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. And can produce very exciting different new designs. We've all callers that we can produce. Candidate is producing the bricks at a waste and recycling facility and Bro. And as the company expands its production and distribution K. bricks could help lay a foundation for more climate-friendly buildings.

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.

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.

"Over Venezuela. Now wet international pressure is mounting on President, Nicolas. Maduro. For allegedly silencing opponents was jail and torture.

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.

Coups detat: do they ever really work?

"Primary opposition figurehead on Guido appeared in an online video surrounded by men in uniform announcing that he intended to end the rule of President Nicolas Maduro Madero did not however respond as despots traditionally do if they military's desert them. There was no desperate skedaddle to the airport. Suitcases clanking with the contents of the national treasury a step ahead of an angry more brandishing. Pitchforks, though, Guido may well have another crack at it. The choosed a coup at least is an entry in the annals of failed overthrows, but the coup data as a means of acquiring power appears to be enjoying something of a Rene Saenz. This decade alone has seen coups attempted or accomplished in Egypt Mali, Malawi Guinea, Bissau Cote, d'ivoire, Chad, Libya, Lesotho Thailand, Gambia Burundi mcanuff also Turkey, Gabe. Bon Sudan, Montenegro and Zimbabwe, and we may have missed a couple. So what's it like to live through a coup? D'etat? What's it like to be in on one? And are they ever a good thing? This is the foreign desk. Most of the democratic transitions transitions from authoritarian governments to democratic governments have occurred with a coup being part of the process in. So the question is not our who's good or bad. But rather who is the coup against and more importantly, what comes after you needs to keep the patient on India needs to actually demand that the military is to do things the way as in bubbling expect things to be done in human rights expected the law should build tainted we have victory one. We don't have Gabby pets. We've still have the system that was best may Mugabe divide and transfer of power. He's not something that historically tends to go. Well, for anyone least of all the people at the bottom of the hape who are suffering as a consequence back governments anyway and certain Ku's second place in west Africa. They have ready if f. Any benefit people that they were supposed to be liberator. You're listening to the foreign desk with me Andrew Miller when the overstaying Zimbabwean tyrant Robert Mugabe walls, unloaded by Imbaba as military in November two thousand seventeen it's fair to say that any unease about the means of his removal was drowned out by celebrations of the indices rule, but is the short term gain of a coup. Even again as considerable as the end of dictatorship as ruinous as Mugabe's worth the long term damage to a country's political fabric. Grace Mutunga is a journalist in Harare and author of the memoir the power and the glory grace. Let's go back to those events in Zimbabwe before the military stepped in and removed Robert Mugabe from office was that expected or was the whole thing that complete surprise. He twice both really rule and expected in some way because people always used to say that the only way Mugabe would be moved with the bag. Me 'cause they didn't believe that the opposition hits the capacity to move over to Gabby. What happened in two thousand eight refused to stand down after Morgan's gray hit one or testimony into that. So in a way, some people expected that they would be cool. But we're not very sure that it would happen because we thought the soldiers we very in with the with Robert Mugabe.

And then by foyer 'em when you know the soldiers then came onto the national TV because I switched onto network TV, which I really watch because I thought something was really going on.

I'm d'oro at a plane ready to escape the Cuban the Russians prohibited me from leaving Mr. Pompeo, please such a lack of seriousness Mr. Bolton gave orders to high-ranking options to join the coup that was overcoming his way. Dear God, how far will the US? Go. But he also announced replacement for general Manuel. Ricardo Christopher fig wear which I told you about the chief of the feared intelligence police known as the seven earlier in the day. He had defected. So he's out. And he's not gonna go easy, right? He's gonna be dead. If he doesn't win this thing. And figure appear to be in hiding, but we don't know where they are. I mean, nobody knows anything. We might learn something a little bit more. Meanwhile, the Washington Post of all people quotes, the blast people say it's a coup, quoting whatever it's outcome or needed Kigen wisdom, Tuesday's uprising not a coup attempt to Washington Post is right. The Wall Street Journal opines either Venezuelans reclaim their freedom or instability or misery or misery will continue to radiate from the Caracas through the Americas. And there's the inevitable op-ed out. There did Trump fumbling uprising then is really had to be written. We're in day one of what took weeks in the the fall of the Berlin Wall, I can tell you. I am amazed that it is not getting more coverage. But it's what we're focused on my question. Do you one eight hundred five two one two three? Four. Should the United States assistant military force? We've all been hoping that the Venezuelan military would do this job. But it looks to me increasingly like they're on the sidelines. They're allowing the paramilitary thugs to hurt and kill people running them over with armored vehicles. Do we want the Brazilians in the Colombian to go in or do you want the United States southern command to take action? Currently, we're Admiral Shaun buck who've been nominated to be the the sixty third superintendent of the naval academy. Yesterday's in charge of all navy forces. In the region, and Admiral Fowler is in charge of southern command. So the question is what do they know? And when did they know it are they on alert are they going to move forward? And do you want them to the the key thing that people outta be asking democratic presidential candidates? What do they think this is cut number twelve just some video its video only you can watch it at you Hewitt dot com. This is the Madero national guard vehicles running over protests crowds.

