"The Nobel Peace Prize it was decades later his name still now hopes debates over foreign policy landmarks long past this morning WTOP Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller with more about the controversial legacy that Kissinger leaves behind It's hard to get the influence of Henry Kissinger this is a person who literally dominated US foreign policy for decades he was under former president Nixon he was both the national security adviser and secretary state of so he wielded incredible power under the Nixon administration and this is why he was so divisive he was a man who believed in what they call real politic which is basically he figured a out way that every single country whatever was in the US's best interest that was what he was going to pursue whether it was trying to bring about some type of peaceful resolution to things in the Middle East it whether was opening up China whether it was detente with Russia and then most infamously in Vietnam that where the biggest division came again it is hard to describe how divisive of a figure he was during the 1970s because during the Vietnam War of course there's a huge outcry and protest about what was happening with the war in Vietnam and many blamed Kissinger for expanding the war and infamously the secret bombing in Cambodia that came out in 1969 that was something that really injured Kissinger's reputation early on but then he kind of moved past that he eventually won the Nobel Peace Prize ironically for his work in Vietnam and then eventually he came to a get lot of respect under the Nixon administration for what he did with China and Russia although interestingly enough Ronald Reagan was one of his critics because he thought he was too soft on Russia what was it about Kissinger's policies that would cause for example a group of students to stand up in an assembly like that and interrupt diplomat speech I think that's really remarkable memory I think it's because he was so direct with what he wanted to do he would stop at nothing if he felt that the policy was the right one for the United States and that a included lot of other things besides Vietnam many people blamed him for doing things that were not so on the open up in Latin America including in Chile and Argentina and there was a really fierce opposition to what many thought was imperialistic aims of the United States at that time but Kissinger came out of a history where he came out of Germany his parents dealt with the whole Nazi situation and he just felt that he had to be somebody who was working on behalf of good versus evil and he looked at it in a different way perhaps more black and white that many other people do and I think that's got why he such a strong reaction particularly from young people in the 70s and as you mentioned even into the 80s and then after that I think over the last few decades as you mentioned he was an advisor to many presidents over the years and I think some of the criticism softened a bit just maybe because he was out of the public limelight but certainly to this day people still have very strong opinions both ways one way positive one -way negative of Henry Kissinger WTOP Capitol Hill correspondent Mitchell Miller fifth look at the top stories we're following for you this early Thursday morning on WTOP breaking this morning Israel and Hamas now have agreed at the last minute to extend their ceasefire the temporary ceasefire in Gaza Strip for at least an additional day Rosalind Carter legendary former first lady was laid to rest formally in Plains Georgia this week at recapping one of the most influential
Fresh update on "nobel peace prize" discussed on Evening News with Art Sanders
"This past week, a major death in the world of politics. Henry Kissinger, national security advisor and Secretary of State to multiple presidents, most notably Nixon and Ford, died at the age of 100. Joining me now is Timothy Bello from the Washington Post, who has written about his life and legacy. And if there's anything you can say about Henry Kissinger, it's that he was controversial. To say it is actually controversial is probably understatement. No secretary of state in this country's history has wielded more power or influence than Henry Kissinger did for almost a decade. And the impact of his choices have been felt in this country for an extended period of time. To say like countries Vietnam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Chile. It just goes on and on and on in terms of the decisions from his foreign policy and the thousands of people who had died as a result of that. It really makes for a tough legacy and should give historians a real challenge in terms of how we frame the life and accomplishments and very the real criticisms surrounding Henry Kissinger. Let's go back a little further. How was it said that Henry Kissinger was able to build up his power and influence within these multiple administrations? He had a strong background. He had this strong personal story that is being someone family whose had escaped Nazi Germany. He studied at the best schools. He had the best mentors, but came it time for him to take on his first role in the Nixon administration. It was for president a who he actually hated. He hated Nixon during the actual campaign season, but when Nixon extended that opportunity to him. He was fully on board because he knew he could wield the most was elected, he had the most possible influence both as national security advisor and then as Secretary of State. It's really an incredible rise and his history, his own personal story. Everybody talks about how he was able to adapt to any given conversation, any given person, any given background. It didn't matter if he was talking about court policy or if it was someone he wanted to date. He just had this gift of being able to connect to people on a very personal level. a And lot of the times, that gift he had was not put towards the best ways, put a key to court policy. On a broader note, you could really kind of describe his philosophy as real politic in the sense that it was more practical than ideological. Is that a fair assessment? Totally. I mean, you had someone who always prioritized this idea of maybe Maybe human sacrificing lives and human well -being in a process. And that's something that he was praised for for an extended period of time, but shortly after he'd left, well, a lot of people, including conservatives, including Ronald Reagan, had said what he had done was extremely are thankful to American foreign policy. And I think as history tests got on and we have seen how Kissinger defended himself for the rest of his life. After that, I think understood that other things he did were extremely unpopular, had put a ton of lives at risk and had either main people or killed people. So it really is something that I think a lot of people have come to grips with and have called out. But a lot of people have also celebrated too. You take a look at some of those foreign policy positions. I mean, advocating for carpet bombing in the Vietnam War and Cambodia, in fighting clandestine warfare there. Then he had him advocating for, I wouldn't say necessarily advocating for, but not supporting a democratically elected government in Chile that led to a coup. military Is it fair to say he has a lot of blood on his hands as a result? A hundred percent. It's totally fair and you have seen the reactions both online, in print, on TV. It's really hard to talk about Henry Kissinger now, just because I do think we're a lot more educated about what happened during that period of time. And he's got his fingerprints lot of on a really terrible events. It is fair to say that. Also fair to understand that this man had power and fame and wealth that we have not seen from any secretary of state or anyone dealing in foreign policy in this country's history. So you talk about his influence, whether it's secretary of state or national security advisor, but you go back to Harry Truman. The buck stops here with the president. He's the one that really kind of directs foreign policy, but under Nixon actually, and then somewhat under Ford, it was really Henry Kissinger and not so much the Oval Office that was running the show. Yes. What happened in Vietnam, we do have Henry Kissinger accepting a Nobel Peace Prize for a peace fire there that was never durable. And that's probably the most controversial Nobel Peace Prize in that history. awards So as we kind of wrap up here, what is his legacy on foreign policy? How did he change America's standing in the world and how the United States deals with foreign countries? It's got to be damaging. It's got to be someone who made America in terms of foreign policy into a bully in a lot of ways. That kind of staying at that kind of impact, it does last for an extended period time. of Now, if people still believe that over a half century later, I'm not 100 % sure on that. But I do know is that how people see America and how it deals with foreign policy. There is no other name that comes to mind first than Henry Kissinger. That is something that this country, this government, these officials will always have to grapple with. That's a guy, in terms of foreign policy, who was both extremely successful and detrimental. Alright, Timothy, Bella with the Washington Post. Thank you so much your time and insight. Thank you so much, Jeff. Coming up next, the race for the White House starts to get interesting as a Republican mega donor picks his preferred candidate and it's not Donald Trump. When the Northwest politic cast continues after this. Heavy rain, leaves, tree

