"Got back sin ated and just came down with Covid for the second time, along with influenza, A Yeah, I can't really respond to the influenza. Say I influence that. That's completely separate thing. Uh, however, you can't get it a second time quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens has had it twice. Uh, covid back of infection. Now we do have something Lisa called breakthrough. And so people who are fully backs and made it like Jimbo and I Probably not Jimbo, now that he's had the third one, But for me who's just had to I could still get a mild case of Covid. We call it a breakthrough now in places where it's not really a serious outbreak. Right now. It's about one in 5000. Okay, that are getting that in places where it's really kind of mild outbreak right now, in certain parts of us, it's only one in 10,000 who have been vaccinated that get this. The main thing is that it's a very mild case. If you get one of these breakthrough cases, in most cases, there's always a few exceptions, but All of what I am Glad to hear that President Biden is trying to push through is all health care workers should be vaccinated. I can't believe that people want to work in the healthcare industry or in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They really need to be vaccinated to protect the people. They're caring for, whether they're picking their food or caring for the people. So I really hope and I'm shocked about how many health care workers today are not vaccinated. I actually find that kind of shocking. It is rather bizarre. 18665 Jimbo 1866554626 more calls for Randy Larson from the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in just a moment..

"Welcome back Jimbo Hanako at 18665, Jimbo 1866554626. The case of General Mark Milley is far from over. There will be congressional testimony ahead and I would have to think that our guest Jim Hanson is right that he will be considered at some point a hot potato and will be quietly told that it's time for you to resign now and go forth, write a book and get 50 grand a pop on the lecture circuit. That's why I guess it's called punishment Lives. Calls in from Slingerlands, New York. Hello, Liz. Hi. Good evening, Jim. And it's Jim. The other Jim is Right? Yes, indeed. Yes. Jim Hansen. That's correct. Right? I have a question Are you are either of you familiar with the Los Angeles Times article. From this justice path Wednesday. China is purging celebrities and tech billionaires. But the problem is purging them. Did he say. Yes, Trying to it. What? What way? I mean, what are they? What are they doing? Are they taking their money? Kicking them out of their positions of authority? What exactly are they doing? To quote? Purge these people? Well, Jim, I started to read it and then I got I'm all right. I'm an older person, okay? And I'm very upset with what is going on. And there's just so much bad news. I can take But one night I asked my son what he If this was going to hurt his work, he said, that it's going to affect the whole world. It's what exactly is his work that might be affected by this. International shipping. Okay? Uh, There's celebrities of disappeared, people are disappearing. Uh, yeah, I see that. I found the article in question here. Apparently, these are Are these celebrities are Chinese. And according to this story in the Los Angeles time, Celebrity names are vanishing from the credits of Chinese TV shows. A feminist male idols called Sissy Boys, apparently in China have been vilified. Tech moguls have been urged to donate billions of dollars to philanthropy and kids have gone back to school with new rules banning foreign textbooks and requiring more classes on the ideology of the leader. Xi Jinping. So I see the story. I'm not sure quite how it relates to what we're talking about. But it, uh, it does sound as though uh, Jim Henson. It sounds as though uh, Chinese President Xi is, uh, having delusions of mounts a tongue in a way. Yeah, It's an element of a burgeoning cultural revolution, which would be horrifying but not obviously unprecedented. And I think that's one of the dangers that that I think most Americans don't understand is China is not a normal country. China is a communist, totalitarian state, and they are not about to allow anything that could undermine their authority. To grow popular. So when these celebrities you know, get to a point where they could, their voice could damage the goals of the Chinese Communist Party. They're going to disappear. You know, that's a longstanding totalitarian regime technique. Um, they will whitewash them from history. They will, you know, take their assets and they will move on from there. And I think that's something that unfortunately our own tech companies are helping them. Do Google and Twitter and Facebook and the rest jump when the Chinese Communist tell them to, and they helped airbrush history for them. And I think that's something we should pressure at least our own companies that have a better and More ethical way to doing business, and it's bad enough that we use things made by Chinese slave labor. But I mean the willingness of corporate leaders in this country a corporate whores as far as I'm concerned. To kiss the Chinese buttocks in search of getting access to that billion plus Chinese market is astounding. In my view, Thomason, Arcata, California Good evening. You lived in gym and to your guest, Jim. First of all, thank you. Both men for your service to the military. Thank you. I just had a question. This thing was the score on with Martin. Really? I think it should be court martialed. Now. The one. The president called the president of the Afghanistan right before the fall out if Biden head known about Millie's intentions, and vice versa. Could have sitting center are kind of sitting president ever be court martialed. That's my burning question. You know, court martial is A process that applies to people in the uniform military. The only thing you can do to a president Is to impeach and convict them. Okay. Thank you. Yes, sir. Absolutely. Jim Hansen. It occurs. We haven't actually asked you what exactly? The Security studies group does what one would find if they go to securities, part of the security studies dot org. We're think tank that specializes in information operations. So we have done both research and analysis and conducted operations in support of US strategic goals. In the information spaces, and that's less on the cyber side and more on the narrative side. All too often. Obviously, the media is biased against quality. Information about US goals, and it's difficult for the United States to get a fair shake. So we've tried to kind of level the playing field and provide analysis of that when, when the U. S government needs to find out what is being said, and what can be done to counter that 26 65 Oh, Jimbo are number 18665054626 and more with our guest Jim Hansen on the Bohannon show in just a moment.

And we've been talking with the sewage thinks of Pennsylvania and Randy Larson of the John Topkin Center for Health Security had almost finished his look at the various treatments out there, Randy Well, No, I just heard Well, I got head in there for the commercial. But with Sue, you know, anytime there's any therapeutic for anything, There's always some sort of risk. Of course, the best way to avoid that is to get the vaccines and Then there's very limited possibility. You would have to go in and get one of those. But the monoclonal antibodies are pretty safe and effective. I'm not familiar with the one that she mentioned. It wasn't for general. All right, um, Mark in the Charleston, South Carolina. Good evening, Agent. Thanks. Taking my call. Uh, I gotta quit. I had the I got both of shots. There. Are you February marks both five there. And I got covid diagnosed today. Four people in my house.

Well, obviously your doctor will be a prime on the list of advisers, but go ahead, Randy. Yeah, I would, uh, suggest you talk to your position. If it were me. I've had to Moderna shots. That's why I got if I got infected, I pretty sure I would go get that third one and You know one thing I sent to you earlier today, Jimbo. Jeff Bridges, most of us familiar with the great actor. Uh, you know, he November, He got to diagnosed with lymphoma and he's now the good news is he is in remission from that. And then he and his wife got covid and I got to give you a quote. About why I think it's a good idea to get the vaccine. That's why Jeff Bridges said. Covid about made cancer fight look like a piece of cake. Close quote. Um, now I want to tell you, Jeff Bridges said after he and his wife recovered, They went back and and, uh, Captain vaccine. So, uh, he kind of wishes he got it beforehand. But now I would say, Mark, go talk to your position. And, uh, sorry to hear about everybody in the household. They're big. Um, why have you got the shot, so hopefully you haven't very mild case. Indeed, indeed, Good luck to you. Mark Michael in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Thank you, Jim. Good evening, Randy Larson. Randy, I have a question and a preliminary question. Um, you had a long military career, So I assume you are growing retirement pay based on the knowledge any That's correct. Okay, so we know 32 years on active duty. Yep. Right. So before I go to my question We know that you are innocence under the thumb of the Biden administration. Oh, wait. Uh, well, let me ask you, Randy Point Blank has has Has the government threatened to take away your pension? As if they could do that, unless you toe the line. I think the only way they can do it if I were convicted of a felony, right exactly So regarding saying what I want to say, nobody tells me what to say, and that includes Johns Hopkins University or the National Defense University that I worked for anybody else except my wife. She still has some games over what I say, but certainly not the military. So now that we've determined that Randy is not a paid stooge, Do you have a serious question, Michael? Yes, I do. Here's the question because we had the top man in the Pentagon on this show. Uh, Robert, Uh Spalding, uh, who was in charge of watching? Of viruses coming out of China. He was the top man he reported directly to the Kim. Another joint case of staff. We can't find him with a search warrant now, but here's my question. The first one that that individual I don't remember ever talking with anybody by that name, but anyway, yeah. Eventually we're going to get to your second question. Fact company real fast. Okay, okay. Uh, so talking about watching viruses coming out of China? Do you know that we have sufficient security to say that these variants Are not being, uh, gained its function engineered ad infinitum to keep us dependent on the pharmaceutical industry for back, Okay. All right. Is there any indication that India the variants are being engineered Randy Yeah, The mother nature is done. Unfortunately, a really great job with which is what mother nature does with every virus variants. That's why every year you have to get a new flu shot. That's what viruses Yeah, that's true. That's true. Now there's still a great question about where the whole thing began. And a good friend of mine is the finishing up a report for the Senate Intelligence Committee. Hopefully, by the end of September, that's taken a real hard look at where this whole thing began. Because I'm not convinced. We know the answer to that yet, but regarding Michael's question of the variant. Nope. That's Mother nature doing that. Yeah, And yes, And there are a lot of questions, of course, as to where this this came from? Absolutely. And, uh, very good questions, which have so far had no answers. Lisa in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Good evening. Good evening. Um my question is If you've heard of this, I work in a facility. Where we work with a lot of the elderly, one of the cooks there. Came down with Covid. Recovered, Got back sin ated and just came down and covered for the second time, along with influenza, A Yeah, I can't really respond to the influenza saying influence they that that's completely separate thing. Um However, you can't get it a second time Quarterback for the Baltimore Ravens has had it twice. Uh, the polka dots of infection.

