Um, well, Biden is now breaking his silence on the Cuomo sexual harassment scandal, declining, though, to call for his resignation. Isn't Joe Biden breaking his silence that yesterday, falling short of calling the embattled New York Democrat to resign. In a press conference, he was asked whether he agreed with other Democrats calling for Cuomo's immediate resignation. Fine said plainly. Quote. I think the investigation is underway and we should see what it brings us. This obviously goes against some of the others in his own party. Take, for example, Senator Chuck Schumer joining representative Alexandria, Ocasio Cortez, among others, Jerry Naylor and Friday who have all called for the state's governor, to leave his position as allegations of inappropriate conduct. Continue to emerge. Nancy Pelosi yesterday reaffirmed that she has zero tolerance for sexual harassment, but refused, refused to echo their calls for his resident resignation until our investigation is complete. One of the other things that we're hearing about two is the board of the border crisis continues. Pelosi touchdown that yesterday on this week on ABC, but but blamed former President Donald Trump for the crisis. The actually the facts of these, There are more Children about 6 700 more Children on a company Children coming over the border. The This is a humanitarian challenge to all of us. What the administration has inherited is a broken system at the border, and they're working to correct that. The Children's interest.

"Authentic stories of inspiration. Now, here's your host of Amazing Americans, Jerry Schemmel. My guest. Today, An amazing Americans won the most unique stories you will ever hear. He is a runner. He was born in Kenya but now a U. S citizen nine years ago in an attempted suicide, he survived 56 hours in a blizzard in Alaska. He lost both feet to frostbite. But since has made one the most incredible comebacks imaginable. Get ready to be blown away by this athlete. His name is Marko just said Oh, Marco Year. Your story is so incredible. So improbable. Do you ever sit back these days and just wonder how in the world all this happened to you? But sometimes I do. Thank you for having me. Yes, but you know, I don't spend so much time questioning. Somebody leave when you look back on it now what do you see? You see something? You had to go through something. You regret something you would change. You would do differently when you look back at the incident. The 56 hours in the snow. What do you see today? What I said. Today is a mental health is a real thing. And you know, we I think that society doesn't put Ah lot of emphasis on it. It's almost sometimes viewed as Yeah. Affected Possum. Could have done something himself to fix himself or herself is not seen. As you know, this is Do you see that this possible is going through? You don't like they tell us, you know, or somebody will survive. Attempted to Scientific s O. Why did you want to kill yourself? Such question is very tough. I am not Afraid to answer them or offended if someone asked me or stigmatized by it, But that is me. What This is how I sometimes see. On other Ellis, You've seen people with obesity. And nobody. You know, I don't want to say nobody. But more often, they don't ask them. When you are eating so much did you know that you're gonna kill yourself through heart attack or hypertension or diabetes? Nobody. Friends is that way. So I think what I see two is Society. We need to change the way we do. Those who have survived mental health. And acknowledge that yes, it's a problem that they went through. And yes, they have a part that they can play by blowing that things. Will never stayed that way for the rest of their lives. Each day will bring a light. So that they so that as a society that stigmatization associated with mental health is reduced, and that way more life is going to be saved because people are afraid to come out and share their stories because of how they are going to be asked. Why did you want to do this? Why did you want it Just interviewed somebody the show Marco with an alcohol problem, He said the same thing I I'm afraid to tell the story because of the backlash because the stigma to it Let me ask you this question is the attempted suicide. When you just explain how it's looked at in our society. Is it different in your home country of Kenya? How do folks they're looking at a situation like yours? It's the way it's almost universal observation or the way people perceive it That way. People look at it. It is the responsibility off the passion going through. And it's a little bit better here in the U. S. Because most people acknowledge and know that there is a mental problem and where I come from people still deny the existence of mental has itself. Let me ask you about your running career. And what kind of get started that in the next second? We'll talk about the event in November, 2011. But hey, when did running start for you? Was it really at a young age started running in Kenya. Yeah, going to pre K and it did not start as something that I was doing in order to be a good run. It started because it is Captured today a lifestyle their kids don't use masses or they don't get dropped to school by parents in a car. They have. Walk or run to school. So for me, I was just doing some informal running. Until I was in high school. Dad is when I started now. Running