Staggering Statistics on People Diagnosed With Blood Cancers

"So Ari when I was going through treatment I was out at both Sloan Kettering and MD Anderson and you see the devastation of this disease I would be sitting there waiting for radiation and chemotherapy and one moment that really stuck out to me as I was getting treatment one day and I was talking to this woman and she told me she'd been given basically a month or two to 11 and she'd been dealing with the disease forever And it's just kind of hit me because mine had been diagnosed early at stage one That even though we've made tremendous advancements against leukemia and lymphoma those advancements aren't enough A lot of people a matter of fact I saw in some of the statistics a third of people don't live 5 years after a diagnosis Is that accurate It is Yeah we're getting closer and closer but yeah just like you said more than a third of patients don't survive after 5 years How many people per year are roughly diagnosed with this dreadful disease these blood cancers leukemia and lymphoma What's the give me a rough idea of how prevalent this problem is I don't have a number on it per year but about a hundred every 180 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer

"Incidentally, that wasn't unintentional, Biden may not know what he had for breakfast or what day it is, but I promise you, he knows that he had a microphone in front of him. He didn't think so many magically turned the mic off. He did it on purpose. He wants to show progressives how tough he is. He wants to say, look at me. They're only taking on Fox News reporters. He disparaged, I think it was Jackie Heinrich last week from Fox News. They're only going after Fox reporters. Well, now they're going to have to start going after NBC and chuck Todd, I guess, since chuck Todd, oh, by the way, who was also famously called an SOB by president Trump. Chuck Todd looked into the camera Sunday morning and said, America essentially despises the Biden administration. He looked into the cameras and Americans don't think the guy's competent. Americans don't think the guy is a good commander in chief. What was it 5% of people think that Biden's doing a better job than expected? 5%. So even chuck Todd, that SOB looks I'm kidding, I'm kidding, I'm just quoting Trump, even chuck Todd. Is turning. On the Democrats, and this administration.

And I think that bet is turning out to be right in a lot of senses. As a parent, I think at 30 right, which is parents are frustrated. They're sick of a lot of these mandates.

Can the School Boards Be Beat?

"Charlie, how do I push back against my local school board? How do I push back against my local school board and all the nonsense that they're doing with masking and quarantining? Well, we have a great clip to play here, and we're going to play it in its entirety. It's actually someone who spoke out and the Naperville school district, and that is in the suburbs of Chicago. Every parent should be showing up to school boards across the country. You should have a zero tolerance policy if your child is required to wear a mask. There is no epidemiological reason at all whatsoever, especially at the phase that we're in right now, given the natural immunity widespread amongst many other reasons that your child should be forced to wear a mask. And there is zero reason whatsoever to let me say this differently. There is great concern that mandatory masking will have significant and serious damage. To your child and their ability to function and communicate. Let's go to cut one O four. It's a little long, but I want you to listen to this. This is a student who showed up at the school board, Naperville, school board, and decided to speak their mind to play tape. Thank you for teaching students that our own mental health is much less important than making triple vaccinated adults feel safe. Thank you for teaching me that even the most minute risk is not worth taking. Life is best when you take the path of least resistance with no chance of failure and definitely no chance of catching a cold. Thank you for not reaching out to the students, ask how we feel about masks because if you did, the majority of students would say that they hate masks. And then you might second guess your decision to make us wearable. Thank you for allowing me to experience the anxiety associated with never seeing facial expressions. Thank you for teaching us that we should never question authority or think critically, but instead we should follow whatever the people in charge tell us to do. Obedience is best. I realize now that thinking for yourself is overrated and not really necessary when you can just make decisions based on fear. Thank you for pushing your irrational fears and anxieties on me. Because I didn't already have enough to worry about. I realize now how easy I had it when I only had to worry about my classes, my grades, SAT, and getting into college. Thank you for teaching me that being a morally superior person, only requires that I cover my face for 8 hours a day. And that the most morally superior people were two masks, or even three masks. As you know, seats around us, Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, Michigan, and Minnesota, which have two and a half times more students than Illinois. Don't force cats. Don't force kids to mask. I'm with you, though. These states are out of control. Recklessly putting kids at risk of misery and death every day. Masks work, even if these states have the same outcomes as Illinois. Speaking of data, thank you for seeing silent without masks about masking despite the fact that COVID has a very high survival rate in kids my age. Who needs data anyway, though? We all know that it will never be safe to see anyone's face ever again. I mean, give that girl a metal. My goodness. I gotta give her credit. The sarcasm is so incredibly effective. When I speak at school boards a little more direct, but she's right. What we're teaching our kids, path of at least resistance, never take risks. Don't look at people's faces. Imagine you're in Naperville school board member, and they thought no one would cover this. I'm a little afraid about one thing though. I'm afraid that this poor young girl is gonna get raided by the FBI and being called a domestic terrorist because she disagrees. And you know what she makes a great point and Wisconsin and Minnesota and Iowa. They do not require masks on their kids and yet Illinois has the same

