Yeah, the story that a migrant caravan another one, making its way from, you know, Mexico's southern border. Up to the United States was broken up. Nobody who No Mexican border agents, really, and police in riot gear. Yes, talking like 800 people. Largely central Americans. Haitians, Venezuelans, Cubans. Spent the night at a basketball court. This is about 25 miles up the road from the border city of Tapachula. And so, according to Reuters. Um You had all this commotion. Some parents in the caravan separated from their kids get that And the officials sought to intercept migrants who ran for the banks of the river there. So you've got migrants then hiding and vegetation near the river. Some allege that law enforcement used excessive force as they raided the caravan. Several people detained And according to the story, it was at least the fourth such group forced to disperse by Mexican security forces in a week. My word has come down to Mexico. You got to do something about this. At least somebody is doing something about it. Yes. So where does that happens that Mexico on their own? Did we tell Mexico on the down low? Hey. Got to do something here, but we can't actually say it is the United States because we'll take off all the far lefties. Well, the thing is, is at this point in Mexico, and this was true even a few years ago. You know the the caravans as they make their way through Mexico create an enormous burden on towns and cities that don't actually have the ability to take care of them either. Under the story out of Tijuana few years ago. There are people who are living there and they were like, Hey, these migrant caravans are showing up. We've got suddenly like whatever it was 10,000 people who are just kind of hanging out here. Because Trump won't let him into the United States. They gotta go back.

Work in progress. Says. We just can't be detaining. Check it because is must be addressed. Oh, jeez. So he is saying to the Biden administration. Can you help the migrants find work? Like maybe a U. S government fund program. Maybe create hundreds of thousands of jobs in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador. Funny that that sounds like the Trump plan, doesn't it? Very interesting. We already know what the root is. That's been figured out. All you.

"All so brandman right. There is a great deal of post marketing surveillance being done by all of the vaccine makers so that means once the vaccine has been authorized and rolled out. They are collecting data for many of the people. For instance who continue to be in these clinical trials but as well we have applications such as the be safe which is a cdc app where people can enter any side effects that they have so far about four million people have entered the range of side effects that have experienced from the vaccine into this app and most notably the director chevrolet wolinsky said at a press conference yesterday that most people have reported incredibly mild and short lived side effects and that serious side effects appear to be incredibly rare. So we want to make sure that folks are getting that information and are encouraged to take the vaccine and have their confidence in the vaccine. Increase dr ronni blackstock. You and your twin sister who wrote a piece for drama that jama journal. I was in our house from my entire growing up. My father used to read it all the time. The journal our medical association. We so we called it pajama but anyway earlier. This year he wrote a piece that was titled serving the people body and soul centering black communities to achieve health justice in it you write quote if there was ever a moment to ask how we can rian vision. What health justice means for black communities. That's right now. And the response to that question. Must be both revolutionary. We need to look no further than the health activism legacies of the black panther party and the young lords both grassroots organizations rose to prominence in the mid to late sixties and despite their short lived success made a tremendous impact through their activism which sent it on their communities right to self-determination and to health. You're talking right now. To one of the co founders of the young lords juan gonzalez. If you can talk about that effect and then we'll get one commenting on it as well. Yes it very super excited to be in conversation. With one of the founding members of the young lords sister and i again felt very compelled inspired to write this op. Ed really thinking about what the black panther party and the young lords were able to do in terms of really showing the ways in which when communities that are most impacted communities that are most burdened are allowed to release have their concerns centered and are able to lead and develop initiatives that really understand the ways in which the social conditions the social. Now that we know are called the social determinants of health. How all of those impact health. So for instance sure. Juan gonzalez was familiar. Be involved in the garbage collective in east harlem recognizing the ways in which poor sanitation conditions impact the health of communities the black panther party for instance sort of took the initiative of screenings in the black community when that was an elected area and so we know that we have so many assets and resources in the east in the communities that are most impacted and we need those communities to be able to lead so for instance with the current pandemic. what would be so tremendous is to have grassroots and community based organizations funded to do education and outreach to navigate residents to vaccine appointments to give vaccines themselves and we know that the young lords and black panther party. We're still as active. We'd probably them really involved in in this work. Very wholeheartedly wandered. Did you ever expect your organization. Young lords to be sited in the journal of the american medical association in a positive way. Amy certainly not fifty years after. We were active in these kinds of health initiatives. And i apologize to dr blackstock because we had a a power outage here in new jersey. So i missed a portion of this interview but yes i was the actually. The minister of education health with the young Y responsibility to sort of develop an implement the health initiatives that we had a which included a door to of lead poison testing for for children in east harlem and the south bronx to lhasa's testing. And also a campaign for community control of our local hospitals. I think one of the big reforms that occurred subsequent to our efforts was that the federal government did mandate a municipal hospitals to have a community advisory boards. Not quite the community control. We wanted of these health institutions but at least community advisory boards That could inform the health professionals in terms of the needs of the community And of course we also always supported the unionisation hospital workers which obviously became a very big movement a lot. The eighties nineties into the new century. So really heartened at the health professionals of today understand the that we did play some kind of a role as joke teenagers and and radical activists in the late sixties and early seventies trying to create better health system for america. Yes and your efforts were great greatly appreciated and it was really important for my sister night and make sure that the name young lords and black panther party appeared in in such journal. Would you like to talk. Dr blackstock respond to president. Biden's response to anglo. The president of mexico andres manuel lopez obrador. They had their virtual Summit yesterday biden and lopez obrador and this is a reporter who was questioning white house. Press secretary jen psaki about the meeting monday when the president of mexico meet with president later today he's tassie. President vital would consider sharing the us virus icing supply with his country. Is this something. That president biden is considering no The president has made clear that he is focused on ensuring that vaccines accessible to every american. That is our focus. Dr blackstock your response you talk about. What's equity in the united states. Can you talk about that writ. Large in the world yes so we're seeing many parallels the situation here in the united states play out. Globally global vaccine equity is critically important. And we know that we aren't safe until all of us is safe. So it is a moral and ethical issue. In terms of the responsibility of higher income countries such as united states to ensure that low and moderate income countries have access to the vaccine but we also know that the virus knows no boundaries. So if we see that low and middle income countries continuing to have widespread transmission of covid nineteen we can see emergence of more and more highly transmissible in potentially more deleterious variants. That again could have an impact on americans here people here in the united states so we just have to realize the ways in which we are interconnected and that we need to not only prioritize americans for vaccines but ensure that all of our countries around the world particularly those that are low and middle income. You know have the same access to the vaccine. United states has bought. I think ordered about one point. Three billion doses of vaccine. That's enough to vaccinate the population several times over right and so there's obviously room to ensure that Lower resource.

