The Incoherent Manifesto That Is the 'Margarita Declaration on Climate Change'

"I want to introduce you. To something that occurred in July 18 2014 7 short years ago. And on that date, a large number of delegates from radical groups throughout the world gathered to issue a joint proclamation called The Margarita Declaration on Climate Change. Revealing that their proclamation leads with a quote from Venezuela's late Marxist. Dictator Hugo Chavez quote. Let us go to the future. Let us bring it and so it here. Of course, thanks to Chavez and his successor, Nicolas Maduro. The Venezuelan economy and society are devastated. People are dying of starvation. And seeking refuge in the United States and other countries. There's a complete breakdown in health care and basic public services, and the government is a violent police state that represses any and all dissident voices. Indeed, the proclamation reads like a modern version of Marxist Communist Manifesto. Laced with environmental declarations and platitudes. While it is insipid and absurd on so many levels, it is also dangerously appealing and increasingly acceptable. As a matter of national international

The Most Notorious Marxist Extremists Were Similarly Aged as College Millennials

"So I point out, it is unsurprising that the world's most renowned and notorious Marxist revolutionaries. Of the same mindset and also Went to college. They were millennials. Vladimir I mean, excuse me, Lenin. His biography includes that he was born in a well educated family excelled at school and went on to study law at the university was exposed to radical thinking. His views were influenced by the execution of his older brother. Remember the Revolutionary group. Expelled from the university for his radical policies. Lenin completed his law degree is an external student in 18 91. And then he moved to ST Petersburg and became a professional revolutionary. Although mall was born in a peasant family, his biography explains that he trained as a teacher and he traveled to Beijing We worked in the university library is During this time he began to read Marxist literature in 1921. He became a founding member, the Chinese Communist Party. Cambodia's Pol Pot came from a relatively prosperous families, biography states that he was educated in a series of French speaking schools in 1949. He won a scholarship to study in Paris where he became involved in communist politics and I could go on. I can go on about Castro. Another one. Fairly well to do family. His father owned a farm. He went to law school. Hugo Chavez. Recently. Well to do was in the military overthrew the government. Not a perfect model, but it is a overwhelmingly accurate model.

There is a Surge Of Coronavirus Deaths in Mexico

"New data reveal a surge of cova deaths in mexico. The country has officially confirmed more than two million cases. An almost one hundred eighty thousand deaths from the corona virus but mortality rates. Tell an even more grim tale over the past year deaths were fifty two percent higher than in previous years. According to the financial times that puts mexico's rate of excess deaths much higher than that of countries such as america and brazil assembled woman to stay lot yet earlier this month. Mexico's president andres manuel. Lopez obrador widely known as anglo said. We are living in a stellar moment. The kovic spike is far from the country's only problem poverty. Corruption and crime are all on the rise but polls indicate that two years into amyloid term. Most mexicans are willing to give him more time. Mexico's president is incredibly popular. Sir burke is our mexico bureau chief he wanted on slide in two thousand eighteen and he still has approval ratings that most other leaders would be extremely jealous off at sixty two percent as it stands and that's all in spite of what looks like a very good handling of most things most obviously at the moment the pandemic. What do you mean by that. Mexico is a terrible record for covert hospitals are full and oxygen tanks in short supply. It's done very few tests for covid. It hasn't provided very much financial support tool for people who are suffering or being asked to stay home not to work the vaccination which is one sort of bright spot potentially insofar as mexico has lined up enough vaccines to cover its population. But it's a very very slow start. That might be picking up now. But otherwise there talks of ten years to get to seventy five percent of the population being vaccinated. I'm currently this has been a problem again from the top. So i'm low has completely downplayed the importance of the pandemic. He has refused to wear a face mask apart from wants when he flew in an airplane to go to the united states and he got covid himself the stars of this year and he reappeared and everyone thought well. Maybe he'll have changed his mind after this. But he reiterated again that he wouldn't be wearing a face mask so in the face of that pandemic response on wires his popularity still so high so he had this amazing vision for mexico in eighteen. Which is why he won with a landslide. He said. I'm going to do a fourth transformation. These big bold plan to make the country fairer and more equitable ending corruption and crime. And making sure there was economic growth where the gains were fairly distributed so that poor people go rich. The reality is slightly different from the vision so far in the two and a bit years. He's been in power. He's been undoing. The reforms of previous presidents and dismantling that system throwing out the baby with the bath water you could say. And then his new initiatives mainly they seem to fail to solve the problems that they put two and then a of third element is that he's really concentrated power in the presidency and some people say that they get things done and other people think they're more evil intentions behind that well. Let's come back to the throwing the baby out with the bathwater part. What's he'd been doing. In terms of reform he abolished prosper. Which was a very sort of lauded conditional cash transfer program for the poor he also reversed education. Reform was much more meritocratic assessment of teachers. A big one at the moment is he's trying to reverse bit by bit and opening of the energy market. That happened in two thousand thirteen so it was open to private and foreign enterprises which make electricity cheaper and greener on current. Neither congress is debating a bill which would favor cfe which is state owned electricity provider. So they're actually go first into the grid. As opposed to the cheaper electric which is often green provided by private companies. This would obviously raise prices and deti energy but it could also breach the. Us mexico canada agreement. Which is the north american free trade pact to replace after another sort of big thing has been getting rid of or proposing get rid of a lot of the autonomous agencies such as the freedom of information agency all these ones keep checks on the government and what it's doing so well he's been tearing all that down. What's he been building up. Will you say his own initiatives. Don't do what they should. He's very dedicated to fiscal discipline. That's a good thing especially in a so-called left leaning president it's also become very counter productive during the pandemic. The imf is telling mexico to spend more so far it's only spent nine point seven percents of gdp on extra efforts during the pandemic and more needs to be done and some people think this is going to need to scarring that there's going to be permanent drop in output caused by loss of jobs and businesses so the recovery is going to be much much slower in mexico than elsewhere. He's also splashed out on bizarre old-economy projects such as pouring money. Pex the world's most indebted oil company. And then he's putting eight billion dollars into a refinery at the time when no other country is building refineries and it's not clear what economic return that will be from that and you mentioned the big transformative plan was in part about ending endemic corruption and crime. How's that been going. Well either jason. That was point. Four percent dip in murders last year and he proclaimed this dip as a very significant success. But that's after a rise the before and frankly during the pandemic you'd expect it to have dropped them. In in other countries across latin america that also suffer high levels of violence that has been the case he also rejected the previous government's tactic of killing and capturing crime kingpins because led to a splintering of gangs. And you might be worth rejecting that. But there's no alternative puts in place. So i think his vision is that you alleviate poverty and crime goes down. That might happen in the long term but it does nothing to sort out the short term problem the problem of the current chapel as opposed to the ones who are still only three years old on corruption. As you could say he's set a good example so has been good political rhetoric. The stiffer penalties on bribe-taking for bureaucrats. But he's unless strengthen the institutions to carry that ford again it's more rhetoric than actual institutional change or heft. The national anticorruption prosecutors overwhelmed with cases and one government agency suggests that the number of acts of corruption actually rose by nineteen percent between two thousand seventeen and two thousand nineteen. It is as you say not a big list of happy news here. I mean when will that's ring down to the electorate. I mean how long we'll mexicans continue to support him for his failures because he really has persuaded a lot of people that he's like them and cares about the he's very popular because of who he is and his message rather than necessarily what he does. The opposition is seen as corrupt on what came before him was horrifically corrupt. And so he's seen the best of a bad bunch by a loss of people. But you know here's a classic populace and a lot of elite azam Against him they see him as a mexican version of hugo chavez. Which i think is a little bit of an exaggeration. But there's this big divides on the mix of policy failure. I'm power grabbing is is worrying.

Pro-Trump mob storms the US Capitol, touting 'Stop the Steal'