"Fled Nazi Germany for the United States Kissinger returned as a US Army private to serve in the Battle of the Bulge after the war Kissinger became Dr. Kissinger when he earned a PhD in political science and then joined the Harvard faculty when Richard Nixon became president in 1969 he appointed Henry Kissinger as his national security advisor and used him to open a window to China that made the current economic miracle possible to most people in 1968 -69 it seemed inconceivable that the US could have a relationship with such an extreme zealous regime as Mao Zedong's remember the Cultural Revolution was in full space and most people thought the regime was just nuts so the very idea of to trying establish a relationship was a minority pursuit Kissinger also negotiate a peace treaty between Israel and Egypt and a ceasefire with Syria that brought calm to a region that had been upended by wars since the end of World War II Kissinger also played the lead role in negotiating the end to the United States involvement in the conflict in Vietnam which earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in Dr. 1973 Kissinger's role in the world was not without controversy he was accused of pursuing an illegal military offensive in Laos and Cambodia as well as playing a role in coups in Chile and Argentina that resulted in repressive regimes this is the thing that critics of Henry Kissinger always have struggled with they've been very bad at setting the crimes of the panacea in the context of the Cold War when you see it in the context of the Cold War you Realize that the war crimes, the crimes against humanity being perpetrated by communist regimes were a much larger scale than those that were perpetrated by regimes of the rise and this is the really important thing one has to bear in mind. Henry Kissinger said even before he went into government that that foreign policy was very often a choice between evils and the job was to try to choose the lesser evil. Every president since Nixon turned to Henry Kissinger for advice on foreign policy. He was the author of influential books from his first on Europe in the wake of Napoleon published in 1957 up to leadership six studies in world strategies published last year. Just last month Henry Kissinger appeared to give a speech at the annual Al Smith dinner in New York. At the that end of speech he said quote a great leader is the giver and protector of our hopes.

The world obesity federation predicts that 51% of the world's population will be obese or overweight within the next 12 years. Rates of obesity arising particularly quickly among children and at lower income countries. Those are the days headlines, back to Georgina. Thanks, Emma. The top human rights advocate in Belarus, who was one of the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize winners, has been sentenced to ten years in prison alongside three other figures of the human rights center he founded. Phrenic via chalker, a journalist from Belarus and a senior adviser to Belarusian democratic movement leader Sviatlana tushish karnovsky joins me now. Franak many thanks for coming on the show. Alec bielski and his colleagues were arrested in 2021. What were the charges? Well, first they were accused of finance and the extremist activities and organizing the protests, then they were changed to something like tax evasion. And finally, I don't remember which set of acquisitions they had, but it doesn't matter really. They were just they were just sentenced for what they were doing. They were helping political prisoners. They were documenting atrocities of Lukashenko in Belarus, but also in Ukraine. And they were helping people to flee the country when they were faced persecution. And in general, at least Velazquez, the personal enemy of Lukashenko, he hates him. And for Lukashenko, the last became even bigger enemy after he received the Nobel Peace Prize. And can you show us a little bit more about the human rights center that he set up? So in 19 94, 30 years ago Lukashenko came to power and the immediately millions of people went to streets to protest the gates there was a patient of power because Lukashenko dismissed the parliament. He dismissed them. Alternative organizations. And initiatives. And that is Velazquez started to help all those repressed. He started to held their families as well. And the center was called to the spreading. It's like the sprint will come. The good day will come after the bad day. And all these years he was doing the same stuff, he was advocating for beloved in the international arena. He was managing thousands of volunteers, and he was always picking out for dilution independence. This is also something we often forget. But that's not just human rights defender. He's the pro independence activist. He was always saying that Russia is the biggest threat to the Russian dependence. And even from prison he reminds us about that. No, he's been sent to prison for ten years. Do you think that this harsh sentence is connected to Russia's war in Ukraine, which is obviously, as we know, supported by the Belarus leader Alexander Lukashenko. Of course, it's connected, but you know, for Belarus, the war has started not invented 22, but in 2020, and when Lukashenko lost elections supplements and received 70% of votes, results were falsified and Lukashenko says the power and he started mass repressions. I content understand how it happened that suddenly Belarus fell down in the medieval times in the Stalin era. Right now 1520 people every day are being detained tortured raped. Many people were killed in prisons. And it's happening every day. And when two or three years ago, activists were sentenced to 15 days, 25 days. Now it's 15 years, 20 years, 25 years, even death penalty right now can be used against everyone who is expressing the discontent about location constitution. It's just horrible. It's a humanitarian disaster. Lukashenko met with the Chinese president Xi Jinping on Wednesday together they called for a ceasefire and negotiations to bring about a political settlement to the war in Ukraine. How serious is Lukashenko about this? I mean, do you think that he's readying his country to join Russia's invasion? And if so, would that be supported by the people of Belarus? Is already part of the war. Lukashenko supports pollution since the very beginning and he hoped that the war will be short and Lukashenko will be the Victor. It didn't happen right now he's trying somehow to balance, but he's still accomplished. He is a criminal. He must be on the tribunal along with Putin. China's visit. It's not something extraordinary because it was planned. It was planned several years ago. There was no indie promise given to Lukashenko. Of course, for location, it's a great opportunity to say a local big boss, foreign leaders are mutant me, not just Russian governors. And but in fact, I don't think China will give money to Lukashenko, what China can try. They can use Belarus to deliver to supply Russia with weapons. This would be dangerous development if it happens, and we should close the monitor that. But to assume that Lukashenko and China's leadership discuss the war and the peace plan, it's crazy. And finally, franak, with one of the top pro democracy leaders in prison, how likely is there to be mass opposition to a war or indeed continuing protests against Lukashenko? The protests continues every day. We have the partisan groups more than 200,000 people during the parties and organizations and they do nonviolent, but still very active and very brave actions of sabotage, like last week, they blowed up the Russian spy plane in Minsk and all they stopped the Russian trains. They collect state institutions and leaked data about Russian army and about loopers and majority of Belarusians sympathize partisans and the protesters. People don't want Belarus to join the war. And this is why Lukashenko increased repression because he understand how fragile he is. Frank, thank you very much indeed. That's phrenic via chalker. You're listening to the briefing on monocle 24.