"We start today with news of the most recent head of state to test positive for covert 19. Mexico's Andres Manuel Lopez over a door said on Sunday that he's being treated for mild symptoms. He said he was optimistic and was isolating at home. His interior secretary, Olga Sanchez, Cordero, spoke on his behalf. Thank went to be in San Quentin Rafferty is in Quinta wrestle being, She says The president is strong and will continue to fulfill his duties from isolation for more on this, we turn to the world's Latin America correspondent Jorge Valencia. In Mexico City s So Jorge, another head of state is now infected. What do we know about President Lopez Obrador's health and the work he still tending to while he's sick? Well, President. No. Passarella is a member of a high risk group for a couple of factors. One of them is his age. He is 67 years old. And perhaps more importantly, he had a heart attack eight years ago. Now his interior secretary, really be labor the point this morning that he is in good health that he is continuing to work from isolation, and most notably, he was on the phone this morning with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. To speak about the Sputnik vaccine because Mexico's health officials are evaluating the vaccine for years here in Mexico, so I'm low has some co morbidity is Has Lopez Obrador been vaccinated yet? He has not. Mexico began vaccines just a few weeks ago, and the country is still in phase one, which means that the vaccines are being given to health workers. Now. A second phase is scheduled to begin in February, which includes people older than the age of 60 and President Lopez. Sort of. Lord said that he is just going to wait his turn and he's not going to cut in line. So we know the president has rarely been seen wearing a face mask in public. He's kept a busy public scheduled to through the pandemic are the people who've seen him and I have been around him recently. Are they testing an isolating as public health officials are recommending. Some of them are at the very least. For example, the president was with his interior secretary with his foreign relations secretary on Friday for a phone call with newly sworn in President Joe Biden and both of those Cabinet members have said that they were tested on Sunday that they will be tested again later this week. But the president had a busy schedule this weekend as he usually does. He flew commercial flights, and he went to Monterey, which is in northern part of Mexico, where he met with the governor of the state. There. And the governor said that he's just gonna monitor his symptoms, and if he starts showing any symptoms, then he will be tested. So it's it's a little bit of a mixed bag. Margo if we take the case of Mexico, Jorge how much does the head of state's example in modeling influence People's behavior around pandemic safety measures? What have you seen? Well. There was a study published by professor at New York University just a few weeks ago that found a correlation between national identity and support for response to the pandemic. That study included Mexico, So one could reason that President Lopez Soda lords refusal to wear facemasks his continuing toe have a busy meeting schedule. Has had an influence on people here. At the very least, what many public health experts agree both inside and outside of the country is that President Lopez Sotelo's handling of the pandemic is largely to blame for the situation here. The head of the World Health Organization just a couple of months ago, pleaded with Mexico's leaders to provide a better example. And the situation that we're facing right now is that the country is vying for second place and the highest number off deaths because of the Corona virus, and here in Mexico City hospitals are at or near capacity. There are oxygen tank shortages throughout the entire region. So I think that what many many people are hoping is that both the president will will will get through this and so will his country. Was Jorge Valencia in Mexico City. Thank you. Thank you. Marko. In Brazil, many people are unhappy with their president's handling of the pandemic so unhappy. In fact, a big crowds went out to protest this weekend, demanding the removal of President gyre Belson Arrow. In Brazil. More than 215,000 people have died of covered 19. Globally. That's second only to the United States. As Michael Fox reports from Brazil calls for impeachment, there seemed to be gaining traction..

