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.
Fresh update on "fidel castro" discussed on Weekend Edition Sunday
"From Rice University said in the heart of Houston, Texas Rice University works to contribute to the betterment of the world through transformative research and experiential learning. Morat Reis study, do you? And from the listeners who support this NPR station. This is weekend edition from NPR News. I'm Lulu Garcia Navarro. President Biden returns to the White House today. He met there with the Japanese prime minister Friday and then went home to Delaware for the weekend. He's returning to a problem that's proven to be particularly troublesome immigration. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson has been looking into it and joins us now. Good morning, Mara. Good morning, Lulu. Biden promise to deal with immigration and sent a bill to Congress, which passed the House and rest now with the Senate committee, But the politics are waiting for the policy on this issue. No, This is the issue that Biden has had the most trouble handling since he came into office. It's not clear whether the White House misunderstood or underestimated how a new president with a more welcoming policy on immigration than his predecessors, predecessor would be received by people desperate to come to the U. S. So you had this huge surge of unaccompanied minors at the border for which the administration seemed unprepared. Now you have a second problem, a second immigration problem with the confusion over the refugee cap, the number of refugees that's people coming in through a separate system that Biden said he would raise. All right. Let's talk about that back and forth on refugees of the administration made because those coming over the southern border who may also be fleeing persecution have not been vetted in the same way. As refugees were brought in through a formal pipeline of international organizations like the U. N. You know, the Southern border asylum seekers make their claim through the U. S courts after they've crossed so to two different things to different things. A lot of these refugees have already been vetted there sitting in refugee camps around the world, North Africa, the Middle East, just waiting for a plane ticket. Some of them are Iraqis or Afghanis who were translators that helped the U. S military. Biden said he'd raised the cap from a very low 15,000 that Trump had placed to 62,500. But then he said that he couldn't raise the cap. Hey, got a lot of pushback from refugee advocates. So he walked that back, and he said that on May 15th will be announcing a new cap. So a lot of confusion. Biden's learning it's a lot harder to fulfill a campaign promise than to make one So if Biden's handling of immigration writ large in the specific issue of refugees hasn't been, I guess much off a successor for or at least it's causing him problems. How damaging hasn't been politically. That is unclear. Right now Republicans are focusing on the southern border. They feel this is a political issue that works well with their base. They are attacking Biden for they say, letting all sorts of horrible people across the border people with covert people who might be terrorists. But the political problem around refugees is coming from inside the Democratic coalition. These are Advocates for refugees who say that Biden is walking back his campaign promise. They're saying he's waffling, so he's really being hit by two sides by from the right of how the unaccompanied child surge of the border and then from the left. Because of this confusion around the refugee cap, and it seems to be specifically in bowling emboldening congressional Republicans like Georgia's Marjorie Taylor Green. What do you make of her? Attempted in America? First Caucus? Yeah, This is a strange story. She she, and along with a couple other Republicans have created this thing called the American First Caucus. It seems to have a white identity mission. They talked about wanting to return to an architectural style that befits the quote Prada. Any of European architecture. They also said that mass immigration, not just illegal immigration, threatens quote the long term existentially future of America as a unique country with a unique culture and unique identity. Not quite sure what that means, Since America's unique culture was made by immigrants from all over the world. Well, I thought it got clear what it means. Yeah, got some pushback from the Republican leader in the house. Kevin McCarthy, who tweeted that the Republican Party is the party of Lincoln. Not native ist dog whistles. That's the kind of criticism you usually hear of Republicans from Democrats. So you're seeing some, you know, a party that is going through an identity crisis, whether it wants to be a white identity party or something bigger. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Thank you very much. Thank you. Ever since the 1959 revolution, there has been one name at the helm of power in Cuba. That name is Castro First, Fidel and then his brother hold on Friday, The old Castro at 89 confirmed his formal resignation as the head off the Communist Party, saying he had quote fulfilled his mission and he was confident in the future of the Fatherland. Joining us now to talk about what that means is Lillian Gara. She's a professor of Cuban and Caribbean history at the University of Florida. Welcome to the program. Thank you for having me on it's Ah, it's a big honor. Is this simply symbolic? Or is it really the end of an era? Well, it's a little bit of both. Certainly, Raul has made a number of a parent changes since he came to power. Probably the most significant is the fact that when he took power for the first time since 1959 You had many different people occupying the three top posts that once Fidel Castro occupied so today we have Prime Minister Manuel my little We have President. The Republic the s gone in and we until yesterday, Hydro Castro's the first secretary of the party. And you know, prior to Raul, you only had Fidel doing all three jobs so that in itself is significant and the question of what exactly he will do now. I mean, he's certainly