Lula da Silva Slams Far-Right as Brazil Clears Protest Camps
"I'm continuing my discussion of the turmoil in Brazil. It's a little hard to say where this is going. It seems that institutionally Lula da Silva has the support of the courts, and I say that because the courts have been a very dismissive of claims of election fraud, a B have actually apparently been complicit in social media censorship in Brazil. This is the topic I want to talk about in more detail. I'll probably pick it up tomorrow. Twitter, for example, has been a major instrument of censorship for the, this is of course before the Elon Musk take over of the Bolsonaro people in Brazil. So the court is on Lula's side, but the army and the military and apparently some of the police are on Bolsonaro's side. Now the police were out in force, apparently intercepting a lot of the protesters. And of course, they did the protesters did need to be evacuated from any government buildings, but there was also the police cracking down on protesters on the street. And so guess what happened, I'm actually looking at a video of this in social media. And that is that when the police began to deploy and force on the street to dispel the crowds, the army put tanks on the street to prevent the police from removing the protesters. So all of this suggests that there's still a volatile situation in Brazil and Lula da Silva has his hands full in dealing with it. Now, Bolsonaro interestingly is in Florida. And apparently a bunch of left wing Democrats would think I'm thinking here of AOC, Ilhan Omar, Joaquin Castro. They're like, we have to extradite them. We have to send them back to Brazil. Well, first of all, Bolsonaro is not under accusation. He didn't call for these protests. In fact, as far as I can tell, he has been relatively quiet and in a sense accepting of the election outcome. I said that because what is Bolsonaro do? He basically backs up and goes to Florida.

"Representative Joaquin Castro will be answering this party's base to believe that their election was stolen. And that was the point. That was the thing that would get people so angry. Think about that. What it would take to get a large group of thousands of Americans so angry to storm the capital. That was the purpose behind Donald Trump. Saying that the election had been rigged. And that the election had been stolen and to be clear what he says The election is stolen. What he's saying is that the victory and he even says one time the election victory. It's been stolen from them. Think about how significant that is. Two Americans again. You're right over 70 million think 74 Million people voted. For Donald Trump. This wasn't a one off comment. It wasn't one time it was over and over and over and over and over again. With a purpose. We're not having this impeachment trial here because Donald Trump contested the election.

But our commander in chief did was the polar opposite of what we're supposed to do. We let the people decide the elections. Except President Trump.

There is no problem with that. It's perfectly fine if he does the same thing all over again. This is dangerous. He's inciting his base. He was using the claim of a rigged election. We have never seen somebody do that, over and over and over again, tell Ally say, six months ahead of time that it's a rigged election. There is a dangerous consequence to that. You've got millions of followers on Twitter and millions of followers on Facebook, and you've got that huge bully pulpit from the White House and you're the president of the United States. There is a cost to doing that. People are listening to you in a way that quite honestly, they're not listening to me, and they're not listening to all of us in this room. I just want to clear up the defense counsel made a point about something that I read earlier. Defense counsel suggested I misspoke. And I just want to clarify for the record.

Mitch in the Republicans do nothing. Just want to let it pass, no fight. So Donald Trump was equating what Democrats would do if their election was stolen. He said they'd fight to the death.