"So we walked through how we got here. But it doesn't quite do justice to that queasy feeling you got when you saw people marching through the halls of congress and breaking down doors when you saw crowds of people cheerfully waving their flags from the capitol balcony. So i wanna bring. Abc's chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl and abc senior. National correspondent. Terry moran terry what did a day like. This mean for the united states of america. What do you take away from it. A dark day for the country and i think most people feel that way. This is one of those days that that that will remember and that will be remembered. I if it fades into the mist of history. I'll be surprised because it is something that's never happened this this mob. What does it mean it means. We got through this election. By the skin of our teeth they failed to attempt to obstruct the congress. This failed insurrection. Only underscores how crucial the task before us is for our republic. Joe biden one. Absolutely no doubt about that. But if we're not for the person of mike pence and mitch mcconnell maybe in a couple of other people you know. This mob might have represented the end of the democracy. That's what they wanted. They wanted to stop the certification counting of electoral votes certified by fifty states and give the election to their guy donald trump. Nobody knows what the hell is going on. There's never been anything like this. We will not let them. Silence your voices. we're not gonna let it happen one thing. I was struck by the chance. Fight for trump fight for trump not fight for america. This is a movement in our country and it reached a terrible bloody apex at the cap. Very jonathan karl. I mean you were keeping track of of not just congress not just washington but like inside. The white house has a switch flipped in washington when it comes to how people see the president and his his mission here. My sense is that we are looking at the end of the trump era. All i can say as count me out. Enough is enough of tried to be helpful. I think you saw a moment here. Where donald trump after a string of losses that led to this day loss on november third the losses in in georgia and the senate races in good conscious object to the certification of these electors not to mention the override of of of the veto. That happened On on new year's day You know the president has has seen a a series of things that haven't happened throughout his presidency. Which is losses at the hands of republicans. If you vote to overturn these elections. Wouldn't it be the opposite of what states rights. Republicans have always advocated for them. This would do m- the electoral college forever. And there were certainly a lot of speculation. i think we we had spoken about the possibility of donald trump going back to mar-a-lago and mounting a comeback or at least becoming a kingmaker in the republican party. I after yesterday to those who wreaked havoc in our capital. Today you did not win. Violence never wins. Freedom wins and this is still the people's house. I don't really think donald trump As republican kingmaker is is a likely scenario after after january. Six or after january twentieth. Does it go beyond that jump. Because you know you heard terry talking about mitch. Mcconnell in even mike pence these forces that were kind of constraining president trump. But how far could that go. I mean what kind of constraints could we see. On president trump going forward. It turned out that it was not his orders that got the national guard into washington. Dc you've got people resigning out from under him overnight. Essentially saying were sickened by all this. And now we're even giving talk about like the twenty fifth amendment. Is that a serious possibility. I there is We we have confirmed. There have been members of the cabinet. Who have had conversations about the twenty fifth amendment that would be effectively removing the president because he is mentally incompetent mentally unable to do the job. those conversations are happening and they're happening not just among the cabinet where it's relevant but also among The president's allies some of the president's allies on capitol hill But that's a. That's a really steep climb. That is an extraordinary thing. You would need in a vice. President can submit a declaration to congressional leaders saying the president is unfit for the job. The president now can contest that and if the vice president and cabinet persist that would lead to a vote in congress but that has never happened before under circumstances such as these now. That's a real long shot. But it just gives you a sense of where we're at and how how worried people very close to donald trump are that those conversations are in fact happening. I'm sure that there are responsible members of the cabinet. Who right now are thinking about. What are their obligations under the oath that they took. And they're not thinking about those things they should be dairy whose complicit in what we just saw i mean you know. I think that's the question that it's going to be weighing on a lot of people going forward here is. Is it enough to say. I condemn violence. But i do believe this. Election was a sham with without any evidence whatsoever like what are the legacies of essentially everyone else in washington stemming out of these events well i think as senator ben sasse republicans nebraska put. It lies have consequences. America isn't hatfields and mccoys. Blood feud forever. america's union. There are a lot of reasons to vote for donald trump. There are lots of reasons to vote against joe biden or against hillary clinton but to tell the american people lies That the election was stolen by some combination of software companies Hugo chavez out of the grave and i don't know the bigfoot that has consequences and to stir it up and drive people to the point of you're telling people they're stealing your country from you. They're stealing your country. They're going to take your guns and they're gonna. They're gonna slaughter babies and kidnap them and put them in a file rings and all the rest of it to wind people up like that. What do you think is going to happen seriously. Especially under the leadership of donald trump. Who has a gift for bloody language as a gift for stirring people up. But we're going to try and give our republicans the weak ones because strong winds. Don't need any of our help. We're going to try and give them the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country he's in march to the capitol and he said show you aren't gonna win by weakness it takes strength. Be strong up there. You know that whole rhetoric of of brutishness in violence and the fist is is the real power anybody who went along with that and plenty. Did the american people may very well judge you to be complicit but i would just say. I'm not as sanguine as john about this is all over. You know these kinds of movements sometimes take fuel from an event like this a lot of republicans. Now have a taste for this kind of this kind of politics. Look what happened in the house. Some of the people who breach the capital today we're not trump supporters. They were masquerading as trump supporters. And in fact were members of the violet. Terrorist group antifa more than half of house. Republicans voted to nullify the election after after the mob attacked the capital. That tells you that. I think this is a long way from being dead.

I want to get this is the final segment on many of you have been asking about the Dominion voting machines. Um, how was Venezuela involved? How is Germany involved in our elections? Um, Sydney, pal. Um, shit. If you remember Michael Flynn. She was his attorney. She is ah, very noteworthy attorney and she knows what she's talking about. I mean, fact, fact fact fact You shouldn't have any questions about the voting machines. After listening to her. She spoke right after Rudy Giuliani. This will be the final segment of that press conference, and then we'll get to your calls. Go ahead. What we're really dealing with here and uncovering more by the day is the massive influence of communist money through Venezuela, Cuba. And likely China in the interference with our elections here in the United States. The Dominion voting Systems. The Smartmatic technology software and the software that goes in other computerized voting systems here, as well, not just Dominion were created in billions in Venezuela. At the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election after one constitutional referendum came out the way he did not want it to come out. We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Linwood and the lawsuit he filed in Georgia. It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez while the was being briefed on how it worked. He was with you guys. Chavez when He saw it operate to make sure the election came out his way. That was the express purpose for creating the software. He has seen it operate and as soon as he saw the multiple states shut down the voting at the on the night of the election. He knew the same thing was happening here that that was what had gone on. Now the software itself was created with so many variables and so many back doors that could be hooked up to the Internet or thumb drives stuck in it or whatever. But one of its most characteristic features is its ability to flip votes. Consent and run an algorithm that probably ran all over the country to take a certain percentage of votes from President Trump and flip them to President Biden. Which we might never have uncovered. Had the votes for President Trump not been so overwhelming in so many of these states that it broke the algorithm that had been plugged into the system, and that's what caused them to have to shut down. In the states they shut down in. That's when they came in the back door with all the mail in mail in ballots, many of which they had actually fabricated somewhere on Christine Paper with identically matching perfect circle dots for Mr Biden. Others were shoved in and batches there always put in a certain number of batches, and people would rerun the same batch. This corresponds to our statistical evidence that shows incredible spikes. In the vote counts at particular times, and that corresponds to eyewitness testimony of numerous people who have come forward and said they saw the ballots come in the back door at that time. Notably, the Dominion executives had are nowhere to be found. Now they are moving their offices overnight to different places. Their office in Toronto was shared with one of the sorest entities. One of the leaders of the Dominion Project in Overall is Lord Malik Brown, Mr Soros number two person in the U. K and part of his organization. There are ties of the Dominion leadership to the Clinton Foundation and two other known politicians in this country. Just to give you a brief description of how this worked. I'm going to quote from, um A letter that was written and I will read that to make sure I get the quotes right. This person was objecting to the United States acquisition of support of voting systems by Smartmatic, a foreign owned company. Believe this transaction raise is exactly the sort of foreign ownership issues that's iffy asses best position to examine for national security purposes. It's undisputed that Smartmatic is foreign owned, and it is acquired Sequoia. They keep changing the names as they go along different times. When a problem comes up, they just create another corporation and call it a different name. But it was a voting machine company doing business in the United States. Savoia Sequoia voting machines were used to record over 125 million votes during the 2004 presidential election in the United States. Smartmatic now acknowledges that Antonio Mujica Venezuelan businessman has controlling interest in Smartmatic. But the company has not revealed to all the Smartmatic owners are According to the press, smart Matics owners or hidden through a web of offshore private entities, and that is in fact true. Smartmatic has been associated with the Venezuelan government led by Hugo Chavez, which is openly hostile to United States. And, of course, as we all know, Communistic and really brutalizing its own people. The system has been continued their bomb Mr Maduro and ensured his election. Smart Maddox. Possible connection to the Venezuelan government post is a potential national security concern in the context of its acquisition of Sequoia. Because electronic voting machines they're susceptible to tampering and insiders are in the best position to engage in such tampering. This letter expresses concern of the Chicago 22,006 primary election. And it ends by saying the products and services that are Venezuelan origin and evaluate smart Maddox ownership to determine who could have influence and control over these and other support of products and services are important to the national security of the United States. This letter was written to Hank Paulson. On October 6 2006 by Congresswoman Carolyn Be Maloney, Congress, Senators Club Usher and Warren have raised these concerns. As recently as December, 2019. Why are government has not taken them seriously? That's beyond my comprehension. Unless they have some of the three letter agencies have used them themselves in other parts of the world, we know that the technology was exported to affect an election in Argentina. That's admitted by our friend who wrote the affidavit about Hugo Chavez and his interest in Smartmatic. Again and not 2006. Carolyn Maloney wrote The Honorable John she know the secretary of the Treasury about the issues. Speaking of smart Matics leadership, one of the smartmatic of patent holders, Eric Coomer, I believe his name is is on the Web as being recorded in a conversation with Antifa. Members of saying that the but he had the election rigged for Mr Biden. Nothing to worry about here and he was going to they were going to F Trump. His social media is filled with hatred for the president and for the United States of America as a whole, as are the social media accounts of many other Smartmatic people. There has been widespread use of this. Dominion itself is utilized in 2000 jurisdictions in 30 states, It has been uncertified ble and multiple states who realized all the problems that it had, including Texas. Experts have described it across the board from a print in Princeton Group of three professors, Tonto experts that we have talked to about its end user vulnerabilities. People can admittedly go in and change Whatever they want. They can set the ratio of votes from one thing to another. They can say that Ah Biden vote counts is 1.25 and the Trump vote counts this 0.75. And those, maybe the numbers that were actually used here. It's not just the swing states that were effective, the algorithm was likely run across the country to effect the entire election. Like I said, we only discovered it this year because of The overwhelming number of votes for President Trump in the swing states, the cause the machines to have to shut down for them to backfill for adding votes. We have evidence of different numbers of votes being injected into the system, the same identical, unique six digit number. Multiple times and at least two states that we've analyzed so far, and I'm talking about like 341,542 votes for Biden and 100,012 for Trump. There's no explanation, no logical explanation for the same numbers being injected 20 minutes apart into the machine. The software manual itself. You can download it from the Internet, and I would encourage you all to read it because it specifically advertises some of these things as features of the system. Why it.