We call it a breakthrough now in places where it's not really a serious outbreak. Right now. It's about one in 5000. Okay, that are getting that in places where it's really kind of mild outbreak right now, in certain parts of the U. S. It's only one in 10,000 who have been vaccinated that get this.

I can't breathe, but people want to work in the healthcare industry or in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. They really need to be vaccinated to protect the people.

"Back to the gym Bullheaded Show 18665 Jimbo are number 1866554626 as we talked with former foreign correspondent for the Sunday Times of London and the Daily Telegraph and an award winning author as well. Toby Harnden, who has written first casualty published by Little Brown, and subtitled The Untold Story of the CIA Mission to avenge 9 11. Told me was explaining something that I think is often misunderstood about journalists as the half hour intervened and since the computer was about to cut us off. I did so early, but I wanted him to have a full Chance to explain. Yes, Journalists are by nature nosy. However, that does not mean that we are out to destroy national security so we can get a good story. Please continue what you were saying. Toby. Yeah. I mean, I think that, um it's important for A journalist, too. You know, I'm an American as well as a journalist. Um, we can see what happened on 9, 11 and other terrorist attacks. And so I don't want to do anything that's going to, um You know, helped America's enemies or make it more difficult for, um the United States to, you know, protect its citizens. Of course, part of this Kill, or you know the trick of being a journalist to recognize as you say, when somebody is just sort of covering their behind or when it when it's something genuine. Um, but, you know, in this case, 20 years we were and we now are out of Afghanistan. It was pretty much all history and you know, that was very much part of my pitch. When I was talking to people to say, you know. Hey, I think it's you know it's time to time to talk, because I think Americans And the rest of the world, you know, could could learn a lot in this story. You at one point talk about how the United States found a winning strategy only to abandon it, since many of us are searching for answers right now, what did you mean by that? Yeah. Now, listen. I mean, it's very easy 20 years right to sort of sitting in the armchair in, you know, Virginia to sort of, say, Oh, you know, I had the answer, and so you know, everything was difficult. And you know, I spent a lot of time in Afghanistan first went there in 2000 and six I was there at the height of the fighting in Helmand and south and in 2000 and nine and there was no easy answers. But I do believe that if we look at this early period that's covered. In first casualty. We had a small number. Of Americans on the ground, some British as well. British special forces were there, Um CIA, um intelligence and regional specialists and linguists. Elite special forces and CIA paramilitaries. And, of course, the awesome might of US air power, and that's sort of what made the difference. But it was an Afghan fight. The U. S. I don't believe who the U. S invasion in 2000 and one patient happened in 2000 and two. These were essentially advisors, um, going in small numbers to help. The indigenous Afghan resistance. The Northern alliance Afghans fighting against the Taliban, who were hosting foreigners, Al Qaeda, mainly Arabs. So, um, it was, uh, you know, we all know that the Afghan um you know, resist the invader, but we weren't the invaders in those in those early weeks. Now. Unfortunately, I think success led to sort of a degree of hubris and led the Bush administration of the time sort of believe that this was easy and let's move on to Iraq and change the regime there. I think what also happened was that rather than the light footprint of the devising and letting Afghans do do the fighting and work things out in their sort of You know, messy way, which is not the perfect sort of Western way of doing things. We essentially have an invasion of conventional troops pouring in in 2000 and two weeks stopped Hamid Karzai from doing a deal with the negotiations with the remnants of the Taliban, which might have Giving them a small role in government and we sort of moved to centralized nation building. Um and you know what we've seen unfolded unfold over the last 20 years. So I think, you know, I think if we stop to something close to those principles from the beginning Rather than going for this massive and nation building sort of exercise. Then things could have been very different. I think it is important for us to realize that in order for something that resembles a a free society, it requires that you have certain preconditions. A sense of nationhood would be one thing. And some practice of self governance. One thing that has always bothered me about American history is that we were taught basically that the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock in 16 20. Then came the Boston Tea Party. Well, there was 150 years in there that we know little about except, of course for the Salem witch trials. Not one of our happier episodes. But the point is, we had 100 and 50 years separated by an ocean back when that meant something, and largely the people back in London, let us alone as long as, uh uh, various products, tobacco and furs. And what have you were headed their way We had 100 and 50 years to get this right? And a society that has never had any experience that that may not do it so well, plus something else. We tend to think of freedom as being something which everybody yearns for. In point of fact, there are any number of societies that there were. People have never been prepared for freedom, and they actually find freedom and the choices that are available, somewhat intimidating. For example, there's some Russians that came here after the fall of the Iron Curtain, and they would go to a store and they would find 30, different mouthwashes and 30 different toothpaste, and they were used to go into stores in Moscow, where if they were lucky in the shelves were stocked. There was the mouthwash, the toothpaste. It's something as simple as consumer choices. Freedom is not necessarily a universally worshipped and adored, and I think that its board for us to remember things like that. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, I think it's a sort of natural..

"G b A c dot i s s a dot com and all anticipate what Some may tend to say there's a strong view point out that this whole thing is overblown. And that's already you've you've heard it all and so address those people if you would before we go to the break. Alright? Absolutely. You know, my son. Actually, both of my sons are surgeons And my youngest son is, uh, still in residency. He recently. Um they basically at the hospital system that he's at they residents. Even the surgical residents have to spend time in a covid unit, and what they're finding is that the majority of the individuals who are in serious condition are all non vaccinated. Um, They really thought that that way that you know, as this is overblown, and, um, once they get into that unit, they start asking for different, you know, they want they want to have that the vaccine. They wish they would have worn math. And it's very critically visible. When you see there are we have the ability to mitigation measures in place to be able to do it from our own behavior. To be able to mitigate this virus, but we have to bond together to get this done. 18665 Oh, Jimbo, is our number 1866554626 as we talk with Patty Olinger.

