"Heard about the six thousand nineteen project which since we don't have a ton of time i will simply say is evil and full of baloney but when you want some more details i would If you're going to reject something as utterly as i have you wanna be able to back it up with a big book. That has all the facts. Well mary gray bar. Who is my guest. Has written a book called debunking the sixteen nineteen project exposing the plan to divide america. Mary great bar. Welcome thank you. Well listen you. You wrote a book called debunking howard zinn exposing the fake history that turned generation against america. It's devastating stuff. I mean let's start there. Who are these people that obviously you know for lack of a better verb hate america. Why are they putting forward narratives. That are not only pernicious but are actually false. There's no question that howard johnson's version of america and the six thousand nineteen projects version america. This is complete nonsense being pedal as though it were true. Why do these people want to destroy the greatest nation in the history of the world. Well i think they have some personal resentment of howard. Zinn nicole hannah jones. Who is the creator of sixteen. Nineteen project have slightly different. Motivations both are promoting a kind of neo marxist version of history howard zinn of course was a one time member of the communist party and his allegiance was to communism and he hated this country and he hoped to foment a communist revolution. Nicole hannah jones from her interviews. And what. I've read about her and things that she has said has this resentment towards this country She believes perhaps going back to her family. that was mistreated because of their race. The black side of famish used biracial believes that this country has not treated her fairly and she believes in off. The fidel castro's cuba. She praises that regime. She she took a trip there and her politics are aligned with the squad of the democratic party. The far left. She wants to see a redistribution of wealth. She wants socialized healthcare.

Sebastian Gorka Believes Gen. Mark Milley Is a 'Dangerous Coward'
"It seems to be a recurring theme of late. The left's gasoline of america. Why here's the perfect example. For four years we were told that this man was a dictator. The donald trump wants to create some kind of banana republic and used the military to stay in power. What's the truth. Did he spy on journalists like obama did. Did he lock up. The sources for those journalists like obama did did he spy did he use the nsa and the cia and the fbi to s- avail the author parthiv presidential campaign. No that's what democrats do the now we have in contravention of what is meant to be the bedrock of our national security establishment which is civilian control of the military. This isn't argentina in the nineteen eighties. This isn't Fidel castro's cuba or franco's spain. The chief of the military isn't a man any uniform in america. The commander in chief ways no uniform. He's a civilian. The military has to take his orders but in contravention of that constitutional order. We have the most senior man in uniform never elected by anybody mark. Milley think that he gets to take the decisions thinking that he gets to obstruct and choose who other members of the cabinet should be. Fat is the definition of a banana republic. That is a threat to the security of all americans irrespective of who you voted for. Perspective of what your personal political proclivities are when a man who has no political legitimacy nanda who according to the national security act of nineteen forty seven according to the us constitution has zero command authority. None the of the junkies has zero command authority. The constitutional mandate the code is clear. He is an advisor on military issues to the incumbent. Commander in chief. Who happens to be the civilian president. Mark milley is a threat to the american republic. And he's clearly not a republican and he clearly does not believe in america. I he is a coward and he's a dangerous coward.

"Reforms with military force upon seeing the red army flex its muscles. Castro suddenly changed his tune and announced that the soviets had been correct to invade czechoslovakia. He openly praised the soviet union once again and eventually. The soviets responded by improving trade with cuba. All was publicly forgiven. Even with soviet relations improving. Castro still struggled to get the cuban economy back on track after abandoning plans for industrialisation castro's regime doubled down on sugar production promising to produce ten million tonnes of sugar in nineteen seventy alone in the lead up to the nineteen seventy harvest. Virtually the whole nation was mobilized to meet the goal mothers children students and white collar workers were all forced to volunteer for the harvest. Castro himself put in four hours a day of agricultural work. Castro said that being short even one pound of the ten million goal would be considered a failure. In fact in the end of cuba fell short. By one point five million tonnes worse cuba's economy actually dropped by between twenty and forty percent in the aftermath of the agricultural failure. Castro admitted that the responsibility for the defeat lay on his and his ministers shoulders. In order to improve the economic situation he announced the introduction of limited market like reforms. He also decided that the entire cuban government needed to be restructured. The intent was to slightly decentralized decision making so that not every resolution had to flow directly from mayo in essence. This was a signal that cuba was adopting. A soviet model where ministries could do their job without the direct supervision of a supreme autocrat but in no way was powered deducted from castro instead castro officially made himself head of state and head of the party in addition to his old position as commander in chief the fact that castro wasn't challenged after the failure of the ten million tonnes promise was a sign of his high popularity in cuba. Despite the many problems he had caused castro had still uplifted hundreds of thousands of cubans. Far off the us and instilled his country with a sense of national pride at the same time. Castro had help from both the soviets and the americans by the mid seventies half of all soviet aid went to cuba. Meanwhile in one thousand nine hundred seventy five president. Gerald ford hoping to improve relations with cuba eased the us's economic sanctions with the economic and political situation at home stable. If not ideal. Castro increased his efforts to become a player on the world stage he wanted cuba to have prestige and influence in the third world countries unaligned with either the united states or the soviet union thus the cuban military became deeply involved in military conflicts in foreign countries like angola. In addition to soldiers cuba sent large numbers of doctors and teachers to