"acting director" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated

"One more line of continuation of mind. We're talking about former acting director of ice Tom Holman about the horrific situation that our southern border. I think the number is around 2.5 million is what we've come up with in the last two years of illegal crossing. In the last 21 months, since Joe Biden took over, it's not those 2.5 million that I want to ask you about Tom Holman. The number they also came out with this around 900,000 known got aways. I don't know if enough attention is being paid to that part because the God of ways have to be the biggest threats. The ones who are turning themselves in and saying, oh, I'm seeking asylum and then they know they're going to be released into the interior. They're not the ones we're worried about. The ones who can't get caught and say I'm seeking asylum are the ones I worry about because I don't know what they're doing here. I don't know what they're bringing in. That part of the story is not being told. Well, the number actually just sent over a man. Okay. They've got over 1 million, got away. No one got a waste. As Joe might became president. Now, think about that. That's the people that came across the border who are not arrested. We're not vetted. And these are torn between the caught on video, they call that camera trap, they call them drone traffic or sent to traffic. So these are people who can respond to show overwhelmed during the series, processing these family groups. So I've got over a million gallons. Think about this for a moment. They've arrested 81. Known as suspected terrorist FBI screening database, 81. Now, if the rest of 81, how many of that one man that did want to get arrested wanted to get away? How many of them expect the terrorists? Because Borat controls the rest of people from a 160 different countries. Some of these countries are sponsors of terrorism. That's right. 81. So if you don't think, a single one of that over 1 million people that could come this could come across that country and they did a law enforcement. They didn't come to our country to sponsor terrorism and didn't come here to do us harm, then you're ignoring the data. I'm just telling, I'm just going by chances of percentages. I don't know how many terrorists got away. I'll tell you this. Someday this country is going to find out. And it's going to be a bad day for this country. Well, you know, and that's the unknown. You're exactly right. We don't know how many of the terrorists are among those 1 million got away. We also don't know how many of them are the drug runners in the cartel members who are bringing these lethal amounts of fentanyl across the border as well. Again, the ones who are just coming here and trying to quote unquote escape the poverty of their own country. They don't mind being apprehended because they know they're going to be set free. And then told to come back later, the catcher release program. But the ones that are carrying the drugs. The ones that are carrying the weapons, the ones that are trafficking the human beings as well. Those are the God ways. Don't know how many as you pointed out, but that's kind of the terrifying aspect of it. We have no earthly idea how many criminals are actually making it through. Well, you know, just it's common sense, right? The same two years, you guys historically immigration. You guys historic drug launched in the United States as killing historic number of Americans. And that's why I say all the time. They keep attacking president Trump and even me. As a Trump administration that we were inhumane, we're a cruel. Let me tell you something. When we had a little immigration down 83%. When we had illegal immigration at a four year low, how many women weren't being sexually assaulted by the cartels? How many children were on the river? How many Americans were dying of drug overdoses? How many millions of dollars for the cartels not making every day? President Trump, how many known specs of church weren't coming to cross that border? President Trump's policies gave us the most secure border my lifetime and it stayed lives since Joe Biden become president. We have over a 100,000 Americans dying from drug overdoses. You get over 1300 migrants have died on your soil since he's been at our House, which is a record by far. President Biden's policies are killing people. President Trump's policy saved lives a secure border saves lives. Tom Holman, former acting director of ice joining us talking about this southern border. Last thing for you on this, Tom. There was allegation, I guess, is what we'll call it, that was made a couple of days ago that the Secretary of State Tony blinken has recommended and this is from the president of Mexico. He alleged that blinken proposed a North American alliance, a North American union, essentially erasing the southern border, racing the northern border and allowing Canada, Kennedy the United States and Mexico to all the operate essentially like the EU does. Can you talk about what that would do to national security for the American people if this were to come through? Well, look, you can have national security border security. It's impossible. We have to control and know what's coming into this country. And who's coming in this country? I mean, president Reagan said it for your best, right? He said, you're not a country, and we don't have borders. And look, we proven that. I've worked for 6 presidents around the Reagan. Every president I work for, even Clinton, Obama. They took some actions to try to secure the border. Something more than others, of course, Noah did more than president Trump, but President Biden is the first president in the history of this nation who came into office and unsecured a border. Who the hell does that? I mean, what president says, I want more ill immigration. I want more of you with drug flow. I want more of a ghost desk. I want more no respect there is coming across the border. Our border is so important to our national security. And it's just on the board, it's airports too. So it'd be devastating every match security risk of use of force. It's just a shocking thing to hear the American Secretary of State propose a racing literally the sovereignty and the borders of this country by forming a North American union. Tom Holmes and I know you're fighting very hard to protect people and to protect our border. Thank you very much, my friend. Doctor trudy flee her here with the 5G home recovery podcast.

Sanctuary Cities Forced to Talk About Open Borders

"I want to ask your opinion on a couple of things. Eric Adams, the mayor of New York has been going crazy, lately, completely demanding federal resources saying we have to stop sending these plane loads and bus loads of migrants to New York City into New York State. We just can't deal with it. It's an overflow. It's a crisis. All of these things, and yet, meanwhile, he is cutting commercials talking about the wonderful glorious treatment that they are giving these individuals. They are putting up tent cities that are not ten cities, they're giving them four star hotel rooms and taking care of them in extraordinary ways. How are we supposed to read the impact of a legal immigration on our southern border when these people are being brought into American cities and they're getting mixed messages from leaders like that. You know, I think he's having trouble, you know, justifying what he's doing to his base, right? He gets that national theory. When we first started, we got Democrat marriage, and democratic governors talk about this crisis. And that was and that was bad for the Democratic Party. So I'm sure you've got a few phone calls to The White House. Tell him he's gonna stop complaining. Because he's bringing more attention to the border because before the governor of Texas governor of Florida started shipping these people, you think you're the media talking about it. I think what Abbott and descent desantis did was genius because they got democratic married Democrat government start talking about integration right before the midterms. Should they put this on a front date every newspaper? You know, it was great, but I think at the same time the Democrat mayors and governors are being attacked by their own because they're claiming to be a sanctuary city. But the reason this issue and put it on the front page, I think they're getting hit both sides, but I think what governors, the governors did was great in the out of continuum. Because you got a call out these sanctuary cities that couldn't be sanctioned. They want to be sanctuary for criminals. They don't want ice in their jails, but they don't want to be sanctuary for people who claim asylum this. It doesn't make sense. So we're caught up at hypocrisy of these cities. You know,

