S forces that already drawn down during the Trump administration from roughly 15,500 American forces. 2500 troops in country. The president cited the quick collapse of Afghan security forces and said the U. S. Could not provide them the will to fight sharp criticism by Republicans for the Taliban takeover and Biden's reaction. Here's Senator Marco Rubio. They operated under assumptions that we're completely ridiculous. The assumption was well what if the Afghans stand up and fight and really push back? If you make those assumptions, Yeah, they could have held on for another six months or a year. But all the indications were that as soon as the US announced they were leaving, police officers would abandon post. Regular armed forces would abandon post and leaders would abandon the country. That is exactly what happened is what they were told that they were warned. What happened? They didn't care, and now we see the consequences of it. U. S military troops have maintained control of the Kabul airport, but the situation is chaotic as thousands of Afghans try to flee the country. This is W. De vo, where

"I think this is the beginning of a a movement in which Cubans have said enough is enough. Cubans have reached a breaking point inside the Communist island and right here in Florida, Scott hunger, health, anxiety and anger spilling over into one another, opening the floodgates of a decades long oppression and emotion. Protests and rallies have popped up all over Florida and support of Cuba and its people. Here's reporter Alexa Lorenzo. This is something that was spontaneous. We've never seen that Dr Luis Martinez Fernandez was born in Havana, a history professor now at U. C. F. He knows well, what's playing out on the island. What the government does is it unleashes these violent fanatics to beat up Cubans who are basically asking for a universal right to protest piece. Fully the communist government has arrested hundreds of protesters restricted Internet access in Cuba, showing you the dictatorship that has dominated for decades. But the question is what's next here? And what is the U. S government doing about it? Where all these people that promise about human rights? Meanwhile, 90 miles from our coastline, human rights get trampled on every day. That's why Cuban Americans in Florida like Alberto Sarmiento are protesting. His father and grandparents fled for freedom, and he wants American politicians to do more to protect the people on the island. We need action in Cuba. Now. U. S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban American has been a staunch opponent of the Cuban government, taking to social media and writing a letter to President Joe Biden, giving him six steps to take a horrific bloodbath is what awaits if action is not taken something like that does not happen. Senator Rubio also tweeting images of that show Cuban military and police. Barging into homes and detaining