underdeveloped nations. He enjoyed the acclaim. Actions brought him and hope to find new allies for a power block to oppose the us by the end of the nineteen seventies. all of castro's international efforts set cuba on course for being the most influential nation throughout the third world. Unfortunately for castro never achieved that goal at the end of nineteen seventy nine. The soviet union invaded afghanistan and castro took their side in the conflict. By siding with the soviets over the afghans castro's reputation among developing nations fell. Meanwhile cuba's relationship with the soviet union went through an even more drastic change during the nineteen eighty s. in nineteen eighty-five. Mikhail gorbachev became the general secretary of the communist party of the soviet union recognizing that the eastern bloc had fallen behind the west. He initiated a series of reforms to revitalize the nation the first glasnost was a policy of openly and frankly discussing economic and political realities the second para striker was an attempt to introduce market like reforms into the economy. Castro was apprehensive of glasnost and perestroika. He suspected that they would destroy the system. They intended to save by exposing it to capitalist deprivations. Instead castro initiated his own policy of rectify cossio own rather than a radical attempt at something new defeat cossio was a return to the past market like reforms which had been introduced in the seventies or rolled back in favor of centralized planning and control castro once again consolidated decision making under his direct supervision. Castro's suspicions about glasnost and perestroika proved accurate. Thanks in large part to these reforms the soviet union began to collapse around nineteen eighty nine and was completely gone by nineteen ninety-one the disintegration of cuba's oldest and most important ally was nearly catastrophic. The cuban economy was closely tied to the soviet union. The country lost around eighty percent of his imports and his gdp reportedly fell around thirty four percent. Let's surprisingly cuba didn't collapse. According to scare it borders on a miracle that despite all the prophecies the crisis did not produce social unrest in cuba. This was partly due to the iron grip of the security apparatus. Another reason was probably the widespread feeling of resignation to keep cuba float. In nineteen ninety-one castro enacted the perio espec- all or special period. Rationing was intensified so that cubans frequently had to go without essentials like cooking oil vegetables soap and toilet paper unemployment remained high and even those who were employed often. Couldn't come to work because they had to stand for hours waiting in line for basic commodities without gas for tractors farmers had to return to using ox carts which only heard about cultural output further. As was the case in most communist countries facing major economic downturns capitalist reforms were introduced some small businesses such as family owned restaurants were allowed to open tourism and biotechnology exports.

"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. Fidel castro tengo with the united states. And the next time. Castro dared the american superpower. His gamble would bring the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation.

"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.

Nco teesta was feeling the political pressure after years of violent suppression of dissidents. What he didn't realise was that by freeing castro he was sealing his own fate a twenty nine year old. Castro was still intent on starting a revolution but he didn't trust the batista so he was going to have to do it while in exile when castro arrived in mexico in july nineteen fifty five. He had nothing no money. No men his once. Twelve hundred strong revolutionary army now consisted of just him and his brother rahul. The future of the revolutions seem bleak but soon after his arrival castro made new allies. Most prominent among them was a twenty seven year old. Argentinian with basma. His name was arnesto guevarra but his friends called him by an interjection. Common in argentina. J. j. was also in mexico to lick his wounds a year earlier. He had witnessed firsthand. How the c. I. a. engineer the overthrow of the democratically elected government in guatemala. All in the name of stopping communism and keeping banana prices low and although he was not a cuban nationalist like castro the marxist che was more than happy to fight against capitalist dispute like batista he and castro became close friends and in time. Chase brand of marxism would have a profound effect on the cuban revolution. And castro's own ideology for now though. The anti batista buddies had to find a way to put ideas into practice. One of the first things they needed to do was raise some cash so castro traveled to the us seeking out cuban exiles who could bank roll his revolution. He managed to raise nine thousand dollars. Or roughly eighty eight thousand dollars in today's money. Unfortunately that wasn't going to be enough. So castro turned to an unusual benefactor former cuban president carlos prio soak across the very man batista deposed prio secured one hundred thousand dollars worth nearly a million today with the hope of becoming. Powerful again once castro. One castro wasn't so sure about that but at least now he had the money he needed to go. After batista in the fall of nineteen fifty-six castro secured a boat dubbed the grandmother and recruited eighty-one men arming them with rifles and submachine guns on november twenty fifth castro and his men set sail seven clumsy vomit strewn days at sea. The grandmother crash landed in the swamps of cuba's southern orientate province castro. Pick the same landing spot where his hero. Jose marti had landed decades earlier during his own revolution. The revolution had come home. Castro's group trudged their way through the heavily forested sierra maestra mountain range on december fifth a few days after making landfall an army unit discovered them and opened fire. Several revolutionaries were shot including jay. Who took a bullet to the shoulder. Those who survived scattered into the jungle. Castro into associates found themselves hiding in a sugar-cane field for five days. It seemed as if the revolution was about to end before it even started but castro refused to admit defeat. He kept himself motivated and sane by whispering endlessly about his plans for the future of cuba. Castro later joked. I was commander in chief of myself and to others but after those five lonely days castro and his men hoped the coast was clear. They came out of hiding once more trekking through the mountains. They arrived at the rendezvous a small farm on december sixteenth over the next couple of weeks. A few more half dead stragglers stumbled onto the far when his army ballooned to eight. Castro enthusiastically proclaimed now. We have won the war. The days.

