"President Daniel Ortega, who's been cracking down on political opponents in Nicaragua this week, turned his attention to the country's news media. His national police ransacked the home of a prominent independent journalist and jailed two more reporters. Ortega's escalation comes as he is expected to run for an unprecedented fourth consecutive term this fall. NPR's Carrie Kahn joins us from Mexico City to talk about this. Good morning, Carrie. Good morning. So this week, Ortega was on national TV, defending his recent jailing of 20 opponents, at least five of whom had said they were planning to run against him for president. What did he say? He was very defiant, he said. This notion that he's locked up candidates are opponents of him is ridiculous. He said. Those jailed were the same as those who had risen against him in the April of 2018 and back then More than 300 protesters were killed and hundreds were jailed. Ortega said. Those jail this time around are the same. He calls them Coup plotters. Let's hear a little bit of a speech to who's Gondo? At criminality cannot entitle control pace. He's saying we're bringing charges against criminals who are working against the state, and that is mostly what these people have been charged with. There's a sweeping new law that are take a recently passed that allows any critics of the government Those who received funding from foreign entities to be charged with treason or terrorism. So there's a lot of history here. Ortega became a leader of the international left during the Cold War after his Sandinistas brought down a U. S backed dictator. Is he still the revolutionary of 40 years ago? His rhetoric has changed greatly, and has more than four decades in politics after the revolution or take a spent many years out of power. He came back in 2000 and seven with a much more conciliatory tone, especially with his dealings with Nicaragua's business class and the Catholic Church to and that worked really well for him, and I was talking with Eric finds work of the Council on the Americas. About or take us timing And he said, Really, or take his goal is to solidify that power. He really She's not just that The opposition itself is very weak, and this is an opportunity to really lower the boom on them for all time, but frankly, that the international community is in disarray and unable to react effectively to prevent him from doing it. So who are these people that have been rounded up by Ortega In the past weeks, there's a longtime leader of Nicaragua's leading business chamber of commerce. That was a big surprise. Former Nicaraguan ambassador to the U. S. There's also passed revolutionary allies of Ortega's One of them is a 75 year old former general who actually led some of the most brazen attacks on the dictator in the 19 seventies. Nearly all of those who have been arrested haven't been heard from relatives say they don't know where they're being held in its fear that they're in a prison outside Managua. It's this prison that's infamous for torture and horrific conditions. So what happens to them now? It's just really hard to say given that you know, there isn't universal international condemnation right now, and Ortega's really digging in There was a resolution passed in the organization of American States condemning the crackdown. But big Latin American players like Mexico and Argentina abstained from that vote. Later, both countries did recall their ambassadors from Nicaragua. And on Friday, Mexico's president did come out with a strong statement saying human rights abuses will not be tolerated anywhere so possibly Mexico could play a role. And helping to find a diplomatic resolution to all of this. That's NPR's Carrie Kahn in Mexico City..

"The time is now twenty two minutes past five morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin. Good. I'm Steve Inskeep. The military confrontation between Pakistan and India is closer to the United States than it may see India's airstrikes into Pakistani territory are thousands of miles from the US. But because the two countries are nuclear powers, any full-scale war could endanger the planet. Hussein economy is on the line. He's former ambassador from Pakistan to the United States. He now lives here in the US ambassador. Welcome back to the program plus your being here. How much worse is this than the typical confrontation between India and Pakistan? I don't think it is worse. Actually, both sides say that they won't de escalation it's all a matter of national pride on both sides. India says it wants Justice because of terror strikes in Indian territory by Pakistani-backed terrorists. And that's why struck Pakistan Pakistan on the other hand says that the real issue is India's control of the territory of Kashmir. And that it does not like the idea of India violating its sovereignty that said both sides have said they want the escalation, the international community's spending more on towards India this time, which is something that Pakistan realizes and that also serves as a check on the prospect of esscalation, nobody wants. To start a war when they don't have many countries on their side. Well, there's a gesture of de escalation that we're learning about here this morning from Enron Han, the prime minister of Pakistan, not addressing these big issues that you mentioned, but Iran says the Pakistan on Friday is going to release an Indian pilot who was captured when his plane was shut down shut down. And he's describing that as a peace gesture is at the start of a way out. I think that is I think prime minister Ron com has spoken relatively soberly throughout the crisis. Of course, there are various reasons for that. Including the fact that Pakistan is on the verge of economic crisis. It has the need for international assistance is negotiating a program over the International Monetary Fund, and it needs a support from other nations. Most of whom have criticized the original terrorist strike inside Indian-controlled. Kashmir that started this entire crisis. That said the peace gesture is definitely a very positive step. Now, you mentioned that the international community seems to be leaning