"Boomerang tell the pill back day selects. My list bringing my step. Got all the way to the and then the hammer mercilessly. Yes moving on jihad joe. Taliban hero says at the rate he's going bill. Maher will speak at cpac before steve does. I'd book him at cpac perform. He's better at this than me. I mean the guy's a multimillionaire. Comedian movie star the with a tv. Show that ten million people watch on. Hbo of all places is important for the exact same reason. Alex berenson is yes. He's not one of us. Yes but he fundamentally get something here. Here's what's going on. Let's quantify why that's important okay If we were if we were leading an evangelistic mission. Let me rephrase that if we were leading a purely evangelistic mission like the church in acts we would actually not be looking to work with people who don't agree with us. Correct in fact. We'd be worried about being infiltrated by people. That don't agree with us. We'd be getting people very closely. Who agrees with us. I think what. Paul who they made made paul wait for three years to prove himself before he was actually like brought into like the you know a a an official leadership position right. Yep okay so you're constantly and i've read stuff about the early church. How seriously took discipleship. And one of the reasons why was to protect itself externally from external threats. And i mean it wasn't just you came in centers prayer once and you're a member in good standing. It wasn't like that okay like anybody could come but like join different okay. They really people were really vetted not to mention. Can't remember their names and the the story in the church him but the two who withheld part of their and priscilla. That did not go. Well did not go. Well no it did not so there you go now. We're talking about. What is a primarily political endeavor in this case now for those of us that are believers we take that priesthood with us wherever we go into any situation. Okay whether it's the city of or the city of god we take were. We are ambassadors for our for our lord. We take that with us wherever we go. Okay fair yeah but but wall. That responsibility goes with us wherever we go. It is directed in it is directed and applied differently depending on the circumstances. Okay yeah since we are living in in this realm here in a primarily public policy culturally influenced so influential for the for the purposes of political outcome process. There aren't enough of us to to just say we'll we'll hand this on our own we. There aren't enough of us to grab the infinity gauntlet thanos style at the age of altron slap on and say well. Let's do this ourselves. We just can't call the huddled masses out of the silent majority out of the pews. And just say we'll just leave bill maher to do whatever decadent thing he's doing. Hbo we we we. We are in charter. There's not therefore we need another layer of membrane peer another layer of skin another layer of installation on a house and what we need and and because of and by the way that layer doesn't exist. Then what happens is you get into that. Zero-sum game we're all afraid of where there's only two impulses us in them and they're coming after us. Eventually we feel like we've got to defend ourselves from them right here we go. How do we avoid that is there. Is there a middle layer of people who still believe in some form of objective truth even if they have different different ideas of how to respond to it but that some things are objectively true. Do those people does that. Does that level of citizenship still exist in america. Frankly might be the only thing that had that stops us from devolving into eighteen to four sumpter all over again. And that's why when we've come upon people like naomi wolf or bill maher now as i said yesterday bill maher is doing this. Show just book ended by Check the box shots at donald trump in conservatives so he maintains a street cred but then he says in the middle of those things sounds a lot like this program right okay. I think it's important for the alex berenson's and bill maher's nine least people are the same by the way but they're not us either and so it's important to find people who truly want to live in a fact based free society because finding that next layer of people may be what what stops this from devolving into lord of the flies at this point. Yeah next up. We'll go to joel underwood. Who says we are under divine judgment. Which makes twenty twenty two and twenty. Two thousand four irrelevant. We need wholesale national repentance before god or the decay will continue until the country is shell of itself. Well the the second part is definitely true. The first part you can't you know not the day or the hour. You can't be certain. Yeah i think. I i would say which makes them less relevant. I'll yes. I really agree with that. I mean if you get if if republicans under kevin mccarthy ended up with a thirty or forty seat majority next year. I don't know that it changes this show that much. Frankly you know so. I mean i agree because the issues that we're dealing with here now so spiritually foundational that just your typical are versus de tribalism. Talking point my partier were beyond. We're so beyond that now. Okay so i certainly think they are less relevant but right now go tell somebody who lives in florida right now. The twenty twenty two election irrelevant. How about right here in iowa. Go tell somebody lives in. Kim reynolds is iowa. The two thousand twenty two election is irrelevant. Which if you'll remember as the reason why i turned around you have decided to vote for trump in the first place because of the very yes. You're making yes. They're not that that's going too far..