Lord Conrad Black Unpacks Jimmy Carter's Presidential Legacy
"Back with our regular guests, one of your favorite lord Conrad black a man who has written a veritable library of books, including works on FDR on Nixon on president Trump. As such, lord black, let me ask you, we have the news of just the last day or so that president Carter, age 98, I believe, has been admitted to hospice. He may not be long for this world as a presidential historian. How will the historians of the future look to his presidency? Look, I would always, I would almost like to be as positive, especially with a man who is now clearly in the extreme December of his days. And I think on the positive side, he did produce the Camp David agreement for which I thought he deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for that. I'm glad he got the Nobel Prize for peace eventually, but I thought he deserved it then. In 1978. But I think he I think he suffered from a form of indecision that compromised his. Effectiveness as a leader of the country. He tended this tendency to change direction. And we were going to deploy the neutron weapon and in Western Europe and then it was all agreed to. And then he changed his mind. And he was sending a strong naval squadron into the Indian Ocean and then it turned a 180°. We had an irrational fear of communism, and then after Afghanistan, he had learned a great deal, but communism. These are quotes. And when the energy crisis came upon us, he spoke of a malaise and appeared wearing a cardigan on television and advising people to turn the thermostats down. And he didn't I think he was a good man and a very intelligent man into this very slight degree I know. I know I'm a very interesting man and of course like all politicians are quite a charming person. But as a leader, I think he was not perceived as a strong leader and he was not particularly imaginative. He was studious and diligent and did his best and had his moments and was a good man. But I'm afraid he will not rank as an outstanding president. But

majority share or control of it And as I said it is a passion project So I really didn't want to give anything away There may be a time when we do look at people like you in the door Yes we have a conversations and there will be a point where we want to really upscale and increase And I think at that point investment would really help us 'cause it's interesting in the marketplace You know it's a crowded marketplace But when you can create a brand that somehow has some interesting distinction to it and I think this one is safe to say it does also taste good You can really move ahead What's

Like some nursing home issues? Yeah. They had some issues dealing with nursing homes. And, you know, basically killing people. No big deal, And we should point out she wrote a very lovely letter with her own governor here saying that if you went to Christmas dinner you were gonna kill Grandma. That's right. And she did a little video there. Yes, there. I'm not taking away that you know her and Cuomo probably pals, but she is best friends with our governor, too. Yes. And so you can imagine my surprise when I read yesterday that she is going to be receiving a profile in Courage Award from the JFK Library Foundation for her actions during the crisis, so Huh? This is the kind of stuff that makes me feel like I'm going crazy. So let me a casket. This probably stupid question, but I'm going to ask it. But what's the name of the award profiles and courage, violent current. So I think like when I think of profile in courage, I think of someone who did something. Oh, I don't know. Courageous, right? Like you hopped into a burning building to save a small child. Or, you know you risked your life on the battlefield or you're a police officer who those air yelled at by a black woman perfect and called a murderer. These are all things that I would not Think an elected official who spends other people's money and deprives them of their liberties and freedoms. Is a profile in courage Well, and that's what makes it so ridiculous there. Apparently there are seven people that are getting this award and she is one of them. I don't It's incredible to me that this is even a thing. But this is this is part of the national gas lighting is happening to all of us. It's like when stuff like this happens. It's like when Obama gets the Nobel Peace Prize, right? I mean, you hear this, and you're just like, wait Normal. People know that this is crazy, right? Like and that's what makes me feel like I'm losing my mind a little bit because you read these things. And you you would hope that most people would recognize this is being utterly ASA nine. But then it continues to happen. Stuff like this continues to happen, and that's when I feel like I'm going mental like I what is even happening that this woman who deserved and warranted tons of criticism for how she has acted during this crisis, and by the way, her state is doing awful right now, with respect to covet, and yet She's chosen as a profile in courage. Remember him? Chris? The movie Christmas story when he gets the leg lamp and he goes, it's a major award. Yes, that's like what this is. I mean, it's just It's just complete bull crap, and nobody cares. Look good. If you judge yourself based on how many awards you get, you know, whatever. But this woman is hoping that has some prestige to who? Well, I mean, like people, you know, it's like a big deal award. It's not just like what so so you know who she is?