How Lasers Can Stop Iranian Drones

"You just beat me to the answer before I ask the question, what can you do then? Because you're right about the abilities and the tactical abilities for these things to hide into strike in various areas that the Iron Dome can not protect. So tell me about the lasers. Well, the lasers are in advanced state of development. The rumor is that they'll be operational about two years who are in a race here. To get them operational. And that will affect certainly Iran's timetable as well. But a laser can cover a huge swath of the sky. And pick out a drone attack within a fraction of a second. And eliminate it using concentrated enemy. And energy, you know, there's also an economic factor here. Financial factor. David sling each bucket cost a $1 million. For Iron Dome, each of the chapter costs up $60,000. Iran is sending thousands of these drones at you. Bees coming at you. You have to be able to have that interception that's also economically feasible. The laser does, each glass of the laser may cost potentially pennies. It's light.

The Danger of Iranian Drones

"Talk about Israeli security for just a moment if I can. Because I know that people in Israel are worried about Iranian drones being used by Putin in Kyiv. We know the attacks that they're using. What is the likelihood of Israel being targeted by Iranian drones? About a 100%? Okay. About a 100%. The Iranians are doing this now to help the Russians. They're doing these developments during to attack us. This is just, you know, a sideline for them. And we're probably a way of making money and financing the project, but the design to end run the Iron Dome system, which takes out a standoff missile, that's what it goes up in the air and comes down. We also have a system known as David sling. It was developed with the United States that can intercept a cruise missile, sophisticated technology, cruise missile can be guided by joystick. A drone is a completely different level of threat. A drone can hide behind a tree. A drone can hide the head of fire hacker. And coming at you any different way, because it's very, very difficult to intercept. Nothing we have that we're developing is a laser.

We Are Witnesing the Transformation of Our Country

"Obama, when he was in office declared that they were going to fundamentally transform America. You don't fundamentally transform something you love. You strengthen it. You support it. You don't tear it down. You don't change it into something else. They're trying to change it into something else. And in the last 21 months, this is what I said to the group last night. The last 21 months, there has been more damage done to the foundational building blocks of America. The constitutional foundation, then I think could be done in 20 years, or I would have thought could have been done in 20 years. In 21 months, look at where inflation is. Look at where the economy is. We're in a literal recession with two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. Look at the southern border. Look at the violent crime rates in America's cities, all across the country, from one end to the other. Look at where we are in our schools with indoctrination. The gender queer theory being pushed by the teacher's unions and pushed through administrators and teachers right to the kids. Parents being left out of the equation. All of these things, all of the damage that has been done to this country in just 21 months. Now try to imagine if you give them 48 months. Give them 48 months of unchecked power. Democrat in The White House Democrat controlled House and Senate. The nation wouldn't survive. You understand?

"acting director" Discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated

"I don't know how that played out. But welcome and good morning. To everyone from the Hugh Hewitt show. I am pleased to be here and they really factored out come studios. I have one wish, and that is not that I don't have my Saturday program on the battleground talkers who are here in Cleveland with you, and with Brandon Tatum and with Eric metaxas with U.S. civil rights commissioner Peter Carson on our stage. I love that. The one wish I really have that is never going to come true is that I could be in Pittsburgh with you last night. I wanted to hear you at talking to the Steelers fans face to face that he insults every time he mentions anything having to do with steelers fans. I wish I could have seen that reception. I know I've got family in western Pennsylvania. My mother and father were born in western Pennsylvania. Steelers fans, all throughout my family. But I know they also are conservative minded people too. And I know they will set aside the fun of steelers, browns, rivalry stuff for supporting the conservative ideals and principles and the things that are so important to us as we approach the midterm elections. There you go. There's the introduction, there's the little fun with you. I always like to say this. Hugh Hewitt and I are always in the same boat and we are always rowing in the same direction, even if every stroke is not always in unison. For example, Indians slash guardians. For example, his friendship with and his support for in a personal way, congressman Tim Ryan, who, of course, is running against JD Vance in the Senate. He does he won't savage Tim Ryan, I will. Probably not on this show just out of respect, but I will, because I've watched both of the debates. Here in the state of Ohio between JD Vance and Tim Ryan and Tim Ryan just did some despicable, horrific things. Essentially calling a man who's married to an Indian American from India not Native American, but from Indian Indian American woman with three biracial children to call him a racist because he believes in a secure border was just so beyond the pale in the last debate, which happened on Monday. Essentially, linked him to the shootings in Buffalo, the horrific grocery store shootings racially motivated in Buffalo, New York from a couple of months back. He basically blamed JD Vance for that. Because JD Vance wants to secure border and if you want to secure Porter, you are a believer in the great replacement theory and you are a fear monger because of the great replacement theory, and that's what that shooter in Buffalo cited before he went and started shooting up a black area grocery store, so therefore it's JD Vance's fault. I mean, that kind of stuff just doesn't fly with me. I'm a huge supporter of JD Vance. And in fact, I'm going to talk to him on my local program today and I'm going to get his thoughts on that. Hugh and I will take Tim Ryan apart. I don't expect you to come from the same neighborhood that come from the same place and I get it. But I promise you, you and I and everybody that's been on, Ed Morrissey and Morgan ortagus and Kurt schlichter and we are all doing everything we can to get as many Republicans as elected as humanly possible. On November 8th. Gubernatorial races, Senate races, congressional seats. I mean, it is just so important. I'm going to say I give a speech last night to a conservative group here in Cleveland. And I said to them, this isn't just about gains or losses. When it comes to this particular election cycle, this is survival, okay? This is literal American survival. There has been a movement afoot. Not breaking any new ground here. I'm not telling you things you don't already know. But the movement has been to destroy the United States as it exists, and to replace it with something that is nefarious..