"The right thing to do. How big of a threat is the chinese corona virus. Well every single day in the united states according to data that is publicly available as of two thousand nineteen one thousand eight hundred people die of heart disease. Why don't we lockdown burger king mcdonalds and wendy's and not locked down businesses of people that are trying their best to get by in fact. Why would we lockdown gymnasiums when people are actually literally trying to get healthy by the way this is daily. Let me just reinforce this. This is daily. One thousand eight hundred people die. Every single day of heart disease one thousand six hundred forty of cancer four hundred seventy by accident four hundred thirty of chronic lower respiratory disease. Four hundred ten of stroke their three hundred thirty of alzheimer's and now cova deaths are below three hundred twenty four. In fact yesterday there was seventy one confirmed cova deaths. Seventy one confirmed cova debts. And if you look at category by category last year included zero to seventeen years old three hundred and forty people died involving with one thousand nine hundred and alex berenson says that that is almost immeasurable. Statistically fifty one thousand two hundred thirteen people died from all causes from ages. Eighteen to twenty nine two thousand four hundred ninety three people died from coverted and ninety six thousand six hundred twenty five from all causes from thirty to thirty nine years old. Seven thousand one hundred forty five people died from cove in nineteen allegedly and one hundred thirty seven thousand people eight hundred forty nine from all causes you go category to category. Do you know that cova was not the leading cause of death for any single age group including last year including eighty five years and older including seventy five to eighty four. It was not the leading cause of death for any category or any group.

"About this during the break. Look at the way they message on the on the vaccine anthony. Fauci doesn't come out and say listen. Okay i i understand that. We just had an a contentious election. I understand we're in a political atmosphere. My jobs to rise above all of that and i'm just interested in public health and i don't care if you've who you voted for or how many times you voted or how you voted last year. I'm trying to stop bit from wreaking havoc in our society. That's my job. And i think there's some misconceptions out there about these vaccines. I don't wanna see this get politicized so let me address a few of them. Is that what we're seeing. No he goes. He goes on very partisan outlets. These are red states You know you've politicized this all. The language is authoritarian in nature because culture authoritarian. How dare you not sign up for the group. Think how dare you think for yourself. How dare you ask contrarian questions you're the one that's letting us all down. That's the same kind of language that is being used here and it's going to be used in the future on. Virtually every debate that we want to half yes. It is steve so fake news or not. Throughout human history our species has typically been prone to ignore potentially cataclysmic events in favor of comfort and carrying on with our daily lives however for perhaps the first time a segment of the american population is bound and determined to turn covid nineteen into the apocalyptic event. Hit never was this morning it. That's absolutely true news this morning. I'm guessing no my routine by now when i'm not doing this for a living or getting prepped. If i'm listening to something outside of work for wind down it's usually something church related or sports related right some. I'm at the gym today. And i'm listening to sports podcast. And and the guest on the podcast is one of the biggest college football writers in the country. Dennis dodd from cbs. Sports and dennis dodd is openly admitting on this pot that this this this is the first time. He's been out of his home in fifteen months that he went to an he went to Kind of a college football muggy mu- gathering and in phoenix last back in may and then he's going to. Sec media days here in a couple of weeks and he goes. i'm. I'm frankly. This point. I just i just need to see people and i wanted. I wanted to get like philosophically disdainful at this. You know what i'm saying. But on a human level harshest broke for this guy regardless of what his ideology is or is belief system is and i'm guessing that's opposite of ours. He's still made in the image of god man. Jesus came to set the captives three free. This guy highly educated highly intelligent is captive to his fear. Told us he just. I would guess see somewhere in his fifties i would guess and and maybe there's a story i don't know maybe he's pre diabetic or something. But he didn't you think you'd mentioned something like that right And he didn't and i'm and so. This is a guy whose life has been traveling around the country to cover the main game in college football every week and he's done it most of most of our lives fans like all of aaron's life he's been around okay you would think the natural human inclination when when that's your job that as a man even christian men struggle not to find their ultimate meeting in their jobs right let alone secular ones. That's your identity. That's your worth. That's you're calling and something comes along to take that away from you. Isn't the natural human inclination to be. No i'm not buying that. Because i don't wanna give up. That's my idol. In a way right right. i don't want to give that up. Who might who's dennis dodd. If i'm not as superior nationwide college football writer who am i instead. Steady willingly gave it up instead. He couldn't give it up fast enough instead he was like. Wow what a shinier. More impressive idle. Let me let me clutch this one instead and i do think that's new. I think it's it's certainly. If there's other moments in human history where the populist desired oppression desired it for For of an apocalypse it's not the normal human clay inclination. It certainly isn't in the western tradition. I mean the reason why. The story of superman's origin were his father. Jurrell brings to the elders that the planet krypton is gonna blow up and they don't wanna listen the reason that resonates is because that's how we typically respond right right. I don't want to give my life up. I'm complacent at leisure technology. I like my my wife. I don't want to just hand. All no we reversed the story now. The scientists jurrell ran the test and the plan. it's fine. they may be some minor adjustments here there. And i think we're gonna be okay but the elders the owners of crypt on her like no. This thing's going to blow up now and now that now they want to run giral out of town because he won't tell him that the planet will blow up. That's what that's what we did with this and enlisting dennis dodd talk about this on this podcast this morning just hammered this point that you just made home. We didn't natural particularly male instinct is to is to have to lock that guy in a room so he doesn't just get out and try to violate every covert order to go to every game anyway. Right nope now. He's he's gotta be begged and cajoled to come back out. That ain't the way this works.