"In cuba wasn't finished martin had died in eighteen ninety-five before the united states intervened to the cuban war for independence. Though spain was driven out of cuba the united states it's way in and virtually turned the nascent country into a protectorate under the platt amendment in the cuban constitution. The us could intervene. Militarily whenever it wished at the same time the platt amendment strengthened the island's ties to american businesses unsurprisingly. The us business presence came at the expense of ordinary cubans according to journalist and author volker skier by the time that fidel castro was born. Two thirds of cuba's agriculture was in north american ownership economically. Cuba was deeply tied to the united states. And although the platt amendment was revoked by franklin d roosevelt in one thousand nine hundred eighty four. The us continued to interfere with cuban affairs. The meddling of washington the frustration at the limited changes brought by the war of independence and the heroic example of marquee. All left a deep impression on the young castro as he headed to university in one thousand nine hundred forty five nineteen year old castro enrolled at havana university in order to study law. But if he thought his time in law school would consist of quiet study. he was rudely mistaken. Many college campuses are beehives of political activity but vana university politics had a deadly. The university was a battleground between various student political organisations. The groups were in fact little more than gangs of men and has castro quickly discovered. They were used by the political establishment. Even the president of cuba to carry out assassinations. Castro said that he was fairly ignorant about contemporary politics before he came to havana university but like many revolutionaries once he arrived he fell right into the radical chaos. Not by joining the violent gangs nor the communist party instead. Castro stayed independent. His political philosophy was still heavily influenced by jose martinez. But that didn't mean he stayed out of their brawls. He loved getting into fistfights as a means of proving his masculinity and making a name for himself according to author and journalist tad schultz at havana university. Castro was engaged in creating a personal reputation and myth as rapidly and as dramatically as possible exhibiting both his flair for the spectacular and his attraction to the limelight. When exactly. Castro decided that he would be jose martinez. Successor is unclear but havana university. He started working toward that goal. Whether or not he realized it. And not just by showing off in fistfights. Castro was carving out his own nisha amongst havana's student activists and he began to speak out against the corrupt cuban government his speeches were often unreasonably long but full of passion and pizazz. He became popular enough that even newspapers published articles about him. Castro grew increasingly fiery and agitated though. He lacked subtlety once at a meeting between students. And cuban president ramon grau castro suggested simply grabbing the president and throwing him off a balcony. Luckily a friend convinced him to abandon the idea. By the late nineteen forties. Castro had joined the partito. Popolare kumano a nationalist and anti imperialist political party in nineteen fifty. He finished law school. And for the next few years he juggled his burgeoning law career with political agitation. By the start of the nineteen fifties. Castro decided that perhaps he should run for public office and what better time than the upcoming summer. Elections of nineteen fifty two or so he thought unfortunately cuba's days of democracy where over as dictators listeners will recall in march one thousand nine hundred fifty two former president full hensel batista led a military coup and seized power and all because he was hauling in third place in power batista cancelled elections and made himself dictator. Cuba's government became more oppressive and crooked. Anyone who spoke out was arrested tortured and killed. Castro was in a sense. Not only was this. The opposite of what martine had envisioned for his country. It was ruining castro's chance to run for office so a few days after batista seized power. Castro declared his intention to fight the new regime and as he put it. If batista grabbed power by force he must be thrown out by force. Batista's coup had turned castro into a full time. Revolutionary committed to overthrowing the new dictator within weeks. Castro had organized cells of guerrilla fighters set up a newspaper and established an underground radio station after a little over a year. He had twelve hundred men at his command. In keeping with his politics up to this point castro's goal was to use his group to free cuba. An implement jose marti style reforms. He was starting to lean further to the left but he was not trying to lead a proletarian revolution. In fact there was no love lost between castro and the communists at the time. Castro didn't trust the communists because some were linked to batista and the communists saw castro as a maverick who dismissed the core tenets of marxism leninism. But a lack of communist support didn't mean castro wasn't ready to launch an attack on the batista regime in order to topple batista. Castro decided on a bold almost insane plan. Seize control of the moncada barracks in santiago day. Kuba castro's -ssume that once he doled out the fortress's weapons to the masses. They would rise up and overthrow the regime. The storming of the moncada barracks took place on july twenty. Sixth nineteen fifty three castro led a revolutionary army of one hundred and eleven men and two women armed with twenty two caliber hunting rifles and decked out in poorly fitted uniforms. Another twenty seven or so. Were also getting ready to ambush the camel barracks which were further west once. The first group arrived at the moncada barracks. The rebels were greeted by seven hundred professional soldiers. Castro's glorious assault was a complete disaster. The soldiers at moncada unleashed a withering fusillade an easily routed the revolutionaries eight of castro's men were killed in the fight but those that were captured instead fared even worse. Batista didn't directly order the prisoners mutilation but he gave his men carte blanche to do what they wanted. The mon soldiers tortured sixty one rebels to death. By having their eyes genitals and other body parts torn from them castro himself escaped and fled to the sierra maestra mountains meanwhile photographs of those mutilated corpses were published in a magazine shocking the public. It was an appalling loss. But there was upshot. Many cubans were horrified and outraged. By the moncada soldiers brutality those killed became martyrs and support.

Pennzoil performance line nick. Good morning first thing. Just the response in and around the organization on the news zubin. Everybody's just depressed excited leading into the draft. And in the fact that wiseman was there at number two he was number one on their board and and they were just really looking forward to having steph klay draymond and then plugging in wiseman and seeing what we can give them and then they range of emotions in those couple of hours before the draft and then after the draft they really couldn't even celebrate. Everybody was so sad about clay. I mean he is the guy behind the scenes with all the star power in that locker room that sets the tone for everybody else. And that's why kerr and all those players they love it and so to know that he's going to be out again for another year which just crushing for. Everybody involved nikki. Give us an insight. Into how bob myers and company dealt with the news of klay thompson literally hours before the nba draft that make their decision challenging more challenging looking at other guys like lamelo ball considering he was going to be available. Jay bob address that right afterwards instead. Look wiseman was our guy if he was there we were taken him and obviously if the emotions involved right before the big or unprecedented we. We really never seen anything like it. Before where a star player who has won titles in an organization gets another serious injury right before you gotta make a huge selection for your future but all along when you talk to people in the organization they love what wise men could give them and they're confident that once he gets into their system playing and learning alongside draymond that he can be maybe that bridge or potentially down the line Tracey's nobody knows for sure but wiseman all along was their guy in.

