The Latest News On The War In Yemen

"War in yemen has been one of the grimmer stories unfolding anywhere on earth for roughly six years now for most of that time it has struggled fool widespread and much more so this year as the rest of the world was preoccupied with the obvious. One of the reasons that yemen has been under reported is that it has been difficult and dangerous to report from monocle. Twenty-fourth beirut correspondent. Leyla moulana alone has recently been to yemen and joins me now a layla. First of all the logistics at this point of getting in and out of yemen. How do you do it. The logistics arch freaky and there are multiple ways now. there awesome flights operating into yemen. And on the way in the way it was done. was through cairo's flying into cairo. And then going into an applet. Who'd you in the south now the flights of neuron a few times a week. They don't necessarily ron time. All hugely overbooked. Of course with people want to go on another extremely expensive as what happened with us. Was that when we lost one can can you then looking out as well because these flights are constantly moving. So it's very unsure when you go in how exactly oh gutting be able to get out and in all case We had to change into a land route option and dry options country which took days because the flights simply went operational on the way out so not necessarily the stable of travel. Itinerary will clearly once in yemen which parts of it. Were you actually able to see so. I was in shabwah. Governorate which is in the south is traditionally very Very tribal governor. At and at the moment it's now the only southern governor this fact compete under the control of the central government it was until the end of two thousand and nineteen ponti occupied by the some transitional council which is the nutritional southern separatists of southern yemen. But they were pushed out at the end of two thousand and nineteen alongside the shabani elite forces which were essentially local mercenaries hired and backed by the united arab emirates. Who of fighting that. They had been fighting against al qaeda terrorists forces that they will push out the two thousand eighteen so it is now backsitting under government control but of course at still a lot of controls over the different parties that some things. That isn't the right decision. So in that part of yemen is life relatively stable and peaceful on the one hand is driving around the capital city act. They're all going up. There are shop opening people walking around. That does seem to be a bishop. Prosperity come back and stuff. People was antony there were jobs hidden now. We can't find jobs in other areas with coming his to work so in on that side of things know that building tourist complex building hotels that very hopeful that the level of stability having now even things like went scoreless Address the that level of civility means that they will have increasing prosperity. The problem of course is firstly that the country as many said to me is still seen as water but also there are a lot of problems with stability they currently have posited is because there is oil. it's one of the three governorates that has a lot of oil in yemen and the governor has made a deal with the central government that they get a twenty percent cut. That goes straight to the governor at so they can invest in rebuilding infrastructure analytical houses in the governor at. That's a great deal. But a lot of people in southfield they should be getting even more not so much of it should be going to the central government that trying to encourage more western oil companies to come back in as also lots of liquid natural gas that the moment there is just one australian oil company functioning on The moment there is just one austrian oil company who is currently can shop. Hope that increase was fired. You enjoy -tunities Very unstable as i say with the political situation still going around. They're all active. Frontlines from the nearest one is in marriage to the north. That's fine with the season is also still frontlines. The southern traditional council as well given everything you've said about life in shaw born those soins reasonably encouraging signs of some sort of return to normality. Does it feel like the government is itself a self contained country at this point. Is there much talk about trying to put yemen back together. So this is the big question with some people are saying shove what is the example of how of federalist yemen could work. You know in which the different governorates level tournament. A certain amount of money to run that own concerns are loyal to a central government and of course contribute troops to a central government. Which is what's currently happening. Lots of shift one young men going and fighting own the nearest frontline that the government has up in a way in tons for its relationship that they have on say. The governor is a loyal to central. Government has a good working relationship barron which she has been given this level of autonomous theoretically that is hopeful future. The problem is that people are fighting for different reasons. This is something people kept saying to me that you know there are some people who had the interest of the money interest of the oil. The pool of calls many people saying that the uae and the arabia of that those reasons. But then you've got some transitional council bay come from a long line of people who believe that the south of the. Nfl is completely different from the nose. Should be united and shouldn't be wrong from the north which causes where at the central government is based although i should say that most of the people who make up the central government actually are outside the country right now because he ended so constantly moving on stable But seth me they're southerners new feel wouldn't at shouldn't be enrolled in the as the south bend. Of course you have. The who fees. Who are the shiite iran backed militia. Who are still fighting in. How occupied a lot of the north of the moment. They are running at sanaa city at the moment still and they of course flight final ideology and copy one of my money as many people said to me that it's not just about these business relationships on the national resources so while the idea the united yemen too. Many people is hugely appealing. And so many people that saying can you with retired war. We want peace. We want elections. We just want to get on with our lives and have yemen stop being associated with the idea of this ongoing horrific war which the united nations is called the greatest humanitarian crisis currently in the world but whether or not that's realistic the number of political issues currently butting up against each other both in tunnel and the proxy wars being fooled by international powers is is another question is obviously not short of problems but it was also burden this year as every country on earth walls by the covid nineteen pandemic. Were you able to get much sense of how that has affected life in yemen or how yemen with the resources it has has been able to handle it so the area i was in has extreme yellow covid figures at least in tons of what's being counted now going in i thought perhaps they simply aren't being counted all covered up in some way. One of the arguments is of course. It doesn't really make sense for the government to be covering up coach. Vic is because it's one way of them getting access to aid. Amy because so much aid money to other projects has been coastal this year because it will bring directed towards codex but in the area. I was in shock whistle. The numbers are extremely loads. They do have a new testing center in the capital of. Its just couple of months old. That's incompletely funded and built by the saudis very center. It isn't getting much use because they don't seem to be that many people coming in now elsewhere in yemen. The problem has been much worse. Part of the reason might be that there is not that much movement in the south. Where's the north in ogden. In saana a further away from that is a lot of moving there and we. Stephanie seen horrific numbers of people really struggling particularly ibp comps. Where who's it spreads wildfire. Now i did meet with several people who said that in the prisons. The situation is getting much worse as well. I spoke a couple of prisoners families who said that they the dominant co code in prison and the conditions were horrendous. They were not being freed Unlike many prisons seeing around the world who've been given a thorough from prison while the coronavirus has been spreading shouts great concern. The big problem really is as i say. That was not much of it to be seen at the moment. But the very worried about Of course we know that in the summer does seeing that the transmission. I'll in the winter. Once that construe immune systems are the health service simply The local hospital is absolutely overwhelmed. Ready mary i was having a den. Gay deng massive outbreak which is affecting a lot of young children in particular from the rural areas. You have to travel hundreds of kilometers to get to the hospital. So although right now where i was as i say not that big a problem if it does hit in the winter and docs saying they're concerned about that. It would be really really devastating.