"Dave's killer bread, bread, amplified. Morning glory, America, bonjour, high candidate who here, I'm not there today, flying between Pittsburgh and Columbus is a battleground tour continues with my fellow talkers from the Salem network. I'm headed to Cleveland eventually on Saturday night. Speaking of Cleveland bob France is my guest host this morning, the voice of reason in sweet Cleveland on the Lake. I hope we're still celebrating when bob talks to you. I don't know what I'm taping this, but thank you, bob. Take it away. Oh my goodness, gracious. I wish we were celebrating two Hugh Hewitt, but no. The Indian season and yes, you and I, I love Hugh Hewitt. I hit him on the show, promoting the battleground thing on my local show in Cleveland earlier this week. And I was telling all of my audience about my deep respect for his knowledge, his I call him the professor. First of all, he is a con law professor, but honestly, every time he's on the air, I feel like we're getting a lesson. We're getting taught things we didn't know. He knows so much more than almost anybody I know. I will say this. He and I don't agree on everything. He is willing to go to the cancel culture name of guardians and roll with it. Probably because he's more mature than I am. And I'm not. And I'm going to acknowledge. I don't like it, and I won't go along with it. They're the Indians. They will always be the Indians. They will be the chief wahoo warriors until the day that I die. Having said that, yeah, the season is over. And the Yankees, of course, played last. I don't even know who won because I just don't follow it unless the Indians are a part of it. But the Yankees and Astros are now, of course, in the American League championship series..

"Mentioned. You mentioned another great american. You mentioned tom home and former acting director of is Let's play a little cut from him in the get you to comment on on what he has said. Play cuts when you when you make it easier. People come into the country get released quicker. That's just going to bring more so they need to talk to the experts on the board look bringing back bringing back out. Secure the border three days three days. Because i'll be reinstituted trump policies. And i'll tell the progressive to shut up if they don't like what's being done the and legislate like you're supposed to legislate fix the laws. Is that the tom rating is is it easy to make a big dent in a couple of days. Actually i disagree with him. I don't think he needs three days right. Ria that's probably drive time and lunch so added to that. Look we do nothing. Thomas said that that i stole from him with affection is the bottom of station. Had the most secure border in modern history and they asked. Wh- what can we do. Well first of all just restore everything that biden dismantle restore the remain in mexico program. So you don't need miss the. You don't need working committees anything that they've done in the last six months. Just flip the switch back we studied. We we've studied. The trump administration made more progress to secure our borders and to address illegal immigration than any presidency in modern history by february twenty. Twenty we had reduced the flow from the two thousand nine hundred crisis by seventy five percent. Why because our policies and messaging sinked up and said the same thing that you are not going to be allowed to break our laws illegally and be released in the united states. Never be heard from again and it was effective and this administration. Got rid of all

"acting director" Discussed on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM

"With former acting director of the CIA. Michael Morale. Welcome back to intelligence matters and Michael moral. We're talking with John Culver. Expert on the Chinese military and the former national intelligence officer for East Asia. By the way, if you missed any of today's show, you can listen to it as a podcast. Just search intelligence matters wherever you get your podcast. So John one more question about the Chinese military itself. What in this evolution that you watched what came easily to them in terms of advancing their capabilities, And what did they struggle with? What are they still struggling with? Yeah, I would kind of, you know, roughly divide sort of their task through to kind of burdens they had to overcome, and one was sort of structural. And had to do with manpower and kind of professional military arts because the last time they fought a serious conflict was making 79 So that they fought that with kind of Korean in Vietnam or era weapons, And then they'd watch the United States demonstrate what late 20th century and then 21st century combat looks like. And they do, but they weren't even our same league And then you turn to the technology side. And they had never, you know, at the time I joined the agency and really, until after 2000. Had never design developed innovated and built a new weapon from scratch. They were working off old Soviet examples, and then in the after the collapse of the Soviet Union, buying Russian hardware. In order to fill some of the most glaring kind of hard work out. So they bought fighters Submarine serviced air missiles, some anti ship weapons, um and what they've really done in the last, you know, really, 30 years again. This isn't new and it and it isn't a surprise, but we saw some key benchmarks like in the early two thousands. They for the first time fluid, indigenously developed fighter aircraft. That was truly 1/4 generation aircraft comparable to an F 16. Now, even there, they had help. The design was largely derived from the Israeli lovey fighter. But still, it was notable in that what they had done is built not just an airplane, but built a R and D innovation and design capability inside their defense industrial base. And then we saw that you know, replicated across the defense industrial base, especially in shipbuilding and, of course, ballistic and cruise missiles, and then all of the panoply of kind of dread of technology. So What they can deploy today, especially in terms of area denial. Anti access weapons is truly unique, like nobody has done more with precision guided Eventually armed ballistic missiles to the Chinese. Can you explain why this anti access area denial weapons are so important to them? I'll do it and kind of prosaic terms. It might work better on radio anyway. Um What they found out in the mid nineties when there were tensions on the Taiwan Strait. Was that the US deploying carrier strike groups just as we had in the 19 fifties. To protect Taiwan during the Korean War constituted kind of an American wind button. You know, all we had to do is show up, especially with carrier strikes, and then with our regional forces deployed, uh, faces in Japan or in the Philippines or other treaty allies. And trying to really had no means to target or to reach any of those forces. And so it is. You might imagine. I mean, just putting putting your chute put yourself in their shoes for a moment. How maddening that must have been for the senior political leadership that all we had to do as late as 1996 would show up. So what they did is they kind of then meticulously broke down what I would call the five pillars of American power projection. In Asia and on my list. I'd include Ford bases, um U S airpower aircraft carriers, which is kind of a different thing from air power itself, Information and space dominance and then under see dominance. And then since 2000 and eight they have really attacked each of those pillars. And leaving the only area where I would say we really had military dominance over them is undersea warfare. But don't sleep on that because they're spending serious money to be able to Track and and detect and then attack US submarines. So they basically took our way of war and try to turn it against us, and I think it's you know. Kind of an open, You know knowledge now that they have largely succeeded that the U. S decision to intervene in a military conflict with China would be one that would be fraught for a U. S president to decide in a way it wasn't in the mid nineties. This is intelligence matters. We're talking with John Culver, a 35 year CIA analyst whose work focused on China and the Chinese military. So, John, I've heard you talk about a number of myths with regard to the Chinese military. Can you talk a little bit about what those are? Yeah, this will sound like you know, an expert complaining that the perfection of his knowledge is no longer respected. But I'm also retired, so I'll, uh you can just Can you break it off to that as well? I'm not sure this is the right expression. But I think that China has moved beyond the domain of experts like you and me and become kind of fodder for pundits. And so there's a natural tendency to draw from historical experience and kind of imprint onto the U. S. China competition the characteristics of the Cold War, including in the military domain. Few of these assumptions fit very well. And I frankly wish it was that the current situation we confront with China was as simple as the Cold War. You know, As you know, it's not this nice, clean, bipolar world. China's completely integrated into global economics completely integrated into the international system to the U. N and other agencies. And so the ability to kind of divide into sides and then compete in a nice clean Cold War style isn't available to us. So in the same way that the PLA has become the pacing threat for the department of Defense and service budgets. You know they're all being oriented to meet that challenge, And you know today, depending on your media preferences, you may have heard that China intends to build bases around the world or project power globally, including into the Atlantic Ocean that they want to control the moon. I mean, the the reality of current and emerging peace capabilities is impressive enough without these kind of exaggerations. China is the largest trading power of the world and its interests and citizens stand the globe. It has one base overseas in Djibouti. And you know that is really by no means comparable to the 800 U. S military facilities that exist outside the United States and also add that China has no allies or security or true security partners. It may have strategic relationships with Russia or Pakistan or formally North Korea. But it just doesn't carry the same weight that the kind of real commitments that we make to our allies that they make to us. So what? I was kind of seen as a breathlessness about peeling modernization that again sometimes strikes me as humorist. You know, I Uh, I think we don't have to exaggerate. Their capabilities are real, You know, they have a real capability to shape and then contest areas that where we used to be able to operate freely. Without fear about Chinese and military intervention. We still have more to discuss with John and we'll be right back with our final segment. This is intelligence matters. I'm Michael morale..

