The inside story of the Iranian attack on Al Asad Airbase
"General Frank Mackenzie, commander of US forces in the Middle East, monitored the attack from his headquarters in Tampa, Florida. Walking into this small room off his main operation Center, where he could talk directly to the only two people above him in the chain of command. They bring in secretary defense and a little bit later they brought in the president to this conversation. We're listening to the reports of the missiles flying. You ever been on one like this? I've never been on one like this, where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high Iranian attack on al Assad was in retaliation for a stunning US operation. President Trump ordered six nights earlier, a drone strike, which killed Iran's most powerful general Qassim Suleimani. The blood of many Americans is on the hands of the same salamoni. He was this close to an indispensable man as you could find inside Iran, where he went violin. And death followed during the American occupation of Iraq. Sulamani had orchestrated attacks which killed more than 600. U. S troops and, according to Mackenzie, He was planning to do it again. We saw intelligence reports where the same cell Amani was moving various attacks, dreams forward against our forces in Iraq against our embassy and against other bases there. With the imminent perhaps an hour's, perhaps in days, probably not weeks. Until then, the USAID shied away from going after Sulamani for fear, killing such a high ranking government official. Would only provoke Mauritanian attacks. I never take killing anyone is a zone easy decision, but I think the risk of not acting in this case Outweigh the risks of acting So yes, I was good with the decision on January 3rd of last year on airport security camera recorded. Sulamani is arrival in Baghdad on a commercial flight from Damascus. Kensi was watching from a different angle. You have the drones overhead. Do you see him Healthy? Yes, yes. As soon Money's entourage pulled away from the plane. McKenzie gave the kill order to the commander controlling the drones. And then I said, Take your shot when you got it. Missile slammed into both vehicles simultaneously. There's no backslapping. There's no cheering because now I have to prepare to deal with the consequences. The action, General Mackenzie was sure Iran would retaliate, but he didn't know how and neither for awhile. Did the Iranians. I believe they went into a period of this organization because they had lost the officer. Who really spoke up and shaped everything up and told them what they were gonna do. So he's kind of ominous silence. It was a very ominous silence. And what was the first sign that Iran might really be thinking of her? Ballistic missile attack, they began to move their ballistic missiles. The attack was just hours away. When major Alan Johnson got the word. Iran's most powerful weapons were aiming for al Assad. My intelligence officer pulled me aside and Basically said, Sir, I've got some bad news for you. What's up? We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium range ballistic missiles in their intention is the level this base And we may not survive. This was a completely different threat. Lieutenant Colonel Jim Garland commanded an army battalion at Al Asad. Sprawling air base about 120 miles west of Baghdad, where the U. S operated scores of helicopters, drones and other aircraft. Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles now, sir? It was such a unprecedented threat. I don't think it was ever calculated. S o the capability to, uh, prevent a ballistic missile attack. It wasn't there. Did you have a plan for what to do? Way came up with the plan. The only real defense against ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm's way.

Liverpool Crash and Burn
"Liverpool losing to burnley by final score of one nil a late penalty for ashley. Barnes the difference and this result significant on so many levels for matches in a row without a goal in the league for liverpool a sixty eight match. Home unbeaten streak snapped. You gotta go back to early. Two thousand seventeen almost four years ago for the last time liverpool lost a premier league game at anfield. They now six points off the league lead from our perspective. We welcome in stuart robson shock his lob julian the ron robbo all start with you. What's gone wrong at liverpool. Well in the last few games the final pass hasn't been quite good enough. They played with the fluency today. They go to into some very good areas. I mean trent alexander. Arnold must have had the ball twenty thirty times inside the burnley box with time to pick out across play cross into the box and he picked out the wrong option and the movement in the box. Particularly the first of wasn't good enough. You wanted to come short at times and rather mike dynamic hawksley Was on the right hand. Side is not really a front. Bless we've moved wasn't great in the box amani trying to the runs the deliveries from trent alexander. Arnold were good enough. He should've just been whipping booze. The goalkeeper in the back four and allowing people to mike runs into it. He was trying to pick people up. So they're they're lacking confidence at the moment you can tell that guy moron and other disappointing display from the shock. It wasn't for a shortage of opportunities. Perhaps nothing more symbolic liverpool recently than that. Remiss handed an opportunity and couldn't put it in. Yeah it was a rather ridiculous defensive era that the letter again and yet a lot of ground to cover before taking the chance on and let's be honest as good. As as nick pool was all game long. he shouldn't have said a chance to we. Went for a little bit too much. Pays the crossbar kind of some some liverpool up over recent weeks. They've been getting opportunities. But i just feel too many in that squad seem to have misplaced the shooting boot
Racial Justice and Medicare for All
"I am benjamin day. I'm stephanie nakajima and this is medicare for all the podcast for everybody who needs healthcare so today. We're gonna discuss a topic that is central to our success in winning medicare for all when we as a movement talk about what it's going to take to win often when you hear issues like fundraising publication electing the right. Legislators there's other things that usually come up. But i think there's something that maybe even more important than any of those things putting us on the path to victory and that is of course confronting the deeply ingrained racism and our structures and cells. When you look at where. The united states is in compared in comparison to its pure countries. It's impossible to explain why we are so much more of an unequal and capitalist society than everywhere else that looking at the role of racism through our history Its impact on our safety net and the neglect and vilification of our public programs. So this is like a big conversation and we could probably have several podcasts on it but today we want to talk