"hugo chavez" Discussed on News Talk 1130 WISN

"We were so you know, so sure that this was going to go our way. The exit polls all said it. You know, people, people just knew it. There was a lot of opposition against, uh, Hugo Chavez. And so, you know, I don't know if you remember this, but Jimmy Carter and his Carter Center went went to Venezuela and they took a look at the machines. But apparently I don't know what shenanigans were pulled. But they decided. You know what? These machines air? Fine. They're you know, they're the elections Legitimate. Chavez is still president. Right? That was Jimmy Carter's take on it. So so anyway, So you know, Maria Corina was just beside herself. And this is what super interesting and very much a parallel of what's happening today they treated her Like the media and the Democrats and some Republicans are treating Sydney power right and words. They're saying that she's a conspiracy theorist that she has no evidence that she's just, you know, saying it because she doesn't like the results. And so so anyway, so that really took me back to my accordion and what she did for for those elections in Venezuela. I want to stop. You Don't stop here for a second. It's deputy sues movie maker A great singer friend of mine from Venezuela originally so she knows a lot about what's happening down there. Let me ask you what I think it's a very simple question about these machines. You question the machines. This woman that you're talking about this activist woman who's like Sarah Palin down there is question the machines. Jimmy Carter goes down like he knows something about these machines. He knows nothing. He can't certify anything. The lie was that the machines can hook up to the Internet. That's incorrect. Of course, they could look up to the Internet. You can also change the votes, allegedly threw a thumb thumb drive plugged into these machines. So we know there are problems there. We don't necessarily like Venezuela, that the leadership anyway. Leadership doesn't like us. Why the heck do we have smartmatic machines in this country? Why do we have Dominion machines in this country, knowing that there are at least very loud questions. About the validity of the elections there under a dictator Hugo Chavez. And now, Maduro. Why are they here? Do you know how they got here? I haven't. I haven't idea. So when you finish with the Jimmy Carter thing. So basically every year that Jimmy Carter went down to say that the elections in Venezuela because every national election Has been fraudulent and actually in two and 2012. That was Hugo Chavez's last election before his death, and and Jimmy Carter went down there. But guess who else had his hand in that? A name that comes up a lot. Um, George Sorrows. So George Soros is open society was also a part of the Carter Center's going down there to check and make sure that it was legitimate. So I believe that the reason that these that these machines were made in the first place was to rig elections and because they knew that these elections were rigged in Venezuela, they knew that this is how they could rig them. I believe that Mr Soros and the people that hate this country You know, America is his price right? He's trying to socialize and from what I'm told, Mr. Soros has had his his hand in all of the Central America and Latin America elections because he wants all these countries to be socialist, But he also wants America to be Socialists. So I believe that somehow he's related to all of this, and that's how that's how the million and Here's the thing. I believe that Smartmatic had to change. It's it's kind of it's its feathers, sort of secret strike, or you want to say it, and they had to change the name so that people wouldn't link it to Smartmatic. And Sequoyah, which is also linked to Smartmatic. But I will tell you, Smartmatic, Sequoia Dominion. It's all the same thing. So so this is this is my opinion. Obviously, I can't prove it. But because I know for a fact that Jimmy Carter and George Soros had their fingerprints all over the Venezuelan elections. I believe that they do here is well, well, We're not a court of law. You have to prove it. I mean, we already know that Smartmatic and Dominion are all the same thing. And the other is Sequoia. They're the same thing. We know that to be a fact. When people talk about evidence, improving things that's to be done in court. When you've got, you know, signed affidavits from hundreds of people who say I saw This fraud going on. I see the games they were playing. I know that these machines were this way and now something that that way and by the way Also, people were running the same ballot through many, many times. Let me ask you very quickly about the media in Venezuela leading up to Chavez taking power Maduro keeping power is the media also compliant with them The way our media here is compliant with the left in this country, the media is lying about there being a certified election and a winner. There is no winner. The media's lying, calling Joe Biden, the president elect of obviously that's just to make us Here. The narrative enough to where we say Okay. He must be the President Elect is the media there? Were they the same There is. They are here basically controlled by one side, Which is what they are here. Obviously, they're all a bunch of liberals. They are their complicity yet now they were complicity by force initially, but then they became complicit with them. Then it really became a A pate system. Right. So the media checks check does the checks and balances for the regime and it's all 11 unit s? Oh, yes, And In fact, we do have some of that here in America via Telemundo via when it is gone, And there are some some TV stations down in Miami that are also part of that regime and fake opposition that we're questioning. In other words, there has been talk in some of these these news outlets. They're like. What do you mean fraud In Venezuela? There was no fraud in Venezuela. Thank you for what they're doing is they're saying that they don't understand why you really Giuliani and Sidney Powell are saying that there's fraud with these machines here when in fact there was no fraud with those machines in Venezuela, and they believe it. That is the narrative that they're trying to push their trying to say, Guys, Wait a minute. Those elections were real legitimate, but but some of us know better. I'm frankly, at the time it steady this suit to go follow her everywhere it make sure you go check out her internationals movies. One last quick question. Maybe a 32nd answer is there recourse for the people of Venezuela to ever get control back in the hands of a democratically elected government? Are they in trouble for a long time? Well, you know what One of the things that I fear is, If if Joe Biden can steal this election, and Donald Trump would not be the president, I don't believe that as well. A stands a chance, either. Wow, That's that's scary stuff. It just is and Debbie. I appreciate the incredible knowledge you have about what's going on down there. And I think there are a lot of parallels What's happening here? Let's talk again very soon. Just continues to unwind, OK? Thank you so much for your time job always appreciate her coming on What great knowledge about what's good, What's happening there? So maybe you could put two and two together now, and we're talking about the same voting system, the same voting software. And it looks like Chavez was going to be re called out. Suddenly he wins 60 to 40. Think about that. Could that be happening here? Why would these machines be anywhere near our election and listen, even if you don't believe everything that you just heard, Ask yourself one simple question. Why would we have election machines? That somehow were made by or supported by foreign countries and foreign companies. Why would you want that in our election? We wouldn't right. 105 01 70 80 Joe PAGs calm. Stay right here. Okay..

"Is a complicated place. You need someone to expose the political fakers, fixers and takers and cut through the mindless chatter and misdirection to help you make sense of it. All That person is Dan. Croft. But this is the damn profit show. Welcome back to the show follows a damn prop showed calmly confined podcasting program as you can on Spotify, an iTunes at damn prop show and that damn problem Social media, including parlor in the recent entrance into parlor, the parlor arena, so enjoying that getting back toc, the election challenges and all of the detail that was laid out by Rudy Giuliani and Sydney Paolo yesterday, focusing on Sidney Powell. Cause. I think she has the tougher case to make out certainly tougher case to pull together the necessary evidence Toe, perhaps support the Inclusion of forensic software experts, Tonto get hold of source code from these election machine vendors and whatnot and I got to say I mean And I'm not ready Killings Powell here but just on the merits. Her opening statement at that press conference on Thursday afternoon was something out of a John le Carre spy novel. What we're really dealing with here and uncovering more by the day. Is the massive influence of communists money through Venezuela, Cuba and likely China in the interference with our elections here in the United States. The Dominion voting Systems, The Smartmatic technology software and the software that goes in other computerized voting systems here as well, Not just a million were created in billions in Venezuela. At the direction of Hugo Chavez to make sure he never lost an election after one constitutional referendum came out the way he did not want it to come out. We have one very strong witness who has explained how it all works. His affidavit is attached to the pleadings of Linwood. In the lawsuit he filed in Georgia. It is a stunning, detailed affidavit because he was with Hugo Chavez while he was being briefed on how it worked. He was with you guys Chavez when he saw it operate to make sure the election came out his way. That was the express purpose for creating this software. He has seen it operate. And as soon as he saw the multiple states shut down the voting at the On the night of the election, he knew the same thing was happening here that that was what had gone on. For more on this and reaction. We're pleased to be joined again by Scott McKay, publisher of the Hayride contributor to American Spectator, Scott, Thanks for being with us. Hey, Thanks for having me. She described the crack in. She didn't release it on Thursday afternoon. Yeah, I think that's right. I crack. It needs to be released in court, right? I mean, these air sort of evidentiary matters that have to be, uh, put out before a trier of fact, which the media in America is, You know, it's not if it ever has been Um, So you know, I think it Zook to preview it and I You know, one of the things that strikes me about that entire press conference yesterday is Overwhelming media reaction to the, uh, you know, to the point that well, you know, this is a lot of baseless allegations. And you know, you didn't say that about Jeffrey Goldberg. When he brought out this suckers and losers thing. With anonymously, you know, source that unsourced allegations You didn't say that about The New York Times is Quote unquote expose of Trump's tax records or the trump Russia thing, or any of these other things that were clearly baseless or, you know, shot only source. And yet, you know they're running around with affidavits. That you know, it's okay to call it hotly contested or controversial. There were around saying it's baseless and, you know, I think it was obvious by city Powell's tone. That she understood what she was saying was Massive and historic and that you know that the implications off Those allegations are, you know, massive and historic and you know, it's basically the end of her career if she can, at least Get people to discuss what she's saying. In serious terms, Um, ran that It's an uphill battle because the media is not gonna Give her the time of day on this. They're going to call her a kook. Yeah, no, I I think that's all right. And the the challenge he has is getting from and by the way, the idea that space is number one after David's not baseless that Rudy Giuliani is right to say that is evidence. It's evidence that could be contested but still evidence. These are still real people. Making statements under threat of perjury number to the sum of the history of these companies and question is really not in controversy. There are there have been controversies around them that are relevant. It doesn't mean that voter fraud occurred. It doesn't mean that they Where the purveyors of any said voter fraud, But you can't say that these air just baseless accusations. I mean, there's historical record here. But it seems to me that she's got to get over the hurdle of getting AH, handle on the back end of these systems toe, see if there are trails that can substantiate this story that she's telling it. Have you? No forensic computer software auditors on the systems T O make out her claiming it's gonna take more than affidavits, I guess is the upshot is going to take some physical evidence. Yeah, I think that's I think that's true. And you know you're going to need a large mountain of Eyewitness testimony, whether it's from whistleblowers inside those companies or election officials and you know, and another such things. Um you know which You know, it's Sidney Powell didn't build a reputation is one of the best lawyers in the country, You know, not being able to do these things. So you know, I mean, I think it xcar tingly, Valid. Tonto have watched that press conference and go. Wow, They're gonna need to prove all this stuff. But, you know, just having that reaction does not mean that you dismissed the entire thing as oh, You'll never prove that Assumedly. They recognized the difficulty of the task and are prepared for, you know, dealing with that. And if so, then obviously You know you're talking about from Ah, the the practice of law. I mean, you have shot the moon and you've made yourself a legend. If you're able to make this kind of stuff stick, so You know, we'll see. I mean, I think you're right in that. You know Rudy's presentation, which had to do with the old school voter fraud stuff. I mean, I think most almost everything that Rudy said. Um, Woz pretty unassailable. I mean, if you if you start talking about Pennsylvania and essentially the allegation as you run in one election and the Republican counties and another election in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh And that that's a classic equal protection case. Um, if you can prove all of these different things, which most of most of it in Pennsylvania is not all that hard to prove, right?.

