"Parliament has always loved stories when she was a little girl. She asked her mother to tell her the story of their first year in america and she asked for that story over and over again not because she didn't know how it went but because there was a comfort in hearing the story of their family told and retold i would ask her about the stories of when we slept in the park because we had nowhere to sleep at night and how that came to be and that she told me you know she had gotten kicked out of the apartment we were in and all she had was her jewelry her wedding ring and a necklace earrings in she was going from apartment to apartment building talking to the landlord or whoever she thought was a super of the building offering jewelry in exchange to get an apartment for a month and those were the stories that i have always kept inside of my heart. Terrible thanks for asking is about stories. We believe in the importance of letting people tell their own story in letting them reveal. Not just what happened but why it's important. We know that if we had the budget and the staff we could make this podcast every single day for the next one hundred years and never tell the same story twice because the story is not just what happened. It's what it means. A story changes depending on. Who is doing the telling today. You're going to meet paolo mendoza. Her story could be told this her being a co founder of the women's march as her being filmmaker her being a writer and we will talk about it to of those things. But we're going to start at the very beginning. My story begins in bogota colombia. Which is where. I was born and i immigrated to the united states when i was three and i had an older brother. Who's seven and it came with my mom to los angeles and we were being reunited with my father who had come a few months earlier than us. My entire family for generations had lived in columbia and we had no friends. No family and we didn't emigrate to the normal places that colombians would immigrate to which would typically have been miami and or jackson heights in new york For some reason my mom and my father they chose. Los angeles paolo's mother had been born in the united states. Would her own father was getting his masters degree. So was an american citizen within american passport. Who had lived her whole life in columbia so when we came to the united states we came with my mom having an american passport my father my brother and i with green cards and that obviously gave us a huge privilege that many many immigrants don't necessarily have when they come to this country. I was always very curious about our stories growing up as a child. I always ask my mom from as early as i can. Remember how our first ease here and my mom was very honest with me about our story from the very very beginning when i was five years old. She explained to me that she came to the united states because her marriage to my father was in a really bad place and she thought that starting fresh in a new country would give them a new start as a couple as a family. It didn't work one night just a few months. After they moved palace dad went to work and he never came back he had left his wife and his kids so he abandoned us with my mom who spoke absolutely no english. She was a young mom at that time she was twenty four with two kids know english. No family no education no job and like to three hundred dollars in her pocket. It was maybe for a couple of days. We slept in the car. We slept in a park while my mother figured out how she could find a health. But i will say that what that created for. My mother isn't my mother was so focused on our education. That was the thing that we had to do that. We had to go to school and yes by and large we hear the story often the immigrants. They want their children to go to college and so often they're the children are the first generations to go to college. That was the case with my mom but it also felt that you know my mother had gone to the precipice of losing absolutely everything and she was able to stave off losing everything by amir inch but because she had been at that precipice she she desperately knew that she didn't want her children to get anywhere near that and so she created all these mac nations in and ways and life skills to make sure that we didn't have the uncertainty that we had growing up. I think she probably still feels really guilty about that.