"From the United States military in the way it's being characterized in the media's. We'll check in with Amber Smith on that. Court coming up a little later in the programme, and of course, we'll continue our conversation with you as we do every day at Triple 86 30 W M A L right now joining us from the White House. The well, look at that. It's Ambassador Robert O'Brien, He said. This is the national security advisor is a big deal. And he must have called the wrong number system of the president's security affairs on the mast. Securely advisor. Ambassador of Brian Good to Talk to you, sir. Great talking with you, Larry. How's it going? Well, thank you. Last time I talked to you, you were in such a big shot. I think you were doing hospice affairs back then. Yeah, it was still a very important job. Don't get me wrong Investor of right. And right now at the White House, you are entertaining the president of Mexico. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. I was surprised to hear this is the first time the president have met. You know, they have spoken on the phone many, many times and I've been with the president We've had those calls have developed an incredible phone relationship, and this was the first time to meet in person and I can tell you they really hit it off President Lopez over Garza. Fantastic guy, and, uh, it's been a very warm after it's been a warm afternoon outside, but it's been. It's been masked by the warmth of the relationship between the two presidents here at the White House this afternoon with the backdrop of the cove in 19 virus and some extraordinary numbers of of infections that we're seeing from the country of Mexico. What was that part of the agenda today in terms of the southern border and in terms of The national security implications of this virus. No, it certainly was Larry and one of the things that President Lopez over door was sent on multiple occasions. I believe you said in the statement out in the Rose Garden as well as how much People of Mexico and how much he personally appreciate the cooperation and fighting over it that Mexico's received from United States think we've sent, the president announced. We've sent about 600 ventilators to Mexican icy used to help the people there. Overcome this. But there's also been a lot of cooperation and sharing of information about the virus. There's there's I think a shared indignation that this came from China that the Chinese did not properly alert the world when this was happening, and and their failure, Teo to engage W H O R. Authorities around the world, including American Ah, doctors at the CDC. Ah lot of this virus to spread and get out of control the way that has, so it's there. There was some discussion of the situation with China's well well and I want to discuss China little bit with you as well. Ambassador O'Brien in the moment, but we still continue. We're focused on the state visit. From the president of Mexico. Obviously, immigration must have been on the agenda today as well. From a national security perspective. Does the president recognized President Mexico that is recognized how important it is to our national security to secure that border? And is he being cooperative? Well, he does, and I'll tell you something. That's interesting. Folks thought that President Lopez over door was because he's a socialist and a different You know market philosophy than President Trump and the United States. That relationship would not be a cordial relationship. In fact, the cordiality the relationship has helped US deal with the immigration crisis on the border of Mexico is to play 27,000 troops. Got to the border region and like that's not just good for the United States is good for Mexico because there's so much nefarious activity on the border with human trafficking, narco trafficking crime, Obviously the illegal immigration not just from Mexico and Central America, but from folks as far afield as Syrian Afghanistan. The Mexican Mexicans don't want that any more than we do, And so they put the troops on the border. It's working out very well and that was a subject of discussion, and it's been great. Area cooperation. I don't think many people saw happening and why were added with regard to immigration. I mean, I have one thing that I was impressed with from President Lopez Obrador was and we haven't heard this very often from Mexican presidents, Ambassador Brian that he thinks that his job is to make Mexico the greatest country in the planets so that Mexicans will stay there it not not to force his neighbor to the north to take people who don't want to live there anymore. That's actually kind of refreshing, isn't it? Isn't that a great philosophy? Mexico? Many of us have been there. Mexico's a beautiful country with great people, and and they should want to stay in Mexico and make Max to go great, Just like we want to make America great. And I applaud President Lopez orbiter's pride in his country. He spent some time with the president in the Oval Office by talking about the natural beauty of Mexico, the mountains. The low lands the coastal areas. Oh, and you could see the evidence pride in his eyes as he spoke about the beauty of this country, and I think it's fantastic that he wants Teo to do what he can. And look, we're helping out front with USMC. A Mexico is gonna have a lot of great jobs. Great manufacturing jobs were going to protect our manufacturing jobs here and And I think over time you'll see that the folks who want to stay in Mexico and and good for him. I'm glad he's got a lot of pride in this country. Just like we've got pride in our country. And from a national security standpoint, Larry, what I've said is that the United States is blessed with our neighbors. We've got a great neighbourhood North and Canada and we've got a terrific neighbor to the south in Mexico. I mean, could you imagine if we had a An adversary on our borders here in North America, and instead we've got two countries with which we have great relations. And I think today's visit to shows how fortunate United States is. Speak with Ambassador Robert O'Brien. He, of course, the national Security advisor. You mentioned China. And Of course, we get made headlines yesterday by the president, officially announcing that we're withdrawing from the World Health Organization is that the beginning of moves in reaction to covert 19 and the show and also the Communist Party of China's involvement in this is it time to entertain and discussed sanctions against China for their role. Well, we're going to see a lot of movement with respect to China. You've also got China have exterminated the democracy in Hong Kong 27 years before they agreed to do anything in the 1984 Sino British Declaration, which they said that the one country, two systems And we're now enforcing with one country, one system and they destroyed the Democratic rules Lob a society in Hong Kong. You see what the Chinese were doing to their weaker population, human reeducation camps, millions of people and Out in in western China, So it's it's time that we stand up to China. The other thing is Chris. You also have the showdown in the South China Sea, where we just done two carrier groups there to flex a little muscle and recognize that that is international water, not controlled by the Chinese. In there that's like China is provoking us at this point, the South China Sea, whether whether it's just basically annexed a huge swath of the Pacific Ocean in international waters, and they're treating it like it's like Tahoe up, and you know some some lake up near Beijing. They attacked a an Indian patrol and killed 20 Indians disputed border with India and the Himalayas, so the Chinese air are expansionist, aggressive mode. They're trying to take advantage of the covert crisis that they initiated and now they're trying to take advantage of it to become the world's sole superpower. Chris Ray are directed. The FBI gave a great speech yesterday when she talked about The Chinese theft of intellectual property from the United States over the past 40 years has been the greatest transfer of wealth in human history. And it's time someone stood up to China that the Trump Administration is the first administration to have done so. And I think you're going to see a number of moves. I think you're going to see sanctions on the Chinese officials involved with the Uighurs. Prosecutor persecuting them. Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, I sent a letter to the railroad pension bureau. Fund yesterday, urging them not to invest federal federal railroad workers Retirement's in Chinese companies. I think that the president has already said we're going to treat Hong Kong if it's part of China's going to see a number of measures on that front. So I think we're looking at the whole issue of Tic tac, and we chat. I mean, it's unfair that that you know the Chinese don't allow Twitter or Facebook or instagram in China. And and and yet they've got we chat. Take talking a bunch of their acts here and I use those abs of steel. Your personal data and map your kid's faces and facial recognition, but it's terrifying. So one last question that we regard Ambassador Brian and that has to do with Taiwan. As as we've seen China violate their the people of Hong Kong and their pledge to the world with regards to that..