and looking at it as a competitive sport. Was their point. Marco, were you sort of fell in love with running or was it always just sort of something you did for fun, and then you got a little more serious about it. But I know a lot of runners say, you know, I just fell in love with running at this point. My life was at that moment for you. We hold it with you. I don't recall a moment in my life that running Woz monitoring me that running was something that I needed to see that out something else. That I could do other than running around. So for me. I just grew up doing it and I didn't have anything to look and be like me, and I really don't want to be doing this. So it's something that Husband in me, so I have just been enjoying since I started walking, running and doing it. Now as a profession. It was your time, Marco. When you realize you were good at this, that you were a good runner, and maybe you had a future beyond what you were doing in running. Yes, it s so when I was in college, I went to a two year college in Kenya. And that was when I was doing it in high school was for fun. I get to get free bread at a packed week. Pretend my school And travel to you don't know where I was in a boarding school, and it was boys school alone. So in it that he had told, you know, high school, you're told. Hey, One for the school. You're gonna be traveling around the country interacting with other students, as like, Oh, man, This is a good time. So, yes, but in quality that was when I realized that this could be something good because then I was told of my by my college. Cord to that. Through running. You can get some scholarships and may be good for us. And are not doing. I really didn't know it was going to Be happening to me. But it is coincidentally, I was approached by a coach from the U. S. And I That was the time now that I you that I really need to take this seriously. That coach was the head coach at Alaska Anchorage, which is a very, very cold place when you were first approached by the coach there, Marco and looked at where Alaska Woz and the climate What did you think? Oh, I didn't look and see what the climate and weather in Alaska was like, because in 2000 and 876 when I was still back in Kenya The term Googling that did not exist in my World. So you know, even though I was curious and wanted to know how it might, I didn't have a way of knowing how that you know. And then the wholeness. I was too curious about How the weather and everything as well. Look like I just knew that it was an opportunity that I am going to go to the United States. Let me ask you about the first time you stepped out of a vehicle or out of a plane in Anchorage, Alaska. So you recruited you. You sign it. You get a scholarship to Alaska, Anchorage to run. First time you were there first time that you arrive in Anchorage. What was that? Like? I thought you are completely lost. I thought maybe we were dropped in a wrong place.

It's almost nine o'clock and this is how it is in the summertime. You bring warm clothes with you. Yes, I had a very heavy jacket. But I didn't need them when we land it because it was not not cold at the auto talking with Marco to settle. He has this incredible stories. A native Kenyan, now the U. S citizen. And of runner and he had this incident in Alaska in Anchorage when he was going to school that he was a runner. They're very successful. It involves his cousin as well. When we come back, we're gonna talk about that. The situation back November 6 2011 where he was gone, where nobody could find him for 56 hours in a blizzard in Alaska.

Since 1922. This is our 99th year soon to be 100 Years celebration. Good morning again. I'm Ron Brummett. I happen to be the president of the mission, and I've been here three decades, 30 years in February. It's just awesome. I am so thankful and so honored to be a part of such a great organization. That has served this community for almost 10 decades. Almost 100 years we have so much going on. This is your first time ever tuning in by the way, what we do we help those people, men, women and Children that are experiencing homelessness. People that have lost their way in life. Maybe people you seen as you travel in Miami Dade and Broward counties. Maybe they're begging on the intersection. Maybe you see, see him sleeping on a bus bench Or sometimes you see women in a couple of Children in a broken down car. And they need help. You never know. Even though you see people standing up for hours, sometimes at the intersections asking for money. Some are trying to be cute. They say I need money for booze. Others just say Please help anything you can you can give will help on weak Sonny label. People is very easy to do that. Even if times I will do that, and I've been doing this for many, many years. Is that you know if they can stand up there and walk up and down the street and hold a sign and basically begged for 56 hours, can't they get a job? And yet the reality of life is when you see people like that, from all different ethnicities, backgrounds, age groups, you don't know the whole story. You know, back in the seventies and eighties, They had tremendous advances and psychotropic medications for people with mental illness. And so people were released from these giant institutions, and they actually went back and people doing well for a long time. But it seems to me As I've seen