"leyla" Discussed on KFI AM 640

"Force today in Italy. Right now it's 67 in Cyprus, 67 in Laguna Woods at 64 in Glendale, 65. In Malibu. We leave local live from the kick off I 24 hour news room. I'm Leyla Mohammed. Good morning. It is a Friday morning, October 23rd bill handle here. And the morning crew. Last night. The final presidential debate. The big takeaway is nothing changed. No home runs. The president didn't self destruct. Joe Biden didn't self destruct. And it was easier for Joe Biden to win this because how did you win it? He wanted by breaking even The only way the president could reset. His campaign based on last night and change some of the middle was to hit a home run being his acting appropriately. I'm not going over the top, not foaming at the mouth, which he did the first debate, interrupting just doing what the president does best because that is his philosophy. You fight you attack and it certainly worked in the business world. And that certainly is how his presidency has run sometimes to his benefit, sometimes not to his benefit, sometimes to the benefit of America and sometimes not. It's been a very volatile presidency. So his adviser said, You cannot do this this time around, because it was you destroyed yourself last time. He came out, said I won. It was terrific. Well, he paid attention this time around, so he wasn't particularly rude. I'm he was more over the top than Joe Biden. Although Joe Biden got a little exercise to Ah, it's Ah, It was an interesting debate last night to say the least. But did it move the needle? It did not. Biden did not self destruct me Sutters. I'm that ship simply a guy who loses his ability to Ah, Ah, talk sometimes and just he's minding their is going faster than his mouth or by the way, I know that particularly well and he did some of that. And there was so some groping for words. But for the most part Hey, came out of it better than even His performance was better than the bar that was brought to the table, as was President Trump's The argument is, and I think it's legitimate or the takeaway is that nothing changed. It was an exercise in just seeing who we've seen What we saw a president who is a lot calmer than we saw before. And we saw a presidential candidate who was more forceful than we've seen before. And so that is one big takeaway and The other one on. I think this was clearly delineated during this debate, because we finally got to some issues the first time around. There were no issues. It was a barnyard brawl is what itwas nothing more nothing less, and none of the issues came out. It was Trump just screaming at Biden, overriding him interrupting. And there were some moments were Biden struck back, but it was effectively useless Last night, the clearest picture Of all of it came to us as the American people, and it was a stark reminder. Where we're going to go and the choices we have to make, and it could not be more different. It is truly black and white. And I'm going to come back to talk about that. And then some of the statements that were made some of the utter lies I mean outright lies some exaggerations, which Biden as well as the president did. Or uttered and just demeanor to want to talk about that, in just a little bit of fact checking, which is and no one bothers with fax. If you say it enough, then there's the belief Will return. If I am 6 40 live everywhere on.

Chinese Leaders Split Over Releasing Blacklist of U.S. Companies

"Were exclusively reporting on a new development in the ongoing battle between Washington and Beijing over technology. China. Has Been Working on a blacklist that could punish American tech companies, but there's disagreement at the highest levels of China's leadership over whether they should issue a blacklist before or after the US election, our correspondent Leyla way has been reporting on this issue and joins us now Ling looking forward to this conversation. So welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you mark. So the one thing that has struck me is the fact that China has been very up front about this notion of a blacklist. How did it come about and what's the goal behind it sir? You're right China announced as intention to create. Unreliable entity list backing made last year but they have really kept to the whole process secretive. So what happened backing May to sell? Tin Soon, after Washington released entity list, basically restricting Weiwei, big Chinese, telecom giant, restricted hallways excess to US components and technology. So basically China's move was to match the trump administration's stepped up sanctions and crack down on Chinese companies. Especially, some of the best known technology companies so is part of the whole tit for tat strategy. The Chinese government has been using everything's the trade war broke out and explain what China may be thinking about as it considers the consequences of a blacklist. So this. Is This entity realize basically is part of China's ways to hit back at the US but they have to be very careful in terms of hall heart they push back right because the leadership really is also a dilemma on one hand they want to satisfy the urge to do something to hit back at the. US. On the other hand there's still wary of completely destroying the relationship which would hurt the Chinese leadership to at home politically and would also heard China's economy as well. So where do things stand currently because in your reporting, you said that leaders are hesitant to pull the trigger to this day. We still do not know which American firm the for for infirm is on the list because the Chinese leadership has intentionally kept it a secret of process you know on one hand you know just by announcing this list, they managed to keep foreign companies especially American firms on the actions on the other hand. Dad Really reflects the internal debate that currently is going on within the Chinese government. You have one faction officials who think, Oh, we should release the names as soon as we can. To really protect our rights and our stove and t just stand up to the American hack mom, and then you have another group of Fitch shows senior officials who are arguing we should try not to provoke trump any stretching the further you know we should be really cautious because you know the stakes very high. If you know there's a very high risks dead, the trump administration would step up sanctions again, potentially targeting even more Chinese firms that would really hurt China's economy main industries significantly. Politically speaking, these are tough times between the US and China with this list. Is there a risk of making things perhaps even worse? Definitely there's a risk that the mere disclosure of the existence of this list would provoke the trump who stretching further because as you know the sentiment toward China Washington this days it's it's quite active as evidenced by the cascade of actions targeting Chinese companies or Chinese officials but China right now doesn't appear in any way that they would compromise in any way instead they basically hit back at. Every punch that has been thrown by the US government so even The idea that they are creating a list be seeing as. Provocation in the eyes of some US officials. So definitely, there is a big risk that this move this moved to simply disclose that the distance of the list is going to provoke Washington even more and lead to further escalation of tensions. I think this discussion is going to continue for quite some time the journals

