Top contenders for president in Guatemala election
"Them. Marla in Central America is going to the polls today to elect a new president, the incumbent, Jimmy Morales has come to the end of his single term in power and he's not allowed to have another one. The main issue in the election is political corruption. But with many candidates being barred from standing during the election campaign, how chaotic has the whole process. Become sandra. Cuff is a freelance journalist covering Central America. Yes. Absolutely has been this year, had a shorter campaign, period, than usual, three months, and many of these candidates were barred during the campaign, period. One is recently within the past two weeks. What has a lot of political parties. There's a field now of nineteen presidential candidates, and there's also elections for congress and local officials will be happening. So within those nineteen candidates, there's a clear front runner, Sandra. Tortoise from the centrist named party? But. Heard closest top two rivals were both barred from the race. So that was sort of who was barred because she's the daughter of a coup leader, and former dictator, general Mon, who stood trial for genocide, and the constitution bars, who leaders, and their close relatives from running for president the other who has been, you know, a much more sort of contentious. Exclusion from the race is Tele, Donna. She's a former attorney general and she worked really closely with a UN backed emission against corruption. So a lot of what's been going on has been tied to government corruption investigations, into government corruption, which included investigations into the sitting president, you mean what Alice and the leading candidate? Sandra toyotas. So. Yeah, it is definitely being sure mayhem over the past three months of this campaign period. Incumbent Jimmy Morales Constand again. Kenny. No, the constitution curl hits reelection. In guatemala. A lot of Latin American countries due to the twentieth century history of really long dictatorships civil war. Guatemala had thirty six year civil war to two hundred thousand people killed most of them civilians by the army most indigenous so constitution prohibits reelection and actually, the ruling party candidate isn't polling anywhere near the top. So in this field of now just nineteen because five candidates were excluded the top two. This Sunday will go on to a runoff election in August. The US will be very keen to see the kind of government, establish that encourages stability because there are so many migrants at the moment, heading from Guatemala to the US under definitely the number one country origin, currently for my grandson asylum, seekers apprehended at the US border. And so the issue. Of migration, though, has actually not been a major issue in this election campaign in Guatemala, and part about is because all debates around policies and platforms have just been in the shadows, because there's been so much chaos in terms of legal battles over the candidates. I'm however, you know, the main candidates do each have different policy proposals, or, you know, at least statements in terms of how they would deal with my Gration and those gift for widely. There's sort of a broad spectrum, and they range from, you know, increasing rural aid for small farmers, health and education, all the way to proposing asking the US to establish military bases along the border between Mexico and really wide range of proposals that are on the table. In terms of what the candidates are saying, they'll do to try to stem migration, a living standards that bad in Guatemala, an incredibly high level of inequality in the mall. Atlanta and all increment of policy seventy percent of the population. Nearly seventy percent work in the informal economy. There aren't jobs. Also climate change is really affecting subsistence, farmers. There's also high levels of violence. So yes, conditions really are that bad, causing people to flee. And, you know, a lot of people and migrants and asylum-seekers themselves refer to the role that corruption has played in that because, you know, it has taken away from potential government aid and policies that would go to sort of alleviating or address the root causes of all of this migration son recover putting on Guatemala via slightly dodgy line sorry about that. Brian is Central America case in point when it comes to the loss of democracy. I mean, it's what it's emblematic of is the fact that there's a lot of there's more elections than ever before in the world. More countries are holding elections. But the quality of those elections is not particularly high in many places that are rife with corruption, and violence because people don't have confidence in the election system in places like that and be, it's very easy to get away with manipulating the election. Particularly winced ability is one of the key drivers of foreign responses to election. So in a place like Wata Malla, the US will be most interested in the election, creating continuity stability security. And so a lot of times you end up having people who will rubber stamp, or praising election. That's poor-quality simply because it is going to deliver the types of things that foreign governments in the west want. And that's that's I think something that ends up facilitating or sort of allowing poor-quality elections to

