"The opportunities are greater. Indonesia, of course, is growing tremendously in the last 30 years. It's now one of the world's fast rising emerging economies. It's gone past us and it's on its way. Perhaps to be number 5 on number 6 by the end of this decade and on from there. So there should be a lot of opportunity, but we've not really embraced it in the last decade or two arguably. This hopefully is a return to that passionate and engagement. Do these leaders, I mean, you talk about the personalities of Paul Keating and president Sato. But what about albanese and widodo? We know they both ride bikes. But beyond that, do they have much in common? Well, they're very different in many respects. Joker widodo jokowi is a self made entrepreneur come. Local mayor come president coming from humble backgrounds hence the I think the deliberate reference to the bicycle in that meeting. Of course, Anthony alberti comes from humble backgrounds. But president Joker widodo is fairly much domestically focused and in a sense kind of concrete and transactional Anthony albanese is more sort of big picture and emotion. So the different in that style and that way of operating, but in other respects quite compatible, both are concerned about progressive agendas in the case of president widodo. It's not as wide ranging as prime minister alberni, there's a sense in which jokowi is a social conservative, but he still wants to get ahead and transform Indonesia. So the future Indonesia is better than the past Indonesia. So he's a progressive and that sense is hopeful and optimistic. And I think both leaders share that sort of hopeful optimistic view of the world. I think what we're seeing with the albanese prime ministership is a sense of needing to get on and do things and change things because we can not just keep on doing things the way we have been doing. We've got to we've got to engage with First Nations Australians so you mentioned people always statement from the heart and victory speech. We've got to deal with climate change. And we've got to engage with our Asia Pacific indo Pacific region. And I think there's a lot of genuine heartfelt enthusiasm but also optimism. And I think that's just what we need. It's where we need to be going. And of course, it's hard to think of a more formidable and impressive program minister than penny Wong. It's good that she's now the third female foreign minister, our first Asian Australian foreign minister. And I think that really resonates in the region and she's a nice match for prime minister albanese in terms of being able to drill down on details and engage with really concrete issues..

"Greg Barton reviews Anthony albanese's official visit this week to Indonesia. It's a relationship that's brimming with potential, but can it be realized? From the UK, we look at the precarious position, p.m. Boris Johnson finds himself in to discuss the politics of contemporary Britain from a perspective way outside the white hole bubble. We turn to the editor of the Yorkshire post, James mitchinson, for his blunt assessment. But first, what happened when prime minister Anthony albanese met with his Indonesian counterpart president joko widodo this week. Over the years, Australia's relationship with Indonesia has ebbed and flowed. But this week, prime minister albanese's official state visits sought to breathe fresh life into the relationship with one of our closest neighbors. Now to discuss how the visit went, areas of mutual interest and the prospects for future engagement and delighted to welcome Greg Barton to the program, Greg is research professor in global Islamic politics at deakin university and Asia society Australia scholar in residence Greg, thanks so much for joining us. It's a pleasure. Thanks very much. There is a lot on the incoming labor government's plate internationally and domestically. Anthony albanese was straight out the door to the quad meeting in Japan, front affairs minister penny Wong, of course, went straight to the Pacific to build bridges there, and this week they both traveled to Indonesia. How would you assess the meeting with president Joker widodo and the prospects for future engagement? Look, I think in short, this is a great start. A great start is really important. It doesn't solve the whole job, though, but to begin well set you up for more success in terms of trust and confidence and sentiment. I think with engaging with in any relationship, certainly it's included international relationships, but particularly I think in Asia, a sense of respect and passionate engagement showing that you turn up and you care that you value the other. That's really important. This last week of Anthony albanese and penny Wong to Indonesia, echoes and visit made 30 years ago by Paul Keating when he had just won an election and he sort of established a modern tradition of Australian prime ministers going off to Indonesia for the first foreign visit. Other prime ministers have done this to their credit. But there was a sense of this being at return to that era of passionate engagement is known for being robust and occasionally not just eloquent but Volga. And that's not necessarily an Indonesian cultural style, but what's most important in Indonesia is that you turn up and the new care and that you show an interest in the other. And for that reason, polkadot was much in mind. That was a high point in the relationship. It's not just about personal chemistry. I mean, he turned up to meet with president zuha, that was not an easy relationship. In democratic Indonesia, it's much easier. I think some of the barriers are lower..