"Welcome back to the gym, Bohannon assured 18665 Oh, Jimbo 1866554626, Vicki Bell. Our guest has written the book. Reverse the course. And we're taking a look. At Some studies that indicate that there are differences between men and women in dealing with mental health issues. There was a study in 2016 found that more than 75% of respondents. Male respondents indicated they would feel disappointed in themselves or inadequate around other people if they were depressed, and the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention reports that in 2019 Men were more than 3.5. Times more likely. Than women to die by suicide. So there is a gender difference here. Thomas in Arcata, California joins us Hello, Thomas. Hi, Jimbo. Uh, And to your guest, Mickey. Um I called you a while back about, uh, Was between jobs and I. I picked up a buddy of mine. We went to work up in Vail. This was in Colorado. I came back a week later. And my wife had moved. My neighbor tried to stop me from going in my house that I just bite. I have two kids. And that has been a mental As Mickey put it, haunting. For the last 25 years, and I'm really having a hard time dealing with it after all these years, and I just wanted some insight. Absolutely, Mickey. Thomas Mann. I feel for you. I hate that you've had to go through that. When I went through some tragic moments in my life. It was very important for me to find someone that I could talk with. Mine started when I was 13 years old and my mom and dad sent me down. And they explained to me that I was adopted at birth. They said that when my dad found out that my mother was not going to abort me that he took off Was raised in a very strict Christian home where we would pray about everything but don't talk about him. Think And so I ended up taking all of my emotions and all of my thoughts in that moment. And I just started pressing it down on the inside. And I didn't talk about it. I didn't deal with it. I made some tragic decisions. For my marriage at age 40. That calls me to hit rock bottom. When I hit that rock bottom, That's when all of those emotions That I had been dealing with since 13. Came out. Any encouragement I could give to you would be find you someone that you can trust. And start dealing with the thoughts you're having. And start getting those emotions out again. I know that for man, as the study suggests, it's very difficult for us to talk about things. It's very difficult for us to be open. But just you calling this show tonight and opening up a little bit and what you have done? That's a perfect example of the steps that you need to take to make sure that you get the help that you need. It's not to admit that you're weak. It's not to admit you're sick. It's simply just to deal with what life has thrown at you in this moment, and so I would suggest finding someone that you could go sit down and talk with, uh, just someone that can help you deal. With the emotions you're having, but also deal with a live That you may be tempted to sell yourself. Because when your face with some of the things that you've just described to us Then it's very tempting for your mind to start telling you things like what was wrong with me. Why was I not enough? Was you know was I'm not good enough. Well, I ever be good enough for somebody else. And if you start having those thoughts, then that's exactly what I'm talking about. And the fact that we need to deal with those thoughts, sports going to take you down further road that you don't want to go down. So just follow the steps that you have taken just in calling the show and finding someone in your area that you can just go in and just deal with what you're feeling. Deal with what you're thinking. Get it out in the open. Expose the lies that you're telling that you may start believing on yourself. And go ahead and handle it and get a hold of it now. So that way you don't have to deal with it later on down the road. Good luck to you, Thomas. Good luck to you. And do follow that advice. There is hope for you. There is a life for you. And you should unencumbered yourself. Here's Mike in Denver. Good evening bike. Good evening, Mr Rouhani. And thank you for taking my call. And Mickey. Thank you So much for the conversation tonight. I really appreciate it. Um, I can really relate to this. Actually, I actually lost a cousin to depression back in 2000 and 14. And you know me myself. I've kind of struggled with anxiety for most of my life. Uh, you know, I'm 25 years old now and you know when we say Well, what is anxiety, you know? I mean, like, right now, you know, we're talking on some of the biggest radio stations in the world in the United States at least, and you know it's about you know there's anxiety there, but I think it's about how we deal with those emotions. Right And that goes with depression or anything else. And I'm always so amazed at how you know Mr Rohan is so confident on the radio and doesn't let that anxiety get to him ever but You know my question. Maki. I wanted to ask you because, you know, right now we're kind of it in all time high, you know, with depression, you know, kind of due to Covid 19 and other things. Um Do you think that we're essentially doing enough as a society to kind of address depression? Mike. That's a great question. First of all, sorry for your loss and that that you're having to go through. Um The thing that we're doing right now on this program is exactly what we need to be doing in our society and exposing that depression and disposing Mental illness and just admitting that we have some people that are dear to us that are suffering. You brought up the covid situation. It did bring on additional anxieties. Simply Bacall's. If you go to get help with anxiety over depression, the first thing they're going to work with you and doing is getting you some structure in your life. I'm the top person. I'm not good with changes. I'm not good with surprises. Now I'm good with a surprise birthday party, but I'm not good with just being taken off guard. By some news. And so when Covid started happening, it calls everything around us to become unstable. For those of us that deal with depression and anxiety. We are already fighting. To live stable in our unstable mindset, so throw an entire world of instability and that's causing us to have to dig deeper. Put our feet in the sand a little harder, fight a little harder just to be able to get through the thoughts and emotions and I'm telling you, it has played has wreaked havoc on a lot of people just simply for the insecurity of knowing what's coming in the future. Points Well made and thank you for your call. And your listenership. Mike. I'm glad that I have fooled a lot of people there thinking that I am impervious to anxiety. No, I'm well aware of the fact that like anybody else who talks on the radio or spends records or what have you that I am here at the behest of, uh, people who are my superiors, my employers and if I don't perform that I am out of here and so far, I guess I've performed well enough, but I'm aware of it. But again. I've tried not to let it affect my performance. But of course to to let it affect my performance would automatically make me more likely to go. Back in a moment, Save.

"You've got wind damage and you know tornadoes are agnostic as to where they dropped down as they can drop down in a flood prone area and they could drop down in an area that's never seen water. That's a different kind of damage. And I think that a lot of insurance companies cover that as as really is telling us about, Uh, let's talk to Chuck in Greenwood, South Carolina. Hello, Chuck. Hello. Are you sure to say? Enjoy your show for the most part, But I got to disagree on people just needing to move from low lying areas if they don't want to get flooded out, because There's a lot of people that don't have anything to move with. Well, that's that's why I say, I think that the government ought to help them move. I have no problem with helping people move who can't afford to move. I have a serious problem with subsidizing them to stay there so that we can continue to pay them. Year after year after year. I'm just not in favor of subsidizing stupidity, but if they can't afford to move I think the the state or the feds owe it to them to help them. Move, Chuck. Until a certain faction of, uh Politics in this country doesn't want to do anything about the climate change issue this in our face with these ever ramping up storms. Oh, that are all this 100% attributed to global warming. Now some storms happen anyway. The extent to which they are attributable to global warming, of course, is part of a great National debate and so on and so forth, But it's not really our subject tonight. But in terms of helping such people, John Wisniewski, uh, I I think absolutely, for people such as Chuck described who can't afford to move? I mean, if the government is going to complain about that we owe it to help them move. I have no problem with that. Well, Jim. I think that's one of the reasons why people have continued to live in the areas they've lived in because they have nowhere else to go. They don't have the resources to move and I think that's a very good point. That if we want to stop Repeating the same cycle over and over again, then the program ought to be instead of paying money to rebuild in the same spot. Let's take that money and let's relocate to a better spot that is not going to fund that is not going to be subject to a year in and year out the damage that we're all things for. I think that We have to change as a nation. How we look at these things we have to recognize, as the caller said, you know, with with with climate change, this is only going to get worse. And if we not proactive doing something about it now, It's just going to cross a lot more in the future. Here's Paul in Zanesville, Ohio. Hello, Paul. Good evening, Jimbo.

Here. We prepare house off. We're not too far from that. We can see the light in the tunnel. But have you ever had a scientific nerve act up on you? I don't know if that you have, or you know your listeners out there. Well, for those who are not familiar with that particular nerve. What does that have to do with our conversation? Paul? Well, I'm getting there. Um, if you know what's going to happen inevitably. So my wife wants to be moved down there. But I'm not going to because you know what are the cost of the insurance to move down there? You know you're going to get a hurricane, You know, sooner or later, So I want to move Maybe a little more to the Midwest. Something like that. But these people in the east coastal state to understand a lot, and they just don't have the resources. Well, now that we should help them with the resources Yeah, I mean, look, yes, They live in a very nice area and when there's no storms, it's it's a beautiful view, and it's a great place to live. But the problem is That when these storms come in their homes are destroyed. People are killed. We love to live by Iowa bodies of water, and that's why you'll find coastal areas. Myrtle Beach, certainly all down through Ah, Georgia and Florida and north into North Carolina and Virginia. You'll find coastal areas like that just filled with people. We understand what people want. People also want to lose weight on the Haagen Daz diet. Sometimes people want things that are not not terribly sensical 18665 Oh, Jimbo, 1866554626 and back in a moment. Switching to Geico is a good idea, especially when you consider everything. First off Geico makes it easy to switch. They have licensed agents available 24 7 online or over the phone, But if it's so easy, you might start thinking.

