"Now, in recent times and this is thanks to the mayor of Francis Suarez, Miami is now the leader in adoption of crypto. And Suarez is personally set an example of taking his salary and portion of his 401k retirement savings in Bitcoin. And this happened in August 2021 when the city launched the municipal digital currency dubbed the Miami coin. And it was used to fund local projects by generating yields. And the project initially raised 23 million, but like everything it was hit hard by the crypto bear market. And the token went down almost 90% of its value. While Bitcoin's price has fallen on its 70%, mayor Suarez and LC was taking his paycheck paycheck in Bitcoin. So maybe is unique as far as the Miami dade county cryptocurrency task force. It's comprising of municipal stakeholders designed to research and in that crypto legislation, which benefit local residents and the board chairman of the cryptocurrency task force has said that crypto's on fire and Miami dade is a poised to pierce to be able of municipalities and crypto and I'm leading the charge. It's an honor. I am very humbled by it. It's also very exciting. And there's a plan that's also set in motion to enable residents of all my immediate county to officially pay with crypto. Things, for example, like driver's license renewals, registration fees, water bills, county bills, amongst many others. And in addition, municipal employees will also be able to receive a portion of their paycheck in crypto. And moreover, they may have a percentage of their salary put away toward the crypto retirement fund. So each year, the North American Bitcoin conference takes place in Miami. And it was in 2014 that Vitalik Buterin first showed his idea for a decentralized and programmable smart contract blockchain and he dubbed it obviously Ethereum. This year, the event was held in January 17th. And it attracted almost 4000 participants, including some famous people like Mark Cuban, and you know, Mark Cuban came in April and he, along with about 250 other speakers and sponsors, they were showcasing the latest innovations in the NFT space.

"Yeah. He was in Rogan's show. And he's amazing. And he talks about visualizing every possible scenario every possible outcome, including death, like when he would fight, right? He would even visualize the possibility of dying. And accept it. He would accept, look, I'm taking a risk because they would do what's called valette, which is basically fight to the death, essentially. And so the idea was accept every outcome humiliation, death, anything that can go wrong. And once you've accepted that, you're ready. And so I think you have to there's a little bit of psychology and visualization that goes into anything that's massive in terms of pressure. And you accept the consequences and see what happens. Well, listen, at a time of week leadership, I think people need somebody to come forward is a bit different, but more interesting. And like you say, young guy, I mean, how old are you? I'm 44. Oh, I'm 43. There you go. I wonder where we get along? Yeah. Well, listen, look, I wish you the best that. Thanks. If you run, I wish you I wish it was a success. Finger comments.

"Producing countries, stuff like that where they would get an oil dividend. But it's a fascinating concept and it's going to empower people. It's going to educate people. And we're getting some very, very big exchanges that are excited about this project in creating a digital wallet. Obviously, for their own in part for their own self interest. And by the way, Tyler and Cameron we can talk to. Yeah. What's the population here with Miami? So our population is about depending on the census. If you believe the census, it's somewhere in the 600,000 range. Okay. We have 200,000 registered voters. The reason why it's important to do this is registered voters is because you need to verify. Like anybody could say, I'm Miami resident. People think my knees are a place that punches above its weight. So, you know, people who live in other unincorporated areas of the county think they live in Miami, but they really live in Kendall or they live in north dade or whatever. So there has to be an authentication method for the people who are receiving it. And a place that we can verify. So as you know, like the Bitcoin community can be quite savage. Yeah, it's okay. They can be quite savage. And I'm not going to debate the technicals behind Miami. Because we don't need to do that today. But the idea, the Bitcoin gets into the wallets of everyone in the city. For a city that is pro Bitcoin with a man that is pro Bitcoin, that is cool. It's amazing. You know, we've seen it out in El Salvador, where president bikini is trying to get Bitcoin in people's hands. They understand and look some will get rid of it straight away. What's the response been from your constituents? The people who aren't bitcoiners, like are they saying, what are you doing? It's the opposite. First of all, here's the thing and this is the biggest surprise. I'll go to restaurants. I literally was at a restaurant for lunch before we met. And the waitress at the west restaurant is an investor. And she knows about Bitcoin, holds Bitcoin, et cetera. I've had people that are as servers hostesses, janitors that have thanked me for what I'm doing in the crypto space. So that's why I keep telling you that, you know, all my experiences, whether they be on Twitter or whether they be in real life, lead me to believe that the number of people that know about Bitcoin have invested in Bitcoin or thinking about investing in Bitcoin or influenced by Bitcoin is massive. I'm not talking about massive, like way, way, way, way bigger than what most people think. Like way bigger, like, I'm talking about orders of magnitude bigger. And so they're just thrilled because what they see is not just, listen, they don't just see that one initiative, right? What they see is BTO naming the team inter Miami..