the face of homelessness changed in these last 30 years that we're seeing Maura and Maura people on the streets suffering from mental illness, and you've seen this do people walking up and down the sidewalk screaming at a cloud or talking to a tree? You know, Some kids think it's kind of comical. What's wrong with them? But they're suffering from severe mental illness, and people are also affected by drug addiction. And the experts and all this field say they don't know if it's a drug addiction that led to the mental illness or people is the mental illness that they're using drugs to self medicate and not have the effects of that. In any case, there's always a story. You'd be amazing Some of the people that I've met over the years we think, Hissene able bodied person. In fact, this person used to be a tax accountant. What happened and you find out that he lost his his family in a tragic car accident. And he just lost it. He lost the will to go on. He couldn't face life. And so our approach is a little different than a lot of other organizations. Yes, we want to have people come in, and we want them to feel comfortable to feel loved and appreciated. You want to give them food and clothing and a place to sleep, and then maybe some services, But we are a Christian organization and we don't shy from that. You don't have to be any certain religion to come to our centers in Miami Dade or Brauer to get services. Way have been founded on the original people that started this ministry back in 1922. It was called Grace Mission at the time they came down and they wanted to feed people. But they also want to share the love of Jesus Christ The love of God through Jesus and that is never left us. You know, times are changed right now. Who would ever believe that this month is the year? Um, anniversary If you want to call it that off covert of the Corona virus, invading our country to such a degree that everyone I woke up and took notice. Who would ever think that this will be the way we are right now? People fighting for vaccines, and still should we wear masks not wear a mask and all the things that have happened just in this last year here, and you're in a few months, But all the course of these entire 99 years our focus has always been How to love people how to share the love of God in practical ways with people. You know we can't do everything that we do, and we have passed over coming up with the last week of this month and then April, 4th is Easter. Not Easter is always celebrated. One of the biggest Christian holidays is the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We also have Passover, which has deep significant meaning for our Jewish friends to be released from bondage and to have a powerful God a provider God that loves him and supports them. In fact, to the point where 1947 after thousands of years of being dispersed, Actually, Israel was Was formed again, and that was a biblical promise. So that's very significant. We have two major holidays religious holidays back to back and were planned even though we can't do things like returning in previous years. Normally at this time will be planning for Thanksgiving on good Friday, where we would close down the Streets in Miami and M Broward, and we'll invite you know hundreds and hundreds of people in both counties. It was told over 2500 people at the end of the day, and we have a sit down dinner and we'd have entertainment and we'd have giveaways and you have things for the kids, But we can't do it at that degree now, but we've learned a lot with the virus like everyone else. We had our great outreaches for Thanksgiving, where we did food baskets and Neil preparation and giveaways We had Christmas. When we had an actual drive thru at our church property, located in Miami Gardens where families signed up and I think was over 700 families that Mr Ben what at least 2000 people and the toys that were given out to the kids and other things People were prayed for so and we had our heart for the homeless celebration in February, where we had People in our programs and others that were around our buildings were giving a special treat for the day and and just, um, smiles can't do the hugs. But we did the smiles and let people know that God loves them and people in the community care about them. So.

How he was, you know, Hard thing to do Hard thing to do for granted. I would think yes, trying to bring those some hope to that region. Well, you know, if you would share the radical Muslims would quit cutting the heads off for Christians and killing them. Maybe maybe that could happen. Good. I wonder if the radical Muslim leaders are telling their people the same thing is the pope is telling his? Probably not. Probably not. Probably not steps. One deal, the pope would sit down with the new Ayatollah that wants to kill him. Yep. With you? Yes. Was the pope? Do you think the pope's thinking He's gonna change his mind, But the I told him I would hope So, Yeah. No, but I think that's what you believe that well, I think that's his mission, as you know in his role, hoping that he could Who's calling.

Robin does What Uh huh. Well, she's got better bait. Exactly. She does. There you go.

And they say it kind of reworked your brain. It rewired your brain. If you grew up with a mobile device or tablet in your hand. Yes, it alters how your brain works. What is this good or bad, though?