"On today's show we break down the revelations from the wall street journal's report on instagram plus the story about nikki manashian. Vaccines unfortunately keeps on giving yet. Do you ever want to hear the term ball gates stick around. I guess but first. Despite the grumbling by some over pandemic safety measures voters in california. Tuesday night appeared to send the message to governor avenue. Sim that his policies were the right way to go but no is not the only thing that was expressed tonight. I want to focus on what we said. Yes to as a statement we said yes to science we said yes to vaccines they said yes to ending this pandemic. Oh yes we did. That was newsom late. Tuesday night after easily beating back a recall effort by a margin as wide as the four zero. Five freeway gideon. It seems like how he handled the pandemic where he was. One of the most proactive governors early on and the state's current trajectory was a major factor in his victory. Yeah long gone. I guess is the memory of french laundry etc so forth So right as it stands over. Sixty percent of the state voted against the recall. According to some exit polling and more on the ground reporting the pandemic was the number one issue on voters minds. And if that's accurate it sends a pretty strong political message for democrats. Even those who are outside of california in terms of how they can and likely will continue to present their handling of the pandemic mandates etc to drive the point home in president. Biden's statement about the victory. He said in part quote this vote is a resounding win for the approach. That newsom and i share to beating the pandemic. Yes we all want to leave our homes for real. This time to that point biden was also focused on the issue of vaccine mandates yesterday. What was going on at the federal level. He was He met with the top executives of microsoft's disney kaiser permanente and others these are all companies that have at least voice support for the administration's mandate plan. Which has a reminder requires companies with one hundred or more employees to have everybody vaccinated or have employees do weekly testing if they don't get vaccinated is actually still being formally put together by the labor department so that is only a plan for now and the idea of this biden meeting with the executives was to demonstrate success in uptake among employees of these companies after the respective announcements were made and to also encourage other workplaces to pursue the same strategies the vaccine requirements work more companies or instituting. Them even at fox news require. And i'm not being facetious when i say that. But it's interesting that they've stepped forward and done that as well interesting is right at. This meeting happened. After a poll released from monmouth university found that about sixty percent of respondents said they support vaccination requirements for people like teachers federal employees healthcare workers etc. But there are still some questions about the specifics of the order coming from the executive branch that we are waiting to see and vaccine. Mandates are coming for even more people other than just private businesses and their employees. What's new there. Yes so on. Tuesday the us citizenship and immigration services said that new immigrants to the country needs to be fully vaccinated as of october first and then army officials put out a more extensive plan about what they're doing on tuesday. They said that all active duty units have to be vaccinated by december fifteenth. And those who refuse to do so without an exemption could actually end up being dismissed and even with all the encouragements and requirements. There is still some resistance in various sectors. Of course what's going on with those folks. Okay so for one. The la times has been reporting that over twenty six hundred lapd. Employees have indicated that they are going to try to get religious exemptions for new rules requiring vaccinations and then there are hundreds more doing so for medical reasons and that in total could be something. Like a quarter of the workforce believe it. I mean it is interesting that follows a federal lawsuit filed this past weekend by six. Lapd employees against the city saying that vaccine mass mandates violate rights to privacy and due process. These are folks who are quite familiar with violations of due process. So maybe it's to be believed. And as of tuesday. Something like fifty. Four percent of lapd staff have allegedly been at least partially vaccinated which is quite a bit below the city in states overall levels that also yesterday. Espn reported that the players association of the nba has not budged from its demand that players not be faced with a vaccine requirement. Something like eighty five percent are said to be back soon already though that also in that report was something else that job doubts me local requirements in places like san francisco in new york. Say that players for franchises that are based there will need to be vaccinated. Apparently we're just about a month away from the new season starting so we'll keep an eye on that and where we with. Vaccinations countrywide now. I mean we are speaking on a day. Where the latest mind. Boggling statistic is that one in five hundred americans have died from cova nineteen and according to the cdc we are still averaging well over twelve hundred deaths per day. Yeah mind. boggling is right in infuriating honestly so. Cdc data indicates that about fifty four percent of the us population is fully vaccinated at this point. Unfortunately it does seem that the uptick. Vaccinations we saw in august might have been fleeting for now at least because those rates appear to have slowed down. That's according to a bloomberg article that we can link to and this is all happening before tomorrow's meeting by the fda with an advisory board where officials are expected to vote on whether to approve a booster of the pfizer shot more on that and everything else soon but let's turn to a series of developing stories about facebook and instagram. Oh yes a few days ago. We mentioned a headline about a recent wall street journal. Report that said. The company gave almost six million high profile users protection from the company's content. Moderation rules folks like elizabeth warren candice owens brazilian soccer player neymar and obviously donald and younger donald. It seems like this plan was well intentioned at one point but as my granny always said the road to false stories about democrats eating babies and hell is paved with good intentions. She really did always but now we have even more information that basically says contrary to how zuckerberg has portrayed things publicly. facebook knows in quote acute detail that it's platforms are full of flaws that cause harm and often lacks the will or ability to address them. That checks out for me and where and how are we actually getting all these new details so all of the reporting on what i'm sharing today comes from the street journal. They have an ongoing series of articles. Podcast episodes that we can lead to our show. Notes called the facebook files. It's an investigative project in which they reviewed a host of internal facebook communications including research reports online employee discussions in drafts of presentations to senior management and interviewed dozens of current and former employees. It's not clear how the publication got access to the files but they say at least some of the documents they reviewed have been turned over to the securities and exchange commission and to congress by someone seeking federal whistleblower protection. What i've shared.

There would need to be a vast transformation and technology the energy industry and the way people live moreover it would require the electric grid to undergo a major makeover to transport power across the country.

Meanwhile starbucks has revealed that the one thing that scares them more than freelance with laptop chargers as employees who want to unionize a burgeoning unionization effort at a few starbucks locations in buffalo. New york has provoked an outside response by the company involving mandatory anti union meetings and quote listening sessions high ranking executives have reportedly started dropping by the buffalo locations to help out and or appear to be buddies. This includes even the president of starbucks north america. Which has eight thousand locations. All this suggests starbucks is worried that the united effort will spread to other stores which makes sense since the original three cafes in buffalo said they would vote to unionize making them the first us locations to do so to more. Cafes in buffalo have joined in workers have cited chronic understaffing exacting performance metrics and lax safety standards during the pandemic as motivations for seeking to form a union on september twentieth.

The protests aims to block commercial logging of old growth forest on the south west vancouver island and since april of this year it has led to the arrest of eight hundred. Sixty six activists. Protesters have gotten creative. Doing things like chaining themselves to logs and suspending themselves in trees in the process. Also stealing my idea for woodland circus soleil. But they have my blessing Officers in the royal canadian mounted police have been sent to respond to the protests and faced wide criticism for their use of excessive force against the activists. Demonstrators are hoping for swift action from the government to protect the last remaining sections of forest. I'd like canada. Was supposed to be better as what we thought.

"Let's wrap up with some headlines. Head lands department of justice is launching an investigation into the police department phoenix arizona. It will look into whether officers there have been systematically using excessive force discriminating against or unlawfully seizing the belongings of people experiencing homelessness. The phoenix police department has been widely criticized in recent years for its treatment of protesters demonstrating against police brutality. And its high number of officers shootings this investigation marks. One of the first time the justice department will be focusing on the constitutional rights of unhealthy people in a civil investigation. It's also the third civil investigation into police departments brought under the biden administration. Similar investigations into the police. Department of minneapolis in louisville are still ongoing looking now into the incident pitch dark leave of bad climate change news as always wildfires continue to rage around the world since late.