"18665. Oh, Jimbo 1866554626. This pandemic is hanging on. As we take some of your calls at 18665 Oh, Jimbo 1866554626. We're talking with Patty Olinger and infectious disease expert executive director. Of the global Bio Risk Advisory Council as we go to some calls Is it possible or even likely that Uh, covid. 19 will wind up being like the flu that is to say, yeah, it kills a lot of people, but we we get used to it. Let's face it. The flu takes a toll every year, but we're used to it just like car accidents. We're used to it. No, but we weren't used to. Is it likely that we're going to get used to it? And every year we'll have to get with our flu shot a covid shot or maybe you'll even be in the same shot. To update us on the latest variations. We all know about the flu, of course, your garden variety flu, which I guess was the the ancestors of what happened in 1918. Your garden variety flu changes a little bit every year, and every year they changed the flu shot. And they hope they get it right is covid going to be around in the in that kind of, uh of capacity in perpetuity? We don't know yet, but I think that when, when I talked to some of my colleagues, that's one of the things that they're concerned about is that it becomes basically what we would call endemic and that just as you just described just like the flu every year, it may maybe we're different dealing with a different what we called variant. And that we have to have our boosters once a year. Uh, we just don't know yet And so unfortunately, we're still in the weight with the I guess there are about 30,000 car deaths every year in this country, and no one is suggesting that we could even survive without vehicular traffic. How many people die of your garden variety flu every year that we sort of shrug off because It happens. It depends upon the year every year is a little different, obviously, because of the different variants that are out there and what our flu shots and we had, how well it is, you know, prepared for the flu that we actually have. Waiting. It's anywhere between 30 and 80,000 Deaths, 30 and 80,000 every year and again and again. I know the fact that Okay, we accept that. I mean, nobody. Nobody gets squirrely about it. I just, you know, note that a lot of this is expectations. And in the Covid hadn't entered our our realm of expectations yet. So, you know, I think that Yeah, it's the other thing is that this may have, you know, I guess maybe made us a little bit more aware of it. Even the flu, right? Uh, realizing that we didn't have many flu deaths are last year. It was because of a lot of the things that we were doing, you know, washing our hands social distancing during the basically through season and I'm cleaning interest infecting services. The high touch points and so Uh, we've we've protected a lot of people from dying from the flu this last year. Let's talk to Wendy in coastal North Carolina. Hello, Wendy. Hello, Mr Bowen. And I'm so thankful you took my call, and I respect you and all of your guests. Um, A second caller talked few couple years ago after Florence But anyway, I'm real quick. I'll let you go. But I just wanted to encourage people to do their homework. Get on websites. There are so many unanswered questions and so many unanswered. Um you know, people are people are living in fear. I don't watch television. I listen to radio reputable, reputable radio like you, um and many other reputable stations. I try to get all my information. Um, I have been Differentiated in many different ways, because I haven't gotten quote shot. Um only because I'm concerned I'm not this crazy person who is an anti-vaxxer. I am 57 years old. I ride my bike every day. I'm very fortunate that I'm healthy and I live on the coast. I try to eat, right? I don't want to talk too much here, but I just encourage people to do their homework. I don't watch mainstream media. They I have friends and family who have they hate me. Um, they just think I'm They just hate me because I haven't gotten the shot and and that's okay. Well, they shouldn't hate my life. Well, No, they a lot of them. Hate me, Jim. Well, I know I I don't doubt it. I'm simply saying that they should not. They should not hate you. I'd like our guest to respond. Patty. Pardon me, Wendy. Is one of those people, uh, who was not obviously among those who believe that you take the shot and they'll inject a computer chip into that lets the government control your mind or Or the vaccine was made from aborted fetal tissue. There are a lot of just utter nonsense that makes the rounds out their petty, Uh Wendy in coastal North Carolina is not one of those people she has concerned she has questions. Any answers for people like Wendy? Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, Wendy, There's no doubt you know, I'm projecting And I'm you know, especially with this covid pandemic that we're experience right now, you know the pharmaceutical companies that have been out there, you know, they really have if you look at what they've done And the research that has been done have done a tremendous amount of research and the if you think about how many people have received that vaccine and the very, very low rate of Of adverse what they call every reaction. Um, it's we're at a point now, especially now, with the fighters being completely approved by the FDA. It's one of it's a very safe vaccine. Now that being said Obviously you have the choice not to take it or not. But my recommendation to you would be understand what those other non pharmaceutical interventions or what they what they what they are to you wearing your mask. You know, keeping your distance washing your hands. And paying attention when you're into public spaces, especially public where there's a lot of people, you know, making sure that you are in control of your your area, And if you think you might have been exposed You know, stay away from other people who may be very vulnerable. Who can't get the vaccine but want to get it and are, you know, maybe Immuno compromised. I too have, uh, firmly in favor of people getting the vaccine. I've gotten every shot I can get. Uh And will continue and get more as circumstances may so so indicate, you know, I think we should keep in mind. Nothing is perfect. The idea of holding anything vaccines or anything else to perfection. I mean, obviously, as we know, at the moment of automobiles are not perfect, 30,000 or so people die every year from them in this country. We don't talk about banning automobiles. Perfection is a Human goal. It is not attainable and a lot of the risk factors I gather Patty Olinger associated with this vaccine are in the category of, uh uh, your risk of getting eaten by a shark or your risk of getting hit by lightning. Oh, absolutely. And from my medical friends, you know the doctors out there that I've talked to that actually have been working in some of these units. Um, yes, getting this virus and getting very ill. The serious illness, which we know the vaccine protects against. And that protects better than virtually any vaccines in history. Yeah..

"Oh, Jimbo 1866554626 as we begin some remembering of 9 11 with the story that many of us Couldn't even forget. We were not really aware of what happened at the story of the book, First Casualty, the Untold Story of the CIA mission to avenge 9 11, it was told by a person used to telling such stories. A former foreign correspondent for The Sunday Times of London and the Daily Daily Telegraph. He's an award winning author Toby Harnden with us tonight, and so the team Alpha is there and they They are being pretty successful. But then you write the Taliban hatches applaud with Al Qaeda to hit back. They fake a surrender. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, and one of the sort of chilling things about this period was, although it was successful in Taliban regime was toppled, a lot of the sort of complexities and the kind of messy nature of Africa Afghanistan really came through. So that kind of The seeds. Really of of some of the problems that would come in in subsequent years. So yeah, Mazar e Sharif, Um the, um Northern City had had fallen was the first big city too. To be taken from the Taliban. And then it looks like the Taliban were staging a sort of a last stand in the north in Konduz, and you have Al Qaeda units that work that we're working with the Taliban. One of the members of those Al Qaeda units was John Walker Lindh, California And there was a surrender. Brokered, um, between the Taliban and the Northern Alliance, and Abdul Rashid cost him and, uh, it turned out that it was sort of an Afghan tradition to not search people properly. There was sort of elements of the honor in the in the surrender. That these Al Qaeda prisoners were not Afghans. They were mostly Arabs, and it emerged later on that many of the prisoners had had secreted grenades and guns you know in in their robes. And Mullah Fazal, who was a notorious Taliban commander who is likely to be helped figure in the new Taliban government. Um it seems that he was the mastermind behind this plot that these prisoners would, um, surrender surrender in Mazari Sharif, while most of the U. S forces And the CIA and the Northern Alliance. We're in Konduz and that they would stage an uprising in the port. And there were other other Taliban units who were moving towards matter. E Sharif and Potentially if it's this uprising succeeded, and it came pretty close. Then the Taliban would have recaptured Mazar e Sharif, and the whole story of this war would have been different. So it was kind of fascinating to be able to put that together. I mean, at the time, it sort of seemed like it was in sort of a random, spontaneous revolved by prisoners. But I was able to establish by, you know Talking to everybody and and research missing. It's great that this was this was a plan to take to take back Mazar e Sharif. Yeah, the the idea that you talk to everybody you're talking to people who do not. As a rule of thumb tend to talk shop. They are not people who tend to run off at the mouth a great deal. I'm wondering how you got all these people to do just that, and the extent to which the CIA itself was involved, either helping or hindering your efforts. Uh, that's good question. Yes. Well, it wasn't easy. I had no, you know, particular in with anybody else, Certainly not the CIA. Um, but I'd always been fascinated by this story for many, many years since I saw footage of favorite Tyson running Through the fort after Mike Spann. His comrades have been killed for clutching a pistol. Um and I eventually tracked David Tyson down. I think it was in 2013. Through. Keep been cited in a in an acknowledgement by an academic in Indiana University in my contact with the academic and you put me in touch with them, and it turned out that David was living in Vienna, Virginia, just a few miles from from where I live now. It's a suburb of Washington for those who don't know. That's right. Yeah. Yeah, let's glamorous than Vienna, Austria. Um, anyway, so I met a I met David in a Panera bread and he was friendly, but he couldn't say very much because he was still serving in the agency. And we sort of kept in touch. You know, he's spending Christmas cards, but you know, there was he wasn't really, you know, emerging to sort of tell a story. But then, um, at the beginning of last year, he contacted me and said, Hey, you know, I've just retired. I'm ready to talk. And so I talked to him and he's a fascinating guy. I mean, a. You know, regional experts, somebody who's sort of really lived. After making life and who's likely sort of about, you know, turned upside down by the event in 2000 and one. Um, but I then went to J. R. Seeger, who was the chief Justin Sap, who was a green beret. He's still serving. And they were sort of semi public and I went to see them and I just I think I built up sort of trust and credibility. They could see that I didn't have an agenda. As I just wanted to find out what happened. And, Yeah, I was worried about the CIA. I was thinking that they might try to hinder me down. They might block me so I didn't approach them until I was sure that I had enough to write a book. Um, And at that point, I've spoken to George Tenet that The director at the time, because the black hand Crumpton sort of senior CIA officers and again I think they realized that you know I was I was serious. And so I contacted the agency and said, Hey, this is what I'm doing. And they helped me. I mean, they didn't open the vaults. I didn't get Documents for the morning. I dare say they're going to take some interviews, and, um, I was surprised and very grateful, because you know some of these people. They're still contractors. It's sort of taken, you know, sort of a vow almost secrecy, and they wouldn't have spoken if the agency hadn't have given them the green green light so that that enabled me to sort of complete research. And talk to really everybody. I think he was involved in this bowl disclosure for those who don't know, and I'm sure many of the audience do, but I had a a top secret plus security clearance and in Vietnam, So I've been on both sides of this particular issue. And I'm aware of the not only the the hyper tendency, let's say to keep things secure, which In many cases is very justified, but also another Tennessee and that is to use the classified stamp to cover your but, uh and that happens on on more than one occasion. I've seen things that were stamped secret. There were hardly more than than mess Hall menus. Uh, I'm sure you've.