This is terrorism by these these wankers on And this ad is completely crazy. It is mostly black and white newsreel footage from 1959, the Castro communist Cuban revolution against the Batista regime. And then they lined up landowners against walls and Che Guevara, one of their heroes oversaw the mass murder of Cubans of successful people. And it's been a loser prison ship ever since Barack Obama gave them everything they wanted posed for pictures in front of giant Che Guevara. Murals on the sides of buildings on got nothing for political prisoners or the women in white or Anything anything at all. Let me play this for black and white. And they have one have a Spanish language version because they're trying to terrorise Spanish speaking voters in Florida and particular Cuban American voters in Florida. By saying Trump is the real Castro here Now these guys were the Socialists. We know this. This is the kind of this is what Communists do in terms of propaganda. This kind of propaganda you don't see in the United States of America. Except now you do because they hate trump so much. They're so crazy. Michael, Let's Let's play this. There's one minute. There's one minute add black and white old newsreel footage of of Cubans Taliban holding up pictures of Fidel Castro. And then they've got film footage here of Castro's people check, whereas people standing men up against walls and shooting him through the head and the brains splash against the wall behind him, and then another guy's So let's listen to this ad. If you oceans authoritarians all start the same way. Most Feli strutting like Fidel Castro, with Nikita Khrushchev prancing before during crowds, promises of prosperity and justice Castro speaking then the persecution, faith in descent.

Biden the only man on campaign trail hits critical swing states
"As. President Donald Trump recovers from the corona virus Joe Biden is capitalizing on having the campaign trail largely to himself by hitting critical swing states and investing in Longtime Republican bastions that he hopes might expand his path to victory. The Democratic presidential nominee May t second trip to Florida in little over two weeks on. Monday. Is Visit to Miami was designed to encroach on some of trump's turf even swinging through little Havana a typically conservative area known for its staunch opposition to the communist government that Fidel Castro installed in. Cuba. He'll follow up with a trip later, this week to Arizona which hasn't backed Democratic presidential candidate since Nineteen ninety-six Biden is completing the expanded campaign travel with late stage at push reserving more than six million dollars in television airtime in Texas for decades deeply read through the end of October. Biden's advisers say they've been confident for months. They can expand the electoral map while never wavering from their promise to have their candidate travel only when local health guidelines allowed for it adhering to that plan is allowed them to expand into other parts of the country at the most critical of moments speaking yesterday in. Little Havana Biden was careful to continue to wish trump a speedy recovery but also criticized his administration's response to the pandemic. I was glad to see the president speaking and recording videos over the weekend. Biden said now that he's busy tweeting campaign messages I'd encourage him to do this. Listen to the scientists.
Inside Jimmy Butlers Psyche
"Nick for Dell I WANNA start in a very important place here. The question that everyone I think is obsessing about at this point in the NBA playoffs. What the Hell is going on with this coffee business that Jimmy Butler is running. Twenty Bucks Cup twenty bucks it is some high level stuff from everybody who has had had a taste of big face coffey. Why is this guy selling coffee? Why is this happening because he can Pablo Nick Fidel is a staff writer for ESPN WHO's been covering Jimmy Butler ever since he entered the League in two thousand eleven this guy brought a French press with him into the bubble because he wanted to make sure that he had the very best coffee that there was. So in true entrepreneurs style. Jimmy is charging twenty bucks a pop cash only as he's said repeatedly. Last couple of months to teammates or whoever else wants the show up and and give them some money because I can't get coffee nowhere here that's my bump it up to thirty bucks a cup just depends people here can afford it. So anybody complaining. Through the years it's only the best for Jimmy, Butler on a lot of levels in in the coffee is the latest example of that. So we're GONNA take a deep dive with you into Jimmy Butler today but let's start with the most recent stuff because they're coming off this Saturday night loss against the Celtics they still have a two one series lead game four is Wednesday night but on Saturday night in game three, the heath tendency to get behind early finally did catch up with them and in the final minute when they're flirting with yet another potential comeback. We saw Mr. big face coffey himself sitting on the bench. Usually, in these situations, look beyond the floor and I don't know of Jimmy Barbara asked out or injury does not back in the defensive possession. Especially Butler. Meeting offense who In the same reasoning behind. So. What was going on there? Eric's bolster said flat out that. He's fine. There wasn't an issue. Babo I've watched Jimmy Butler. For years and years to take him off the Florida eighty point is a struggle because of how bad he wants to be out there but to take him off the floor at the end of a playoff game. I just wondering if if there's something lingering that we should all keep an eye on but. In fairness the Spoelstra he did have a bunch of shooters on the floor, and I, know Jimmy has hit some big three's over the course of the playoff bubble the last few weeks but that is not a strength of his game. So maybe everybody is telling the truth and maybe Jimmy's GonNa be fine but my Jimmy radar went off at the end of that game big time because you you just can't take him out he wants to be in there until the very, very end. So. Certainly, certainly something to keep an eye on. That is absolutely something to monitor, but prior to all that happening game three nick in this series, and in these playoffs, the Miami Heat have been surprisingly impressive as a five seed. They're currently ten and two in the playoffs, and with this two to one lead, they still have over the Celtics. Their hands are still on the steering wheel and the one guy steering all of it. The one guy at the center of these comebacks gave them that lead is Jimmy Butler. So. When we look at Butler's clutch moments so far. Which one stick out to you. WHO As far as Jimmy in this series. Those first few shots. Down, the stretch in game one. Everybody's focused on Bam's block and it really is one of the best there's ever been. Sky. With the block and rejection. That is a ridiculous defensive play. Aside. From that, you're watching. Pablo. Early in those games especially in the first one, they're just throwing body after body after body. Jimmy. And in the fourth quarter, he's making tough shot after tough shot. Shot Praise God Jimmy Butler giving Miami the lead with twenty two seconds to go. Butler against Tatum drives them Deep Pang. Shot up and then and one Jimmy Puckett's delivering again, twelve seconds to go over time you start seeing steals and gave to your like there's no way in the world that he would have won that game without him poked away by Jimmy Butler all the way down the other end Butler leaves it and crowder puts it in Jimmy Butler in the last four minutes delivering for the heat. Heroes made some shots and and drag it has been there over and over but it's Jimmy who is setting the tone.