And then you click on it goes Mexico cracks down on migrants after pressure from Trump to act. detentions and deportations and mexico are multiplying quickly the ports in new york times shang that it so sphere among thousands of central americans and others crowding the migrant shelters and budget hotels here in southern mexico many of them hoping to reach the american border the mexican government has been under intense pressure from the night from president trump and the united states to block the tens of thousands of undocumented migrants trudging north each month with the american author thirties unable to stop illegal immigration into the united states that's because of our crazy asylum laws just marching to the ports of entry they're not trying summer trying to come over the border via river in the traditional old fashioned way then they're not intended to an asylum claim that the cartels in the cody gotten smart they're teaching them how to mouth the words of asylum and they get into the system from which they hope they can eventually skate But. Foreign minister from Mexico came to Washington yesterday. he warned the terrorist would undermine mexico's efforts and that's a good face saving compromise but they have really upped their game along southern river which marks the border between mexico guatemala scores of rafts cross within view inefficient border bridge made of wooden planks lashed tire inner tubes they fled back they put back and forth throughout the day openly carrying undocumented migrants local residents and black market goods according to the rash mun the recent crackdown had not affected illegal traffic but that's not what the leaders the leaders it's working now in april more than one hundred nine thousand people were apprehended at or near the southwest border of the united states the highest monthly total since two thousand seven i like facts facts are stubborn things a hundred and nine thousand people in april it is a crisis at the border and democrats will not help the president is using the only tool in his chest i'm not a fan of terrorists but i am a fan of stopping this humanitarian disaster i can't tell you what happens these people one hundred nine thousand people a month i don't even want to think about what happened to them in the sorrow that they put up with and they've bankrupt their families they sell everything they have and their villages some villages empty i read one report people lured by the promise of new asylum gadget so the more and more that the president can do short threatening tariffs is not putting tariffs on threatening tariffs is threatening tariffs And if the Mexican government gets onboard all to the better. there are friend there are ally we get along fine with them but we need enforcement at their southern border and at art southern border there northern border and our southern border is the same border but they're shut borders with wata malla that's for the benefit of the steelers fans and we need to make sure they're doing everything they can to keep that

Well, the new another episode apart b-actor it is Wednesday April third top stories to the day. I'm gonna take a Trump date. We're going to talk about the border healthcare. Hackers and his father's birthplace Marsh. Gonna tell us the legend of Joe exotic. It's it's almost as good as Joe dirt. It's a good lunch. I'm excited very excited. West tell us about some good old, South Carolina church Shelton. There's some good old Christians doing Christian things down there. And then pow tickets through lightning round of other headlines. Okay. Let's get into the Trump date I up the southern border. So last week. You may remember that President Trump said he may be forced to shut down the southern border to keep the country safe from the national emergency. I do remember that. Yeah. Right. We covered it here. So you knew you knew it advanced. But I'm gonna give you the update now. So even though both Pelosi in the house McConnell in the Senate have said that they can't get a border deal done fast enough and that shutting down the border would be catastrophic to the economy. Trump said on Tuesday, quote, if we don't make a deal with congress the borders going to be closed one hundred percent on quote, that's all the percents every percents. That means it's close. It sounds like we don't even need the wall. If you can just, you know, claim it's just to bring this up as a solution earlier. I think that's what he's thinking too. He just figured it out claim it's closed and this shutdown damn deal. Not only does Trump on action now from congress on a border deal. He also cut foreign aid for Wata Malla, El Salvador, Honduras, basically, saying, why would we aid them if they send caravans at us? So I don't know because they they harbour MS thirteen right? Yeah. I mean, there's lots of reasons why. But at the same time, you know, this is kind of like one of those it's hot outside. So where's your climate change arguments? Like. True. I don't think Trump's going to be a guest of honor at the CONCACAF away games coming up. God. It's so hard. I'm just Lexi CONCACAF cold outside whereas your climate. Yeah. We knew that's okay. Yeah. Next up healthcare. You may remember Trump's tweet from last week about how the Republicans will become the party of healthcare. Yeah. I mean, do you know what it means? Can you know, but no, no, no, no. Sounds good though. Yeah. Okay. While this week, maybe not so much Trump met with McConnell. That's the Senate majority leader day old Turkey neck. Oh, yeah. Trump met with gone on Monday where they discussed the strategy which apparently will be the strategy to approaching healthcare which apparently will be try and use the next year to keep costs down on healthcare. Otherwise known as