about racism specifically in the healthcare system and how medicare for all would and wouldn't address in a racism at the doctor's office and and then a little bit about the interrelated nature of our movements a movement with the larger fight for racial justice. And why and how. They are interconnected so ben. Do you want to introduce our guest absolutely so it is my great pleasure to introduce the wonderful person on the screen with us Dr beata amani. Who is an associate professor for. The charles r drew university of medicine and science and This is a timely is a lead co chair of the covid nineteen taskforce on racism and equity which is housed at the ucla center for study of racism social justice and health. Welcome dr money. I'm so excited to be here. It is great to have you so before we dive into this deep topic Can you tell us a little bit about your background. And why did you choose to become an epidemiologist with a focus on racism and what is epidemiology. So i mean that's a that's a wonderful question. Just what is an epidemiologist. Because i think for so many people. My friend circle in my family This current moment had them Here in the word and being like Isn't one of those. So epidemiology is essentially like the science and the studying of the disease distribution pattern the the distribution patterns of disease and anything associated with z's And it's not only about studying the the distribution and the pattern of disease and its related outcomes but it's also about studying the things that go into effect right the things that are in place the policies and practices that we have what are the effects of those things on the distribution of disease disease-related outcomes. So what that meant for me I think growing up was. I always loved Health and i loved politics And i was always thinking about the relationship between these two things And so when. I know you're thinking about how to have some sort of impact especially as a young person And you hear about like institutions. Like the cdc or the who right You really can you know. Start to give a sense of like. What does it mean to be able to like. Go out and steady and to collect information that can be so useful that it can actually save. Lives like on a larger level. These are to me that young person you know who was really drawn to like the field of setting in a deniau genes that then overtime epidemiology. That also came to me a tool set and a set of ideas that belonged to and we're a service of a system that Not only structured by racism. Right like us. Stephanie mentioned beginning at the heart of what we're talking about today But also was instrumental in structuring it and and creating and maintaining that And so then what that meant for me. Somebody who was studying it was that i was really drawn initially to infectious disease epidemiology Because you saw so much like an equity And also just they kind of racialized ideas about populations being generated around who's sick. Who's not risk of people who are not sick from those. Who are you know. So all those racial congregations And then moving into what we call behavioral. Fb and the idea that people's behaviors and they're like and and you know people's behaviors and their own actions can be connected and related to their health. So there's a potential for some sort of empowerment right to what i am. I think you know today like loosely. and specifically your social epidemiologist. Somebody who wants to study the distribution of disease and disease related factors In populations and communities on basant understanding systems structures in power
"amani" Discussed on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald
"Which your stance viewpoint on law enforcement as well as what's arguably become a very contentious issue in terms of defunding. For sure I can definitely understand where people are coming from. You know when it comes to being objective with the police and not once have ever said you know all police are bad You know we need to you know destroy the police system or anything like that. That's not where I'm coming from this. Is that I'm trying to portray but you know the numbers don't lie their statistics coming out every single year every single week, and it's just like I don't want any more studies what I want is change and with my organization. It's like what we realized is you cannot change what you do not acknowledge. So all we wanna do is bring the facts, bring the statistics, bring stuff that you guys are bring out to the forefront for everyone to view. Let's bring that back towards you and then ask you hey now the to acknowledge this, what can you come towards us change so as far as funding I think it's very clear we have the Hamilton police. Being funded a hundred and seventy four million dollars and that right there that number is just already outrageous When we when we look at their bill, we see them spending thousands of dollars on Cheetos. Meanwhile, our entire streets are filled with homeless people the black community and the community are living in the worst quality buildings, rats, roaches, aching go on. So it just shows that We see where the priority is in the city. And all are asking not only black people poor people Maher marginalized communities were asking, Hey, can we get some of that money that is also public tax dollars and reallocated into our community? So we can actually have something to be proud. You know actually work together to better communities so that the police do not have to engage so much within our communities that is why to funding is so important because if it's not coming from that from who is harming us, who else should it come from? Excellent good question. Almost rhetorical but. True what you say and you know because I myself and the people that I interview and clearly you are as well for having spearheaded this movement and this organization you know it's about being solution focused and it's about inviting everybody's voice at the table. So as to collectively unify and be part of the solution because the more plugged in the more engaged the more receptive people feel. To being part of something that they share commonality with then that's when we start to see shift in change. That's when things start to happen. That's what becomes the catalyst. So has there been any receptivity or curiosity or any reaching out on your behalf where anybody to invite the police to use their boys in a constructive way that they can acknowledge and validate the concerns of what can't be disputed. But at the same time working together, right instead of fighting against each other or were there being perceivable some ongoing divisiveness which is I know what you're. This is not what you're about. But I'm just talking about from an organizational standpoint has there been any involvement or exchanges between you and the police positive negative otherwise. To, elicit their support or elicit their perspective or them rolling up their sleeves and saying, how can we work together?.

