Fresh update on "national assembly" discussed on Morning Edition

"Night the people of Burkina Faso saw what has become a familiar sight really these days on television in sub Saharan Africa A group of military men crowded into a TV studio instead the military is taking charge of the country The soldiers said they suspended the constitution dissolved the government and National Assembly closed the borders and removed the democratically elected president NPR's Ada Peralta is following the developments from his base in South Africa How did this happen Hey yeah Look over the weekend there was a mutiny among some part of the military and what we know from witnesses is that these soldiers surrounded the home of president rock kabore and for the next two days these soldiers traded gunfire with other security forces near the president's home The government kept saying this is not a coup that the military was still under civilian control but when the sun went down last night these cool leaders came on TV and they said they had taken power on the statement that they read on TV the cool leader said that they had taken power without bloodshed and that some political leaders were under arrest But we really don't know the whereabouts or the condition of president Dracula and all we know is that right before these soldiers came on TV he sent out a tweet on his official account he asked the military to lay down their arms and he wrote we must safeguard our democratic achievements Have you been able to get any sense of how people in Burkina Faso or reacting to the news Yeah they're on the streets they're celebrating And you know it's worth noting as you did in the intro that president rock kabura was democratically elected in 2015 He represented a change in Burkina Faso He was the first non military guy to hold power in decades but over the last couple of years the violence in Burkina Faso has escalated It is being led by Islamist insurgents who have moved deeper into the country and have continually attacked the military and civilians And the people of Burkina Faso got tired of the insecurity And that's what they've been saying on the streets There have been a number of coups in the region in recent months Molly Guinea Chad What's going on over there Yeah look I spoke to Ryan Cummings who is a security analyst at signal risk And he had been warning that Burkina Faso was ripe for a coup And I asked him if coups were contagious and he says yeah that they sort of are And that part of the reason however is that regional bodies and the UN for example have reacted tepidly to past coups They have tried to deal with them diplomatically And they haven't intervened diplomatically So he says that that sends a message Let's listen I think that's a message of sins to a lot of these militaries you know in the presence of weak central governance structures is that seizing power you know I'm a context where you know there will be populist support for such an unconstitutional power grab is quite a low risk but high reward undertaking So basically he's saying that the international community has no incentive to come in because the people want these coups As he says they're low risk high rewards and we should note that once again the international community is weighing sanctions That's NPR's inter Peralta talking to us from South Africa either.

"I'm a child of World War two veteran as as our How many you know probably the World War. Two vets. 16.5 Million Americans went off to war came home, and a lot of them had a had a lot of Children. A lot of Children, so I don't know how many World War two How many Children of World war Two vets there are, but that's uh to to all of you all of us at their God Bless America. God bless America. Alright, so many so many great things to get to, um Now. I picked up my Washington post today because I still get my Washington Post it it Z really something I feel bad about it sometimes, but it's It's a great piece of garbage for me to use during the show, So maybe it should be tax deductible because I use it is the top of the front page a section Maduro. This is Venezuela poised to consolidate power in Venezuela, as like. Viva La Revolucion is the tone of the of the article, and they got a picture of a guy in a biohazard suit or a woman. A biohazard suit squirting disinfectant on a woman's hands so she couldn't go in and vote on election Day to To put Maduro back in power, and they're very excited at the Washington Post that Nicolas Maduro was expected to regain control of Venezuela's National Assembly is C and the US backed opposition urged voters to boycott the nation's legislative elections. They leave out that that's because it's a complete fraud. It's a shame that it's fixed that it's rigged. Because that's what the left does all over the world, and that's concerned that we're dealing with here, too. But the Washington Post I notice is not anti Maduro. They're virulently and And almost psychotically anti trump. But their boy, are they not anti Nicolas Maduro. They're basically prom, adorable. And because they're rather Comey's, You know, they're basically Cummings to and just below that there's a headline Sprint to vaccine paves way for future advances. What's that again? Sprint to Vaccine paves way for a future for future advances? Okay. And then Caroline why Johnson typed up a story. And it's a lengthy story. It begins on the front page with a bunch of paragraphs and then jumped page 14th. And I'm like, Oh, well, look at this. They're gonna have to, you know, but the sprint to vaccine pays way for future earning that President Trump's wonderful Warp speed program is going to be the model for the future when viruses afflict not just the United States, but the world. And now never mind that the FDA is still planning on having a meeting in a couple of weeks week and a half for something in England. They've already approved and there they've gotten the vaccine out to the people. But here the bureaucracy is still tripping all over there themselves. Their shoe Isis Andre planning meetings in the future because the bureaucracy Russia's for no one. You just sit down and you hold your horses over there. I was, like, hold your horses is that it must come from Roman days or something. But so I went reading this story on the FDA is just there. Slow rolling. It sounded so it's amazing. They're going slower than any other government agency on the planet. I think so. Here is Sprint to vaccine paves way for future advances and I read the story with great interest because I was like, Well, now the posters and Caroline why Jensen gonna have to give President Trump credit for Operation Warp speed and Speeding along getting the bureaucratic obstacles out of the way even though the FDA continues to Theo present obstacles, and I read the story with great interest, and I got to the end, and I kept looking and looking and looking. And it must be several 1000 words this this article And the word Trump does not appear in the article. It does not appear in the article and the words work speed do not appear in the article. Well, that's what the whole story's about, isn't it, Isn't it? Carolyn? Why Johnson? Um, it's Caroline with a C. Otherwise should be KY. Johnson, and we'll leave that there. Sprint to Vaccine paves way for future advances So and they tell the story of how brilliantly this whole thing was executed. They do it without mentioning the name Donald Trump, even though he's the one that Han showed engineered. Made it happen for the first time in history, a record setting effort Operation Works feed an incredible success story. President Trump the CEO of that effort, and the Washington Post, Well, praising the results failed to mention the name Donald Trump failed to mention the words work speed. I found this when I was done reading. I was like, Maybe I missed it. I went, I found the online version of the story. And I searched for the words, you know? Yeah. You know, I did word search the word. Trump does not appear in the article. And the word work does not the words speed does not be it Z. Not there. Just just amazing. But that's our media. That's what we get. That's what we get. Also below that the cartel project a murder in Vera Cruz, talking about cartel violence and Mexico. Merry old makeup slain journalist's Story is a portrait of a violent and corrupt era in Mexico. Anybody else Anybody else laugh it that I'm not. I'm not laughing at violent, corrupt era in Mexico. What I'm laughing at that. We're living through a violent and corrupt era in the United States and The Washington Post doesn't report on that because they're the ones who are violent and corrupt. The Democrats. You know, that's a Democrat rag, of course, and they're the ones who are violent were burning. Our cities were attacking the place, entering them by the thousands, billions and property damage burning businesses to the ground attacking violently attacking people clogging pit wearing black masks and helmets and carrying clubs and weapons and attacking pet. Regular political violence is a regular feature. In America today and then we have you know the corruption of James Comey of Barack Obama. Joe Biden of the January 5th Oval Office meeting in 2017 of abusing The FBI. The CIA just Department of Fives Accords. The IR s to be brought to bear against Barack Obama's political enemies in The Washington Post doesn't report on those stories. Even though everything I just said, is 100%. True. They don't report on these stories. And I marvel at what a rag. This awful horrible paper is. And of course, just wrap it up another Today's Washington Post another front page story above the fold remote learning Widens Equity Gap You know, the sudden coming up widens the equity gap. According to the Washington Post. All students are falling behind as because Democrats have locked down schools, even though they shouldn't because they're in the back pocket or the front pocket and getting of the teachers unions. And you see Joe Biden over the weekend, saying that he's spoken to the teachers unions and they want $100 billion. They're holding a gun to the heads of the kids of America, The Washington Post, Laura Heckler and Hannah Mattan son typed up a story. You'll be surprised to learn that students of color are falling behind at a higher rate. This is the Democrats once again doing more damage on a just extraordinary and I just I'd like to find one thing. Just one thing where there was no disparate impact. Where it something that you know Cheerios didn't broaden the equity gap in America. Orange juice didn't disproportionately impact people of color. It's it makes Me laugh, and it makes me sick. At the same time. It's a Democrat.