Put olympia the birthplace of the olympic games endanger with firefighters working through wednesday night to protect the archaeological site. The dixie fire is one of ninety six that are currently burning in the us and is currently also the sixth largest fire in california's history. Really a whole news a hope that everybody is okay but we have some decidedly more lighthearted news coming up in what is most definitely a theme in my company has life. A bottle of whisky has gotten into some trouble. The state department is looking into the whereabouts of a bottle of the former secretary of state by the government of japan and twenty nine. It's valued at five thousand eight hundred dollars and could raise ethics concerns for pompeo. Since american officials aren't allowed to accept gifts from foreign governments for his part pompeo and says he has no recollection of the pricey foods foresee and described the state department inquiry last night as quote crazy to all interesting choice of words here by pompeo since crazy talk is a known side effects of getting absolutely blasted off the juice cars worth of japanese alcohol. An ethics violation would not be surprising from pompeo since the previously got called out by state department. Inspector general for making non work related requests for employees. That happened after he successfully lobbied trump to fire a different inspector general who is investigating him as well. I don't understand why just like buy a new one dude like if you if this is truly lost get a get a new one. It's not loss. He rank it. We all know where it went but like yeah just replace it move on. Why are we talking. Yeah i. I don't understand this. The world's new best job is as a party detective. Let me explain. The spanish island getaway has shut down. Its famous clubs as a cova precaution.

"It's wednesday wad squad. Today we are doing a segment called the solution where we propose a fix to a news story that has created chaos in our world a belligerent. Air traveler had to be duct tape to his seat last week on a frontier airlines flight from philadelphia. To miami to very rowdy towns twenty two year old maxwell bury reportedly groped chests of two female flight attendants gross then tried to punch a male flight attendant in the face in a defense of his behavior. That makes my throat hurt to listen to. He said this parish our walking. God want if you didn't hear. He said his parents are worth more than two million dollars. Which is great. But it's definitely not i could. Have you arrested money for its part. Frontier airlines has put the employees involved in duct taping. Mr berry on paid leave saying they didn't follow protocol. Unruly passenger behavior has skyrocketed during the pandemic often in connection with airline mask mandates. So for guys like twenty two year old bury. Here's the solution airlines who defined out the net worth of every passengers parents. And if it's more than two million dollars duct tape them to their seats just to be careful now. This rule is not going to be popular at first especially among people whose parents just so happen to have two million dollars but it will cause bad behavior to decline and soon it will probably become a kind of satis symbol where everyone on. The plane tries to impress and befriend the people who are fully duct taped. Who will only be able to signal their approval by tapping their feet or lightly wiggling their unrestrained fingers of which there will be to at maximum. That is just protocol. Children of non millionaires might start sneaking duct tape on board. So they can you know self restrain and experienced the intoxicating power looking like someone who hasn't played to flip out at any second and not feel bad about it at all and to save money on tape and to cut down on flight attendant. Rotator cuff injuries from taping hundreds of people every day airlines can just dump glue on every seat in first class. You know a few people whose parents aren't millionaires might get glued by accident but no groundbreaking and innovative. Pergram is perfect folks. Not even this one now. Of course the next question is what will happen in the new world of commercial space. Travel where everybody's parents have two hundred million dollars at minimum. The answer is we should duct tape all those rockets to the ground. Then us all the money. We save on rocket fuel on xtra duct tape for people who are on airplanes. You know what i think could make this extra appealing for people whose parents were two million dollars or more. If you just write the word supreme on the duct tape everybody will want.