"Forty eight hours something like that the opposition leader one glide, oh has called for people to rise up and toss out nNcholas Maduro specifically by asking the members of the military to turn against Madero. And you know, if you if you're right hand man turns against you and puts a bullet in your head or put you in handcuffs as the the so-called leader of a nation. Then you're screwed. Right. Like, you've gotta have obedience. You've got to have allegiance on the part of the military in order to continue to rule of people. If the military turns its beady in allegiance to another person, then you're done for I find it quite interesting. How nNcholas Maduro and I'm no fan of nNcholas Maduro. I know I happen to not like any, you know, leaders of any nations are all corrupt that are all criminals as far as I'm concerned. So I'm just you know, I dislike them all anyways. Nichols Madero was about Aguirre go, I think it was now. No exact date. He was at the OPEC meeting, and he was basically encouraging all the OPEC countries to stop accepting US dollars for oil. And I soon as I heard that report. I I had heard it on the first guy. I heard it from was, you know, max Kaiser listening to Mexico more quite often and a guy named Jimmy door who's on RT. Also, if you heard of him, he's he's kind of a newer guy on he's he's pretty good. He had a guy talking on how you know. It's all about the US dollar and nNcholas Maduro rejecting the US dollars early going to accept. Settled crude oil settlements in euros or or Chinese Yuan. Because they have that Chinese Shanghai energy exchange now trading crude. But when I heard that they're going to be the next country to get bombed because long. How long ago was this was a year ago at OPEC meeting? I cried Google and find it yet. But they're they're fixing to well there. I mean, usually before you bomb a country you stick your own dictator in there. You know, then then you're right. You try it that way I see. And that's what they're trying to do. The next step is just going to be straight up, probably invasion, but there's also the Russian government here. So one of the other things that's been going on is good. Venezuela has become sort of like a flash point almost for international conflict between the US and Russia because Venezuela, it's not a very well respected government as far as the world governments, you know, the different world governments have to like endorse one another right? We've we think you're legitimate. And so there's a bunch of governments in the world, including the US that are calling the current dictator their illegitimate they're saying he didn't legally win the election. It was a scam. Basically. And so they want to put this other guy. In. Well, Russia has basically said we're on the side of Venezuela. We're on the side of Madero maiming Russia said that themselves, and so you know, you've got a pretty big world power. They're backing Madero basically saying, hey, United States, you say out or else we're coming into. How long has Madora been the dictator there since the death of his predecessor who go vets win twenty twelve ish. Maybe five six years he's been there while and it's basically he has presided over the complete economic failure of the country. So it's and he was his right hand. Man d'oro was you know, the second in charge basically during during the administration. So anyway, if Russia comes in there, then you're talking about international conflict in the US invade and also China is heavily invested in South America. They they have. You know, everybody's kind of eyeball South America resources because according to if I listen to a lot of like RT when I'm working just in the background today today, and I've been listening to a lot of these, you know, Medeiros talking to them, they have a voice over do translating English. Right Medeiros, just say, no because we have all these resources, and we reject the dollar, and that is that now they have interest in and they want Venezuela. And as far as he's concerned has spent a long time plan of essentially the United States in Europe too. Wreak havoc on financially, you know, right along since we've freetalklive when reporting on nNcholas Madero. He's always blamed the US for driving currency two zero which is ridiculous. The only difference between the US, and and the US dollar and Venezuelan Bulevar is Venezuela doesn't have an army that could just go blow up any country in the world for not accepting their dollars. Like, you know, the US the difference. Well know, the differences the Venezuelan Boulevar is hyper inflated, meaning that they like crazy in that to the US is printing not no not at the level as they are in Venezuela Venezuela. If you if you go into a bar, we had a guy call and tell us this. If you go into a bar and you order drink and you finish the drink. And then you order another drink it costs more for the second drink in it'll cost more for the third drink because the money is losing value the boulevard, there's lose that quickly. One of those classic. Inflation situations where as soon as you get paid you go and spend it because you can't hold onto it. You'd be insane to do that in a rest of world won't touch touch to boulevard either. Nobody wants to everybody's trying to if anybody has them they they have been trying to unload them. Yeah. Why would anybody want to hold on to that currencies? So so nobody's gonna hyperinflation to the fact that nobody will touch it to where the US dollars essentially world reserve currency. So the United States can really print tone of ton of money, and it doesn't really affect inflation because it's absorbed throughout the entire globe. Essentially, you know, in financial mail, the US has much more control over what they're printing. They have a limited inflation rates. You're right though. I mean, there the bills are accepted in a lot of places we're just a currency in digital format or whatever. I mean, everybody's got to sell oil on the world market. You gotta go by US dollars to buy oil. And you got a year to get paid and US dollars to convert that back to your own, you know. Talking about switching that from US dollars. Sometime we've been talking about that forever. I don't know how many countries have actually bailed on the dollar at this point. But it's been one of those things that people have been saying that they're gonna stop taking dollar's gonna stop being the world currency look at the enemies of the United States. Probably those are the those are all the countries that have stopped taking dollar in my opinion. And I don't really care, you know, like if they want to stop taking the dollar fire skin off my back. I mean, you know, we're in the crypto currency here. So we think that people should get out of the dollar. So that would be a recommendation, right? I mean, you shouldn't get completely out because you know, you still need to probably pay your power Bill a lot of cases, or whatever. But crypto currency is a way for people to protect their value that they've earned from the ravages of inflation and inflation is defined as the increase in the money supply. So.