"Mike Orlando, the acting director of the National Counter Intelligence and Security Center in the office of the director of National Intelligence. So Mike China's obviously a threat. But I guess the question is. How do we talk about it? Smartly, Right. How do we warn about the threat without Americans seeing a Chinese spy behind every rock, Obviously anti Asian violence. Is a real thing. Um, political rhetoric about China is no doubt, you know, playing a role in that. So how do we get this balance right of talking about the threat without You know, without creating incentives for people to kind of take action in their own hands. So first, our issue is not what Chinese Americans or Chinese nationals or she was what the Communist government of China And in regards to hate crime. That is something that is very important to the U. S government to make sure that all people are treated fairly and we certainly were concerned about it. But I think the real narrative is The Chinese government is the Chinese government that are setting the conditions for people to steal information. They're encouraging them to do it, providing them benefit and when you look at their national security laws is forcing them to do that. And I think that is the real conversation. And what you know what I would say Two Chinese nationals or Chinese Americans that we're here to help you. And if you find yourselves in a situation where you feel the Chinese government is trying to compromise you before you take actually. Please come to us so we can help you. We certainly need Chinese nationals and Chinese Americans to help us solve this problem like we're almost out of time here. This might be the toughest question which is, you know if you were looking out 5 to 10 years is just problem going to be worse. Just problem gonna be better. What do you think? If we don't take action, it is going to be worse. And I think the next five years for very critical for us to engage in the whole of society. To figure out how are we going to counter the efforts of time if we want to be the national leaders? Mike. Thank you so much for joining us.

CDC recommends double masks to protect against COVID-19

"New cdc report showing that tightly fitted masks. Make a difference and that a tightly fitted with a cloth mask over it. Double masking as it's called is also effective. A new study from the cdc suggested that double masking putting a second mask on you. That fits really tightly actually can protect you from covid better than a single mask. Let's get some info on this. We got someone who ran the cdc at one point. Dr richard besser was the former acting director there. He now leads. The robert wood johnson foundation. Dr beshir can we start with the practical stuff. What is the current recommendation at this point when it comes to wearing masks like how many do we need. What type do we need right. Well brad at the highest level. The recommendation is that everybody should be wearing masks. Glad that we have a reasonable thinking governor who has lifted the mandate. I don't wear a mask unless i am made to. I see so many people. Today who aren't wearing any mask and even wearing a single mask will reduce the likelihood that if you have cohen you'll spread to someone else and will reduce the chances that if someone near you has cova that you will breathing in and get infected date ever used from cdc today underscore the importance the importance of wearing a mask correctly and the cdc's said in their study and this and this was published in the wr which is their journal of record is is that wearing cloth mask on top of a surgical mask or or the procedure massive. They're the same thing will improve the fit. And that's what this is about when when you put a mask on. There are gaps around the side of that masks. There may be gaps around around your nose but if you wear a surgical mask that has a wire at the top and you pinch it on your nose and you put a cloth mask on top of that. It will ensure that there aren't the the leakages sides of that surgical. The surgical does a lot of the work. And then the cloth is there to prosecute against your mouth exactly because if you just put on a surgical mask with with doing anything else. What you're going to find is that it doesn't fit tightly on the sides there big gaps there but that cloth mask fits properly over over. Your ears will will hold that surgical mask in in place and in their studies found that this reduced the amount of particles by by over ninety percent well fitting mast provided the greatest performance Blocking emitted aerosols and exposure of aerosols to the receiver. They cautioned though that. Don't take those numbers and say and assume they're going to try to you because they tested one type of cloth mask and one type of surgical mask but the general principle is a good one. That wearing a cloth mask over surgical mask will help. They give some other alternatives as well. This includes wearing a mask with the most mold. Fire nodding the ear loops on your mass. You cannot decides of a surgical mask and if you go to their website they'll show you what they mean by that so that it will fit better on the sides of your face or you can you can purchase. What's called a mask fitter which is like a plastic or nylon device. That goes over your mask that that helps it fit on. your face. looks the neck gaiter. That were always saying. They're not great mask but this looks like a neck gaiter. It's good for that yes some of our navigators and some are like a plastic frame that holds it on your face but the takeaway from it is is really this that wearing a mask as good but making sure it fits properly is is really important and will increase the benefits that you get well so okay so i understand that scientific conclusions change with more data right. I get that but just so we're clear like can we walk this back early on. Cdc was saying hey. We have no reason to recommend mask. We haven't seen any in july of last year. Data does come in. They they change it to what we do recommend mask. It's really there to protect other. People won't necessarily protect you. Then november comes around like actually does protect you. We started to see that data and now a full year after covid reaches american shores. Say oh actually. I just want us to masks are actually really good. Like is that counterproductive at one point when when we feel like the guidance shifts month after month well you know one of the advantages. We have now that we didn't have last year is that we're having cd scientists out front explaining what they're learning. How someone who are tired of hearing about masks as well as tired about of wearing masks can be cumbersome they can be inconvenient mass growing is not to make your life mess comfortable and we're seeing our political leaders stand up and say the exact same thing next few months masks not vaccines are the best defense against cove nineteen and hopefully that will allow people to take this in and say you know. I've been hearing a lot about these. These strains of the virus these mutants that can spread more easily. There's actually something i can do until you get vaccinated. Hopefully that will help people you know not feel like no one knows what they're doing but i feel like people providing answers as this is changing and that is a good thing. We can adapt ever ever so slightly if we need to.