Does killing Soleimani really change anything in the Middle East?
"For a generation Iran's May General Sulejmani he was a consequential Fica League in the Persian Gulf for the Americans in the region Sunnis? He was a terrorist mastermind for the Iranians the Assad regime in Syria Hezbollah in Lebanon. Sulejmani was a hero who protected the Shia cresent in the region. So it's no wonder the Iranian generals death via a drone attack attack in Baghdad. That was a huge news story. Earlier this month cast into the money rainy and military commander assassinated in the US drone strike on mm struggling marks a huge escalation coming just days at was revered by Iran supporters in proxies being blamed for the deaths of hundreds of Americans in the Middle East over the we took took action last night to stop a war. What comes next? What's the broader strategy? Here we did not take action to start a war. Your since the American killing of Sulejmani Tehran launched a missile strike on your spices in Iraq and in the process mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian Ilana carrying one hundred seventy six passengers something. The Mullah's had initially denied responsibility but crucially the Iranians signings avoided killing Americans. which was the red line? The president trump has drawn. US military response. So we'll this episode. Leave Iran Ryan stronger or is tyron now more isolated than ever and what is the showdown between Tehran and Washington Maine for Iraq the US military Tori prisons there and Iran's nuclear ambitions. Danny Applica- is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington and Co host of the AAAGH. Ah podcast what the Hell is going on. Making sense of the world get identity. Hey Tom and I'm in. Sokoll is author of Iran Rausing the survival and and future of the Islamic Republic and CO author of Islam beyond borders the Oma in world politics. Welcome back to Iran. How good morning now? Also Amani abetted genocide in Syria to keep the Assad regime in power. He's responsible for the deaths of many American troops. He armed Hezbollah in. Lebanon with rockets is to attack. Innocent Israelis killed many innocent Sunnis in Iraq. So I mean isn't the world better off without Sulejmani. Were president trump. I think so. And also quite a number of American allies in the region Probably I think the same way but at the same time demand was a national hero and in fact that he was the one of the top strategic brains behind Iran's overseas operations and expansion of eight onion influence in the region. I will just support related to the fair that it only leadership has about the possibility of an American attack or an Israeli attack on a combined and attack. But let me see this Tom that nobody is commendable. dimitris full of commanders. Top commanders into the Nobel Prize winners and so on General money is being replaced And I think e to the debt is a widespread view in the West. That if you bump one or two individuals isn't the situation is going to get better We duty cold in history that take for example a Prime Minister Anthony Eden go around the nineteen fifties and calling for the elimination of Jamaa Nasser as the national president of Egypt and has was that this man is removed from a then. Everything will be fine. Nothing died in nine hundred. Seventy and a situation has not improved a cold and and at the same thing was said to be so I mean the point though. Is that knocking off Salomon. He's not going to make a great deal of difference. But also can I just add to this Dani salamone and these Iranian backed Shia proxies. They did help inadvertently into why help. America Islamic state. So does it worry you that people cheering the loudest about this. Guy's death other suny jihadists in there are slighted areas in the desert and the mountains of Iraq and Syria. I don't think they're the ones who are cheering the loudest I. I think you heard pretty loud cheering from here. I think you heard some plenty of loud cheering in In Iraq and Lebanon and and elsewhere throughout throughout the region. Look you know. I think it's important to acknowledge that. That as the head of the cuts force Qassem Soleimani was a very powerful folks very influential very strategic and very effective leader and he brought that effectiveness to things. That would terrible And the arming of Hezbollah. The murderer of half million Syrians. The arming of mass. The arming of in Yemen. We could go on for a while here but but But he did all of those things but when when the challenge was from Sundays you had is. He helped set up and guide ride. The hoste. Shabby the popular mobilization units in Iraq that That that ended up being part of the battle to to defeat Isis. The problem here is that every situation in the region is is more complicated than the enemy of my enemy is my friend. Just because Stalin Fort with us to defeat Nazi Germany did not make stolen a good guy. And if you look at these anti-regime protests some and. I've been breaking out in Iran since Tehran admitted that its military military shot down. A Ukrainian passenger Ilana have the Iranians overreached because despite the Iranian successes in Iraq Syria and Lebanon on on their rule out officials sites there on stable they print across he so have the Iranians overreached. There's no doubt that many Iranians feel about the Ashim and today have protested over the last few months in order to bring about A structural reforms today as a system of governance and economy which is setting enormously under represent- trump's sanctions but has the Iran overreached. What are I pointed out earlier I mean Iran does fear a a very strongly as possible American that much Israeli combined attack and therefore what update on your the humans done his belt reasonable security and press such for itself which would really want? Shepherdess Arafat at all costs but that does not necessarily Saudi mean that Iran is only Aggressive power in the region aggressive actor in the region. I mean. Let's not forget that that that the destabilization Iraq really started the two thousand three. US invasion of that country. Okay so the. The American invasion of Iraq helped Iran on because it overturned the suny state and it created a Shia majority Stein. I saw a natural law with the Shia brethren in Tehran following following on from that Danny shortly a problem about striking at pro Iranian sheeham paramilitary groups as trump has done is the now part of the Iraqi state. So is it any wonder. Washington's increasingly modulation is part of the world. First of all. I think it's offensive