supposed to remain a Z said yesterday as a member of the Politburo. He's not stepping down from that. He really isn't stepping down from his position at the Army. Who will replace him is the biggest question that remains open. Do we know yet who might be taking over the Communist Party leadership? It has been mentioned that the president, the scandal could be a contender. My theory is that they're going to pick one of these two men who are currently part of the triumvirate. One assumes it will be the S cannon. There's some hope that it might be the prime minister instead because he's the one who's the most pro private sector And in fact, he's a little bit of a dark horse because before he was prime minister, he had never even been a member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party. That in itself makes him a more appealing candidate for those who are interested in expansion of the private sector, and that really will make a very big difference in the lives of citizens in the future, if that does happen. I mean, the economy is so central right now to the situation in Cuba will new leadership change things? It seems to be that you're saying it depends on who gets that post that role. Castro's vacating the degree to which we see dramatic change is tempered by the fact that what role has been doing since he took power in 2009. He's really to institutionalize The Communist system, the Communist Party and it's really at a high point Now I wonder what this means for the relationship with the United States. Former President Obama, of course, opened up relations with Cuba. Former President Trump Shut them down. Do we know what the Biden administration will do? Well. Biden when he was a candidate, said repeatedly that he was going to go back to administration and Obama's approach and that was openness and figuring out a path to normalization. Probably the most important catalyst for change in Cuba would be that the United States, he eliminated the embargo. The embargo in many respects was somewhat frayed under the Obama administration, and especially in 2016 and those of us who were on the island. Repeatedly that year, really observed the difference. Tens of thousands of Americans who would never have gone to Cuba went There was money coming in to create businesses that were basically transnational, and they were entrepreneurial. It was a completely different scenario, and all of that got shut down long before Cove it There is a great deal of debate as to whether there can never really be change in Cuba as long as there is a Castro alive..
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

Hannity: Bernie says Castro's literacy program made communism worth it
"So he was talking last nine in sixty minutes he mentioned all the good things Fidel Castro dead in Cuba and he mentioned he had a literacy program put together was a literacy program he forced children to learn the propaganda of communism this was a literacy program at all but he still double down and talked about the good things that he Fidel Castro did any commented about what he said on sixty minutes this is cut B. last night occasionally it might be a good idea to be honest about American foreign policy and that includes the fact that America is overthrown governments all over the world in Chile AT what Amala in Iraq on and when dictatorships whether it is the Chinese all the Cubans do something good I worked all the time is right you don't have to okay after all of these years could someone please give Bernie Sanders a class on how to speak into a microphone if nobody wants to talk every pay up top hello every Taig intake runner I mean come on dude like you're trying to run for the president the United States will get the my get a kid here please now no the this is the way you know he doesn't he will because he's used to you know most of time speaking into a bullhorn standing on a soapbox from an elevated level because he flaps his arms so much she takes flight he could galley yeah they were gonna win would listen that for four years Alex fell now then
"fidel castro" Discussed on KTLK 1130 AM
"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.
Democrats unload on front-runner Bernie Sanders in likely preview of tonight’s debate
"Of Bernie Sanders is going to be ready to take incoming from all of the candidates this comedy made on sixty minutes talking about Fidel Castro and the idea that the literacy program he started in nineteen fifty nine when castle took over absurd as Eddie Gomez you know one of the leading experts in Cuban American affairs told us our last hour Q. I have one of the highest illiteracy rates in Latin America at the time the only reason that the the change things as slightly under castor was because you want to indoctrinate the kid's into of Marxism for example when they're literally alphabet the F. stood for Fidel the C. stood for chegar no boarded Bernie miss out on this where do you miss elements in there someone who up Debbie mark mark so Powell congresswoman South Florida Democrat was criticized over this Donna Shalala democratic congressman from south Florida's criticized over this as well M. Bernie has to say the only reason they're back in the they are backing or where they're criticizing him is because they are politically motivated here was for his comments I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing and by the way all of those congresspeople that you mentioned just so happen to be supporting other candidates just accidentally knocked out yeah an instance for mark is Marxism that's of those cuties religion come on Bernie another town hall meeting mayor Pete Buttigieg's distance himself from Bernie Sanders as well as a Democrat I don't want to be explaining why our nominees is encouraging people to look on the bright side of the Castro regime when we're going into the election of our lives of course this is a good thing but why are we spotlighting the literacy programs of a brutal dictator instead of being on ambiguous in our condemnation about the way he's treated his own people that's because you fed up Bernie Sanders you know arm in arm with the day or taken from