"It's always gonna be dependent on government for this or that if Carrie Lampert Her doctor had been in charge. She would've gotten a vaccine. Yeah. Her husband, John 70 years old has severe heart failure. Still waiting to get lucky and get an appointment. But if John's doctor had his say he would have gotten a vaccine. This is why you don't put bureaucrats and politicians two of the least useful species on the face of the earth. You don't put them in charge of something like this. You put people who know what the hell they're doing, which is doctors. Mike, proud. E 68 of Shore View says he was one of the many eager seniors who helped to crash the state's vaccine sign up. When it was first offered weeks ago, he made 117 calls 117. For crazy. Finally getting through to register himself and his wife, a twin cities, friends snagged an appointment in Thief River Falls, which ain't close guys. Then the state's how far Away's Thief River falls too far from here. It's like it's like 56 hours, right, And it's like a six hour drive. I guess I'll check. I don't know if the top of my head the state changed the registration system, then Offering shots at a handful of large vaccination sites around the around Minnesota. It switch things up again by encouraging seniors to sign up for the newly launched Govind 19. Vaccine connector all up rowdy and other seniors played pharmacy roulette rising before dawn to see if they're if Walgreens are thrifty, white or CVS had received an allotment that we're in. We're offering shots. Brought his wife, 68, healthy was vaccinated weeks ago. Wait, faxes 68 healthy. Yeah, OK, everyone says be patient, says proudly, a retired administrator with the U. S. Forest Service, who underwent hip replacement surgery a few weeks ago. I decided I can't get all jacked up on this because it's affecting my help. To alleviate the stress. Proud. He decided to step back by reading books and taking dogs for walks. So basically he's he was giving up. But then he scored an appointment through the state for a shot at Red Lake. Fall Falls more than 275. Miles away. 275 miles away. 117 calls for one guy 275 Mile Drive for another guy. Twin cities to Thief. River River falls for another guy. This is what happens when you let the state of Minnesota government run something that should be very, very simple. Putting jabs in people's arms. After weeks of frustration, Margaret Moscow of Saint Paul learned just Wednesday the she and her husband are scheduled to be vaccinated. Their shots were scheduled for Tuesday at the Wind Woods and would bury the 79 year old with chronic lung disease, says she's been stuck in her north end apart north and home for months, too afraid to leave for fear of the virus. Said she's eager to get out in public again. Her husband has been more fortunate. He just got back from ice fishing at Lake of the woods. He never left the fish house. Their daughter in law said. A couple said the couple for weeks monitor the vaccine Locator and my charge through M Health Fairview. Without luck, they can't get any answers. Can't talk to a doctor, she said the day before they secured appointments. They are very frustrated because they know other people who are getting it and they can't figure it out. Interesting little nugget earlier in the in the story, there's there's an anecdote about in imbue see who's trying to set up a little vaccine information network through her area. Y M C, A and little nugget in here that that that's interesting, and that you would think would have occurred to the geniuses in the state of Minnesota, the bureaucrats and politicians that have decided that they're the best equipped to handle vaccine distribution of the 1400 members in her Y M C. A over 65 only 45% even have an email attached to their name. That occurred to anybody when they decided to to tell you that you have to register through a website to get the vaccine. They think about that. I mean, we brought it up here, You know, way we talked about how you know these are the same people that they tell us simply are incapable of getting a picture I d to vote their senior citizens. It's really hard. But yet for some reason, they think it's okay to tell them that go, go try to win this vaccine lottery on this website that may or may not crash when you get to it. Good luck, but you don't even have an email address. By the way, I'm looking at the list here. So we have the story from the five because the new the new way they're gonna They're targeting this whole thing, And now they're trying to break it out by months. Right? So I'm looking at the list here, so we'll also once he won 70% of the seniors to get vaccinated who can get their vaccine right now? Health care professionals, long term care residents. People age 65 older pre K peak, pre k grade 12 teachers and child care workers. Right, look. If they're not falling into the 65, or older category. And they're healthy individuals. Right? Um look, and I'll even speak to health care professionals along terror, you know, hope, health care professionals and the pre gay pre k grade 12 teachers and child care workers. I mean, I get it. I understand the logic here. But if your goal is to get the seniors vaccinated, and you haven't been able to do that, and seniors, you're still dying If those health care professionals aren't over 6500 completely good health and protecting