talk about Shiites. As if they're all some sort of monolith. The share of Iraq are Arabs. The Shia of Iran are Persians. These these are different people this. These two countries Shia versus Shia fought a bloody war for eight years in which there were one million casualties casualties in the nineteen eighties. The notion that somehow Iraq is a natural satellite or or or or slave to Iran is wrong Iran has chosen to try to dominate that country and demonstrations throughout the central and southern part of Iraq. Over the last month have been against Iranian domination the Iranian consulate in Jeff was burned to the ground at the end of last year not by Sonny's he's not by Sunni jihadis not by Isis not by Kurds but by Shiites carrying placards yelling out to out for Iran. Get Out of our country and I think that that is absolutely right to suggest that Iran has gained more influence in Iraq since the demise of Saddam Hussein. I I guess I I'm just not that big a fan of Saddam Hussein and the and the stability that he brought to Iraq. I wish that the United States had done more in the aftermath of the wall. I think thinks that we I think that we failed miserably. In many instances I think it was absolutely fatal in two thousand eleven when at a time of genuine stability in Iraq Iraq. President Obama withdrew troops and really provided the opportunity for Isis. To rise up again. My guest Daniel Placate from the American Enterprise Institute. And I'm in Sokoll. He's the author of Iran rausing and Islam beyond borders. I mean how would you respond to all of this. Because we've got these tensions here between Tehran Iran and Washington and the Iranian backed Shia politicians released most of them in Baghdad. I support if not closer ties with Tehran. They want the the Americans out of Iraq. But don't the sooners and the Kurds fee for the Iranian intrusion in Iraqi sovereignty. I absolutely and of course sir. The APP is not only the president of the American so who'd be which are being the opposed to in Iraq but also the presence of eight onions there. No question Ah about that but at the same time if we know that the majority of the Iraqi population is made up of the Shiites and some powerful elements among the Shiites have got the value equals relationship and relationship. What they don't know in the meantime ago? The Iraqi parliament release the iranian-backed Majority Shia legislators I support the withdrawal of US troops Danny now given trump's ambivalence about the region and the fact that he was elected impact to get the US out of the so-called forever awards isn't a US military withdrawal from Iraq. Just what trump and many war-weary Americans want. Well it's kind of funny. Isn't it because we start off talking about the you know the Iranians and what they want and and of course. The number one goal is to get the Americans out of the region and that is in fact the instruction is that has gone out to all of their proxy groups. All around the region. Is You need to step up activities to get the Americans out. Then we've got the president of the United States. It's who dearest and fondest goal is to get American troops out of the region so so a couple weeks after killing Kassim Sulaimaniyah. We have this unbelievably in coherent bizarre response. Where we where we're doing exactly what the around him one let? This is what Donald Trump has to sort out. He has to sort out whether he's the president. He's the kind minded president who who leads in a forthright fashion against men like costume ceremony. Who Seek to destabilize the region and extend Iran's hegemony Germany or he is going to be the kind of president that like Bernie Sanders like Barack Obama wants to turn around and high tail fin is to the Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump's uh-huh Washington energy independent America Stein fought these endless wars danny well A? They aren't endless wars. We have lost fewer people in these. This was than than than we lost a single day in World War Two so while they are conflicts that have continued on and off to a certain extent. You know the notion Shen that we've been sold that somehow we've still got one hundred and fifty thousand troops on the ground and losing them at a rapid pace is just wrong. We lost six in Syria. I I mourn every single one of them but the Kurds lost eleven thousand in their fight against Isis. So what what. What is the reason? We'll tell you very straightforwardly woodley because every time we turn tail every time someone says let's get out of that bloody Middle East. Let's pay attention to something fun. Like Asia and you'd like that. Tom Would now but hang on your way but every time we say that we end up being dragged back because the dynamics in the region of the ones that bring us back we need. We need a long-term solution that lets us. Stay away for good rather than one where we run away. Anita did it come back every single decade I mean the two thousand fifteen nuclear deal Provided tyron with as much as apparently one hundred fifty billion dollar windfall. Aw and certainly many people who are skeptical of the deal side that the Iranian spent lavishly arming the Shia militias across the region. So what it was trump right to pull the US out of the deal and instead impose maximum Prussia built around these economic sanctions on Iran. I think he was totally wrong and and I can care. There has been a backlash president. Trump's would would you withdrawal has a basically a provoked said that on Not to really go for the for police. Speed to in order to rebuild that they have nuclear program and. I think you're going to really do that. And of course that also carries the risk of a possible confrontation from tation between the United States and Iran possibly Israeli attacks on Iran and that could easily dissolved in a regional warfare. That at the end nobody may may be able to control it Danny. Any I mean a lively debate. Thanks so much for being back on. ABC
President Trump returns to White House, threatening Iran and attacking impeachment