"At Jimbo talks, and we're gonna be talking in this portion of the program a bit about those vaccine boosters and doing so with Dr Robert La Vita. He's also known as Dr Bob. He is a clinical professor of medicine at the Rutgers, New Jersey Medical School at position author And researcher and, uh Dr Bob Or whichever you prefer, Dr Lahiri to which do you prefer? Dr Bob would be great, Jim. All right. Very, very good. Doctor. Bob, tell me your thoughts about, uh, the great national discussion about these vaccine boosters. Well, I think the boosters are quite interesting, and I think it's based on data which may or may not be true. And the reason I say that is because it's really based on data that's incomplete. Mostly from Israel. The Israeli data really showed that immunity decreases over time, and that six months after the second vaccine shot in the case of those two messenger RNA Immunizations that six months after that, the neutralizing antibody. Those are the proteins against the viral, uh, despite protein that they decrease Amount Now. They did not look at cellular immunity, which is another arm of the immune system. And they found that the delta variant in particular this is in Israel now broke through the vaccinations. So they They said that the vaccine in Israel now helps when patients have bad disease over 60 years of age, and those with comorbidities like congestive heart failure, diabetes. Chronic obstructive lung disease. All these bad things, including obesity, by the way, where these patients have, like one leg under them, and they are bound not to do well when infected by the Delta virus. Especially if they are unvaccinated. But here the Israelis are talking about the vaccinated. So this created a storm of interest in the fact that and that we've heard criticism of fighter and criticism of more done it regarding those are the two messenger RNA vaccines. That's right, and them getting involved because they have a financial incentive, obviously to have a booster shot, so Israel is the first country to give booster shots. And this is a very interesting thing. Um, the 78% of the population of Israel is vaccinated so 58% of their citizens. Have received two of these vaccinations and, of course, people aged 12 to 20 for the most part, our deepest sea and have somewhat refused to be vaccinated and also refused to get a booster shot when in fact, those people Who got the first two shots are challenged and asked to take a third shot. So what we're being asked to do in this country is considered and boost your shot. Uh, September 20th. And right now I am told that the booster shot in. My patients have tested this because they're calling me every day asking me if it's an okay thing. The booster shot is available for those with bad co morbidity such as transplants. Auto immune diseases, those on cancer, chemotherapy and those in general who have co morbidity that would otherwise cause their death. So, so that's the state of the booster shot and then in a lump sum, I understand the booster shots are just another second dosage is if that's what I was told. That is to say the For example, the The third Moderna shot is identical to the second Moderna shot. Right, right. And basically it does exactly what you would expect it to do. It's not an altered vaccine that is directed specifically against the Delta variant. It is a second shot that is destined to boost what we in the sciences called adaptive immunity and adaptive immunity means your immune system's already recognizing the anti gym in this case. The Covid spike protein. So what you're doing is you're getting another zap to make your immune system perked up and the respond against the spike protein that the messenger RNA is coding for In your body. Is there going to be a need for 1/4 or fifth or sixth? Is this going to become like the annual flu shot? Well, I did say that about eight months ago, I thought that this virus would become endemic, and that means that the virus will be around with us forever. And if that's the case like influenza, it may change its coat dearly, and if it does alter its structure or its ability to cause or wreak havoc in the body. It may be that we will have to have an annual booster like we do the flu vaccine. So it it may become just an annual, uh Uh, pain in the neck, if you will. I mean we will be I mean, people. I mean, you know, you know the flu, I guess in this country really? The flu hit us really the hardest About a century ago. The The massive flu that was spread principally by soldiers returning from World War one. And since that time, we've been getting variations on that, and that's one thing about about viruses. They mutate very rapidly. In fact, I've heard the question debated whether or not viruses are actually alive. Are they just a very complicated molecule? Or are they a living organism? They're not a living organism as far as our definitions of what constitutes a living organism. These are particles and they're very interesting and so far as they use the human body and probably also animals like the pangolin and maybe the bat. To really, uh, develop and replicate. Now they replicate they cannot replicate by end of themselves without a host and the host in this case happens to be us. So the virus is a particle that gets in and uses the cell's machinery to make replication or copies of itself. One of the things that you have to remember. And I remember this when I was back in graduate school was the tobacco mosaic virus, which is one of the first viruses to be studied extensively by a guy named Wendell Stanley. He crystallized the virus. Now living things don't crystallize as a rule, but viruses and such can crystallize if enough mass is obtained. And the right conditions, so it is not alive. It's not like a bacterium or parasite or worm, or, you know some other organism that lives on or within us. It is a particle but a very nasty one and a very, very clever one. And it largely new tapes based on the fact that it inhabits people who have no immune response. Those who are unvaccinated for the most part 18665 Oh, Jimbo, are number 1866554626. I've heard people say things along the lines of well. Germs, viruses little tiny thing. Same same, and I've also heard people of greater knowledge. Say, Uh, if you're talking about size here than a germ is a battleship and a virus is a canoe. Yeah, that's right. Very well. Put. Your right and a germ meaning of bacteria is very large when you look at it and compare it next to a virus or very on as the official terminology is one Barry on You're right. It's a little microscopic. You can't even see it with the light microscope. You have to go to an electron microscope, which looks at being at 150,000 magnification. Bacterium. You can see under a light microscope. A parasite you can see under and you know, like a worm or an amoeba. You can see under a light microscope but a virus. You can stay with us more to come. 18665 Oh, Jimbo 1866554626 boy who would have thought A year and a half ago. We'll be having topics like this.

"After 20 years, Every single U. S service member is now out of Afghanistan. General Frank McKenzie, who heads US Central Command, says the withdrawal has ended and with it the military mission that began shortly after 9 11 Air Force transport planes Ferried the final troops out of Kabul after a chaotic, too weak evacuation of civilians. McKenzie says some 6000 American citizens were pulled out, but some were left behind. We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out a final chapter to a war likely to be remembered for colossal failures and the deaths of more than 2000 Americans. The Taliban celebrated the departure with gunfire after driving the world's most powerful military out of their homeland. Soccer Megane Washington. Well, I would make a distinction in that regard. Quote Driving us out is hardly the case. We decided to leave. Uh, we were hardly driven out, but I'm sure that's the narrative that will be written. We're talking with the Lieutenant Jason Redman. He is a retired Navy seal. And, uh, He has joined us tonight. He's the best selling author as well and we'll talk about, uh, his memoir, The Trident. We in particular. Want to talk about a group called the The Pineapple Express and Lieutenant Redmond. Thank you for being with us tonight. Timbo honored to be on Thanks for having me. Thank you very much. What is the Pineapple Express? For those who have not heard about this? Pineapple Express or Task Force. Pineapple is a group of special operations. Uh, a former intelligence and even some of our members of the spy community that got together and basically said You know what's happening here is not right. So many of the individuals that we worked with these incredible Afghan allies that we served with time and time again on the battlefield who risked their lives for us. It even saved us providing information even fighting alongside us. Um, you know, President Biden promised them that he would bring them home. And when that did not occur, Uh Lieutenant Colonel Scott Mans, the founder of the Task Force, Pineapple or the Pineapple Express, They said, you know what? We're going to lean on our own networks. We're going to lean on their experiences. We have unique skills and we know how to use them. And he basically created a virtual underground railroad mechanism called the Pineapple Express, and they managed to get out our first individual out of Karzai International Airport. And from there, we said, You know what? Let's Let's keep going and I joined shortly after that, and to date, we have managed to get out. Over 650 Americans, Afghan allies, interpreters, numerous VIPs and and we're not done as a matter of fact. Now the real work begins because we still have Americans and we have thousands. Anywhere up to 80,000 Afghans who are received special immigrant visa status, who are now trapped behind enemy lines. Now you folks are acting in a private capacity. I do believe you all have great military experience. But I don't believe you have any of the official military infrastructure behind you. Would I be correct in that regard you are acting As private individuals, highly trained private individuals but private individuals nonetheless. You are correct. We are Operating on our own, although not without trying. We have reached out on all sides to try and get this, this current administration, our Department of state, the government and the military to get involved. And you know, they give some lip service to it. But unfortunately, it appears they are unable or unwilling to make things happened and we just said, um, you know the promise was made and we're going to honor that promise. So people can help by going operation recovery dot org right now, because we're moving on to the next phase, the recovery phase where it gets much more difficult to do this. What is it that you wind up doing in terms of, uh, getting these people out? I assume it involves the EU again, not as official agents of the U. S government, presumably without any support. From the U. S government will get into that in a moment here, but at private citizens essentially infiltrating a foreign country and engaging in actions, which Shall we say, Uh, entirely, uh, un supported and, uh and, uh, unauthorized That is correct. But once again, we're honoring the promise and for you know, most of us are not on the ground. As a matter of fact, As far as Americans go, we have very few, uh other than individuals that might have already been there. Beyond that it is we are using our networks. We are using our relationships with individuals on the ground and all around the world. So many people say, Well, how many people are in task Force pineapple? And our reply as we're all task force pineapple. We are all over the country. We're all over the world. We are individuals who are leveraging our unique skills and networks. And that's how we're making this happen were, you know Basically utilizing technology and creativity to be able to move these individuals out, and I hope that if you're out there, and I hope that, if any, our government officials, uh, you know for us, it's not about the right. It's not about the left. It's about that. We will leave no man behind and we will continue to work. And we really hope that at some point the government will say You know what we need to do the right thing we need to help them. We need to get these people home. We need to honor that promise we made to them. Amen to that. We'll continue with more at 18665, Jimbo. Our number 1866554626 with retired Navy feel Lieutenant Jason Redman.