themselves and the teachers are following in that same category of being under 55 in perfectly good health. Especially when the vast majority of them were still distance learning. Then why are they? Why are they still in the first tier? Didn't do you know what I know why, but they shouldn't. My point is, I shouldn't. Of course they shouldn't be. But that's not how things work in Minnesota. John listen to the stories of these individuals. It's insane. It is just insane. It's insane. It's sad, and it's It's really frustrating because it just shows you the inept ins, Theoneste itude and incompetence of of what's going on here with the state of Minnesota and this government, everything they touch they just destroy whether it's you know, getting out licensing tabs, whether it's setting up the men Sure, website, whatever it is whether it's administering daycare funds without losing $100 million, potentially going to some, some of it going to terrorist groups. Everything the state government touches turns to crap. When you get to the next year, and I actually looked at this because again, I'm considered somewhat high risk, not because of my age, but because of my heart condition stuff. And it tells you how many calls my cardiologists. Most beginning is like I said, I called the other day and on the recorded message they have. Don't got don't call us for a vaccine. Call your local call Your general practitioner. You should get vaccinated. But don't call us. You know how many calls air getting But April and may the next year, right People 45 to 64 with one or more high risk medical condition. People 16 to 44 with two or more high risk medical conditions. Scorecard. You know, like you're hoping my whole I belie. I hope my matches medical conditions like and get my vaccine. It's it's arbitrary things isn't.

Oh, yes. Hi. I'm sorry. Everything I'll speaker found. That's all right. What's on your mind this morning? Hey, I just want to say I love you guys Listen every day, but my father I don't know a little different. I just wanted you for being a little Too demanding of the power grids. This is a freak thing, And I'm sympathetic towards anyone who also power I mean, I was without it in the rolling blackouts here 56 hours of the time. But I guess I wanted were demanding these answers from then why aren't people going after the grocery stores that ran out of food and water? You weren't we demanding them to fix their problems. I mean, if there was some sort of bill intent, you know something they find out they really did wrong or mismanage. Well, then, you know, fix that. But what we understand why I think we can. We can collectively understand why the 18 wheelers went on the road. The roads were were icy. And that's a completely separate side of the storm, but specifically with the power companies, Scott it's an interesting comment because This has been a problem that's been percolating for generations in this state, right? Not being prepared on the power grid. So many new people moving to town so many new products that required to be plugged in like cars and things like that. Well haven't kept up with the demand for the power grid. The way we haven't kept up with the demand for new roads in America. This herd, And here's the thing. Do you want to spend a trillion dollars to upgrade the state's power grid for something that might happen? 50 years from now, or do you want to just deal with it for a week when it has something that might happen? 50 years from now? That only affected us? Really? For just you know, a few days? Yes, but I'm not. I'm not trying to lessen it, but I'm just trying to step back, and that's been the attitude of lawmakers up until now. You know what I mean? I mean, if you had Scott, if you went to the voters tomorrow and said we'd we need $5 billion to fix the power grid. I think the voters would probably say yes to that today just because they remember the bitter cold. Right, you know, but five years from now, they may have forgotten about it by then. But I do want to also address his his statement about Hee be not having enough food, other grocery stores not having enough food. I'm not sure I blame H e B I Something's happened. Our behavior means who's blaming H e b? I'm just saying, I've never heard that. He just raised that question. Should we be looking at that? I looked at us, man. I think we something has happened in us. Something is triggered when things get a little weird in the world. We go by way too much way too much road and way too much toilet paper. Something is compulsive and and impulsive. It happened happened us. There are margin for error has been reduced, man. See what I'm saying? And I'm trying to figure out how to explain this, Scott. Maybe you could help, too. It seems like just a little bit of mist. Ake leads to catastrophic events. You don't mean there's no room for error. No margin for error on anything right now. It seems like right. I mean, this the storm we went through. Just we didn't make it to the grocery store at all. For the week. You know, we just survived on what we had an arm. That we don't We don't stockpile anything. I don't blame me. She be. I don't blame H E. B for anything. Truckers have trouble getting on the run. Don't either. Cashiers had trouble getting to the stores and talking about us What's happened to us? We're not prepared. We're not prepared, but but