Rudy Giuliani: Our Security Programs Worked in Colombia
"Our greatest successes were in Colombia because in Columbia, South Carolina. Sorry, South Carolina. Columbia South America. You're talking about bringing this to places that are famous for their culture. To the cartel center of America, which is no longer the cartel center of America. But I knew Columbia well, from my work as a prosecutor, because I did a lot of prosecutions of Colombian drug dealers. I have the great I have the great distinction of having two contracts put out on me by the farc to slip my throat. Which means I was getting I knew I was getting somewhere when that happened. And I knew Columbia so that that helped also. And they were willing to make their police department honest. That's the biggest thing. That's amazing. If I do a comp staff program and the police promise crooked, it doesn't work very well. So we got some great reductions there. We did a lot of work. I did work in Ukraine. You know the city, they talk about car cave. The one right on the border, but we did the crime management program for them. And we designed emergency management center for them. And I knew they would hold out. But you're telling me that people around the world were willing to use this to bring crime down and that American mayors have not used this. Except for friends who I have advised off the cuff. No one has ever really taken us in to really do our program. I know it would work. I know if you gave me and three or four people like Bernie Carrick. If you gave me 6 months in Chicago, I could cut the murder rate, I hate to predict. I always predict lower. 20, 30%.

Speaking From the Heart with SLP Lauren Sharpe-Payne
"Lauren. Welcome to the wo- med. Thank you in fact i to be here so for those of you who don't know morin. Sharp pain is a speech pathologist. And i have been dying to get speech. Pathologist on the wool med. So when you tell people what you do what's the first thing that they automatically assume. No people automatically assume i work with kids. I just can't sit kids and teach them how to say either s.'s. Or their ps. And i mean with all this do that but i actually work with adults since i think. The stereotype with speech pathology sitting down playing games working on different sounds But there's so much more to it than that so yeah well. I'll admit one of my good friends is literally dreading the day that her two year olds list goes away. It's really cute though because right now. Her z's literally come from the back of her mouth. Like all the kerr molars and she's just adorable. It's really cute it is. Oh my gosh yeah so you mentioned that you work with adults so did you. Is that kind of where you got started with. Everything or your passion really was but actually started my career working with kids. I worked with kids for about two years. Two and a half years and i liked it initially But i quickly found out. Just it wasn't like farc me like it wasn't my passionate area and so i worked really hard to kind of tradition over to the medical side of each pathology and i started working at outpatient rehab. I was seeing a lot of patients who had had strokes in like traumatic brain injuries and swallowing disorders. And i really found that that was really my passion and that's really what made me feel fulfilled at the end of the day. And so that's what i've been doing. Ever since that point. I love that i feel like i. I mean the only real interactions and stuff that i've had working with with speech was i used to work in the nikko. Nice and so. We'd have speech consoles all the time you know. We had like paralyzed vocal. Cords or you know. Cleft lip or palate premiums just couldn't quite figure out how to suck swallow breathe. Exactly yeah echo cool. Yeah so there's just it just sounds like there's so many different fields within so p. wrote there are there are. Mike said i think most of the time. Most people associate s. l. p. With you know working with kids like in the school. I think the school was really popular. But like you said there's so many different areas you know. We can work in hospital. We can work in nursing homes and you know fools and fire practices. So there's there's really a lot of different options in terms of you know where we can work which is really cool. So what led you into this career like how did you first hear about it and you know get interested in it so it's funny excellent to be a lawyer up until my senior year of high school and i remember i had already declared my major and a second of sociology class in high school and their story about the young girl. Her name was genie. I don't know if you've heard the story. But she was locked away for twelve years that her parents never interacted with hers. Get no human interaction and yeah it was. I saw that and like she had no communication at mike whatsoever and so she worked with the speech therapist and he was able to communicate. It wasn't all verbal. Nonverbal buys using pictures. But i thought that was so neat that there was something out there. You could help people communicate and the rest is history. I just fell in love from that point. that's really beautiful So greenwich some little video. Yeah what's the school pathway lake like do you guys have to clinicals. is it Like a bachelors. Is it a doctoral degree. Now or like how like if you're going to coach someone through eight or tell someone you know what they're in for. Yeah so it's four. Years of undergrad And then you have to go to graduate school so for me. My program was in graduate school. But if you don't have speech as an undergraduate degree typically a two and a half maybe three years for the graduate program and then after that your life and your certify after a nine month period. There's no doctoral degree right now. That recommended or like that's required to be a speech pathologist but you can most certainly get them back degree that not in my pets whatsoever But after getting your master's degree through what all the clinical fellowship here and so that nine months after you graduate where you're essentially practicing. Slc like getting a salary and everything. But you're still technically under supervision and so after that nine months Once you have all of your hours your than a certified speech pathologist so you don't need any supervision or you know no one's giving you feedback just kinda on your own completely after that point. Wow yeah is there different routes that you take if you want to be more on the medical side of things versus you know in schools or or working with pedes a good question so i know in graduate school. We do externships so typically if there are two externships one is medical. One is typically pediatrics. might be in the school. There might be private practice. But i know that's alive. Students really kind of narrow down where they want to be in terms of their career so a lot of students. We'll just try to warm more relationships with people a medical they feel like they wanna pursue medical side or vice versa with school side and then with the clinical fellowship years so that nine month period actor graduation many students will try and get their cf wire the clinical fellowship your and that desired area of speech that way after they're done they can't hopefully get a medical job or a pediatric job. You know what they don't need this revision to