"Wbtv in Charlotte, North Carolina. Ladies and gentlemen, filling in for Rush Limbaugh. Paul, please welcome Bread Winner bowl and thank you, Johnny Donovan. I appreciate the opportunity to sit in for Rush Limbaugh. It is a momentous occasion for a lot of reasons. Most importantly, I'm sitting in for Rush Limbaugh, but Mostly today because we're continuing to watch closely. This impeachment proceeding take place in Washington, D. C and Joaquin Castro is now the manager who is up presenting the case. So far, we've had presentation of of people talking through tweets and social posts. About how it is that the president was was directing them in some way to go about rioting. I think when you dig down, though, in much of this evidence, what you're seeing is the president was directing them to express themselves express their displeasure to their They're legally elected representatives there at the Capitol. The president did not call upon his supporters to take hockey sticks and baseball bats and Stan shins and shields and helmets and grappling hooks. To go when attacking the siege to the capital. It just wasn't just was not the case. This was a confluence of events with a number of different motivations happening at the same time, and as I said earlier in that first hour It's a mob mentality that takes root, but I'm struck by something here. It's very interesting. Joaquin Castro is making the case is pressing the case that the president diligent, um, ized over the course of weeks and months. The outcome of the election. That that he said, essentially in the weeks and months before the election after the election, And then before the rioting that the election was fraudulent, that it was stolen that it was it was just it wasn't it wasn't right. November the fifth stop the count. Stop the fraud, You know, tweets tweets like that you can say stop the count and stop the fraud without Implying that it's important to go in riot. I don't take stop the fraud and stop the count from I don't take that as meaning. We need to go in riot at the Capitol way. Don't That's not the way we comport ourselves. But Joaquin Castro is an interesting character, because remember when Julian Castro was running for the presidency, and Joaquin was out there and we were called a number of ugly incidents taking place, and I just I just want to. I just want to give you a bit of evidence by implication if I can. All right, so Joaquin Castro In the wake of of the terrible shooting at the Wal Mart in El Paso, Texas. Remember that a couple of years ago, Joaquin Castro Uh, went on his own accord and pulled together the names off donors the names of donors. To the Trump presidential election and campaign who happened to live in San Antonio. Whacking Castro is from sanity represents San Antonio, Texas. That's where is district is and the implication people drew at the time was Wait a minute. What do you What do you doing here? Congressman Castro. Are you saying that Because somebody donated money to trump they should face some sort of a consequence now. In that world. We could easily take the trump arguments that Castro and Raskin and the Goose and Sicily near making against President Trump, and we could say, Well, what is this? Why would you post the names, phone numbers and addresses off people who donated money to tear the Trump for president? Campaign? What are you implying? Why the address? Why the phone numbers? Are you implying people should should confront these people at their homes at their businesses that they should be intimidated and not be permitted to do business in the city of Senate? See no that That's an implication to and that's that's lost to history. I mean, you can. You can Google what I'm talking about it. It is a fact. But Joaquin Castro at the time said Well, this is all publicly available information I'm not responsible for for causing people to go and take some kind of action against Citizens who just wrote checks and gave money to a campaign. But I mean, they need to understand There's a cost right there. Well, okay, Words mean things. Words mean things. And so, to the extent that we couldn't say that Joaquin Castro was saying, go on do stuff to these people who donated money. That's what his contention was. And we can also not say that Donald Trump President Trump at the time ordered people to go to the capital to thrash the capital to attack the members of Congress. But see that That's one of those things. That's tricky because it's logical. It's It's rules for me the rules for the but not for me, and so what we're getting again. Let me let me give another dive into this into this impeachment process that's playing out. We're getting video. It's very serious video. We're getting tweets were getting declarations by the president. We're getting more video of now. People banging on the windows at the counting centers in places like Philadelphia, with the implication being well, these in the same sort of people that would go riot. There's a white pickup truck with American flags and trump flags driving on the street. It's all the kind of stuff that they throw out there and intend for Americans to stitch together in their minds as meaning. Ah ha! These were the foundations of the order's going out there, toe cause a ruckus and to intimidate people. Here's the dirty little secret. For the impeachment managers. And I know you hate this.