Venezuela Votes in an Election the Opposition Calls a Charade

"Venezuela holds parliamentary elections today, but NPR's Philip Reeves reports, the opposition and the U. S are dismissing the Polish fraudulent. The election is for the National Assembly, the last bastion of power in opposition hands. Maduro has been undermining it for years. Now he and the ruling Socialist Party a poised to take control, opposition leaders warned that would destroy Venezuela's last vestige of democracy, most of boycotting the vote, saying it cannot be free or fair. That includes one quite Joe, the man recognized by the U. S and many others as the country's legitimate leader. Last year, Guido declared as the assembly's president he was taking over because Maduro's re election was rigged. Why does one sky high popularity has since evaporated? These elections compound his woes.

"Let's start the our in one of germany's power cities frankfurt in an interview recorded just before the global pandemic lockdown typically berlin. Munich can steal the show at the german city of frankfurt shines on its own as a modern city that also offers a great look. Today's germany devastated in world war two bombings and rebuilt with a new design. Today it's a gleaming city of towering skyscrapers and powerful straddling the mine river and the mine river is find riverside park lined with museums and taverns that are popular for their apple. Wine to learn more. We're joined in our studio by two german guys. Caroliina marburg and barbara ship kofsky barbara and carolina. Thanks for joining us. Thank you having us. Currently know when people think frankfurt in germany. What do they think. What's the reputation of frankfurt. The reputation is of. I think in english it's referred to as banquet but we more often call it mine. Hatton mind being the river that runs through it and mine. Hatton the reference to manhattan so skyscrapers banks and all that which however implies a certain lack of soul and therefore a lot of germans like well frankford so it's it seems to be just bank money trade however if you actually get to know it. Compared to at first sight frankford is a love at second side because it is it has a lot of local. Beauty has a lot of local charm. But it's something you need to discover. Yeah and it does have a shiny skyline. It's a city of skyscrapers. I think mine. Hutton is a good name because in germany. There's nothing so close to new york as frankfurt and it's a beautiful sky and they take care of how it is assembled so even though it keeps growing it's nicely assembled. There's a pedestrian bridge across the mine. River the irony. The irony is energy and when you stand in the iron bridge. You've got these beautiful parks on both sides of the mine river and then you've got this skyline and it just feels like a kind of a german new york. It's actually the recommendation for some a night is to go to the other side of the mine river and sit down on the green get. Maybe a fish sooner and napa valley and then marvel at. That's gallon i you know. Most americans they go to to old stuff. I love to see modern skylines also. I like modern architecture. London is great for that and in germany. You wouldn't find that in munich that's for sure to find it in frankfurt and the the big skyscraper that's open for the tourist as i understand is the tower named after the river and it's fifty four floors tall six hundred and fifty feet up there and the terrace on top is just an amazing view at the city. Now barbara one. We're thinking about frankfurt. It also has obviously a lot of history. And i know there was a big struggle in the nineteenth century when germany was being united. There's a small states that spoke german and there was prussia and there was and those were of the leading contenders to be the force behind which germany was united but apart from prussia and bavaria. You had a bunch of little states than looked to frankfurt talk about frankfurt in eighteen. Forty eight and how that was part of this german unification while you have in frankfurt. The famous poet skier it used to be an actual protestant church and if somebody gets the german medal of honor. I'm gonna macos going to give that to that person. In that church it goes back to that assembly in eighteen forty eight. The first national assembly democrats were getting together and saying this is what we want. We don't want the monarchy. Let's be democratic country so it was sort of the home of the german Feeling for democracy rather than autocracy. Yeah you mentioned pulse church. i think. The englishman repulsed. And that's a museum for that today. Essentially can go and see paintings and etchings that period. Our german tour guides to frankfurt on travel.