"And so we have solar power and we have nuclear power, both are relative nuclear's clean, which obviously have to do something with nuclear waste, but it's clean generation. It doesn't have any carbon emission, which is what creates obviously the climatic issues. And so we have the possibility of being a Bitcoin mining hub as well. And that's something that I've been focused a lot on. Trying to create those connections. We had our first big breakthrough with the city of homestead, which is a city close to Miami, in the county that we reside in, which has done a partnership with a local entrepreneur who is taking their excess energy as well. And is doing a Bitcoin mining facility, a ten megawatt facility. So I mean, you know, the sky's the limit that you can go around the state and look at those kinds of opportunities and create public private partnerships to take excess power and put it to good use. Why do you think there's been this kind of, I don't know how to put it? This kind of reversal against nuclear in some places. I know across parts of Europe they've been decommissioned in nuclear facilities and not replacing them. And we know in certain places where their decommissioning they're having issues with black House. Why do you think that issue exists? I think nuclear moments certainly when the technology was new, was probably the height of it. Then it went through some time with some of the incidents like Chernobyl and others. Yeah, we're afraid of what could happen. Obviously, they become targets or potential targets. But I think it's seeing a renaissance in my opinion. I actually see it serve a little bit the opposite. I think you're seeing a renaissance in nuclear. I think people understand that it's extremely clean and certainly by comparison to cool. It's almost unlimited. And of course, you have to do something with the nuclear material with a waste, but if the plants are, if you actually invest, which is sort of the opposite, if you actually invest and you allow the nuclear power companies to stay state of the art, it can be done extremely safely. You know, what's interesting about Miami to your point sort of the point number two about climate change here is we have essentially three climatic phenomenon that we deal with. One of them is obviously hurricanes, which come seasonally from August to I think October, more or less. Then you have what we call dried a flooding. Believe it or not, which is we have a poor self soil, which is limestone. So the water actually pulls up based on the tides and based on the moon basically. And they call it a king tide. And so the water actually comes up from underneath and pools in certain areas of the city..

"Here, in this country, we have an enormous opportunity to get a larger market share of the Bitcoin mining, which I'm a huge proponent of. I think what people don't understand, they've made a big issue of the ESG, which is a totally bogus issue. But I will say this, American mining companies almost I think I've ever met one that doesn't have that's not completely carbon neutral. They're very ESG conscious. And even the biggest ones that I've been to the other thing that's really interesting is I don't know if you ever seen or been to a place called marble, North Carolina. No, I haven't. I don't expect I don't expect you to be. I've been to Raleigh's at South Carolina. It is, I think Riley is North Carolina. North Carolina. But barelli is a bigger city. So the reason why I say marvel, I'm not gonna say what I know they're gonna hear this and they're gonna call me. You should have said her name. One of the biggest mining companies not the biggest mining company in the country has a facility in marble North Carolina. And the reason why I say that is because it used to be a Levi's manufacturing facility. Follow me. So those jobs that were in that facility left overseas right to China that could do it cheaper, right? And what happened? That city went from a population of thousands to a population of 400. It was decimated by the loss of manufacturing jobs. What's happening now? Now they have a multi megawatt of mining facility there, which is incredible when I've seen it in person. And they're bringing those jobs back to rural America. So you know there's this thought that Bitcoin is something that will just help the elite or people in the urban areas and this is delivering jobs. What I call a technological industrial revolution in the United States, which can create a lot of prosperity, not just in the urban areas, but also in the rural areas. And people don't know that because Bitcoin mining is so mysterious. You know, it's like Bitcoin mining and it's so bad and it's that any other. And it's actually not bad. It doesn't consume as much electricity as people like it to make it seem like. And in the U.S., in particular, because remember before trying to ban mining 60 or 70% of the market share, it was in Russia and China. So you had their coal producing coal burning countries. So obviously, that's where the ESG issues came from. You have countries that are using dirty energy that are mining by and large, but that's changing almost overnight..

