Company creates climate-friendlier bricks
"One major causes carbon pollution is all around you building materials including bricks. Traditional. Clay bricks are made by firing their heated to about two thousand degrees Fahrenheit which takes a lot of energy. But can attack. A Scottish startup has developed an alternative called bricks. They're made of ninety percent recycled construction and demolition waste, and they do not need firing so manufacturing a K. brick only produces one tenth the carbon pollution of a traditional brick. Chief Scientific Officer Gabriella Madero says that cakes are durable offer, good insulation and could be made in many different colors. Architects and designers they get really excited because they can be adopting a building material that is sustainable is as durable as what they're used to using, but they can be vertically.

Maduro Announces He Has Been In Secret Talks With The Trump Administration
"Venezuela's president nicolas maduro says he's been in secret talks walks with the trump administration for months. That's despite the united states not recognising madero as venezuela's legitimate leader. I'm joined now on the line by scott lucas. Who's a professor of international relations at the university of birmingham skull. The trump administration confirmed that it's being talking to senior members his videos team. They haven't said it was actually jiro. Though do we know if this is true madero but it's effectively the power behind madero how the head of the national constituent assembly which is a body set up in two thousand seventeen extensively to write the constitution but really to secure major on power has has been in talks with us officials on several occasions over the past couple of months it was something that donald trump trump and his characteristic mystic way to sorta spill to reporters yesterday and then madero himself came out of hours later and confirmed that the talks are ongoing so the question is not have the talks taking place. The question is what is the substance of the talks. <hes> there are rumors flying around everywhere one rumor is is that is to negotiate terms from borough to depart from power with surender that he will not be arrested by a new government in venezuela on the venezuelan side they are saying saying that these talks are to secure madero and power and that they are trying to finally once and for all put behind the u._s. Efforts to overthrow him by supporting the opposition russian right now. We don't have clarity on which of those stories is true scott. There seemed to be quite a public effort going into ousting the euro of course this has been happening behind the scenes for some time and continues to happen obviously but as far as the public effort from the u._s. is concerned. Things have gone a little bit quiet in recent times. Can you recap florist. What's the current state of things well what had happened. <hes> back in the spring is that america trump administration officials especially the hardliner john on bolton and the second statement pompeo thought they had a real opportunity.
Why did Venezuela become such a high priority under the Trump Administration?
"At the national national security council a position during which he played a key role in designing u._s. Policy toward venezuela one spent most of his career in various government assignments related to latin america. I had a chance to sit down with one to discuss the crisis that has unfolded in venezuela and what it means. We'll be right back with that discussion. After a quick break i'm michael morale and this is intelligence matters one welcome to intelligence matters. It is great to have you on the show and most importantly. It's great to see you again. Thank you michael good morning. I remember having the best mojto of my life with you in a bogota restaurant. I don't know probably six or seven years ago. It was served in a bowl is but i don't think we can talk about the rest of the story. No no it's <hes> yes <hes> andrei race d._c. I remember that place a large board yet lawrence gordon yes yes so on. You've retired from government sir. You spent the last part of your career at the the national security council in the early days of the trump administration. How did you end up at the <hes>. Fortuitously it was the front office. <hes> the state department was looking for somebody and as was the white house the predecessor in the position <hes> had parted after a very brief time they're less than a month and and i had been interviewed previously for the job general mcmaster at her to me. I thought it was going in for a for an interview and instead he pitched me and i ended up there i and in less than thirty days. He's a great guy. Isn't he. Yeah i i respect him. A lot. Gentlemen master didn't know me from adam gave me great opportunity in in his style. He recognizes ignites talent and brings it and let's flourish. Let's dig into venezuela. Which is the issue that i really wanna talk to you about. Wailer was not a high priority. I already for the obama administration. I was there i know but it became one for the trump administration. Why did that happen. How did that happen. How did it go from fairly low priority to high priority. You know it's an interesting question. I would say that we almost went almost two decades of uneven attention to venezuela even before the obama administration but i have no idea why president trump chose venezuela as an issue. It's authentic. It comes from him. It was not something that was briefed or coach to him by a member of his foreign policy staff. It's something he believed in. There are some issues like that. He's that he absolutely is high hi to and is authentic immigration drugs and venezuela. Is it the humanitarian peace. Do you think he was was struck. When during syrian president assad used serum gas in the president was so taken with the pictures of the dead children if it was humanitarian piece in venezuela or if somebody eighty had talked