FROM THIS EPISODE

The staying power of Donald Trump is posing a threat to the Establishment of the Republican Party. So is the campaign of rightwing Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Which of the "outsiders" do the "insiders" hate most… or do the "insiders" still matter?

Later on the program, the collapse of military dictatorships and guerrilla armies have created spaces now filled by gangster warlords with massive power in Latin America. We hear some of their stories.

For GOP "Insiders:" Which "Outsider" Is Worse? 33 MIN, 59 SEC

The Republican Establishment in Washington is now holding its nose and warming up to the real estate mogul, Donald Trump. The distinctly half-hearted endorsement is based on hatred for Senator Ted Cruz and his frequent attacks on the leadership of his own political party. Conservative intellectuals are caught between a hard-right crusader who doesn’t want to do business and a deal-maker who probably will. As the battle continues for the “heart of the Party,” the voters have yet to be heard from.

The Men behind the Most Dangerous Cartels 9 MIN, 23 SEC

Gangster warlords are now dominant players in Mexico and other countries south of the border. "The collapse of military dictatorships and guerrilla armies left stockpiles of weapons and soldiers searching for new payrolls." That's according to Ioan Grillo, investigative reporter and author of the new book Gangster Warlords: Drug Dollars, Killing Fields and the New Politics of Latin America. Grillo discusses how crime goes together with politics and culture.