Let me just start by saying that. I was raised by very politically progressive parents. And i was born in fifty three and we have loads of relatives in israel and distant relatives killed in the holocaust. It heads though. It was a big part of my education as a young boy was learning about the holocaust and just trying to understand how people could do those things to other people and how the national is actually a lot stronger than the rational or sadly. We've seen that in american politics recently to and so it just was. My family was well off. My dad was a doctor in my mom was a teacher. My grandparents on one side were very poor renna bookstore but my other grandparents were successful business people and and so. I had the sense that i shouldn't be paying attention to when i like to call a deeper threats now then just food and shelter and so that was just part of my very early upbringing. And then i was a young boy during the cuban missile crisis and we would be taught to duck and cover case. The bombs went off. And you know that wasn't very reassuring so you come to the us biden. Oh yeah. Oh yeah i was born in chicago. Yeah again my grandparents on Ones i came over from poland around nineteen twenty but but my other graham great grandparents actually came in from russia in eighteen eighty and chicago.

doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation and Disaster Relief
"Today's episode will be focusing on the healing hands. Foundations Disaster Relief Program. The Dough Tara Healing Hands Foundation was founded in two thousand and ten because the dough Tara founding executives had a vision of bringing healing and hope to the world through providing global communities with the tools needed to become self reliant, empowering individuals and changing lives recently Mark Wolfert, one of the founding executives discussed the formation of the Healing Hands Foundation as well as its focus on disaster relief as I think back on those. Those early days we just felt inspired. We knew what we wanted Tara to be. It included as much as anything else. This element of giving lifting helping serving empowering others, and that's the essential oils do that to some extent, and that's beginning, and that's a great foundation, but that's not the only part of it so what we then had to do. We thought we have got to find like minded people the Dough Tara. Went looking for a way to fulfil their mission of giving, and they found an organization called Mentors International. There's a great story that I don't think many people have heard in that first year or two. We were doing well. We were growing, but every penny was being put back into the business and one day. Greg invited some people from mentors international mark. Mark Peterson who was the sea eel of Mentors International, which does microlending too small family businesses. He invited mark to come over and make his pitch. Widodo Tara could and should be a sponsor, a benefactor to donate to this loan fund that mentors used, and Greg came in to a meeting afterwards with the partners and proposes to us. We were on board. Board this is exactly where we wanted to be who we wanted to be and we wanted to tear it to be known more for its social impact as for essential oils, so on the side. We were already doing some things, and we really wanted to start with this. There was only one problem we didn't have any money. We were putting everything back into the business into inventory into growth and saw it was a matter of saying. Do we really want to do this? How important is it and it took a leap of faith? We said we are going to do this. We made a commitment. We wanted to do this and this is who we wanted to be as we started this company. Only does the Healing Hands Foundation continue to work with mentors international, but they've expanded to partner with other organizations as well working on many different projects with communities throughout the world. In addition to working with their partner organizations, the healing hands, foundation encourages wellness advocates to find ways that they can serve in their community with help from healing hands. There came a point few years in where we thought there, there has to be more, and so we offered. Our wellness advocates the opportunity to receive matching funds from the Healing Hands Foundation for their own passions. Their own humanitarian were that they wanted to be involved with, and perhaps Tara healing hands doesn't always offer the specific opportunity that a wellness advocates looking for, and so we said we'll do your own. We'll support you and Oh, my goodness, that is the day that this whole healing hands vision took the next step once the healing hands foundation had set up a way to partner with wellness advocates. They started to look for resources. They could provide when disaster struck. You know whether we're talking about. Fires, floods, earthquakes volcanoes. There is so much need out there. When we saw how eager our wellness advocates were to help before we've heard about something on the news, we had a wellness advocate who was there living it telling us here's what's going on will. It didn't take very long at all for we realized. Wait a minute. Let's unleash the power of our wellness advocates to help solve