California governor provides update on coronavirus

"Fourteen I'm hearing of the USS mercy and they just arrived here at what we refer to as the state operations center where I'm currently filming this Facebook live the team is not only simple here they've assembled the USS mercy it's on its way to Los Angeles and will be arriving this Friday and as early as this weekend it will be available to pick up individuals that we deem prioritize an appropriate to be taken care of and supported on the chip by just got to say it's a reminder when you meet these young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are U. S. navy when you meet highs and young men and women how extraordinarily blessed we are the U. S. navy and those that are working to get the USS mercy here in California I have done a remarkable job to turn around a very short period of time eleven hundred crew on that ship and we're now in the process of determining exactly which type of decompression strategies that will work and what I mean by that is to decompress the rest of the system by providing support on board that ship so that we can ultimately advance our protocols and procedures to get people in more appropriate care and more appropriate settings and so that's the purpose of the conversation we just had the conversations that are occurring quite literally in real time behind me but we're very very enthusiastic that that ship will be coming apart as early as this Friday accordingly we advanced a number of actions today particularly on the issue of prisons and the state I did an executive order today as it relates to the intake processing both at C. D. C. R. I. California state correction system and DJ J. R. juvenile division in order to address the legitimate anxieties and concerns related to prisoners and to make sure that we have our procedures and protocols in place to protect staff as well as inmates from covert nineteen as you know we have one official tested positive inmate we have five staff members currently we are going to restrict the intake process in the system and we are putting together new a protocols and procedures and throughout that system thirty five presence to make sure that we are isolated people were not mixing our prison populations as we tend to do transfers and the like on a typical basis so the executive order a reinforced the guidelines or procedures and protocols that were now advancing both for DJJ and C. C. R. in addition to that something's very familiar to me and weekly basis I review personally the recommendations of our parole board for people that are eligible for parole in each and every circumstance when people are made eligible to go through a very formal process of interviews and reviews that's done in person because of the nature of this virus the nature of this moment we're going to be changing procedures and protocols and in the executive order we lay out a strategy to begin the process of doing a video conferences this would be a temporary advancement but under the circumstances in terms of our isolation strategies in order to continue the processing of people that are eligible for parole in the encouragement to make sure that that process happens the scale it's been happening in the past we think it's appropriate to move forward with those teleconferences in that executive order lays out strategies to do just that and so those orders will be in effect the artifact media at Lee and the protocols the procedures are in effect in real time and we could talk more about that in the coming days as we look not just to the state prison population but the county jail population as well in addition to that we had remarkable Dave conversations with the army corps of engineers they are now stationed just right outside our stock here at the emergency operation centers we have three divisions throughout the state of California and they've been working with our state leadership National Guard others within our respective organizations to cite through a survey process the appropriate locations for potential support of army corps in addition to sites that we have identified through our federal medical program that we announced yesterday and the fact that we have two sides coming up one in riverside in Santa Clara we're looking additional sites in ways that the army corps can complement the work to get those sites fully operational insights convention facilities that's facilities large and small up and down the state fairgrounds and the like but we went through more detailed protocols and sharing expectations so that we can lay out exactly our expectations moving forward the army corps engineers moves quickly and we're very enthusiastic that that partnership is really taking shape over the course of last week and been advanced of the course last few hours in more meaningful ways edition that we had a wonderful news Sir Richard Branson virgin now partnering as Tim cook did Ilan musk at Tesla and SpaceX just another individual that stepped up virgin stepping up bring in a seven forty seven into the bay area and Oakland and we worked on the joysticks related to that for significant enhancement of personal protective gear will have more details on that the next day or two just another point of emphasis in other example an indication of people that are stepping up in a relic ways bringing that from Asia into the bay area to help support our efforts to help support one of the largest hospital systems Kaiser in that process we had the tragic loss of a lot a young life a teenager in Lancaster California which underscores the enormity of the challenge in front of us this health crisis and how it could impact anybody and everybody and I know it's sobering when you read the headlines so have I said a child but to be more precise a teenager a lost our lives and we are doing the investigation trying to understand more about exactly what occurred but covert related tragic loss of life as of ten AM this morning we've lost forty lives in the state of California related to covet nineteen we have lost over twenty one hundred or rather we have twenty one hundred positives state California twenty one hundred and two which is seventeen point five percent higher than the previous day again that's at ten AM number those numbers change in real time but a seventeen and a half percent increase and now a loss of a young person's life I want to just make a point Tampa size this and extend my heartfelt sympathies to the family and the community that have lost their loved one but also make this point young people can and will be impacted by this virus in fact young people disproportionately are the ones testing positive in the state of California fifty percent of the two thousand one hundred and two individuals that have tested positive fifty percent are between the age of eighteen and forty nine I'll repeat that half of those that have tested positive to date in the state of California eighteen to forty nine years old this disease impacts everybody the question is the acuity and the hospitalization rate that yes does skew on the side of older populations but with this tragic now death it is a reminder to everybody to take this seriously it's a health crisis it needs to be met first and foremost head on as such and that's why it is incumbent upon all Californians to continue to take our stay at home order seriously to continue to do the kind of social distancing that common sense dictates and heed the warnings we advanced yesterday to stay out of settings like beaches and parks where you're coming into close contact with others practice social distancing and we had to step up our enforcement yesterday as it relates