"Hill president trump is confronted with congressional frustration on multiple fronts at twenty one till Jim Bohannon takes that on we're speaking with brakes saddles reporter at the hill dot com the definitive publication of Capitol Hill who's written a most interesting article titled trump faces Dooling crises upon return to DC and of course obviously he's talking about the two I words a rod and the impeachment of the president seems to have turn down the heat a bit on the the Iran situation by essentially not responding to to Iraqi attacks which called zero casualties among Americans does that reduces back to to one crisis at least for the moment our world seems for the moment I think you now tension and ration down to the point that it's no longer sort of the crisis that I think on a wall is even just a couple days ago even twenty four hours ago certainly will still see you know Congress will have this war powers vote in the next few days so they'll still certainly the discussion about the president's handling of this Iran situation and you know the intelligence that led to the strike against General so Amani for the time being it does seem that you know the worst fears and at least sort of subsided and now I think once the trial begins we'll see the other I word impeachment sort of take center stage once again it's interesting to note this talk about whether or not Nancy Pelosi Sam's over the articles of impeachment there is exactly zero in the constitution about that in fact the whole sections about impeachment a sound as though they were written toward the tail end of the continental congresses gathering with no air conditioning and a haunted sweltering Philadelphia and at the time there was not even a unanimity among the delegates that they were gonna have an impeachment clause and so they it sounds like they said okay impeachment all right that will house can handle the impeachment part the trial okay that'll be the Senate if it's the the president of the Chief Justice will preside okay let's get out of here that that's the way it reads in the constitution is very sketchy but there's nothing in there about this transmission with a marching band from the south side of Capitol Hill to the north side of Capitol Hill of those referred to the house and Senate rules they are even better you have a status of law there just a something passed by the various bodies and that could be easily changed as to whether or not that is required to me and I have no constitutional scholar but the moment the two hundred eighteen person voted to impeach the president that was at the house it was out of it at that point it moved to the Senate automatically it isn't as though the people about end of Capitol Hill were not aware of what was going on and will be shocked to discover that someone from Nancy Pelosi's office is delivering articles of impeachment they know what's going on so I I this whole notion of whether she can withhold something strikes me as kind of odd given the lack of constitutional backing for that well I suppose that's you know him when he beat her only happens for time in the country's history as far as you learn something new each time it happens about the process I think you know there are certainly some surprising because of the route the speakers chosen but you don a good amount of support I think from our guests in the house now in the Senate we're seeing already a few Democrats who are sensually gently urging the speaker to to send those articles over so the son I can get on with the trial process and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw that pressure kind of build and not in the days to come to urge the speaker to send those articles over so the process can continue our we'd like you to see what's that word legislating the passage of bills by the house of the Senate for the president's signature to become law I would like to see any of that or is everybody fully into twenty twenty campaign mode I mean I would assume for example that once the impeachment trial is out of the way that the revised nafta will presumably be passed right so that's one of the U. S. and see a trade agreement that's one that certainly you can count on getting a vote in the Senate once this impeachment proceeding is is finished and done with so you know in the next several weeks you can succeed that otherwise you know they're still on going talks among lawmakers on issues like prescription drug pricing and capping that surprise medical billing efforts to and that process so and you know a few other things here and there but I think for the most part you know those are kind of highlights and then by a you know a few months from now the primary on the democratic side will be in full swing and focus will kind of shift to the campaign mode for a lot

Who was Qassem Soleimani, Iran's IRGC's Quds Force leader?
"Out there but the very biggest thing that happened on the day this is a huge case some solo Mani one of Iran's most really revered military generals is dead so mommy was trying to develop plans to attack American troops and diplomats because we've seen what's happened in Baghdad read sixteen thousand people that embassy in the attack on the embassy has led to now what the Pentagon has said is the air strike that killed this major running in military official this is big I mean who is stolen money it's funny as soon as his name came out I knew immediately because we've had people on talking about Iran including our old pal the former congressman from Ohio Bob Ney who spent time in Iran and he absolutely was one of those infamous military operators in the quicksand of the Middle East and he was the leader of the Islamic revolutionary guard corps is you know this is a guy who was definitely the general he was moving the pieces on the board in the pieces that he was he was moving was to get the US so his story ended Friday when a U. S. airstrike near the Baghdad airport killed him and a number of Iraqi military leaders soul Amani his career kicked in after Ron's nineteen seventy nine revolution and really kind of helped shape if you will the Islamic Republic that was in the the following on the heels of the the revolution so this was this is a bad guy I mean this was a guy who had serious diplomatic cloud I guess is the way to put it and he he wanted they thought top political office but he didn't end up doing that instead I mean he was the guy that was part of the the member the war with Iraq from nineteen eighty to eighty eight and all the economic power and of course that they had that was bloody it was brutal and he really helped that really helped to shape his career since our money was someone to be feared and he had the strength power and was somebody that people followed and the fact that a recent Pentagon estimates said that forces led by him or connected to him killed at least six hundred and eight US troops in Iraq between two thousand and three and two thousand and eleven so this is a good thing because when the president president trump pull the US out of the nuclear deal between Iran and other world powers they found themselves