Biden's V.P. Pick Is Said to Be Imminent
"Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has reportedly narrowed the list of candidates to be his running mate. There are three leading contenders early front runner Kamala Harris. Her stock dropped slightly following loyalty questions following her attacks on Biden during the first Democratic debate. Also California Congresswoman Karen Bass, the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus. She recently tried to clarify her position on Cuba and Fidel Castro. The Trump campaign is zeroed in on her past trips and former national security adviser Susan Rice. She sold her Netflix shares last week, causing speculation she's getting closer to the top Senators Elizabeth Warren and Tammy Duckworth's are also still in the running along with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Experts think Biden's choice will both shape the future of the party and be the smallest possible Target for president Trump Jackie Heinrich reports. The announcement is expected mid week
Joe Biden's Potential Running Mate: Who Is Karen Bass?
"Campaign Campaign 2020. 2020. We We don't don't have have long long to to wait wait for for Joe Joe Biden Biden to to announce announce his his running running mate. mate. It's It's expected expected to to happen happen next next week. week. As As the the list list is is narrowed. narrowed. California California Democratic Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass is considered a key contender. She's 66 chairs the Congressional Black Caucus. We talk about Bass with Washington Post political analyst and data columnist David Beiler, who has continued his Siri's looking at various potential Biden. Runningmate. Karen Bass would be governing choice rather than election choice. You know, she's a representative from California, California is not exactly a swing state so she doesn't have exactly those advantages. But her advantages would really come into play. Actually, when buying is in office so fast is widely known as someone who is a compromiser who sort of an incrementalist, not someone who is necessarily a purist, which really sets with Biden's governing style. He talks a lot about wanting to negotiate and compromise with the Republicans as much as possible. She is the head of the Congressional Black Caucus. On DSO. Dominating paths would be a real nod to multiple different groups that have been important to the buying campaign. There's black women who are the most Democratic demographic group in the country. There are black congressional leaders like Jim Clyburn, who helped revive Biden's campaign when it was really on the ropes in late February of this year. Andi. She's someone who I think you've seen in recent interviews has some instincts that are a little bit Biden esque When asked about the defund the police slogan she sort of did to step that. I think you reminded me. A fine one was to say, I don't like defund the police as a slogan, which is smart because that collection of words does not pull well. At the same time, we're sort of able to say they're these elements of the plans that I support. And those are elements of the plans that her constituents like so she kind of has a lot of stylistic things and a lot of talents and abilities that I think makes her sort of governing pick if you well, you alluded to this about the fact that she's from California, and you're not gonna get a Republican victory in California at least on this level. Is that the one downside to abiding bass ticket or are there others? I think the other downside is that the vetting Been relatively minimal compared to some of the other candidates. Now, Obviously, the buying campaign is doing their own betting with every candidate right now, and you know, putting him through the paces and seeing if there's something going on That they wouldn't want on their ticket. But Bass within the last couple months has come under fire for remarks where she called Fidel Castro commandant and Hef and sort of had a tone that lot of other people. Democrats from Florida in particular did not appreciate so the question with passes. Is there more baggage? When you look at someone like Kamala Harris or Elizabeth Warren? They've already been through the wringer and a presidential primary. Susan Rice has already gone through a Senate confirmation hearing. So the question with bass is also just Is there anything that you don't know that might be harmful, and the answer might be know that by knows everything and that there's nothing else there. But You know, there's some amount of risk in a pick that hasn't been in the public eye so much. David Beiler, political analysts and data columnist for The Washington Post, joining us on Skype.

Florida Rep. Val Demings on Her Biden Endorsement
"Over the last two years congresswoman. Val demings of Florida has had a front row seat to history. She serves on the House. Intelligence Committee the House Judiciary Committee and she was one of the seven house. Impeachment managers who argued for the conviction of President Trump. And now demings name is being bandied about as a possible vice presidential nominee is she. I totally forgot to ask her about her Harley but I did ask her about trump Florida her support of Joe Biden and yes whether she wanted to be considered for vice president here at all right now congresswoman bowel demings. Thank you very much. For being on the PODCAST. It's great to be with you. So let's just jump right on in you endorsed. Vice President Biden. You are from Florida can he carry Florida In November can a Democrat. Win Florida in November. I have no doubt that a Democrat can win Florida the numbers and Florida's support that But what we're facing assist a matter of turnout and so our job is to make sure that we turn Democratic voters out when we looked at Super Tuesday I think if we watched the voters and listen to the voters the voters are deciding and I thank on Super Tuesday. They were strong. They were powerful. I think they sent a clear message about who they believe can lead our country and move a democratic agenda forward. We saw every demographic turn out and as you know Florida's a very diverse state And I think if what has happened what happened on. Super Tuesday is any indication of what will happen to in Florida's primary. I think that we're going to be in really good shape. Now I'd sort of bounce ahead I did mention you. Endorse Vice President Biden. But there's still contest right now. There's a bird contest you know what what I just feel so hopeful about. We know what we have experienced the last three years almost four now and there is no way. American families can go through another four years of what we've seen And so you know when I look at the democratic feeling as you all know several of my colleagues were in that race what I knew and we heard it quite a bit but I believed it to be true is that anyone on the democratic side would be better than what we have and now we're basically down to two individuals who. I believe if you look at what they believe in what they fought for. Then certainly Will be in better shape. I just happen to believe that one of them Vice President Biden really is the want to carry the agenda forward and really Unify our country. Which is so desperately needed right now. How damaging was it or is it to Senator Sanders. The comments that came out from the the old video of him praising Fidel Castro and then even his defense of his comments about Fidel Castro again from a Florida Lens was that damaging to his effort. Well again you've listened to the people and I think the people and those who represent them spoke loudly and clearly and I won't certainly will not guess about what Senator Sanders Sarah what he meant to say but what I do know. Is that several people who live in our very diverse state. Were upset by those comments. And so you know we're in the middle of a race. We're going to let the let full radiance to But I think you know when you look at Vice President Biden. He has been in the trenches fighting for issues that we care about for a long time fighting for issues that before it was popular quite frankly to fight for them like marriage. Equality issues like climate control. Certainly he's been a unifier along the way and I love what Whip Clyburn said I think most of all he said we know Joe but more important Joe knows us and that's because he's been there fighting for those issues and building those relationships longtime he didn't wait until he decided to run for the most powerful position In the country and so. I think like I said I just. I go back to watch the voters I know. There's a lot of talk about the establishment. I quite frankly find that I am not quite sure what that means when voters turn out in. Great numbers We certainly know how the African American turnout was led by South Carolina I don't know what the establishment means but I certainly know what people go to the polls mean and we saw