to him about it. It's just it's interesting to me. They don't want almost came out of nowhere. I don't wanna be trite but he did know venezuela from before through through is connections to the miss universe pageant tree and venezuela of course being a producer of miss universe's and takes pride in in the pageantry and so he had been there before and had a connection through that maybe he saw the slow deterioration of the conditions of venezuela so one. How would you describe u._s. Interests in venezuela. Why should americans care. Is this just a humanitarian issue you or is this a national security issue as well and i'll tell you i was at a dinner last night where we were talking about venezuela and one of the people they are said and i disagree with this. I'm interested to know what you're gonna say that. This is not a national security issue. This is only a humanitarian issue russian. What's your sense well. I'd say there's a what i call the trifecta of interest in in venezuela by the united states. I it very much a human rights rights issue. He goes to the heart of what we believe in and these issues of human rights violations or the violation of democracy is what drives a lot of the u._s. Interests and then finally it is security issues a national security issue from the point of view of stability in the region and the inviting those actors from outside of the region who have been involved all the issues of venezuela for a long time russia china ron come to mind and so it's very much of interest to us as a student of democracy. I'd point out that when i started in the region in the eighties most of the countries were dictatorships mostly right wing dictatorships except tellingly venezuela venezuela was a very stable democracy in a dedicated indicated self for a better part of a decade or two to help other countries reached democracy so to see venezuela a slip back into a dictatorship is particularly hurtful. Can you describe the situation inside venezuela today. Absolutely it's a failed state. That's that's the best way to put it. It's a place where nothing functions and what little functions does so through corruption. It's a place where almost everything you can point to his failing. That means means the banking system employment pollution. If you wanna talk about something that most people have a focused on but tremendous environmental effects of what's taking place in bend swell shortage of drinking water of course <hes> energy security public security almost everything you can point to them as well as an example of the collapse of that is you hear about it as a shortage of medicine and the impact that has as well what about refugees talk about refugees a little bit. I'm really paying to see the number <music> of swans and have leftover period of time that only the recent migration issuer <hes> of venezuelans but it actually predates predates that about four years back. We have a little over four million venezuelans living outside of as well as <hes> a result of that initial movement and in columbia in particular. We have almost one point eight million venezuelans invu- in columbia. If you wanna talk about what kind of stress at places on a neighboring country entry just think that's about three times the population of washington d._c. And that's not to speak of the populations of the venezuelans in panama on of course brazil and ecuador approve chile argentina primarily and those who departed earlier to places like italy and spain portugal it says refugees ages in the immediate neighborhood that creates risks does other countries right and then a stress on their ability to respond imagine if you're columbia's already a tough for you to provide <hes> education medical services to your own population just coming out of sixty year civil war than have to extend that even more to an an additional one point eight billion people so one. Let's keep the discussion going on current situation. Why do you think maduro has survived. You know when you have an economy cratered people fleeing the country by the millions as you noted and what seems like a vast majority the country actually despising him. Why is he been able to hang on. I think that's the definition of of a dictatorship there through an abusive power our and the use of might to stay in power and of course using the instruments that government to suppress democratic expression interestingly enough maduro enduro comes to power tapped by his predecessor hugo chavez to replace him handpicked successor. Here's an individual who did not have the grassroots support for a position like like that and and certainly not within the leadership chavez mo so it's a little bit of an aberration and his inner circle is quite small tight and so part of the reason he's remained ain't empowers because others permit him to remain in power. He's got a number of rivals and there is this very delicate balance that allows <hes> individual like madrid to stay in there and let's not forget of course it madero has a very close relationship to the cuban government that allows him of course instant area of support and legitimacy that substitutes the lack of support within his own party cuban support matter to him. How important is that. I think it's invaluable to him. It's not it's just not giving him advice. He takes advice from the cubans and a little bit of a security blanket and of course they're critical members of his security team bodyguard force in palo security. If it weren't for the cubans i think <hes> madero would be <hes> further weakened gained and it's not just him it's him and his inner circle have been born of cuban influence maduro studied in cuba ideological studies if you will and he does have a base of support curious because well. He is very tight with the cubans. He's not especially close arro- castro. I don't think that personally like each other but there's you you know there's a big splitting cuban right. He's more aligned with the further. Hardliners graduated