Lebanon tribunal names 4 suspects in Hariri killing

"Is more than. Fifteen years since Lebanon's Prime Minister Rafic, Hariri was killed in a massive car bomb along with twenty one others. Later today an international caught near The Hague will hand down verdicts in the trial of four people accused of planning and carrying out the attack the four accused of of the Iran backed militia and political party. Hasballah. Hezbollah itself is not formally accused. Well, let's hear from the journalist and multiple twenty four regular contributor in Beirut Leyla Milana Allen Lali you're standing outside the very hotel in front of which Rafic Hariri was killed. What sense is in Beirut today that the justice will be done. There is very little sense. the families, all of the twenty one people other than because eighty who were killed as well as the nearly three hundred injured have waited as you say, over fifteen years justice taking a very long time this commission to come through with this, and the problems are a few of course many people here feel that the responsibility lies with the Syrian regime and through has through then has one. and. The five men on trial here all labeled as Hezbollah supporters because they found it very difficult to actually find evidence to show that they his bumbling members because, of course. Is So secretive I'm one of the biggest problems is that must have budgeted dean who was the main sort of ringleader debt these indictments who was accused of having set. The whole thing was known very well as the military imam to Hezbollah was killed in two thousand sixteen an attack on Damascus APP while his was helping Bashar Assad's regime with the wool there. So he was the one person who is very easy to link to Hezbollah and the only evidence they have all circumstantial evidence from these mobile phone networks. So as we expected, the indictment will come through the verdict will. Saying that before remaining men all guilty lane attempts about those who are accused of the murder of the prime minister. said a five men who stand accused have all been labeled Hezbollah supporters and that's because it's incredibly difficult to prove that they were in fact, Hezbollah members everyone in Lebanon believes that that. The majority of people believe that Kennedy was assassinated at because he was starting to pull away from supporting the Syrian regime who'd had troops stationed in Lebanon nearly thirty years all the way through the civil war and afterwards, and of course, we now know that Hezbollah very heavily H. Two zero. But this was all just sort of starting not link between Syria and Iran and Hezbollah but the main man was accused of being the ringleader. Organized the whole nation is most of that that the WHO was very well known as the head of the military wing of Hezbollah but he was killed in two, thousand sixteen and attacks Damascus Apple, which means he's no longer in the indictments and he was the only person. It was very easy to direct the link because there was evidence that he walls a top commander in. Bola. So I, the that means that it's very unlikely has itself will be named in the verdict today it will simply be. These men and then these men haven't been found the Lebanese government has been able to find. Her Bella is a big portion Lebanese government and the chief of Hezbollah nationalize long maintained that he absolutely does not see any of independence in this inquiry he says that it's funded by Israel and he says that there is no way that they will ever hand over these suspects old they will ever be found and historic has very good at hiding its top guys who've been involved in operations in. Lebanon in Syria and even Iran many think that these four worship over to Iran. So even if that comes through in the verdict is guilty as we expect, there's not really going to be any justice indeed has on Rolla said that Hezbollah isn't worried or isn't remotely concerned with today's verdicts but what will the repercussions be? The repercussions are unlikely to be much at this point, and that's for a few reasons I, Ne- as I said standing outside the. Hotel, which at the time in two, thousand and five win this thousand kilograms of TNT when pages devastating crater in the middle of the road and destroying all the buildings around loons lodge in the public consciousness here you there had been assassinations in the years off the list of this by the largest active. So many people because whoever was responsible really wasn't taking any chances and it was enormous copy. And other than the two thousand, six war with Israel, which was very different because it's a war in terms of an explosion going off in a very recognizable. Popular Ponte. out of nowhere that was the one that was remembered. Of course, until two weeks ago, two, thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. In the port, just a few hundred meters down the road from this hotel. Injuring seven thousand people or more chilling up to two hundred, and still don't have a full body copy. What is still missing Susan now is far more would have. Done that assassination the other thing is that at the time, it was very shocking that people. Had Eighty was really associated with post for Lebanon. He was the symbol of course will Lebanon deeply loved by international leaders around the world as well as many Lebanese and so the idea that the Syrian regime would dad's kill him has would dare to kill him with. So shocking even though of course, assassinations were quite common but he was he was such. An important figure now firstly, since then of course, we've seen brushing Alaska wage a almost decade long bloody war against his own citizens in Syria we've seen very clearly now those strong legs between Hezbollah Syria and Iran Hezbollah work soldiers full bachelor says regime in the civil war in Syria. So nobody would be remote. You surprised now that that they all responsible. And the other issue of course is the fact that. Sad had eighty I think Kennedy some kind of stepped in his stead very much because he was the son and that's why he was given so much faith especially young age and has become such an important figure in politics here. But in the last year, we've seen a rudy seismic shift in Lebanese. Politics. People say that happens every fifteen years the lost round with two, thousand, five, thousand, and six before the civil war ended in one, thousand, nine, hundred before about. It started in nineteen, seventy five, and now of two, thousand, one, thousand, nine, hundred, twenty weeks but newest protest movement Saudi the is very much seen as one of those political elites people out. So the younger generation at least don't have that same attachment to the family and time to seeing them as such an important force a good and for future movements, which is what that party is called Ford Movement in Lebanon So really this bird apartment, of course for the families. Of those killed and injured is not really going to have that much of an impact with so much else going on right now.

Lebanon's entire government resigns amid anger over Beirut explosion

"A week after a massive explosion to. All parts of the Lebanese city of Beirut. Apart, the entire government has resigned the massive blast was caused whenever two thousand tons of ammonium nitrate which had been stored unsafely at the port for six years exploded killing over two hundred people injuring more than six thousand and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless over the weekend residents of Beirut demonstrated against the government calling for the removal of the entire political class due to their negligence and corruption. Joining us once again from Beirut is Layla Milana Allen Leyla when we spoke to you yesterday, five politicians had resigned so far. Tell us about the announcement made last night by the prime minister. So what we saw yesterday and the evening before session, all government ministers resigning. We also saw several NPR's goes well, Megyn went from protesters. Here we go one by one this many left to go. and. Then there was the resignation of the finance minister as he wasn't he just before that meeting that was supposed to in the afternoon that cabinet meeting in which prime minister the APP had said that he was going to a table a motion. To try and have the elections is at the State Petunia. So. How's it wasn't said that he would suspend his his resignation until off the meeting they went in and they spent two thousand not room. Getting. Rumors from quite early on in fact, the entire government was going to resign because there were two ways that this could happen. Either has MD could resign himself or if more than a third of his ministers resigned, that would make his cabinet untenable already looking at five. So essentially, just two more and they were already two minutes to said before they went through, they would resign if the government didn't as Walter a couple of hours they came out and those announcement saying that he would speak in the evening. And when he did speak, he came forward and he said. That they had tried their best to be transparent tried to Rama transparent government. She's January failed to impose some of the reforms that Lebanon. So desperately needed but endemic corruption in the government had made it impossible to do so had caused this tragedy. Now, of course, many people don't feel that's the case they feel that the government was not run transparently at all. Or none of the reforms that has promised January. Would be done in six months word done within six months, and of course we now know. That both the president and the prime. minister. WED Two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of money not great was in the Port as worse excessive government none of them do anything about it. So the government's gone but is going to be a change in the system will the same sectarian politics driving the unrest still exist? Not at the moment now, sectarian politics is really driving some rest. There are a few elements here. Firstly, the the problem with the government system is not that it's impossible to run because the country says sectarian, it's the it's impossible to have a government which allows the country to not be sectarian young people on the streets is saying that's not what they want. They want to country that will come together and work together where people are elected based on their merit not based on what sector they come from but because the political system is original on these lines where each sect gets a certain number of seats innocent area firstly, it's impossible to have that kind of government that is responsible for the entire country doesn't have. Interest in certain places, and secondly, it means only a certain kind of person can be elected because there is such entrenched nepotism in politics and you need the money and connections to be able to run and succeed. So right now, what's going to happen is that as we saw late last year when Prime Minister I've had resigned, the current government will stay on in a Catholic capacity. There's not much they can do in that capacity they will meet rally and they will only be able to put in bills or emergency bills to keep the country going, of course, Lebanon ready needed proper legislation to come in and change things before this explosion now, really function of government. To get things moving the country who built and help people that's not going to happen under a caretaker government but the system is so complex in terms of trying to elect a new prime minister different block in Palm. As I say, these different sectarian blocks have to agree on the candidates and then he has to find a cabinet that pleases all of this -Tarian blocks each of whom will want their own cows come in that. Again, what we're going to see in the coming weeks is this political game. All aimed at making the right formation balance of people in power rob. Then a government trudy is just focused on what is best for the Lebanese people purchase street saying this is the same old system. Nothing's going to change a new election won't help us. Cabinet won't help us. We need a complete overhaul of its system which has dragging us down and letting the country move forward.