these problems, and was just simply matter of devising a tool that they could use and what turned out to be as of course, these emergency relief kits that they could then. Purchase and donate to healing hands were these could be sent to these areas where people are in need. One such disaster occurred in Hawaii a couple of years ago. On May second twenty, eighteen. The hall amounts summit craters Lava Lake. A persistent pool of bubbling lava inside the crater began to drain and cracks started to appear in the rift zone. The next day, the first Fisher of many appeared in the Leilani estates, subdivision and lava began to flow. Joy Wu and sandy shuffler shared with us their experiences during this time. And on May third of twenty eighteen on the lava began flowing in the volcano, just eventually there about twenty four fishers that erupted with mom con out, and there was a huge earthquake and this massive explosion. And then lower Puna panicked and I saw firsthand. How dramatic! People's lives were being affected. It was like a normal day and you drive for thirty minutes, and you enter into a situation that looks like a war zone I mean an entire subdivision was just swallowed up by the lava flow, and that's a hard thing you know if you're standing at your home, and you literally can see lava moving in inching towards. You know it's going to consume your home. That's a that's a really hard thing to experience, and we all remember seeing on the news, these graphic pictures of the lava, coming down from the volcano, going across the roads and into the communities, and almost cutting off the island north, and south from each other i.

Trumps speech revealed aa divided union
"I. Today's PODCAST president trump's delivery of his third state of the Union address to a very divided house chamber. The president highlighted the stock market spy election in. US stock markets have soared seventy percent adding more than twelve trillion dollars to our nation's wealth. Transcending anything anyone believed leap to his possible and the unemployment rate the unemployment rate is the lowest in over half a century and very incredibly the average unemployment right under my administration is lower than any administration in the history of our country as well as healthcare socialism and the corona virus outbreak. A few of the most notable moments of the night though the first lady's presentation of the Presidential Medal of freedom to conservative talk show personality rush limbaugh a surprise appearance from along Widodo Venezuelan opposition leader and a memorable moment from house speaker. Nancy Pelosi at the end of the president's address Speaker Pelosi physically ripped up her draft out of his speech Aiming Java's joining us now from Washington. Which I guess we're going to? We got hashtag everything nowadays Hashtag rip it up. Rip The speech trending Amen. Yeah you know. In the old days you used to try to get the sound bite out of the speech that everybody would play on television. Now you try to get that mean that's going to go viral. And this one certainly only did last night that she was asked about that afterward and she said it was simply the most appropriate response given her choice. The the implication being that she could have done something more dramatic and and that was the most polite way she could think of in the moment to express her displeasure with what she had just heard in the house chamber. Brian aim and I need to know. Do you think she she plans to do that. That's a really good question. You know she was. She was holding those notes The the presented speech that she was given by the president throughout the night and sort of holding holding them up and checking against them and following along. Hard to say whether that was preordained. You and there was this moment at the beginning where she reached out to give a handshake to the president. Not Clear to me whether under the president intentionally snubbed her or simply didn't see it because he was focused on giving her the document and then turning back to give his speech maybe she felt frustrated. that he he hadn't shaken her hand. Yeah that's what I I was when I was about to question you aim and that's what I thought I wondered if it was in response to that moment where right you couldn't quite tell. Was He purposely ignoring her. Didn't just look at her and realized that she was extending her hand to him and yet she turned telling the moment he left when he didn't shake her hand. Looked like she the expected him to shake her hand and he didn't and she looked like she felt snubbed. Not Clear to me that the president actually saw the hand go out but look she did not introduce the president with the traditional RUFFLES and flourishes in terms of the language is my distinct honor and privilege to announce she simply said ladies and gentlemen the President of the United States so Ah this was a a a Nancy Pelosi who went in there sort of In in a way dealing with an impeached president not to give him all the honorifics so I I think the pump was primed for this whether it was intentional and preset or not they were. They were on a collision course. And we saw what happened as this ever been this. This partisan partisan because I have to say I didn't like ripping