"That are disturbing countries. Not only Venezuela but countries across west Africa in central Asia. You have wars you have economic policies that are displacing people. So of course, there are people moving, of course, there up. People who feel that this government is not representing them. But that's what the political processes about. I mean, are we saying that the list Maduro is a dictator now in the last election, which the opposition only partly boycotted he only wants sixty seven percent of the vote. The opposition is politically divided. It's not able to come together. One section of the opposition is turn to the United States and said, essentially, give us a hand to use any means to overthrow this guy. Why don't you build the opposition on any day in Caracas? Jeremy you open the newspapers, they're all deeply critical of the Maduro government. If this is a dictatorship. I don't understand what. Freedom in our limited. Senses. He gets hammered on television. He's getting hammered on the newspapers. The fact is the opposition is not able to come together and the deep residues of Chevy store loyalty to the Maduro government. But also. Oh to the institutions of the missions. And so on is not to be set aside. In other words, you have this very loyal section of Chevy stas who are committed to the boulevard revolution. They understand the problems. They willing to fight to defend the government, and they come out in large numbers to vote for the government. But yet, they're large numbers. I said amount to sixty seven percent. There is a political process. Maduro said, let's go back. Let's have a negotiation. Let's think about a new election the Venezuelan government in this last election last year asked the United Nations to send monitors. Why did the United Nations not send monitors? You know, why is the United States government, but tempting to cripple the political process in Venezuela to create the preconditions where you can? Then think there's nothing else to be done except US intervention to anoint somebody as the president deeply undemocratic act. Also, I I wanted to point out and you've been writing. About this and offering analysis on it that at this moment in Latin America, you have this rise again of overt authoritarian fascist leaders like jar both narrow of Brazil. But you also have a leftist president who came to power in Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez Oba door known by is initials. Anglo, and you wrote about Lopez open a door that he comes to the presidency as a man of the left, but the space for maneuvering that he has for left agenda is minimal. What is your sense of what room to maneuver Lopez? Open-door has right now in Mexico, see, Mexico like Venezuela. Like any of these countries this space for what we call fiscal creativity is almost zero these countries are reliant upon private banks to raise money. There's been. Been immense pressure on these countries from the IMF not to run deficits, if you can't raise enough money from banks to cover your basic running operation of your government. What you're going to do is you're going to end up cutting social services. I mean, let's put this in some context. Jeremy OXFAM's recent report should that last year two thousand two hundred thirty odd billionaires increased their wealth by two point five billion dollars per year. And meanwhile, the lowest fifty percent of humanity lost eleven percent of its wealth. You see what we have to? Remember is the very top people two thousand billionaires in their families. No longer patex. They have gone on what I consider a tax strike. So for Lopez Obrador, the government is inherited is basically a government, which doesn't have any ability to provide. The good parts of life for people, which is why he was very eager to take back control of panics, which is the Mexican petroleum company. Take back control of it. Put some money to invest in it to revive panics the moment he made those comments after he won the election. He was stored directly by banks by the IMF, and by international oil companies that don't you dare do that. Don't you dare try to use public financing to.