gutting ObamaCare or the Affordable Care Act as much as you can and try to get it overturned in court, and then after that the party healthcare, the Republicans will propose comprehensive healthcare measures to replace the Affordable Care Act ObamaCare after twenty twenty so a little bit of a punt from where they were last week to which I'm sure all Democrats are muttering to themselves. Well, that's just not possible. That's the repeal replace he'll then replace really the Republicans lucked up by getting to calling themselves the healthcare party. I. I mean, it's it's a fun sound, really. I mean, the Democrats had ObamaCare call themselves the healthcare party. I mean, if you have the opportunity, you gotta use your move, Democrats and surest thing, maybe that's all this is I think all the deals suck Americans are still getting fucked by everybody in healthcare. No matter who's making the fucking rules too much pen too much. Well, Penn too much, I'm due for a tornado here. Just to get my money's worth. We'll just let's get on the soccer pitch. Yeah.

"But I think we'll get there, and we should take the example of the courageous survivors and lawyers Wata Malla. So let's go to John Bolton the national security adviser unfocused business. We're in conversation with major American companies now that are either in Venezuela. We're in the case of citgo here in the. United states. I think we're trying to get to the same end result. Here you know, Venezuela is one of the three countries I called the troika of tyranny it'll make a big difference to the United States economically. If we could have American oil companies really invest in and produce the oil capabilities in Venezuela. It'd be good for the people that Israel at the good for the people of the United States. So so that's the quote of John Bolton on FOX. And at the same time, you have the United States imposing sweeping new US sanctions on Venezuela's state oil company. Well, that that statement from Bolton his remarkable. And it sounds like he's implementing the Trump doctrine of Victor belong. The spoils take the oil because would Bolton is proposing. There is not just to overturn the policy the boulevard. The charges movement. He's talking about overturning the oil policy that existed before China's came to power under the previous US, essentially US, directed conservative governments in Venezuela. When China's came to power, the oil company in Venezuela was already nationalized he inherited that he did not suddenly nationalize an oil industry. That was controlled by American corporations. It was already done by his by his predecessors. So he's actually Bolton his actually proposing a radical change in the traditional economic policy of in as well. And also, by the way, the idea that the Venezuelan oil companies some alien force to Americans is is not true. Many of your. Viewers have probably been to we used to be called cities service. Our cold citgo gas stations across the United States. These are the stations of citgo which is the American subsidiary of the Venezuelan state owned oil company and they've been doing business in a normal business fashion in the United States for decades upon decades. And another thing that's interesting about that comment from Bolton is it doesn't if you really study, it, it doesn't even have an economic rationale. Let's say if you're just thinking strictly self interested economic terms for the United States as an entity that wouldn't even make sense because in today's world your worst enemy will still sell you oil at the market price. And there's not a whole lot of difference economically between controlling the oil fields yourself. F- and buying the oil. That's produced by them on the open market, regardless of who does the production. The discipline of the market ensures basically, a uniform price the term in by the market and not by the political wishes of the of the oil producer. That's the way it works in today's world. So the reason for Bolton advocating having the US companies coming in and seizing. The oil is more political making one giving the US source of leverage deciding where that oil can go, and where the how the oil revenues can be used because up to now the first under traumas and continuing to certain extent under Mobuto, the Venezuelan government boulevard in government has used oil revenues for several politic. Purposes one is to fund social programs that have helped the poor. And in fact, that was the specific reason that the rich after two went on strike against traumas trying to bring down the economy because they objected to the oil revenues being used for social programs for the poor. They wanted the oil revenue to flow somehow into their pockets, and Secondly Venezuela has sometimes use that oil revenue that oil for foreign political purposes, for example, they assisted Haiti in providing oil to Haiti and canceling announcing cancellation of Haiti's oil debts, a number of years back under traumas when Haiti was in particularly desperate straits, even in the United States. Even in Boston. Congressman Joe Kennedy, the former congressman years ago, establishing pro a program in Boston to provide a local. Heating oil to his lower income constituents in the Boston area and part of the way he did that was by making an arrangement with the Venezuelan oil company. So if you had American corporations in control of the Venezuelan oil, these kind of political choices could have court be reversed but in raw economic. Rationale terms. It wouldn't make sense at all. It's very bold. I think very revealing..