it up. I didn't like the fact that I didn't tell me. Give you some history here is this is this. The way of the world have been Congress people who've decided that they're not showing up before to object. You have to really go back to the nineteenth century I think to see this kind of partisanship. I mean I mean you read about the pre civil war era in American in the American Congress and reading about duals fistfights on the four. Somebody got Brian with a cane and amen because we say it's never been this bad because there there were times when people were dueling. Yeah but it's never been wasn't going anywhere good at the time that that it was this bad before right. I mean so. There's a famous stain. There's a staircase In the bottom of the house chamber marble staircase and there's a stain on that staircase. And it said Eh. Legend is that that's the bloodstain of a reporter who was beaten nearly to death by congressman for asking a rude question. And it's still there from the nineteenth century. I don't know if that's true within the Apocryphal thing that they said but but those years were brutally partisan and physically brutal. We haven't seen actual fisticuffs yet in in Congress. But you do get the sense watching this. That maybe we're not that far from it it was you know the see-saw partisanship that cheering and booing You know it was America's political division on display last

Roads to success: Indonesias election
"Indonesians votes today in vast election, a mammoth effort in the world's third largest democracy with a hundred eighty seven million voters choosing local regional and national officials including the president. The incumbent president Joko Widodo known as Jacoby held rallies. All over the country. He came to power five years ago, promising reform development and an end to corruption his bid for a second term is something of a referendum on what's been dynamic presidency. His main opponent is former general provoke SU Bianco. The Bill will tends to appeal to more conservative Indonesians. But both candidates have tried to seem in touch with rapidly urbanizing people wanting a better life while also speaking to the conservative wing of the country's Muslim majority. Young people in the capital Jakarta seemed clear about their preference. The program made the unique. Up in a shopping mall who treat who's patisserie who's nineteen. So she's quite happy with the incoming president. He has a program to help the elderly. She says and he goes into the field a reference to his tendency to visit ordinary Indonesians and ask them about their concerns. And breathe will begin to who's thirty-three says jacuzzis opponent, the former general reminds him more of autocratic leaders from Indonesia's repressive past and that he'd be a step backwards. People in Indonesia thing that this presidency has has gone the well guy Scriven reports for the economist from south East Asia, he's been all over Indonesia's many islands asking people about how politics affects their lives Jacoby came into power in two thousand fourteen with his plan to spend over three hundred billion dollars launch building thousands of kilometers of roads, and railways, and it means a lot more to people than just being able to get for me to be more quickly when I was in East Java. I spoke to a restaurant owner who told me that the roads built in his local area had out farmers to get their produce to market much more quickly without the food perishing in in the control heat when I was in kind of West Kalimantan last year spoke to teach and she told me that a road which had been built in the past few years had allowed her pupils to get to town. Acre an intern those university. And so as a result more of a people's will kind of applying to two university. So so so roads mean kind of, you know, all sorts of all sorts of different things to lots of different Indonesians. But let's go off route. If you will what other sort of signature achievements has has Jacoby got to claim he's on the set of policies have been aimed at reducing poverty. So these include things like kind of more scholarships for poor families for two to pay for that children to get into school as well as giving more money to the to the kind of villages, probably the most popular of his anti-poverty measures is a large expansion in in health insurance. And so now almost over two hundred million Indonesians have gone some kind of health insurance cover aunt from about one hundred thirty million in two thousand fourteen right? And with a raft of kind of people. Accomplishments like that he must be he must be doing pretty well in the poll. Absolutely. Yeah. His approval ratings are very high and always have been throws presidency. And in the in the pose he's twenty percentage points on average kind of a head of his opponent. And so with all these achievements behind him is is there anything that sort of dragging Jacoby down anything that worries people about him? Or is it just all happy news? No, it's I mean, it's not all it's not over as combining means people of basically being worried about Chicago. He's attempts to ensure that he gets reelected, and and some of the ways he's gone about that he's being raw the kind of intolerant of dissent. He the police have shut down various