toward India in this confrontation does that in your mind include the United States, which is formerly allied with Pakistan, but it's always been a very complicated relationship. Yes. The United States, of course, has been as saying repeatedly that the real issue is Bacchus fan support for terrorist groups now, the Mattis complicated, of course, Pakistan maintains that because India does not be attention to resolving the Kashmir dispute that. The people of Kashmir are unhappy with Indian rule and so- terrorism is a consequence of that. But the US has for many years now called upon Pakistan to dismantle what it calls the terrorist infrastructure in Pakistan, and that hasn't been adequately done, and the fact that this group that launched the terrorist strike that caused the death of more than forty Indian paramilitary soldiers. And and the group that did it actually is based in Pakistan, and it acknowledged that it had done it at that meetings complicated for Pakistan. So the US position this time seems to be you know, what you start these things every few years. It always starts with the terrorist strike by Pakistan. And then it always ends with escalation and America has to defuse. It this time you guys figure it out yourself in that position has really surprised Pakistan's leaders. Have we should we be a little bit anxious here that the two sides may be backing away from a cataclysm, but they are not so far as we know really addressing this fundamental dynamic that you just described absolutely to countries that are nuclear armed that have gone to four four times before that our neighbors with the television anchors every evening arousing hyper-nationalist feeling the Indian. Television anchors saying, go, Google, let's try and take revenge. Let's take these Pakistanis bucks. Tiny television anchors saying box should listen once and for all and get Cushman liberated that actually does create a very disturbing in volatile situation ambassador. It's always a pleasure talking with you. Thank you so much. Thanks a lot. Steve Hussein economy was Pakistan's ambassador to the United States. And he is now in Washington at the Hudson institute. To nicaragua. Now, where President Daniel Ortega has been under pressure to leave office after a government crackdown on opposition leaders.

One day after opposition leader after opposition leader, one guy do declared himself interim president this is awkward because Venezuela already has a President Nicolas Maduro who while increasingly isolated is refusing to step down the US is backing Guido in this fate. And today the State Department ordered some of its diplomats out of Venezuela. And here's Philip Reeves is in the capital Caracas. Hey, film high. So let's get up to speed on the latest just in terms of state of play one key question as this unfolds has been who controls the military, and they announced their allegiance today told me what happened. Yes. The defense minister General Vladimir Pedrena Lopez went on TV he was surrounded by generals from the army's. High command all wearing their uniforms and medals, and he announced that they view the doodo is the legitimate president of Venezuela. Commander in chief. He launched into a diatribe about what he called a coup that's being launched by forces on the far right aided by what he called imperialists. Venezuela has eight strategic military command centers around the country. And all of that command is also separately announced this support for the doodo a number of them doing that on on state run TV as well. So the army top brass for now is behind the doodo if he loses their support it's very likely game over for him and the opposition as you know, have been appealing to the army to abandon him and talking about an amnesty. Although it's not yet clear how widely that amnesty would apply to the high command. And what about Madura himself has he been spotted today. Oh, yes. Very much. He's been live on TV making a lengthy speech at the supreme court. He is wearing his presidential gold chain and his presidential sash and holding a copy of the constitution and explaining why. Why he feels that? Why does announcement that he's the interim president is illegal at one point? He broke into English and said hands off Venezuela, though, many attacks on the United States and particularly on secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, he again as with the military is characterizing this as a attempted coup, which is orchestrated by the US some very clear signaling going on there. What about Guajardo? Do we know where he is done? We do know where he is. But he has been heard from he's been tweeting mostly so far tweets thanking the long list of countries mostly in the western hemisphere that have stepped up and recognized him as the interim president of Venezuela after he made that announcement in such a dramatic fashion in front of the cheering crowd in the heart of Caracas yesterday. So he's been doing that. And there's been one very important development. As far as he's concerned, which concerns the fact that the US is now saying that. Not only do they support and recognize him, but they plan to channel revenues towards him. And that means revenues from the oil that they buy off Venezuela, which is a considerable that money, right? It's like a billion dollars a month. We're kind of leverages the US hoping that might by. Well, it has to be a very serious issue for the government, then as well as oil revenues of their main source of money the industry is in collapsed, but it's still something that is vitally important for the survival of the Maduro regime.

There are two colleagues detained in prison and in isolation. Nobody has seen them except for one official picture that was taken to Miguel morning. The moment in his he was taken to trial. They are being accused of fabricated crimes like conspiracy hate institution or federalism with absolutely no proof. They did nothing else than doing journalists. Reporting criticizing the government exercising, our freedom of expression, constitutional rights, but Ortega's dictatorships. It's it's it's making Jordan at least making it a criminal act.