Giuliani peddles election conspiracy theories and falsehoods.

"Georgia audit now. Complete the hand count of nearly five million votes reaffirming biden the winner. The first democratic presidential candidate to win the state in nearly thirty years. There was news today about michigan as well where the president lost by about one hundred and forty eight thousand votes. we've now learned. The president has called hit called republican officials in wayne county home to detroit and michigan an eleventh-hour attempt to invalidate votes president trump calling on state. Republicans sleep tonight on your side. History will be on your side. You're conscious side and more knows when you go to meet your maker. Your soul is going to be very very war that along with legal challenges playing out in several states and a public campaign. Alleging voter fraud without evidence here to break it down for us. Chief white house correspondent. Jonathan karl jonathan. It is hard to know where to begin with all of the legal challenges that seem to spin each day. Let's backtrack just a little bit in michigan. With the on again off again certification of votes by canvassers in wayne county and the president reaching out to state leaders. Where does all the stand well You know the the these two republican members of the canvassing board had. I said that they were not going to certify the election and they said they agreed to certify it and then we we learned that the president called them directly. You imagine that you are a local local official on a canvassing board In wayne county michigan and your phone rings and it's donald trump the president of the united states. So it's quite a bit of you know it's quite a bit of leverage with president has and he talked to them but the bottom line is they have certified. It's hard to see out. There are no kind of take back. So we accept the wayne county certification just as we accepted every one of our eighty three counties certification as it was properly made in public vote in public meeting And now moving forward and calling on the board of state canvassers to do the same now. The president is also going to be reaching out in meeting with the republican leaders of the state legislature in In michigan Bringing them to the white house for a meeting and this as his legal team is suggesting that maybe the direction they want to go is to go directly to state legislatures to essentially overrule. How their states voted And to send their own electors to the electoral college. American democracy cracked last night. But it didn't break michelle. I gotta say it's it's a it's a crazy idea. It's basically it's talk of nullifying in election. And i and i should point out that even though these republican leaders From michigan or to meet with the president They have both been on record saying that. That is not the way. It works in michigan state. Legislature doesn't simply you know. Look the other way and not do something on its own in the face of what happened On election day but yet here we are and in terms of all of this is any of its seen as any type of interference. We've got a president a sitting president as well as a candidate in an election. Making phone calls as well as meeting with people that are involved directly with the election. Well there's a lot of strange activity is ranging a lot of questions and we also had a One of i think probably the most bizarre press conference. I've ever seen tied to a president. Good afternoon and thank you. Very much for coming guiliani. And the president's legal team held a press conference at the republican national committee headquarters in washington that you know. Frankly i i. I really don't know how to describe it as the except to say it was unhinged and what emerged very quickly is because it's not a singular voter fraud in one state. This pattern repeats itself in a number. Isn't there was vast conspiracy talk. President trump won by a landslide. We are going to prove it and there was a conspiracy that included a the clinton foundation. That could have been mickey mouse. That could have been a dead person even a mention of hugo chavez who died i don't know i think about seven years ago. These people were further away than my cousin. Vinny was from witnessed. They couldn't see a thing. It would vary very strange. Strange press conference the real thing you need to know though. Is that the legal cases that have been brought by the by. The trump team are going nowhere. They have lost over and over again and they've been forced to withdraw lawsuits while there quickly running out of time on this and so with where we're at with this giuliani and his briefing in the president. Set to meet with people today from those canvassers in that area where republicans at what's the endgame. Republicans for the most part are saying that the president should be allowed to pursue his legal challenges. A as far as they may go to be proof but they're also not for the most part repeating these crazy allegations and privately. They're saying that they know the president's laws have you seen that. I haven't seen proof yet. How many lives do you think are at risk here if this transition remained stalled. Well look. We've you've heard the projections projections. Are that if nothing fundamentally changes between now and beginning february we're like to lose up to four hundred total of four hundred thousand lives and other one hundred fifty thousand lives but of course we're in the middle of the national health crisis we're in the middle of a pandemic and the world doesn't stop. Stir president-elect what do you think the president is doing. What are americans witnessing here. We choose my words think. They're witnessing an incredible irresponsibility credibly damaging messages being sent to the rest of the world about how democracy functions. And i think it is and because of the president's refusal to acknowledge What happened in the election. Well i don't know his motive. But i just think it's totally irresponsible. The team of president elect now biden is not getting the briefings. They're not coordinating with the warp speed team on the vaccine. All all the things that are going to have to be carried out by the biden administration They've been stonewalled by by the president's refusal to accept the election

"The current experiences of the United States should you would think they'd all nations for roll time from allowing celebrities usually entertainers or sports folk loose in the political sphere. It should of course be noted that the US is not not presently unique in succumbing to this fully Ukraine's. President is a comedian Liberia's of football Pakistan's. Prime Minister is a cricketer later. Dozens of lesser offices around the world are held by people who were helped into them buying name recognition acquired in other fields. Well let me tell you something. The answer is clear for the people to win. Politics as usual must lose so things considered it is not that all surprising that a popstar should fancy himself president Uganda Amazon Robert Trigger Alani Santana who performs under the name bobby wine was elected elected to Uganda's parliament in two thousand seventeen he stood as an independent in a by election in Dondo East and one big. I've come the parliament at a very sensitive time. I've just taken an oath to defend resolve and protect the constitution of the Republic Sleep of Uganda and that is going to be my major major goal right now since then wine has positioned himself for the next presidential election due in two thousand and twenty one among the symbols identifying his movement is the red beret worn by whine and his appearance it bears an emblem of of a clenched fist over a map of Uganda and the Motto People Power Our power but not for much longer if a new rule announced by Uganda's the government is observed a useful regulation has been discovered under which it is against the law for civilians to sport military clothing and some units of the Ganden People's defence force notably its military police wear red berries therefore the wearing of the red beret by non soldiers is henceforth punishable by up to five years in the clink. Bobi wine is among those skeptical that this decision is exclusively motivated by a desire to protect the integrity of the Ugandan army's insignia. It is wind said a sham. It is a blatant attempt to suffocate a successful threat to the autocratic status quo. This is pretty obviously correct. It also prompt the interesting question of exactly Walt Uganda's powers that be scared off at which point joint a recap of Uganda's powers that be or more accurately is this area peaceful full in spite of the nobody would start with a piece of Uganda Yoweri Musevenei now seventy five has been president of Uganda since one thousand nine hundred eighty six and plans to run again in two thousand and twenty one by the standards of Ugandan presidents most of any hasn't done a bad job but those standards were set by Idi Amin and Milton Obote both mad and terrible men Mussolini any to his credit played a considerable role in toppling both however as is invariably the case with overstaying and under challenged leaders. Musevenei has become complacent and his government corrupt Transparency International's global corruption index ranks Uganda slightly less bent than as a John which is basically owned by one family and slightly more so than the Central African Republic which is barely governed at all Uganda's population is young young more than three quarters of its people have been born during Musevini's rule and did he is restless certainly sufficiently so to take its chances with sorry pop singer. It's what they bring me. Wine can and claim reasonably that the leap from musician to politician is not in his case a long one. He has been keen campaigner on several issues and many the songs he has recorded in his studio in Cam. What you're a disheveled neighborhood of Kampala have addressed social injustice to the extent that in August he he was charged with intending to alarm annoy or ridicule President Musevini. Yeah this is not the only legal jeopardy presently hanging over wine he also faces charges of incitement to violence and treason and potentially a life sentence. If convicted wine claims that these charges are politically motivated and it would be very far from the first time that Musevini the people acting on his behalf have attempted to arrest opponents into submission invoking article twenty nine of the Constitution. We've got Dante's every citizen the right to assemble and demonstrate we are going to do this peacefully and take me on on the clube wine says he and his supporters. I will continue to wear the red beret. This is arguably a missed opportunity wine cooed by choosing something else. Just striking have have highlighted the silliness of Viennese edict and jettison the baggage associated with this particular item of Hillary in non-military circles. St Red Berry is an almost invariable choice of revolutionary posers and or populist scoundrels from Hugo Chavez in Venezuela to Julius Melena. Amo in South Africa wine would be within his rights admittedly to retort that it costs more of a dash than the disheveled floppy brimmed Bush hat long favored favored by Mussolini and also if it comes to a rap battle on the strength of Musevini's endeavors in this realm wine will up.