"Mark Levin show on big band camp. That has got Robin were were kinda up in the air right now. We've got a couple of different things that we're thinking about doing the president is taking questions now about the border wall funding and all of that. And real quick I want to get to this first question, which is about whether or not he'd be willing to let the government shutdown last for a year, possibly Senator Schumer came out and said that the meeting from his point of view and speaker Pelosi's was contentious, he also said you said in the meeting this is him quoting you just want to check that the shutdown could go on for months or even a year or longer. Did you say that I did is that we are? Absolutely. I said that I don't think it will. But I am prepared. And I think I can speak for Republicans in the house and Republicans in the Senate, they feel very strongly about having a safe country have a border that. Makes sense without borders. I've said it many times we don't have a country. I hope it doesn't go on even beyond a few more days. They'd really could open very quickly. I told them at bring who you want. We have three people you can ideally bring three, but you can bring six you can bring nine you can bring twelve and they're going to be working over the weekend. I think it may have been somewhat contentious. But I think it was very productive. I have to say that. And I think he said that to the productive part from your point of view, Mr President, the Democrats move it all in your direction on funding of a barrier. Into that. Because I don't want to put them in a position where they have to justify anything to a lot of the people that they have to make happy. We want to save lives. We want children to be safe. The children are being decimated. And I'm not talking about necessarily children in our country. I'm talking about wonderful children that are coming up from other places, whether it's Honduras or Wata Malla, or El Salvador, or Mexico or other places, and we have to take care of those children. Also, we can't let them die on the way up. What's happening to women? All those caravans. You're not talking about it. But it's horrible. What's happening? If they know it's not going to take place because they can't get through because we have a great border wall or fence or barrier. They're not gonna come up, and you're not gonna have the problem at the same time. They can apply to come into our country legally like so many people have done, and we need people major. We have to have people because we have all these companies coming in we need great people. But we want them to come in on a merit basis. And they have to come in on a merit basis. They can't come in the way they've been coming in for years. I get calls from the great tech companies. And they're saying we don't allow people at the top of their class at the best schools in the country. We don't allow them to stay in our country. So they ended up going back to China, and Japan, and so many other countries all over the world, and we don't care. Them. They get educated at our finest schools. And then we don't allow them through various set of circumstances to have any guarantees of staying. So we lose out on on great minds. We can't do that. We have companies if we don't change that. And we're working on that. And we discuss that with the Democrats, and I think they agree. We're working on that. But we don't want to lose our great companies because we have a ridiculous policy that we won't accept smart people. So that's the president again making the case for the border wall for reformed immigration system, talking about the merit based immigration system as opposed to the visa watery that he's talked a lot about and making the case that yes, we can beef up ports of entry..