Nicaragua and he refused to call Maduro a dictator all those kinds of things tonight they're gonna put his feet to the fire about this during this debate what happens in the state of Florida Gomez told us he believes five ten percent of Cuban Americans might vote for Bernie Sanders look in the state of Florida it's always been one percent the last alarm elections right one two percent that's it that close national elections have been yeah yeah so if you wind up taking a Miami Dade County and Broward county boards they need that heavy population they need to over riding only win the Democrats do to be able to counteract the the deal to the lives of the Ford at the I. four corridor and where there are more conservative Republicans in that area you need Miami Dade and Broward county if you take the Nicaraguans in the Venezuelans in the Cubans and you save them we'd like the idea of socialism they are not going to vote for you or they're gonna stay home and you're gonna lose the state of Florida bacon if you lose the state of Florida you're in real trouble in the Democratic Party there's no question about this and that's why the hierarchy of the Democrat party going crazy right now now this thing may very well be over on March third I think it will be all fourteen states that are having of primaries on March the third have Bernie Sanders in the lead all of he wins all of those and the train is on the tracks toward the nomination but you likely won't get enough delegates to win the nomination outright it'll come down to the convention right and what happens then is the five hundred super delegates the members of Congress the former president of the United States members of the Democratic National Committee all get votes and if they take burn it away from Bernie even though he's got the plurality of delegates democratic party's done everything they might decide to do is to say will save the future of the Democratic Party but not putting a socialist in charge that's the only way they take it away from knowing they're gonna lose either way yes yeah
Bernie Sanders defends praise of Fidel Castro before debate
"Senator Bernie Sanders fresh off his caucus win in Nevada is facing a backlash for comments he made Sunday on sixty minutes praising the late Cuban dictator Fidel
Strategist Steve Schmidt Discusses Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump
"Do you think that Bernie Sanders is the biggest threat to your president trump? Right now I do think so I would say that the biggest threat to president trump is president trump. What do you mean by that? Well if he's on his game as he was at the state of the Union there's a candidate in the country that can beat them if there is a second choice of than himself it would be Bernie Sanders Bernie. Sanders brings out outside game in a similar fashion. That president trump did in two thousand sixteen interesting moment there with Tim. Scott of South Carolina Senator Bernie Sanders coming off a big win in Nevada. And on Saturday we will come to what is only. Let's remember the second primary of the political season. Let's talk about the state of our politics with us. Now Steve Schmidt a veteran former Republican strategist us since left the Republican Party. But he's here with US tonight. That's all we care about. Let's take them one at a time. Let's start with the Republicans. Start WITH SENATOR. Scott's point the biggest risk to donald trump is donald trump because we just had shannon petty peace with with a straight face as a reporter. Say It's another one of these crises corona virus. That trump didn't start himself. Well Look Tim. Scott is correct. I mean the person that is always created the most powerful for Donald trump politically is is donald trump but since his acquittal by the Senate as he's purging the government of anybody he thinks is disloyal as he is taking his revenge is he is a visceral rating the rule of law in unprecedented fashion. Interfering in criminal cases the Department of Justice his poll numbers are going up and so he is consolidating power at an alarming rate in doing so liberally. Let's talk about the Democrats and as we do. I WanNa play the Clip Bernie. Sanders campaign manager. Came on with Chris Hayes earlier on this network tonight. We'll look at that one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty. You get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question he gives you a direct response comes from his heart from his soul. Tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective but you know he's he's shooting straight with. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba and the Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there were some good things that happened in Cuba. We should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people will play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We've benefited from the fact that his stray shooting his integrity. His honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink at him that were tonight and at a CNN town hall and the last hour people to judge just said in effect here. We are as a party. We're talking about Fidel Castro. Indeed and they are and you look at travesty of a debate if you're in the business of wanting to remove Donald Trump from office. The one thing that wasn't talked at all about in that debate was trump or trumpism and so the campaign managers talking about Bernie Sanders Integrity. Is he showing integrity by not releasing his medical records? Is he showing transparency and integrity by not talking about the Price Tag associated with student? Loan Forgiveness Free Pre pre K. daycare for everybody. And there's no price tags on any of this. It's a dishonest progressivism. That's NO DIFFERENT THAN DONALD. Trump's dishonesty talking about the Mexican paid for wall it's all fantasy and so when Bernie Sanders goes out there. He starts talking about well. Here's the good sides of Fidel Castro. I think it's important to understand that there might be a constituency for that in this country but it's a really small one and it's certainly not enough to get you into an electoral college majority to win the White House. And it certainly dooms your chances in Florida. How do you process the fact that tomorrow night? We're going to have seven people on stage. Two of them are billionaires. Two of them look at real double digit poll numbers knowing that money bought those poll numbers not some inner need to have them as our next president. How do we process that well? I think they're two different cases right so first off. Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City for twelve years and by any objective standard. He was one of the most competent successful leaders of large government anywhere in the world over the last quarter century. He was a profoundly successful mayor. I think it's a mistake for Democrats to attack. Somebody like Mike. Bloomberg who grew up in a middle-class circumstance and is a self made man is one of the country's greatest philanthropists and I disagree with him on a number of different issues but if you are invested in progressive causes. It's hard for me to think of anybody who has done more to advance progressivism whether it's on gun issues whether it's on climate then has Mike Bloomberg so the notion that Mike Bloomberg is on that stage somehow illegitimately is not something that I really understand. Tom Steyer has been an activist in American politics. Now for some period of years he has communicated a message. He's gotten the requisite poll numbers to be on the stage. The question will be after the South Carolina primaries. If you have eight moderate Democrats all of whom might have a greater chance of beating Donald Trump and does Bernie Sanders? Will some of those candidates get out of the race to help coalesce support around the strongest? Moderate candidate? Poor the issue right now in the Democratic primaries you cannot make an objective judgement and say Bernie Sanders is going to go down to Donald Trump in the swing states on the basis of poll numbers because the poll numbers. Don't support that in those states. But when you look at Bernie Sanders positions that we should criminalize illegal immigration. That we're going to take health insurance away from one hundred fifty million people who have private health insurance a of other issues the type of rhetoric that you saw him use on sixty minutes talking about Castro. All of these issues come together. In a way that I think objectively with James Carville said is disqualifying for somebody running for president in somebody. Who'S LIKELY TO LOSE TO DONALD TRUMP and I think that's what you're saying. A lot of panic in the democratic electorate in the democratic officeholder class in these days really focused on Steve Schmidt always a pleasure. Thank you for

"fidel castro" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Now it's the great one mark on the world famous radios yes the number of the underground command post from the files of the heaven somewhere under the brick and steel over nondescript building we've once again made contact without a leader the end when Fidel Castro came into office you know what he did he had a massive literacy program it's not a bad thing what do you are you into literacy what about that are you into reading who wouldn't want Cubans to help books these are good things I mean you know there is this little detail about fourteen thousand Cubans Stein a little thing called a revolution and yeah I mean after the initial fourteen thousand people were killed in the revolution well we we told some business says then we took them homes okay so we really just took all private property I mean naturally there's the more people that resisted and were upset so then we killed about another sixty thousand during the resistance it happens but books and literacy tell me that isn't a good thing Cubans they like to read I mean seriously seriously to put this in perspective for you Bernie Sanders in the literacy of of Cuba and Fidel Castro what he brought his gift of of reading to the island it led to the killing of fourteen thousand Cubans before they were granted that wonderful literacy program in that revolution it did lead to the killing of about another sixty thousand Cubans as they were confiscating the Castro regime businesses homes the sessions as they saw fit now let me put this in perspective for you this would be the equivalent of an incoming revolution in Massachusetts you see the the Cuban population the time of the Castro revolution so that's seven million people to write about the population a Massachusetts so imagine for a moment then you have A. N. incoming governor decides he's going to do it by force so the incoming governor of Massachusetts wipes out fourteen thousand residents decides he's going to take over all businesses all homes all personal possessions as he sees fit and kill another sixty thousand as they confiscate things and then at the end of it box but really good reading program are you going to tell me there's a real problem with this one again make this stuff up I am your us down for different Brian Mudd hosted the morning rush W. J. now west Palm Beach the bright light show WIOD in Miami always an honor and a pleasure to be here with you and of course as the whole burn sixty minutes fiasco played out last night and you have a run a run for the races across the country and Democrat ranks but especially here in South Florida to descend battle this guy those comments there's one thing that wise is above all else clarity the great one now will be back from his special his life liberty eleven special economy class nine on the fox news channel with prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu he'll be back with some incredible content for you tomorrow one of the things that was fascinating as take a look at the lay of the land and what's going on coming out of that a what's going on with the Democratic Party what's going on with their front runner Bernie Sanders is actually what I was talking about with you last Thursday I shared with you a story in some perspective that I don't believe has been readily shared and analyzed before rankings progressive rankings from an activist organization indivisible and I did so to illustrate a series of points