to shut down those parking facilities a consequence to reinforce and remind people the series of moments but what more evidence do you need of a loss of a young person's life and so I just cannot impress upon the young people out there more the seriousness of this moment and how critical they are totally getting us on the other side by practicing that social distancing that we all are custom hearing but not in every case advancing individually by the way for those that are curious twenty six percent of individuals fifty to sixty four are represented in the twenty one hundred and two individuals that have been tested positive twenty three percent of all the other cases are represented in individual site north of sixty five years old hospitalization rates tend to skew higher and those cohorts but the number of positives again remains half eighteen to forty nine so broad strokes that's been up most of the day as it relates to operationalize in a lot of the work that we've been talking about the last number of days I had a number of conversations with governors across the country about protocols and procedures to better work collaborative Lee on procurement strategies we actually are lining up in linking together our procurement teams with other states to make sure that we're not competing with one another and we're making sure we are price conscience and dealing with the issue of price gouging up comparing best practices with state attorney generals are not just the work that the federal government's doing William Barr and others that we were pleased to hear announced yesterday so those are good conversations in those conversations we hope will be made real in terms of organizing a more deliberate and strategic way the procurement of the hundreds of millions of individual items that we need to procure and shields and gloves and gowns and coveralls and face masks and swabs and the like but we have testing numbers the testing has significantly increased across this country but also in the state of California tomorrow will be laid out the new numbers that we have received that will show a significant jump in the numbers we made public as we brought together all of these one off collection sites and all of the hospitals research universities that are participating as well as the private labs and will have a new process to collect those numbers in real time I had to make until like I think more comfort in numbers on the scale of testing is still not close to where we need to be we still need more swabs we still need more reagents these aren't extraction kits but we are seeing higher throughput and we're seeing new technologies coming up there were testing work with the FDA trump administration to get all the market one of his meeting with folks today that have a forty five minute test because the issue now is not just swabs in our extraction reagents it's about turning around the tests which are in some cases taking days and days and days some cases many of seven eight nine days and so we're gonna have to address the timeliness of the diagnostic and the test results as well again yeah because they have to iterate in this space as we moved from just public labs to those commercial quest and lab core now to needing specimen sample swabs in the media associated with that to now making sure we turn around the SAT test and a much quicker time but more on that tomorrow we also in closing I've done a lot on the ventilator side of things I mentioned yesterday the heroic work of Ilan musk came through on his promise to deliver over one thousand ventilators and that was announced yesterday we have brought in ourselves we just got another one thousand and ten ventilators are from the private sector working with managing others to convert that cash of five hundred fourteen ventilators that we had to refurbish them and to get them fully operational we have received from the federal government a no direct ventilators from the national stockpile Los Angeles county did receive one hundred and seventy and they have a unique relationship to the national stockpile but that's all we received within

"Monday among you get going. I, I feel good. I did everything good. I'm so I'm proud of myself as a daddy did as much as I could. I don't know why like Jerry Lewis is morning, but his Monday, I want you to get a positive and get up an atom in the most positive of ways anti-pope will join us renown, New Jersey attorney and legal analyst, and we're gonna talk about how about the house begins hearings on this Muller report on my God, they won't stop with his John dean John dean from Watergate from Watergate is like now. He's night, testified kidding me. Just stop this particular Sean Spicer. We'll get into it as well. And we'll talk about the twenty twenty elections a former White House press secretary joins and a Milo Yannopoulos. Former senior. Breitbart, author of the book dangerous and the grand marshal of the upcoming straight pride parade. Yes, straight people. You heterosexuals you crazy people. I don't know how you live. You let you do. Apparently, there's going to be like a heterosexual parade. It Boston, you can't make it up. I'm tired of telling I opened the six o'clock hour and you could always go back and podcast. But it's for a lot of folks are traveling at six to get to work by seven, so they hit us for about a half an hour forty five minutes. And we talked about the political correctness of the day, when I put some things on my Twitter feed JR at your Z, Joe Piscopo that were politically, correct. You know, meet doing groups Piscopo in the middle of commercials, you know, and oh my gosh. You can't talk that, then we did the wrapping the big everything was so sensitive. It's so crazy. They, they always have to tell us that we're, we're back. Bad were wrong and you know, you're racist. Oh police. Can we just be likely like to do this, on the show here just to have a little a little bit of fun? So that's what we're trying to do this morning. And that's all we had the privilege of being on with Fox News with Neil Cavuto on Saturday morning, we had fun. We know what we had some fun. It's okay to have fun. You'll live a little bit. You talk about the news. We talked about Alec Baldwin leading Saturday Night, Live, who's gonna come in who's going to replace him. And I said that she'd do Spanish Donald Trump. You know, in, in celebration of the president's success on the tariffs, you know, go. You, you can have some fun with it. Everybody's gotta just relaxing little bit. My goodness gracious. We're getting a little too tight, but you know what was nice to see. I saw Democrats and Republicans at ground zero and led by congressman Peter King. We're doing a great job down there for the victim's compensation fund. A lot of people hurt after nine eleven from breathing in that air. I remember distinctly too and that went down I went down. And I told you this before I was there. I guess a month or so later couple months, maybe a couple of months, six weeks. Right. And then we would down went down. They just to pay respects to the workers after nine eleven of way back then. And you couldn't even breathe you. I remember to state you go, right? Am I? Right. You went around that area. And you just had to catch your breath. It was so toxic toxic. And they said, no, no worries no worries. Now since then people have died since then that weren't killed initially because of the air. So now there's a victim compensation fund that is running out, and it's nice to see Peter King leading the charge in this regard. Dan? Donovan was on top of this to former congressman, but then I saw I saw a, oh, see in two and Jerrold Nadler down