"Rising at the Latino by down a path Matala, this is democracy. Now. I mean, he Goodman with Juan Gonzalez we continue to look at what's taking place in Venezuela. I wanna turn to her. Hey, Idei Venezuela's foreign minister Venezuela's former vice president as well and Chavez's son-in-law the former president of then well, I smoked him last week. I wanna turn to an unaired excerpt of that interview. I asked him about the increasing pressure on the Douro government from the US and other countries. This has been happening since nineteen ninety nine. Our late. President Commandante Chavez was also seen as a dictator as-associated dictator and the United States government was behind the coup in two thousand and two all these avatars to our oil industry. So this has been happening because we have the objective the goal of changing the model of of of building a new democratic society, which we called the socialism of the of this new century, and we have the right to do it. We an independent and sovereign country. And the thing is that here in the United States, not in the United States. I must say now the people of the United States, but the elite that is empower that is ruled in the United States they want they believe that is their bags yard. They want to impose their model and they want to. This presidents who are also businessman on who follow the orders of of of of the president of the United States, but we are not. So we're trying to build their own society and in new terms and with equality with access to health education to housing to Coulter. And that is our struggle. And of course, what happens is that. In those terms, the US, elite and other countries satellite countries of the United States. They are trained to isolate Venezuela. Government. They're trying to stop this from happening, and it's not going to happen. But this is a difficult struggle, Amy, and we are really. Looking and pressing Madero has looked for all the paths or the way for dialogue. We had a dialogue process last year with the opposition in Dominican Republic hosted by the president of the mini con Republic and the former president of Spain for that he gets up potato on when we reached the agreement. We were there to sign the agreement the opposition received orders from the State Department here, and they didn't sign and then they didn't some of the parties it didn't resistant for the elections. And now they say that the elections were a fraud. And now, they say them that is all part of a Khuda time pro in progress encouraged, unfunded by the United States government. And what does it mean to you that I'm low the president of Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez over for the stance? He has taken in support of Venezuela. I'm Lou the president of Mexico is very important for Latin America the moment. It's one of the most important countries. It has more this with the United States, and they with with these new government. They are a gain of sovereign country and trying to help not only Venezuela and trying to help me cut out trying to help Cuba within trying to help the other countries. They want to have good relations with all the countries in not America. But they want to solve the Latin American issues in Latin America and no interventionism interventionism from the United States in our countries. President Lopez overthrow or refused to back the Lima group stance questioning Medeiros legitimacy he said, we've said with a lot of clarity that we're going to respect the constitutional principles of non intervention in foreign policy matters. We don't interfere in internal matters of other countries. And we don't want the governments of other countries to meddle in matters that correspond only to Mexicans. Yes. That's what every country has to do. We're gonna be interfering. I mean, you say here in the United States Russia interfered indicate pain of of Trump on the elections, and that's not good. It shouldn't have happened. If it happened. I believe it didn't happen. But the United States interferes every single day every single hour in the Venezuelan issues in the Cubans Nicaraguan an all over Latin America, so it's bad for Russia to interfere here. But it's good for Washington to interfere. Latin America, of course, that's not fair. And I believe the president of Mexico is right. We have to respect each other. We have to respect the principles of international law. I mean, if you joined the United Nations, it's because you respect the internal affairs of the other states. It's because he respect the equality of states. It's because you don't have the right to interfere in other nations. That's not what the United States. Does. They have done wars in Iraq.

A colleague of mine from Puerto Rico has sued villa has been reporting now for several months back going back to October that there's been a ongoing meetings. There was a meeting supposedly according to Dhabi, LA in October Venezuelan leaders in Puerto Rico where they where they met and developed a manifesto to justify the overthrow of of our president Maduro. And supposedly, according to that report that John Bolton for the White House specifically approved of it. And then in. Early January has a reported has sued Avalon reported that the coup was already scheduled supposedly for between the tenth and the fifteenth of this month it happened actually about a week later. But the all the only delay appear to be that the opposition itself could not agree who would be the official leader of the cool. And now, we know it's one could you talk about the conflicts within the opposition. And how open the US has been trying to institute regime change in Venezuela. Yeah. No. That's. It was astonishing actually on January twenty third. I don't think anybody really expected the has the rapid cascade of events. I mean, I in the morning.

"Federal courthouse in Brooklyn has hosted since November the trial of one of the world's most wanted man. He was a billionaire and cartel boss. He stands accused of ordering murders and running one of the world's most profitable and deadly drug syndicates Hari Sreenivasan caught up with a reporter covering the trial. And the man known as El Chapo. He is the world's most infamous and ruthless drug kingpin and his federal trial in New York has produced one explosive revelation after another with the story line that is equal parts gangster movie and soap opera, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman ran has sent a lower cartel in Mexico, an international drug operation, he used almost as a license to print money and kill anyone who stood in his way whose was repeatedly captured by Mexican authorities and escape from prison twice the last time in two thousand fifteen through a nearly mile long tunnel dug right into the shower of his cell. He was recaptured in two thousand sixteen in extradited to the us for more on all of this. We're joined now by Keegan Hamilton, the US editor of vice news and host of vice news podcast Chapo kingpin on trial. Thanks for being with us. You've been in the courtroom all week, given what just went by? It does read a bit like a telenovela you've got testimony from a mistress. You've got a drug kingpin. You've got his wife in the stands. This is all real life. It was a pretty remarkable week in the courtroom. And like you said it felt like a soap opera at times with was mistress on the witness stand his wife in the gallery and the text between troppo and his mistress displayed on the screen in the courtroom for everyone to see it was quite the drama. There's a bigger picture question here of the levels of corruption that might have existed between El Chapo, the former president of Mexico. And now there's some indication possibly members in the campaign of the current president. That's correct there were several bombshells this week as you mentioned the biggest one was the allegation that chopper when the scene a little cartel paid a one hundred million dollar bribe to regaining NATO, your former president of Mexico. After that, we saw in a court documents that was unsealed an allegation that's