"Of Fidel he didn't disappoint in February nineteen sixty two Lansdale provided a document titled possible actions to provoke wrasse or disrupt Cuba some of the actions are pretty good summer quite silly and some are downright the book is nuking the moon by Vince moreover this is Tom Hartman program live from from my my office here in my home in Portland Oregon and you know telecommuting here in the top story over rawstory coronavirus funding held up by G. O. P. around abortion Republicans are holding up progress on legislation for corona virus because of abortion Bloomberg news reporter Erik Wasson reported that the Republican Party wants language about the Hyde amendment he tweeted a key sticking point in talks appears to be the Republican demands to include Hyde amendment language in the bill to prevent federal funding from being used for abortion where appropriate money to help people and and Baylor medical infrastructure around the crown of iris and we've got to add language to this that says oh and by the way none of this can be used for abortion and so be on the Twitter sphere all I see saving fetuses over actual wives again and tell me who is pro life oppressing women is always relevant to the G. O. P. always and of course the GOP does this they can pound sand yeah I would say at the very least so I remember that go for she was on Belmar show a couple weeks ago and she maybe a month or three ago she published a piece in politico that I found actually fascinated I'd I I talked about on this program I share it with you and when she suggested that there basically are there's no such thing as a swing voter yeah there are people who will from time to time vote you know little seen it and then they they they have been voted for Obama and then they voted for trump but they're not really swing voters they have something very specific in mind that they're looking for and in this election and in the last few elections in particular twenty sixteen election her surgeon was that the personal thing that people in America are voting for is change they want the system to start working for the people instead of just for the fat cats now back in twenty fourteen a couple researchers at Columbia northwestern university's Martin gallons and bad Benjamin page discovered that all the way back to around the late nineties early two thousands that if you looked at public opinion surveys about what the bottom ninety percent of Americans wanted to have happen legislatively and compared that with the actual legislation that passed there was no relationship between the two these somewhere in the late eighties early nineties or or maybe even the late nineties but you know they didn't they didn't go back to quantify the exact start point but certainly for the last twenty years the legislation that gets passed through Congress does not reflect the desires of the vast majority of Americans instead what it does reflect the desires of the top one percent their interests their their social interests their political interests their economic interests are consistently made into law but the interest of the bottom the you know the the the bottom ninety percent of us now which is a good arguments were were literally no longer Democratic Republic because in a democracy I mean the whole definition of democracy of functional definition is that what the people want is what the government does that's why you have the we the people first three words of the of the preamble of the constitution and the declaration of independence as I recall and so yeah this is this is what a democracy is an it's not us anymore and people this people in only known intuitively they noted got level that's why when Donald Trump got up in twenty fifteen and he said the system is rigged it's not working for you anymore he says make me president and I'm gonna raise the taxes on these rich people and lower the taxes are working class people is I'm gonna take such a hit I would take such a bath I would be hurt so bad but I'd small right thing to do for my country I really and he got up on that stage and he said do you know I'm the only person on this entire stage always other Republicans I'm the only one who will not cut social security and Medicare of course he has proposed cutting it and every single one of his budget that he's got the staff for both agencies in every single year he and the Republicans I mean he was lying through his teeth and all this stuff he said I'm a guy is gonna bring your homes your jobs back home from China wrong actually there's been more outsourcing since he's become president yeah he had some terracing now they interrupted some a few things button short term and in fact now yeah I just got an email from a pharmacy that I've used over the years online pharmacy and it can actually Canadian pharmacy and they say that they in their email they point out that all the drugs and all the raw materials for the drugs in all but the vast majority the drugs sold in North America the United States and Canada actually made in China what appeals are pressed in India but the raw ingredients are are all coming out of China and the the supply chain disruptions the associated with the virus out of China and **** in courting is not the word that they use what they use what they said is you know there are export limits because China wants drugs to be available for its own population first and foremost are they represent the possibility of shortages particularly with important pharmaceuticals so you know this is the amount that ago two months ago I was saying get a ninety day supply whatever you take you know if it's important to so but anyway back to back to what people vote for some ritual but Culver was saying basically people want change they want the country to work for them again what is that that's that's basically a populist message and that's what trump and it's part of why he's in the White House I mean the biggest part of why he's right in the White House is he had a little bit of help from some some billionaire oligarchs and foreign countries a bit of Saudi Arabia and Russia apparently the top of the list and that he he you know he lied through his teeth and he had ripped the Republican party's in Wisconsin Michigan Pennsylvania Ohio I engaging in massive voter suppression throwing hundreds of thousands of people and every single one of those states mostly people mostly black people in so in urban areas off the voting rolls and we just saw this this week or the mayor of Kansas city is black showed up to vote where he's voted for every year for for every week in a last old town elections board of himself four times and he wasn't on the voter rolls anymore Missouri took him off the rolls while they got a good Republican secretary of state so they would be you know who this is why the Republicans do this but the bottom line she was saying this is what people want and so there's this really interesting conversation with her that it is popping up in a in a bunch of different sites and I'm sorry I don't have my normal printer here side I did I was able to print the whole article out it wouldn't it wouldn't print right so I just took a piece of it so I can't tell you where this came from but you should be able to find it fairly easily with the search on her name B. I. TCO C. O. F. E. R. I believe it is actually I can tell you it is B. I. T. T. C. O. F. E. R. Rachel RAC AGL Hey how she what she says is that many voters especially those independents and swing voters are very susceptible to negative campaigns Bernie has a weakness in that regard because it's going to be supported by a party that is an apt at messaging well that's gonna be the case whether it's burning or Joe right and she goes on to say those who oppose Bernie Sanders and think you could do in the party are overlooking how Bernie Sanders is the only present the one presidential candidate primary candidates who can negate Donald trump's populist advantage in terms of messaging is probably a major disadvantage to go into the general election with the Washington establishment candidate such as Joe Biden this is Rachel but cover Obama to trump voters are going to support trump in that contest with Biden it's an almost automatic if the Democrats win very Sanders able real opportunity when those voters the election it was messaging possibility.