kind of opposition movement marches and rallies. They've also rested. Several opposition leaders since January on what looked like quite flimsy charges. So Jacoby his also been strengthening ties with the. Military. He's brought into his innocence cool several Fulmer kind of military generals who were very powerful during the Suharto dictatorship which run from nineteen sixty seven to nineteen ninety eight and was kind of deeply autocratic state where the military held a huge amount of power maskco. He's been kind of cozying up to to these figures on top of this. He's also been trying to shore up his his support base with MS limbs, he's chosen as running mater are hard line of misled cleric who has kind of raw raw, the conservative views, and who is in favor of implementing Islamic law throughout the country, and as what kind of banning homosexual acts and outlawing kind of minority Muslim groups what this means is that lots of people who saw Jacoby as kind of social reformer I've become very disappointed by. By the way, he's proceeded and how does that play out regionally? I mean, a lot of a lot of these tensions maybe present also in sort of, you know, countries in the region how how important this election. More broadly. The election is is very important, more broadly. I mean, partly because Indonesia's you're such a big country. It's got two hundred and sixty five million people. It is in the top ten economies in the world when you take into account purchasing power parity. It's also kind of the biggest missile country in the world. It's it's not a country, which has a very outward-looking all of loud or boisterous foreign policy, but it is important. So people have some calls for concern, but not so much as to to outweigh people's sort of how pleased people are with how Jayco he's done. That's right. That's right. The other the other option in the election of proposal Biondo is is quite a kind of distasteful figure for for various reasons. He's also accused of committing various human rights atrocities in the in the dying days of this Harto era.

Pence to reveal "clear actions" on Venezuela after deadly clashes
"Of Venezuela has become a physical standoff and a deadly one at that yesterday played out at the Colombian border as Venezuelan troops while the president Madero prevented aid from coming in the self-declared president one Guido had declared sun Saturday that the deadline forgetting a large backlog of aid into the country. Was there Gwyther supporter does CNN that? At least five people were killed in the clashes that ensued between the two sides two hundred eighty five people were injured, according to the Colombian Foreign ministry when Venezuelan when Venezuela fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters as for the US response secretary of state might bump bail. Call Maduro a sick tyrant for blocking the deliveries tomorrow. Vice president Pence will meet with WTO in Columbia. Joining me now is why does envoy to the United States. Carlos vacuum. Mister vecchio. Let me ask you is the bulk of the aid getting through the Colombian border. And why is it not getting through the Brazilian borders since vote the Colombian government and the Brazilian government back, Mr. Widodo and are harsh critics of the current president with the the of nNcholas Maduro. Thank you for it for this opportunity on you. Just let me tell you the follow him. I have seen human rights abuses since this regime took power particularly since two thousand fourteen but just today was a tragedy was Kramer again humanity. What we saw yesterday was a regime killing innocent people trying to bring food and medicine to our country. So therefore motto is not only creating the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is also blocking dissolution of the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. And that's has to be rejected by then tire international community. But let me understand whether it is getting through how much is getting through. And again, why is it not getting through in Brazil from Brazil, but from Columbia? As you know. I mean, yesterday three trucks rich our territory and Venezuela on all of them were burnt by the regime, so unfortunately, the food medicine couldn't rich the people that need that food and medicine on on why we decided just with stop the humanitarian aid the humanitarian aid was remaining, Brazil and Colombia. And then we need to discuss with the Colombian on Brazilian authorities. The path to come in the next day. So we will preserve that humanitarian aid, and then we will work together. And when that humanitarian they will enter into our country, your boss one Guido has called on the army to get on the right side of history. So far the army has not listened to him. It is still backing Madero. What would it take to get the army to flip? Well, we need to keep the pressure in different levels under streets using our national assembly as the only elected into tune in Venezuela and also put under pressure from the international community. I yesterday something happened, which is was very relevant sixty member from different forces of the military institution decided to support. Why though on many of them some of them as spoke to say in that inside of the military institution. Dureza