in this position of all this tension with us with the U. S. so Iraq's shi'ite militias were really harassing US troops they were firing rockets at bases that were used by Americans there was the attack in late December that killed the US contractor and then the air strikes against bases along the border of US airstrikes against the bases along the border with Syria used by Hezbollah that killed twenty five militia members an intervention a bunch more one is a fifty to seventy whatever was doesn't matter and then on new year's eve the Shiite militias and their supporters storming our embassy our U. S. embassy compound in Baghdad locally and and shockingly actually from everything that I saw nobody was killed in the chaos but the president warned that a Ron absolutely for this responsibility for the act and said there gonna be held responsible for that air strike on Friday morning killed not only sell Amani but Abu Mahdi al ma handed as he was in a rocky militia commander who equally was an imposing figure but the soul Mani is irreplaceable for this the Ronnie and Reggie I think it was incredibly shocking the news of his death to them and what kind of an effect it will have on their end the demise of such a revered figure on that area will be something to pay attention now there will be pressure to retaliate and what is that going to look like I mean pressure to retaliate on the U. S. I have to say Bravo because this was a huge move it was incredible news it was a smart thing to happen to take sole Amani out because of the fact that he was Iran's most powerful military leader and we've been in this sticky wicket since really twenty fifteen and then of course all of the economic pressure we're putting on Iran with sanctions except for a this is a matter how you feel about this president this is a win I mean this is a win there's no no doubt about that when I saw the images of what was happening in the embassy at the Baghdad abit embassy and realizing what was going on there this is it absolutely a very very big bold and necessary

August will go down in history as the month that drove investors crazy but left them ultimately unscathed the S. and P. five hundred lost one point eight percent for the month not stellar but the furthest thing from unprecedented Christian Amani invesco's chief investment officer spoke with Bloomberg's Paul Sweeney and Tom Kean about what August can tell us about the rest of twenty nineteen Christian if I take my Bloomberg terminal and I put my hand over the equity markets and look at everything else in the terminal there's no way I would suggest is resiliency inequities let's start with the why of August in the why of the summer why have equity's been so resilient. what would you have been resilient because the overall profitability of US companies despite what you may have learned from people is actually quite good and interest rates are quite low as well so that combination of good profitability and other alternatives being not sold but not so hot I think keeps people focused on equity so it is clearly the issue for just financial markets in general risk assets in particular has been the uncertainty about trade how are you kind of fact during that into your overall outlook for markets. what so low for the US markets anyway the trade remains the central issue and just to be clear if things get far worse I I think the markets are going to suffer having said that I think in the current context when we are simply talking about Paris that is the trump administration implementing certain track barracks on virtually all of Chinese exports we know what the implication of that that is the fact that Lee financial constant bother Dacian that is a tax on US consumers and we know what the impact of that is going to be no it's not good but it is not going to be catastrophic the you know there's enough momentum in the economy from jobs and some growth but but for people to live through that is somebody's equity international domestic because somebody told him to do that at the margin now are you stable or increasing international ownership or you migrating at the margin over to US domestic ownership. so by US valuation relative to international valuations are the potentially worse than that US equities are meeting will be more expensive so I think the mild at at the margin mother despite the fact that it may take awhile for all of this to play out the incremental allocation from my perspective is really going into emerging markets because the valuations and emerging market that extraordinarily attractive and eat trends for inflation rate in the morning market lower so question is we think about you know the the the trade uncertainty in the market place it kind of puts the fed and even a more difficult position here to me perhaps think it might have to kind of be a ball work a little bit against what some of the negative effects of uncertain trade what do you expect the fed to do over let's call the next several quarters and end do you think it will be enough. what so I I think care Powell actually indicated in his Jackson Hole speech as to what he's going to going to be doing in that despite his characterization of a mid cycle look of the calibration after the July meeting it because it does it is become quite clear to me that if the market the only if the economy not the market if the economy needs that I think they will be providing more support and I think they kind of make would certainly be a you is that or for it to carry through whatever uncertainty the trump administration has created so my expectation is they're probably going to happen in September and it probably cut not over and and perhaps one more time in December again. there's enough momentum but I've been providing that important barman but there's no inflation is probably the right thing to do what is the catalyst for international improvement relative to standard and poor's five hundred is it a financial earnings based revenue growth catalyst reserve all political. I think it is the ad the moment it is all political it is made to our state the brexit it's all these things that are dominating the conversation I think that there is the possibility of international companies and that's in emerging markets is is good enough it's just that in the current context nobody wants to buy any of these because I have tomorrow they could be from what people are on the other hand if you have a five ten year investment horizon this may be the opportunity that you had been waiting for for quite sometime that's Christian Mamani chief investment.