"There have been two children that have died in US custody in recent weeks, the latest of which was an eight year old boy from Wata Malla. And once again, the Democrats want to investigate the handling of how America, and I agree. We should never put children. I don't care where they're from. We should not be putting children in harm's way. Children's should not be preyed upon by anyone of any nation at any time. And if we have facilities where child predators are, employed and not vetted, those people should face the full full force of the American law. This eight year old boy that died in custody. We now know the father refused medical treatment for his son. It's a horrible tragedy to lose an eight year old the kid was sick. He had flu like symptoms. The father refused medical treatment. And then the boy became so ill. He had to be hospitalized and died before they could resuscitate him. It is a tragic story. But when you read these in the media, you would believe that this president has an absolute disregard at the very least he has a disregard for these children. And at the very worst. He's using them in punishing them. So that people will stop coming. He is going to treat these children so horribly that they die. So that others won't come. That's how racist and how much he hates these people. And it's an unfair narrative, I have some disagreements at times with the president of the United States and the way he does things I saw this treatment with my own eyes during the Obama administration. I had pictures on my phone. I still have the pictures on my phone. It haunts me. Because as Americans we do not once we get fed up with something. Then we we moved to action. When are we going to be fed up? They're arguing about the need for border security. The thousands of people that come here illegally every day. The thousands of people pouring across our border in places that are not the normal border crossings the drugs that are coming across our border the crime that crosses our border the dangers at the southern border of the United States all of the evidence. That's there. There's not one political figure with an honest face that can tell you that our borders are secure and the way we're doing things is working right now the system is broken. There is no border protection and people are suffering. There are American suffering on our side of the border. There was a rancher that was known to help people ranchers in southern Arizona on on the border. You know, the classic the old stories showed you ranchers that would ride their land on horseback. And now they ride their land on ATV's, but they're always armed with fifteen or some other form of rifle because they come in contact with the cartels and human traffickers, bringing people across their land all the time they carry food. They carry water they carry medical supplies because many times they are the first responders on the scene to save someone's life before calling the federal authorities and having people taken into custody. And there was a rancher the came upon somebody that he thought was injured or wounded, and when he dismounted from his ATV thinking he was going to try to render aid to someone that person turned over and shot and killed him. These are the real stories of human suffering because of a system that we are allowing to happen. And the media is complicit is complicit in covering up. It's sad. It's unfair. It's not the right thing to do. And it all has to do with twenty twenty and winning election as sad as that is this is about winning an election. Some more on this before we get out of this hour and coming up the next hour. We'll talk about the huge surge and the stock market the good things in the economy, and what our friends on the left are gonna try to do in the next session of congress. It seemed to be an ongoing theme doesn't it.

"Here to talk about Mexico's migration enforcement policies as well as the US's role in those plans is Meyer opera Bach. She's a freelance reporter currently writing for the New York Times who is with the migrants in Mexico. There are people who are generally coming from Honduras. So there are others from El Salvador and Guatemala off from Central America and are heading north often because of dire economic conditions where they've been living at times because the cities or towns where they live in have become quite violent. There's a high rate of gang violence in Central America, and these different factors have pressed people to leave their countries, and you see a rise. Also in the number of families who are traveling together. You see a lot of parents with little kids which seen over the past few years, but it's particularly noticeable when the group is this large. I'm just curious. What has been the? Mexican response to migrants. Have they used force to prevent them from moving forward. When the migrants I came to the bridge between Mexico and Wata Malla. That's the official entry point then Mexican government, and the Guatemalan government had police blocking the entry point the Mexican government had riot police there that riot police is you might have seen a news reports used tear gas to try to repel the crowd and succeeded in at least pushing them back enough. So that the gate that they pushed open could be closed again. And then the government said that it would start processing people it's so far process a little bit more than three hundred people a day, and that has been the main use of force since then the Mexican government has pretty much not tried to stop the migrants there too many migrants for them to really do anything other than escort people as they go. Oh by so we've seen a police presence. There was a police helicopter flying around is a large federal police force that has come down specifically because of this mass migration. But at this point is also left to renew simple governments to try to figure out where do we put all these people can we fit them into a stadium? Can we fit them into parks can fit them into some sort of municipal auditorium? And that ends up being the larger question that has to be answered because the Mexican government is not about to stop these thousands of people from walking through what they have done is tried to encourage people to