a Hugh discontent against their regime, and that will be expressed soon. So we need to increase the level of pressure. And to force the military force to back what we want to achieve which is the recovery of our democracy, president Maduro routinely in every rally he danced assaults yesterday. He says Guido is backed by Trump is Trump's puppet, you guys the Venezuelan people should should stay with me. He said this. That salsa dance. How much is that working? In other words, how is it effective is it from adore to tell people it's the Americans who want Guido, and we are preserving Venezuelan nationalism. I mean, the only pop it is immoral. Here's a Cuban poppet. That's the reality. This is Venezuela movement led by the people of Venezuela under the leadership of one why as an interim president they are putting their life at risk as you saw yesterday in order to recover our democracy on what we have seen ISA fight between democracy and dictatorship on the free world is supporting our movement on we need to see it in that way. This is not a problem of ideology. This is not a problem of nationality. This is again, a fight between democracy, undefeateed, or sheep. And this is a clear Venezuela movement led by Venezuelan with a clear agenda site by Venezuelans, and what we are getting is the support of the international community, and I feel so proud to be Venezuelan onto Biella Tino because the cost of their moxie in these hemispheres is taking place in Venezuela due to the courage of the Venezuelans. Let me ask you finally briefly daughter. Trump says all options are on the table, implying that there is a military option that the United States could use. Do you welcome that kind of rhetoric or do you wanna make it clear that the United States should not use any military force in this in this issue? Again, this is another fight between the United States on the little regime. This fight between the free world against them alluded regime, and keep this in mind, we are dealing with a criminal state. They have been involved in drug trafficking, money laundering, human rights abuses, on of court linked to terrorist group, and we need to consider this inorder to elaborate, do you want to hear do you wanna start to villa? Terry options on the table. Do you think the United States military? We need to have all the auction. But under the principle of responsibility to protect which is approved by the u n we cannot allow that. Our Jim kills his own people. I'm. We have on their the principle of the UN responsibility to protect our population. He's under fire for his arm regime. Mr. Vecchio, very important.

Venezuela's Maduro Shuts Down Border with Brazil to Stop Aid
"Tomorrow is the deadline set by one Guido widely viewed as the interim president of Venezuela for humanitarian aid to be delivered to the impoverished country. Then his way has been facing rampant, hyper inflation and shortages of food and medicine after years of misrule by President Nicolas Maduro who still clings to power. Mr. muddle won the presidency again last year in elections that were widely viewed as fraudulent now Venezuela's opposition and more than fifty countries recognize Mr. Widodo as the president. He's been organizing stockpiles of food and medicine in Colombia, and Brazil and will be traveling to the Colombian border from Caracas to meet the deliveries. He's also called for volunteers to come to the border and help distribute it more. No single thin guarantee. Ah mister Modesto says he'll block any aid deliveries yesterday. He closed the border between Venezuela and Brazil and has threatened to close the border also with Colombia. Nicholas maduro. The president basically deny is that there's a humanitarian crisis going on in Venezuela part of the pace that the opposition is making is we're the guys who can relieve these shortages and begin to feed you properly and begin to provide medicines in the hospitals. So we'll any of Mr. guidos humanitarian aid make it into the country. Brooke Unger is our America's editor what is Mr. Guido planning this weekend. He said February twenty third is the day when all the say that's piling up in Columbia and other countries around. Venezuela will begin to move into Venezuela. To relieve the humanitarian crisis there and the big question is going to be can you make that happen? And what will the government do to stop it? Where's this aid coming from a lot of it's coming from the US? They're awesome European countries that are contributing aid to this effort. So it's coming from quite a number of places. But yeah, mainly from outside the region, and why this deadline what's special about the twenty third Guido and a rally. Week or so ago said, you know, kind of name the twenty third is being the day when this would begin to happen. So it's kind of self imposed deadline, but they needed to start at some point. And you know, obviously in addition to being a day when hopes that aid begins to flow into Venezuela. You know, there's there's a lot of politics and symbolism surrounding this day. So he not only wants food medicine to get the people, but he wants the world to sort of rally around the idea that, you know, his interim government is going to is going to provide support for for Hungary Venezuelans so about