Wet Notes - 4-9-21
"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty

Trump Impeachment Trial: House To Deliver Article To Senate
"Will carry impeachment papers from the House to the Senate to officially marked the start of the second impeachment trial against Donald Trump. A single article accuses former President Trump of inciting the insurrection at the U. S. Capitol on January. 6th. Tonight will be the ceremonial beginning of a trial that is set to get underway two weeks from now. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer stressed yesterday that the process must go forward even though Trump is left office. Everyone wants to put this awful chapter in American history behind us. Sweeping it under the rug will not bring healing the only way to bring healing. Is to actually have real accountability. Which this trial of Ford's We've got NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snout with us this morning. Hi, Kelsey. Hi. Good morning. Why start things today on Lee to delay the trial for two weeks? This started because Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell asked the for delay to give Trump's team time to prepare and to give the Senate more time to get some work done. You know, Once the trial begins, senators have to sit in their seats in the chamber and all other Senate work has to stop, and it basically takes all of the energy and oxygen out of Washington while the trial goes on. And President Biden back the delay because he wants his cabinet in place. It also gives them a Democrat, some time to work on a covert relief package that they promised and just to get a little bit of work done, so they'll start by transmitting those articles of impeachment. Senators will get sworn in as jurors and the pretrial briefs will be due on the eighth so that the trial could be in on the night. Republican senators have been expressing a number of objections to the tri Elit self tell us what they've been saying Primarily, we've been hearing from senators who say that this process may be unconstitutional. They don't agree with the idea of holding a trial after Trump has already left office. Here's what Florida's Marco Rubio said yesterday on Fox News Sunday. I think the travel stupid. I think it's counterproductive. We already have a flaming fire in this country, and it's like taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire. That's a pretty blunt assessment and kind of giving the other side of this, which is Republicans say that, you know, doing an impeachment trial once Trump has gone just makes the tensions in the country. Worse, Democrats have a narrow majority in the Senate. They're going to need Republican support to convict. How are they responding to their Republican colleagues making these arguments I talkto lead impeachment manager Congressman Jamie Raskin. He has a concert. Occasional scholar, and he says that impeachment is a constitutional tool. And it's one that applies on the first day of a presidency and the last day of a presidency. It doesn't just stop being valid because somebody lost an election. But it's true. You need 17 Republicans to vote along with Democrats, and that number seems very difficult to find. NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell. Thank you. Thank you. We're going to bring in Senator Angus King of Maine. At this point. He's an independent who caucuses with the Democrats. Senator King thanks for being back on the show. Glad to be with you, Rachel. I want to start by asking you to respond to that clip. We just heard from Senator Marco Rubio. He says the coming impeachment trial is like taking a bunch of gasoline and pouring it on top of the fire. Well, it strikes me as as a little disingenuous for people who have been building the fire and throwing gasoline on it for months to suddenly say Oh, no, no, we have to stop now We have to have unity. These were the people that were spreading disunion. I'm not talking about Marco himself, but generally the president, of course, and many of this allies in Congress, so to say, now we have to forget about and shove under the rug, one of the most egregious assaults on American democracy in our history in the name of unity when the folks who are Saying that we're so interested in unity a couple of months ago, and for the record, you supported the president's impeachment in the house. Have you made up your mind about whether or not to vote to convict? No, there are two. Well, I'm clearly I just used the word egregious. I mean, I'm I'm I'm very concerned about what what happened on by the way. This will be one of the first impeachment trials in history where all of the jurors were also witnesses because we were there that day. But they're two pieces of evidence that I think we need to be developed at the trial. One is what did the president know? That morning when he addressed that crowd? What did he have for intelligence in terms of the nature of the crowd? What Their plans were, whether they were talking about violence and and storming the Capitol. If he knew that it seems to me that raises A really bad inference for his his role. The second is what did he do that afternoon to quell it? Once we knew that the capital had been stormed? Did he take any actions serious actions to try to quell it or As there has been reporting. Did he think it was a kind of kind of cool thing going on up there, So I think those two facts will have an influence on the outcome of this trial.

And Mona these twelve Republican senators a list, which includes Susan Collins Mitt Romney, rand, Paul, Florida. Senator Marco Rubio all saying that basically what they're concerned about a precedent here. Correct. They are they've been making it clear from the start that they're not necessarily against the president's border plans. Many of them support the president's border plans and enhancement requests for the southern border. But they believe he's taking it a step farther. They don't agree with him overstepping congress and trying to get funding for his border wall without going through congress. And that is what they've been making clear now, the president on the other hand all week has been saying that a vote for this resolution is a vote against border security and minutes after the vote. He tweeted out one word veto in capital letters, and then a subsequent tweet that said, I wanna thank all strong Republicans who voted to support border security. So he's making a clear that he feels that the the all the the twelve Republicans that voted for this resolution are voting against his border security plan. So we're on our way to. A veto which would be the first of his presidency. But the next step in the fight against the president. I guess is going to take place likely in the courts across the nation here. The and other organizations are pursuing lawsuits, correct? That is right. Even though both chambers.

I don't know for months now. But they they're just there was some of the Republicans just were not in big on this whole Wally shoe, which has been part of the problem. Anyway, that we haven't been able to really get a consensus among Republicans to get something done on this. And I think I think some of the cracks showed up in this whole government shutdown the in the Senate, I really do that fetal position. Republicans led there by Senator Marco I want to be president Rubio. One thing he was trying to solve this before he became an issue in the presidential campaign. Didn't work out, of course in sight. Trying to cave on trying to do something. Anyway. Right something that both sides would would vote for even even. It's never what both sides would vote for. It's what the left wants. And what the the right? We'll give up. That's that's true. That's true. It works. But, but, but, but you still gotta get votes in and at that time the Republicans were in charge, which is why it didn't happen, right? Because he was still in charge of the Senate.