in two thousand six a member of the current president of Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez over door member of his campaign may have received a bribe from members at seeing a little cartel. What are the former president in the current president said all this outright denials, a former spokesperson for NATO called the allegations false into family, Tori? The current president Lopez over door has declined to comment on its, but his spokesman said that you know, these comments are coming from a protected witness at a trial in the United States, and therefore should not be believed. One of the things that is interesting is the tech savviness of his infrastructure. We're talking about encrypted cellphone networks the ability to spy on his mistress without her knowing it through her cell phone that was one of the more remarkable revelations of this past month. One of the key witnesses and. One of the most damning witnesses that testified so far was a Colombian who was essentially hired to be the scene, a low of cartels, IT guy, and builds custom encrypted communications network that by all accounts was working rates and tell the FBI approached that guy and turned him into an informant and gave the law enforcement access to the servers which allowed them to record all of these conversations that chopper was having with basically everyone in his business as for the spyware that was chop ozone doing where he installed commercial spyware on the phones of his wife and mistresses and all of those communications were recorded and the same IT guy gave the FBI access to that data as well. Chapel. React in any way. When his voice was playing out through the courtroom. Not when his voice was playing in the courtroom so much normally he's pretty stoic easy. They're staring down whoever's on the witness stand. He's talking with his attorneys or he's trying to catch his wife's attention in the gallery is most notable reaction was at some point when his mistress was testifying. And we were seeing these messages between them that were both embarrassing and highly incriminating, and you could just sort of hung his head a little bit and seem to be staring down in his lap. Which was really the first time we'd seen any sign of defeat on troppo throughout the course of the trial. Let's not forget this is a man who sat on top of a very violent cartel, and it was financed by moving enormous sums of drugs. Put that in perspective. What what's the scale that? We're talking about. Just this week. We saw the FBI give evidence about a drug ledger that was tnd during a raid on one of Chaplin's properties. And in the course of a little over a month. We're talking about three million dollars worth of drugs more or less that moved through the organization, and that's just what was contained in that one ledger that they know about I think it's safe to say tens of millions hundreds of millions of dollars per year are moving through this organization. The US authorities haven't been able to seize the assets of troppo. So who knows how much he has squirrelled away in Mexico and elsewhere, this scale of drugs is enormous hundreds thousands of kilos of drugs the federal prosecutors when they filed these charges have hoped to seize fourteen billion dollars from troppo that seems kind of like a fantasy at this point since they found none of that money. But it gives you a sense of what US authorities think they can prove the worth. Worth of of the drugs that he traffic into the United States over the years is and for people who don't know the landscape how violent how big was this cartel or is this cartel. We see numbers as high as two hundred fifty thousand people killed in this war. I mean, the the scene a little cartel is the largest and most powerful drug trafficking organization in Mexico. They are moving drugs across the hemisphere and in Mexico. They are in the past especially have been responsible for a significant significant amount of the violence in Juarez, for example, along the border with El Paso, Texas.

You have massive flight from Venezuela. The U N High Commissioner for refugees has called the ongoing Venezuelan migration crisis unprecedented and Latin America, the UN estimates about three million Venezuelans have left since two thousand fifteen. Another two million are projected to leave this year about a million of them are living in Columbia half a million, Peru Ecuador Argentine Chile, Panama Brazil, all have large numbers, why foreign minister audience are so many people so many Venezuelans leaving. Well, I it's not the you know, how many Colombians leaving Venezuela. Six million Columbus live from Venezuela over Peruvians Ecuadoreans over one million Spaniards entirely and Portuguese Arabs over two million. So of course, there migration at the moment because we are blocked because it's difficult to find medicine to find some some produce of food and the hyper inflation process with an exchange rate. Amy that isn't that set by the national authorities in Venezuela by the central Bank? It's set by web pages in Miami. No the exchange rate the day before Medeiros integration was one dollar one thousand believers, which is crazy the day of the inauguration, duplicate it it was two thousand Williams for one daughter, and that has no economic logic. That is old political. That is warfare is using the currency against our own people. So we are worried, of course, because they're Venezuela. It's not three million Venezuelans. It's probably one million Venezuelans most of the people that have the have a gun to Colombia or Colombian the leave in Venezuela and have gone back to their country, and we're willing to come back to Venezuela. That's what we want for the Venezuelans under columnist leaving Venezuela to come back to Venezuela. But the economy. Inflation over a million percent last year the highest rate in the world. That's the figure of the IMF. The that's not the that's not the figure out all it's probably ten times less than that. It's a very difficult problem. But this inflation is induced from abroad, it is produced by these web pages and all these warfare warfare against Venezuela. It is not only because we have not taken some measures in Venezuela. Of course, it's not it's it makes things very difficult for the Venezuelan people so food and medicine shortages, do you feel that your governmental dodo government, take some responsibility for what's taking perfect as the government? Here is not perfect at all. And the government in Argentina Argentina's not perfect. Of course, we we have responsibilities, but most of the problem, the vast majority of the problems and Venezuela are caused by. Blockade caused by the warfare economic warfare against Venezuela. And in spite of all of that we are in the best situation today than we were in twenty sixteen. There is more food. There's more medicine. There's more the employment is under six with unemployment is under six percent and many things. I mean, we have not closed one school wind university one hospital. We have not expelled the Cuban doctors because we have to protect our people. We have delivered more than two million five hundred houses to our people in the last four years, and that is investment that we have made in spite of the sanctions in spite of the blockade against Venezuela. So let me ask you about Human Rights Watch. And the Venezuelan NGO photo panel recently releasing a report accusing Venezuelan intelligence and security forces of detaining and torturing military personnel accused of plotting against the government. The report claims, quote, some detainees were subjected to agree just. Abuses that amount to torture to force them to provide information about alleged conspiracy, psychological warfare against Venezuela. Of course, detainees that Warren plots last year to overthrow Madero. But with no one is torturing them this happened in the last century in Venezuela. We will use to Tertre will use to students being killed in the streets. Every week we were used to repression that's topped with the Bolivarian revolution doesn't happen anymore.