"Running one is since one thousand nine hundred seventy nine has been renewed every year because presidents find the powers that they have under them necessary. And it's easier to just keep renewing the emergencies and to get congress to pass legislation that one in seventy nine that was under Jimmy Carter blocking Iranian government property. That's correct. Yeah. And there are a number of other national emergencies that seem kind of are keen in their detail like blocking property of certain persons who have interest in Somalia, Burundi or Libya. Who's paying attention to these? Well, we we would we would argue not enough people. I think one benefit of the president's threat to us national emergency powers to build his wall is that this is brought to the attention of many more people the potential for abuse that these powers represents I've read that there are some experts saying that if he does declare national emergency to pay for this wall. There's a possibility that it could be appealed or taken to court as that ever happened with other declarations of national emergencies that there's been an appeal there. There have been other arguments regarding national emergency powers because the national emergencies act under its language actually requires congress to meet every six months to consider whether the emergency should be rescinded or not. And they have never done that. And there was a challenge at one point by someone who is affected by one of these national emergency powers to say, that's the power was no longer legitimate. Because the congress has never met under these provisions and the court. This was the first circuit court of appeals. Essentially said that it was not mandatory that congress meet if they want to meet they can. And in fact, they never have. And I think it's clear that there would be litigating. That would be brought if the president were to declare a national emergency to try and build his wall. We're about to meet a journalist on the show, Andrew he's from Nicaragua and fearing for his safety as an exile right now, I mentioned this because just about two months ago. Another national emergency was declared involving Nicaragua. How have you come to understand this declaration declared by Trump under a provision called the international economic emerges emergency economic Powers Act, which the president is required to declare a national emergency. Users powers intact. Those powers under. What is known as EPA is the most frequent use of towers, and they're used to target individuals around the world that are involved in human rights, abuses, etc. And many of them are ones that as an individual. I can say I get behind. The problem arises when emergency powers are used to. Distort the way that government is supposed to operate, and they are used to try and circumvent or potential use to try and circumvent congress Andrew Boyle with the Brennan centers liberty and national security program at New York University. Thank you very much. Thank you for having me for a full list of declared emergencies since the Carter administration, including the thirty one active ones. Just go to the world dot ORG as we just heard President Trump declared an emergency regarding Nicaragua. The US has been very critical of President Daniel Ortega's government and his ongoing crackdown on dissent. One of the government's targets. The independent news media reported Maria. Buckle up below has a story of one outspoken journalist from Nicaragua who has targeted for arrest. Hymie Arianna has been living out of a suitcase for the last month. He's a heavy set man who suffers from migraines in high blood pressure. He came to Miami with the sun to get medical treatment. But then police store. His workplace in Managua, the TV news station. One hundred percent, not CBS. They ordered a Gotcha for myself and all the journalists the shuttle, they got you're the owner of the mill it'd be getting motor the chief of staff or the is Lucy yuppie there, which they are jailed wait up, according to Arianna and media reports the journalist were accused of inciting hate and violence. Arianna says he refuses to be intimidated, the only gravity that will let people know eighty got our. The reality that the people were suffering in the hands of the dictatorship or tiger, which are killing people. Ortega was a leader of Nicaragua's Sandinista revolution. For decades ago, he returned to power in two thousand seven and has been president ever since in that time. He's also appointed his wife as vice president and his party scrap term limits on the presidency..