beirut explosion latest news

"Some exercises in perspective the IRA bomb which severely damaged Canary Wharf in London in Nineteen ninety-six was estimated at just over one ton of ammonium nitrate Timothy McVeigh's bomb which demolished a federal government building in Oklahoma City in nineteen ninety-five was just over two tons of the same material. The boss which erupted in Beirut's port on Tuesday was estimated at two. Thousand seven hundred and fifty tons of ammonium nitrate. One of the biggest peacetime non nuclear explosions in history as Bhai. Route begins the barely imaginable task of cleaning up and is understandably enough growing tear gas was fired yesterday at protesters near the parliament building I'm joined. Now by Lila Milana, Allen France twenty four's correspondent in Beirut Leyla. First of all, you have been visiting the port which was the epicenter of the explosion. I can't begin to imagine where you would even describe such scene but I'm going to ask you to have a crack at doing that the scene is as you say, almost indescribable does smoke still rising from the charred MBA's off. Destroyed packing crates destroyed shelving and it says every kind of. Utility things you'd expect to see in shops. Twisted. Washing machines on the floor items from pharmacies because this of course port, this is the one thirty functional in Lebanon imposed everything and everything was stored than in the center. You have the remains of these enormous grain silos that carried the grain for the majority of the country completely destroyed and parts of them. Still collapsing there you have a aid workers desperately trying to dig people of rubble that's thirty meters deep, and the conditions are horrific temperatures of thirty degrees baking hot sun. The air is thick and brown the smell acrid burning metal and plastic. It really is post-apocalyptic and this goes on for over a mile. Entire poor is just smoking twisted metal and daybreak. Nash. have. You got a clear sense of how widespread the damage across Beirutis. How far can you go from the blast without seeing broken windows? So it. was about nine kilometers where we're still doing things like breaking windows the impact of it and having people. That's it really has spread incredibly far, and it's an uneven spread as well because. What's happened is that the grain ciders positioned in a certain way which meant that it protected half of the city of West Beirut, which historically has in many disasters. Conflicts actually born the brunt of of problems in Beirut and actually deflected the majority of the blast towards the East and the south, which is why a famous areas like Gymnasium Ohio Asha fear completely The buildings there obliterated and one of the concerns now is a lot of. Buildings the older buildings in Beirut the few buildings left in the east of in pre-civil war, which were much loved already, quite delicate on the point of collapse yesterday as people were trying to clear the streets constantly civil defense volunteers trying to pull people back away from these buildings with balconies hanging down stone starting to crumble because of course, that's a huge dangerous. People are still sifting through rubble trying to find loved ones that buildings could. New Buildings that had not yet collapsed could collapse on top of the other issue is that the new builds a lot of them are concrete and speaking to an engineer what can happen with concrete is that with a shockwave blast like this concrete cracks easily under pressure and so that can be in tunnel cracks there that you don't know about in can't be seen from the outside, but the make the building unstable and because there's really been. Very, little help from the government with people trying to go back into their homes, clear up and see what they can retrieve and whether their homes are still livable. Many people going back into very unstable buildings and some living there because they have no other former shelter. So a real risk of further injury as buildings might potentially collapse over the next few days very similar to the aftermath of an earthquake, which is what this is compared to. A among the people who was serving the damage in Beirut yesterday was of course, President Emmanuel Macron of France undertaking a extraordinary spontaneous visit. How is that being received? I mean, it's it's understandable enough that Lebanese politicians don't want to interact at a personal level with the public at the not only for their own safety but is it being regarded as strange that the first high profile politician to to take a walkabout should be the president of an entirely different country? Well, it is strange, but it's not being regarded as strange. I was down on the street yesterday when McCone was was walking through glad-handing the crowd I mean, he really was you know playing up to it and was supposed to be going to Baabda Palace, the Presidential Palace to meet with politicians and delayed that for an extra hour on the schedule to stay with Lebanese people in the streets of course, playing up very much. The fact that he was there to see them he'd said before the visit my main priorities to go and be with the people of Lebanon. And extend, solidarity's to them, and then after that I will be dealing with the political varieties speaking to them. So in the streets, he was absolutely mobbed by people he's hugging people shaking hands with them people coming up tim saying, please don't give those politicians any money that corrupt criminals we don't trust them and he responded to one woman I know you don't trust them graffiti everywhere saying don't give one. Euro. To those Michael help us. So he really did make himself as I say a man of the people yesterday I spoke to a couple of young women afterwards. WHO said to me? That man was more of a leader to us in fifteen minutes than any of our politicians have been where all day no one has come to see us where are they wears the help and later in the day after a lot of commentary that. The. Obviously. Lebanese politicians feeding quite shamefaced one. The justice minister did come down to the streets to try and speak to people clearing up and she had water thrown in her face and chanting protest. Immediately, they're not welcome and that people absolutely fading that the government has no interest in safety in their health in their wellbeing and their ability to rebuild hiding away from them as everybody marshals together to try and get things. Back to nothing like normal but something livable at least just to follow that up finally, regular listeners may recall that you and I were speaking on Monday talking about the resignation of Lebanon's foreign minister and that seemed like a pretty big story at the time He's probably ruin his timing at this point but have you seen or heard anything in terms of actual messaging attempts to help or anything from the alleged government of Lebanon or d you kind of assume that they've all got to the point where they just realized the games up nobody really wants to hear from them anymore. It's quite extraordinary. There is honesty nothing happening in terms of that what the government is doing a lot of finger pointing at each other and previous administrations about who's to blame for this they've put everybody associated with the report under house arrest and saying that they're going to find the perpetrators. But of course, everybody's saying somebody else's the perpetrator on what we know so far it seems that for six years has been ongoing negligence at the highest. Level where a several reports were were built up by the head of the port and have customs sent to the government center the Prime Minister's Office the judiciary about the fact that this was a ticking time bomb and something has to be done completely ignored. So the government is going on about this investigation saying they'll find responsible meanwhile three hundred, thousand people in Beirut homeless, five, thousand injured hundreds still missing, and honestly all you can see on the streets is volunteers. The. Lebanese. breath volunteers, obviously with their ambulances civil defence wanting tears, young people armed with spades and rooms marching down the street just going into people's homes into buildings and sweeping up what they can and moving onto the next one cleaning up themselves. They all said to me of course not here we wouldn't expect anything else from them with the only people who can help ourselves and today international aid. Groups coming in different countries, sending their own firefighters medical support in, and still a complete absence of the Lebanese government anywhere except the poor area learn Milana Allen in Beirut thank you very much for joining us.

My lockdown project was dance lessons. Because I wanted to make meaning of the time and I also wanted to make a faster and I thought you know what dirty dancing montage makes the time go really fast. Just go well. They've done a bit of this and a bit of this and a bit of this and then three months passed. So I thought I would learn to dance for surveys INS, and so I hired a dance Tacoma. Pravo who's very close to me, we'd zoom together for four months now Danzig every single day. And today for the first time we went into a studio, as was legally allowed, stood far from each other, and we just staring at each other, because we've seen more of each other in lockdown, any other human being, but not in the flesh, and already like met her once before this all happened, so we were just staring at each other for ages going. It's really you. It's really it's like. And it was we were seeing a video game avatar come to live, and then she looked and she went. On my God. This room is so big. And I'm used to seeing you on the little screen. She said this room is so big unique, really small in here and I thought Oh my God. This room is making me look thin amazing. Attorney. was.