school. What about the russians and what role did the russians play how important you know it's a curious role that the russians play in venezuela it there is no there are no historical ties between venezuela and russia this. This is a relatively recent phenomenon invited through chavez's desire to to have a counterbalance to the u._s. Influence so he bites the russians he invites the the use the purchase of russian military equipment communications equipment doctrine and something that is really a a foreign <hes> import into an sweater he he does that also as a way to provide some regional balance and the russians love it right the russians come in and they get to put their thumb in the eye of the united states a little bit of a counterbalance to the u._s. His interest and involvement in issues like the crimea for example or even syria one. I wanna ask you about <hes> one guido the the opposition leader what can you tell us about him and his movements and where that stands today. One wando is recent phenomenon in politics in venezuela in a welcome one. Here's an individual that's the opposite of a lot of other venezuelan and figures. He's not a tired figure. He represents a youthful outlook. He <hes> i would say that even a socio economically and culturally he reflects likes war of the venezuelan typical venezuelan and he's got a great story behind him so he he's selected to be the president of the national assembly early and he shows up and all of a sudden he takes all that energy youth enthusiasm and commitment and he turns it into something and be between that and the support of the other opposition parties. He's able to really change things around. We were in a in a low point and trying to encourage the regime change change its ways it's behavior and to move towards democracy and he he <hes> rather quickly moved in there got the support of the other parties became a tremendous this natural leader and galvanized the country and so what we have here is a surprise. I don't think anyone expected this sort of thing. He's come through strong and he's gotten the support of. I guess it's fifty four countries now and that's not an insignificant thing so one we we seem to be stuck at the moment. The kind of picture i have is that both madero in and guido hanging by their fingernails. How does this standoff end. And what role do you think the u._s. Should be playing well. They're they're few options and even fewer options after the failed. Let's call it coup attempt of thirty the april i think most everyone was a loser as a result of that event and now we have talks promoted by norway away taking place in barbados. I think that they're only a few ways out. It's got to be negotiated way out and i don't. I don't think conditions are are ready for something like that. The regime has become quite good at using talks and mediation negotiation to simply kick the can down the road to perpetuate themselves in power and and in the case of the opposition <hes> quite frankly. They've <hes> in these negotiations. They've gotten a short end of the stick time and time again so the regime is pretty practiced at eh abusing the issue of negotiation now. Thankfully norwegians have a long long experience in this but i don't think the conditions are there yet. You've got to provide the right confidence-building building measures so that you know that this time the re- regime really is serious and will abide by negotiations things they have proven to do in the past and <hes> at at the norwegians agents can nudge them in the right direction so one options negotiations a second of course is something that is unstated a largely which the international community probably would prefer a some sort of coup something like the failed thirty april event something that allows faction the military two in a bloodless suffered push away the toughest aspects of the regime and create a transitional government where everyone gets sit at the table and move the country back into democracy. The problem is at thirty april. The fact that it's a failed event probably makes that less likely and what makes it more likely as probably a palace coup the only winners on thirty april the military and they've probably now in a position to stage a coup or they could remain in power without inviting important members of the opposition or really only the ones that they would like to co op the thirdly something that's had a lot less talk lately and is a
Trump orders total freeze on all Venezuelan government assets
"On monday. President trump issued an executive order once again targeting venezuela it it said all property of the venezuelan government in the u._s. was being frozen immediately. It also said anyone who helped venezuela's government directly or indirectly would be sanctioned to like we said sanctions against venezuela aren't new but sanctioning anyone who helps does business with the venezuelan government is a major your new step for example. If an american does business with venezuelan state company that american citizen can be sanctioned the same goes for a european bank or a middle eastern oil company they do business with the venezuelan government so venezuela is going ballistic over this venezuela's u._n. Basseterre samuel moncada condemned the sanctions on tuesday the attack kinney's wheeler with economic measures economic warfare and more than wolf economic terrorism and he didn't stop there. He called the u._s. Sanctions a total economic embargo. So what does that mean. An embargo is when one country bans all trade with another country and stops the free movement of goods for example the u._s. Put a full trade lombardo on cuba in nineteen sixty two when president john f kennedy learned that the soviet union had deployed missiles on the island that embargo is still in place and the cuban government still complains about that cuba says that decades-old blockade still hurts cubans by cutting off food supplies medicine and and other needed products but as the u._s. really