"I don't think you had a chance to see this yet. Todd did jason whitlock shows fearless. Yesterday and i was. I came on to discuss the piece. I had written for the blaze over the weekend about fox news. And are they going to stand by tucker carlson. Now that he's going to war against the nsa and everything else and we got into an overall big picture conversation about the state of alternative slash conservative media and at the end. He asked me an interesting question. I thought that i did not see coming. He asked me. If i thought our book had influenced tucker's willingness or capability to go to use his far larger platform to go pretty hard at kobe and dr fauci and he said the reason he asked me that is because as someone who watches tucker's monologue and show almost every single night. That's jason talking. He thinks the answer to that question is yes and my answer was i will first of all. That's very kind and we would love it if someone with a bigger. We didn't write the book so that the information would just stay in and amongst us right. I mean we. We didn't do this show every day and put everything out on social media for the last year and a half just to keep it amongst ourselves. I mean we all are doing broad casting. We're we're trying to stop this from happening. The country and due to be phenomenal people with bigger platforms than us. Want to pick up the batat and say hey man. Let's amplify which you're trying to do in my own way because in our own way. That's what we did. And i mentioned some names on jason show. Yesterday i pointed out. Hey we've got more footnotes in this book than pages which means we used other people's work more than we worked on this our selves. And whether it's an namedrop rational. Ground our buddy jordan shackle guys like alex berenson mean these are all people we have a bigger platform then and yet they're work was instrumental in helping us with our own or formulating much of our own at the exact same time so just as we used our platform that's bigger than theirs to amplify. What the work that they had done. I'd be beyond honored if we if we found out at some point in the future that the guy swinging the biggest stick and all of conservative media right now used some of our own. That's that's what we did in this book. I'm convinced there was a period. There were watch tucker show it. It's been a couple months. But i i did. Try to watch it regularly. Because the tour de force it came to be. And i'm convinced not just not just the book but our entire show. There's somebody working over there just the language that is used. It's of course we're talking about the same things. But i firmly believe That somebody's got on there. I what we're doing and for that. I say amen amen i. I would love it if we found out they did with us. What we did with jordan and alex and All the people at rational ground. Just who's the married couple in florida. Is it the cabrera's is that their last name. Who just did a lot of this independently on their own right and were that were that. Were just invaluable. Those kinds of people were invaluable in helping us to do even better what we were going to try to do anyway. So if we found out later on that some of our work got into the into the upper echelon just as we took somebody some other people's work into hours that's to me that's that's how an ecosystem is supposed to work around. Here is too much work to be done for us to be doing it. All on our own. i mean. that's why my twitter feed. I have my takes. But i try to use it as a mini drudge. Report of what the drugs used to get. You guys need to get a lot of information these days as quickly as possible. And that's what. I try to provide so we have two chapters left to look out. Look at falcon bargain this week. We're looking at which chapter branch davidian cult one of the I think it's it's arguably the most important chapter in the entire book as we move forward as a people because you you watched i think a template form here that is going to be emulated on issues across the board from this time forward and so let's talk about it and listen especially with the montage and what we just heard from Alex and heck we were talking about off. Air weekly steve. I've had a lot of fun doing these chapters asking some silly questions or getting it points in silly ways. No i'm i'm in the mood and i'm deadly serious with this one. We need a. What are you prepared to do. Diagnostic about this word cult. Because we've been talking about it. It's trendy madness That goes on. It's this even though it's dying in some ways it's growing in other ways. The cult keeps coming in new versions and we need. It's not just a word. We use for rhetorical flair. That's right what is it. what are we doing. Quantified it this way on purpose because we believe it would be replicated on issues across the board going forward. So what's the next big fight after lockdowns and masks so we had so the next. Big fight is the vaccination fight. We're good to go door to door. Okay you're a terrible person if you don't we're not going to make an objective case look at the way we were talking about this during the break. Look at the way they message on the on the vaccine anthony. Fauci doesn't come out and say listen. Okay i i understand that..

If if you've not already felt it. I now bring you glad. Tidings of great joy negative reinforcement is one of my special gifts. It's one of my spiritual gifts fact. My kids tell me. I'm very good at negative reinforcement okay. We don't respond to positive reinforcement. We don't so what we need. Is we need them to go as nuts and as far as possible and like this next year before republicans then capitalize on and on the ballot box and we all go into a slumber and everything is just simply about whether trump goes ahead and runs again in two thousand twenty four and not about anything else while they still run the country and do whatever they want to us. We need them to do this all to us now so that we will see more loudon county. Virginia's so instead of getting a half dozen emails. I don't have time to respond to asking me.