that crucial. Question of Ken, Mr. Guido, get this eight through do you think he can what is what's the plan? What he does have what he's trying to have is he's signed up hundreds of thousands of volunteers who were supposedly going to try and begin to bring this aid from the border with Colombia into something like twelve cities inside Venezuela. And how that actually is going to play out will be very interesting to see, you know, we don't know exactly what his tactics are going to be you know, one thing to to point out is that the the border between. Colombia and Venezuela was pretty porous you know, you could have all in tears crossing the border on guarded points. And attempting to bring aid in that way. There's also speculation that you know, they might be airdrops of aid from from US planes a could come in that way or by or by boat. So, you know, we don't know exactly what Ruthie eight is going to take. And what we really don't know is what the reaction of Venezuela's armed forces are going is going to be what might they do it. Why can they be seem to stop aid coming in the government portrays this essentially as sort of invasion of Venezuela? I mean, they they regard the delivery of American aid as being kind of a cover for an attempt to in American attempt to topple the government in American invasion of swords. And you know, they would see stopping the aid as being away of defending their sovereignty. President Trump has come out clearly in support of Guido. Except president widens generous offer of amnesty deliver your life in peace with your families, and your countrymen what's America's interest in this whole question. Don't Trump has taken a very firm and consistent line against the Madero regime, which is not entirely consistent with his line on other repressive dictators in the rest of the world their various explanations for that. I mean, one reason may be that they're quite a lot of Americans Venezuelan and Cuban origin in Florida, which is an important swing state. And so, you know, it it it Trump wants to appear to be on the side of those people who are who are certainly against the Venezuelan regime. You know, it's also true that, you know, some prominent Republicans in particular Marco Rubio, who's from Florida has kind of made it his his 'cause right? What about the effect that might have been in in the country? It could it be that the Venezuelan people like meddling American administration even less than they like the situation. They've got. There's a big risk here at the moment, the US and the opposition in Venezuela are kind of working hand in glove, and the opposition of gone along with very very tough American sanctions, which the hope is that the sanctions are going to dislodge the regime by denying the cash basically needs to survive, but you know, in doing that it's also going to worsen the the plight of the Venezuelan people. So you have this rather ironic situation where in order to push the regime out the opposition to starting with measures that that will hurt their own people. You know at the moment, there's an alliance there. But it certainly, you know, it's certainly true that if the US follows through with its threat to begin to use military force to push the regime out, then the the the equation could change. I I think it's very important that this process and Venezuela be seen as you know, Venezuelans getting rid of victory will regime rather than as Americans coming in. And imposing a government that suits them will this work for. I do you think that? He he will be able to sort of assume power in in full or will Mr. Madero hang on in the long run. I think that's very very difficult to say it's clear that the pillars of support for this regime are crumbling. They've lost public support. They've lost international support except for a few few isolated countries. Like Russia and Turkey, even China is is kind of wavering. They're running out of cash, but unless you you begin to see real signs of defection within the armed forces. You know, this regime can this regime can go on. And there's no further indication that support for him within this sort of the higher echelons of the military is is crumbling at the moment. There's no such indication. You had the the defense minister saying a couple of days ago that the coalition arranged against the government would have to topple it over his dead body. The the army high command seems to be pretty solidly with Madero. So there's no real indication except for a few isolated cases of defense. Action that the army is going to desert the gene,