"It's here and now many Americans will be waiting for a while to get a Corona virus vaccine, including some frontline workers, people like grocery store clerks or bus drivers. Many are black or Latino and have been hit disproportionately hard during the pandemic. And now some are pointing out that they should be getting the shots now. Sam Dancy works at a Westwood Village QFC in Seattle. It's a grocery store owned by Kroger. Sam Welcome. Thank you very much. Good to be here. Good to have you and your affront and supervisor who manages workers checking people out at the grocery store. So let me ask you Do you feel safe when you go to work? Honestly, I want to say not 100%. Maybe 50%. Why? Well, because first of all, number one, we have a mandate that says that no one should enter the store without mass. Unfortunately, we have some people that disregard that mandate, and it just seems like there's always too many people in the store. That just doesn't pay attention to the 6 ft roll. Another reason why I think a lot of us probably don't feel safe. Because the Plexi Glass doesn't extend as long as it needs to to protect the lobby associates that are actually checking and we have not got the fascination. I think maybe those of us that want to get the vaccination. If we had it, we might still look, it's safer. I had associated this with going to war because Kobe 19 is like fighting a war. Until they give us all the proper weapons that we need to be able to fight this battle. None of us. We're gonna fill this safe is we have been so Let me ask you, Sam, do you You haven't got the vaccine yet. But do you have any idea when you will No, I don't know. As of yet, I'm hoping really knowing they had an itinerary that said maybe February the third. I was in the classification that might be able to, but unfortunately, they haven't been able to keep up with the demand. So we're still waiting. All right, so make the case. Why should workers like you working in a grocery store? Why should they be given priority for a vaccine? Well, we're on the front line. You know, at one time we were considered heroes. I guess we're now zeros also, too, You know, that would make a lot of us. Give us a better piece of mind all of us. Since we have to go to work Under these conditions. They should make these available to all the grocery store workers. It safely is getting all these assassinations next week. Gateway is also part of our local 21 union. They need to make sure that all the associates that work it's safe way and maybe kill, see the pharmacies and make sure that the associates get their shot. That we're taking care of. Will you say we were heroes, But now we're zeros. I think that's I'm sorry that you feel that way. And I understand you're actually talking to us right now. On your lunch break. You're taking time to do that. As you're working, So thank you very much. You know about someone and I had to go into the back from. Unfortunately, because the break room I can't sit here and expect the associate because that's their breakthrough as well. So hopefully I'll be boop be able of Entertain this interview without any more disruptions will in the battle that's going above and beyond, Sam. Thank you. So I just want to finally ask you must be where you tell me. Is it emotionally exhausting to deal with that uncertainty? Because we've been in this pandemic now for almost a year, and you're going to work every single day unvaccinated now. Not knowing whether or not today is the day that you're going to get Cove it exactly And you know, not only is that detrimentally physically, but it's also that you're mentally mentally. I've been working here since 91. I started working when the pandemic started. There was a brief time May 20th I remember It was funny because I couldn't breathe. And the first thing that I thought, Is that all? No, I got Kobe. But it turned out that I had back to the pneumonia. I came back to work after three weeks. So I'm happy about that. But that gave me a wake up calls. So when people sneeze or people have a contest, the first thing from a mental standpoint that we think do we have covitz? That's why is mentally unsettling. I'm sure Sam Dancy works at a Westwood Village QFC in Seattle grocery store owned by the Kroger Change, Sam. Good luck to you Stay safe and let us know if and when you end up getting a vaccine, okay? I sure will. Okay. Thank you very much for taking the time to give me the opportunity to have this platform to speak out for those. They don't have the opportunity to speak for themselves and let's get some more context. Now, Richard Besser Is former acting director of the CDC and president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is an NPR funder. Doctor. Welcome. Thanks for having me Peter. And when you hear that story of Ah, frontline worker like Sam Dancy, who doesn't have a shot yet? And yet it's still going to work every day and is worried about it. What do you think? I hear him, You know, I think that it's critically important that we recognize that while every community is being hit hard by this pandemic, the burden of this disease is not being felt equally. And those people who Need to leave their homes every day to earn money to pay the rent to make sure that everyone else has food on their table. We need to do all we can to protect them. And when you look at the recommendations that the advisory committee on immunization practices gave the CDC And you look at the recommendations that came out of the National Academy of Medicine that what they said was after you probably bride vaccination for health care workers and those people in long term care facilities. That next group after that should be those over 75 because of their great risk and essential workers. That means people working in supermarkets and teachers and people driving Busses. And one of the other reasons that they made. That recommendation is that this pandemic is having a disparate impact. On black Americans, Latino Americans, neighbor Americans and a disproportionate number of people of color are in jobs that put them at risk every single day. Frontline workers So maybe this will be a slightly controversial question. But is there an argument that could be made that those frontline workers that you're talking about should actually have always been at the very front of the line or at least higher in the line? Because they are the ones Who are going to work every day, and even elderly patients who would be high risk for this disease at least could stay home. Or many of them could say home. I mean these air people out literally on the front lines. Yeah. No, I You know, the second group that was recommended was over 75. What we're seeing in many states across the country is that there was such a push to How many people are you vaccinating every day? Once that becomes the driving factor, Then you leave behind those people who are harder to reach. And those are the people who are working all day. Those are the people who can't go to a clinic 9 to 5. May not be able to spend several hours a day looking for a place to get vaccinated may not have access to broadband, and it takes a little bit more work to get the vaccine to people who are truly in need. You know, the inclusion of people over 75 isn't what's making it so inaccessible to people who are on the front lines. It's a failure to put in the resource is to build the systems to meet people where they are, and that is a reflection of decades of under investment in our public health system. On its reflection on who in America we value and who we do not So you know it's going to ask you why you think it has taken so long to get to these workers. Is that the answer? Yeah, You know, if you think about some of the challenges vaccinating health care workers is one of the easiest groups because it's a you can use healthcare facilities. You have people there who are trained to administer vaccines getting in after community clinics. It's harder. Nursing homes there again, you have a captive audience and you you can at the state level recognized where those nursing homes are and figure out how to get vaccines to them. But then it gets harder. And you think about well, how do I? How do I reach people who work in supermarkets? How do I work? Reach people who are driving Busses. And you have to think. Okay, We need different systems. We need mobile clinics. We need phone banks. What would it look like? If in America we had a grassroots effort to get people Vaccinated to reach people to address their concerns for people who have concerns and and we reached people where they were with vaccines..