U.S.-Iranian tensions surge after Trump-directed airstrike kills top military leader
"When president trump ordered the drone strike that killed an Iranian military leader it cost most members of Congress by surprise presidents normally brief senior lawmakers of both parties but by all accounts that didn't happen to Ron has now promised to retaliate for the execution of general Qassem Soleimani the US says it's sending thousands more troops to the region joining us now is congressman walking Castro Democrat from Texas he serves on the house foreign affairs committee welcome congressman thank you good to be with you yesterday the administration formally notified Congress about this attack are you satisfied no not at all the president should have notified Congress before taking this action sure consulted with congressional leaders before taking such a dramatic step and having a very high ranking official in the Iranian government killed and knowing that this would escalate probably in the war what more would you like to know from the White House well you know there's the old adage in politics that you trust but verify but Donald Trump as president is literally told thousands of large so with this president and this administration we have to verify and then perhaps trust so we need to see as members of Congress what intelligence they were dealing with when they made this decision that's the first thing but second Congress will very likely take action to limit the president's ability to find any kind of war with Iran Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has asked lawmakers to hear the facts before passing judgement why not hold off before criticizing president trump Smith well because it the president's conducted his foreign policy are very chaotic in a radical way sometimes you'll logical way and in this case in a dangerous way so it's not a situation where the president makes any kind of dramatic action what he wants and then tells Congress it's got to be the other way around and what about this claim from the trump administration that there was a credible threat of attacks on US targets that justified the killing of still money have you seen any evidence of that I have not and Congress has not been offered any evidence or increasing about that to date of perhaps that will come up but again that's where the president's track record comes into play because this administration has literally told so many falsehoods so many lies and because the American people feel like they were duped into the Iraq war that becomes very problematic it makes it very hard to trust the district president the president says he has the power to take out terrorists and Congress has done nothing to take back that power you mentioned limiting funding perhaps but until Congress is willing to pass the war powers act to restrain the president what other options are there well the good congressman take going for example one thing your math that is not be done in about eighteen years out and quite honestly Congress has been on the sidelines of making decisions about war and it has put itself on the sidelines by not taking action if your call in twenty thirteen it on August the twenty thirteen September twenty thirteen president Obama said the proposed a year left to the Congress to take up and Congress didn't take it out and I think a lot of that has to do with politicians being very shy about taking positions or the use of military force because it can come back those decisions could come back to hurt people's political careers the way they have around the Iraq war but Congress has to be able to take a position and get off the sidelines we owe that to the American people but the president that the American people to inform Congress and inform Americans about what a story you're a member of the subcommittee on investigations will you be looking to investigate the president's decision to take out general so the money well I mean it's still early to tell whether they would beat mastication for the first of many of the subcommittee perhaps the whole committee will certainly have hearings on that to assess the situation to find out what happened okay but in terms of the investigation I'll have to see how the facts of that's congressman Joaquin Castro Democrat from Texas congressman thanks so much for joining us thank you the Pakistani city of Lahore has some of the world's worst air pollution Amnesty International calls it a violation of the human rights of every resident of the city for years the government downplayed the extent of the problem but now its citizens are pushing back including some so called scary mobs as NPR's DHEA how deep reports a
Latinos are sorely underrepresented in film
"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. Latinos have been underrepresented in Hollywood for a long time both in front of and behind the camera last week a delegation from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus came to La to discuss the issue with Industry Leaders Congressman Joaquin Castro of San Antonio is Chairman of the Group and he says the Hispanic Caucus has a couple of concerns about representation. We worked in in Los Angeles on two issues in particular the gross underrepresentation of Latinos in the entertainment industry and the second getting is portrayal of Latinos in television and film for example. This latest Annenberg report found that of the lead characters on film. Twenty eight percent played criminals which is obviously for any American community or segment of society Misrepresentation and so we had meetings with six or seven studios and executives from those studios. We met with a few of the Gills. The street actors Guild Sag after and the directors guild and and we had a chance to meet with about forty Latino actors actresses producers directors and others about the Hollywood ecosystem Oh system and the challenges that