embargoing venezuela not really people and businesses can still do work with venezuela's private habits sector but in countries like venezuela where the government controls a lot of the economy. It can be hard to know which businesses have government ties better to just not go there. The trump administration has tried this approach before it's impose similar sanctions on iran and north korea the goal being if you stop your business dealings because you're worried worried about getting on america's bad side. That's good enough. John bolton is trump's national security advisor where he was in peru earlier this week. One way to summarize this to a business for example is do you want to do business in venezuela or do you want to do business with the united states. We should note that even though some trade with venezuela is still allowed and humanitarian aid can still be sent there. The new sanctions engines could scare away a lot of business. It could also scare away. Some of that humanitarian aid which like we said is so desperately needed so what's a scam by imposing tough new sanctions on venezuela the u._s. hopes it can deny president madero the money he needs to maintain a loyal following and and stay in power but medeiros government isn't just holding strong. It's using the sanctions as a rallying cry to unite venezuelans against the u._s. and behind the the president a government statement condemning the u._s. sanctions described them as an imperialist attack the u._s. says it only wants to hurt venezuela's government. Not it's people it's not always that easy to thread the needle
Venezuela in crisis
"Venezuela is a country in freefall as economic mismanagement an international sanctions. Combine to create desperately difficult times for its citizens as global debate centers, on who's to blame successive, socialist governments or countries like the US, who are putting the squeeze on the government of nNcholas Maduro, people are struggling for basics like food and medicine. US correspondent Zoe Daniel has recently returned from Venezuela as gentlest Venezuela is not an easy country to work in media vases, difficult to get and even with them in hand report is closely monitored by the authorities and government backed armed groups called collective owes rooms need to be checked for bugs sensitive interviews must be discussed in hushed tons movements should not be telegraphed and should never happen after dark time spent in each location needs to be limited violent crime is also close to the w-. I in the world and much of the story that needs to be told is in the slums, or barrios, where poverty hunger and disparition exacerbates that risk. There are also the gangs who trade in drugs, and ruled the roost in recent months, escalating political tensions have added the risk of protest rallies, turning violent clashes between opposition activists and government troops and proxies, all of this means that the stories of ordinary Venezuelans are infrequently told but when you give them the chance this sentiments a clear. Something by women and men young and old have to realize the critical situation, the country, is going through these days, hunger, misery, repression and unemployment. We spent a week in the slums of Caracas and surrounds talking to people about life and politics. Well, I. Research says that nine out of ten people in Venezuela, count afford enough food, because of hyperinflation, which is rented the local currency almost valueless government food parcels that handed out monthly a dwindling. Sometimes now, they come only every second or third month, and they're often missing case applies like milk. There's widespread frustration and people are starting to voice it. Even with the risk of recriminations, Ropeway sediment Settimio, nothing seems to improve it all gets worse. So I think they should be change to give the opportunity for someone else to rule the situation has created a window of opportunity for opposition later. One guy who was backed by the US, and ustralia among dozens of other countries when he declared himself president after twenty eighteen elections that are widely condemned as flawed, although you get the sense that it's a case of right place. Right. Time rather than one guy DOE, having specifically captured the public imagination ROY Innis weather. It's not just a problem for Venezuela, what the international community has done so far is very important. The recognition of our constitution and of me as interim president Australia did that to what's important. Now is to keep the pressure up the dictatorship won't voluntarily leave. And fortunately them enduro government wouldn't respond to the concerns raised by those who can't get enough food or medicine at a time when political division globally runs deep Venezuela's, plied attracts, at a response almost all of the Venezuelans that I've encountered blame the economic collapse, on mismanagement by successive governments who've nationalized, assets, subsidized goods and services failed to manage the country's oil revenues and allowed endemic, cronyism and corruption. They don't always mention soc. Realism specifically many still harked back formerly to the days of logistics, under, former president Hugo Chavez. But for many observers Venezuela's become a symbol of the broader failure of the socialist model, that's gained particular traction as lift and right retreat to their corners, the world over. However, defenders of socialism, attack outside nations for interfering in Venezuela, particularly the United States, which is imposed harsh sanctions and an embargo on oil Russia, China and Cuba continue to back the Madero administration. And that's a K driver of US involvement. The big picture issues, but for ordinary Venezuelans who've seen they country go from the richest in Latin America to a basket case they just want something to change, so they can feed their families, but from Caracas that's North American correspondent, Zoe Daniel.