first that there are no moderate Democrats running for president none zip zero that everyone of them represents substantially less freedom than what we have today but secondly just how incredibly radical Bernie Sanders says because Bernie Sanders represents ninety seven percent less freedom that we have today ninety seven percent and this is some made up horse crap kinda number this is Bernie Sanders answering a questionnaire on what his policies represent Bernie Sanders in his own words he chooses government over private solutions ninety seven times out of a hundred any wonder that he would think that Castro is literacy program such a bad thing it wasn't all bad I mean you know the authoritarian thing not so great I want you to let me know what you like me I mean come on we avoid that whole but the revolution and that is just great socialism and communism that's what he's really saying and here's the irony of it he is the most consistent authentic probably honest politician running among the Democrats it's not complicated Bernie Sanders is who in what he's always said he is he is a socialist and what better friend does the socialists have been a communist one of the great things as I've been watching the lying hypocrites known as elected Democrats in Florida today run for the hills how many of them are plain stupid here you have a lot of leadership among the Democrats there are a lot of things that are dishonest one thing by large they're not stupid they know damn well who and what Bernie Sanders is they just hope that you wouldn't know I mean really if you talk about the establishment obviously they don't want him but to the extent that he is a player and they're concerned about having these young socialist wing that their education is talisman has created in this country the things that Hey socialism is kind of funny goal doesn't realize that it is responsible for the killing of seventy three thousand people in Cuba hello let alone the ongoing repression for decades those people these Democrats that are now disavowing these comments and give you an idea there are two their house seats that flipped in Southport in twenty eighteen the Republicans need to take back this year in order to regain control of the house one for the twenty seventh congressional district this includes parts of Broward and Miami Donna shillelagh he was helping Human Services secretary under Clinton she's a freshman representative now in Congress she had this to say about the burden I'm hoping that in the future senator Sanders will take the time to speak to some of my constituents before he decides to sing the praises of a murderous tyrant like Fidel Castro for scrap is that I'm hoping in the future senator Sanders will take the time to speak to some of my constituents he didn't know prior to what he said what Castro did you think we're stupid I don't think you're that stupid I just think you count on the people that you have recruited three your ranks due to your education establishment that is misled generations of Americans now I just think you count on them being ignorant enough to think that you will make sense when you say something like that Donna Shalala is part of the problem Donna shillelagh has got to go here's another one did the market sell pal Florida's twenty sixth congressional district this includes part of south Miami and the keys she had this to say as the first south American immigrant member of Congress who proudly represents thousands of Cuban Americans hi fine senator Bernie Sanders comments on Castro's Cuba absolutely unacceptable well thank you for that one did the merger sub wait a lead part of the problem number there are no moderates now running for president and not these people in fact these two that I just pointed out and here's the great irony of ironies these two seats flipped in twenty eighteen from Republicans to Democrats right guess what they have two of the five most liberal voting records in the house of representatives currently in day like all Democrats across this state in most states but it to impeach president trump talked about that a bit more the implications in a separate conversation later in the show but here's the greater point you would have to be stupid to buy into the crap of any of these people and I mentioned on Thursday you need to be careful what you wish for I know a lot of Republicans that thank Hey it would be great Bernie Sanders is the candidate to certain extent you hear president trump even suggest this at times because Hey he'll be easy to beat and down ballot we'll end up ranking on the right will be so much heat to win these congressional seats if we only have burning at the top maybe you might be right but the problem is any time you have an election there's a chance the other candidate wins member the left wanted Donald Trump how that worked out for them be careful what you wish for and rather than having Bernie Sanders at the top of the ticket to end up flipping Congress everything else how about just making better decisions period the stakes are too high something that I referenced as well on Thursday as I was depicting just how incredibly radical Bernie Sanders and other Democrats happen to being put it out the what they represent it's something that we might not be able to recover from every superpower every world empire in human history has collapsed right are we so unique and in the grand scheme of human history where a young country you think that we couldn't collapse if we had a socialist a dyed in the wool socialist as president United States damn straight we good Democrats controlled everything guess what you have these days because that's who in what they are there are no moderates left they must be defeated and also as a reference about Bloomberg at least he's a capitalist and that's more than you can say for many Democrats anymore.

We all know about the atrocities committed by the likes of Hitler. And and Stalin in the United States were familiar with longtime American adversaries such as Fidel Castro and Kim Jong Hoon on dictators his will trace the psychological cultural and spiritual influences that transformed these individuals.

Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at podcast and twitter at podcast network. And if you enjoy today's episode the the best way to help us is to leave a five star review. Wherever you're listening? It really does help for our first six episodes we're starting with a bang As we explore the lives of World War. Two's three worst dictators Benito Mussolini Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler. Today today we'll see how Mussalini harness disparate social elements such as socialism nationalism and future ISM to forge a new belief leave system fascism. This hateful ideology would be his chief tool in portraying himself as the ideal Italian man Dan and it would go on to inspire an even greater evil next week. We'll see how an alliance with that greater evil no not see Germany led to Mussolini's downfall. Mussolini is often thought of as Hitler's incompetent lackey his fellow fascist. Who Lost the war in Italy and died a day earlier on April twenty eighth nineteen forty-five his body hung the square and spit upon? But that is the modern perception in his time. Mussalini was considered a swashbuckling heartthrob heartthrob a master politician. He rose to power in Italy years. Before Hitler became the face of totalitarianism despite destroying civil liberties in his country and exiling thousands of Italian Jews to concentration camps Mussolini's people loved him mm-hmm and some still do. But how could the people of any time view a monster in such a romantic light and how has there's his global reputation fallen from that of the ultimate leader to the ultimate stooge in order to answer these questions. We must trace Mussalini his time as a socialist agitator in Switzerland to his years as a newspaper man to his crafty rise to prime minister. Aw Mussolini's entire life was a self defeating journey to fulfil a masculine ideal. He was born on July twenty ninth. Eighteen eighty three his father allesandro. Mussolini was his first role model. According to Spark Educational Mussalini once told a reporter after I come of peasant stock. My father was a blacksmith. He gave me strength. A young Mussalini would work the forge with his father sweat dripping sparks Sinjin. His skin researcher Andrea Son Giovanni describes the traditional image of Italian steelwork doc as a completely masculine world where the natural characteristics of man strength courage leadership honor aggression are praised to excess. Mussolini picked up on this learning to be strong to a fault to express only the most dominant reported himself. He was taught that a man worked hard that he and his father were the laboring peasantry and across the country in Rome there was was a king and a church that reaped the benefits of their labor and didn't work at all even worse. There were Austrian kings to the north who ruled old overland and people that were rightfully Italian. Young Mussalini imagine these rulers like fantasy despots almost inhuman every day at the forge. His father filled his mind with ideas about a revolution of workers just like them. Men like them mm-hmm strong workers who made up the real Italy. who would one day inherit the earth? Mussalini loved his father and he wanted nothing. Nothing more than to live up to these ideals. This belief system socialism with a little bit of nationalism would entrance and beguile him and throughout the rest of his life but as much as he admired his father he was also confused by him he talked about strengthened honor but but Mussalini gradually became aware that allesandro didn't exactly personify those things his father's main focus in life life was not on his work or his family but his mistress who we often spend money on while Mussalini his two siblings and his mother lived in a small home eating very basic meals this engendered toxic dichotomy within the young boy. He had a father telling him how to who act like a man but had no strong male role model to actually show him what that looks like and so he would spend his life trying to decide for himself. Mm Self how a man should act while nursing a selfish streak that would topple a republic because of his own father wasn't going to look out for for the young Mussolini and who would. His mother noticed growing anger inside of him in eighteen. Ninety Ninety two when Mussolini was nine she sent him to Catholic Boarding School in the hopes that the priests would be able to calm him. The opposite was true. To the Catholics were largely anti-socialists they took out their political beliefs on miscellany the son of a socialist this included withholding ending food from him and forcing him to sleep in the dog Kennel. His selfish streak deepened as he felt that truly the whole world was out out to get him at the same time. Some of the masculine ideals he had picked up from his father were being reinforced. Catholic doctrine emphasized is the differences between men and women how men were meant to be masculine leaders and Women Feminine Mothers. This idea was driven home by the simple fact that it was an all boys. School with male only teachers Mussolini's growing toxic masculinity famously boiled over one Sunday in the school yard when Mussolini stabbed a classmate in the hand and so his picture of the ideal man continued to fill out the ideal man was a strong hard worker like his dad had taught him but as he had picked up from Catholic school. Aggression was a vital a piece to the puzzle. He would never forget how the anti-socialist priests had treated him there pettiness. There need to exert control all over. A child was anything but masculine.
The Current Situation In Iran: How Did We Get Here?
"Get to the terrifying news of the day President Trump essentially started a war with Iran when he ordered the assassination of Iranian major general. Qassem Soleimani who was the second most powerful figure in the Iranian government in response. What's around has vowed to retaliate against the United States in? US forces serving abroad. They've announced they'll be restarting their nuclear program. The Iraqi parliament voted to expel all US. US troops from Iraq and we've been forced to suspend our operations against Isis in Iraq. A meanwhile trump has responded by sending another three thousand five hundred troops to the Middle East and tweeting that if Iran retaliates quote we have targeted fifty two around the incites representing the fifty two American hostages taken by Iran many years ago some at a very very high level and important to Iran in the Iranian culture in those targets in Iran itself will be hit very fast and very hard targeting cultural sites is in fact an internationally internationally recognized war crime so lots to unpack here guys. Tommy let's start at the beginning. What