"On today's show. Dr abdul el-sayed joins us to talk about vaccinations in the us and some responses to the delta variant plus have headlines but first the latest so please get vaccinated. Now it works. it's free it's never been easier and it's never been more important. Do it now for yourself in the people you care about for your neighborhood for your country it. I sound corny. But it's a patriotic thing to do. Yeah i mean even beyond being patriotic. It's like lifesaving to do he's he. He said that too though. So anyway that was president biden yesterday once again encouraging americans to get vaccinated but of course that plea came. After america fell short of a goal that he set for july fourth. The administration wanted to hit seventy percent of adults in the country with at least one shot of a cove in nineteen vaccine and they came up just short at around sixty seven percent so that's very close but still a little bit missing the mark. Yeah that's right and this came after. The white house used a lot of different tactics to try and reverse those falling vaccination rates while at the same time dealing with the more transmissible delta variant. That is now the dominant strain in the us. In that short speech he gave yesterday biden set in new goal one hundred sixty million people fully vaccinated by the end of this week right now. We're less than two and a half million people away so seems like a possibility and to get there. He emphasized a localized approach to getting people shots like more mobile clinics opportunities to get vaccinated at work. Getting employees paid time off. Vaccinations and more. So we're talking about all of this and everything else going on. We're joined again by. Epidemiologists hosts of america dissected and much much much more dr abdul el-sayed. Welcome again to wad. We're so lucky to have you get in and acuity is such a privilege to be with you all today. Well thank you. We love having you. So let's start with those july fourth goals as we mentioned the country came up just short of seventy percent of adults with the first shot so what strategies to encourage vaccinations. Do you think worked in what might not have well. I mean everybody heard them in and at this point if folks aren't vaccinated one really has to ask what gives i think you know we have this term vaccine hesitancy and i just don't think it's really hesitancy anymore. It's it's really hard into resistance. We have seen though the use of incentives in a pretty profound way whether it was Everything from going to get a free beer in new jersey or or being enrolled into a full tuition scholarship or or or million dollar lottery in places like ohio and most recently in my home state of michigan and it turns out that if you give people an incentive to do the thing that they really ought to do as if you know. Fifteen months under lockdown was not an incentive enough or the potential of dying of a disease that killed six hundred thousand people was not incentive enough. You could also win a million dollars or go to college for free and so those are starting to work. And i think they've had a lot of impact in some communities the reality of it though is like all things pandemic the vaccine has also been politicized in a way that has been really detrimental and When folks take something as simple and lifesaving as safe and effective as a vaccine turn it into some sort of referendum on On their sense of who they are giving their political identity. I think it is really hard to push beyond that said. I really admire a lot of the work that the administration is doing one last point though is also to say that you know i. It's not just folks who are ideologically opposed there are still people For whom there are real barriers. And i think the push That that was just announced yesterday by the vitamin ministration to get a vaccine door to door to get them in the hands of pediatricians and in doctors in in any circumstance even emergency rooms. Somebody comes in and they've got some acute pain you make sure that on their way out. There have been offered a covert vaccine. I think those things are going to be really helpful. And it's important for us. Even as we we think about the ideological opposition to also understand that for a lot of people aren't as easy as they may seem. If you're privileged enough to you know have a car to get where you need to go to be able to take time off work right totally. Throw another million dollars. Toni up keep coming up with millions for people to just do the thing. I'll get a third dose honestly. I really won't get that's not you know. These are just jokes. But i mean if we don't hit seventy percent and we miss out on herd immunity through vaccines like how major of a problem is that. We've seen some other people saying well we'll get there just because enough people will get sick or whatever but like what's the truth man. Well this is starting to become the tale of two pandemics and there is one for people who've decided to get vaccinated we get to go out and have brunch and enjoy our lives as if it was twenty nineteen again with some caveats but for others in communities where people have not gotten vaccinated We continue to see outbreaks outbreaks. Not just of your garden. Variety cove in nineteen Circa july of twenty twenty you're talking about the delta variant which is both meant more transmissible and evidence suggests may also be more deadly and that means that in these communities people are going to continue to struggle with cova nineteen even as In in in major urban centers where there are high degrees of vaccination that people are coming out of the pandemic so to speak well last weekend. Several republican governors got together to urge their residents to get vaccinated but a washington post. Abc poll found that forty seven percent of republicans. Were unlikely to ever get a shot. So is there anything else. That biden could do so. People would put their health before party like. Is it too late for conservatives who've been led astray until like fifteen minutes ago it comes out tomorrow and says that his election was wasn't real. Yeah just like okay. Fine accident every listen. Okay fine plaudits to these republican governors. Because it's crazy. It sounds by doing this. They're risking a lot of political ir an opening themselves up to attack from unfortunately the de facto leader of their party who is the former president donald trump and so need more republicans to step up. But but really i think. Part of this is the goal of putting this vaccine in the hands of primary care. Doctors is really important. One because in a number of rural communities one of the most trusted people in that community is is the primary care. Doc and if that primary care doc can both have a conversation about the vaccine with somebody and then immediately offer it to them before they leave the office that can really be an important source of of of of increasing vaccination rates in some of these communities again if sixteen months in lockdown and six hundred thousand people killed. Doesn't move you at some point. The the real question is what will and also on delta so in recent days johnson johnson said that their vaccine was effective against it. Then we have the health ministry in israel saying that according to some preliminary data they have the pfizer vaccine is still extremely good at preventing the severe disease Although less effective at preventing an infection in the first place. That number was a new update. What should we take away from these developments from different places.

"On today's show. The trump organization is indicted for tax evasion. Plus we'll have headlines but first. The latest yesterday was the last day of the supreme court session aka season finale of scotus and like all reason seasons. I mean sessions of the roberts court. It sucks yeah. I think that that's a fair assessment. But what went down yesterday. Well we got two rulings. One on voting rights in another dark money both went the way that court watchers predicted. They would go six three partisan splits with a conservative majority prevailing. Let's start with the voting rights case berkovitch versus arizona. Because it's best to the worst news out of the way i. The court ruled that an arizona law limiting the way that ballots could be cast does not violate the voting rights act which is a big blow. The justices upheld two of the arizona law's provisions one that outlaws ballot collection by anybody other than caregivers election officials in mail carriers and another that mandated that ballots cast in the wrong precinct. Be thrown out. Voting rights advocates claim that the arizona law effectively suppressed minority votes and the voting rights act. Specifies that no matter what lawmakers intent is making new voting laws if the effect of the law disproportionately impacts non white voters. It violates the ira but the supreme court conservatives decided that part of the vr. A wasn't a thing. Throwing out a lower court ruling in the process in her dissent justice. Elena kagan accused the majority of attempting to rewrite section. Two of the voting rights. Act i mean. I think she's rate So this must be great. News for the republicans in the seventeen states that are currently trying to make laws restrict voting and enshrine their minority rule for another generation. Then there's the other ruling that the supreme court made yesterday so can you tell us about that. one brings me no pleasure to do so akilah. The court ruled against a california law that required charities to disclose to the state the identities of their large donors the same six three ideological split came out in favor of protecting the anonymity of extremely wealthy people who don't want other people to know what wacky causes. They support the seems not good or in the interest of anyone but those very wealthy people and then there was a third big piece of news. out of skoda's yesterday It's that didn't happen erin. what's going on. yeah so yesterday. Eighty two year old liberal justice steven brier did not announce his retirement this despite pressure from liberal groups which comes from the fact that he's eighty fucking two years old and the last time justice. That old didn't retire under a democratic president. Things did not go well for progressive ideology on the highest court in the land. Brier logic is literally how we got justice. Amy kuney barrett. This is literally the most recent possible lesson we could learn about this not learning this lesson. No to have even brighter. Steve and mitch. Mcconnell has straight up bragged about having nobility goals beyond obstructing joe biden's political agenda and promised that he would block biden supreme court nomination so we better hope justice. Briar stays on this planet for long enough while democrats still control the senate or until we can elect war democratic senators next year to make mcconnell's drawl lee gurgling irrelevant because if this is how conservatives handle a six three majority imagine what damage they do seven to akilah next session. We got guns on abortion. Or that's gonna end up great for everybody already is just beginning. We love it. That's the news from dc but akilah moving to new york. Tell us about a story that broke their yesterday. All right so finally some decent news from her busted justice system a so on wednesday. We found out that the trump organization would be charged in yesterday. We got more details. So according to an unsealed grand jury indictment manhattan's. Da office has charged the trump organization and our top financial executive. Alan weisselberg with fifteen years worth of tax evasion. So if you filed a little late go easy on yourself. Goes at least you filed. They pleaded not guilty. Though as the atlantic pointed out. Trump's statement about the matter suspiciously lacked any language about his innocence. Or how he expects to be exonerated. Wow i can't imagine former president trump not being a good or clear writer. That's not a scenario. Yes okay. So what's the da's office alleging. Basically for at least the past fifteen years they believe. Based on tax records at the organization helped executives avoid paying taxes by just paying them under the table and more specifically they believe that weisselberg avoid paying nearly a million dollars in taxes by concealing benefits. He got like a free apartment and tuition payments for his relatives. Not even for him like he didn't learn anything his family got to for free Which is really wild. When you think about that case in texas where that mother is serving time because she sent her kid to a different school district in the one they lived in. Yeah in meanwhile. We have like multimillionaire. Executives being paid as though they're twelve year old cutting grass. The it's really wild crazy So can we expect any perp walks this week. Probably not a so. Weisselberg turned himself in yesterday morning and entered the courtroom in handcuffs. Andy surrendered his passport. So that was probably the extent of the circus. We're gonna get this week new york state's attorney general letitia. James has been a part of the probe that led to these indictments which are the first to come after a nearly three year investigation. And if this case goes the way her other ones have gone. We can expect a trickle of damning information for months re trump and his firm but right now the focus is on the prosecution of weisselberg and could he cut a deal in rat out the former twice impeach president will he even have to the money trail proves the government right well. I have my popcorn at the ready in any event. So we'll let.