But I went to school and a lot of the things I was told were lies to that's true. Were they really doing anything that our education system doesn't do right now? My name's Chris in studio, we have Rich Paul and mean, and we've been discussing this story from the Chicago Tribune talking about ice setting up a fake, basically a fake university promising fake degrees with fake instructors. The only thing that weren't fake were the tuition bills that they sent to their students because you had to pay if you wanted to take part in this or work through and work through one of their recruiters. But before we do that I want to talk to Gilbert from Texas. He's calling us. Via the well. He's listening to us on the tune in Gilbert, or you're there, you're on free talk live. We can talk about any subject, right? Anything within FCC bound. So you can't put our radio stations in jeopardy. I see okay. I wanted to talk about because we've been debating me, and my political flames that they can't snap out of your political mind, the political party mind that I don't like what's going on in Venezuela. And what I wanted to say is that I knew first and foremost, I'm against socialism. I don't like socialism. I think it's deplorable. Me too. But what what what they're trying to replace it with is not something. I it's not a free market economy acquainted with big big banker international banker that create money out of nothing imperialism. Mhm? Okay, market economy. Also in Venezuela for listeners that aren't familiar the current president there? Maduro who is now claiming he's in his second term is being challenged by the opposition guy named Guido. I believe who is claiming he's the president. And he says he's got the the national assembly behind him while Maduro has the supreme court behind him. That's the conflict here. The thing that you may not be aware of is that Widodo is also a socialist. So I mean, you're just talking about replacing one flavor of socialist with another socialist one that's probably more in the pockets of the international bankers. Yeah. And we've talked about. Yeah. And. And I were discussing this. I guess it was on Saturday night show talking a little bit about that. And I cited with a caller who said that, you know, even though this is all transpiring down in Venezuela. And there is no doubt that socialism as crushed that country. I personally can't help. But believe that that the US seize opportunities where things are going awry. And it would not surprise me. If you've had some people either enticing by Guido to run, you know, maybe we'll back you things like that these this would not by any stretch be the first time that that the US has medaled in other countries. Elections more meddled in the in the economies of other countries. Well, here's what's going on. What's going on? They're putting sanctions which I like I said, I don't support them. But I I when you give me a choice between Bannon worse. I'm always gonna choose bad. And what's going on here is that that they're putting sanctions on him? And then the people that are putting sanctions on him and not letting him have access to the millions of dollars of money that he has a business here in Venezuela. Here in the US and other places strangling the economy, and these people that are strangling the economy are going to be rewarded for their bad behavior by blaming this it all on my own. Now. Remember these bankers out of China? And we know China's communist problem with China supporting communism, which is socialism kinds of thousand. But because China let them do what they want and they're fine with that with the really want is they want to take over Venezuela. Only the out can make money, and they wanna kind of capitalism, but it isn't capitalism. It's it's a total corruption. And it's it's like, oh, the Federal Reserve taking over our country here, and there are setting up a system where you can even criticize them in criticizing DVD the corner, you think because it conspiracy theories or whatever, and you don't want one of the things I told my Republican friends. I come look, I'm social what's going on over there, is it imagine. To raise the interest rate to ten percent and destroy the economy, and then everybody would be calling for Trump's head and everybody would be one. Would you like that? They would be blaming in. When with the big bankers fault for the economy. And that's exactly what's going on in Venezuela. I don't support I wish somebody with a working plan was going there that people could get rid competing. Is not what we have here. So there was something that he said was Gilbert is that right? Yeah. So I mean, you blame the sanctions for destroying their economy. And the sanctions are not good. I mean, there's no doubt that they are harmful to economy in their harmful to business because people even in oppressive regimes should be free to trade with people in the United States. So I think sanctions are definitely not good. But the reason why the economy is in the toilet has a lot more to do with with with what Medeiros policies have been of inflating the money supply and putting on price controls in taking over by force taking over a nationalizing industries. These are some of the main reasons why things are bad in Venezuela. It's not just sanctions, I I don't disagree with that. And and Madero pretty much followed the playbook. I mean, the socialist. Absolutely just just check check. Check check check. And then you get to this this spot where people die and countries fall apart. Gilbert, any final thoughts. Yeah. Let's face it with a free market economy. Let's not. Horrible. And I I agree with you. Something that's horrible with something. That's a thousand times worse. We we're gonna we're gonna give Venezuela and twist them into the the type of Federal Reserve international bankers. Well system we have both. We have our Abrahams all the players that have been murdering Latin America for the last. During the eighties.