"Factions of the FARC guerilla shipped cocaine and marijuana to Brazil. The geography here is harsh and difficult to navigate for outsiders. Locals say the dissidents need guides. People who know the landscape. That's why they come after the indigenous communities that line this river. Because they've lived here forever. Enough. One tiny settlement I meet 14 year old Liliana from the Kobe Oh tribe. She escaped the ranks of the dissident FARC earlier last year. These guerilla factions that either refused to disarm or that have rearmed since their formal demobilization in 2016 has begun to reassert their control over several parts of the country. Miss Dalia and then it quickly you calm your mind. I was dreaming when seven could release a right and told me and my sister that they would kill us if we refuse to go with them. I was very afraid. Liliana says She and her 16 year old sister were taken to a training camp in the neighboring state of Guaviare. E. Macedonia will see they give us a rifle and I felt really bad. It was the first time in my life it ever seen a gun. He taught us how to shoot. I started crying. After three weeks, Lillian and her sister decided to try and escape under the cover of darkness. They made a run for it with several other Children have been abducted. Karima zero Hamas put into you Across the river screaming. We took off our clothes, boots and everything. The others couldn't make it because they didn't take off their boots. They were killed and we survived. Liliana is just one of dozens of teenagers recruited in the Amazon last year.

Amazon Deforestation Reaches 12-Year High
"In the Brazilian Amazon has exploded under president Gyre Belson ARO. New data from the country's Space agency shows the rate of deforestation is at a 12 year high. The rain forest is home to approximately one million indigenous people. So what's the impact on on them? them? Gustavo Gustavo Fella Fella does does is is the the founder founder of of Info Info Amazonia, Amazonia, a a data data based based journalism journalism initiative. initiative. He He says says illegal illegal logging, logging, land land grabs grabs for for farming farming and and even even gold gold mining mining has been encouraged by the Bulls in our government. It's threatening indigenous people. So you have a lot of land grabbing and invasions and territories, Indigenous territories by this illegal miners, while the discourse and in both arms of course it's him. I called this is our cat miners. You know these people need to survive and just find some gold in the river is not like that. It's real mining going on were like huge, expensive machines. We've done that need for Macedonia large investigations showing that this is a big business connected to Amster done or Miami and as the pandemic evolves, and gold gets the highest price ever. There's no way of getting out of this because people won't Stop buying gold. The pressure is coming directly to the Amazon and fueling this illegal activities asked me to Boston, hers doing something no, not at all. Both. An arrow has had an ally in President Trump in terms of supporting industry over the environment, But there has been a shift. Incoming President Joe Biden has threatened economic consequences if deforestation continues. Do you think more international pressure could impact both scenarios environmental approach one way It's clear that economic pressure trade barriers my change, but at the same time you see the recent to Abidin mention, kind of energized the base of both of my arms and like that's what they want. They want to our hands on, so he creates a kind of political environment that is prone for the kind of nationalistic discourse as well. Let me ask you this. If pressure from the United States government isn't going to do the trick, then I'm wondering how concerned you are about what is happening in the Amazon and and what you see in the short term as the future there. Look, My main concern is that while this is happening, you know like this back and forth and pressure, international pressure damaged ones get more and more illegal. We know about drug trafficking. Of the FARC in Colombia has operated for years in the Amazon and now the Ambien guerilla group. Exactly so now that they're all mostly done in Colombia, all this trade routes of cocaine have moved to Brazil. The brew and the south part of Venezuela, and the war is fierce there. I don't know if you have looked at some point the home side rates of the Amazon cities right now, they just like the highest in Brazil, because all the you know like a criminal activity off the big centers of the South had moved there because they're trying to control that. And this money is linked to a lot of other illegal activities, including the four station because it's a big way of mounting your money and getting land and it's moving into illegal mining, legal mining off gold. It's huge. Now it's the highest level ever in the Amazon, all the Amazon countries, especially in south part of Venezuela. Which is controlled by the same Gabriel is that left London And so we have a regional security issue that is really building up. Most powerful A Rose is in Sao Paolo.