UN Human Rights chief arrives in Venezuela to probe crisis
"Over Venezuela. Now wet international pressure is mounting on President, Nicolas. Maduro. For allegedly silencing opponents was jail and torture. Now the United Nation's top human rights official Michelle Basch elect is making her first visit to the country is the latest attempt by the UN to Saul Venezuela's political crisis Misbash, elect will ho talks with both Mr. Madero and the opposition leader one. Why do over the next three days are America's editor Russia gave me more details? Or she'll report on the on this three day visit on Friday, and she said she's not going to speak to anyone before that. And that's more or less, how the UN does this sort of trip. It's a very difficult one for the win because you have here, Michelle Basch alleged. She's a former president of Chile elected by the socialist party, and described by by President Nicolas Madura as a friend, but her office has been very critical of the human rights, alleged human rights abuses, committed by the Venezuelan government. So you. You are in that situation. What we know is that she is going to meet people who adore the opposition leader, president Maduro and also the people, including human rights groups, the pressure on her is to deliver something on that into at least open an investigation there. Dozens of people who have been arrested activists and politicians. And I think she'll be on the pressure to, to see if she can get at least the release of those people. It's a situation political deadlock a not full economic crisis. And it's very difficult to say if she's going to achieve something, but there's hope of, of some movement there. And what exactly is the UN saying about the current situation? They said previously before that the, the way that the, the Madero government had a handle the, the political crisis, and especially the protests have been heavy handed and human rights abuses, head been committed, but. Some critics say because he's a socialist because she's close a politically to prison Madore that she's been soft on the criticism. So that's what now she's she'll be under pressure. Amnesty International is saying that she should at least get some of the high profile cases and open an investigation that could lead somewhere because crimes against humanity. They don't prescribe. The could be tried elsewhere. Not only
"madero" Discussed on Pod Save the World
"Just because they want to come the United States or leaving. Because. Their lives are literally threatened at home because of the collapse of the scaredy situation in these countries and like it's likely to get worse. I mean let's go to Venezuela for a minute these, we've talked about it a lot on the show mostly the administration's really sloppy efforts it regime change. But, you know, I want update folks on the toll it's taking on the Venezuelan people. So the UN refugee agency in the international organization for migration announced last week that the number of n is Whelan's leaving the country is reached four million like on a human level area level, that is seri- level is staggering, I cannot believe I cannot begin to imagine how much suffering there, isn't that country but also from a regional perspective. I mean, this is so destabilizing for Colombia, Peru, Chile, Ecuador the list goes on. I just think it bears repeating that if this White House gave a shit about Venezuelan people or regional stability. They would be focused on helping these refugees, but they don't which is why you hear them chest thumping about Russian or Cuban influence or punishing the Mexican government for something that's happening in El Salvador, the. The solutions make sense. Yeah. And it's not working, right? I mean, you know, Trump is turned this into this test of wills between him and Madero and with the Russians and the Cubans and Medeiros still there, and everything we're doing is making the situation worse, our policy should be to help the Venezuelan people that should be the core of our policy. Everything we do should be about how do we help deal. This humanitarian crisis that means giving people temporary protected status here, that means assistance to the countries that are helping to essentially house, these Venezuelan refugees end. It means in approach to trying to get pharmacists into the country that is not about regime change. We're gonna force eight in as part of a strategy to dislodge Madero, but it's about helping people and then at the same time, working with all the countries in the region, including by the way, Cuba, to, yes. Try to get transitioned to try to get out of there to try to do it peacefully that there's some orderly transition to a different government, a unity government that can accept. Pharmacists and move forward. Instead, we're stuck in this kind of John Bolton Elliot Abrams, Donald Trump kind of distortion effort to completely collapse the Venezuelan economy. And that's what our broad based sanctions are only celebrating at the same time that you're, you're failing to dislodge Madero, or dress humanitarian issue. Yeah. Okay, let's go to a break real quick and talk about how much we love Saudi Arabia, y the US ambassador, Israel seems to have attempted to blow up the negotiations that are ongoing through an interview in how a fake Iranian. Persona got published in a whole bunch of news outlets. But the world is brought to you by policy genius. There's a widely held belief that procrastination is a bad thing. But.