In order to make it safer in the hopes that we may slow it down no man. Nah cut that thing off. It's violating me. Somebody told me recently. I make too much too many ideas crude sexual imagery in order to make very explicit and blatant points. Here's how i respond to complaints like that this morning. I actually went into my bible and searched for hebrew and greek words translated as harlot or whore. I found eighty eight of them. I found that eighty eight instances where the word of god uses that explicit language to describe us some very good company grow a set. No no no no no no no no go all the way do it all.

Ultimately words going yet and they just want to expanded into different areas and introduced different characters. And that's okay too.

Thank you for listening. I look forward to having your questions in another time, but I'm off to another event. This is Philadelphia's morning answer with Krista Go on Philadelphia's Am 9 80 the answer back with our friend Al experience and so grateful for his time. He is a man in demand. I have spoken with him now for the better part of a year, and I was really, really grateful to make friends with him early on in this Virus. You know, back when I think people of goodwill and of good faith we're all very look, This was back in a time. You know, almost a year ago when I invited and had a cordial conversation with Dr Rachel Levine, the health secretary of Pennsylvania, who now is about to be appointed the deputy health secretary of the United States, for Heaven sakes, unbelievably, but so we bring back Alex Berenson, who You know, has talked with us for the better part of a year. Lots has changed since then. Alex Berenson, the UN reported truths of lockdowns and covert 19. The both pamphlets available at amazon dot com, and I hope you get them, Alex. I mean, Let's go back to the beginning, when right people of goodwill we're all concerned, and we didn't know when we wanted answers. Oh, I mean, I think you know, I think that's a really good place to start, you know, a year ago. Uh, you know, ah, year ago at this time, right? We were really starting to hear about this virus in Wuhan. And you know, there were these stories of people dropping dead and emergency rooms being overrun. The Chinese had just, you know, they just done this lock down a hard lockdown of tens of millions of people. And look, I was scared. People were scared and, you know, actually, it's funny. The market the suffering people react very much at that time and And I remember talking to a friend of mine. Who, you know who is a retired hedge fund manager. He said. Well, remember the first stars that sort of came and went. These things come and go, But a lot of people didn't think that And and and and and then it started to spread, and people got very, very scared. I think you know, I think, really, when it spread to Italy, or, you know, sort of spread visibly to Italy because he know now he was spreading out of China. Or for months. You know, before anybody knew about it's just a normal paying attention, But when it hit when it hit Italy, people got very, very scared. And that triggered this. You chain reaction which we still have not been able to get out of Now, if you said to me last year, or if I did you you're not going to know anybody who died from this most likely first light and you're certainly not going to know anybody who's died from this who wasn't 75 or 80. And sick. You would have said to me, okay? I mean, that sounds that sounds like we're gonna get through this pretty well. And if I said you, you know, there's never gonna be a situation where a hospital in a major city Um, you know, is overrun with the dead or, you know, or even can't take patients who are you know who get in a car accident? Because there's no beds for that person. You would have said to me, okay? And if I'd sent you, by the way, no kids, we're going to die from this. I mean, essentially, no kids. Aren't already very sick are going to die from this. You decide that's great. And and if I'd said to you and you know, it looks like it looks like You know, most people under 50, who again are very sick are going to have a very mild course of this. Yes, they might be sick. They might be laid up for a couple of days. They might have a fever, but really, it looks like they're gonna be fine. You said that's great. And then if I paid you, and a year later, we would be living with masks. And partial lockdown and school closures and international travel restricted and you know terror in the you know large parts of the country or or, you know, not part of the country, but people in the country that tens of millions of people in the country would still be afraid to leave their houses. You'd have said to me. What are you talking about, Alex, but that doesn't make any sense. You're right. It doesn't make any sense. And Alex fast forward into January, 6th which a lot of people make political I would ask you when you saw the events of January 6th. I haven't talked to you since then. On the events of the capital. It was what I thought. Of course. It was around the political event that day the certification of the electoral college vote, but I wondered how much of that was co vid frustration? Do you think I mean, it's possible that some of the other honestly I think, right I thought was a disaster. I immediately thought fertilizer. Trump reacted terribly. But it was immediately obvious to me that the left was going to use this against the right there. You know, First of all, it was disgusting. Let's be honest. It was disgusting. What happened And it was a failure of policing and it was a failure of Honestly, sir, the Republican Party to you know not to just say Look, the election is over. And you have a president that should have happened. Okay, But but but the counter attacked that you know, the left really saw an opportunity and they have I mean, the fact that they shut down Parlor, which you know parlor is was the competitors to Twitter, which is now sort of semi back up. But but Amazon essentially put parlor out of business in a matter of days. Uh, you know, claiming that it's somehow had excited this violence, which is not touch. Um, you know, there's plenty of hate speech on Twitter. There's he talked Facebook all these things. Social Media platforms have lots of angry speech of them. Um, uh, I don't want to give Don't want to give the people who attacked the capital on album Okay? No, I don't either. I just think is a collective population. I we are As you know better than anybody. We're this is not going away. I just tweeted today. It seems to me that the ruling class has now risen up in a very profound way from from social media folks. You know the big tech folks the Wall Street folks were seeing with this hedge fund stuff today. I mean, teachers unions. It's like all the power structure has reasserted that reasserted itself. You got the troops in the streets in D. C. It's like they're all back with a vengeance, and they're telling the American public sit down and shut up. We're back and we're in control, and it's at a time when the public is extremely ground down. And tired and I think Cove. It is a lot to do with that is all my point is well, I mean, look, I think there's something that I look, I think you could draw a line from the black lives matter purchased over the summer. Which were just as you know, there were more violent than what happened to Kevin. But it just wasn't the captain. Okay, so and that doesn't matter. Okay? And it doesn't matter that the president didn't speak out against it. So I don't wanna give people a pass.