Venezuelan National Guard Vehicles Hit Demonstrators

"After Venezuelan opposition leader Guido urge the military. Join his side clashes between his supporters in the thirties erupted ABC's, Tom yomas says more from everything we've seen today. Medeiros still very much in control that country. But we saw clashes very very violent clashes that we haven't seen in months. One instance in particular was when an armored vehicle was facing off against demonstrators who had rocks and sticks and molotov cocktails, and they were trying to disperse the demonstrators. The demonstrators are throwing molotov cocktails trying to set these these vehicles on fire and at one point a driver of one of these vehicles just hits the gas and advances in moves forward and ends up burning over some of these demonstrators people were run over there. Protesters were injured and then after that there was exchanges of gunfire.

Molly Grantham is with WSB TV in Charlotte. Said there was another suitor. They were heading to the stadium. You had that concert there tonight? Police sources are confirming. There is no reason to believe at this point. There is another shooter. So that is a direct quote from people on scene saying it seems like at this point they have the one person in custody, but again, the two people dead and two others with life threatening injuries. We'll have continuing coverage right here on WBZ. Another top story a day of protests in Venezuela's, some violence thousands crowded into the streets, and what appears to be an attempt to lead a military uprising against president Madero, armored vehicles plowed into anti-government protesters as troops loyal to Madero tried to restore order earlier today. One vital flanked by a few dozen national guardsmen and some armored vehicles released a three minute video in which he urged civilians and others in the armed forces to join a final push to topple Madero WBZ's. Ben Parker spoke with CBS military. Analysts retired army Colonel Jeff McCausland who says this is not the end of what's been going on in Venezuela. At least not yet today. But we may have hit a tipping point today. That is one Guido who is declared himself president recognized by about fifty countries as legitimate president has called for the Venezuelan military to formally. A rise up against president Madero and actually conduct a coup. It's unclear at this moment, how well that is progressing. There is protests in twenty to twenty four states in Venezuela. But does not seem at this moment that widespread members of the military have defected to he's called his operation, freedom or liberty. United States has said that they are supporting it in principle. But there's no suggestion. I think that the US will provide military forces. So whether or not this show is picked the right moment to do this. Or in fact, this will be stillborn like we saw the coup in Turkey remains to be changed. I know he spoke in the past about the control of the military. Does there seem then to be a slipping of the military off of Madero and onto Guido? There seems to be to some degree. We have seen fill up certain military members rallying around Guadagno soldiers wearing blue armbands to identify themselves in supportive Gaudio few Bickel's military vehicles. Also. So with those groups, but so far least does not seem to be overwhelming widespread support, you seem thousand civilians also protesting at the same time. But again, we haven't paid, you know, individual units were commander declared his unit was supporting Guadagno, and the associated military hardware that might be required to actually Coppell the government. We know that the US right now wouldn't want to get involved militarily. We we believe that. But but the US isn't the only player in all of this. There are other countries around the world that might want to put some weight into this. How worrisome should it be that that as the US sits on the sidelines in kind of watches that other countries will ruffles feathers United States will wanna see actually more support coming from Latin or South American countries and see them actually support this effort by Mr. Otto in the United States, providing support Bradley after this was over in terms of humanitarian assistance and economic assistance, which we have in fact promise, we also see move. On the other side. We know the Russians for example, been suggested to have maybe four hundred military or paramilitary forces in Venezuela shavings may have a thousand now whether those forces are sufficient to be you know, to deter coup or told AKU I think remains to be seen the clearly Russia, Cuba, Iran, and others are also pledging continued support to the Madero government as a military guy yourself. I wanna talk to briefly about clearly there are people in every military. There's people in the US military who don't like Donald Trump. I'm sure, but what's I guess it's hard to say with with Venezuela type of country. This isn't the US military, but what's the standard for people in the military? I mean, if you get the factors in a military. That's a bad thing. Is that there you wouldn't want to see that in new command? No, certainly not and you want to maintain a certain amount of discipline member at all countries, more or less, the military pledges oath to support the constitution. That's really the oath. I swore. And the soldiers that underlie command swore, they didn't it didn't swear an oath to ticket or government except or stick your leader fascist dictatorships. So that's one element. But in the case of Venice, Walea Venezuelans have more generals. I'm told in the US military does and Madero in his predecessor job is done. A very good job in buying that military's loyalty. They are therefore involved in a lot of corruption activities skimming off money from then as Waylon oil and other activities, and the fact that those kick your officers are identified with the government livelihood comes from that level of conduct corruption may impact make them more likely to maintain their support Madero in not defect Guido WBZ's.