they face hitting work in that system. It's not just the kinds of parts. That Latinos are getting. It's the number of parts Latino. Oh actors barely got four and a half percent of the more than forty seven thousand speaking roles in the top one hundred grossing movies from each though past twelve years and Latinos make up a huge percentage of the US population but also the movie going public. It's almost a quarter of all. Ticket buyers are Latinos. So was there any explanation explanation about that. Disconnect yeah I mean we had pleasant meetings with everyone And you know and everybody talked about. The things are doing to try to do better better. I can't say that there was a satisfactory answer to that. Issue up they did talk about their different pipelines for writing for directing. You know this and that that they're working on. But as I said to those folks in the meetings look if you're at three percents now of Latinos in front of the camera behind the camera then. Whatever you've been doing doing in the past obviously has not worked? So what are you doing right now. And what do you plan to do to improve those numbers And it's very strange that an industry like Hollywood this considered liberal and progressive. Then he would have worse numbers than the fossil fuel industry the oil and gas industry in my home state of Texas Texas. The numbers obviously don't lie the representation of Latinos along with a lot of underrepresented groups in Hollywood is terrible. Why is it important that that it changed? And why is it important to you personally. Well there is a cost to that underrepresentation in C. Suites In terms of casting directors producers etc and part of that cost is a misprint trail of Latinos. I think get no. We not only affects how the how people see themselves but also how. The larger American public sees a Latino community. So when a president or we're politician or anyone else gets up and says that Latinos are criminals and rapists murderers and people turn on their television set and they go to a movie movie and that's exactly what they see then. It affirms that idea for them that the person who's speaking is right and taken to its extreme. It leads to what you've gotTa Know Paso Texas a few months ago which is a madman driving Ted Hours to kill twenty one people. Because he sees Hispanics as invaders to the United States never mind that Latinos have been here for generations. So Hollywood has to take a really deep and close look in the mirror and start to change and change -serily not just by lip service but actually changed. And how do you think that will come about because we've had study after study leave for the last decade that's pointed out these numbers and it doesn't seem like the needle is moving. Do you see any hope for optimism. You you know I. I was Optimistic after it was conversations in terms of Congress's involvement in Congress does have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That provided to the film industry. Just like different state. Legislatures have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That are offered in different places where movies and television television productions are set. But I I'll tell you I did tell some of the folks in these meetings that for us for those of us that were on that trip for the Congressional National Hispanic Caucus and I think for I would dare say for many other members of Congress we have is a mark Zuckerberg level problem here in terms of Hollywood. We have have a problem where an industry is acting incredibly irresponsibly and doesn't seem to be doing very much to change it so the idea that you would bring executives from from Hollywood in front of Congress. The Judiciary Committee is the committee that has jurisdiction basically over Hollywood. That idea I think is something that we should consider consider. Let's assume that these Hollywood executives who aren't really doing what maybe there should be doing. Were to testify in front of Congress. What would you ask them? Congress has brought different industries In front of it to question them on their practices in terms of hiring and diversity and what commit. But they're making do those things and so I ask him questions about the processes they put in place. I mean. Look when you're in a city that is forty percent. Latino in a state is forty percent Latino country that's eighteen percent Movie ticket buyers. That are twenty three percent over indexed on movie ticket sales and this group of people only has about three percent of the rolls when you combine in front of and behind the camera you get to a point where you have to admit that that's systemic exclusion of a group of people and when we have systemic problems not just individual problems or one person here there air when you have problems. Those are the kinds of things that Congress and legislatures should get involved with Joaquin. Castro represents San Antonio in the US House of Representatives. He also chairs the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Congressman. Thank you so much for coming on the show
Trump fundraiser puts billionaire host on defensive