How Zamboni Driver Helped Carolina Hurricanes Win Big Game

"We can't begin the show without talking about the biggest story to hit hockey since what out. Foster Scott Foster. Probably the Glorious Song I don't know so. What was the last hockey story to get on the today? Show Leyla Anderson. Probably and you know what's interesting about it to me. I mentioned Scott Foster. Is that happened two years ago and one of the more interesting things the way he handled in the blackhawks handle is he got all these requests. He was asked to go on Jimmy Kimmel and the Today Show People magazine. And he turned it all down because he wanted to be about the franchise throat. Meanwhile Dave Ayers technically property of the Carolina Hurricanes Right now. We know they don't say Tom. I'm going to rename top golf. Airs Ball David Errors. Of course is the forty two year old goalie from Whitby Ontario pro previously experienced in the Allan Cup Hockey League where he played for the Norwood Vipers. For Eight Games He was the is the Zamboni Goal Zamboni driver for the Toronto Police H. L. Affiliate the Toronto Marlies He became just the third emergency goaltender in the modern era to play in the NHL when he went out and played for the Carolina Hurricanes against the Toronto Maple leafs on Saturday evening the marlies Zamboni driver playing for the enemy and You know he beat the leafs as everybody knows but are you surprised that the like the hurricanes if there was any team in the league where I was like. This is a team that could play that. Well in front of Amateur goaltender like maybe Dallas would be the number one. Maybe the islanders would be just by the systems they play but Carolina basically saying you. Don't get the PUCK ANYMORE TO THE TORONTO. Maple leafs was something. That was entirely predictable in this. In this scenario my opinion I don't think the hurricanes got enough credit for this guy getting the win one hundred even like after the Game Rod. Rod brindamour comes into the locker room. Talk about how the team played in front of that guy for that guy. Four David eyres eight. Which is an incredible thing. And you know what I was just talking about. Who Remembering when his team had a goalie. That didn't show up. She showed up late so they they had to play six on five. Like we couldn't score a goal on the empty night. Even I mean it's amazing. How the mind works how. The effort level works in that Carolina Hurricanes team. You can't say enough about. I Mean David. Eyres only had eight eight eight saves on ten shots. I mean you know you put a lot of guys in the net with a a modicum of of skill In the position and have that performance in front of them. They're going to have some success so all the credit to him for stepping in there and getting in front of pox but man that I mean Jake Gardner was just laying out out there. I mean it was unbelievable to watch imagine if Michael Hutchinson head that Michael Hutchinson now property of the Colorado Avalanche. Because of course we're going to talk about the trade deadline. But you know I think the reason why this story resonates with so many people is that in the little child and all of us. It's the dream of a fairytale at forty two years old. He's the second oldest player ever to make his. Nhl Debut. And I guess just to put a tie on this as we get into the trade deadline talk. Think BACK TO MEETING SCOTT. Foster one year after his big day where he was the accountant. Ben Saved what was it? Fourteen minutes of scoreless hockey for the Chicago Blackhawks against the then mighty would peg jets and you know he didn't do any interviews for a year and he said at one point. I called it the incident and I had to tell myself just because you take advantage of an opportunity doesn't mean you can enjoy it so I'm just glad that day there is enjoying and enduring with all of us because we all seem to be enjoying it

"Error. You know it's funny like I've looked at that picture of you with with the green dress on and there's like it's like a frame in the background that's shaped like a son and I remember like looking at that picture probably like a dozen times before I realized that. Like you're standing in like a shitty construction site and that was just like a fucked up frame like when I looked at I was like Oh look at how beautiful this images and then if you look closer there's like all these imperfections e. Is that safe hard exactly? Yes exactly yeah I mean. There's a lot of fucked up Steph in our environment that gals also beautiful. You know. It's like weird but it's true your latest project. I had notes on this but I lost them somewhere Your latest project is a theatrical piece. Can you talk about it? Yeah it's called breaking the thermometer to hide the fever and it's a multimedia performance that my collaborators I have been talking about it almost like alive documentary It's being commissioned by Duke performances and inspired by an archive called the Radio Haiti Archive House at their library and so I've been doing research along with this archivist. This amazing woman Laura Wagner. Who's been kind of guiding me through these various recordings and this history and kind of processing what it all means and how to make art out of it so it has become this sort of semi biographical work that is based on the archive of radio. Haiti which was a radio station. That was opened from while owned by this managed on Dominique from nineteen. Seventy two. Two thousand three he was assassinated in the year two thousand but he was like a very big voice for the promotion of democracy throughout the developing Jardim. Him and his wife were exiled At least twice in the eighties and nineties Their radio station was nearly nearly destroyed by the Tonton macoute which was the duvaliers paramilitary troops in Haiti. So there's just like really a ton a ton of layers to this story and it has deepened my understanding of twentieth century patient history. You know I was really inspired by reading about the revolution but that was like in the seventeen. Hundreds early eighteen hundreds fast forward hundred fifty years. One hundred seventy years and radio. Haiti is the first privately owned creole-speaking radio station trying to promote creole as an official language. in a time where the media landscape was very homogeneous you know even in a place like Haiti where you would think. There are so many different stories to tell but people stories aren't being told because they were under this repressive dictatorship that silence. A lot of people in a lot of people disappeared in a lot of people were killed and a lot of people were executed in a lot of people were exiled and so it kind of ties into like the Haitian American immigrant experience in that way and it has been so intense delving into this history. And I did a couple of you know one of the things that's been really interesting about the piece is like how do we create so the piece itself is dance music projection video projection and sound design? And it's like. How do we tell this story in a way that people are going to be able to understand it and so that's where my my personal stories kind of helped too high I think all of it together and it makes it something that I am. I'm telling this story but it's also part of my story because I'm Haitian in what does that mean It's been really cool. I could talk to you forever. Yeah we're premiering it at Duke University grand at the beginning of March. Okay if you WANNA come Yeah I definitely.