there. And they first of all, I applaud them for joining with normal politicians normal people who care about New Yorkers. But I have to tell you because. The so negative all the time, because it's so vicious and they're so not objective and just whining and complaining about everything when I saw see talking about something that everybody in America should be concerned about people getting hurt from nine eleven because they act like it's just a New York problem in Washington. And when it's not when people from all around the world were killed in that terror attack. And I saw did you see I well, it just looked and Jerrold Nadler Jerrold Nadler up there and any talking in defensive end. It just look weird. When these people stepped up and tried to do something and AOL see in the Puerto Rican day parade. I said now she going to what she gonna complain about now. Complain about now and it's the danger of these politicians. And I think the Democratic Party all they do is wine. Complain and moan the baby boomers, they kind of do. All they do is am I. Right. So when I saw it was shocking to me to see Jerrold Nadler, say something that actually cared about the constituents in his district in lower Manhattan. You know where the station I was very, very surprised. But I'll tell you it was good news that they all join together, and I would love to see Democrats step up and, and, and talk commonsense issues. And I think they do, but we never hear it and because they lot of commonsense Democrats come on this show and they and we chat with them. So it was right. Frankie Fibro seal see down, you'll see down there at ground zero. It was just weird because she's always always vicious and complaining about something about the president or how bad we are as a country so that she stuck up for something that was worthy was refreshing. Yeah. I was glad to see and along with all the all the elected. Fficials in both parties that, that worked so hard to to get this this this benefit extended in perpetuity. And I was surprised when I when I posted this article on my Facebook page, how many people were opposed to making this, this permanent, and these are a lot of New York and New Jersey people saying, oh, you know, this is just going to be another permanent government program that people can scam. I disagree. I think that when it comes to the, the nine eleven victims compensation fund, you see how many people have gotten sick after working at ground zero. This is absolutely something that should be a priority for congress and kudos to Joe Borelli who led that rally the other day to carry on Maloney. Peter King, and everybody who is the mayor down there at the event. No. Of course not. Why, why? Why would he be why would it be too? Busy running for president. In a row show for the Puerto Rican parade. And it is ninety seven now compensate. He's like he's like you know what was the scene in animal has zero point zero? That's. He didn't register. All he has not registered at all. Well. Ultimately wise. That was correct. Yeah, ultimately, it was a poll of six hundred people. Right. So I if you get the nobody really knows who he is an Iowa at this point. It's still early as you're going to hear me say now for the next six months polls are absolutely meaningless didn't Nicole Meli attack is take a shot at him. There's a picture of the Blasios with his wife. They're standing in a in front of a banner in Waterloo, Iowa, and Nicole takas, took a shot at the mayor saying, there are a just a little bit fewer homeless people in the city than there are in the entire population of Waterloo, Iowa. Man. A look at his Chuck Schumer wants the food and Drug administration to review the chemicals in sunscreens wonderful, wonderful. That's great. I'm glad our senior Senator is has his finger on the pulse of the problems that New Yorkers are really concerned about, you know, everywhere. I went this weekend. I thirty forty check must ask. Me about all the health hazards sons, I should've called him. I was buying compensation yesterday. When I when I see that as the Monday headline from the truck Schumer's weekly press conference, all I can think is things are actually pretty good in the world. Because if that's the biggest thing that Chuck Schumer can have to complain about then then. That's okay. We're, we're doing if you listening outside the, the New York Democrat abroad attention to the issue of standing next to the sunbathers in Bryant park. They were happy about that. The sunlight away. Great of I got, by the way, by the way. Geraldo Rivera, just went after him on Twitter, Chuck Schumer Sunday, tree. Yes. Saying you all you do is bitch, and moan about the president. But you, you have done nothing to help the problems down in Mexico and the people, the illegals crossing over a over the border, you all you're doing is complaining, and yet, you're not coming up with any idea. Thank you. And I feel like that's Cuomo. And they said, what about the mayor not being here? And they said, well, we it's about who's here and Andrew Cuomo. I keep seeing Mary, Andrew. Governor cuomo. And he adeptly kinda step aside, set the issue, not to get into it with me to Blasi oh, and you didn't need another issue. I guess too, you have to go after the Blasi about. But then then they go it's Maria. The hurricane Maria Maria. Like we didn't give any week and it's the record is, we gave billions of dollars to Puerto Rico, and the army corps engineers did a great job going down to fact that the matter is what they don't touch on. And you hear peripherally but it's the corruption the corruption in the government down there that never got the money to the people. You couldn't have given more money yet the youth. They once they hold onto something that narrative. And when the governor governor Cuomo said, oh, it's Maria. We'd, why don't why don't you go down there and try to restructure the government for grandma, and then the army corps engineers, and correct me if I'm wrong Frankie was down there. Right. And they did a pretty good job, but it's impossible to work around the corruption in the government in Puerto Rico, call me and tell me that I'm wrong. But I think that has been part of the part of the problem. Yes, it's a problem because it's an island and it was tough getting supplies there. But when they say it was the same thing happened with when they went after George Bush for Katrina in a normal. Liens, and they said, oh, he was incentive boy, they just they went on that narrative, and may even if an inkling of it was true. It's not right. But the mayor was, oh, the mayor was the guy in New Orleans, who told everybody don't move don't leave, don't listen to the government. And yet they always blame you won't people yet that narrative a whole, you know what that narrative becomes it becomes history. They write it as history. And that's why some of these members of the press our enemy of the people because they make up the fake news, the president's not wrong like that. You just want. Just give us the facts that's all work together on. But boy, they, you put a false narrative out there. It's amazing how it becomes the fact that we had to follow. Hey, Franken about Milo coming on the show a Milo Yiannopoulos coming on the show. So he got banned by Twitter. Correct. Oh, yeah. A while ago. Yeah. He's been banned by everybody on and off. But he's now he's banned again. No, no. He's been banned. He's been banned for pretty consistently because he made he. Made jokes of comparing that Saturday Night Live actress to a monkey, and she was African American and then and then and James woods now. I I don't see his tweets anymore. He he got banned as well..

