there. We're heading into a presidential election in Nigeria Bahari, the current president ran on a security platform. And so what you have is a newspaper reporting on the security situation, not going, particularly well in this case, it was an offensive against Boko haram who had taken certain areas in in Nigeria. And so I think we should be pretty skeptical of the idea that this is this has only to do with military secrets given the the political environment. As you mentioned can we back up to Nicaragua? Joyce, you had mentioned them, can you give us a sense of what role the press has been playing there, particularly if they've been pushing harder on Ortega's government, and that's prompted more oppression. Like, how's that plan? Right now, they are trying to push as you mentioned, they they're working and secret trying to uncover some corruption and other stories, but it's it's so I don't think it's an. Easy task especially for us. Journalists sitting in Washington to to be in their shoes to work under Ortega who has been consistent and has assault on freedom affects oppression. I think it's remains to be seen how this plays out. But it's it's not pretty one more story out of Africa. We should note Congo has finally announced the results from its election which had taken place on December thirtieth the winner. Took a number of people by surprise Felix Chesa Katie was declared the winner on Thursday. He's the opposition leader as we said that took some people by surprise. But David what was it about that that surprised people? So the backdrop to this election is that Joseph could be has been in power for eighteen years in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He's clung onto power after his term should have ended. Finally, we had delayed elections. And he and his preferred successor was up against two opposition candidates, one of whom Martin. Blue was expected to be the stronger of the two opposition candidates. Ultimately when the results were announced the other opposition candidate was declared the winner leading to speculation that could be may have cut a deal. Basically, don't investigate me. Let me keep what's mine out step aside. You can be president. Now. I I don't have that firsthand, obviously, that's just a rumblings. But, but there's no reason to be particularly credulous when it comes to election results in the Democratic Republic of Congo internet was cut off after elections because of rumblings about what the results were going to be. So this is an area where there's not a lot of trust. But I did hear from one expert that say people might be so excited to see Kabila go that they won't react negatively at the idea that these elections may not have been a credible. Although there had been some hopes David that this would be a historically democratic transfer of power for Congo. Congo has never had a democratic or peaceful transfer of power in its history. And so. This is a landmark that could be stepping aside. And yet, there's plenty of reason to think that he's not stepping aside in in a democratic format that would stand up to European standards before we get to our last story, if we could back up to secretary of state, Mike Pompeo for a moment and the Middle East trip that he's on kidding. We give us a sense of kind of where this goes from here..

I see when I. Go there and I stayed there people are remarkably calm they do not have. A desire to get more or game more like here you see the trust because you. Can actually put your input equal to more on foot And and leave it. There for time and get a response you put a lot on the table Dr Hanson Briefly on the. The notion of Russian influence? Nicaraguan flags, and Russian flags being displayed side-by-side on modes of transportation things like that is that familiar, to you of course if we go back to the Sandinista days and the Iran contra scandal and the eighties what the Reagan administration was. Concerned about was Russian influence in the Cold War Sure and that was one. Of the justifications for trying to overthrow the Sandinista government Daniel. Ortega has had an his sought a strong relationship with Russia back in the Cold War days with actually with the Soviet Union and continues to do that with Russia there is trade between Nicaragua Russia there. Are military there are weapons that have come from Russia into. Nicaragua it's still a relationship that Daniel Ortega thinks is very important if, you can imagine he voted with Russia not to condemn the Syrian, regime and the. And the bombing of civilian? Neighborhoods with, shoving of these barrel bombs out of planes to wreak havoc on civilian neighborhoods so I, can't speak directly to the amount of economic involvement I suspect that it's fairly Small but what there is would certainly be visible because there is a propaganda value for both. Sides. In having that I'd also like to respond to one of the first comments. That your guest made which has to do with the nature of the Sandinista police I think one of the things that that a lot of us who have followed Nicaragua. For a long time find the. Most surprising is. The level of repressive weasel force that the Sandinista police. Are using against unarmed civilians some people with with you know. Kind of homemade improvised weapons but for the most part on armed protesters for the longest time the explanation for why Nicaragua did not have gangs of the kind that El Salvador and Honduras you know have. Have been afflicted with was because the Sandinista police which grew. Out of this revolutionary move Had a very sort of community based policing strategy was close to the. Community and therefore was also a force for the prevention of violence and I think that certainly was true for a period of time and over. Past years while the international community was really not paying a lot of attention to Kerala the police became more, and more politicised and you know took on much more of a political policing function still I have to say, that I I am, surprised by, the degree of lethal force, that is being used not only by the Sandinista police but by, these paramilitary groups the so called a tour bus we're really out of time but the two, things very, briefly one I don't wanna let a cultural slur go by if that was a cultural slur By the caller about Nicaraguans carrying whether they work hard and get out of poverty is the, way I heard his comment, how did you hear it and. Second with this crisis are, we going to now see Nicaraguan refugees, adding to the others in central from Central America trying to come to North America Well I think certainly you know a. Migration a greater push towards migration is in the cards to the extent that this crisis festers and there's no resolution in sight because, the economy is going to really take a hit so there will be both you know economic drivers as well as the. General situation of violence for in the short term I think that Nicaragua's neighbor Costa Rica is. Most likely to feel the brunt of that Nicaraguans may start coming to the United States but I think that's a little bit further down the road and we'll have to see how long the the crisis continues I'm not. Sure that I heard the the callers comic in the?.

Just remind us how did this all begin a so, this is frustration and anger in this country that's in building for many years. President Ortega's in his, fourth term as president over that time he has undermined. Democratic institutions and, a lot of ways the spark that set off the protests in April, was a change to the social security system that made people, pay more and receive less retirement and the revision does of elderly people protesting this and then getting beaten by police and those were seen around the country. And. People guy extremely upset and there were large marches in the, streets and when police then fired on those protests in there There's further crackdown in violence that really nothing's off you mentioned that the State Department's have been communicating with Ortega's government what have those communications been like what is the. US government, saying the US government has been calling on. The Nicaraguan government to stop using violence against protesters they have? Issued sanctions against Nicaraguan officials they have essentially said. That the use of force against against these protesters is unacceptable and that they're calling for a, democratic peaceful solution to the problem but is any of that pressure making a difference on the ground so far it hasn't it hasn't made a huge difference the president Ortega has refused to consider early elections the dialogue process between the church the protests and the business community has essentially. Been put on hold as the situation continues to passively escalate I'm, just wondering where people are seeking refuge I. Mean most of the migrants coming to the US mex- Geico border happened from Mexico El Salvador Guatemala Honduras but not from Nicaragua do you give them a.

That the Nicaraguans are fleeing in large numbers primarily to Costa Rica the stories that have come out so far and yeah it's possible that the, numbers of Nicaraguans traveling to the US could increase as well that hasn't been like you said. That they traditionally haven't been coming in. Large numbers or at. Least compared to the numbers. Of the, neighboring countries, but it's possible those.