"Our native is your project with Rian. Amethyst an Allison Russell. You have said of that project. This is a very validating experience for all of us. Because we weren't centering. Any kind of sanitized narrative about what this country is in how we've gotten to where we are US. Kind of sounds very similar. What we're just talking about. Can you expand on that thought? Yeah I think that we were just being real. You know About our experience we're being real with each other And being real with ourselves and wanting to create from that place you know and not just be the good black banjo girls. You know. We're good fact. Fans are women. I should say Yeah just like not not making album. That's about making people happy making an album. That's about making people think You know and I think we were all very aligned in that and also making each other think you know I mean I won't I? I definitely was just like trying to finish the song and needed help in an alley in particular was really there for me when I needed a push in a certain and I think that we all kind of do that for each other. And that's what's really cool about the project. I saw this promo shot of you guys it. It looked like the cover of the record. But a different angle. Still Lindsey. That Hammerfest had her car keys like hooked on her belt and I was just like laughing when I noticed that like that is so funny. No one was like Amasis Ryan. You Take Your car keys off your off your bill rate anyways. We really didn't know that that record was gonNA take off in the way that it has. Wow Yeah we weren't like we're going to make a supergroup in you know Make a a record. That's GONNA like stand the test of time like we were just kind of like this is GonNa be cool side projects isn't it and now it's kind of like Whoa. The response has been so powerful that we're like well we must be on something. Should we do it again? And that's that's where we're at now like okay. How how did we do it? You know what? What do we like about what happened? How do we build on that? You and your husband have a family with. Do you have three children including twins? Yes voice a boy and a girl boy and girl. Cute Yeah When you had your first child Delilah okay. You're not prepared for the postpartum experience and it doesn't seem like you had postpartum depression but there is still this like huge range of emotions that you experience. What was it like to actually build up the confidence in being a parent and when when did you realize that was actually a saying that you needed to do so realizing it. It never ends. I think when I have thought about having kids I just thought I'm going to have this baby. It's going to be the most perfect little person ever and I'm going to be the perfect mom and all of that is just you know like people are who they are in so it's like this incredible learning experience. Like wait a minute. Who are you you know. I gave birth to your from me but you are You don't belong to me in you know like you're GonNa one day like grow up and have to be released in the world and be your own person and you know how do I now. I'm like okay. How do I guide her through that? Because I thought it was just like you have this baby and you have this incredible connection. I just remember giving birth and be like what the hell happened. Why didn't anyone tell me how intense this was going to be? You know who the hell is that referring to my husband. Who is this baby? Who need everything from me and then on top of that. I'M GONNA like release an album and tour what who's going to help me with that. You know it was just like I just felt like things were going to magically come together and there's a lot of magic but it does not magically come together it like you got a plan and be prepared and. I think that I just wasn't prepared you know 'cause I just I'm also very intuitive person and I'm just like we'll figure it out round like get everything in the car and just go and we'll figure it out on the way and then on the way I'm like I should have thought of a couple of things now I know to think about so it's just again. It's been a very I feel like Delilah is like my greatest teacher like she has molded me into the mom that I am and then I'm also like how do I not let her manipulate me because not just five years old. And she's like wait a minute. Can I be the boss like maybe I'm the boss you know and I'm like ooh and before that I thought it was no one's going to be the boss? We're just all GONNA learn from each other now like oh no. I have to lay the smackdown sometimes. And it's hard you know. It's hard to like teach boundaries. It's hard to set boundaries. It's hard even know what the boundaries are and so it's a practice you know. I think being a mom I realized is really a practice and I try to be gentle with myself and I tried to begin with everyone around me. And sometimes that's easier than other times And so you gotTa really cherish the moments where you have a little bit of ease but yeah. I've realized that it was never an option for me to not continue doing music to not continue touring And the two I am so It's a big self-discovery as well like yeah. This is who I am. This is what I want. It seems to me that your Promo photos have clear themes occurring so in a southern setting with an instrument. Cello Banjo Guitar in a place that is imperfect like In the staircase of an old house or on an old porch. There's the one where you're not holding an instrument where you're in that really long Green Aphrodite. Like dress it. But you're at like a construction depot situation you know there's like a Temporary Wall behind you and then there's the one where you're in front of a Rusty Orange Wall in a jumpsuit. Where you know you don't. You're not wearing a Bra. I showed it's I was like. What are you see in this picture? She's like I see orange and orange and earrings and all of the lines are going. We seem like right but like nipples and and she was like. Oh yeah she is so funny. I was pregnant during that time. So like yeah there was just no high those nipples even if there was heart. But like I don't know if it might often thinking there's like specific Intention -ality in those images. Well I'm Kinda Anti Bra. I'm changing my stance. Now since we stop nursing say about that I have been anti run the past. Yeah I think I am interested in the spaces that feel imperfect in beautiful and kind of alarming or disarming depending on who you are what your you know what you're seeing but yeah. I think you know with capitalist Blues. I felt like we have to try to do some stuff in industrial spaces. You know because I felt like I don't like southern living. You know beautiful Spanish moss and floral dresses. And all this kind of stuff. They're living sounds like a magazine. It is but like you know. I'm just like yeah just like the stereotype of like you know the big oak trees or whatever and I love those love those backgrounds being in the swamp You know in fact for for day for the Hunter I was like. I WANNA be in a boat in the swamp at the time where the swamp looks like has all that green stuff on top and I wanted it to look like that and it came out great and for Capitalist Blues. I was like needs to be like more in these industrial spaces. That kind of like make me uncomfortable. You know that needs to be part of the part of the near that that is part of the narrative of the of the album and And so yeah but I always like an you know. Kinda fucked up looking background or like a natural you know there is. There is nature even in those industrial spaces. Too you know rate Looking at human nature human.

"Today we have another interview that I was lucky. Enough to record at folk alliance international which happened in New Orleans and today very pleased to be speaking with Layla McCallum. There is a lot to talk about with Layla. The New Orleans resident has already had a really impressive career with her Solo Work Carolina chocolate drops and our native daughters over. It seems like she is just getting started. I literally had nine pages of questions for her as we sat in my airbnb during folk alliance you can hear about four trolleys rolling by the windows. Leyla is smart well-spoken and so easy to get along with this interview felt like a barn burner. If you can label interviews like that like a showstopper we covered. Her activist roots growing up with three very politically active adults in her life including her mother. Her father and her grandfather. She talked about her connection to Haiti spending a summer there with her grandmother. She is known for her incredible cello playing. And it's so crazy to hear that. She started her cello journey by mistaking it for another instrument. When she was a child she talked about her feelings of being black. Haitian American playing old time music. That has deep roots in black America. Even though it seen as being a white Jon Rao and she talks about how the Carolina chocolate drops opened up that world to her through music conversation with her bandmates. We get to our native daughters her band with Rian Giddens amethyst Kia Alison Russell. All this and more. This was an awesome interview. I hope you enjoy. We're going to take a listen to a clip from her latest album. It is the title track called the Capitalist Blues. And then we'll get to our conversation with Layla. Michaela on basic.

New Hurricane Dorian path keeps center off Florida coast, but state still in the cone