"Put together by policy. Yeah so this is truly perplexing The committee will be made up of thirteen members. Eight of whom pelosi will appoint and then five of whom will be picked by republicans. The party that so far has not shown to take that attack on the capital seriously. I don't know why they say but in fact the gop have floated a million alt- endings to the insurrection attempt from their followers back in january. It was antifa. No it was just some peaceful tourists. No actually it was the fbi but not trump's fbi some other secret fbi. These morons are throwing an olive garden's worth spaghetti at the wall trying to make the story stick and now they get to be on the commission to investigate the deadly attempt to overthrow the government. It is actually nonsense but there is a tiny bit of silver lining right. Yeah there is all right so it lies in the fact that no one knows. House minority leader. Kevin mccarthy will actually exercise that right to name republicans to the panel. He hasn't expressed support of a commission at all and the number two house. Republican steve scully said in a memo that the panel quote is likely to pursue a partisan agenda if he really wanted bipartisanship though maybe republicans should have supported that cynic committee instead of killing it. You know there were options but fear not we will likely hear from some republicans seeing as the house committee can subpoena documents and witness testimony. The lunatic house member from georgia miss marjorie. Taylor should probably prepare for the worst and fly somewhere. That they don't extradite. The make of the panel is being discussed as we speak. And many people are looking to the benghazi hearings in which there were seven. Republicans to five democrats as the sort of standard of course. The gop has the ideological consistency of magic eight ball. So they're already saying it's not fair..

"Let's wrap up with some headlines. Head lands ethiopian. Troops retreated from the capital of tigray yesterday declaring a ceasefire in the region. This is one of the latest developments coming out of tigray which has been occupied by ethiopian forces since their november invasions for almost eight months ethiopia has blackout communications from the region. Leaving the rest of the world with only scattered reports of atrocities committed by ethiopian troops. This past week defense forces have been leading a counter attack progressing towards the capital city maclay residents there were reportedly celebrating the return of tigray forces for the first time since the invasion ethiopia said that the ceasefire will last year end of crucial crop season in grave allowing civilian farmers to at least ten to their land in peace. Us forces in iraq were the targets of rocket attacks yesterday following us air strikes on iran backed militia targets in syria and iraq. No casualties were reported following the attacks since the spring iranian backed militias have mounted campaign of drone attacks on the american military presence in iraq that led biden to authorize airstrikes yesterday morning against facilities alleged to be involved in the attacks. Malicious said those strikes killed four of their members. The iraqi government described the air strikes as quote blatant and unacceptable violation of iraqi sovereignty and national security instead. Iraq did not want to become a quote area for settling accounts between the us and iran. The supreme court prove that it's not too late to celebrate pride monthly yesterday handing a small victory to trans students. The court affirmed that students admit. Atlantic states can use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identity by declining to hear an appeal from virginia school board that wanted to ban transported from using men's bathrooms. Lgbtq advocacy groups have worried that the supreme court will take up the case reverse the opinion of a lower court which also ruled in the students favor. Ultimately the issue remains unsettled in other states and conservatives haven't even begun to work through their obsession with afrim so we can expect similar appeals to return to supreme court soon. Goodness well good for the trans kids. That's what's up The social media called facebook evaded another attack yesterday when a federal judge throughout two lawsuits filed by the federal trade commission in forty eight state attorneys general that accused facebook of antitrust violations the accused facebook of wielding a social media monopoly and acquiring apps to crush competition which seems to me but a judge of the us district court for the district of columbia ruled that they provided insufficient evidence of a monopoly and additionally said the states had let too much time pass before challenging facebook's purchase of instagram and twenty twelve in. What's app in two thousand. Fourteen lawyers continue to be to relax this case. One of the most promising antitrust lawsuits against big tech so the ruling is a setback for anyone who worried that apps for sharing. Status updates are now more powerful than most countries already. Lawmakers indeed are using the ruling as an opportunity to call for reform of antitrust laws. I hope they do it.

Can you talk about that tension over. What pride actually represents who it should include. I feel like that's sort of the broad conversation that we are having. The history pride you know is is radical. You know it was a protest you know it stood for actually human rights material. Reality changes for for people to become so sanitized. Over the years and so many of the organizers the creative reclaimed pride coalition which puts on march do come from like those old ways they come from. Act up actually come from heritage or pride.