And to learn more about, uh, the doctor Bob Show here but later on, But right now I call from Brian in the Ozark, Missouri. Hello, Brian. Okay. We go to Gina in Valdosta, Georgia. Good evening. Um, General, I have a question for the doctor. Um where's the dog? This very strong bloodlines had a very big bold out and he was very sick one time, and the vet said that he would not have made it. Had his blood. I've not been so strong, but, um he's a big bulldog. And what was he sick of? I'm just add. Is that you? You brought it up? What? What was what was wrong with him? Well, eventually, I'm not sure what it was but similar to like parvo, but he survived it, and everybody stayed at the vets for like 10 days. But any help? That was a couple years ago. Now his nose was running rough sex. He's a sergeant doesn't want to play and he could tell he was just sitting silver the laid in his cage, but we took him to the vent. They gave him and the antibiotic. Okay. Came home a little better take them back and gave another child of antibiotic came back and still didn't want to player got, uh and Right? Um, the third time they gave him some kind of a different shot that they said this. We're going to try this right now. He seems to be doing a little better. But the sickness and his nose like she couldn't get it out of his nose, right? I'm wondering if your dog could catch carry coverage. All right. Interesting question. Of course. Dr. Bob is not a doctor of veterinary medicine. But and it doesn't sound as though Your dog has a has symptoms that would necessarily relate to this. For the record. Do we have any examples of, uh of covid 19 impacting other than humans? Uh, we do Covid 19 does, in fact, particularly some of the mammals like minks. You may remember that in Denmark, A couple of million minks were destroyed last year because of an infection of Covid 19, which went right through the whole The whole I guess you could call it a herd. Of mink owners, and there's actually a shortage of Meeks right now because of Covid infecting them Now, as far as dogs go, I am told that I am told by the vets and I'm not a veterinarian, so I'm not I can't really speak to this that they do not carry covid or coronavirus. The kind that infects us Now. One thing I might say that is of some interest to the lady that just called from, I guess. Valdosta, Georgia. Was that the bet used antibiotics to treat what he thought. Or she thought was a viral infection. And that's a no No. Now maybe the third shot they gave the dog was for viral infection, But viruses and bacteria are two different things. And you cannot treat a viral infection with an antibiotic. And that's one of our big problems in this country and probably in other parts of the world as well. You don't want to give antibiotics to knock out the microbiome of the bowel, For example, when you're dealing with vaccine Which require or need the biomom to be effective. And so unwarranted Use of antibiotics has been a big problem in this country. It has resulted in resistant bacteria. It has resulted in a lot of problems that are, uh, unfortunately, my colleague Promulgate. And these are doctors who should know better and treat viral infections with antibiotics that are strictly designed to treat bacteria and parasites. Fair enough. Fair enough. Fair enough.

Yeah. The J and J. People actually came out last week and said their booster is great. They're booster will protect you from the delta. If I'm looking at my data year about 85 to 90% So J and J is not being left in the dust. In fact, if I had to get a vaccine right now, I'd probably get to J and J and get the J and J booster in about eight months. Interesting. Uh, how different Thank you for your call. By the way, Eric. How different is that? The J and J. Single shot vaccine from the two messenger RNA. Double shot vaccines. Moderna advice Well, There's all kinds of parameters you're using here. Now.

It's not been approved by the FDA, the only one approved by the FDA so far as the fighter bio intact. Vaccine being, you know that Jenny J vaccines totally different. It's not a messenger RNA. It's what we call a viral vector vaccine. It uses a harmless virus called an adenovirus, which is derived believe it or not from chimpanzees. I know that the anti-vaxxers go nuts when I say that, but it is an anti and adenovirus vector that carries particles. Of the Covid virus, and it's perfectly safe and overall, it is 85 to 90% effective in severe disease. It's 100% effective. So it's really great when I go down my list here and I look at it the defense against Delta. It's very, very good. It is 1.6 fold in producing antibody, and they're saying now that it's 90 90 95% effective. And protecting against Covid 19. So the JJ vaccine is not one to, uh to belittled by anything. They unfortunately have had some side effects that everybody's heard about inflammation of the heart in some young men. Very, very rare and blood clots in the brains of some women. Very, very rare. But these things happen when you're giving 151 190 million people, uh, you know, vaccine So you expect a few glitches here and there, and that's just the way our bodies are built. We're all different genetically, and we should keep in mind do some of the figures on the side effects are in the same category as your likelihood of getting struck by lightning or getting attacked by a shark. Probably less than being struck by lightning. I just We just had a kid here in New Jersey, struck by lightning yesterday, and it's not so rare if you're the only person on the beach and there's a thunderstorm, but I have to say it's even rarer than being struck by lightning. All right to Thomas in Arcadia, California for Dr Bob. Hi, Jim. Doctor. I had one question. Is it illegal to give somebody the Covid 19 vaccine without their permission? I believe it is illegal. Yes. Now That's an invasion of privacy. Frankly, and as a physician, I think I protect the individuals right to privacy and the right demands, you know, take care of their own body. Now, if you work for a company or you work for school system, you are told in advance. Well, hey, we're going to mandate We're going to make you take this vaccine or else you won't have a job. Well, that's the agency's prerogative. And legally with the now FDA approved vaccine by fighter, they can do that. And, as you may have heard here in Philadelphia school system and in the New York City school system right here, where I am, uh, that has been mandated for teachers, ancillary staff, et cetera in the school system. And it will be very long before bus drivers and cab drivers and uber guys and all that will be mandated to get the vaccine. But as a as a doctor, I feel that you're you have a right to privacy and you have a right to do with to your body. What is appropriate, But you need to be educated and understand what the ramifications of that art 18665 Jimbo 1866554626. And this messenger RNA. Is that the wave of the future for vaccines? Yes, Yes, Yes. Well, actually, it's not that new. You know, we've been using messenger RNA vaccine for about 10 years in other areas. We also have DNA vaccines as well. So this is the fact that this is now happening with Covid or coronavirus is as a novel. It's a novel way to attack the the virus by tweaking the immune system. And by the way, it doesn't change your genes. That doesn't change yourselves. It doesn't program. You believe me. I've heard them all. Yeah, 50. There are no computer chips being stuck in your body. Correct. You're right, Jim. All right. We got a week doesn't happen. We gotta we gotta pause. We're gonna come back with more calls 18665. Oh, Jimbo 1866554626, but Dr Robert La Vita.