"Parents talk about when I was younger. It's like, right. Mom, dad. Holy cow. Trump's speech holding around if I can do that speech. Screw up never press comment. Fantastic by Brigitte. Thank you manage phone jewelry. I gotcha. So I know what you're saying. Basically, you know, the nudging it starts with this. And it goes to this starts with isn't it goes to this? And that's the Democrats do maybe he will. Maybe he will you'll cracks me up. You have a whole bunch of phone call again, Bob, you have a whole bunch of these never Trumpers or rhinos. They always said Trump's not a Republican. He's not a real conservative. You get, you know, morons like Jeff flake and others that they claim he's not there's nobody that is a that is putting better judges in positions federal judges circuit court judges. The biggest pro-life president biggest pro Israel, president the the guys all over it. He is he is a cultural phenomenon. But since he doesn't come from DC and the establishment, they they don't want him to even he I guess he doesn't compare in that aspect not near minds. The guy is a hard core conservative when it comes to that. Pragmatic conservative. Anyway. So listen to this Democrats are so scared that the president might declare probably ten days, whatever it is an emergency. And we'd we've gone over this. He doesn't even have to declare an emergency. He actually according to the Congressional Research Service. He has the power to take. It's like thirteen point seven billion dollars. That's already earmarked for fixing things. He could have the army corps engineer take that money and say, I direct you to stop and block drug corridors on the border, and they build roads lighting, walls, fences, whatever you wanna call they build it all he doesn't even ask congress. He doesn't have you declared emergency. But if he wants to declare an emergency. In the Democrats originally said, well, he wouldn't be able to do that. We'd sue them. We'd there's he can't do whatever. Well, if that's the case while of a sudden are Democrats led by democratic Senator from New Mexico, Tom udall, creating legislation to stop Trump from using funds from the army corps engineers, civil work funds and military construction funding. The Bill would literally prevent funds designated for critical military construction and disastrous bounce from being used to build the wall. If he declares an emergency. It's called the raider act restrictions against illegitimate decorations for emergency re appropriations act. That I'm assuming now no lawyer, but I'm assuming that will get tossed aside by the courts because presidents. I mean, how many times did he said they they've done this like seventy something times since nineteen seventy six and like fifty something we're still actually still happening is declared emergencies, but if president didn't have the power to do this. Why would they actually create legislation to stop him? They're very very very nervous. Eight eight zero eight zero five six seven eight much more coming up about about this.

"John. Well, thank you skip. It's great to be here. Well, John, I know you're a Vietnam vet why don't you start out by telling us about your time in service. Late in the Vietnam war and the draft had gone to a lottery system, and I was confronted with being drafted. So I joined the air force, and they trained me to be aircrew life support specialist so early December nineteen seventy two I had orders to Huda Paul airfield in Thailand that was one of seven basis the largest of the seven basis that the US operated, and I was the forward operating base for the strategic air command. So maybe fifty five fifty to fifty five Casey wants thirty fives and the expeditionary force there and on the eighteenth of December, president Nixon and Henry Kissinger were frustrated with the negotiations with the North Vietnamese the president wanted to get disentangled from Vietnam. But the POW's were an issue so on the eighteenth of December he ordered sack to go after military targets, and so for eleven days, the b fifty two's from Guam and the b fifty two's for. Mood apol- founded those military targets and the North Vietnamese apparently got the message because they were willing to negotiate an early in seventy three the POW's were released, and then the Americans disengaged and basically went home from Vietnam. Wow. You were over there. During that timeframe that you know that always interests me because much of the war most of the war. I mean, I watched it on television. But you know, every night because I was in high school when you were over there in Vietnam. So it's always been very interesting to me. You didn't want to be a ground Pounder working for Colonel Denny Gillam over there. My older brother had been in the air force. And he got treated pretty well. And so I thought maybe that was the way I wanted to go, and I was very pleased to be associated with such big airplanes. And see what they could accomplish. Oh, yeah. Yeah. They are definitely fascinating. All right now, John when I look through your your book here, the book is titled war bird factory by John Fredriksen. John. Why don't you just tell us the premise of your book here? Well, I think most stories agree the United States contribution to the material effort of World War Two was Keita defeating the fascist powers that had arisen in Japan and Germany and Italy. And so even our military played a great role. It was the folks working in industry that created the tanks and airplanes and the ships and the ammunition in the food and everything necessary to defeat the enemy. So it's like the arsenal of democracy that wasn't just catch all that actually happened during FDR the president in the nineteen thirties. I made a speech in one thousand nine hundred forty calling upon the nation to Europe up industry Americans were not interested in in going to war in Europe. They're not interested in going to war and Japan. The memories of World War One we're still fresh, and it wasn't until the Pearl Harbor attack. Where the population really got energize and wanted to take some revenge. But in that speech SDR ask for fifty thousand warplanes per year. Yeah. Part of that was to supply our allies France before it fell in England was was more material. And so a committee was formed, and they started to matter, and they said, well, if you want fifty thousand airplanes year, you're gonna have to build Randy factories, and you're going to have to expand existing factories and the approach was what's it called between the mountains? They wanted to factories west of the Appalachians and east of the Rockies. The concern was that airplane factories on the coast for who either attack or invasion, and so they set about to build an Omaha was a Martin plant and the Boeing plant in Wichita was expanded in Douglas had operations in Tulsa, Oklahoma city. And then a company called North American was given to big plants government built to operate. One