"And I'm not sure people have completely understood that, but the thing is here now, because governments control their own currency, they can print money, essentially. And so they can borrow money in whatever ways they want and they can set interest rates when they go to a currency that they don't control. They don't have that leisure. They can't just print more money. That's not in the toolbox. They actually have to balance it. So we in our city, we actually bounce our budget and also really crazy concepts. I know it's crazy. What? No, no, it's crazy. We actually know this is actually even crazier. Yeah. We actually have a surplus. What? We have a $160 million in the piggy bank. That's unbelievable. It's unbelievable. So did you inherit a balanced book? Well, understand that I've been a councilman and mayor. Okay. 12 years. So actually, what I inherited when I got here in November of 2009 was a broken government. We had just had the financial meltdown market meltdown, the real estate bubble burst. And we had for the first time ever a 20 percent budget deficit. So we had what you call and do nothing deficit. If you did nothing, this is what your deficit would be of a $115 million on a $600 million budget. So we had to cut 20% of our budget in one year. So when I see these governments say, oh, well, you can't cut, you know, it's impossible to cut 20% in one year. And it was painful. It was very painful. But we had to cut, we didn't let go of one person, but we had to cut salaries dramatically. We had to cut pension benefits dramatically. We obviously would have liked to have not had to do it, but we didn't have a choice. You know, we had to tighten our belt and we saved the city, and then we built up its reserves over time by making good investment decisions and now.

"It's crazy. Levels of globally, the levels of debt are unsustainable. And then we see politicians such as Elizabeth Warren going very anti Bitcoin, not understanding. Totally totally has it backwards. Yeah. Hillary Clinton now opining on this and great tweet the other day for my friend Jessica, who said she can't work her emails, but she knows everything about cryptocurrency. And then we see someone like you come along and you spend the time understanding it. You spend the time embracing it. You go down the rabbit hole and you understand exactly what it is. And this time of high inflation, very scary inflation was really changing affecting people's lives. You know, you are part of the team that's considering this alternative. And I think that's why people are getting behind you because they're bored of The Old Guard. 78 year old president who really don't understand what's going on the world. It's a bit why people like bouquet. I mean, a politician who couldn't be questioned, but at the same time, it's somebody who is understanding of younger people. You understand that because I mean really, the old guys are retiring, right? But you know the thing is about people like Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton is that in the Democratic Party generally. And I don't want to make this about party, because this should not be a partisan thing. To me, this is not about party. About the letter next to our name. I think people obsess over that. And they make it about that and that's wrong. I just say this. Oftentimes those people who portend to care the most about the impoverished in our community are the ones in many ways that are the most hostile to Bitcoin, which is absolutely counter. It's wrong. It's just absolutely wrong. What Bitcoin has done or what it does is a few things. One and probably most importantly is it creates a system of exchange where people are not subjected to the wild inflation and while devaluation of currencies through oftentimes corrupt actors. So I think that's one of the biggest things that's why you're seeing it in Central America. That's why you're seeing it in South America and in Africa. And I think that has an incredible power to liberate people and democratize their choices. I think the second part of it is sort of this idea that people should have a right to get a return. We've created a system of financial system where unless you're wealthy, you can't risk capital. Unless you're wealthy, you can't make money. So then we complain that there's a tremendous amount of income inequality, which of course there is, right? And so then the question is, well, how are you supposed to make money if you put your money in a bank account? You get zero interest. And oh, by the way, the money that you had today is worth 5, ten, 15, 20% less than what it was a year ago. So it is an impossible, it's impossibility that somebody is not only not going to make a return. They're actually losing money by having their money in a bank account. And so this is simple economics. I mean, this is not like we're not talking about derivatives, we're not talking about complicated things. So I don't know why it's hard for people to understand. It should not be partisan. It should not be about Elizabeth Warren or Hillary Clinton or anybody on the Republican side. It really should be more about understanding the fundamentals, understanding why..