I mean, there've been a lot of non answers. That have come out over the last few days, and I think Look, I get it. He's trying, Tonto, you know, float a little bit without trying T O isolate people, But I think at some point he is the leader of the party now. You're gonna have to have him come out and say what he thinks on certain things. I think that's a criticism early on for me, and I think there's been some good stuff in the executive orders to I'm trying to be a spirit. I can't but I think from where I sit It's he's gonna have to chime in at some point on where he stands, and I think there's going to have to be some details about it Well, then that comes with the organization if they removed in They're obviously a lot of him yet. I wouldn't be too worried about that. I was interested in what you said about he's the head of the party. So there's a new Democratic National Committee chairman named Jamie Harrison. Who's Jamie Harris? Anybody just ran against Lindsay Graham and that very high profile race. He obviously didn't win, but he I think he has a good future. But I'm just happy that they've got different leadership as a member of the party. I've been so Just disgusted with the leadership of the DNC. And so I'm happy that the old guys out not very transparent, that's for sure. Old guy, head of head of the DNC was still He's still there. He's he's still there. Jamie Harrison, I think is supposed to be fun raising. He's gonna be handling all of that. So I don't read it that they removed him that he is no longer he's replacing Tom Perez. Uh, I'll be good. I mean, it would be good. Still E mean, he's still listed as the chair of the Democratic National Committee to the DNC is still run. I think By Tom. Let's see may not have taken effect. Harrison, actually, yeah, he's gonna go in and take over. I think Look, the party needs more better messaging. Certainly, but I think Push towards Jaime Harrison, who has a Super Progressive is going to probably isolate some of the people who said that Joe Biden was their choice because they wanted someone more moderate. Right. So the director of the ended him, though, which is kind of interesting, so they seem to you know, I don't know. I think it's a good move. Tom Perez got to go out with the old How about the out with the old the FBI? Christopher Wray, who's been at the FBI supposedly is going to stay? Is that a surprise or I don't even heard of Crystal radio know that he Have have to Comey. There hasn't been a lot of visibility. He's been pretty visible, actually, yes, for right. Didn't he replace somebody else? In between Comey and him? Right. There was someone else. There was an acting director. But he's been the next director after after Comey and I think it tells you all you need to know that the one holdover from the Trump administration was the director of the FBI. Why? What does that mean? Because there have been a lot of doubts about Well, it's not even about the clash with Trump. There's been a lot of doubts about Christopher Wray protecting a lot of stuff that was going on inside the FBI that wasn't on the up and up and a lot of people feel like he was. Not really into the full transparency, sort of power washer into the into the FBI. And the scene is, you know, kicking them out that there is this the swamp is there. For sure. McConnell you were talking about the try A looks like McConnell is interested. Not. I'm looking at this, as I read between the lines that they don't really want to do it. Is that fair? Well, I don't think that's it. There's no choice, but I think Mitch McConnell said yesterday that he wants to delay the Senate trial of impeachment until Trump has his legal team in order, which I think is fair. So I don't think anyone it seems like he and Chuck Schumer are in agreement on this, So we'll see when it begins. But obviously everyone has a right to have. Ah, you know, Council in order. Especially during like this. During the House trial. The House trial was a snap impeachment with no due process now for the center, So you have to have a legal team. Of course, they're being forced into it, so they'll give him a chance to lay out the timeline, but they could throw this out. They don't have to pick up the article of impeachment. They don't have to do a trial because The Constitution. I mean, it's not even constitutional to do a trial. The Constitution specifically says that the function of the Senate trial is to remove someone from office and so by doing this The president is going to be set that you could now go after past presidents and impeach them at will. And I just think it's a really forget Trump for a second out of office. Bad presidents. You're gonna have the ability in the argument to say, Well, I could go after Obama. I can go after Bush so I could go after Clinton. I mean, it's it's stupid. They're not an office anymore. So then what's going on with the defense secretary nominee? This the guy who was in the military today, right? Yeah. Get past today. Okay, So what does that is? He Lloyd Austin is his name on What's the story in terms of he was he was in the military or still is in the military, and the law requires that if you're going to be the director At the Defense Department gonna be out of the service for seven years. So how will they find it? That's kind of a big old. They did dramatic, They think even but they didn't do it. But here's the problem. They raped him for doing it for Mattis, and now it's like, Oh, well, no big deal. It's fine, so it's just it's again. It's another double standard. And I mean I don't get it was set, though. On this guy. I think he's qualified, and Mattis was too so. I mean, the guy from Alabama who's a Republican, said he was frustrated by the process. But he said he had to vote for it. Because out of fairness, they did it for Mattis, too, so I think a lot of people are being reasonable about and saying Look If we're gonna do a lot to do with this for a while Noble your four years ago is if they had been reasonable four years ago, Pride would have even been a conversation. But now it's you know, it's politics. That's what it is Politics. So the the various treaties and things that were left by the roadside in the last four years, including the trees we have with, you know, the the There is trade treaties, treaties with the Chinese, the Russians various other things back in the Paris agreement that I think that was a surprise. But what's the thing about Assessing Russia's behavior. What is that? What do we tell? We're talking about everything. Put Putin under a microphone or you're gonna put the intelligence community. We're gonna go after Snowden. What one of the All of it. Yeah, that's all. That's what Biden he's He wants the intelligence agencies to investigate the solar wind. Cyber attack. If you don't remember that name if that's not familiar, That's the huge attack at the end of last year that hit over 250 government agencies and private businesses. Microsoft got hit. I mean, lots of big companies were involved in that, and we know that that was Russia. So that's one thing that he's looking into interference in the election. The poisoning of that no valley guy who's you know the Russian opposition to Putin on Ben, The serious one is the most well, they're all serious, but The other one That didn't really get any attention. I don't know why, but those that Russia paid the Taliban to kill American soldiers that's going to be investigated..