West African regional bloc lifts sanctions against Mali

"Molly and the transition government that has taken over a mixture of military and civilian personnel taking over after the coo of a few weeks back now to express their disapproval for the coup, the West African regional block Echo s imposed economic sanctions. It's now lifted. Those sanctions because of the appointment of a mixed civilian and military transition government. But the political crisis carries on particularly as regards the growing jihadist threat as well. There's all sorts of rumors back and forth about the release of militants and other people from prison. In return, it's hoped for two hostages. One of whom is a French humanitarian, the other whom a senior opposition figure, actually it's not quite clear whether that's happened or not. Andrew Levitch is watching the situation. He is a Mani watch it with the European Council on Foreign Relations asked him first off how the sanctions which have just being lifted, have bean affecting ordinary people in Mali. Phyllis ordinary people. It really depends on what sector you were, and there are many people who commented during son that they weren't particularly affected by sanctions. So it was a bit of a mixed bag for the impact on Mullins. But certainly it does mean that for many people, I think the process of the transitional government can move forward. And there's the less confusion and less back in port between Nikolas and Molly and then course also between the international community in Mali. And what do you think of the end of the set up as it is? Echo have Bean satisfied that there are sort of civilians in government positions, But there's still many, many military people in government positions as well. In terms of the transition government. Do you think they've done a good job? I mean, good figurehead. Is there a mechanism for the handover? Which everyone agrees on? All the truth is that we don't know. Right now. It is still very early on DH as I've written. This transitional process has been steered by the military wanted from the beginning. Embattled change their very song represented in some of the key ministries of transitional government. Of course, the head of the National Committee for the Salvation of the People is still the vice president of the tradition, and the president and prime minister really seem to have been hand cooked by the CNST. That doesn't necessarily mean That the transition won't go smoothly. It's just that what we're seeing now is that the military and the military junta has kept their hand very firmly on this process. And so we're going to have to see what unfolds over the next 18 months. There's a very ambitious set of reforms that have been laid out and the transition government. There are some people in a government very well regarded. But at the same time, apparently some cause to be concerned by how predominantly the winter is featured in this transitional government. Do the military have an incentive to cede power? They say they're going to go do they have an incentive to go? Well, so this is part of the competition because there have been a number of allegations of corruption within the security services wasn't she is? Of course, there have been some reports that The members were very unhappy at this corruption they've promised to fight. Some of the corruption that was alleged against the son of the former president, of course, was in the National Assembly but also was the chair of the National Assembly's Commission on Defense and Security, the transitional president promised in his opening speech as president after he's Forbes oath of office. To combat this corruption, but we're going to have to see if it actually happens in practice. That's when you did the hard part also about the kind of the reports and they are conflicting reports. We should say of the possible release by extremists of two figures, a French aid worker and the leader of the opposition as well, who was taken while campaigning in the Timbuktu area. Would this indicate on opening of relations between the hunter on DH militant forces in the north? What do we read into that? Because that would seem on the face of it to be good news. Certainly thank everyone is hoping that these reports are true and that the two hostages will be released soon. There's been a lot of conflicting information just today and yesterday about What was actually happening. This does seem to mark very significant concession on the part of the government. Of course, these negotiations have been ongoing for years off and on to start and then, of course, policy say they've been going on again off and on since he was kidnapped, So this isn't just something from the hunter. I think we can safely conclude that this wouldn't have gone forward without their approval.

President Maduro Consolidates Power As The Opposition Grows Weaker

"Backed opposition in Venezuela has spent years trying to dislodge authoritarians President Nicolas Maduro. Nothing has worked instead, as John Otis reports Maduro has consolidated power, while the opposition appears to be growing weaker by the day. It wasn't long ago that Maduro's days appeared to be numbered. His oil rich country was facing its worst economic meltdown in history as well as crippling U. S sanctions. Nearly 60 nations recognised opposition leader Kwon Guido as Venezuela's rightful head of state in January. Why, though, was a guest of honor at President Trump's State of the Union address here this evening? A very brave man who carries with him the hopes, dreams and aspirations of all Venezuelans. Joining us in the gallery is the true and legitimate president of Venezuela. Juan Guido. Mr President, please take this message, but Nicolas Maduro is still ensconced in the presidential palace. The Venezuelan military has ignored y those calls to mutiny. Anti government protests have petered out. Meanwhile, the opposition is split between moderates who favor negotiations and hardliners who want military action to oust Maduro. The hardline strategy backfired in May, when a tiny force of exiled Venezuelan soldiers tried to invade their homeland. They were quickly captured or killed. So is very stock for us. Right now. We have a very, very complicated situation. That's unhealthy. Alvarado Ah, lawmaker with an opposition party called First Justice. The government jailed several party members. Then last month in a legal maneuver, it replaced the leaders of first justice and two other opposition parties, with politicians friendly to Maduro. Alvarado claims these new party bosses were paid off to switch sides. First, they persecute the literature off our party. Then they tried to divide us on DH. Then they replace the leadership of our party with new months that received the money off Maduro. The Venezuelan government ignored NPR's requests for comment. Chef Ramsay of the Washington office on Latin America, says Maduro wants to weaken but not eliminate the opposition. It is ultimately useful for the regime to point to the existence of opposition politicians in Venezuela, as it allows them to say that they live in a democracy. Maduro controls nearly every government institution. Except for the National Assembly, which is led by Juan Guido. But now the opposition is talking about boycotting this year's legislative elections because of fears of vote rigging. If the opposition does boycott why, though, will no longer be president of the Legislature. Jeff Ramsey notes that this post is the basis for his claim to be Venezuela's legitimate head of state. The international community is going to be at a crossroads where they'll have to decide whether to continue recognizing one way, although as interim president Venezuela at a recent rally in Caracas. Why, though, tried to buck up his followers, But if there's a political physical office, you know He acknowledged that they're worn down and frustrated. But he insisted the opposition would outlast Maduro. No, only are the wellbore idea. They are not going to defeat us. Why, though, proclaimed, We are still here