The 1992 Little League World Series Scandal
"Event the International Youth Sports while it might Okun Image of fun and innocence throughout its seventy three year history. The tournament has been plagued by scandal and on the afternoon of August. Twenty Ninth Nineteen Ninety. Two as spectators watched the Filipino team celebrating on the field after clobbering their American opponents. They couldn't shake the uneasy feeling that something about the situation didn't feel quite right. Welcome to sports criminals. Apar- cast original. This is the third episode in our March Madness. Special this month. We're counting down the top thirty one sports scandals from nineteen ninety. Two Thousand Twenty. I'm Carter Roy and I'm Tim Johnson in today's episode. We're going back to nineteen ninety two and the Little League World Series Scandal. Zamboanga city located on a small remote island in the Philippines is most famous for its canned sardine industry but in nineteen ninety two. It was the city's Little League Baseball team that caught the world's attention the team from Zamboanga breezed through the World Series Tournament. Demolishing everyone in its path until trouncing a squad from Long Beach California in the championship. Game fifteen to four from a gold medal in boxing thirty years before the boys victory represented the most significant athletic achievement. In the country's history they returned to the Philippines as heroes where President Fidel Ramos through them. A parade in the capital city and awarded them over forty dollars in scholarship money. Nearly everyone in the country celebrated the team's victory everyone except journalist Al Mendoza as a journalist. Mendoza's job was to tell the truth. Which wasn't always easy in a country like the Philippines twenty years before dictator Ferdinand Marcos had banned anything beyond state-sanctioned news and only recently after a regime change had independent news outlets resumed operation. Just a day. After the team's Victory Parade Mendoza published a column in the daily Enquirer with the heading mothers. How old are your children? He not only cast doubt on the ages of the players from Zamboanga City. But whether they were actually from the small town as they claimed to qualify for the Little League world series players must be between ten and twelve years old and the player must live within the geographic boundary of the town or city that his or her team represents for example. Boy From Austin Texas. Can't play on team from Dallas. Ten to twelve is also a tricky age because of the disparity and boys sizes and appearance at that age some of almost reach their adult height will others are still under five feet tall to Mendoza and many others the Filipino players looked too and too poised for boys that age after he published his column. The American League president fact sheet of questions to his counterpart in the Philippines to confirm the players were the correct age and if they were all from Zamboanga City in his response the Filipino. Little League president declared that all the players were of legal age but admitted that several from outside Zamboanga city had been added to the roster because the original players weren't able allowed to travel to the United States. He explained that Zamboanga City is a very rural area and that many of the boys were needed to work on their parents farms. Others had been too afraid to fly. He also maintained that if the substitution hadn't been made the original team from Zamboanga City would have beaten the Americans by twice as much but days later Mendoza and his colleagues revealed that excluding the eight players added to the roster from other cities the six players actually from Zamboanga city. Were all over. Asia anywhere from thirteen to fifteen years old and had assumed the identities of younger boys in town that the team had replaced their original manager with coach from Manila. A coach who couldn't even speak or understand the dialect used in Zamboanga City. Furthermore the parents of the overage athletes had also assumed false identities in an effort to maintain the ruse. Maybe the Little League Baseball could overlook the replacement of a few kids who were too scared to fly but when it came to systematic fraud perpetrated by multiple generations. They had no choice but to strip the Filipino team of its title and awarded to the boys from

"About Fidel Castro he destroyed freedoms in that country he played picks winners and losers and kill them and put them in prison forever you don't give a Pat on the back for anything it's funny the truth is truth sorry if you want if somebody wants to all of those congresspeople that you mentioned just so happen to be supporting other candidates just accidentally knocked out once in a while you know the truth is the truth and that's what happened in the first two years of the Castro regime what is the answer you get from thirty centers there welcome to the box section show everybody you would think that Bernie Sanders might take the off ramp here that CNN was clearly clearly providing him right there that he could walk away from his comments about the literacy program by the way the literacy of the Cuban people went from somewhere in the mid seventy percentile range to like maybe ninety percent and that was at the cost of the enslavement of the entire island the appropriation of not just rich people but middle class people's property indoctrination programs master tension mass executions torture brutalization and yes huge numbers of people risking death as a Cuban immigrant to this country now a proud American explained it to me always remember that people were not just willing to risk their own lives but fathers the mothers were willing to get on rickety rafts homemade homemade rafts and risk the possibility of watching their children drown before them or their children giving my sharks that's how desperate they were to get off of this island that Bernie Sanders things integrate literacy program now we're not overstating this this this is no longer that point in conservative media you say come on is this is this man to just get a rise out of people or is there a little bit of media exaggeration going on here we have a socialist who is now on a glide path to becoming the democratic nominee for the presidency and not only does he not hide the fact it is a social is quite open about it obviously but he won't even repudiate his previous warm comments about some of the most awful to tell a turn regimes on the planet and this guy wants to be in charge of the executive branch of the United States government in less than a year I think it's a big deal I think we can all of you this is something that is worthy of our attention and our time and just remember this as scary as it is the Democrat corporate media at the CNN MSNBC New York times washing post industrial complex they'll they'll find some way to push Sanders on us they they don't care anybody but trump anyone who they think will give them some of what