Anti-Asian Hate Crimes: Influencers, Activists Are Taking a Stand
"Month in honor of women's history month where featuring conversations with women and nonbinary leaders who are working to address the issues in their communities this week. We're speaking with amanda win. Amanda is the ceo and founder of rise a millennial driven social change incubator for citizen lawmaking because of her work passing legislation for sexual assault survivors. She was nominated for two thousand nine hundred nine nobel peace prize more recently amended has been working to mobilize a nationwide response to the surging attacks on asian americans. Since the beginning of the pandemic asian americans across the country have reported being targeted in three thousand hate incidents according to nypd data anti asian american hate crimes are up nineteen hundred percent in the last year and just weeks ago and eighty four year old. Thai american man was murdered in san francisco. A ninety one year old man was shoved to the ground and oakland's chinatown a sixty four year. Old vietnamese woman was assaulted in san jose and a filipino. American men was slashed in the face on a subway in new york city these assaults are happening during a pandemic where asian americans have disproportionately lost their jobs or had their businesses boycotted response to the recent attacks and the relative silence of bean stream media. Amanda posted a now viral video on instagram naming. The attacks and calling for media attention and public action. Amanda is here today to talk about this wave of violence. And what she's doing about it. Amanda thank you so much for joining us today. You for having me. I want to start with this viral video that you posted on february fifth. What led you to make that video saw. These videos of people being horrifically attacked in my community. I didn't see the mainstream media covering adding see anyone else talking about it. And so i thought to myself if no one's going to talk about it i'm going to use my voice and i'm gonna use my platform and ask people to help me get the word out and over night. Millions of people responded to it so three million people viewed it overnight and then in the following eleven point four million posts went up on tiktok response to it the next business day. The white house press corps asked the president if he has seen the video. Were you surprised by the reaction or were you like. No this makes total sense because nobody else is talking about this. I honestly was really surprised because this isn't the first time i talked about this issue before about race. General and every time that i had posted about race i have lost followers so when i turn on my camera that day to report that video i thought that i was going to lose more followers and i told myself you know it doesn't matter i am going to do this because it's the right thing to do and because people are literally dying to be heard right now. I want to talk to the larger race dynamics of these attacks but actually i wanted to ask why these attacks may be personal to you. You identify as asian american and have talked about your family's immigration story. And i was wondering if you might share some of that story and tell us a little bit about how it is affected your experience of these attacks and your response to them. Yeah of course. I'm so glad you asked that question because so many of these interviews. I've been doing of just been focused on the world. Terrible parts of it. I'm so proud to be hyphenated america and my experience it's been asian-american be means merican and my parents are from vietnam. They went into death to seek life and to reach these shores where they thought that they would find freedom in freedom for us has not only been you know the freedom to exist that persecution it also is the rest of the things that is afforded to us constitution including the right to petition the government and for me at least it's not only a privilege but our responsibility to keep pushing our country to be a more perfect union for me growing up as an asian american. I grew up in corona california. Where darn actually many asian-americans. I remember being one of the very few in elementary school middle school and even still in high school and comes with experience when you are really a minority and you look around and no one looks like you eat the same food that you do and then you grow up and then you see that all the things that you were made fun of for all of us and become really trendy when the communities appropriate at so. That's part of the immigrant. Unfortunate part of the asian american experience. Of course there's this perpetual foreigner stereotype. I think every single asian american has been asked the question. Where you from no really. Where are you from. And while that is and could sound like an innocent question at the heart of it at the root of a is idea that you don't belong and when you keep insinuating perpetuating this idea of uttering a whole group of people what you have are consequences that have resulted in. Lives being lost. Did you experience or did your family experience racism directly in the community or was it this. Pervasive or in addition is pervasive feeling around belonging. I mean it certainly is anxiety about being killed on the street. These attacks have happened. Have been two people doing everyday. Things like walking on the street or going grocery shopping. They one of the things that really stuck with me. In a scarring way was of twenty twenty. A man stabbed family in that stabbing. He stabbed two year old and a six year old because he thought that they were chinese burmese. And he on the record said that he thought they were spreading cova. So you know there's been a threat of people saying well. How do you know if these are really hate crimes. not only. are these con camera. They're also being fully admitted to buy the perpetrators

"Was the scientific research study that came out and found that because of the Wuhan Red death loosed on the planet by communist China who lied about it, and then the World Health Organization as their shells lied about it to the world as well. They've been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize as a result, because the Nobel Peace Prize is a joke. But it turns out that this great scientific study discovered that because of the woman red death, a great lack of economic activity of fewer cars on the road, fewer factories working and stuff and the air on the planet Earth as a result of the Wuhan is much cleaner in terms of particulate pollutants in particular. You know, as opposed to Seo, too. And because of the reduction in particulate pollutants, the sunlight is getting through to the planet Earth much more than it then it did prior to the Wuhan red death. And so the planet is warming at an accelerated rate because of cleaner air. Okay? That's got to be one of the great stories of the year. I'm telling you, that's great stuff that has the planet is warming at an accelerated rate because of cleaner air, and we had Christiane Amanpour and others in the media celebrating The cleaner air, and they're like, well, 11 silver lining, Christiane Amanpour said. When it comes to the Wuhan Red death is that there are fewer pollutants being put into the air. And they applauded that fewer pollutants. And now a study comes out, declaring that because of the reduced amount of pollutant being put in the air pollutants being put in the air the sunlight is getting through. Because it was, as Michael Percy said yesterday. It's like we had tinted windows and somebody took a razor blade. And they're scraping the tinted windows off of the planet Earth.

She's a member of Congress, and she made yet another business a feature length motion picture about herself the other day and posted it online, where she became a victim over and over and over again. They're the most exalted status in the Democrat Party. Is that a victim, of course, and she can claim victimhood on a number of levels, and she she proceeded to do that the other day. Turns out she was talking about what a frightening time she had. On Capitol Hill. When those terrible people had a riot, you know shit. All the other riots were fine. Hundreds and hundreds of riots were just fine in New York and her district in Washington, where she apparently has a job of some kind of lots of riots. The attacks on the White House that went on for days and days, the first family and the president had to be evacuated. Historic ST John's church set on fire. None of that affected her, however, But it turns out she this this hysterical apple Plec tick victim video that she put out where she had to go into a white person's like you know, she's whiter than I am and she had to go into a white person's office on Jan is a white person. She's a dedicated racist as well. That's a part of the program with the Democrats. But it turns out that this all this hole was so frightening than a bolt of lightning very, very frightening. She was so frightened. It turns out she was in one of the House of Representatives office buildings, which Tiger Woods couldn't drive a golf ball to from the entrance to the Capitol building itself.

Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup
"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.

Myanmar's Suu Kyi detained again, without her old support
"Very sad news out of me on mars. Some people call it. Burma long story there. Were it's going to go with myanmar for the purposes of this show but over the weekend the military staged a coup They surrounded myanmar's parliament building and arrested top civilian leaders like onto chee. The commander in chief of burma's military is now defacto in charge. The military has declared a year long state of emergency for those who don't know on succi is a political leader a nobel peace prize winner who spent decades under house arrest because of the military. She's revered and also controversial. Figure so ben we can start this story in a lot of places what you like. Twenty seven two thousand fifteen nineteen sixty two nineteen forty eight but i think for now maybe we just go back to november of last year. That was when aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party trounced the military's proxy party the union solidarity and development party in these parliamentary elections. I think her party won. Like seventy or eighty percent of the vote in this threatened the military's control of the country which they had a lot of because of how your mars constitution is set up in so the military quickly declared that this election was fraudulent. There was a lot of chatter and concern and speculation about a potential coup. It's sort of increased ever since november when that election occurred I should know that election observers international observers don't believe there was fraud but this coup finally occurred over the weekend on the day that the parliament was supposed to convenient for its first session and not coincidentally Also means that mars top general ghosts from this lame duck figure who is gonna retire in june to a defacto dictator. So ben what. What else do you think people need to know about what happened and like despite you know all these concerns into predictions that had been building over time we surprised that the military ultimately went through in just seized power in a very classic old school military coup this weekend. Well i think first and foremost it's a tragedy for the people of myanmar. I think what people need to understand. Is that the competition between aung. San suu kyi in the military has never been resolved and it goes back. Many decades in the military's been in charge for most of the en marche history as an independent country on. She went back to the country and won a landslide democratic election. One thousand nine hundred and the milton validated and through in prison and put under house arrest is essentially and it wasn't until two thousand eleven that she was able to re enter politics and there was this moment in two thousand fifteen when her party. The ldp won a landslide election. But that didn't mean that she had the power she became what's called the state councillor because the constitution expressly prohibited her from becoming president. There was a provision in the constitution written into the constitution. That said if you had foreign born children you could not become president and was ridden with her in mind. The military under the constitution prescribed itself a twenty five percent bloc in the parliament which was enough to prevent them from allowing the constitution to be amended. So you can see what was going on here. The military was trying to wrest power right and and keep its economic interest by the way too because they're corrupt the enrich themselves all their power. All their money could be a risk if onkelinx and the nfl could reform the constitution and so since she won that election in two thousand fifteen her five-year term the five-year. Parliamentary term was very tense because she wanted to reform the constitution. The military obviously didn't want her to do that. You have but we talked about a lot. The ethnic cleansing of the hindu got a lot of attention where she seemed to not want to challenge the military in part. Because she didn't want what just happened to happen you know. She thought that she might be able to co op. Some of the military to make a deal with them to show them perhaps said she was in his threatening as they might have thought but this question was unresolved and she had a very negative relationship. But just a rivalry with this commander in chief. Minhang lung The two of them did not like each other did not get along. I met when i met with her. But when i was still government. She would complain about him that he he wanted to do something like this. She spoke about fears of a coup. So this has been lurking in the backdrop despite kind of the partial democratic opening. It's taken place in the
Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?
"United kicked off the year with an attempted coup and myanmar kicked off this month with a successful on me and mas military has seized power in a coup against the democratically elected government. There me and mars military moved in in myanmar's capital. The bridge to parliament is blocked by police. And the roads are lined with military and move the country's elected leader and her cabinet out somewhere behind the guns aung san suu. She is once more prisoner of the generals but even though the military swept a democratically elected leader out of power this isn't quite a textbook takeover even before this hour coup happened. The military was really with sharing their power with a civilian government. Dr van trend study social movements in myanmar. So we asked him to explain. Why a military that already had plenty of power in myanmar decided to take all during the general election that happens in november. Two thousand twenty. The result was a landslide for the ruling party of that time. Which was the national league of democracy. The first official results trickling men from mass general elections giving three parliamentary seats to suit. She's national league for democracy even before the final count is in the potty says it's confident of a landslide win however the military claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and that there were millions of ballots that were missing and they requested the Government led by the national league of democracy an auditor to investigate these claims of voter fraud. And what's also important to note is that there is the national local election observers who've seen the entire process from the voter lists to the election and they said that the election in street and fifth they have had talks and meetings with that the governments in the preceding days however those talks and discussions have not led to any kind of agreements between the two sides and since they failed to reach an any kind of agreement is very likely that there was a reason why they have decided to go forward with the crew right before a new parliament. We're supposed to convene. How did this get to the point of a coup. I mean i. I know the military in myanmar had been a strong presence already. Even you know throughout the leadership of unsung cheap but were there warnings there might be a coup so the relationship between the energy party and the military has always been a complicated one back in two thousand ten when they decided to carry out a political liberalization. They didn't want to have all of the political power of the military to be stripped away. Even before voters cast. The result is ensured. Twenty five percent of saints will go to the military alliances with the current regime have been made to ensure political survival in more than forty percent of seats. The only content as a candidates linked to the current regime or does not regarded as a fridge with the and government since two thousand fifteen They have been trying to tread very delicately in terms of how they deal with the the the military they try not to confront with military on various policy issues including the rowing crisis fall. There's an extraordinary scene playing out. On the world stage this morning nobel peace prize winner on san succi defending her country of myanmar against genocide charges in the international court of justice. She's also standing up for the say military. They kept her under house arrest for years. However you know like in the past year s We got closer to the election. In two thousand twenty the on sense which he led government and the different and the mp's have also tried to propose these amendments to the constitutions to give a very very obvious example twenty five percent of our percents of not elected and we believe that for democracy to behold complete all the representatives must be elected and that would basically strip away a lot of these different powers and controls of the military and wish strip away. You know quite a few of his decision making power. That is something that the military also find to be. Quite worrying doesn't mean it wasn't really surprised coup. I was It is always a surprise. Of course when you look back you can see various factors right. That could help explain why the military decided to take over power to to to conduct this military coup at this moment but before it happened everybody always had hope that people in myanmar or at least a majority of people in myanmar will still be able to continue enjoying their rights and their freedoms