The Siamese political party rots Adine, or the People's Party overthrew the government of King Rama, the seventh, ending seven Hundred Years of absolute monarchy under the kings of Yom. The bloodless coup resulted in the introduction of democracy, the first constitution of Thailand. Since seventeen, eighty, two the kingdom. Or Modern Day Thailand have been ruled by the Chakri Dynasty beginning with Rama, the I who founded the capital city Bangkok. Throughout the nineteenth century, much of Southeast Asia was colonized by the British. French and Dutch crm was never subjected to colonial rule. But Rama the fifth who reigned from eighteen, sixty, eight to nineteen, ten, set out to modernize the kingdom. He introduced social and governmental reforms that were based on western models. The old ruling families rejected his reforms, but from the mid eighteen eighty s to the early nineteen hundreds. Rama, the fifth overhauled the administration established military conscription, abolished slavery and made other major changes in the country. The king was committed to modernisation. He was also committed to maintaining Thai traditions and independence. He instituted all these reforms under the guise that they would save from the threat of Western colonialism. Civilized to colonial powers than it would supposedly avoid Western invasion. Rama the Fifth Son and successor Rama the sixth also worked to modernize the M and welcomed the adoption of some European ideals. His reforms upset members of the aristocracy and nobility as well as groups of progressives and radicals. In nineteen twelve, a group of military officers conspired to overthrow the king, but the plot failed. There is debate over the main causes of the nineteen thirty two revolution, but the rise of western educated commoner elites who become dissatisfied with politics in CSM played a significant role in the event. Rama the seventh ascended the throne in nineteen, twenty, five, He created the Supreme Council of state made up of senior princes who had served in previous administrations. They quickly let go of commerce who had been appointed in the civil service and military. During Rama the seventh rule, returning Western educated students grew disillusioned with the status quo. In Nineteen, twenty, seven, a small group of military and civilian students gathered in periods with the. Founding Party to bring change to see 'em. This group of seven people call themselves the promoters and they decided to stage a coup to end absolute monarchy in the country. To achieve this goal, they formed the canal rot. Sedan or People's Party. The promoters worked on gathering supporters. Meanwhile seamless facing economic problems, the Great Depression made it to the country by nineteen thirty. The value of rice see'ums major export fell drastically land values also fell, so the government had to make a bunch of budget cuts. By nineteen, thirty two, the People's Party was made up of more than one hundred students, military officers and non-royal government officials. On the morning of June twenty-fourth, nineteen thirty two while the king was away from Bangkok. The People's party the coup. The promoters seized control of the army as well as post and telegraph offices, and they arrested royal officials who were part of the ruling group, armored vehicles and troops gathered at the Throne Hall in the Royal Plaza and one of the promoters read the narrow Sadan Manifesto, declaring the end of absolute monarchy and the establishment of a constitutional state. Rama the seventh was playing golf in the south of Seattle. When he got news of the coup, he agreed to the demands for a new constitutional system, and by December of that year he had promulgated a new Constitution A State Council and National Assembly established, but conflict between the CANARSIE DON and the king continued. A couple of years after the Revolution Rama the seventh left for England, and in nineteen, thirty five, he abdicated the throne, spending the rest of his life in England. Was a major turning point in history the next few decades we're still characterized by political unrest and roll by military governments.

Madurable: impasse in Venezuela

"The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro is remarkably resilient. His Socialist Revolution is is in ruins the economy in tatters but as wheel is malnourished people are fleeing in droves but in spite of all and women as I owed the efforts of the opposition to restore democracy have so far failed even with help from America today we're announcing additional sanctions against the repressive regime targeting Medeiros inner circle and close advisors this week the United States and more than a dozen Latin American countries reese will meet at the United Nations to discuss how to increase pressure on the Maduro regime. What will be the trump administration's next move to help the Venezuelan people deposed dictator later our senior editor Michael Read recently spoke with President Donald Trump's pointman on Venezuela Elliot Abrams it turns out there might only be one way out of the crisis and Mr regime would have a role in the new Venezuela who in January why does the president of the National Assembly opposition leader proclaimed himself interim president on the grounds that the Maduro second term was illegitimate because it was the product of Fordham collection the United States immediately recognized as did number of other countries fifty five now most of the democracies around the world and the US backed up that recognition with sweeping sanctions against Venezuela's oil industry. There's something in the National Security Council in Washington was the sanctions would cause the armed forces his who sustain Maduro empower to flip on embrace a democratic transition but it hasn't happened well why not why haven't these wide ranging aging sanctions done any good well. That's a very good question. I mean they've certainly made things much. More difficult for the government is revenue. Streams are being being squeezed that of course means that the economy as a whole is suffering as well but it was already in a title mass now. Some people say say that sanctions in themselves do not topple determine dictators. There's no evidence that that has happened before but they do make make life more difficult obviously what if that have the sanctions had then it may well upping the sanctions that prompted them. Maduro regime to start talks with the opposition seemingly serious talks because they often wanted to play for time using talks these ones appear to be serious under the auspices of the Norwegian commitment and how those talks been going well there were several sessions and according to several sources at the end of July the government for the first time admitted the possibility of an early presidential election next year the beginning of Ogres the US administration slap further sanctions on the regime's finances and that caused the government to suspend the talks position position was not consulted about the research is taken by surprise. I think it's always will resume but they haven't done yet so essentially what interrupted that round of talks hawks was some sanctions on behalf of America that came out of the blue and certainly came out of the blue for the opposition. What do you think the point was. There was America intentionally trying to get the way the talks. I don't think the administration is necessarily united in its approach to Venezuela the sanctions were dream dot by the National Security Council. I think the State Department wasn't necessarily in favor of them. I spoke recently to Elliot Abrams the Special Representative for Venezuela issue of the State Department and he assured me that the sanctions want intended to torpedo the talks rather they were intended to strengthen the hand of the opposition at the negotiating table able by making a government things can only get worse unless there's a deal if and when it comes to that what are the obstacles that remain in those negotiations well there are several obstacles and at the top of the list clearly is the position of my daughter. Abrahams told me that as far as he's concerned the administration is is concerned the US administration you cannot have a free and fair election if murderer remains in power so he needs to step down but he could then. NBA candidate in the election provided the election is held under the auspices of a transition government. That's one obstacle another interest that the negotiators at the table May agree compromises which they then have to sell to the hardliners on their own side and that applies to the opposition as one of two but I think the other big point is that Maduro and his people were only agree to a transition in which they lose power if there is a genuine transitional administration of national unity in which they have clear guarantees which means they must talk a quarter of otherwise. They're not going to do it however about the situation. In the country that's for people who have experienced of these kinds of negotiations -tations incest and do you think the opposition would accept that outcome that there would be a government of national unity a transition period. I think a lot of people in the opposition would bright loud wanted especially those in exile who in a sense have less to lose but I think the question for them as well come on. What's your alternative back in January January. The trump administration flirted with the idea of military intervention without considering anything but all options are on the table repeatedly saying all all options were on the table all options but it's pretty clear that Donald trump is a war reverse president and nobody in Latin America. Almost almost nobody in America wants military intervention so I don't think it's a real threat. What's the other option military coup well. It hasn't happened and transitions tend to be more successful at bringing out stable democracies if they're the result of negotiation rather than ever cruise. That's a point that I didn't Abrams made to me while the third alternative is that Maduro survives wins stays there and I there will be a disaster for Venezuela and for America so I think however difficult a negotiation that involves a role for the cavs movement of Maduro however I'm possible that may be it's much less bad than the alternatives Michael. Thank you very much for joining us.