"And there is something here that's extremely unique and it's revolutionary and there's so many obviously more things that we can talk about there. Yeah, well, look, great intro, great start. Lots of plays I can go with this. But I find it quite interesting that you honed in on a broken system. I think one of the things to help me would be to understand what is the role of a mayor. I understand the role of a senator. Sure. But I don't understand the role of a mere war. Where's your role? And how do you work with the other components of government? So I think there's my view of it is there's two functions for any public official. Not just a mayor. I think function number one is, and when you're a mayor, you're an executive, right as opposed to a congressman or a senator who's a legislator, mayor's governors and presidents or executives. Congressman represent state representatives, councilman, they're all legislators. So I think as executive, your number one rule is to run your organization well, like a CEO's number one rules to run their government well, their corporation will. And so for us, the fact that we have the second lowest tax rate since the 1960s at the year before last, we had the lowest homicide rate since 1954 that we have the second highest bond rating I'm sorry we have the highest bond rating cities ever had, which is the second highest bond rating that is available to cities. Those are how the city lowest homeless rates in 2013 were hopefully going to eradicate homelessness in our city. Those are the things that go to have a mayor how an executive runs their company. But I think there's a second thing that every executive needs to have, which is they need to be a leader. And leading is not everyone does it, and there has to be a secondary component, which.

"So I think mayor Buddha checking some other mayors have run. A lot of mayors have run in the past. No one's really sort of broken that mayoral sealing, if you will, to run for president as mayor, not that I'm aware of. But I think we live in such a different world. Such a disruptive world. And I think with social media, with 24 hour news, a cable where you're constantly mayors, I've gotten a bigger platform on national platform with podcasts like this that are being viewed by millions and millions of people. And I think Bitcoin and generally speaking is held by a lot more people than what people think. And I think that's one of the things that has been very, very evident to me in my tweets and in my social media is that there's this runway, right? There's this, I call it a portal of positivity where there's millions and millions of people in this country that are very, very conversant in Bitcoin and I think that's something that America is starting to discover. It's kind of like a silent majority. Well, it's a very American idea because it is. Very high. It is a very American idea and it's this country in the world has sort of gotten away from some of the ideas that made it successful. And what's interesting about Bitcoin is several things. Obviously, one, the fact that it was anonymously created, I think that's sort of unusual. That no one said, hey, this is my creation. I want to take, you know, sort of authors responsibility. I was probably a lot of good reasons why the person did that. Or the group of people did that. I think the second thing is it is creating a solution where human beings have failed. And I think that, for me, is an exciting and interesting reality, which is that there are things in this society that can be disrupted radically by people who have redesigned the process and sort of thought through the process in advance, which is what computer programming is, right? We're going to set a set of protocols. They've made a transparent and open-sourced so that people can see it. People can play with it. People can improve it if necessary, which is why I think Bitcoin has not succumbed to the napster or the MySpace. You know what I mean in terms of being sort of the first of its kind, but then other things come and supplant it, right? The fact that it's open-source and that there's a vast community of people that are that are able to reprogram it, if necessary, adjusted or make adjustments if necessary, which really hasn't happened all that much. But it's there. And I think that allows for flexibility, improvement, variability..