For the indigenous people and environmental activists who have been fighting against the project for decades. Had it been completed. The eight billion dollars crude oil pipeline would have stretched twelve hundred miles from alberta to nebraska potentially threatening tribal lands and water sources in. Its way now. The pipe can be re purposed to help carry the tears fossil fuel executives directly into the one of the many contributors projects. Demise was biden's decision on his first day in office who cancel permit which trump had previously granted. Activists have already turned their attention to the end bridge line. Three pipeline which also will stretch from to the us midwest and has been drawing similar criticism to the now defunct keystone excel from north america to central america in this past week alone. Five prominent opposition leaders in nicaragua have been arrested key. Point four of them happen to be the presidential candidates running against current president daniel ortega in the country's upcoming quote unquote he election. His regime has always been hostile to opposition. But it has recently been ramping up efforts. Crackdown on dissent using a so called. Guillotine law passed last year that allows the arrest citizens without evidence. The biden administration responded to the arrests by sanctioning. Four of the regime's top officials ortega is seeking to win also quote unquote a fourth term in november to further solidify his dictator status and seeking dictators.

There's of as much as fifty percent over last year. Due in part to a driver shortage plus a writer surplus but drivers don't get any percentage of these higher fares and instead receive a flat three five or ten dollar bonus during price surging. This leaves drivers in the dark about why they're making they're making it usually leads to lower earnings. All this is important writer literacy for us as we spend seventy dollars for a nine minute ride plus free men's if we're lucky but it's notable in a political context tube in most states driver. Payment has been decoupled from fares for a while but in california. The new system was only adopted. Back in april after rideshare companies successfully lobbied voters against classifying drivers as employees uber wanna drivers to be seen as in control of their earnings so they paid out a direct percent fairs and let drivers set prices. Once the company had no incentive to offer these options. they took them away anyway.

"We're just a couple of weeks into two thousand twenty and the news is already moving at a break neck speed. We have Iran. We have impeachment. We have earthquakes. We have international plane. Crashes like we just discussed and we have one story that is flying underneath the radar empowered by President Trump's executive order that grants local governments veto power over refugee resettlement settlement. Texas governor. Greg Abbott is now barring new refugees from settling in Texas. That makes him the first governor to make use of trump's executive order so so this is an extension of the trump administration's crackdown on legal immigration. A hallmark of the trump administration's actions the United States is now accepting only eighteen thousand refugees as a year which is the lowest level since the program began for decades ago. Can you give a little bit more background here. Though on what refugee resettlement looks like in Texas and how we think it would change now. Yeah so just WanNa start the implications of this news new decision They're not great Texas has led the way since two thousand ten in total number of refugees taken then so without their help. The onus is going to be on other states to take in more refugees and since the majority of these refugees coming in through the southern border. It's likely that they'd be relocated to other southern states. None of which have the resources that Texas has With that in mind refusing refugees isn't just forcing them to find homes elsewhere. It also also keeps refugees at a heightened risk for human trafficking and that's according to the UNHCR that's the UN's refugee agency and it should be reiterated. Refugees are not so easily entwined in the legal immigration debate refugees apply for status and must a rigorous standard to be even considered a refugee. They have to have been forced to flee leader country because of persecution or violence and they have to have well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race religion nationality political opinion or membership in a particular social group so it does just seem especially callous to reject these individuals who've already lost everything. Yeah I mean people should be going out of their way to help them and this isn't the first time that Governor Abbott has posed settling refugees in Texas in two thousand fifteen. He actually sued the Obama Administration to stop the resettlement of Syrian refugees. In the state. Yeah I mean boasting about how many refugees you've taken in. Since the end of two thousand ten when you tried to see your way out of helping is very real choice. And that's exactly what Abbott did when he wrote to the trump administration with refugee to write in that lawsuit he cited security concerns. Fear that people with ties to terrorist groups. Were exploiting the refugee program will. The lawsuit was unsuccessful in court. Do you WanNa talk about why sure in the plainest terms. Those fears are entirely unfounded. No no refuge. Terrorists has killed a single person in a terrorist attack on. US soil since nineteen seventy six from nineteen seventy five through the end of two thousand fifteen the annual chance of being murdered on US soil in a terrorist attack committed by refugee was a miniscule one in three point six four billion per year to put that in context. There's a one eight million chance that I would be murdered by a shark in America this year and the beaches still super-popular can't be there right now we are basically at the beach Yes so maybe. Abbott should've spent his time on a real risk. And you know sued to outlaw sharks instead. I duNNo. Draw seven this time. It's dolphins well. According to leaders offers from the National Immigration Forum citing Twenty fifteen study by new American economy refugees in Texas had a combined spending power of four point six billion dollars and and paid a total of one point. Six billion dollars in taxes So you know even if a moral argument isn't your cup of tea. Any red blooded American capitalist would agree that banning refugees is a bad idea. I wish that were the case with red blooded American capitalism revealing. It's clearly not so what is next. Though is this decision actually gonNA stand in Texas so the decision might not be final. which is a big relief? governor Abbot veto that resulted in banning. New Refugees could be reversed as soon as next next week when a federal judge in Maryland is expected to rule on whether trump exceeded his authority with that refugee executive order. So now that case You know. Obviously we're GONNA have a lot more at stake and we are continuing to follow this story to let you know what happens with that Maryland. Federal judge ruling now for some ads. The world can obviously be crazy and stressful at times. It sure is for me often. I know people say that.