"Is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelley, and I'm Ari Shapiro today in Bogota Colombia, vice President Mike Pence met with the man the US hopes will replace Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, that's Venezuelan opposition leader one Guido penguin doormat after a dramatic weekend on the Venezuelan border with Colombia volunteers tried to bring food and medicine into the country, the military shot and killed at least four people to a trucks were torched. Many people were teargassed today Pence and Guido called on Venezuela's military to join the opposition they hinted at military intervention, if the military refuses reporter John Otis is in Bogota and joins us now. Hi, john. Hi. This weekend's actions by one Guido seem to be a big gamble. Trying to get eight across the border in hopes that there would be mass defections from the military those defections did not materialize. So what did he and the US vice president suggests could be the next move. Well, when the two men met Pence suggested that it may very well be a long hard slog. To bring about regime change in Venezuela. Pence announced some new sanctions against four Venezuelan state governors who the US blames for promoting some of the violence over the weekend. He said more sanctions would be announced. And he also said that the US hasn't given up on moving food and medicine independence, Waylon that they're studying some new areas along the border where they might try again, the Pence also came out with some carrots. He urged Venezuelan military officials who are propping up Madonna to turn against his government and take up one guidos long standing offer of amnesty over the weekend about one hundred fifty officers and soldiers did defect. However, you know, as you mentioned, there weren't the massive military defections that guidos people were hoping for okay? So one big question hanging over all of this will the US take military actions to bring about regime change in Venezuela. What advice president Pence have to say about that today? He said, he hopes military force isn't necessary. But that it remains an option, and this is something that Trump administration has been saying for a long time. So it wasn't really an escalation in rhetoric. Pence did make some quite interesting comments about Colombia which borders Venezuela, and and was the launching point for that failed aid convoy, and let's listen to what he said Columbia is our strongest partner in the region and any who would threaten her sovereignty or security would do well not to test the commitment to our ally. Or the resolve of the United States of America Pence seems to be saying is at the US could be drawn into a conflict with Venezuela's. Should there be any kind of major cross-border incidence with Columbia, and you know, as we saw over the weekend. It's not that hard to imagine something like that happening. Pence is not the only foreign leader in Bogota today. There are also dozens of representatives of other countries backing one Guido, including how to Latin American countries. What's the broader feeling about the prospect of military intervention? And Venezuela Latin American diplomats are saying that they're open to things like tougher sanctions. Pence wants them to for example, restrict visas to Modesto officials to confiscate state oil company assets in their countries to close off their banking systems. But even before today's meetings Latin American leaders, including the vice president of Brazil were explicitly ruling out military intervention in Venezuela unit right now, there's a lot of unity in many parts of the world in terms of backing Widodo and isolating motto. And so there's a danger that this solidarity could break apart. If there's a major push either from within the Venezuelan opposition or the US or from some other country to send in troops. And so what is quite does next move here. We'll why does in a tough position he has a lot of international support. But no real power. In fact, it's unclear whether Moldova's even gonna let him back into Venezuela. Their efforts still put up nigga. Oh, she aviation's with the Madero government for a peaceful transfer of power. But in many past attempts at talks doodle has used negotiations to stall for time. That's reporter John Otis in Boca.