"One of the biggest art fairs in the U.S. has just wrapped up. It's called art Basel, and it takes place every December in Miami. And while we aren't exactly in the market for some high priced art ourselves, we were curious how this year's fair one. Particularly because of one kind of digital art that's gotten a lot of attention recently. NFTs are the talking points of the fair this year. That's Anna Brady, the art market editor of the art newspaper. As a reminder, NFTs are like totally unique digital baseball cards. And NFT can basically be anything digital. From a tweet to a music album, a web page, a meme, and the list goes on. You'll never physically own an NFT, but you do get bragging rights. Brady told us the hype around NFTs started back in the spring. They suddenly come in to the mainstream art market, which really happened this march when people sold an NFT through Christie's for $69.3 million and it just kind of completely turned everything upside down. It's really been since then that the kind of mainstream art market started to take it seriously and embrace this whole new art form. NFTs are unique for a few reasons. For one, records of who owns NFTs are stored on blockchain. The same thing that powers cryptocurrencies, and artists can also keep making money because they can continue to produce and sell copies of their NFTs. As opposed to, say, the Mona Lisa where only the OG copy exists. We'll be honest, NFTs definitely confuse some people, including us and Brady at first. I think a lot of us are still quite perplexed by NFTs. I won't lie. I mean, there's so many breast releases. And so many stories about NFTs and various developments in that sphere coming in. And remember a lot of people in this world are like art historians as well. We're not techie people as such. And so it's a lot of getting your head around a whole new art form and a whole new valley system as well. But it's definitely bought an energy and a sort of much needed energy when the physical art world couldn't really happen still for a lot of this year. But now, one of the most prestigious art fairs in the world is starting to embrace this unconventional art form, and that's partly because art Basel is located in Miami. It's a city that's recently attracted the tech community, thanks to the city's leadership going all in on bringing tech firms there. Even the city's mayor Francis Suarez has said he'll take his salary in Bitcoin. And he's been really on a charm offensive to try and persuade a lot of Silicon Valley set to relocate to Miami. So he has succeeded in some ways in attracting a kind of younger wealthy tech community. Got it. So people who swap Silicon Valley for the beach are making NFTs a whole lot more popular. And NFTs represent a totally different direction for the art world, which has been pretty old school for a long time. That seems like a big shift, but we wanted to know how else has the art market changed recently. Brady told us, fairs and galleries have taken a look in the mirror and realized they need to start showcasing more diverse artists. It's interesting specifically with this fair, they have made quite a big attempt to broaden the diversity of their exhibitor base first of all they've decided that they're going to release in the entry requirements, which basically insisted that a gallery should have a physical premises somewhere. They have leasing that, which is allowed a much more diverse gallery based to come in. So they've got a few more black owned galleries and they have also got, for instance, quite a few more African galleries. If you're thinking, fancy art parties don't exactly seem like the most inclusive environment, you're not the only one who's skeptical. But Brady says, she's hoping these recent changes will open up other doors for more people to experience art and even own art in the future. These really big high end pairs like our Basel Miami kind of thrive off this exclusivity. The fact that people quite like to be able to get in there, they like to be seen there. So there is a bit of attention on this between this embracing of the energy community who like to see themselves as being very egalitarian and inclusive. And this rarefied high end art world. The art world has realized that it has to be more inclusive on certain levels. There's been a lot of self examination going on by a lot of these institutions and they've realized quite how incredibly white they've been and certainly in terms of exhibited face. You know, it's not unusual to go to an out there for them not to be a single black owned gallery there. So I think they've really been kind of looking themselves and sort of looking more broadly geographically and in terms of the background to these.