"amani" Discussed on KNSS
"We're talking with Brian Pinna Amani, and Brian is a president of the testimony, physical therapy and wellness center. And I just think it's a great great place that you have there in Pittsburg Kansas and unique for a town that size that we've been talking about sports injuries. We could spend the whole show talking about sports injuries. You know that Brian. I mean, they're just people get hurt. And you know, you see a lot of different things. I want to ask you a couple of specific things before we move onto other kinds of treatments. One how about stem cells have you seen any, but he come back to you or anybody in Europe in your field of care that has benefit. It'd from stem cells we're starting to see a little bit more of that. I actually had a spinal cord injury a couple of years ago that he actually went over to Germany and hadn't done and it really helped him remarkably. He's able to you know, he was a paraplegic, and he was able to benefit from the stem cells. And now he's using the Walker most of the time. Now, he's gotta go out long distances he'll still get in his wheelchair. But if you see him at a restaurant, he's getting out of his car using the Walker to eat at a restaurant and doing that. So I I've seen some good stuff there. And we're starting to see some more stem cell things with you know, knees and shoulders as well. Right. Yeah. I think that's kind of the new thing that people are looking at and maybe trying I. And then as far as the kinds of sports injuries that you see if you made a list of your top five Bryant. What would they be? Probably top five sports injuries that we're seeing are ACL's and shoulders either rotator cuff for labor terrorists through sports injuries. Right. We see a lot of those. And those are basically a lot of them are season specific, obviously. So you know, when you start getting into different seasons of sports you'll start to see an increase or an uptick in a sales during football season might have a few during basketball season. And we typically would see more female athletes during basketball season suffering ACO injury through the running in the jumping aspect from their their ball. And I, and I would I attribute that to a lot of the female athletes have a wider hip, hip girdle, which puts their knees and avowed stress or not me position. When they come to jump down on that stresses that ACL so jump training for a younger, pre pubescent or teenage female. Is very critical to help them. Protect those knees. And those jumping sports Brian one of the things the doctor Galician I talked about during the break is programs to get our seniors moving. We're seeing a nationwide trend of a lot of the I guess the database and a lot of the customer base that Dr Galicia has been is a little older of a demographic do you at what you do, of course in Pittsburgh. Do you have classes and programs that are specifically focused on our seniors to get them move to talk to us a bit about that. You bet we have we have an age well program at our wellness center. And we we have our oldest patient and that I think is actually ninety eight years old ninety eight in the last year. So we do we have a very strong falling with our age well classes here, and we also have an age world class. That's in our we have a small hydro works therapy pool that the whole bottoms a treadmill. So our patients or clients can walk out on it dry, and we can lower them down and you got from zero to six feet. So we we've really seen a lot of interest in this age well program that we have for older adults. And then we also have some men's classes that are basically all these men are taking their typically over fifty and we focus a lot on functional movement flexibility and balance and those are keys to functional movement is critical. You can't stand up and sit down or you can't transition with the recip. Prokop gait pattern up and down. A set of stairs. You've got some weakness in your in your lower extremity, and that's gonna translate into issues down the road with mobility and falls. So we put a big focus on functional movement because if your body's not functioning in a good capacity that you're just you're just going to lose that mobility and lose that strength over time. Oh, boy, I emphasize that a lot because people get hurt. And then they have a hard time coming back from it. No matter what the injury is especially if they're older and absolute if they wind up in a nursing home, Brian it's crazy. But there's so much more cost involved in a person who is not ambulatory let let's say you're in bed. Now, you take more nursing care. You know, somebody's gotta come and get that person to go to the bathroom. They can't get up by themselves. That is a real tragedy in escalates the cost of the care. And then at the lift if they are in a position where they have to have somebody feed them or they've had a stroke or something like that. Then the cost goes up even more. How do you how do you manage stroke? Do you see those patients in your clinic? We we see a few not so many. And you know, we used to see him a lot during the October November time frame when you know, I would attributed to bear metric pressure change or system changes because it always seemed to focus on that late fall type of timeframe, and we're seeing we, you know, we haven't seen a lot of stroke patients over the last couple years, which is a good thing. And that might be due to some of the medications that they're getting them on real quickly after they noticed that they're having a stroke, and I think that's helped combat some of the severity of the strokes that we used to see there again, you know, we try to get them as functional as possible and using those limbs and making sure that their mobility is there. Yeah. Yeah. And if somebody just has a routine surgery, let's say knee replacement. Oh my gosh. You know, we've got patients Brian who've had both knees replaced both hits replaced and shoulder surgery. No kidding. I mean, like I'm looking at every joint. Man. Yeah. There they are. And so they're walking around just like normal and Ryder, you can ask them. Oh, how did how did all this happen? And the answer is always. Well, you know, I was right knee, and it was a left knee. And then I hurt my hip and then just wore out my other hip and zoom zoom. I went and got all this stuff done. But you know, what I'm out there playing golf. So I'm happy as a clam. And if they had another one, they always say, a do it again, you know, if something goes wrong, I'll do it again. But along the way what I find is that those people have had good physical therapy. They didn't just go home and go okay now start running tomorrow in this brand new knee. How how do you deal with that? Well, we try educate the people on their activity level their function. But you know, one of the things that I've looked at over the years with you we've seen such an uptick in joint replacements due to degeneration, and you know, the aging process or a previous injury. Like, a, you know, a former ACL tear when they were younger with the new, and, you