"Now, there was one point of clarification of Vincent, I guess or you told me during the break that one hundred twenty five people that died you thought that was today. Yes. I don't know what happened today yet. I have not actually read the reports on the details of the protests, but the hundred twenty five people was from two thousand seventeen and that was over a series of many weeks. So it went for like it was in the springtime, basically springs early summer, and it went for I think two or three months. I see I understand. How can that makes sense? Why people weren't as much up in arms like one hundred and fifty and one day that would be right thing. And a lot of the one hundred and twenty-five weren't even killed by Medeiros government, gang Madero, also has private gangs as well. So he's got like. And I'm sorry. I don't remember the name of the word. There's a certain term for them that I I'm sure I could look it up, but these essentially Sparrow life theory, thugs they're not even that probably they're just thugs who are on Maduro side. And so he gives them guns apparently. And it's illegal to have a gun. If you're the average person in Venezuela because Madero Madero or Chavez outlawed guns at some point. So they used to have them they don't anymore. So these people are average people from Venezuela. So not military not police who since they side with Madero. They've been allowed to be armed, and then they can go out and do the dirty work that the let's say the police or the military can't be seen. Doing sounds a lot like antifa. Sure. Except this time actually being funded by the government, whether they're being funded by the government in the US is probably up for debate. I would suggest. Likely not. But I wanted to clarify that situation. According to the story here at Reuters dot com, the military installations, so they're they're looking at the situation with the soldiers in Venezuela soldiers who are publicly stating they're standing by their man, Mr. Madero, and the article kind of questions the status of the soldiers right now in in in Venezuela, saying the military installations are decaying along with the rest of the country salaries quickly disappear amid two million percent annual inflation the guy on the phone last night said in Venezuela. If you go into a bar, and you order a drink, and then you order another drink the price has gone up between the first and the second drinks. The the prices of the drinks is higher by the end of the night. So you don't want to open a tab. If you're in Venezuela. You want to pay for a beer pay for the next year? Probably will pay for all three all at once. Right. Like if you're planning on drinking. They update the prices in real time as often as they can. It's crazy. So more than four thousand low ranking officers deserted the military last year, according to official documents seen by Reuters opposition. Legislators are developing an amnesty proposal meant to coax disgruntled military leaders into turning on Madero based on what they say. Our conversations with active officers who are eager for change. So there's the official line. You know, if you're being interviewed by the media in Venezuela, and they're like, well, tell me what you think about Madero if you don't say boy, he's just the greatest president. We've ever had things are wonderful out there. Yeah. You might be a little hungry. But you know, what you'd be starving? If it weren't for the government. Of course, the real feelings are going to be different. Clear. Alkali retired army general who was close to Hugo Chavez, the fell out with the ruling socialist party in two thousand sixteen said the disputed inauguration has damaged Medeiros image among the troops. Quote. The barracks are not totally convinced that Madero is really president. He said an interview but Medeiros worked hard to keep the military on his side well aware of its crucial role. I mean, yeah, the military is what standing in between an angry mob of people and this man being hoisted from the hosted on a spit over a barbecue grill. So people can get fed. He's put officers in charge of key posts in the government and the state oil company, which is called PDVSA, well, offering lucrative oilfield service contracts for military linked firms that guy's pretty portly Vegas. They would have a decent Madero leader of a starving country. Empathizing if your people there Madero authorities have pursued military personnel suspected of plotting against the government, which human rights groups say has led to torture of suspected dissidents and abusive family members, the armed forces will be lost to be sensitive to the lessons of the twentieth. Century. Premises of military quick fix to political instability in Latin American countries, including Brazil and Chile gave rise to dictatorships that lasted for as long as twenty one years in. We're later demonstrated to have a Bismillah records on human rights. And so the armed forces have remained silent as the economic collapse has left. Millions struggling to eat military leaders are quote, not in the slightest bit. Concerned about maintaining their professional commitments said the high ranking military officer they're concerned about protecting themselves and for right now, the military is taking care of their men the best they can you know, they are feeding them. Although there was one story a year or two ago about how some in the either police or the military had captured it straight goat and had slaughtered it because they were so hungry. So they're probably eating better than your typical Venezuelan. But I don't know how much better in one would think that they they would have just stockpiles of food in case like a war breakout. Like, they have a lot of rationally oil reserves because if you're gonna fee-, you know, you might as well feed someone's going to be the guys with guns protecting you exactly.