"Is sponsored by the institutional grade class form dedicated to building a more inclusive financial system through bitcoin to find out more about nine big in their mission to bring bitcoin to all go to ninety dot com slash nl. W that's d i g forward slash and l. w. Let's move onto anything else notable from this hearing. Well there are a couple of things representative warren davidson who is also a member of the congressional blockchain caucus further hammered yellen on a lack of regulatory clarity and asked her to define digital assets in the context of tax accounting yellen for her part sort of side shifted and said that the irs was in the process of issuing quote detailed regulations. That will answer that question. And there was one other thing worth noting. Even though it's not crypto specifically in short the irs wants to enact new regulations requiring banks to report annual inflows and outflows from all accounts over six hundred dollars. Every time you spend six hundred and one dollars or six hundred one dollars comes into your account for any reason banks would now have to report that to the irs. Yellen confirmed that this was the case and that these changes were necessary to address what she claimed was an estimated seven trillion dollar tax gap quote. Yes we have proposed both augmenting. The resources of irs so that the irs gets insight into opaque sources of income seven trillion dollar tax gap Given that these are the same folks who estimated tax evasion in the us at thirty billion dollars or so annually. Forgive me if i'm disinclined to accept those numbers on face value. Meanwhile it is not just congress. That is making a stink about the six hundred dollar reporting requirement. Cynthia lumps of wyoming is not happy she tweets. I've received a mountain of correspondence from wyoming on the six hundred dollar bank reporting provisions nestled in the ds latest multi trillion dollar package. It's spying it's unnecessary. It's so broad. It's a violation of the fourth amendment. The fourth amendment of course is the one that prevents unreasonable search and seizure. And i think there's going to be a lot more discussion of this to come up. However i said that this was up tober and let's not be pulled into the politico b. s. So what else has people excited. Of course you have to look over at the. Bitcoin volcano mining in el salvador. By way of background on twitter spaces right after el salvador announced. It's bitcoin plans president nabu. Kelly started basically live brainstorming about whether they could harness geothermal energy from volcanoes for bitcoin mining the next day he tweeted that he had instructed his engineers into look into it and now a couple months later he has tweeted a chart showing that they've officially mind their first bitcoin about two hundred and sixty dollars worth with volcano power as he tweeted. We're still testing and installing but this is officially the first bitcoin mining from the volcano d- a volcano does a great term. and be. this is why people are willing to give boo kelly who has some concerning tendencies for those who are used to watching democracies struggle with authoritarian tendencies. This is the type of fast moving quick action that gets people excited about ninety boo kelly even though there are these major questions about to what extent he will remain within a democratic process framework versus given to more authoritarian tendencies. That whole discussion is a little bit. Beyond what i wanna get into today for now. I just want to highlight and show people's excitement around volcano power for mining. Bitcoin a couple more random bullish things outside of bitcoin. In miami mayor francis suarez has envisioned for tax free city and one of his approaches to that. He's partnering with these city coins protocol which is built on stacks stacks being a protocol for enabling smart contracts on bitcoin and basically the ideas that residents hold and trade miami coin which represents a stake in the municipality when they run software they are in seventy percent with thirty percent returning to the municipality. Apparently miami coin has generated seven million dollars in revenue. So far and on the court degenerates sixty million dollars. The miami coin website says the goal is quote. The city of miami can elect to use. It's growing crypto treasury to benefit the city and its constituents think new public spaces improvements to infrastructure hosting city events recruiting startups and more suarez has also been courting crypto minors to set up in south florida's turkey point nuclear power plant. So it's very clear that this man is not sleeping on crypto and bitcoin specifically now. Of course anytime you introduce tokens that are not bitcoin. There's going to be controversy among bitcoin. But i thought sensible nick carter had a really good solution to this problem when he tweeted. I will stop grumbling about miami coin if some of the proceeds are used to create a gigantic statue of satoshi possibly in front of the f. t. x. arena. Those are my terms a couple more things to wrap us up. There is a tick tock moments and f. t. collection coming around six culturally significant tick-tock talk videos air quotes. Those are there are quotes. These are viral videos from lil naza. Expel porch gary bainer chuck and basically each of these viral video. Creators will be collaborating with a set of artists to create an ts to celebrate their viral videos. Some of the proceeds will go to charity. Other proceeds will go to the creators. I think this is cool. Sort of whatever it highlights for me. An open question of which segments of the industry have long term legs. The punks and things of that nature seemed to have a clear path. They are now status. Symbols and tokens for an og set of the crypto community. Who made lots of money that to me is far more than you need to sustain an artistic store evalu- type of community and be a top shot. Had a great first run remember. It was the first breakout. Nf t the question is can it rerun the second season. There have been a lot of frustrations among top shot users. And now dapper labs is partnering with the nfl with spain's lalita to recreate the sort of top. Shot magic if it happens a second time both within the nba and in other communities. I think it'll be clear that there seems to be a thing there for this. Type of video highlight memorabilia. This sort of moment. This sort of viral moment capture from tick tock. I have a lot more questions about. But i suppose at the end of the day will only learn by people. Trying and people are excited like i said. Finally the san. Jose mayor is partnering to put. Helium nodes that mine h. n. T. helium tokens to pay for low income residents internet access. So san jose is partnering with the california emerging tech fund which will purchase twenty helium. Minors the will then hold all the mind h. n. t. convert the tokens to prepaid cash. Cards and then hand those out to low income residents to allow them to pay for internet expenses. The plan is designed to help over thirteen hundred low income san jose residents in its first year. Helium is a project that a lot of people are super stoked on the idea of a decentralized internet provider has a lot of people very excited. It's probably worth coming back to more for some time for me. The question is how much is this. A change in kind versus a novel payment scheme not that a novel payment scheme that gets people internet access wouldn't be cool in its own right but either way the point here in the context of the show is that october is here and there are nothing but good vibes until tomorrow guys.