Roughly 150 employees were docked pay and locked out of Chicago public school systems earlier this week, meaning they can't teach remotely either has classes begin this week for thousands of Pre K and special education students. District officials said late Wednesday that the number had dropped to 100 as staff members either returned to work or presented a valid excuse, such as quarantine. Meanwhile, a report released Wednesday by the CDC as to the evidence, suggesting that Children aren't the main drivers of community transmission. But that's not the problem. Critics say States put a priority on keeping restaurants, bars and Jim's Open over education. Former acting director of the CDC, Dr Richard Besser says. While there's good news on the vaccine front, Americans are still exhibiting bad behavior, and the government is not providing enough support. When, when the pandemic first hit last year, we talked about how bad it could get this winter and there many reasons for that viruses like the winner. They survive longer. They stay in the air longer, but we're also facing incredible pandemic fatigue. And the news is so focused on vaccination and vaccination is critically important. It is gonna lead to the end of this pandemic. But it's not what's going to make the big difference this winter this winter. What will truly make the difference is if we can come together as a nation and ensure that we're practicing those things that will reduce transmission, so wearing masks keeping apart Washing her hands. Hopefully, when Congress comes back at the end of the month, they're gonna put in place those measures that need to be there so that people can protect themselves. You know, this last round of money that came to people is was really one month, one month of support. We need to make sure that their dollars coming in to support people that addiction protection is extended that rents support. Expands way beyond what was done so far that they continue to expand unemployment coverage and benefits. Those of the things that will allow people if they're exposed to stay home and stay away from other people will allow people who are infected to stay home and still be able to put food on the table and pay the rent. But if we don't do those things, you know it will be a long time before this thing turns around, and we will truly need to wait for vaccination. If we do these measures, vaccination and these measures together, we will see a much more rapid decline in this pandemic.

"Talking about tomorrow is the big day. Just have a tough time accepting that this is a president that has been able been one or two steps ahead of the Democrats every step of the way from the collusion attempt. From they. They threw $40 million at him in an investigation with Robert Mueller hey, survived that they tried to impeach him on this call to Ukraine. He survived that. And he knew and he warned about these mail in ballots. He knew it was coming. Nobody wanted to listen to him in the Republican Party, Unfortunately, hey, knew what was coming and he signed that executive order. Where he's supposed to get a report from the Deanna, in fact, that Richard Grenell, the former acting director of national Teligent, who was serving helping other president and I think in Nevada, He said. The president is a good position for the electoral vote showdown, he said. Quote every single time we tried to bring this forward to the courts. They've just been largely dismissive. So I think the rule of law the processes that on Wednesday We get to showcase this to the politicians and see where the chips fall and of quote, and the big question is how much if anything, will be largely declassified. Bruce will the president goes scorched Earth on the deep state tomorrow. Health. I think you should. I think it's past time, but whether it will run. I don't know. I truly think that that on the way, if if indeed he is on the way out that I think that he should just declassify Everything. Everything that has to do with swole everything it has to do with the phony dossier. Everything that has to do with all the slime you said to put up during the 3.5 4 years he's been in office. By the way we said earlier to follow the data science those same data, scientists In Arizona and in Georgia now have done Pennsylvania list of this 432,000 votes were removed from President Trump and at least 15 counties. In Pennsylvania. And they were largely counties. Guess where. Outside Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Sure that 432,000 votes just removed completely moved from from the president. That certainly I think Violent, allegedly wins Pennsylvania by 80,000 votes That would certainly largely affect the outcome. And this is new breaking news that the state of Wisconsin Has reportedly announced it will introduce a resolution this Thursday. To Dede certify the state's electoral college votes and award them to President Trump. So what's happening here is we're starting to see the state legislatures, Georgia Arizona. Wisconsin. Maybe Pennsylvania. Maybe Michigan will see they're now starting to realize what they certified was fraudulent. Which one the way is against the law. Uh, Thursday. That's the day to day Late. Dollar short, isn't it? I mean, if we're gonna actually see things play out tomorrow before they take the vote than wouldn't Thursday be a little late for Wisconsin and take that action. No, it Z not too late until January, 20th So again, this is Look, you're you're right. This is new territory. We're breaking new ground each and every day here in this election, But again, it's really, uh especially if Pence decides to delay. If he delays and he might do this tomorrow. He might open this up and go. Wait a minute. I've got dual electors from these seven states. What am I supposed to do with this? I can't determine. I'm not going to be the Person that determines who wins or who loses. This is good. I'm telling you, I think is best bet is to kick it back to the state legislatures. And when he delays that for Let's say 10 days that putz around January 16 On then the state legislatures can then look and they can either help hold special sessions and they can say will know we're going to keep what we have, or we're going to de certify the Biden electors s so we don't know which way that's going to go. But when you have Wisconsin Any of Georgia and you have Arizona right now, all looking to head in that direction, things going to get very, very. That's why the president said, And that one sound bite over the next couple of weeks. Yeah, well You've always been much more optimistic than I on this. Uh, I think the fix is in and it's very unlikely that it's going to play out the president's favor. I hope you're right. And I hope I'm wrong on this one. No, I think you're right. The fix is in on so but the question is, can the undo the fix? Can they catch the culprits of this massive, widespread criminal conspiracy to steal an election from the American people? That is a question coming up next Governor Hogan. Is basically insulting. Those of us who are not satisfied with the way this election was conducted will share that with you in just a second right now. Want to talk about a good buddy Vinny Steel in the uncertainty of today's headlines. If they're going to drag down the whole market.