"When those two things conflict, humanity should come first. To say that the public has and how science is done has to be an informed, say. No pitchforks and torches. This's why a movement that takes existentially risk seriously requires trustworthy, skilled trained scientists to make our say an informed one. We rely on them for that science isn't the enemy. If we abandon science, we're doomed. If we continue to take the dangers of science casually, we're doomed. The only route through the near future is to do science, right? And scientists aren't the enemy either. They have often been the ones who sounded the alarm when science was being done recklessly when a threat emerged that had been overlooked. Those physicists who decided that three and a 1,000,000 was an acceptable chance of burning off Earth's atmosphere were the same ones who figured out that there was something to be concerned with in the first place. It was microbiologist who called for a moratorium on gain of function research after the H five n one experiments. It was particle physicists who wrote papers questioning the safety of the Large Hadron Collider. If you're a scientist, start looking seriously at the consequences of your field, and if work within it poses an existential risk. Start writing papers about it. Start analyzing how it can be made safe. Take custody of the consequences of your work. The people who are dedicated to thinking about exist. Central risks are waiting for you to do that. This's Sebastian FARC, or, to a certain extent, organizations like Thie F h i. The Future of Humanity Institute. Their job is just poke the rest of the community. And by the way, this is a thing. And then for a I researchers or biology researchers to take that on and to make it their own project and the sooner And the more I can step out of that game and leave it to those communities better. Many of these solutions are already being worked on. Scientists around the world are researching large problems in raising alarms. But since we have a limited amount of time since we're racing the clock We have to make sure that we don't waste time working on risks that seem big but don't qualify as genuine existential threats and we can't tell one type from the other until we start studying them. Biggest sea change, though, has to come from society in general. We have to come together like we never have before. We have to put scientists in a position to understand existentially risks.

right at the Chapel Hill UNC Chapel Hill pugs has tested positive for covert nineteen and this is the first known case of a dog with a couple of cats in New York domesticated cats and before that we had the actual Tigers at the Bronx zoo they tested positive now we've got a dog and according to WRAL television is the Chapel Hill family's dog tested positive the family was involved in a study at Duke in which the mother father and son tested positive for covert nineteen and during the study the family heather Petz tested as well they found that their punk wins them what a door below pong and look at his picture right now of the pond Winston also tested positive Dr Chris ward's the investigator chief investigator at Duke in this study said the virus that causes covert nineteen was detected and believes it's the first non positive case in a dog now the family's mother is heather McLean she's a pediatrician at Duke and she said that her dog was experiencing mild symptoms she said the pugs are you unusual and if they cough and sneeze in a very strange way so it almost seems like he was gagging and was one day when they don't want to eat his breakfast and says Hey pugs love to eat and that was very unusual the dog lex all of our dinner plates and sleeps on my mom's bed and we're the ones who put our faces into his face so it makes sense that he got coronavirus said the maclean's son them there for pets two dogs a cat and a lizard and the dogs and cat were tested only Winston tested positive what are you to test the lizard what is that guy co thing what is the geico lizard have to say about this and it's just interesting that came out to the house from Duke and they did the swabs they did blood samples and let's see here it certainly did a molecular and epidemiological study of suspected infection the messy on April first they came out to our house the blood samples for the humans they swap their nose as well as our mountain for the animals that did oral swabs for Bulldogs in the cat the daughter was the only family member the tested negative interesting but the son of the mother and the father they tested positive yeah the father works in the emergency room at USC hospitals Weston was sick for a few days he's doing a lot better but now this apparently is the first dog that we know of but I'm sure there are probably other dogs that would test positive as well to the phone thanks for your patience folks I really appreciate you calling in and waiting regarding the mental health aspect let us start with Robert Panama City Florida and Robert your first up on **** hi holding up I'm doing okay it's just been really rough tell me why and you know I talked about the mental health issues in this study what's been rough for you and how you're getting along and and how is it manifesting itself in you well it's affecting the fact you know you when you're you're taking this thing very seriously and you're trying to but it's like the people around you are the people that it's in in the city are not taking it serious you know continue in their life like normal and it's and it's not normal I mean I'm I have health conditions and I'm concerned that catch the nineteen and and I'm just really scared it's just gotten worse and it's gotten to where you get to a point of depression you stay at home you got nowhere to no one to talk to sometimes and it's just been really tough all right I'm sorry to hear Willis I'm glad you called so we can discuss it so your your anxiety or your added pressure comes from where you see people in Panama City that are not practicing what you believe is good social distancing that's what he brings you even more anxiety absolutely absolutely you know I do everything I can to protect myself but whenever you see people that doesn't doesn't seem like they care they that they're not taking it serious there's you know they're not separating they're not keeping their distances you know they just go on and on the beach I guess not then and you know just everyday life here it's just not it's they're not taking it seriously is beginning to be a little bit scary award about officials not forcing some of these things so