of them was invalid and the other one was in Kansas City. Their goal was to spread these plants out so many different cities. So they wouldn't overwhelm the infrastructure in any one city, this is marine vet skip Coralline frontlines of freedom. And we're discussing with air force senior Master Sergeant. John Fredriksen about his book Warbirds factory. Now, John fifty thousand a year certainly that didn't happen right away. Did it? I mean, do we have to gear up for that? Yeah. We sure did Eric in the military had become very anemic in the nineteen thirties. Army was small the navy was small and the air force was especially small army. Air corps was renamed the army air forces in nineteen forty two. So I'll use that term. But one of the premier companies of the many companies in America that rose to the occasion was called North American aviation, and they were affiliated with General Motors, and they built forty thousand airplanes during the course of the war, which was more than any other American companies, and they came on three types the trainer plane was called eighteen six and a Texan physically that it was built at the Dallas plant the b twenty five medium bombers somewhere built in California. But to search or a six thousand six hundred and eight of them were built at the Kansas City plant, and then everybody's favorite airplane was the p fifty one Mustang which could escort the heavy bombers from England to Berlin. Engage and destroy the loop also and then turn around and fly back to England. So these three types airplanes still exist and still fly. If you go up to an airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin in the summer, you'll see examples of all three and they're referred to as the Warbirds. And so having worked at Boeing for many decades. I was interested in the factory and how these airplanes got built. So that's why I call the book Warburg factory. Dallas very interesting book. Anyone who's interested in World War Two at all? I would really highly recommend you get this book, you know, being a marine. I love books with lots of pictures. I mean, I can even read you know, and read small words, but this book is just incredible. I really enjoyed it. And I learned a lot. Now, you're saying North American aviation built over forty thousand airplanes during the whole war. So what was the average output per month? Once they got up and running. Well, the goal of Kansas City talk a little bit, but factories off because I think that story is quite interesting. What's the goal that plant was get three hundred b twenty five's built reliably every month? But it was a greenfield in December of forty. It was one of the sites that the committee recommended so North American gentlemen by name. A Dutch kindle burger got a plane flew out there and he stood in the middle of a seventy five acre L salsa field. Any drafted a two sentence telegram when he says, I have inspected the Fairfax site, and it is okay. Stop airfield small but suitable for immediate needs improvement. Stop. The army corps engineers contracting with private construction companies. They broke ground in March of forty one. And amazingly they had the first airplane in the factory completed just after the Pearl Harbor attack in December of forty one. Oh, wow. And so the attributes of the plant itself was it was big. It was just under twenty nine acres. And plus the adjacent parking ramps in separate building on the same airfield made out of wood because of a metal shortage in nineteen forty two that was a modification center and the factory was built out of metal. It had no windows. So they could operate in a blackout condition, but it had a strange feature for that era was air conditioned, man. The purpose of the air conditioning was to keep the metal parts at the same temperature. So they would not expand or contract the new fit together properly. Oh, wow. I bet the the workers their loved that feature especially in Kansas City because it's cold in the winter and hot in the summer. Absolutely. Yeah. That was fantastic. Well, John there's clearly more to talk about concerning your book Warburg factory. And when we come back. I also wanna talk about the be twenty-five itself and the p fifty one all the planes that they actually did. It's just an incredible story with John Fredriksen. John will stay with us till next segment. This is marine vet skip Corey on frontlines of freedom. And now it's time for some good old fashioned military marksmanship training. Folks, this is our groundhog special show, and if the groundhog sees his shadow, then we've got six more weeks of winter your.

"Doing what she's doing. And ultimately, I think I've set the table very nicely. I think people understand they understand Peter. They didn't know what was going on the southern border. Now, they know they had no idea the amount of crime the amount of drugs the amount of human trafficking, which can be stopped with a proper system. Have set the table. I've set the stage for doing what I'm going to do. Brilliant. Yeah, I'm going to wait till the fifteenth. I think it's a waste of time. Yeah. He's gonna wait because he's gonna talk about it at the state of the union. At least he's being honest. And he did exactly what he was going to do that the whole government shutdown. I mean, if listen if the Democrats came to the table and accept that his deal, I think you would have done it Dacca TPS three year extensions for the wall. He would have done. It Nancy Pelosi said there's no way we're going to do just a three year temporary deck protection for a permanent wall that that's where her mind is if she even has mind left, so the president the whole point of the shutdown was to bring the rest of the country that wasn't paying attention. In the loop. Bring them in the loop. And let them know exactly. What's happening? And it was a brilliant play. Trump now considering that Trump may have broken your heart last week or two weeks ago, whenever it was when he said he was going to reopen the government we can Africo. Considering that that he said he was going to reopen. Any like, that's it. Mary Ann Coulter. I find extremely annoying Coulter. Got all mad. This is terrible. He's a wimp. This was all done strategically. I have learned to realize that there's a there's a plan. There's there's a method to the madness. And this was it. He made the country realize exactly what is going on to the southern border because the media doesn't like to report it, and they kind of had to force their hand to do it. He used them. He drove the narrative, which Republicans was the summer Republican drove the narrative. So he did that. And then he box the Democrats in said, all right? You want you're going to negotiate if you're open the government fine. Let's do it. And now, they're they're just they're basically committing bad faith negotiating they're not doing anything. The president is being honest. There was a story from politico. This is setting