Let's talk. So it seems that we are all behind this other person that we are trying to get in there that worries me deep state usually wants their guy in and not that the other guy is a good guy. That's not what we're saying is just there's usually a reason for this. And and so on January fourteenth Venezuela's opposition controlled national assembly led by the legislature's president. How do you even say white Guido Guido one we'll call him one? And by the way, I have been McClintock with me, a friend a thinker. And he's in studio with me today. If January fourteenth calling for the removal of Madero from the presidency Madeira was sworn in for a second six year term on January tenth even those presidents. He's been declared null and void by thirteen Venezuela. Neighbors two days ago after Maderas inauguration Pompeo declare that the Madero regime is illegitimate and the United States will work diligently to restore. A real democracy to that country out that whole statement. So so very weird because I'm not a pump fan, and he's very deep state to me. And so for him. Say that we're gonna work to a real democracy that country. I don't trust that at all. And so I'm always going. Okay. What's the opposite of that? And then as the opposition and Madero and not the a good guy. But as the because he's not as he's a Marxist as the operate opposition to Madero attempts to sort of solidify gain, traction January twenty second vice president Pence had take video message for the people of Venezuelan English. And it was you know, on behalf of me and President Donald Trump he ever unwavering support raise your voices and a call of freedom. There is a lot going on there. And let's keep our eye on that. And not that we have anything solidify. But I always keep my eye on what the deep state is doing because we are were really very obviously, very capable of coups. And putting in the guy that we want that'll play ball with us. And that doesn't mean obviously, it's a good one. It just means a person that will play ball. And so I'm always looking at those angles when I'm reading through a lot of this. And by the way, that was by Warren mouse, by the way. Does some good work? So there's that some of the other things that caught my eye there in there in Illinois. Chicago suburb, tentatively agreed to pay a former doctoral student one point two five million to settle a lawsuit. Police officers tackled him to the ground thought he was he was actually fixing his car. They thought he was stealing his own car. So they're paying out a very very big price tag. And there was some. There was obviously stuff going on there that somebody had called and said this guy was breaking into his car. Even though he was fixing it are we getting so trigger happy, and we really really need a call out to watch. We are not trigger we've seen this again. And again over the Las feelers take place, and it was actually kind of good sear rewarding that way because I know cops have a tough time, and that's tough city to be a cop. So I totally get that. But we also can't be that either. So we have to really watch who we are cops are in what they're doing out there. Texas is now producing more oil than every other country in the world. Besides russia. Saudi Arabia and Iraq together that is. That is interesting. We'll keep an eye on this. But this it's popping actually is what they're calling it. Very impressive this energy miracle in the Lone Star state. It'll have stories to tell for sure that's a huge Alpa. We've been working with that for a while. I don't think we realize after to the seventies. When you were told there was a shortage and think about the secretary of interior that went around trying to say, no, we don't we don't have it. What are you talking about were plentiful where rich with we're rich was Steph over here, and they made everybody stand in line. So the only reason I say that is always think ahead to the next thing that we're told there's a shortage of where we're told isn't available to us, and they're jacking up the price because those games are always being played. And I know you know that. It's insane. So we have been as Walea breaking diplomatic relations with the US. They they're trying to stage a coup, but their guy in. Quite possible who knows quite possible? So we also have we also have on the cover of Fox News hour conservative mainstream. That's talking about a vaccine for Alzheimer's, a vaccine for Alzheimer's and that it's working like over ninety percent of the time. And it's amazing. And I think you should run for the hills is what I would do if I were you. I can't when I see stuff like this, and I think propaganda overload. They're putting it in the opinion section. Mainstream. They are doing that for a reason. And I would not trust them at the stuff. And I just wouldn't that they're really throwing it out there right now as hey, we really think this is going to help, and it's helping it's such a tremendous rate that you just need to sign up. And it doesn't matter whether we tests or not. Another thing that's going on that. I would like to talk about too is Goldman Sachs, and it's what they're calling stable coin crypto currency. And if you want to weigh in on this, you can the equivalent to a paper dollar value. So this is kind of an interesting story because about well last March, they were printing the news that circle was a startup company backed by Goldman Sachs, and it was going to launch a crypto currency, and the value pegged to the US dollar, and that they were going in this direction while other nations are gathering gold hard asset war going into crypto currency and doing with Sachs who munchkin is what I call him his name. I always mess it up because I bet he's the secretary of treasury, and he was a Goldman Sachs die anyway. So this crypto currency, what will this lead to our moving into this digital realme currency blockchain is is time stamped at logs. Everything has all of its data attached to it and the quantum government computer can override the blockchain security, so