Colorado and Jarrod Jarrod euron Schmidt hi thank I think I'm doing remarkably well.
National Labs Respond to COVID-19
"Joining me today. Chris Fall Director of the Department of Energy Office of Science Chris. Welcome to the show. Thanks or currently facing the threat of cove in nineteen which the World Health Organization has classified as a pandemic when people think of the to an infectious disease like this they usually think of agency is like the CDC or the Department of Health and Human Services. How is the Department of Energy? Been involved in the response to the virus. Well first and foremost the Department of Energy's responding by taking care of its people. I mean we've got a lot of people not just here in Washington but around the country at our labs and sites our first responsibility and what? We're very focused on is making sure they're okay contingency planning for what might come but in any nationally sensitive situation emergency or otherwise. The Department of Energy is here because we've got some responsibilities to the country into the federal system. One is energy right. Our responsibility is to make sure the electrical grid is resilient and working and working with the the private sector that runs that and other elements of of the energy system. Another thing we do is we maintain develop and build the nation's strategic deterrent. It's not something you just walk away from so we need to make sure that's okay. The materials involved with that or secure and so forth and of course we do a lot of science and technology for the country. And so that's an opportunity and in one way that we're responding in particular to this crisis so tell me more about the work that the scientists at our national labs have been doing to understand Covet nineteen sure great question and boy. They've been fantastic in two ways one. Is You know they're always doing science? And technology including on things like viruses. And so they're ready to respond to something like this particular outbreak but they have been doing some particular things. One thing they've been doing is using our x Ray light sources to take pictures essentially of the virus understand the structure of it. And that's a one way to understand how we could impact at virus with drugs for example to shut it down Hand in hand with taking pictures of the next light sources modeling structure of the virus on a computer. We have phenomenal supercomputers we use them for things like modeling viruses. We have the capability to do. Some biochemical characterization in models of disease for example is basic research about how viruses spread in cells and tissues. And how we might measure that so things that could lead to better testing or to vaccines and then the other thing. We do which is actually really interesting as we use supercomputers for something else and as evidence so we can model the spread of a disease like Cova Nineteen in population in our country in the world and so forth and so we use our computers for that four ways. I'm sure there are some others. I'm not thinking of but for big Broadway's that our scientists are working to help with code nineteen right and this is happening so obviously we have seventeen national labs. This is this is happening all across the country at all these different labs who are doing work in these different fields correct. Yeah that's right a different labs have different capabilities but we do have light sources at a number of labs. You've got supercomputers at a number of labs some of those are off society slabs that work more directly with me some than others nuclear labs. They still do work in biology. So not every lab is working on this. Not Every lab has the capability but they are all participating together in a working group that we've put together ask questions. Hey have you thought of this? Did you try that? And experts from all of those laboratories are getting together to answer those questions in response to this virus outbreak. And I think that leads into point I wanted to make about the national labs. Why are they uniquely suited to respond to a crisis challenge such as this? So we do have again. We know we've got When we're talking about a specific crisis like this virus we do have some very special capabilities to handle dangerous things including viruses. Let me talk more. Generally the Department of Energy has some sport. I like to call a super powers when it comes to science and technology and one of those. Is these big user facilities when I say an x Ray Light source? We're talking about something. That's vast bigger than a football field. Could be much bigger than a football field. In diameter a synchrotron that produces special x rays or other instruments are user facilities or one superpower. Scientists scale There are a lot of agencies that are part of the US Science and Technology System do science that fund science uniquely really among all of these agencies is our ability to do big science. Lots of people working on a problem. They know how to work together. They know how to share information and data. So that's a superpower. And then the other thing we really bring relatively uniquely because we have these laboratories we have these physical places that are doing. All different kinds of work is convergent. So you know at one laboratory. We may have biologists. Yes but we have chemists and mathematicians and computer scientists and and physicist and all of those people bring different perspectives to a problem. And so convergence is again is a superpower of the Department of Energy so convergence science at scale and then these world unique really user facilities that we build and maintain and operate on behalf of the country. Can we talk a little bit about pass challenges that the national labs have helped us tackle as anything come to mind you know at the scale of of scientific or human health challenges that the labs have responded to in this way in the past? Let me start by saying. There's something we did that. It wasn't really about a human health challenge but it has completely revolutionized our understanding of humans and human health and human biology. And that's the human genome project. The Department of Energy started the human genome project and then went on to collaborate with the National Institutes of Health. To scale it up and and sequencing entire human genome and now of course that's become routine but we've been in similar situations before and we responded pretty much in the same way when there was the Zeka outbreak when there was the Abullah outbreak are x Ray light sources were used to characterize the pathogens. Take pictures of it we modeled. He is on computers. We did the same epidemiology modeling. We know how to do this stuff. And so when these crises occur people calling the Department of Energy and the disease is clearly a global threat so how is the Department of Energy Coordinating with other agencies? Both at home and abroad sure. That's a great question Let me let me say there are two parts that we started out by talking about responsibilities of the Department of Energy so obviously we are connected with other agencies like homeland security or FARC on things like the electrical grid and making sure we have power and you know if those people get sick or impacted. We have backups. For All of that. We obviously are in constant contact regarding as most agencies. Are this emergency response. Stuff was going on with our people. What's going on? With our sites folks like Homeland Security folks like health and Human Services that are coordinating. The federal government response plugged into all of that and working with them and of course their science and technology and so already we have a long standing deep relationship with the National Institutes of health. I talked about these. Phenomenal world-class user facilities that we support while they're used by the National Institutes of health. All the time routinely notches for a crisis like this But we're absolutely plugged in. You can imagine a crisis late covet. Nineteen a lot of folks are asking what we could do. Including scientists and across the federal government we are coordinated talking to those folks who is best equipped to answer a particular question. How can the Department of Energy help? So we're right there at the tape in times like this. What is something that inspires you or gives you confidence about our ability to rise? This challenge sure That's an easy one. It's the people is the people in the Department of Energy. I gotTa Tell You And not just you know here in headquarters but out across the labs and sites you know. This outbreak popped up and it wasn't a What should we do? Can we go home? sort of Response it was. How can we help and it was more than just? How can we help? Here's all the things that we think that we can do to help. How do we get started You know can we move forward and so that inspires a lot of confidence? When when people see a problem they don't run from it. They run to it and want to know how to help solve IT Director Chris. Fall with the Department of Energy Office of Science. Thank you very much for your time. Thank yous