"Alex Berenson graduated from Yale University back in nineteen ninety four with degrees in history and economics he then joined the Denver post as a reporter in nineteen ninety six he became one of the first employees at the St dot com which was a ground breaking financial news website back in nineteen ninety nine he then joined the New York times at the times covered everything from the drug industry to hurricane Katrina and he served two stints as a correspondent in Iraq he left the times in two thousand ten to devote himself to writing fiction but conversations with his wife let him do begin researching the science around cannabis and mental illness the project that became the book tell your children the truth about marijuana mental illness and violence time permitting tonight with Alex we'll talk about that book as well he has been all over the country and in different stories being quoted as the ex New York times reporter warning about big pivot from officials to justify lockdown strategy and I thought let's bring him on Alex first of All I Want to thank you for the guts for coming forward to talk about this because of that because a lot of things that we believe here on this program so walking to coast to coast Alex pleasure to be on this this coronavirus story is unbelievable it's I've said from the get go that I believed it was concocted in a lab that the media was creating the hysteria what's your take on this now Alex is is is IT insider looking at him basically what I'm I'm not an insider at all I'm really an outsider and really what all turned to look at some of the data that's come out around the coronavirus and who who's really most likely to be affected by a which is very clearly elderly people and people with underlying conditions and questions about you know the bottling that shows the shooter step counts and what that you know whether that model it's been actor which clearly has not been and you know now I think there are questions about these but some of the the the death tolls and hal Walker correction we are a United States and New York City interstate accounting yes you know what I mean it's not it's not a secret that they're doing this is public that they're doing this in a in a fairly aggressive way and you know any questions about the application of the lockdowns and lockdown versus social distancing versus masks I'm I'm I'm I'm not particularly interested in where the the coronavirus came from whether I I doubt it was biologically engineered or anything like that in in general my my explanations for human events in human decision making tend to run towards incompetence and political pressure and people talking themselves into positions that they have a hard time talking about out of I I I don't really believe in grand conspiracy so I may be different than you or me listeners in that way that doesn't mean we don't have a problem that we have a problem we have lock downs that are very very economically destructive and societally destructive and constitutionally destructive and we basically did does in a matter of days he's in mid March and I understand why we did them there was a lot of fear at the time and we hadn't really prepared for this thing will you know inside world we could have and we you know we absolutely hit the panic button and the media encourage that but now that we have a lot more data about the corona virus and it doesn't seem to be quite as scary or is the interest of the general population as we thought you know I think it's it's it's time and past time to consider what we're gonna do next so that's that's my focus and I'm not some insider and I don't have people whispering to me from the C. I. A. K. you know what they really know I I I you know about the corona virus in it I'm not going to that's not a game I'm gonna play so I just I just want to clear but that's as somebody who's been in the media for about a number of years when we look at what was happening as this for started breaking I've never seen media handle a story like this where they were giving us and they still do now daily counts of deaths and infections when they never did this with the seasonal flu were upwards of sixty thousand Americans die every year they never reported on that didn't didn't know know where ever did I see stories about twenty people have died from the flu tonight but with this every day that was account and I think they scared the living daylights out of people and that's really true that part is clearly to first thought you just said you know it's not true that every year sixty thousand there have up to up to up to but yes but but you know the full company does every year and with the exception in the last twenty years of the you know the H. one and one swine flu in two thousand nine nobody pays any attention to it you know it calms and you'd think they'd tell you to get a vaccine and some people do and some people don't and and you know and then if you you know a few people die from it and that's the end of it I I totally agree and we don't count the death this way don't shut down the country this way and you know we we have treated this entirely different and partly I mean you can clearly see several reasons one is you know he came out of China and it was scary yeah okay and it's it's not the flu I mean physically obviously different than the full if the different buyers to see different file by rolled back to the flu and you know sort of the original stars and murders are very we thought so so you know this this has something in common with those of people were scared okay that's one reason a second reason is that you know when it came to the United States where it really hit hard where has it really hit hard what New York City so so what what we know we're near street near city is the media capital of the world so anything that happens in New York City gets magnified and blown out of proportion yeah you know I mean and if if I what this is an important thing so the things that are important get really blown out of proportion