"This show developments in Iran in Texas fans refugees refugees and then some headlines in the days since the trump administration killed Qasem Soleimani. There has been little clarity about why or if the drone strike was necessary members of Congress are seeking answers with some hoping to also restrict the president's ability to escalate any future conflict at issue. was there an imminent threat to the US from Iran Iran and specifically from Seoul money. Let's start with what trump said on Friday to Fox News. I can reveal that I believe it would have been four embassies and I think that that probably Baghdad already started. They were really amazed that we came in with that kind of a force. We came in with very powerful force and drove him out. You know that ended almost immediately but Baghdad certainly would have been deleted but I think it would have been for embassy could have been military. Bases could have been a lot of other things too but it was eminent and then all of a sudden he was gone the way he said that last August but on Sunday his own administration officials couldn't exactly actually backup that assertion. Can you clarify the was the specific threat that the president share with Fox News about four. US embassies being under threat also shared with Congress. Why was different? What the president said was? He believed that it probably could have been attacks against additional embassies. I shared that view. I know other members of national security team team should up you. That's what I deployed. Thousands of American paratroopers to the Middle East to reinforce our embassy in Baghdad and other sites throughout the region probably could have been that is that sounds more like an assessment than a specific tangible threat with I'd decisive piece of intelligence or the president didn't say a tangible he didn't site a specific piece of evidence what he says he probably he believes one. I didn't see one with regard to four embassies. What I'm saying is I share the president's view that probably my expectation was they were going to go after our embassies? The embassy is the most prominent display of American presence in a country. Okay so that was defense secretary mark s spur on face the nation as he said that interview he's not ruling out that something could have may be happened but he didn't really sound so confident that there is a plan fully in the works. I mean it sounds quite a bit different than what trump himself was saying. This was also something that some members of Congress said they didn't hear in a briefing with administration officials last week. Is it asking too much. They figure this out before Jones Drake. No I don't think so So what's the next thing that we're expecting from Congress. I mean there's still a lot of outstanding any questions that need answers well after the House voted on their war powers resolution last week The Senate might take their own version soon. The goal that basically is congressional authorization if trump is going to do anything further or if there's necessity to do anything further in Iran but what many members are saying in addition to just figuring out how to restrain trump on. This is that this is brought up a moment to kind of re recognized Congress's role authorization and oversight for military for in general typically. What a functioning and well orchestrated government would be doing that for too long moments like this spring up because members won't take that role in this process seriously enough? I haven't any party. Made a full throated effort to get a new authorization for military force. Well Margaret as you know. I have been working on this since I came to the Senate and I have the same concern when I came to the Senate in two thousand thirteen. I criticized President Obama for taking US military action in Libya without Congressional authorization for going on Isis in Iraq and Syria without congressional authorization. I will say this when I started on on this crusade. Six seven years ago very few people were interested in it but in the last year the good news is finally members of both parties in both houses have started to step up and take the congressional responsibility seriously. That was Senator Tim. Kaine who has introduced a resolution on the P. The president's war powers in Iran and in the Senate and we already know that there are at least a couple Republicans who are on canes side which means that the numbers and the Senate are actually somewhat a rosy looking for this to actually pass an overall I think that a lot of members of Congress are trying to think this stuff through and have I've been over the years. There were also some updates on the tragic crash of Ukrainian plane Iran. Let's talk about that for a second because yeah yeah. It's I mean completely. Insane every single development of it so basically over the weekend Iran's military said that it had accidentally shot down the plane killing one hundred seventy six people that were on aboard. They claimed that the flight took a turn towards a military base and given the tense situation with the United States during that time it was hit unintentionally with a missile. The American and Canadian officials already believe that this was the case but Iran had said that at first the plane went down to mechanical issues. It was a Boeing so I don't know if that's why they thought it would be an easy escape. Yeah yeah now. They're still like a lot of questions. that are left unanswered about this. That'll probably be discovered in the investigation. According into Washington Post report Ukraine actually knew that the plane had been shot down even before Iran made that public admission but they had this crazy thought process. That's where they wanted to tip toe carefully and make sure that if they said that or if they reveal that there weren't any other heightened tensions during an already tense situation. And and you know that also there could be cooperation with Iran and other agencies that are sort of involved in the investigation. The one thing though after I was reading all this that I was like really confused and shocked by why planes were taking off. Sort of Willy. Nilly in the hours after those strikes are happening. Yeah I mean I think that anyone and would say that if there was some sort of military conflict happening in their country probably not be great. Does this have lights from everywhere. It's it's it's just wild. Yeah I love to find out Y Y you know. It wasn't completely called off or whose authority that was but yeah a deeply unnecessary tragedy. We'll keep you updated on what has learned from the investigation and then what happens.