"Hello. I'm Jake tapper in Washington where the state of our union is open at least for now. The US government is back up and running after five weeks that left hundreds of thousands of Americans without pay and agencies starved for resources on Friday. President Trump gave in housing he would sign a temporary spending Bill to reopen the federal government without any funding for the border wall. The move was a win for house speaker Nancy Pelosi who maintained she would not even discuss border security until the government reopen the president defended himself against critics from the right tweeting. The move was quote, not a concession, but on its face, the president retreated from his demand and the deal was essentially the same as what the Senate unanimously passed in December before the president forced the shutdown lawmakers now face a ticking clock, of course, they have three weeks to make a deal before the government runs out of funding. Again, President Trump has already said he will shut down the government or declare national emergency. If he does not get funding for his wall. Joining me now is Republican Senator Marco Rubio, Florida. He's also a member of the Senate intelligence committee. Senator I want to start with the shutdown. The president did not get any wall funding in this short term deal. SNP says the economy over the last thirty five days lost billions of dollars because of the shutdown. Was this whole strategy strategy by President Trump with Republicans in the house and Senate going along with was it a huge mistake. I don't think shutdowns are good leverage. It's a lesson. I've certainly learned in my time here there's been two shutdowns since the time I've been there and the aggressor and neither one was the winner. I think it's important to separate the tactics from the goal and the policy, and what the president wants is not unreasonable. It's a fraction of what Democrats voted for in the past. And more importantly, I think and these for me is achieving border security is the key that unlocks the door to doing other things on immigration that he's expressed a willingness to do the extension of TPS dealing with a DACA population. I believe he's willing to go even further. And do something reasonable with people who have been here a long time unlawfully, but are not criminals, but all of that is being held up by the inability to get agreement on border security, which the president campaigned on. So I hope people will separate the tactics from the policy because the policy is reasonable and solid. But as you know, the Democrats voting for more money in border security in the past especially in two thousand thirteen the immigration reform Bill that you helped push that was in exchange for a lot of other things having to do with undocumented immigrants having to do with a path to legal status. It wasn't just given out willy nilly. You see there's an opportunity here over the next three weeks to get something done. Where does that optimism come from? Well, first of all we shouldn't be trading border security for anything because it's something we're all for if you're for something. And I'm for something..

But we have a lot of alternatives. Honestly, we have everybody look for the most part people agree. What I say everybody. I would say almost everybody agree we have to have border security. We have to have a wall in order to have border security. You cannot have security without a wall.

No about or paid attention to its gun control. And it came from none other than Senator Marco Rubio, and what's all this about? So every time we have a new congress all the pending legislation from previous congress that is dead. That Bill on Capitol Hill from schoolhouse rock. He was part of the top two percent.

And it went nowhere. The very first thing he decided to do in the new congress was propose it yet. Again. Now, here's something to watch. Whatever you happen to think of it. Yeah. Your name we tend to also through perception and reality. I think that everything is necessarily partisan, for example, any type of gun control or reform is necessarily something that Republicans don't want, and and necessarily something that Democrats do want and in the like, but somewhere along the line there can be a level of pragmatism that enters the equation. And this is where Ford is a little bit anomalous this way. Did pass comprehensive gun control reform last year and happened to be reformed that as a proud supporter of the second amendment and a gun owner, I generally supported and it happened to pass with a completely Republican controlled state government here in Florida happened to be signed into law by our Republican governor Rick Scott who happens to be the incoming junior Senator from Florida. So as Marco Rubio proposed this as you have Rick Scott that is going to be another Senator from Florida who actually helped install it and make it happen. One of the things you're likely to see playing out is some type of reform here. Now, you might be aware the President Trump ended up using his pen to sign out through that kid of action bomb socks. He is also that.