Venezuela in crisis

"Venezuela is a country in freefall as economic mismanagement an international sanctions. Combine to create desperately difficult times for its citizens as global debate centers, on who's to blame successive, socialist governments or countries like the US, who are putting the squeeze on the government of nNcholas Maduro, people are struggling for basics like food and medicine. US correspondent Zoe Daniel has recently returned from Venezuela as gentlest Venezuela is not an easy country to work in media vases, difficult to get and even with them in hand report is closely monitored by the authorities and government backed armed groups called collective owes rooms need to be checked for bugs sensitive interviews must be discussed in hushed tons movements should not be telegraphed and should never happen after dark time spent in each location needs to be limited violent crime is also close to the w-. I in the world and much of the story that needs to be told is in the slums, or barrios, where poverty hunger and disparition exacerbates that risk. There are also the gangs who trade in drugs, and ruled the roost in recent months, escalating political tensions have added the risk of protest rallies, turning violent clashes between opposition activists and government troops and proxies, all of this means that the stories of ordinary Venezuelans are infrequently told but when you give them the chance this sentiments a clear. Something by women and men young and old have to realize the critical situation, the country, is going through these days, hunger, misery, repression and unemployment. We spent a week in the slums of Caracas and surrounds talking to people about life and politics. Well, I. Research says that nine out of ten people in Venezuela, count afford enough food, because of hyperinflation, which is rented the local currency almost valueless government food parcels that handed out monthly a dwindling. Sometimes now, they come only every second or third month, and they're often missing case applies like milk. There's widespread frustration and people are starting to voice it. Even with the risk of recriminations, Ropeway sediment Settimio, nothing seems to improve it all gets worse. So I think they should be change to give the opportunity for someone else to rule the situation has created a window of opportunity for opposition later. One guy who was backed by the US, and ustralia among dozens of other countries when he declared himself president after twenty eighteen elections that are widely condemned as flawed, although you get the sense that it's a case of right place. Right. Time rather than one guy DOE, having specifically captured the public imagination ROY Innis weather. It's not just a problem for Venezuela, what the international community has done so far is very important. The recognition of our constitution and of me as interim president Australia did that to what's important. Now is to keep the pressure up the dictatorship won't voluntarily leave. And fortunately them enduro government wouldn't respond to the concerns raised by those who can't get enough food or medicine at a time when political division globally runs deep Venezuela's, plied attracts, at a response almost all of the Venezuelans that I've encountered blame the economic collapse, on mismanagement by successive governments who've nationalized, assets, subsidized goods and services failed to manage the country's oil revenues and allowed endemic, cronyism and corruption. They don't always mention soc. Realism specifically many still harked back formerly to the days of logistics, under, former president Hugo Chavez. But for many observers Venezuela's become a symbol of the broader failure of the socialist model, that's gained particular traction as lift and right retreat to their corners, the world over. However, defenders of socialism, attack outside nations for interfering in Venezuela, particularly the United States, which is imposed harsh sanctions and an embargo on oil Russia, China and Cuba continue to back the Madero administration. And that's a K driver of US involvement. The big picture issues, but for ordinary Venezuelans who've seen they country go from the richest in Latin America to a basket case they just want something to change, so they can feed their families, but from Caracas that's North American correspondent, Zoe Daniel.

"Venezuela is still a big story an update to what's going on there. The opposition continues to question the legitimacy of President, Nicolas Maduro, and Maduro officials are still accusing the opposition of treason. But there's a twist, the government of Norway is now trying to mediate between the two sides event, as Waylon diplomat today confirm that talks have taken place. And also a couple of the issues that divide the two sides corruption and oil specifically, whether Maduro and before m Hugo Chavez, have used the profits from Venezuela's national oil company to create a global criminal enterprise, and proper Venezuela's collapsing economy that is the view of Caitlyn Yates. She's a co author of a new study for the National Defense University called Medeiros last stand. It argues at Venezuela's government is involved in illicit activities, like illegal gold mining and money laundering.

"James? We got a real like tragedy unfolded Venezuela. We're watching this country deteriorate right in front of our high. It's turning into one of the most Hellas places places on earth. And what I find striking is these silence. The silence of some of the former socialist president, Hugo Chavez is Hollywood heroes. The supporters. The silence is deafening. We've got civil unrest in Venezuela. We've got violence. We've got citizen protests got triple digit inflation. We've got rising crime. We've got food shortages. And the very Hollywood set that praised the dictator Hugo Chavez that that Maduro their stone code silent. Where's Danny Glover? Where is on pin? Where is Michael Moore? All of these actors were singing the praises of socialism in Venezuela. These actors spent time shared hugs, would Hugo Chavez. She was Shahbaz is the icon. Of Latin American socialism. This is the guy who's using the same language as Bernie Sanders to say 'em language as a OC. He exonerated the rich established programs intended to read this tribute oil wealth to the poor. That's one of the reasons why Sean pin loved him so much, but the truth that a matter is this. Hugo Chavez was shoveling billions of dollars of the public. It's his own Swiss Bank accounts. The beneficiaries of the says regime has been his family and friends you know, much daughters worth. She's a multi-billionaire in Venezuela. By contrast. Do you know how much doctors make Venezuela? Two dollars and twenty cents a day. If you're elected if you like your doctor, keep your doctor. Nope. Socialism. Over the last twenty years. We have watched the show Vaz's version of socialism. Be constantly praised by the left. They were seduced by chevette as they were seduced by his anti-americanism. They loved his ideology, they ignored the corruption. See this is sort of like a pattern because you had liberals who that the same thing in the nineteen twenties and thirties when it comes to to the Soviet Union. Paul Robeson was seduced by the Soviet all the great Soviet system. These actor as hats believed that the socialist icon was going to help the poor. The matter of fact, though, reality the the poor they suffered even more because they couldn't pay shop as bribes. Oh, there's some some other similarities here check this out. Under the Savvas regime. You saw a rise in political dissent a crackdown on free. Trade unions censorship policies. Outta control anti semitism. Does that sound familiar? Holy glue. That sells like the freshman democrat party, the socialist freshmen in the democrat party. Where's Danny Glover Glover's still alive? We haven't heard from Danni governor Bill when is it going to come back in his role as a Murdoch Murdoch in the? Tom to what what is it Murtaugh, Murtaugh Riggs and Murtaugh Riggs Murdo was was was he rigs? No, he was Murtaugh. What was the movie lethal weapon? Lead the weapon the weapon. I remember them from aliens, though, didn't you fight the aliens a predator to creditor to see I don't I just saw the boobs. I don't remember that kind of stuff name of them. Danny glover. He is still alive. Yes. Okay. Then he gloves so visa alive. He should be able to respond to react to what's going on in Venezuela. I remember he was all hugs and giggles and praises for Shah says when he was reelected. And.