"They've needed to file in secret as Nicaragua's President Daniel Ortega continues to crack down on his opposition newspapers. Other media outlets have exposed brutality by government and paramilitary forces. But media offices have been raided by the police. Journalists have been beaten and arrested and otherwise threatened. There's a similar story out of Nigeria military personnel showed up this week at the headquarters and other offices of the daily trust, which is one of Nigeria's largest newspapers, according to CNN to journalists were detained because the army said they published a story that put soldiers lives in danger and shared classified information. Now, David we've kind of gone through this and the US in terms of prior restraint of newspapers. It was one of the things that came up with the Pentagon papers. But talk about this case in in Nigeria and what the political environment's like right now over there. We're heading into a presidential election in Nigeria Bahari, the current president ran on a security platform. And so what you have is a newspaper reporting on the security situation, not going, particularly well in this case, it was an offensive against Boko haram who had taken certain areas in in Nigeria. And so I think we should be pretty skeptical of the idea that this is this has only to do with military secrets given the the political environment. As you mentioned can we back up to Nicaragua? Joyce, you had mentioned them, can you give us a sense of what role the press has been playing there, particularly if they've been pushing harder on Ortega's government, and that's prompted more oppression. Like, how's that plan? Right now, they are trying to push as you mentioned, they they're working and secret trying to uncover some corruption and other stories, but it's it's so I don't think it's an. Easy task especially for us. Journalists sitting in Washington to to be in their shoes to work under Ortega who has been consistent and has assault on freedom affects oppression. I think it's remains to be seen how this plays out. But it's it's not pretty one more story out of Africa. We should note Congo has finally announced the results from its election which had taken place on December thirtieth the winner. Took a number of people by surprise Felix Chesa Katie was declared the winner on Thursday. He's the opposition leader as we said that took some people by surprise. But David what was it about that that surprised people? So the backdrop to this election is that Joseph could be has been in power for eighteen years in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He's clung onto power after his term should have ended. Finally, we had delayed elections. And he and his preferred successor was up against two opposition candidates, one of whom Martin. Blue was expected to be the stronger of the two opposition candidates. Ultimately when the results were announced the other opposition candidate was declared the winner leading to speculation that could be may have cut a deal. Basically, don't investigate me. Let me keep what's mine out step aside. You can be president. Now. I I don't have that firsthand, obviously, that's just a rumblings. But, but there's no reason to be particularly credulous when it comes to election results in the Democratic Republic of Congo internet was cut off after elections because of rumblings about what the results were going to be. So this is an area where there's not a lot of trust. But I did hear from one expert that say people might be so excited to see Kabila go that they won't react negatively at the idea that these elections may not have been a credible. Although there had been some hopes David that this would be a historically democratic transfer of power for Congo. Congo has never had a democratic or peaceful transfer of power in its history. And so. This is a landmark that could be stepping aside. And yet, there's plenty of reason to think that he's not stepping aside in in a democratic format that would stand up to European standards before we get to our last story, if we could back up to secretary of state, Mike Pompeo for a moment and the Middle East trip that he's on kidding. We give us a sense of kind of where this goes from here..

From NPR news this is all things considered I'm Ari Shapiro Nelson Chang in Nicaragua nearly three hundred people, have been killed in violent clashes between protesters and forces loyal, to President Daniel Ortega it's gotten so bad that a few days ago pro government forces attacked a Catholic church. Student protesters had been using it as a shelter the Washington Post Josh. Partner was inside the. Church interviewing the students here's how he describes the scene, when I was there there were three seriously Wounded people inside the church and the police were blocking ambulances from getting in so for several hours these people were lying on the. Floor bleeding and pain one. One woman a medical student had been shot through the leg had broken her femur and she was just lying on the ground inside. The house. And no one could get get help to her, police knew how badly injured some people. Were inside the church and were deliberately blocking access. To medical assistance, right and the priest at the, time was on. His cell phone doing a live radio broadcast appealing for. Help describing the situation Seek permanent was talking to the government there's all these negotiations going on with the sole intent of trying to get the ambulances into the church to let the wounded be. Taken out just to take a step back I mean these protests, have been going on since April can you. Just remind us how did this all begin a so, this is frustration and anger in this country that's in building for many years. President Ortega's in his, fourth term as president over that time he has undermined. Democratic institutions and, a lot of ways the spark that set off the protests in April, was a change to the social security system that made people, pay more and receive less retirement and the revision does of elderly people protesting this and then getting beaten by police and those were seen around the country. And. People guy extremely upset and there were large marches in the, streets and when police then fired on those protests in there There's further crackdown in violence that really nothing's off you mentioned that the State Department's have been communicating with Ortega's government what have those communications been like what is the. US government, saying the US government has been calling on. The Nicaraguan government to stop using violence against protesters they have? Issued sanctions against Nicaraguan officials they have essentially said. That the use of force against against these protesters is unacceptable and that they're calling for a, democratic peaceful solution to the problem but is any of that pressure making a difference on the ground so far it hasn't it hasn't made a huge difference the president Ortega has refused to consider early elections the dialogue process between the church the protests and the business community has essentially. Been put on hold as the situation continues to passively escalate I'm, just wondering where people are seeking refuge I. Mean most of the migrants coming to the US mex- Geico border happened from Mexico El Salvador Guatemala Honduras but not from Nicaragua do you give them a. Sense that Nicaraguans are fleeing are they about. To flee, are they fleeing elsewhere besides the US what's happening Yes there are reports. That the Nicaraguans are fleeing in large numbers primarily to Costa Rica the stories that have come out so far and yeah it's possible that the, numbers of Nicaraguans traveling to the US could increase as well that hasn't been like you said. That they traditionally haven't been coming in. Large numbers or at. Least compared to the numbers. Of the, neighboring countries, but it's possible those. Numbers could increase Josh part low is a reporter for? The Washington Post thank you? Very much for joining us thank you very much The news overload we all feel can extend to the world of science our friend from the world of astrophysics Adam Frank has offered to provide some tools to help make us all, savvy consumers of science..