As it was before the big fire last month. ABC's Tom rivers is in London following this story. He joins us now live. So Tom the language in this Bill could change before. This comes becomes law. Exactly. And it's not dissimilar to say when the Senate has a differently worded bailed vis-a-vis, Bill. That's in the house of representatives, and they have become together committee. Try to find some common ground, same deal in, in France. The Senate thing it has to be exactly the same and the national assembly says, look, we just want to construct it and thinking back over a month ago when I was there the money was pouring in. There's enough money question is what kind of Notre Dame, do you want say, five years down the road? If in fact, it can be completed by then time for the summer Olympics will Tom, I think the last time much of the world, got a glimpse of the Notre Dame cathedral. It was certainly in ruins and it was a mess as what's the status right now. Is it still a cleanup effort or is the reconstruction project? Being the initially was stabilizing some of the some of the facade because the worry was with, with a lot of large timbers gone, the walls could go down in a big snow in a snowstorm or any kind of a storm. So they're worried and concerned about that. Those have now been if you will solidify. So the structure is not gonna fall down fingers crossed, and you're right. They're doing some internal work trying to do some, some cleanup work, but boy is going to take a whole heck of a lot of time and again, this debate, rages, macro and saying, you know, we want international architects to throw whatever designs at us, and you've got some people in the Senate saying, no. In fact, the, the mayor a baris- a socialist. She said, look, I wanted to be traditional. It's got to look like what it looks like so that debate rages on, and we'll see what, what, what comes out the the crux of it. All we'll be this compromise language between. These two very different bills right now working their way through parliament in France. And Tom, we had heard of many donations millions of donations from around the world, and we have an estimate of the size of how much money has been donated to the effort. I haven't checked lately, but I remember that week that was there the week after the fire it was it was like spinning dials with with zero just flipping over flipping over with, with everybody on the street, kicking in money, and yet some big huge corporate players as well opening up some very deep pockets, I think the bottom line is they're going to have well over enough money to deal with this in, in a very good way. The question is, you know what, what is going to be the avenue? What, what tracked? Are they going to take as far as rebuilding it into what form some people say, maybe they should have a swimming pool on others have said, let's make it multi denominational lists have a Islamic minaret on the top other say, no, I wanted to look just like a look last March. Fill in the blank. We'll see what shakes out a few years. Alright ABC's Tom rivers, thanks for joining us on the rebuild of the Notre Dame cathedral..

Explainer 164: What happened to democracy in Benin?

"There are few sites so stirring, and hopeful as a free fair and transparent election in a country unaccustomed to holding them. There are few spectacle, so wretched and disheartening botched rigged and violent election in a country that was growing into democracy Benin used to have the former kind of election. It has just had one of the latter. And the Beninese citizens who got used to the idea of voting for their leaders are left wondering whether the country has mealy taken a wrong turn or performed a complete one hundred eighty degree handbrake skid back in the direction of dictatorship. Benin's most recent parliamentary election was held on April twenty eighth the results which were announced last week looked at least to anyone who only read the headlines like a fumbling endorsement of the progressive union a coalition led by veteran politician, Bruno Musso and closely allied to president patriots talent the progressive union one fifty six percent of the vote comfortably but not overwhelmingly ahead of their rivals from the Republican block who won forty four percent on the face of it a splendid victory for pluralist democracy. The problem is that the vanquished Republican block are also closely allied to president Patrice tell on who not content with having money each way in this fashion over sorry process, which reduced the contest to a two-horse race may new electoral code was introduced a head of the elections the rules and requirements of which was so strict and expensive to meet that bias, Donna Shing, coincidence, only the two groupings favored by president on qualified. Nobody else was permitted to compete. The rationale for the new rules for what it may be worth was essentially that Benin was suffering from a surfeit of democracy that a small west African nation of some twelve million people had become bamboozled by proliferation of more than two hundred fifty political parties, even organized into various blocks alliances and coalitions this still left voters at Benin's previous parliamentary elections in two thousand fifteen choosing from a field of twenty. But at least they had a choice of which they generally availed themselves at the two thousand fifteen parliamentary election turnout was around sixty six percent about what it was when Benin elected president talent in two thousand and sixteen for this latest election barely one registered voter in for bothered. And indeed you kind of have to wonder why one in four did. It's a shame for all the obvious reasons but much more. So because one does not need a long memory to recall Benin seeming, something of a Pathfinder for democracy in west Africa. Domain through pity? What in nineteen Ninety-one president Matthew Carrico who had seized power in an old school data in nineteen seventy two became the first leader in the region to stand down after losing an election. He was re elected in nineteen ninety six and served. Another decade. So this looks like a straightforward power grab by president talent or those close to him but to extend some credit where do this would not be consistent with his previous behavior in two thousand seventeen he tried and failed to persuade the national assembly to restrict presidents to a single six-year term as recently as April President talented, mid the new electoral law was not a good look stating accurately that it bought discredit on Benin's democracy and on himself. If only president Telo knew someone who could perhaps do something about it, a politician occupying position of influence, for example. The news emerging from Benin in recent days has not been encouraging soldiers have been seen on the streets incidents of violence. Some fatal have been reported on and around election day, the internet was cut off and before it several journalists and opposition activists were arrested. Members of Benin's barely elected new national assembly a Jew to be sworn in next week, the incoming MP's may discover that the price you pay for lack of opposition is deducted in legitimacy. Nobody has ever thanked those who took vote away from them. Article twenty four around.