"Jordan secular record. Now our special advisor to the A. C L. J is joining us for the full hour of the broadcast today, talking about the potential threats and ongoing threats to the U. S. In 2021, who better to talk to about about it. Then a former acting director of national intelligence, former ambassador Jeremy Somebody spent almost a decade at the United Nations dealing with these countries dealing with the Intel. Dealing with classified information, probably the overwhelming amount of countries that would like to harm the U. S and the ones that actually had the potential to do it. And so we talked about a couple of the big players. Shall we talked about China? They have the potential to do it. Russia they have. They show that they do it more hash in a minute. Yeah, but they've shown through just recently. A few days ago. The hacking they could Diogo you and major businesses on her Intel committee. But then there's the countries that want to doom or today to harm us, too. That's like the Iran's. They may not be a sophisticated yet as a China or Russia, Phyllis, but but there's there's in some ways more dangerous because of the extremism. That fuels their government instead of whether it's money that fuels the Chinese to destabilize the entire region, where the Chinese will be cautious about destabilizing the region because there's such a big part of the region. The Iranians. On the other hand, we know we have an office in Jerusalem, of course, but we have done work on the Iran issue. The Iranian issue and Iran under president proposed to Iran under The Trump administration was isolate. Build coalitions around them that support Israel and Israel. Supporting them. You a Morocco, Bahrain, Sudan, I mean more coming. Changed the whole dynamic now. Well, I always start with the fundamental abuse of a society. Here's the fundamental abuse of the Iranian society. Persians are great people really great people. Great history. I mean, tremendous history. Um, just Really great people. We've no, we know a lot of them. But let me tell you what you don't have in Iran Diversity of any kind. Let's start with religious diversity. Your pastor and Iran. Good chance you'll spend 6 to 12 years in prison once or twice in your ministry. If you're an American pastor, by the way, and you happen to be in Iran or a dual citizen of Iran, Guess what you get. You could get life imprisonment. It Evan Prison we had. That's not that's not present. That's real. Uh, gays and lesbians. They throw him off of buildings. Christian pastors. They have shot them. Now that's Iran. Now this president has isolated Iran and crippled them economically as I look forward, looking for one of the things that grieves me most about the election, Rick was the reshaping of the Middle East that I know you were part of that was That we help on the outside on that was really coming together. And now it's the old guard back in the Obama 2.0 and you know, with Iran what they're gonna be doing. Look, Let's not forget coast of on Serbia with their new historic agreements with Israel as well. Look, I'm very concerned about the engagement with Iran. Let's be very clear now what there is this idea that Joe Biden has pushed its called consensus. Now it sounds like a really nice word. But consensus just means that the Europeans or The U. N Security Council, 14 other countries get to water down U. S policy and decide what we do. So instead of having a potent U. S policy, that's America first. You have to go to all these other countries and say, Well, what do you guys think that we should do, And it's the lowest common denominator of policy, and that's what they call consensus and they've tried to build up this idea of consensus. Now look as a diplomat. I love consensus. If it's going to be something that the United States is going to improve our security upon We need to be able to be very firm about forming alliances around our policy, not letting others water down our policy and that's where we're going with Iran is that the Europeans want engagement. They want to be able to say if we just engage a little more with Iran, and maybe do some trading that the regime and the Mullah's will just suddenly see the light of day and they will start moving towards the rule of law, capitalism and greater forms of democracy. Now, let's look at what we've tried with China 20 years ago, we did that We thought, Let's engage with China. Let's put them Into the W T o the World Trade Organization. Let's see if engagement would actually work. I'm all for engagement. President Trump has tried engagement with the North Koreans. But at some point you have to be smart about your engagement to have a benchmark and to say did our engagement work. I think that we need to face the music and we should have faced the music about 15 years ago. That trying to get greater cooperation with China by getting them into the deputy of didn't work. We have seen human rights abuses Get work get worse. Look at Hong Kong. Look at our companies that have their technologies. Stolen. W T O is not only failed to stop the theft of Chinese in a U. S intelligence and us Technology, but it's also allowed the Chinese to be able to pretend like they're part of the international community working in cooperation when they have absolutely come at us in every possible way. This is where we're going with Iran. This is what the Biden team wants their start talking about consensus and engagement on Iran, and we need to stand firm against it. Of course, China and Iran already have. There's there's already a nexus there already connecting now, Rick, We've got three minutes left in this segment. I Like giving people hope because the one thing I don't want is people. We're just going to say all this is horrible. This is terrible. We have to take concrete action, which is now if the Senate stays conservative, Okay? Stays Republican. You're gonna have a better chance of some of these, but foreign policy issues, as you know, because you've dealt with him. President has a lot of authority. How do we How do we tell our folks that are millions listening to us Right now? Hundreds of thousands watching us. How do we engage when an administration is taking contrary positions? Look, I believe that transparency is important, So we're gonna have to push and push the administration and maybe that means going to court and taking people all the way to the end to say you must show us or stop doing something that you're doing so we need legal challenges. I think that it's incredibly important for organizations like a C. L. J. To be funded. This match is unbelievable. I can't believe that we're getting the ability of someone to say We'll match anything that you can do in December, So I would just say to people take action. Prayer is fantastic. Talking about it on social media is amazing. But you got to take action and be a part of a C. L. J. Because we are taking action. I would not be a part of this organization if it wasn't about action. And I love the fact that where you have smart people sitting around a table to figure out what are we going to do to push transparency, toe fight in court legally? This is why we have a constitutional rule of law that allows people like you and I and the trump campaign or anyone to petition the the courts and to bring your case to an independent judiciary. When you feel wrong. You've got to have representative Representatives. If you don't have representatives of people fighting for you than your voice is lost, and that's what we want to do is be able to be transparent and fight in court. Where needed. That is the key with the A C L J,.