So I want to ask you about other leaders in Latin America on the one hand, you have Brazil's far-right precedent now. J your Bolsonaro Sinato and Argentina's president muddy CO mockery meeting to discuss joint opposition to the Venezuelan government. And then you have the newly elected president of Mexico. I'm low Andres Manuel Lopez Oprah or who is not joining with these other countries who are opposing Venezuela. But I talk about democracy. Boston auto alliance, and what that means joining with the US. Yes us I told you this in Latin America is it's like a company. No corporation. Trump is is the CEO of a corporation, and this presidents who are businessmen his directors. And they wanted to be promoted by President Trump. So they have to do they have to follow the orders. And they have said that they have to isolate Maduro that they have to the not recognize Maduro says government, and they have to do what these the United. State says so in order to overthrow Madero. And that's what they're doing. Of course, we're worried about Brazil because this man is far on the right now. It's fussy some again, it's it's what we felt the what we believed to have disappeared from the Latin American history. It's happening again. This man hates women. This man hates the black population. This man hates the homosexual community. These men hastened Venezuelans he's racist. We're worried about Brazil. He hates the poor. But loves the Brazilian former Brazilian military dictatorships he loves the dictatorship. What is it mean to you that the president of Mexico Andre Manuel Lopez over for the stance he has taken and support Venezuela? They believe the president of Mexico is right. We have to respect each other. We have to respect the principles of international law. I mean, if you joined the United na-. Nations. It's because you respect the internal affairs of the other states is because he was spent the equality of states. It's because you don't have the right to interfere in other nations. That's not what the United States. Does. They have done wars in Iraq. President Trump said that he regretted we regretted that the United States invaded Iraq. Because now the situation is worse than it was with Saddam Hussein on the same. You see the same thing happening. And of course, very serious similarity. You have George W Bush coining the term or his people writing the term and him saying it in two thousand two axis of evil which set up the foundation for the invasion of Iraq. And then you have the US talking about the trick of Karen and the similarities between Iraq and Venezuela are three letters oil and interestingly many years ago, the original name of the invasion of Iraq was going to be operation. On Iraqi liberation, but they realize the acronym which oil, and they had to change it that was the United States. But what about the similarity on this resource focusing on countries that are, you know, the world's more most important oil providers. I am sure that if we only had bananas. None of this intervention would be happening. But we have oil we have gas. We have found gold. We have silver. We have books. It. We have Iran. We have water. I mean Venezuelan he's a very rich wealthy combination. And that is why they want to rule the country again as they did until one thousand nine hundred ninety eight they wanted to have control of the Venezuelan resources. And that is why they're so obsessed to overthrow Madero because they want to have these resources for the development of capitalism here in the United States. What do you think this coup will look like if it takes place, first of all, I cannot take place. We is we have to defend our constitution. And we have to defend the piece of Venezuelan people on the military forces in the in Venezuela. Are aligned with the constitution. They support the constitution. And as as a consequence of that this report that legitimate president. Who is nNcholas Maduro no doubt about it. So it won't happen. But what they would like to happen is that some military's say that he's not the president anymore. And then they would appoint this junk fellow y dole as president was with no constitutional support. And then they will have control of the oil Venezuela. You said the oil they have control of the company's on Venezuela of the resources of the gold and everything, and they believe that is possible. That's not possible. Not not in Venezuela. Maybe in some other countries Venezuela. I'm looking at a tweet that just came over from Florida Senator Marco Rubio, he says we must support those members of military in Venezuela who have announced they will defend the constitution and recognize why though as legitimate interim president. That's the president of the national assembly. Those are supposedly military people. They live in Peru. They don't leave Venezuela. You're talking about the picture. He tweeted out the video of military Mets last night came. And and it's it's supposedly Venezuelan militaries. Who live in Peru. I mean, that's part of the show are probably paid. Maybe by the Peruvian government. I don't know. They're in the Peruvian TV that's not happening in Venezuela. That's what Marco Rubio wants this war to happen in Venezuela that the military were to announce that they don't recognize pressing that's going to happen. And if it were to happen, a small group, we are ready for for any scenario. But that's the time when that's a good proof of what Bolton pens and Trump Marco Rubio want for Venezuela. Well, let me ask you about the issue of press freedom in Venezuela in December the seventy five year old newspaper El Nacional published its last issue. It was the largest remaining opposition newspaper publishing in Venezuela. The committee to protect journalists reported the closure was due to restrictions that the government imposed on access to newsprint, according to CPJ over twenty Venezuelan publications have been forced out of print due to government restrictions on newsprint Natalie south. CPJ said, quote, the disappearance of El Nacional's print edition is the latest casualty of the Venezuelan government's ever expanding campaign to silence critical reporting and limit the voices of independent media in the country before all this economic trouble and