"Is the conclusion of the insane stories about john. Paul george and ringo. This land is an award. Winning music troupe. Prime podcast about musicians getting away with murder and behave very badly bowed graceland on amazon music. So you don't miss any true crime antics. Now only on amazon music so is there any with the partisanship and with webbed the is is there any potential blowback i mean we know republicans in this country. Don't do anything. Without some other long-term agenda it would seem is there any blowback for the bite administration or democrats in general in florida or in in this. Well i think that florida democrats have handled this pretty well. Because we're from here. We're used to this issue. We get it. Okay you know we get that. Communism is bad bright. We get the castro. Zhima has been horrific for many many years. I mean i. i've a friend who's an attorney and he suing over their practice of essentially endenturing doctors and sending them to other countries to to make money for cuba right. I mean think about it like could you imagine your doctor being indentured to the state and ship to a foreign country to take care of people in some foreign country so that the united states could get revenue from that doctor. What cubans doing right now. So we're all familiar with this The the issue with party conflict comes when you have people that aren't as educated about the history of cuba. The party's history cuba why these things are happening. All the issues with people on the ground. That are real. But then there's the flipside of it right so you have democrats that are like not fully like ingrained in these issues right but you have republicans that are even local right in particular. Miami's mayor francis suarez. Who is setting himself. Up as the telegenic successor to marco rubio but pretending to not be very partisan person he's extremely partisan i know him pretty. Well you know he's somebody who One of the first things he did after he gained elective office was actually inviting rubio to his office. I mean i haven't been invited to the office. You know so i can just tell you that You know his position of seeking a an intervention. It just runs counter to all american political thought on both sides of the aisle right. Now when you think about it you know. I mean americans want to get our troops out of wars that we can't win like if we sent american troops to cuba like you think afghanistan was bad like cuba would not be very different. Really not yeah. Cuba has mountains. I mean it's an island like you'd have to become the dictator of cuba to control cuba practically. Especially if you're not you know you don't have popular legitimacy and that's the problem right now. The castros are gone. Right role is on the sidelines. He's ninety years old renounced his last official titles. He's still there but not running things and you know they've they've kept the mandate of the people because of the propaganda right because they have a walled garden on their internet. I mean they they keep look. My writing was banned in cuba. And you could get the miami herald and google and the new york times back in twenty fifteen..

Oftentimes you don't understand that things are changing and they're changing permanently and they have to adopt quickly. When did you get it. I mean did you know about this sort of shift before you were elected in two thousand seventeen or did this just happened.

Don't work by policies that don't work and frankly you know the decision to leave. A particular city is very difficult. Decision particularly our family and to approve your family and say i'm going somewhere else. That is not easy and so for me. I find it very hard to believe.

"Welcome to the kaleidoscope where every week we'll discuss the issues of race gender LGBTQ and income inequality this week we begin with Miami mayor Francis Suarez who's been cured of the corona virus as the leader of a city filled with people of color he's thinking about what his experience with the illness means he got out of quarantine this week you know we're scared when I found out and it was also you know it was it was a lot of pressure because I was only the second person in Miami Dade County county three million people that tested positive and and and I was the mayor so imagine you know the you know the fear of of of not understanding exactly why not just what I was going to go to a personal level by admin alone of course because I had to isolate you my wife you know my kids can be can be with me and then and then the the the fado I have to go public with this because you know this is not only because of the amount of people that I come into contact with but you know I I'm I'm running a government and and my wife is very public so it all that sort of Russian at the same time and and you know as long as it went public I decided to turn on to conduct its own course how has this experience affected how you deal with preparations going on in your city your fabulous and beautiful city which I love but there are a lot of people of color in that city and communities of color have been at some risk from this virus have they not the city of immigrants you know where city or minority city where minority we're sitting with minorities and majority and you know and so we were probably the first city in America to cancel large events we did that we were criticized by some local leaders here the county mayor and others that said that we're acting prematurely and then then only later to have to themselves cancel large events and and so one of the things I can tell you is that I have you know in all the dramatic steps that are taking the lead at there have never ever been a moment where I look back and regret it taking a more dramatic step everything that you know everything that we've seen is those who take this lightly later on end up coming along because they realize the severity of this I mean we've had a president say that conservatives speaking we're looking at tension between a hundred thousand two hundred fifty thousand deaths and I think that just like when the NBA decided to cancel a season ending these were like watershed moments when people start to look at this differently and and and those that are relaxing or those that are you know considering the weight of what this impact would be economically versus you know protecting against the virus that that that Benjamin swings back and so I I I sold very very comfortable of being the first mayor to to cancel our defense only the second seeded up a standalone order date county before she came to America curfew the first city to do in home testing for the elderly we are the first obviously they're doing testing at a predominantly African American area and so you know for us what we're really proud of of of protecting our residents and leading in those and those are Ornish's Miami mayor Francis war