the government can mess with blockchain if they want to they can halt something they can put an end to your account. They can do all kinds of things we have to always keep that in the back of remind. But like if you're noncompliant like the Chinese score you've heard that transfer. And so the fact that we don't have hard assets here, and I was kind of reminiscent over the fact that there used to be tanks guarding Fort Knox. Didn't we used to have tanks like fifty years ago guarding they're not anymore? Ever wonder about that? Maybe it was no longer valid. Maybe there's nothing in there. So we have to do what's called an ESPN exchange for physical shipments. We send him to the UK, right? We don't have enough gold fill the checks. We don't. We don't have enough. Obviously we've talked about this on the show. But I think the direction we're moving into is very strange with offering up this crypto currency. The reason I say that is when it first came out in March, they were announcing one hundred and ten million dollar investment. And if you'll notice the news, they surely don't talk a lot about dissing, bitcoin k they don't they don't denounce it. They don't prop it up there. It's in the middle neutral, sort of they the mainstream media, you always have to watch how well how they're talking about something, and they're not condemning it, which I thought they would write it could possibly mean more freedom. But it also means more data. So they're not heavy handed and serving it up on a platter to us and telling all things are rosy with it. But they're not condemning it either. So I've kind of kept my eye on that to see where we were going with bitcoin. Well, Goldman Sachs are saying no bitcoins. Great bitcoins. So they came out, and they said after the story broke. Oh, we're not doing that. And so they actually came out in an article and said, Nope. Basically, you we're not doing anything like that not even remotely wrong story fake news. They called it fake news two weeks after that story came out. They came back with a well, we're not going to deny that we're doing it. But we're kind of doing it. And or just people just got too excited about it and announced it. But just don't really look at the fact that we are going to do this. And so it was it was a very interesting couple of articles that came out and secession back over a period of six months, and so they they denied it. They came back. They didn't deny it. And they even said like I said it was fake news at it. It it actually brought bitcoin down the then they came back at the end of December basically talking about it again. And so as if they've been doing it, so it's very interesting to see where this will go because when we move into this type of money digital currency. And I know a lot of us this is so hard to kind of figure out and rapper rain around because it's digital. We're still trying to get used to computers. Right. A lot of your other. And so this is such a strange strange way to go about this. But they're really truly is more control with this. This than we've ever thought as far as they do representatives freedom, but it's not it's more logging data control. And I want us to be well aware of this because as these countries sort of move up, the these other countries are stockpiling been stockpiling we've been doing stories on that for last five years even throwing it hard assets golden slipper on ships to store them. So they not detected. Why first of all you have to ask yourself that why? And it seems as though when I look at the last few years, one of the things I find sort of strange is that we went to Russia right away with the Russia gate story. Russia's trying to get into our election. It's never about China. There's never a light on China. Did we not even want to go? There. Did we we could've because we're accusing Russia and that's fake. We have just accused China, but China is the country. We don't ever poke that bear we don't ever mention it. It's as if it doesn't exist. It's over there. I remember Kissinger was very intent on making Romney when he was running for president. We already know Obama agreed to this. But he wanted Romney to agree to never raise tariffs on China and China was the protected protected country that protected commodity, and so there's never anything that points back to China. Except they'll talk about growth, except they'll talk about growth. And so there's been a lot of chatter on the ground about building up the this currency having having people buy into this. Because if you'll notice they haven't exactly been denouncing bitcoin, so they're not they're not causing people to question. They're not causing people to say they want people to feel safe with it bright. So the safer we feel with this type of currency leading us by the nose to get into this type of currency to only have that fail to only China at the ready with hard assets. They already on so much land stock exchanges. They already own so much of America. Where does that trail lead is my question? It'd be easy to instill a global currency. That's all crypto. Yes. Yes. And then also have China to the rescue to create the global currency and where we haven't accused them of meddling. We have an accused of anything we had the Clinton selling them secrets we had nobody even batted an eye. Even when we were talking about. Our allegiance to China to talk about that in that context. Even at the elections. It was you're not allowed to touch China. And so I was thinking a lot about this over the last twenty four hours and just really trying to to sort of look at it from a different angle and say because anytime they point the finger. We have to go the opposite way because the deep state wants us to look in a certain direction they wanted Russia to be the enemy when Russia was at a seventy five percent. Rate of approval for most Americans at the time. They didn't mind using that as the the fog and now or I think as China builds itself owns more and more of America, remember documentation, remember that. I'll be right back..