do we know about so far why this happened? Y did trump make this decision. Well it depends on who you believe. Okay The Washington Post reported that Mike pompeo has been pushing trump to do this for many many months. And you know back in the day there were a bunch of senior officials in the trump administration like Jim Madison Rex. Tillerson the secretary of State. who were cautioning less caustic line on didn't want him to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal but over time all these reasonable got pushed out the right-wing hardliners are in in. And so here. We are now the stated reason that the trump administration did this is. They said that there was an imminent threat from Qasim Sumani from Shia militia groups in Iraq. That we're going to attack and kill. US forces Everyone who has seen that intelligence so far people quoted in newspapers people. I've talked to you said that that that does not hold water They've seen nothing that indicates there was some imminent threat. which would justify this strike legally or you know rationally so it just seems like something that a bunch of nuts wanted to do and it sounds like the sort of would immediately precipitated? The decision was the fact that there had been There was an attack that killed an American contractor in Iraq. Right this is the problem. Their explanation is all over the place. They one of these militia groups K. H. A. Shia militia group in Iraq killed a US contractor and wound servicemembers Kirk in response to that the US military hit a couple of sites associated with cage training sites weapons depots etcetera. You'd think that response was to killing. US contractor but then they went in killed Qassem Sumani and the justification for that was an an alleged imminent threat of another attack but even in the way pump goes on television lies obviously but even in the way. He's lying to be admitting that that's not totally true. Because they he's he said something along the lines of He was in the process of Planning attacks against American interests in two things about that one. That seems seems to have been a good part of his job for the better part of seconds. And the second part of that is He's not the actual. He's not pulling the trigger. He's wearing a suicide vest right. He's he's he's just a he's involved in the chain of command and one other part of this. No one has been able to answer at all is how does killing This figure prevent those attacks. Why aren't those? It was a tax more likely than not less likely to happen. Now that this person is it also seemed like there was reporting in the New York Times in Washington Post as well that in retaliation for the contractor you're being killed Trump ordered those set of strikes and then there were protests outside our embassy in Iraq. Yep and it said there. Apparently trump was watching those protests and then got really mad and decide that he wanted to do another strike. What is surprise that trump was watching cable TV and it made him angry? Although this time with this sounds like what happened with Mike Pompeo and and Secretary of Defense Esper- flew flew down to mar-a-lago and they pitched trump on a menu of ideas to further respond and the New York Times reported that on the menu was killing Soleimani money and that that very extreme proposal was only put on there to make the other ones look more reasonable and everyone was shocked when ultimately decided to do it but no one apparently push back. That was the craziest anecdote of all the New York Times that they were like. We'll just put this on as an extra so and and you know in some people may have seen this. But both the Bush administration and the Obama Obama Administration basically passed on this option at times as well because and the reason they did is because they were too concerned both administrations even the administration that took us to war in Iraq were concerned that this would escalate tensions in the Middle East into full blown. War Yeah Before we talk about what a stupid and dangerous move this this was tell me what do you think about the debate over whether it was legally justified whether we call it an assassination. And how much do these debates matter. I mean they matter if you care about international law so from that like it's a complicated case They're sort of like a common sense like lexical. What's in the dictionary definition of assassination? And then there's the definition of assassination which has been banned by the US government under executive orders that date back to like the when we used to give Fidel Castro explosive cigars and attempt to take political figures. You're not supposed to assassinate political figures period. the debate about in so like but Sola money's is a complicated case and that he's like the number two guy in their system but could force The organization he ran is a US designated terrorist organizations. There's no doubt that he helped build this play. This big role role in creating and supporting these militia groups in other malign acts across the globe basically. But there's no formal state of war between the US and Iran so there's no basis ACIS to target him on that level right like during the Iraq war the US targeted Saddam Hussein remember deck of cards the figures that they'd go after right so that the legality of Whether or not it was legal or justify takeouts lemani hinges on this intelligence. None of us can see these at all is about this imminence question got it but I mean I think reasonable people should say this was an assassination so I mentioned some of the consequences that are already playing out. What are some of the potential consequences that worry you the most both in short-term medium-term long-term Blake I worry about Iran on directly targeting forces in Iraq or Jordan or Kuwait or diplomatic posts in Lebanon. Worry about these Shia militia groups Lebanese Lebanon's Hezbollah came out today and said that their targets are going to be. US military personnel and they're not going to target civilians so when the head of Hezbollah sounds more reasonable than the present united United States on twitter. That's telling you something There's also these militia groups that might just sort of pay fealty to the money and not coordinate their actions with The Iranians and take action that way just because they're pissed and then there's also the fact that we had to stop the counter isis operations at a time when Isis has has had a bit of a resurgence because of our pull out from serious. There's a lot of ways this can manifest. How serious do you think the concerns are about cyber attacks against the United States or potentially a terrorist attack against the homeland? It's hard to know it's hard