and what else we know well I mean people in the media hate Donald Trump I mean a lot of them not all along yeah and let's you know let's end this so if you lived in Brooklyn or if you live in Brooklyn and you you know you were afraid in mid March or late March that this might actually kill you or kill someone you knew and at the same time you hate Donald Trump and you personally blame trump this well there was a there was a hysteria that picked up but you can see in both the articles in the you know in the CNN coverage and the tweets and it was off the charts and it has not gone away and I understand why people are scared but what has happened now is people are actively mislead people in the media and they are actively misleading Americans about what the risks are here so if you look at the rest okay one of the most unbelievable statistics and that is how age stratified the death for him in the best estimate is that more people over the age of one hundred one hundred have died worldwide from this been under the age of thirty this isn't this just does not affect you don unity you know children can get it but they don't get sick from it they don't die from it same with teenagers and people in their twenties also I mean there's gonna be some rare exceptions this stuff just the way you know a plane crash in once in a while it does not even flying is not six this is incredibly age stratified and that doesn't mean that we shouldn't do a lot about it it doesn't mean we should try to protect people but but the strategy of shutting down the country to protect people who are who are in nursing homes is you know it's a crazy strategy but if you're going to be honest you have to be on but he's getting sick and dying in what about the governors who seem to me in my opinion they are petrified of their own personal political career so they all jumped on the same bandwagon going I got to do something to I mean if if the governor of Massachusetts shut down his state I'm gonna shut down mine and I think it begin the mushroom like that in snowball either to your the other ways they're petrified the people people because the media has stepped this all right in favor of this most of the country at least maybe in the last week it has started to change a little bit but in March in in March in late March and early April there was nothing you could do that people wouldn't have support and so and so the government and and by the way it looks the governor of New York state well you know into Cuomo when he said I think we're gonna need a hundred forty thousand bags and you know we're gonna need forty thousand violators those numbers came from a real projection wasn't just making that up so that terror did you know that he I mean he he you know he I'm not gonna say he was terrible but the terror that you could see going through you know state officials was real okay so that happened and there was and there's political gain for for some of these and they didn't want to be accused of doing nothing and they didn't want to give them their number so now where are we were entered worded dangerous spot because anybody who looks at the numbers with it with any sort of reasonable hi right now can see that the threat is not what we thought it was instead of being a hundred and forty thousand bets New York state yet most it's gonna be eighteen thousand beds and that number's going down instead of instead of being forty thousand ventilators near St probably peaked at about four thousand dollars so the projections were off by ninety percent but the problem is the lock down has actually been even worse than we expected a month ago in terms of their economic here in terms of their societal here arguably in terms of their you know constitutional hit and so the sure has proven to be really terrible and the disease has proven to be not as terrible as you thought so if you're a politician you how do you walk away and how do you back off it without blowing up your political career and I think that's where these guys are now absolutely and it stands in some of the mainstream media anchor people these cable news channels they're still getting paid so of course they don't care what's going on and so they jump on the bandwagon of shut the country down let's protect everybody but they're still getting their checks Alex a very very big checks very yeah absolutely what a situation my gosh it's frustrating for a lot of people in the desk out they've got up to about thirty thousand now that they claim have died from the corona virus do you think that include some of the seasonal flow well it's it's it's more complicated than that and you know actually tonight because I'm trying to get you know sort of look at the New York City number so near city has reported about twelve thousand people in the last month has died from from the bars that seventy five hundred oracle confirm another four thousand problem where they actually don't even have a positive test result here's what's confusing all so that's eleven thousand hold that thought right there Alex we're gonna get a break and come back we'll pick it up right there at that spot because

Is What We're Being Told About The Coronavirus Pandemic Wrong