But Madero supporters were marching to marking the twentieth anniversary of Venezuela's socialist government that governments rise to power is the backdrop for this moment it came to power with the nineteen ninety nine election of Medeiros populist predecessor, Hugo Chavez, a specialist on Latin America Miguel tinker solace Pomona college followed Jarvis career for the first time you had a in Minnesota that looked like the mixed race population. That spoke like them acted like them, and he was able to utilize much of that to again, promote social programs and to be reelected on multiple occasions. So this populace guy, Hugo Chavez tries AKU fails, but ends up winning election taking power huge media figure on television. All the time dominating everybody's lives and says, he's going to change everything. How did he change things in the last years of his life? The first was political reform. The constitution of nineteen ninety nine which is today being promoted by the opposition, which at that time they oppose then there was a coup in two thousand two he came back, and then we've had dramatic investment in social programs healthcare education housing, but that could only happen as long as oil prices were exceedingly high and eventually as prices decline. They would be a reckoning in that reckoning is happened at what point did it become apparent that amid all of this spending that the oil money was starting to run out as the prices for two thousand fourteen twenty fifteen begin to decline Chavez died, you begin to have shortages of basic food products. Long lines. You have the US sanctions mismanagement corruption, there are several factors. And I guess it was in this period that Chavez's party began losing elections that his successor Nicolas Maduro, his party tried to keep control of the legislature. And totally lost. Right. Correct. It's the very first electoral victory the opposition scores in the national assembly. So they won the legislative elections. But then Medeiros government completely disempowered the legislature, right, right? Increasingly relies on what he will call the national constituent assembly, which is clause in the constitution, which he activated to create a alternative body. So wait a minute Madero is clearly losing power from two thousand fifteen onward. And instead of just fighting it out in elections. He ends up taking all the power away from the national assembly winning reelection with deeply disputed methods. How much popularity though does the president still seem to have if any according to some polls even opposition polls anywhere from twenty five to thirty percent, even with the current crisis. And the opposition to Mobuto is not just from the right there are people protesting against that are protesting because he has not fulfilled the promises he made to the popular sectors the opposition. They're United in ousting muddle. It's not clear that the United one comes next the opposition leader one guy has said he's president under this provision. That says that the legislative leader becomes interim president if there's a vacancy of the presidency. But isn't he limited to holding that office for thirty days until he can figure out an election. Yes. And this is where it becomes kind of problematic because the constitution says thirty days, I'm hearing already from opposition sources saying that maybe they need a year to cleanse the political process that would lead to more chaos, and that's the fear of playing to the military. What happens if you do find a faction in the military, and we do wind up with a open military conflict? The consequences would be disastrous for the country is the opposition movement discredited at all because it has such overt support from the United States for an important segment of Venezuelan society. It is the fact that you have Donald Trump who's actions in terms of Latin America vis-a-vis, the border immigrant families, the separation of children, and then you have John Bolton and statements about the company that baggage is part of what why though now carries even with that said does it seem to you that the opposition is legitimate on some level that they represent the broad majeur. Of society. I think the opposition is a legitimate force in Venezuela. I think that they not always have been democratic..

"The Senate Thursday rejecting both competing democratic and Republican proposals for fending for ending the thirty four day partial government shutdown which is now the longest in the nation's history. President Trump says he doesn't want a short term deal, but he would accept a large down payment for his promised border wall. Why wouldn't be happy with it? I wouldn't be happy. But we have a lot of alternatives. Honestly, we have everybody look for the most part people agree. What I say everybody. I would say almost everybody agree we have to have border security. We have to have a wall in order to have border security. You cannot have security without a wall.

"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. And so that's what's going on. Now, you've got a statement from Donald Trump about his opinion about nNcholas not just his opinion his official Royal decree. Okay. I want to hear it. Absolutely. So statement. A statement from the president Donald J Trump recognizing Venezuelan national assembly, president wine, go Guido Guida g-. I know is be interim president of Venezuela..