"We dug into that and and I put we published our findings at Forbes the Forbes column and thank you very much for highlighting this. Has nearly a half million views on it now, and it basically set the standard for national and international reporting from major news agencies. The the information was this. This was made public. In other words you didn't have to do dig it out as so often you have to do this was right there. So it was. It was on the Web. We did. We did read all the reports and we dug it out. And here's what happened after we published the investigation, and we can get into all the details here this evening because it's pretty extraordinary. Those audit reports within hours were erased from those federal website. We now know because we have the State Department on record that they issued the directive to pull down those audit reports, which were just quantified equipment and U. S taxpayers support didn't have anything to do with exposing Afghan nationals or other assets on the ground. It was only the equipment that taxpayers had provided. Uh and those audit reports were pulled off line. After the fact that hardly seems like there's any point to that I mean, other than something else that they did wrong. I mean, if you're going to do that, you have to do it before it's been made public, right? So, yes, it was mystifying to us, because the news reports. They're pretty clear on this that we left. The Taliban biometric information on all of our Afghan allies. We left the Taliban lift. We came to the Taliban with lists of Afghan nationals who had helped us over the course. The last 20 years that we wanted to evacuate. We asked for the Taliban help by name to get these folks out of the country and evacuation. Yes, The Taliban obviously is history of murdering those folks. And and so the Biden administration was perfectly transparent with the Taliban. On the other side. On the other hand, they were ripping down U. S taxpayer provided guns, ammunition and military style equipped military equipment that the Taliban already controlled. The only purpose for that, it seems, was to forestall transparency so they couldn't be held accountable so the bite administration could be held accountable. For the equipment going to the other side. Now, The Pentagon has said that some of this equipment, especially the sensitive equipment, was in fact blown up or otherwise disabled before we left. Do you have anything on that? So that's you know, that's good news. We, uh we heard stories and they were published in the media that you know are the soldiers our men and women, You know, they took the keys to the Humvees. So they you know, are they made, you know certain assets. Non operable. Um And so there's a couple of different thoughts with that one is taxpayers still paid for that it's still left behind, even if it is inoperable. Number two is that for sophisticated assets There wasn't a lot of time. Obviously, we didn't even get all the Americans out of the country. So much less. Take care of all the equipment that was left in the country, right? I mean, that only stands to reason. We just didn't have time to do it, so a lot of the secrets can be inspected and reverse engineered by the Russians and Chinese And one can certainly assume that that would be the case. In terms of of, uh The dollar value. It sounds like at least on paper. This would make Afghanistan at least a regional minor power militarily. Well, it would and think about this $83 billion worth of equipment and training over 20 years. Three billion Last year, the Biden administration was asking Congress and the president's budget for to Congress. For next year for 3.3 billion. They were going to increase the amount of money on equipment and training into the Afghan security forces. There was going to be no peace dividend. Uh, we found that interesting up. But Afghanistan is A small backward economy. Think about this. It only has $11 billion worth of organic gross domestic product. If you take away the United States subsidy at nine billion a year, they got about a $20 billion economy. But about nine billion of that was us. Organically. They only have about 11 billion. It's super small. They have the same amount of people as the state of California. California has an economy of over $3 trillion So we poured. We stuff this little nation, four of military equipment and guns and all kinds of different things. $83 billion. They never had the capacity to absorb any of this. And now everything that's operational is in the hands of the enemy. Stay with us more to come. 18665 Oh, Jimbo, 1866554626.

"The Pentagon identity politics and what is coming out of the White House does not seem to be in the long term interests of the United States. And I would would say if I were advising this white house with their best interests at heart, and I most assuredly or not, but I would I would have to say, Mr President, You've got to pick a course. Sir. You can't just go both ways. I mean, seriously. I mean, this is self defeating. Yeah. I mean, we want what's in the best interests of the country, right? So if the Biden administration was making smart choices that the privileged the United States it was proud of our country and our history. The things that America has stood for for well over 200 years that have people coming to us in droves. You don't see Americans going to Yemen, right? Or Nigeria or, you know, we need three locker anyplace like that. People want to come here for a reason. And it seems that we're destroying that internally and and divide the administration and Vice President Kamala Harris are the leading proponents of these sorts of things, and they just don't understand it, so I would much rather Would be a strong administration, furthering the interests the United States than the other way around. But we have what we have now, and I think the American voters need to pay attention to that. Absolutely. In terms of how we're dealing with the rest of the world. We have, of course, uh, countries which are shall we say, antagonistic to the best interests of the United States and a variety of locales, and certainly they don't stop with the Iran we mentioned in passing the Iranian Dealings with North Korea. And, of course, uh, China and Russia remain in the forefront there as well. Not to mention the various groups like Isis, which have not disappeared, but merely have had their their territorial Pretentions wiped away. There are a lot of people out there. How are we doing with those who would wish us harm? Well, not not Well, If you recall this past week, we had the G seven, uh in England. There was the NATO meeting, then the fall into that Europe that rolled right into the Biden Putin summit. Can you recall any significant reporting that came out of that? You know these very high level delegation, So the Biden team showed upset America's back, and we're in a leading role again after that, Trump Fiasco. I mean, this was abiding teams push and everybody just kind of yawned right that that you know that America isn't back and and by this terms, they just don't give him any credibility. If you recall the meeting in Alaska that took place between our secretary of state and the Chinese You know, diplomats and our folks stayed on their side table and we're a lecture Dad for well over an hour. I mean, why would we tolerate that? They're supposed to getting up and walking out, so it seems that we have this very soft approach. To the chief competitors. We have around the world, whether it's North Korea, China, Russia or Iran, and we don't have the respect of our allies with whom we must have strong relationships. You know if Most of the departments in the United States saw an average increase of 16% in the $6 Trillion proposed budget. For next year, The Department of Defense had a 1.6% increase to half a percentage point less than inflation. So you have a U. S military that are shrinking. It is rapidly aging, not replacing old equipment, not expanding commensurate with the responsibilities and interest we have around the world. So it seems that all of the decisions being made by the administration Are harmful to the current and long term interests of our country and its emboldening and incentivizing or competitors. I'm afraid that America is back America, The Patsy America, the the Nation that Will not show leadership among our friends and opposition to our enemies.

Is there that argument to be made, and I suppose beyond that is at a cost effective argument. Well, I I honestly to the last part, especially it's not cost effective. Yes, the ER the courage could benefit. Yes, Iraq does benefit. But if it's a net loss for us, then we can't do it. Because, believe me, there are people all over the world that would love nothing more than to have American military support because their own forces are not as good as ours. Of course. I mean, it makes sense. And their desires make perfect sense to me. I understand why many in Iraq would want us definitely understand why the Syrian Democratic forces, But But is it worth it to us?