the table for the president declared national emergency. I don't even know if he's going to do that. Because again, the Congressional Research services said he can he can actually build the wall. Without congress does need. Their permission doesn't actually need to declare a national emergency. We've talked about this in the past. It's there again, there's thirteen point seven billion. That's been set aside for the army corps engineers, and the president can reallocate that to whatever the hell he wants their statutes whatever to stop drugs from being brought across the border, so wherever there's drug corridors he can build the wall legally doesn't have to go through congress. He's got thirteen point seven billion dollars to do it. You know, a part of me thinks again, I could be wrong here. Part of me thinks he knew all along. He was never going to get twenty five billion. He knew all along was going to get twenty wasn't gonna get five billion. What's going to get two billion? I believe from people that I've talked to. Then he realized he didn't need twenty five billion did need twenty. But I mean, even if he was near the big concrete shore. But if he wants to steal slats that the border patrol wants. I'm sure that's a hell of a lot cheaper. Then what was needed? So I think the president knew all along what he really needed and the thirteen point seven billion that is sitting out there. We'll be more than enough more than enough. Again. I could go over this times. A report was released from the Congressional Research Service. They do other nonpartisan do all the research for members of congress. And they said Trump has the authority to build the wall in the southern border. He has it. He could do it. No -mergency non needed. Statutes that say it we've gone over these in the past. Section twenty eight. Oh, eight. Authority of title, ten of the US code qualifies, a national emergency act. You have that it can be used the deploying fencing along the border appears to be the question first impression. That's what Congressional Research Service put out there. But they did to others that say that he could just do it on his own. Secretary of defense could provide support for counter, drug activities or activities to counter transnational organized crime. We know there's counter drug activities. We just got enough. No brought across the border to kill fifty seven million Americans. We know there's transnational organized crime with the cartel that's bringing it across. So he could actually build roads and fences lighting to block drug smuggling corridors across international boundaries. It's there section twenty eight o four titled ten US code section twenty two four says he could do it on his own doesn't need anybody else doesn't need congress. Nothing like that. At all. This report was written by three legislative attorneys, by the way. They could be subject to a legal challenge. But the Congressional Research Service report suggests the ability of such challenges to impede construction is uncertain. So you're the president. He said, you know, what? I'm ready to do what I wanna do didn't say urgency. I'm ready to do what I wanna do. You don't think he has his ducks in a row? In the media sitting there saying I don't wanna get too ahead of myself and get to excited, but the media Sydney are celebrating Nancy Pelosi is Trump reopened the government. How you can't underestimate the speaker. You can't underestimate this kid, maybe they underestimated Trump. Maybe they did. You want to hear the genius of Nancy Pelosi number. Let's play number two number two Nancy Pelosi talking to the media yesterday. We're going to pause it for certain things that she says Michael because it's really bad. Listen to this. Here we go. Do you agree with democratic caucus chair Jeffries when he says? Fencing should be on the table negotiation. I don't know that I did not hear his comments, but liar. You know, have you did you see the presentation yesterday? Henry clay, are of Texas is the only person actually, although all of that, California state and. And. That is. So she's Henry clay are a congressman from Texas. He's from a border state. So are you Nimrod you're in California? You have a wall around your whole member that is that we chill. I told you I put the Arctic. We talked about this, Laura. Luma a conservative journalists. She's kind of conservative activists. I would say she jumped the wall with a bunch of illegal aliens are get an answer blows property. Nancy had a wall. There is a moral. There's a wall between Tijuana and San Diego in California. It's a border state. Nancy, welcome the life. Let's continue and Texas. Represents the radio and surrounding areas there, and he showed the board many places on the border there. There are. River is a river and the and that and there's. Six hundred miles of something three hundred are normally insensitive. These three hundred miles of this. So the car Snapple. If the president wants to wall. Oh. So she suggests normally fencing which doesn't stop humans it stops tanks. That's why the Germans used that. They tried to stop light Arbor. Light armored tanks light armored vehicles can't get through. But people can literally walk right through it. Google Normandy fencing, you'll see it. It's right there. That's the time that that doesn't stop people. We show the pictures of a buses stopping in the middle of nowhere in Mexico, where there's no walls, sometimes there's only normally fencing and people they'll off the bus, and they walk right across the border and say asylum. We're here have kids they're going to America. And they're never seen again. Catch and release is there we can't hold a candle, and this this Nimrod actually says she's cool with normally fencing. I mean between that member last year. Maybe we just need to mow the grass at the border. That's way to protect the border mowing the grass. So what do you think about by my ideas about Trump's setting them all up? Did you not like what Trump did when he reopened the government? Now, you're okay with it. Maybe you can comment on all this stuff. Eight eight zero k and s t eight zero five six seventy nine some more, Nancy. I have some more other Democrats that actually are pushing for barriers not Normandy fencing, by the way, we have that coming up seven.

They're nonpartisan for they do all research for congress. Stop. It's and they said the president doesn't even need to ask congress for money to build the wall. He doesn't even have to declare an emergency national emergency. He could do it himself because it's his right is his power to build a wall to stop drug corridors second thing. I think you need to know the president Gordon to CNN has a plan in place now seven billion dollars from different departments. The Pentagon department departed offense almonds.

I was expecting, you know, this emergency shutdown and everything that that was going on that he was going to put troops on the border.