"Today okay we're gonna talk a little bit more about a guy named Alex Berenson now if you don't know who he is he's a former New York times reporter and he is making news this morning for his hypothesis about what's going on in this country he's raising a lot of questions and a lot of concerns about the virus predictions and the models that he says were very exaggerated and he says in his estimation it has resulted in serious damage to the U. S. economy here's this clip I'm a journalist and what I what I think I'm pretty good at ease is seeing whether what people say and winds up with what's really happening and unfortunately what we're seeing and what we have seen for the last couple weeks is that the models would have predicted really apocalyptic things in places like New York City and nationally and in the U. K. don't seem to be matching what's going on in reality and in some cases Beasley's epidemiologic models are extremely new they've gone extremely sour in in a matter of Deeks and so I think we really have to ask what's going on here and whether or not there are strategies that might be less damaging to the economy that that would do just as well because we've we've taken huge steps we've you know we've put ten million people out of work more actually because that's the official numbers in just a couple weeks because I'm real societal harm and destruction we've done it on the basis of models that don't seem to line up with reality in real time this is a discussion and debate that's beginning to surface this morning on a pretty evident an emotional level in this country are the steps that we have taken have we gone too far is it been too much of a stretch for this country at the peril of our economic well being right well we can look to a country this done differently the Swedish government continues to advocate for relaxed measures are the Swedish public health agency they're telling citizens cover mouth when they cough or sneeze or wash hands but there's no state home orders all schools are open all businesses are open and everything's just run as it normally does and their infection rate their faith and their fatality rate from infection is over seven percent higher than here much higher it's three percent here in this country they have a seven point six eight percent of the Swedes have tested positive have died in Berenson is saying in his estimation this is an issue of balance maybe social isolation isn't needed in some places some of the data indicates that there are places that have had relaxed social isolation and there has not been the spread that we've seen in New York does it really work do we really need it and at what cost right well and and Sweden went with the herd the herd mentality right thinking okay we'll just kind of let it do what it does do it other flu pandemic or other flus do right and and see what happens and and you know it's getting mixed mixed reviews were saying we we needed a

I I don't like the Kissy faced with no heart because it looks like the way that children draw the giants Jarvis bad and so Michael Return nineteen is a but in D- I think pretty much. Just a but yeah. I WANNA work toward the bike. So I think is the crosswalk little story about. Why and the reason is if you've ever read this book called and don't see the movie it's fucking terrible. Eat pray love. I know I found his Any pre loved. She is challenged by a group of friends to find a word that means something to her so at the beginning of the book. They're like what's your word like I'm fucking up. And by the end of the book she is in Italy and she over hears her Italian friend across the street saying Ottaviano but it means to literally to crossover both in across loch but also to make a transition

A.J. Green's injury on 'subpar' Bengals practice field will cost wide receiver up to two months
"Speaking of injuries unfortunately an M._r._i.. Has revealed that Cincinnati Bengals Wide Receiver A._J.. Green has torn ligaments in his left. Ankle is according affording to Schefter here. They are likely to sideline green six to eight weeks up really not a good situation and teammate Tyler Boyd questioned the turf. The team was practicing on when green was injured. It was terrible. I couldn't run any routes out there. I'm falling all over the ground man it was it was bad. It was rocks pebbles out there man it was somewhere we should have been just feel like the turf was old. You know it just wasn't we didn't get good traction in and out of her breaks. You know a lot of guys not just me was on the ground but I mean who wasn't up there that long but there's gotTa make a word man. We gotta get it well. The turf was that welcome stadium at the University of Dayton where the bengals are practicing coach you buy this well. I haven't seen the video really in this instance probably not but I will say that you know feel. Surfaces are very very important for player safety. You know whether it's a grass field you know what is the old school latch with Pittsburgh steelers. We practice on hard old school astroturf every day for five years so no you got to look at it but in that instance I think it was a matter of the kind of rolling up on the back of his ankle and that was what I saw caused that particular injury about sure it was the field service problem here in addition to the injury of course which is is paramount is the optics of this and when you have a player who says this sort of perception is reality and then then it's out there and you got players. You might believe this is the case whether the optics to this are awful and this time of year teams are trying to realize their fan N._B._C.'s. I've been a part of that for a number of years. Every team has an operations department and kind of like the offensive line. You'd never talk about the operations department until there's a problem and part of their responsibility is to advance where hotels are safety of the fields whether or not the field deal with safer not now the perception is that it was a problem now e._j.. Green fairness may have gotten hurt it was on their practice field but they're players now think that was a factor and they're at the University of Dayton given rookie head coach. He's trying to establish himself itself and now he has a problem in the locker room because these players are questioning what the organization did and that Operation Staff that you're referring to my signed off on the practices being here the League went to them. They sent a site survey team to inspect the field and that site survey survey team for the Bengals said this field is okay to practicing and maybe they thought it's one practice we can get through now. You've got a situation where you see A._J.. Green get hurt on this play and we can take another look at it right here where he goes up for the past the D._v. lands on his ankle. He's on the turf