to know. I mean you look at what they've done what they set already about their nuclear program. They announced that they're no longer going to who abide by the enrichment restrictions in the JCP away in the Iran deal. But they said they're gonNA continue to Work with the IRA and allow them access test to inspect sites and things. So like in that instance if you're looking at that as a signal there sort of like tiptoeing out of the Iran deal. They're not like immediately announcing that they're enriching ninety eighty percent create a bomb so it seems like there's sort of an incremental response not some big blockbuster thing it seems that there's some F partout seem reasonable to international community to try a seem as though they are the victims in this absolutely. I think you're right well it we mentioned this yet but it does seem like the inciting incident for this entire crisis is trump ripping ripping up the Iran. Deal back in two thousand eighteen. Yes I mean I thought Ben Ben Rhodes on our pod. Friday walked through the timeline from the Iran. Trumping out of the Iran deal today. And I think it's a very compelling case he also wrote a piece for the Atlantic I mean I think we would be in a stronger position today. If the trump if Iran's nuclear program was being managed by a diplomatic agreement the fact that it's not everything more complicated well and I think an important point here is how you felt about the Iran. Deal in the first place whether it was a good deal or not Once the Iran deal was in place even trump's own Administration his own national security team. warned him not to get out of the deal real people who weren't necessarily fans of the deal the first place at once. We're in the deal. You shouldn't get out of the deal and he fucking did it. Anyway against the advice of most people in his administration and the whole global community in here we are by one of the reasons to non pull out was the fear that it might lead to this crisis. Right you John. Bolton now that he's left administration is very clear that his goal along has been regime. Change right so they pull out of your own nuclear deal where Iran agreed to all these restrictions on their nuclear program in exchange for economic relief from sanctions actions and instead of getting that relief they get more sanctions in an effort to crush their economy and lead to regime change. Of course over time. They're going to start lashing out. It shouldn't surprise anybody. So let's talk about how the administration is responding to all this Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was out on all the Sunday shows when he was asked by. Chuck Todd about the potential for around to retaliate. By killing Americans pompeo said quote. It may be. There is a little noise here in the in term but that America will be safer in the long run later. Donald Trump was asked the same question and and said quote. If it happens it happens. Tommy I know you have some Some strong feelings about pompeo Sunday show appearances because I was texting. You injured it before I melt down. I'm just curious what you guys think would have happened if Susan Rice said there was a little noise in the interim I saying like this those those statements both both from POMPEII. Oh and then trump saying if it happens it happens like this. President Obama would've been impeached within a day for saying that. I can't even believe there's there's such a there's such a glibness to it at but it is also it is. They're kind of whatever they're they're sort of cost playing as tough tough guys and so for them. They're they're trying to go out there

Both civilians and crew were swept off the decks by jets of water that were fired from the other boats. In once the march thirteenth had sank. The survivors weren't offered any immediate aid.

Like old ricky tugboat at least thirty seven died including including a dozen children and being very sad. That's awful let them leave. Yeah let him believe doing you any harm cheese. During Castro's searle hundreds of thousands of Cubans fled the country generally settling just across the Florida Straits in Miami. It's the largest exodus happened in nineteen eighty when Castro open up the port of Memory L. to to allow exiled Cubans living in Miami to come claim their relatives upon their arrival. Castro also loaded the ships with Cuban prison inmates and mentally ill people oh mine sent them then back to so he was like. Oh you left your grandma. Euro Bela here. You can come and get her and then you're like okay. I love my boy. I'M GONNA go pick her backup and Havana. Then then. By the way you have to take all of these murderers yeah here you go take these murderers with you. Oh my God in all Paul. Nearly one hundred twenty thousand Cubans left their homeland in nineteen eighty alone to find sanctuary. I S holy cow. Although there's no official show Count Castro is believed to fathered at least nine children so again with his first wife he is on a fee delicto. Who actually committed suicide in February burri? Twenty eighteen after a battle with depression But Castro and his second wife Dalia Savelli had five more sons and he also had three other children from three separate women in a two thousand. Eight documentary claim that the Cuban leader slept with at least two women a day for forty years. Sometimes a third one came in after dinner so two to three women every day for forty years.

As as you banging yes a former catcher official said quote. I don't think he would have stayed on for as long as he did. If got all the incredible women he had access to as President Senate Barth. Yeah Yeah So. After the nine hundred ninety one collapse of the Soviet the Union sent Cuba's economy into a Tailspin Castro's revolution began to lose momentum out without cheap oil imports. An eager Soviet market for Cuban sugar and other goods Cuban unemployment and inflation grew the contraction of the Cuban economy resulted in eighty five percent of its markets disappearing. Oh my God they were relying heavily on the USSR. Oh my gosh show.

"Eleven deaths in one thousand which is one point one percent which is like pretty great. Yeah also sidebar. Are here which is still part of under good news. I guess Cashier loved ice cream. So much. Chance that during the nineteen sixties. He ordered the construction of the greatest ice cream parlor in the world. Oh Havana so he had his secretary Celia Sanchez. Help design the plans for this. They named it Cappella after that ballet about a life-size doll Covered that in episode one zero five whole closer tiny dancer so cashier had a special breed of cow developed.

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.

"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.