"Getting kind. Good Wednesday and welcome. We are at eight six three zero nine six two five. Everything seems to be going very well in Venezuela for NIA last my doorbell and frizz Powell lead v MIR Patine, I think we have we intercepted a phone call from Putin. I think we might have because there were reports yesterday that that Madeira was about to flee the country and go join us pals in Cuba, another slave ship where he could go live off the fed of somebody else's land and the ill-gotten gains of his corrupt political career having hitched his wagon, Hugo Chavez, the boulevard en- revolutionary. You know, things are going splendidly there in Venezuela. If you're looking to lose weight, it's probably the country for you everybody. There has lost if not half their body weight. They're working on it. It's there. It's a gulag. It's base turned into it was once the wealthiest country in Latin American that's a long ago really doesn't seem like long ago at all. I I think let me see George W Bush. Resident when it was the wealthiest country. Maybe Bill Clinton maybe have to go back to Bill Clinton when it was the wealthiest country in Latin America, and then in two thousand sixteen the average Venezuelan lost nineteen pounds. But it got better in two thousand seventeen the average Venezuelan lost twenty four pounds. So forget about that slimfast just by ticket Venezuela. Everything will work itself out there. Very nice provide that you don't mind eating flamingos and stuff out of the back of garbage trucks. It's the glory of socialism. And this is what's being proposed by the Democratic Party today at take a long time for us to be eating out of the back of garbage trucks here in America. And also make no mistake. Medeiros friends are not eating out of the back of garbage trucks and in every socialist country. There's the one percent there's the ruling class there's a late in the Soviet Union stolen Soviet Union. Not everybody was starving to death. Just the, you know, the the masses the the the plebeian or PLA bins if you prefer. And the working class the workers. It's the revolution has for them. And apparently they need to lose a lot of weight. It's up. These are some they were running citizens over with armored personnel carriers yesterday at a high rate of speed crushing them, real good. It's not clear whether those were Venezuelan troops. They might be Cuban troops because the commies the Cubans. They sent guys in there. And it's like Stalin used to send the Mongols in when you really wanted to rip up a city and kill everybody and destroy everything. And in Venezuela, send in the Cubans because the they got their training from the Soviets and the the Russians tradition that lives on generations later, and they love massacring their own people. They really like that this one of the things they're very good at seeing the twentieth century. In case you missed any part of it. It's full of lessons like this and stories like this. So venezuela. The yesterday apparently mud d'oro was preparing to leave the country. And there was a plane ready to take him to Cuba because they probably wouldn't be shot to death. There. And and he was ready to go. I'm sure he had as cash piled up. He's probably got Swiss Bank accounts and billions who's we read this years ago. Venezuelan media couple years ago, the wealthiest person in Venezuela is the daughter of Hugo Chavez. Billions I think three billion dollars was the number. And that's because she's just a hard work and woman came up with some clever, ideas credit a business did really, well, she's like the Kardashian of the Venezuela except not really she just stole all the stuff in her father stole all this stuff from everybody while they were starving to death. And it's a typical socialist story. Look at Bernie Sanders got three houses on rents four thousand at least two us to and a makes more than a million dollars a year. In a capitalist society by being a socialist, criticizing capitalism. It's good to be a socialist in America in Venezuela. It's not as good being a socialist. You know, it's it's a little this a little, but he was he was preparing to leave the country, and we have we have Mike Pompeo, actually, Mike Pompeo explaining that. And I think this is probably based on the way it's being couched from intelligence intercepts that as we're listening to flatter MIR puts phone calls, and and also to nNcholas Medeiros phone calls probably easier to listen to his phone calls. But Putin called him and said, what do you mean? You're. Vive there to have troops and any lectured Madero, you can't leave and go to Cuba, even though Cuba's our pal too. But see they want to the national. They wanna plunder Venezuela for everything that it's worth and the oil and the gold in the natural resources, and and they got that slave labor. They're living in squalor and poverty. So they'll work for next to nothing. This is for the Russians and the Chinese who are both in their up to their eyeballs. The Cubans are in there, the Iranians are in there have you seen the list of countries that support Madero? It's almost hilarious. It's like team America world police. It's like all the bad guys. Tim America world police. It's Russia China, North Korea Cambodia, Syria, Cuba, Iran. I was laughing. I was literally laughing out loud. I wrote them down here. I have listed my pocket right here. And I was laughing all the bad guy countries that that are still supporting this guy there fifty. Four at least maybe fifty six maybe more countries that are supporting the the replacement guy. One glide oh guide and and guide. Oh is he's a lefty make no mistake. He's he's basically, you know, he's very socialistic. He's about where Bernie Sanders is probably and Madero is to the left of him wherever you are on the left. You're destroying things where ever you go. But I was marveling. At this lists the rogues gallery of supporters Russia, China, North Korea, Cuba, Syria, South Africa, that was kind of a wild card there. Iran Turkey there NATO member they got that thug. Their Bolivia Cambodia. Bellarusse Guay only Uruguay and Bolivia in South America. Supporting the the creek, that's destroying the new how what is supporting they got Daniel Ortega there, the Democrats love Daniel Ortega, and they killed. It's not clear how many citizens they killed yesterday because who's counting by the way CBS was taken excuse me CNN was taken off the air there yesterday. But nobody noticed because nobody watches them there either. So so it really didn't have much effect on anything, but CNN was pulled the plug on CNN in the whole country, which we saw that in tenement square. It's what the left does. They they murder is still plunder destroy all of that. Good stuff. But secretary state Mike Pompeo was asked about this last night about Madero preparing to flee the country and Putin gave them a call. And did the Boris Beden off thing. And told him he can't go or he tie his wife to some train tracks or something. And and it went like this as understanding that.

"Kanus dot com. Welcome to the program. I wanna I wanna play a couple of pieces from Cossio Cortes here. She is on capitalism. Listen to this capitalism. Isn't to me is it's an ideology of capital. It means that we seek and prioritize prophet and the accumulation of money above all else, and we seek it at any human and environmental cost and to me that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed. Okay. So there she is. It's very very clear yesterday. The guy who joined Bernie Sanders as his chief advisor and speechwriter is a guy who used to write for the Atlantic. And we're going to go into this a little bit later, but he used to write for the Atlantic and one of the articles. He wrote was the new socialist utopia of go shabas. And how great this this. The Hugo Chavez, socialism really was. So those are the people that you have coming at you. They're not looking at, you know, eating around the sides and changing this a little bit. It's a fundamental transformation. And what's frightening is if you listen to what a Cossio Cortez said in a hearing, and we'll get into this later. She said in a Senate hearing, recently, she was asking Wells Fargo. You know, why shouldn't you be held responsible for, you know, an oil spill because, you know, you'll ride alone to Exxon or to these pipeline companies like with we. We didn't design it we we don't run it. We loan the money. But shouldn't we hold you responsible as well? So you think better the second time.

Collapse Of Health System Sends Venezuelans Fleeing To Brazil For Basic Meds

"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from Comcast business having the nation's largest gig speed network was just the start. Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast. Here's one sign of how deep the crisis in Venezuela is it's healthcare system has collapsed. Regional officials say a measles outbreak that began. There was not controlled. It's now spreading throughout South America, and some basic medical supplies and medications, even surgical gloves are no longer available in clinics in Venezuela. And peers Jason Bogan has more by just about every measurement possible. Venezuela's once impressive medical system has fallen apart the Latin American nation with the largest oil reserves in the world is now dealing with an ongoing measles outbreak that last year sick and thousands of people and killed at least seventy four clinics have run out of basic surgical supply. Lies and anti-biotics routine. Vaccination campaigns have been suspended even patients dependent on saving HIV medications have seen supplies of their anti-aids drugs. Disappear. Dr Kathleen page recently visited camps in northern Brazil for some of the three million Venezuelans who fled the country that was not a doctor in the nineteen eighties. When the as make started. But I know what happened and I felt that in these wars I was going back to the nineteen eighties page in infectious disease specialist at Johns Hopkins Medical school says she was shocked to see aids. Patients from Venezuela dying of opportunistic, infections, honig diarrhea infections in their brain things that that we know are treatable and preventable page traveled to the Brazilian Venezuelan border late last year as part of a fact-finding trip for Human Rights Watch I interviewed over one hundred people crossing the border, and I would ask them. Why did you come ubiquitously? The answer was food or healthcare. Many people told her they'd been surviving for months on a diet. Only of Yuka a rugged shrub that has a potato like root in the late nineteen ninety s Hugo Chavez promised free universal healthcare in Venezuela and the country quickly met most of the US healthcare targets by twenty ten but since then the country's much fond in healthcare system has collapsed. Infant mortality the rate at which kids under the age of one or dying is widely viewed as a barometer of a nation's overall health. A recent study in Lancet global health found that the nation's infant mortality rate has risen all the way back to where it was in the nineteen ninety s Jimmy Garcia is one of the authors of that study choking. I mean, we have eighteen years of broiler study is choking and kids are suffering and dying from simple things at the Brazilian border. Dr page met a woman in her ten year old daughter who just come out of Venezuela. The girl was in a wheelchair and needed a catheter. They had been using the same catheter for a year. These theaters is supposed to be. Changed every time you use them. And now she had infection those affecting her kidney. And there was no antibiotics, so they actually pushed her, you know, two hundred miles across the border two hundred miles on foot for a catheter and some antibiotics page who's originally from Uruguay says the health conditions. She saw among the Venezuelans were startling, particularly given Venezuela's reputation as a relatively wealthy Latin American country and these refugees weren't fleeing a war zone, the devastation that you're seeing is not war. It's mismanagement is were economic decisions corruption there's a lot of complicated factors, but it's totally manmade. This is not an actual disaster or something that was inevitable, and that makes the Venezuelan health crisis. She says even more disturbing Jason Bobi, an NPR news.