"Newest track will come out within the hour. What do you expect to see. We may see a change in that track. We've had new model runs. Come mouth for both the american model and the european model and both of them showing changes which may in turn result in an official track change from the national hurricane center but here's what we know now hurricane during wins or one hundred fifteen miles per hour that officially makes it a major hurricane. The movement is still to the northwest at about ten miles per hour. We're going to have to focus on that direction and that speed over the next forty eight to seventy two hours because that is going to answer to various essential questions the where it makes landfall and the when does it make landfall but here's a look at what we expect the track to do as of now. We still anticipate additional strengthening up to a category four storm. Unfortunately it will likely be that strength as it crosses over the bahamas and we still expected to be a major hurricane when it makes landfall across some point in florida then the question because becomes when does it turn back to the north these this is where the different models vary one going a little bit further west one going a little bit further east. Here's a look look. This blue dot is the european model. The red dot is the american model. The rent out wants to make a landfall likely late monday night into very early tuesday morning near kind kind of this central portion of florida then it pushes a little further inland before finally going off to the north the european model the new run really just skirts along on the coast and they both end up towards georgia as well as into the carolinas alison. Thank you so much for that. I want to get straight to florida to c._n._n.'s rosa rosa flores who is in west palm beach and rosa. The governor says fuel shortages have become a problem. You're seeing that first hand. Is there a plan that you've heard about to get more gas to these stations. That is the plan. Let me show you around because i'm at a gas station right now. The does have you and you can see that the line <hes> curls around this light from talking to people here. They say that they have been driving around trying to find gas stations. That actually have gas. This is one of the few in the area that actually does but if you take a look here some of the pumps do have gas others do not the owner of this gas gas station says that his family owns four gas stations. Only this one has gas at the moment now. Here's the thing because there is a state of emergency for all all sixty seven counties that waives the rules that allows the fuel of <hes> the the flow of fuel to come into the state that of course is is it because governor rhonda's santa's issued that declaration now. Here's the other thing danna we've learned from the governor's office that florida highway patrolman goldman will be escorting refueling trucks to strategic in critical areas in florida again because they're already reported shortages and dorian hasn't even made landfall but again a lot of people here waiting in line looking for <hes> fuel stations that actually have fuel will to make sure that they can be prepared for potential evacuation and rose a real quick. Have you encountered or heard about any reports of price gouging. Yes indeed the attorney general of the state of florida telling c._n._n. Just moments ago that they have received at least one thousand calls of price gouging most of those fuel and water in fact the owner of this gas station telling us that he was one of those individuals who reported a price gouging of water so we're going to continue monitoring and and seeing if those numbers will increase but according to the general's office is against against state law to price gouge because there is that <hes> evacuation <hes> excuse me that that state of emergency in the state of florida donna rosa thank you so much for that report now. C._n._n.'s leyla santiago is in north miami. Were supplies are flying off the shelves elves in leyla what's going. Is it a mad rush or do people feel like they have the weekend now to stop. We've actually seen a little bit of boll. Oh some some moments where they're really peaking folks coming in and then a little bit like now where you're seeing a calm down <hes> we are in the section right now. We're this was made last night right because of the hurricane a section for supplies. You've got batteries and got a power bank to charge your phone. Of course you need candles. They also have <hes> extension cords presumably leaper generators that could be used should power come out and then take a look over here where you can see. This is a popular item. The land turns. This layer is just about i've gone. They've got some more down here and i can see these folks are looking at the price <hes> getting ready <hes> fifteen bucks. She mentioned to to have that lantern and be ready for hurricane gene dorian. Go right ahead man <hes> so you know one of the things that folks are also looking for water. We were here when a truckload came in. I lasted. Maybe about an hour. I four they ran out. <hes> and folks are making sure that they have those basic supplies to get through <hes> government. Officials are recommending recommending at least seven days. <hes> should should power be out. Should resources be limited after dorian. Donna sounds like people are heating that an <music> our <hes>. That's all that whole truckload of water lasted. That's that's pretty incredible. <hes> thank you leyla for that report and want to get now to c._n._n.'s diane gallagher who is in central florida at the orlando airport diane. This is one of the busiest airports in the country from what you're seeing. They prepared <hes> donna. I would say that they were extremely prepared right now and the truth is is that the effective dory and hasn't quite hit this airport you can take a look here and see there have been expectations chins that you're going to have delayed canceled flights. That hasn't kicked in just yet. What you're seeing over here is all the lines of people who are starting to try and fly out though we have talked to people people who have cut their vacations short people. Were trying to get back. They didn't want to risk the fact. If the hurricane came in early and so here at the airport i sat in on a meeting actually just beyond on those stores there were they sat with airlines. They talked with noah. They talked with the f._a._a. And other members of government officials about how they can determine how how long they can keep this airport open win they can let these people actually again flying out <hes> if the storm starts coming in so here's the thing if you have a visit to disney if you we have a visit to universal right now you can still come but that may change in the coming days

She's had bone marrow transplants and chemotherapy, that has meant some pretty significant hospital. Stays Anderson is also to put it mildly a fan of her hometown hockey team the Saint Louis blues and during the team's visits to the hospital, Leyla got to know many of the players on her favorite team. Her beloved blues were vying for the Stanley Cup versus the Boston Bruins in Beantown last night the day before the game. Her mother, Heather posed a question to Leyla captured on video. If you could watch the game anywhere in the world tomorrow, anywhere in the world, where would you watch boys play games, Boston, which seemed highly improbable, because Leyla Anderson has not been able to travel, what if they told you the blues called in they want you at the game. Boy, how said it's okay. He did. So Leyla found herself at the garden watching as.

We're living in a time where people are, you know, funding their chemotherapy with go fund me that's not normal Leyla sings about heavy topics in her lyrics, but she sets them to danceable music and in doing that Leila's drying on both the troubadour tradition of her Haitian roots.

Going to jail for one hundred years, but we're waltzing to jail Leila's here to perform songs from her album the capitalist blues. And here we go. Lena callo? Welcome new world.

For us is money is king before we hear it, can you tell me a little bit about the song. And who I know this is a cover. So tell us who who wrote this song. This song was written by a a calypso singer from Trinidad name the growling tiger. And the first time I heard it. I was actually gifted a compilation of his music by Dom Fleming's, my former Carolina chocolate drop ban made. And I just fell in love at the record. And as soon as I heard this song, the I thought that I had was I wanna sing that song one day it fits with the the theme of capitalist blues. It definitely does. We're going to hear you saying the lyric. Kobe can you explain what that is? I guess that means lizard skin. I think that's a euphemism for leprosy. Oh, oh, wow. I think the song is talking about how society views you favorably if you have money. Exactly. Yeah. And forgives all of your, you know, default, man. Okay. Well, let's hear it. This is leeann McCullough live at world cafe if a man has money today. People don't care. See has cocoa. If a man has money today. People don't care. He has co Kobe.

So why did I wanna dance while you were playing playing that song? Tell me a little bit about the the musical treatment of the subject matter on on album, my family's from Haiti. And so, you know, I'm coming from sort of a pen, Caribbean perspective. But I think that a lot of the music that I have been digging into over the past few years a lot of it is talking about very heavy weighty issues with dance, you know, studied of music from Haiti called troubadour music in a lot of the songs talk about very intense, political and social issues, but there's always dance is a part of it. You know, the same thing with Louisiana music where? Live..