Do you think that it's it's it's game time, and he's not playing around anymore that he's learned throughout the past two years that now this is the way that I have to fight these guys because this is this is. The only thing that they understand going to understand when I put the army corps engineers down there starting to build the wall. Well, they're already doing surveys as we mentioned earlier on the board of the government is doing surveys on you know, of the land down there. And that's why we mentioned the private sector, the private owners down there or they've hired lawyers to fight the domain thing. And and we expected that all of them will all the private landowners will fight with few exceptions. But but the president's going to have to have a play if he puts the government if you opens the government again, and I don't know what that play will be. But it could be you guys think this is his Super Bowl. This is President Trump Super Bowl. He's in it to win it. I think he's the Cowboys the Cowboys on. I think is the Cowboys down by fourteen and he's trying to reset himself of what he did in the first half. And then there's a possibility. Let's put it this way. Everything is fluid in. And and if he says, okay, look, we're going to open the government, but I'm going to put an executive order out than the court start fighting it, and he continues at fight and all of a sudden baiter Ginsburg says I'm stepping down from the supreme court and all of this is long forgotten right things change. And so you don't know. And if he ends up getting a third supreme court Justice, you probably will have rattle the Democrats to their core, and you might have an energize Republican party. And he continues with the wall and things are forgotten as you move along about maybe the things that didn't go perfect in his administration, and then people become United again, it's very tough to tell the political landscape what it's going to be a month or two because you're trying to predict the behavior of this particular president and also everything else that comes along with with all of that eight six six ninety redeye. We'll.

I was expecting, you know, this emergency shutdown and everything that was going on that he was going to put troops on the border. He was going to do the do an emergency declaration to go and start building the wall.

"To three WGTK. It's the John McCullough show, folks. And guess what it's an open mouth addition of the McCullough show. What does that mean, it means that even though I'm sitting in the chair instead of John John is making sure that the four Matic's remain, constant that means you can call the show today to talk about what ever you want? That's what the open mouth edition of the program is all about so have at it. Eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five. I know that many of you time and time again, we'll wait for either John or a guest host like myself to open up a bunch of topic or content. Threads ending you just kind of jump in and glomming onto one and give your sentiment will you don't have to do that today. You may come totally out of left field. Just make sure it's a family friendly to talk about whatever it is you think's important today. And I know that earlier this week we had folks call to make comments about certain things we weren't talking about a while. I indulge a couple of them typically that kind of out of the blue content is reserved for today. So you don't have to feel skittish or squeamish about any topic. You may choose to discuss because it doesn't matter. You can talk about whatever you want on the open mouth edition of the John McCullough show. There's somebody who's out there talking about tranquility at the southern border. And here's some of the steel slabs of the president's been talking about right here. Yeah. That's Jim Acosta, you know, loud mouth. Jim Acosta thrown out of White House press conferences, had his White House press credentials revoked then sued to have them reinstated. That of course was nonsensical. The White House can exclude any one they choose to exclude a from a press conference of the White House had reporters from CNN up the wazoo. They didn't have to allow Mr. Kosta back. But they did. Nevertheless, this guy doesn't seem to have a sense of irony. And here's some of the steel slaps at the president's been talking about right here as you can see. Yes, you can't see through these slots to the other side of the US beco- border. Yeah. All that. And where is he he's at the southern border, and what's he looking at? He's looking at Mexico through a wall. But as we're walking along here, we're not seeing any kind of imminent danger. There are no migrants trying to rush toward this fence here in the mcallen, Texas area. Why do you think that is Jim? It's a matter of fact, there's some other businesses behind me along this highway. There's a gas station Burger King. And so on. No sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about as a matter of fact, it's pretty tranquil down here. And why do you think that is Jim CNN senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta? Now being torched all over the social media taking major heat after a critique of President Trump's border wall proposal, backfired big time CNN's Acosta mocked across social media this week for posting the video that was meant to downplay the president's claims of a border crisis. But ended up supporting the very claims the president has made if you're noting tranquility at the border, Jim it's because there's no way to get through it. And to the other side, Jim. Can you figure that out of no sign of the national emergency that the president has been talking about as a matter of fact, it's pretty tranquil down here. And if we build wall across that southern border the way the president envisions it that will be the story from one end of that border to the other. And that's what we're talking about eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine to three WD case that kind of obtuse out of touch lack of awareness that characterizes so much of not only the report Taj about the punditry on stations like see an an M S N B, C and other alphabet news networks out to the phone lines. We go on an open mouth edition of the John McCullough show to speak with Tim in Wesland about the border wall. Tim, thanks for calling. Oh, thank you for taking the call. At Friday to you. Yes, sir. Thank you question. I have is if. President Trump declares the national emergency and orders military bills wall. Would it be only military personnel building the law like army corps engineers and people who are actually in military service? Or would they contract it out because if it's done other way like through congressional appropriation of one tenth of one percent of the budget? Then the money would go to private companies hiring private contractors, hiring people for labor who would benefit from the five point seven billion dollars getting spent on the law would then go buy cars and boats and houses, and whatever and there would be a great economic benefit to Americans. Or if the army corps engineers, do it. Most of the money stay within a governmental organization, of course, they'd have to buy steal from a private company. Then if they're doing most of the labor or most of the money just goes from one end of the military to the other little don't be engineers architects and surveyors who worked for the army corps of engineers to be sure there are people who are also responsible in private firms for the design some of the walls, the president has envisioned when there were four or five prototypes of these walls. Most of the people. Engage would be military. If this is done by executive action, but it does not of necessity mean there will be no private involvement. But there would definitely be more more private involvement. If it goes the other way without the national emergency, right? Yeah. But the goal in. This instance, would be to get the wall built at the other part of that is we could see largely private sector engagement, if ten Democrats would get off the stool of do nothing and vote in favor of border wall funding, Tim, then we'd see the private sector benefiting largely as you point out as a result of that decision. I wonder what about that escapes? The democrats. Well, it's Donald Trump's idea. That's right. That's exactly right. Ten you? Eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine to three W D T K, the obtuse nature of Jim Acosta's reporting, notwithstanding president of the United States wants folks to know as he made that surveilling of the southern border this week. He believes that the only reason we aren't doing that construction now and using private contractors is because Democrats just don't want to support the idea because it's as our last caller said Donald Trump while I'm going to see how.