N.

that Russia is once again acting to influence our presidential election and once again they're trying to influence the election in favor of president Donald Trump folks the Russians have interfered for a long time there was interference going on during the Obama administration there was interference going on obviously in twenty sixteen twenty eighteen min terms and and the mid terms and we're expecting even greater interference at twenty twenty and that's where we are so we have this Stanford they goes to Capitol Hill to brief lawmakers at no point in the briefing to the official from the office of the director of national intelligence affectionately called the ODNI at no point did they allege or assert that trump or any Americans are involved in any kind of Russian campaign in any way shape or form it's just what the Russians independently walked the briefing was focused on just one thing the briefing was focused on the flip in Russians are still at it they're still trying to toil interfere get there a grungy hands all over our democratic election process here in these United States of America are you surprised you shouldn't be they should not come as a surprise that everybody Dan coats the former director of national intelligence he warned us about this as well so what if the I. director Christopher Wray other officials in trump's administration but what has been reported here is that the president became really pissed but trump became I raked not and Russia nodded Vladimir Putin the actual culprits here but at his own guy the acting director of national intelligence John McGuire who was installed by president trump hired by trump and now if fired by trump and according to multiple reports again The New York Times have this out first then other media outlets independently confirmed but according to these reports president trump was livid that Maguire allow the briefing to take place at all and it was also livid that Adam Schiff who is a cheesy CD's slimy

to do but do a drama he tried to draw I do are you a sopranos like script a godfather to like script with the memorandum which was just stupid he'll never live it down they should never live it down and it completely tainted and it was this going to be biased it is given the gender as a Democrat anyway against Republicans and especially trump but I mean what he did was just sold self damaging it was just dumb as can be anyway I I went off a little but trail there but trump was really ticked off that ship was in the meeting at all and look for the issue always is that shift is the chairman of

was just briefed so Ellen to trump's outright rage is the fact that he apparently wasn't aware that the briefing was taken place that was happening and he wasn't briefed himself until the very next day now I think that they should have briefed trump first before they briefed members on Capitol Hill including Adam Schiff you know he found out about the congressional briefing from Devin newness