"a day" Discussed on What A Day

"On today's show. It's our last show of the year end. Also a debate beat recap special all right last night right here in Los Angeles California at Loyola Marymount University seven democratic. Eric presidential candidates took the stage in the final debate of the year and of the decade. Hell yea for three hours. They debated about a wide variety of topics from the economy to climate change. Too Selfish to healthcare to the war in Afghanistan we're going to get into some key moments and themes of the night but first let's talk about what we thought of the debate. Overall you were there Gideon What was your very up close impressions? I thought it was pretty good. Broadly seemed like people were more prepared. Smaller amount of people longer amount of time means everybody had more chances to talk about stuff in a more in depth way. And I couldn't tell you anything about the LMU campus other than the fact that the layout is extremely confusing. Yeah well I have no comment on that but I will agree with you. I think it was more interesting to have a smaller field on the stage and you know there were more fireworks than ever is my favorite debate. So far yeah all right. Let's get get into the questions from the moderators. Obviously the big news of the week is impeachment as we all know. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on Wednesday. It was the topic of the first question. Russian pose to all of the candidates. That's right and all the front runners at least sort of filtered there responses through the Lens of how they're running their own campaigns so biden talking about impeachment in the context context of restoration of values in the White House Senator Sanders was talking about trump being a liar who sold out working people of the country senator. Warren was funneling it through the Lens of corruption and so on and so forth One of the ones that took out was Senator Amy Klobuchar who answered the question. More directly by talking a little bit about the Senate trial and the need for witnesses to testify there and I would make this case as we face this trial in the Senate if the president claims are that he is so innocent then why why doesn't he have all the president's men testify Richard. Nixon had his top people should be hearing from Mulvaney. Who is the one under oath? Witnesses have said that Mulvaney is the one that said okay. We're going to withhold aid to a fledgling democracy to get dirt on a political opponent hoof and she also so called for John Bolton former national security advisor to testify as well so far Mitch. McConnell has rejected the calls for witnesses just outright and public it was a pretty pretty compelling answer from her though anyway in what we think does impeachment change the state of this race. At all I don't think so I mean I think people knew that it was going to happen. I think it only it changes it from a tactical perspective of some of the senators having to physically be in Washington. DC that's going to be a bit of a challenge for them all right well. The biggest theme of the night's though with candidates they're finally challenging mayor p Buddha judge on everything from his lack of political experience to taking donations from wealthy donors. Your prediction finally finally hit so good for you. Thank you. This is a win for me. I'm one for two now. The reason like we've talked about on the show before that all of this is starting to come to a head now is that Buddha judge has been rising to the top of Iowa polls without the scrutiny that other candidates that he deserves and that has to do with a lot of things who he's fundraise with who was contributing into his campaign. The nature of closed door fundraisers and his prior consulting work so this First Exchange was with Senator Warren on the topic of fundraisers. I've asleep the distinction there being that Warren doesn't do high-dollar fundraisers and Buddha judge is among the candidates. Who Do senator your net worth one hundred times mine now? Supposing that you went home home fueling the holiday spirit. I know this isn't likely but stay with me and decided to go onto Pete for America dotcom and give the maximum allowable by law two thousand one eight hundred dollars would that pollute my campaign because it came from a wealthy person. No I would be glad to have that support. We need the support from everybody. Who is committed to helping hope to feed Donald but obviously response? I do not sell access to my time. I don't do call time billionaires I and billionaires need. I don't meet behind closed doors with big dollar donors. This ought to be an easy step. And here's the problem problem if you can't stand up and take the steps that are relatively easy can't stand up to the wealthy and well-connected when it's relatively easy when you're a candidate then how can the American people believe you're going to stand up to the wealthy and well-connected when you're president and it's really hard I thought that that was one of the most compelling parts of the debate and obviously among Democrats billionaires are a dominant conversation we're having in their their effect facts on the political process And you know Democrats. The future of the Democratic Party is about getting money out of politics. I think this has been a pain point for Pete up until this point I think his charge and his challenge going forward is that he has to make the point that his stances in line with what the rest of the Democratic Party is sort of starting to lean towards right out the top four pulling candidates right now there are two Sanders and Warren. Who Don't do the fundraisers and that's how they've clearly delineated themselves and then on the other side is Buddha Judge Biden and the way the Buddhists defending himself here is that before her presidential bid? Warren had transferred money from her senate campaign some of which was raised in that high dollar fundraising format Matt. So the defense. He's mounting is that she sort of Johnny come lately on the issue and the counter. Argument is often offered. When you hear this sort of people people always say quote unquote purity tests What those people are saying? Is that basically. Any amount of money is going to be thrown at a Democrat from the trump campaign from the RNC so they need to take money Democratic candidate from any person by any means possible. Doing whatever they can to try to match them so they could just vote for Bloomberg big because he's already got the money that's that's still conclusion truly truly logical conclusion of the argument But Warren was the only candidate to go toe to toe with Buddha. Judge Senator Senator Amy Klobuchar also had a number of changes with him during which she compared her experience and electoral wins to his own. I think winning matters. I think a track record record of getting things done matters and I also think showing our party that we can actually bring people with us have a wider tent have a bigger coalition and yes longer coat tails that matters. Thank you senator. Respond respond to that. If you just go by vote totals maybe what goes on in my city seem small. Do you WanNa talk about the capacity to win. Try Try putting together a coalition to bring you back to office with eighty percent of the vote as a gay dude. And Mike Pence's Indiana again. I would if you if you had one in Indiana that would be one thing you tried and you lost by twenty point. Yeah I mean it was definitely an interesting point of contention and also also the most. I think we heard from any any of the debate. So far right and I mean it gets something fundamental in what has been implicit about the other candidates criticism about Buddha judge edge which is essentially they're asking. Where do you get off thinking that you are ready for this? And we'll sickly referring to there was when Buddha jets ran for state treasurer in Indiana and loss in twenty ten. Obviously he wasn't as much of a figure on the national political scene. Then and one more thing to talk about here going into this debate. We've all been talking about this on the show. Other people have been discussing it too. We knew the lack of diversity on stage was going to be front of mind. Since last night obviously Senator Comal Harris dropped out. Senator Cory Booker or didn't qualify in who he and Castro again was on the debate. Stage in good news moderators didn't shy away from asking about it but Yang had to kind of bear the brunt of it on his own. Yeah yeah the question was directed specifically to him so Yang did actually bring up the mortality rates of black women in childbirth as well as economic disparities and how people of Color and people in poverty are more likely to be affected by climate changing pollutants in their areas Senator Bernie Sanders also Brought that up shortly after her but really it was just comforting to see. The commas message wasn't completely discarded after. She exited the race because she did have a pretty sizable share of the polling. So it's great that you know they didn't just throw the baby out with the bathwater but yeah and it might be nice to see her in the Senate early in the New Year. If impeachment ended up there I'd like to see her questioning the witnesses. That's her strengthen. She does a good job of it so yeah for sure. So here's Yang actually on the lack of diversity on the debate stage and the question is why AM I. The Lone candidate of color on this stage than five percent of Americans donate to political campaigns. You know what you need to donate to political campaigns disposable income the I think there's a really strong point But this debate also had moments of levity and bizarre commentary the whole Internet seized on this wine cave save wind cave moment so it was started by Senator Elizabeth Warren. She was referencing. These photos that were kind of circulating on social media from Mayor Pete's very very lavish fundraiser. That was in what appeared to be a wine cave. There were Swarovski crystals dripping from this upside down tree and there was merlot being poured softly the background. Everyone got their licks in on the wine cave part but Amy Klobuchar who was never really shy about just pivoting. According to a weird joke she had something to say. Come here to listen to this argument. I came here to make a case for progress and I have never even been to a wine cave. I've been to the wind cave in South Dakota which I suggest you go do. Ah I can definitely relate to making random refs in conversations and debates by the way sanders team was actually at the debate wearing wearing shirts. That said Pete's Wine Cave Dot Com. If you don't have time to click on that you don't feel like doing it. It's his fundraising as obviously so another strange moment that happened. Spend the final question before closing. Statements felt a little half baked to us and it was asking candidates to either give a gift for the holidays or ask for forgiveness for something. Should have been more elaborate preplanned secrets or something like that. But Andrew Yang ended up finding a way to plug his own book. Yeah he's a candidate after my own heart is the. US obviously time for you and yours for the holidays but The two women candidates on stage warn closure chose to apologize for being passionate net and being misunderstood which I think is sort of an ethnography and gender roles in the country. Unfortunately but I think that's definitely more on the moderators than on in Clovis or Warren. You know they were asking something that no one thinks of as a fun question. Yeah asking.