problems we have we used to subsidize the imports of paper for the newspapers. And now it's the private newspapers that have to import their own newspaper, and it's more expensive. So that's what happened to a national book. You can take the social networks. You can take Twitter you can putting in in Google. You can Google kill Maduro Mata guru, Melita Maruto, and it's all over all the media in Venezuela. The radio stations newspapers TV broadcasting channels of the opposition probably seventy percent of the media in Venezuela, which is private he's against the government are an encouraging all these situations to have them because they are owned by the wealthy families traditional wealthy families of Venezuela. But I mean, that's part of the show saying that in Venezuela. There's no free press and forget about the shutting down of this. Almost two dozen. It's not true is now. Bankrupt. They don't have enough money. They don't sell enough newspaper in order to have money to import owning their own paper for non Venezuelan audience. How you define the Bolivarian revolution. I mean, you are the foreign minister under Maduro. You're also the son-in-law of Chavez talk about that history. The history of the Bolivarian revolution is a process of independence of giving back. The people the rights of guaranteeing that the people have access to health to education to housing to Kotor to their national identity to the sovereignty. That is the Venezuelan revolution democratizing, our society, really democratizing, the human rights in Venezuela. That is what we're trying to do using the wealth of the oil on the other night and natural resources to invest it in in the people for the people as ABRAHAM LINCOLN said, that's our mean that's our goal. That's what's happening. But because those resources are not for the US not for the interests in the world, they are trying to overthrow president. And then president, and they will continue we present would like to have a conversation with Chris. Trump, and it would probably solve some issues because I am sure that when they the if they were to talk and see each other to the ice, they would see the they can they can coexist, and they can fulfill some some agreements who between them..

"Government shutdown drags on. But a president tells us people that he's standing his ground. Yeah. That sounds like the US, but that's a story from south of the border to Mexico. Lots of motorists are lining up at gas stations. The new Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez over door has been shutting down state run gasoline pipelines. It's his response to the problem of fuel theft. His shutdown is also controversial reporter, Emily green tells us from Mexico City. I am hearing that there are just hundreds perhaps thousands of people around the country waiting in long lines to just try and get a little gas in their cars. I talked to one man in Guadalajara today. And he said that people are getting up at four AM to get in line to get gas in their vehicle, and sometimes they're not even managing to do that. So this I think is a practical crisis. And it's also a political crisis for mex-. President Andres Manuel Lopez who just took office in December. And is this happening? Also in the capital in Mexico City. Yes, it's happening in Mexico City as well. The mayor here estimates that about a quarter of gas stations are affected by this crisis. So the new president of Mexico Andres Manuel Lopez over door has been shutting down these gasoline pipelines is that part of the problem here. And why did he do that? Right. The backdrop to this crisis is a fact that gas theft is a major major problem in Mexico has been for many years. Now, it's estimated that state run energy company. Pimek's loses around three point five billion billion dollars a year in gas theft. And so what the new president wants to do is. He wants to crack down on that. And he wants to close the pipelines. So he can deal with that problem. And so he's basically using massive tanker. Trucks to transport the gas. But take a trucks are big. But they don't make up for pipeline. So when these thieves are stealing oil, they're siphoning off these these fuel pipelines is a sense that by shutting these pipelines down this might actually stop the thieves. That's the calculation of trying to start on the pipelines. I think get to the crux of the problem. But does president over door have the support of the public on this? So in theory. Yes, the Mexican public is not a fan of gas theft. They want that stopped the country losing billions of dollars a year because of it in practicality do Mexicans want to be waiting in line since four in the morning to get gas in their vehicles or not be able to get gas at all. No. And so this I think is a real risk for local. Yes, he wants to get rid of gas theft. But he is rapidly going to lose public support. If this crisis continues, and I think it's going to be a real dilemma for him to see how this plays out in what to do any sense of how long this shutdown is going to go on for this gasoline pipeline. Shut down is gasoline. Just going to be moved by truck from now on. Initially Lopez overdose. Doors administration said it would last around five days, then he came out swinging and said, it would basically he wasn't going to back down. And he would keep the pipeline shut down as long as needed. And I think now they're backtracking a little bit because they see that this is turning into a real crisis for Lopez. So by Monday or Tuesday will no more any possibility. This could all be felt north of the border. Yes, it's definitely possible that this gas crisis could be felt north of the border, and that's because there's a lot of trade and commerce between the US and Mexico in a lot of that trade happens via truck, so if you are sending goods from the US to Mexico and your big four Wheeler, you're sixteen Wheeler can't get gas. How are they going to get that merchandise to Mexico? So this could have an impact. Packed beyond just here in Mexico. Shutdown of a different kind in Mexico gasoline pipeline shutdown reporter, Emily green in Mexico City. Thanks, very much, Emily. Thank you. Coming right up. She's the best soccer player. There is this is the world. You're listening to.