"Well, Billy Joel, That can mean different things at different times in our history, and these days in New York State of mind may not always be Quite so positive. We're talking with Matthew Taylor, who has made a documentary a video about the quality of life in New York City and what he sees as its decline. 18665 Jimbo is our number 1866554626. The previous caller had asked a bit about people being released from Rikers Island. I'm not sure if that happened or if so, under what mayor but Perhaps Matthew Taylor can can tell us Yes. So Mayor de Blasio did release some of the inmates from Rikers Island to try to stem some of the covid outbreaks. And again. This was just another one of those decisions that when you put it together with the bail reform And the state of the city during Covid, and, of course, the George Floyd riots and so on. Um it just it just has made the situation more complicated and more dangerous for its citizens. You know, and that these there are people who are not getting in trouble for, you know, various crimes. And of course, a lot of the shootings are the things that are reported by the New York Post. Primarily book, but assaults are way way way up, and they are not reported. This is actually what is happening all the time people being punched in the face in attack. And people get picked up and just released again. So yes, that is one of those things that did happen in the last year that has just increase the danger level of the city for its citizens. Now, you made reference to the New York mayoral primary a little bit earlier for those who don't know, And I guess most of us probably don't. But that is Tuesday. Tomorrow, the 22nd of June if I'm not mistaken. And that out of that will come. I believe a A Final five. It will be chosen by ranked choice voting, which is to say, a process whereby people vote for Smith as their first choice Jones as their second choice, Uh, Johnson is their third choice and so on down the line, and if nobody gets a majority of the vote, then the The last place finishers votes are transferred to their second choice and so on down the line eventually somebody winds up with, uh, 50%. That is to say a majority. Of the vote in the city, your thoughts about the candidates, and is anybody running on law and order? Well, you know, this is a very complicated mayoral rates. First of all the primary in his very early it is tomorrow. And of course, this is the largest implement patient of ranked choice. Voting among a number of candidates that don't seem to have the typical New York flash and style of our past mayors. Bloomberg the Giuliani's glow Borgias. Um there are a number of people running their 13 people running. Um and so you have a scenario where again New York City is opening up. People are coming out there. Probably not paying as much attention to this election. Uh, as usual, I think the early voting numbers as of a few few days ago was only 64,000 people, which is a incredibly low number of activity and look the last mayoral race. You had 1.2 million people in total vote. At an 8.2 million people. So it's already a low activity race, then de Blasio. I believe one by 764,000 votes or somewhere in that number, so that's not a lot of people who are determining the mayor. For the largest city in America. And so when you take back with the system that people are not familiar with, which is ranked choice voting and with a primary date that has been moved. Of its normal primary date, Um, and an inability proposed hers to really understand how to pull second choices and third choices of choices. You have a very I don't know. The polling polling, I think, is rather thoroughly flummoxed by by rank choice voting, Although I think the process of ranked choice voting has a A pretty good rationale, but try to figure out before people actually cast their votes and plus something else to rank choice. Voting requires people to actually do their homework. I mean, how do I know? I mean, I may prefer Smith, Okay? Do I really know My second choice is Jones for my third choices? Johnson don't really know that. Well, not unless you actually read position papers or or editorial stands on the the candidates. This sort of thing. It requires that voters actually work a bit, and unfortunately, a lot of voters in this country are not prone to, uh, not prone to do that. I gather is de Blasio running for reelection. The Blasio was turned out, so that's what I thought. New Mayor Yes, This is a completely new person. Um, and you know again, these candidates are not that well known with the exception of Andrew Yang, because, of course he ran. President in 2020, so he is the highest profile candidate running but Eric Adams Actually is a former police officer who is running on a crime and safety platform. And if you consider that 3.4 million people are registered, registered to vote, and only 500,000 of them are Republicans and crime is the number one issue. That means crime is the number one issue of law and order is the number one issue among Democrats. And a very liberal city, which is kind of an astounding thing since just a year ago. Quite literally year ago, the city was literally burning due to riots and other you know, events that were happening during the covid pin. You know the pandemic in the lockdown. 18665 Jimbo 1866554626. I gathered from your comments earlier that a number of these candidates despite What I would consider to be common sense. And despite the circumstances we have described a number of them are still running on a and even less law and order than usual platform seriously. Yes, it seems that has broken into two categories. You have the progressive laid dominated by Maya widely. Who you know, wants to defund the police. Um And you know Scott Stringer, who was also in that category with a number of other lesser candidates, and then you have this moderate Democrats name that is running on a A pro police, pro crime prevention, pro charter schools, among other things, and so that is, of course, Eric Adams and Engine Gang are running in those categories. Um, and so that is essentially Two lanes that are that are available. Usually it's it's Democrats and Republicans. But the Republican you know again, it's not a big number, so this is truly a turning point for the city. It's not whether the city will recover. It will recover. The question is, how long will it take to recover? Will you get a mayor in there? Who is strong on these policies that will set the city right? Where you get somebody in there who takes 10 26 the city into a 30 year death spiral before it finally bounces back, And that's the question New Yorkers really should ask themselves. Especially if they live, you know, in the city for a long period of time. 18665 Oh, Jimbo, are number 1866554626. We'll come back. We'll learn how you can get a copy of this is New York.

"Had a code when I was 6650, Jimbo 1866554626. We're talking with the president of National School Choice Week. Andrew Campanella. That's this week and their website school choice week dot com And you were talking about about about private schools Is the brake intervene. Please finish that thought. Do we go back to some calls here? Short. Sorry I ran up, right? No, no, no there, but I'm the time Go ahead. Ex ship, private schools are allowed to set their own emissions criteria. But when private schools offer scholarships, they often offer them to disadvantaged students. Families who cannot afford tuition and Have known so many families who have taken advantage of state run scholarship programs and tuition assistance programs. And these are students who were really struggling and private schools welcome them in and in so many cases. Their fortunes turned around, and these kids learned more, and we're happier as a result of their parents being able to make a choice, so I Think that the argument that school choice leads to schools, cherry picking their students and almost schools, choosing students. It's just not born out by the facts. All right, 1866. Rival Jimbo, When 8665054626 we go to Matt in Sioux City, Iowa High Good afternoon, Jim and other person. First of all intelligence is genetic. Well, not entirely. I mean, let's face it an awful lot of how you perform has to do with how well you were prepared. So we can start with that fact. I can have wonderful jeans. And if I come from a dysfunctional family, and there's no time to study no place to study, and no one teaches me how to study. I'm not going to do as well as an average kid, but he has all the advantages so we can start with that as a fact. Well, once again, intelligence is genetic. Second of all, a 30 year old parent could teach their child how to read how to write. And how did you do Math if they know themselves? Yes. 30 years of age. If you don't know how to read, write and do mass, you're at the age where you should learn Number three teachers are not underpaid. In my bad depends. Some are. I'm sure others they're paid different amounts so they can't all be equally well paid. Number four athletes learned a new entertainers are way overpaid. And number five proving to me. Two thirds of Americans are idiots. I thank you for your time, Jim. Whatever. I'm not even sure what we should make of that particular call, So feel free to comment, if you wish. I'll let go. Thanks. I think there was a wise choice. Tony and mandolins, North Dakota. Good evening. Hello, gentlemen. Thank you for Reaching out. So my point is, I love this conversation. By the way, I've worked with youth for 23 years here in my state. I completely agree with the moving forward. My example is about private schools. And how it saves. I believe in my experience with With schools it saves. People money. With staffing and retirement and all the stuff that the public schools have to find teachers. They have to find all of the stuff that goes into staffing all of those kids Private schools assist with that. Lowers the taxes for certain people in these 100,000 to 200,000. And population towns, cities and I think that it gives choice and these other choices that you talked about with the doors earlier. I love that example. I'm gonna steal it from you. And having a parent myself with kids that went to procure school. I'm all the way through middle school and now in the public high school, I was so so blessed to have those choices. So anyone outside of that, I think Probably needs to really sit down and talk to administrators and do the math. That's my challenge for certain people that are there blocking this so Okay. Andrew. First I want to say thank you for your work with students and for your kind words, and I would say when it comes to teachers and staff, it's also so important to remember that they like different learning environments and teaching and Work environments, too. So when you open the doors of opportunity for students, you're actually opening the doors of opportunity for teachers to find places where they love to teach us well, and having more than one option in a community is great for educators. When it comes to the financial question and the tax related question. Studies have proven that when you increase school choice options, money is spent more effectively and efficiently across all types of schools. I think that's what we want. Because we want the money to go to classrooms. We want the money to go to teachers, and we want the money to be used to make sure students are learning. 186650, Jimbo, our number 18665054626. We're talking with Andrew Campanella, the president of National School choice Week. Another thing that I know has been brought up from time to time and we'll let you a tackle it here. I don't think it's a legitimate Concerned. I think it may reflect misunderstanding, but someone might say the only alternative to my public schools. There's a Catholic school system. I don't want my kids to become Catholic, even though it's a better school system. You know that's a great question. I know a lot of students who go to Catholic schools who are not Catholic, and the same goes for other religions as well. You would find that a lot of private religious schools welcome students and who are not in their denomination. And so I think that's Just a great testament to the schools and the fact that they are open. They're welcoming their inclusive. Would also say that If there are fewer options in the community. In terms of bricks and mortar schools look into the online learning options because there are online public schools in many states across goodness knows those options have certainly expanded their during this past year. They have, and this has been really an interesting year for education, and I think it's opened a lot of people's eyes to what education should be what it needs to be. All right to Tom in Messina Park, New York apartment, Just plain Messina, New York. Go ahead, Tom. Hey, How are you? Well, thank you. I think it has a lot to do with the parents at home that are enforcement her kids are teaching in that school is important and where I come from the community here. It's a very poor community. It's the most poorest community in upstate New York. And informing just not available for sure. So we're just short alway around it. It don't matter. Yes, Some families can't afford enough. We just don't have Infrastructure where I am without you know it. Zorn Lee good to have the proper facilities. But there is no reason why you cannot get Decent of a decent education out of a school that may not be the richest school may not have the the best labs or the fanciest fieldhouse are like but again. I'm curious as to just what all you find deficient in terms of funding in your school system there that there would would prevent someone from learning. I'm in favor of of improving situations like that, But I don't know that it's automatically closes the door to learning Tom Is he closes the door to the families that just can't afford the want to send their kids somewheres else. Or we did. We didn't mention the fact that often there are scholarships in the like available. I mean, well, where I am, And you know we're right on the community border. We're in a In a community that we'd have to travel three hours for private school. All right. What do you say to a Tom Andrew? I think Tom brings up a really good point. And then in some rural areas, there are fewer options than there are in larger metropolitan areas. And that's just a reality. Um, I would say that I believe he was in New York. He's in upstate New York. Near the Canadian border. Yes. New York is one of the things it doesn't have an online public school, which is something that would be beneficial open enrollment programs, allowing students to go toe, other traditional public schools and public charter schools, magnet schools, Those could be options..