"All the elected officials, including Republican colleague oppose wall oppose the intervention. That Trump is talking about and AllState that this is a manufactured crisis and a crisis that manufactured by the Trump administration. Manufactured crisis is this manufactured, Raul. I answered your question. No. You didn't is this manufactured, Raul. I answered your question. Karen? So sad. So sad. So that's that's the latest there. The Trump administration is really they're on it. Now is this not what you want to see is not getting you excited. The president tried to play nice with Paul Ryan, by the way, Paul notice. The president's any nice about Paul Ryan is he left, right? So even Lindsey Graham who had the nickname Lindsey Graham nasty while John McCain was alive. Lindsey Graham is asking the president to declare an emergency. He said Thursday speaker Pelosi's refusal to negotiate on wall barrier funding, even if the government would it be reopened virtually ends congressional path to fund the wall barrier. Oh, so here we go again, Washington Post reporting, Trump is asking the army corps, if they can begin construction within forty five days and the White House lawyers preparing a legal defense. You keep saying that you know, I have the right to do this. And he does we went over it yesterday. The stories on my Facebook page Facebook dot com slash Gary Lewis radio congress passed. Law nineteen Seventy-six giving the president power to declare emergencies. Obama used it for the swine flu Bush used it for nine eleven it happens. This is a big deal and for dopes to sit back and say, well, this is a slippery slope because a Democrat's gonna get in there and say, we have a we have a crisis an emergency too, many gun deaths. We're going to collect all the guns. That's not going to happen. Get over it. No. Knocking to happen. The president's going to do this. And. The White House has asked the director of the army corps engineers divert money, so the border wall funding from disaster funding to cover wildfires in California hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, and we go, well, that's just not fair. You know what I get it? There's dangerous first California do good enough job getting rid of the dead dead trees. They don't trim their force enough. They don't do that kind of stuff, and they have they have fires. They don't do. They're supposed to do hurricanes. We may not may not get them. I I understand it. Now. What makes? Hurricane disasters. More important than the disasters of open borders, costing one hundred thirty five billion a year. Why why is that more important? You don't think that we can see the direct damage of illegal immigration? Of course, of course. The garbage argument is what it is. Absolutely garbage argument. USA today had an exclusive Pentagon prepares options to build border wall. Trump weighs emergency declaration. They said this navy captain bills speaks Pentagon spokesman said the department of defense is reviewing available authorities and funding mechanisms to identify options to enable border barrier construction as there has not been such declaration made. It'd be inappropriate to comment further on those efforts. But they've been told get ready. And again, Trump said if this doesn't work out meaning getting a deal to get funding. He said I will said I'll do it. I would almost say definitely we have plenty of funds. If there's a national emergency. They come from Pentagon budget for construction projects approved by congress. But not yet spent we thought that that's the law. This is real this is fine. And you have some dopey Republicans Republican congressman MAC Thornberry. He says he doesn't like it easy doesn't want to divert money because the money from the mill diverting the money for the military would prevent it. For example, from building barracks to house troops. Get them some more money than they just got seven hundred billion dollars. They got a seven hundred billion dollar defense department budget. Pretty sure we could find five point seven billion. Simple as that. I look I want the military to be housed. We we need barracks. I get it. Do they not have barracks now? We're growing military. They anymore. I think the walls pretty damn important. And I love it. You do if you read all these stories, and if you don't you probably be more sane than me at this point. But you know, what the major problem the media has you know, what I keep saying. I keep seeing this written over and over and over again. The president does does this. He's going to he's going to have to deal with a firestorm of criticism. Oh well. The deal with every day. Wait, I may not doesn't say that. It's illegal. They're saying he is going to deal with a firestorm of criticism. Not a firestorm of criticism. That's gotta hurt. There will be lawsuits, and again, how are you gonna win that way? You could try it in the courts public opinion. First off your suing to make sure we can't secure the country. Awesome. Secondly. These supreme court again, the rush this through they will speed it up. And I'm telling you supreme court unless you never know what John friggin Roberts up there. But I'm telling you, it's going to be okay. There have been presidents that have used this power. Unless they get political too. I don't see how they say. No. Eight eight zero eight eight zero five six seventy you know, what the media also is not making a big deal of that on their own networks. There are Democrats starting to say, you know, what I'm actually okay with a Waller offense. Because they realized this is a losing argument, and it looks really bad for them. That they don't want America to be secure. Wait till you hear that. That's coming up. Do not go anywhere. We gotta get to Martha and Kirstin cinema as well. And a restaurant that was forced to change its name and a model a hot models saying what the key to marriage is all these things. Happy Friday morning ritual back and five K S T AM seven hundred Tucson's. Most stimulating talk the morning ritual with Garrett Lewis. Yes. So this is this is a very very very important thing. Sickness colds fluids out there. People sneeze saliva the germs. Where do they go to your carpet? It's about time..