No again. How you doing? I'm gonna listen. I think I think there's like a big elephant in the room that nobody's really talking about here. This should become and year or Argument when I believe that Really needs to happen here is we need to reform Of the police. I think the police have a very difficult job. But I've seen myself gross misconduct by police officers. We can watch it any day of the week on the various video channels. Sure you can read about it in all the different court journals and I think the problem is the rules of engagement and their training they get from the Academy's is woefully inadequate and in order to fix that problem. You can't defund them, You actually have to increase the funding. But you have to demand A reform in their training. You have to demand absolute discipline in absolute responsibility when you have to force them. Conduct themselves within the law, which I think many times they do not so we should not be fund the police. We should spend more money on them. But we need to retrain them. We need to get them up to speed on their interactions with the American people and the rights. Gary. So abilities everyone has so Gary a couple of things. One is I would disagree with you. I believe that most Police officers. The vast majority of police officers do the right thing. Under incredibly difficult circumstances. Would agree with you. Do you know that? I I have spoken. I can't tell you how many police officers over the years they will all tell you the same thing, which is we would love more training. We appreciate more training. We have no problem with more training. They appreciate that. So, Gary, you're in line with most police officers that I know. Is that if there's some sort of training that they want to have then absolutely because they want to my opinion, in their opinion to the ones that I've spoken to Protect and to serve. That's what they want to do. Gary Appreciate the call Gala is in Weatherford on WB Ape. Hey, Gail. Ago headline five. Harry is I'm good. On my prayers to Rick. Yes, absolutely. Had read recently short statement that the black lives matters. Was being nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. True My word. I thought it was a false name. And we just be honest. The Nobel Peace Prize is nothing. I mean, Obama got it before he even went into office that the Nobel Peace Prize is just dumb. You know, I mean, yeah, I I think I think and Bill you may have to fact check me on this. I believe that they nominated Trump as they should, by the way for the peace deals that he engaged with and facilitated in the Middle East between Israel and United Arab Emirates and Bahrain and some of these other places, so I believe that Trump deservedly was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. But black lives matter. I mean, they're literally destroying cities across America. How are they eligible for Nobel Peace Prize? This What I mean gave me when I say that black lives matter, And we could talk about the difference between the sentiment of black lives matter and black lives matter Incorporated. Be because there is a difference, but bottom line is they should not be nominated for a Nobel Peace prize, and they're just making themselves out to be a joke, in my opinion that the folks at the Nobel Peace Prize Well, I am by far one of the ones that's not racist. I know there are people out there. Daughter in law who is half black. I have a daughter in law that his half Hispanic And both of my boys love him dearly. I have mixed race grandchildren. But in black lives matter, and when did what ceased to be a color. And like a good book, says red and yellow, black and white. That's the colors. We don't I grew up, not seeing color. Yeah, well, listen, So so So did I. I mean, when, when I was growing up. It wasn't until I became older that I realized that people have different colors had issues with each other. Now, I I still and people always look at me like I'm lying. But people will always say Whenever I say I don't see color. I see character because to me character is far more important than color. Unfortunately, there's a lot of folks that don't sign on with that sentiment. Gala. I very much appreciate you being with us. Yes, indeed. President Trump and Jared Kushner nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the phone number is 800 to 80 WBF P will return next. It's.

But that train keeps their old alone now the sand and never look upon situation. Michael Brandon Keohane News radio Happy Monday. Everybody you I think the Nobel Peace Prize It's pretty much just lost whatever Luster it might have had It kind of started when Barack Obama if you remember back in 2008. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize before he had even taken office. Just the mere fact of his being elected president. Method. I guess it was gonna be peace in the world when it was at that moment that I realized The people live. We'll Norway was crazy, absolutely crazy. Again. I think the Nobel Peace Prize has proven itself to be absolutely worthless. Now. I don't think there's any doubt that plenty of there plenty of her feelings in Portland today. Because the anti V thug's figured out they've been snubbed once again by the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. Who got it? Their fellow thugs over black lives matter have been nominated for the prestigious award. Which only adds insult to injury. Handy. No, the The absolute fearless journalist, Although I would say fearless except he's he's had to leave the country temporarily because of threats against his life has become so serious. That he's escaped Australia or somewhere for a little while. And teeth and black lives matter has just promised to me they've already given him a brain injury. They promised to just go ahead and kill him. Yeah. So for that you get nominated for a peace prize. Yeah, that's for the rest of us sitting around just watching listening, listening. Donald Trump's been nominated, too, but I don't think Donald Trump Just recently took over the Red Lion Hotel or motel or whether which wonderful when it is in Portland. I mean, actually took over took over the Red Lion. Cop finally. I don't want cops even let him take it over. And then the cops finally got anti from black lives matter. They finally went in and started dragging him out and arresting them. Why don't know about the rest of us. I'm kind of wondering how the Nobel Committee would You could like CNN and the rest of the mainstream media. Just ignore all the violence done by these who looms and all the destruction they've left in their wake. Yeah. Are those really mostly peaceful infernos that you see in the background from those photographs. Member Kenosha fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting As the Guardian newspaper uncritically reports. In his nomination papers, Norwegian member of Parliament Peter I'd said the movement had forced countries outside the United States to grapple with racism within their own societies, he said. Quote. I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America but also in Europe in Asia is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality. Black lives matter, he says, has become a very important worldwide movement to fight racial injustice. They've had a tremendous achievement in raising global awareness and consciousness about racial Racial injustice. Yeah. If you're paying the intention You know that the roots of the black lives matter. Movement are marks is Yeah, I don't say that with any hyperbole. That's by their own admission. Yeah, they've gone out and they've scrub their Marxist heritage from their website. But that