Colombia's Uneasy Peace
"The columbia peace deal of two thousand sixteen looked at the time like an unalloyed good news story. It ended more than half a century of civil war for which had left than two hundred sixty thousand people dead and millions more wounded displaced or terrorized. It won a nobel peace. Prize is four columbia's president of the time on manuel santos. Columbia's piece was not perfect indeed the first deal between colombia's government and the colombian rebel group faulk was rejected by colombia's people at a referendum but no peace every is perfect peace requires compromise forgiveness us and patients commodities often in short supply in places recently at war this week. We were reminded of how fragile colombia's peace is. Two former farc commanders announced that they were taking up again was vastly more difficult to stop than start. Every lesson zain about peacemaking has been learned the hard way but in columbia and elsewhere. What do we know about what works and what doesn't if peace is is obviously preferable to war. Why do peace processes so often fail or falter. This is the foreign desk very very few few people people voted voted attended attended for for as as far far as as a a political political party party they'd they'd been been waging waging war war against against the the colombian colombian state state for for fifty fifty years years and and many many colombian cedefop walk as simply narcotraffickers and they couldn't terrorists so they don't have popular support among those colombians rent. A conflict is in in the public attention. That'd be more support when it isn't. There'll be a few international agencies. I'll be a lot of locals still pursuing the goal of peace against strong forces that are reluctant to give up weapons because they're reluctant to give up their power and they're fearful of what it means to give up their how they wear a lot of immediate causative effects less violence more investment stock market than escrow went through the roof and lots more palestinians could cross the border and work in israel but the the enemies of peace force became much stronger than the end. They won the astro. A court was too vulnerable given the counterforces <music>. You're listening to the foreign desk with me andrew muller well. Let's start in columbia and i'm joined from there by monaco's qatar correspondent anastazia maloney anastazia these two former faulk commanders who now proposed to become once again farc commanders hastened sandwich entre yvonne marquez how significant ave as as figures within the movement. They're really significant figures particularly by marcus who go that's his wartime alias. He really was the key negotiator in cuba for several years where he negotiated worth the colombian government government the terms of the peace deal and he appeared on t._v. For years in civilian clothes saint colombians. We've reached us peace a cold world. We are betting on peace so for many people he was the face off peace accords so the fact that he goes on video last week and says i'm. I'm calling on followers to take arms again. It's real bitter blow. <hes> for the peace process will come back to the question of his followers presently presently but first of all his motivations when he says he's returning to war against whom and why so he said that he was disheartened with the peace deal he believes that the government has betrayed the peace deal that is being far too slow to implement the terms the peace accord and he points to the fact that there is no security ford mobilized fighters which the government had promised so he says that demobilize fighters who gave up their weapons were willing to support the peace deal he says about one hundred and fifty people have been killed so far and he said that the government promised to guarantee them securities. That's one of the games that he feels hasn't been addressed by the government. He's also also saying that. He doesn't believe that the government is really committed to this peace accord and those are the main reasons why is decided to go back to to the struggle way scoring a second phase or the armed struggle when he talks about it being a second phase he has also made some reference to this sort of of clandestine political movement that he and his his sandwich claim to be launching as he spelled out what he's ultimate aim actually is does he basically basically just want to resurrect the farc of the half century long civil war recently ended or is he thinking of this as some entirely new apparatus autos and it's really not sure and he wasn't clear in in the statements that he made on the video about his real intentions and how it's going to pan out but what what is clear is that he does have followers there are people who never gave up their weapons and join the peace process and there's about two thousand dissidents as they're known <hes> so when he talks about his followers he's really talking to those dissidents to join in him and as far as who he's fighting. He said that he will be on the offensive and that means that any attacks carried out by state station security forces state military he will respond. It's perhaps not that surprising given how recently columbia's war theoretically ended that somebody with the cachet of his contract and yvonne marquez might be able to find two thousand armed malcontents contents willing to follow them once again but beyond that do they have any actual popular support among the colombian people if they do resurrect a campaign donovan violence anything like what farc wants wrought across the country. Will they have any sympathy at all. Hardly have any sympathy a tool ooh and in fact in the last elections when the far became a political party as a result of the peace accord they did really really badly very few the people voted for the as a political party and their ideology so they'd been waging war against the state for fifty fifty years and many colombians see the farc as simply narcotraffickers and they call terrorists nocco terrorists so they do not have half of popular support among most colombians and support you remember in fact public referendum that asks whether or not the favor of the pizza called it was not passed by half of the voters so the peace accord started off being a very unpopular simply because many colombians don't trust in the fall from their intentions and the fact that even marcus comes video dressed in only the teak surrounded by many guns just basically feeds into the fee he is a skepticism about seventy communes had this peace process of the very beginning so he's that perhaps it right there that the real reason why this faction of faulk faulk at least is contemplating a return to violence is acknowledged -ment on their part really. That's all they've got. I think what they're saying to the dissidents and what they think are their supporters is that we are with you and we are. We are still going to fight for what we believe in and they thought they could do that without arms are now. They going to have to go back to ours because as far as they're concerned they're faithful to the the peace accord so they want to see what they have signed. I should be put into practice and they're saying that we are trying to not going to sit idly and just watch the government do nothing and that's why they are taking up their own again

"Arms for cocaine with FARC the Colombian terrorist organization most forty to fifty tons of cocaine a month and cocaine is stored in in Africa under the control of ISIS and al Qaeda so now we go to look at what has the U. S. been doing with respect to this and that and and in the last five or six years there have been a number of cases that have been brought one against the former vice president Terrick ill I saw me one against Hugo Carvajal the former head of the Venezuelan military intelligence indicted in New York and Miami for trafficking but Nastro river Rev Ralph river all who is the commander of the Venezuelan National Guard indicted in New York and alleged to be on the payroll of the cartel and the former Venezuelan anti drug unit official Eddie Burke the Molina who was indicted in New York and alleged to be on the payroll of the cartels top that off with two individuals who are the nephews of the wife of Nicolas Maduro their last names are for us George the New York with conspiracy to smuggle a hundred kilos of cocaine into the U. S. and then Peter Louis Martine and and another individual former Venezuelan intelligence officials and anti knock narcotics investigators both charged in Florida with drug trafficking in the United States so the Venezuelan people who have been attempting to get their country back are facing a very very difficult challenge because Maduro is being propped up in place by our bye bye nations that are definitely and not looking out for our interests in any way in in any way shape or form and criminal organizations that are extremely extremely heavily entrenched in Venezuela.

Speaking of noon toys, we got we got a forklift a forklift over the shop. Our guy at the shop is, is always on like these crazy little, like local auction sites and like police auctions and stuff. This wasn't a police auction, but he's constantly looking at that stuff, and he's like, we need a new. We need another forklift. We finally need a forklift. If you guys listen to car castle while ago I and I were talking about we spent I don't know. However long getting the camel GT pace car up on the big podium. We build the rack and put Jackson Durham the ramps and put Jackson so they don't bend up. And the way we got it up there last time as we had the forklift, and, but we borrowed a forklift from the neighbor and the neighbor moved away. So we didn't have one. And finally, you know, we've we've found one. Pretty good deal. And he just he just got it over there. And he's only through work with. Everyone needs for this is this is the best thing in the world. It's extra heavy duty. It's, it's, it's pretty new always stored it inside. It's got a couple of little bumps on it. Like every forklift should but. I don't I hope I don't think he did. But, but he's he got it. He wants to like just quickly go through and make sure everything's running the way it's supposed to all works out good. But, but we I went over there today and it's sitting out the parking lot, and they kinda got an apart. And I don't know why was like sweet forklift. Tell them to pick up the dumpster, but it is hot.