apply for some sort of legal status be that refugee status Mexico's equivalent of asylum or some other sort of paperwork. They've mentioned visas in the past there's been the option to get through a safe passage permit as happened in the last care, man. But people are generally distrustful of the government in various faces. The government has said you can stay here to rest their fairgrounds and top of Chula and another space where we are now in weeks, LA and people have generally exited those government-sanctioned spaces at a fear that they might be deported. At what point is the Mexican government or any of these governments thinking that this could become a humanitarian crisis. If there are. No, where's the really nowhere for these folks to go? I mean, I think this is already a humanitarian crisis and people are going to keep going north. The question is what will happen along the route whether the government will try to intervene later on. But the US government will try to do to intervene. And I also think that there are just hard trips of walking this these distances and the incredible son with few resources that are going to be apparent Mexico has its own long history of migration. And so there are also people who you will find who will say that some of the central Americans are criminals who are who think they've been paid or different rumors that you also here in the US on the other hand, there are many people who have turned out, whether they're just from local community groups, or from church groups or people who just walk out of their houses.

"On the other hand, there are many people who have turned out whether they're just from local community groups or from church groups, or people who just walk out of their houses and have had a far friendlier resp-. Monce have tried to help out my adver. Bach is a freelance journalist in Mexico. My thanks for being with us. Thanks for having me on Monday morning. The president had this response to the mass migration on Twitter Wata Malla Honduras. El Salvador were not able to do the job of stopping people from leaving their country and coming illegally to the US. We will now begin cutting off or substantially reducing the massive foreign aid routinely given to them said the president will that could mean even more cuts in aid to the region in two thousand sixteen the United States. Congress allocated seven hundred fifty million dollars for development assistance in Central America in the twenty eight teen budget that requests that number was reduced to four hundred sixty million. So what can we make of the president's latest threat joining me now to answer that question as Mark Fierstein Fierstein was former assistant administrator for Latin America and the Caribbean at the US agency for international development. And today he's a senior adviser at the Albright Stonebridge group. Mark, welcome to the takeaway. Here. So what exactly I mean, can the president make good on that threat to either unilaterally cut off or substantially reduced foreign aid in short? No, the president cannot do that. Congress has the power of the purse. Congress appropriates money and the executive branch is required to spend it now. Congress can make a decision to cut assistance limit assistance, but I think it's important to point out that the assistance that we've been prevented Central America for decades and particularly increase is in the last few years. And you mentioned the increase in two thousand sixteen that increase had bipartisan support. Both Democrats Republicans recognize that the way to reduce my Gration is to improve the lives of the people in Central America in Guatemala, no Salvadoran to strengthen the capacity of governments to reduce crime at REUs poverty. Then if we sure. And if Ashley become productive if we were to cut this assistance because I would just lead to more migration. So then the question is we we have cut that assistance in two thousand sixteen. It was seven hundred and fifty million and in twenty eighteen the budget request is now down to four hundred sixty million. What gives there what's that about? Well, this a ministration that doesn't really believe in foreign assistance and the president who doesn't appreciate understand the value foreign assistance. He tends to see it as a gift and he doesn't understand is that whether we're spending it in all Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, or other places around the world, it's really in the US national interest to be supporting these countries. And I think there are four reasons in particular with regard to Central America. Obviously we're trying to reduce my Gration. We do that by helping these countries to I noted to reduce crime, reduce poverty, their commercial reasons to support foreign assistance has he's countries as people in these countries become wealthier move in the middle class, they become consumers and they become the for consumers of US products and that creates jobs United States. There's also. National security reasons. There are drug traffickers, Asians, gangs, operate in these countries, and we've an interest in strengthened capacity of these countries to combat those organizations. And again, there you mentioned reasons. I mean, people are living in poverty in desperate conditions in these places, and we've obligation as a as a prosperous country to try to provide assistance to them for years after the migration crisis that caused President Obama to respond. We seem to be in a similar situation, and I'm wondering, is there any way to evaluate how much of the aid went and where it was supposed to go? Was the aid has the aid been affective? That's an important question. And I think he ID and other organizations do their best to try to assess the impact of the job offer. One example US do you years ago basically beginning a pilot study a pilot program, and they looked at the areas of the country where there was the highest levels of crime, and then they invested. Great amount in certain areas and certain areas they did not. And they saw that the areas where they're investing where they were training police, where they were providing assistance to youth and building you centers and giving them providing them with job opportunities and and job training..