"Welcome back to the bench well once you castigate president from the **** and all of his supporters is not to say that basically allows you to do anything the New York times today is coming out and making the case that basically all trump supporters should be docks even though the fully admit that those trump supporters are being harassed he's number one from The New York Times they say trump opponents want him to name one to name his big donors his supporters say it's harassment by Katie Rogers and Annie Karni they start out for many businesses a sudden deluge of phone calls made signal an influx of new customers but most of the twenty five calls just inherits received before noon on Thursday from people who wanted to tell him he was a white supremacist for donating money to president trump X. the owner of precision pipe rentals in oil and gas services company in San Antonio said quote I've had people say Hey we're gonna use your for business but we found out your racist we hope you burn in hell your business will go with you the reason for the calls was terraces inclusion this week on a list of forty four San Antonio area residents of maxed out their donations to the president's reelection campaign that list we shared on Twitter by representative walking Castro a Texas Democrat who serves as the chairman of the presidential campaign of his twin brother William Republicans have accused the congressman of dioxin private citizens and trying to incite harassment of the president's supporters now I find it hilarious that The New York Times which will simultaneously claim that from incited violence will suggest that Joaquin Castro had no role in inciting harassment of businesses whose names he tweeted out and call them complicit in murder effectively so yeah I I'm not going to stand by your standard of causation dies I think that you've got this little mixed up your time has a similar uproar over from donors is playing out in the monied enclave of the Hamptons we're real estate developers are hosting to fundraisers for Mr trump on Friday progressives looking for a way to express their anger and Mr trump and the people who support him have threatened to boycott SoulCycle the popular spin studios chain an equal knocks high and Jim both owned by the billionaire developer Stephen Ross was scheduled to host the president calling out people who fund campaigns is not a new tactic but the question of how much should be publicly disclosed about those donors has been an issue that Republicans led by the Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have repeatedly raised in recent years in a heated political environment boycotting businesses a big donors has led to a new round of outrage at either end of the political spectrum okay so the New York times openly acknowledging that the people that walking Castro targeted are being harassed so there are times then has an editorial from the editorial board it's called may the SoulCycle boycott make democracy better and then they try to separate off what Joaquin Castro did from what the people what kind soul cycle that which is impossible because it's the same exact thing it is targeting donors to political campaigns on the basis of their politics and then suggesting that they're responsible for great evil and known to patronize their businesses and it is our pitchforks and torches outside their house it is the same exact thing New York times is embarrassed the walking Castro precipitated harassment of specific people but they kind of like a stack again that's a the editorial says this instance like walking Castro's up stage a real concern Americans should want to know more about who funds political campaigns I'm we already have transparency laws in place we already know who funds political campaigns that's not what's going on here what is going on here is that when you call trumpet **** when you call his supporters **** and then you say here all the people who donate money to **** you should not be surprised when the political climate change that you are incurring racks up and continues rack up again I'm focusing in on the left today because the reactionary left is doing this this week trump is raise the temperature in the past and I've read too many one when he has yeah but the the raising the political temperature from left this week has been utterly astonishing in the aftermath of an attack but you to Lisa brought us together for a moment of morning when we're on the same page with regard to white supremacism so the New York times editorial board tries to tries to distinguish the same movement to go after equinox and SoulCycle from what what walking Castro did is that a popular form of protest boycotts more often serve to drop public attention to an issue and to affect concrete change with Mister Ross critics may or may not managed to inflict any financial pain they nonetheless are to public publicly demanding that he answer for and perhaps ultimately rethink his political giving in the process they're sending a signal to other major contributors to carefully consider their choices less they faced a similar accounting public shaming seems to be at the core a Mister Castro street well the outcry from Republican officials as much louder the Texas congressman was accused of inviting harassment and encouraging violence against his own constituents there is rich irony about the Republican self righteous that Baba then they say well it's kind of embarrassing that that Mr Castro did this right they say that he links disclosure from policy and that is that that is a bad thing but then they conclude I basically saying that we should increase the amount of coverage of this sort of stuff they say for now one basic step maybe for media outlets and other advocates for transparency to keep working to ease access to and promote interest in donor data more broadly in other words were embarrassed the people harassed the people that were targeted by walking castles do more of that more of that would be good the only problem is that Castro said the quiet part out loud and the people he target or the little people but if they've been the big people it would've been fine that wasn't I think it's perfectly appropriate to call out major donors for whom they donate to I do not think it is appropriate to boycott businesses in which they invest specifically because they happen to be investors in that business especially if the particularly and only if the business does not reflect the policy preferences of the person at the top so I don't know which businesses George Soros is invested I don't frankly I don't really care because as long as those businesses are not reflecting his