"Why they thought that other journalists simply Warren following big stories that painted anybody other than Donald Trump in a negative life light and would cover endlessly any story true or not verified or not that painted the president in a negative light. And I don't I did not get a chance to read with their answers were. But I think about that all the time. You know, what the motivation is? And it used to be well, I think that they're inherently journalists come through these schools like the Columbia school of journalism, which is a liberal bastion where every professor is a liberal. And if you're not a liberal, you either shut up or you leave that's your alternative. And eventually you get inculcated with that craziness. And if you wanna be part of the profession you adapt. So I think what you see. And I'll give you a perfect example CBS is going to be featuring a an edit. Well, whatever you call it a documentary. I guess or a report. On an area of the world that I've looked at for the last couple of years because it is where the largest number of criminal human smugglers live. It's called the Darien gap. And it's an undeveloped jungle swamp land that actually connects north and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, and it is without question. One of the most dangerous places in the entire America's north or south. It's overrun right now by human traffickers, and paramilitary organizations and drug smugglers, and it's so bad that the State Department. The US State Department has told Americans do not travel to this region. That doesn't stop CBS news though from running a flattering piece. Okay. A sympathetic profile of some of these human smugglers that are operating in this dangerous place. Yeah. They'd pick. This Coyote Amelia Emerson Gonzalez. Jimenez. I don't have any names guided Melia, I'm Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez. Who offers a generous service. This is how he describes himself to the migrants who are seeking passage through that Darien gap to get into Panama usually on their way to the United States. We're talking about Colombians, then as Wayland Haitians even people from Asia and Africa hired the services of these smugglers. If they get to this place, they can get these smugglers to bring them close enough to America. Now, it's not uncommon for them to die these migrants. They just die during this very dangerous journey because the gap has first and foremost, it's jungle it's wild and criminals operate within this jungle criminals are not known for their like humanitarian attitudes. There's a Marxist terrorists organization that many of you are familiar with call FARC, and that's the the Spanish language synonym for the revolutionary armed forces of Colombia, and it has been operating in this area and the Darien gap for over a decade for over two decades, actually FARC has traffic cocaine sells a ton of cocaine and guess where they're sending that cocaine. No, they're not sending it to Mexico. No, no. They're not sending it to Canada. They're sending it up to us to the United States of America. They're sending it to us. So that our children and even adults can become drug addicts. And we get sympathetic piece from CBS news a piece that says, oh, they're helping the the helpless in penniless migrants that are coming through the Darien gap. I mean, they are actually helping them these my can you imagine you're a migrant how helpless you are. Right. Maybe your family your whole extended family spent the last five years trying to sell everything they have. So that they can send two members of their family on this perilous journey that they may very well die on especially if they're females our children if they don't die. They will definitely be raped or they'll be forced into prostitution by these smugglers. But hey, they they gather up this money five grand eight grand ten grand whatever the going rate is. And they pay these coyotes like this creep that they're doing this sympathetic piece on number Gonzalez amenities they pay him everything their family's been able. To put together because he's so benevolent. He does it out of the goodness of his heart. Well, wait a second. If he was doing out of the goodness of his art. Why is he charging them so much money because you know, what? Eight grand is some Baroness living in Guatemala or Honduras or Venezuela right now. It's what I don't know. A million dollars is to us. So they paint him as this benevolent human being. He's just a really nice guy who's offering this service trying to help these human beings get to a safer place. They paid no attention in this documentary. And I and I haven't seen it. But I have a friend who has who broke a story on it, by the way. Who? They had no part of this documentary about the abuse of the helpless people. That's perpetrated on them by these human smugglers, nothing. No sympathetic story. Only about Emilio no sympathetic story about I don't know Florida. The eighteen year old with the two little children trying to make her way to safety who ends up at the bottom of the swamp along with her two children. I'm so sick of the way the media picks and chooses. How I'm supposed to feel about every story. They have predetermined that people like me are simply not sympathetic enough. And should be ignored. They like to say that I'm anti immigrant anti humanitarian causes nothing could be further from the truth. The best protection that we can offer this class of people who are so desperate to get out of where they are is to help them to restore where they are these countries that don't have any resources. These are not countries that shouldn't be living decent lifestyles with a democratic leadership instead of these oppressive regimes that come in abused, the people and then forced them into situations where they can't live in their own homes because they've got gangs, roaming, the streets where the police are afraid of the gangs. The answer is not to let everyone come into America. The answer is to be selective about what kind of aid. We give I'm sick and tired of hearing about the millions of dollars go to Central America every single year where did they go? They go into the pockets of these ruthless dictators. That's where they go. They live like kings look at this family. I mean, it's it's disgusting. When you look at pictures of the heirs of who goes shove is you know, these girls in their bikinis on their yachts waving dollar bills in their hand while the people in their nation are desperate to eat. Venezuela doesn't have a thriving underclass the average weight loss in Venezuela. Now, you gotta love this. Those of you who say, gee, I wish I could drop a few pounds moved to Venezuela. Twenty six pounds is the average weight loss for an adult and in Venezuela in the last twelve months, and that's not on the nutrisystem or Jenny Craig? That's on that. There's nothing to eat diet. I can only imagine what kind of suffering the children are going through what kind of diseases they're going to be besieged with because they haven't got milk to drink and their bones are not getting stronger, and they haven't got medicine if they get a bacteria or or worse yet some kind of microbe that attacks their organs. We're seeing people showing up at the border with a variety of illnesses that we have not seen in decades in really in a century. And I'm supposed to be called names because I don't think that's fair that I think they're American citizens who need our help. I'll be perfectly willing to help in American in need. But they don't get the help they need. We're too busy spending resources on people who literally their first act that they committed was to illegally come into this country. I don't expect much more from them. Right. Would you? Hey, look when your mother like I was and your kid breaks a rule. Either you punish them. And they know that that breaking of that rule again will will be an even worse punishment. Or they just keep doing it. I remember, you know, reading through my baby care with the Stockton Spock. When I had my daughter can all this wishy washy advice that they were giving my generation and raising their kids. Don't worry if your child does this just smile and say next time, we'll try harder and we raised a whole slew of snowflakes, right? They can't do anything for themselves. They all want a trophy, no matter whether they actually one or not, and and this is a service. This is how we treat our own and yet. Nobody wants to talk about. What a young person, I'll give you a perfect example. I met a family over the weekend seventeen year old she's going into you know, she's in her junior year of high school next year. She'll be a senior in high school. And I was talking to the mom and the mom said, well, it's really too late for me to do this Florida prepaid because she had heard me on the air talking about Florida prepaid. Now, no matter what most parents should be able if they start them early. They can put aside money that's frozen at rates of today. So that their kid can go to a Florida college. I started them for my kids, and my kids ended up going to you know, Ivy league institutions we didn't need that. But they would have never been deprived of higher education because that program existed, and I think I joined it the very first year. My daughter was like in middle school. My son was in elementary school. And I think it was like I I wanna say fifty dollars a piece at the time to get. By the time they were seventeen or eighteen there was enough money for them to go to college. And I felt bad for this person. I said, well, don't worry. You know, the if Bernie Sanders becomes president college will be free. Then she said, but I don't want it to be free. They should know that it has value things that are free. Don't really have that much value to this generation. We've made some real errors, you know. And I say this all the time. I was speaking to a group last week. And I said I blamed my generation I really do we made a lot of mistakes. And now we have saddled our kids with an enormous amount of debt, they're born into the debt. There's no way they're gonna be able to write this ship. And yet. Let's bring in some more under educated, perhaps physically compromised. Definitely intellectually challenged individuals. That sounds like a good path for.