"When we start giving cops with that kind of ability to enforce against weaker people, a bad ass nickname, like not supposed to be cool, right? You're not to be with ice right now. I mean, if you want to change it to the bureau of border enforcement, you know the BB that's not cool and I could live with that and I and I think that does send a message. I mean, you know, again, it's propaganda, it's subtle, but we. Give these guys, these cops, these bad ass ice t shirts, and they give them a bad ass name. And then eventually they have too much power. So the issue isn't abolishing them. It's changing the name and reducing the power. I would. I would certainly abolish ice, but I also think and I also think there's a whole, you know, I mean, look. One of the things that Omla's promised to do in Mexico is is, is is demilitarize Mexico's border with Wata Malla and a basically said, look, we're not gonna. Do you know your dirty work anymore? But to be really clear like there's a lot of steps in between here. Demilitarizing border does not mean that like you could have you say, look, we're going to get an accordance with international law on refugees. We're not going to have an empowered independent agency to terrorize families across the country. And we're still going to, you know, yes. Like there's still a process that you, you know, we could check your passport look at what you bring into the country. Like none of this is necessitated, you know, violence and militarism in any way, shape or form. And it really is. I mean, this is also why. I mean, obviously I oppose things like NSA surveillance, you know, just on the merits. I don't. I do not trust that agency with that level that type of unaccountable power in monitoring. But the other argument that you would, you know people like me would make and I never said Trump by name, but you would talk about. Policies like then say, or even like deportations under Obama, and you take all right guys. Let's say, let's let's stipulate for a minute that Barack Obama is the perfect Confucian ruler of the world, and he never makes a mistake and he's never wrong. And obviously I could even just sort of criticizing him is super bad, which some people did get like about Obama. Just as other people, you know, couldn't ever have a realistic analysis of Obama either. That was fair to him, frankly. But you know, I would say, okay, what happens when none of these programs are codified or accountable or scaled back, whether it's drones or NSA or ice, and you elect a total lunatic Republican president. And the only part of that sentiment that I was wrong about was I didn't specifically predict what lunatic it would be until much later. Right. It was like, even in your worst case scenario, the level of Lucy was underestimate, right? Right. I say, hey, you see that like Aren JD face asshole who like his fantasizing fingering his daughter one day. He's going to be in charge of all of these programs. Yeah, I know you're right. And the key is is, is you know, for all these things, I mean, look, there's there's. You want realistically, right? Assuming that Alexandria Cossio Cortez is not going to be the president right away. Right? She got to wait seven years anywhere. Shot down the road actually got shops, but yes. Not. She? No, she does have political SCO question so, but you wanna a policy. We're, we're there people in the room who are, I don't know experts on immigration and immigration policy, and they need to have a voice in setting administration policy. We know that doesn't exist here. We know that it's it's it's hard line immigration opponents and law enforcement. That's who makes up Trump's policy. That's right. How much more money can I get? How many more guns can I get? What can I get it? We get ten tanks to patrol the border around Paso. We'd love that that will help. Right. Great. Terrific. And there's nobody there to say, here's a breakdown of who's coming across and why they're coming across right.