there's because something mentally that were at the country freak out Half the country needs the government to come. Save them. Yeah. I got you. I got you. But I don't think we're strong as we used to be. And when we go to we go to get you know, toilet paper, milk and bread to make it an eggs to make us feel more comfortable about the world. Even if we don't need him, even if we don't need him. We gotta have more of it. Good times. Make weak men. Okay? Bad times. Make strong men. Well, there you go. And you can tell them old stronger and we've had some good talks to me. You got him wearing denim. The sea. Is it Brian and Ron Rock? Hey, Brian. Yes, sir. I'm calling the kind of pile on to weigh. The conversation started to change here, which is counter to some comments earlier, and that is a comparison to the power grid to a sandwich shop at the sandwich shop out of sandwiches. We wouldn't find them for not being able to sell sandwiches. Right? It's there. It's their business and they manage their supply chain and they responsible for their workers that provide their products. And if they can't do that, then people stopped going there and they lose business and the power companies air somewhat the same way there some regulation there, But if we if we have them Value of people of Texans decided to find them when they can't provide power. We're taking away some of our own personal responsibility for taking care of ourselves and make it look like we're entitled to something. That we want the government to provide for us, and I don't want the government to feel like I'm entitled anything. Yeah, I got you know I'm right there with you. Yeah, we collected. You know that Mayor even though that you know that mayor that had to resign because he called a bunch of his constituents lazy and not being prepared to take for care of themselves in Texas, where that strongly talked about. Absolutely he Colorado City. Yeah, he was right. He was just wrong on the timing. Don't hit as a politician. He was wrong. A zey common sense, man. He was absolutely right. Yeah, way just can't get to a point where we what we think we're entitled to electricity and the food and the water And to all of these things that are niceties that they didn't have 200 years ago and to the point where he will throw us it and riot and find people and take people to court because we don't get him. Yeah, Yeah, yeah. You know what? I have a feeling my fear, Brian. Maybe you could weigh in on this, too, That we're not too far away from some lawmakers proposing the idea of a state income tax to take care of these things. The infrastructure for the power grid, Our water system, our roads, You know all the things That politicians took it off the focus on primarily right. I mean, that's that's been their focus, right, but we've been fighting over bathrooms. We've been fighting over painting sidewalks like rain bows and things like that. We've been fighting over those social issues, you know, well, the people that are able to pay that in from tax We'll fight it, but the people that aren't able to pay it will argue that they want it so that they can get more handouts from somebody that has something. Yeah, well, you know what I think Collectively, the people of Texas because the sandwich shop analogy. I hear what you're saying. But You know, uh, the power company guaranteed T deliver electricity to my house. Whenever I agreed to pay for it right? There was a guaranteed behind that. And they couldn't fulfill that, you know. Stop paying him. See what happens. Try happened. Just give it a go Get back to me. Let's squeeze in Roger. Checking in from dripping Springs this morning, Roger Rush. Hey, guys. I'm thoroughly enjoying the conversation on the green with most of what's being said, But I want to give you a little different perspective. I've been in the Chicago suburbs for 60 years. Yeah, but I retired 2010. I moved down here to dripping Springs. Everything you're talking about. The utilities are capable of doing it. Cetera. Um, but you gotta understand the cost. The reason people like me and thousands and thousands of people move out of Illinois and move out of the Midwest every year. It's the governments have lost track of the costs, and I want to tell utility rates up there in the Midwest. Uh, dramatically higher taxes dramatically higher and and I want to say in the storm we just had if this storm that hit Michigan or Chicago Oh, yeah, absolutely Nothing. Nothing. Yeah. What's different? What's the whole heaven that already But don't forget. What that costs. Yeah, It's not cheap. It's massive E. If we had that kind of storm last week, you know, 234 times a year. I think these would be easy conversations, right? We'd have a fleet of trucks with plows and a bunch of stockpile of salted de icing equipment. We'd have all of that. Yeah. You know, we just haven't needed to be sure. I'm not sure we have anybody in Austin that really knows how to drive a snowplow. I really don't. We got people who know how to drive a plow. There's not much difference a plow, but you're Texas. You know how to drive. You know, big equipment. Don't your shit. We always all of us have, you know ranches and farms? All of us, And so therefore we have tractors and plow. What kind of equipment have you driven in your life is a zone adult as an adult man. That was pretty good on a riding mower..