So did you strike up a conversation at the store and then ask for her phone number or is that asking too much? Well, I'll see this often this much that I did meet her. I did I did speak with her.

I will. I will I will tell you. It was eatery of some sort. Wait food. Are you able to open up to Cathy? And just not us like at least on the date. You had real conversation. You know what I mean? Honestly, I'd rather not get into the mix of that. We had a conversation, and I found it to be engaging. So did you have a good time? I feel like you can tell us that without too much information. I will I will say that much. We did. I thought it was a good time. Ooh. So you went out with a girl that you met somewhere, and you went somewhere. Maybe had a food. And then you enjoyed yourself. That's all correct. Okay. So what do you quit wrong, and you're very vague date? I will say that I didn't notice anything in particular that might have gone wrong. You know, at the end, we did go back to her place, and I did try to kiss her. But she she said to me she didn't want to kiss. And I remember she said specifically, let's save it for next time. And I made I'm I'm sure that's what she said. Because I made sure to write it down. And you wrote it down like in your diary or white. Well, I wrote it down when I got back to my car. I had a notepad in my car. I wrote down. Hey. Let's save the kiss for next time. Meaning she probably was hoping for another date with you. Well, that's what I thought. Yes. Why what people say well? It's a good tool for remembering conversations. You never know when you're going to have to recall what happened, you know. I try to keep a good record. Right. You never know when you're going to be calling in to a radio station to do a second date update. But not giving them any information other than what the girl said to you at the end of the day. I'm sorry guys. I know it sounds that. I I can't say very much. But but look I I listen to you guys faithfully every day. That's very funny. And and find you very helpful. And coping granted, I know I I'm cautious. But I I'm hoping you can help because you know, honestly, you're you're basically the only ones that we can trust. We meaning the Royal. We like you calling yourself we or you and her I'd rather not get into that. But. You guys have no motivation to to put us in harm's way. So that's you know, I feel no. Not at all. I wanna get you a second date. I'm just hoping this works out because I have no information. That is are you concerned at all. Because you've heard these second date updates that. When we call the other person, Kathy could tell us all sorts of things about you. Well, I don't think that's possible. She doesn't know enough about me to compromise me in a in a way. I mean, I'm also very concerned about her safety concerned about her safety. Yes. Well, I've tried to contact her since our date each day, and she hasn't responded.