This is Bloomberg Markus. Thanks so much leeann now, let's bring in our guest this hour. Dominic Armstrong has just sat down here in the London studio. Ceo of the horatio's fund a very good morning to you. Greg warhead Dominic. I mentioned the J P Morgan story a little bit earlier J P Morgan saying that because of the feds change in tone, the business cycle might actually go on a little bit longer than previously thought twenty twenty might not be the year to think about a US recession. Let me just start by gauging your opinion on that. I find myself very much. I'm delighted to hear it backs up backs up our views that actually after I think year of the dog last year very much a dog days. People talk about how the dog was was was quite stressful in emerging markets, which where I'm looking. And having seen emerging markets price. So it's a very negatively on the back of the that the surgeon rates last year on the strengthening dollar the sentiment bow wave that created right across the rest of the world. When in fact, actually, I think I think there's a lot more subtle nuanced fine tuning within that that strategic fed thinking, and and as a result, I think just just too too much tinkering too aggressive move. I stabilizing that we're certainly not looking at anything in the next twenty four twenty four to thirty six months is is I think we're going to see steady steady steady move forward rather than this this shop. Boom bust. Been plan. So I very much in agreement with JT Morgan on that one Dominic. It seems like a bit similar to the effects of nicotine where you get Russian euphoria initially, then two hours later, kind of fades markets seem all happy. Now that the fed put is back at play. But you think back to what happened with the means spent potent ended in disaster. Are we going to talk about a mistake that was made on on this day? A couple of years from now. I think the the reality is three months from now, we might be talking a very different story if the data is eating them in a different direction. I think what is what is clear is that whilst there's a much stronger fundamental economic backbone and much of the rest of the world which can help support and lifting survive what whatever happens in the American economy. The answer is whilst it's stronger. It's not yet necessarily resistant to and the truth is if Trump looks at the market marketers his principal barometer of success. Then clearly majorly week commentary coming from around the world, we'll have a have an effect on his attitude, which we see in his daily commentary EM stocks. They sold in January by the most since March two thousand sixteen we saw currencies. Posting the biggest gain in a year. Will that continue from your perspective? I think the important thing to realize that a lot of that negative sentiment which had a very dramatic impact on prices last year. All that emerging markets. Need is for the negatives to go away. Rather than necessarily be replaced by strong positive. I mean, a neutral environment where you don't have a strengthening dollar where you don't have dollar tightening taking place allows investors in emerging market bonds, for example, simplex north of seven percent dollar income. I mean, we we seven and a half percent US dollar income on the raciest fun because we've got the positions that have been very severely depleted value. And now without the bad news all we need to do is harvest the coupons. For for a beginning. Of course, there's no such thing as a static or tally neutral market. But the interesting thing is I think emerging markets, generally. Yes, there's been a major resurgence and a major Bunce this year. But actually, what is interesting is. You don't need really strong tailwinds. You just need the headwinds to stop Dominic hold that thought we still have a lot to talk about stomach Armstrong.

"The very people. We claim to be helping we must lift these and other sanctions impacting Venezuela's poor and support dialogue between the opposition and government. So Bernie Sanders, and Omar how selene Trump not to interfere in our own hemisphere with with this, gene change. Here's Marco Rubio responding to this by the way, he was asked by Jake tapper to respond in this part isn't in the clip, but Jake tapper asked him to respond to to this Ilhan. Haunt Omar tweet, but he referred to Guido as the self proclaimed president, which just isn't true, right? They use a constitutional means to elect him president, and we have recognized that presidency. So here's Marco Rubio responding to this is not a US-backed anything. This is I didn't see any Americans in the street in Venezuela. When hundreds of thousands of not millions of Anna's Whelan's took to the streets on the twenty-third. This is one guy DOE and the national assembly which was lawfully elected under the constitution event is way. La, by the way, constitution put in place by Google, China's they follow the constitution that said the election in January was invalid the sorry. The the swearing in January was an invalid because the election that put Madero there was invalid when there's a vacancy in the presidency. The president of the national assembly which happens to be one becomes the interim president and in the next thirty or forty five days he has to call for new elections that was all their law. They followed the US simply supported the democratic institutions along with by the way, sixteen countries. In the region. This is not the US this is Honduras this Guatemala, Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, etc. Etc. So this is not a US sponsored anything. This is us supporting the people of Venezuela who want their constitution and democracy, followed. That's a fact so it's more Rubio's sixteen probably was when he was speaking. But it's more than that. Now, all the free nations are supporting this change in the regime, who's not supporting it along with Bernie Sanders. Ilhan Omar, the people not supporting the people who don't support it are Russia, China, Iran. Cuba, Turkey, Nicaragua and Hezbollah all the fascists everywhere are supporting Maduro. And that's the guy that Bernie Sanders wants us to keep our hands off of because God forbid, we should interfere anywhere. I mean, we haven't interfered anywhere. Actually, we're just basically supporting the Venezuelan people and their government and their constitution. Dick, Durbin democrat, obviously went down there, and he supports regime, change and. He was then attacked by row. Khanna another California Democrat who wrote with respect to Senator Durbin the US should not anoint the leader of the opposition in Venezuela. Again, we're not doing that. They did it during an internal polarized conflict. Let us support Urguay Mexico in the Vatican's efforts for negotiated settlement and incentives. That are making the hyperinflation worse. It has nothing to do with us. This has to do with their stupid, socialism guests who retweeted that tweet our old friend, Alexandria, occasional cortex. She re tweeted that so you've got all these people on the left, right? And and by the way, you know, I I don't know. I don't know what whether military action is wise, and how far we want to go into interfering with his John Bolton says he thinks the military are not backing Madero. But I think that's pretty complicated because it's almost certain that under Madero the military is committed atrocities that they don't want to be held responsible for if there is a change in government. So I'm not sure what? What side the military is going to be on. They'll probably want some kind of immunity in that could lead to to more corruption. It's a complicated situation. But but here's the thing. Here's the thing all of the left all these guys these clowns who have been made stars by the American media Bernie Sanders. AO see all these people that the American media supports. They are basically saying hands off Madero that is what they're saying. There's no way around this Walter Russell Mead who I touted him a couple times on this podcast. He is the new kind of foreign affairs writer for the Wall Street Journal. I think he's like the new Charles Krauthammer..