tears ligaments in his ankle. He's going to be sixty weeks. Think about how much is at stake your now. You have a first year head coach Zack Taylor who's trying to come in and implemented program. They've already lost their first round draft. Pick joyner Williams to a season ending injury. Now you lose your left tackle. You lose your number one wide receiver. They are at a loss there and A._J.. Green himself is going into the last year of his contract so at a time when we're talking about new deals for Michael Thomas in Amari Cooper Julio Jones guess who else was on that list of A._J.. Green so what happens now to his value as argument now that he is going to be out for some period of time and organization standpoint. That's a really difficult position because A._J.. Degrees could say hey. I've done all the right things. I was out there practicing at the university because you wanted me to and now that's going to hurt me and take money out of my own pocket. It could really cause a situation to go awry very quickly and again even if the operations team went through all the protocols the the perception is that this feel wasn't safe and now they have a problem with one of their best players. Yeah I think that team without J. Green if you look at their record versus with huge and so he's a big part of their team. He's going to be missed. This is that there's a fair amount of injury here to start. You know this is not the way not the way you want to get off the ground. No team does last last year he missed time with a toe injury and when he was out of there the offense did not operate the same toddler boys production fell off and everybody thinks talent boy. We'll just emerge as the number one guy and he's a really good wide receiver but the fact that matters A._G.. Green when he's out there makes tyler. Holler bought a better received. John Ross still has not stepped up as the first round draft pick that he was. He says he's ready to do that. Will they need him to do that. They've got some other players Alex Berenson some good young receivers but A._J.. Green is on a level with Julio Jones. He's is that kind of talent and when you Jack Taylor coming into his offense it's hard to get by without somebody that good.
Is marijuana more dangerous than we thought?
"The top stories. Many folks are going to be watching in two thousand nineteen is some of the statistics and crime data coming out since a legalization of marijuana in some states. I had a chance to sit down and chat with New York Times. Reporter Alex Berenson, he's author of a new book, titled tell your children which deals with the dangers and the unreported crimes that we're seeing due to marijuana one of the first questions. I asked him was why are these crime numbers being? So under reported think the advocacy community has been. Very very successful. In the last twenty years convincing people that this is a medicine that there's all sorts of positive qualities to using it. And that there really isn't anything harmful. That it's a plant. It's very funny to me that serious. Journalists have bought into this idea that it's a medicine. It's clearly an intoxicant, first and foremost and alcohol has some medicinal qualities too. But we don't call it a medicine, then we shouldn't. And I don't understand why we do this with marijuana. How big is the cannabis lobby? It's big it's big there's a couple of major nonprofits. But what they're also is. Now, it's just a lot of people investing a lot of money. And frankly, I don't know how investments are going to pan out because it looks like the people who really use a lot of cannabis. You know, there's been efforts to brand this stuff. But it looks like it's not like, y you can't really planned it that. Well, it's more people just you know, they want essentially, they want the high, and that's pure the easiest way to get that as pure teach see for
Uber posts $1 billion loss in quarter as growth in bookings slows
"Delivery business revenue growth of thirty eight percent in the third quarter was almost half of what the growth rate was six months earlier when the company was negotiating a nine point three billion dollars investment led by SoftBank. So what's going? Right. We know Uber's public yet. Right. This is one of the IPO that were intimidating in two thousand nineteen the magazine is going to go into that this week as well. But Uber does release a limited set of financial information. They did that it's a move that the privately held company voluntarily does each quarter. It also offered a limited glimp- glimpses. We set into the food delivery business for the first time. So we're getting an idea of how that is going over each generating two point one billion in gross bookings. And that represents about seventeen percent of Uber's twelve point seven billion dollars in gross bookings last quarter. So, you know can appear pulling it back a little transparency into what's going on in the company. Right. And it will be amazing to see twenty thousand nine hundred you as you alluded to Alex Berenson has a really important story in this year ahead issue that comes out later this week about all those unicorns sort of pawing at the IPO gay to extend that metaphor painfully. I was saying Uber has. Seventy-six billion dollar valuation. So if you see any sign of things, maybe not going as strong as you thought are slowing down. It's gotta make investors maybe potentially rethink or just take at least another look at that. Because that's do start to wonder. I mean, this is a rabbit hole. We could go way down. But you do start to wonder that once Uber is public in the same way that we look at other bellwether stocks to give us an indication about travel or consumer spending. What is it that Uber will ultimately really give us? I mean, it does have a window, especially given what you just said about ubereats into a lot of consumer spending, consumer habits, etc. So I have to talk about the biggest loser. Biggest lager in the market by a country mile. I'm sorry. PG plunging twenty one