China the people's Republic of China the Communist Party will congratulate itself with military. display a peacock to splash knowing that there are troubles in Hong Kong knowing that their troubles and Xin Jiang and brutality of the weaker peoples Turkic peoples who are greatly in common historically with the people of Azerbaijan and the Caspian Sea knowing that the economy is a broken business model knowing that food security is absent I could continue but the man who helped me learn all these things is with me this evening I welcome Gordon Chang our colleague his in my studio in the ark of the daily beast garden of very good evening to you just because we have an opportunity just state one more time this October first event the seventieth marking of the founding of the people's Republic of China what do you expect the mood to be in Beijing that today of the people of China good evening to you good evening John is ironic but this is the people's Republic of China but during that seventieth anniversary celebration which will be a massive military parade there really will be no people watching it live they'll be of reviewing stand of notables but the people of the people's Republic are kept away from the parade site and that is an indication of how in secured China's leaders have been and will be on October first. we immediately got thanks to the guidance we got from the embassy of Azerbaijan in the United States and scholar dot com we immediately go to our colleague Steven Yates who has institutional memory because Stephen who is the CEO of DC I advisory now in Washington was with the bush Cheney administration yeah early in two thousand and one before the attack on New York and Washington and we spent the last nineteen years turning to the threats from the jihadists however you will recall there was an episode downing of an American surveillance craft navy and a an exchange of sharp words between the bush administration and Mister Cheney I was a spot as an outspoken are representative of American strain and the then Chinese administration Chinese government the Communist Party when she didn't pick was learning his lessons of provocation and non transparency Steve was all there so it's good to have Steve here now anticipating October first and Steve I ask one more turn of the screw here to integrate your thoughts about the president's presentation before the United Nations and how China is doing with the ambition of the trump administration and the trade deal good evening to stave. a good evening John well I thought that the president's remarks before the United Nations were some of his best most organized and effective communication yes for the world about what I think they have tried not to understand but now must start to start to understand of what he means by his America first policies rebalancing of alliances rebalancing of relationships with key competitors around the world of the focus on China was particularly effective the focus on a wrong with effective the language that he used to couch the challenge in Hong Kong about how the Chinese leadership choose to handle and resolve the issues with the people of Hong Kong will shape the way we perceive the kind of country trying to be coming in the role to play in the world it was it was fairly effective in terms of in terms of framing of what his strategy is and as we called it in a bursary though I think the key point is to recall that the eighth decade of the Soviet Union was not kind to that empire I suspect the advent of this a decade of this evil empire will be. Steven it's Chris **** here good to hear her voice tonight my question centers on Hong Kong and the protest we seen there of course their linkages between Hong Kong and Taiwan and how the Communist Party will handle that and of course that also implies the greater region going into the South China Sea and then some of the Pacific island chains of their also around China and we've seen some movement with some of those island nations in the South Pacific to move towards Taiwan maybe you could just talk a little bit about those linkages between Hong Kong and Taiwan in the greater region and China's strategy there. certainly well historically there's been not at close of a relationship as one might have imagined between their government people of Taiwan and the government people of Hong Kong Lincoln had a very different colonial experience in the British and so I I one had a colonial experience of the Japanese and then martial law under the KMT and so there's someone in the distance between the two peoples but I think the people of Taiwan have watched with a great degree of interest and and also admiration as the scene the people of Hong Kong stand up for their own rights at great risk but it into very very significant numbers up and up again the Communist Party of China it has reawakened I think a sense of identity in purpose among the people of Taiwan and is shaping the environment before their January presidential legislative elections China though not to be outdone is busily trying to buy our allies of the of of the Taiwan government trying to take away some of the few remaining formal diplomatic allies in so now we're at a stage now where I think it's even more imperative for the Congress in the US administration and other like minded countries around the world to stand by those that are willing to confront the Communist Party for what it is. a garden first of all I'd like to urge everybody to listen to Steve's testimony tomorrow before a subcommittee of the Senate foreign relations committee he's going to talk about Hong Kong Steve just a quick question the events in Hong Kong have affected Taiwan's election run up to the election in in January of next year it seems like tying when the president of Taiwan was dead politically but she seems to have been revived by all of the problems in Hong Kong if you could just quickly explain that. well it is true that in just sort of the general analysis of the type residency that hit someone of a low point the fall of last year and some local elections one very very poorly for her ruling party in when she was chosen her primary but in a in a very ironic or odd way she didn't paying and his somewhat gratuitous warnings of a get to the people of Taiwan in their new year's eve a new year's address and then some of the activities of course this year given president Ty opportunities to respond appealed to the the self respect and also concerns in the time one people I think that the primary actually made her stronger politicians with an odd way it seems as though she's in pain the Communist Party has a backhanded endorsement of president size reelection just in terms of reshaping the politics certainly the way the Beijing has almost killed the one country two systems model in Hong Kong has greatly affected any parties ability in Taiwan this information he could be with the Communist Party hi Steve which is have moments your instincts are very good your political actor are you anxious about October first in Hong Kong or Beijing for violence. I'm more anxious about Hong Kong I know many good friends and Gordon was just there with some other good friends too week you know I I think that there is the the people of Hong Kong in extraordinary numbers just thinking a third of the entire population have are so concerned about their freedoms and our future they filled the streets nothing like that ever happened and in human history elsewhere as far as I can tell I think that they are likely to demonstrate on that day and I'm I'm a little bit concerned about what the Chinese authorities one this upon putting down those demonstrations on that day we would like to believe they wouldn't want a whole book public relations black guy but at this point he's like a national with them over all else to them.