"The country President Nicolas Maduro has nonetheless clung to power by rigging an election and stripping the opposition controlled national assembly of its powers now, the conservative head of the national assembly one Guido has declared himself acting president drawing support from countries, including the United States and Brazil. And so now, there's a power struggle. David Luneau is Latin America editor for the Wall Street Journal, and he joins us now from Mexico City to talk about this. Hi, David KYW good to be here. So do either of these two men have a legitimate claim on power in Venezuela. Well, they both claim they had a legitimate. Claim nNcholas Maduro was the democratically elected president when he was first elected in two thousand thirteen but as the opposition points out, he has since broken with the constitution several ways, not least of which dissolving the national assembly and holding a rigged election of his own. So as of early January when he took the new oath of office for his second term, the the opposition and Venezuala feels that he is illegitimately in his place. And now calls him a usurper and what the Venezuelan constitution than dictates in. That case is that the national assembly can name an interim president for thirty days to call new elections. Of course, this is all up in the air because the defacto President Nicolas Maduro has the army on his side and the guys with guns as you guys well know count for a lot. So what is the situation on the ground there? I've been seeing some reports about questions about. What the level of unity is among the military is is there any significant likelihood that that this sort of rebellion is going to succeed or Madero holding onto power fairly effectively. Well, right now, my show is the odds on favourite because of the military. I think the best way to look at the Venezuelan military is as a criminal enterprise. This is a this is an army that is up to its neck in drug trafficking. That has allowed the Columbian communist guerrillas, the L N to have a safe haven in Venezuela. These are the guys that you may remember last week just set off a car bomb in Brazil in a Colombian police academy and killed nineteen young men, and you know, they run everything from PETA the state oil company to food imports. So the opportunities for the army to enrich themselves are are literally beyond belief. So a lot of these generals and a lot of these generals have been indicted and are under investigation by the US and others. So. For them, the exit means jail or or or some or being lynched in Venezuela. So they have their backs up against the wall. They they wanna stay in power, the rank and file soldiers, of course, are struggling to feed their families and struggling to make ends meet just like the majority of poor people are now in Venezuela. So the question is, you know, at one point do those lower ranked soldiers in some of the middle command try to do something against their superiors. The problem is always in these cases is one of coordination and first mover. How do you do that? When a lot of these units are infiltrated by Cuban intelligence, and by spies that will call you out. They've already snuffed out a bunch of incipient plots in the last year, she does the the breakdown of the situation in Venezuela. Tell us anything about the merits of socialism, the promise of Venezuela for an end appeared to be working more or less for a number of years was that basically you had this this oil wealth in the country, and it could be used to significantly improve the standards of. Living of ordinary people poor people in the country, but that has really not worked at all in the last few years. Well, I do think the crisis in Venezuela tells us about the risk of over overly relying on a single commodity, which is kind of econ one. But it is really important. The other thing I'd say is that, you know, Venezuela's crisis. Looks like it's emerged from a number of factors that can exist in any democracy, and that we might be afraid of here. And I'm actually not talking in this case about socialism, which is the topic. We could certainly talk about, but we're talking about basic political polarization distrust in institutions, you know, the desire for a strong, man. These are very worrying trends that could exist. No matter whether our country is tilting, right or left rich..

"The ruling was reversed a few days later, but the damage was done protests continued to grow and have left about one hundred dead and thousands injured so far despite the violence and public outcry Madero held vote in July to elect a new governing body called the national constituent assembly, which would have the power to rewrite Venezuela's constitution and essentially replaced the national assembly and leave virtually no opposition to Medeiros rule, and one of the other things that Madero has been very focused on is ensuring that the military is on his side. And the way that he does that is by offering them all sorts of economic perks. So as long as he's taking care of them. He's hoping that they will take care of him. And that's exactly what's going on. Right now, the military is very much on Madero side on this. So there are no winners in this story. So I think we're going to be one of the very few outlets that reports it as nuanced as it actually is. In real life. There are people that usually pick sides my doors the worst. And and this one Guadagno is the best thing is for Venezuela, etc. Or the river's? Okay. Neither side is. Right. Anna's? Absolutely right about Madeira. He is has dictatorial tendencies, and and unsurprisingly Vladimir Putin who also similar tricks with his elections and in seizing power in his own country. Also supports Maduro, by the way, he also has huge oil contracts with Venezuela. That's also why Putin supports them to one who does similar tricks with elections in Turkey supporting Madero on the other hand the right wing attempt to seize power here. I think it is fair to call it a coup. And and so it is illegitimate. And the United States is obviously coordinating with it. Because Donald Trump's offer of support came minutes. After the right wing declared that they were the real president in Venezuela. And so the fact that that came so closely afterwards shows obvious coordination. So if you're concerned that the US is helping to organize another coup in another Latin American country, I believe you are correct. So the US is very much involved in some of the opposition. That's taking place in Venezuela, and it all has to do with money and business interests. And we all know that this is something that the United States has done throughout the world for as long as we can remember. But that's not to say that Madero is a good guy. What we're seeing now is business interests capitalizing on Medeiros mistakes. And the fact that he is now pushing for a more authoritarian regime in Venezuela. They're using that as a way to infiltrate politics and essentially convinced younger Venezuelans to rise up and go against Madero fight against him. And push for regime change now with that said, though, another thing to keep in mind is that we have a president who is not privy to nuance. Who doesn't really understand the inner workings of what's going on in his very impressionable? And so he has said on multiple occasions that military intervention Venezuela's very much on the table. Here's one of the recent examples about. Some of the worst all all options are on April rating, a military often prevented win that considering anything. But all options are on the table.