doesn't make it any less. So they just know that. Oh, we started looking at the website and, uh oh. We noticed that you're actually marks is and what you're pushing is Marxism. And then we see what happens on the ground. And when we see what happens on the ground, we see But CNN calls mostly peaceful protests. But we see the cars burning in the background. We see the building's burning in the background. We see what's happening in Seattle. We see what's happening in Portland. We see what's happening in downtown Denver. We see what's happening in Chicago. And for that here nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. Norway's got I got some problems. Despite all the media orchestrated lives. About the Oh, Liam. It'd be in some sort of spontaneous grassroots uprising. This was amply abetted by power hungry Democrats and cowardly Republicans and morally bankrupt academics and contemptible corporate virtual signals. You know, BLM is actually a front for a web of well funded communist socialist organizations. That have agitated against United States for decades. For decades. And I know that Some people may be uncomfortable actually uncomfortable when they hear the truth about black lives matter, because they think Oh, but I thought they were all about social justice and racial justice. No, they're actually about Marxism. The founders. The founders absolutely unequivocally. So the third goals were Marxist. And then when we start looking the website things that only maybe should scrub that from the website, But the only watch what black lives matter actually does in the streets. And it's burning buildings. Burning cards. Mostly peaceful protests, according to some in the media. So what a little. Perhaps it's kind of a fitting tribute to the mob and kind of keeping him with the Nobel Awards study downward spiral into obsolescence. You think about Barack Obama? Its participation trophy? It's all you can call it. It's not really, you know, he didn't really want a peace prize. He got a participation trophy. And then there was Palestinian terrorist. Yes, sir. Arafat. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994, despite never having renounced his bloodthirsty ways. And then there's one going before the first African woman to win the award. Ah woman who once told the Kenyan newspaper that the HIV virus was originally developed by Western scientists in an effort to deep populate Africa. And, of course, FDR Secretary of State Cordell Hull, who won the award in 1945 for his efforts to establish the United Nations.

Daniel Ellsberg, the guy behind the panic leaking the Pentagon papers. Congresswoman Barbara Lee. Who the hell knows why And black lives matter. I'm not black lives matter has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Now it's really easy to nominate anybody for a Nobel Peace Prize. If you really want to go through all the rigmarole and paperwork of nominate, you can say If you really wanted to. I'm sure you could get yourself nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize of you even need that resume enhancement. It's not the fact that who or what is nominated It's you or what wins. There is frankly, a possibility that black lives matter and or they could have a tie. Stacey Abrams Wins the Nobel Peace Prize. This year. It will be announced until October, so they've got some time. Meanwhile, the president former President Donald Trump was nominated, as was Jared Kushner and his Israeli counterpart. Now, why were they nominated Because they brought about peace. They brought about three peace deals. Between Israel and Arab nations. One would think of prize that focuses on peace would be like him know that bring about peace will be a mitigating factor, a contributing factor in the seriousness but we all know Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize because he was not George W. Bush. That was it. It's only because he hadn't been in office long enough. You haven't done anything to Warrant, even a nomination, but they just gave it to him anyway, because he's he's not George W. Bush. Boy. Howdy did we ate George W. Bush, So we've got to go and get him. It's fine. They can. It's their prize. They can give it to anybody they want. It's just pretending that it's somehow prestigious now. It's ridiculous. Back to the idea of The $2000 stimulus. Check this going to be cut. Nine. I just want to bring some attention to this is just saw two during the break. They're haggling over the big details. On the $1.9 trillion Biden. Covad plan that, like I said, it's large. It has very little has to do with opening schools. It's only somewhere in the neighborhood of $180 Billion out of $1.9 trillion Has to do with school funding. And the payouts to people. The stimulus checks their promised $2000. But really, they meant 1400 because people got $600 checks. It's again a little bit of sleight of hand. The total being $2000 even though they were saying we're gonna give you $2000. There's there's no rush. The Biden administration reported last week that they expect a deal to be cut in the bill to be finalized and past sometime in March. Sometime in March. That means That people who are waiting for the $2000 or the $1400. There's some people AOC and pushing said 2000. Why don't you make it 2000? But it Biden doesn't seem all that interested in them. But they They were Promising this money immediately Remember the Georgia runoff election? What was that? It was on January 5th January 5th almost a month ago exactly. I want to play you a clip. It's two clips. Actually, in one, the first voice you're going to hear is Jon Ossoff's Who's now senator from Georgia. Talking about the $2000. Then you'll hear Joe Biden down there when he was campaigning for us often, Warnock About the $2000. Keeping in mind. This is January. 4th. By the way, Joe Biden is keep in mind that when you hear this This was talking about the election. On January, 5th Donald Trump was still president. Then Donald Trump was pushing for and willing to sign a bill that would give $2000 to make the total $2000. It was all you know, people need the money. We must get. The money must get people the money now they're talking about March. Listen to what they were saying right before the runoff election cut nine. Go ahead. We will be able to pass $2000 stimulus checks for the people next week when we win these races in Georgia and get economic relief directly into the bank accounts of the American people who are suffering right now, while that, John, Where'd you could make it immediate difference in your own life? Why the people all across this country because their election will put an end to the block in Washington attitude $1000 STIMULUS Jack that money they would go out the door immediately tell people who are in real trouble. We'll go out the door next week. It will go out the door immediately promising people you're going to get $2000 You vote for these Democrats will they voted for them, and Democrats could pass that right now. My, aren't they? Because they need that as political cover so they can lard up the bill to $1.9 trillion and pay off their friends pay off their donors and bail out cities and states. Ever get the feeling you're being cheated. If you're being lied to Course you are. This is a huge fraud. If a Republican tried anything like this, this would be a scandal. This would be a story. Where is the money? Why not do a standalone bill, can't you these people are hurting. Here's a whole bunch of audio of you saying these people are hurting. Why don't you do something Do help these people they would fly through Congress right now. No problem. It would make it harder to push through the rest of the $1.9 trillion bill. Suddenly, suddenly the incentive to vote for that. To bail out New York. The bailout Illinois to mail out California Suddenly that becomes less urgent. There's less support for that, because even Democrats in Flyover states are a little bit wary of going. Why should we? Why should the people of Nebraska the people who Kentucky The people of Arizona. Why should they be bailing out New York City's Bloated pension fund. Why should we be doing that? See, But if you promised $2000 to your voters and you go back and tell them you know that $2000 you got that was from me. Then suddenly you look the other way on the other 1.8. Trillion dollars if you're going to ram through in there Pay no attention to that. How it works in Washington lard, UPN's Republicans and Democrats if they would still be in the same boat if they were split government..