"Email because he fully understands the consequence of some of the idiotic things that are coming out the Democrats miles right now. Bruce, the socialist folly about increasing tax rates shows their total stupidity. The super wealthy don't make their money through wages. They make it through dividends and capital gains both of which are treated differently than wages in the tax code, and whatever scheme the socialist come up with. Lawyers and accountants for the super wealthy we'll devise strategies to avoid as much of the taxes as possible. This includes moving a lot of the prophets out of America into tax haven countries. The only ones are they get screwed by increasing taxes are the middle class that can't afford to pay for tax avoidance schemes, then a number of the socialists, wanted just take large chunks of the net worth of these superwealthy. What do you think that's gonna work take Jeff Bezos is worth around one hundred billion dollars? Do they think he has that hundred billion sitting Ronald fault somewhere? Most of the wealth is in stock, and I guess Amazon stock makes up the majority. So if they want to take fifty percent of his net worth he'd have to sell stock, but who would pay if all of the super wealthy being stripped of their assets, the result, the stock price would collapse instantly and all of the middle class that as Amazon stock in their retirement plans would also collapse in. Yes. Stripping the multibillionaires of the net worth would indeed hurt. Those super rich would devastate the average Joes in the country was so much more. And if the stock goes down enough and the banks that have load against that stock would go under and the chain reaction would ripple through the entire economy, socialists, only lead to take a look at Baltimore City to see what high tax rates do with the city having a property tax rate, double these surrounding counties. The result is that real estate in Baltimore City only has value of about half. What the same building would have into Ronnie counties socialists, do not transfer value from the rich to the poor. They destroy value. Leaving everyone poor Greg's from paying attention. This is exactly what happened in Venezuela. It's exactly what happened to Venezuela. Up until the election of Hugo Chavez. Donovan is Waylon. They were the fourth strongest economy when it came to wages for people on the globe. They have enough oil to sustain us for like a couple three decades. Just Venezuelan oil alone. But Google Chavez, and then this Madero who followed him decided socialism was the path. So they have cut the wages being paid on average in Venezuela more than half. So somebody's making at that point twelve thousand dollars years now making your own five. That's what socialism does shared misery. But still there are those in the left. Silence. Song of making everybody have equal outcomes which is substantially different than having equal opportunity. Equal outcomes, but nothing to justify it by saying if you have more that's because you have privilege, and we simply have to remove your privilege, and that will even things out. It's a lie is just a way of taking more money from more people. Great Email Jerry's and up next. Next on talk radio six eighty WGN, by the way, I'm going to grab and post them, particularly emails. So you gotta fight it on the Bruce all your show page within the next thirty minutes or So Jerry, good morning. Thanks for hanging on good morning. Bruce get to switch topics here. For a second wanted to talk about the cost of illegal immigration and let you know that Pierce Sharpe Pearson. Sharp on one America, news dot com. Recently gave a very good in fact will report on illegal immigration cost to American taxpayers, and the one hundred billion that you mentioned he says is basically based on an old told the number of illegal immigrants at twelve million. But I under- new studies by the federation of American Immigration Reform, fair center of immigration studies and the institute for defensive analysis, and plus Yale and MIT studies show that a conservative estimate of about twenty five million. Illegals are in the country today and some estimates go as high as forty to fifty million. Drive those numbers up significantly. Yes. And that would make the total cost based on how much it costs for illegal immigrant in the country to be more like two hundred and sixty eight billion dollars a year for taxpayers and also I'd like thinking about this. But they're arguing over five billion to build a barrier to keep illegals out. Exactly, exactly. It's peanuts compared to the cost per year. And this is a recurring cost every year right now, a conservative estimate of two hundred sixty eight billion. And I would like to comment that the twenty five million that twenty five million illegals at the talking about today, really comprises the total population of several states in the United States population of the state of Virginia is about eight and a half million Maryland is a little over six million. So it gives you some idea of just the the large size of the scope of the issue is because we don't know precisely what the numbers are. I mean, we have no idea what the what the actual numbers that. We've been seeing eleven million for twenty years. So something tells me there have been more come in right in the sense that you know, you can't even ask for someone citizenship status on the census nowadays, they're fighting that with if we could ask that question, we might know more and get it a little bit accurate, number, Jerry. Thanks for your call. Appreciate it four one zero WCBS six eight he's right. But of course, they Democrats are. Funding, very hard against a having the ability to ask are you a citizen of this country in the census, they think that that will somehow suppress the numbers. Here's why this matters. Those census numbers help determine everything from. How many congressional representatives each state has? To how much money comes from the federal government to individuals states when it comes to dole out money to all fifty states. So if you have a fair estimate that state a has twenty percent. Illegals in their population. Well, when it comes to doling out money do deduct that twenty percent and apportion the money out as appropriate for only those who are in the country legally because right now that is not the situation, and the Democrats know that in century states and in blue states, you have more illegals because he was much more tolerance for them. California has thirty five members of congress are recall correctly. It's it's a big big state. Fair question. Those people what percentage of the people in California as an example, what percentage are illegals. What if it's five percent? What's ten percent? That would affect how many congressional districts California gets that would affect how much money federal tax money goes to California, for example in federal roads programs or anything else. So that's why the Democrats are fighting so hard to not know how many people living in wet locations are actually in the country illegally and hominy are not just an observation clearances and Baltimore he's next up on talkradio. Six eighty WCHS AM talking about a Nancy Pelosi. Good morning. Clarence Clarence apparently is not they're gonna hang on four one zero WCBS six eighty toll free long distance.

I said when it comes to the state of the union this evening. The president will be calling for cooperation in Washington. You're also going to say the president call on congress and say, look, we can either work together and get great things done or we can fight each other and get nothing done. And frankly, the American people deserve better than that. Better. Weezer better. Will there be cooperation really win over the hearts and minds number Crassus evening? No, he won't. But he can make a good faith effort. I just don't think they're going to be buying it. I think that they feel so far at least. That they have the upper hand in this situation, and they're going to pursue the upper hand as long as they feel it is to their advantage. That is the way politics works. All right. Onto virginia. If we could. Here. This is such a bizarre story as I said yesterday. I'm I'm not particularly concerned in the end about a picture that was taken thirty five years ago. And that's the situation with governor. Ralph north I think it would have been well advised to handle his tweet at his press conference very differently this past Friday and Saturday. But there's a strange phenomenon that is now taking place in this country. That is the whole idea of redemption forgiveness growth. They're done. They're out of here. And now you see the Democrats are turning on their own with this tried it with Cavanaugh. And again, I have no idea north them in the picture or not. I don't know. I don't know the guy. Thirty five year old picture clearly racist from his medical school yearbook. Once upon a time in this country, Americans not only forgave the sins of public figures. They forgive too easily rewarded in essence, those public figures for saying I'm so sorry, and then Bill Clinton would his lower lip and win reelection. But we did understand that people can morally change and that we should embrace that change. If you abandoned religion if you abandon the concept of repentance. Of understanding that repenting on one's sins and trying to grow and find to be a different person. If you abandon that. And all we're left with is a series of bottom dwellers, and deciding that they're going to use whatever information they have in order to skewer their opponents. And this is happening in this culture now over and over and over again. Unsubstantiated charges, and this is not happening with the Lieutenant governor, Donna Virginia. Unsubstantiated charges are brought forth. We are told that we have to accept the unsubstantiated charges as if they are gospel. And since we have to accept that. We can choose who to simply eliminate from the public discourse the public arena whenever we wish. Kellyanne Conway was on yesterday with outnumbered overtime. And she says that governor north them and the way he's handled himself from the last half a week or so as given all politicians abandoning this is exactly what people hate about politicians that there craven they'll say anything do anything that people put in front of enter consultants are focused results say to say, and and they'll cling to power for no reason of event to keep that power declared the power for no reason other than to keep that power. It is it is the most important thing for these folks, they get the fancy parking spot. They get to sit in the good seat in the restaurant. They have fun. No, wait when his show up. It is an aphrodisiac for these folks. That's it. There are those and I'm seeing Republican side as well. We're seeing whether or not the picture is of Northam because the picture exists. He should resign. From the Virginia house of delegates ranking top ranking GOP speaker of the house of the delegates Kirk Cox.

Venezuela’s Opposition Gears Up for Major Protests

"To come. Now. The opposition Venezuela is gearing up for another day of demonstrations today against President Nicolas Maduro, they'd been cold by the country's opposition leader and self-declared. Interim president one Guido in an effort to push the military to turn against leader Nicolas Maduro, Mr. guidos claims have been backed by more than twenty countries, including the United States. They've called on president Maduro to step down and call early elections. Request the president is flatly refused. Our correspondent all Garin is in Caracas the capital, and she told me more about these upcoming demonstrations build by one Guido as the biggest in the history of Venezuela. Well, he certainly made some very bishops predictions about what the turn is will be. We do expect it to be large. There is a real sense here that there is a head of steam building behind the opposition leader one Guido, the timing of the protest on Saturday is important a deadline was issued by major European countries. Four Saturday saying that if President Nicolas Maduro did not call fresh elections by then then this would trigger further recognition of fun does. So we are expecting Britain France Spain and Germany to recognize him on Saturday. If new elections are not called. There are pro government demonstrations planned as well. That sounds a little ominous in terms of the potential for violence. What Saturday is an important adversary Serie for supporters of the socialist government here. It's the twentieth. Anniversary of the coming to power of the late Hugo Chavez, so they were planning to Mark that day. It's possible. That the two groups will clash tomorrow, we had smaller demonstrations earlier this week a client of a lunchtime protests that was called by fond Guido, and we did see some supporters of the president. I was at that time as well on the streets. And certainly he does still have support. There are some very entrenched areas of support for him, for example, among the military leadership and many of whom are believed to have a vested interest in his survival and the protesters, what's your feeling are they all supportive of one guy Widodo are they simply anti president Madero. I think it's a bit of both. I think certainly people here among the activists community have been looking for a standard bearer, they see on quite was representing the possibility of change. I think there is a sense that will many that really what they want is the end of nNcholas Maduro they have had enough after all of the ruinous economic policies that have been introduced in the last few. Two years. We have been speaking to some of those this week who have been out taking part in the protests at one is a twenty five year old activist called Federica Romar. She's also the mother of a six month old baby girl, and I asked her why as a young mother it was so important for her to be part of this drive for a new Venezuela. It's important to me. Because even though with we've been through so much already. You know, it's it's important to me to grow up in Venezuela that I know it's there it's important from tool forgot to grow up in a Venezuela. Where people we used to be the happiest people on earth. You know? How do you feel that? There is a real prospect of change this time because there have been moments in the past there were protests in two thousand seventeen for example. But nothing really changed. How do you see things now? I think this year is definitely different. We definitely have hoped this time because everything is on our site right now, everything is on our side legally constitutionally time is perfect. So I am certainly