"I'm Leyla Foulden President Trump has threatened to keep the government shutdown for months or even years. According to Senator Chuck Schumer, unless congress approves money for a wall on the US Mexico border for reaction from the border. We turn now to Jim darling. He's the mayor of macallan, Texas. Hello, hello. So why don't you just first tell me your reaction to the government shutdown over the funding for the president's proposed border wall is kind of typical what we've seen for last four years where Democrats would come down and look at the detention facilities and Republicans would take a ride and riverboat and then have a press conference and go back to Washington that talk to each other. So we're kind of used to that. I mean, this has resulted in the shut down, which is a little more serious. But we've had more congressional people and senators in the last five years and probably in the last fifty years they've come down here. So and we see it firsthand. Absolutely. So has that attention help the border? No, we were kind of ignored. I don't think we've seen the kind of money. You know, we we all have bridges down here. Most of the city's on bridge to cross the river, and we really like to see some attention paid to that especially with the new renegotiating NAFTA. But we haven't really seen that kind of aid come down as opposed to national guard and army department public safety. So they spend a lot of money, but not anything and infrastructure that we really think we need in would be beneficial to the border the president threatened to shut down the southern border. What would that mean for those bridges, and that sort of cross economic trade and things that are going on between the cities on those borders, we own to bridge is one of the bridges of main pedestrian bridge has over ten thousand people pedestrians. Cross a day in probably an equal number in motor vehicles. The bridge right next to in the city next to us is the largest import bridge in the country for produce. Which means you won't buy tomatoes in about. A week any place in the country, and you have Michaela manufacturers, you have parts manufacturing this side. So I mean, you will shut down factories on both sides of the river. Millions of people will be put out of work in. So how do you plan next week? For instance, if you're a factory manager has serious consequences. Not only, you know, the fact that if it did happen, but just the rhetoric in. I think we've seen the impact of rhetoric areas probably been pretty significant for us. What is that? When you say, we've we've seen the impact of rhetoric. What is that? Look like is kind of interesting. You know, before we had the caravan the president Anglo from Mexico said he was gonna shut down the southern border. We had about three to four hundred people a day caravan week that in generate any news that was really caused by rhetoric to Mexico. And so if the politicians realize what they say, and really causes reaction it all started. And I guess in fourteen when Obama said he's going to actually do immigration reform that caused a real surge of people wanting to get here before it happened and President Trump when he talked about building a wall on the Mexican pay for it. I mean, we had. That impact on us. We're kind of the narrow one shopping spot for northern Mexico. And so that hurt us financially. So is the border while the answer in your opinion, for added security in certain cases, a wall or fence or some deterrent make sense. But certainly not one across the great swath of the border in places where ecologically the damage would be much greater than security benefits. So it's really a political football. I think and just aim wound Bill this great wall across the border makes no sense at all. And I think what it does is take away from some of the security issues that are there, you know, the the crisis on the border since two thousand fourteen really dealt with asylum seekers. So when they come across the river, they're coming across looking for border patrol the turn themselves in and I always said the border patrol and really needed more social workers to process, those people. So what do you wanna see from Washington DC? You have the president saying I want the money for this wall. The Democrats saying we won't give you any of this money. What do you want from them? The answer is sitting down to immigration reform and come up with a reasonable budget for border security. That's just now defense, and then, you know, dealing with Mexico and their drug problems. It wouldn't be as difficult to restore criminal Justice in those countries if the cartels in more money than the government, and so you know, I mean really taking a look at it. I thought if if local governments putting handle a problem like that, I wouldn't be mayor and rightfully so. But yet we keep reelecting people that have come up with a strategy because it's polarized country so much mayor Jim darling of macallan, Texas. Thank you so much. Welcome.

Ailing Central American migrants in dire conditions dig in at U.S. border

"At the border in Tijuana tonight, thousands of Central American migrants are taking shelter as they wait for chance to seek asylum in the United States there crowded conditions at the makeshift camp. And even more migrants are now expected to show up and coming days to a drone shot of it seen in crews visited the site found pretty bad conditions polluting open sewage drains this of course, in the wake of last weekend's clash at the border. We're thirty said the rocks were thrown at border patrol officers. Tear gas was fired in return now all of this. There's a new estimate tonight on how many undocumented immigrants there are in the United States. The Pew Research Center says the number continues to shrink this interest estimate shows about ten point seven million undocumented immigrants in the country two thousand and sixteen the most recent year that government numbers are available. That is the lowest estimate in a decade. Now it just before airtime I spoke with Univision's anchor hor Ramos who is in Tijuana poor. Hey, the situation where you are now in Tijuana some of described it, I know the city's mayor. Describes it as a crisis has been asking for humanitarian help. Can you just tell me what you have been seeing what you've been hearing what I'm seeing right now. And what I'm hearing is that we'll ride in the meal with like minded Tyree on international crisis. Of course, there's a lot of blame to go around become blame the Central American governments for extreme poverty rampant corruption for the gangs for the violence. We complained a Mexican government for allowing all these info American runs through calm here. Would we can also blame the United States in? But Trump administration for creating a bottleneck let me just give you an idea, and we're here in DC refugee camp, these refugee there about six thousand people among them one thousand children, and they wanna go to the other side of that wolf that's the United States right right over there. But they can't because every single day the Trump administration, and he's only processing about one hundred asylum applications, and we thought you'll take months for many of the people over here just to go to the United States. And you got so many trying illegal ways to get into the United States. What are the conditions in the camp like 'cause I was talking to a reporter Leyla Santiago yesterday looked like there was a lot of water on the ground who've were complaining about access to food about even the toilet facilities. It is the the conditions are terrible. What I see? I see a lot of trash around me. I I've been talking to to family sold. They long many of the kids are are thick. You can see people coughing is getting really called that at night. There's no possibility for them to go anywhere else are more people continuing to arrive at to stay at that camp. Yeah. Yeah. And they'll calming every single date. They have hundreds more sometimes thousands more the number that I have are are these in this camp last night. There were about six thousand people with talks tons more than new government told him. That they're considering between nine thousand central Americans to fifteen thousand central Americans enough though Christmas in January February more

"We've. Close the border coming into the United States. They will not be coming in our. Minutes ago. President Trump continued to seize on the hectic and dramatic dramatic clash at the US Mexico border to push funding for his proposed border wall into your attention towards an issue that he thinks plays well with his base. The president tweeting today in part, quote, Mexico should move the flag-waving migrants. Many of whom are stone cold criminals back to their countries. They're not coming into the USA. We will close the border permanently. If need be congress fund the wall the incident happened at the Sanusi report of entry between San Diego, California and Tijuana, Mexico US customs and border protection says as many as Faouzi migrants tried to enter the United States sixty nine where rested on the US. I'd order patrol agents also used tear-gas with some families and young children caught up in the confrontation, the border patrol said they were responding to project thrown at them. CNN's Leyla Santiago is in Tijuana, Mexico, this this is not the first time. We've seen a confrontation like this at the border. There was one in two thousand thirteen or others before. Then how did this one started? And what exactly happened? All right. You know, as I've talked to people here, many people you actually see behind me they were there at that class that took place yesterday. And they're telling me, it really has changed the mood of today. So here's their take from this. They tell me that this was supposed to be a peaceful March that they were heading to the border some even hoping to engage the officials on the other side of the fence in some sort of dialogue many supporters were marching with them toward the border. But then at one point, and I haven't found one person who could sort of really give me the exact second. But the migrants all realize that tear gas had been released, and they just started running some men, many women many children, and as a result of that things have really changed here today, even Mexico Mexico actually taking part in in deporting some people saying we are not gonna tolerate disorderly conduct. They've taken about one hundred of the migrants into custody and are planning to deport every single one of them, and that uncertainty here can also be seen as the federal police surrounded the shelter where I am. We're about five thousand migrants are right now..

Oh life with so much easier back then. How great was that? I missed that time. So now, so now Mike Leach is at Washington state. And yeah, he's got a pirate in his office. And he's like a robotic pirate. And he's weird as hell and he he's gambling. But they got a quarterback with the mustache. And after the after the game, they wanna Colorado while Mike Leach was giving his interview the quarterback with the mustache came over and placed a fake mustache on Mike Leach's face. It was sideways. He continued to give the interview, and I just want you to juxtapose that against what happened with Andy Reid and tyreek hill.