Dershowitz nominates Kushner, aide for Nobel Peace Prize
"Harvard law professor emeritus. That's right, Alan Dershowitz that nominated Jared Kushner for the Nobel Peace Prize because, after all, he was able to cobble together four separate Israel peace deals in the Middle East with the United Arab Emirates and with Bahrain with Sudan and with Morocco, and if President Trump had remained in office, Saudi Arabia was next in line. But Biden will get back to bombing and war and dying because that's what the Democrats do. You know they inflicted how many things that they inflict upon us A whole lot of things. I think whole lot whole bunch. Unbelievable harmony. The um you know, they bombed the Obama. Biden People Libya into oblivion. It's a failed state to this day. Pretty amazing stuff. They bomb and bomb and bomb and they get the Nobel Peace Prize. And no problem, not a not a thing they target missed last night American citizens and they got the Nobel Peace Prize. The Trump Administration for Mideast peace deals Historic each and every one of them and in combination historic on an epic scale and was President Trump will have President Trump was nominated actually four times for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I hope the offer you some amazing guidance 312981 72 100 if you want to speak to a Nobel Peace Prize. There. I said it. Okay, nominee. This is amazing. I mean, I couldn't believe it. I received. I know this guy and I received a message Ricardo from you just one day. Direct message on Facebook, saying, By the way I'm nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, this is Ricardo Torreblanca Zabala Gah. Hope I said that right of the core foundation. I think I say Congratulations. Huge. Congratulations, Riccardo. That's amazing. How does one get nominated for a Nobel Prize? You don't just walk out your door one day, and it happens that someone knocked at your door. Do you get an email? The view is that like Ed McMahon, you don't even know who he is. Probably because you're probably too young. Who knocked on everyone's door, Dick Clark. I think that that and said You're a millionaire now or whatever they said, How does it work? Well, well, thank you for having me here and giving giving me time to talk off about the things that I did, I did, and for in that I'm still doing in the country of Peru and also with Canada. The thing is that I was received a call from the one of the president of the Congress of the country of Peru on and he told me that he nominated me for the for the Nobel Peace price. And then I also received calls from the from the three different universities that also from the presidents of the university's letting me know that I was from united. It was a surprise for me, because what I do Eyes. It's just too is to create a change. I didn't know they were gonna nominate me. It was so surprised. Well, I guess we should back up a little bit. So what do you do? I know it has to do with a foundation called the Core Foundation. Unorganized ation that helps reach sustainable goals. What does that mean? All right. Well Core foundation is have a foundation that that I started. Um, and it works on six pillars that is education, science, high impact projects, technology, innovation and commerce. And what we do is we we connect the The university's from from from Peru on now we're expanding to Brazil. And we contact connect them to universities here, the United States and also in Canada and we create how impact projects or apply science that helped them develop economically and this science is related to energy environment. Food security. And the You know these data is that the government used the government in Peru uses the data for them to, you know, have more informed this state will make more informed decisions based on four for their community. So based on that work, we Uh, tackle one of the big problems that we are. The Peru has that is illegal mining, illegal mining. What he does is they sent gold like about two. Death two tons of gold. Uh and no $2 billion in gold. Uh, U. S dollars go outside from Peru, Uh and dad in that gold is financed by Narco traffic and terrorism. And by us creating these areas off the economic development, but we're doing is stopping and lowering that funding to get out of the country of Peru and And that's very important because that finance that that money financed narco traffic and financed terrorism around the world well, right when you think when you think Ricardo of when I think, anyway, probably not you but when I think of the Nobel Peace Prize I'm thinking of a war that's going on somewhere in the world. And there he is, Ricardo jumping in the middle in the country saying Stop, guys, this side that side! I'm gonna make peace. And and the Noble Peace Prize. I've come to learn through U isn't necessarily about that. It could be something different, and it's not only what you described that will hopefully change. What's going on with drug trafficking in Peru and other countries in South America. Broader picture is if you take a look at our world You. You take Africa, you take South America and Central America. And take for the moment South and Central America. It's in some ways in some ways a completely different world. They call us a developed nation. I hate that term because it makes us seem smarter. But because I don't think we are. But we certainly economically are in a very different place than nearly every country in Central and South America, and therefore the people who live there are at a very different places. Well, so is your goal and part to somehow change all that. Right? Um, the work that the I'm doing is saying the white less nominated was in for him. They call it one is for lowering, uh, poverty. The other one is, uh, to better their in the environment. Um, I unite countries case I'm working with the country of Canada and the United States and the other one is to create peace Congress. And that's what we're doing in Canada. Um and we started, um 2019 alright, well the windows I want to hear what this peace Congress is all about. We will And if you have any questions for a Nobel Peace Prize nominee, we're going to find out when he is going to hear that. He's won the prize. If he wins the prize. What does he win? Is that a gold medal? I don't know. I think it's a lot of money, too. If he doesn't win. What does that mean? We'll find all of this out. I know you're the edge of your.