"If one of them goes down for maintenance is that acceptable. I mean what happens if somebody has a heart attack while they're in the elevator. Should the government have to ro respond and have somebody standing there ready to handle heart attack patients in every elevator? At every subway. Stop in the entire city. What if someone gets mugged and raped in the elevator at night? Exactly. You see what I'm saying? He takes a tragedy, and he says this tragedy occurred because of the result of not enough money going into these public programs. When in fact, they squander and waste hundreds of millions of dollars every year. And so the bottom line is this. While you can have a country with a large welfare state. And a free market that delivers you know, performed relatively. Well, what we know beyond a shadow of doubt is that the more we turned towards free market, the more we turn towards private industry and free market capitalism. The more wealthy and the more prosperous and the more opportunity every single person has in that country and the more we turn towards Michael Moore's philosophy. The more people suffer the more people starve the more death. And and and I don't know destruction. We see you've seen the famous Michael Moore, Hugo Chavez tweet, right? No. What is it was in? It was March fifth of twenty thirteen. He tweeted Hugo Chavez declared the oil belong to the people. He used the oil money to eliminate seventy five percent of extreme poverty provide healthcare and education for all that workout for Michael. Well, it worked out great initially until L. Venezuela realized that if you give government that kind of power, they will abuse it because they're no different than any other man or woman on this planet, and the second thing is that they don't know how to run an oil company so end up rediverting assets that should have been should have gone towards maintenance and upkeep and new oil exploration in order to pay for government projects and to line their own pockets, and then it alternately implodes on them. This is how socialism works, and I for the life of me because of course, the you've got a government that controls the education system in this country is well kids don't learn this. They're not taught it, and if you're not teaching it to your kids, I think you're doing them a disservice. This isn't about Republican Democrats, not a political issue. This is an issue of what type of activity, what type of structure organ, cultural structure generates the most wealth and opportunity for the most amount of people. And as we've said. For it is mobility that matters not the disparity between rich and poor. So anyway, let me tell you about another great company. So brand new company I talked with a CEO just the other day. It's a it's called Daniels in Weiss dot com. And I wanna talk to you guys a little bit about the bag that you're carrying the office. Now, if you are a young millennial we have many of them who listen to this show chances are you're wearing some dumpy backpack. Like you used in college because that's what it looked good in college. And and you'll very attacked Jason. Well, I frankly, I have to carry this huge backpack because of all the camera equipment and stuff we run. But you know, it you don't work at a corporate environment either. But a lot of these guys are coming out out of school, and they're going to work. They got on nice shirt, maybe a suit, but they're still carrying a backpack. And it's not for you to, you know, get yourself, a nice briefcase Daniels got a great one for you..

"Me for our weekly hillsdale dialogue where we look up from the news of the day. Now, I've been talking about Rogerstown town and people will be talking about it all weekend long. So you can go back and listen the first two hours you go. Read the indictment read my Twitter feed, but there's a huge story bigger than that. And it's unfolding in Venezuela. And I asked Dr Arnn to speak specifically about that today and to come prepared to talk about why is it that socialist countries end up in revolution? And why did they end up poor and misery ridden? And with the military guys. Standing next to the dictator, Dr Arnn. Good morning. Welcome. Good morning. I'm great. What do you think about what's going on in Venezuela? I think it's either wonderful or tragic we'll see in the next few days. Yeah. First of all it matters to the United States. There's a reason you look at the map. Look where way is the way the north conquers the south in the civil war was up to Mississippi because that's the way into the middle of America. If you try to go from the coast mountains in the way that makes it hard so Venezuela's the southern border of the Gulf of Mexico Russia has its longstanding interest in Cuba. And if you look at the sea lanes around Cuba north and south they're narrow so navy operating from Cuba. But now also Venezuela because of the Soviet military equipment there and the Chinese are in alliance with them together with the Soviets. So this thing has strategic dimension. But then as an example, the destruction of the Venezuelan economy is the inevitable result. Socialism and also the Venezuelan political system because if you oppose the regime, Hugo Chavez became president in nineteen ninety eight and this guy who rented now successor. If you oppose them in public, you'll get arrested, and you know, hold major media outlets have been shut down by these guys and the supreme court corrupted and the generals removed the headlines today Washington Post with risks ahead. Trump administration pins hope on the vendors Waylon opposition from the New York Times Venezuela's military backs Madero as Russia warns US not to intervene now, our friend, David Harsanyi, who is the senior editor of the federalist as a great threat this morning, which I want to read you reminder that Bernie Sanders who might well win the nomination. Once said these words in this order, quote, the American dream is more apt to be realized in Venezuela than the United States hat tip. Reagan battalion. He was not alone. I'm not even talking about Sean Penn. Michael Moore or Oliver Stone. Here's the aspiring leader of Great Britain, Jeremy Corbyn. Thanks, go. Shabas for showing that the poor matter and wealth can be shared. He made massive contribution to Venezuela and a wide world progressive hero Naomi Klein praised who go China's the twenty-first century socialism as as zone of relative economic, calm and stability, David Sirotta. Literally wrote a piece headlined who go Chavis as economic miracle Nobel laureate. Joel Joseph Stiglitz question Mark big fan. He argued the Chavis has socialism would quote bring education and health benefits to the poor and strive for economic policies that normally bring higher growth, but also ensure that the fruits of the growth are widely shared. I'm sure and he and many others. Unlike back look at the ninety second street, y lecturing about the importance of wealth distribution here. Here's Mark Weissbrodt. Highs Harrison NY writes, the co director of the often quoted center for economic policy and research praising chevette style socialism. Predicting a Venezuelan apocalypse won't make it happen. He says and as illness and Hugo Chavez life in Venezuela. What will is legacy? Be Richard Gott argues. He brought hope to a continent. Jimmy Carter Chavez brought profound changes to his country to benefit especially those people who had felt neglected and marginalized as it turns out, David writes, the free market, economists were the ones who got it right again. I'm not sure about the initial Bernie apparently it was on his site but written by someone else question, Mark. I don't see that. It's been corrected though. What do you make of that litany of just being flat out one hundred percent wrong? Well, there are two grounds for favoritism for socialism. And one is. Foolishness in the rich countries and the other is oppression in the poor countries. So Venezuelan is certainly true that that you go as came in. Now majority came to power in the in the wake of various strong men who had off and on for three hundred years desperate times that country. And so it's reasonable for it to look like, oh, I'm going to stand for the people. Right. Well, what what what do you do when you do that? First of all there are these economic problems, right? The projects. Socialism are on the levels of economics and politics and philosophy and economics. Just allocating goods people don't quite understand how the free market economy works. But the way it works is what we call a demand economy that is to say people are free to try to meet the demand of other people. And so if you want more oil people will go look for it. And if you want more close people will so up for you and the freedom to do that. And it's radically decentralized, and it actually is has been proved in history in my opinion. But also, some really great books Churchill read Friedrich Hayek, who was either favorite economists mind with Milton Friedman, and I read him late in his career right after the second World War, then he began to articulate beautifully. What Hayek it should which is basically if you're gonna hire a bunch of people to make all of these allegations that go on in an economy automatically, you're going to need an army of those people and. It's still won't be big enough. Yup. And you know, if you you and I've been involved in gross politics in southern California. And one of the great things is everything's gotta wait for the roads in the sewers and all that stuff. And I remember I asked one time you might have been there. A county board of supervisors this is why doesn't everything has to wait until shoe stores. Banks cup. They just don't think, you know, just think what they're trying to plan and they're incompetent the planet, which is just infrastructure stuff. Right. But then the kind of plan everything else, right? Oh, yeah. We're gonna need grocery stores. It's so it's hopeless. Right. And what happens I mean in Venezuela? Two million people have left at least to the United Nations and the United Nations is friendly Venezuela when George Bush spoke, George W Bush, both before the UN wants you go as spoke immediately after him. After George W Bush, and he's a decent human being, right? He stood up. And he said the first words where I smell sulphur up here is if the devil had been there. Yup. And that got and that got a wild ovation. But according to the UN two million people have left, and that's a population of thirty two million people. So they're fleeing literally for their lives, and it's not just depression from the government is that the people can't get anything to eat in Venezuela. They are fleeing. That is why it has been raised as a possibility that the neighbor to the east Columbia into the west Brazil might be inclined to go military and support a Panama style intervention whether led or supported by the United States, I think it is that serious. But I also think they're going to be a lot more Cubans in Venezuela than there were in Granada, Larry Arnn. Yeah. You know, just let these, you know, first of all how corrupt is it to you know, they basically Russia and China are propping up a regime by the time. Russia got involved you go visit already arrested his opponents and suppress the press and rigged elections and outlawed political parties. Right. And they go in there and embrace him. And Lord, they're giving us mornings now. Well, why are they doing that? Well, first of all Venezuela had before it wrecked. It a lot of oil money. And so sold them a lot of weapons I think it was in two thousand ten or something two thousand eight that American military equipment stop being used in. So you know, he did it for profit. But then you know, he gets access to a place that can threaten the United States. And I'm not thinking that that Russia or China are likely to invade United States. But. To bottle up. So he because our strategic position in the world. It's stream favorable is that we're big naval power, and we can get out away from our shores. So that anything impeding, and what am my my retired navy, captain friend. Jerry, writes, me the US. Southern command is the most under-resourced combatant command the Admiral who retired of that job a few months ago routinely spoke about the lack of ships planes aircraft to support the national security missions in the South American region. I think that's because Dr Larry Arnn, three seconds to break. We haven't taken it seriously, but.