they want even if it means a complete abandonment of some of the core principles of this country for now well really since the beginning and if you look at individual rights and constitutional the constitutional restraint on government and then you look at what the Sanders administration is already proposing to do it's effectively at war with the founding principles of this country he wants to turn us into a all that's right kind of like what Obama said fundamentally transform the country that was his promise and now Sanders looks to finish finish that process this is troubling to say the least it's something that we should take very seriously we have to take it very seriously Bernie Sanders also takes all the wrong lessons from history and from other models around the world all of the wrong models he somehow has managed to spend his entire adult life distilling the incorrect lessons of state control authoritarianism intervention by government authorities in the markets all the wrong lessons that that's really his his magic power he's always he's like Joe Biden on foreign policy to always get it wrong Bernie Sanders on the market I don't what creates wealth and prosperity for all people always gets it wrong all he knows how to do is class warfare agitation he doesn't even know how to implement that class were for agitation after remember that he has even had experience at the controls he's just a loud voice on the corner yelling about millionaires and billionaires in all of golf X. and you're going to have free this and free and they're all going to be paid for by the rich except well everyone's going to pay for it there aren't enough rich people to pay for the things that brace sent center says that he wants I've had a number of jobs in the private sector and the people that I have worked for at least the owners of the companies I work for they have been wealthy I've never had a I've never had a job that Bernie Sanders would offer me right I I've been I I've never worked for somebody who Bernie Sanders we would be able to do anything other than extract from so he's he's demonisation of the people that are actual job creators is counterproductive in the most clear and the most the most evident ways he he simply does not care though he's going to continue with this and he also knows that he has to bow to the wokeness of the left which is suppose is unsurprising here's what he says about who is vice president for example will be played club ten your question is about a vice presidential part of the ticket all the answers we will do that at all but it's a little bit presumptuous right now I will tell you one thing though all you know is that person will not be an old white guys out I can say in all seriousness our cabinet an hour in ministration will very intentionally looks like America important all of our people see themselves reflected in the administration of the president of the United States and we will absolutely do that this from a guy who is really the oldest of white guys running for the presidency from what is I believe the widest single state in the United States but now he's Mr diversity because he thinks he has to be in the democratic primary so the media can go along with all this to look like they're not selling out whatever principles they pretend to have how's he going to pay for all this we'll figure it out I mean this is really become a common talking point left to pay for a hundred trillion dollars will come from somewhere keep in mind right now people might have to consider the possibility that we are facing because of because of manufacturing sure the manufacturing stoppages and supply chain shortages a change in global GDP as a result of corona virus that's a route that's a real concern I don't know if it will happen that's a real concern and you also have twenty three trillion dollars or so of U. S. dad already piled up there are economic ramifications are happening all the time from fat and Bernie Sanders suggesting let's just make it a hundred trillion dollars I mean he is he is walking into a a room full of flammable material and he's got a flamethrower in his hands and he's just saying what could go wrong this is really something that we all have to take very seriously I did not think of Joe Biden became president you weren't going to have a you know the massive destruction of wealth that you would have under under a Sanders presidency let's understand this by inviting would be I would have done some bad Democrats things in a wooden certainly would have been as good as trump nowhere near it but the error how each sort of go with what the corporate interests and the Democrat donor class once on some things Bernie Sanders it's not clear the corporate donor class can control him at all and it's also not clear that he even really understands the ramifications of what he says he wants to do he's claiming for example that we'll just figure out how to pay for things when we decide that we're gonna pay for play twelve mark there is there is a lot of detail here you can look for for yourselves on the website it is not matching the price tag that some put it about thirty trillion dollars for the Medicare for all transition you do have lots of different ideas in here I'm not saying you don't know how much you get about halfway there the question becomes how do you get the rest of the world there was a study for finals.

Palace was a dazzling spun. Sugar White with stained glass windows and seating for thousand what So before the revolution the Cuban people loved quote Howard. Johnson's ice cream astro told a visiting journalist. Shortly after Coppola opened referring to the then conic American brand quote. This is our way of showing. We can do everything better than the Americans. Coppola scillies is a state run ice cream parlor which to this day employs more than four hundred workers and serves four thousand two hundred fifty the US gallons of ice cream a day to about thirty five thousand customers a day so time they were like we're going to have the best ice cream in the world. They had like twenty five flavors flavors. It was super cheap. Oh come you would order like five scoops of ice cream. At a time they would call it like basically a salad like on Salata like a we kind of get yourself like five different scoop super cheap so nowadays they don't have nearly as many flavors and apparently the quality's not as good as it was when cashier was office. But but like it's still there and it's a it's a tourist spot to five thousand people at one ice cream parlor. Inundate people like Santa Line for hours to get to go against this place cappella so good news but as always. There's there's always bad times..

"Guy. The and much like Lauren Astra forgiveness for her Spanish pronunciations. With her Italian talion accent. I will be asking for forgiveness for my spinach pronunciations. With my Frenchaccent. 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. Speaking advisors to help organize Cuba's defense committee.