Venezuela's not very far away and the people are suffering and they're dying. We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option. If that's so. Let's talk about again, both sides the elections. I believe are illegitimate. The the ones that Madero claims that he won he won elections back in two thousand thirteen a slim margin. One point six percent. He is far more unpopular these days than he was back, then, but okay, you say, hey, that's just a small indication. All right fair enough. Here's a incredibly large indication he banned some of his opponents from running. Well, that's pretty convenient. And then he imprisoned other political opponents also not allowing them to run because they are in prison that is not a legitimate election on the other hand, the leader of the national assembly, which is the legislature the one that you saw on.

"A speech impediment. Just a bit broke a tooth been replaced with a fake one for two months in a post put in but it's going to make for two months worth of interesting occasional lapses.

The broken country of Venezuela is rising up and I mean millions of people in the street yesterday led by the way by a leftist. This is not a right wing coup. He's a leftist. He's the president of the national assembly. But let me read the New York Times account President Nicolas Maduro Venezuela facing the most direct challenge to his. Power on Wednesday. What an opposition leader stood in the streets of the capital and declared himself the legitimate, president cheered on by thousands of supporters in a growing number of governments, including the Trump administration. Mr. Madero responded furiously by cutting diplomatic ties with the United States. He gave American diplomat seventy two hours to leave the country holding them out with the Orissa big on and accusing the Trump administration of plotting to overthrow him. The United States said it would ignore the deadline. Bravo, secretary of state pump hair, by the way, and President Trump and vice president Pence in every American diplomat who is standing there in the marine to his protecting them the fast moving developments convulse Missoula, a once prosperous country has been devastated by years of political repression, economic mismanagement and corruption. Let's also say socialism, the socialism that the democratic socialists of America are calling for Bernie Sanders. Our Glendale Kogyo Cortez would have the same effect. Socialism devastates economic productivity. They also appeared in Venezuela to get new momentum to the opposition leader one Gedo G, you go IDO the thirty five year old national assembly later who stepped onto the national stage. Just recently, Mr. Madera immediately dismissed Mr. guavas claim calling it part of the American led conspiracy to topple in demonstrating continued grip on power, he signed an order expelling. American diplomats on the balcony of the presidential palace. President venezuela. Mr. d'oro said we do not want to return the twentieth century of Gringo interventions and could it hot? Mr. Medeiros reaction came a few hours after Donald Trump in a White House statement, formerly announced his recognition of Mr. Guadagno as the interim leader of Venezuela. The people have been as away live courageously spoken against Madero and his regime and demanded freedom and the rule of law. The senior official briefing reporters in Washington, if Mr. Madero used force the United States can impose new sanctions and did not rule out the use of military force to stop him. It was the first time. It was not the first time that Trump administration and warned military options for Venezuela. Argentina Brazil, Canada Chile Colombia. Costa Rica, Paraguay, Peru, Ecuador am Allah and the organization of American states. Have also recognized Mr. Guadagno. Guido as a country's leader. While Venezuelan state media ignored Mr. Guido and his supporters. I mean, there are millions of people. There was scant evidence of large-scale repression about position supporters by the police and armed forces as happened in the past. Still the challenge Mr. Medeiros authority by Mr. Guido raise the possibility of violent confrontation. None occurred overnight. President of France Macron, however, dead. Join the other free nations in demanding that. Madero go. The American recognition Mr. Guido is far more than a symbolic measure. It presents a new complication from duro. The idea was avidly promoted by Senator Marco Rubio of Florida Republican who pushed the Trump administration takes such a set. Good for Marco the escalating showdown began with Mitchell guidos declaration to an enormous crowd of supporters in downtown square in the Venezuelan capital Caracas on Wednesday. As the demonstrators sang the national anthem, Mr. Guido announced today. January twenty third twenty nineteen. I swear to formally assume the powers of the national executive is president in charge of in his Waylon. He told his supporters to brace for a fight. We know this is not about just one person. We know it will have consequences and there were lots of consequences yesterday. Lots of rock-throwing lots of riot police not giving away, but no violence on a massive scale yet. Opposition leaders hope to force out Madero who was sworn in for a second term on January ten they believe they have a better chance of succeeding because his government is collapsing under the weight of an economic crisis. They're also helping the military just finally says enough of this even though the military has been purged again. And again, and again, the military could walk in and just take him out arrest him and sent him away. It could be like nineteen Ninety-one in the Berlin Wall or it could be like nineteen thousand nine hundred gentlemen square. We don't know. But we're following it. It's the biggest story of the world. That country should be rich that countries should be prosperous that country should have a middle class that is growing the country had freedom and should get it back should be like Colombia and Brazil its neighbors to the east of the west. And I wouldn't be surprised. If intervention were led by them, general McMaster, when he was national security advisor sat down with me for my MSNBC shown, I replayed it here on the Salem network show and ruled out military action by America's but didn't rule out military action by Brazil and Colombia, and I think Madero who just a killer. Right. Egypt like Castro. He's a killer. And why President Obama ever went to Cuba? I don't know it embolden them to do what they're doing that as Walea. Just remember President Obama's legacy includes Madero and the Cuban secret police in Venezuela. What if President Obama had done during the green movement in Iran in two thousand and nine what President Trump did yesterday, recognize an opposition leader denounce them. Of course, President Obama did nothing. President Trump is acting. On another front, President Trump his acting on the state of the union. He was talking to White House pool spray today in the afternoon as he left to go somewhere and said this about Nancy cut number one. We have more to do. They're going to go down further, but figure that for the first time, I say it because.