know, and when you look at these aspects of total joint replacements, and you think about degeneration, I kind of started a little bit deeper from Arina wonder, you know, what what could be causing some of that, you know, if it's really an active person and one of the things that we try to talk to our patients about is their nutrition as well. Yes. Because a lot of our diets and the American diet is very acidic. And one of the things that I, you know, I wrack my brain around if we can if we talked our patients as they're doing rehabilitation about you know, what they're eating and how do you find that their diets are so acidic that some of that acidity could be. Leaching calcium from their bones over time. So we try to talk to them about you know, alkaline and vegetables, and and you know, even alkaline water to help maintain that proper ph within their systems. So that in in the event that that acidic diet that they've been on which is typically our diets here, and with all the pops and all the things that we do that can have an effect over time. So, you know, we're trying to educate our patients on not just what they're coming in for which is, you know, maybe a total near total hip, but also some other underlying factors that they may not think about and then trying to get them to rethink their process a little bit and incorporate some minor lifestyle changes, it can't be major. But if we can just put a couple of thoughts in their head about, hey, you might want to look at this a little bit, you know, and change this little thing. Maybe drink a little bit less pop. You know, whatever whatever their vice might be maybe incorporate some more fruits and vegetables into that. Because just a little bit of help can make them feel so much better and help them kind of motivate to change maybe one or two behaviors that down the road could really save them. A lot of time in rehab or in the hospital. How about this? Do you have a program Brian for people who feel like they're overweight? They come in and say, hey, Brian, get me in shape, you know, or have your team get me in shape? How would you go about that? Would you get nutritional counseling would you put them on a gradual program that gets them up to a higher level of exercise? Would you count their calories? Would you use Fitbit or something like that to see what they were doing when they weren't with you? I mean, I think that's a big challenge to in today's world, you know, as probably the most common thing that people say, I gotta change my way. Sure. Well, and that's you know, when you look at New Year's resolutions, which is that time of year the top two resolutions year in year out or one lose weight and exercise more. So when we have people that come in and request that, you know, we we try to set them up with one of our personal trainers to have, you know, just to sit down conversation of what their goals, are you know, where they are. Because the additional weight didn't come on. You know overnight. And you know, I've always thought that it's we gain about five pounds a year and over a decade that's additional fifty pounds that we get. And then you just keep kind of, you know, gaining weight little by little you don't notice it until you know, ten years down the road, you've got that extra fifty pounds. So we try to really personalized what that client is looking for with a program because it can't be something that they're not gonna do. We can't put him on a two hour workout when they only have thirty minutes a day to devote to it..

Bardy we're talking about a prison strike happening in multiple places across the United States in cross the United States. Excuse me, incarcerated people asking for improvements in their living and working conditions. This is all in the run up to the forty. Seventh anniversary of the Attica prison uprising. That was one of the bloodiest in American history. I'm joined today by Amani Sawari. She is a prison strike organizer and spokesperson for jailhouse lawyers, speak. And we've got a lot of comments already coming in here on Facebook. Chris mcphail says, how does a prisoner strike? If you're in prison, you have no rights. And Johnny Williams says I, for one, could not care less if they strike food or otherwise. Don't break the law and you never have to worry about it. I want to bring in another voice here.

So you heard what a money said before we took the break about the low if not non-existent, pay that inmates get while doing work while incarcerated and and why she wants to see that change and the and the inmates who were striking you serve time. What is your view on this? Well, I think the issue of inmate wages is actually very murky, and I think it's that way on purpose. There are some laws on the books, federal statutes that require that people in prison who are working, get paid to prevailing wage and limit the amount of money that can be taken out for room or board or victims compensation fund at cetera. It's not clear because we can't file freedom of information act requests on these private companies. It's not clear if they're actually paying that prevailing wage. And then if the state is taking out too much or how much the state is taking out. So for me, it's a murky issue. I did not work when I was in prison for a private company that contracted for inmate labor, I worked, I guess you would say for the state I worked directly for the prison in the state of Connecticut was the entity that paid me seventy five cents a day to start, and then a dollar seventy five a day in the later period of my incarceration. And so how did you feel about that seventy five cents? I mean, it sounds like it's it is a pittance it is. And I mean even on the outside, what can you really get for seventy five cents anywhere an knowing that prison prices on the commissary like Monty, said phone calls are much higher, which is, you know, inherently unfair in itself. It makes it hard to survive the issue though for me with prison labor was that it was. It was the wages are insufficient. What it did do for me, sustain me psychologically socially and physically because I was able to get out of an eight by ten cell and walk around like a human being on in in a more open space. I also was able to, again, get out of that cell. This may sound, you know, unseemly, but I was able to use the bathroom with a closed door. I was able to use a toilet behind a closed door in a private setting, which is not possible in a cell where you are using a toilet in front of your cellmates and also staff. So there are minor perks that seem like they are insignificant people who are on the outside, but mean the world to someone who's inside. So for me, if I were to hear that someone was trying to either eliminate my work opportunities or something like that. Well, I was in prison. I would have gone into a full blown panic because the only grass by hat on humanity was going to that workspace every day. Shelter for second. I'm sorry to interrupt you, but I don't hear a money or any of her Philo advocates calling for a reduction in that work, but just an in an increase in pay..
